In its eternal dance with Mother Earth, the Sun‘s southernmost reach at the Tropic of Capricorn causes a Summer Solstice within lands around and below the Equator. At this same moment, the Sun is at its greatest distance from the Tropic of Cancer, causing people in Earth‘s Northern Hemisphere to experience their shortest day and longest night of the year. Certain birds have flown South as the cold-shouldered Winter Solstice arrives in the North. In Latin, the term Solstice comes from the words sol – Sun, and sistere – to stand still. While southern climes begin to enjoy their longer days, to Northerners the Sun appears to have stood still as their days noticeably shorten and their lands fall into a deep wintry sleep.
This death-of-sorts is a 3-day transitional/mourning period which ends on December 25th. Northern Hemisphere traditions were created to then RELEASE and celebrate the “Resurrection or Birth of the Sun” on this post-Winter Solstice date that marked the shift in Earth’s seasons. According to scholars, Christianity personified this annual solar activity by creating a Euro-patriarchal savior-figure whose “official” birth-date was then configured to correspond to the climax of this 3-day drama [see “CAESAR’S MESSIAH:…” link @43:00].
Cycles of the sun have naturally been important in the planting and harvesting calendars of agricultural communities on both sides of the Equator. The inverse (longer days and shorter nights) occurs in the Northern Hemisphere with the Summer Solstice in June, when the Sun reaches its northernmost point from the Equator at the Tropic of Cancer. And then in between the Winter & Summer Solstices at the Spring & Fall Equinoxes (March & September), when day and night become approximately equal in length. The Eternal Dance is cosmically-calibrated.
The Equator, & both Tropics of Capricorn and Cancer are key ley lines which demarcate and help choreograph the S-N energies of Earth‘s seasons throughout the year/world. All run latitudinally [E-W] across the African continent versus the longitudinal [N-S] Prime Meridian which demarcates east from west, and sets the world’s official time-zones [Greenwich Mean Time – GMT] from England (one of 3 European Prime Meridian countries) even though longitude-zero also runs through the African countries of Togo, Ghana, Burkina Faso, Mali and Algeria. Rather than Eurocentric/colonial/imperialist reference points, the Nile Valley, which is characterized by God Djehuti as the “Temple of the World,” may provide better understanding of what the more optimal/holistic navigational settings may be for humanity/Mother Earth vis-à-vis Her related Heavenly bodies and observances. Which is why the two televised pageants that took place in Egypt (one of Africa’s Tropic of Cancer countries) that ran at strategic moments during this Gregorian calendar year of 2021 should be of note to all:
- “The Pharaoh’s Golden Parade” which took place on April 3rd, 2021. The regular annual Easter-weekend programming in recognition of a Christian account of a messiah’s death [Winter] and resurrection [Spring] was interrupted by the spectacle of the unearthed remains of twenty-two ancient Egyptian royals being relocated from the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir Square to the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization in Fustat. The mummies that were transported during this made-for-TV event in order of their reign were: King Seqenenre Tao; Queen Ahmose-Nefertari; King Amenhotep I; Queen Meritamun; King Thutmose I; King Thutmose II; Queen Hatshepsut; King Thutmose III; King Amenhotep II; King Thutmose IV; King Amenhotep III; Queen Tiye; King Seti I; King Ramesses II; King Merenptah; King Seti II; King Siptah; King Ramesses III; King Ramesses IV; King Ramesses V; King Ramesses VI; & King Ramesses IX.
- “The Path of God” between Ipet-Resyt (“The Southern Sanctuary” – now Luxor Temple) and Ipet-Sut (“The Most Select of Places” – now Karnak Temple) was reopened in another globally televised spectacle on November 25th, 2021 – officially Thanksgiving Day this year in America. The historical Thanksgiving narrative for some is one of peace and shared prosperity between Native Americans and ‘Pilgrims.’ Among Native people however, this is a day of mourning the darkness of their genocide, reaffirming their resilience as a people who’ve had to custodian and honor their sacred ancestral relationship to Mother Earth amidst white plunder and subsequent myth-making. Also known as the Avenue of Sphinxes, the two-mile Path of God was Kmt’s site of the Opet Festival during which the annual flooding of the Nile upon which present-day Egypt remains dependent was celebrated. The sacred river flows from two main sources in the heart of Africa & womb of humanity, one of which is located within a country now fighting on behalf of its democracy against increasingly aggressive/corrosive forces of western propaganda.
#NOMORE is the recent global African cry for RELEASE from the continued plundering of the Motherland’s spiritual, natural, human, and cultural treasures by enslavers, colonizers, architects of apartheid, and western propaganda machines with their neo-colonial pretenses of promoting “salvation” and “democracy.” It’s classic Set – god of chaos, the desert, storms, disease, violence and foreign oppressors – archetypal antagonist in Kemetic mythology. “#NOMORE!” – the rallying cry of Heru (archetypal protagonist & s/hero) was spurred against current western alliances with terrorists who are fighting against democracy etc. in Ethiopia. It’s ironic, given America’s own anti-democracy events of January 6th, 2021. As Africa’s oldest independent nation, Ethiopia has managed to repatriate some of its stolen artifacts from Europe, including (in 2005) one of her giant tkhn/obelisks that had been installed in Rome, capital of the country that failed to colonize her following the racist 1884 Berlin Conference.
Roman Emperors were fascinated by these symbols of African Divinity, and Rome currently harbors the most tkhns (13) in the world. Most were stolen from ancient Egypt, including the 320-ton “Vaticano Obelisk” (stolen from Alexandria by Caligula in 37AD) which now sits in St. Peter’s Square; and the 330-ton “Lateran Obelisk” – the largest tkhn in the world that was stolen by Constantine II from Ipet-Sut (“The Most Select of Places” – Temple of Amun at Karnak) – which now sits in Vatican City, Rome. So, does the emperor [Set] have clothes? We will see even clearer in 2022, Gregorian time…
Was “The Path of God” diverted? Was there some kind of terrible misreading of Kmt’s ancient Mysteries and symbols? Is the current ‘custodianship’ of African treasures part of the ‘mystery’ humanity needs to discover itself within? A proverb from Ipet-Resyt (“The Southern Sanctuary” – now Luxor Temple) advises: A phenomenon always arises from the interaction of complementarity. If you want something look for the complement that will elicit it. Set causes Heru. Heru redeems Set. Another proverb from the same temple advises: When the governing class isn’t chosen for quality it is chosen for material wealth: this always means decadence, the lowest stage a society can reach.

Look at the foundation of a culture and you’ll find its strength. In the United States. Black women are at the bottom of the caste system. And one will find a Black women in every “powerful” dynasty in the United States. Things that make you go hmm. 💓
Sis, your comment reminded me of a quote from Anna Julia Cooper (who coincidentally graduated from the same HBCU I attended as an undergrad). She said: “Only the black woman can say ‘when and where I enter, in the quiet, undisputed dignity of my womanhood, without violence and without suing or special patronage, then and there the whole …race enters with me.” ✊🏾 ❤️
Powerful! This resonates with how I’ve been feeling lately. “in the quiet” because “Power moves, it is never moved.” Thank you for sharing this, Sis. These words serve mightily.
