They say when you see a shooting star that you should make a wish. I always make wishes when I see one. I believe that just the power of positive thought can change your life. I am one of those that believe in the secret and I practice the secret. Be positive and go after the things you want out of life.
All it means is you are very lucky - nothing more. (right time at the place) A shooting star is an old fashioned word for a meteoroid burning up in our atmosphere. They don't have magical powers and don't have luck giving properties!
