The Precession of the Equinoxes and The Age of Aquarius

According to many sources, we are in the Age of Aquarius, though many argue over dates and calendars.

On the 21st of December 2012, the winter solstice precesses through the Milky Way, which was of great mythological importance to the Mayans.

This will manifest as a  turning point in human consciousness.

Balance will be restored as we awaken to a new level of understanding.

Much of this new found consciousness will be manifested through the return of  feminine energies.

War has been a constant feature in every generation and the value of the female has been much maligned and desecrated by all the institutions of power.

The old Age of Pisces is closing down, the frequency of that age is taken over by the higher frequency of Aquarius and thus the higher consciousness.

All is change…

Humans have celebrated the equinoxes since the beginning of time and many rituals were designed around them.

They signal the beginning of each of Earth’s four seasons.

All of this was integrated into religion.

For example, the Christian hierarchy included all the ancient celebrations,  changing the name and meaning.

Have you ever wondered why Christmas and Easter are celebrated so close to the Winter and Vernal (Spring) Equinox?

There is a tangible change happening, being experienced by many people I speak with.

Something is influencing how many see the world, themselves and each other.

There is something stirring…

The Age of Aquarius.



  1. Collette,
    I see and hear the change every day. More and more people are going back to the simplier life. Sharing ideas. growing their own food and making their own clothes. Spinning, canning and sewing are on the rise. I am looking forward to the age of Aquarius, it brings hope for all peoples.
    Thanks for another thought provoking blog

    I agree…even with all that is happening in the world today, there is hope in the air and a calm optimism.

  2. I can feel a change in myself toward preferring peace over conflict. Though I still speak my mind, I don’t waste energy arguing with people. Amazingly, I much more often find myself agreeing, if only in part, with people, once I stop talking at them.
    We have more in common with people than apart from them.
