9 of Diamonds – Ursa Major
The sun is in Ursa Major from June 12th to June 21st for it’s final leg of Gemini. The most easily recognized of all constellations, in the west known as the Big Dipper but for the ancients it was the Great Bear. The Chaldeans called it the bear and the Finnish did as well. When the first Europeans arrived in the Americas imagine their surprise to find the American Indians pointed to the great bear in the sky. On the most remote parts of the earth, far from where astrology finds it’s roots, we find the same myths for the star groups. The Egyptians considered this star group a hippopotamus, in their defense there were not many bear indigenous to north Africa.
