Thread: Someone Called Me An Aqua?

    Someone Called Me An Aqua?

    So, a good friend of mine, who is a Pagan high priest, said I was an aqua, to put that gift to good use, and then said I'd been his aqua for a very long time.

    I haven't the foggiest idea what that even means. Ideas, anyone? Google was no help whatsoever.

    Maybe they meant a water sign as in the zodiac? Water sign people tend to be tied to their emotions and the undercurrent of emotions.

    That's the confusing bit: I'm a Taurus!

    Well... Maybe it's the element that moves you?

    Maybe he doesn't know as much as you think... or as he thinks! Not a term I have heard outside of zodiac signs.

    My thought is to come right out and ask him what he means. I agree, that the term is rather vague.

    Never heard of it.
    “You have never answered but you did not need to. If I stand at the ocean I can hear you with your thousand voices. Sometimes you shout, hilarious laughter that taunts all questions. Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."
    ~~Stephen Jay Gould, Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett

    I've never heard of this either. But this line:

    Sends up a serious red flag for me. It's not uncommon for people who assume authority positions (whatever authority that may be) to claim some sort of power/control/ownership over someone who is still learning and uses those tools to manipulate someone else. For whatever their intentions may be.

    If he's a good friend of yours, it shouldn't be a big deal to ask him to elaborate on his definition and meaning. I don't know your relationship or the context of the conversation, so I can't say for sure what was meant by it or if there are any underlying intentions behind it.

    And I'm a bit paranoid to begin with anyway. Just my two cents.

    That line sent up red flags for me, too... but for different reasons. He'll try anything to get me to stay longer when I visit. Also, I'm empathic, and I felt so much pain in him after I left last time. A Native friend of mine who has her own gifts kept seeing the word "envy" around him.

    In that case I would say trust your instincts and take that claim with a (huge) grain of salt. Better to be safe than sorry.
