Welcome to Aquarius


Blue Lotus by Arunan Skanthan

“(In the Western mysteries,) Aquarius is the sign of the greater precession cycle we are astronomically entering. The sign of the Water-Bearer, the server of humanity is profound, ruled at one level by Uranus, Hierophant of the Mysteries, and at a higher level by Jupiter, planet of Love-Wisdom.”

 — Phillip Lindsay

“(In Vedic astrology,) Aquarius represents the pitcher from which water flows out. Pitcher is the Upadhi–vehicle of consciousness, and the water is Mool Prakati, the Primordial Substance, of which everything is made. It is a state of consciousness where the activity of consciousness is not limited by the form of the Upadhi, or the organism of life through which consciousness is usually expressed. In a way, this sign reflects the ultimate liberation, which is possible, when cycle of evolution is completed.”

 — Acharya Bharat

“In Buddhism, the bud of the lotus symbolizes potential. The lotus flower represents an awakening, spiritual growth, and enlightenment. Just as the lotus flower emerges from the water clean, the lotus also represents purity of body, speech, and mind. The lotus could be thought of as an awakened mind, which grows naturally toward the warmth and light of truth, love and compassion.”

 — Nina Shadi

“Spa (n.) etymology: “medicinal or mineral spring,” 1620s, from name of health resort in eastern Belgium, known since 14c., that featured mineral springs believed to have curative properties. The place name is from Walloon espa “spring, fountain.”

 — Online Etymology Dictionary
