The Age of Aquarius
Last Sunday I attended a 2016 New Year Forecast lecture at the Apollo Theater presented by the Wisdom Temple which featured a presentation by Astrologists Gale Armstead. Gale’s talked about the new Aquarian age and how to prepare for it as we move into the New Year motivated further research to write my first article for 2016.
Astrologers maintain that an astrological age is a product of the earth’s slow precessional rotation and last for 2,160 years on average (26,000-year period of precession/ 12 zodiac signs = 2,160 years) In Sun sign astrology the sign of Aquarius comes before Pisces but in astrological ages the signs move in the opposite direction allowing the Age of Aquarius to follow the Age of Pisces.
Enlightenment and the expansion of consciousness were the two main factors that Gale and many astrologers predict will be experienced by a greater number of people in this beginning shift from the Age of Pisces to the Age of Aquarius. The Mayan Great Cycle and early Egyptian astrological predictions agreed that 2012 would be the true beginning of the shift ending one cycle and the start of a new cycle.
Astrologist Vera Reid attributes many of the current World crises to the transition from the external material mental energy of the Age of Pisces to the incoming internal spiritual mental energy of the Age of Aquarius which takes 280 years to complete. If the cycle shift started in 2012, we most likely will not be around in 2292 (276 years from now) when the cycle is completed; but we are blessed to be a part of the beginning.
Reid believes that some people will experience mental enlightenment in advance of others and will be recognized as new leaders in the beginning of the new age. Astrologist Sandra Weaver also believes that the great turmoil in the world during this early stage of Aquarius is a way of making room for new values of love, brotherhood, unity and integrity.
Weaver states that “the Aquarian Age points to the direction of our own evolution in consciousness. We are each being asked to make a choice. We can cling to the old outdated values or adopt the new evolving ones. Our happiness and peace depends on our choice and the change will take place whether we like it or not.
If you are reading this article it is for a reason, you now are aware that your ability to elevate your spiritual consciousness is greater now than ever before; don’t let fear and doubt stand in your way to self-empowerment.
