Taurus Monthly Horoscope: Lyrids Meteor Shower
April 22, 23 – Lyrids Meteor Shower. The Lyrids is an average 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!
It is believed that the act of wishing on a shooting star started during the time of Greek astronomer Ptolemy, around 127 AD to 151 AD. He wrote that sometimes the gods also got bored and curious and would occasionally peer down on earth. And in so doing, some stars slipped through the gap between the spheres and became visible as falling or shooting stars. He further added that the gods were more receptive to wishes made during times like those. Whether it is true or just a myth, tonight, look up at the sky and say, Star light, star bright, the first star I see tonight, I wish I may, I wish I might, have the wish I wish tonight. Then enjoy the beauty of the twinkling stars above.
