Sirius in Astrology is not super important unless you have the Sun, Moon or a personal planet conjunct this Fixed Star. Then it’s your guide star! There are people out there obsessed with Fixed Stars & they’re insanely erudite on the subject. I’m not but I kind of swing back into being interested in them every few years or so.
The Fixed Stars do not move. There are a whole lot of them and because the study of them is SO super-ancient, the interpretations of them can be a bit fatalistic and gory, very Game of Thrones, actually.
But Sirius – The Dog Star – is one of the good guys. The brightest star in the sky – generally out-shone only by our Lady Venus, Sirius was madly important to the Ancient Egyptians because they timed the Nile flooding by the cycles of this star. The Maoris – they called him Takura. Sirius pops up in all manner of fiction as well – everything from the Illiad to early Tolkien and Harry Potter.
Sirius In Astrology Matters The Most To People Born Around July 6
For our purposes, we need only know that Sirius is said to convey the characteristics of Mars AND Jupiter (war-like, rich, lucky, nice maybe) AND to be fixed at 14 degrees of Cancer/Kataka.
So if your birthday is July 6 or July 7, your Sun is conjunct Sirius the Dog Star. The sages of the olden days would have deemed you to have a special destiny, you should probably have a companion wolf or at least a Dog totem and you’re in some interesting company.
And…you? Of course, these people have their Sun conjunct Sirius. But maybe you’ve got something else at 14 Cancer/Kataka?
