BootidMeteors

  • Annual Meteor Showers

    Zikiel croppedMeteor 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 1which 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.

    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 and virtual healing circles. We also have meditations available.

  • Celestial Forecast June 2021

    Significant dates from ancient folklore, lunar and meteorological activites this month in green
    Selected Events (Harmony Healing and other events as notified) in black
    Timings given are UK time (GMT+1), click here to convert to your time zone

    June is British summertime. The roses bloom, imprinting their perfumed scent into the extended evenings leading to the Solstice on the 21st. Garden flowers and hedgerows are splendidly colourful and summer berries are abundant.  This year, after extended lockdown, we will relish the picnic season with strawberries & ice-cream plus elderflower cordial; despite optimism versus realism whilst planning for both rain and/or sunburn risk.

    The month could be named after Juno, the Roman Goddess Goddess linked with marriage. To the Anglo-Saxons, it was called sera monath (dry month), which is not necessarily our modern-day experience.

    During June, as well as our own traditional British Festivals, we have a couple of international events – World Environment Day (3rd) and Asteroid Day (30th).  We can look forward to a sprinkling of Chinese, Egyptian and Roman celebrations plus the Bootid Meteor Shower as well as a solar eclipse on 10th June. Unlike the lunar eclipse at the end of May, this solar eclipse will be visible in most of UK and Europe, and like the May lunar eclipse it will have an energetic impact globally. We have Surrey Forest Bathing events on 19th & 22nd with the Full Moon Guided Healing meditation taking place on the 23rd, the night before the Solstice Strawberry Moon (coinciding with Mid Summers Day) reaches its peak.

    5th June alternative World Environment DaySaturday 5th June is World Environment day, which has been celebrated annually since 1972.

    Over the years, the day has focused on such issues as acid rain, oceans, water, and green cities.

    Happy World Ocean Day Instagram SquareTuesday 8th June is World Ocean Day.

    This annual event, recognised since 2016, is designed to unite and rally the world to protect and restore our blue planet.

    World Ocean Day, powered by World Ocean Day Youth Advisory Council, works with an international network of youth and organisational leaders, in more than 140 countries, to support collaborative conservation.

    10th June New MoonThursday 10th June @ 11:53 (Solstice Dark Moon & Annular Solar Eclipse), visible in most of Europe, North America & Asia, plus in North/West Africa, Atlantic & Arctic areas. See timeanddate.com.

    The New Moon Abundance Ritual should be carried out within 24 hours after the New Moon. It needs to be after the New Moon because the moon should be waxing (getting bigger again) to carry the manifestation energy. There are video instructions on my Facebook Page or You Tube Page.

    New Moon is a good time to work on your Vision Board for the rest of 2021.

    14th June Chinese Dragon Boat FestivalMonday 14th June is scheduled as the Chinese Dragon Boat Festival, also known as Duanwu Festival in Mandarin and Tuen Ng Festival in Cantonese. The Festival is to commemorate the Chinese patriot, Qu Yuan, who killed himself by jumping into the river Li in despair. He was desperate because his master refused to take his advice and he feared his country falling into the enemy's hands  It is on the fifth day of the fifth month of the Chinese calendar, which falls this year on Monday 14th June.  However, celebrations often take place on convenient weekends in the Western calendar - such as the London Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festivalwhich was scheduled to take place this year in late June.  I'm not sure either willl be happening.

    16th June Leyleten NuktahWednesday 16th June is the Egyptian night, known as Leyleten-Nuktah, the Night of the Tear Drop.

    A miraculous tear-drop as Aset (Isis) began the mourning of her brother/husband Asar (Osirus), was believed to fall into the Nile causing it to rise and bring new life to the land. 

    Sources vary as to whether this is 14th/16th/17th or 18th June; the date is actually the 11th day of the Ancient Egyptian month of Ba-oo-neh, so the confusion arises when trying to covert this to our Gregorian calendar.

    To purchase instructions for a sacred bath ritual for finding inner strength; removing the etheric mask to see the ‘truth’ beneath(£4.44 or £2.22 to email subscribers) see Harmony Shop or email .Subscriber discount code will be sent to Blog update subscribers on 16th June.

    Forest Bathing 17th 22nd AprilSaturday 19th June, 11am - 2pm, Forest Bathing+ in the grounds of Harry Edward's Healing Sanctuary, £35 (+ Eventbrite fee = £38.32).

    Immerse yourself in the healing elements of nature and connect deeply with all your senses.

    Spend 3 hours in the woods mindfully connecting to your surroundings and living fully in the present moment, guided by me in simple sensory exercises and a treelaxtion. A deeply relaxing and rejuvenating experience, and which, despite the title forest bathing,does not involve any swimming!

    Some of the scientifically proven benefits of spending time in woodland include reduced stress levels, stronger immune system response, and a stabilised cortisol cycle.

    We have small groups of maximum 12* including guide(s) to allow us to adopt COVID precautions and social distancing. Book at Eventbrite.If the event is full, email me on  to go on a waitlist. *We were previously exempt from the social group maximum 6 rule due to our categorisation under sport and exercise.

    This is a 3-hour Forest Bathing+ session which will take place in all weathers except 30+mph winds.

    20th June Egyptian Festival of the Burning of the LampsSunday 20th June is the Egyptian Festival of the Burning of the Lamps which was held at Sais (source Bibliotheca Alexandrina, p31, also available via Academia.edu,date from Moonwise Calendar). This is the third great festival in Sais to Aset (Isis).

    In an under-chapel beneath the temple, lamps were carried in procession around the coffin of Asar (Osiris). It was by the power of light, symbolising the life-giving power of the Moon, that Aset rekindled life in her dead husband.

    The exact date is actually the 13th day of the Ancient Egyptian month of Epeiph, so confusion arises when trying to covert this to our Gregorian calendar and some sources give variations especially 21st June.

    21st June Summer SolsticeMonday 21st June at 04.32 is the Pagan Celebration of the Solstice, the moment when the sun enters Cancer.  In the Northern Hemisphere, this is viewed as the triumph of light, the ecstatic culmination of the sun, yet the start of growing darkness.

    Old traditions included: Making a bonfire on a hilltop, sing, drink, laugh and time of merry-making.  Processions with torches and lanterns, rolling wheel down hill to mark the start of the sun’s descent, blessing cakes and wine, waiting for the dawn and greeting the sun when it rises, sleeping by a spring, rolling naked in the dew of the summer sunrise! More at timeanddate.com

    Tuesday 22nd June, 10.30am – 1.30pm Forest Bathing+ at Newlands Corner, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) in the Surrey Hills, £35 (+ Eventbrite fee = £38.32).  

    Join me for a reviving yet relaxing Forest Bathing+ session in our local ancient woodlands? I will lead you slowly and purposefully through a series of mindfulness-based sensory exercises and a treelaxation.

    3rd June FB at WinkworthDeeply relaxing and surprisingly profound, you will be delighted by your reconnection with, and enhanced appreciation for, nature.  Despite the name, there's no swimming involved, this relates to bathing in the ambience of the tree canopy.

    We have small groups of maximum 12*, including your guide(s) to allow us to adopt COVID precautions and social distancing. *We were previously exempt from the social group maximum 6 rule due to our categorisation under sport and exercise.

    This is a 3-hour Forest Bathing+ session which will take place in all weathers except 30+mph winds. Book at EventbriteIf the event is full, email me on  to go on a waitlist. 

    23rd June Full Moon MeditationWednesday 23rd June, Virtual Harmony Healing Full Moon Guided Meditation (£20 + Paypal admin fee - half price to RSE graduates), 7.30pm - 9.30pm (UK time).

    2-hour Full Moon Guided Personal & Global Healing & Unity Consciousness Meditation, 23rd June @ £22
    To book via Paypal

    24th June Full MoonThursday 24th June is Full Moon @ 19.40 UK time.

    It's the Summer Solstice Oak Strawberry Supermoon as well as Midsummers Day, also known as the Lotus Moon, Oak Moon, Cold Moon or Long Night’s Moon.

    Between Full Moon and the next New Moon is considered as a good time energetically for detoxing the body.

    For details of Full Moon timings for 2021, as well as instructions for an Angela McGerr's Full Moon Meditation with Gabriel (from Angela McGerr's book A Harmony of Angel, we have a few unused signed editions available from the Harmony Shop),see the Harmony Healing Full Moon listing.

    24th June Mid Summers DayThursday 24th June is also Midsummers Eve and was considered magical in Cornwall and Ireland, when there was feasting, fires, songs, and dances. Bonfires were kindled on high hills to commemorate the high point of the year. Traditionally, the veil is thin between the dimensions housing the living and the dead at this time. 

    This is also the Roman Festival of Fors Fortuna.  Forsis an ancient Roman Goddess of prosperity, good luck, and divine blessings. Her name means "She Who Brings", from the Latin verb fero, synonymous with abundance and success.  This seems to have merged with Fortuna, probably originally a Goddess of fertility, into the Goddess called Fors Fortuna, who was acknowledged as sometimes being fickle or wanton and representing Fortune as Goddess of luck or chance.  She was especially worshipped by slaves and commoners, as the Goddess who could bring about rags-to-riches transformations; with at least two dedicated temples in Rome being founded by former slaves in gratitude for their changed luck.

    26th June Bootids Meteor ShowerSaturday 26th June (Friday night/Saturday morning) is predicted as the peak of the Bootids Meteor Shower; if they are visible at all this year.  Although they are not active every year, they can occur any time between 22nd June and 2nd July.

    In 2021, with the Full Moon occurring on 24th June, the peak dates will span a period of considerable moonlight pollution.

    From more northerly latitudes (including UK), the all-night twilight poses an additional problem for observers.

    More at in-the-sky.org, including a map of the radiant point.

    30th June Asteroid DayWednesday 30th June is Asteroid Day. Asteroid Day was co-founded in 2014, by Dr. Brian May, astrophysicist and lead guitarist of QUEEN, together with Rusty Schweickart, Apollo 9 Astronaut, Danica Remy, President of B612 Foundation and filmmaker Grig Richters.

    Asteroid Day events take place annually on 30th June to mark the anniversary of the Tunguska impact in 1908. 

    Its purpose is to expand the understanding of asteroids and to ensure that any asteroids which might ever have a direct impact on our planet are carefully monitored.

  • Monday 20th July, New Moon @ 18.33

    Monday 20th July @ 18.33 UK time (GMT/UT+1) is the New Moon. See below for the New Moon abundance ritual.

    The New Moon Abundance Ritual should be carried out within 24 hours after the New Moon. It needs to be after the New Moon because the moon should be waxing (getting bigger again) to carry the manifestation energy.

    There are video instructions on my Facebook Page or You Tube Page.

    New Moon is a good time to work on your Vision Board (downloadable instructions on this page) for the rest of 2020. Hopefully a move towards a world where we can move freely again and are enjoying a global economic recovery.

    Aligning ourselves with the moon cycle is very therapeutic, hence being aware of the New moon (good for starting new projects) and Full Moon (a good time for bringing projects to a conclusion) is excellent for bringing harmony and wellbeing into our lives.

    Harmony Healing utilises the philosophies of the Ancient Egyptians to bring balance and harmony. A number of virtual courses are now ready and a selection are starting again this month, including 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.

  • Monday 21st June, Summer Solstice in the northern hemisphere

    21st June Summer Solstice21st June solstice 1Monday 21st June at 04.32  is the Pagan Celebration of the Solstice, the moment when the sun enters the constellation of Cancer. In the Northern Hemisphere, it's the Summer Solstice viewed as the triumph of light, the ecstatic culmination of the sun, yet the start of growing darkness.

    Old traditions included: Making a bonfire on a hilltop, sing, drink, laugh and time of merry-making. Processions with torches and lanterns, rolling wheel down hill to mark the start of the sun’s descent, blessing cakes and wine, waiting for the dawn and greeting the sun when it rises, sleeping by a spring, rolling naked in the dew of the summer sunrise! 

    Although there have been thousands at Stonehenge to welcome in this turning point in the year, I expect it will be ghostly silent there again in 2021. The year I went, when there were about 19,000 others, you could just drive there and enter free other than parking charges (around £15 for a car, £5 for a motorobike). It is an unforgetable experience.

    In 2017-19 many have gathered at the Clandon Wood Nature Reserve (upper right) near Guildford Surrey, to watch the sunrise.

    21st June solstice 321st June solstice 2With my friends Olga and Gary hosting a solstice celebration between 04.00 & 07.00. Here are some pictures from 2017 & 2018 when we enjoyed an amazing sunrise with a mystical cloud formation over the horizon.

    After sunrise (officially 04.46 although it was getting light at around 4am), we enjoyed a guided meditation followed by a gong bath courtesy of Gary Evans and Olga Terebenina, Holistic Healing Therapy

    You might be wondering, did we all roll around naked in the dew afterwards?  If so, there are no photos...

    A similar event was planned at Clandon Wood for this year - when the UK lockdown restrictions were due to be lifted on the day but have been delayed a month - so are now cancelled.

    This year, I am attending a whole day to celebrate the Summer Solstice at Harrry Edwards Healing Sanctuary in Shere, where I regularly offer Forest Bathing+ sessions in the grounds. There will be a smaller gong bath gathering, starting at 10,30, followed by a walk in their labyrinth and other festivities. I only heard at the last minute and was lucky to get a space just before they closed bookings.

    By keeping aligned with the movements of our planet, communities retained a sense of harmony and connection, thereby bringing balance and wellbeing into their lives.

    Harmony Healing activities are aimed at bringing harmony and wellbeing into your life. Through Harmony Healing, Joanna offers a wider spectrum of events designed to nurture your welbeing. If you are looking for regular spiritually enlightening activities, we have our monthly Full Moon Guided Healing Meditations. The next one is on Wednesday 23rd Juneat 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. 

    During these monthly session, 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.

    If you are interested in Ancient Egypt, Joanna Bristow-Watkins (Harmony Healing) is a Reyad Sekh Em® Egyptian Alchemy Healer and Teaching Mentor.

  • Sunday 21st June, New Moon @ 07.42 & solar eclipse in Cancer

    Sunday 21st June @ 07.42 UK time (GMT/UT+1) is the Solstice New Moon. See below for the New Moon abundance ritual.

    It's also a solar eclipse, which is not visible in the UK. Astrologer Lisa Mendes says: 

    "The Solstice Solar Eclipse in Cancer that occurs on 21 June 2020 will begin a brand-new six-month cycle for the collective.

    Light-oriented and hope-filled, it will coincide with opening of the Sirius gateway, marked by the solstice and the heliacal rising of the two great ‘Suns’ or lights of our galaxy, an astrological alignment made famous by the ancient Egyptians through their New Year festival, which was focused on abundance, fertility, life-force energy and the healing power of the mother goddess in the form of Isis (note from Joanna: Isis = Aset in Khemitology).

    Mercury, currently retrograde in nostalgic and sentimental Cancer, will be the first to join with Sirius, the brightest star in our galaxy to usher in a time of great ‘rememberings’ of past life gifts and wisdom; as well as a release from difficult ancestral karma. Taking place at the eclipse, this meeting of the archetypes of human and cosmic minds, promises to activate a surge in downloads and light-codes, leading to spiritual awakenings and aha moments for many on the planet, particularly around relationships, parenting, and self-love, as well as how we live and nourish ourselves."  See more at Lisa's Astrologysphere.com website as well as Lisa's geomancy video scope for the eclipse per Zodiac sign 

    The New Moon Abundance Ritual should be carried out within 24 hours after the New Moon. It needs to be after the New Moon because the moon should be waxing (getting bigger again) to carry the manifestation energy.

    There are video instructions on my Facebook Page or You Tube Page.

    New Moon is a good time to work on your Vision Board (downloadable instructions on this page) for the rest of 2020. Hopefully a move towards a world where we can move freely again and are enjoying a global economic recovery.

    Aligning ourselves with the moon cycle is very therapeutic, hence being aware of the New moon (good for starting new projects) and Full Moon (a good time for bringing projects to a conclusion) is excellent for bringing harmony and wellbeing into our lives.

    Saturday 20th June – Thursday 2nd July is the Bootids Meteor Shower, predicted to be less active this year, peaking on Friday 26th June (see Blog entry under 26th June). For advance notification (before the 26th June Blog is published) see June Celestial Forecast.

    skymap BootidsSunday 23rd June is predicted as the peak of the Bootids Meteor Shower (if they are visible at all this year), best observed in Northern Hemisphere. Look to constellation Bootes where Arcturus is located.

    This is known for very slow meteors, and is an unpredictable source, the June Boötids produced an unexpected outburst in 1998. 

    The image to the right is taken from a very informative webpage at spaceweather.com, which is worth looking at, even though it doesn't seem to have been updated since 2003.

    Although they are not active every year, they can occur any time between Friday 21st June and Tuesday 2nd July. In 2019, with the Full Moon occurring on June 17th and Last Quarter on June 25th, the peak dates will span the time with heavy moonlight. From more northerly latitudes (including UK), however, the all-night twilight poses a greater problem for observers. More at theastronomer.org, including a map of the radiant point.

    The Bootids can be visible right up until the 2nd July, so keep a look out over the next few days.

    But whether we can physically see anything or not, the meteor shower will still affect us energetcially.

    Zikiel croppedYou can invoke the Angel Zikiel (Angel Guardian of Meteors and Asteroids) tonight for inspirational new ideas seemingly out of nowhere; offering you a visionary flash of inspiration from the Sky..

    Zikiel (image left is by Richard Rockwood from Angela McGerr's Heart & Soul Angel Cards) 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 programme it with Zikiel's name and keep it with you to help capture any inspirational 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) available via Harmony Healing Shop.

  • Sunday 27th June, Boötids Meteor Shower peaks today

    26th June Bootids Meteor ShowerSunday 27th Juneis predicted as the peak of the Boötids Meteor Shower (if they are visible at all this year), best observed in Northern Hemisphere. Look to constellation Boötes where Arcturus is located.

    This is known for very slow meteors, and is an unpredictable source, the June Boötids produced an unexpected outburst in 1998.

    Although they are not active every year, they can occur any time between 22nd June and Tuesday 2nd July.

    In 2021, the peak is anticipated at 11.00 on 27th this year, so the best viewing will be before dawn or after dusk on Sunday 27th June. However, with the Full Moon occurring on Thursday 24th June, the peak dates will span high moonlight pollution. From more northerly latitudes (including UK), however, the all-night twilight poses a greater problem for observers. More at in-the-sky.org, including a map of the radiant point.

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. 

    During these monthly session, 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.

And, most importantly, it's a step towards making a difference to the global predicament.
