Cancer In Comparison With Libra 1. Esoteric Mantram: I build a lighted house and therein dwell. 1. Esoteric Mantram: I choose the way that leads between the two great lines of force. 2. Exoteric/Evolutionary Mantram: And the Word Said: Let isolation be the rule and yet the crowd exists. 2. Exoteric/Evolutionary Mantram: And the Word said: Let choice be made. 3. Quality of Light: The Light within the form 3. Quality of Light: The Light that moves to rest 4. Element: Water sign 4. Element: Air Sign 5. Cardinal Cross 5. Cardinal Cross 6. Cancer transmits R3 and R7 constellationally. 6. Transmits R3 constellationally 7. Secondarily, (assuredly, but not exclusively), Cancer transmits R4 and R6, through the Moon and Neptune—its two planetary rulers on three levels—exoteric, esoteric and hierarchical. 7. Secondarily, (assuredly, but not exclusively) Libra transmits R5, R7 and R3 through Venus, Uranus and Saturn—its three planetary rulers on three levels—exoteric, esoteric and hierarchical. 8. Cancer in relation to the transmission of the third ray: Ray III is expressing itself through Cancer, as far as the mass is concerned…” (EA 491) 8. Libra in relation to the transmission of the third ray: “Libra is also found relatively inactive in the triangle of Ray III. Today there is no true balance but the opposition of spirit and matter is so violent that the Libran force is relatively quiescent.(EA 491) 9. Color: violet 9. Color: indigo. Green (strong Saturn and center of the spectrum) should not be ignored. 10. Creative Hierarchy number V (unmanifested) Mass Life, Veiling the Christ 10. Creative Hierarchy number III (manifested) which is number VII (of all twelve). Lesser Builders, Conferring Form, the Triple Flowers. 11. Cancer has no specific relation to the first three initiations. Since Neptune (inducing love and inclusive idealism) is so important at the second initiation (EA 71, 297-298), Cancer must be implicated. After the third initiation, the Cancerian can become “the Crab, who clears the ocean of matter which flows around the soul of man” (EA 62) In subtle ways Cancer must be related to the fourth (EA 218) and eighth initiations (relating to unmanifested Hierarchy V—eighth from below). 11. Associated with the regulatory, balancing, reorienting first initiation; with the proportion-inducing, ideal-subduing, de-glamorizing second initiation, and with the decisive, nirvanic sixth initiation—the initiation of Decision. 12. Cancer can be reasonably associated with the protective and nourishment-giving centers in the breasts and, particularly, with the instinctual, bi-polar, emotionally sensitive solar plexus center. The disease, cancer, is strongly associated with a disturbed, congested solar plexus; the sign and the disease are, in fact, related. The sacral center (involved in form-building) cannot be ignored. The chakras in the ‘gripping’ hands are related. When Neptune (the esoteric and hierarchical ruler) functions buddhically, the sign Cancer can also be related to the compassionate, humanity-embracing heart center. 12. Libra can be reasonably associated with the sexually-unitive, form-generating sacral center, and with the decision-making, force-balancing, triadally responsive ajna center. Libra has so much of the third ray (as do its rulers Uranus and Saturn, with Venus ruling Taurus, the sign of the throat) that throat center influence is to be expected. Libra can be connected be connected with the center at the base of the spine, from which stems the Sushumna—the “royal road” to Shamballa. (cf. EA 168) 13. The zodiacal signs influence the Monad of every human being (EA 411, 637, TCF 1191); the influence from Gemini makes it possible for the “Brother” who is the “prodigal son” to go forth into a “far country” (as the Monad-in-substantial-immersion), and yet, remain ‘at home’ within the Father’s House as the “elder Brother” Who did not go forth (i.e., as the Monad undiminished upon its own level of consciousness). Thus is the Monad “in the world yet not of the world”. Gemini endows the Monad with its all-pervasive omnipresence relative to the human energy system. “Having pervaded the entire Universe with a fragment of myself, I remain.” 13. The zodiacal signs influence the Monad of every human being (EA 411, 637, TCF 1191); the influence from Libra governs the ‘Path of Return”, by means of which the immersed Monad regains its originating source. (cf. EA 168) Libra also endows the Monad with power from the Dragon and Pleiades and ensures that the Monad performs its part in the balancing of planetary karma, for every Monad is a cell within the planetary Logos. 14. Within the Triad—Gemini, the third sign, is related to higher manas (the third aspect of the Triad). Higher manas formulates into abstract thought the revelations of the ‘idea-patterns’ to be found upon the buddhic plane. Gemini, as its dualistic symbol reveals, is also related to the divine love, pure reason and intuitive revelations of buddhi, the second aspect of the Spiritual Triad. 14. In relation to the Triad—it can be said that Libra (the ruler of the third manifested Creative Hierarchy—the Triple Flowers) rules the Spiritual Triad as a whole. Within the Triad Libra, transmitting constellationally (exoterically) only the third ray, and related to “super-mind”, is clearly influential in relation to the higher mind—higher manas. Libra and Saturn are also express through the atmic plane, and hence are related to the principle—atma—Spiritual Will. Not surprisingly, Libra “admits the soul” to Shamballa. Eventually, Libra, ruling the union of all polarities, will be shown to be related to buddhi as well. 15. In relation to the Solar Angel, and the soul-consciousness (and causal body) through which it expresses—Gemini can be seen as governing the pulsations of Solar-Angelic thought and vitality which rhythmically stimulate the personality. Gemini can be associated with the attempt the Solar Angel to ‘communicate’ with the personality. 15. In relation to the Solar Angel, and the soul-consciousness (and causal body) through which it expresses—Libra represents the skill, wisdom and power of the Solar Angel to supervise a balanced development in its personality. Libra is one of the major signs of karma, which the Solar Angel wisely administrates to ensure that the personality is eventually governed by the Law of Love. 16. Within the Personality—Cancer can be identified with the memory and retentiveness of the lower mental nature; with the sensitivity and receptivity of the astral nature; with the de-vitalization or insufficient vitalization of the etheric nature; and, with the tenacity of the physical elemental as it seeks to perpetuate the integrity of its life. In general, Cancer (through the Moon) is especially associated with the dense physical form as a first solar system ‘residue’, and with the fourth or personality elemental (arising from the lesser three). (The vehicular focus and its degree of prominence, depends upon the stage of evolutionary development.) 16. Within the Personality—Libra can be identified with the evaluative, judicial and decision-making processes of the lower mental nature; with balancing and proportion-inducing processes within the astral nature; with the harmonizing of energy flows within the etheric nature; and, in general, with the energetic balance of the dense physical form. Libra has a special connection with the mental permanent atom. (EA 302) (The vehicular focus and its degree of prominence, depends upon the stage of evolutionary development.) 17. Stage within a Preliminary Fourfold Meditative Process: Incarnation, Embodiment 17. Stage of Meditative Consciousness: Contemplation. “Libra—Contemplation—Life of soul and form is balanced. Neither dominates. Equilibrium. An interlude wherein the soul organises itself for battle and the personality waits. This is the probationary path. Duality known.” 18. The Crisis of Incarnation characterized by the process/quality of Individualization 18. The Crisis of Balance followed by Reversal. (cf. EA 101)
Wider Relationships: Cosmic and Systemic
Cancer In Comparison With Libra 1. Expressive principally of the third or Intelligence aspect—in relation to matter. (EA 351) The incarnation process under the rulership of Cancer “is initiation into the creative third aspect, the matter aspect and the world of intelligent activity.” (EH 144) Since ruled by Neptune and related to the Pleiades, Cancer is correlated to buddhi (TCF 1162), and thus, also, is linked to the second aspect of divinity. 1. Expressive, principally of the third aspect of the divinity, with an expression of the second aspect slowly emerging.” “This sign is consequently closely connected with the third aspect of the Godhead.” (EA 243) “It is through a study of Libra that light upon the third aspect will come.” (EA 244) “Libra—Divine Love—Understanding” (EA333) 2. Cosmically associated primarily with the Pleiades. “Pleiades—Cancer—Venus—Humanity” (EA 416) 2. Related cosmically to the Pleiades. “Libra—is related to and transmits the potencies of the Pleiades.” (EA 349) Libra is also related to the Dragon and the Dragon to the Pleiades. “The adepts who choose this Path are called esoterically the ‘beneficent dragons,’ and the energy with which they work and the stream of living force upon which they are found emanates from the constellation of the Dragon, working through the zodiacal sign Libra.” (TCF 1245) D.K. speaks of the “…buddhic force, which is transmitted via the Seven Sisters or the Pleiades from a constellation called the Dragon…” (TCF 1162) Libra is related to one of the stars in the Great Bear. (A triangle?—Mizar-Libra-Sun?) (R&I 404) 3. Three Constellations Connected (symbolically) with Cancer: a) Ursa Major—the Great Bear; b) Ursa Minor—the Little Bear; c) Argo—the Ship. (LOH 90-92) Another constellation Connected with Cancer is Praesepe—the Beehive. There are eighty three stars to be found ‘within’ this constellation. (LOH 87-88) Tradition connects both Ursa Major and Minor with “flock(s) of sheep” and “sheepfold(s)” 3. Three Constellations Connected with Libra: a) The Southern Cross; b) Lupus—the Wolf; c) Corona—the Crown (LOH 137-138)

Subtle Relationships Between Rays,
Zodiacal and Planetary Energies
Cancer In Comparison With Libra 1. Cancer transmits the third ray constellationally. 1. Libra transmits the third ray, constellationally. Uranus, the esoteric ruler, is closely associated with the third ray (EA 138, 200), and may well transmit this ray as its personality ray. Saturn, exalted and ruling hierarchically, transmits the third ray monadically and probably, in addition, through its soul. 2. Cancer transmits the seventh ray constellationally. 2. Libra is the seventh sign of the zodiac on both the reversed and ordinary wheels and, hence, has numerical affinity with the seventh ray. Uranus, ruling Libra esoterically, transmits the seventh ray. Saturn, ruling hierarchically and exalted, has seventh ray associations, through its rulership of the dense systemic physical plane and cosmic physical plane—being the permanent atom of the latter. (TCF 406). 3. Cancer is the fourth sign of the zodiac on the reversed wheel and, hence, has numerical affinity with the number four and with the fourth ray. 3. Libra, because of its oscillatory nature, may well have some subtle fourth ray associations—destined to emerge more in other world periods. Venus, too, seems to have the higher more harmonious part of the fourth ray associated with it. But there are no direct fourth ray connections linking these two constellations. 4. Cancer is the tenth sign of the zodiac on the clockwise wheel and, hence, has numerical affinity with the number one and with the first ray. This is not a strong representation of the first ray. Only the presence of a generically veiled Vulcan, which could be described as the ‘will asleep in matter’, would bring in the first ray—mostly from the angle of resistance. However, a great first ray power is indicated as latent—inured in matter. 4. Libra governs the entry into Shamballa, hence must be associated with the first ray. “Libra admits the soul into the world centre which we call Shamballa, for it is the polar opposite of Aries which is the place of beginnings” (EA 168) .Uranus, the esoteric ruler of Libra, transmits the first ray “esoterically”—i.e., monadically. “Uranus is the home of ‘fire electric’.” (TCF 1154) Saturn, the hierarchical ruler of Libra (also exalted in this sign) transmits the first ray powerfully. (EA 450) “This is why Saturn is so powerful a ruler and transmitter to the Earth of the dynamic quality of the first ray of power” ( EA 621) 5. The Moon, the exoteric ruler of cancer, transmits the fourth ray. 5. See #3 above. 6. The Moon is closely related to the third ray. (EA 280)
6. See #1 above.
7. The Moon is closely related to the seventh ray, through its rulership of the seventh manifested Creative Hierarchy, and its general association with dense physical matter. 7. See #2 above. 8. Neptune, the esoteric and hierarchical ruler of Cancer (and exalted, with Jupiter, as well), transmits the sixth ray. 8. Counting from Pisces as the first sign (which the Tibetan also does) Libra is the sixth sign on the clockwise wheel, and, hence, numerically resonant with the sixth ray. Venus, exoteric ruler of Libra, is closely associated with the sixth ray (TCF 595), and probably transmits this ray monadically. If one begins with Pisces as one counts signs upon the ordinary wheel (and this the Tibetan does at least once), Libra is the sixth sign, thus having resonance with the sixth ray. 9. Neptune also transmits the second ray, monadically. (EPI 421) 9. Libra is also the second sign when numbering by polarities (Aries, Libra, Taurus, Scorpio, etc., and, hence, has numerical resonance with the second ray, which it may more powerfully express in a future world period. Venus (exoteric ruler), called by the Tibetan, “pure love wisdom” can be considered as transmitting the second ray. (EA 281) 10. Neptune is associated with the fourth plane, the buddhic plane, and with the energy of buddhi. “”No man begins to coordinate the buddhic vehicle until he comes under the influence of Neptune…. When this happens, his personality horoscope will show this influence as dominant” (TCF 899) 10. See #3 above. 11. Neptune, as “God of the Waters” is associated with “matter” and, hence, with the third ray. “Neptune is as you know, the God of the waters, and the term “water” covers many angles of the esoteric wisdom, such as: The whole concept of matter—universal and itemised….” (EA 275) 11. See #1 above. 12. Jupiter is exalted in Cancer and transmits the second ray. 12. See #9 above. 13. Jupiter is exalted in Cancer and transmits the seventh ray through “ritualistic worship.” (EA 660) 13. See #2 above. 14. Jupiter (exalted in Cancer) through its enthusiasm and aspirational nature has defensible connections to the sixth ray. 14. See #8 above. 15. There are no definite fifth ray transmissions through Cancer. Again, only a possibly generically veiled Vulcan has fifth ray associations.
15. Venus, the exoteric ruler of Libra, transmits the fifth ray. Uranus has strong fifth ray associations through its rulership of “exoteric science” (EA 149), and Saturn is easily seen as associated with the concrete mind (the generic ray of which is the fifth), and with the Law of Cleavages. “This fifth ray energy operates in connection with the Law of Cleavages.” (R&I 602).

Evolutionary Developments in Libra: ‘What appears in Aries as spiritual energy…reaches a point of equilibrium in Libra, in which sign soul and personality achieve a balance of cooperation…” (EA 93) 9. Cancer in Relation to Humanity: “Cancer admits the soul into the world centre which we call Humanity.” (EA 168) 9. Libra in Relation to Shamballa: “Libra admits the soul into the world centre which we call Shamballa, for it is the polar opposite of Aries which is the place of beginnings.” (EA 168) 10. Cancer—Manifestation: “…the objective appearing of the thoughtform which God has thus created and in which is embodied His desire, His will, His purpose and His plan. This is Manifestation, or Cancer in activity.” (EA 239) 10. Libra—Legislation: “the working out of the plan under spiritual and natural law which is evolutionary in expression; this is the goal of evolution and its expression and is steadily revealing the nature of God, for the laws under which this solar system of ours is governed are expressions of God's quality and character. This is Legislation, or Libra in activity. (EA 239-240) 11. The Evolutionary Process in Relation to Manifestation in Cancer: “He manifests consciously in the world that which he intends to carry forward and Cancer then reveals to him its secret.” (EA 240) 11. The Evolutionary Process in Relation to Legislation in Libra: “He becomes his own legislator, ruling his conduct wisely, controlling his impulses intellectually and then Libra enables him to balance the material and the spiritual law.” (EA 240) 12. Cancer—the Matter Aspect predominates. Spirit is imprisoned. 12. Libra—Balancing Spirit and Matter: “Libra demonstrates the perfect balance of spirit and matter which first came together in Aries. This balance and this relation of the great opposites, spirit and matter, is symbolised for us in the personality situation of balancing the pairs of opposites on the astral plane, and finding between them the “narrow razor-edged path” which leads the man into the kingdom of the soul.” (EA 168) 13. “Cancer, the constellation under which the Law of Rebirth is applied and administered.” (EA 168) 13. Libra, the constellation in which karma is understood and balanced. 14. “Instinct, governing desire—Cancer. Mass unevolved consciousness. I desire” (EA 178) (MC) 14. In Libra—evaluation, judgment. Equilibrized consciousness. 15. In Cancer, “the processes of physical incarnation go forward…” (EA 230) 15. In Libra, “…the point of balance is eventually reached between spiritual man and personal man…”. The “reversal of the wheel” follows. 16. A Triple Differentiated Relationship, in Cancer: “In Cancer this living substance assumed a triple differentiated relationship to which we give the names of Life (Aries) of Consciousness (Taurus, the next sign to Aries) and manifested duality (Gemini, the sign preceding Cancer) and these three, blended together, came into outer manifestation in Cancer, thus completing an esoteric quaternary of great importance. . Here the first major fusion, inchoate and unrealised, took place.” (EA 313-314) 16. Balancing that Triple Relationship, In Libra: “In Libra, these reach a point of balance and of a somewhat static equilibrium (later to be disturbed in Scorpio)…” (EA 314) 17. The Expression of the Third Ray through Cancer: “Libra is also found relatively inactive in the triangle of Ray III. Today there is no true balance but the opposition of spirit and matter is so violent that the Libran force is relatively quiescent. Ray III is expressing itself through Cancer, as far as the mass is concerned…” (EA 491) 17. The Expression of the Third Ray through Libra: “. Ray III is expressing itself through Cancer, as far as the mass is concerned…” (EA 491) 18. Cancer—for Undeveloped Man: “The blind unit is lost. The mass.” (EA 332) 18. Libra—for the Undeveloped Man: “Unbalanced fiery passion. Human love.” (EA 333) 19. Cancer—for Advanced Man: “The unit awakens to that which is around. The House.” (EA 332) 19. Libra—for the Advanced Man: “The weighing of the opposites. Devotion and aspiration.” (EA 333) 20. Cancer—for the Disciple/Initiate: “The Whole is seen as one. Humanity.” (EA 332) 20. Libra—for the Disciple/Initiate: “Balance attained. Divine love. Understanding.” (EA 333) 21. Yearly Opportunity in Relation to Cancer: When the Sun is in Cancer the disciple may attempt to increase his power to manifest (to em-‘body’), his intuitive faculties, and cultivate the sense of wholeness. 21. Yearly Opportunity in Relation to Libra: When the Sun is in Libra, an individual may cultivate proportional action and response, and both balance and equilibrium within his own energy system, as well as between his energy system and the environment in which it expresses. 22. The life of the Christ from the Cancerian perspective: “The potency of this sign is expressed for us by Christ in the oft misinterpreted words: ‘Other sheep I have which are not of this fold, them also I must bring.’ This refers to the mass consciousness in contradistinction to the initiate consciousness of His disciples. Cancer is a mass sign. 22. The Life of the Christ from a Libran Perspective: “Christ stood at the point of balance in human evolution; He stood between the old world and the new, between the East and the West. In the Christian era comes a ‘point of balance’ or that ‘crisis of equilibrium’ in the human kingdom. (EA 567) 23. Tendency towards attachment 23. A balance between attachment and detachment 24. In Cancer—marriage serves tradition and the perpetuation of the values of form 24. In Libra—marriage serves the mutual enhancement of identity 25. In Cancer, thus, marriage based upon the fulfillment of traditional roles 25. In Libra, thus, marriage, potentially based upon the interaction of two authentic individuals, fulfilling themselves. 26. Dependency 26. Co-dependency 27. Marriage within the context of the family 27. The ‘marriage’ of soul and personality 28. The clan, the tribe 28. “Egoisme-a-deux”—the egoistic partnership or marriage. 29. Negation of individuality under the pressure of the traditional group 29. Ideally, enhancement of individuality through mutual respect and understanding 30. The unselfish fulfillment of family responsibility 30.

Social consciousness and the emergence of mind. 36. Socially traditional or reactionary (lunar influence) 36. Socially progressive (under Uranus) 37. Subjectivity—evaluation subject to the bias of feelings 37. Objectivity—evaluation more subject to true vision 38. Biased by attachments 38. Inclined towards an unbiased perspective 39. Thus, bias and lack of proportion 39. Seeing things in proportion 40. Sentimentality 40. Fair-minded evaluation 41. Intuition—under Neptune (LFC, CC) 41. Mind (in a large sense)—under Uranus and Saturn (LMC, FC, LCF) 42. More emotional; oriented towards feeling and sensation 42. More mental, or balancing mind and emotions 43.

Fair exchange Similarities and Points of Cooperation Between the Influences
Similarities and Points of Cooperation
Between the Zodiacal Influences
Both Cancer and Libra are Cardinal signs and both are magnetized by relationship but Cancer gives familial relationships and Libra relationship between equals.
Both distribute the 3rd Ray constellationally and hence are involved with manas and intelligence.
The fifth creative hierarchy under Cancer, itself the synthesis of the five aspects of manas, and interestingly Libra is the ruler of the fifth creative hierarchy counting from below upwards, both share a fair measure of caution which comes through the 3rd Ray.
Cancer is ever protective and aware of the possibility of repercussion upon that which it seeks to protect.
Libra instinctively understands consequences and the concept that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Karma itself comes not only under 1st Ray law but under the 3rd Ray of intelligence and balance.
Interestingly the fates associated with the 3rd Ray are ever considered weavers and spinners.
Looking at the three air signs:Aquarius represents the 1st Ray,
Gemini the 2nd, and
Libra most probably the 3rd.
Of the three water signs:Scorpio represents the 1st Ray,
Pisces the 2nd and
Cancer the 3rd.
Through Cancer also comes the second Ray and because Libra is the 7th sign and is esoterically ruled by the 7th Ray planet Uranus – much 7th Ray comes through as well, therefore both signs are effective in creative manifestation.
Libra is the anchor of the 1st Ray sign Aries found opposite it and Cancer is the anchor of the 1st Ray sign Capricorn found opposite it.
Both Aries and Capricorn are related to the father aspect which must ground itself in matter. From one perspective the natives of both Cancer and Libra suffer from a bound condition. With Cancer the child is bound to the parent and the parent to the child. With Libra the partners or lovers are bound together.
There is a need in both instances for establishing a degree of independent functioning within the relationship for both signs conduce to a degree of co-dependence. With Cancer it is much less likely to achieve the necessary detachment because only soft-line energies come through the planetary rulers and no 1st Ray at all, whereas for Libra, the hierarchical rulership of Saturn and the esoteric rulership of Uranus, convey 1st Ray energy.
Both signs as well, are interested in a degree of permanence. Cancer, sensitive as it is, is interested in a condition of changelessness and complete protection and stability for it represents the foundation of the chart. Libra is also interested in stability, its powerful 7th Ray gives it this tendency and the law of which it is the representative, is a method of producing stability within society.
Sometimes, Libra too, represents the static situation of an achieved status quo or of a balance which has moved to the point of stasis.
Interestingly, both of these signs are associated with money. Cancer particularly is connected with the Law of Economy, as the 3rd and 7th Rays, the financial Rays, passing through it indicate.
Libra is associated with money as a medium of exchange and a medium of equilibrizing relationships within society.
Both signs therefore, seek situations which cannot be easily disrupted and some of the greatest stresses in life occur with either the disruption of the family or the disruption of relationships.
Equal to this of course, stands the disruption of the career ruled by Capricorn, another sign which seeks to achieve a degree of stability and permanence.
