Sirius ~ Leo Cosmic Festival is
celebrated at the Full Moon during the sign of Leo (July 22 - August
21). In 2017 the Full Moon is exact Monday, August 7 at

This Festival is dedicated to the task of making contact with Sirian

stars revolve around each other every 50 years. White dwarfs are
the leftover remnants of stars similar to our Sun. The Sirius system,
only 8.6 light-years from Earth, is the fifth closest stellar system
known. Sirius B is faint because of its tiny size. Its diameter is
only 7,500 miles (about 12 thousand kilometers), slightly smaller
than the size of our Earth.
system is so close to Earth that most of the familiar constellations
would have nearly the same appearance as in our own sky. In this
rendition, we see in the background the three bright stars that make
up the Summer Triangle: Altair, Deneb, and Vega. Altair is the white
dot above Sirius A; Deneb is the dot to the upper right; and Vega
lies below Sirius B. But there is one unfamiliar addition to the
constellations: our own Sun is the second-magnitude star, shown as
a small dot just below and to the right of Sirius A. [Annotated
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.
words from Marianne Williamson capture the essence of the Leo mysteries. "...
We are born to make manifest the Glory of God that is within us.
It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our
own Light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to
do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence
automatically liberates others." When Leo is in its strength and
power this energy knows and remembers its radiant and shining divine
essence shared by all life. Shamanic

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

cosmic service, bringing us into contact with the Heart of God.
stands in a unique relationship to the sun at the heart of
our solar system. The planetary and systemic alignment established
at this Festival is a heart / soul alignment. The heart of
humanity, the heart of the planet ~ the spiritual Hierarchy
~ and the heart of the sun create the channel which extends
to Sirius ... This alignment is evocative of the cosmic principle
of Love and Freedom, both of which flow through Sirius and
Leo into our range of awareness. Lucis
a year, during Earth's orbit around the Sun, the Sun passes
directly in front of Leo's brightest star, Regulus. These
heavenly 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
of Sirius (esoterically
the heart of our Sun) toward Earth. In
2017 the Sun occults Regulus August 22 the day after the August 21

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.
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!

Eclipses in the Sign of Leo

Eclipses Affect Our Lives
eclipse lunar cycles mark a time of shifting into a new octave of
experience ... to resynchronize our selves with the ever-changing
cosmic currents supporting our evolutionary progression in consciousness.
Eclipses tend to bring about endings [Full Moon/Lunar Eclipses] and
new beginnings [New Moon/Solar Eclipses].
influences generally last about six months, until the next eclipse
occurs. Eclipse lunar cycles are ideal times to set new six-month
goals to create personal change in our lives, not necessarily on
the solar or lunar eclipse, but based upon the realizations we have
throughout the eclipse lunar cycles.
eclipses ... are about releasing the emotional bonds within ourselves
that glue us to involvements that are less than we truly want or
eclipses ... are about shifting octaves in the nature of our self-perception
and self-expression, and addressing issues that keep us from doing
so. They can invite a ... new way of participating in life. Nick

Earth's shadow on the moon will be clearly visible in this eclipse,
with 25% of the Moon in shadow; the partial eclipse will last for
1 hour and 55 minutes and will be visible from Europe, Africa, most
of Asia, and Australia. Learn more at Hermit
addition to the emotional nature of a lunar eclipse, 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". We are reminded to
reflect on how we are held in the dark by virtue of our perspective.

maps for all 50 US states as well as little-known eclipse zones in
Canada and Europe.
solar eclipse is always a supercharged New Moon. The light of the Sun
representing our masculine active, conscious will and vital life-giving
force is joined by the darkness of the Moon representing our female
receptive, subconscious, instinctive nature. A New Moon eclipse is
a personal and global opportunity and challenge to come into a new
balance and level of wholeness, one that can shift our
self-perception and self-expression dramatically.
at a solar eclipse, something deeply essential within us, for us,
around us, comes to a close. Within each of us (Leo, the individual,
Leo the Group). And something within our country (the swath of the
shadow flows across the U.S.) too. When something essential falls
away, it’s work is completed. And we are grateful.
with the new moon eclipse there is a ... Sun [illuminating] trine
(harmonizing) Uranus [needed changes] ... The "shadow" of
the eclipse streams across the U.S. A portending of things to come
concerning the changes the U.S. will bring about, in order to "stand
in the Light & lead humanity within & towards the Light." The
changes are already occurring in our country. Via our president -
Who has Sun/Uranus - (bringing out change, quickly - which is Uranus).
He has Mars at 27 Leo - so the eclipse will highlight his Mars -
his action as a president as it affects the people of the U.S.
Leo is about the individual coming to recognize themselves as a personality
first, and strengthening that personality (physical body, emotions,
lower mind), recognizing their creative selves, and reaching up to
the Soul. Leo is the Light of the Soul. Calling forth the Soul of
the individual & the Soul of the United States.
U.S. has North Node (dharma, how we accept, adapt to & step into
the present/future), so the Leo new moon will call the U.S. to step
forward in its leadership & creativity (Leo tasks & gifts).
Humanity within the U.S. must reorient its consciousness about the
purpose of the U.S. at its heart (Leo).
Significant events tend to occur at eclipses. And especially where
the shadows path falls. Which is the U.S. Following this eclipse,
the U.S. will have transiting Uranus (radical change, unexpected)
squaring (a challenge) the U.S. Pluto (transformation). So, the eclipse
seems to be just a beginning for our country.
We remember in the Labours of Hercules for Leo, Hercules had to "kill
the lion" (the lower mind, the emotions that were creating such
destruction in the countryside. This eclipse new moon in Leo calls
to humanity to reach up to the Soul, the heart of the matter, with
The creativity of humanity is called forth at this new moon, solar
eclipse. So that our old ways of thinking of ourselves can fall away.
So, a new creative identity can begin ... Humanity is called to come
from the heart, which is all that matters.

Solar Eclipse Unity Meditation

11:11am PDT (18:11 UT)
meditation uses the opportunity of the New Moon Solar Eclipse to create
portal through which participants unify
consciousness, and enlighten the
energy field around the planet.
During the solar eclipse event,
at the time listed above, a powerful
astrological grand trine is charted in
the heavens. Energies of liberating
electric fire will flow from the Galactic
Center (the Pleroma) throughout the
Solar System and will be channeled
through Uranus and through the
Sun / Moon eclipse - all located
in fire zodiacal signs. This is
a moment of the most direct
connection with the Galactic Center.
Meditation Instructions are included.
Meditation time is 15 minutes.

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.
this Full Moon Festival we make contact with the Sirian force,
its evolutionary energies and the cosmic principle of Love and
Freedom. In 2017 we are are also moving through Leo's two eclipse
gateways toward the doorway of higher unified consciousness.
It's like walking across a bridge to a brand new place, and there
is no turning back. The heavens are pouring forth new life ...
