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.
