Further to my earlier post today, I would like share with you the background behind Dog Star Astrology.
Canine mythology is embedded in stories of two constellations, Canis Major and Canis Minor. They are the two dogs of the night sky who surround and protect Orion The Hunter, who is just about to have an encounter with a bull. It is our job, the dogs’ job, to accompany Orion in his daily activities. We help him find food, we chase away his predators, and we make him laugh.
Three stars, one in each of these constellations, form an equilateral triangle: Sirius in Canis Major, Procyon in Canis Minor, and Betelgeuse in Orion. The triangle can represent harmony, family, support, and encouragement. As many other objects — planets and the like — travel through the universe, I shall be observing their ever-changing relationship to this triangle and will make my interpretations accordingly.
