    Friday 9th August – Saturday 17th August may be able to see some Perseid meteors. The Perseids is one of the best meteor showers to observe, producing up to 60 meteors per hour at their peak. The shower's peak usually occurs on August 13th (predawn), this year it's worth chceking in the early hours of the 11th and 12th August when there may be less light pollution from the approaching Full Moon (15th).  However, you may be able to see some meteors any time between 17th July and 24th August. The radiant point for this shower will be in the constellation Perseus. Look to the northeast after midnight. See diagram to the right and  earthsky.org website for more, from where the image has been taken.

    Sunday 11th – Tuesday 13th August are the peak dates for the Perseids Meteor Shower (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 quarter moon - weather permitting - viewing could be reasonable. See  earthsky.org  website for more.

    Zikiel croppedTo 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.

    The following ritual is taken from Angela McGerr's An Angel For Every Day - now out of print and in short supply (a few signed copies available from  the Harmony Shop). 

    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. 

    My daughters are now 24 and 23 (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 meteors 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.

  • eta aquarid showerSaturday 5th May and Sunday 6th May is the the ETA Aquarid Meteor ShowerPredominantly, this is a pre-dawn shower, that is one where the meteors may occur in the dark hour before dawn. Image of the radiant point is taken from the EarthSky Website.

    It's about a week after the Full Moon, so it's the waning Quarter Moon so viewing could be OK.

    The best display will rain down on the mornings of the 5th and 6th May - just before dawn - but it's worth looking out for them on the morning of the 7th as well.

    Even if you can't see anything, there will be an impact energetically.

    Zikiel croppedYou 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.

    Zadkiel offers you a visionary flash of inspiration from the Sky.

    Zikiel 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 (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.

    The new Moon close to midnight on Saturday 4th May guarantees a darker sky. The best display will rain down on the mornings of the 5th (especially favourable because of the New Moon) and 6th May - just before dawn - but it's worth looking out for them on the morning of the 7th as well.

    Sunday 5th May, in 2019, is also the start of Ramadan, which begins at midnight. Ramadan is the Islamic remembrance of the reception of the divine revelation by Muhammad as recorded in the Qur'an. Complete fasting is observed from sunrise to sunset for 30 days, until Tuesday 4th June.

  • Significant dates from ancient folklore; timings given are UK time (GMT)

    Timings given are UK time (GMT); to convert GMT (Universal Time) to your local time

    Wednesday 1st January is New Year’s Day and is a Bank Holiday in the UK and time for New Year’s Resolutions.

    Wednesday 1st – Sunday 5th January (peaking on the 3rd, 4th January) is the Quadrantids Meteor Shower; visible from 1st – 5th January after midnight and peaking in the early hours of the 4th.  Typically, 40 or so bright, blue and fast (25.5 miles per second) meteors will radiate from the constellation Bootes, some blazing more than halfway across the sky. A small percentage of them leave persistent dust trains. This shower usually has a very sharp peak, usually lasting only about an hour. 

    The particles that cause the Quadrantid meteor show originate from the asteroid 2003 EH1 an asteroid that is probably a piece broken off from an obsolete comet. Since the orbit of 2003 EH1 is highly inclined to the orbit of the Earth, the Earth passes through it very quickly. Thus, the Quadrantid meteor shower is an extremely short one, lasting only a few hours.  With the recent New Moon on Thursday 26th December, there should't be too much light pollution.  See earthsky.org for more details.

    Monday 6th January is also 12th night - or Epiphany - in the Christian Calendar. The day when traditionally the Christmas Tree and other decorations should be removed until the following year.

    Friday 10th January @ 19.23 is the Full Moon. This is also a penumbral lunar eclipse, peaking at 19.10 (UK time = GMT/UT). This eclipse will technically be visible in London although penumbral eclipses are not always easy to identify. More about this eclipse at timeanddate.com.                                                        

    Between Full Moon and the next New Moon is considered as a good time energetically for detoxing the body. Click here for Angela McGerr's Full Moon Meditation with Gabriel.

    Monday 13th January is Plough Monday in England!  Traditionally Plough Monday (the Monday after Epiphany when The Zoroastrian Magi visited the infant Jesus) is the day for setting aside the remnants and excesses of Christmas and "putting one's hand to the plough"; in other words, starting work on a project of some sort.  

    Tuesday 14th Januaryis the Hindu Celebration of Makara Samkranti, which is the Winter Festival of the reborn sun.  It is traditional to wear yellow clothes and eat yellow food. Bathing in sacred waters, lighting bonfires, kite flying, dancing and offering prayers are also traditional activities over this festival, with rural children going from house to house, singing and asking for treats.

    Most ancient Hindu festivals are observed according to lunar cycles, whereas Makar Sankranti is one of the few set by the solar cycle. This means it falls annually on the same Gregorian calendar date (14th January), except on occasional years when the date shifts by a single day, because of the complexity of earth-sun relative movement.

    Monday 20th JanuaryisSt Agnes Eve;a night for meaningful and deep dreams.  In Christian tradition, St Agnes appeared to her parents in a dream the night after she was martyred. 

    Moon Scarletts shotFriday 24th January is New Moon @ 21.44

    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 You Tube Page.

    It is a fabulous day for creating a personal or corporate Vision Board for 2020.  

    Saturday 25th January is Burns Night in Scotland.  Burns Night is a revered date in the Scottish calendar and celebrates, on the anniversary of his birthday, the life and works of their national Bard, Robert Burns.  Born around 250 years ago; some consider his best known poem as ‘Auld Lang Syne’, though others believe he did not write it himself, but was the first person credited with writing it down for posterity as part of his attempt to preserve Scottish traditional songs. The evening centres on the entrance of the haggis (a type of sausage made from a sheep's stomach) on a large platter to the sound of ceremonial bagpipes. When the haggis is on the table, the host reads the "Address to a Haggis". This is an ode that Robert Burns wrote to the Scottish delicacy! At the end of the reading, the haggis is ceremonially sliced into two pieces and the meal begins.  The same date is St Dwynwen’s Dayin Wales.  St Dwynwenis the Welsh equivalent of St Valentine, being their patron saint of love.

  • earth lighting equinox en

    Tuesday 20th March is the Pagan Vernal Equinox at 16.15.  

    The Equinox is a time when light and dark are equal over the whole world. It's good to mark the moment with silence and stillness. See my live Facebook Pelusia/Facebook video.

    Representing balance of opposites, symbolically it's a great time to bring harmony and balance into your life.

    In the UK and the rest of the Northern Hemisphere, this is the Spring Equinox, in the Southern Hemisphere it's the Autumn Equinox. Image left by Przemyslaw "Blueshade" Idzkiewicz shows the illumination of Earth by Sun on the day of equinox  (vernal and autumnal) and is from Wikimedia Commons.

    On this day the sun rises exactly at due East and sets at due west. This fact makes it a good day for finding due east and due west from your favourite site for watching the night sky. Simply go outside around sunset or sunrise and notice the exact location of the sun on the horizon with respect to familiar landmarks. See Earthsky Websitefor more.

    PhuelHere is an Angela McGerr Angelic Meditation with Barakiel (the ruler of Pisces) and Phuel (guardian angel of water) which could be conducted for the Equinox 

    The Zodiac Sign of Pisces is ruled by Neptune and is of course a Water Sign. 

    This Equinox day (final day of the Sign) gives you an opportunity to use the healing powers of Barakiel, Ruler of Pisces, and Phuel, Angel Ruler of Neptune, who is also Lord of Waters and Powers of the Moon.

    See image of Phuel (right) by Richard Rockwood, taken from Angela's Harmony Angel Cards, last few copies available from our Harmony Shop as it's now out of print).

    Try this exercise with these two mighty Angels. Use it to heal, wash away emotional turbulence and hurt, for heart and thymus to re-expand. 

    • You could do this exercise while in the bath, or just swimming, or if this is impossible just use your imagination.
    • Sit quietly and focus your attention within, thinking about your desire to calm your emotions.  Say Barakiel’s and Phuel's names three times to invite them in.
    • If you have an aquamarine (one of Phuel's crystals), hold this in your left hand and it will be programmed with healing during this exercise.
    • Start taking deep breaths of blue green energy, breathing them right down through your body.
    • Imagine you are walking in a beautiful place of nature.
    • Presently you come to a pool of crystal clear water, reflecting a blue sky.
    • Know that with the power of water energy your spirit can go down into this water to be healed and washed clean of emotional turbulence.
    • Imagine that you can step into the water and float in it. 
    • If you wish to you can merge for a short time with the water itself, becoming the medium that nourishes fish and other water creatures.
    • The water is very still, silken in texture and peaceful.
    • The sun shines into its depths, lighting the grains of sand at the bottom.
    • Let go of your cares; they are washed away by the healing power of water.
    • When you feel relaxed, come out of the water (real or imaginary)
    • Ask Phuel to seal in your emotional healing, and seal your crystal with silver and aquamarine rays; remember to thank him and Barakiel for their assistance.

  • Geminid image from Earthsky websiteThursday 13th - Friday 14th December. The Geminids are considered by many to be the best meteor shower in the heavens, and are known for producing multicoloured meteors 65% being white, 26% yellow, and the remaining 9% blue, red and green. Rates typically peak at 100-120/hour; this high activity lasts for several hours. It is certainly possible to see 80-100 Geminids in a single hour, but only from a dark site! With the recent New Moon, viewing could be excellent, weather permitting. The Geminid Meteor Shower is expected to peak in activity on the night of December 13th-14th, although some meteors should be visible from December 7th – 21st. The radiant point for this shower will be in the constellation Gemini. Best viewing is usually to the east after midnight; ideally at 02.00 GMT. With the New Moon on the 7th December, this will be the waxing Quarter Moon, so not too hampered by light pollution hopefully. However the Geminid meteors – like meteors in all annual showers – may appear in all parts of the sky.

    Go to Earthsky Website for lots of additional information, from which this image was taken.

  • leonid Meteor image

    Friday 17th & Saturday 18th November; it is the Leonid meteors; one of the most prolific meteor showers also known as shooting stars. The shower peaks this year the night of 17th/18th November and 18/19th November, but you may see some meteors from 14th - 21st November. With the New Moon tomorrow (see below) at 11.42 there should be good viewings if the weather stays clear. See Time & Date website or EarthSky Website for more. 

    The Leonids have had occasional periods when hundreds of meteors can be seen, roughly every 33 years, and were especially stunning in 1799, 1833, 1866, 1966 and 1998.  Photo of Leonid Meteor in 2009 by Ed Sweeney at Flickr.

    leonid radiant point

    Look for the shower radiating from the constellation Leo after midnight. This meteor stream is associated with Comet Tempel-Tuttle. As the meteors in the stream are thought to be dust particles released from the comet it is thought likely that there is a dense stream of such particles in the path of the comet and located close to it. The Earth's orbit passes close to the comet's orbit each year in November and the Earth collides with these particles of cometary debris following the comet's orbit.  According to the EarthSky Website, it is a myth that we need focus only on ethe radiant point to see Meteors.  In fact it seems theyoften don’t become visible until they are 30 degrees or so from their radiant point, so they are streaking out from the radiant in all directions.

    Thus the Leonid meteors – like meteors in all annual showers – will appear in all parts of the sky.

    Even if you can't see anything, there will be an impact energetically.

    The New Moon Abundance Ritual should be carried out within 24 hours after the New Moon.

    Look to the northeast after midnight; with the recent Full Moon on Monday 7th August, viewing could be limited. 

    See diagram in the entry under 10th August below and also see timeanddate.com 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 22 and 21 (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.

    Look to the northeast after midnight; with the New Moon on Saturday 11th August, viewing could be excellent.

    The Perseids is one of the best meteor showers to observe, producing up to 60 meteors per hour at their peak. The shower's peak usually occurs on August 10th - 13th (after midnight on these dates so in the early hours of 11th - 14th), but you may be able to see some meteors any time between 17th July and 24th August. See timeanddate.com website for more.

    Zikiel croppedTo 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 23 and 22 (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.

  • TQuadrantidsuesday 3rd/Wednesday 4th Januaryis the peak of the Quadrantids Meteor Shower; visible from 1st – 5th January generally after midnight, but this year peaking at 21.00 hrs GMT/UTC on 3rd January. Typically, 40 or so bright, blue and fast (25.5 miles per second) meteors will radiate from the constellation Bootes, some blazing more than halfway across the sky. A small percentage of them leave persistent dust trains. This shower usually has a very sharp peak, usually lasting only about an hour. 

    The particles that cause the Quadrantid meteor show originate from the asteroid 2003 EH1 an asteroid that is probably a piece broken off from an obsolete comet. Since the orbit of 2003 EH1 is highly inclined to the orbit of the Earth, the Earth passes through it very quickly. Thus, the Quadrantid meteor shower is an extremely short one, lasting only a few hours.  This year we have the New Moon on 29th December which may enhance the viewing. Image is from the EarthSky Website,which is well worth visiting for more details.

    Even if you can't see anything, there will be an impact energetically.

    Zikiel croppedYou 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.

    Zadkiel offers you a visionary flash of inspiration from the Sky.

    Zikiel 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 prgramme 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 (gerenerally also personally signed by her) available via Harmony Healing Shop.

  • QuadrantidsWednesday 3rd/Thursday 4th Januaryis the peak of the Quadrantids Meteor Shower; visible from 1st – 5th January generally after midnight, but this year peaking in the predawn hours on 3rd & 4th January. Typically, 40 or so bright, blue and fast (25.5 miles per second). The radiant point of the Quadrantid shower makes an approximate right angle with The Plough (Big Dipper to US readers) and the bright star Arcturus. If you trace the paths of the Quadrantid meteors backward, they appear to radiate from this point on the starry sky. A small percentage of them leave persistent dust trains. This shower usually has a very sharp peak, usually lasting only about an hour. 

    The particles that cause the Quadrantid meteor show originate from the asteroid 2003 EH1 an asteroid that is probably a piece broken off from an obsolete comet. Since the orbit of 2003 EH1 is highly inclined to the orbit of the Earth, the Earth passes through it very quickly. Thus, the Quadrantid meteor shower is an extremely short one, lasting only a few hours.  This year we have the New Moon early on 6th January which may enhance the viewing.

  • leonid Meteor image

    Sunday 17th & Monday 18th November; it is the Leonid meteors; one of the most prolific meteor showers also known as shooting stars. The shower peaks this year the night of 17th/18th November and 18/19th November, but you may see some meteors from 14th - 21st November. With the Full Moon on the 12th November this is just before the quarter moon, so there could be reasonable viewings if the weather stays clear. See Time & Date website  or EarthSky Website for more. 

    The Leonids have had occasional periods when hundreds of meteors can be seen, roughly every 33 years, and were especially stunning in 1799, 1833, 1866, 1966 and 1998.  Photo of Leonid Meteor in 2009 by Ed Sweeney at Flickr.

    This shower has produce meteor storms in the past, but a Leonid storm is not expected this year. The Leonids are usually modest, with typical peak rates of about 10 to 15 meteors per hour, in the darkness before dawn. Look for the shower radiating from the constellation Leo after midnight. This meteor stream is associated with Comet Tempel-Tuttle. As the meteors in the stream are thought to be dust particles released from the comet it is thought likely that there is a dense stream of such particles in the path of the comet and located close to it. The Earth's orbit passes close to the comet's orbit each year in November and the Earth collides with these particles of cometary debris following the comet's orbit.  According to the EarthSky Website, it is a myth that we need focus only on ethe radiant point to see Meteors. In fact it seems they often don’t become visible until they are 30 degrees or so from their radiant point, so they are streaking out from the radiant in all directions.

    Thus the Leonid meteors – like meteors in all annual showers – will appear in all parts of the sky.

    Even if you can't see anything, there will be an impact energetically.

  • Thursday 21st December is the Pagan Solstice @ 16.28.  Here in the UK, it's the Winter Solstice; the shortest day of the year with only 7 hours and 50 minutes daylight between Dawn (at 08.03 in London) until Dusk (at 15.53 in London). The solstice itself is the time when the sun is shining farthest to the south, directly over the Tropic of Capricorn, so the time varies every year, between December 20th and 23rd.

    The solstice has been celebrated for thousands of years as a major Pagan festival with rituals of rebirth. Revellers will gather at Stonehenge to watch the sunrise on the shortest day. Then, here in the Northern Hemisphere, our days will gradually get longer until the summer solstice on Thursday 21st June 2018.

    Many believe that the traditions now associated with Christmas had their roots in Pagan Winter Solstice celebrations; including misteltoe, Yule logs and even Christmas trees. The Druids  - an ancient Celtic order of priests, diviners, teachers and magicians who gleaned knowledge and enlightenment from ancient trees such as ‘Tutorial Oaks’ and sacred landscapes - used evergreen trees, mistletoe and holly (could the word 'holy' be derived from this) to represent everlasting life.  Druids consider the cutting of trees an offence against nature, but would happily decorate them with colourful rags tied onto the branches. 

    22 22 Silver Platinum Star Gate of Moons from Angela McGerrs Love Light CardsAccording to Simone Metthews at UniversalLifeTools, this year, as every year, we have an interesting galactic alignment between the 18th December (which happened to be the New Moon this year) and the 22nd December.  During this period the Earth, Sun and Galactic Centre (in Sagittarius) are aligned along the same plane within our Milky Way.  We also have what Simone refers to as a Galactic Evolutionary Tetrahedron formed by connecting the Earth, Sirius, Alcyone (in the constellation of Taurus) with our Galactic Centre.

    Simone recommends that during this time we can energetically connect wth the structure of the water within us and set the intention fornit to become liquid cystalline.  This is said to activate our DNA and attune us to our genetic potential and achieve the best template for ourselves to help us towards our evolutionary and life purpose.  More details on the Galactic Alignment on Simone's website.

    I will be meditating on this between 05.00 and 06.00hrs at Clandon Wood Nature Reserve tomorrow morning followed by a gong session with Gary Evans and Olga Terebenina.  The image on the right shows 22:22 Silver Platinum Star Gate of Moons drawn by Richard Rockwood from Angela McGerr's Love & Light Cards.

     

  • Friday 21st December is the Pagan Solstice @ 22.22.  It's the Winter Solstice here in the UK - the shortest day of the year with just 7 hours and 49 minutes daylight. The solstice itself is the moment the sun is shining farthest to the south, directly over the Tropic of Capricorn, so the time is varies every year, between December 20th and 23rd.

    The solstice has been celebrated for thousands of years as a major Pagan festival with rituals of rebirth. Revellers will gather at Stonehenge to watch the sunrise on the shortest day. Then, here in the Northern Hemisphere, our days will gradually get longer until the summer solstice on Friday 21st June 2019.

This year it is between the 7th December (New Moon this year) and the 22nd/23rd December (Full Moon in UK at 17.50 on 22nd but takes place on 23rd December in some countries).  On 19th December, the Earth, Sun and Galactic Centre (in Sagittarius) are aligned along the same plane within our Milky Way.  We also have what Simone refers to as a Galactic Evolutionary Triangle - a Tetrahedron formed by connecting the Earth, Sirius, Alcyone with our Galactic Centre.

    Simone recommends that during this time we can energetically connect wth the structure of the water within us and set the intention fornit to become liquid cystalline. This is said to activate our DNA and attune us to our genetic potential and achieve the best template for ourselves to help us towards our evolutionary and life purpose. More details on the Galactic Alignment on Simone's website.
