Sun in Cancer

Olivia Robertson wrote:
"Cancer was held by the Sages to be the House of the Moon, as the Moon was believed to have been in Cancer at the Creation. It was respected as Horoscope of the World, as the sign nearest the Zenith. The learned Berossus declared that our earth shall be submerged when all planets are grouped in Cancer. The Chaldean Magi and the Platonists taught their disciples that souls descend from Heaven into human bodies through Cancer, the Gate of Humanity."

"This is the time of the Summer marriage of the Goddess and the God.  Whichever age you are, the mystical marriage of Deity is within yourself.  There are those who seek the Higher Marriage - the marriage of Spirit with Earth - and the time has come for us to regain Immortality with the harvest of our own individual Soul."

Audio highlight: Divine Alchemy

Audio transcript:
"There is a polluted river of grief and rage and every emotion flowing deep below our everyday awareness. Freud described this as the Unconscious.  It works through group telepathy and poisons families, races, religions.  We need bravery to allow this river to flow openly through us - not to block it, because we ourselves are creating it.  Only by facing evil can we perform the Divine Alchemy of transforming hate into love, fear into faith, violence into peace. So shall we cleanse our world from our own nightmares.  When even one of us does this, the poisonous river of death becomes the cleansing river of tears and so reaches the sky, drawn upwards to the sun, and rains upon us, the pure waters of Life."

We invoke thy grace

"Holiest of the Holy, great Goddess Isis, perpetual comfort of mankind, thou whose beautiful grace nourishes the whole world. Whose heart turns towards all those in sorrow and tribulation, as a mother's to her children, we invoke thy grace. Hallow our shrines with thy protecting wings that bringeth shade to the weary of heart, jubilation to the distressed and rest to sufferers. Bring vision and healing, thou who with thy breath bringeth the dead to life: thou friend of Thoth, bring us wisdom. As thou dist restore thy husband the God Osiris, bring us also thy everlasting love and life."
