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.
In 2020, the waning gibbous moon (about 1 week after the Ivy Full Moon) doesn't rise until late evening, which fortunately provides moon-free viewing for a few hours after nightfall which is the best viewing time this year. See Earthsky Website or timeandate.com image taken from this site) for more.
The best time to watch is at nightfall and early evening on October 8th and 9th.
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 (left) 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 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.
