Meteor Shower Spread

Meteor Shower Spread

On This Day

The meteor shower is named after Perseus, the Greek hero best known for decapitating the fearsome, snake-haired Medusa. Some Catholics refer to the Perseids as the “tears of St. Lawrence” due to the fact that August 10 is the date of this saint’s martyrdom.

Today marks the approximate peak of the Perseid meteor shower. Observable for over 2,000 years, it is visible through the Northern Hemisphere. It produces up to sixty meteors an hour when viewed at its optimal point in the wee hours of the morning.

Summation of Spread

The Eight of Wands race across the sky like shooting stars of energetic, volcanic nature. Rather than burning up in the atmosphere, the Eight of Wands brings its energy toward the ground. Where shall the wands land, and will you be the one to direct them?

Who was the first person to wish upon a star? During the Perseids shower it looks as if the stars are answering back. This spread is inspired by the meteor showers of summer.

Assuming a meteor shower offers celestial messages, the Meteor Shower Spread cards are cast in the shape of a shooting star.
