Today we celebrate one of the “four corners” of the Zodiac. In each one of the four seasons that mark our journey around the Sun, we seek to find our way through the spiritual meanings held by the Lords of Light on this path made by Truth and forged by Love. The four cardinal signs of Aries and Cancer, of Libra and Capricorn hold us together in these four points of life and light, posing the essential four questions for our journey, which are: Who am I? Who are you? Where did we come from? Where are we going?
In this realm of Cancer that we celebrate and move into today, (although it is ever-present in our lives, always somewhere in our own charts, and in every particle of Creation too), the answer to the question of our origin, of our roots, of our center and spiritual source is lovingly held for all time. But we must remember this, that all of the signs are ever-present and part of this experience of our roots, and each sign must form an essential part of being whole and centered too.
The Circle of the Living Ones, what we call the Zodiac, is not some collection of zones in the heavens around our Earth. That just makes no sense at all. The Zodiac is one of the essential foundations for the whole of Creation, forming what I like to see as the Design-Body or the master Aura of Creation, because they hold the Twelve Creative Hierarchies that are found throughout all of the realms and dimensions of the Universe. The Zodiac is omni-present and complete, at the root of creation and forming every particle, being, star and galaxy.
Everything and everyone of us is formed within their own Aura or Electro-Magnetic Field, which is then equally aligned and informed by the Aura of the Zodiac for the Earth, which is in turn aligned and informed by the Aura for our Solar System, and then our Galaxy and so on. What we feel all around us are these wheels revolving within wheels, vortices of energy-forms dancing within vortices, because Creation is the dance of Spirit-Life-Consciousness held and guided by the Lords of Light, the Zodiac. It is these twelve creative hierarchies of spirit which provide the vehicles for the release of that which is behind the whole of Creation, which is the Will, Love and Mind of the One. And because this is so, no matter where you are, no matter with whom you journey now, you are always home and held in love by the One at the center of us all.
To experience Cancer as our source, our origin, our home, we must also realize that we have moved into the first of the Water signs, and we must slip beyond our mind into realms that must be felt. We feel these truths in so many ways, these gifts that come from being part of the story of Creation, which begins and ends with the One. We feel what it means to be held by these everlasting Archetypes and mortal beings too, by Mother-Father, Grandmother-Grandfather, by all our living and loving relations, who hold us and bring us back to our center, back to our roots, back to our home right here and now, and also to the home we came from yesterday, to our lives long ago, and even to worlds before, and even to the center of Creation itself. For this is what lies at the center of us all, the One whose center is everywhere and whose circumference is nowhere.
In Cancer we hold our memories, our stories of what we were and what we shall someday become. We started long ago on this journey, singing our songs as sparks of the Divine, striving, searching, seeking, and loving to become another star among the countless stars.
By Cancer you connect to the roots of you and to roots of one and all. You find yourself in your family, in the stories about your ancestors, as you care for one another because it is part of who and what we are, what made us and what will make our future too.
We were made from love, and we are here to love and be loved.
Here is the truth held by Cancer, which is that we are all part of the one family of Spirit, and that “we are all related”, and that what holds and guides us from the very beginning to the end of days is pure unconditional love.
We are all part of the Circle of the Living Ones, held by the One and to one another by love.
This is the first truth, this is the root of one and all, that what we are here for is for love.
