It’s easy to view psychic phenomena as an emotional capacity, such as through the element of water within the zodiac. Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces will demonstrate emotional levels of psychic aptitude. In Cancer, we sense how other people are feeling – we are empathic. In Scorpio, we have deep hunches and sense the undercurrents, the emotional subtext. In Pisces, boundaries are blurred such that information permeates through without effort.
However, the quality of being psychic can be understood through any of the signs. Virgo psychic quality may be the ability to read someone’s somatics through the hands, like a massage therapist who understands things about a person based on information held in the muscle tissue. Taurus may gain psychic insight about an environment through grounding into it. But for the moment, I want to draw attention to the Aquarius realm of psychic insight, which contains some of the following:
- Due to not being attached to conditioned forms of information reception (Aquarius correlates with detachment), other streams of information can come through.
- Aquarius relates to the higher airwaves – things like the internet, or even the quality of telepathy – psychic thought transmission. Not all psychic exchange is emotional per se – sometimes it is more informational or data oriented. Aquarius can conduct this kind of mental electricity. On the mundane level, this is like thinking of a friend right before they text you! Digital instant messaging is a simultaneous metaphor for other kinds of instant messaging.
- Aquarius relates to our ability to tap into Higher Mind – whether it is our own individuation or the collective consciousness. From this frame of consciousness, nothing is ever invented because everything already exists. One simply reaches into the collective database.
- The phenomenon of channeling.
- Think along the lines of Edgar Cayce… and/or the Akashic Records.
- If we are to think about the cultural norm that the past is remembered but not the future (because it is culturally accepted that time is a linear structure and only the past can be recalled), Aquarius could challenge this cultural norm by remembering the future.
And so what are the implications of the collective database? I tend to theorize that while information can be breached in that realm, (relating to shocks in that read of the Uranus/Aquarius archetype), there is also a certain resonance principle, meaning we can access information to which we are already in the realm of, or is already “likemind”. This would mean there is a personalized filter through which a person may access information from the collective database, ensuring relevancy and a level of egoic protection. I mean, think about it – do you really want to know everything? I imagine what kind of security exists in the realm of Higher Mind, for the sake of the information itself or the sake of the seeker’s mental stability.
Another theory I have is that an individual consciousness can receive more information from Higher Mind according to their desire to as well as their spiritual/emotional maturity to handle the information that will come through (or, an individual can at the least set this intention as to not open Pandora’s Box). When there is not this level of maturity or ability to hold the information, people may be deeply overwhelmed. This could be another reason, among many others, why people subtly turn off their psychic ability. This is an interesting thing to think about. If brought up or embedded into a culture in which materialism and empiricism rule consensus thought, these ideas are not commonly spoken about, which leaves this as a pretty wild frontier for anyone who stumbles or wakes up into it.
When reading Marina Abramovic’s memoir, Walk Through Walls, I learned of a season of her life which she spends with Aborigines, among whom it is simply normal in their culture that entire dialogues occur psychically, without verbalization. This could point to another aspect of Aquarian psychic aptitude in a materialistic culture such as many of ours, which would be the ability to pick up on information that is not traditionally the vessel of communication as prescribed by cultural norms. Psychic ability is not just a personal thing in this example, but a cultural one!
And lastly, considering the square to Aquarius – Scorpio: we tend to merge with the things we focus deeply upon. Therefore, if we are earnest about a question and focus upon it enough, we are quite likely to find answers. Unless we are focusing very hard upon the emotional sensation of not knowing, in which case we may continue to not know.

What thoughts do you have on the sentience of the likemind? There’s a theory running the helm of some thinking in parapsychology that some information receipt/interference is controlled by a sort of trickster entity.

Hi Anastasia! I haven’t heard of that theory, but I’m wary of ideas like that. I meant likemindedness here such as between people or beings.

I’ve had this page open since you published it, trying to bring my thoughts on this topic together (I have quite a few). In short…I’ve been thinking a lot about the connection between Aquarius and psychism. Like you mentioned, it’s more intuitive to connect the water signs with the concept. But the Aquarian mind works so quickly and cohesively that it’s almost like “seeing” through a synthesis of parts — possibly the parts gathered by Gemini? The Aquarian function or person can take information and place it into a coherent image or notion, so that it’s almost like foreseeing the future — but it’s really just likely outcome based on current information.
Then there’s the fact that Aquarius is linked with the astral planes… I’m still working on that one.
Thanks for your wonderful writing 🙂

Thanks Amanda 🙂 These ideas are transportive and great insights. Thanks for sharing them! I think you’re right that Aquarius does have a kind of synthesis power, and ability to rapidly make connections (as though foreseeing the future, and in a way time traveling in the mind).

Wow perfect synchronicity. I was just searching for information on what it means to have an Aquarius North Node before I clicked here
I’m a Gemini Sun & Moon, Aqua NN & the information DEFINITELY comes in! People are a little put off by how well air is able to solve problems/patterns (in my experience). Also, I believe in telepathy 100%. It’s a recent belief for me. I have only tested it by deliberately asking my friend to call me a few times, and it worked!
Then there are times right before I drift asleep, I’m having full on conversations in my mind (oh Gemini…), and when I stop and ask myself what the heck I was just thinking about and what was the details of the conversation, I immediately forget.
And the reason I have not explored these things in detail is precisely because of what you mentioned about not being able to handle the information. Not being ready. The power of thought is intense so it doesn’t matter if your fear is real or imagined you will put yourself in hell.
For now I will stick to research, taking hints when a page dosen’t load or something else glitchy happens because 9 times out of 10 it’s always something I should have left alone!

Hi! This is cool! 🙂 I once had a phone that stopped working when I was angry. It’s short-circuiting at me was one of the first times I considered that my technology and I might be in more of a mystical relationship than I’d thought, since I wasn’t able to send my angry texts and had to reflect for a moment longer instead. I think a lot about the dream symbol potentials (in waking life) and technology being one avenue through which the Universe expresses itself – even if we think it to be artificial somehow. We are still implicated/involved with it, and it is a major force in connecting humanity across the globe… so what possibilities! Thanks for sharing your experiences here.

I’m in total shock. I’m an aquarius and iv been having visions and strong intuition for awhile now and I hear clear voices giving me precise information about almost anything. It has scared me when I’m open to it cuz its been so spot on. My close friend wz n her car driving to work and she was praying for something.. a voice n my head distinctly said to call her and let her know nothing bad is going to happen. When she answered and I told her that she started crying and she literally just got done praying asking for a certain thing to b ok. I can go on and on. I quit listening alot cuz when u explain this to some ppl they think u r crazy and I have thot I might b crazy alot. This blows my mind. I have felt such a strong power inside me. This other extreme vast intelligence of an extreme higher kind. It has personality too and voice speaks n my head like an extremely, ironically precise manner. This cudnt b more true! Like who and how .. lol. O wait I guess I can ask lol. Wow this is great overwhelment. It feels like w.e is inside of me is way too big and monstrosity of a project to take on. That may explain y I’m dating a Taurus

I’m working on a small research experiment among non delusional thought broadcasters including myself and the placement of Aquarius in their birth charts.
