Orionid Meteors, Saturday 20th - Monday 22nd October 2018

Saturday 20th - Monday 22nd October is the peak of the Orionids which is the most prolific meteor shower associated with Halley's Comet  - which was its 'parent' comet and the meteorites pass through the debris left behind by it. The full duration of the shower extends from 15th until 29th October. Image of Halley's Comet on 8th March 1986 (right) is by Nasa and is in the public domain via Wikimedia Commons.

The Orionids are so-called because they appear to come from, the constellation Orion. In some years, meteors may occur at rates of 50-70 per hour. 

Orionid radiant pointThis year, placed very near the Full Moon, it could be a disappointing year. In 2018, the annual Orionid meteor shower is expected to rain down the greatest number of meteors before dawn on October 21st, perhaps as many as 20 meteors per hour. But the hours between midnight and dawn on the mornings of October 21st and 22nd may offer a decent sprinkling of meteors as well.

Image of the Orionids salient point (left) is from the EarthSky website where you will also find more details about the event.

You can invoke the Angel Zikiel (Angel Guardian of Meteors and Asteroids) to help bring in new ideas.

The image of Zikiel (right) is by Richard Rockwood from Angela McGerr's Heart & Soul Angel Cards.

Zadkiel offers you a visionary flash of inspiration from the Sky.

Zikiel guides the comets and meteorites in their eternal passage through space, tracking man's galactic origins.

You can invoke Zikiel by calling his name three times (pronunciation = Zick ee el) and adding "I call upon you to be with me now, 'in love & light, in love & light' in love and light' ". 

If you have a clear quartz, you can programme it with Zikiel's name and keep it with you to help capture any inspiration thoughts channelled from the heavens tonight and also to help your heart to make the right choices.  

This ritual is taken from Angela McGerr's An Angel For Every Day - now out of print and in very short supply.  However, But we do still have some of Angela's out of print titles (generally also personally signed by her) available via Harmony Healing Shop.

Draconids Meteor Shower, 7th/8th October 2018

draconid meteor radiant 300x213Sunday 7th & Monday 8th October, is the Draconids Meteor Shower.

The radiant point for the Draconid meteor shower almost coincides with the head of the constellation Draco the Dragon in the northern sky.

That’s why the Draconids are best viewed from the Northern Hemisphere, and, surprisingly in the early evening soon after dusk. 

Draco has been known to spew forth many hundreds of meteors in a single hour. 

See this Earthsky Website (sky map image taken from this site) or timeandate.com  for more. 

Zikiel croppedIn 2018, the close proximity to the New Moon (early on the 9th) will aid viewing, weather permitting.

The best time to watch is at nightfall and early evening on October 7th and 8th.  

Even if you can't see anything, there will be an impact energetically.

Going Forth of Aset (Isis), Sunday 7th October 2018

isis with sampleSunday 7th October, though some sources say Monday 10th October, is Going Forth of Isis (Aset) in Egyptian Tradition.  Apparently, her heart is pleased on this day because 'the heritage is granted to her son Horus (Heru)'.

On this special day, a specially selected team of Priests and/or Priestesses would commence a procession to take their most treasured image or statue of Aset (Isis) to another temple, with many planned stops en route. At each stop a sacred rite would be performed by the Priests/Priestesses and often divinations would be offered.  When the final temple destination was reached, the image or staue would be placed in an honoured location and a joyful fesival celebration would ensue.

Informative posters of Isis, as per the sample shown here, are by Jacqui Taliesin El Masri from Alkhemi.co.uk. Laminated versions of this and other Egyptian Posters by Jacqui, are available to purchase from the Harmony Shop.

Feast of Francis of Assisi, Thursday 4th October

Bartolomeo painting of St Francis of asisi

Thursday 4th October is the Feast of Francis of Assisi in the Christian Calendar, so it is appropriate that it is also World Animal Day since St Francis is the Patron Saint of Animals and the Environment. It is a popular date for animals to be blessed.

St Francis, who founded the Catholic Church’s Franciscan order, lived in Italy between approximately 1181 and 1226. He is remembered for his love for animals and nature and his generosity to the poor, as well as well as his willingness to minister to the lepers.

St Francis was cannonised (pronounced a Saint), shortly after his death (in 1228) by Pope Gregory IX. The Pope also laid the foundation stone for the Basilica of St Francis d'Assisi, Italy, which is a UNESCO world heritage site. See timeanddate.com and Wikipedia (where the image to the left was found) for more.

Equinox Full Vine Moon, Tuesday 25th September 2018

Tuesday 25th September @ 03.54 is Pagan Equinox Full Vine Moon (Monday night/Tuesday Morning). 

If you are an angel fan, the angel of the Moon is Gabriel.

To the left is a beautiful image of Gabriel by Richard Rockwood from my sister Angel McGerr's A Harmony of Angels book (and Harmony Angel Cards).

Both are out of print and collectible but we still have a few remaining copies via the Harmony Shop. 

See link for instructions on Angela's Angelic Meditation with Gabriel.

At the time of the Full Moon the Sun and Moon are in opposition. The solar (sun) energy influences our masculine/yang archetypal attributes (our outer world) such as strength, courage, identity, self-esteem, expression, conscious beliefs and determination together with our logical outlook.  Whereas the lunar energy (moon) influences our femininely archetypal attributes (our inner world), such as our unconscious beliefs, hidden emotions, nurturing feelings, creativity and intuition. The Full Moon is a powerful and appropriate time to show gratitude for life and the riches and bounty bestowed upon us by Mother Earth (Gaia).

The Celts had names for each Full Moon of the year, and associated each with a tree; this is the Vine Moon (thoughtco.com). All over the northern hemisphere, at this time of year, the fruits of vine are ripe for harvesting and ready for the first stages of wine production. The vine is a symbol of passionate emotions whether expressing either joy or wrath. The Celts called the month Muin (Neopagans call it Mabon) and typical celebrations would include magical workings connecting with gardens involving both ends of the emotional spectrum (such as exhilaration and rage) acknowledging also the darker aspects of the Mother Goddess. Vine leaves can be used to enhance goals and ambitions. This year, being very close to the Equinox, the Vine Moon will carry the frequency of balance and harmony embodied by the Equinox when light and dark are in perfect balance.  

Other names for a Full Moon in September are: Fruit Moon, Harvest Moon (Northern Hemisphere) or Worm Moon, Sugar Moon, Chaste Moon, (Southern Hemisphere). Names for the moon can also relate to the season, so this Equinox Moon could also be called the Harvest Moon, or Hunter’s Moon, Frosty Moon, Beaver Moon (after the autumnal equinox) or Grass Moon, Egg Moon, Planting Moon, or Milk Moon, Rose Moon, Flower Moon, or Strawberry Moon (after the spring equinox). Source = earthsky.org. 

The time between any Full Moon and the next New Moon is a good time, energetically, to detox the body.  In view of this being an Equinox Full Moon (where the focus is on balance), I would say it's an even better time than usual for a detox.  I recommend an oil pulling technique, with coconut oil, which must be from a glass container for best taste.

See my Facebook Live on Saturday 31st March is the Equinox Easter Alder Blue Full Moon (featuring the energies of the March 2018 Equinox Full Moon event plus instructions on Oil Pulling and Angela McGerr's Angelic Meditation with Gabriel). Plus, if you're interested, 'Has Easter been superimposed onto an earlier Pagan celebration Eostre?'
