Shooting Stars

Shooting Stars

I really appreciate your blog man and I was wondering if you could help me out. I’ve always been told that there is no such thing as coincidences and I’ve stuck to believing that. I was with this girl laying out on the beach and I’ve never seen a shooting star in my life but that night I happened to see 6, and I’m wondering if I should see that as a sign for something?

Thank you!
I don’t believe in coincidence, for everything a reason <3

Shooting Stars symbolize Good Luck,  A change or big event is coming towards your life, it can also be a symbol of endings. Shooting stars are actually one of the most diverse omens we have throughout our history. There was also the Perseid Meteor Shower not that long ago, i believe early August? So given what time you viewed the Shooting star if it was in early august it was probably around the time of the Perseid Meteor shower.

“Shooting star symbolizes a brief fleeting moment in ones life just like the brief wonder of seeing a shooting star race across the night sky. They can also be a symbol of reaching ones ultimate destiny.

Shooting stars, asteroids, and the movement of the heavenly bodies in the night sky have always fascinated to humans. Some cultures have always had strong beliefs and superstitions in the meaning of shooting stars. Traditionally shooting stars also meant a new birth and changes in ones life and also a wish for a better life.

In old Greece falling stars were believed to be rising or falling human souls. Aristophanes spoke of “souls of poor people, drunkenly walking home after they had dinner at a rich star”. According to Jewish and Christian tradition fallen stars reflect fallen angels and demons

Nowadays, in certain parts of Asia people believe a falling star is a bad omen: the “tears from the moon about the lost sunbride” would predict war, death or demise of a close person. According to more common belief though, it’s a good omen, cause when one makes a wish when one sees a falling star, the wish will come true.

In Europe at the time when the Greek astronomer Ptolemy’s view of the cosmos as a universe of interlocking spheres became the orthodoxy, there was a widely accepted and very poetic explanation for “falling stars” which was entirely consistent with other deeply held beliefs of the time.

It was thought that the gods, overwhelmed with curiosity, would sometimes look at the earth from between the spheres, and that in that instant a star or two might slip through the gap and become visible as a falling or shooting star. Since the gods were clearly peering down at that very moment, it was considered an excellent opportunity to voice one’s wishes with the guarantee that the gods would hear them. “

Considering you saw 6 of them, 6 is the number of harmony or equilibrium. It symbolizes union of polarity. Six is also the symbol of luck, love, the divine merkaba, the six-pointed star. It’s also the number of the Third eye, the sixth sense.

In general this seems to me like a very positive sign coming into your life. Big change, luck, union of polarity. I see it as a sign that good things are coming towards you 🙂

hope this helps!

love <3

    I saw two shooting/falling stars last night for the first time in my life. I made a wish, but more than anything I was fascinated by it. What does it mean that I saw only two stars? Do numbers matter?

      How beautiful! 2 usually stands for duality, diversity or balance such as yin/yang 2 = 1. It could possibly connect to a sign of change within your life that is either going to be balanced or needs balance. I’m sure your wish will come true ☺

    I was with a new friend and he and I were talking to get to know one another. We embraced and we saw at least 20 shooting stars that night. I can remember feeling safe, adored and such an overwhelming sense of peace. It was an amazing night. I have been hoping to meet the man I will marry soon. That night was so beautiful and it reassured me that I will be in love and its worth the wait. There was something special about our encounter, even the stars knew it.

    I seen 3 driving on the way home from Colorado! It was so fascinating, even tho its not my first time, Ive never seen then come back to back. I was astonished, what would it mean for 3 stars?

      ooh if it was recent it was probably a part of the perseid meteor shower that just happened. The power of Three! 3 symbolizes a moving forward of energy, overcoming duality, expression, manifestation and synthesis. Three is the first number to which the meaning “all” was given. It is The Triad, being the number of the whole as it contains the beginning, a middle and an end.

    I was with a guy friend and I randomly asked him if he’s ever seen a shooting star and he said no and gazed up, I gazed up with him at the same time as he did and we both saw our first shooting star together it was only one shooting star. I was wondering what this means?

    Hello Tonight I was going to the park with my brother as we got out of the car I was looking up at the sky and seen a shooting star. He however wasn’t starring up and missed it. I felt like It was so close to us bright, big and beautiful. I am still shocked that I got to witnesses such a beautiful phenomenon. Since it was one shooting star what would that mean? We usually go to the park at 9pm to workout and run around.

    I was on my way to the store yesterday and I was praying wen I looked up to the sky I saw a shooting star. I never ever seen one in the daytime so can u please tell me what this means?

    I have know seen 49 shooting stars so far and each one determined a new movement in my life. I record the time, date and location when I see a shooting star.My question is what clarity can I get from these significant moment of seeing a shooting star?

  8. Eddie Sapp 6 years ago

    What does it mean when you see a falling star or shooting star every time you go outside at night and your by yourself now this does not happen all the time but i have counted over 25 sightings of a falling or shooting star.

  9. Cesar 6 years ago

    I have only seen one shooting star in my life. But lately I can be in my car or outside and just glance at the sky and in my head I see one. Idk what it stands for… FYI it’s happened a couple of times do you know what it stands for?

    Hy Ash.

    One day at night, I was with a guy I was crushing on, he was also crushing on me but we were not dating. That night as we were together, we were cuddling, kissing and talking outside, as we were doing so, a huge and long shooting star passed by, Well I saw it and I never showed him it because I was just nervous at the time I guess. I never told him what happened that night we first kissed, but as time goes on, we chatted, flirted on daily basis but we never went on a real date. We are so common in most things, like 75% of things, we connect very well. I then found out he had a girlfriend, I kinda stepped back because I felt like I was gonna be hurt, so the only way to protect myself from being hurt was to distance myself, which it was bittersweet, but not long ago after I found out, he broke up with his girlfriend like 2 months after we kissed, that when I decided to give him a chance, but then I had already moved out of the city, so we were basically in long-distance relationship, but we always keep in touch, chatting though. After 3 months of me and him dating, his ex-girlfriend took him back, they got back together again, but he wasn’t aware of all the information I knew and I never bothered to ask him, I kept quiet but than they broke up again. However, after the second break up, we are not on speaking terms, because of the distance, he never calls and I never called.

    I like to believe that I truly love him, I mean I have never laid my eyes on any the guys despite him.

    I just want to know, insight of all this is it possible that he might be the one?

    Hey one night I got a phone call that my best friend had been shot and was going into emergency surgery and during that time I was driving out of town.All I could do was pray that everything went good from the surgery about two hours later I saw 3 shooting stars all back to back.i know what I thought it meant but didn’t want it to mean what I thought 2 hrs after that I got a phone call that he didn’t make it through surgery do u think that was a sign related to him passing away?i saw them a few more times within days afterwards .and I rarely ever see shooting stars .

    I believe I notice synchronocities (I don’t think I spelled that right :/)a little more than the average person. I’m very spiritual; raised a Roman Catholic but I have not practiced since I was a teenager. I consider myself an open minded skeptic and I do not look for “messages from beyond” …I have a rule, if it happens at least 3x someone or something is trying to get my attention. I’ve learned never to ignore spirit. You’ll lose every time. That being said I’ve seen a total of 3 shooting stars in a year and a half. I live near Philadelphia, so the odds of seeing shooting stars is not in my favor due to the cities urban lighting. The first sighting was approximately 11pm on 8/31/15 while walking my dog after a huge blowout with my best friend that actually ended our friendship. I was very emotionally charged and feeling very alone when I saw it. The second was on vacation in Jamaica in June of 2016. I wasn’t doing anything significant that evening, just enjoying the water on a beautiful night, however it was my first time ever traveling outside the country. I’m not sure if that was the connection. And the third was most recently this past Christmas night heading home after a very long day with family. I’m not sure what significance to attach to the third sighting. All I can think of is maybe it is related to me beginning nursing school at the start of the new year? I’d love to know your thoughts?

    I watched a film the other week based on a true story a girl fell into a hollow tree an she said god healed her of her illnesses so after the film I went the shop to get so.e milk an I was thinking about god being real so I asked in my head while I was walking if you are up there an u can hear me can u give me a sign so I stopped walking looked directly in front often at the sky and no more than three to five seconds a huge shooting star an I mean huge you could see the wings on it straight down the middle of my sight… I am not a fan on coincidence an I asked a question and I got a prompt answer ?…. i also am very fond of star gazing I’ve spent100’s if not 1000’s of hours looking and only seen a small hand full I could look for months without seeing one but none was like the one I saw the other week…. so wot are the odds of just looking into the sky for 5 seconds and seeing one but not seeing it found me straight down over my head could not miss it….. can u put it down to coincidence I guess it’s what he gave us free will choose to think it’s was just random or have some Faith ….. I was in a bad place when I had this experience and after I felt better knowing everything is going to be OK In The end… deep down I don’t need convincing anymore( eg: if you ask a sport or ghost ect to knock the door if they are there if that door knocks afterwards you have had your answer lol ) don’t even know y I’m sharing my experience

      This just happened to me tonight honestly. I was sitting on my bench and I was talking to god and I said I want one of these 4 events to happen. Then I said No I NEED one of these 4 events to happen to me because im in a bad and dark place. I put my hand up and said Number one and I said “First” and bam. a Shooting star and I got chills. I knew he was watching and I knew he gave me a shooting star because he told me deep down that I need to pick one of those 4 things to happen. and it will happen and I will make it happen. So I can relate to that.

    What if you’ve just met someone and felt truly excited. And within that excitement you ask for a sign as you look up at the night sky and in that instance and place of focus a shooting star flashes across? This happened not so long ago. I couldn’t quite believe it happened and while feeling sad the next night i asked again and again i saw a shooting star. 2 out of 2 in 2 quick instances. It made me feel as if there was something out there greater than I know looking out for myself. I’m just interested in thoughts on this?

    would you be able to help me decipher this. Today I saw a butterfly while driving, something I am new too. I had seen the same species of butterfly, yellow swallowtail while driving a few days prior. This evening my dog was acting funny wanting to go outside to eat grass which is different. So while waiting with her outside at 3am I saw for the first time in my life a falling star streak down. i was in awe, and a few minutes later I saw what looked like a white orb fall in a different direction and location. they both had different appearances. It was strange to see these things I have rarely or never seen. It has to mean something right?

    • Eve 5 years ago

      2 butterfly sightings and 2 shooting stars in one week or 1 butterfly sighting and 2 shooting stars in one day depending how you want to look at it

    I wanted to share my experience with the greatest shooting star i’ve ever seen. First of all, it didn’t dissipate in fact in swooped out into the sky and within seconds it was directly above me about power line level. While it was closest it looked like two bright orange fireballs that were shaking with enormous amounts energy. As they moved to the right, the two fire balls morphed into 4 white orbs, one on top of another vertically but in the shape of a C, they continued moving to the right until they flipped horizontally and started moving up and down in an synchronized manner (like white doves). They then, finally dissipated in thin air. Thoughts?

    I have wierd encounters with shooting stars… I’m 21 years old and when I got with my first boyfriend when I was 18 I saw a shooting star right in front of me that night. And then when we broke up a year later I saw a shooting star that same exact night again directly in front of me. and then a year later I met my current boyfriend who I am with right now. When he asked me to be his girlfriend I saw a shooting star that exact night also… but the other night I was driving home form his house I saw a shooting star right in front of me.. soo does this mean theirs going to be an end ?? I’m really big on believing this kind of stuff soooo any comments WILL help I haven’t told anyone about this.. so tell me what you think?

    Just stumbled upon this page and it is really interesting reading like minds… I saw one tonight… very bright and close like it had wings, just like a little ferry… I was laying down faced up to the sky when it moved across my head and back it went again. Still confused what it means… it was suppose to shoot across, but it stopped at my sighting of it and went back…

    My husband passed away in January and 3 nights in a row i saw a shooting star over the same house. I was sitting out back relaxing and talking to him. And this 3rd night of seeing them brought me to tears. I trying to figure out if there is a message for me.

      Absolutely, if you believe it was him, then it certainly was. Shooting stars a symbol of change and a big mental shift in our life. I imagine he was winking at you as you were talking to him. Follow your heart with this ♥

    Last night about 9 central time, I saw 2 shooting stars forming an X in the sky, lower to horizon. Have never seen or heard of this before. What does this mean?

    I have a question for you for years I have been able to tell when friends or family are going through something by this feeling that comes over me they could be states away yet I can feel this energy come over me and I’m always right. When my grandfather passed away I woke up from deep sleep with chest pain and arm pain come to find out moments later my brother called to tell me they found my grandfather passed away from stroke he was in pa I was in fl. I can tell when my friends are going through something without them even telling me anything I actually say to them why haven’t you ate in 3 days etc is it really possible to be that connected to people?
