“So this is Christmas.
And what have we done?
Another year over,
And a new one begun”
Much of the world marks the birth of Christ on December 25 even though many of us know darn well that the chances of Christ being born on this actual day is pretty close to nil.
He was the herald of the Age of Pisces, a symbol of man’s potential to rise beyond the limitations of our body so that we can reach out to the heavens.
We are young species compared to others on this planet. Our baser natures can drive us to murder our own kind, a rarity in the animal world. Yet we are a cooperative species, in which we will send aid and comfort to those who are nameless and faceless, yet whose plight move us to compassion. In our species toolbox is insatiable curiosity, and the opposable thumb. We have the capacity to reason and with this reason see beyond ourselves, to other dimensions that exist in the Universe.
Yet for all our incredible abilities and what we’ve accomplished, many of us still fail to grasp the lesson the herald of the Age of Pisces tried to tell us—
“Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do . . . “
John 14:12 (English Standard Version Bible, 2001)
Whenever asked if he was the “son of God”, Jesus would answer,
“I am the son of man” claiming his humanity. When crafting a prayer for all of us to recite, he started with the words, “Our Father” declaring that we are all Children of God.
So two thousand and some plus years has passed and now it is time for a New Age, what all us freaky astrologers and New Agers have been talking about since the 60’s. This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius.
There are those who are heading full tilt into 2012 End Times prophesy, basing their declarations with misunderstandings of the “The Book of Revelations” and the “ending” of the Mayan Calendar.
Nothing can be further from the truth.
What is happening in 2012 is that, according to Don Cerow, we are officially entering into the Age of Aquarius. This is earth shaking, world changing news for sure but hardly apocalyptic. Us astrologers have been expecting this for two thousand years.
We’ve already seen shifts in humanity’s collective consciousness. Baby boomer’s parents who didn’t even know a television was possible now talk to their children through Facebook. We hold conversations and play internet games in an instant with people on the other side of the world. Prior to Zuckerberg’s invention, the only people who had friends in other countries were world travelers. Now we find them through social media.
It’s an Aquarian world folks.
The “discovery” of the planet of individuation, Uranus, the ruler of Aquarius, on March 13, 1781, was the first hint of the destiny of humankind. Our fates with the “arrival” of this planet were no longer subject to our station in life. Upward mobility became a possibility not for a few but the majority of the inhabitants of planet Earth. The “American Dream” was born and its promise quickly spread around the planet. But with this great opportunity comes greater responsibility.
There are those that seek to keep us in darkness that wants to control us so they can take our wealth and our resources for themselves. They tell us that someone has to be in charge, to manage things. They tell us that there is a “right” way and a “wrong” way to do things and they know the right way. This is old thinking. The Aquarian dichotomy is sharing resources freely for the betterment of the collective. The Aquarian goal is to allow each person to live their truth within the framework of serving the community. As long as we allow those “in power” to make decisions for us, we will be slaves to a paradigm that will increasingly fail in the days to come. This isn’t a prediction. We’ve already seen the failure to distribute resources to the collective at work.
At each turning of the zodiac wheel, when a new dichotomy applies to planet Earth, a new herald arrives to point the way, to remind the human heart of that which the human soul already knows, that we are all divine children of the Universe. But during the Age of Aquarius, a special calling is made to humanity. Edgar Cayce tells us of the “Second Coming of Christ”:
Is He abroad today in the earth? Yea, in those that cry unto Him from every corner; for He, the Father, hath not suffered His soul to see corruption; neither hath it taken hold on those things that make the soul afraid. For, He IS the Son of Light, of God, and is holy before Him. And He comes again in the hearts and souls and minds of those that seek to know His ways.
Need I say more? We are all heralds of the Age of Aquarius.
Let’s live up to that.
