Most people are caught up in confusion created by the debate and varying opinions on when the Aqe of Aquarius began. Let's clear that up...
First of all, let's understand the spring equinox which is also known as the vernal equinox. This is the moment each year when the Sun enters the first sign of the zodiac as he traverses the celestial equator northbound bringing longer days to the northern hemisphere. Quite simply, the sun commences his annual pilgrimage through the twelve 30 degree signs of the zodiac on March 20th every year as the plane of the earth's equator passes through the center of the Sun.
Part of the confusion about the Age of Aquarius is created because the vernal equinox still occurs well within the constellation of Pisces. However, this is a reference to the constellations and not to the signs of the zodiac or the great cycle of the equinox (the precession of the Equinoxes). The constellations do not represent zodiacal positions or influences. They do, however, symbolize the meaning of the signs of the zodiac...
The great cycle of the equinox (25,868 earth year Precession of the Equinoxes) refers to earth's gyratory cycle. The earth gyrates like a spinning top because the poles are flattened causing the gravitational pull of the planets to be greater at the equator. This causes the poles to rotate in a small circle. However, it takes the entire planet 25,868 years to complete this gyration. It is this cycle of the earth's gyration that causes the point at which the Sun crosses the equator at the time of the vernal equinox to move very slowly backwards through the signs.
Always remember that the 25,868 year Precession of the Equinoxes describes the backward movement of the vernal equinox through the constellations which is completely separate from the Sun's annual movement or pilgrimage through the 12 signs of the zodiac regulating our seasons. When dealing with a skeptic who clearly knows nothing about astronomy or astrology, invite said skeptic to wear a bikini north of New York in December. The skeptic is usually a man, but there are some silly women out there as well.
So what does all of this have to do with the Age of Aquarius? Just as the progression of your natal astrology precisely depicts each step in your journey during this lifetime, the Precession of the Equinoxes accurately describes our collective journey or evolution during that time. Now, the term "evolution" carries a connotation of progress, but I see our evolution more in terms of a wave cycle. If you turn on the news, I am sure that you will agree that humankind is not necessarily improving. Alternatively, we can say that we are improving in some ways but declining in others. Think of it in terms of your own life. You might be improving yourself spiritually, but not necessarily worshipping and improving your physical body. The human species is improving its technological capabilities, but are we using them well to become closer to spirit? Or is the human species collectively now very divorced from deity?
Now, remember that the precession of the equinoxes backwards or clockwise through the twelve 30 degree signs of the zodiac describes our condition here on earth. There is an undeniable correlation between the journey of humanity and this precession of the equinoxes through the twelve signs of the zodiac. The zodiac is a 360 degree circle which means that each of the twelve signs covers 30 degrees. The precession of the equinoxes occurs during a 25,868 year period. The precession through each sign lasts, therefore, 2,156 years. As each sign of the zodiac is always broken down in various different ways (decans, terms, etc.), we can easily drill down to greater degrees of granularity within humankind's journey. More about that another time.
This means that the starting point of Aquarius is 30 degrees backwards from the beginning point of Aries. Why? Because Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and it is preceded by the sign of Pisces which is preceded by the sign of Aquarius. Remember that the precession moves backwards or clockwise through the zodiac.
We have moved from the age of Christ (Fish) or the age of Pisces (fish) to the Age of Aquarius. This progression symbolizes humanity's development from the age of pure belief (Pisces) to the age of science and knowledge (Aquarius). During the age of Pisces, people simply believed what they were told to believe; their paradigm was constructed by the powers that be. We are now evolving towards understanding rather than pure belief. This does not mean that Christ did not exist. Neither does it mean that our understanding is now free and unrestricted. Knowledge is hoarded in order to control people and their paradigm. Hence the statement "knowledge is power".
Remember also that we shifted from travel by sea to travel by air. This reflects that transition from the water sign Pisces to the air sign Aquarius.
The Age of Aquarius began in 1881 when science began making enormous advances. Note that the age of Aquarius is ruled by Uranus and Saturn. Uranus is symbolic of inventions, breakthroughs, eureka moments, higher thinking, astrology and electricity. And sure enough, electricity has been used as a source of power since 1881.
And so you have it... The Aqe of Aquarius began in 1881. And this, my friends, is why the Grand Gallery of the Great Pyramid at Giza contains 1881 pyramidal inches.
More about the truths of the Great Pyramid in my new video presentation coming soon. In the meantime, check out the first video presentation which is the first of many.
I realized this week that not many of my clients are aware that I offer channeled readings by recording. I do these recordings in deep trance. If you would ever like one, here is a link.
May the stars be aligned to serve and support you on your travels ever closer to deity.
