The Powerball jackpot was last won on August 3, when a ticket in Pennsylvania matched all five white balls and the red Powerball to win a $206.9 million jackpot. Since then, the game has had 37 drawings in a row without a grand prize winner.
As the US Powerball hovers at the one billion dollar prize on Halloween 2022, you wonder if its worth it to invest a few bucks in the Powerball. Is it worth it? Will the Powerball prize drop on your location?

(Astrology Explored) October’s full moon is called The Hunter’s Moon, named as the time when our ancestors would hunt meat in preparation of winter.
Or so they say. Or perhaps there is another answer here, as this full moon will always tenant in the sign of Aries, the god of sex and war. He had several female counterparts, one being Venus, the evolution of the ancient Sumerian goddess of war Ianna and with whom he had an ongoing torrid affair. Another is the primordial goddess of strife, Eris, who he hung around with Aries at battlefields, and Artemis, who he argued with often.

October 8th & 9th, 2022, brings us the peak of the Draconid meteor shower.
Predicted peak: October 9, 2022, at 1 UTC (evening of October 8 for the Americas).
When to watch: There’s no dark window for watching the Draconids in 2022. If you want to watch in moonlight, try the evening of October 8.
Overall duration of shower: October 8 through 9.
Radiant: Highest in the sky in the evening hours. See chart below.
Nearest moon phase: Full moon is 20:55 UTC on October 9. In 2022, the full or nearly full moon will drown most Draconid meteors from view.
Expected meteors at peak, under ideal conditions: Under a dark sky with no moon, you might catch 10 Draconid meteors per hour.
Note: The Draconid shower is a real oddity, in that the radiant point stands highest in the sky as darkness falls. That means that, unlike many meteor showers, more Draconids are likely to fly in the evening hours than in the morning hours after midnight. This shower is usually a sleeper, producing only a handful of languid meteors per hour in most years. But watch out if the Dragon awakes! In rare instances, fiery Draco has been known to spew forth many hundreds of meteors in a single hour. That possibility keeps many skywatchers outside – even in moonlight – during this shower. https://earthsky.org/astronomy-essentials/everything-you-need-to-know-draconid-meteor-shower/
Draco in Greek mythology has an interesting history.

New Age Fairs Resume This Month!
New Age Fair – Sunday, July 17, 2022
10:00 AM – 4:00 PM
free admission – free parking –
Come with a Friend and Make a day of it!
After a hiatus of more than two years, the popular ASC New Age Fairs resume Sunday, July 17, 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM, at the Keeney Memorial Cultural Center, 200 Main St., Wethersfield (our regular location for years).
Some modifications are planned as a result of continuing concerns about COVID and its evolving variants. Masks are encouraged (and required for anyone unvaccinated). To allow us all to be a little more spread out, we will have fewer readers, vendors and wellness practitioners. The kitchen won’t have a full line-up of refreshments, only some beverages. You are welcome to bring your own lunch or snacks, and we plan to have a couple food trucks on site.
Solar Eclipse: Horoscope below the fold.
(Astrology Explored) A dramatic ring of fire solar eclipse fills the sky in the upper East Coast of the United States and Canada. It begins to be visible at the southernmost edge to 4:12 EDT and ends in Moscow at 11:26 AM EDT.
(Astrology Explored) The only sound in my office is the tapping of my pen on my notebook. I look at the clock again. Damn it, the woman promised to be here yesterday, but then again, she’s not the most punctual. Then she canceled at the last minute, blaming it on Mercury in Retrograde, and promising with a “pretty please with a cherry on top,” to make our appointment today.
About to give up on the whole thing, my doorbell rang, and there she stood with a smile and a bunch of flowers in her hand. She wore a draped gossamer moonshine dress and silver sandals with straps that wound around her calves. It was the perfect outfit to commemorate her move into the sign of Cancer.
“Hello, Venus,” I said.
