Are we in the Age of Aquarius?
Consulting our history books shows us that astronomers as far back in time as Ancient Egypt recorded that planet Earth’s movement, in relation to the constellations, had a greater cosmic cycle of around 26,000 years. And this cycle became known as the Great Year with each constellation visited for approximately 2000 years.
The astronomy of the ‘Precession of the Vernal Equinoxes’ is complicated, fascinating and would require at least an ‘age’ of its own to fully explain. Are we leaving or have left the Age of Pisces? And are we now entering or arrived at the Age of Aquarius? You probably already think that I made a mistake by saying we have moved from Pisces into Aquarius – please bear with me!
You see the Great Year is based on the Equinox pointers to constellations and moves the opposite way to the Sun’s path through the zodiac. The Sun/moon gravitational pull is unequal. The result is that we know the Universe certainly does not move to the tune of the calendar in use by humans!
We may not be able to say the exact time of entry (!) but it is safe to say that we are in the Aquarius arrivals hall. I work on the premise that there is no cusp. A planet is either in one constellation or another and we are planet Earth and so (imo) now IN Aquarius!
So what is Aquarius?
Aquarius is depicted as the water bearer however is actually an air sign. Now ruled by Uranus the ‘older’ rulership was by Saturn. Putting those two planets together can sometimes seem at odds with each other. And yet, when we delve deeper, there is an energy blend that gives so much great potential for newly built structures and quite brilliant systems. And, of course, a need for awareness of boundaries in the online world. We may see an incredible creativity about to emerge or emerging. There is no way of knowing just what the next two thousand years will mean for us however maybe new technologies, new ways of communicating and contacting life beyond our known Universe!
What will/does this mean for us?
Do a quick search and you will see many ways to look at this however I’m going to concentrate on just a particular thought process.
Humans create Technology … Technology leads to Connections …
Connections with Humanity … Humanity creates stunning Creativity …
Will we remember our roots?
As we move into this new era and age it becomes more crucial, not less, that we remember why we are here. See the evolution and the great expansiveness of our reaching out all around the planet and beyond. And about anchoring ourselves on the Earth by taking care of ourselves in mind, body and spirit.
Is this the Age of Aquarius? ‘YES’! And our brilliant, helpful, inspirational Universe shows us new ways of connecting and evolving. Perhaps one challenge, and we have had an introduction to this throughout 2020, will be to reach out to each other as much as is possible. Don’t forget to smile and chat in real life!
Please delve into your ancestral roots and memories to hear the gentle whispers from times gone by. There are many forms of communication and that, also, will become much more apparent as we move into this new Great Age!
