Dreaming Aquarius In Dark Times * Are We Living in the Kali Yuga?

As I update this older post, the war in Ukraine has cast a great dark shadow over the wrold. Yes, there have been, and continue to be, other wars, to test our faith in humanity’s progress since the end of the Cold War.

Yet this one – the new Hitler-style eruption of Putin’s Russia – strikes deep within the core of what we had believed was western civilization and its tarnished but still hopeful commitment to freedom, human rights, the rule of law, and the protection and nurturing of identities – national and personal.

For here we are…in truly dark times not seen since World War 2. What happened to the Age of Aquarius? Or are we just discovering its true features now, when all the sentimental songs and slogans have faded, mere memories of an aging generation?

Before this Age of Aquarius passes, it is my prediction – as prophecy and political science  –  that western civilization is on the verge of collapse – that peoples of the West will find themselves experiencing the karma of the West under a Kali Yuga Age of Aquarius. They too will be  caught up in weakened, corrupt, inept and increasingly authoritarian governments; they will see food shortages; mass migrations to escape conflict and climate change will uproot the many, not to mention grass roots violence and the formation of new, unstable, unpredictable communities.

And if my dreams are prophetic, as I reluctantly believe they might be, then it is not too extreme to suggest that the threat of nuclear holocaust will become grim reality…

Stranger In a Strange Land * Aquarius In Love, Community and Friendship

The message Aquarius offers in relationship is that the Love is free…and that Love can only ground itself in something larger than itself – which for Aquarius, is our common world.

Note: It is important to find out if you actually are a Sun-Sign Aquarius since the Sign often begins as early as January 19th and especially if you are born on that day, the actual time of day or evening will be vital to know. Many people spend their lives thinking they are Capricorn, but if you are born on January 19th or 20th, do check your birth chart details at Astro.com where you can fill in your place and time of birth to get your whole chart.

Wherever you have Aquarius in your birth chart, this is the area in your life where Aquarian attitudes and feelings (and karma) will manifest. If you have your Moon in Aquarius, your entire emotional world – and your approach to motherhood, memories and spirituality – will be suffused with Aquarian feelings and their other-worldly attunements.

The Age of Aquarius * Archetype, Origins and the Coming Transformations

The constellation and archetype of Aquarius has been heralded as the forthcoming Age  No one can be sure exactly when the Age of Aquarius began, but we do know this:  Pluto, planet of profound transformation, moves into Aquarius in 2023, and will stay there for almost 20 years.  Its influence will compound all that Aquarius means:  Focus on humanity, planet earth, revolution, transformation, upheaval, conflict and technological leaps undreamed of. 

Aquarians have a reputation for being impractical visionaries, yet they tend to excel as inventors, often in science, medicine and technology, and to continue the Enki paradigm of making the Earth into a Garden in which Humanity can cultivate itself beginning with comfort, safety and health for the unique human body.

Aquarius remembers that while we carry the genes of the early humans within us, we take our Image from those who came from the Stars – out there. These memories convey a keen sense of destiny beckoning us toward the starry heavens. We feel them awaken in astrology, astronomy, NASA, science fiction, Star Trek, Star Wars, and in our longing hearts as we look upwards on a clear night.

The Aquarian Archetype reminds us collectively of our destiny as Humanity, beloved creation, beloved part of the Whole. We are not forever earthbound, but will become a song of Life on the solar winds. Just as ancient space travellers like Enki helped to carry out the Creator’s plan, so we too will carry ourselves, as the Seed Children, to other planets, other systems, other worlds.

Here I explore the Archetype of Aquarius, for if it is true that we have entered into the Age of Aquarius we have little choice but to live through its wild uncharted energies…We need also understand that this Age is not a gentle age of harmony despite our fondest hopes from the Sixties.  Within Aquarius lie explosive, irreversible energies.  There will be no going back, no stuffing of the genie back into the bottle.

And now, a new layer has been added:  the Age of Aquarius is almost certainly about to enter a new phase when Pluto, the karmic and evolutionary planet par excellence, moves into Aquarius in 2023 and remains there through 2043.  Pluto is a take-no-prisoners kind of planetary vibration/energy, corresponding to Scorpio and the number 8. It will stir up darker, violent, and conflict-laden features of archetype Aquarius that are often ignored in astrology and popular culture.

And if, as I note below, the Age of Aquarius was somehow hijacked, squandered, subverted, we need to ask “By whom?” We must find our way back, we who came here as the Baby Boomers, hopeful messengers of a New Age.
