This is a unique moment in cosmic time each year that illuminates all of us in some vast way. The Sun is now conjunct the star Sirius.
The Sun begins its transit of 14 Cancer around 11:30 pm PDT July 4, 7:30 am BST July 5. It will occupy that degree until around 12:40 am PDT July 6.
This is a great moment each year when we can experience the Light and Wisdom of the Source of the Source. While it may or may not be registered by your 5 senses and your mind, it is still happening anyway. Why not ask what that Mystery means for you? You could find a type of wisdom.
What are you doing or thinking during this 25 hour span? We are told in the Sabian Symbols that the degree symbol for the 14th degree of Cancer is "A very old man facing a vast dark space to the northeast.” In The Astrology of Personality, where Rudhyar uses the original Jones class notes on the symbols, he states this is a degree of “fearlessness; and noble, self-perpetuating strength arising from knowledge” and “courage in the facing of spiritual problems.”
In The Astrological Mandala, he goes on to say that this degree symbolizes “fulfillment in transcending and changeless wisdom,” where “an archetypal figure” faces a direction symbolizing “the direction from which spiritual-cosmic forces enter the Earth-sphere.” He speaks of the 26,000 year “circumpolar cycle” associated with the precession of the Great Ages, as well as “the phenomenon of seasonal change.”
He continues that in the dawning of human existence there was allegedly “a perpetual spring” which is associated with a traditionally very high spiritual state. He offers “The Wise Old Man faces the Changeless Reality, the true North – which for us is located in a northeast direction. He faces the great Void, that apparent Darkness which is an intense Light invisible to our senses.”
He states this is a degree of a technique. “Implied is that by consistently and for a long time meditating on the changeless and spiritual reality at the very core of all experiences one can attain the supreme and age-old wisdom. We see in the symbol a way beyond appearances and toward permanence in truth.” He says this degree is in the Span of Expansion, and is the technical degree of the individual, mental, and spiritual Scene of Decision in the Act of Stabilization.
Dr. Jones tells us this is about “the immeasurable reaches of past experience as a strengthening of the human spirit for its immediate destiny, and of the eternal rebirth” where we can discover our “present aspiration and future achievement are without the slightest limitation.” He states “here is an absoluteness of self as a completeness of expectation,” and “there are no dark moments of outlook that cannot yield inspiration or assurance.”
He offers us the keyword SANCTION.” He says when this degree is operating positively, it represents “a highly effective enlistment of deeper and hidden elements of life for some momentary end.”
So here the Light shines a vast view of our limitless potential, and our ability to enlist the powers of Soul to find timeless Truth. We can find a fearlessness and “self-perpetuating strength arising from knowledge,” and see how our past experiences brought us to forms of “eternal rebirth” where we broke through old limitations by finding a new inspiration or assurance.
This degree is about a timeless, ageless Wisdom, and fearlessness in facing and embracing a “permanent Truth.” That’s because that degree is where the star Sirius has occupied for a long time. It has been said that Sirius is where the ageless Wisdom came from so that infant humanity might learn its Divine Estate. It is the source of ALL the world’s “wisdom traditions,” as revealed through Avatars, World Teachers, and all the Prophets, Sages, and other Holy Beings ever to walk our Earth.
This is a timeless Galactic Wisdom outside the bounds of our Solar System. This is the Light of “the Sun of our Sun.”
Anyway, please take a moment to reflect on your experience, both obvious and subtle, at this particular time. You may find a timeless wisdom and a direct Truth.
