The Very Interesting Moon

I enjoy writing about the Moon. I am a Cancerian but much prefer being known as a Moonchild. The Moon is the ruler of the sign Cancer. The most viewed Blog post that I have written in the last six years was entitled “The Cancerian Moonchild”. The Statistics show it has had 1323 views, way more than anything else I have written about!

We know that the moon is now a dead body and nothing shows any life there, but was it always this way? All planets and luminaries have bodies and go through a process of birth, growth and death. The solar system is known as a body and is within a constellation.* The moon is another body within the solar system. The whole universe is one living organism with its basis being energy and motion. Planet earth is a body and within it are human bodies, mere cells in contrast to the greater whole. Just as blood and energy circulate through our bodies, so energy circulates through the universe, helping it to perform its function. Since planets have energy and motion, they can transmit this to other planets and influence them. This is how the moon influences the earth and its cells; the human beings who inhabit the earth. We pick up some of its cosmic energy, just as cosmic rays can affect life on earth.

*A constellation is a cluster of stars . The stars that appear on the ecliptical** belt have the same names, but not the same location as the twelve zodiac signs.

** The Ecliptical belt is the apparent path of the sun in the heavens. The plane of the earth’s orbit extended to meet the celestial sphere.

If the moon were to be suddenly struck out of existence, the tides would stop their rise and fall and the bodily fluids of humans would change drastically. The ebb and flow of life energy is linked to the waxing and waning of the moon. The study of human horoscopes through the years has shown that people born at the time from new to full moon have greater strength. Their blood, breath and muscles are stronger than those born when the moon is waning. Light is another source of energy and people born during the waxing moon live longer than those born during the decreasing light of the moon. It’s been shown that there is a definite link between the length of the moon cycle and the life span.

The moon is no longer just a remote romantic body in the heavens that lovers swear their love by, because we know it is there; it has been reached by humans.

Astrologers study the celestial bodies from the earth which is Geocentric. Astronomers study the solar system from a heliocentric-sun-centered point of view.

A Strange Event

Last night at 1:45 am I was awakened to the very loud voice of a woman coming from my living room. I ran in there to find out it was a newscaster from the BBC booming from one of our speakers. Nothing was turned on! Thinking it was coming from our Sonos System which has broadcast options from all over the world, I grabbed my phone looking for the Sonos App to turn it off. It told me to reinstall. So I went to my laptop and tried the Sonos App there, it wanted to update, which I did. After that I looked through and nothing was turned on. I removed a radio station. She still kept shouting! I disconnected the Sonos speaker, no help. I realized it was coming from the other large speaker next to the DVD player. I tried to find a wire to turn off that speaker. Suddenly it shut itself off! Sudden quiet at 2:15 a.m. Husband slept through it all! I still cannot understand what happened nor can he!!

Have your Child’s Birth Chart Cast

 

child pictureThere are many different approaches to raising children.  Each child has special talents, but how do we know what they are when they are young?  Astrology helps us to more easily identify these talents by having a natal chart cast for the date, time and place of their birth.    By looking at the child’s natal chart, we are able to discover so many things that make each of our children very unique.   We can teach them to live in harmony with themselves and with others and assist them to live to their fullest potential.   Looking back to the days of the Courts, every new baby had their birth chart cast.  This practice needs to happen again for all new babies.  There would be more happy, content people!

An Astrological chart is the most amazing gift we can give to new parents to help them raise their children.  They will get to learn the magic and mystery of each child.  The potential is shown in the chart, but like a small garden, it needs nurturing to become what it can be.

At the moment of the first breath, we each set the astrological pattern known as the horoscope.   A baby’s personality has not yet matured and the birth chart must be interpreted with this in mind.   The chart is a map of our personal universe for a lifetime.  It symbolizes the lessons we need to learn for the growth of our souls, the special needs we have as individuals, and indicates our potential for development.

Many people wonder why each child doesn’t come with an instruction guide or handbook.  Well there is a guide and it is the horoscope map.    It is the best tool we have to understand our children, help them to know themselves better and for us as parents to guide them toward a life path that is a perfect fit for them.

AWAKENING TO LIFE ALL OVER AGAIN

Special place lagoon and waterfall nearby

I posted this with different photos 3 years ago and it got a lot of views.  I decided to repost it today!

We are living in wonderland, but we rarely notice it. The easiest way.to spiritually awaken is to look at the world around us with new eyes… to see things as if for the first time and the last time!

Usually we become so entangled in the story we tell ourselves about life that we don’t notice the deep mystery of existence. We live as if we know what is going on, when actually life is an enormous enigma. For spiritual awakening we need to step into the mystery. A simple way to do this is to focus on the present moment.  When we do, our state of consciousness spontaneously changes because we come out of the story and into the mystery. The story exists in time, so when we bring our attention into the present moment there is no story about the past and the future. This can be a great relief. In the here and now, we don’t understand life with words; we experience the mystery of the moment.

Spiritual awakening is intensely pleasurable, because we truly appreciate all we see and hear and touch in this world of wonders. When we are superficially awake, we feel the enjoyment available to us only partially. When we are deeply awake; however, we find ourselves really savoring the pleasures of life. The body wakes up to how sweet it is to be alive.

Appreciate colors and sounds and feelings. They become rich and vibrant. The world starts to sparkle. There is an experience of profound gratitude that arises when we  see how glorious life really is!

Edgar Cayce – The Sleeping Prophet

I have written about Edgar Cayce and his views on Astrology and also on what he had to say about Health.  I have also been attending a local study group about  Cayce, reading and discussing the books “A Search for God”.  He has held a fascination for me since I discovered him and his  A.R.E, Area of Research and Enlightenment Center in Virginia Beach back in the late 1970’s.

I decided to do a search through my books to see if I could find out how and when he received his gift of going to sleep and getting information.  

When he was a young teen, he was sitting near his retreat in the woods by the creek reading his Bible, which he often did.  At this point he had read through it 13 times for the 13 years of his life.!  As relayed in the book by Thomas Sugrue, “There is A River”  he saw a woman by the creek and at first he thought it was his mom.  The sun was in his eyes but he said there was something on her back that made shadows behind her, shaped like wings.  Her voice was soft and very clear and almost musical.  She told him his prayers had been heard and asked him what he wanted most of all.  He was frightened but said he wanted to be helpful to other people and most especially to children when they are sick.  She said his prayers were answered and then she disappeared.  His mother, whom he felt it safe to confide in, believed his story, knowing him to be a truthful boy.   He told his mom he would like to be a Preacher and a Missionary.

He usually had trouble remembering his spelling lessons and the following day was kept after school. That evening his dad was so frustrated with him when he just could not seem to spell the words, that he slapped him knocking him off his chair. Edgar heard a voice inside him, it was the voice of the lady he had seen the day before.  She was saying “If you sleep a little we can help you.”   He asked his dad if he could just rest for a few minutes, he was sure he would know his words when he got up.

Edgar laid down with his spelling book and fell asleep on it.   His dad left the room and returned in a few minutes to wake him up.   He told his dad he knew all the words. and his frustrated dad quizzed him one more time.  The answers came quickly and correctly.  In fact, he knew everything in the book. His dad just didn’t believe that he hadn’t known the lessons the whole time and smacked him again. He ran up to bed with his book and thanked the lady.  The next morning after his dad left, he asked his mom to hear his lesson and he still knew it.  He told his mom what happened and she kissed him and reassured him that the lady was keeping her promise.

In school, Edgar was still doing poorly with his other subjects.  He decided to bring home his books and sleep on them one at a time.  He  prayed and asked the lady to help him again.  From then on, he was able to see pictures of the pages in his textbooks in his mind and read from them.  He began to make progress as a scholar. His dad asked him to explain this change and said I hope you are not crazy!

Strangely,  Edgar Cayce had the nickname ‘Old Man’ as a kid.   Everyone called him that except for his mother.  He felt different from the other boys and was embarassed every time his father bragged about his ability to others.   While playing a game similar to baseball, he ran to a base and the ball hit him at the end of his spine.  He returned to his classroom and began acting strange, which continued after he went home.  When he went to bed, he asked his mom to make a poultice and place it on the back of his head near the base of the brain. He told her he was suffering from shock and would be alright in the morning if the poultice was kept on all night.   His mom made it for him since it contained nothing that would hurt him.  He was fine in the morning, but recalled nothing of the entire incident.  

Years later, Edgar lost his voice.  It just suddenly dwindled to a painful whisper and even the throat specialists were unable to help him.  This went on for months. Hypnotism was undergoing a fad at the time.  Cayce went to see several, but they were unsuccessful. Then he decided that he would put himself to sleep and the Hypnotherapist was to ask him to view his body and describe the trouble in the throat. He suggested Edgar should speak in a normal tone of voice, which he did. Edgar also stated that circulation was to be increased to the throat. This suggestion was given along with another that the throat problem be removed.  After about 20 minutes he coughed and spit up blood and his voice became normal again.  The Doctor said that if he could do this for himself, he should be able to do it for others. 

This was the beginning of Edgar Cayce’s ability to diagnose and help heal people while sleeping,  as long as someone gave him the suggestion and wrote down what he said.  He never remembered anything he said while asleep!
