ASTROLOGY AND HEALTH: CANCER
ZODIAC SIGN OF THE MONTH - CANCER
Each sign of the zodiac rules a specific part of the human body and has requirements distinct from all other zodiacal signs. In the human body Cancer rules the lower part of the lungs, the breasts, the diaphragm, the stomach and may have influence over the spleen. Physiologically, Cancer governs expansion and contraction, elasticity and tenacity. It is a fluidic sign and all the organs it rules are concerned with the secretion of fluids.
The biochemic salt related to this sign is Calcium fluoride, a hard substance possessing a peculiar property of elasticity. It is an important constituent of the enamel of the teeth, the fingernails, bones, crystalline lens of the eye, and in the elastic fiber of all muscular tissue. When deficient the skin becomes cracked, there is prolapsed organs, varicose veins, hardening of the arteries, cataracts, blurred vision, hard growths, valvular heart troubles, hemorrhoids, receding gums, and loose teeth...all indications that the tissues have lost their elasticity.
There is a fine membrane similar to a spider web covering the brain that requires Calcium fluoride to be strong, pliable and elastic so that thoughts are quickly and easily connected to produce a good memory or in Cancer-speak, a tenacious memory (ability to hold on to thoughts). These tiny web-like filaments become flabby when this tissue (cell) salt is deficient thus, connection of thought becomes difficult, the result being a poor memory or forgetfulness...which is lack of mental elasticity.
Usually when a situation calls for Calcium fluoride, the tissue salt Silica is also required, as both these salts work in conjunction with one another, are extremely hard substances, and the actions of these salts in the body is to make firm and tighten up any tissues or organs that are relaxed or prolapsed.
People who were born with the Sun or Moon in Cancer or Sagittarius or have Cancer or Sagittarius on the Ascendant, and when planets in Cancer or Sagittarius or the Ascendant are under progressed or transiting afflictions can avoid problems associated with these Cancer and Sagittarian cell salts and enjoy excellent health by supplying their bodies with Calcium fluoride and Silica.
Many years ago a periodontist told me that I would lose four or five teeth due to gum disease. I requested putting off oral surgery for a few months and began to dose myself with Calcium fluoride daily. When I returned for the pre-surgery examination, the perio-man was surprised, to say the least, to discover that I would lose only one tooth.
HERBS THAT RESONATE WITH CANCER
Water lilies, cucumbers, squashes, melons, peppermint and water plants generally.
Digestive Aid: Peppermint owes its healing value to its content of menthol, which appears to soothe the smooth muscle lining of the digestive tract. It may also help to prevent stomach ulcers and stimulate bile secretion. To make a healing infusion for stomach upset, use 1 to 2 teaspoons of dried peppermint per cup of boiling water, cover and steep ten minutes, add honey and lemon to taste.
AROMATHERAPY FOR CANCER: ROMAN CHAMOMILE
Aromatherapy is a healing method which uses the essential oils obtained from aromatic plants and trees for therapeutic purposes.
The effect of Roman Chamomile is antiseptic, vasoconstricting, healing and beneficial for skin and hair, as well as for sensitive, dry, reddened, or itchy skin, infected wounds, abscesses, acne, and rashes.
I make a hand cream using a simple base cream such as Udderly Smooth (approximately two tablespoons) and add a few drops of Chamomile and Lavender Essential Oils, with a capsule of Vitamin E for a longer shelf life...it is excellent for chapped hands, tending to make them smooth and supple. A formula to try for dry skin, added to a base cream: 1 drop Rose, 2 drops Roman Chamomile, 1 drop Neroli.
MINERALS THAT RESONATE WITH CANCER
Moon stone, Catseye,
and such stones as are soft and white as they have the ability to improve the intuitive, receptive portion of the mind, encouraging psychic ability. The Brow (6th) Chakra is energized by these stones as they assist in clearing the aura. Pearl
