Sirius ~ Leo Cosmic Festival
The Sirius ~ Leo Cosmic Festival is celebrated at the Full Moon during the sign of Leo (July 22 - August 22). In 2019 the Full Moon is exact Thursday, August 15 at 5:29am PDT (12:29) UT). This Festival is dedicated to the task of making contact with Sirian force.
It 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.
During the Sirius ~ Leo Cosmic Festival, the soul light within us is ever increasingly aware of the spiritual light emanating from Sirius. This great Sirian light is becoming more available, bringing to us a new opportunity, a new path. The Sirius ~ Leo Festival prepares humanity and in turn planet Earth for perfection and ultimate cosmic service, bringing us into contact with the Heart of God.
Note: Once a year, during Earth's orbit around the Sun, the Sun passes directly in front of Leo's brightest star, Regulus. These heavnly bodies unite as one in a hearty solar / soulic embrace. This occurs because Regulus is positioned almost exactly on the ecliptic. Annually on or near August 22, the Sun (heart of our solar system) occults Regulus (heart star of Leo the Lion), which focuses and regulates the emanations of Sirius (esoterically the heart of our Sun) toward Earth.

The Sirius ~ Leo Full Moon's Position
Annually the Sirius ~ Leo Cosmic Festival Full Moon lies in the dim constellation Capricornus. High above flies Aquila the Eagle with its brightest star Altair, the head of Aquila. This star is also the southern point of the Summer Triangle, a transformational gateway seen overhead in the night sky during Leo.
The 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.
Aquila 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! Co-create with the inner divine one!

5 Retrograde Planets
In 2019 five planets are retrograde during the Sirius ~ Leo Cosmic lunar cycle (July 31-Aug. 30). Note: As Jupiter ends its retrograde, Uranus begins its retrograde.
A planet in retrograde motion is in a close approach to Earth, as a result it appears bigger and brighter than normal and has a strong effect on the consciousness of humanity. 5 planets retrograding during Sirius ~ Leo Cosmic lunar cycle are bound to potently influence and transform us.
Retrograde periods of are periods of “re": renewing, reflecting, restarting, re-evaluating, reviewing, revising, reworking, recharging, etc. Retrograde periods are a time to slow down and consider what changes are needed to create a truly meaningful life, the life that is in alignment with our innate essential Divinity.
The seeds of death for the current material life are activated and we must awaken to a higher spiritual frequency and its potential earthly expression. Now is the time for the "dark light" of matter to be stimulated by a far greater light.
During this Full Moon Festival we have the opportunity to make contact with the Sirian force, its evolutionary energies and the cosmic principle of Love and Freedom. An open heart and mind activate the soul and help one make this contact.
In 2019 five retrograde planets are impressing humanity to slow down and re-evaluate how we are living our lives. What changes must each of us make to create a meaningful life that is in alignment with our innate divinity.
The time has come to recognize we all are of divine lineage, evolving toward our greater destiny. We must lift ourselves to the higher ground of soul and its guiding intuition. It is here that we can receive the new awareness of the infinite unknown. With the light of the soul we see how to bring these new energies into our everyday lives.
The heavens are pouring forth new life ... drink up!
