A Spectacular Meteor Shower
The Geminids Meteor Shower occurs every December when Earth moves through a dust cloud made from the asteroid 3200 Phaethon. This year the shower will peak on December 13-14 between the hours of midnight and dawn, although the bright Full Moon will make it a bit harder to view. There is still a good chance you will get to see it as Geminids Meteor Shower produces more that 150 shooting stars an hour, making it the largest meteor shower of the year. It is also the most colorful. You will be able to see red, blue, yellow, and orange shooting stars.
The Geminids is named after the Gemini star constellation. This is the point in the sky where the meteors appear to be coming from, known as the radiant; however, the meteors don’t actually come from here and will be visible all over the sky, according to NASA.
Ties to Mythology
Castor and Pollux, the twins of the Gemini constellation, sailed on the mythic Argo, captained by the Greek hero Jason. While Castor was the son of a mortal man, Pollux was the son of Zeus, but their love was so deep that Pollux begged Zeus to let his brother share in his immortality. They were rewarded by being transformed into the Gemini constellation. In the days of wooden sailing ships, an electrical occurrence around the masts, known as St. Elmo’s Fire, was thought by sailors to be a gift from these brothers, and a protection for those in deadly peril, a sign that these two. It was a sign that these two legendary sailors loved not only each other, but those who were willing to partake in the same adventures that they too once loved.
The meteor shower that shares their name spreads the hope and reassurance of the Universe having our backs in both life and death throughout the entirety of the heavens, and Pollux did his brother Castor’s. It is a promise and a bond between the Universe and ourselves that cannot be broken, and it is felt throughout the entirety of this heavenly event.
The Effects of the Meteor Shower on You
The Geminids Meteor Shower will create an upheaval in the sky that will be felt in many aspects of your life. Here’s how it may affect your element and sign:
Air: The Geminids appear in Air sign, Gemini – the power of loving partnership. Fellow Air sign, Libra, has the view from above, as a diplomatic sign that determines fairness and balance. Airy Aquarius pours the richness of inspiration from the sky through innovative ideas. All of these ideals offer you the best use of this light show. Know that your ideas must be landed like an expert pilot to reach others.
Fire: Aries/Leo/Sagittarius are founded in the brilliant stars. Phaethon’s cautionary tale reminds us to learn fundamental earthly laws before seeking the brightest light. They include the heroic warrior Aries who defends and protects through inspired action. Leo is the dynamic leader who answers the call to service. Sagittarius has idealistic ideas and shares them through teaching and cosmic comedy. Remember Phaethon to be certain that you’re ready to soar.
Earth: Electric Uranus moved into Taurus, the constellation that rises before Gemini. Aldebaran, Taurus’s “bull’s eye” demands integrity, reminding us that our word is our ultimate power. Virgo, the harvest goddess, asserts that respect and love for our generous planet is interactive. Capricorn carries the load to the mountain top with Saturn and Pluto being joined by Jupiter through 2020. Valid structures in our lives will hold. Others demand radical change – even new foundations.
Water: The prominent, slow-moving planet in the Water signs is enchanting Neptune in his home, Pisces. While it may seem strange, this mutable water-sign links sky and water. The Pisces constellation once included swallows, who are known for navigating the gases and fluids in our atmosphere. They’re connected at the star of the beautiful sacred knot, Al Rescha.
Harmonious Water signs, Cancer and Scorpio, flow with Pisces. Cancer uses love and intuition through family and friends to interpret the flow of finance. Scorpio goes beneath the icy flows to find the hidden jewels within. You assist the Neptunian imagination for a better world.
