Astrological Knowledge is an Opportunity

A couple days ago, I made a remark to a client about how my perception of Astrology centered more around it being a liberator and identifier of human potential as opposed to a confining and static proposition.

In exploring Astrological symbolism, it’s important to remember that we are the sole proprietor of choice in our lives. Hopefully, the Astrology that’s being presented to the public at large will emphasize the vast array of alternatives we have rather than promote the message that we’re hopelessly and inextricably bound to a fixed fate which awaits us.

Within this combination, social and creative intelligence form an iron clad coalition. Merging oneself with the intangible realms of life via artistic channels of self-reflection is the gateway to balancing one’s identity. This sun-moon blend suggests that to feel “alive” and maintain vitality, one’s concerns should be directed toward the development of intuition and interpersonal savvy.

You shine in the realm of being interested in others and it reflects through a personality which holds peace and idealism in high esteem.

With aesthetic sensitivity and creative imagination as your handmaidens, people feel understood intellectually as well as emotionally in your presence. It’s as if you’ve slid right under your skin and started gently peeling away at the inner layers.

As a result of your tremendous fluency in the languages of the head and heart, your challenge will be to maintain who you are without becoming submerged in the “skin” of others.

Objectivity and empathy can serve you consistently as strengths if you can listen with an open heart and seek to understand, resisting the inclination to provide unsolicited evaluations.

Seek to sincerely connect in order to open the pathway to deeper. more meaningful dialogue with others.

In the sphere of intimate relationships, there’s an emphasis on granting wishes and fulfilling fantasies.

To have your love feeling “full” in mind, heart and spirit is the goal, along with idealistic hopes that an unspoken reciprocation will be soon to follow.

You will no doubt be faced with the dilemma of how to keep your union “polished” when the luster inevitably fades; of stoking the fire when the heat dissipates. Have confidence in your enormous charm, mammoth imagination and your capacity to meet one halfway and they will not fail you.

 

Aquarius Rising : “I Originate”

 

When discussing the rising sign, a.k.a. the ascendant, we’re automatically confronted with questions such as: “In what manner do I approach the world?”  “How do other people perceive me? Better yet, “What is the basic filter I have in place to process my life experience?”

An Aquarian Ascendant suggests an approach to life which stresses innovation in service of personal liberation. Living “electrically” tends to be of significant importance. Ultimately, this produces questions about what it truly means to be free in this world, and how we can become more of ourselves every moment.

The ability to detach, or take an exceptionally objective view of life assists the water bearer because there doesn’t appear to be a great investment in the opinions of others.

This type of orientation lends itself well to innovation and original thinking; the motivation to experiment, with higher hopes for discovery and fewer hangups in regard to social convention. In fact, if they had to make a clear cut choice, they would rather you be shocked than lulled to sleep by a milktoast meal of humdrum commonality.

Wearing the “mask” of the progressive, eccentricity is an article of clothing which is an essential part of the overall identity expression. Whether it’s reflected in your interests, vocation, appearance, or the books that you read, marching to the beat of your own drummer is “par for the course”.

People may see you as a futurist, change agent and visionary who’s concerned with social advancement even if it has to come in the package of provoking others thought processes in a manner which could be characterized as bizarre or erratic.

One of the largest lessons which Aquarius rising is here to teach us is : the UNTRIED can be just as TRUE. Sometimes, to set ourselves on an entirely new course is exactly what we need to shake the cobwebs off of a philosophy or outlook which has otherwise grown stale and moldy.

To those who insist on doing things the way they’ve always been done, Aquarian energy can be seen as disruptive or destabilizing. A proverbial “pulling the rug out from under” all that we think we’re sure about in regard to what constitutes “secure” structures within our lives.

You embody the unique arrangement and spirit of the rebel, weirdo, beatnik, revolutionary, eccentric, free spirit, reformer, anarchist, social activist, futurist and the mad scientist.
