Rays Of Wisdom - Our World In Transition - The Aquarian Spiritual Transformation

Aquarius is the sign of transmutation and transfiguration as well as that of rebellion, revolution and renaissance. Its symbol is the water bearer who holds a pot in his arms from which he seems to be pouring water. Because of this it is hardly surprising that to this day there is quite a bit of confusion about the nature of this sign. In spite of its symbol and contrary to popular beliefs, Aquarius is by no means one of the Water signs. It is an Air sign and the water that flows from the man’s vessel is not of the liquid kind. It is an allegory for the cleansing and purifying effect of new spiritual knowledge and wisdom that is constantly being poured from the highest levels of life into humankind’s earthly consciousness. That’s how the Aquarian energies, from the moment of our race’s first appearance on the Earth have constantly been moving us and our world forwards and upwards on the evolutionary spiral of life.

Aquarius is also the sign of siblinghood, kinship and friendship among all peoples and all nations, and ultimately with all life. In this sign the highest human hopes, dreams and aspirations will eventually find their fulfilment, on a personal as well as the collective level. I hope I shall be forgiven for using the word siblinghood instead of brotherhood. For my liking the latter smacks too much of times gone by, of the patriarchy and the suppression of the feminine. The true Aquarian spirit provides our world with equal rights and opportunities for all. As far as I can tell, by now there is plenty of evidence that these ideas are slowly but surely gaining the upper hand in our world.

Many opportunities for conducting our lives in accordance with the Aquarian principles are always on offer for every human being and especially for those who are spending their present lifetime in this sign. Wise ones, who are willing to work hard on themselves to fulfil the special requirements of this sign, have excellent potential for growing into significant pioneers and wayfinders of the Aquarian age. The deeper we are proceeding into it, the more powerful the energies of this sign are going to influence us and our world, moving us ever closer to the fulfilment of humankind’s most ancient dreams of a new golden age when love and peace, goodwill and harmony, honesty and truth will be ruling our world.

It’s not that someone wield some kind of a magic wand and make this golden age happen. It will be brought about by none other than you and me as well as people like us as a result of humankind’s rebirth into the conscious awareness of its true nature and changed thinking and behaviour patterns. Fyodor Dostoyevsky, 1821 – 1881, wrote in one of his short stories: ‘The vision of the Golden Age may be a dream, but it is one that makes life worthwhile even if it can never be realised; indeed, it makes life worthwhile just because it can never be realised.’ I do not share this opinion because I do believe with all my heart and soul that the appearance of a new Golden Age is very much a reality and already in the process of happening. Obviously, we have by now drawn a good deal closer to this age than Dostoyevsky was in his time.

The rebellious and revolutionary planet Uranus rules Aquarius and the eleventh house, the natural domain of this sign, and under the influence of its energies things happen suddenly. One’s whole outlook on life sometimes changes over night and that can be surprisingly disruptive. On a personal note, it is possible to emerge with a new career, a new home, and a new set of personal relationships – one or the other, and sometimes all of them together. There will be many opportunities for revolutionising one’s life and – if need be – for turning it completely round. If in the past we refused to make the changes that had become necessary in our life, we may find that circumstances beyond our control arise and the Universe takes the matter in hand and transforms our way of living for us.

And that’s why some people under the influence of the Aquarian energies have to endure a complete breaking down of their status quo. However, this only happens if we cling onto something that has outlived its usefulness in our life for far too long and we are reluctant to make the necessary changes. There is no problem for wise ones who let go in good time because they realise that it’s never a good thing to stick to material possessions, places and relationships that are outworn and should be discarded. So they let them go.

Our reactions to this kind of thing depends as much on our circumstances as our spiritual awareness and our inner attitude towards the purpose and meaning of our earthly existence, other people and life in general. Nothing of this kind may ever happen to you. I am merely telling you about the natural causes behind every breakdown just in case, as forewarned means being forearmed. If there are any sudden disruptions in your life, make every effort to go with the flow. As soon as the dust has settled so to speak, you will find the Aquarian energies have landed you in a more advanced position that suits the requirements of the present state of your spiritual developmental much better than the old circumstances could ever hope to do. Under the influence of these energies anything can happen and it frequently does. So please don’t be afraid, just let go and be ready what the Universe has in store for you.
