[ [ Meteor Shower ] ]
The Perseid Meteor Shower is an ongoing cosmic event that will last until mid-August. The peak mornings to view the meteor shower will be August 11, 12, and 13.
Here is a complete guide on how to spot the meteor shower from Earthsky.org !
Time and Date also has an Interactive Meteor Shower Sky Map to help you find the location of the radiant point (although this information is just for fun- the meteors will be all over the sky, not just at the radiant point!) for the meteor shower and a bit more information about how to spot it
A note that this meteor shower is different from the Delta Aquariids Meteor Shower (currently ongoing) .
[ [ Freebie Friday ] ]

[ [ Moon Phase: First Quarter Moon ] ]
Depending on your location, you will be blessed by the light of this moon phase on Sunday, July 15th .
The Moon Magick Guide to First Quarter Moon Magick on Spells8 says the following about this special moon phase:
This is an excellent time to take action regarding your deepest wishes and to address your biggest blockages. It is a great time for growth and self-healing . As a continuation of the previous phase, the energies present at this time can help you feel more lucid and aware of how your intuition and second nature are developing.
Looking for ideas for spells and rituals specific to the First Quarter Moon? The Waxing Moon Spell Page has a lot of information including history, meanings, and a collection of spells and rituals that work in harmony with this moon phase
You can find current moon information for your home as well as complementary spells and rituals to draw on its energy on the Spells8 Lunar Spell Page
