Aquarius is an archetypal energy that invites us to questions our reality. Is it really as real as it appears to be? What is Really Real?
Whenever planets are in Aquarius it is an excellent time to question everything – especially what we consider to be real – because what we believe is real does become our reality or at least we perceive it to be our reality.
From the perspective of Quantum Physics our sense of reality is constantly being challenged. In fact, the Quantum Realm deals in part with figuring out how quantum particles and atoms seemingly move in many directions at once.
This includes how they can spin clockwise and anticlockwise simultaneously. Whaaat???
How is that possible?
One of the big questions Quantum Physicists are doing their best to answer is around how a particle can really be located in many places at the same time? This leads to additional questions such as:
Is the Universe continually dividing itself into parallel worlds,
each with an alternative version of the universe we live in?
Is there even such a thing as objective reality?
Studying particles and waves many physicists have concluded they are two sides of the same thing and that this is how we know there is so much more going on in what we think is reality than we may have ever considered.
Donald Hoffman, a cognitive psychologist, popular science author and professor in the Department of Cognitive Sciences at the University of California in Irvine suggests – based on mathematical evidence he has found – absolutely nothing we see in this reality is what we think it is. He has concluded that space and time don’t even really exist. We just perceive them as existing.
This Ted Talk ponders the big question: Do we experience the world as it really is … or as we need it to be? How do our minds actually construct reality for us?

“The problem is not that our perceptions are wrong about this or that detail. It’s that the very language of objects in space and time is simply the wrong language to describe objective reality.” ~Donald Hoffman
WOW! Just considering these ideas is already altering my reality and maybe yours too as this is a potent reminder that whatever we believe is REAL may not actually be real except for the fact that we believe it.

Maybe our opportunity in 2021 and beyond is to question everything in our reality?
What you are experiencing as oh so real may only be so because you believe it is real and if you changed your perspective your whole reality just might change as a result.
So, if our reality isn’t what we want it to be or there are changes we would like to see and experience then what if we open ourselves to new possibilities that we haven’t yet imagined?
Truly there is no better time to begin this type of inquiry and to keep the inquiry going until we are experiencing the reality of our conscious, aware and insightful choosing!
For some reason I am feeling this quote from Mark Twain is also worth considering as it reminds me of the Star Wars line when the Jedi Obi Wan Kanobi tells the Storm Troopers “These aren’t the droids you are looking for” and the Storm Troopers move on as if it were true!
“It’s easier to fool people than to convince them they have been fooled.”
