The water that Aquarius carries is the divine wisdom and light to be shared freely with every person no matter their status. Aquarius is a deeply humanitarian sign, seeing God in the heart of every person and yearning for a true universal community of humankind.
Aquarius is the 11th zodiacal sign, just before Pisces which is the very last sign where everything that has been created dissolves back into the Absolute. Therefore in Aquarius almost all the processes of life represented throughout the zodiac have been fulfilled, and this sign feels the urgency for a revolution to create a better world where equality and liberty reign.
Aquarius is ruled by Saturn and Uranus. Saturn is the planet related with death and time, great forces that everyone must confront and deal with. Uranus is closely related with the Greek Titan Prometheus, a champion of mankind who stole fire from the gods to give to humans. The revolutionary nature of Uranus is seen in its horizontal orbit, completely different from any other planet in the solar system.
The energy of Uranus is of abrupt change that can tear down old and entrenched modes of thinking and structures to make room for something completely new. Uranus rules the sexual glands and hormones, the source of powerful impulses within our bodies that can regenerate our system when used wisely.
Guided by these two planets, Aquarius works toward revolutionary ideas and movements to eliminate outdated systems that cause inequality and oppression, and emphasizes self-reliance and suspicion of authority.
Samael Aun Weor stated that as of February 4th, 1962 we have entered into the Age of Aquarius.
