|HIGH MINDED THINKER – URANUS “THE AWAKENER!” |
The two ripples of water can sometimes be perceived as bolts of lightning, waves of aether, or electrically-charged water. Although Aquarius is an Air sign, he/she pours waters of creation, healing and purification on the collective existence of humanity.
Uranus “the awakener” Aquarius was “co-ruled” by Saturn along with Capricorn. However, after Uranus’ discovery in 1781, modern astrology currently associates Aquarius with Uranus. The planet Uranus is a gas giant named after the sky god that Gaia created and procreated with. Uranus is considered the father of the Cyclops and the Titans. The planet orbits the sun on its side and takes up to 84 earth years to make one trip.
There are various myths involving Aquarius. In the Bible he is equated with Noah from the Noah’s Ark flood story. However, before the age of Christianity, Aquarius was associated with Deucalion in Greece and Utnapishtim from a similar flood story called the, “Epic of Gilgamesh.” There are many similarities between Gilgamesh, Hercules and Orion “the hunter.” The Sumerian account includes many similar details about the great flood. While the myth from Greece Included Deucalion’s salvation from the flood, but this account did not include saving two of each animal. Deucalion and his wife Pyrrha were forced to repopulate the world by throwing rocks over their shoulders. All of the men formed behind Deucalion and all of the women formed behind Pyrrha. In one account, Pandora from the Pandora’s box myth emerged behind Pyrrha.
