For the last two years, I have been discussing the fact that humanity has entered the Age of Aquarius. So, I am frequently asked what this means. I heard this question again on a social audio group today. Afterward, my spirit guides led me to share a post regarding the beliefs around AOA. I will begin with my own understanding.
My personal philosophy is based on my belief that astrologically and culturally we have been on the cusp of the AOA since the 60s. However, we needed a certain percentage of humanity to step up their level of consciousness for us to enter the renaissance that is the AOA. That shift, I believe, happened over the last two years.
The AOA is a time of unprecedented change, especially within human consciousness, communication, and technological advancements.
There are two ways to look at the AOA: broad cultural and astrological. Let's break those down.
The AOA is an astrological concept that refers to a period of approximately 2,160 years, according to the precession of the equinoxes, in which the Earth's position in relation to the constellations of the zodiac changes over time.
This period is said to have begun around the 60s, although there is no consensus on the exact date, and is characterized by a shift in the dominant astrological signs from Pisces to Aquarius.
The Age of Aquarius is associated with the idea of a new era of spiritual enlightenment, peace, and harmony, in which humanity will experience a higher level of consciousness and a greater awareness of interconnectedness.
Some people believe that this shift will be accompanied by significant social, political, and economic changes and will usher in a period of global transformation and growth.
AOA in broader cultural terms:
Outside of astrology, the term "Age of Aquarius" is sometimes used in a broader cultural or philosophical context to refer to a perceived shift in societal values and attitudes. This shift is often associated with the countercultural movements of the 1960s and 1970s, which rejected traditional social norms and championed individualism, free expression, and spirituality.
In this sense, the AOA represents a vision of a new era of human consciousness and social organization, characterized by greater freedom, equality, and creativity. Proponents of this vision often emphasize the need for environmental sustainability, social justice, and personal growth, and may draw inspiration from a variety of spiritual or philosophical traditions.
However, the specific values and beliefs associated with the Age of Aquarius can vary widely depending on individual interpretation and cultural context.
