19 MAY 2017, AQUARIUS
The Aquarius energy archetype has the water-bearer as its emblem, but Aquarius is not a water-sign; it’s an air sign. So why the water-bearer? The Aquarius image shows a human pouring water, and this human is in accord with their spirit self, which in turn is in sync with the natural core essence of ‘The All’. This human-spirit/original-spirit union shows the air element, which is all about conscious choice: the choice to align with life-affirming energies for the good of all. Any human becomes the water-bearer when aligned in this way, pouring their personal version of renewing, regenerating clear waters for the benefit of humanity. However, it’s just as possible for a human and their spirit self to be aligned with conditioning and beliefs that might seem positive, even though they are not, and to be inadvertently pouring polluted waters into the collective experience.
A human when aligned with their true self, quite naturally without even knowing it or trying to, purifies the waters of humanity – the pains, the suffering, the ills – and revives humanity with fresh perspective and heart-clean clarity. This could be a taxi driver, a shop assistant or a call centre rep as much as it could be a doctor, social worker or healing practitioner. The Aquarius archetype helps us ‘raise the vibration’, improve awareness and reset perspectives for opportunities for equality and fair treatment for all, which means every single human is equally capable of being ‘the water-bearer’. This week’s 3rd Qtr Moon in Aquarius is exactly conjunct the South Node. Only nine days ago the South Node shifted into Aquarius and will stay there for 18 months. The influence of the South Node heightens the karma, fate, destiny and soul energies of this particular moon.
If you’ve been on track with ‘for the good of all’ and empowering yourself without harm to others, your vibration will be in sync with life’s good flow. As Aquarius is the zodiac sign of the future, this might be like receiving a gift certificate that can be redeemed later. But Aquarius is also the zodiac sign of present contributions to the evolution of humankind. If life needs your unique contribution to shine right now, you might find yourself centre stage. But there’s no point ever waiting on life to land something in your lap, and it would be particularly problematic to wait and hope whenever the South Node is involved as it can act like a snake in the game Snakes and Ladders. Yet if you get moving and motivated, and get yourself the right help during this time, the South Node acts like a strong arm hoisting you up one of life’s ladders.
