Blessings to you as the Earth reaches that pivotal point in the Solar Year, wherein our Yellow One pauses on its arc before either descending from its perch high in our Northern Skies, or ascending out from its cradle in the Southern Skies.
Ingressing into the zodiacal sign of Cancer, or Cardinal Water, the iconography of the Scabbard Beetle adorned the walls of the Egyptian culture as they understood this time to be one of rebirth, especially ahead of the anticipated alignment of Sirius with Sol on the 4th and 5th of July. If you take time to look deeply into our Yellow Star as it rises, in an act of absorbing light into your eyes and opening the 3rd eye, you will see, when you close your eyes, beyond that of a blue-green figure with their arms outstretched, and the Sun being where the heart chakra is, a second sun emerging from behind that Sun. This is akin to the Sirius-Sun conjunction as our Sun and the deeper Sun that bathes ours in Spiritual Light align an in effect re-birthing the energy of our Star. T
The Egyptians saw this Cancerian Ingress as a time of rejuvenation and rebirth, as opposed as a crab, which became fashionable with the Greeks. The Scarab Beetle was considered to be sacred in this knowledgeable culture, and it was seen as a creature of immortality, connected to the god Khepri. In ancient Kemetic myths, Khepri was believed to push the setting sun along the sky, transforming bodies and souls in the same manner as the beetle rolls his dung into a ball (for the purposes of laying an egg), pushing it to the top of a sand ridge and allowing it roll down again to make it smooth, (a motion that corresponds to that of the Sun rising to its zenith in the sky at the Northern bendings or Solstice before descending again). The beetle’s actions were seen as an earthly symbol of this heavenly cycle.
And so on this Turning, the question to hold is what or who are you prepared to let go of, so that space is freed up to allow someone or something new to be born…
Blessings again to you and yours on this special day
