A New Dawn
So, the Age of Aquarius is upon us, but what does it actually mean??!! Well, there is a bit of a difference of opinion between factions, some believe it is already here having started in the early 20th Century, some believe it will begin in the 24th Century, but a lot believe this is now the time of its dawning. As the zodiac moves out of its 2150(60) year path of Pisces it has now reached a point of transition. The Age of Aquarius began when the March equinox point we moved out of the constellation Pisces, into the constellation Aquarius. It takes around 200-300 years to gradually transition from one age to another. And right now, we move from the Age of Pisces to the Age of Aquarius. The time that new agers back in the 60s & 70s (and yes up to now) revelled about. I think the song “Age of Aquarius” by 5th Dimension pretty much says it all!
I believe this is why there has been an exponential growth of people leaving the mainstream religions and finding their own path to enlightenment. We are moving out of the egocentric and into a humanistic phase. A focus more towards naturality, humanity and traditional (olde) ways of spirituality. A focus inwards to themselves, with a mindful approach of understanding we all form the same whole. We all belong to the same web, mystical threads that bind each and everyone together. The closer (in a spiritual context) we are to one another, the stronger the threads we weave.
The Age of Aquarius’ ultimate goal is individual freedom and liberation - hence the influx of individuals now awakening. Reading numerous texts, forums and books whilst keeping an eye on current affairs there is a definite shift occurring. Even though my business is still a little fledgling in comparison to some, more and more are contacting or following/liking my Instagram and FB pages. It seems the universal cords have been plucked and people are receiving the vibration. A “new Renaissance” or triumph of Aquarius’ highest values: humanitarianism, knowledge, reason, innovation, and people who work towards a greater goal.
In the last two decades there has been a transcendent shift, LGBT rights, women’s rights, men’s rights, disability rights, children’s rights and just look at what has happened during 2020. The time of transition, people standing up and voicing their inner truths - BLM, Greta Thunberg and so on, to equalise the playing field. Because we realise that things need to change from the systems we have been forced to live under for Centuries. The coming together of minds for a focus for all - the Greater Good, not just the self-serving individual. We are now learning we are not a single mass entity - easy to control and manoeuvre ‘en masse, but that each individual has purpose, with each person being as important as the next.
The Jupiter-Saturn conjunction on December 21st, 2020 was the final push to mark the the official beginning of the Age of Aquarius, where Aquarius was at 0°. As Aquarius is an air sign, it represents intellect and ideas with dear old Aquarius being the sign of innovation, technology, and revolution, Aquarian foci is mainly on collective well-being, logical thought and innovative growth, which I think we can all agree will feel like a much needed breath of fresh air. Hopefully it can deliver some much-needed glimmers of hope for the future.
“Harmony and understanding
Sympathy and trust abounding
No more falsehoods or derisions
Golden living dreams of visions
Mystic crystal revelation
And the mind's true liberation
