The coming era of Aquarius will be an era of knowledge, but not the dry, intellectual knowledge we have everyday with people who are educated, even erudite, but not alive. The symbol of Aquarius is an image of wisdom: an old man holding a pitcher from which he pours the waters of life. The knowledge of Aquarius is the knowledge that brings life, that awakens and stirs us to life. People may know all about germs and microbes, they may know about the stars and the planets, but they don’t know how to live..
The water pouring from the old man’s pitcher symbolizes the fact that we need to let the water flow in order to make everything within and around us grow and flourish. water brings life, but people forget that, they are dry and thirsty, What they need above all in their lives is living water, the water of life. That is why, even though Aquarius is the symbol of knowledge, it is not linked to the brain, but to the solar plexus, which alone can make the living water flow inside. The words of the Gospel, ” Out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water…” predict the coming of Aquarius, but in a form that nobody at the time could understand…..
Astrologers and occultists have been talking for years about the coming Age of Aquarius. Actually, we must wait another two hundred years for the vernal point to enter the constellation of Aquarius, but its influence can already be felt, as on a March day when it is still Winter but the sun, the birds and the flowers make you feel the breath of spring, its aura and emanations. The age of Aquarius is responsible for all the discoveries that have been made in the field of space and the atom. Aquarius is an air sign, and ever since the currents of Aquarius began to agitate, science has been discovering how to use air and circulate it. During the era of Pisces, the field of discovery was water: navigation. With Aquarius we enter the realm of air: telecommunications, telephone, television planes, satellites, rockets, etc. The fact that there are so many accidents in the air proves that we are not aware of the similarity between air and water. There are currents, waves and perturbations in the air, exactly as there are in water. Even though we are not really in the Age of Aquarius, there are already many changes. Aquarius comes under the influence of Saturn and Uranus: Saturn, the persecutor, the destroyer, and Uranus, the provoker of accidents and explosions. All forms of explosions come under the sign of Uranus. Uranus means a break with the past, this time Uranus will break away entirely and go in a new direction, it will introduce the idea of universality. Aquarius is represented by an ancient pouring water out of an urn, the living water of the new teaching.
All of you who have several planets in the sign of Aquarius are well prepared , you will take advantage of the new waves that come with this constellation, you are the innovators, the inventors. Aquarius is also responsible for discoveries in the psychic. esoteric realm, especially the idea of collectivity, of brotherhood.The entire world will now feel obliged to study and work on this idea of brotherhood and universality. Universality means being unattached, or not attached to just one or two people, a wife and children, no, being free to unite with everyone, all together in the ocean of life, love, beauty and joy.
The era of Pisces was the era of Christianity, its characteristics correspond with the sign of the Fish, the sign of abnegation and sacrifice. before the era of Pisces, came the era of Aries, the Ram. with the religion of Moses, and before that was the era of Taurus and the Egyptian and Babylonian religions. Aquarius will be the new age, the new life. First there will be great upheavals, turmoil and change of all kind and afterwards…it will be the golden age of peace and brotherhood. Aquarius will bring the golden age.
