ASIACT Astrology - January 2011
Many people believe that humility is the opposite of pride, when, in fact, it is a point of equilibrium. The opposite of pride is actually a lack of self esteem. A humble person is totally different from a person who cannot recognize and appreciate himself as part of this world’s marvels.
As our world expands, humanity is and will be required to accept information that is highly specialised and technical. Once upon a time a Book of Knowledge contained all that was known to mankind; this is no longer true. We are now almost entirely dependent upon experts and we probably in turn feel frustrated, relieved and amazed by this fact.
Our growing interdependence requires a certain humility to accept that we need to rely on others to organise the more complex aspects of global coordination. The concept of the Global Village and the knowing that we are all one not only supports us but also feeds a collective anxiety that we personally experience in our daily lives. And so each one of us must find avenues of extra-perception which include a core sense of self – being humble enough to see our own divinity and the divinity in everything and in everyone. This deeply felt inner security allows us to contain our collective anxiety and transform it into personal growth.
Royal Blue in an Aura-Soma sense represents the contact point between the divine mind and human thought: soul support is fed in from above. One of the gifts of the Archangel Raphael represented in Bottle 96, royal blue/royal blue is to support us to find the peace that resides at our inner core, to experience the appreciation and accompanying humility when we enter a moment with nothing much happening yet feeling that we are inextricably connected to the all that is – a moment of clarity.
Choosing any of the six bottles with royal blue as a fraction could mean that a transformation is occurring at many levels within our self: a dream of the end of time. The acceptance and peace of the royal blue allows our witness to emerge and moves us into a self sovereignty from where we are able to trust our heart and let go of our outer roles to give us importance.
The essence of Bottle 47, The Old Soul, royal blue/lemon yellow is to ‘bring a deep healing of the heart. I free the intuition to work with ancient knowledge’. Mike Booth. An old soul brings an immense gift often unassumingly packaged.
Bottle 32, Sophia, royal blue/gold and Bottle 97, Archangel Uriel, gold/royal blue, both combine two tertiary colours opposite each other on the Aura-Soma colour rose bringing the entire continuum of healing to bear on patterns within the royal blue to do with identifying with what we have been in the past and re-examining our purpose and our sense of values: ‘Do not lose sight of humility at this stage. It is more important than ever. ‘ Mike Booth. These bottles both shake together as green underlining that our truth and our love live in our heart where our natural humility resides: our heart knows and is filled with love instead of fear.
As we consciously align with our essence, our heart opens, our ancient wisdom (gold) spontaneously reveals itself and the light within shines a little brighter.
