The Sun

Solar activity reached low levels today as both a C1 and C3 flare were observed at 16/1257 UTC and 16/1511 UTC off the SE limb in the vicinity of Region 2774 (S24, L=313). Associated CMEs were observed in SOHO/LASCO C2 imagery beginning at 16/1325 UTC and 16/1603 UTC, respectively. Due to their location just beyond the SW limb, they are not expected to have a geoeffective component.

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

Solar wind parameters were at nominal levels with solar wind speeds ranging from 286-332 km/s. Total field ranged from 1-7 nT while the Bz component was between +6/-4 nT. Phi angle was variable.

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 Scorpio, at 04 degrees, 02' 44", at a velocity of 15.28 degrees per day.

The New moon is currently 0.8 days old. It is 363356.99 km from the centre of the Earth.

The next new moon is at 5:08:54, 15 Nov, 2020. The next full moon is at 9:32:04, 30 Nov, 2020.

Scorpio's moon reminds you to avoid distractions. Your emotions are likely running pretty strong, so make sure to focus and don't take things too personally. Don't jump to conclusions. That said, those strong emotions might be useful in your love life!

Notice that you're reacting a little more harshly. You're going to be a little more passionate. You're likely to push your limits. Take advantage of this to be more introspective of your feelings and let them guide you.
