The Sirius-New Years Connection
I’ve often written in this newsletter that the Gregorian Calendar is essentially a “banking“calendar, established for commerce and the paying of bills. I’ve often advocated our need to bring other calender-awarenesses into our culture, such as the seasonal calendar (the Mayans called it the Haab) which recognizes Solstices and Equinoxes and other seasonal points within the year; and also a more sacred calendar such as the Tzolkin. But this is one of those times when the Gregorian Calendar is right on the mark! Deeply embedded in our cultural celebrations of “ringing out the old and ringing in the new” is a celestial fact that indeed showers us with the blessings of a new beginning.
Around mid-night local time on New Year’s Eve the triple star Sirius (the brightest fixed star in our sky) is found directly overhead on the mid-heaven infusing the earth with its starry energy. Because Sirius is the brightest star in our sky, in antiquity it was known as The Shining One or The Scorcher. The Egyptians called Sirius Isis and built their calendar around the rising and setting of this magnificent star. In addition, the Egyptians felt that Sirius could bringimmortality to humans.
Freya Owlsdottir shares this info about Sirius: “The Sirius system is directly “upstream” of our solar system within the galactic arm of our Milky Way Galaxy. Because of this, we now know that the polarized energies of Sirius do indeed wash over us. By coming directly towards us, Sirius creates an axis of rotation with Earth relative to the stellar background. Because of this, of all the stars in the sky, only the annual heliacal rising (meaning its visible rising just before the Sun) of Sirius exactly matches the length of our solar year, 365.25 days.
Even today, unbeknownst to most of the people of the world, ourNew Years Eve celebration is a celebration of Sirius’ presence directly overhead atmidnight. Around January 1st, this midnight alignment marks the moment when the energies of Sirius most closely touch our lives in their most singular purity. Without knowing the hidden reason, we mark this midnight moment by jumping for joy as the rush of this vital connection surges through us.
To be in conscious attendance of Sirius’s positional relationship in the midheaven at midnight enables us to receive the empowerment of the Spirit of Sirius directly into our lives.
Sirius is a double or binary star, (the Dogon peoples of Africa have maintained for centuries the existence of not one, but two companions of Sirius, even long before astronomers were able to telescopically perceive the now-acknowledged companion known as Sirius B.) This companion to Sirius is a very dense and small star that, nonetheless, has immense impact on the rotational pattern of Sirius.
In their dual gravitational pull upon one another, Sirius and its companion form a beautiful spiral dance. As they rotate relative to their respective gravitational fields, Sirius and Sirius B are observedto twist around each other in a helix-like spiral that has, over the course of its 50 year cycle, the expansive/contractive design of the Golden Proportion. The Golden Proportion is a geometric pattern that is evident in all natural forms, from the seed-heads of a sunflower to the relative proportions of our own bodies and the motions of hurricanes.
Sirius imprints upon us a realignment of our own vibrational patterns, touched by the perfection of the Golden Proportion. If we have gone astray from our original DNA blueprint of balance and harmony - for instance through toxic food, air, thoughts etc. - the Sirian influence reestablishes balance and harmony within our Body/Mind/Soul. Out with the old, in with the new!” – Freya Owlsdottir
It is from this field that we create physical form through the use of imagination and visualization. When you see something as perfect, you are accessing these fields to then activate what you see into physical form.
So, as the ball drops over Times Square, so does a blast of energy from Sirius, “The Shining One,” for the creation of perfect and beautiful expressions on Earth. Allow Sirius-magic to infuse your new-beginning visualizations into form.
My dear friends, I send you many Sirius Blessings on this New Year’s Eve 2012 into 2013. To paraphrase “The Great Invocation“: May Light and Love and Power restore the perfect plan on Earth.
