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

4 Aug



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, with the BC wildfires, and the smoke cloud also blanketing the BC Westcoast.
Seems like they started with the CAP – CAN FULL MOON on July 8 that was aligned with SIRIUS on the CANCER side, and VEGA on the CAP side.

The Rising of SIRIUS is also associated with the AQ – LEO Full Moon which will be on AUG 7 – a Partial Lunar Eclipse which opens the Eclipse ‘Gate’ to the Total Solar Eclipse on AUG 21! It’s all linked this year.

I saw SIRIUS through a friend’s telescope last Winter, and felt immediately connected to the bright blue 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, and the fierce, record breaking BC wildfires.



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 awaits you and your dog(!) again this year, at this fine occasion: Welcome to * You and Your Star-Dog @ Sirius Rising on TUE 08 / 08 THU see the FB event.


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…

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.

ASTRO~EXPERIENCES, via Courses. Workshops, and Embodied Astrology:

Our experiential and embodied Astrology groups have over time (the 13 years I’ve been facilitating workshops and classes) become quite potent and catalytic.
In a world of online offers, our small, intimate Astro hubs (6 – 10 participants) are a treasured way of being personally seen and involved – more commitment, a personal sense of community, and deeper effects.
Come join us, if deep synergy in a circle speaks to you!

This is to empowered and liberating ways of working with the ancient and timeless gift of Astrology!




* SUN – SIRIUS Days!

5 Jul

Did you know that from Earth perspective early July every year the SUN in mid CANCER lines up with SIRIUS, the beautiful bright ‘Dog Star’?
Would be exact TODAY, July 5!
Interesting that Canada, the U.S., and France all celebrate their ‘birthdays’ nowadays… July 1, 4, and 14.
Liberation is an important theme with SIRIUS.
Wishing us all Sirian downloads for deep liberation from old conditionings and restrictions that don’t serve us anymore!

SIRIUS is such a majestic blue / multicoloured star… some of us had the privilege to view SIRIUS via my friend Stephen’s telescope, in January, when it was visible in the night sky.





Presently, SIRIUS is ‘behind the SUN / which Ancient Egyptians considered the ’70 days in the Underworld’.
SIRIUS rises again in the morning before Sunrise, calculated for 08 / 08 – the time of the Egyptian New Year, with the flooding of the Nile.
We’re also in the ‘Dog Days of Summer’ between now and then…

Here are more SIRIUS stories, a description of the astrological influence of SIRIUS, and themes of conjunction between SIRIUS (in mid CANCER) with SUN, MOON, and Planets – check it out: Do you have anything in your birth chart in mid CANCER? That’d be close to SIRIUS.


Blessings for the SIRIUS Initiation into Liberation!

(excellent descriptions at http://www.crystalinks.com/sirius.html and http://www.souledout.org/nightsky/dogdays/dogdays.htmlis now getting ready to rise again before the Sun – the ‘Heliacal Rising’ (Helios = Sun in Greek), this year on AUG 8 – while hot central Leo Days (‘Dog Days of Summer’) are here, in the Northern Hemisphere.

When Sirius the brightest star in the night sky re-appears before the Sun, it is the time for a ‘Spiritual Sun’, or Heart of our physical Sun to be born. We are invited to align with this energy, in integration of the recent AQ – LEO Full Moon.

Ancient EGYPT honoured the yearly reappearance of SIRIUS which announced the flooding of the Nile as the Goddess ISIS, heavenly mother and giver of life-through-death. http://www.crystalinks.com/isis.html
