Tuesday 11th – Thursday 13th August. Peak dates for the Perseids Meteor Shower (visible 9th - 17th August, see entry under 9th August). The radiant point for this shower will be in the constellation Perseus.
Look to the northeast after midnight; with the recent Full Moon on Monday 3rd August, viewing could be limited and will improve towards the 13th as we approach the New Moon on the 19th August.
See diagram in the entry under 9th August below and also see earthsky.org website for more.
To the left is an image of Zikiel, by Richard Rockwood, from Angela McGerr's Heart & Soul Angel Cards. These are now out of print, but we still have the last few signed copies available from the Harmony Shop.
Zikiel is the Guardian Angel of Comets and Meteors. In the Heart & Soul Angel Card set, this is the card of Inspiration, Inner Wisdom and Oneness With All.
Zikiel reminds us that our path can be traced through the stars, entwined with the galaxies and in the ethereal realms. By meditating and working with Zadkiel, we can journey back to the beginning of time and truly sense the original Oneness with All. We can also invoke Zikiel to help us to tap into pure inspiration from out of the blue.
My daughters are now 25 and 24 (later this month) and one of their earliest precious memories is of lying outside on a mattress, covered with duvets, on a balmy summer's night in the south of France, looking out for meteros until the early hours. It was my sister Fiona's idea and it was truly magical evening; we were rewarded with many gleaming tails across the dark sky from the Perseid Meteor Shower.
In subsequent years, come August, the girls would often ask me if we could lie ouside on our sun bathing loungers, covered with blankets/duvets, often with a hot drink in hand, and cuddle up watching these wonderful meteors. Of course successful viewing is very dependent on the weather, cloud conditions and the proximity of the last or next Full Moon, but we are lucky in that our garden - whilst not free of Greater London light pollution - has afforded us many a memorable and spectacular occasion. If you are able to go to a designated dark sky (Dartmooor, UK is one of the best in the world), it's well worth taking some warming provisions and rugs etc., so you can be comfortable for a couple of hours or so.
Skywatching with other interested parties develops a sense of harmony and connection, thereby bringing balance and wellbeing into their lives.
Harmony Healing utilises the philosophies of the Ancient Egyptians to bring balance and harmony. The next virtual healing circle is 7.30-9.30pm (UK time), 2nd September. Twocourse modules are starting again early September, both are interactive training modules worth ½ unit each towards Reyad Sekh Em (RSE) Egyptian Alchemy Healing Level 1 details on Harmony Healing Virtual Events. Currently, due to Coronavirus, most events will be virtual hence distant readings and healings are proving popular. We don't recommend giving a reading or healing to another person, without first checking whether it would be welcomed.
If you are looking for spiritually enlightening activities during lockdown, Joanna offers distant intuitive readings (past life and/or aura readings) and distant 1-2-1 healings. We also have meditations available.
