8 Aquarius 21’

You will find your peace if you follow your breath to silence your thoughts and allow the instruction of your Inner Teacher.

The Inner Teacher is a mediator. You might say that you hear the Inner Teacher with the “middle” ear which keeps your balance. We all need to be able to hear our Inner Teacher in order to keep our emotional and psychological footing.  If you hear and I hear, we will get the same message: Do not fear.

We cannot hear for each other. But if we each hear we connect and cooperate, whether we know of one another or not.

There is a story about a Great Teacher who said, “The kingdom of God shall not come with observation. Neither shall they say, Lo here! Or Lo, there! For behold, the Kingdom of God is within you.”

What if this is the dawning of the age where we come to know this truth, not as a philosophy—nodded at but not real—but as a living, breathing, working truth that keeps us safe and resolved, no matter what?

I love the way Rumi puts it: “Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and right doing there is a field. I’ll meet you there.”

This is key to the kingdom I think. It is the wrongdoing and right doing, the black and white, red and blue, “I will never change my mind, I will never see you or your way,” that we have to master. If I am living in too much polarity, then it means that my own house, my own mind, my own being, is divided against itself.

So instead of needing conditions outside of me to be different, I can find ways of being less polarized against my own well-being which is evidenced when I am threatened by what I see outside of me.

What if we understood and embraced something of the “dawning of the age of Aquarius” at this New Moon at 8 degrees of Aquarius?

What if the greatness of our nation lays in the kingdom field beyond polarity?

In the words of Valerie Kaur, “What if this darkness is not the darkness of the tomb, but the darkness of the womb? What if this is our nation’s great transition?” What if we shall labor but a short time now and gradually find ourselves in the air of residing in the upper residences of our mind?

As above, so below is the meaning of Aquarius’ glyph. The two wavy lines look like water, but air flows and has currents like water does. The symbol stands for alchemical dissolution, otherwise known as solution or problem solved.

Resolution of opposition flows in the knowledge that the unknown flows with the known and will mirror my consciousness. Even in times of greatest darkness and stress, I can find the way if I can be at peace with the unknown. As I reside above, peace comes over my affairs.

Practicum:

Saturn in Sagittarius squares Venus in Pisces. Saturn is dominion or slavery, Venus, is wisdom or folly. Saturn square Venus can be limited or enslaved imagination.If you focus too much on what “is” it will only bring you down. You may be aware of negativity abounding, but apply Saturn as centeredness, discipline, focus, dignity and command to reduce the folly and multiply the wisdom. Look in the mirror and declare yourself great and your role great; your will great and your love great.  And we shall gather at the Kingdom Field. Our inner peace will let us know we are there. We may ebb and flow, but we will be increasingly there. The best is inevitable.
