There is conjecture that Anubis was the original Sphinx so that while today the Sphinx bears the head of a man, it is believed the Sphinx was first sculpted with the head of a canine (Anubis).
Anubis was the son of Osiris and the brother of Horus. It was Anubis who escorted the deceased into the underworld, where in the Hall of Ma’at, the heart was weighed against the feather of Ma’at. It was Anubis who cast the heart that was found lacking in purity and innocence into the abyss.
Anubis is associated with Leo the lion. Leo is the “Fire” sign, and they can be stubborn, determined, and at their worst, demanding and authoritarian. It is the sign of the lion, i.e., a sign of leadership abilities.
Anubis reflects a path into our hearts, where much has gone bad. However, without those bad experiences, we would not be who we are. They are not a curse, but our greatest gift, as they provide fuel for change and new beginnings.
Light the candle; Allow Anubis to place the crown of self-love and leadership on your head. Allow the power feeling of love to enter your heart; know and meditate on being a child of love, a child of the light, a child of the universe.
