Myths express archetypal motifs that play out in human experience.
Myths exert tremendous influence (albeit unconsciously) in the choices we make each and every day.
Why not do yourself a favour and look in more depth at the myths closely related to your astrological sun sign? After all, your astrological (or natal) Sun is where you shine, where you play centre-stage.
Here’s a pertinent myth for those of you who were born under the sign of Aquarius.
What can you learn from it about you and what makes you tick?
Prometheus is an altruistic demigod with the gift of foresight. Seeing primitive man unable to keep warm or cook his meat, Prometheus went to Mount Olympus and stole holy fire from the gods to give to mankind.
Are you too, Aquarius, caught between your vision of how things should be versus what they are today?
Zeus, the king of the gods, was displeased with the initiative of Prometheus and punished him for his humanitarian acts. Not only did he make the visionary an outcast, but he also chained him to a rock where an eagle tears out his liver, anew, each and every day.
Are you, Aquarius, rarely thanked when you act as the catalyst for progressive change? Do you feel alien in a world into which you’d secretly love to fit? Can you accept that the life of a visionary will never be easy? How might you avoid taking too narrow and rigid a position in your zeal for reform?
