Deciduous: A 17th century latin term that means “shedding its leaves annually.”

Trivia:

October 27, 2019 was the date of the New Moon, the first lunar phrase to bring a new 28 day cycle. The New Moon crossed the sky at the same time as the sun did on the same side of Earth. To an unaided eye, it is non-visible. The New Moon correlates with Scorpio’s season from October 24 to November 22, meaning it is a time for unexpected rebirth in new directions and embracement of bigger perspectives.
