the scene, while Sirius B is the small but very hot and blue white-dwarf
star on the right.
stars revolve around each other every 50 years. White dwarfs are
the leftover remnants of stars similar to our Sun. The Sirius system,
only 8.6 light-years from Earth, is the fifth closest stellar system
known. Sirius B is faint because of its tiny size. Its diameter is
only 7,500 miles (about 12 thousand kilometers), slightly smaller
than the size of our Earth.
system is so close to Earth that most of the familiar constellations
would have nearly the same appearance as in our own sky. In this
rendition, we see in the background the three bright stars that make
up the Summer Triangle: Altair, Deneb, and Vega. Altair is the white
dot above Sirius A; Deneb is the dot to the upper right; and Vega
lies below Sirius B. But there is one unfamiliar addition to the
constellations: our own Sun is the second-magnitude star, shown as
a small dot just below and to the right of Sirius A. [Annotated
is said that all great Avatars and
evolutionary energies originate from Sirius, the brightest star in
our heavens. The influences of Sirius are
focused through Regulus,
the heart of the Lion, found in the constellation of Leo.
According to the works
of Alice Bailey,
the Leo-Sirius connection is key to humanity's spiritual evolution
and the building of a new unifying world
religion. This Sirius
~ Leo Festival offers a great and unique opportunity to become
aware of these cosmic energies.
words from Marianne Williamson capture the essence of the Leo mysteries. "...
We are born to make manifest the Glory of God that is within us.
It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our
own Light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to
do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence
automatically liberates others." When Leo is in its strength and
power this energy knows and remembers its radiant and shining divine
essence shared by all life. Shamanic

stands in a unique relationship to the sun at the heart of
our solar system. The planetary and systemic alignment established
at this Festival is a heart / soul alignment. The heart of
humanity, the heart of the planet ~ the spiritual Hierarchy
~ and the heart of the sun create the channel which extends
to Sirius ... This alignment is evocative of the cosmic principle
of Love and Freedom, both of which flow through Sirius and
Leo into our range of awareness. Lucis

constellation Capricornus opens
the doorway to our divine head center and the immortal life of spirit.
It carries the seeds of death for the material life and awakens one
to a higher spiritual frequency and its potential earthly expression.
Capricornus aligns humanity with a new cycle of effort, initiation and service.
the Eagle, the royal eagle of Jupiter and the great bird of Zeus, is
a messenger from heaven, who leads us to immortality by lifting us
to the realms of higher mind and intuition. Aquila and its brightest
star Altair soar
above the Full Moon symbolizing vision and freedom. In flight Aquila
is known to carry mighty thunderbolts in his talons. These can shake
one to their core, if one resists the divine message. Listen!

Eclipses in the Sign of Leo

Eclipses Affect Our Lives
eclipse lunar cycles mark a time of shifting into a new octave
of experience ... to resynchronize our selves
with the ever-changing cosmic currents supporting our evolutionary
in consciousness. Eclipses tend to bring about endings [Full
Moon/Lunar Eclipses] and new beginnings [New Moon/Solar Eclipses].
influences generally last about six months, until the next eclipse
occurs. Eclipse lunar cycles
are ideal times to set new six-month goals to create personal
change in our lives, not necessarily on the solar or lunar eclipse,
upon the realizations we have throughout the eclipse lunar cycles.
Lunar eclipses ... are about releasing the emotional
bonds within ourselves that glue us to involvements that are less than
we truly want or deserve.
eclipses ... are about shifting octaves in the nature of our self-perception
and self-expression, and addressing issues
keep us from doing
so. They can invite a ... new way of participating
in life. Nick

addition to the emotional nature of a lunar eclipse, it is worth pointing
out that a lunar eclipse supercharges a Full Moon with the unknown,
a void – darkness.
It blocks the Moon's reflection of the Sun's light by the Earth and
stands in the way of our "seeing the light". We are reminded

solar eclipse is always a supercharged New Moon. The light of
the Sun representing
our masculine active, conscious will and vital life-giving force
is joined by the darkness
of the Moon representing our female receptive, subconscious,
instinctive nature. A New Moon eclipse is a personal and global
and challenge to come into a new balance and level of wholeness,
one that can shift our
self-perception and self-expression dramatically.
at a solar eclipse, something deeply essential within us, for
around us, comes to a close. Within each of us (Leo,
the individual, Leo the Group). And something within our country
(the swath of the shadow flows across the U.S.) too. When
something essential falls away, it’s work is completed.
And we are grateful.
with the new moon eclipse there is a ... Sun [illuminating] trine
(harmonizing) Uranus [needed changes] ... The "shadow" of
the eclipse streams across the U.S. A portending of things to
come concerning the changes the U.S. will bring about, in order
to "stand in the Light & lead humanity within & towards
the Light." The changes are already occurring in our country.
Via our president - Who has Sun/Uranus - (bringing out change,
quickly - which is Uranus). He has Mars at 27 Leo - so the
eclipse will highlight his Mars - his action as a president
as it affects
the people of the U.S.
Leo is about the individual coming to recognize themselves as
a personality first, and strengthening that personality (physical
body, emotions, lower mind), recognizing their creative selves,
and reaching up to the Soul.
Leo is the Light of the Soul. Calling forth the Soul of the individual & the
Soul of the United States.
U.S. has North Node (dharma, how we accept, adapt to & step into the present/future), so the Leo new moon
will call the U.S. to step forward in its leadership & creativity
(Leo tasks & gifts). Humanity within the U.S. must reorient
its consciousness about the purpose of the U.S. at its heart (Leo).
Significant events tend to occur at
eclipses. And especially where the shadows path falls. Which
is the U.S. Following this eclipse, the U.S. will have transiting
Uranus (radical change, unexpected) squaring (a challenge) the
U.S. Pluto (transformation). So, the eclipse seems to be just
beginning for our country.
We remember in the Labours of Hercules for Leo, Hercules had
the lion" (the lower mind, the emotions that were creating
such destruction in the countryside. This eclipse new moon in
Leo calls to humanity to reach up to the Soul, the heart of the
matter, with love.
The creativity of humanity is called forth at this new moon,
eclipse. So that our old ways of thinking of ourselves can fall
away. So, a new creative identity can begin ... Humanity is called
to come from the heart, which is all that matters.

Eclipse Unity Meditation
August 21, 2017, Monday
11:11am PDT (18:11 UT)
meditation uses the opportunity of the New Moon Solar Eclipse to
create a portal through which participants unify consciousness,
and enlighten the energy field around the planet. During the solar
eclipse event, at the time listed above, a powerful astrological
grand trine is charted in the heavens. Energies of liberating electric
fire will flow from the Galactic Center (the Pleroma) throughout
the Solar System and will be channeled through Uranus and through
the Sun / Moon eclipse - all located in fire zodiacal signs. This
is a moment of the most direct connection with the Galactic Center.
Meditation Instructions are included. Meditation time is 15 minutes.
