Star Magic & the Ways of the Stars: Perseid Meteor Shower 2018 will occur from August 12 – August 13. Tonight, it will rain stars … AND FIREBALLS!
The Perseid Meteor Shower 2018 – the Most interesting one?
Although last year’s Perseid Meteor Shower was less miraculous than before, this year’s Perseid Meteor Shower is going to be pretty spectacular. It will rain 80-100 falling stars per hour. In 2016 the rate was increased by 150 up to 200 beautiful falling stars per hour. Nature has scheduled a show that we should not miss.
“The moon is very favorable for the Perseids this year, and that’ll make the Perseids probably the best shower of 2018 for people who want to go out and view it. The Perseids are rich in fireballs, so the show should be even better.”, based on what NASA meteor expert Bill Cooke told on Space.com
Why is the Moon so favorable? Because it’s close to the New Moon – Solar Eclipse! The darkest the skies, the most spectacular the Meteor Shower!
“This year the moon will be near new moon, it will be a crescent, which means it will set before the Perseid show gets underway after midnight,” he added. So what are we going to do tomorrow night? We are going to enjoy the most spectacular show of Nature!
Though sporadic shooting stars adorn the dark sky on any given night of the year, meteor showers are usually annual events with really impressive magical impact. This meteor shower derives its name from the constellation Perseus, because the meteors seem to stream from this realm of the sky.
Star Magic and Star Witches
Witchcraft of the Stars has always been considered powerful and it dates back to the ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia. In fact, Star Magic is considered one of the oldest and most powerful forms of Magic. A Star Magician taps into the powers of the Stars in order to collect and direct the energy of the Stars.
One “branch” of Star Magic is Astrology, the art of foretelling the Future by knowing the ways of the Stars. An ancient Mage would never distinguish Witchcraft from Astrology as the system was born and evolved together as one. The Three Wise Men who predicted the coming of Jesus Christ were in fact Powerful Mages from Mesopotamia who studied the ways of the Stars.
Becoming a Star Mage or a Star Witch one must begin to know the ways of the Stars. In Magical Recipes Online we’ll give you tons of Lessons on Astrology and in Star Magic too. Another thing about Stars Magic is that’s so fun! We love looking at the night sky. It connects us wit the divine.
The Magic of Perseids
Legend has it that Perseid Meteor shower is literally magical fire. Perseus is slayer of the powerful gorgon Medusa and rescuer of Queen Cassiopeia. Perseus son of Zeus took her head and gave it to Olympus only to become the powerful shield of Goddess Athena. Perseus was believed to ride the magnificent winged horse, Pegasus.
Some Catholics refer to the Perseids as the “tears of Saint Lawrence” who was burnt alive, suspended in the sky but returning to earth once a year.
The Celestial Mage
Ptolemy, the Greek founder of Modern Astorlogy & Astronomy, wrote that the Gods peer down at the earth from between the Celestial spheres.
The Celestial spheres (or cosmic spheres, or celestial orbs) were the fundamental entities of the cosmological models developed by Plato, Aristotle, Ptolemy and later Copernicus and others. In these celestial models the apparent motions of the planets and the other stars are accounted for “by treating them as embedded in rotating spheres made of an aetherial, transparent fifth element – aka quintessence – like bright gems set in orbs. Ptolemy stated that while this happens, stars sometimes slip out of this gap, flashing towards the earth. Shooting stars are hence an indication that the Gods are now paying attention to whatever you would ask for.
