Sirius The Dog Star

Amber Valletta with Dog pouncing

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 and to the Maoris – they called him Takura.  Sirius pops up in all manner of fiction as well – everything from the Illiad to early Tolkien.

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.

Sirius Dog Star Peeps – no judgement, just facts:  Frida Kahlo, 50 Cent, Hllary Mantel (author of Wolf Hall) George Bush Jr, The 14th Dalai Lama, Tamara Mellon, Nancy Regan  and Sylvester Stallone.  And…you? Of course, these people have their SUN on Sirius.  But maybe you’ve got something else at 14 Cancer/Kataka?

Just got an excellent Audio Zap from Mystic and Sirius is in my Tenth House where my Sun + Mercury sit! Interestingly I’ve been considering getting a dog to add to the fur sector of my household, and wolves have always been favoured canines for me.

How about Venus exactly opposing Sirius?

Ooh my sun is at exactly 14 degrees of Cancer / Kataka! This is exciting news.

My crab love is a 13+degree sun. He likes dogs of course though really a cat person, but what I find fascinating is that he was obsessed with Egypt as a child and has had a lifetime of alien encounters. That he has a special destiny I’m convinced, from the first moment. What it is I haven’t a clue.

Sound exactly like my issue. Always been obsessed with ancient Egypt since I was a kid. My sun and midheaven in conjunction with sirius.

Jupiter, Ceres and Chiron conjunct/ Neptune opposite Sirus

It forms a t-square to sun/moon opposition.

I love dogs. Ogling at them anyway. Never had very good luck with them 🙁

More of a cat person :3

I was due to be born on July 7. So my natal birth Crab 5th house has Sun 9 and Mercury 11. Not enough to bring on the luck. Well Jupiter is cruising through this house, perhaps it will instigate some luck and send it my way.

The Ancient Egyptians didn’t originally connect Sirius with dogs (though love the Inuits called it the ‘Moon Dog’ – avatar name anyone?!) They connect Sirius with the annual flooding of the precious Nile and its rise marked the beginning of the New Year. Sirius (Sopdet in Egyptian) is “Fair Star of the Waters” and the Opener of the Year and is related to Isis. I like looking at Orion (or actually Rigel which is in that constellation) & Sirius together as they have a relationship for the Egyptians. Orion (Rigel) belongs to Osiris, just as Sirius to Isis. Orion rises… Read more »

Cool Andy…

In my Draconic chart the Moon is at 13 degrees Cancer in 8th.

My son born 4th July , he is like a big blonde Labrador. His scorp rising gives him teeth though if he is stirred up enough.
So was the USA born on that day ? 4th July ? Pretty close to a Sirius conj.

Haven’t had time to read the comments but this stood out to me: how fascinating about the 14th Dalai Lama (eek, initially spelling: llama!) being born at 14 degrees in Kataka…

This woman gives all good mystical folk a bad name. She’s not mystical, just criminal.

You are one of the good ones Mystic.
I’m met shonks and dodgy types, and I know straight off the bat when I meet a genuine practitioner of any kind of healing, magic etc.

Wasn’t there a Sirius in Harry Potter? His uncle? And he was a wolf right? I have Sirius conjunct Mercury in the 4th house. I’ve always loved dogs but its only in the last year and a half that I’ve had the pleasure of really connecting with one. My 1 & 1/2yr old Pisces puppy looks exactly like the dog in the pic but a quarter of the size (she’s a miniature pinscher). We have so much fun and she makes me laugh every single day! She is obsessed with water, her toys, (very) early morning wake ups, loves people… Read more »

Me and guess who. The one we dare not mention (HF) have our Davidson sun on Sirius in the 7th house. His Venus is on my Chiron and my Uranus.
My Venus and moon are both on his Mars, Chiron and Uranus. Our Davidson Saturn is in the 7th house too and both of us have mars in each other’s eighth house.
But none of that matters because I’m totally over him obviously!

My sun is at 17* Kataka so not quite.

interesting! My mom’s sun is at 19 cancer. That might be too far away to count. Certainly she is not warlike or particularly lucky. But she does have a dog so that counts for something.

conjunct my natal Jupiter in 5th. Oh boy do I know how to party!

My Mom is a double Kataka with Scorp moon born July 5th and has changed her name to Alluvia because that’s what her boyfriend in her head from Sirius calls her. No joke and she’s in her early 70’s. 🙁

Your mum and I would get along well – Scorp Moon here too. Alluvia – he is honouring her precious earthiness as expressed by her being an inhabitant of the Good ship Gaia? Love it!!! You don’t wanna know what goes on in my head, lol.

always meaning to check out fixed stars…interesting to note that Lilith is currently at 14 Kataka…must ponder this hook-up–lol

Sirius is conjunct my Hecate in my first house. My Irish Setter taught me how to stand and walk when I was a kid. BUT I have Ubasti and Sekhmet both conjunct my sun. After I was intro’d to kitties, well, the kitties wouldn’t allow a dog into the mix unless said dog was extremely admiring of the cats. 🙂

Sirius is within orb of my backwards Saturn, 5th house. What a great discovery, to find I have something lovely in my 5th! Thanks for this info, Mystic 🙂

I love dobies, had two growing up. Very loyal & astute, patient & gentle with kids; an absolute nightmare to outsiders. Haha love them!

kataka mars at 14.. in eleventh house (the most aspected planet in my chart)
is this somehow balances the placement in his fall?

and, yes i love the wolf totem, pictures, art

but , special destiny, no i dont think so..

Kittie

Gee, me too. Also Uranus conjunct Mars at 14 degree Kataka in the 11th house. Does that make me a mad dog?

My son was born on the 6/7/1995 and he is the only one of my three kids that wanted a dog (a german shepherd has always been his request)

Geminian

German Shepherds rock. So devoted to their owner and amazingly protective. I had one for years and he was my shadow. Such unconditional love. He probably had some kind of major Sirius action in his chart. I feel him around me still even though he’s in spirit, such is the strength of his devotion. Bless him.

That’s beautiful Geminian. I also love German Shepherds and any pet is a gift.

I’m a Sirius Dog Star peep! … but alas I’m not at all a dog person. Far prefer cats. However the Cap-Love-Interest was born in the year of the dog and so is the Virgo Bestie. Wonder if they count as companion animals? heh 😉

…. special destiny eh? Well if I have one, wouldn’t have a fracking clue what it is ….

Ahhhh, would that be Sirius B ? The dogstar that chases Sirius A, the catstar ? The Dogon of Timbuktu reknown base their whole mythology around this cosmic rover . Refer the fantabulous ‘Half Asleep in Frog Pyjamas’ by the profane ,profound Tom Robbins. The Mayans regard the Pleiadian system as home and stay in regular contact . Barbara Hand Clow has written extensively on global indigenius ancient acknowledgement of our true celestial inheritence.We need to take ourselves more Siriusly,walk like an Egyptian ! I Love my K9 companions , feline just fine too ! Thanks for the Pleiadian prompting… Read more »

Super chef husband lawyer by day-has Venus at 13 Kataka- on his IC. He rocks the food and most fare is better than a chic restaurant’s.

As I mentioned via Twitter, I’ve got Venus conjunct Sirius. There are some other “Dog Stars” which are on the list.. such as “MIRZAM” conjunct Mars.. Of course I didn’t want to see myself as a “dog”.. because A. I am more of a cat person, and B. I wouldn’t consider myself blindly loyal, but others disagree.
