Currently three meteor showers grace our celestial sphere:
Perseids, Alpha Capricomids and Delta Aquarriids.
During this time it is important to bear in mind that sometimes we have to sacrifice or let go of something in order to gain something better. Remember to be your own saviour and hero!
When you wish upon a star, makes no difference who you are, anything your heart desires will come to you (Disney Movie Song).
The Perseids Meteor Showers usually starts mid-July and peaks between 9 to 14 August.
The 'Blessings and Light', appear to come from the comet Swift-Tuttle 109 that orbits the sun with a period of 130 years. Comet 1863 is also associated with it. They shower at an hourly rate of 173. Unfortunately, it is not visible in South Africa as it is below the horizon.
Perseus blesses us with: flash of inspiration, flash of insight, flash of money luck, unusual and unexpected happenings, vivid dreams, unusual psychic visions and experiences, unexpected gifts and blessings. He boosts bravery, intelligence, strength, boldness, adventure-lust, love, lust and seduction.
Other effects of Perseids: Because it is above the Pleiades (dagger mansion), you may need to have injections, or have stitches, or dealings with sharp objects. It can also bring a destruction of social anchors, but only to be replaced with new and better things. It can promote a tendency to lie and be dishonest.

Catch a falling star an’ put it in your pocket, Never let it fade away! Catch a falling star an’ put it in your pocket, Save it for a rainy day!

This Galaxy has a strong influence on water, rain and the oceans.
This Asterism also rules the repairing of structures, destruction of enemies, fast news and dealings with loved ones from a distance. Things may speed up a bit. Catching up with work or lost time. Gatherings and dealings with people from the past.
Influence on Society at large: Breaking social norms and freedom of expression. The masses are highlighted and we may see mass movements or organisations coming to the fore now. This energy can be felt as a chaotic influx of energy as a result of past actions.
Excessive rain or incidents with water may occur.
Aquarius rules the masses and society at large. It is the Galaxy of Wellness - Mind, Body and Soul. Events may occur that will affect society and the world.
There will be an increase in social gatherings or social reform at this time. People may want to socialize more but there is also a warning against overindulgence and violence. Diseases and accidents associated with water and cold weather. Body, mind and soul healing is possible during these showers, so now is an excellent time for medical treatment; to see a psychologist / psychic; and visit a temple or spiritual retreat. Dancing, music and entertainment industries will all do well.
On a personal level: the influence will be felt where Aquarius lies in your birth chart. In that particular area of life (eg love life) you will encounter a sudden rush of events. These events will often come as a result of one's past interactions with people. This is a good time to reinvent yourself. Rejuvenate, realign and hold positive regard for yourself and others. It is only when we love and regard ourselves that we can do the same for others. Our greatness can be measured in our ability to be of service to others.
Dancing and Music: therapy for the body, mind and soul. Change your enemy into a dancing partner. Become aware and let go. Open yourself up to mind power and the use of psycho-kinesis. Meditate, fast and pray for spiritual enlightenment so that darkness (ignorance) can be replaced with light (knowledge).
Neptune is the planet of spiritual and psychic enlightenment. Neptune makes mystical experiences come easily. Time to pray, meditate and visualize for your desired outcome. It is during these states that we become who we are meant to be. Neptune is also the planet of 'shapeshifting through self-sacrifice'. That is bring about change through sacrifice such as fasting. Neptune in Aquarius is about serving others and changing perspectives.
Love and Light to All !
