27 October Moon Goddess’ Current Phase

Today the Moon will be in a Waxing Gibbous phase. This phase is when the moon is more than 50% illuminated but not yet a Full Moon. The phase lasts round 7 days with the moon becoming more illuminated each day until the Full Moon. During a Waxing Gibbous the moon will rise in the east in mid-afternoon and will be high in the eastern sky at sunset. The moon is then visible though most of the night sky setting a few hour before sunrise. The word Gibbous first appeared in the 14th century and has its roots in the Latin word “gibbosus” meaning humpbacked.

Today’s Waxing Gibbous Phase

6 Famous Curses and Their Origins

Dig into the superstitions that surround King Tut’s tomb, the Hope Diamond and more.

Throughout history, people have promoted stories of curses for a variety of reasons. To sports fans, curses can help explain their favorite team’s loss. When a cause of death is misunderstood, curses can provide an explanation. For an imperial nation, curses can betray anxiety about being punished for colonizing and taking artifacts. And sometimes, curses come about because someone just wanted to make up a story.

Here are some prominent curses in history.

1. King Tut’s Curse (and Other ‘Mummy’s Curses’)

In February 1923, a British archaeological team opened the tomb of Tutankhamun, or “King Tut,” an Egyptian pharaoh during the 14th century B.C. Two months later, when the team’s sponsor died from a bacterial infection, British newspapers claimed without evidence that he’d died because of “King Tut’s curse.” Whenever subsequent members of the team died, the media dredged up the alleged curse again.

King Tut’s curse and other famous “mummy’s curses” were invented by Europeans and Americans while their countries removed priceless artifacts from Egypt. After the Titanic sank in 1912, some newspapers even promoted a conspiracy theory that the ship had sunk because of a “mummy’s curse.”

Though it’s not clear how many people actually took these “curses” seriously, these stories became extremely popular subjects for horror movies like The Mummy (1932) and its many iterations, as well as comedies like Mummy’s Boys (1936) and Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy (1955).

2. The Curse of the Polish King’s Tomb

In 1973, a group of archaeologists opened the tomb of the 15th-century Polish king Casimir IV Jagiellon in Kraków, Poland. As with the opening of King Tut’s tomb 50 years before, European media hyped up the event, and the researchers involved allegedly joked that they were risking a curse on the tomb by opening it.

When some of the team members began to die shortly after, some media outlets speculated it was due to a curse. Later, experts discovered traces of deadly fungi inside the tomb that can cause lung illnesses when breathed in. This was the cause of their deaths.

3. The Hope Diamond Curse

In the 1660s, the French gem dealer Jean-Baptiste Tavernier purchased a large diamond of unknown origin during a trip to India. Yet by the 20th century, a myth had sprung up in the United States and Europe that Tavernier had stolen the diamond from the statue of a Hindu goddess. The newspapers and jewelers who spread this story claimed the diamond was cursed and brought bad luck to those who owned it.

By 1839, the diamond supposedly ended up with Henry Philip Hope, a Dutch collector based in London and the source of the stone’s modern name—the Hope Diamond. Sometime after this, European and American newspapers began claiming that the Hope Diamond carried a curse.

The French jeweler Pierre Cartier reportedly used these stories to enhance the diamond’s value when he sold it to American heiress Evelyn Walsh McLean in the early 1910s. After she died, it went to a U.S. jewelry company, which exhibited it before donating it in 1958 to the Smithsonian Institution, where it remains today.

5. The Curse of Tippecanoe (or Tecumseh’s Curse)

In the mid-20th century, U.S. media began to note a pattern in presidential deaths. Starting with William Henry Harrison and ending with John F. Kennedy, every 20 years the country elected a president who would die in office.

Harrison, the first president to die in office, was elected in 1840. The other presidents who died in office include Abraham Lincoln, elected 1860 (and 1864); James A. Garfield, elected 1880; William McKinley, elected 1900; Warren G. Harding, elected 1920; Franklin D. Roosevelt, elected 1940 (as well as 1932, 1936 and 1944); and JFK, elected 1960. The only president between Harrison and JFK to fall outside of this pattern is Zachary Taylor, who was elected in 1848 and died in 1850.

In the 1930s, Ripley’s Believe It or Not claimed the “pattern” was due to a curse Shawnee Chief Tecumseh placed on Harrison and future presidents after Harrison’s troops defeated Tecumseh’s at the Battle of Tippecanoe in 1811. (Tecumseh died two years later in another battle against Harrison’s troops.) This story likely originated with non-Native Americans and bears a similarity to other “curses” in U.S. books and movies about disturbing Native burial grounds.

6. The Curse of Macbeth

There are lots of superstitions in the world of theatre. It’s bad luck to wish actors good luck, hence the reason people instead tell them to “break a leg.” And it’s also bad luck to say the word “Macbeth” in the theatre except during a performance of the Shakespeare play. Supposedly, this is because tragedy has historically befallen productions of the play. In reality, these stories are a mix of fabrication and selective evidence-picking.

The legend about the play seems to have started with Max Beerbohm, a British cartoonist and critic born in the 1870s, nearly three centuries after Macbeth’s first performance. Beerbohm—possibly annoyed that Macbeth was such a popular playmade up a story that the first actor cast to play Lady Macbeth died right before the play’s opening night.

Since then, this story has become part of a myth that the play is cursed and has brought bad luck to those involved with it. Though there have been real accidents during runs of Macbeth over its more than 400-year history, these accidents gain more attention than accidents during other plays because of the supposed “curse.”

7. The Billy Goat Curse on the Chicago Cubs

History of the Billy Goat Curse

As with theatre, there are also a lot of superstitions in the world of sports. One of the most famous is the supposed “billy goat curse” on the Chicago Cubs.

In 1945, a tavern owner named William “Billy Goat” Sianis was reportedly prevented from bringing his pet goat, Murphy, into Chicago’s Wrigley Field to see the Cubs play the Detroit Tigers in the World Series. Supposedly, Sianis put a curse on the Cubs, saying they wouldn’t win this or any other World Series ever again.

Before this, the Cubs had only won the World Series twice before, in 1907 and 1908. When they lost the World Series in 1945, the curse gained credence. In 2016, when the Cubs won the world series for the first time in over a century, U.S. media promoted the idea that the curse was broken.

The billy goat curse is similar to the curse of the Bambino, which supposedly began when the Boston Red Sox traded Babe Ruth in 1919 and ended when the team won the World Series in 2004. There’s also rapper Lil B’s curse on Kevin Durant, which Lil B issued in a 2011 tweet and lifted in 2017 in another tweet. When the Golden State Warriors won the NBA finals that year with Durant earning MVP, sports media jokingly (or not?) proclaimed that Lil B had helped by lifting the curse.

Zodiac Sign Virgo for the Birthday Horoscope Born on 27 October

IF YOUR BIRTHDAY IS OCTOBER 27, you could be someone who is enigmatic. You appear to be this mild-mannered individual but deep down, you like danger and excitement. Mostly, you have a mysterious quality that people like! In fact, they cannot get enough of you and sometimes, this can be hard to handle. You can be tempted to take advantage of people because of this capability.

Vigorous but quiet… emotive but reserved are just a few inconsistencies that make this October 27 zodiac birthday one problematical cookie. If today is your birthday, then you are considered to be naughty and restless.

You are able to accomplish a lot when you are active but you need to learn control and self-discipline especially during your success. Use your observational skills to enhance your theories of learning and behavior studies. Your ability to learn quickly is what empowers you to be committed.

The 27 October birthday personality is controlling. As a lover, you would probably give up too much of yourself. When this happens, you can be a jealous person with obsessive qualities. You cannot control everything all the time.

When you love someone, you do not have to take his or her life away. You can be committed and loyal and still have a life outside of your partner. They will come back to you especially if they live in the same residence as you.

But partners should not keep their love in the doghouse for very long. This 27 October Scorpio birthday person may be tempted to step outside of the relationship for needs not being met at home.

What your birthday love compatibility analysis says is that you could have many lovers if that is what you choose. However, you would like to have the loyalty of one particular person. When this person is hurt or betrayed, you can be a force to be reckoned with. When you love, Scorpio, you love with your all. When you hurt, you hurt deeply. Although you dislike confrontations and conflict, you must handle the situations with maturity.

The October 27 birthday horoscope shows that you are an attractive person. You are considerate but some people think that you are cold and heartless. You are socially aware and like to share your experiences with others. You truly are grateful for a chance to enhance someone’s imagination and awareness.

The 27th October birthday astrology predictions show that you like to travel. There is nothing more like it than getting away for the weekend. In addition, you like to plan for extended stays in places that ordinary folks never get a chance to see.

The October 27 birthday meanings show that you generally walk away from arguments and conflict. You cannot stand being lied to. There is nothing worse that someone who is close to you could do. Instead, you like being able to enjoy the company of the people you are around.

As a friend, you are loyal and your friends tend to appreciate you. When you love, you love from within your soul. You are likely to lose yourself because you care so much. Chances are that you will be a jealous kind of lover making the relationship a turbulent affair.

Let’s talk about your career. Usually, this Scorpio birthday people have a tendency to occupy positions of management. You have people who look up to you. In fact, they want you to be their mentor. What a compliment! With your education, you could teach, you know, or coach. It is up to you to decide on what level but you could do this with little effort on your part.

There does not seem to be a middle ground with you, Scorpio. Either you are for it or you are against it. It’s either you work out or you eat until your heart is content. With this in mind, you should watch what you drink as well.

What your birthday says about you is that you have a tendency to overdo it. It is suggested that you avoid too many sweets and alcohol. Try eating smaller meals but eat more times per day. This will keep your energy up and you will be able to work off the calories during the day.

The October 27 birthday personality gives the impression that they are this cool and calm person but actually, they are a smoldering fire. You like taking risks and sometimes, they could be a little dangerous. You are not afraid and this is what your friends and family say they admire about you.

However, when you are in love, you could be guilty of holding on too tight making you just a bit needy and obsessive. You do not know how to do anything outside of going all out or doing nothing at all. Take care of yourself as you have a tendency to overindulge and this includes drinking and eating.
