It seems that I have been waiting for the Age of Aquarius to arrive for almost my entire life!
As a child, I listened endlessly to the soundtrack of the Broadway play “Hair” and its famous song “Aquaurius.” I thought that then that the age had arrived, but as I grew older I began to think that sadly, it had all been a pipe dream.
Apparently, my long and patient wait for the Age of Aquarius is paying off. In this article https://www.wellandgood.com/what-is-age-aquarius/ the author notes that:
“An astrological “age” shifts about every 2,150 years, when the Earth’s rotation moves into a new zodiac sign around the spring equinox. There is some debate about when the Age of Pisces ends and the true Age of Aquarius begins, but considering the massive transits that happened in 2020, a common hypothesis is that we entered it in the beginning of 2021.
The Age of Aquarius follows the progressive, forward-thinking, “we versus I” mentality of visionary, rebellious, innovative, and eccentric Aquarians. It focuses on humanitarian pursuits of valuing each person’s individuality, holding and taking care of each other as a unit, and also disrupting the system. As Adama Sesay, astrologer and creator of Lilith Astrology, points out, there will be a major shift in power dynamics in this era. “For eons the power has rested in traditional, oppressive hierarchical structures, and their beliefs dictated our reality,” says Sesay. “[In the Age of Aquarius,] the power is turning over to the individual, and giving the freedom for you to choose your own reality based on what aligns with your soul.”
You can read more in the article, but here is a summary of what 5 astrologists quoted say we can expect in 2021 from the Age of Aquarius.
1. Three Mercury retrograde cycles in air signs. Mercury will retrograde in all the air signs, meaning quick-witted Gemini, judicious Libra, and, yes, Aquarius. There are three retrogrades in 2021: from January 20 to 30, May 29 to June 22, and September 27 to October 18. These times might have an interesting impact on communication, and may even prove to be an opportunity to learn how to understand one another better.
2. Emphasis on Technology. The Age of Aquarius presents an opportunity to be more connected than ever through digital means, but it’ll be interesting to see how people will interact post-pandemic. Our pitfall could be becoming even more disengaged with the world around us.
3. Economic Disruption. Saturn in Aquarius square Uranus in Taurus may mean a few pain points for the year ahead, given that this transit has historically meant economic strife.
4. Community Care. The beginning of the Age of Aquarius in 2021 will only usher in the beginning of the widespread healing that’s still to come. We might see the rise of more social programs and a bigger emphasis on taking care of one another. Wellness for all is the very spirit of the Age of Aquarius, and that means even with dark days still ahead, there’s something truly magnificent on the horizon.
