Care to share some knowledge about this? I’ve been searching the internet. All I’m finding is the age of Pisces was about Monotheism, Jesus, deception and illusion. I’m finding mixed ideas for the age of Aquarius. Some believe we are becoming more spiritual less religious, others believe we are moving more toward Christ. Some believe this is the return of Christ. This transition is mentioned in the Christian Bible.
‘And then the man who bears the pitcher will walk forth across an arc of heaven; the sign and signet of the Son of Man will stand forth in the eastern sky. The wise will then lift up their heads and know that the redemption of the earth is near.’” (Aquarian Gospel 157: 29, 30.)
…But what does that even mean? There is also discussion about a balance of masculine and feminine during this age? A more positive energy? More love? What do you think about all this? What have you heard, or what do you believe will take place during this transition? Any good websites to refer me to?
@iambrian, Well! I once read about this transition of age of Pisces to Aquarius. I’m not sure what astrology says about this but I would like to share what I know about this, this might be based upon few Islamic viewpoints since I am a muslim.
So, we muslims believe that this age (which is already upon us or may be it is still in the shifting process) is showing the signs of an age before the end of days. In this age/era/time we believe that Jesus Christ (or as muslims call him Prophet Eesa may peace be upon him) will be born again. He (alongwith another spiritual & religious figure Imam Mehdi) will work for the cleansing of this planet. From cleansing I mean protecting the innocent & dealing with the oppressors. This will probably be the conclusive action from Jesus Christ & he’ll restore peace & tranquillity on the planet (which you are referring to as ‘age of love & positive energy’.
A shift from Pisces to Aquarius would be a positive one. If you connect the zodiac with Taoism, every other sign is positive/yang and the ones in between are negative/yin. Pisces would be a negative sign and Aquarius a positive. Aquarius represents thriving conditions for humanity: logic, patience, communication, humanitarianism.
“Traditionally, Aquarius is associated with electricity, computers, flight, democracy, freedom, humanitarianism, idealists, modernization, astrology, nervous disorders, rebellion, nonconformity, philanthropy, veracity, perseverance, humanity, and irresolution” (Wikipedia).
Pisces is very much opposite to Aquarius: much more unstable and ruled by conformity and emotions.
I personally love astrology, so that was my basic knowledge. Granted, if you want to know, I’d start here because it lays out the basics easily: http://www.mollysastrology.com/astrology-tutorials
Then I’d check this place out because it deals with Aquarius/Pisces specifically: http://www.astrology-numerology.com/ages.html
After that, you’re on your own because every book and website will tell you something different about the cycle.
@blankey, What is this New Sun you speak of? Yeah I assume that he has become a metaphor. Is that what people believe when they say he is returning? They actually mean all the goodness and his good teachings and ideals shall return to people. Do you agree?
I personally am a non-denominational monotheist (to an extent) and I love hearing what you have to say about the islamic view on this- I find the teachings of the Qur’an to have a lot of merit and truth to share.
As for @iambrian, although i have no expertise in this matter I like the suggestion- I think it is likely a collective change of thought in the people and challenging of the preexisting ideals- even if it is not literally people become Christians- I do think there may be a big mindset shift towards the preaching of LOVE and a turn towards a more active rather than passive view of spirituality (with this I mean individuals seeking truth through experience rather than learning from those of authority/institutions).
I’d be interested to hear your thoughts- as this is merely my quite naive and uninformed opinion :)
If one looks up that bible quote in the old testament (often times a more literally accurate interpretation of the true acts of Christ) you will see when the disciples ask Jesus, “How long will you be with us for?” Jesus answers, “I will be with you until the end of the Eon.” when translated today from the time of use, Eon means Age. The new testament changes the word Eon in that sentence to World, hence this was man muddying the waters of the original answer i.e. end of eon, and end of world are completely different. Not just this but later Jesus says, “You will come to a man bearing a pitcher of water, follow him into his house.” When we decipher this statement by its symbolism it all becomes quite clear….. The man with the pitcher of water is non other than Aquarius the water bearer (symbol for the age of Aquarius) and the “House” you will be following him into will be yes, the house or, age of Aquarius. In a nutshell Jesus was saying, Christianity is good for one age, the age of Pisces, of which when Pisces ends you should be looking for the next great prophet who shall help lead you into the next 2150 year long age of Aquarius. At its most basic level it means this: There IS A GOD AMONGST US! And that this is a MOST exciting time to be alive. :) Now, let me share a little about what to expect in this new age we are in.
The. “Age of Truth” is upon us; a truly new chapter in honesty and courage. And the Dallas Cowboys sign Michael Sam; college All-American and the South-Eastern conference defensive player of the year, and, the 1st NFL player to come out as gay. This story re-enforces what I’ve shared about what to look forward to in this new age we’ve entered; the AGE OF AQUARIUS. Let me offer a little more insight into where this is all heading.
in the not so distant future Not a soul shall be capable of avoiding the truth, and those who continue to try and avoid the truth, shall struggle then perish. Those with the greatest amount of honesty and the courage to come forth in all things true, shall reap the fruitful benefits of this new age. This past age was about I, I ,I, Me, Me ,Me, mine, mine, mine. And when this new age comes to a close, it shall be known as an age of we, we, we, us, us, us, ours, our, ours. More and more will follow the calling to service, where many shall find extreme joy in being of service to fellow human beings. Let the service in you be answered by your service to others, there simply is no better gift to give. These changes to a more truer state will come on at a more rapid rate as time passes so expect imbalance, challenges, set backs and growth.
The veil is lifting. Nothing will remain hidden. This new age is an age of breaking down longtime old conditioned behaviors and attitudes, and making way for a pure and truer path to the light. Older conditioned attitudes will be replaced by newer, higher levels of being, and the conditioned behaviors we have today shall be shed forever. This new path of light will be about truth and love. You can see the truth coming out everywhere, in 3rd world countries, in the NFL, on the news, magazines, everywhere. So Engage in your truth and flow within it. Try to string along a good day worth of nothing but truth and you will begin to understand the magic that comes with the truth. Do you know what’s so beautiful about the truth? The truth need not be premeditated, planned, or produced…. it is perfect as it is :) Embrace the truth and flow within its timeless embrace.
Love & Light
I think the fundamental concept of the age of Aquarius is that it is a period of heightened human consciousness – an ability to look beyond materialistic scientific dogma as well as rigid religious dogma to a view of reality where greater possibility exists for human fulfillment.
Therefore, the development of greater mental abilities, the ability for humanity to shape reality itself, a synthesis of primitive scientific and religious thinking into what you might call actualized magic.
I agree Ray, “actualized magik” i likey! it reminds me of that little something called manifest destiny. The old Age of Pisces was dominated by machines and hierarchies, this new Aquarian Age is ruled by information, awareness, and energy. Not just this but as Ray said, we will take things into our own hands and to a much higher level. This is how it begins….. do you recall a thing called free will? Unless you are incarcerated or in the military you have complete free will of choice; you can choose. It is by this very empowerment that in fact you chose everything in your life for the past 24 hours, in fact you have chosen everything for the past week, month, year….. think about it. You must remember this fact, that your free will of choice is the architect of your reality. It is through your choices that you create your reality and experience. Empower yourself with this nearly forgotten freedom we all currently still have. There will also be forces at the highest level of deception that have been and will continue to be working hard to help you forget about your free will. Guard your free will with thine life, and choose most wisely!
