The Great Divide.
God's house is divided.
It is split between two conflicting factions.
One is the Fundamentalist/literalist faction.
The other is the Progressive/metaphorical faction.
They both serve the same God.
They both work to establish God's Kingdom on earth.
But their methods are very different.
Our job is to bring unity to God's house.
But how can this be done?
We seek to make peace between the warring factions.
Perhaps astrology holds the key.
The two factions are ruled by two significant planets - the Fundamentalist faction is ruled by Saturn and the Progressive faction is ruled by Uranus.
These two planets are the co-rulers of Aquarius.
Another body - the asteroid Chiron - orbits between Saturn and Uranus.
Chiron was a centaur - half man, half horse - who was a learned and gifted healer.
He taught Asclepius the physician and trained many heroes including Achilles.
He was also an astrologer and oracle.
He is called the wounded healer because he could heal others' wound but not his own wound ( accidentally inflicted by Hercules poisoned arrow).
Chiron bring healing to the conflict between Saturn and Uranus.
He heals the wounds which each has inflicted on the other.
It is unclear at this stage how final peace will be brought about between Saturn and Uranus but the future of the Age of Aquarius depends upon it.
Because both planets rule Aquarius it is unlikely that one will win out over the other.
Both planets will still be present.
So some solution must be found that does not compromise the truth.
And brings unity to God's house.
