                                             Sirius, The God, Dog Star





The effect of Sirian energy and influences generated approximately 13 years ago, the last cycle when Sirius A and B were closest, in 1993 / 1994, have created renewed interest in this most influential heavenly body. The history books and religions of the world have had much to say about the God / Dog star. This article reflects on our ancestor’s beliefs and inspired insights into a great mystery ~ the mystery of the Dog Star and its influences on our little corner of the universe.

Sirius was an object of wonder and veneration to all ancient peoples throughout human history. In the ancient Vedas this star was known as the Chieftain's star; in other Hindu writings, it is referred to as Sukra, the Rain God, or Rain Star. The Dog is also described as "he who awakens the gods of the air, and summons them to their office of bringing the rain."

Sirius was revered as the Nile Star, or Star of Isis, by the ancient Egyptians. Its annual appearance just before dawn at the Summer Solstice, June 21, heralded the coming rise of the Nile, upon which Egyptian agriculture depended. This helical rising is referred to in many temple inscriptions, where the star is known as the Divine Sepat, identified as the soul of Isis. In the temple of Isis-Hathor at Dedendrah, Egypt, appears the inscription, "Her majesty Isis shines into the temple on New Year's Day, and she mingles her light with that of her father on the horizon." The Arabic word Al Shi'ra resembles the Greek, Roman, and Egyptian names suggesting a common origin in Sanskrit, in which the name Surya, the Sun God, simply means the "shining one."

For up to 35 days before, and 35 days after the sun conjuncts it close to July 4, the star Sirius is hidden by the sun’s glare. The ancient Egyptians refused to bury their dead during the 70 days Sirius was hidden from view, because it was believed Sirius was the doorway to the afterlife, and the doorway was thought to be closed during this yearly period.

The dog Sirius is one of the watchmen of the Heavens, fixed in one place at the bridge of the Milky Way, keeping guard over the abyss into incarnation. The Dog Star is a symbol of power, will, and steadfastness of purpose, and exemplifies the One who has succeeded in bridging the lower and higher consciousness.

Located just below the Dog Star there exists a constellation called Argo, the Ship. Astrologically that area in the sky has been known as the river of stars which is a gateway to the ocean of higher consciousness.

The Chinese knew this place as the bridge between heaven and hell, the bridge of the gatherer, the judge. In the higher mind are gathered the results of the experiences of the personality. Between each life the soul judges its past progress, and the conditions needed to aid its future growth. As long as it is attached to desire, sensation, and needs experiences, it takes a body. The soul cannot pass over the "bridge" until it is perfected.

The association of Sirius with a celestial dog has been consistent throughout the classical world; even in remote China, the star was identified as a heavenly wolf. In ancient Chaldea (present day Iraq) the star was known as the "Dog Star that Leads," or it was called the "Star of the Dog." In Assyria, it was said to be the "Dog of the Sun." In still older Akkadia, it was named the "Dog Star of the Sun."

In Greek times Aratus referred to Canis Major as the guard-dog of Orion, following on the heels of its master, and standing on its hind legs with Sirius carried in its jaws. Manilius called it the "dog with the blazing face." Canis Major (large dog) seems to cross the sky in pursuit of the hare, represented by the constellation Lepus under Orion's feet. The concept of the mind slaying the real can be seen in the tales which relate the dog as the hunter and killer ~ the hound from hell.

Mythologists such as Eratosthenes said that the constellation represents Laelaps, a dog so swift that no prey could escape it. Laelaps had a long list of owners. One story says it is the dog given by Zeus to Europa, whose son Minos, King of Crete passed it on to Procris, daughter of Cephalus. The dog was presented to Procris along with a javelin that could never miss. Ironically Cephalus accidentally killed her while out hunting with Laelaps.

Cephalus inherited the dog, and took it with him to Thebes, north of Athens, where a vicious fox was ravaging the countryside. The fox was so swift that it was destined never to be caught ~ yet Laelaps the hound was destined to catch whatever it pursued. Off they went, almost faster than the eye could follow, the inescapable dog in pursuit of the uncatchable fox. At one moment the dog would seem to have its prey within grasp, but could only close its jaws on thin air as the fox raced ahead of it again. There could be no resolution of such a paradox, so Zeus turned them both to stone and the dog he placed in the sky without the fox.

There is a remarkable analogy in the Chinese double meaning of the word Spirit and the word Sing (star). The words for soul and essence in Chinese, Shin and Sting, are often interchangeable, as they are in the English language. It is said that the fixed stars, and their domain, contain the essences or souls of matter ... a living soul is a higher essence of matter, and when evolved may also be called a star. These stars and essences become gods. Like souls, stars are regarded as having divine attributes. Stars look down from regions of chaotic, violent, purity onto the world of humanity and influence the energies of humankind invisibly, yet most powerfully.

In June of 1993, as our sun covered Sirius from the Earth's view, the largest flood of the past century occurred. The rivers of the Mississippi, our Nile River, overflowed its banks. This flood continued until the middle of August. When Sirius came out from behind the sun, the flood waters receded, news reports disappeared and the immediate life-threatening crisis subsided. Could this not have been a reflection of the great rivers of energies streaming out from Sirius?

Brilliantly blazing, the star Sirius, brightest beacon in our night sky, beckons with glimpses of grandeur unimaginable. Small wonder this star was granted God / Goddess status amongst many early peoples, including the Egyptians and Sumerians. As modern astronomy unlocks our starry neighbors' secrets, evidence unfolds of the appropriateness of naming this star God.

As we learn more about the nature of our galaxy and especially its magnetic field, we know that streams of energy from stars travel in specific directions, either up or down the galactic arm in which they are embedded. Stars are polarized to other stars, either negative and positive, some receiving energy, some sending it out, all of which travels on the path of the magnetic field lines.

Recent findings reveal we are "downstream" from Sirius in the part of the galactic arm our solar system resides in. If God is the bringer of life (energy) and light, Sirius fits the description — it transmits its energy (highly charged particles) to our entire system via the magnetic field lines. We literally receive energy from Sirius! Did the ancient priests understand this process, thus naming this star "God"?

Now our sun obviously deserves the title of "light bearer" and "life bringer," as no life could exist in the solar system without its sustaining rays. But even the majestic sun pales in comparison to the nearby Sirian star system. We know of two stars there, and perhaps a third, although this remains unverified by science. The largest, the one we see as the brightest star in the heavens, is Sirius A, outshining our sun 10 times over with only the mass of three suns. Sirius B, a white dwarf star invisible to the naked eye, packs almost the entire mass of our sun into a globe only four times as large as the Earth.

White dwarf stars are extremely dense — in fact, Sirius B's surface is 300 times harder than diamonds, while its interior has a density 3000 times that of diamonds. Spinning on its axis about 23 times a minute, it generates huge magnetic fields around it. The two stars dance around each other, constantly exchanging particles. Because of its greater density and magnetic field, Sirius B takes the lion's share, actually vampirizing gases and materials off of its larger host body, Sirius A. Clearly a spectacular star system giving off enormous amounts of energy, our sun appears puny and insignificant in comparison.

Even during normal phases of its life, a tremendous amount of electrical energy is created on Sirius, making it the most energized, "positive" point in our little corner of space. Now this might seem like nothing more than a minor curiosity, but these are not ordinary times. Every 49.9 years, the two stars in the system, Sirius A and B, come as close together as their orbits allow, creating huge magnetic storms between them. As they approach each other, the stars both begin to spin faster as tidal forces become stronger, finally flip-flopping over, actually trading places with each other. Imagine a gigantic electrical turbine engine twisting and spinning, generating billions and billions of volts of electricity. This energy is eventually released to flow down the magnetic field lines to the sun, which transmits it like a lens to all the planets.

What does this mean to life on Earth? The last time it occurred, in 1944, humanity was locked in the greatest conflict ever seen in history, World War II. It happened again, almost 50 years later, in June, 1993.

The Tibetan master Djwhal Khul, author of the Alice Bailey books, taught in the early 1900s about the effects the Sirian system has on our world. When asked what forces were responsible for the world crisis during World War II, he listed as the number one cause "a welling up of magnetic force on Sirius, which produces effects upon our solar system and particularly upon our Earth." He proclaimed the Sirian energies stimulated both the best and the worst in humanity, as depicted in the global conflict. Does this man share the same insights as the ancient priests of Egypt and Sumeria?

The concept of Sirius playing a God-like role to our world is not a new one. The Dogon, the African tribe who have worshipped the invisible star Sirius B for thousands of years, claim visitations from beings of the Sirian system. In their religious dogma, they acknowledge the star as "immensely heavy, invisible, very small, yet extremely powerful." Their understanding of the two stars' orbits coincides exactly with modern astronomical findings, yet was arrived at thousands of years before the equipment needed for such measurements even existed. Their ability to recognize the awesome power of Sirius B, a star that can't even be seen, is truly remarkable. (For further reading on this subject, try Robert Temple's The Sirius Mystery.)

Sirius, considered by the ancient Egyptians to be the most important star in the sky, was astronomically the foundation of their entire religious system. Its celestial movements determined the Egyptian calendar ... Sirius's heliacal rising (when Sirius again rose into visibility after being hidden by the sun's light for 70 days) marked the beginning of the Egyptian year and roughly coincided with the flooding of the Nile — major events marked by feasting and celebration.

In the Sumerian civilization, predating the Egyptians, their epic poem Epic of Gilgamesh describes a dream of Gilgamesh where the hero is drawn irresistibly to a "heavy star" that cannot be lifted despite immense effort. This star descends from heaven to him and is described as having a very "potent essence" and being the "God of heaven." Gilgamesh had, for his companions, 50 oarsmen in the great ship Argo (this constellation bordering Canis Major, where Sirius is found). These elements comprise almost a complete description of Sirius B: a super-heavy gravitationally powerful star made of concentrated super-dense matter (essence) with the number 50 associated with it (describing its orbital period).

Earth Changes





What will occur when our solar system receives more electrical energy than usual? Let's pretend the Earth is a spinning top and see what happens when an electrical current or "wind" moves across it. Naturally, the top speeds up — modern science verifies the speed of the Earth's rotation varies with an all-time high speed of 19 hour days being recorded in rocks 3.5 million years ago. That's alarmingly fast. What happens to a sphere that spins faster? The poles begin to flatten while the middle bulges out at the equator. This action stretches the oceans causing submerged land masses to rise above sea level.

Spinning also causes an extreme wobble of the Earth's axis to occur, with the globe sometimes actually falling over onto its side. Scientists know this has happened to the Earth at least nine times with a tilt of up to 51 degrees (our axial tilt now is at 23 degrees). When this occurs, the land at the equator moves up to where the north pole is now, which explains why Alaska has fossils of alligators. Each time the Earth speeds up, it must slow down again due to the drag from the Moon, bringing about additional geophysical upheaval.

The Tibetan teacher Djwhal Khul comments that certain basic changes in the orientation of the Earth's axis are now taking place ... and periods of upheaval, confusion and cataclysm always precede these great shifts in the planet's axis. He also divulges the planet is in process of taking an initiation, marked by the great event of an axis shift as the Earth literally "repolarises" itself. His prediction of "increased earthquake and volcanic activity during the last decade of the millennium" has been confirmed by world seismologists today. Seismic activity has indeed picked up dramatically in the last three to four years. California scientists state "more earthquakes are now seen in specific areas (L.A., for instance) than ever previously recorded." Many volcanic eruptions have also occurred in this same time period with Mt. St. Helens leading the fray with its 1988 eruption, Mt. Fuji's recent expulsions and of course, Mt. Penatubo's contribution.

Liberation




Sirius is also associated with liberation; in fact, according to ancient teachings, the very concept of freedom itself resides in human consciousness because of the influence of this star system. Interestingly enough, the time each year our sun conjuncts Sirius at 14 degrees Cancer is close to July 4, America's Independence Day! Bastille Day, the French equivalent of Independence Day is July 14, and Canada celebrates its independence from England on July 1; Dominion Day. Venezuela's Independence Day is observed July 5, while Argentina's is celebrated on July 9. And noting, Iraq's Freedom Day, when the new Coalition government took control, happened on June 28, 2004 (two days earlier than it had been announced).

In 1993–1994, as the great conjunction" of Sirius A and B approached, a wave of freedom swept our world culminating in the breakdown of the communist rule in Europe and the liberation of the Russian people from the hard-line Communist party. The Berlin Wall fell as the cold war ended ... these events transpired simultaneously with the magnetic forces building to their highest intensity on Sirius. Is there a connection? Perhaps.

 Conditions on our world may not become as dramatic as previously described; nevertheless, certain major adjustments are likely to occur. Aurorae may be everywhere as the incoming particles bombard our atmosphere. So much additional electrical current may be moving through our own geomagnetic field, touching anything may result in large electrical shocks. Medical research shows increased emotional and mental imbalances during magnetic storms on Earth created by solar flare activity on the sun. (See Robert Becker's Cross Currents.)

Because the sun is likely to speed up its rotational spin as well, its magnetic field will enlarge leading to heightened sunspot activity which in turn creates large solar flares, affecting world weather patterns and probably all phases of life on Earth. We no longer have the protection of the Van Allen belt (part of the Earth's magnetic field) like we used to. For the first time in history, we'll receive Sirian energies without its deflecting mechanism.
 

 

Whatever the future holds for us, it feels safe to venture that great change is imminent for our world and civilization. Those looking for peace and security may have a difficult time finding it, externally, at least. Look within for that unfailing point of balance and stability. It has never felt like a finer time to realign with spirit, soul, higher self ... in that pinnacle of peace, comfort lies.

A new picture of the universe is emerging, one of a vast cosmic interdependence and connectedness. From first cosmos to last electron, the whole universe is a complex of coils within coils, spirals within spirals, magnetic fields within magnetic fields. The stars are interconnected to each other, exchanging particles and gases constantly, all flowing down the magnetic field lines or arteries of the galactic body. Scientists now feel it’s very likely the galaxy's coiled field lines diverge into intergalactic space where they may ultimately be connected to other galaxies. Are these tendrils of energy the nervous system of the galaxy, relaying information from star to star, galaxy to galaxy, on and on? One can only wonder.

                            The U.S. Sun in Cancer is located at a most auspicious place:

                                  it's conjunct Sirius, the brightest star in the heavens.





The Sun in the ninth house indicates the patriarchal religions which have done so much to form the essential American character. Moral authority stemming from Christian values continues to be the hallmark of the United States, even though religious freedom is a guaranteed right.

Of all Thomas Jefferson's great achievements, the one principle he cherished the most and fought the hardest for, was the constitutional separation of church and state. Even so, the United States remains the most fundamentalist nation in the industrialized world.




This connection moves the political astrologer beyond the mundane and into the metaphysical. Sirius has a long, exalted history and plays a prominent role in our planet's greatest empires, the most outstanding of which was ancient Egypt.

Tracking the essential meaning of Sirius takes us back as far as written records go, and then even further to oral traditions, and the possibility of extra-terrestrial visitations. Sirius is, afterall, only eight light years from Earth, and the most likely point of origination for pollinators of human intelligence and civilization, if humanity is some kind of lab experiment.

Whatever the misty origins of human culture, what we do know about Sirius mythology comes from Ancient Egypt's reverence of this star. Thousands of years ago, the Egyptians noticed that the Nile flooded every year when the Sun lined up with Sirius. Since the floodwaters made the entire valley fertile, bringing sustenance, life, and stability, it only seemed natural to bless Sirius for this abundance. The highest ranking figures in Egypt's pantheon of Gods and Goddesses are all associated with Sirius, including Isis, Osiris, Horus, Hathor, Anubis, and Thoth.



In The Egyptian Book of the Dead, Sirius is described as the place where souls go

after they leave the body. Egyptian temples were oriented toward Sirius, and a calendar was created centered on the annual conjunction of the Sun with Sirius. Sirius represented, therefore, the religious concept of renewal as an extrapolation of the annual flooding. This included the idea of death and rebirth, ie. reincarnation, which the greatest pyramids are devoted to. More prosaically, Sirius is also the key to survival, the organization and use of time, and the successful management of civilization. The mythology of Sirius extends across our planet to include the empires of Greece, Persia, Rome, China, and the Mayans.



Sirius, as the astronomical foundation of the entire Egyptian religious system, as

well as many other ancient empires, carries profound metaphysical and esoteric meaning. If there exists an actual guiding intelligence to Earth's evolution, it most certainly can be associated with Sirius. And the United States, with its Sun conjunct Sirius, represents, therefore, the clearest channel for this extra-human agency to manifest its will, whatever that may be. For those who might assume that supernatural guidance is America's fate, it might be wise to recall that all empires have had an expiration date.
