Calendar of the Sun
Day of the Water Bearer – Beginning of Aquarius
Colors: Purple and electric blue
Altar: Set with cloth of purple and electric blue, with a tall glass vase holding carbonated water, or plain water with dry ice in it, a feather from a large bird, incense, and a Uranus symbol.
Offerings: A joke that no one has heard yet. Do something differently, or in a new way.
Daily Meal: Waterfowl such as duck or goose. Or try an entirely new and preferably foreign sort of cooking or diet for the day.
Invocation to AquariusBearer of the heavenly waters Of knowledge and inspiration, The ebb and flow of the Apsu, Dipped from the Milky Way, Neither man nor woman, Looking ahead in time, Whose gift is Newness, Bless us with the ability To be ready for the future And all it may bring, And welcome rather than fear changes. By the power of all inspiration, You challenge us To be open to new things, And never to give in to stagnation. May we all go forth in wonder.
Chant:Wearing my long wing feathers as I fly Wearing my long wing feathers as I fly I circle around I circle around The boundaries of the Earth.
(Let all present hold hands and dance a simple circle dance while chanting, hands raised high between them. One who is chosen to do the work of the ritual should stand with a great fan, and fan air at the dancers as they pass, like a great wind.)
