Spiritual Interpretation of Aquarius Rising
You pursue your spiritual path along three distinct lines:
- Self-serving personal aggrandizement that shifts into the service of humanity.
- Selfish attention to material superficiality that transforms into spiritual activity to serve a divine purpose.
- Self-conscious activity on the interpersonal level that changes to broader humanitarian awareness.
Each of these three tendencies is expressed in alternating activities, and it may be difficult to sort out what your lower and higher motivations are at any given time.
You have the capacity to think through situations. You can work with your physical desire motivations, your emotional attachments, and your mental processes to discern your typical behaviors and their motivations. As you do this, you encounter situations where your spiritual motivation is paired with a self-serving method. When this happens, you have the opportunity to change your tactics.
It is the movement that is important, not the precise content or direction. Your rising sign governs the circulation of blood through your body. Allow the metaphor of circulation to pervade your interactions with others and your communion with yourself. Permit the possibility in all your activities that your perceived goal is not the end of a process, but simply a milestone along the larger path.
