Making Astrology Work For You


One thing about living in this Orwellian nightmare of a superstate and endless war, is that when we wake up to the horrors of it, it might kill us. Like coming off heroin, the shock of reality may be just too much to bear. It can overwhelm you just when you think you are making progress. That's what happened to fellow Cancers Amy Winehouse and Ernest Hemingway. Out of the Matrix and into the grave. Death was preferable to their own nakedness.

Our shock is seeing the blasted bodies of children, the destroyed lives and cities, the ruin and rubble of Man's inhumanity. Capitalist greed consuming us in fire and twisted steel. What we've been hiding from ourselves and each other for a long time under the shroud of nationalism, tradition, fear, racism and hypocrisy.

But it isn't just "Man's" inhumanity in general, that's the whore media arching the blame to shift and dilute culpibiity from themselves and ourselves. It's always easy to blame "man's" inhumanity to man.

Now -- the blame goes more specifically to the AMERICAN MAN. The BRITISH MAN, The ISRAELI MAN. These men have become the destroyers, the maniacs. These are the ones who are fucked up. You may have one in your family. It may be YOU.

We're waking up to the fact that horror and carnage is the way Americans roll, the way we enforce the power of the dollar. Our only policy is IMPERIALISM -- and the backlash is insanity. It's a first world problem. It can mean destruction to those who are too weak to respond to it with change. Change is coming, change is here.

Having the rest of the world wake up to the truth is another matter. It's a growing concern with the imperialist warmongers that people are going to join up together and destroy the parasite Owning Classes, the Bourgeoisie, the Imperial USA, the Fascist Fringe, the Zionist racist cult. Get rid of the war-makers, the money-makers. Now these billionaires are acting like maniacs because they are afraid of what WE can do. We can take them out.

They are quaking in their boots and can't start wars fast enough to try to justify their existence. The monopoly capitalists who once dreamed of suffocating the world in their grip are now themselves surrounded by a sea of angry humanity who wants to rid themselves of avarice and the profit motive like a cancerous tumor.

Don't wait for capitalism to die; kill it before it kills YOU.

Jihad against the dollar!

CANCER Light and Dark

Cancer is run by the Moon—you are the Moon's children, in that you spring from her, and are naturally inclined to follow a lunar cycle, rather than the solar one. You possess the face the world sees, and and another face, Lilith, the dark side, which nobody sees.

Cancer is the Crab—the ancient females who devised astrology named the Crab Nebula as the mother of stars. Cancer is the mother of the Zodiac, Hera's favorite. The Arab astrologers named your star Al Tarf, which represents the Third Eye—the all-seeing wisdom of mother nature. Cancer's powerful Zodiacal neighbor, Leo the huntress is looking through this Moon's eye to help her in the hunt. The Cancer is a connection with our natural animal origins and instincts, all life, all people. Cancer is the established ancient leadership. Back to a time when ALL humanity was directed and illuminated by the Moon, in the same way we use GPS and internet now. The Moon and Saturn were all-important indicators to the ancients, since they were considered benefactors and symbols of abundance.

Now everything is changed—the Greeks and Romans put an end to the female dominance of society by violence, and we live in a world of simplistic capitalism—a simple solar cycle of kill or be killed, fight or flight. Once glorious Cancer has faded from her previous brightness, and is no longer at the Summer solstice, due to the precession of the equinox. Even the Beehive cluster, Cancer's busy star generator and incubator, can no longer be seen due to the light and smog pollution on Earth. Now Saturn represents crucifixion.

But Cancers are still living on in a lunar society—they have a private world they inhabit, that soothes them and gives them encouragement. Cancer females—and many sensitive male Cancers—are part of a family, a secret, inbred society based on emotions, nature, and time. This may be the real "politics". This is why we also associate Cancers with political leadership, since they can use their invisible connection with humanity to deliver the message. A Cancer can telegraph a political statement with a hat, a wink, a single gesture—that would take the typical solar-based pedant thousands of words to convey.

Cancers are independent, self-contained, and want power and influence as much as their distant cousins, Capricorn, except they want to achieve power without personal responsibility. Saturn becomes the state, the status quo. Cancers are more the state, according to Hollywood. The perception changes according to the political agenda. Is this the famous Cancer two-step, where they parry and avoid contact, only to strike later?

Cancers can and will change personalities the same way an actor changes hats, or a change of role. They are much more adaptable than their equally bossy opposite pole, Capricorn, and Cancers are a lot nicer. The Cancer starts his/her cycle during the New Moon, when she/he determines her goals for the month—or the greater cycle she is aiming for. By visualizing—sharing, dramatizing, advertising, whatever, the Cancer has until the full Moon to realize the lunar "intentions". Many Cancers write these intentions down and keep them close to their bodies (under the pillow, in the pocket) to activate their powers of concentration.

Cancers are supposed to be automatically great Mothers but this is a big misconception. You may have children but you may still find an emptiness that only the power of leadership can give you. You may love all children as much or more than your own. This is the enigma of Cancer. It's very loving sign but also, rather impersonal, because they can love all things—or devour them, the same way Mother Nature does.

"They are but the fruit on the tree of life."

Do You Know Your Sign?
Don't be surprised that your birthday no longer falls in the sign you've grown up with. Astrologers gave you the wrong sign, at least the wrong degree. Look at the skies yourself, and you'll see the problem. The Sun, Moon and the planets are not where astrologers say, not even close! Mainstream "tropical" astrology is wildly inaccurate and the laughing stock of science and astronomy. [Click for free star-finder app Stellarium for your own edification]

Tropical uses an obsolete, 1800-year-old-map that ignores the Earth's precession of the equinoxes and has developed a 28 degree tumor that's like an fatal blow to astrology's credibility. Science and the rest of the world abandoned the Tropical calendar over 400 years ago. Tropical astrology isn't just wrong, it's blind as a bat. You want proof? Click our astronomical update page, click to Telescope, or look at where the visible planets are through an actual telescope! Tropical astrology is UNSUPPORTABLE.

Astrology is Time Sensitive
Astrology has been crippled with Ptolemy's futile attempt to stop time in its tracks in 118 AD. He imposed a rigid, didactic system that yoked astrology to the wrong time, as soon as he introduced it. His calculations would gain an error of a degree every 75 years. Today, Tropical astrologers are typically off by a full sign. Tropical astrology is like a broken clock, and reveals only its own error. Tropical astrology can't find your place in the cosmos -- it can never reckon the true positions of the planets and constellations -- it can't get the numbers right -- it utterly fails to deliver on its basic promise. And it doesn't even end there.

Whether you’re speaking about astrological signs or astronomical constellations, the Zodiac depicts the narrow beltway of stars on the stellar sphere through which the sun, moon and planets travel continuously. The Zodiac runs astride the ecliptic – the sun’s yearly pathway in front of the backdrop stars. Can you find Ophiuchus (oh-few-cuss), center, vaulting over the yellow line of the ecliptic?

The 13th Sign is Ophiuchus!
The Zodiac has 13, not 12, signs! The constellation of the goddess Ophiuchus, the snake handler, can clearly be seen emerging from Scorpio and leaping up to meet Hercules. Only her foot remains in the ecliptic. She is the birth of the new; the power of the zenith; the culmination of Scorpio's lonely vigil. Astronomers recognize her as one of the eponymous (original) signs on the Zodiac.
Yet, she's a non-entity in tropical astrology, and was changed into a man by the Greeks. Ptolemy pleased his Imperial bosses by eliminating the lunar Zodiac and by deleting Ophiuchus, as well as masking the gender of other female gods, and superimposing a static, Solar 12-sign Zodiac with equal thirty-degree houses. The Romans went so far as to gouge Libra out of Scorpio to honor the bloody reign of their syphilitic Emperor, Augustus. What arrogance of the Romans to cut and slice up the Cosmic pie to reflect their own wretched slave-based and hypocritical society!

Lunar Vs. Solar
The ecliptic is actually based on the 28 day, 13-month lunar calendar. Each of 13 signs hold a different share of the 360 degrees of the Sun's yearly travel, but the portions aren't all the same size slice of pizza, they vary. The Sun is in Virgo for the most days of the year, 46, and
Scorpio has the least, with six. Ptolemy's oversimplification of astrology may have been convenient before computers, when star gazing was an arcane pursuit; but today, drawing up the correct chart is easy with the right software. Anybody can now see the fatal fault in astrology. Why astrologers still use Ptolemy's ridiculous Ephemeris (compiled by the man who insisted the Sun revolved around the Earth) is an irony of history. Tropical astrology is deservedly found on the comics page and is otherwise milked like a cash cow by glib charlatans.

How important is accuracy? Astrology, like astronomy, is based on math, and only works if the math works. Astrology must have a mathematically accurate map to interpret the horoscope correctly. If you are going to use numbers to locate the archetypes from a centuries-old mythology, why use bogus numbers? Only the correct chart, showing the true signs of the planets and luminaries, can help us interpret them in any meaningful way. Only then can these myths, the ancient traditional symbols, as applied to you, be part of a coherent system. Astrology was designed thousands of years ago as the greatest sociological study ever attempted!

Astrology is Your Blueprint
Ready to meet the real you? See what a real astrology can do! The real horoscope is the map of the skies at the moment of your birth and location on Earth. Only an astronomically accurate chart shows the correct degree placements of the Sun, Moon, Chiron, and all your planets, aspects and the angles. The chart is based on numbers, so the numbers have to be right. 13 sign astrology strikes the mark every time, because the concepts of the ancient myth are rooted on modern fact.

Your Chart is the Map of Your Future
Each chart is like your biography, except it holds the seeds of future development as well. Discover your lunar message of fulfillment in the Moon's Nodes. Your Rising Sign and the angles change with your time zone, and are how you appear to others. Each planet and orbiting asteroid has an effect on your desires, goals and the people in your life. Today's transits are in constant predictable cycles with inescapable influences for you personally; and you can see them coming with an accurate astrological forecast.
