Pluto is currently in retrograde, with 150 days left. Hang in there!
Very low solar activity continued, and sunspots were not observed on the visible disk. No Earth-directed CMEs were noted in available coronagraph imagery.
The solar kp index is quiet, with no changes to retrograde effects. The solar wind speed is currently normal.
There is currently only one planet in retrograde.
Don’t expect that transformative events just kind of slow down and things mellow during this retrograde cycle, because it does not work that way. Pluto’s going backwards alright, right down into your shadow. It’s a good time to unpack some baggage lest you start projection vomiting it everywhere.
The Solar System at a Glance
Solar wind conditions indicated a slow solar wind regime. Total IMF strength ranged primarily from 4 to 6 nT; while the Bz component underwent a few periods of prolonged southward direction. Solar wind speed was mostly between 300-350 km/s and the phi angle was primarily negative.
There is a 10% 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.
