Solstice Meditation Day Three: Aquarius and the Rebel


For a recording of this meditation, please click here:


The modern planet of Uranus rules Aquarius, though its older ruler's influence, Saturn, still lingers. The Star card is the pictorial representation of this figure. The dazzling opal, or even clear quartz can connect you with the energy of the Rebel. Nutmeg is an easily obtained plant for Uranus, and can be burned upon charcoal to attune to the energies of the Rebel. Some say its dangerous to inhale, making it all the more fitting for our work with the sacred Rebel. 

Since this working will be a microcosm of the forces for the month when the Sun is in Aquarius, you might want to pull a Tarot Card, Rune, Ogham or any other divination omen before, or after the workings, to give yourself further insight. 

Entering into a meditative state. Prepare yourself and your space.

On Day Three of the Working, we call upon the Rebel God, the one who dares to steal fire from the heavens, all to advance civilization. As Aquarius, he is the water bearer, but it is the waves of consciousness, which can just as easily be waves of light and information upon the world. 

We call upon the Rebel God.


Out of the darkness, envision first the light of the torch or candle of the rebel. 

Soon the Rebel comes into form, bearing the new wisdom of the new age. 

He brings the gifts to understand the Voice of the Wind. 

He reminds us to keep not only our words, but all our thoughts in good order. 

Not only the water bearer, but the fisher, who throws the line to pull us out of the mire and darkness. 


You bring the Child of Light in your heart to the Rebel. 

Within you, the Two become ones as the Rebel bestows his blessings and lessons. 



The Light Bearer offers his light to the Child, adding to his light and brilliance an opalescent shine, reflecting and refracting all the colors, like a prism. 

You too, receive the Wisdom of the Rebel. 


We thank the Rebel God. Blessed be.


What happens in this vision will help you unfold your experiences for the Month when the Sun occupies the sign of Aquarius.
