A Very Sirius Election: Lipstick on a Dog (Star)



We've seen how the iconography of the Obama and McCain campaigns incorporates different aspects of the Sirius glyph. We have the "star-making" joke equating herself with a dog (Pit Bull Terrier, in this case) that Sarah Palin recited at the Republican Convention, which reminds us that Sirius is the Dog Star and also that Sirius was equated with Isis:
The connection between Sirius and a dog may reflect the stars association with the destructive power of the goddess, universally symbolised by various predators of feline or canine origin (lions, tigers, panthers, wolves and hunting dogs in particular). In Greek culture this became the she-dog of Orion, the sublimated form perhaps. - wiki
Note that the GOP Convention was held very late this year, in the month of Virgo (though still within the Dog Days), furthering the goddess link.

Given this identification with Isis (which I have absolutely no doubt Palin is totally in the dark about), the incorporation of Sirius iconography in the two campaigns makes much more sense. As does this rising sun and wheel image that Palin finished her speech in front of.


Palin here is presented as Isis, giving birth to the Sun. No accident then that she was the mother of an infant child (though there remains controversy over that issue) and the mother of a pregnant 17 year-old. We also had the contrived lipstick on a pig controversy which, if nothing else, reminded the entire world that Palin identified herself with a dog during the Dog Days of Sirius.

  1. OK, that's good. Love the pitbull with lipstick shtick.

    So... Where does her 'theme song' Barracuda - by Heart come in? I know you've got an answer...

    Cheers, Michael

  3. Well if you take the legend of Oannes/Ea/Enki from the Sumerians you have a half man/half fish god rising out of the sea to teach the Sumerians their culture and technology. This is analogous to Dagon, the half-fish god of the Phillistines.

    The name Dagon is reminiscent of the African Dogon tribe, which allegedly revealed the existence of a third star in the Sirius binary system before there were telescopes to see it with. So there is a tenuous connection with Sirius stemming from the 'barracuda' reference.

  4. Considering that Palin is the "Goddess" currently sinking McCain's chances once and for all, I guess it could be said she is the fecund pitbull giving birth to the Sun.

  5. Velly intallesting... I'm also thinking that toothy fishes represent the Kali aspect of the Divine Feminine - a devouring she-devil, or perhaps the huntress, Diana.

    As of today, Obama is the "elect/annointed". Why are we replaying some ancient Egyptian myth, in exact detail? Herstory repeats?

    I'm thinking Pillow Pants, actually.

    "Why are we replaying some ancient Egyptian myth, in exact detail?"

    I get a feeling we're seeing a Roosters/Owls scenario with Obama. Is it Savior Time now, or does Oannes Son of Cain still need to more clearly play out his part in the drama? Maybe the final decision has not been made. Either way, it's out of our hands, for sure.

  7. Holy smokes- no sooner do I type the bit about the Roosters/Owls then I read than Saraswati says "this is not who we are!"
