An experience of a lifetime.

Science discovered that traces of life's beginnings are found in stardust. They say that the same stardust in the universe is also found inside our lungs.

Years ago, 40,000 tons of cosmic dust fell on Earth. Knowing that our bodies include stardust supports the belief that we are interconnected with the universe, the sky, and its energy shifts.

Ancient astrologers studied these mysteries long before science caught up with their own theories of reality and planetary influences on human beings.

And although reading a horoscope can't tell everything about your day, there are certain truths to zodiac signs personality traits. There's no denying that each sign responds differently to specific changes that take place in our world.

When water rises in the ocean, a Pisces feels soulful. But an Aries, whose element is Fire, feels drained. When the moon is full, another sign may have the best sleep of their life. But an Earth sign might stay up all night feeling slightly neurotic.

The same can be said when larger, more complicated and strange forces not only invite an energy shift into the hemisphere but collides with other formed beings in the sky.

Perhaps even dropping a little more dust on our bodies. Cosmic dust can changes us, and the zodiac gives a guide as to how.

When 2017 is said and done, there will have been a total of 12 meteor showers that have passed planet earth.

Some of these meteors and meteoroids are directly from Halley's Comet — one of the greatest comets of all time.

If the idea of a meteor being close enough to the earth that you could actually see it frightens you, it should.

It's literally one of the most awe-inspiring experiences you can ever have. 

I caught my first meteor shower by accident. I was living in Miami and in college. It was late, so I went outside for a breath of fresh air. I looked up a the sky and it seemed like the sky was falling. I could see actual rocks far into the heavens flying through the sky. Followed by a flash, and then the shape disappeared. This happened 20 times in a row. 

I ran back into the house and woke up my two boys. For hours, we watched in fear and admiration huge brown rocks and gray matter fly through the sky that seemed like would fall on us. Then, some would disappear out of sight followed by little flashes of light. 

Watching shooting stars and a meteor shower turned me into life-long stargazer.

Although not all experiences are equal, if you are in the right location at the right time, you do not want to miss this experience.

You certainly want to know what to expect and how this will affect your zodiac sign this month, and possibly for the rest of this year. 

1. Out of the 12 meteor showers left to see, there are 6 remaining and 2 are taking place this month starting on October 2nd.

2. Draconid Meteor Shower peaks on October 7th - 8th, 2017 and only comes once every 8 years. 

The Draconids are also called "Giacobinids" and appear as the head of Draco the Dragon is viewable in the northern sky. 

3. Draco the Dragon appears in the sky, too.

To see the Draconids look for the star constellation, Draco the Dragon's head. You have to turn out early for this one. The best time to watch is after sundown but before midnight.

Draco is one of the 28 constellations discovered by Ptolemy. He spans from the sign of Aries to Sagittarius and is made up of 18 stars.

He's not a friendly character. He's associated with thought processes, and you could even say a bit of bad luck.

In Tarot, he is represented by the 13th card, Death. The Earth literally wobbles when he shows up on the scene. The Draconids get their name from the Draco because of their mutual presence in the sky.

Draconids take approximately 6.6 years to travel around the Sun and are formed when Earth passes through cosmic dust left by a comet called 21 P/Giacobini-Zinner.

Rumor has it that sometimes Draco spews Draconids from his mouth, but most of the time, this shower is considered less eventful than the Orionid shower. 

4. The Orionid Meteor Shower takes place early in the morning on October 21st, 2017 and ends November 7th, 2017.

This year, the sky will be extra dark so the shower should be easier to see in pre-dawn hours. Traveling at speeds of 148,000 mph are a by-product of Comet Halleys dust particles is one of the higher producing meteor showers sometimes showing 10-20 meteors in a single hour.

The debris we see as meteors come from Comet Halley, but seem to be coming from Orion's club, hence how they earned their name.

Taurus and Gemini's star constellations will be visible while watching the comet show as will Jupiter. Jupiter and Venus will be positioned with the Dog Star.

The meteors may even look like they are launching through the center of the constellations. 

Below are what each of the zodiac signs can expect from October's meteor season and how to survive without messing up your life.
