On Monday three of those quakes center near Snyder south of the Panhandle.
The largest being 4.0.

One centered south of Ft. Worth at 3.2. I didn't feel it.

These occurred off of the Balcones Fault that runs southwest to northeast.
Most geologists say that Texas can not create a quake beyond 4.0 but it is debated.

More quakes. This time 3 in Western Texas.

Somebody tell me what the hell is going on? That's 7 quakes.

Low solar activity causes earthquakes to increase. Same as in 2008-2011. This round should be worse if that theory holds.

These are small in magnitude compared to earthquakes in California.

Yes indeed. However, mid continent quakes are unusual.
If these are not fracking related, then it's odd to see them grouped like this.

Time will tell. We're at the low of Solar Cycle 24 and the first little spot of a young Cycle 25 has popped up.
25 will still be a low spot cycle like 24, so the GSM cycle has probably begun.
