Lori: I read in your book that a person’s astrological sign is based on something from a previous life. So please tell me why I am an Aquarius in this life? (I also have my north node in Aquarius in my third house).
Hilarion: There are many aspects of this that have contributed but you are correct in recognizing that this is not only an important contributing lifetime but also what could be considered a doorway lifetime. This occurred toward the later period of an important Atlantean incarnation so far as a number of other individuals were concerned.
You had influence over a group, though not the leader of the group, still in a position of some authority. This was a leadership position that charted out two avenues simultaneously, the more spiritual and the more physical. These were to be brought into people’s consciousness through movement, partly through dance, partly through body awareness, but also through the voice. During this time period however, you became confronted with a series of obstacles, primarily societal in nature, though some relating to family and that of others who you were close to.
These obstacles laid for you the groundwork for many avenues of esoteric study that were to come in subsequent lifetimes. How to interpret various aspects of what society was struggling with, issues of religion versus science, issues of technology and its appropriate utilization, issues of how people could accept their own higher spirituality, come to terms with their own sense of themselves. Their own ability to love others, respect themselves, find themselves in various positions of challenge and many other matters.
During this time period you recognized that there was something that emerged from you that you began to relish or enjoy. It was a little like what happens when you are in a position of leadership but you weren’t actually leading. It was as if a thought form or an energy which was somehow available in your consciousness.
It created a pattern, or a way in which people could relate to each other by your words, by your actions, by your movements, by the things that you taught others, by various ways this eventually was received, communicated to them and in filling out this vision, actually becoming a part of it, the people themselves grew. This was somehow satisfying, it enabled you to go on. There were, as you are aware towards the end of the Atlantean epic many obstacles, some of physical nature that confronted the people there.
Some of these difficulties relating to discoveries in science and technology were not properly used. You had many ways of bringing questions and understanding to consciousness about this, bringing new ways of working with these possibilities. But more importantly the sense that together people could do more. Together an establishment of consciousness could be placed.
This is one of the hallmarks of the symbol associated with Aquarius--the very idea that you can lead without leading. That an energy could be established that you could launch, welcome, be a part of, but then get out of the way. Let it simply flow in its own way. As a result of this have a great deal of satisfaction, love, enjoyment, hope and have the sense that you had contributed something useful, beautiful, helpful and so on.
At the same time as knowing all of those energies there were some profound influences associated with the star Al Deberan. Here with the bringing together of many important new energies relating to the relationship of the birth of a new society out of some of the visions and ideas of the old society were made available to you.
You were not always able to understand these visions or these ideas and you brought this to the attention and understanding of others. To your dismay some of those things that you brought forth in innocence were misused. Used in ways that could not necessarily have to do with the underlying way in which you brought these initially, the way in which they could be ultimately helpful or beneficial to others. Although this was a message from the stars, it was that which was somehow to be interpreted by human beings. To be felt or known in some positive or helpful way.
The result of this was that some of the energies that you saw as having tremendous potential to birth a new society were brought to you, through you and of course to many others, yet ignored by society. Energy and understanding not only denied but in some cases used to cause harm or difficulty to the lives of animals and certain people. During this time period there was for you, the awareness and attunement to other lifetimes. Reincarnation was well known and understood. But at the same time there were many blocks that were naturally placed when lifetimes had a strong emotional component.
Because the technology was fairly well developed in this phase, the opportunity to experience other lifetimes by purely technological means was available to you and of course many other people. This showed you a lifetime, in fact several, in your future, from that time looking forward in time. You began to see some lives, where through superstition, fear, mere ignorance, because awareness of past lives within you was not present, you did not accept this at all.
That in those lifetimes there was as if a shutting away or denial of some of the enlightenment, understanding and even the technology that was available to you in Atlantis. This troubled you and you recognized that there would be times where you would eventually need to overcome that. It was not so much a window or vision into this life specifically but into the generalities similar to this and recent lifetimes where you would consider some of the past life activities that you then began a simple process of focus.
You are then seeing this doorway as being able to enter into any time period you wish forward or back. You can use the metaphor of multiple doorways if you wish. But in Atlantis you utilized the single crystal with the idea that the doorway itself would change. Opening then to any arena, any time that you chose. This is a literal interpretation of the doorway concept. But the basic idea is simply that you would begin by an awareness of that sense of Atlantis.
Many times this is personified nicely by some of the sets utilized in Superman I by the planet Krypton. The intent simply being that some of those sets can remind you of those energies. They are not by any means precise, but the scriptwriters were very much tuned into their Atlantean incarnations when they projected this scenery and various crystalline structures associated with the screenplay.
Having the very idea that for your future self something helpful, valuable about investigation into past lives would be useful, not just for you but for other people and for ways in which the energies about past lives in of itself could be in a new context and so on.
It was also recognized by your consciousness that there would inevitably be a fallback. A time where you would have to push away from this energy, use it up to a certain level, stop and investigate it again. Of course this is part of the nature of this experience- looking into those avenues and understanding.
Astrology is purely symbolic when utilized as a crosscurrent for the various realities exposed through past life regression. After all you would not want to incarnate with the same astrological set every time. But it has been noted here that in many incarnations where Aquarius figures prominently either in important connections in your chart, or as sun, moon, rising, this has been a pivotal, important time of learning, understanding, and awareness.
