The Legend of Aquarius
In Greek Mythology, Ganymede was a young shepherd and the son of Tros, a ruler of Troy, and Callirrhoe, the daughter of Scamander, the river God. Ganymede was said to be the most handsome of all of the mortals.
Bored with the perfection of the Universe, Zeus took the form of an eagle, called Aquila, and flew over land and sea. As Zeus flew over the land, he heard laughter, and came upon Ganymede, drunk on wine, and watching over his flock of sheep.
So mesmerized by his beauty and youthful spirit, he swooped down and grabbed him, kidnapping Ganymede from his field. Zeus felt that Ganymede was too lovely to be in the company of mere mortals, and wanted him for himself.
In return, Zeus sent two horses in repayment to Ganymede’s father that were said to be so swift that they could run over water. Zeus appointed Ganymede as the official wine or cupbearer to the Olympian Gods. Zeus later put Ganymede in the sky as the constellation Aquarius.
During the New Moon in Aquarius, we are called to rise up towards our greater purpose and to reflect on our humanitarian and philanthropic potentials.
Finding Passion & Purpose
The roadmap to finding your passion and purpose first begins with engaging and getting in touch with your inner scientist, and then identifying that which you are curious about.
Make a Venn diagram of all of your curiosities, and find where there’s an overlap between what you’re interested in. This intersection is literally your passion sweet spot. It’s the place you want to start to begin uncovering what you’re passionate about.
The next step is to make a list of at least 3 to 5 problems or challenges inspired by your passions, and once you do that, you will discover your purpose — to solve those problems and challenges.
When you discover a purpose, then that is the beginning of your legacy. From there, it’s up to you to take inspired action to solve those problems and challenges.
In what ways are you…
- How do we ascend from being mere mortals to the Kingdom of the Gods?
- What is our legacy?
- Contributing to the collective?
- Improving current systems and creating new connections?
- Pursuing your radical visions?
