1. Making a Wish

As described initially, it is a very common belief that you should make a wish if you see a shooting star. Keep it secret if you want it to come true, the saying goes.

2. A Confirmation or Sign from from the Universe

A shooting star can be a sign from The Universe or your spirit guides. Maybe you are sitting reflecting and watching the night sky. Just as you were thinking: 

“I hope there is a bigger meaning behind everything I am going through” – Then, a shooting star passes through right where you were looking. Wow! What a coincidence!

Well, maybe it was not that random. 

This is a way the Universe and your spirit guides can let you know: “We hear you and are around you. Yes, there is a bigger meaning with everything you are going through”.

“Asking the Universe for a sign” can also be answered with a shooting star.

3. A Greeting from a Deceased Loved One

Similar to above, deceased loved ones can be sending us a greeting through a shooting star. If you are sitting watching the night sky and thinking about a loved deceased person – and then seeing a shooting star – it is likely be the deceased sending you a hello from the other side.
