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.
