The Sun moves into Aquarius today, January 19th at 1:23 pm PST. We enter the sign of group work and loving, intelligent service. The Sun enters this sign just one day before the U.S. Inauguration. Aquarius is a sign of the people and rules the soul of the United States. This is a sign that stands for freedom, reinvention and waking up.
It is worth noting that later this afternoon, Friday and Saturday, the moon will be in Scorpio— the sign of the warrior. When Scorpio and Aquarius work well together, they fight for freedom. They are tenacious about equality. Scorpio and Aquarius in cooperation create warriors in the name of the common good. When these two energies are not cooperating, there can be reactive rebellion or great fear manifesting in an erratic or uncontrolled way.
I want to be simple about this. Inauguration Day and the day of protests and marches following could be supremely inspiring Aquarian days. All over the country, people are gathering to stand for decency, goodness and right relationship. People are gathering to sound their GROUP support for the ideals upon which this country was founded. As we gather, we gather as ONE. Aquarius has little to do with each individual ego or the spot lit leader. It celebrates what happens when we unite in the name of something greater than our individual selves. Aquarius celebrates the elegant wisdom that we are always MORE together. In these next few days, we can inaugurate a new chapter of activism and group service.
One of the gifts of Aquarius is healthy detachment. Don’t be fooled by this word. Aquarius allows us to detach from unproductive emotional reactivity. It allows us to get a better view of the struggle. Einstein said “You can’t solve a problem with the energy that created it.” Aquarius knows the deepest truth of this message and lives it. As Michelle Obama would say - It goes high when others go low.
Stand for the light in the next few days. Stand for the light for the rest of your life. Sing. Choose words that uplift and inspire others to reflect, to dig deeper. Listen like crazy. Listen some more. Pause before attack. Pause and then speak with a fierce love. Sing. Feel the power of the enlightened group liberating the good in all who join. Feel how you are a small wave in a great wave of positive change.
The mantrum for Aquarius is “Water of life am I poured forth for thirsty men.” Be that water of life. Choose to be a light. Choose to light the way towards Humanity’s greater awakening.
Big love, Heidi Rose
Poem for Aquarius
WE HAVE NOT COME TO TAKE PRISONERS
We have not come here to take prisoners, But to surrender ever more deeply To freedom and joy.
We have not come into this exquisite world To hold ourselves hostage from love.
Run my dear, From anything That may not strengthen Your precious budding wings.
Run like hell my dear, From anyone likely To put a sharp knife Into the sacred, tender vision Of your beautiful heart.
We have a duty to befriend Those aspects of obedience That stand outside of our house And shout to our reason "O please, O please, Come out and play."
For we have not come here to take prisoners Or to confine our wondrous spirits,
But to experience ever and ever more deeply Our divine courage, freedom and Light!
