Sirius * Present Time Events

We can observe the outward effects of the Goodwill Festival of Humanity at the full moon during Gemini in the general populace through emphasis on weddings, graduations, and vacations that take place around that time. These are all reflections of the Christ's annual distribution of the spiritual energies from on high delivered by the Buddha at Wesak and held in trust for a cycle by the Christ ~ together with Hierarchy and the NGWS (us!) ~ and carry the characteristic quality of energy being distributed, for that event namely Goodwill.

In the same way perhaps we can look into the events that are associated with the Leo cycle, actually effective beginning with the annual conjunction of the Sun to Sirius on July 6 at 14° Cancer, to glean more about the significance of the Sirius Festival at the full moon during Leo (and most frequently, during August).

Today August 6 marks the anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima and nowadays in balance of that event this date is characterized by Peace events in Japan and around the globe.

Tomorrow August 7, the first Sunday in August each year, is designated International Forgiveness Day.

And ... today August 6 is also the Qixi Festival "Chinese Valentine's Day" ~ a lunar calendar event taking place in present time. its significance relates to two stars in the Night Sky, Altair and Vega, both high up at this time of year in the Summer Triangle and both in constellations representing birds (i.e., the Soul) ~ it's a love story between a cowherd and the daughter of the Emperor.

"The Chinese Valentine's Day is on the 7th day of the 7th lunar month in the Chinese calendar. A love story for this day is about the 7th daughter of Emperor of Heaven and an orphaned cowherd. The Emperor separated them. The 7th daughter was forced to move to the star Vega and the cowherd moved to the star Altair. They are allowed to meet only once a year on the day of 7th day of 7th lunar month." (story continues here)

And one more event happening in present time, yet again a variation on the "Marriage of Heaven and Earth" ... perhaps it would be helpful to consider the derivation of the cross-quarter day observed through the centuries, known as Teltane or Lammas.

Tomorrow (Sunday August 7) we reach the midpoint (15° Leo) between the summer solstice and the autumn equinox, this event having been observed as a festival since antiquity by widely different cultures. Expanding on "the Celts celebrated a ritual marriage on this day between Lugh, the Sun, and Eire, the Earth. This cosmic mating of the male and female energies was vital to the maintenance of harmony and abundance," ... here's a writeup that sums up the heritage of this cross-quarter observation, as established by the ancients and handed down to us ...

Synchronistically, Davita Lynne's post earlier today "Universality of the Season" is yet another instance of the meeting of Heaven and Earth around this time, with the Virgin Mary's bodily resurrection before being taken into heaven, that is observed August 15 and preceded by a 2-week fast.

And, as for themes, these above listed present time occurrences also pertain to Sirius.

There may be other events in this cycle that also feel connected to the alignment of Sirius, the Sun and Leo, and that tie into Sirian themes, thanks for bringing these to our attention here.

To the Glory of the One!

Sirius A and B 11th September 2011

At this very moment, certain sites on the web, have removed the view of Sirius A and B? This is very strange, as there would only be one reason to do that! You can guess what that is. It's two Stars, or more, and science is not saying anything. So, as the saying goes "Seek and you shall find" (a big can of worms)!
