“When the moon is in the Seventh House
And Jupiter aligns with Mars
Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars
This is the dawning of the age of Aquarius.”
– The 5th Dimension
The Age of Aquarius
Do you recognize the verses of the 5th Dimension song released in the late 60’s for the musical Hair? The song infers that in the Age of Aquarius, there will be more harmony, understanding, sympathy and trust.
Some astrologists say it began to shift into this new age around the winter solstice of 2020 – although there is no consensus. If so, this new age will last 2160 years.
Personally, being an Aquarian, I think it’s kind of cool. Both the potential of it — and also that I rule. My husband is not going to like this news.
What could this mean for us? We need to get beyond the enemy paradigm. Meaning, stop fighting what we don’t want and promote what we do want (perhaps the hippies had it right). This isn’t work for everyone else, it is our work. Because who we are as people shape the society around us. …And the society around us shapes us.
Whether it is about shifting into a new age or personally regrouping, January and February are always a good time to pull within to rest and rejuvenate. For how long? Until it feels unnecessary to do so anymore. You have permission to take time to be alone; to be lazy; to rest; to say no to obligations and the expectations of others. To not rush about so dang much.
Because Marla, the Aquarian, declared it so.
