Dear reader, please notice that, at the moment, I am busy streamlining the navigation on my site, in the hope of making it easier for you to find the articles you may be interested in. I realized recently that the site is difficult to navigate because of the way it has been structured, in a blog form, with recent articles on top and old ones lost in the great beyond. While searching myself for a post I had written few years back I was unable to find it! I am now collecting all the posts on similar subjects under the same heading on the menu bar. There is in fact lots more to this site that it is apparent at first.

This is still a work in process and will take some time. Thank you for your support throughout the years, Paola Emma4

Lyrids Meteor Showers April 16-25, peaking on April 22/23

Lyrids Meteors Showers April 23 2017, around 3.40 am, looking North, Eastern Australia

Lyrids Meteors Showers April 23 2017, around 3.40 am, looking North, Eastern Australia

The sky is getting clearer while the nights are getting colder in our Southern latitudes. Great times to observe the stars and planets. The yearly meteor showers located near the Lyrid constellation reach their peak on April 22 and 23, from about 10 pm to the pre-dawn hours, the latter better than the earlier time, looking northward from Australia.

This time around it could be an interesting show even for us in the Southern Hemisphere, despite the Northern location of the Lyre constellation. Fifteen to twenty meteors per hour are expected. The bright star Vega could be used as a sign post for finding the showers’ location.

According to the Australian Geographic website: “The Lyrids have the longest recorded history of any meteor shower, with observations dating back to at least 687BC…. this shower… letting us see pieces of a comet (Comet C/1861 G1, Thatcher) that currently lies more than a hundred billion kilometers distant.”

Happy sky watching…

The Waxing Moon transits Aries from March 28 to 30, during the New Moon Phase

ARIES, Moon of initiative and action
Energetic and fiery

From March 28. 1.10 am, to March 30, 2.47 am

Suitable energy for taking on challenges, participating in competitions, performing daring feats, arduous exercises, physical work, to begin new ventures, or to perform action for its own sake. Purchase of sporting gear, protective gear, hats, tools, stoves, firewood, machinery, cars, bikes, leather objects. The mood is decisive, enterprising, impulsive, militant, spirited, visionary. Honest, direct expression of feelings, strong instinct, but somewhat insensitive. Beware of emotional extremes, head strong, bossy, uncompromising attitudes, lack of empathy, antagonism, aggression, selfishness.

♣ ♣ ♣ In the garden Aries is traditionally considered too hot, dry and barren for growing anything. Its energy is very suitable instead for cultivating, general maintenance, pruning, pest control, weeding, and harvesting. Plants sown with the Moon in Aries will soon go to seed, due to this Sign’s notorious impatience. Suitable only for early crops.

♥ ♥ ♥ Healing Herbs: Burdock, Gotu Kola, Red Clover.

A note: the garden activities associated with the Moon Sign depend also on the cycle the Moon is in. The Moon transiting through a fertile or productive Sign will no be so favorable if the Phase is not a productive one, and vice-versa. For best results the Sign and Phase of the Moon have to be considered together

The New Moon

The New Moon is the beginning of the Waxing cycle, the sacred marriage of Moon and Sun, Yin and Yang, Night and Day. For three days the Moon becomes invisible. Astrologically we say that the Moon is now conjunct the Sun (on the same degree of Longitude along the Ecliptic). Every month the New Moon occurs in a different Sign. So the Aries New Moon in March/April is always followed by the Taurus New Moon in April/May and so on. New Moons are symbols of new beginning and represent a great time to start something or make important changes in our lives. The energy is right for everything new you would like to try.

♣ ♣ ♣ In the garden this is traditionally a time to begin sowing and planting because the increasing Moon light will help plants to emerge and flourish. Moisture becomes more and more available as the light of the Moon intensifies, up to the Full Moon. Traditionally however no sowing or planting are recommended within twelve hours of the phase itself.
