The beveled edges of our glass table tops create prisms. As the midday sun shines through the windows rainbows appear and move through the living room.
I’ve had a thing about rainbows for as long as I can remember. The magic and promise they hold lifts my spirits, even on the dreariest of days. While living in Hawaii a few years ago I was amazed by how often I saw rainbows–it became a daily occurrence and after a while the day just didn’t seem complete without making my rainbow connection.
In astrology, the planetoid, Chiron, in Aquarius for just over a year now, is called the Rainbow Bridge between Saturn–conventional, methodical, traditional wisdom and down to earth discipline and Uranus–cutting-edge, future focused, intuitive, out-of-the-box (box? what box? was there a box?) quantum leaps of consciousness. Chiron bridges the conscious and the super-conscious allowing us to use what we know to expand into something beyond what was previously possible.
The sign Aquarius is co-ruled by Saturn and Uranus which may explain some of the quirkiness of those born under this sign. Some tend to be more scientifically oriented and others wild inventor types, still others an interesting mix of both ends of that particular spectrum.
I am delighted by rainbows, whether I spot them in the sky after a storm or lighting for a moment on my skin, as happened with the one above; they are a divine reminder to lighten up, that anything is possible and all truly is well.
