Dolphin in the Night Sky

This week a tiny constellation can be found in the southern part of the night sky. If you live in the northern hemisphere, look for Delphinus around 8 p.m (EST). You will find it almost directly overhead. A star pattern composed of faint stars so close together they can be clearly seen.

I wasn't aware of a dolphin constellation and so this is really exciting news. In Animal-Speak, Ted Andrews writes that the dolphin was a symbol of salvation to the early Christians. To the Greeks it was a sacred messenger of the gods, a dynamic blessed symbol of the sea. Dolphin can open new creation and dimensions to a great degree.


Not only is the dolphin making an appearance but the whale, Cetus, will emerge from the south east horizon around 8 p.m., too. The whale is symbolic of the power of song and awakening inner depths. The Native Americans refer to it as the Ancient Record Keeper.

Enjoy your day with the Angels.
