The Sun

Solar activity remained very low. Region 2776 (S12E54, Cro/beta) exhibited consolidation in the leader spot. No Earth-directed CMEs were observed in available coronagraph imagery.

The solar kp index is quiet, with no changes to retrograde effects. The solar wind speed is currently normal.

Solar wind parameters, as measured by the DSCOVR spacecraft, reflected nominal conditions. Total magnetic field strength reached 8 nT late in the period in conjunction with an increase in density. Solar wind speeds were very slow, between ~255-300 km/s. Phi angle was predominantly oriented in the negative sector.

There is a 5% chance of solar activity, with a 1% chance of a minor event, a 1% chance of a moderate event, and a 1% chance of a strong event.

The Moon

The moon is currently in Libra, at 18 degrees, 44' 14", at a velocity of 15.31 degrees per day.

The New moon is currently 29.1 days old. It is 363597.38 km from the centre of the Earth.

The next new moon is at 19:32:14, 16 Oct, 2020. The next full moon is at 14:51:29, 31 Oct, 2020.

Balance is the keyword with the moon in Libra. Resolve those conflicts and promote harmony. Be the diplomat you know you can be, but remember to stand your ground when you're strong on a point. You can be accommodating without giving in.

When the Moon is in the accommodating sign of Libra, you want to create tranquility and harmony. Libra doesn’t just appreciate balance, Libra also seeks out imbalance and gets medieval on it. Give in to that urge to win the Peace Prize. Libra’s sandbox is diplomacy, so the Moon in Libra gives you the ability to use your charm to get what you want.
