3D Bennu

Explanation: Put on your red/blue glasses and float next to asteroid 101955 Bennu. Shaped like a spinning toy top with boulders littering its rough surface, the tiny Solar System world is about one Empire State Building (less than 500 meters) across. Frames used to construct this 3D anaglyph were taken by PolyCam on the OSIRIS_REx spacecraft on December 3, 2018 from a distance of about 80 kilometers. With a sample from the asteroid’s rocky surface on board, OSIRIS_REx departed Bennu’s vicinity this May and is now enroute to planet Earth. The robotic spacecraft is scheduled to return the sample to Earth in September 2023.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You will be keen to work hard and get better organized in the next four weeks. In fact, you will apply these high standards to every aspect of your life, which is why you will do whatever you can to improve your health as well. “It’s the new wrinkle free me!”

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Home and family are your primary focus for the next four weeks. Many will be involved more than usual with a parent. All of you will want to cocoon at home and focus on your private world. Nevertheless, Venus will encourage social outings and Mars will encourage communications with others.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

The pace of your days will accelerate in the next four weeks because suddenly you’re busy! Errands, appointments, short trips plus increased reading and writing are just some reasons you will be on the go! Many will work to improve the appearance of their home.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Your personal year is coming to an end; however, your new year will not begin until the Sun enters your sign, four weeks from now. Therefore, use this next window of time to look over your shoulder. How well are you doing at the art of living? How do you want next year to be different?

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

For the next four weeks, the Sun will be at high noon in your chart, something that can happen only once a year.

Birthday Horoscope

IF YOUR BIRTHDAY IS OCTOBER 23, then you are a romantic at heart. You are a mysterious Scorpio, however. You tend to expect a certain level of loyalty from your friends and you have some idealistic notions about love.

If today is your birthday, you are also a distinctive person. In a relationship, you have a tendency to keep it private but demand a lot. Ironically, you’d make a great private investigator. People born today are known to have unmistakable gut instinct.

When it comes to you and your family, you guys are close. You love your siblings and find that you are not as close to your cousins. The October 23rd birthday personality is affectionate and spiritual. You practice meditation generally in your daily routine as a part of relaxation techniques.

Mostly, you could be vulnerable especially when you are sleep deprived. Those of you born on this day could be lazy when it comes to relationships. Perhaps, you should find a balance between the two.

The 23rd October birthday love compatibility predictions show that you are a hopeless romantic. You love to be seduced and to do the seducing.

Although you don’t particularly care for hanging all out in public, you like to touch in private. Loyalty is a must if you want to be in a relationship with this Scorpio birthday person. You just don’t like a lot of attention like other Scorpions.

As the 23 October birthday zodiac sign is Scorpio, you are likely to be very close to your family members especially when it comes to your siblings. You still enjoy playing around with them possibly having memories of when you were naughty children.

You may have better parenting skills because of your close upbringing. Some friendships can be compared to as extensions of the family as well. As a lover, you can be so very passionate and creative.

The October 23 birthday horoscope also predicts that you may have idealistic dreams and hopes but you know how to handle your paper. Money may not be the most important thing to you. It could be possible that you haven’t found your professional niche. Someone like you may be interested in the thrill of a certain position. If it tests your skills and knowledge or even, a gift of having certain power that you need to improve on, you will do it.

Career options for the 23 October birthday personality are many. You are suited for many occupations especially when it comes to legal affairs or law enforcement. It gives you pleasure and satisfaction knowing that you can turn a negative situation into a winning campaign.

As the October 23rd birthday astrology rightly says, you can be an individual who is bloodthirsty and possibly manipulative. These qualities could be your downfall or you can use them as a positive feature. Your reputation is at stake so make your decisions carefully. Whatever field you choose, you will likely go at it with a lot of determination and with a competitive spirit.

When it comes to your health, Scorpio, you lack the ambition to work out. You have a tendency to think that maintenance is not necessary because your overall health is in good condition. However, you could spruce up your tennis game. It’s a great outdoor activity and it could be fun with the right person or people.

In the meantime, meditation seems to be working for you as a sleep aid. Your eating habits can contribute to your sleep patterns as well. Be sure to take your vitamins every day to get the maximum effects from them.

You are a mysterious Scorpio if you were born on October 23. You keep your business to yourself but would make an awesome detective or police officer. You enjoyed your childhood with your brothers and sisters and still embrace them with so much love and tenderness.

The October 23 birthday meaning suggests that you are determined to succeed as you have a competitive trait as well. Generally, your health is up for a challenge so, you should find a work out tailored just for someone born today.

I am Sorry for the Lack of Usual Post

So, I got a refurbished laptop and within a month it had a major problem. It went into sleep mode and would not come out of it. Yesterday WISH online shopping finally sent me the label to send it back. I went last evening and got it started on it way back to WISH. Which left me with either my desktop computer, which I can only sit at for about an hour until my back pain is so bad I have to lay down, or my Kindle tablet which takes me twice as long to post through. My wonderful fiancée took me to Rent-A-Center where he had coupons for a nice reduction in price for a brand new laptop, which I am using now. When we got home with it last evening I could not get on to use it. So, I put it aside very frustrated but I must have done something right because I did not have to take it back to the store to be able to use my own account on it. But as I was having a horrible morning I did not pick this laptop up to try to get on to it again until about 15 minutes ago and now here we are.

Now I have to take this one back because the Delete key doesn’t work. I give up for today. Looks like I will only be doing the daily and birthday horoscopes later today.

Prepare the Jar for the Spell:

Write the persons full name onto the piece of paper as you think about the wrongs they have done to you then fold it in 3. Keeping thinking of your intention for the person to suffer only as much as what they did to you. Pour half of the egg shells or black salt into the jar, place the paper in the jar and pour the rest of the crushed egg shells or black salt over it, stop when the jar is full to just under the lid.

THE SPELL:

Remember to keep your intention in the fore front of your mind as you say the spell at 3 times. The more you repeat it the stronger it will be but be careful so it does not do more to the person than they did to you or you may wind up feeling everything done to you again.

Moon Alert

There are no restrictions to shopping or important decisions today. The Moon is in Taurus.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

There’s tough energy in the air today. For some, it will trigger arguments and disputes with partners, close friends and authority figures. However, you can also use this same feisty energy to get things done. A wiser and more productive choice. Ya think?

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Disputes about politics, religion and racial issues might easily arise today. Don’t even go there. This is a waste of energy. Instead, use this same energy to be productive at work. You can also use this energy to work out or get physical exercise. Your choice.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Parents must be patient with their kids today to avoid confrontations. Likewise, romantic partners need to be patient with each other to avoid nasty arguments. Meanwhile, this same energy to fight, can be channeled in a different way and used in sports or creative ways.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Family conflicts and domestic arguments might take place today. However, you have a choice. Instead, you can use this same energy to shove furniture around and make improvements at home, especially improvements that require physical energy. This choice is a no-brainer.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Today you are high viz., which is why people might know personal details about your private life. (Like, what’s with that?) This might put you on edge, which in turn, could trigger arguments. Do not say something you will later regret. Keep busy.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Money disputes are likely today, or perhaps disputes about something that you own. To put a positive spin on this, look for ways to improve what you already own. You might see new uses and applications for it. (Could that rusty barbecue be a shabby chic floor lamp?) No. Thought so.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Right now, the Sun, retrograde Mercury and fiery Mars are all in your sign, which totally hypes your energy! You can use this energy to argue with others, or you can use this energy to improve something, especially your own body or your appearance. You choose.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You might feel rankled or suspicious about something going on behind the scenes. Don’t let this get you down. You are excellent at dealing with hidden agendas. (“Secrets” is my middle name.) Be investigative and resist the urge to retaliate against someone. Easy does it.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This is a popular time for you especially because you might be involved with younger people and people you haven’t seen for a while – people from your past. You’re very good at keeping your trap line fresh because you know how to stay in touch with others. Avoid arguments today.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

People admire you now; meanwhile, some of you are involved with parents and bosses you haven’t seen for a while. This could be an opportunity for some serious catch up. Resist the urge to defy authority or be rebellious or challenge someone today. It’s not worth it.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You might be involved in feisty discussions about politics, religion, racial and social issues today. They could be nasty. It’s impossible to fight prejudice because prejudice was never based on logical facts in the first place. Avoid these disputes. Enjoy discussions with creative pals.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You might be at odds with someone today about shared property, inheritances, insurance issues or something to do with debt or what you hold jointly with someone else. This could involve shared responsibilities. Don’t waste today slogging it out in a fight. Instead, use this energy to look for a win/win solution.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Andrew Scott (1976) shares your birthday today. You have a wide emotional range because you are a sensitive person. You are capable of passion and subtlety. You are charming, intelligent and capable of inspiring others. This is the last year of a nine-year cycle for you, which means you will be wrapping up things that need to be finished to make room for new beginnings next year.

IF YOUR BIRTHDAY IS ON OCTOBER 21, you are a loyal Libra. You are able to communicate effectively with others and with those from different backgrounds and social status.

Where you feel most appreciated and energetic is in a social setting surrounded by people who admire you. People flock to you to hear your jokes or your stories.

Mainly, they respect your ability to share your experiences openly. In addition, the 21st October birthday personality tends to be there for friends no matter what differences of opinion they may have.

As the October 21st birthday horoscope rightly predicts you are fun to be around and perhaps a little naughty. You love to play and joke around… maybe you are a rebellious Libra.

Whatever could be said about you, courageous is one of them. If there is a social rule to be broken, you are likely the one to break it. Even as a parent, you are still a lot of fun or at least that is what the children say.

As the 21 October birthday zodiac sign is Libra, you are relatively emotional individuals. You are very sensitive. At times, others and their needs overwhelm you.

If today is your birthday, you are an affectionate person who sometimes takes on too much of other people’s problems. Making decisions can be painful for you but for the most part, you balance out the good and the bad.

The October 21 birthday astrology analysis shows that your family and friends are very important to you. This Libran is spiritual and it shows. You never turn away anyone who is in need. You are always concerned with doing the right thing. As a lover, you are intense, carefree and extremely impulsive and romantic. In fact, you look for those same qualities in a mate.

When it comes to your work, you take great pride in knowing that you are not limited to one profession. Versatile, intelligent, and success-oriented can describe the person with an October 21st zodiac birthday.

With your natural talents, you are well suited to work in the advertising industry or to be a professor at the local university. More so, a compatible occupation for a Libra born today is in public relations or in the legal field.

Since the October 21 birthday personality is multi-talented, you have a tendency to switch jobs more than any other zodiac sign. Those born on this birthday are people who like things done their way. Be watchful of your financial status before you make this move as it could decrease your savings and spending.

The 21 October birthday meanings show that your health is generally good except for one thing. You have a tendency to over-eat. Some of you born on this day fight obesity because of this and because of your love for sweets.

Nonetheless, it is easy to avoid this if you want to. Walks in the park or a bike ride about 3 times a week will help keep you slim and trim. Moreover, it is a good cardio workout. You will need to use self-discipline in order to do this.

The October 21st Libra birthday people are usually joyful and attract others like bees to honey. Your goal in life is to make others happy and better it would seem. You may be slow to make a decision sometimes but you will make the best possible answer.

However, one should not bring too many problems to this Libra’s table because this will engulf the person born on this day. You are more concerned with keeping things serene and beautiful. Having the ability to see each person’s point of view allows you to do this.

SH2-308: The Dolphin-Head Nebula

Image Credit & Copyright: Nik Szymanek

Explanation: Blown by fast winds from a hot, massive star, this cosmic bubble is huge. Cataloged as Sharpless 2-308 it lies some 5,000 light-years away toward the constellation of the Big Dog (Canis Major) and covers slightly more of the sky than a Full Moon. That corresponds to a diameter of 60 light-years at its estimated distance. The massive star that created the bubble, a Wolf-Rayet star, is the bright one near the center of the nebula. Wolf-Rayet stars have over 20 times the mass of the Sun and are thought to be in a brief, pre-supernova phase of massive star evolution. Fast winds from this Wolf-Rayet star create the bubble-shaped nebula as they sweep up slower moving material from an earlier phase of evolution. The windblown nebula has an age of about 70,000 years. Relatively faint emission captured by narrowband filters in the deep image is dominated by the glow of ionized oxygen atoms mapped to a blue hue. Presenting a mostly harmless outline, SH2-308 is also known as The Dolphin-head Nebula.

Good Morning or Afternoon or Evening

To me the represents the Sun God from Ancient Egypt RA ( also know as From Wikipedia List of Solar Deities) and the Moon Goddess Luna (also known as  From Wikipedia List of Lunar Deities)

Fall has definitely started here in Illinois. I checked the temperature to know how to dress to take our 3 fur kids out. The Weather Channel app on my cellphone says it’s 51⁰F but feels like 46⁰F. I’m going to need more the my thin hoodie this morning which is fine with me. I like the cooler temperatures, watching the last flowers of the year bloom, farmers gathering their crops, leaves changing and falling as Gaia/Mother Earth gets ready for her winter slumber.

There’s nothing in nature that I like more than a good snowstorm preferably when all my loves ones are home safe and sound. To me one of the best things in my life is to curl up on our enclosed front porch in my warm winter fleece shirt and pants and wrapped in a comforter with my cup of 1/2 coffee, 1/2 hot chocolate and just let my mind go wherever it wants too.

In the summer I like to sit outside on the front stoop with either a cold soda or water or iced coffee early in the morning as light eats away at the darkness or as the darkness eats away at the light. This year because of moving to farm country I got to enjoy a still small fawn come with its mother watching over it to nibble on the grass or the older bucks and does coming to graze along the tree line on the hill. Listening to the sounds of frogs and other wildlife that enjoy living in a swampy environment. Seeing a Fox looking for food. Again I let my mind go wherever it wants too.

I did not realize for a long time that when I sit outside at dusk and dawn when it is warmer or inside all toasty warm when it is cooler that this is a form of meditation. For some people that cannot quite their thinking to do what most people refer to as meditation this is a good alternative. I have found this type of random letting my mind ramble that I am able to communicate with and get answers to questions I have asked my Spirit Guides sometimes months ago. It is also a time for me to reflect on how I might change things about myself or decide what I want to accomplish during the day.

Another reason I like winter is most of the things that bother my allergies go dormant for a few months. The biggest negative for me with the change of the seasons is the temperature fluctuation bring about bad fibromyalgia flares and my joints hurt more but this is all part of my body dealing with getting older and helping me to remember I am it is not a child anymore. Although I love letting my inner child come out for a while every day through coloring, our writing a silly story, or doing arts and crafts, while watching cartoons and still getting a good laugh out of most of them.

SHHHH… don’t tell on me but this winter I plan on getting my fiancée, Big Dawg (he got the name when he did canine law enforcement training in his younger years…shoulder shrug) into a snowball fight as this man really needs to find his inner child. He is a warm, loving, and consider man but really needs to lighten up a bit. Remember this info is just between us.

He doesn’t even like to give out anything to child for trick or treating…yes this year that is changing and I am giving out cute Halloween themed pencils. No candy as there are a few people every year that have to many negative nasties around them and/or to much negative energy inside of them and the aura that try to hurt children by putting needles, pins, pieces of not edible things into candy or whatever kind of edible they are passing out to unsuspecting children.

Ok here I’m going to gray magic but I would love to have just one of the people to forget that they have poisoned the candy they are handing out and eat one themselves. This is the one Shabbat that I do a Justice spell, I wrote a few years ago, not aimed at one specific person but at humanity as a whole through out the USA. What the intention of the spell is that the person get equal negative energy or negative whatever they have put out towards another person or persons. That they mean or bad person gets no more but no less than they put out or did to someone else. That spell will be going up today.

What is your favorite season and why? Do you remember to embrace your inner child? If you do not please try it, it make living life as an adult so much more fun. If you allow your inner child out, how do you do it? I am really looking for more ways to let mine out. I am anxiously awaiting the first wet snow to fall to make a snowman and snow angels.

A tidbit about my sister Lady Silver Sage likes the season of Fall or Autumn the best out of the four.
