Why Astrology and the Tarot are so important to understanding Traditional Knowledge
The word Kabala signifies traditional knowledge. It thus refers to the Oral Law, as handed down from antiquity; and embraces the occult traditions of all lands and all peoples. Often it is used merely as referring to the esoteric doctrines of the Jews; but in its broader sense it includes also the secret doctrine of other races. This secret doctrine, common to many lands, was jealously guarded from the profane, and was never permitted to pass into writing except in such ambiguous terms as to baffle the uninitiated as to its true purport. In this sense the sacred books of the world, including the Avesta, the Vedas and the Bible are largely kabalistical; for they set forth traditions that are capable of an inner, or esoteric, interpretation. In fact, there are usually several interpretations possible, each more inner version revealing a deeper truth to those who have advanced along the path far enough to comprehend it.
And this seems the proper place to point out that the unwritten kabala, like the written kabala, is set forth in symbolical language, with purposeful blinds and subterfuges to confuse the uninitiated; so that of the few who undoubtedly exist at the present day who have received it, most remain in as much ignorance of its true interpretation as the majority of students do after studying the more accessible written kabala. This unwritten kabala has been transmitted only through certain secret schools. Those receiving it well merit what is given to them. They are left to their own devices in the matter of interpretation. And because the real keys to its interpretationóastrology and the tarotóhave been largely ignored, or distorted, they have floundered sadly in arriving at its meaning. Whether written or unwritten, the kabala is a philosophy correlated to esoteric astrology as exemplified by the tarot; and it can only be comprehended fully by those who perceive the true relation between astrological energies and their pictured tarot exemplification.

Cancer: The 4th Sign of the Zodiac
June 22 thru July 23
Angels that go up and down...
“Parenthood Tends to Displace Selfishness With Tender Affections that Most Quickly Strengthen the Soul and Build the Spiritual Body.“
When discussing the spiritual significance of the sign Cancer, Zain focuses on “The Ladder to Heaven” described by Jacob’s dream in the twenty-eighth chapter of Genesis. A ladder is set upon the earth. The top of it reaches to heaven. Angels of God ascend and descend......the soul makes progress by gaining experiences in one physical form; passing at its dissolution into the astral world, as Jacob saw the non-material beings do in his dream, and
after a period of experience and assimilation in the astral world, descending, as Jacob saw them do, to occupy another, but more complex, physical body on the earth. Every such form occupied constituted one rung in the soul’s evolutionary ladder. It could be gained only through the offices of parents who provided it opportunity to have a new physical body.

Alchemizing the Moon:
For use at times when we are in domestic turmoil, unduly changeable, or in group turmoil, under coercion and unduly negative.
Constructive Domestic Urges express as Adaptability in relation to public or domestic life. They are characterized by persistence in endeavors to the point of ability.
O Thou Eternal Spirit, in Whom I live, move, breathe and have my Being! Grant that I may have only constructive, positive activity in my life. Let me be a protecting influence to all who may need me. Let my purpose and interest in life be for their welfare. I earnestly desire that my energies go constructively and actively beyond my daily round of duty to all who are in need and for whom I have the ability to assist.
So Shall It Be!

"Those in politics and those in religion...who want to make converts to some belief not based on logic and facts, commonly use one or all of three methods....they employ fear...they give an inversive twist to the facts and disseminate lies. Or they use the habitual emotional reactions of the prospective convert...
"...it is enough to point out that early in life most people have been so conditioned that they respond emotionally in a specific manner to certain phrases, certain words, and certain ideas. And the clever propagandist associates the ideas which he wants his prospective convert to believe with phrases, words and ideas which commonly bring a strong and favorable emotional reaction; and he associates the ideas he wishes to disparage with phrases, words and ideas which commonly bring a strong emotional revulsion.
"We must realize in our effort to establish a sound religion and a higher civilization that the vast majority of people...[tend to be]...powerfully influenced by their habitual emotional reactions—which have been thus conditioned early in life before reasoning powers were much developed—than by facts and logic. Therefore it is a major part of the task of all Stellarians to educate those they contact to consider facts, whatever they may be, unemotionally, and to weigh all facts without emotional prejudice, and to arrive at conclusions through logical consideration of all available facts. When the evidence is all in and a just and reasonable verdict reached is when emotion should be released to insure actions based upon that verdict.
"Truth is the conformity of cognition to reality. Only if we are aware of reality can we act in the proper manner. And this applies to politics, to religion, to business and to every department of life. But we cannot learn the truth if facts are suppressed, if facts are distorted, if we believe in falsehoods, or if through early conditioning our emotions will not permit us to consider facts which are presented to us, or if these emotions censor or distort logical conclusions arrived at from a consideration of all the available facts."
