Solar activity was very low. Region 2896 (S17W48, Axx/alpha) was quiet and stable. Several small spots emerged in the vicinity of Region 2897 (N15W28, Bxo/beta), but it was otherwise unremarkable. New region 2898 (S23E46, Cro/beta) was numbered this period, but it too was quiet. A few new spots emerged late in the period near S32E03 and will be considered for numbering next period if they persist. No Earth-directed CMEs were observed in available coronagraph imagery.
The solar kp index is quiet, with no changes to retrograde effects. The solar wind speed is currently above average, making retrograde effects moderately increased.
Solar wind parameters continued to diminish over the period as CH HSS effects wane. Solar wind speed decreased from approximately 545 km/s to near 485 km/s. Total field ranged from 1-5 nT while the Bz component was between +/-5 nT. Phi angle was mostly negative.
There is a 10% chance of solar activity, with a 1% chance of a minor event, a 1% chance of a moderate event, and a 1% chance of a strong event.

The moon in cancer is your healing time. While your emotions are in focus, reach out to friends and family and remind them that they're important. Quality time is good, but be careful to maintain your independence and not become too reliant on others during this kick-back-and-chill time.
Be a home body for a while during the Cancer Moon, and spend some time with yourself.
