Leonid Meteor Shower November 17 – 18.
Tonight, it will rain stars!
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 with the divine.
The Leonid Meteor Shower 2017
One of the year’s most amazing celestial shows will peak this weekend when we will have the chance to observe the magic of shooting stars. The nights when we can enjoy the Leonid Meteor shower are between November 17 to 18.
Why is the Leonid Meteor Shower so magnificent?
The Following two nights will be spectacularly illuminated by the Leonid Meteor Shower. This Leonid meteor shower is responsible for some of the most intense meteor storms in human history. There were times when meteors fall at rates as high as 50,000 per hour… imagine 850 shooting stars EVERY MINUTE!!!
However, these storms are a very rare phenomenon and this year, astronomers believe that we will enjoy about 20 shooting stars per hour… yet we can still hope for REAL MAGIC.
The Leonids occur as the Earth moves through the dust trail of the 55P/Tempel-Tuttle comet a periodic comet with an orbital period of 33 years. This Comet was first discovered by Wilhelm Tempel on December 19, 1865. It is believed that more than 13 tons of stardust have ‘touched’ Earth’s atmosphere causing these spectacular Meteor Shower.
Weather permitting, observers around the world should be able to see the brightest “Leonids” streak across the sky from Friday night through Sunday morning.
The Magic of Leonid Meteor Shower
The Northern Hemisphere will mostly be treated with the celestial prime show, as it has the best view of the constellation Leo, from which the meteor shower derives its name. The fifth of zodiac signs, Leo, is inspired by the Legend of Hercules’ very first labor. The capture and killing of the Nemean Lion which was terrorizing people. Hercules managed to defeat this powerful beast. He skinned the lion and wore it a cape. This impenetrable fur kept Hercules safe from blades and arrows.
Astrology: Of course, this has its own astrological significance. The Leonid Meteor shower is a reminder of Leo’s grace and charisma.
