Meteor Showers take place at the same sort of time every year, but what changes is the light conditions depending on proximity to the Full Moon (dates for this year listed under Angela McGerr's Full Moon Angelic Meditation with Gabriel) or New Moon (dates for this year listed under New Moon Abundance Ritual). See below for chronological order of the annual showers. Two excellent sites for details each year are Earthsky Website - I usually use their excellent radiant point images (with permission from Deborah Byrd) and Time and Date.Both give great instructions for maximising your viewing opportunities. I usually insert a link in the Harmony Blog to the correct page for the current shower, where is the links above are generic.
Watching meteors can be a very therapeutic way to spend an evening. Choose the darkest spot available and check on one of the sites whether you are in location from where they can be seen (assuming minimal light pollution from street lights, large neighbouring towns etc.), the direction to look in (radiant point) and whether the best time for that shower is after midnight or just pre-dawn. When our girls were young, we would take some sun loungers out into the garden with hot drinks and duvets and lie outside for hours making some wonderful memories. The Perseids are the easiest ones to use for this as it's School Holidays and hopefully ambient weather, at least it should be here in the UK. In the Southern hemisphere I guess the Quadrantids, Draconids or Orionids might be a better choice.
Remember, even if you can't see anything during a Meteor Shower, 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. Zikiel therefore 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 (or better still moldavite if you have any), 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, we do still have some of Angela's out of print titles (generally also personally signed by her) and I do have limited 'pre-loved' copies of some titles available via Harmony Healing Shop.
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. We have a number of virtual courses including monthly virtual healing circles (online event for personal and global healing plus Joanna endeavours to get everyone into a unity consciousness experience) and also Reyad Sekh Em (RSE) Egyptian Alchemy Healing Level 1, which is now fully available as interactive training modules, 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.
