Sirius ~ Leo Cosmic Festival
The Sirius ~ Leo Cosmic Festival is celebrated at the Full Moon during the sign of Leo (July 22 - August 21). In 2016 the Full Moon is exact Thursday, August 18 at 2:26am PDT (09:26 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. 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.

A Lunar Eclipse?
This lunar eclipse is not noted on any of the popular astronomical websites. Some calculations have the Earth's shadow just missing the Moon. Some say and show that it grazes the faintest (penumbral), northern edge of the Earth's shadow. In any case it is considered an imperceptible event.
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 suggests that our material viewpoint stands in the way of our "seeing the light". A lunar eclipse serves as a reminder that we need to realize how we are held in the dark by virtue of our perspective.
An open heart and mind helps one make contact with the Sirian force at this time.
Reflections ~ The Full Moon's Position
The 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!
Reflections ~ Full Moon's Illumination
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.
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.
During this Full Moon Festival we make contact with the Sirian force, its evolutionary energies and the cosmic principle of Love and Freedom. We are moving through the 2016 doorway of higher unified consciousness. There is no turning back. The heavens are pouring forth new life ... drink up!
Note: In 2016 the folks at SouledOut.org will meditate in group alignment on Wednesday, August 17 at 9:00pm PDT (04:00 UT on Thursday, August 18). All who wish to join in at this time are welcome, however if you are unable to do so, choose a time within 12 hours before or after the full moon to participate in this cosmic event.
