Fixed Star Sirius

Canis Major Constellation [Stellarium]

The Sun joins Sirius on July 5

Fixed star Sirius, Alpha Canis Majoris, is a brilliant white and yellow star, the brightest star in the sky. It is positioned in the neck of Canis Major, the Greater Dog.

The naming of the fixed star Sirius, the Dog-star, derives from the Greek Σείριος Seirios (Sparking, Scorching). In Egypt it was Sothis, and is depicted with Jupiter in the Dendera Zodiac, as Jupiter was conjunct Sirius during the solar eclipse of 51 BC, the day that Cleopatra’s father died. The ancient Egyptian calendar was based on lunar cycles of around 30 days and on the helical rising of the fixed star Sirius.

Sirius Star Astrology

Fixed star Sirius is of the nature of Jupiter and Mars (high ambition, pride, love of power, grandeur of view.) It gives honor, renown, wealth, ardor, faithfulness, devotion, passion and resentment, and makes its natives custodians, curators and guardians. It also gives danger of dog bites, and two examples of this effect will be found under Procyon.

Sirius - Agrippa.png  Sirius is one of the 15 Behenian Fixed Stars. Its image is a hound or a little virgin. It gives honor, the goodwill and favor of men and the airy spirits, and the power to pacify nobles and others. Rules beryl, savine, mugwort, dragonwort and the tongue of a snake. [1]

Well connected, it promises fame, honors and riches. According to tradition, Sirius will give a famous death with honors beyond the grave, if positioned in the 8th house. In good aspect with Mars and Jupiter and close to the MC, promise is given of gaining extensive wealth, a lucky hand in commercial enterprise or matters of government. This star so placed is most excellent for military, lawyers and civil servants. Sirius in conjunction with the Sun and well placed in the chart will be found to be the case with numerous important and famous personalities. Possibly, the rise in station is made possible by protection from people of influence. [2]

Sirius marks immense creative talents in any field at all with ‘only’ the warning that there may be more inner power than can be safely managed. Harshly aspected it can show a psychotic person truly a menace to himself and the community, but in better condition we have here the star of the truly Great figures in every field of human endeavor. [3]

Sirius (our English “Sir” is derived from this word) was, by the ancients, always associated with great heat. And the hottest part of the year we still call “the dog days,” though, through the variation as observed in different latitudes, and the precession of the equinoxes, its rising has long ceased to have any relation to those days. Virgil says that Sirius “With pestilential heat infects the sky.”

Homer spoke of it as a star “Whose burning breath, Taints the red air with fevers, plagues, and death.” It is not, however, of its heat that its name speaks, but of the fact that it is the brightest of all the stars, as He of whom it witnesses is the “Prince of princes,” “the Prince of the Kings of the earth.”

Though this “Dog-Star” came to have an ill-omened association, it was not so in more ancient times. In the ancient Akkadian it is called Kasista, which means the Leader and Prince of the heavenly host. While (as Mr. Robert Brown, Jr, points out) “the Sacred Books of Persia contain many praises for the star Tistrya or Tistar (Sirius), ‘the chieftain of the East.'” (Euphratean Stellar Researches). [4]

Sirius rules the nipple of the right breast in the human body. [5]

Constellation Canis Major

Ptolemy states that the stars of this constellation, with the exception of Sirius, are like Venus. It is said to give good qualities, charity and a faithful heart, but violent and dangerous passions. There is some danger from, or fear of, darkness and the night, and liability to dog bites, though the latter characteristic is probably associated more particularly with Sirius. Canis Major is connected by the Kabalists with the Hebrew letter Tzaddi and the 18th Tarot Trump, “The Moon”. [1]

6th Arabic Manzil – Al-Han’ah

Favorable for hunting, besieging towns, and the revenge of princes, destroys harvests and fruits, and hinders the operation of the physician.

With Moon: Plough, sow, but do not travel.

22nd Chinese Xiù – 井 (Jǐng) Well

This is the head of the Phoenix. Associated with beauty, water, navigation at sea, hygiene, cleaning, repairs, and refurbishments. Because of the association of cleanliness with Godliness (virtue), this mansion also presides over law and order, moral uprightness and cleansing of moral wrongs.

The luck in this mansion is said to vary because of the conflict of the elements involved. Labor is rewarded, while idleness is sanctioned. It is good for taking exams, tending to herbivorous animals and all types of industriousness. It is very good for gardening and widows. Bad for funerals because of the risk of epidemics and sudden death, though, and all projects in progress should be worked on instead of being put aside.

Mars conjunct Saturn conjunct Sirius: These are persons who extend their ego into their children’s actions one day, and the next day, withdraw their support for what their children may be doing so that there would be an ego change back and forth. This affects the hormones on the diaphragm causing and overactive and underactive energy flow, so that the person feels energetic at times and ready to collapse at other times. Ultimately, a total restriction of energy would result, causing them to feel extremely tired. Consumption of oranges helps to balance the energy and oranges should be an important part of the diet. [5]

Jupiter conjunct Sirius: Business success, journeys, help from relatives, ecclesiastical preferment. [1]

This point develops large family ties for these individuals. It keeps them tied to the family circle, including all the relatives. They are generally born into a large family, and all those in the family circle are also interested in the large families themselves. Great emotional ties are developed so that whatever happens to one affects them all, and all respond with exaggerated emotions. [5]

Saturn conjunct Sirius: Steady, reserved, diplomatic, just, persevering, high position through friends, favorable for home, gifts and legacies, domestic harmony. [1]

There are difficulties in raising children with this energy point. There would be a coldness towards the children with little or no emotional attachment. They take care of their children but they do not display warmth in their relationship. This causes a restriction in the digestive juices in the stomach that leads to bloating. To alleviate this problem, these persons should chew celery before or after a meal as celery stimulates the digestive process. [5]

David Beckham 0°18′

Uranus conjunct Sirius: Gain and prominence in Uranian matters, help from influential friends, gain through harmonious marriage, especially if male, sudden death. [1]

This is not extremely difficult. It causes slight, sharp pains on the right side of the chest. They usually have many health checkups from the fear that they may be having heart problems but they are just wasting their time and money. It is merely an energy flow problem where the energy is restricted at times. These persons are usually misdiagnosed as having heart trouble and are put on restrictive diets so as to avoid cholesterol buildup and so forth. [5]

Neptune conjunct Sirius: Intuition, occult interests, religious, good organizing ability, success in mercantile pursuits, banks or corporations, many influential friends, favorable for gain and domestic matters, natural death. [1]

  1. I have Sirius in 4. No rich family. But I like to spend a lot of time at home and work at home in a home office. AC aries.
    I am libra.

  2. My Mc is at 14’24” Cancer….having Mercury 17 Saturn 23 and the Sun 28 in Cancer holding hands. No high Office yet lol but I always get the vibe of people looking at me with a certain look….is that why I felt and feel like a Pincess in my life? Hahaha this princess loves to clean and cook and take care of everything no matter where she turns too. Just being a bit bratty I guess but I do not need tittles nor miss them but I feel a certain way and others get that vibe of me also…..Anyone else?

  3. What about chiron conjunct sirius? my chiron is 14 degrees cancer. ty

  4. Hi Cheri ! Cancer and the 4th house have to do with nurturing , the mother , the home , as the place of refuge which you find comfort and emotional security.It also has to do with real estate.Chiron here would indicate a possible wounding in one of the areas I’ve just mentioned and an area that needs healing.I’m sorry to say that I can’t really define for you what this conjunction means.Maybe the things I’ve mentioned will give you some ‘ FOOD’ for thought , and you can apply it to some of the definition of sirius in this blog..
    Anyone want to chime in ? Have a good day !♍

      • you mean to say sun conjunct sirius will favor a person in sex war and business and anything ruled by mars will be favored i have studied that after 30 people start to get great results from fixed stars which are on their sun and moon

  5. I have Mars at 14°? Cancer, conjunct my 3rd house, with asteroids Logic and Industria within 1°. I have two questions.

    1. I am prone to forceful outbursts. What effect, if any, does Sirius add? Intensity?

    2. Mars opposes Jupiter and Saturn (the Saturn aspect is tighter). Does the star affect these aspects as well?

    Thank you for any light you can shed.

  6. Hi Jamie
    When is the heliacal rising of Sirius? And how can I look this up reliably, thanks! 🌟

    • Hi Katy. I think has some information on this. The only astrologer using this method is Bernadette Brady and I believe she sold her idea to them.

  7. Sorry, but the link of the 22nd Chinese Xiu refers to the fixed star Tejat Posterior, not Sirius.

    • Yes, that is correct. Tejat Posterior marks the beginning of the 22nd mansion. Sirius sits within that mansion. It does not mark the beginning of a mansion. This is because Sirius is about 16° south of the ecliptic. The fixed stars used to mark the moon mansions all sit along the ecliptic (path of the Sun), or Moon in this case.

  8. There’s so little online information about Sirius in the natal chart. Thanks a lot for this! I hold my heart for what’s about to come.. I have Sirius in my 10th house, 1 degree conjunct my IC. My moon/pluto conjunction trines it. My mercury/uranus/neptune conjunction on the IC are exactly opposite to the Sirius/MC. Since I heard the word sirius for the first time I felt I need to know more about this. Once I even saw my whole view in blue during the day, which now makes sense. And to be honest for my whole life I felt I have a world destiny. At the moment I’m working on several (audio)books which connect to the universal laws and the highest order of justis (which is different from justice). And what unconditional love in society is realy about. I can’t wait to spread my message for a wider audience and radiate as much love as I’m capable of.

  9. Oh interesting Nicky. I also have Sirius on the MC (13 degree). The other aspects involved you find in my comment above. As a kid I used to behave like a authorative princess. Then got extremely anxious in my youth and now as a adolescent the feeling returns. I recognize the look people have at you. Lately someone I saw only 4 times said to me at our goodbye: I’ll see you at nieuwsuur’. Which is the Dutch TV journal. It was not part of the subject and i didn’t respond but on my way home it felt very weird xD. With you mercury Conjunct the communication must be involved in your case. Well maybe see you later at a UN conference or something haha :’)

  10. Hi i have serius conjunct my lilith in the end of tenth house, what does this mean
