October 22, 2022 Current Moon Phase

The Moon’s current phase for today and tonight is a Waning Crescent phase. In this phase the Moon’s illumination is growing smaller each day until the New Moon. During this part of the Moon cycle, the Moon is getting closer to the Sun as viewed from Earth and the night side of the Moon is facing the Earth with only a small edge of the Moon being illuminated. This phase is best viewed an hour or 2 before the sunrise and can be quite beautiful if you’re willing to get up early. It can also be a great time to see the features of the Moon’s surface. Along the edge where the illuminated portion meets the dark side, the craters and mountains cast long shadows making them easier to observe with a telescope or binoculars.

A Thought for Today

Blessed be dear sisters, brothers, and honored guests may your life be filled with all things positive!

Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or major decisions from 6:15 AM to 12:45 PM EDT today (3:15 AM to 9:45 AM PDT). After that, the Moon moves from Leo into Virgo.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

After the Moon Alert today, you want to get better organized. Important discussions will take place with partners and close friends, and you know that if you’ve done your homework, these discussions will be productive. Check things out.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This is a solid day for you. Things will tend to go your way. Admittedly, conversations with coworkers might be heated, especially about ideas to improve your job or improve the appearance of something. You might be able to improve your health today. Bonus!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Quite likely, you have a strong focus on home today. Issues with kids might be emotional. (Be patient. Remember you were a kid once yourself.) Romantic issues will be heated today, which could cause a problem because someone feels obsessed about something. Lighten up!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This is a busy day with intense conversations. In particular, you might have strong feelings about a redecorating project or entertaining at home, which will make family discussions intense. You want to persuade others to see things from your point of view. (So say we all.)

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Today your focus is on money, cash flow and earnings. Nevertheless, a discussion with a colleague, neighbour or sibling will be intense because you want to persuade them to agree with you, or see things from your point of view. You will probably succeed.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

For most of this day, (plus Friday and Saturday), the Moon is in your sign, which gives you an edge over all the other signs. That’s why intense, financial discussions might go in your favour today. Likewise, if you’re shopping and you are keen to buy something, you will probably get it.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You have strong feelings today! In fact, you might feel obsessed about something. Possibly, it relates to your appearance or the appearance of something in your immediate surroundings. (Others often fail to understand how you are affected by your surroundings.)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Today is a bit of a mixed bag. In one way, you want to play things low-key from behind the scenes. That’s just fine. However, a conversation with a female acquaintance will be important to you. It might be a dispute about shared property or shared responsibilities.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Today and tomorrow, you will be much more in the public eye than usual. In fact, some people might know personal details about your private life. This might be why you have such an intense discussion with a friend today, perhaps an artistic or creative choice?

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

As this day wears on, your desire for adventure and stimulation will grow. Be smart. Satisfy this urge by doing something different! If you can travel, by all means, do so. Go someplace you’ve never been before. Be a tourist in your own town. Talk to people from other backgrounds and different cultures.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Today, you might have a passionate encounter with someone from another culture. You might also have strong feelings about travel or legal or medical matters today. Meanwhile, take care of loose details with bills, taxes or shared property. Get your ducks lined up in a row. (Whew!)

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

After the Moon Alert today, you will have to go more than halfway when dealing with others. No biggie. This simply requires accommodation, courtesy and an ability to listen to what someone else is saying, especially if you’re encountering disputes about shared values or shared property.

If Your Birthday Is Today

US Vice President, Kamala Harris (1964) shares your birthday today. You are compassionate, warm and fun-loving. Obstacles do not daunt you. This year is the last year of a nine-year cycle for you, which means it’s time to take inventory; and let go of people, places and possessions that have held you back. Good time to commune with nature.

Although you dislike routines, you should make time and a schedule for exercise.

Pillars of Creation

Explanation: A now famous picture from the Hubble Space Telescope featured these star forming columns of cold gas and dust light-years long inside M16, the Eagle Nebula, dubbed the Pillars of Creation. This James Webb Space Telescope NIRCam image expands Hubble’s exploration of that region in greater detail and depth inside the iconic stellar nursery. Particularly stunning in Webb’s near infrared view is the telltale reddish emission from knots of material undergoing gravitational collapse to form stars within the natal clouds. The Eagle Nebula is some 6,500 light-years distant. The larger bright emission nebula is itself an easy target for binoculars or small telescopes. M16 lies along the plane of our Milky Way galaxy in a nebula rich part of the sky, toward the split constellation Serpens Cauda (the tail of the snake).
