Star Magic, the Ways of the Stars: 2017 Orionid Meteor Shower October 20 – October 22. 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 Orionid Meteor Shower 2017
One of the year’s most amazing celestial shows will peak this weekend – prion Halloween. The days when we can enjoy the Orionid Meteor shower are between October 20 and 22.
Why is the Orionid Meteor Shower so magnificent?
The meteors which will illuminate the sky are some of the fastest and brightest among meteor showers as the Orionids originate from the dust and particles left behind by Halley’s Comet. This famous comet orbits the Sun and appears closer to our planet every 75 years.
But as the alien comet dances around the Sun, it leaves behind a trail of stardust. When these particles join our orbit we see this magnificent show. The Orionids get their name because these meteors seem to explode from the constellation of Orion the Hunter.
To enjoy the shower, even more, setup your alarm around 4 am (or stay away with your buds – family) and watch the shower in the darkest hours before the dawn. See more in timeanddate.com
The Magic of Orionid Meteor Shower
Legend has it that Orion was a giant hunter, son of the Poseidon, god of all waters. Because he was the son of Poseidon we could walk on the see and all waters. Orion was such a great hunter that he even believed he could hunt goddess of the Moon and Hunting, Artemis (Diana in Latin) along with every beast on Earth (which was also protected by Artemis).
Another version of the story says that Orion accidentally caught sight of 7 beautiful nymphs – daughters of Atlas and Pleione, the Pleiades, companions of Artemis. He was dazzled by their beauty and begun to chase after them.
In both cases, the Great Goddess of Earth, Gaia intervened. She was furious and sent a giant scorpion to poison and kill Orion. Both Orion and the scorpion put by Zeus in the Stars as constellations. Orion is chasing the Pleiades who is being chased be Scorpio.
Astrology: Of course, this has its own astrological significance. The Meteor shower from Orion – Scorpio – the Pleiades is usually a potent omen.
