Looking  back to days of olde,

a plethora of stories unfold,

Worship of sun, stars, moon and skies,

seeing Gods and Goddesses divine.

Folklore tells of the Dog Star “Sirius”

as ‘watchman’ over heaven’s abyss.

Protecting the bridges of Milky Way

it has been said, right up to this day.

Over ancient aeons, of time,

shamans and neolithic tribes,

prayed to a big ‘Blue White Star”

closest to earth, in realms afar.

Rising and setting with the sun,

bright beacon, in night sky, is the one.

Light bearing and symbolic of power,

the cosmos, planetary endow’er.

Using Orion’s Belt, as a map,

three stars downwards, bottom left,

a stairway to eternal realms, they suggest.

Just nine light years, away,

Sirius is the closest star to earth, NASA conveyed.

Look within the jaws of the Great Dog, Canis Major,

more than twice, the size of the sun,

twenty times more radiant, is the ‘One’

Egyptian, Aboriginal and Dogon tribes,

still continue to have their views of this,

As the rainbow colours, twinkle and change,

folk see Sirius as UFO, carrying aliens.

How did an African tribe come to possess advanced astronomical knowledge about the Sirius star system?

Throughout history, many civilizations were fascinated with Sirius, the Dog Star. This bright celestial object occupies an elevated status in various mythologies but none paint a more intriguing picture than the Dogon Tribe of West Africa. 

In Scandinavia, the star Sirius has been known as Lokabrenna

(” burning done by Loki”, or “Loki’s torch”  which literally means “burning done by Loki.”

Cu or Dog, represents a Celtic Totem animal that has the powers of guidance, protection and loyalty.

the tradition of the dog as animal guide and guardian of the 
mysteries in Celtic culture is very old.

It is associated with the Dog Star ~Sirius that rises and sets with the Sun. Although white to blue-white in colour, Sirius might be called a rainbow star, as it often flickers with many colours.

With a wag of their tail, they show you their hearts.

a loyal companion, a true and dear friend,

forever by our side, from beginning to end

In the Celtic tradition, a dog is held in high esteem

other wise known as our custodians, of magic and all mysteries.

Dog was an endearment given to heroes, chiefs and warriors

as in Celtic lore, “Cu” was the prefix, heralding most honour.

The dog ‘Cu’ stands at the brink of birth, death and soul

carrying his loved ones across, life’s thresholds.

as a true spirit, bodyguard and ally guiding us back home.

Gods and goddesses, from way back when,

were depicted besides their dogs as their faithful friends

protecting and guiding, beloved souls of the dead

when leaving this world, to enter the next.

As the unconscious of our dreams,

life after death, is not what it may seem.

finding our healing and immortality there,

entering our next passage, into the beyond , we must fare.

Cu brings guidance and protection, acting as a loyal companion and 
friend on your journey in both this life and the next. If our 
intentions are good, then Cu will lead us over the threshold 
through darkness and the waters of the unconscious toward the 
shimmering realm of the Goddess.~ The Druid Animal Oracle ~
