AQUARIUS (January 20-February 19)
To be meaningful, this thing we call spirituality must have a use. It cannot merely be an abstract, academic, or esoteric thing, as it so often is. Its correct use would include a sane approach to handling conflict, and the use of wisdom rather than force. This is a tall order, I know, on a planet where most people concern themselves either with survival or greed. For you, the spiritual life is designed to manifest primarily in your relationships. While the point might be made that this applies to everyone (it does), the emphasis for Aquarius is to make sure you don’t forget, or convince yourself you’ll find enlightenment way in the back of a dusty book on Freemasonry.
The relational nature of your spiritual path comes into focus this month, as planets collect in Libra. This is an invitation to see, feel and experience the purpose of your relationships, which is non-negotiable. Any time there’s some sort of haggling going on, or competition, or scorekeeping, you can be sure that you’ve drifted from your purpose. Part of whatever “spiritual” might imply involves being supportive of the people you care about and their total environment. Spiritual also implies a measure of balance, though that must be assessed over the long-run rather than the immediate sense. Your role is to be helpful. Eliminate the question “What’s in it for me?” That is from another cosmos.
