Happiness is in the Astrological sign Ophiuchus, bringing healing to those who are open to receive it. Healing starts with gratitude and love. When we choose to give love, when we aren’t concerned whether it is returned or not, it will be fulfillment in itself. We should believe that it is through giving love, freely and without any strings attached, that we will receive our best rewards. When we are of service to others, whether it is just pitching in to help with small chores, or giving comfort and reassurance to others in trouble, we are giving love. If you are going through life always looking to “get” something, know that “getting” depends largely on our willingness to give. Take ten minutes today to give love to someone in need.
April 22, 23 – Lyrids Meteor Shower. The Lyrids is an amazing shower, usually producing about 20 meteors per hour at its peak. It is produced by dust particles left behind by comet C/1861 G1 Thatcher, which was discovered in 1861. The shower runs annually from April 16-25. It peaks this year on the night of the 22nd and morning of the 23rd. These meteors can sometimes produce bright dust trails that last for several seconds. The Waning Gibbous Moon will block out many of the fainter meteors this year, but if you are patient you should still be able to catch a few of the brightest ones. Best viewing will be from a dark location after midnight. Meteors will radiate from the constellation Lyra, but can appear anywhere in the sky.
This is the perfect time to Wish upon a Shooting Star. When beginning to observe the Lyrids Meteor Shower, close your eyes and relax. Focus on things that your heart desires the most. Pick the one that is most important to you. Stay focused on this one wish. Open your eyes and wait for the Shooting Star. State your Wish. Then thank the Divine Forces that helped you. Now live it as if it already happened!
