I wowed out at this piece by the genius artist Ira Carter & emailed him to ask for his statement on it:
I made this piece as a statement of disappointment, but also, hopefully, a
call to arms. I grew up in a time when many placed their hope in the coming
Age of Aquarius. Now, not only do I not have a jet pack or flying car, but
the world seems mired in an endless stream of war, terrorism, mass murder,
and insanity, rather than the promised new age of enlightenment. I am sad
and disappointed, but also hopeful that we as a species can dream bigger
dreams and access our spiritual core that reaffirms that we are made in
God’s image, not that of something evil.
Carter is, he says, “a typical Leo. Big, loud, insistent that the focus be on him.”
So occasionally I get emails asking “when is the Age of Aquarius?” Honestly, it’s not part of my consciousness. I think in terms of the grand Pluto, Neptune & Uranus cycles. Saturn too. You can set your life watch by seven year cycles (Saturn & Uranus) & when Pluto or Neptune rock up to an important point in your chart, you know it.
Even astrologers who do abide by the “astrological ages” theory disagree as to when it starts/started. See the Wiki for more.
Other than the baby boomer/Pluto in Leo peeps musical concept, what does the Age of Aqua mean to you? A manipulative Bad Guru type once told me that the Age of Pisces (a.k.a. of Jesus Christ) was ending and that the Age of Aquarius would be when the “reincarnate Atlanteans took power.” Something like that. I think his slimy aura is the reason i never looked into it all too much. There is always end of days/golden new era beginning soon mythology swirling about.
What do you think??
