* SIRIUS is RISING on 08 / 08 * REbirth of the Spiritual SUN!

8 Aug



Two Winters ago, I saw SIRIUS through a friend’s telescope, and felt immediately connected to the bright blue star.

On 08 / 08, SIRIUS a.k.a. The Dog Star (brightest star in the Dog constellation), a.k.a. The Scorcher, will rise again, before the SUN!
Hot Dog Days of SUMMER are on NOW, and we’ve certainly had an ‘extra dose’ of scorching heat lately, with wildfires starting.


Synchronistically with SIRIUS Rising, today 08 / 08 is also the half-way point of MERCURY retro, a.k.a. ‘Point of Enlightening Insight’ where MERCURY retro steps behind the SUN.
Thus far, with MERCURY ahead of the SUN, the mind (MERCURY) could have easily run the show.

Hardly any astrologers talk about this:
Purpose of each MERCURY retro phase is to ‘lasso’ the monkey mind a.k.a. MERCURY in, and let Spirit, Consciousness, and the Heart (represented by the SUN) direct again, and the mind be in its service.
This half-way point with the MERCURY – SUN conjunction is also a ‘New Mercury’ (like New Moon) – a new way of communicating with Love (LEO), starting from the inside-out.



Sirius Dog Star


SIRIUS the ‘Dog Star’ is the brightest star in the constellation Canis Major, ‘the Dog’ and in fact brightest star in the night sky(!)

Please find an excellent description here and here.

SIRIUS now RISING again before the SUN is called the ‘Heliacal Rising’ (Helios = SUN in Greek), this year on 08 / 08 (which is also the 08 / 08 ‘Lion’s Gate’ – the Centre of the fixed signs, TAU, LEO, SCO, and AQ, are Gates of Power)…
…while hot LEO Days (‘DOG DAYS of Summer’) are here, in the Northern Hemisphere.



Walk with your Cat or / and Dog friend, (not only) under the conjunction of the SUN in LEO the Lion, with SIRIUS the Dog Star! 🙂


A special treat and invitation awaits you and your dog(!) again this year, at this fine occasion: 
Welcome to * You and Your Star-Dog @ Sirius Rising on 08 / 08 THU see the FB event.
Last minute registration (well, until 1 pm) welcome!

When SIRIUS the brightest star in the night sky re-appears before the SUN at dawn it’s the time for the ‘Spiritual SUN’, or Heart of our physical SUN to be REborn.

Well, always a good time to RE-connect with the Spiritual SUN…

Ancient Egypt honoured the yearly reappearance of SIRIUS which announced the flooding of the Nile and the Goddess Isis, heavenly wife of Osiris, and Mother of Horus.

Blessings for the SIRIUS Initiation to our Spiritual SUN!

Serving you with astrological guidance and perspective, pointing you to YOUR INNER ‘COSMIC COMPASS’.

I’d love to inspire you to be in alignment with, and smoothly ‘ride’, those ‘auspicious’ or ‘challenging’ waves of cosmic energies that present themselves at a given time, and, similar to climate and weather, affect our human energy field.

Because it leads to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel connected with the bigger evolution.
Ultimately, you can dwell in a witnessing place in the ‘HUB OF THE WHEEL’ where you are less and less affected, more and more liberated, and self-realized.

The birth chart is an incarnational map to identify your ‘original imprint’and themes that are showing up as ‘issues’ in your life.
I help you see how you don’t need to be unconsciously identified WITH them, and they don’t have to run your life.

I’m always happy to welcome you as a client who is not seeking a ‘reading’ from me (“What’s going to happen TO me?”, “What am I supposed to do?”), but to be supported in accessing your own wisdom source, especially in times of a challenging transitions, stuckness, transformational crisis, or for perspective at a crossroad, dilemma, or empowered choices.

AUGUST is Client Appreciation Month, at the occasion of the 18th anniversary of my Astrology practice!
Come on over, or let’s meet online, for a substantially discounted (11% – 22% – 33%, depending on how long you’ve been my client) Astro session. And let your friends know!
