Aquarius - Prague

Excerpt from Aquarius Dawns: The Shamanic Artist and the Rise of the Wounded Healer:

“But the new paradigm demands personal response-ability for everything I experience. This is the essence of Leo, the polarity of the emerging Aquarian age. Everything that happens to me I ask for. I am creating this situation, this experience, this relationship for my highest purpose.

The evolutionary imperative is what drives Aquarius. Thus, Aquarian ideals are founded on constantly revolutionizing the present moment. In this, there is little time for personal wounds, shadow-triggers, and blame to run the show. For Aquarius, it is always a question of the appropriate use of creative energy.” (Read more about the emerging Aquarian Age and the theme of the eclipses this year.)

Leo-Aquarian Artistry: One For All

The old way—the shadow-corpse of the Pisces Age—which we must transfigure, has a lot of reinforcement. The old paradigm tended to smile with approval when you talked in guilt, victim, and martyr consciousness—themes of the Pisces-Virgo axis.

But the new paradigm demands personal response-ability for everything I experience. This is the essence of Leo, the polarity of the emerging Aquarian age. Everything that happens to me I ask for. I am creating this situation, this experience, this relationship for my highest purpose.

The evolutionary imperative is what drives Aquarius. Thus, Aquarian ideals are founded on constantly revolutionizing the present moment.

This Aquarian approach is experimental and adaptive, it does not let the king-ego, the shadow of the cowardly lion Leo, manipulate a situation.

Just like the Pisces-Virgo polarity, in order to inaugurate the Aquarian age, we must beware the shadow polarity of Leo—egocentrism, the conceited artist, the irresponsible child, the self righteous drama queen, the arrogant dictator. We must instead sip the Leo medicine—unconditional creativity, the generous and open heart, the spontaneous and playful child, the artist who serves humanity.

To do this, I must get out of the way enough to allow myself to be the most appropriate channel for service at this time. My duty as creator, is to respond to the needs of the community in an act of selfless service.

The archetype of the Wounded Healer is the integrated Pisces-Virgo, while the archetype of the Shamanic Artist is the integrated Aquarius-Leo. Because our lives comprise the peak centuries of transition between the Piscean and Aquarian Ages, we now merge the Wounded Healer and Shamanic Artist into a single archetype. This is the essence of the Shamanic Hero pulsing within each one of us, the light of a N
