Lightbulb Grain & Compass-ion

For Virgo ♍ and her main star Spica The MUL.APIN associates Absin "The Furrow" with "the goddess Shala's ear of corn", and Shala is conventionally depicted as holding an ear of corn on boundary stones of the Kassite era...Shala was an ancient Sumerian goddess of grain and compassion.. The symbols of grain and compassion combine to reflect the importance of agriculture in the mythology of Sumer, and the belief that an abundant harvest was an act of compassion from the Gods.. Other traditions identify Shala as wife of the grain god Dagan, or consort of the storm god Ishkur/Adadthe.. She carries a double-headed mace-scimitar embellished with lion heads...

UR.GU.LA "The Lion" ♌ Λέων (Leōn) Siṃha (सिंह) In astrology, the ruler of Leo is the Sun..Surya is the chief of the Navagraha, Indian "Classical planets" and important elements of Hindu astrology.

The astronomer al-Biruni says that the alpha or brightest star of Gemini is in the outstretched paw of Leo and that the second brightest or beta star is in the paw not stretched out.. The ancient Arabs extended the figure far beyond the limits assigned to the constellation in modern astronomy... must be careful not to offend the Naturals. If our crops fail, we shall be obliged to trade with them. Once we're established here, we may go up the river and seek a route to the other sea..Come, spirit, help us sing the story of our land.. You are our mother.. You are our field of corn.. We rise from out of the soul of you...
