"The air and water of Aquarius symbolize spirit in union with emotions. You rise above the situation in Aquarius - you have some terrible row or some problem at your work, or you've been having rows with people - the Aquarian method is to rise above it and look down and it becomes in proportion. You don't ignore it.
Have you any problem, don't hide it away and then it pops out at you later when you sleep in a nightmare. Face it now and rise above it - look down on it from this starry standpoint. All problems vanish when you are your true Self, for we are only players in this shadow world. Now, at the birth of a new aeon, we look ahead, now we've solved our problems, to what we plan for our own future, not only now but in future lives, whether on earth or in the stars. . .
There is no jealousy, envy or hatred in the new aeon, for we share others' triumphs and glories. There's no competition. As we feel this, we feel the waters of Aquarius and the stars pour through us. . .Happiness is not yesterday or tomorrow, it is NOW and that now extends like ripples right through the whole of one's being. Sorrow passes, joy lasts forever.
You are receiving inspiration from the stars. . . and you can see the star Cassiopeia, the great "W" in the sky, the northern constellation and you know that beneath, below the south pole, is Aquarius. And the stars are always there. There is no loss. We are shrouded with a starry mantle. When the sun goes down the stars are seen: so in Winter, when our earthly vitality perhaps decreases, our inner spirit shines forth. . ."
