Sun on July 6
Venus on July 15
See Moon with Sirius table at end of this page.
In our current era The Sun and Sirius are together at the time the Earth is furthest from the Sun and opposite one another when the Earth is closest to the Sun at Perhelion. On January 1 (our current New Year point) Sirius is on the mid-heaven at mid-night. The exact Sun opposition to Sirius is around January 5 or 6 in the same way the Sun and Sirius are conjunct around July 5 or 6. These dates just so happen to also be around the time the Earth is either closest or furthest to the Sun.
This connection to the Sun with Sirius is something that shifts over time occurring in different seasons. The movement is slow only 1 degree every 72 years shifting signs only once every 2160 years.
In 1776 on the 4th of July the Sun was aligned with Sirius. The signing of the US Declaration of Independence was purposely planned for this time accessing the magical energies of this star a bold revolutionary act as Independence was being declared for a new nation. (More on Sirius and the 4th of July HERE)
The Sun with Sirius alchemically activates this star gate – opening the doorway to many multi-dimensional realms including our starry origins.
…Entrusted with the wisdom and knowledge of an earlier and now forgotten civilization, the Ancient Egyptians believed that Sirius held the key to the destiny of their world, and to their own personal immortality.
Their beliefs were based on a series of texts, already ancient in their time, which described special “Star Medicines” that resonated with the energy of Sirius and were capable of transforming their bodies into a higher immortal form.
In the “Maxims of Ptahotep”, we are all urged, “Follow the Heart for as long as you live”, for it is this organ that retains the greatest sensitivity to the harmonizing, archetypal forces of Sirius, it becomes our “listening place”, for the Sirian/Isian message of Eternal Love, Knowledge, and Understanding. (I originally had a link to where this quote came from but it no longer works)
From Late June to the September Equinox the light codes from Sirius amp up and are worth tuning into even though Sirius is invisible until early August.
Sirius and the Dogs Days of Summer
“Contrary to other rivers, [the Nile] begins its annual swelling in the hottest time of the year, at the beginning of the Dog Days, that is, at the moment when Sirius rises at the same time as the Sun, a date which during the third millennium BC coincided with the summer solstice.”
~ Lucy Lamie, Egyptian Mysteries
The the dog days of summer currently begin around June 25 and last until August 11 with the exact Sun conjunction to Sirius happening on July 5 or 6. Sirius rises before the Sun around August 7 in many locations on the August Cross-Quarter. This is due to precession that shifts the seasonal dates through the constellations moving one degree every 72 years.
Sirius was one of the most important stars to the Egyptians because when it rose in the morning sky before the Sun it signaled the annual rise of the Nile river. “Contrary to other rivers, [the Nile] begins its annual swelling in the hottest time of the year, at the beginning of the Dog Days, that is, at the moment when Sirius rises at the same time as the Sun, a date which during the third millennium BC coincided with the summer solstice.” ~ Lucy Lamie, Egyptian Mysteries
The term “the dog days of summer” comes to us from different cultures that recognized the time when the Sun was with Sirius, also known as the “Dog Star”.
Many ancient cultures describe Sirius as a dog or wolf. The ancient Chinese saw this star as a heavenly wolf. In Sumeria, Babylonia and Chaldea (present day Iraq) Sirius was known as the “Dog Star that Leads,” or it was called the “Star of the Dog.” In Assyria, this star was called the “Dog of the Sun.” In ancient Akkadia, it was the “Dog Star of the Sun.” Clearly Sirius has been viewed by many cultures as a Dog Star. http://www.constellationsofwords.com/stars/Sirius.html
“Dog days” is the name for the sultriest period of summer, from about July 3 to August 11. Named in early times by observers in countries bordering the Mediterranean, the period was reckoned as extending from 20 days before to 20 days after the conjunction of Sirius (a.k.a the dog star) and the Sun….The time of conjunction varies with difference in latitude, and because of the precession of the equinoxes it changes gradually over long periods in all latitudes. http://www.infoplease.com/spot/dogdays.htmlThe
These canicular days get their name from Sirius, the brightest star in the constellation Canis Major. At this time of the year Sirius disappears into the Sun’s glow meaning the Sun and Sirius are rising and setting around the same time.
What is Canicular?
The Latin word canicula, meaning “small dog,” is the diminutive form of “canis,” source of the English word canine. “Canicula” is also the Latin name for Sirius, the star that represents the hound of Orion in the constellation named for that hunter from Roman and Greek mythology. Because the first visible rising of Sirius occurs during the summer, the hot sultry days that occur from early July to early September came to be associated with the Dog Star. The Greeks called this time of year “hēmerai kynades,” which the Romans translated into Latin as dies caniculares, or as we know them in English, “the dog days. ~Webster’s Dictionary
Ancient stargazers thought the heat from Sirius, the brightest star in the heavens, combined with the heat of the Sun creating the hottest days of the year! Technically Sirius is hotter than our Sun however, it is unlikely this far away star is adding to the heat of our planet.
However, it is worth noting the synchronicity of the Sun with Sirius giving rise to these stories in the current star season that lasts for a few thousand years. Over 26,000 years every season will connect with the Sun and Sirius shifting signs every 2160. For example, Sirius currently at 14 Cancer 21 is in this seasonal sign for 2160 years having entered this sign just over a 1000 years ago and staying in this sign another 1160 or so years. Previously Sirius traveled through the seasonal sign of Leo for 2160 years and will be in the seasonal sign of Gemini for 2160 years covering the summer months in the Northern Hemisphere.
Sirius the Giver of Life
The ancient Egyptians saw Sirius as a giver of life for it always reappeared at the time of the annual flooding of the Nile. When the star sank in the west and disappeared from the night sky, it was hidden by the light of the Sun for 70 days before appearing in the east at its heliacal rise or rising before the Sun. This was viewed as a time of death and rebirth.Sirius
This was so important to the Egyptians they used this 70 day period in their funeral rites. For example, when a king died it was 70 days after death when the burial took place symbolizing when the king was “reborn” in the stars. ~Damond Benningfield.
More on the Egyptian View of Sirius
For the Egyptians Sirius was key to the destiny of their world, and to their own personal immortality. Their beliefs were based on a series of texts, already ancient in their time, describing special “Star Medicines” that resonated with the energy of Sirius capable of transforming their bodies into a higher immortal form. http://www.siriusrising.com/main.htm
Sirius also has associations with higher dimensional frequencies of consciousness helping to quicken and evolve our planet and shift our physical vibration. Tuning into the Planets as they pass Sirius further facilitates the restructuring and cellular transformational process already underway. This is an especially useful time to sit with clear intent in meditative relationship opening to receive insights or messages about your own personal transformational process.
Is Sirius Our Spiritual Sun?
The Dog Star, Sirius is also known as our Spiritual Sun, esoterically the heart of our physical Sun. During the Dog Days when Sirius disappears into the Sun’s glowing light some say our physical Sun is embracing our Spiritual Sun! After such a celestial union a rebirth or resurrection occurs 70 days later.
This is the period of time Sirius disappears from the sky — sequenced in the myth when Isis is hiding until the birth of her son, Horus — eventually the star reappears after Horus is born — resurrection. It is time!
Sirius was astronomically the foundation of their [Egypt’s] entire religious system. It was the embodiment of Isis, sister and consort of the god Osiris, who appeared in the sky as Orion. Crystalinks.com/inundation
Sirius and the Sun within 6 Degrees from June 30 to July 12 each year.
Sirius is a Behenian Star so Sirius is with the Sun. The Taoists see the Sun as a gateway, and the alchemists also recognized the importance of the Sun activating the Sirius when the energies of this magical star are illuminated and amplified so we can more easily access the wisdom found in various multi-dimensional realms. This includes the knowledge and remembrance of our starry origins.
From late June until the September Equinox the light codes from Sirius are amped up – worth tuning into even though Sirius will not be visible in the morning sky until about August 7th each year. These are often referred to as the Dog Days of Summer.
Some souces say The Dog Days of Summer are from July 3 to August 11 when the stars of Canis Major and Canis Minor are with the Sun.
The Great Star of Initiation
Sirius was described as “the Great Star of Initiation” by M. Temple Richmond in his book Sirius. Richmond suggests entering “humbly and reverentially into meditative contemplation of Sirius, the custodian of occult mystery, for in contemplating this great star-being, we encounter a sacred source of transcendence.”

Follow Your Heart
In one of the 37 Maxims of Ptahotep the message of Sirius is to Follow the Heart for as long as you live as the physical heart retains the greatest sensitivity to the harmonizing, archetypal forces of Sirius. The heart is our “listening place” for the Sirian/Isian messages of Eternal Love, Knowledge, and Understanding. (More HERE and scroll way down)
Mythic Story From India
The following India Myth about Sirius and the importance of the Dog Star’s reminds of the importance of following our hearts.
In India, Sirius is known as Svana, the faithful dog of Prince Yudhistira. The prince, along with his dog, Svana and his four brothers set out on a long and arduous journey to find the kingdom of heaven. One by one the brothers abandoned the search all except for Yudhistira and Svana. At long last they arrived at the gates of heaven.
The gatekeeper, Lord Indra, welcomed the prince but denied Svana entrance. Yudhistira was aghast and told Lord Indra that he could not forsake his good and faithful servant and friend. Yudhistira told Lord Indra his brothers had abandoned the journey to heaven. But the faithful dog Svana, who had given his heart freely, chose to follow none but Yudhistira. The prince told the Lord that without his dog, he would forsake even heaven. This is what Lord Indra wanted to hear and he welcomed them both (the prince and the dog) through the gates of heaven.
Around the world Sirius has been seen as a dog or wolf. For example, the ancient Chinese saw this star as a heavenly wolf. In Sumeria, Babylonia and Chaldea (present day Iraq) the star was known as the “Dog Star that Leads,” or it was called the “Star of the Dog.” In Assyria, the “Dog of the Sun.” In still older Akkadia, it was the “Dog Star of the Sun.” Tuning into Dog and Wolf medicine as loyal companion and teacher is a great way to receive the guidance from Sirius that is being amplified while the Sun is there.
Stars Influence Humans
It is said that the fixed stars, and their domain, contain the essences or souls of matter … a living soul is a higher essence of matter, and when evolved may also be called a star. These stars and essences become gods. Like souls, stars are regarded as having divine attributes. Stars look down from regions of chaotic, violent, purity onto the world of humanity and influence the energies of humankind invisibly, yet most powerfully.
In June of 1993, as our Sun covered Sirius from the Earth’s view, the largest flood of the past century occurred. The waters of the Mississippi, our Nile River, overflowed its banks. The flood that year continued until the middle of August. When Sirius re-appeared from behind the sun, the flood waters receded and the immediate life-threatening crisis subsided. Could this not have been a reflection of the great rivers of energies streaming out from Sirius? http://www.souledout.org/cosmology/sirius/siriusgodstar.html
Mayan Day Out of Time
July 26 is sometimes referred to as The Mayan Day Out of Time as described by Jose Arguelles. Some say the day of time was originally calculated for the the Heliacal Rise of Sirius or when Sirius would rise into the morning sky before the Sun. The date of that occurrence shifts over time – 1 degree every 72 years and is a different date for different latitudes as indicated in the above table. Currently Sirius is NOT visible on July 26 and the exact conjunction with the Sun is now on July 5 or 6.
Without time we would not have a way to experience this reality and yet time is ultimately an illusion. In The Emerald Tablets of Thoth the Atlantean by Doreal originally published in the 1930s Tablet 10 Thoth asks about the Mysteries of Time and receives the following answer…
Once, in a past time, I spoke to the Dweller. Asked of the mystery of time and space. Asked him the question that surged in my being, saying: “O Master, what is time?”
Then to me spoke He, the Master: “Know ye, O Thoth, in the beginning there was void and nothingness: a timeless, spaceless, nothingness. And into the nothingness came a thought, purposeful, all-pervading, and It filled the Void. There existed no matter, only force, a movement, a vortex of vibration of the purposeful thought that filled the Void.”
And I questioned the Master, saying: “Was this thought eternal?” And answered me the Dweller, saying: “In the beginning, there was eternal thought, and for thought to be eternal, time must exist. So into the all-pervading thought grew the Law of Time. Aye, time which exists through all space, floating in a smooth, rhythmic movement that is eternally in a state of fixation. Time changes not, but all things change in time.
For time is the force that holds events separate, each in its proper place. Time is not in motion, but ye move through time as your consciousness moves from one event to another. Aye, by time ye exist, all in all, an eternal One existence. Know ye that even though in time ye are separate, yet still are One in all times existent.” Ceased then the voice of the Dweller, and departed I to ponder on time. For knew I that in these words lay wisdom and a way to explore the mysteries of time.
Many indigenous cultures had ways of tracking the seasonal cycles of Time. The Mayans used their calendars within calendars to measure the seasons and astronomical events and other aspects of time that were important to them. They had the ability to look millions of years into the future and the past. For them Time had no beginning and no end and one of the ways they reminded themselves that Time is an illusion was to have a Day Out of Time once each year. Attempting to understand the complexities of Time with only our minds has not been successful. The Mayans knew that and created many of their calendars from an intuitive or feeling sense of Time along with the use of the logical rational aspects of mind. Indeed, understanding the Mayan calendars requires intuitive ability as well as logic and reason. In a sense it requires a desire to know in ways that go beyond ordinary knowing, a desire to remember, and a desire to connect or – reconnect with this aspect of Great Mystery.
Shamanic Astrology utilizes what we know and remember from all the ancient cultures to provide a powerful way to remember our connection to Great Mystery primarily through a direct experience of the cycles and rhythms of Earth and Sky. Studying Shamanic Astrology, reading Celestial Timings, having a reading or coming to an event are all great ways to deepen your connection to your own divine design and what time it is for you in your life and the greater collective here at the Turning of the Ages. http://www.shamanicastrology.com/events.htm
July 26 in any year – is a good day to meditate on the mysteries of Time, bridging the past and future in the here and now.
Rainbow Bridge Meditation
One way to do this is to engage in the Rainbow Bridge Meditation happening around the planet on the Day Out of Time. This mediation can be done anytime, thought is greatly empowered when collectively joining in with the intent described below. https://lawoftime.org/rainbow-bridge/rainbow-bridge-is-universal-peace.html
The purpose of this Meditation is to generate a telepathic wave of love that connects human hearts with the center (or heart) of the Earth, with the bipolar rainbow alternators that hold Earth’s magnetic fields in place, and with all of the other planetary kin who are doing the same meditation.
By establishing and participating with this world-wide telepathic Earth wave we are co-creating a matrix of communication bringing the noosphere – Earth’s mental envelope – ever closer into conscious manifestation. This matrix also provides a protective field of genuinely positive thought vibrations meant to maintain Earth’s resonant field in a state of harmony and peace.
This Rainbow Bridge is the bridge of peace long prophesied that will permanently connect the third-dimensional Earth with the fourth and higher dimensions, assuring a peace and harmony that will not be broken. In order that all beings may participate in this meditation whether or not they have ever heard of the synchronic order, we offer this universal version of the Day Out of Time Rainbow Bridge World Peace Meditation found at this link… https://lawoftime.org/rainbow-bridge/rainbow-bridge-meditation.html
