The 2011 Leonid Meteor Shower Roars

Wed, 11/16/2011 - 04:46 pm PST by Karen A Kay

It's a big news week for planetary bodies! I'm talking about asteroids and meteors, which don't play as large a part in Astrology as the Big 10 planets -- but which do still manage to influence our moods here on Earth.

First, asteroid Chiron "the wounded healer" went direct last Thursday, Nov. 10, marking a time of more soul searching. And now the 2011 Leonid meteor shower will peak around 7 p.m. (PST) this Thursday, Nov. 17, becoming even more visible after midnight.

For the best viewing (from any point in the world) look to the Eastern sky between Thursday at midnight and Friday morning at dawn. The Leonid meteors will appear to come from the constellation Leo, for which they are named, on the east point of the horizon. And as our friends at NationalGeographic.com point out, the Moon and Mars are both in Leo right now, so you can use those as a visual marker to help pinpoint the Leonids radiating point (or shall we say "roaring point" in honor of Leo the Lion.)

Astrology is all about how what’s going on in the cosmos impacts the mood on Earth -- even on an individual level. When a planet makes a big transit, astrologers take note. And when there’s a spectacular show in the sky, like the Leonid meteor shower, there’s always a connection to how it impacts our mood.

How can you not feel the energy on Earth when the sky gets electric?! Just take a look up to catch the annual Leonid star storm Thursday night and see if you don't feel sparky just watching!

Had quite a good view of the Leonids here in southeast Scotland altho admittedly not the most spectacular I have seen.Looking forward to the Geminids.

Unfortunately, the Leonids are unlikely to be much to see this year. "On the peak night you might count a dozen Leonid meteors per hour before the beginning of dawn under excellent conditions," said Alan MacRobert, senior editor at Sky & Telescope magazine.
There's another shower, though, the Geminids, coming around Dec. 14. When they're their best, you may see 100 shooting stars an hour . (ABC News)

Long distance relationships can be love's worst enemy. Yet in today's economy, long-distance love is more common than ever.

With enough trust, communication and hard work, couples can learn to make their romance thrive in spite of the miles between them. ... continued »
