Cancer is 1 of 12 constellations of the zodiac. Its name is Latin for crab and it is commonly represented as one. Its astrological symbol is Cancer.. (Unicode ♋). Cancer is a medium-size constellation with an area of 506 square degrees and its stars are rather faint, its brightest star Beta Cancri having an apparent magnitude of 3.5. It contains two stars with known planets, including 55 Cancri, which has 5: 1 super-earth and 4 gas giants, one of which is in the habitable zone and as of such has expected temperatures similar to Earth...

Cancer is said to have been the place for the Akkadian Sun of the South, perhaps from its position at the summer solstice in very remote antiquity. But afterwards it was associated with the 4th month Duzu (June–July in the modern western calendar), and was known as the Northern Gate of Sun..On the day before they planned to leave, June 17, 1952, he received a rush order of X-plosives for a film set, and he began work on it in his home laboratory...

John Whiteside Parsons (born Marvel Whiteside Parsons; October 2, 1914 – June 17, 1952), better known as Jack Parsons, was an American rocket engineer, chemist, and Thelemite occultist. A pioneer in solid-fuel rocket research and development, he was affiliated with the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), and was one of the principal founders of both the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) and the Aerojet Engineering Corporation..Having few friends, he lived a solitary childhood, and spent much time reading, taking a particular interest in works of mythology, Arthurian legend, and the Arabian Nights.. Through the work of Jules Verne he became interested in science fiction , and became a keen reader of pulp magazines like Amazing Stories.. It was this interest in science fiction that led to his early interest in rocketry..he had also begun to investigate occultism, and independently performed a ritual intended to invoke the Devil into his bedroom..

Parsons and his wife were initiated into the Agape Lodge of the Ordo Templi Orientis on February 15, 1941, with Parsons adopting the Thelemic motto of Thelema Obtenteum Proedero Amoris Nuptiae, a Latin mistranslation of "The establishment of Thelema through the rituals of love".. The initials of this motto spelled out T.O.P.A.N, also serving as the declaration "To Pan." Commenting on Parsons' errors of translation, in jest Crowley remarked that "the motto which you mention is couched in a language beyond my powers of understanding." In the same vein, Parsons adopted the Thelemic title Frater T.O.P.A.N—with T.O.P.A.N represented in Kabbalistic numerology as 210 (the name with which he frequently signed letters to occult associates)—while Helen became known as Soror Grimaud..Providing a thrust 5 times more powerful than GALCIT-27 and again reducing takeoff distance by 30%, Malina declared that "We now have something that really works and we should be able to help give the Fascists hell!..Describing this as the Babalon Working, he hoped to bring about the incarnation of a Thelemite female messiah, Babalon, onto Earth, with Cameron acting as the "Scarlet Woman" in these rituals. He also, through immaculate conception, aimed to magically fertilize a "Moonchild" (a reference to Crowley's 1917 novel of the same name), which when born to a woman somewhere on Earth nine months following the working's completion would become the messiah of Thelema... is always discovering odd scraps of magical wisdom and making a tremendous fuss about its cleverness..Every one interprets everything in terms of his own experience.. If you say anything which does not touch a precisely similar spot in another man's brain, he either misunderstands you, or doesn't understand you at all...
