It surprised and delighted me to learn that there is not a universal consensus with regard to whether or not we are experiencing, The Dawning of the Age of Aquarius…
Apparently, there is a dispute of which I was not previously aware as a fan of The Mamas and The Papas, irregardless of my awareness of another controversy which concerns the paternity of a certain 70’s television star, (it probably wasn’t one of the “Papas”); but, I digress.
From Wikipedia: Age of Aquarius:
The Age of Aquarius is an astrological term denoting either the current or forthcoming astrological age, depending on the method of calculation. Astrologers maintain that an astrological age is a product of the earth’s slow precessional rotation and lasts for 2,160 years, on average (26,000 year period of precession / 12 zodiac signs = 2,160 years). In popular culture, the Age of Aquarius refers to the advent of the New Age movement in the 1960s and 1970s.
The “Ages”, unlike sun signs, for instance, move in a backwards, regressive, or retrograde fashion, such that The Age of Pisces temporaneously precedes The Age of Aquarius.
Suppose that we are in The Age of Pisces whereby the feminine principle insists that we all behave as if we are gynocentric schools of fish, and “the fetus” is a center of polarized obsession whether as an exalted or degraded icon, such that Pro Life vs. Pro Choice is one of the conflicts of our age.
In progressive-turning astrology, phases of life are represented by each sign:
Pisces: The Fetus/The Feet
Aries: The Infant/The Head
Taurus: Materialism/The Throat
Gemini: Sociability/The Lungs
Cancer: Home/The Chest and Stomach
Leo: Children/The Heart and Stomach
Virgo: Aestheticism/Digestive System
Libra: Justice and Beauty/Kidneys
Scorpio: Death/Sex organs
Sagittarius: Free Spirit/Liver
Aquarius: The Angel/Circulatory system
The peak and devolutionary nature of Feminism itself to me represents the transition from the obsession with the fetus to the notion of peak consciousness or the angel. However, since Feminists seem to insist that peak consciousness is “female” then it would seem natural to me that there might be some mis-intuition with regard to which Age we are in today.
More from Wikipedia: Age of Aquarius:
Vera Reid takes a common position expressed by many astrologers and New Agers about the Age of Aquarius. Reid sees the Age of Aquarius as that time when mankind takes control of the Earth and its own destiny as its rightful heritage. As such, mankind will become the “Son of God” (Aquarius13). Reid believed that the keyword for Aquarius is “enlightenment“. The destiny of mankind in the Age of Aquarius is the revelation of truth and the expansion of consciousness.
Reid also believed that many of the world’s crises are attributable to the waning days of the Age of Pisces meeting the incoming tide of Aquarius, with the transition between ages lasting approximately 280 years. Reid also promoted the idea that some people will experience mental enlightenment in advance of others and therefore be recognized as the new leaders in the world.
The Warmists or Climate Hysterics might also have a vested interest in viewing our current age as the “dawning” of The Age of Aquarius, under the assumption that all Deniers such as myself are destined to be destroyed.
Whereas women who deny their own age, are supposedly more enlightened than creatures such as myself who regularly announce it. I’m 53.
In a school of fish, the most protected members are those on the inside, i.e., “The Party”, with the illusion of “equality” or “egalitarianism” serving as sort of an hypnosis or trance that keeps the young fish on the outside, protecting the big, fat, older fish on the inside.
Or perhaps, the inner fish are not necessarily “fat” but possess extraordinary charisma:
