Astrological Significance Of Meteor Showers

What is the astrological significance of meteor showers?

These days, none. But in ancient days, people followed them avidly.

Planets, you understand, are wanderers. That is literally what the word “planet” means. And the stars are fixed. So when fragments of rocks from asteroids or comets break off and turn into meteor showers, they’re coming from a particular constellation. And, once upon a time, that was seen as significant. They saw them as a portent of change, along with Eclipses.

Whenever you see a meteor or shooting star, you make a wish. It’s not necessarily because of any particular alignment with where-ever that bit of burning rock came from. But star-gazing and viewing spectacular phenomena like meteor showers reminds us of the galaxy’s vastness.

We came from the stars and one day, despite punitive religious stories to the contrary, our soul returns there.

There is an astrological significance of meteor showers but it’s beyond human understanding. It’s not so simple as Gemini meteors give Geminis a more scattered consciousness. Or that Scorpio meteors zooming around are of particular import for Scorpio people.

Anecdotally, meteor showers coincide with lucid dreaming and hypnogogic consciousness.

hmm well yesterday, I got the day off of work. Still had class. Class put me in an edgy mood. I have company coming over today. Yesterday I saged some rooms in the house for the first time ever. I have Scorpio Moon, Pluto, Liltih, and Vertex in the 6th house after all.

Aaaahhh! MM’s description of what’s going on, the feel of it, even the picture reminds me of Battlestar Galactica when Starbuck kills herself by flying into the asteroid vortex. She- and her inner child- looked so serene- The end of one life of pain for a whole new beginning elsewhere…
I LOVE the time-warp, bittersweet nostalgia tripping that’s going on right now. Microscorpic alchemic changes are manifesting, faster and faster until BOOM! They have crystallised, I am different; The next phase of my life has begun…

that is very interesting! So having three planets in Scorpio in the tenth should make for a very accelerated growth time for me. It has been..and there are a multitude of tasks which i must perform each week..it almost gets overwhelming..but I keep doing it! I am excited and I don’t not know why..I feel way more confident to say no, I am busy this day or I need to rest… The whole time thing is all strange to me..I wonder how much i will know in the next life, I mean I could already be in the next life… Read more »

and it is for me personally too.

Leads for some interesting days.

Have Saturn conjunct my moon coming up to opposition my natal Saturn but have Neptune trining said moon. Have been searching out the deeper well through meditations and mandalas and have been feeling very equaniminous, peaceful even, whilst finally realising that I should not put up with toxic types. Was dreading this transit, have had the worst creative block on board for awhile, yet can now feel it shifting, not in a hammer and tongs kind of way but cautiously and subtly if that makes sense. Had the pleasure to also attend an esoteric astrology workshop the other night. I… Read more »

Actually thinking of my first tattoo next month being the constellation of Scorpio on the back of my neck. Although, trying to find something more classy. Tattoos classy…? Yeah, right. Gotta sacrifice my Grace Kelly logic. Sigh…

This period of time has triggered some severe grief responses in me, and a couple of conflicts, one has broken my heart the other is breaking my spirit or maybe just ego…. So mostly I feel broken… And the tears just keep flowing… I’m in a horrid little town though I’m learning to find the beauty but very alone… Is it these emotions I’m having to master? Or am I needing to say enough is enough and stand up risking so much? Is my heart just breaking open wider, or will I age and get sick w this uncontrollable sadness?… Read more »

If you are tired then you should rest. If you are crying then make a boat and sail away on your river of tears. If you are fighting then surrender to your own higher will. Nothing is permanent. Saturn is clearly on your case and cannot be dismissed for what it teaches us. Every seven years it flicks about our charts to redefine us in some way along with at times sadness, discipline and outmoded things. Not that I’m in anyway institutional religious wise but I always love that quote from the Bible about how the time comes for us… Read more »

As an early deg of Leo Sun I am finding this Scorp energy a bit of a drag tbh.

Wheels are grinding, needing to triple check stuff that I thought I had mastered, uncomfortable truths reminding me I am not out of the woods quite yet…or perhaps it will always be this way?

But a least I can look fwd to the Scorpio Saturn etc trining my Venus, Saturn & Mercury in Cancer.
It’s meant to give a more success inviting, mature response to things.

I have Pluto in Scorpio. Does this explain why everything is moving so damn slowly for me at the moment? Yeesh.

I’m an intense Scorpio affected person at the best of times, currently going through a fear and loathing in las Vegas without the drugs, crazy hell, entry of Saturn into the significant placement of Scorpio on the wheel of life….

Transformation can be so fucking hard!

Wow.

I am LOVING this energy, all this Scorp is making me feel super powered in the nicest possible way, it’s like the perfect antidote to the scattered, hysterical feeling of endless Uranus pratting about on my ASC/Venus/everything else.

I feel the same way. I’m finding it easier to sort out the wheat from the chaff in people/situations/goals. I’m expressing my power but without the neurotic second-guessing as to whether I’m overdoing it.

And this Saturn-Neptune is uncanny. My intuition has always been strong, but never this sure-footed.

Oh I know, the intuition stuff is off the scale, over drive, like almost being able to see through time. Bizarre and amazing, I don’t want it to go away!

The family is getting together in December as per my Mother, Scorpio’s, request. My Mom, in my opinion, is not doing to well.. My brothers feel the opposite and accuse me over reacting. Well.. at least I have said my peace. If she lives well for the next couple of years then great but I am worried.

Let’s see how the family works out in December.

Ummm.. does this apply to the post? And I love the photo!

xo!!

Today seems to have been super Neptunian for me. Spent time this afternoon with my parents-in-law watching videos of myself and my children 18 years ago. They are getting on and although it was a happy occasion, tinged with sadness for the death of their son, my husband and poignant is other ways as well. They are so incredibly self-contained, I had to disguise the fact that I kept getting teary. They’re old school, overt displays of emotion are considered self-indulgent.

Get your hands on the footage and watch them again some time in private!! If you feel self conscious or judged then you can bawl in privacy & enjoy x

yes – sounds a sad scenario and its important to be able to let loose in private x x

Thanks, that’s a good idea, I will get a copy. It was just so moving you know, because I know they are preparing themselves for their own deaths as well, and there they were, straight backed and cheerful.

Cinematic sense of the various eras in our life? Man, this is exactly what has been playing in my mind for 2 days. It’s been more motivating than anything.

Massive meteor just touched down (with boom) in the SF Bay Area a few hours ago…

Finally feeling better! The mojo is back. In a balanced way. Aug-Sept was ROUGH. Was feeling weary from the last few years. I now am seeing more clearly. Accepting. Love the Scorp energy so far! And, per your other post, I feel like the Neptune in Aquaries WAS another life. Maybe that’s my time warp. I sometimes feel like the Talking Heads song “This is not my beautiful house. This is not my beautiful wife. How did I get here?” And, strangely, regarding your commets in other posts about past love, etc. I have been seeing someone since February (When… Read more »

I’m feeling the warped time vibe too. I quite like it!

Is that a StarWalk screen shot? I do love how they include asteroid showers in it. Such a trip to sit there and watch an asteroid shower on your phone.

I quite like the warped time vibe. Time does move at different speeds.
It can be complicated in interrelations though, when for example other people are moving in clock time but your own actions and interactions are happening in faster or slower time frames.
I tend to forget to lengthen the past and shorten the future.

I love scorp energy. But I have mars and mercury in Scorpio.
