Today 8-8-16, two 8’s, double the infinity and a double 8 in Numerology, is a very ancient celebration marking the Heliacal rising of SIRIUS, Canus Major, Dog-star, the brightest star in the sky. As it rises with the SUN today it’s a powerful cosmic REBIRTH and abundance symbol.
This star has been worshipped for thousands of years as the embodiment of the Great Mother, Egyptian Goddess ISIS, and as OSIRIS, her consort and their son Horus.
ISIS was known as the protector of the dead. Ancient Egyptians also associated the rising of Sirius with ISIS’s tears shed for her slain husband OSIRIS. Her worship continued throughout history and temples to her were built in Iraq Greece and Rome. She was identified with Aphrodite/Venus and roses are used to commemorate her.
SIRIUS was a giver of life as its reappearance marked the annual flooding of the Nile. When the star sank in the west and disappeared in the night sky it is invisible for 70 days. This was a time of death and rebirth. The Ancient Egyptian funeral ceremonies mimicked this time period.
SIRIUS is considered to be the Spiritual Sun of our Sun. As the two stars appear to unite this is a time of spiritual communion and celebration. The entire festival of this star lasts during the month of LEO from July 22 until August 22. If you are
If you are a LEO you are a SIRIAN.
There is a prayer and invocation to OSIRUS based on the GOLDEN DAWN initition.
“I am Osiris Triumphant, the Justified One. I am He who is clothed with the body of flesh yet in whom flames the spirit of the eternal Gods. I am the Lord of Life. I am triumphant over Death, and whosoever partaketh with me shall with me arise. I am the manifester in Matter of Those whose abode is the Invisible. I am the purified. I stand upon the Universe. I am it’s Reconciler with the eternal Gods. I am the Perfector of Matter, and without me the Universe is not.”
Sending you many blessings today for a spiritual upgrade, rebirth and much joy and abundance during the Dog Days of summer in the Northern Hemisphere.
