The Keepers of the DAwn: Sirius & Venus
Both Sirius and Venus are emerging from the Solar Light, and rising just before dawn on the eastern horizon. Sirius rises first, and is further south of east on the horizon line. You will see the distinctive constellation Orion above. The belt stars of Orion act like a pointer line to Sirius, below the 3 star belt and cloudy nebula. Venus is brighter, and rises close to due east. It is visible for longer as well, being brighter.
When a star is close in the sky to the sun, we are not able to view it. When it moves out of the light sphere of the sunlight, and we can see it rising on its own again before dawn we are witnessing the Heliacal Rising. This revelation moment, the Heliacal Rising, is an age old important noted time by sky watchers. In Ancient sky watching cultures (which is all ancient cultures) the heliacal rising of stars was used a marker of time and a way to seat seasonal and annual calendars. The ancient sky watchers and shamans were the ones who guided and informed the people of the important dates and were "keepers" of the calendars, set by the skies. An important role would be the Keepers of the Dawn - to awake in the darkness and watch the skies. A clear open vista to an eastern horizon line was a precious potent important point of observation. Many a sacred site included a observatory temple space and often stone structure monuments to accentuate and highlight these celestial body rising - stars and planets, sun and moon risings.
Modern devices (calendars, moon charts, observatories) have made the role of rising and watching somewhat redundant. We can use the phones in our pockets to connect with many charts and data sets. The task of being the Watcher, the Keeper of the Dawn is less critical to village life and has largely faded. Yet, so many of us are remembering and re-awakening our innate skillsets as Celestial Shamans.
Many of us have this sky watcher tendencies encoded in our being. Where we feel the call to rise as Keepers of the Dawn. It is truly why some of these traditions of waking and connecting in the cosmos have permeated so many sacred practices and rituals. Because this time of the day has a potent opening or gateway quality which is precious and pure. the light that shines as day breaks is called brahmamuhurtha, the ambrosial hours, the amrit vela, the nectar of the gods, the honey of immortality. A similar ambrosial gateway exists at sunset.
As modern day Celestial Shamans, we rise at this hour for the love, the light, the joy of it. To connect with the cosmos. To receive inspiration and illumination. To uplift the soul!
In early September, The Keepers of the Dawn are graced with TWO important celestial bodies rising before dawn. Sirius and Venus. Both became potentially visible mid/late August. This visibility depends on your location, both longitude placement and sightline specific, as well as clear sky and weather influenced.
My region has been blessed with much moisture this summer, which includes copious cloud cover. I myself got my first clear glimpse of these celestial light beauties on September 1.
The pictures above I took on that special first sighting morning.
September 3 is of note as Venus & Sirius Cosmic Rising. Cosmic Rising is when two celestial bodes rise together. Venus completes a period of retrograde motion, and turns direct on September 3, so like a pendulum swing, that Venus turn direct point is as close as these two (Venus & Sirius) get together in the sky.
These two Celestial Beauties will grace our low east horizon early morning skies for the first few weeks of September. Get up early to catch a glimpse. This week Venus is rising around 4:20 am. Venus is brighter. Take note of Procyon, which triangulates between them. Use the pointer stars of Orion's Belt to track your way to Sirius. Venus in her diamond light will be obvious. Procyon is between them.
Mother Sun ~ Cosmic Birther ~ Venus Conjunction ~ Rising as Dawn Star 🌟 Birth of LIGHT 💫
Gives Birth to her children
They orbit around her, for she emanates the LIGHT of LIFE
From our vantage point on earth, with our naked eyes, we can see the light of these brother and sister planets. They are pinpoint brilliant lights in the sky. This planetary light, is a reflection of Sun LIGHT.
As we look to the skies, we see each of our sibling planets visit and join with Mother Sun regularly. Astronomers call these visits conjunctions. During a visit/conjunction, the planets are embraced fully by the mother sun glow, and become part of the daytime light. Not something we see at night.
Right now, Venus is in the embrace of the Mother Sun.
When Venus and Mother Sun get together, they beam brightly the codes of LIGHTBIRTHER
Venus as Cosmic Mother
Sun as Cosmic Grandmother
Mother Sun provides a flow of
Life Force - Prana
Heat - Warmth
Fire- Sight - Rainbow Illumination
Mother Sun is a Plasma Birther, a Light Birther
Bubbling forth with flares, plasma waves, and solar codes
Venus as Cosmic Birther
Learns much from Mother Sun during this conjunction visit
And the cycle begins again
A Venus Cycle begins with Venus as a prominent evening star. It begins a period of retrograde motion that lasts for about 40 days, the midpoint a conjunction with the sun. It sets closer and closer to sunset until it joins the sun in the sky and becomes invisible to us for a period of 8 days. During this transformative 8 days in the dark primal creation field of the underworld, Venus makes a shift from evening to morning star. When seen again on the eastern horizon at dawn, she is rebirthed as The Cosmic Divine Mother aspect. For 9 months Venus rises before the Sun in her morning star phase. During this part of the cycle, we can consider her in Dawn Star Mother Mode. Gestating Life within. Note that the length of time of this phase of the Venus cycle correlates to the length of time of human gestation.
As you embody this Venus cycle process, you may become “impregnated” with new LIGHT. Holding new light in your cosmic womb is a sacred act.
The Rise of Venus as Dawn Star on the eastern horizon signals the go window to BIRTH your visions and inspirations, to birth your NEW LIGHT.
LIGHTBIRTHERS are we!

2023 Celestial Alignments
The Dog Days of Summer (Northern Hemisphere)
CYCLES OF SIRIUS
Sirius, the twinkling bright disco ball star is prominent in the winter evening northern hemisphere sky, It dips lower and lower every night of spring, until it begins to join the sun, rendering it "invisible" to us, as it comes close to the sun in the daytime sky. We are in that part of the cycle now, Sirius is a "daytime star" - and thereby not visible to us humans here on earth.
The last time we can see Sirius, low in the western sky just after sunset is early/mid May. This last time you can see a star (or planet) in the twighlight sky is called the Heliacal Setting. Heliacal means "near the sun". The date varies by your latitude - and for the whole globe it is Mid May this year. At my 42 degrees, this year it was around May 3-5.
Other poignant Celestial Stargate of note are the Cosmic Setting and Cosmic Rising. This is when two celestial bodies set or rise at the same time. On August 4, 2023 - The Sun & Sirius rise together !! (the day I am writing this blog). The Sun & Sirius set together May 28, 2023.
Heliacal Rising is the moment we can see a celestial body (star/planet) rise just before sunrise on the eastern horizon. Just like the setting - this is subjective to your location and vistas - and most of the globe sees them within a week of each other. In 2023 - the Heliacal rising of Sirius takes place during the window of August 14-17 ish. For my location, i have my target date of August 16 to being to look. While some of this can be "predicted" it is a real time moment, you being awake and looking at a clear line of eastern horizon - and weather and could cover and such. It is a sacred special moment of connection right to the Star itself.
This year - we have another celestial light player - the bright planet Venus - adding in the cosmic dance party.
Venus is with the sun in the sky now too - and conjuncts close on August 13. The Sun, New Moon & Venus rise together (Cosmic Rising) on August 16.
The early mornings before dawn through the end of August - we will be able to see BOTH Sirius & Venus low on the eastern horizon (and higher every day) - a very special celestial treat!
VENUS WITH PLEIADES, The Hathors Sing
The Ecliptic (the path of the sun and the planets across the sky) passes through the constellation Taurus, and right between two star clusters The Pleiades (M45) & The Hyades (M25) and Aldebaran. They form pillars or guardians on each side of the ecliptic, creating a gateway.
In April 2023, Venus is moving across the sky through this gateway.
Venus enters the Taurus constellation on April 7
Then moves closer to the Pleiades each night, making a close approach April 9 – 15
Look to the western sky at or just after sunset, and sparkling Venus will dominate the sky. As the twilight sky darkens, other stars will emerge into view. Further to the left you will see bright Sirius, and between Sirius and Venus is Orion. Best viewing of Venus and The Pleiades is after the sky turns dark, early evening. They set by 10:30 pm. You can see with your naked eyes, but a set of binoculars or telescope will enhance the details. I took these pictures with my iPhone on April 9, 2023.
The Planet Venus transmits the codes of the Hathors. The Hathors are masters of sound and tone. They communicate through vibration and frequency.
They made themselves known to me in 2017, and we have been spending time together since. They have guided me to expand my own vocal toning capabilities. When we remember about sound technologies used by ancient civilizations on our planet, we are remembering and revealing Hathor sound and light technologies.
This channel of information came through me in my initiation phase with the Hathor Collective in May 2017:
“We are the beings of pure light, radiance and luminosity. We live/originate in a universe far removed from your own. Removed in space and time and dimension.
We entered your universe through the portal at Sirius. From there we traveled to your solar system and felt most at home vibrationally with Venus, so there we set up a base. We live there still, and have been waiting for you to notice, remember and communicate with us.
As beings of pure light and vibration, it takes subtle skills for humans to see and hear us. We realized the interface between our light and your embodiment was through the sound current. We have several channels on earth at this time who can hear us clearly and send our messages. Seek them out. We are here for you and have been thru time and space for eons.”

Tom Kenyon is a phenomenal Hathorian Communicator, and has paved the way for so many of us, I will direct you to his website for more amazing intel, and include an excerpt below from his page “Who Are the Hathors”.
“We are the Hathors. We come in love and with the sounding of a new dream reality for your earth. If you are ready to build the new world, we invite you to join us on a journey of the mind and heart. We are your elder brothers and sisters. We have been with you for a very long period of your evolution on this planet. We were with you in eons past – even in the forgotten days before any trace of us is known in your present written history. Our own nature is energetic and interdimensional. We originally came from another universe by way of Sirius which is a portal to your Universe, and from Sirius we eventually proceeded to your solar system and the etheric realms of Venus.
In the past we have specifically worked with and through the Hathor fertility goddess of ancient Egypt. We also made contact with Tibetan lamas in the formative period of Tibetan Buddhism. Although we have interacted with some of Earth’s early cultures, we are an intergalactic civilization with outposts that span parts of your known Universe and beyond.
We are what you might term an ascended civilization – a group of beings existing at a specific vibratory field, even as you have an energy signature. It is simply that we vibrate at a faster rate than you. Nonetheless, we are all part of the mystery, part of the love that holds and binds all the universe together.
We have grown as you have grown, ascending to the One Source of all that is. We have grown in joy and through sorrow, as have you. We are, in terms of the vastness, a little higher on the spiral of awareness and consciousness than you are; therefore, we can offer you what we have learned as friends, mentors and fellow travelers on the path that leads back to remembrance of All That Is.”
The very best way to connect to the Hathors is via their sound coding. This video conveys a video I recorded of the flashing rainbow light of Venus & the Pleiades (faint and above to the right) – set to vocal toning of the Hathors.
