The Ophiuchid meteor shower will reach its maximum rate of activity tonight. Some shooting stars associated with the shower are expected to be visible to the naked eye. The Ophiuchids can be seen all night long, but are best observed around midnight. Ophiuchus the Serpent Bearer is depicted as holding Serpens the Serpent, which is considered a separate constellation. According to ancient Greek star lore, Ophiuchus is Asclepius, the physician who concocted a healing potion from the Serpent’s venom, mixing it with the Gorgon’s blood and an unknown herb. This potion gave humans access to immortality, until the god of the underworld appealed to Zeus to reconsider the ramifications of the death of death.
The Waning Gibbous Moon is the fading phase of the Full Moon, with a visibility of 97%. It still has a positive, strong force. Take advantage of the vibes of this Moon. Resentment is not a positive and seems to lead to retaliation. We feel justified in evening up the score, and paying somebody back for what they have done to us, especially when we feel attacked and mistreated. Any attempt at retaliation for an injury can only react unhappily on us. It’s unrealistic to expect that people will always behave in a way that is pleasing to us. Resentful thoughts can grow into attacks on other human beings. Retaliation may feel good in the moment, but shortly thereafter, we usually feel worse than we did before we sought that revenge. One bad turn does not excuse another. Stop, and take a deep breath. Remember that what comes around goes around, even with you doing nothing. Give two compliments today. There will be times when you want to say something unkind, give that a compliment, instead. Watch attitudes change.
