Wednesday 20th & Thursday 21st October is the peak of the Orionids which is the most prolific meteor shower associated with Halley's Comet and lasts from 15th until 29th October.
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.
This year, co-inciding with the Full Moon, it's unlikely to be good viewing, the annual Orionid meteor shower is expected to rain down the greatest number of meteors between midnight and dawn on October 21st, perhaps as many as 20 meteors per hour.
But the hours between midnight and dawn on the mornings of October 20th and 22nd may offer a decent sprinkling of meteors as well.
If you want to try observing despite the strong moonlight, a dark location is best so try placing yourself in a moon shadow, that is, the shadow of an outhouse, tree or mountain. And then just watch out for the bright ones!

You can invoke the Angel Zikiel (Angel Guardian of Meteors and Asteroids) to help bring in new ideas.
Even if you can't see anything, there will be an impact energetically.
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.
Zikiel guides the comets and meteorites in their eternal passage through space, tracking man's galactic origins. Hence, Zikiel offers you a visionary flash of inspiration from the Sky.
You can use this ritual is taken from Angela McGerr's An Angel For Every Day - now out of print and in very short supply. However, we do still have some of Angela's out of print titles (generally also personally signed by her) available via Harmony Healing Shop, and we actually have a flash sale on this publication with £10 off during October.
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.

Through Harmony Healing, Joanna offers a wider spectrum of events designed to nurture your welbeing. If you are looking for regular spiritually enlightening activities which help to connect you with the lunar cycle, we have our monthly Full Moon Guided Healing Meditations. The next one is on Wednesday 20th October at 7.30-9.30pm (UK time = GMT +1). Participants all receive a deeply healing experience. Cost to participate is £20 by online BACS payment (small admin fee added for PayPal) or half price to RSE graduates. There are multi-buy packages for regular attendees. Book at the Harmony Shop.
During these monthly sessions, we connect with other like-minded people and together we work through a mindful chakra balancing process using colours and etheric crystals, with the aim that all participants will experience a degree of unity consciousness. This activity serves as a good taster of my work in general and the virtual format of our Zoom based programme. And, most importantly, it's a step towards making a difference to the global predicament.
Reyad Sekh Em® is an ultra high vibration healing system combining ancient Egyptian philosophies, alchemy, angelic elemental healing rays, sound vibration, sacred breathing and etheric crystalline energies. The next series starts with Mindful Chakra Balancing & Unity Consciousness on 1st December for three consecutive Wednesday evenings.
