The star Sirius is said to be the most important star in our galaxy. It resides near 14 degrees of Cancer, very close to where Mars went stationary retrograde. That would imply that we stand on the threshold of receiving the awesome galactic wisdom residing in this star, and that we've reached a point where we can act differently than we have before now on the basis of that wisdom. So let's find out more about this powerful influence, the "Sun of our Sun."
It is said to be one of the "Dog Stars," with a brightness of the first magnitude. It is a brilliant white and yellow star, also known as "Orion's big dog." It is said to confer honor, renown, faithfulness, devotion, passion, and is associated with guardians, custodians, curators, and high government office.
The great astrologer Vivian Robson noted it had associations with Osiris and Thoth, and "formed the basis of the Sothic period of chronology." She says the Chinese knew it as Tseen Lang, "the Heavenly Wolf," though they thought it portended thievery, and Ptolemy thought its nature to be a combo of Mars and Jupiter, while another ancient included a Lunar influence as well.
It is said to correspond with the cetaceans, which we know as the whales and dolphins. These are said to be the celestial messengers from Sirius at the dawn of human existence, our friends and allies as we evolve on Earth. Both these species are at least as intelligent as humanity, and probably much more evolved, given our present global barbaric tendencies. Theirs is a wisdom of community, global awareness, and singing songs while playing in their own unique way.
Then there's what we know from Alice A Bailey and her Tibetan Master, an Initiate of the 5th circle we know as "D.K." We are told in "Initiation Human and Solar" that the "greater Lodge" of supremely higher levels of consciousness exist on Sirius. We read that it is a very potent cosmic influence on our Earth, the Sun of our Sun through which "the energy of thought, or mind force, in its totality, reaches the solar system from a distant cosmic center via Sirius.
Sirius acts as the transmitter, or the focalizing center, whence emanate those influences which produce self-consciousness in man." We are told it is the source of our planetary life on Earth, and that its energy moves through Earth's spiritual hierarchy transmitting "the principle of buddhi, of cosmic love. This, in a mysterious way, is the principle found at the heart of every atom."
Furthermore, the solar Logos uses pure electrical force from Sirius given by the Lord of the Lords of Karma to create conditions for very advanced Initiates to move into higher levels of awareness. Evidently Sirius is the home of a "greater Brotherhood" of Lodges of very high spiritual beings we know as planetary intelligences. We also read that its influence wasn't recognized "until Christ came and revealed the love of God to humanity. He is the expression, par excellence, of a Sirian initiation." It apparently is also where many of Earth's advanced Initiates will eventually go.
We also find that Sirius is the source of the impulse toward freedom that all beings on Earth experience. This is no small thing, as freedom is one of our Divine characteristics that keeps us evolving according to our own sense of the higher Way. As it is written in "The Rays and the Initiations,"
This principle of freedom is a leavening energy which can permeate substance in a unique manner; this divine principle represents an aspect of the influence which Sirius exerts on our solar system and particularly on our planet. This principle of freedom is one of the attributes of Deity (like will, love, and mind) of which humanity knows as yet little. The freedom for which men fight is one of the lowest aspects of this cosmic freedom, which is related to certain great evolutionary developments that enable the life or spirit aspect to free itself from the impact, the contact and the influence of substance.
There's much more in that volume and other works of the Tibetan, but some of it is fairly abstract. Boiling it down to soup, it would seem a new wave of freedom will spread across humanity, which of course will inspire some to greater realizations and others to react to that freedom in ways that are retrograde. Internalize your sense of what has or is freeing you for greater things to come.
That it went stationary retrograde in a grand water trine should make things perfectly clear by March-April 2008 exactly what has been freed for greater expression through what feelings have been allowed to flow between now and then. This retrograde portends some very important developments in the near future that will free humanity from the chains of obsolete thinking and living. Aum Namah Shivaya!
