Though sporadic shooting stars adorn the dark sky on any given night of the year, meteor showers are usually annual events with a 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 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 its such fun! We love looking at the night sky. It connects us with the divine.
The Magic of Perseids
Legend has it that Perseid Meteor shower is literally a magical fire. Perseus is the slayer of the powerful gorgon Medusa and the 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 were burnt alive, suspended in the sky but returning to earth once a year.
The Celestial Mage
Ptolemy, the Greek founder of Modern Astrology & 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.
