The Moon is still in enterprising Aries and in her Waxing Gibbous phase, for most of the day, with 93% illumination. Luna will enter slow, deliberate Taurus, later tonight (at 9:18 pm). We also have an extended eclipse in Taurus on Friday. Fascinatingly, the Beaver Full Moon Lunar Eclipse then will be the longest of the century! (It will last 3 hours, 28 minutes, and 23 seconds.) Native Americans reportedly named the first Full Moon of November the Beaver Moon because this is the time beavers would be most active in the preparation for winter. It was also the time to set traps before the swamps froze to ensure a good supply of furs for the winter.
The probing Scorpio Sun’s sextile to transformational Pluto (4:01 pm) today is thought to be an excellent influence for deepening our perspective, often offering us more insight into our own inner workings and the motivations of others. It’s also compatible with renovation projects. It can additionally be a boon for research matters or investigations, including helping to solve or crack old mysteries. Kind of an interesting tie-in here, too, with this aspect, is a story on Alzheimer’s that is trending on Twitter this morning. The Telegraph is reporting: “A vaccine against Alzheimer’s disease could be on the horizon after scientists carried out successful trials in animals. Researchers from the US and Germany were able to reverse memory loss in mice and are keen to move quickly to human trials.” It is estimated that 1 in 9 people age 65 and older have the disease.

Born On This Day: African-American musician, teacher, and bandleader W.C. Handy, in 1873, in Florence, Alabama. He referred to himself as “Father of the Blues.” Handy was one of the most influential songwriters in the United States. He did not create the blues genre but was the first to publish music in the blues form (Delta blues), thereby taking the blues from a regional music style with a limited audience to a new level of popularity. (Wikipedia) Handy once mused: “Life is like a trumpet. If you don’t put anything into it, you don’t get anything out.”
Hope it’s a good one! Please be safe and well.
