Scorpio fell out of the ecliptic and Ophiuchus stepped in.
15 June 2017
We took our dogs for a walk in Delta Park, Johannesburg. Just before 6 am, we saw the most amazing shooting star. It shot so fast and so close I thought it was going to hit earth. It had 5 definite points and started breaking up as it went over the horizon. The most breath taking scene I have ever witnessed in my entire life. Someone asked on 'My Broadband' if others had seen it. It was also broadcasted on the radio during the day.
From the South African Astronomical Observatory website:
Two meteor showers are active in June:
Theta- Ophiuchids: 8 - 16 June peaking on 13th. Best viewed 20:00 pm to 5:30 am.
Look between constellations of Sagittarius, Scorpius and Ophiuchus.
(we saw it at about 5:57 am and it appeared to be travelling from West to East).
June Lyrids: 11 to 21 June peaking on the 16th. Best viewed between 23:30 and 02:00 am.
Low between NW and NE. They will appear to come from the direction of the constellation Lyra (low in the North).
21 April 2014:
As I took my dogs out for a leak at 3 am, I saw the most amazingly clear Scorpio right above me in the sky. While gazing at it in awe, a meteor (shooting star) shot right through the hook part between the heart and the tail. I have never witnessed anything more beautiful. If you live in South Africa and you can bare the cold weather, step out in the early morning hours, especially on 15 May when it will peak, wait for Artemis to shoot you a star, and make that wish, it will surely come true.
When you wish upon a star, makes no difference who you are, anything your heart desires will come to you. (Disney Movie Song).
Exert an enormous influence on the weather /presage major world events /bring about surprising and unexpected events.
It dawned on me that Africa, especially Southern Africa, is under the powerful protection of Scorpio and its guardian Artemis, protector of animals.
The 'shooting star' is part of the Alpha Scorpiids, close to Antares the heart of the Scorpio. This galactic mansion is known for its protective qualities, its ability to hide things only to later expose it to set things right.
Scorpius constellation lies in the Southern sky near the centre of the Milky Way. It is the most Southern Constellation ruled by Mars (some say Pluto). Its ruled by the element of fire. Its number is 9 and its lucky number is 12. Antares, the heart of the Scorpio (Ophiuchus) is strongly under the influence of Mercury which makes it changeable and communicative (including with the spirit world).
Scorpio's brightest stars:
Crown: δ Sco (Dschubba) - its 2nd brightest star.
Heart: α Sco (Antares) - brightest star - Greek Άντάρης, meaning 'like Mars', warrior, royal star.
Tail: λ Sco (Shaula) and υ Sco (Lesath), also known as 'the cat's eyes'.
Scorpius is the 33rd constellation in size, occupying an area of 497 square degrees. It is located in the third quadrant of the southern hemisphere (SQ3) and can be seen at latitudes between +40° and -90°.
Libra lies to the west and Sagittarius to the east.
Alpha Scorpiids 21 Arpil - 26 May - peaks 15 May.
Omega Scorpiids 23 May - 15 June - peaks 31 May.
Orion, the hunter, boasted to goddess Artemis and her mother, Leto, that he would kill every animal on the earth. Although Artemis was known to be a hunter herself she offered protection to all creatures. Artemis and her mother Leto sent a scorpion to deal with Orion. The pair battled and the scorpion killed Orion. So animal killers and abusers, beware!
The contest caught the attention of the king of the gods Zeus, who later raised the scorpion to heaven and afterwards, at the request of Artemis, did the same for Orion to serve as a reminder for mortals to curb their excessive pride. The two constellations lie opposite each other in the sky, and Orion is said to be fleeing from the scorpion as it sets just as Scorpius rises.
Chinese see Antares as the heart of the Azure Dragon.
Guardian Angel: Archangel Michael - Guardian of the South and Element of Fire. Chief of the Archangels, Angel of Justice, Strength and Protection.
Sidereal (Vedic) Astrology (observable and measurable) places the Scorpio from 16 November until 16 December. Scorpius corresponds to the nakshatras Anuradha (crown), Jyeshtha (heart), and part of Mula (tail).
Tropical Astrology (imaginary) places it between 23 October and 21 November.
The Sun rises through Scorpio for just one week, from 23 November – 30 November. This area covers the crown of the Scorpio. The heart and tail of Scorpio now falls under Ophiuchus (1 - 17 December) that has stepped into Scorpio's place on the ecliptic as the heart and tail of Scorpio has dropped way below the ecliptic. People who thought that they were Sagittarius (Western Astrology - imaginary and non-observable) are actually Ophiuchus (heart of the Scorpio), the serpent wrestler also known as Serpentarius.
