Book Back Cover:

Esoteric astrologer M. Temple Richmond's Sirius offers a fresh look at the spiritual significance and astrological influence of this important and widely recognized fixed star. Drawing from the literature of the Ageless Wisdom tradition, the text demonstrates that Sirius:

  • Radiates the qualities of universal love and intuition
  • Functions as part of a vast cosmic heart center
  • Is linked with universal and cosmic principles, such as the laws of Karma and Periodicity
  • Is the Great Star of Initiation, the origin of Hierarchy, and the home of the Masonic Tradition
  • Manifests as the Principle of Freedom
  • Reveals the distinction between good and evil through divine discriminating conscience
  • Enhances the server's ability to cooperate with Hierarchy and the Plan
  • Acts through an intricate system of astrological intermediaries

At 420 pages in length, the text is abundantly illustrated and footnoted, and includes a comprehensive glossary of esoteric terms. Astrologers, Masons, Theosophists, and enthusiasts of the Alice Bailey literature will all delight in the revelations to be found in Sirius.

"Let us, therefore, enter humbly and reverentially into meditative contemplation of Sirius, the custodian of occult mystery, for in contemplating this great star-being, we encounter a sacred source of transcendence."

       -- M. Temple Richmond
