first off, thankhs for keeepin it real.
"Perhaps in my culture we do not make the connection between the SOLAR system and the SOUL because we are not traditionally astrologers."
i dont think it is a matter of astrology tho, musimba. but rather, it is how deep one wants to observe their being. most of the Incients did this through science. it is unfortunate that your culture, which im sure is an indigenous one, didnt know that they are the children of the sun. for the Incients, well the ones i know of, mostly dealt with a sun god, because they knew that its rays are life-giving, even the planets revolve around it in reverence. MODERN science tells us that we are made up of star-stuff. in our bones, as well as the energy in InI, ALL CAME FROM THE INTERIOR OF STARS, according to studies concerning the sun. basically, studying the ZODIAC deals with astrology, but ASTRONOMY is the study of the the planets, meteors and such. i dont think one needs a telescope to know our connection to the sun tho, and its new to i, that ur culture doesnt deal with this information. enlighten me on it please, when u have time. P.E.A.C.E
