2018 has definitely not been lacking in amazing cosmic events so far, but there are so many more to come! In the world of the celestial bodies, change and progress are forever flourishing.
Below I am going to go over some of the more prominent cosmic events to come and what they might mean for you. Whether they are merely fun to watch or hold deep spiritual meaning, it is all up to you. With that being said, the energies heading our way and before us are quite prominent, whether you want to accept them or not.
How many of these did you already know of, or were looking forward to? I for one will be looking forward to most of them. Our world is a truly mighty one.
While this one cannot be seen, it will be quite intense energetically. It will be under the influence of the Cancer new moon and bring forth lots of new beginnings. Whether you want it to affect you or not is not going to matter, we will all be feeling this energy.
This one will be visible for most of Asia, Europe, and Africa. It will also be bringing forth an intense energetic charge. It will enhance the power of the moon and truly bring out some of the best parts of each of us. While you might not think much of these kinds of things, they really do make a difference in our lives.
This meteor shower is one of the most active and brightest there is each year. It comes from the debris of the comet Swift-Tuttle and is named after the constellation Perseus. While peak will be on the night of the 12th you might notice shooting stars as early as July 17th and as late as August 24th.
This will be the first official day of Fall, and it will mark the changing of seasons in the Northern Hemisphere. This is the time to really harvest the fruit of all that you have been working towards in recent times. There is a very deep spiritual side to the coming of Fall.
This will be an interesting meteor shower, but it might not be as active as we would want it to be. This one gets its name from the constellation Draco and comes from debris left by the comet 21 P/ Giacobini-Zinner. In the past, it has been quite the show, but recently it has not been as prominent.
This one should show at least 20 meteors per hour if operating properly depending on the weather. This one is powered by dust from Halley’s Comet and comes from the Orion constellation. It is usually quite the show!
This one should peak at about 20 meteors per hour and will come from the constellation Leo. As usual whether or not you can see these shooting stars depends on the weather. This one is sometimes quite intense and can be viewed regardless of the hemisphere you are in.
This one is probably the best meteor shower we have all year. It peaks at about 120 meteors per hour on a good night and comes from the constellation Gemini. It is a shower unlike any other.
This is the shortest day of the year and marks the onset of winter. It is a day that many celebrate and dread; it brings a strong energy with it. This being the energy that pushes us to really carry a sense of hope with us. In this, we are moving towards a vision that things we want will truly become reality in the months to come.
It is also important to note that there will be the Ursids meteor shower on December 22nd. This meteor shower usually peaks out at around 10 meteors per hour.
Will you be taking the time to watch any of these cosmic events? I know I will!
