Age of Aquarius

April 14, 2000

New Moons are great for new beginnings. Grand Conjunctions bring even better indications. Around the end of April, several planets begin gathering for the Grand Conjunction aka the Grand Confluence, in Taurus during May 3-5. Remember that 60's song -- "Age of Aquarius"? Well, this is it people! This is "When the Moon IS in the Seventh House, and Jupiter aligns with Mars" I suppose this IS the OFFICIAL dawning of the Age of Aquarius

By the way, Jupiter and Mars will not link again until February 2036. According to Susan Miller of Astrology Zone, the last time "an exceedingly rare line up of seven planets" occurred was on February 4, 1962 with the planets in Aquarius.

Aquarius

When the moon is in the Seventh House
and Jupiter aligns with Mars
Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars

This is the dawning of the age of Aquarius
The age of Aquarius
Aquarius! Aquarius!

Harmony and understanding
Sympathy and trust abounding
No more falsehoods or derisions
Golden living dreams of visions
Mystic crystal revelation
And the mind's true liberation
Aquarius! Aquarius!

When the moon is in the Seventh House
and Jupiter aligns with Mars
Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars

This is the dawning of the age of Aquarius
The age of Aquarius
Aquarius! Aquarius!

As our hearts go beating through the night
We dance unto the dawn of day
To be the bearers of the water
Our light will lead the way

We are the spirit of the age of Aquarius
The age of Aquarius
Aquarius! Aquarius!

Harmony and understanding
Sympathy and trust abounding
Angelic illumination
Rising fiery constellation
Travelling our starry courses
Guided by the cosmic forces
Oh, care for us; Aquarius
