Tonight we meditate on the qualities of Aquarius: creativity, progressiveness, stimulation, independence, non-judgmental, loyal, dignified; and on the negative side, unemotional, intractability, perverseness, coldness. This day is also associated St. Matthew, who renounced all worldly possessions. While meditating, feel free to visualize the symbol of Aquarius displayed below, focus on an icon or holy card of St. Matthew, or simply light a blue candle.
Read the following scripture, and then focus on the negative qualities of Aquarius that you recognize in yourself.
“Ye are my friends.” – John 15:4
Knowing that you can move past these negative aspects of yourself, read the following scripture, and meditate upon the positive qualities of Aquarius you possess. The negative qualities of Aquarius can sometimes make it difficult to make and keep close friends, and often puts other people off – but its qualities of loyalty and a non-judgmental nature produce a humanitarian and progressive nature that balances itself out. It is this progressiveness, along with a love for independence that can free us of all attachment to the world, just as St. Matthew, so that we may receive the Gnosis of Life, Liberty, Love, and Light.
