    Today spiritual sustenance is really what everyone needs and many are seeking. To find it, we, as an African people, must return to the ancient laws and the natural organic principles of the ways of our fathers. Many of these natural organic principles and laws are embodied in the ancient royal art of astrology, the religion, art and science of our African ancestors...

    The priest/astrologers of ancient Egypt named the sky above them “Scarab” at the time of the Summer Solstice. “Scarab” is the Egyptian root word for “crab,” which is Latin for “Cancer.” The Summer Solstice marks the Sun’s highest point from the celestial equator on the 21st of June. Its longitude in the Heavens at this cardinal point is 0° Cancer, as measured on the ecliptic along the zodiac belt...

    In ancient Egyptian eschatology this point in the Heavens was known as “The Gate of Men,” through which souls descended from Heaven into human bodies. Thus the continent of Africa, our Motherland, is ruled by Cancer, the sign of birth, motherhood, and the family tradition...

    The story of all mankind is written in the stars, and each nation has its star to follow. Because we are a Cancer people, our celestial body is the Moon, the Earth’s satellite and cosmic ruler of the sign Cancer. Because of her inherent need to nurture all things that come into the keen of her feeling and supersensitive nature, the Moon’s principles are fruitfulness and nourishment. Her main function is motherhood and domestication, and her primary subjects are females and all things that require water for growth (Cancer is a water sign)...

    The Moon is said to wield peculiar powers in her changes, including the ability to contact unseen worlds. Therefore, those influenced by lunar vibrations are endowed with a kind of primeval receptivity. This allows us to recall survival techniques from our ancestral past...

    All important matters and endeavors that we wish to grow and succeed in should be initiated during the time of the New Moon, for Luna will have just left her superior conjunction with the Sun, imbued with the vitality and authority bestowed upon her by the Giver of Life. The Moon's best signs are Cancer and Pisces, and the earth sign Taurus, in which she is exalted. The Earth’s satellite tenants each of the 12 signs of the zodiac for approximately 2½ days.

    As a Cancer people, our first and most immediate concern is a dedicated resolve to utilize our resources and talents to assure our children an adequate education for the future. No sacrifice is too great for the saving of a nation. Intellectually, we must focus on service to family, friends and neighbors. Proper diet, preferably organic and vegetarian, is also very important. We must establish harmony, peace and equity in our homes, and all domestic affairs should be balanced fairly...

    We must awaken to the fact that for us functional love is art, and art is love because we adore its power. We should relate to our environment as we would our parents. The reward for this is freedom. Our spiritual intuition is erratic, astounding and unexpected, yet amazingly accurate and reliable when we relinquish our wills and allow ourselves to become obedient instruments of the Divine will of The Creator...

    Institutions assure nations of a place in the world. We must fight to save ours, or there will be no sanctuary – only sorrow and regret. Our ambition should be leadership in all career endeavors. Our hopes, wishes and aspirations can only be realized through stable, resourceful friends who have experiences similar to ours...

    Our motivations are dual: The lower self, which covets that which it already has, and the higher self, which communicates universally and delivers the messages from the gods via the still, small voice within. As an African people we must develop our minds in the natural arts of living and survival as we face the coming Age of Aquarius, which is not a sign of feeling, but of an awakening to individual responsibility. Mankind now stands in the present moment simultaneously looking back at a time that was, and forward to a time that is yet to be. Timing is the all-important element for everything undertaken now...

    The vibrations of the sign Aquarius possess powerful virtue, influence and efficacy. It is the sign of truth. The ancient Egyptian priest/astrologers taught that the vibrations of Aquarius alter the air and the seasons in a strange and secret manner. Our solar system is about to enter the constellation Aquarius (thus the Aquarian Age), therefore great and drastic changes – along all lines – will slowly materialize. Beliefs and opinions, held only because they were those of our recent forebears, are fast going into the scrap heap of old ideas. Study and concentration – a wish to know – brought about by the initial stirring of the inner self, will eventually present the reason for all things to the consciousness of man, especially the Black man...

    I would suggest that you first understand what it means to be a Cancer female, and have knowledge of your celestial ruler, which is the Moon. The following is an esoteric interpretation of the sign Cancer and its celestial ruler, the Moon:

    Cancer is the sign of conception, and occult science teaches that Jehovah, the god of generation, is the guardian of seed atoms or monads, the basic factor in fertilization; and as the Moon is the orb of fecundity, through this medium souls pass from the shores of Eternity, through the waters of the womb, to the world of Time.

    The cardinal water sign Cancer is ruled by the Moon, and therefore is the sign in which the Moon is dignified. The priest-astrologers of ancient Egypt depicted this sign as a “scarab” (i.e., a beetle), which was their symbol for the human soul, and called Cancer “the sphere of the soul.”

    They taught that through this sign the Lords of Form – evolving through the sign Scorpio – assist the incarnating ego, and, conjointly with the lunar agencies, project the seed atom of the dense body into the semen of the father, who, being the physical germ-carrier, conveys the seed to the mother, in whose womb fertilization takes place.

    The reason why the sign Cancer was called “the sphere of the soul” was because occult investigations had convinced the priest-astrologers of ancient Egypt that through this mystical sign the monad makes its link with matter. The sign Cancer was said to be the gateway through which human monads enter the arena of physical life.

    In explaining how the seed atom of the human ego makes its link with matter through the sign Cancer, only a feeble attempt has been made to put into words that which must be spiritually perceived in order to be fully understood. Let us suppose that one of the Great Beings from another solar system desires to visit our planet Earth. According to the universal law that guides an ego into incarnation, such a Being would seek entrance into our solar system through the constellation Cancer. After entering our solar system, he would seek ingress to the Earth through the Moon, which is sympathetically attuned to the sign Cancer. In other words, the law that rules the Universe rules man and the atom.

    Since the Moon is the orb of birth, the most fitting time for those desiring children to invoke the aid of the angel Gabriel – the Moon’s ambassador to planet Earth – would be when the Moon is in Cancer. And since Monday is the Moon’s day, the hours ruled by the Moon during that day would be the most favorable time for making the petition...

    The Moon, our planet’s only satellite, is the orb of conception and birth. It rules Cancer, the sign of conception and birth, as well as females. According to astrology, the great fact of maternity is capable of purely astronomical measurement, meaning that all births are brought about in exact harmony with the lunar laws, and that intra-uterine life is in direct relation to the astronomical world.

    The law pertaining to the prenatal epoch is based upon the observed relationship between the Moon and the Ascendant (i.e., the rising sign) of a horoscope. For example, the sign the Moon is in at birth is the sign that was rising at the time of conception, and the sign that is rising at birth is the sign the Moon was in at the time of conception. In other words, your Moon-sign is the sign that was rising on the eastern horizon at the time you were conceived, and your rising sign is the sign the Moon was in at the time you were conceived.

    Other lunar laws state that:

    (1) If the Moon is above the horizon and waxing (going from the New Moon to the Full Moon) at the time of birth, the period of gestation is less than 273 days, which is the average time of gestation (30.33 days x 9 mos.).

    (2) If the Moon is below the horizon and waning (going from the Full Moon to the New Moon), the gestation period is also less than 273 days.

    (3) If the Moon is above the horizon and waning at the time of birth, the gestation period is more than 273 days.

    (4) if the Moon is below the horizon and waxing, the gestation period is also more than 273 days.

    (Of course these lunar laws are based on full-term pregnancies.)

    As aforementioned, the Moon rules the female species, and when the Sun and Moon are in the same angular relationship in the Heavens as they were at the time of a female’s birth (±2 ½ days), maximum fertility occurs during her childbearing years.

    Another fact worth mentioning is that it takes the Moon 27 days, 7 hours and 43 minutes to make one complete revolution around the Earth, which is the basis of the term “month,” which is derived from the Latin “mensis,” from which the word “menstruation” is derived.

    Thus we see that the Moon is the orb of fecundation and fructification. The words “fecundity” and “fructify” relate to the process of procreation, and are the root words of the infamous English “f-word,” a vulgar term for intercourse...

    The number of the Moon is 2, which is also the number of the female; its angel, or ruling intelligence is Gabriel; and its day of the week is Monday (the 2nd day), which is derived from the term “Moon’s day.”

    I suggest that you print these articles and study them PurpleMoons. They will be of great benefit to you. Another thing, being ruled by the Moon, you should know what sign it's in every day...
