Tuesday 3rd/Wednesday 4th January is the peak of the Quadrantids Meteor Shower; visible from 1st – 5th January generally after midnight, but this year peaking at 21.00 hrs GMT/UTC on 3rd January. Typically, 40 or so bright, blue and fast (25.5 miles per second) meteors will radiate from the constellation Bootes, some blazing more than halfway across the sky. A small percentage of them leave persistent dust trains. This shower usually has a very sharp peak, usually lasting only about an hour.
The particles that cause the Quadrantid meteor show originate from the asteroid 2003 EH1 an asteroid that is probably a piece broken off from an obsolete comet. Since the orbit of 2003 EH1 is highly inclined to the orbit of the Earth, the Earth passes through it very quickly. Thus, the Quadrantid meteor shower is an extremely short one, lasting only a few hours. This year we have the New Moon on 29th December which may enhance the viewing. Image is from the EarthSky Website, which is well worth visiting for more details.
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.
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 prgramme 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 (gerenerally also personally signed by her) available via Harmony Healing Shop.
