Sirian Blue Moon
This is the second of two Leo full moon festivals and hence a ‘blue moon’; appropriate, as Sirius is the source of the blue Love-Wisdom energy, the very fabric of our entire solar system. Our Sun (or Solar Logos, ‘Sol’), is the progeny or incarnation of that stupendous life we call Sirius, the brightest star in the night sky.
The colour of the Love-Wisdom ray has been given as dark indigo blue or ‘midnight blue’, contrasting with this brightest star, and symbolic of humanity groping its way through obscuration, back to its divine source. Sirius is a beacon of hope and accomplishment for those who will eventually liberate themselves from Earth and choose a way that leads beyond this solar system – this is the ‘Fourth Path’ or the ‘Sirian Path’. The old saying that ‘we are stardust’ is scientifically and esoterically true – inhabitants of this solar system are literally composed of ‘Sirian substance’.
Part of the mystery of incarnation and the ‘why are we here’ answers lay in this field. The Sirian force that casts its influence over our tiny, ‘unimportant planet’ (as one of the Masters has described it!), redeems and makes sacred this Earth sphere; this is achieved courtesy of billions of human souls incarnating over countless aeons, eventually finding perfection and a joyous flowering.
From spirit into densest matter and returning to spirit again, each soul contributes its part; personal redemption contributes to planetary redemption. As each soul-cell achieves release, its ‘perfume’ lingers within the aura of the Earth, contributing to the evolutionary plan.
In our current (unprecedented) cycle, this rhythm is accelerating through greater numbers of humanity fitting themselves as candidates for initiation – linking the higher guiding divinity with the inner germinating seed. As the twelve zodiacal petals of the heart lotus open over many lifetimes of pleasure and pain, sorrow and joy, attachment and detachment – finally the revelation of the Jewel within the Lotus is all that remains.
Sirius, Leo and the Birth of Human Consciousness
As the ‘science of all sciences’, Esoteric Astrology necessarily embraces the vast sweep of time cycles and history, particularly the event of human Individualisation during ancient Lemurian times, 21,000,000 years ago.
At that time, the Sun was precessing on its 2,160 year-cycle through Leo, an appropriate sign for Humanity to receive the ‘spark of mind’, as solar-infused Leo is about true self-consciousness.
The esoteric teachings inform us that this spark of mind was ‘implanted’ in Humanity by a massive and deliberate electrical stimulation that had its source on Sirius, coming via Venus. Sirius is the higher self to our solar system as a whole, just as Venus plays the same role to Earth. The cyclic and karmic opportunity had arrived where it was the turn of our tiny planet to receive this impulse:
“Only one Being (from Sirius) has visited our system and that was at the time of individualisation … The effect of such a visit as that of the Avatar from Sirius is seen as the sumtotal of civilisation and culture, viewing these from the standpoint of the entire system and in one flash of time.”
An extraordinary statement! A Cosmic Avatar such as the one from Sirius is,
“… as far removed from the consciousness of Man, as man is from the consciousness of the atom of substance. Thousands of those great cycles which we call “a hundred years of Brahma” have passed since They approximated the human stage, and They embody force and consciousness which is concerned with the intelligent co-ordination of the starry Heavens.”
Another staggering passage to reflect upon! Penetrating to an understanding of these themes can only be achieved through a disciplined study of the ageless wisdom, combined with the reflective processes of right meditation. As the Mystery Schools re-emerge in this Aquarian cycle, clarification of these enigmas will be granted to those who have fitted themselves for the task.
In order to preserve those anciently implanted Sirian principles, an ancient form of Masonry was created back in Lemurian times:
“Masonry, as originally instituted far back in the very night of time … was organised under direct Sirian influence and modelled as far as possible on certain Sirian institutions and bearing a slight resemblance also to our hierarchical life … Its “Blue Lodge” with its three degrees is related to the three major groups of Lives on Sirius, for there are there no kingdoms of nature, such as we possess; these groups receive all Those Who choose the fourth Path, and train Them in the mode of existence and the type of livingness which is found on Sirius. This will make it plain to you that the least developed of the Sirian Lives are—from our standpoint—all of Them initiates of very high degree.”
During the Age of Aquarius, a Masonry that is based upon the ageless wisdom will be reactivated , along with the other Mystery Schools. Masonry’s current status has been much abused and misused by the selfishness of certain groups who have hijacked its original intention. It is important to bear this in mind when encountering criticism of these groups, or the superstitious and uninformed nonsense on the internet. All systems of thought, religion, spirituality or politics are open to corruption. Many forms of modern ‘exoteric’ Masonry still do good work, albeit unconsciously, though preserving the ‘ancient landmarks’.
Hence, our planet has a mysterious and wondrous history, linked to the previous failed Moon Chain evolution – resolving now through the ‘catch-up’ process of initiation on our Earth Chain.
The Science of Initiation (one of the sub-sciences of Esoteric Astrology), is an evolutionary tool that achieves a more rapid expansion of human consciousness than would otherwise be the case – if we were left to our own devices to wander somewhat circuitously back to the source. The occult wisdom informs us that embarkation upon the path of initiation is a choice made by every human being, based upon their own free will and accord.
It was far back in Lemurian times that the planetary centre known as Shamballa was established, as well as those guides of the race known as the Hierarchy – who instituted the first (very primitive) mystery schools and received candidates for initiation.
Indeed, Sanat Kumara as the ‘King of Shamballa’, is the ultimate Lion – here on this planet. On a higher turn of the spiral, our Solar Logos (Sol) aspires to be a ‘Lion of Cosmic Will’ – in the likeness of his greater Sirian counterpart.
The Great White Lodge on Sirius supervises our Hierarchy here on Earth; our Hierarchy is under the ‘spiritual magnetic control’ of Sirius. The various Lords of Karma in our solar system (Saturn is one), are under the rule of a greater Law of Karma on Sirius. There is in fact a triangle of relationship between these three entities.
The Hierarchy Heart of the Sun
Note ‘heart of the Sun’, esoterically known as Neptune, Leo’s soul ruler – more on this later. Sirius is known as the ‘great star of initiation’ and is called the “brilliant star of sensitivity”, a theme shared with Leo:
“I am reiterating the necessity to recognise the stimulation of consciousness as the objective of all the astrological influences because the outstanding theme of Leo is the activity of the self-conscious unit in relation to its environment or the development of sensitive response to surrounding impacts by the one who stands—as the Sun stands—at the centre of its little universe. The whole story and function of Leo and its influences can be summed up in the word “sensitivity”…
… I want you to have this innate spiritual sensitivity and this outer material sensitivity most carefully in mind if you want truly to understand the influences of Leo upon human beings and especially upon the person born in this sign or who has this sign rising …”
Leo, Sirius and the Month of August
Through its massed appeal for greater light and understanding in the last several hundred years, humanity has been gifted with arcane wisdom that was hitherto hidden behind the veil. The Ageless Wisdom teachings, found in several traditions, has revealed a greater Plan and Purpose in which we can all consciously participate:
“August, which is ruled by Leo, is the month of the Dog-star, or of Sirius, which thus brings Sirius into close relation to Leo. Leo … is ruled by Sirius. Sirius is the home of that greater Lodge to which our fifth initiation admits a person and to which it brings them, as a humble disciple.
Later, when the new world religion is founded and is working, we shall find that the major, monthly festival in August, held at the time of the full moon, will be dedicated to the task of making contact, via the Hierarchy, with Sirian force. Each of the months of the year will later be dedicated (through accurate astrological and astronomical knowledge), to whichever constellation in the heavens governs a particular month, as Sirius governs Leo.”
Note the phrase, ‘when the new world religion is founded and is working’; this ‘religion’ will be an universal spirituality that weaves the luminous threads from all traditions, yet will create a higher synthesis – through the understanding and application of revealed Mystery Teachings.
It is difficult at times to see that possibility in the current global climate; we tend to peer through the glass darkly within the short cycle of one life, blinded by the maya around us, the culture of immediate gratification and media manipulation. But humanity is closer than they know to the goal; the current clash of religious ideologies is connected to the synthesising forces of Shamballa at work.
A ‘new world religion’ may look nothing like religions do today; it is in some ways an inadequate phrasing but it conveys the idea of a re-uniting, or a ‘binding back’ to the Divine Source, as one interpretation of the word religion states. The imminent re-emergence of the Mystery Schools holds the key to these universal laws. Already much material has been released, but the absorption, comprehension and application of those laws will take hundreds of years.
However, once a critical mass of understanding has been reached, what was esoteric will be universal and widely understood; it will determine the moral codes and ethics that humanity lives by – as one un-fragmented whole – just as religions serve this purpose today, albeit with their immersion in secularity, fragmentation, distortion and abuse. The new world religion (see essay), may not appear as ‘religion’ does today, but its underlying purpose of unification will be evident.
Although this ‘new world religion’ is not ‘founded and working’ yet, those who feel a deep resonance with the Mystery Teachings are already invoking these Sirian forces during August. These aspirants and disciples of the world will,
The Significance of Number 4
The current revolution in technology is accelerating a global awareness of the inter-connectedness of all traditions, dissolving boundaries and separation, whilst at the same time over-emphasising the differences, bringing the warring pairs of opposites into potent play.
This is the fourth ray of Harmony through Conflict at work (also the ray of beauty and art); it is the ray that governs humanity and is coming into incarnation in 2025, hence its effects are being felt now; it has a correspondence to the buddhic consciousness of a liberated human soul and it also corresponds to the fourth Sirian Path:
“…the Sun, Sirius, is closely related to our planetary Life … [there is a] particular relationship of this fourth Path to humanity, the fourth kingdom … a relationship of very ancient date between our Lord of the World, Sanat Kumara, and the Lord of Sirius.
… Our planet … on the inner planes and subjectively considered, is a sacred planet; the effects of this transition from non-sacred to sacred have not fully demonstrated themselves objectively … The majority of liberated humanity, and therefore a large number of the initiates who have to make decision, choose this way [The Sirian Path] to the cosmic centre.”
The importance of the number 4 in relation to the fourth ray and the Sirian fourth path, has several correspondences, making this period of history one of momentous and unique synchronisation:
1. Fourth Creative Hierarchy The human. 2. Fourth scheme Our earth scheme. 3. Fourth chain The earth chain. 4. Fourth globe Our planet. 5. Fourth kingdom The human – ruled by the fourth ray. 6. Fourth round The first strictly human round. 7. Four Kumaras Embodiers of humanity. 8. Fourth plane Buddhic, the human goal – leading to Sirian Path. 9. Fourth ether Physical correspondence of the buddhic plane. 
Leo and the Star Regulus
The second solar celebration for Leo in 2013, sees the Sun conjunct Regulus – an alignment that provides an even greater opportunity to receive the Sirian impulse: “The influences of Sirius, three in number, are focussed in Regulus … a star of the first magnitude and which is frequently called “the heart of the Lion.”
Note the phrase ‘three in number’ referring to the influences of Sirius, alluding to a triple system of stars. The ancient Dogon tribe in Mali, Africa, believed in the existence of a Sirian triple system, including the white dwarf star Sirius B (invisible to the naked eye), well before its discovery by telescope in 1862. The Dogon may well have derived their knowledge from the ancient Egyptians, the second subrace of our Fifth Rootrace. In their cosmology, the very esoteric and ‘unproved’ Sirius C is placed at the centre:
S= Sirius A
(sigi tolo – “Star of Yasigi”.)
Da-b= Sirius B
the “egg of the world,” at extreme orbital positions (po tolo – “Star of Fonio”.)
E= Sirius C
(emme ya tolo – “Star of Sorghum Female”) showing “rays” surrounding it. “Put at the centre of the egg as the Sun at the centre of the solar system.”
Fa= Sirius C’s planet (nyan tolo – “Star of Women”). The small spiral shows it is a satellite of “Sorghum Female.”
Fb= “Sign of women”.
Fc= “Sex of women”.
R, N= Mythical personages.
R= Yurugu, the Fox.
N= Nommo, the Fish. 
Hence, one transmission of energy from Sirius might follow this path:
Sirius > Leo > Regulus > Sol > Neptune > Venus > Earth.
This is a rather simple linear projection – in reality the true path would involve a series of triangles between planets, signs and constellations. Nevertheless, as mentioned earlier, Neptune is the esoteric or soul ruler of Leo, having a close connection to the Leonine heart. Within the solar system, the Neptune ‘scheme’ is esoterically regarded as a transmitter of the second ray of Love-Wisdom forces received from Sirius.)
Sirius is one source of cosmic mind, but by the time we receive these energies, we interpret them as Love-Wisdom. Hence, once liberated from Earth life and treading the Sirian Way, this Love-Wisdom will be integrated into the Sirian aspirant’s equipment – almost below the threshold of consciousness, similar to how the lower mind now serves this function in our lives.
Neptune is also Lord of the Oceans, cosmic and earthly, connecting to the Nommo (see diagram above), the spiritual guides of the fledgling human race – speculated by some to be a dolphin-like amphibious race from Sirius.
“… long before the days of Ad-am, and his inquisitive wife, He-va, where now are found but salt lakes and desolate barren deserts, there was a vast inland sea, which extended over Middle Asia, north of the proud Himalayan range, and its western prolongation. An island [in what is now the Gobi Desert], which for its unparalleled beauty had no rival in the world, was inhabited by the last remnant of the race which preceded ours.
“The last remnant” meant the “Sons of Will and Yoga,” who, with a few tribes, survived the great cataclysm. For it is the Third Race which inhabited the great Lemurian continent, that preceded the veritable and complete human races—the fourth [Atlantis] and the fifth [current western] …
“This race could live with equal ease in water, air, or fire, for it had an unlimited control over the elements. These were the ‘Sons of God’; not those who ‘saw the daughters of men’, but the real Elohim, though in the oriental Kabala they have another name. It was they who imparted Nature’s most weird secrets to men, and revealed to them the ineffable, and now lost ‘word.’
The “Island,” according to belief, exists to the present hour; now, as an oasis surrounded by the dreadful wildernesses of the great Desert, the Gobi—whose sands “no foot hath crossed in the memory of man.”
The planetary crown chakra known as Shamballa, is said to be located in this region, in the ethers, not physically.
Many Pathways for Sirian Forces
Sirian forces are associated with several signs and planets – Gemini, Cancer-Capricorn, Leo, Virgo and Scorpio, Venus, Mercury, Jupiter, Neptune, Uranus and Saturn. It stands to reason that these forces would be involved, as the solar system is the ‘child’ of Sirius, Sekhmet the child of Isis. (See pics at top of newsletter.)
The zodiac is a stupendous electro-magnetic mandala that transmits the forces of the seven rays, planets, fixed stars and constellations. The seven sacred planets within our solar system are the chakras – through which pass stellar forces that emanate from beyond the solar system. There are various triangles of energy between planets, signs and constellations that transmit Sirian energies to Earth, too involved to be adequately covered here.
Great care must be taken when invoking any astrological force, zodiac sign, planet or star, lest the naive aspirant finds themself ‘ill-equipped to handle’. One must be wary of going in gung-ho, over-zealous aspiration or even subtle spiritual ambition:
“The influence of Sirius is not consciously felt until after the third initiation when the true nature of the spirit aspect begins to dawn upon the liberated, intuitive perception of the initiate.”
Most of us are nowhere near this exalted stage of unfoldment, let alone the earlier second degree, a very advanced stage in itself, which for the majority is a goal over distant horizons. Yet, even if Sirian forces are ‘not consciously felt’, this does not prevent invocation, experimentation and the exercise of the intuition.
The safest way to participate in the invocation of Sirian energies is through group meditation; there are probably infinite ways to invoke the energies of Sirius that are as varied and vast as the human imagination. However, esoteric laws have been given and it is wise to adhere to certain pathways that can be visualised.
Sirius and the Egyptian Tradition
It has already been established that the Egyptian goddess Isis represents Sirius A, the brightest star. Sometimes her male consort Osiris is assigned as Sirius B, whilst their ‘son’ Horus as Sirius C. This Egyptian triplicity reflects all traditions of the Christian mother, father, son; the Hindu Brahma, Shiva and Vishnu etc.
Isis is also connected with Virgo, the signs Leo-Virgo creating the Mystery of the Sphinx. (See essay.) The annual reappearance of Sirius heralded the flooding of the Nile and the bounty of crops that could be harvested – hence Virgo, the sheaf of wheat. In The Egyptian Book of the Dead, Isis proclaims herself as Sirius:
“I am the Queen of these regions … I was the first to reveal to mortals the mysteries of wheat and corn. I am she who rises in the constellation of the dog … (Dog-star) Rejoice, O Egypt! thou who wert my nurse.”
Isis and Osiris also represent the constellations of Sirius and Orion respectively; two shafts of the Great Pyramid at Giza are aligned precisely to them: The King’s Chamber shaft to Orion and the Queen’s Chamber shaft to Sirius.
The Great Pyramid is well known as an electro-magnetic receiver-transmitter, due to its design and construction with crystalline granite materials; hence guiding spirit is brought into matter.
The pyramids at Giza are like major acupuncture points that serve (or served) for the inflow of energies from those constellations. Also, according to Robert Bauval, the three pyramids at Giza were perfectly designed to reflect Orion’s Belt – as above, so below:
” … we have demonstrated with a substantial body of evidence that the pattern of stars that is “frozen” on the ground at Giza in the form of the three pyramids and the Sphinx represents the disposition of the constellations of Orion and Leo as they looked at the moment of sunrise on the spring equinox during the astronomical “Age of Leo” (i.e., the epoch in which the Sun was “housed” by Leo on the spring equinox.) Like all precessional ages this was a 2,160-year period.”
In this scheme, our solar system is regarded as the unawakened heart centre, Sirius the ajna centre, Orion the solar plexus and Draco the base chakra. But of course this an area of highly speculative cosmology!
The Eye of Horus is a profound symbol, and represents many, many things. As the right eye it represents the Sun (Ra), as the reversed left eye, Mercury (Horus). Esoterically Mercury and the Sun are one, hence the Eye of Horus is the ‘lens’ through which the Sirian Logos ‘peers’ into our solar system. Therefore Mercury (also Thoth) has a close association with Sun-ruled Leo,
“Leo, being the fifth sign of the zodiac, counting from Aries via Taurus, and also the eighth sign, counting from Aries via Pisces, is closely connected through numerical affinity with Mercury, who is esoterically called “the Messenger at the eighth gate”; Mercury was active at the time of individualisation when the “eighth gate” was opened and a major initiation of our planetary Logos took place, producing, in the human kingdom, the process of individualisation.”
At Individualisation, Mercury was part of a triangle with Venus and the Earth, creating a magnetic field which made effective the intervention of the Great Lodge on Sirius.
