THE METAPHYSICAL SYSTEMS of Western astrology, esoteric astrology, and numerology combine to make this an especially powerful week.

Since late June, the fixed star Sirius has been rising with the Sun, its bright light hidden within the Sun's rays. Esoteric astrology tells us when the Sun and Sirius align, it amplifies and focuses the energies of the Second Ray that emanates from Sirius. The Second Ray works with the heart chakra and thymus gland (high heart chakra) and carries with it the qualities of Love and Wisdom.

Next week, Sirius will finally emerge from behind the Sun and start to be visible above the eastern horizon just before sunrise. This is called the heliacal rising of Sirius. Each year, the reemergence of Sirius is appropriately linked to the Sun's transit through the sign of Leo the Lion, the zodiac sign that rules our physical heart.
