The beginning of a New Age
Those who remember the great awakening of 1962, when the Aquarian Age began, should read this: http://planetwavesweekly.com/dadatemp/373155372.html
Starting with a solar eclipse February 1962 in Aquarius, a grouping of planets in that sign called a stellium presaged the huge changes that were to follow: the assassinations, protests and riots, the space age leading to man on the moon, civil rights and anti-war movements, the Beatles landing in America, the Woodstock Generation, the glorious music and film, and, the global awareness of how we are all connected to each other, the theme of Aquarius, the water bearer.
And that influence is still there, yet here we are again, with another Age upon us. The Age of Taurus began with the great solar eclipse of August 1999, then a stellium of seven planets in Taurus, the bull, including Jupiter-Saturn conjunctions in 2000 and these energies are once again, bringing about changes within us.
Astrologers don't like to predict what will happen, because so much depends on our acceptance of change and the actions we undertake.
But as a spiritual teacher, I have no problem saying what cycle of change we are in, and what we must do.
First read this: http://thezodiac.com/forecasting/taurus2000.htm
"The Unknown Visitors: The ancient Roman poet, Ovid, informs us that once upon a time... the gods were quite concerned that they were being ignored. So Jupiter (the chief ruling god of thunder) and Mercury (the messenger god) visited Earth disguised as poor, beggarly travelers. All the many people who refused Jupiter and Mercury shelter were drowned in a great flood and thus repaid for their godlessness. Conversely, those who openly welcomed the unknown visitors into their home were then honored with the fulfillment of their greatest desires and hopes"
Saturn is the force that tells us where we must change, and Jupiter, the force that gives us the strength to make those changes, and the rewards that come with that.
Taurus is very closely connected with emotional foundations and financial resources. It is the sign of nature, so Taureans have a very strong connection with the earth. And it is a sign of power, which, if wrongly used, can turn upon itself. Taureans are the sweetest beings, but stubborn, and can be stuck in karmic patterns. And, they are the sign of the warrior, who has a choice between good and evil, and following one's path. Arjuna, the spiritual warrior who must choose between the material and the spiritual, is that archetype.
And it is amazing to me that so many who once used to be my closest friends and disciples are now back as coincidentally, Tauruses who must fight that battle between materialism and spirituality, and with so much karmic baggage, and at this crucial time in Earth's history.
But it is also the final battle we must all fight if we are to survive.
So many of us don't know who we are or how to accomplish our purpose in life. I was blessed in knowing, and have worked all my life in helping others do the same. I detailed in my first blog article "Who is this man?" (actually written from September 1999 on) and subsequent articles http://manfromatlan.blogspot.com/2007/12/who-is-this-man-1999-from-skies-will.html all the many events that have taken place and would take place.
The years from 2000 on continued with global warming, weather changes, financial disasters, war, earthquakes, floods and tsunamis, with incalculable human suffering. It pains me that I saw all these things happening, yet people missed what I tried to say to them since I wrote my second book in 1977. And now, once again, I say, there are great changes yet to come.
It saddens me to see the wars that never can be resolved, continue, the poverty side by side with the impervious rich, and the messages clearly stated, yet not listened to.
I was in Los Angeles for the 1994 earthquake, and New York prior to the events of 9/11, and each time I said: if people could not choose the spiritual path one day they would lose everything. I was in Sri Lanka, India and Pakistan and said the same thing, and disasters have taken place to this day. I was in the U.K. many times till finally, the great floods of 2007. I said the same to Muslims as I did to Jews, and now that prophecy is coming true.
The Age of Taurus is where we must determine where we got off our path, and work to find our way back to it.
Yes, these Ages are signs of the cycles we go through, and there are of course many Ages of varying length. But if you listen carefully to the ebb and flow of these cycles, you know that they are all connected to each other. And the Age of Taurus from 2000 is still connected to the Age of Aquarius from 1962. This is how:
The 1962 solar eclipse in Aquarius was exactly opposite to the 1999 solar eclipse in Leo which started the Age of Taurus. That stellium in Aquarius was square, or 90 degrees away from another stellium in Taurus then, and oppositions and squares signify stress in those areas.
And the 1962 Taurus stellium was exactly in the same position as this 2000 Age of Taurus. And finally, the new moon of August 10, 2010, is once again, back where it was on August 11, 1999.
This is the meaning of the Age. Because we have lost our way, changes are coming. Welcome those changes to your home, and you will be helped to accomplish your greatest desires and hopes. And just as I find that another child will be born in the sign of Aquarius to one dear to me, I have already chosen this picture to symbolize my message: A bull, led by a child, rising from a flood, and reaching for the stars.
