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
Age of Aquarius
Sympathy and trust abounding
No more falsehoods or derisions
Golden living dreams of visions
Mystic crystal revelation
And the mind’s true liberation Aquarius
~ sung by the ensemble group ‘The Fifth Dimension’
Do you remember the song “The Age of Aquarius” released in 1968? I was a very young teenager and I saw them perform it live on stage at, of all places, the Michigan State Fair. The song captured the hearts and imaginations of millions, promising a golden new age to come.
I am in no way an astrologer. But I do know, from many sources, that what is called The Grand Conjunction in the sign of Aquarius (the sign of the collective mindset and consciousness) is occurring on Monday December 21, 2020. This is what the ensemble group The Fifth Dimension sang about. You will be able to gaze upon the stars and see a juxtaposition of Saturn and Jupiter, their shining bodies nearly touching in the night sky, forming a luminous orb of light
This promising astrological conjunction occurs the same day as the Winter Solstice. Both of these events herald the dark night opening out and letting the light in. The light of peace, harmony, and understanding. No more illusions, a time for the way of the heart, the song and the astrologers tell us.
Visionary Fiction authors write about shifts in consciousness. A profound shift of consciousness will be happening in ‘real’ life during this Conjunction/Solstice. It will not happen overnight of course, but the portal will be opened, the threshold inviting us to cross into a new way of being. I, for one, will celebrate this potent event with meditation, prayer, and ritual honoring my vision of the new dawn.
My vision of a new dawn is one of the evolutionary force of embodied love. The sacred feminine divine heart emerging and made manifest.
What is your vision of the Age of Aquarius?
