Unity Consciousness. Restoring Dharma. Strength in Numbers.

AQUARIUS RISING (REIMAGINED) was conceived while meditating in the presence of the “Hugging Saint”, Divine Mother Mata Amritanandamayi in Kerala, India as a means to help raise money for Her charities including Empowering Women and Feeding the Hungry. Aquarius is the sign of ultimate altruism, collective love and giving back to a greater cause.

Aquarius is about making sure everyone has what they need. We are they.

Transitioning from the chaotic and unprecedented waters of 2020 into a new dawning of human consciousness, we’re activating the Star archetype of Aquarius as Jupiter and Saturn align in this constellation of the zodiac on December 21st to set a brand new template and raise the bar for what is possible if we can re-imagine this thing we call life. 

Let’s come together to celebrate our interconnectedness, interdependence and remembrance that the paths are many but the truth is one!

In the true Aquarian spirit of cosmic unity, we’re bringing together an incredible tribe of twelve speakers, each one to carry the energy of each archetypal influence of the twelve signs of the Zodiac to inspire, guide and illuminate the way into 2021.

The 12 Signs of the Zodiac will echo throughout the event, embodied through our brilliant presenters.

Aries initiates and blazes as the pioneering “I Am” principle of the Self. 
Taurus secures us via grounding and embodiment. 
Gemini transmits the messages and switches up the narrative.
Cancer holds space, nurtures and connects us to feeling. 
Leo emboldens us to move from the heart of our inner child to lead with play and creativity. 
Virgo heals via the remedies, rituals, and synthesis. 
Libra helps us balance, harmonize, relate and recalibrate.
Scorpio mesmerizes us into deeper into shadow so we may transform our fears into spiritual devotion. 
Sagittarius restores dharma through wisdom and spiritual teachings. 
Capricorn integrates and masters through time-tested wisdom.
Aquarius brings us together to breathe, liberate, serve, and innovate the collective waters of humanity. 
Pisces inspires us to dream and discover the language of the unconscious, returning us to our Souls.
