Fixed Star Sirius

Canis Major [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. Apparent magnitude −1.46. Spectral type A0mA1 V.

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 Astrology

Sirius is of the nature of Jupiter and Mars. 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. [1]

α Canis Majoris. A binary, white and yellow star. The main star belongs to spectral class A l. It has a companion star, Sirius ‘B,’ a white dwarf star that rotates around the main star every 50 years. This is a dwarf star having 90,000 times the density of our Sun. Sirius has twice the diameter of our Sun and is 9 light years distant.

The native is ambitious, loves to exercise ‘power,’ and has a grandeur of outlook. Good for business prosperity, custodial guardian, honors, wealth, and renown. Native receives favors from superiors and friends. Questionable writings, speeches, and statements could bring latent honors. Negatively: Native is subject to problematical actions, accusations, just or unjust. [8]

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]

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]

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]

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]

High business preferment, high government preferment. Successful ventures and considerable traveling. Natives with this conjunction attract friends. Some of these natives may engage in very unusual occupations. [8]

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]

Bonnie Parker 0°16′, Warren Buffett 0°31′, James Dean 1°31′, Billie Eilish 1°41′, Bobby Fischer 1°52′, Marguerite de Navarre 2°29′, Rupert Murdoch 2°39′

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′, Drew Barrymore 1°27′, Mary Shelley 1°43′.

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]

Marie Curie 0°27′ (and DC), Robin Williams 2°34′ (and Mars)

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]

Frida Kahlo 0°23′ (and Sun), Ed Gein 0°47′, Vera Atkins 0°58′ (and Mars).

Pluto conjunct Sirius: Marilyn Monroe 0°20′, Elizabeth II 0°21′, Hugh Hefner 0°26′, Jimmy Carter 0°29′, Charlton Heston 0°39′, Malcolm X 1°03′, Lorraine Warren 1°15′, Linda Goodman 1°35′, George H. W. Bush 1°40′, Margaret Thatcher 1°41′, Bob Dole 1°49′ (and Venus), Che Guevara 2°18′.

North Node conjunct Sirius: Prince William 0°29′, Priyanka Chopra 1°07′ (and Mercury), Patch Adams 2°21′, Brad Pitt 2°25′, Adolf Hitler 2°32′.

92 thoughts on “Fixed Star Sirius

      • I have just read your article on “Sirius Star-Sparkling,” and it is fascinating. I was realy interested in the Dendereh Zodiac. “In Egypt it(Sirius) 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 day Cleopatra’s father died, interests me. Having read “Cleopatra-A Life” by Stacy Schiff, I know that when he died, Cleopatra immediately became queen-ata a very young age. The eclipse would be the start of her reign, more or less. Jupiter is highly relevant-she was a very skilled politician-an optimist and survivor, with a flair for oratory and drama, generous, and for a long time, very very lucky. She spoke 9 languages, and was very much a part of the intellectual life of Alexandria. Of course, we don’t know her birth sign-it was likely Capricorn or Aquarius. But it’s amazing to get that little bit of astrological insight and flavour of events long ago provided by the Dendereh Zodiac, and the 51 BC. eclipse. Do you know the date of that eclipse?
        Fixed stars and eclipses might be relevant to the Republican nomination. Do any of the main hopefuls have strong fixed star placements in their charts? One gets the impression that in spite of changes in political systems, the old planetary characterisations still hold true.

      • Thanks a lot! It makes sense because I worked for almost 10 years as a teacher for adults on very high business positions and hated it, it is not a profession I chose for myself, it was a series of unfortunate events. I think I am done with that and I hope my next job will be in entertainment industry, meaning I am done with delays.

  1. ‘Just found your site! My natal Cancer Uranus is 15 (9th); my Cancer MC is 18 (10th) The Uranus conjuncture with Sirius rings totally true for me… all of it. I appreciate your great information!

  2. I would say overall, I have been lucky. As far as money goes, I play the lottery and win (mostly free plays, $10-20).

  3. Hi Jamie ,

    A great website you made. I wanted to ask if you could give a more spiritual perspective on star constellations. I know that all celestial objects all in actual living entities which are developing themselves cycle after cycle.

    I’m greatly interested about some background information of stars as Sirius, Pleiades, Ursa major – how they came into being and they will eventually become in the end. I mean humans and spiritual living entities are on a road to self mastery and perfection. What is the end result everyone is walking towards? Is it true that duality can o only be exp experienced on earth??

    • Wow, good question Lawrence. Everything came from the big bang so everything from the stars to our DNA has an energetic link. Now the scientists say that prodding one subatomic particle will affect another linked one over vast distances faster than the speed of light. This would be one more explanation of how astrology works through the Stars and Planets, but not Signs and Houses. We once called the stars angels. messengers of the Gods. But I think it is more likely that the planets act as conduits for energy emanating from the stars. Iron is an excellent conductor of electromagnetic energy. The massive single crystal of Iron in the earth’s core is an excellent conductor of the ever-changing mix of energies from the stars via the planets. Iron in our bodies will feel the changing dynamic in the core.

  4. Hi, I have Sirius conjunction MC by less than one degree. I feel I have potential but I am usually confused about my life’s direction…and I haven’t got any of the “fame and honors” regarding my career. But at least gives me hope!

  5. Can you please give me some incite to Sirius Paran ones Jupiter at 23 Degree Cancer ,
    I have never studied these Stars in Astrology it is a fascinating addition and I hope to learn more.
    From what I have gathered a Star Paran a planet 45 degree angle is powerful or is the Aspect only powerful when on the actual angles of the horoscope ?
    Also while I have you here and might as well pick your brain would a transiting moon paran ones natal Jupiter be good for gambling ? or would pluto be better ? The whole Paran 45 degree aspect has my brain in a actual uproar. to be honest , square for action so it does make rational sense.
    Ps, Keep up the good work on the site .

  6. Hi, I have an unaspected Sun conjunct Lilith and Sirius, and I cannot find any information on what Lilith brings to that combination. Just curious. Thank you.

      • Ok! My Moon is 1 degree Aries in the eighth house. That looks a bit like a loose conjunction to Sheat. I have always felt that I would die “in motion”… as in an accident or a fall… I have been told to stay away from deep water voyages, and I have two beautiful very large dogs. Ha! My interest in my Natal Chart is leading me to weird places. Thanks for the suggestion.

  7. Jamie, what about opposition to Sirius? This October 2016, we will see transit Pluto Capricorn and transit Mars Capricorn (conjunct one another) opposite Sirius conjunct the USA’s natal Sun in Cancer.

    • Interesting question Rav. I think Mars Pluto on Vega will keep it’s own energy apart from Sirius. The exception would be if a planet were to align with Sirius. You do need a planetary conjunction to activate the energy of a star.

  8. This makes sense, Katie Couric’s Midheaven at 13′ Cancer would conjoin the USA’s Sun and Sirius, tho 11:55 pm time is not verified. From “COURIC: In the night. I was born almost at midnight. I almost didn’t make it. I was almost the eighth [of January].”,_Katie
    Tx for the article 🙂

    • Thanks for this too Lisa. I am eventually going to add celebrities to these pages for each planet and AC, MC.

  9. Susan Boyle’s Mars is at 13′ Cancer, it makes sense her success was delayed because she also has Venus square Saturn

    • She also had Pluto conjunct Part of Fortune transit when she shot to fame. Worth keeping an eye on that transit. I had it when my first astrology website became successful.

    • What’s so bad about Venus square Saturn? I understand it inhibits romantic expression, but I wasn’t aware of any major effects on general ‘success’?

      (curious because I have that aspect in addition to Sun conjunct Sirius)

      • Venus square Saturn can hinder success if it leads to depression. Sun on Sirius will overpower that effect to an extent, depending on how tight the orb of aspect is.

  10. What about it conjunct the IC? I have my IC weirdly enough exactly at 14’05 Cancer. Chiron is at 13’12 cancer

    • Perhaps well bred or born into a wealthy or successful family. A caring and loyal family. This may only apply to one specific parent. Chiron there is a bit weird and suggests some karmic pain linked to the family or ancestors. Maybe some tragedy affecting a whole generation. If linked to Pluto then even a genetic disorder.

      • I was born into I think a lucky and wealthy family. I do have Pluto at 12’32 in Scorpio actually, don’t know if that’s strong enough. I only knew about Chiron there before. Do you think it could represent bringing the two ancestor sides together?
        Opposite the MC, will it affect my career or not at all?

        • I also have Jupiter widely conjunct at 3 Cancer and I thought that was too wide but reading the description it kind of fits too with the family ties theme

        • You definitely have Pluto sextile MC and this is good for both a promising career and higher development of family ties.

          Fixed stars only work in conjunction so your MC is not affected by Sirius, but the fixed star Vega.

    • The I.C/ nadir not only applies to ancestry matters but in applying fixed stars to a natal chart it also represents the end of the matter, end of life, life work we are remembered for. Any star conjunct the i.c will manifest its energy in old age & hidden. Think of roots of a tree or plant; they are buried beneath. Also Sirius is a very hot star & it’s energy provided must find an outlet or it “burns”. So maybe there is a “burning” issue that lies at the root of a family problem or has been inherited. It may affect you more consciously or be perceived by you on a more conscious level than the rest of your family. You may feel either an inner wounding from such which you may hide or it may take many years to realize a buried wounding within you.either way chiron being the wounded healer, may have picked you out of your family & assigned you the task of bringing the issue out into consciousness for healing for the family. Maybe because you feel it more deeply I don’t know. Maybe there is no family issues but instead in your latter years you get involved with some kind of healing field of work in which you have an opportunity to be well known for either among your family or community, or status. Cancer is a nurturing sign it may be a healing career either of a cancerian or Capricornic nature. With sirius being such a powerful star in our universe, the effort applied could bring gain for good or I’ll much greater than you’d expect. So for best results have a PURE UNSELFISH intention /effort rather than a selfish one or the result could get you ” burned”. Just a thought take it or leave it.

  11. My natal Sun is conjunct Sirius.

    I was wondering if anyone knows what the interpretation means when it states in the ‘Sun conjunct Sirius’ section:
    “If rising or culminating, kingly preferment.” ?

    I have researched the matter a bit because I see it in other interpretations as well. Yet, I do not understand what the ‘Rising’ and ‘Culminating’ can possibly mean. Since there are very few sources on fixed star interpretations besides the book cited on this website, I am stuck.

    Could ‘Rising’ mean positioned at the beginning of the orb, and ‘Culminating’ mean towards the end of the orb, sort of like a cusp at the beginning and end of the orb?

    But there is also very little information about the orb of the fixed stars, and from what I have gathered in my research, a 2’40 degree orb for the brightest star in the sky (Sirius) is radically underestimating its astrological influence. It seems that up to 6 degrees may exert a sizeable influence, but the orb is certainly greater than 2’40 degrees. Since this is the case, it would be difficult to determine what ‘Rising’ and ‘Culminating’ mean in the context of a fixed star, since the exact orb is up for debate.

    Can anyone well-versed in medieval astrological vernacular help me out on this one?

  12. ohhh about the metal.. i recieve msgs about the metal a while ago hehe cool.. thanks 🙂

  13. Hi Jamie, would you say i have Sirius conjunct the ascendant if it is 3 degree’s apart in the 12th house?
    If so, what would be your interpretation of Sirius rising?

    Cheers 🙂

  14. Hello! I have a Sirius conjunct Descendant/ opposite Ascendant exact (orb 0 04”). I was wrapping my head about the possible meanings of that. Is it about a partner who’s known? Attraction towards ” famous” people?
    Thank you!

    • Yes, could be. The DC can also be seen as you inner man (for a woman) or inner woman (for a man), or what you ideally want in a partner, if not exactly what you get in a partner. It could also mean that you partnerships, intimate and business, are very successful. Also, think about the general influence of Sirius as “custodians, curators and guardians”.

      • Well my crush hasn’t stopped, it intensified. What a cruel thing to have sirius on descendant as well as a venus square saturn and chiron in 7th house. No chance in hell whatsoever with my celeb crush so there’s that. Here’s to hoping the same traits, quirks and personality that I like so much about them would be similar to someone from real life that can meet and connect with. Else I’ll just die alone, I guess.

  15. I have Sirius conjunct my MC, which is exactly trine to Jupiter in Pisces. Interestingly when Pluto opposed my MC I had to deal with a former mentor attacking me at work because she felt like I rose too far too fast and resented me for it. Luckily the turbulence has blown over now, but it was very difficult to deal with at the time. (I see that you mention the potential for resentment with Sirius.)

    Also when my progressed Moon was conjunct MC/Sirius earlier this year, I received a lot of praise and attention for an extra-curricular project I did at work. I haven’t had an easy life necessarily, but since reaching adulthood I seem to succeed at my academic/career endeavors in ways that get me noticed.

    Thanks for the article — it’s very helpful!

    • Hi Rose. For the Nodes with fixed stars I always combine the interpretation for the Sun and Moon. So success in business seems to be your karmic path.

  16. what would you consider a proper orb for Sirius? And what would Mercury square Neptune signify to you? I always considered this aspect to be troublesome mentally and associated with psychological problems as well as the deceiver?

  17. What does this mean? Sirius in the first house in cancer, with Pluto trine, a square with lilith, conjunction with mars, opposition with saturn and neptune… thank you 🙂

  18. I have Sirius conj my Jupiter in the 4th, which is the ruler of my midheaven. I do not feel close family ties. Nor, do I have a lot of financial success ( No planets in the 10th except for Juno).. With Jupiter in the 4th, I have worked for a real estate agent, have had Spiritual gatherings in my home, Done home health care and cleaned houses, (self employed). I do not tend to be career oriented. So, how can I relate to Sirius conj my Jupiter in a different way? Thanks.

    • Just wanted to clarify that “Sir” does not come from Sirius as stated in this article but from “Sire” ultimately derived from the latin for Senior.

    • Funny. I know my answer is a few years to late, but I just read, home, home, home 🙃 all you’ve done was connected to home. I am sure your access will be in this field and will come.

  19. 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.

  20. 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?

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

  22. 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

  23. 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.

  24. 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.

  25. 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.

  26. 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.

  27. 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 :’)

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

  29. My natals: Born July 6, 1982
    Sun 14° cancer…10th House
    Moon 18° capricorn…4th House (Full BLOOD moon* Total eclipse)
    North node 13° cancer…10thH.
    MC @ 11° cancer
    Asc @ 9° libra + stellium 1stH. with Pluto, Saturn, Jupiter & Mars
    Merc & Venus in gemini 9thH.
    Same bday as the current Dalai Lama***

  30. How is that? Same for the north node and the south one? It should be different I suppose.

  31. Hello Jamie. what are your thoughts on Sirius being square the Moon? Sirius in the 12th and the Moon on the cusp of the 9th? Would love to hear your thoughts?

    • Hi Marie. I have read from various sources that fixed stars only work in conjunction. I have not researched it myself. But if a transiting planet were on Sirius, it would affect how you experience that square to your Moon.

  32. May I ask Jamie, how about professed Sun @ 13 degrees Cancer about to conjunct Sirius over next few years in Natal 11th House? Thank you for your wonderful site and if you get opportunity to answer. John Henry

  33. Hi there,
    I have Ceres 14*06’ cancer (conjunct Serius) – can anyone tell me how that would play out. I can’t find anything about it.

    With gratitude,
