Intuitive Recognition Skills for Aquarius    

aquariusAS YOU READ through this list of Aquarian characteristics, please remember that they do not so much point to a separate somebody, as to the One Being attempting to dream lucid in a particular kind of ego. In other words, don’t fall for the trait bait! What you are witnessing is the outer circumference of a divinely-ordained style of awakening; a storyless Presence in the throes of waking up to itself.

As you contemplate these Aquarian traits and predispositions, allow yourself to feel into the potential excesses and insecurities that come along with this archetype. Let your heart break for Aquarian’s positively intended, but unskillfully expressed, heart. There. Now you not only have more compassion and resource in the presence of such souls, you can more shrewdly navigate those patches of time (transits) that are colored by the ruler of Aquarius: Uranus.    
What does meditating on personality traits have to do with navigating periods of time? Plenty. Healing our relationship with the archetypal flavors of personality, we make peace with the archetypal flavors of time. Suppose you’re moving through a season of life that is heavily influenced by Uranus. Having practiced penetrating to the positive intention of electrically alive, freedom-loving and unpredictable Aquarian people, you are more likely to meet periods of sudden, paradigm-rocking change and chaotic enlivenment with more relaxation, trust and flow.
