It's a wonder that psychics, sensitives, intuitives, seers, prophets and the Holy Wise don't take themselves, and the position they have, a great deal more seriously. With the churches and clergy in catastrophic collapse, having failed us all spectacularly, the Inspired are all that believers and wanderers alike have in this world for spiritual guidance.
And this world is itself in a state of catastrophic renewal!! We need not move so hesitantly through the birth of the new world age; Aquarius is visibly rising, as promised, and with its so the hope of all Christians! Though the churches are empty and secular humanism morphs into outright atheism, yet we of the spirit still triumphantly rise!
The anchors and symbols of Aquarian Christianity are everywhere, guiding us without and within as we approach greater understanding of our mission on earth and in heaven.
We first meet the sign of Aquarius in the Gospel of Mark , where in 14:13 we read, So He sent two of His disciples and told them, "Go into the city, and a man carrying a water jug will meet you. Follow him 14 and wherever he enters, say to the owner of the house, 'The Teacher says, "Where is My guest room in which I may eat the Passover with My disciples?"'…
Luke 22:10 He said to them, "Behold, when you have entered the city, a man carrying a jar of water will meet you. Follow him into the house that he enters".
This man with a jug makes no other appearance in the Gospel, and was unknown to the apostles; he just was there on the way to Jerusalem exactly where and when Our Savior needed him. To unbelievers, the mans appearance is totally random and suspicious, baffling them; but to the wise who follow The Way, he is easily identifiable him as the first symbol and sign of Aquarius the water bearer in Our Saviors journey.
He appears here right in time, right in line for us to follow too, as Jesus directed us 'to follow him into the house that he enters.'
Aquarius is also identified with the handsome Greek youth Ganymede, of whom the king of the gods and the heavens become enraptured. Zeus abducted the young man by assuming the form of an eagle and spiriting him away to the heavens, where he became the cup bearer of the archetypes, gods, and heroes of the zodiac. This can be seen as a gay interlude for Zeus, which may account for the sudden rise in interest and concern for gay rights in the Aquarian Age.
Plato however points out that according to Socrates, Ganymede is actually ganu-"taking pleasure," and med-, "mind." Ganymede, he points out, was not the catamite of Zeus, but that the relationship was platonic though deep and intense. The king of the gods loved the young man for his psyche, mind or soul, as evinced by the etymology of his name.
Ganymede later was recognized by the Egyptians as the catalyst of the fountains of the Nile, the life-giving and fertilizing river which meant life or death. Thus, the cup bearer of heaven had close connections to rain, rivers and bodies of water, as well as the water supply on earth.
Is Ganymede, gay or not, the good friend, trusted and loyal, of the gods of ancient days, in the Christian Gospel? Certainly he is.
Mark 14: 35 And He went on a little and fell on the ground, and was praying that if it was possible that this hour might pass from Him. And He said, ''Abba, my father, you can do everything. Make this cup pass from Me." A bit later, in 14: 51, 'A young man was following Him, wearing nothing but a linen sheet over his naked body; and they seized him. 52. But he pulled free of the linen sheet and escaped naked.'
Don't be so quick to dismiss this as a gratuitous lurid detail; this little item has been puzzling orthodox Christianity for two thousand years.
Why did Jesus use that particular phrase, 'the cup'? And how could anyone know what Jesus said in prayer to His father? Everyone was asleep!! They had deserted Him in His agony. There was, further, no time to speak privately to His followers as He was immediately arrested and had no further recourse to them until after He had risen.
It's obvious, when you consider that Jesus is the king of heaven, and the cup is mentioned because the cup bearer is not far behind. Thus we can consider Ganymede as the angel of the cup.
Directly across from Aquarius is the constellation Leo, the sign of the King; within this constellation lies a smaller cluster of stars called Crater, Latin for 'the Cup.'
The stars of the constellation Aquarius are named Sadalmelik, the lucky stars of the king, Sadalsuud, the luckiest of lucky stars, and Sadachbia, lucky star of the home.
Perhaps the most encouraging symbol of the new age appears with the woman at the well, the Samaritan. Found in John 4, verses 1 through 41, this story centers around another figure with a jar, a water bearer, a source of water or deep wisdom, and a confrontation with Jesus that confirms universal salvation. 39 Many of the Samaritans from that town believed in him because of the woman’s testimony, "He told me everything I ever did." 40 So when the Samaritans came to him, they urged him to stay with them, and he stayed two days. 41 And because of his words many more became believers.
He told me everything I ever did... and because of His words many more became believers.'
We are always free to connect with the Gospel in the Stars in the manner we choose. God gave us free will, and He wasn't kidding or stinting on it. We wanted to be responsible for our own salvation, and so He made it entirely up to us, as gods, to accept it and live it, or to reject it and try to do it on our own.
We can immerse ourselves in waning Pisces by becoming extreme in our views, our politics, our diet, our medicine, and repudiate law enforcement representing the Virgo axis (Virgo, sign of service and the Services, lies directly opposite Pisces in the zodiac).
We can act like airy Aquarians, embracing fraternity that ends up in fratricide, and aborting our children en mass in rejection of Leo, the family centered and child loving sign opposite it. Leo, remember, is the sign of the King, also.
