The Sun On Aquarius 18: A Person Being Unmasked
The Sun is on Aquarius 18: A PERSON BEING UNMASKED AT A MASQUERADE
This is the degree that Mercury went retrograde on about 2 and a half weeks ago. So, we’ve seen this degree a bit in that there is another ‘Mask’ degree in Aquarius that Mercury went over. So, we’ve had a bit of experience lately with ‘masks’ and ‘unmasking’. Is it time to see how you may be projecting out onto others things that you may be responsible for yourself? Have you got people around you who are not quite what they seem? Is someone untrue or manipulative?
Is there a need to acknowledge the beauty within you without the social claptrap and rubbish that we so often force on ourselves?
This Symbol shows the ability, or the need, to be able to see through others; to be able to “Unmask” people, to reveal one self or hide away when it’s needed. A “Person” is having their mask stripped away; they’re no longer able to “Masquerade”, they are revealing themselves, who they are and even what their intentions may be. Secret motives may have a purpose at the time they are concealed, but they almost invariably become known in the course of time. You may find that you, or someone else, finds themselves in this situation at times. Your first concern may be for the difficulties and embarrassment that can arise, but staying true to one’s integrity will help to save face and your reputation.
Secret motives exposed. Having to face one’s self. Judgment about true worth. Gaining true insight into someone. Wearing a mask that suits situations. The joy of surprise.
The Caution: Detrimentally revealing your self too quickly or early. Finding answers that aren’t welcome. Revealing a fraud. Charades, pretense and ploys to manipulate. Lies.
