... which led me to ponder aquarius.
First - taking the Saturn rulership you have the structure of consciousness and the image is a vase/urn and water....fairly graphic there, I think. However, frequently the urn/vase is being emptied! I find that very interesting. Is it being emptied to be renewed? Is Uranus shown here by a dichotomy - that it's separation will induce collective 'individuation' or mass psychosis?
Keep in mind evolutionary stages of Soul growth. The individuated stage is inherently a Uranian phase, the nature of the archetype, to throw off the Consensus (Saturn) need to conform (Saturn) - to de-condition in other words. Relative to consensus, Uranus in Pisces IS mass psychosis. Yet also the seeds of individuation to those who seek it. Look around, both are happening.
That our collective unconscious will be progressively either something you are unindated by our you see progressively in 'projection'? (that seems what happens usually in human psychology though) Or is it to empty in the Uranian fashion? To decondition? Emptying being a lack of identification, therefore something new?
again, both. Depending on choice, and evolutionary stage. (Evolutionary stage is simply the result of millions of choices one has made). Decondition really means to change how one sees one's self - self-image = Moon. We are totally attached to images of who I am that are not at all who I am. Deconditioning means to release these limited perspectives. The process goes on and on. Emptying is a
necessary precursor. But the natural outcome of emptying is a gradual refilling, into the next level, which we then perceive as so far beyond the previous one. But the day or lifetime will come when even the new "this is so far beyond where I was before" itself will have to be emptied as it too has become too limited. That process never ends as there is always more that we are than we believe we are. So its a continual opening, integrating (also a Uranian function), and then eventual releasing. Its been described as peeling the layers of an onion.
