Connect with Orion During the Orion Alignment

From June 7th until June 20th the Sun and the Earth will all be in perfect alignment with Orion.  This alignment occurs when Orion is conjunct with the Sun.  From December 7 until December 20th, Orion is opposite the Sun.  Both of these astrological alignments can be used to connect with Orion.

The Orion Alignment occurs twice a year when the Sun and the Earth line up with the Orion constellation.  The conjunct alignment occurs when Orion appears to be located behind the Sun from Earth’s relative position.  This alignment occurs in June and is the Sun Conjunct Orion Alignment.

The second alignment occurs from December 7th until December 20th.   This is the Sun Opposite Orion Alignment and this occurs when Orion appears to be on the opposite side of the Sun, relative to the Earth’s position.

During the Orion alignment, Orion energies are felt very strongly on Earth as the energies are compounded with the energies of the Sun.  During this time, Orion energies permeate almost everything on Earth.  It’s a good time to initiate new endevours and do the physical work required to manifest your goals.

Orion Starseed Karma Integration

Orion energies tend to be invigorating and motivating and often provide the inspiration and determination to intiate projects and see them through to the end.   This alignment is also analagous to the New Moon, and thus planting the seeds of intention at this point will be extremely helpful.  These Orion energies will be especially helpful when trying to achieve goals that are rooted in the 3D physical realm – like material wealth, survival and reproduction.

Orion starseeds may enjoy spiritual downloads, upgrades and other forms of communication with Orion.  During the direct or conjunct Orion alignment that occurs in June, starseeds that wish to receive these Orion energies are recommended to meditate outside with the Sun beating down on their Crown or Third Eye Chakras.  Starseeds may also charge water, crystals and other items in the sunlight to charge these objects with Orion energy.

Alignments with Stars within Orion

Rigel – the conjunct alignment occurs on June 7 and the opposite alignment occurs on December 7

Bellatrix – the conjunct alignment occurs on June 11 and the Orion alignmentopposite alignment occurs on December 11

Mintaka (Orion’s belt) – the conjunct alignment occurs on June 13 and the opposite alignment occurs on December 13

Alnilam (Orion’s belt) – the conjunct alignment occurs on June 14 and the opposite alignment occurs on December 14

Alnitak (Orion’s belt) – the conjunct alignment occurs on June 15 and the opposite alignment occurs on December 15

Betelgeuse – the conjunct alignment occurs on June 20 and the opposite alignment occurs on December 20

Sun Opposite Orion Alignment

This Orion alignment occurs in December and results in Orion appearing to be on the opposite side of the Earth from the Sun.  During this time, Orion is visible in the night sky in the northern hemisphere.

People wishing to utilize these Orion energies in December can do night time meditations outside under the starlight.  Try to position yourself so that the Orion constellation is directing over head or so that you are facing it.

This Orion opposite Sun alignment will be particularly beneficial to those Orion starseeds that have unintegrated Orion energy.  People born under the Orion opposite Sun alignment will likely have some unintegrated Orion energy.  Unintegrated Orion energies tend to manifest as difficulties in achieving material wealth, being inspired and maintaining motivation.  Orion starseeds with unintegrated Orion energies are likely to have a weak will power and are likely to have some solar plexis issues.  However, this energy can be integrated during this time as well.

How To Connect With Your ET Spirit Guides

I’ve been asked many, many times to describe a good method for connecting with your ET spirit guides and I thought I’d answer it here, in a post.

We all have spirit guides that are available to us when we need them and yes, we may have more than one.  I have two that have been with  me for my whole life, one my great grandmother and the other is an Arcturian, my ET spirit guide.

To be honest, I can’t remember a time in my life where I haven’t been able to feel a connection with my spirit guides.  As a child I was taught that our ancestors are always able to aid us in our spiritual journey, all we needed to do was ask.  The traditional protocol was to take a handful of tobacco and walk into the bush until you feel comfortable speaking out loud.  You will find a comfortable place to sit and lay the tobacco on the ground.  Then you would ask your question to your ancestor and wait for the answer.  I suppose it was easier for a child to learn to meditate to connect with guides because I’ve just always been able to do it.  However, not everyone was taught from a young age and some can find it difficult to connect with their ET spirit guides using only meditation.

My ET spirit guide taught me a method to connect with a Pleiadian guide last spring and I’d like to share it with you today.  This method considers astrological alignments and incorporates the native american medicine wheel.  I used this method on my birthday, May 17th and received the very information I use to interpret birth charts for starseed alignments!    That meditation and the information I received from it, conceived this whole website.

I had been aware of traditional american naming conventions that consider the position of the stars at the time of birth.  For example, if there is a significant star or constellation overhead or rising on the east horizon at the time of a child’s birth – they will be named after that star.  Also important is when significant constellations, like the Pleiades “disappear” behind the sun and are no longer visible in the night sky.  Children born during these alignments are typically named after the star or constellation.

Find your starseed markings in your birth chart using my ebook The Starseed’s Compass: A Guide to Identifying Your Soul’s Origins.  The ebook lists starseed alignments for 12 star systems!

Astrological alignments are useful when you are trying to connect with ET spirit guides.  When the sun and the earth are in line with a star system, it is easier to connect with an ET spirit guide from that star system.  So for example, if you wanted to connect with a Pleiadian guide, you would attempt to do so on May 16-20 when the sun and earth are in line with the Pleiades.  On these days, the Pleiades will appear to be behind the sun, so where ever the sun is in the sky, that’s where you’ll find the Pleiades.  It is best to meditate in the daytime during the Pleiades alignment in May to best optimize your results.  I like to incorporate my native traditions, so I always meditate when the sun (and therefore the Pleiades) is directly above my head or when I am watching the sun set or rise.  If you meditate when the sun is directly overhead, focus on your crown chakra during the meditation.  If you meditate while you are watching the sun set or rise, focus on your third eye.

The earth and the sun are also in line with the Pleiades in November when the sun is in opposition to the Pleiades.  During this time, meditation should occur at night under the stars.  Locating the Pleiades star cluster in the sky and orientating yourself so that the star cluster is either directly above your head or so that you are facing the star cluster as it rises above the horizon or sets below it.

The medicine wheel is constructed out of granite rocks containing ET spirit guidesquartz veins (at least in my part of the world) and is essentially a large grid that is orientated towards the four directions.  The medicine wheel can be used to orientate oneself to the cosmos.  Constructing a medicine wheel isn’t necessary but being orientated towards the star system you’d like to connect with is necessary for this method.  Also, the use of a crystal grid is highly recommended.


A Starseed’s Meditation for Connection with ET Spirit Guides:


  1. Choose the star system you would like to connect with

Before attempting this meditation to connect with ET spirit guides, you must first decide which star system you’d like to connect with and then plan your meditation to occur during that star system’s alignment with earth.

2. Choose when you’d like to meditate

There two alignments per year for each star system: one where the star system appears to be behind the sun and another when the star system is opposite the sun.  Which alignment you choose will determine whether your meditation will occur at night or during the day.

Here is a list of alignments with some of the more ‘popular’ star systems:

The Pleiades – alignments occur on May 16 – 20th (daytime meditation) and November 16-20th (nighttime meditation).

Orion – alignments occur on June 3 – June 21 (daytime meditation) and December 3 – 21 (nighttime meditation)

Sirius – alignments occur on July 4-6 (daytime meditation) and January 4-6 (nighttime meditation)

Arcturus – alignments occur on October 16-18 (daytime meditation) and April 16-18 (nighttime meditation)

Lyra – alignments occur on January 4-20 (daytime meditation) and July 4-20 (nighttime meditation)

Vega – alignments occur on January 6 (daytime mediation) and July 6 (nighttime meditation)

Andromeda Galaxy – alignments occur on April 17th  (daytime meditation) and October 17th (nighttime mediation)

Andromeda Star System – alignments occur on April 3rd – May 3rd (daytime meditation) and October 3rd – November 3rd (nighttime meditation)

3.  Find a peaceful location to meditate, preferably outdoors.

For this meditation, I have a favourite place located in the bush that has been used by my ancestors for generations as a ceremonial ground.  Our medicine wheels are located here and it is a place where I feel comfortable and safe, yet powerful.  You’ll want to find a place that allows you to feel the same way.

4.  Orientate yourself to the star system you wish to connect with.

You can easily locate the star system if you do the daytime meditation because it will be located behind the sun.  Arrange yourself in a comfortable seated position so that your third eye is facing the sun.  Alternatively, you can meditate when the sun is directly overhead so that your crown chakra is facing the sun.

If you are doing the nighttime mediation, you will need to locate your star system in the sky.  Arrange yourself in a seated position so that your third eye or crown chakra is facing the star system.

5.  Build a crystal grid around yourself.

For this step, I basically sat in the middle of my medicine wheel but you can build your favourite crystal grid around yourself and it will work in the same way.  Any crystal grid will work as long as there are four crystals that correspond to the four directions.

6.  Meditate.

For this step, I follow traditional protocol.  I give my offering of tobacco, I introduce myself by my spirit name and I state my intention.   And then…. still and quiet.


I hope this method helps you to also connect with ET spirit guides!  Thank you for reading!

Orion Starseed Traits

Now Available  ‘The Starseed’s Compass: A Guide to Identifying Your Soul’s Origin’!  This book will identify all Orion starseed markings!

The Orion constellation is located in Gemini and is home to several different types of beings, all with similar overall characteristics.  Like other races of beings, they have agreed to help Earth in our spiritual evolution by seeding Orions into human bodies on Earth (Orion starseeds) and by acting as spiritual guides to individual people on Earth.

Orion starseeds tend to have the following traits:f19ebe24b167c0e20aa5c8f9b84cd51a

  • a insatiable thirst for knowledge
  • analyize and dissect all forms of information
  • hold opinions very strongly and do not change their opinions easily
  • need quantitative proof to accept opposing viewpoints
  • quite knowledgeable about a wide area of topics
  • react to emotions in a logical manner
  • require alone time to recharge
  • strive for perfection
  • have a good handle on will power and self discipline
  • enjoy competition

While places like the Pleiades and Arcturus operate from a place of unity, Orion operates from a place of duality.  While they are very enlightened beings, their duality allows Orions to operate with a bit of Ego, and enjoy the competition of sports and strive for perfection in a skill.  In contrast, a Pleiadian would likely not want to keep score and accept that wherever you are in the development of a skill, is exactly where you should be.  Orion starseeds understand their duality and they have learned to rather enjoy it.  However, Orions may come off a little self centered or cold as they have a slightly weaker emotional body.  They operate with a bit more divine masculine energy and may forget to consider one’s emotions when delivering a message or a teaching.

Orion Starseed Karma Integration

Orions embody the frequency of energy typically associated with the solar plexus chakra.  The golden yellow colour associated with the solar plexus also seems to radiate from Orion beings.  Orion spirit guides are excellent at teaching people to master their will power to operate at their highest potential.  Self improvement is essentially a competitive sport for Orion starseeds with very well integrated karma.  Orion starseeds with well integrated karma will be able to create physical abundance and consciously manifest their intentions.

Orion starseeds with poorly integrated karma are likely to feel like life is happening to them (as opposed to them being the creators of their life).  Poorly integrated Orion karma is likely to result in difficulties with physical abundance and conscious creation.  They are likely to be pessimistic and unable to accept responsibility.
