Who will care for the poor in the Aquarian Age?

mankind

No one can really tell when the Age of Aquarius begins.  This is a 2160 year cycle, and it doesn’t begin or end on a particular date.  But I believe that we are in the transition period between the Age of Pisces and the Age of Aquarius. The spread of Christianity dominated the Age of Pisces, and while there have been some horrific consequences as a result (think the brutality of the Crusades, the annihilation of Native Americans and other indigenous groups, etc.) it has primarily been Christian and other […]

Venus retrograde – the significance of 40 days and 40 nights

noah

Venus turns retrograde only every two years or so which makes it one of the more rare astrological events (the outer planets retrograde every year and Mercury retrogrades four times a year).  When a planet is retrograde, meaning it APPEARS to be moving backwards from our perspective on earth, its influence tends to be more hidden and we generally are urged to look backwards and rectify matters from the past. Astrologer Marina Partridge makes an interesting point – that the 40 days and 40 nights of the Venus retro period […]

Astrotheology: The Sun of God

astrotheology

The fact that our Judeo-Christian mythos is a derivation of earlier religions and legends has moved into the mainstream, and the idea that the divinity of Jesus has parallels with other gods is no longer a shocking idea.  Most of us realize now that Jesus wasn’t born on Christmas day – shepherds don’t watch their flocks in December, even in ancient Judea – and that the Christmas holiday was adopted because it was already being celebrated as the Winter Solstice in the pagan world. The Winter Solstice is celebrated as […]

Jupiterian truths and the Age of Pisces

As we transition into the Aquarian Age, we are leaving the traits of Pisces behind.  We usually think of Pisces as being Neptune-ruled since Neptune is the modern ruler of Pisces and explains the dreamy and imaginative nature of Pisces.  Neptune is  associated with magic and spirituality, but also with delusion and the negation of the Self – all characteristics of the 2000 year domination of the world by Christianity.

Will religion survive the Aquarian Age?

kopimism

In Sweden a new religion called “kopimism” is dedicated to the right to share files freely across the internet.  This religion has been officially recognized by the Swedish government as a lawful religion. Its sacred symbols are ctrl-c and ctrl-v (the PC keyboard shortcuts for copy and paste).  This is not a joke. For the past 2150 years or so we have been in the Age of Pisces (see my earlier article for the delineations between the Great Ages and a discussion of when the Aquarian Age begins.)  The sign […]

May 21st is a bad day for the Rapture

the-rapture

WARNING:  tongue-in-cheek sarcasm ahead! As you may know, the Rapture is scheduled for 6 pm tonight with a bang and a big earthquake, according to Harold Camping, leader of Family Radio Worldwide. “Because the year 2011 AD is exactly 7,000 years after 4990 BC when the flood began, the Bible has given us absolute proof that the year 2011 is the end of the world during the Day of Judgment,” the website of Family Radio says. “Amazingly, May 21, 2011 is the 17th day of the second month of the […]

Saturn in Libra: Testing the boundaries of marriage

sister-wives

Saturn as we know presides over structures that we create in our world and in our society, such as the institutions of government and marriage, which is a formalized relationship that is sanctioned by the State.  Libra is the sign of relationships between things, ideas, and people.  So when Saturn travels through Libra, the limits (Saturn) of relationships (Libra) are tested. My generation has Saturn in Libra, and we were the first generation to question the need for marriage – much to the consternation of our parents, the Pluto in […]

The astrology of Anne Rice’s religion problem

Anne Rice

Gothic author Anne Rice announced last week that she was once again renouncing the Christianity of her youth.  Rice was raised as a Catholic but later described herself as an atheist.  During her early literary career she wrote darkly erotic novels under the name Anne Roquelaure before turning her love of New Orleans into a franchise of vampire novels. Rice (October 4, 1941, New Orleans, time unknown) has a conjunction of Saturn to Chiron in her birthchart.  This is a dramatic combination of planets that often suggests that the native […]
