Star Seeds

For the first time in very long time did I stayed up beyond 1am on New Years Eve, fortunately around 4am I got to experience the rising of the most beautiful super moon. It is one of only two in the 2018 lunar calendar.

The lunar (moon cycle) has always been an interesting concept for me, not only for my love for astrology, but also for the beauty of the night sky. It was quiet interesting to learn that the moon cycle controls the tides of the ocean and the spiritual energy of the earth. Have you noticed how a lot of spiritual activity happens around the time of the full moon, be it from world events or in the movies? Okay, maybe we see a lot of that in the movies; nevertheless those things are usually based around factual knowledge. We tend to reject this kind of information as it either sounds superstitious or creepy, but the truth is that, there is an agenda behind every thought. The moon also helps in indicating what time of the month is it, more like how the sun’s position indicates the seasons and time of day.

If there are people who know what time it is in life, its women. So women have a menstrual period every month, perpetually, unless they fall pregnant or get too old to have babies. Thought I should get that out of the way, before we proceed with this discussion. Do you know that the female menstrual cycle is between 28 to 30 days, exactly like the lunar cycle? Yes, the phases of the moon coincide with the different stages of the periods of a woman. I can attest to this because I know that when the moon is full/new I am a few weeks away from a particular stage of my cycle. During a full moon the earth is said to be at its most “fertile”, and manifestations are more prominent than in any other time. If there are no additional hormones or contraception introduced to a woman’s body, her natural cycle will naturally gravitate towards a particular phase of the moon.

Normally women ovulate during a full moon (most fertile time) and menstruate in a new moon (time of cleansing), these women are said follow the white moon phase. And there are those who ovulate in a new moon and menstruate during a full moon, these tend to follow the red moon cycle. Some women are somewhere in-between these two extremes, leaning more towards either one of the phases. Over a woman’s lifetime their cycle switched from either the white or red cycle based on where they are in their lives and the spiritual energy they exhume at that time. Women are extremely connected to earth and it does seem logical because when you plant a seed in a woman’s womb, a human being comes out likewise, if you plant a seed in the earth, a tree that bears fruit comes out. We synthesize energy in a similar manner.

I read somewhere that there’s a tribe in Africa (in Congo, I think) that believes that in order for seasonal rains to come, all husbands must make sure that they give their wives orgasms. If the females are satisfied, the earth is appeased and she will give rain and a good harvest. You must remember that Mother Nature is female in her form, she’s a living, breathing organism called Gaia. So in my conspiracy theorist mind, I tried to put this knowledge to the tset by connecting dots in real life activities. By the way, connecting dots is all conspiracy theorists tend to do, even if it means creating some of the dots. But I must assure you, I don’t have ink to dot new dots, so please borrow me an open mind. Do you remember a time in 2016, I believe, in Cape Town when a young girl was found murdered almost every month? It was so frequent that it got sickening, this thing was becoming a pandemic and I don’t know if there are spiritual energies around it or it was connected to gang initiations (I think it’s the latter). It was exactly around that time that the drought began. Ever since those killings became prominent, earth never gave off her love of rain in that city. In African tradition, the people don’t own the land, but the land owns the people, thus if the land is angry, there would be a low rainfall leading to drought. In Swazi culture, young virgin girls would be sent up a mountain to go sing for rain in times of drought and indeed rain would fall. In Zimbabwe they actually have a rain making culture called Mukwera mainly led by older women who have passed sexual-active years. Ever heard of the Rain Queen Modjadji? Water keeps life in motion and there really is a thing about women, earth and rain.

With the ongoing female genocide in South Africa, we will struggle to keep our land healthy. I believe we might even have a bad cyclone in the current 2017/18 cyclone season due to the foul seeds we are planting. El’nino, Lamina aside. Unfortunately women remain at the bottom of the food chain, whereas in fact we are at the top of it in the humanity economy. Please forget 16 days of activism fantasies and focus on everyday activism. Women really need to be loved and respected no matter the season; this also goes for women towards each other. We are magical creations and are placed on earth purely because it is the most perfect environment for us to thrive. Respect earth, her truth and all her children, honestly we don’t want to push mother nature to have period pains and cleanse herself off this rotting seed that’s destroying her body. Men are also special, they carry the seed without, which there’s no fruit. I have read of ancient are ancient tale however, of women being able to fertilise their own eggs (okay, maybe I’m pushing it a bit now, lol).

Seriously though, it’s easy to take this analogy sound wishy-washy and superstitious. In fact, that is how most African customs have been categorised: Superstitious, barbaric, backwards or primitive. But how then do we explain the enforcements nature is communicating to us in relation to these mysteries, do we really have eyes to see? I honestly believe there is great insight in honouring ancient lessons from our ancestors on how to interact with our natural habitat and not cast it off as hogwash. Western insight is not the ultimate campus, for all who are created; there is a room for each one at the rendezvous of victory. African culture is rich and is not the be taken for granted.
