Wednesday 21st (late) until dawn Thursday 22nd April is the peak of the Lyrids Meteor Shower. The Lyrids are an average shower, usually producing about 20 meteors per hour at their peak.
These meteors can produce bright dust trails that last for several seconds. This year the shower peaks on 21st & 22nd April, although some meteors can be visible from April 16th - 25th. Look for meteors radiating from the constellation of Lyra after midnight. The proximity of the Waxing First Quarter Moon on the 21st April this year means light pollution shouldn't be too bad. See rmg.org for more.
Observations of the Lyrids Meteor Showers go back over 2700 years! The Ancient Chinese are said to have recorded the Lyrid meteors “falling like rain” in the year 687 BC.
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.
Zikiel guides the comets and meteorites in their eternal passage through space, tracking man's galactic origins; offering 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.
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 (generally also personally signed by her) available via Harmony Healing Shop.
Aligning ourselves with activity in the night sky including meteor tracking and connecting with the moon cycle is very therapeutic, bringing harmony and wellbeing into our lives.
Thursday 22nd April is also Earth Day, which is heralded as a pivotal opportunity for people, corporations and governments to join together to create a global green economy.
This is the 51st Anniversary of Earth Day and it is hoped that co-ordinated efforts now will be recognized by future generations as a turning point.
The theme for 2021 is Restore our Earth.
See more at earthday.org,which notes that as the world endeavours to return to 'normal' we can't go back to 'business-as-usual'!
You are invited to join world leaders for Earth Day 2021.
As a global community, we need to prevent the coming disasters of environmental destruction and irreversible climate change.

Harmony Healing activities are aimed at bringing harmony and wellbeing into your life.
If you are looking for spiritually enlightening activities following lockdown, which help to connect you with the lunar cycle, we have the next virtual healing circle later this month on Monday 26th April, at 7.30-9.30pm (UK time = GMT+1), and costs £20 (+ £2 Paypal fee). During this 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.
The next RSE 1 module series starts 14th May with Violet Flame of Amenti and 17th May with Chakra Balancing, Axiatonal Alignment and Unity Consciousness.
If you would like to experience one of our spiritual offerings (meditation, reading, 1:1 healing, a Forest Bathing+ session or a full mentoring course), why not ask for a Harmony Healing gift voucherfor a birthday or other celebratory occasion?
A number of virtual courses are now ready, 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.
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.
