The United States and the Aquarian Mystique
By Ken Hopkins, The Sports Astrologer
Aquarians(those born January 20-February 19 most years) have an uncanny
knack of showing up in somebody’s hall of fame for being the first, the
greatest, or doing it longer or the most times in their respective profession
or passion. Every Aquarian mentioned in the article to follow was either born
or achieved much of their recognition and success in the good ’ole USA which
happens to have an Aquarian moon at the time of the Declaration of
Independence. Aquarian co-rulers Saturn and Uranus were also strong players at
the July 4, 1776 planetary dance. If
you’d like to read more Aquarius, I’ll have put the above
article up on my site.
In astrology, the sign Aquarius is ruled by the planets Saturn and
Uranus. Aquarius is often called “The Water Bearer” even though it is a
member of the air element in astrology. Some astrology fans have said it’s
because the next sign is Pisces, a water sign, therefore Aquarius figuratively
“brings or bears” water on an annual basis. I have a different take on the
water bearer. If you were to go back to Genesis in the first chapter there is
a lot of attention to waters. We’re
probably not speaking of the H2O kind of waters. Symbolically if you equate
waters to a spiritual substance or vibration the term water bearer begins to
take on a new significance.
Aquarius in traditional astrology is characterized as inventive,
intellectual, independent, freedom-loving, altruistic, and sometimes
rebellious, especially when it comes to routine and the status-quo.
Each sign is blessed with a key phrase that with meditation, can give
great insights to the sign and it’s meaning and its power.
key phrase for Aquarius is “I Know”. Aquarius
is a vibration in it’s purest form, Christ Consciousness, Knowing at it’s
best. All-Knowing equates to truth and when we overlay the Course in Miracles
over Aquarius and the other 11 signs we have the knowing that Love is all
there is. We thank those born during the vibration of Aquarius for their
contribution to truth and may Aquarians and all others experience the
spiritual waters of our Creator as we all remove the layers of illusion that
separate us from our loving Source. As we move into a new age...may it become
a timeless “knowing” and if we remove the letter k from the word know, we
have “now” which is all we have. Welcome to the new age… the now
of Knowing. Kind of
reminds me of the Chicago song “Does Anyone Really Know What Time it is?”

The following is an interpretation based on declinations.
Declinations is a study of the planets and major points in the zodiac, such as
the rising sign or ascendant(ASC) and the midheaven(MC). The declinations are
figured by the number of degrees and minutes north or south of the celestial
equator. When two or more planets or points appear within a degree north of the
CE or they are south CE, they are in parallel. For research and timing I look
for parallels within 30 minutes or one half degree. If a planet or point is in
the same degree but in the north and in the south, that is a contra-parallel.
Astrologers in the past have equated the parallels with conjunctions which are
found in the longitudinal or round charts, and the contra-parallels as
oppositions. I see the parallels and contra parallels (CP) a little differently.
I am in the process of defining what I see as the characteristics and will share
as time goes on. One thing I am seeing more and more in the case of CPs is that
they frequently show up by transit to the natal chart in players who win MVP
awards in the baseball All Star game and the Super Bowl. I'm beginning to see
the CPs as the completion of an electromagnetic circuit of sorts. Look at the
northern planet as the positive pole and the southern planet or point as the
negative pole. When the two points are connected by two, there is a completed
electrical circuit. It's like magic when you watch these players in their game.
Miguel Tejada, shortstop of the Baltimore Orioles won the MVP this past year in
the MLB All Star game. He was outstanding in the field as well as at the plate.
In future Super Bowls and All Star games I will attempt to predict the MVP.
Michelle Wie will have her first full year wearing the
professional label. Her first venture into pro-dom was a little
embarrassing as she was disqualified for a ball drop from an unplayable lie in
bush country. 2006 will find the teenage phenom picking and choosing her
tournaments around schooling, but the summer months of June and July could bring
her first taste of victory, if she is still looking for that first win. Our
subject astrologically has the progressed Moon forming a parallel with the Sun
and then doing the same with the Moon's North Node. Tiger had this same aspect
in 2000.and he won three of four majors. Although winning that many majors may
not be in a 16 year-old's reach, let's keep in mind that this young lady plays
well beyond her years. The transiting planet Jupiter forms a magical parallel
with the lunar North Node in June and July which makes this whole year laden
with potential for winning and winning often within a nine or 10 week span. What
Michelle has to do is prepare herself off of the golf course. She needs to
remain centered and continue to embrace her family's values and remember golf is
a game that requires much mental discipline to go with her already proven
physical capabilities. For Michelle Wie in 2006, she might as well shoot for the
stars because the sky's the limit.
// = parallel
# = contra-parallel
How to read the charts: The
transiting planets and nodes are located on the left and once in the graph body
while the natal placements can be viewed on the right. The natal declination
points are represented by dotted lines, the transits by solid lines. Out-of-bounds means when the Moon
or other planet exceeds 23 degrees 26 minutes in the north or south. Michelle
Wie had Venus go out-of-bounds in the south and it remain so until she reaches
the age of 54. When a planet is OB, it's almost like a wild card situation. If a
person is experiencing the event, they can go above and beyond the normal. There
can be excesses and much abundance. If the person understands the vibrations,
they can better harness the energies for the good of all.
