What's Going On?

The Gregorian Calendar

The Gregorian calendar is the modern calendar widely used throughout the world. It was an improvement upon the previously popular Julian Calendar that was off by 11 minutes causing a drift of about 3 days every 400 years. This drift upset the Christian Liturgical calendar because it caused the Vernal Equinox to fall gradually earlier and earlier, which affected the date of Easter. The Gregorian calendar was adopted by papal bull decreed by Pope Gregory XIII in 1582.

The Full Moon

The full moon occurs approximately every 29.53 days on about the 14th -17th lunar day when the entire moon is visible from Earth because it is on the opposite side of the Earth from the sun. If the moon passes through the Earth's shadow during this time, a lunar eclipse occurs. This happens about every six months.

Scorpio

The Sun enters Scorpio on or about the 21st day of October and leaves Scorpio on or about the 21st day of November. The new moon during this period will occur in Scorpio. The full moon in Scorpio occurs in April or May when the Sun is in the opposite sign, Taurus. Scorpio is most popularly associated with passions, lust and violence, deception, secrets and hidden wisdom, transformation, death and rebirth.

Topaz

Topaz is a silicate mineral { Al2SiO4(F,OH)2 or aluminum fluorosilicate }that forms beautiful prismatic crystals. Pure topaz is clear though topaz often contains impurities that cause the brilliant colors we know and love. Precious topaz is orange. Imperial topaz is yellow, pink or pink-orange, Blue topaz is blue, but usually pale. It is often irradiated to darken the blue color. Red and pink topaz are the rarest color varieties of this stone. Mystic topaz is colorless topaz with a layer of titanium to give it an iridescent effect.

New Moon

The new moon is the first phase of the moon. Traditionally, it occurs when the first waxing crescent of the moon in visible in the sky. Astronomically, it occurs when the moon is the closest to the sun as seen from the Earth. This takes place right in the middle of the dark moon period so the moon is not visible at this time unless there is a solar eclipse when its shadow is visible against the sun.
