How to be an Aquarian, even if you're not!
“Lots of people like rainbows. Children make wishes on them, artists paint them, dreamers chase them, but the Aquarian is ahead of everybody. He lives on one. What's more, he's taken it apart and examined it, piece by piece, color by color, and he still believes in it. It isn't easy to believe in something after you know what it's really like, but the Aquarian is essentially a realist, even though his address is tomorrow, with a wild-blue-yonder zip code.”
― Linda Goodman, Linda Goodman's Sun Signs
We are now well and truly inside the portals of Aquarius.
Although it is the eleventh house it always seems like the first. This year it also seems Aquarius has a double whammy, we have truly entered the age of Aquarius, leaving behind the heavy but innovative industrial revolution and are about to take up with its offspring, the technological revolution. This bodes well for us spiritual types because tech shares the ether with spirit and, as such, maybe we can expect great things in our communities, industry and philosophy.
I think we have been preparing for this for a long time.
Back in 2011 we were advised by anyone and everyone that seemed to be in the know that we were on the threshold of moving into a higher vibration, a new paradigm in consciousness, time would speed up and the Earth would develop a wobble. Yet, New Year’s day 2012 came along and everything was exactly the same! What the great unwashed overlooked was that nothing happens overnight. Evolution can have a very slow orbit and nine years later, it transpires, the spiritual pundits may well have been onto something.
Around that time the whole world and his wife were creating their own lives on the internet. Social media was flourishing and no-one was anyone without a website of some description.
Personal computers became an essential kit for every household and was the centre of the universe for one and all. This was all a result of a technological trajectory which had begun much earlier, really nothing is ever by accident.
So, what has this got to do with Aquarius 2021 you may well ask?
Well now, let’s take the idea that time has been speeded up. My sense is that due to our interaction with the internet, we are capable of holding many more thoughts. Instead of a few hundred per second, we can now process a few thousand. Frequent use of the internet created new neural pathways that give a sense of time being faster. We perhaps measure time through a mental process. These pathways are aligned to the rapid response in a computer which mimics the brain. Not only that but kids coming into the world have these new pathways in place and will expand even further into the following generations.
No wonder we are to leave behind the dinosaurs of a bygone age. The Pied Piper is calling us into the mountain, beware that nobody should be left behind.
Let’s take a peek at The Star card.
The reason for this is that The Star is ruled by Aquarius which is also connected to the Fool and Uranus. Saturn gets a nod too as he is also connected to Aquarius and the World! This makes for a very interesting bunch of cards. Maybe when you have a moment you can line them up next to each other and take a glimpse.
The Star card embodies the Aquarian in all of us.
It inspires the altruistic humanitarian in each of us, it encourages us to shoot for the sky and reminds us that everything can be healed.
The cosmic dreamer and the mystical visionary know the stars are the most magical expression in the endless skies and The Star card is an aspect of that.
The stars, a rich mythological pageantry of our ancestral heritage, an interstellar network of ephemeral influences, all the while zodiac signposts that symbolise the fate and destiny of every sentient being on the planet including the Earth herself.
If the Star is an essence of Aquarius and The Star is a divine point in the spirit of the onlooker then we can assume, that the overarching meaning for Aquarius, especially as an era, is that it carries the divine spark, the potential for transcendence and an elevation into the higher wisdom of universal consciousness.
Remember your visions and your dreams.
How zeitgeist that we should be emerging into a brand new world, post pandemic (eventually) and that we should be breaking through the limitations and encountering that which lies beyond the mundane mental faculty into a more imaginative, spiritual state. New life, new awareness. Clearing away the debris of outmoded desires we can reconstruct all that which will serve us and bring us directly into the miracle of our own mystery. All that is needed is effort, energy and plenty of reach.
We can expect a time of dramatic insight.
Looking to the future we can see the potential and possibilities, it is up to us to make the dream real but first the world of the dreamer must be changed. The dream is looking for the dreamer, it longs to become and to be integrated into the everyday world.
When we allow the universe to flow through us the magic happens. Live the dream.
SOME PROMPTS FOR YOUR DREAM.
Do I have a vision?
If not, why not?
What do I have to do to manifest my dream?
Am I limiting my thinking?
Is what I hope to manifest in alignment with my reality?
Am I brave enough to live the dream?
What should I do to make a clear path?
Remember humility and gratitude.

Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it!’’ Goethe.
