Carpe Diem #170, Aquarius (The Waterbearer) (Zodiac 11)

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Almost ready with our journey along the Zodiac. Today we have Aquarius. As you maybe know, last year was, according to the Mayan Calendar, the end of the world on December 21th. All what was happening was nothing. But what had happened than?
On that date the Earth entered the Center of the Milky Way, our solar system, and that brought the Earth into the era of Aquarius. This era stands for Spiritual Growth and that's what happened. We have entered a new era of consciousness. In the coming years we will see that our common consciousness will grow and that the spirituality will grow and that will bring (I hope) new peace on Earth.

Aquarius (The Waterbearer)  January 21th - February 19th

The first thing which came in mind was a song from the Musical 'Hair'. It;s a great song and I love to share that here with you, my dear friends.

What is astrology say about Aquarius? Let's look at that.

They are usually high-strung, and their nerves are generally overwrought. This people often lose control and then say or do things that they bitterly regret later.They are generally very active for the public good, and often give all they have to relieve the distress of others. 
They are good thinkers, and are very successful when it comes to debate and argument, and difficult to convince. 
They are excellent in business and finance when they apply their minds to such things, but usually they are more successful for others, and make more money for other people than for themselves. Such people are a seekers of knowledge, rational, open-minded, gifted with breadth of vision. 
If people born in this sign manage overcame their sensitiveness and developed their will-power, there is no position they would not be able to attain. They are usually successful in some large sphere of action, where they can feel their responsibilities for others. As an idealist AQUARIANS would like to see that everybody is happy and their ambition is to do something important and meaningful. 
They take a great interest in public meetings, gatherings of people, and public ceremonies. In spite of the fact that such people love theatres and concerts, and like to be where crowds of people congregate, they often feel lonely. 
As a lovers these people are full of surprises. They simply cannot be happy or fulfilled unless they are free to do as they like. No matter how deeply in love these people may be, they are never willing to sacrifice their autonomy, but they always put honesty ahead of romance. 
In general, it is not true that all people who were born in this time are evil people. In fact, those with the Sun in Aquarius are sometimes «one set against many» against great odds or against an institution; for light are at enmity with darkness in the same way that lions are at enmity with hyenas.

  1. I always think of the musical Hair with this one, so it's fun that you posted the video. This one was tricky to write.

  2. At least in the US, there seems to have definitely been a shift in consciousness on a number of issues. Interesting it coincided with December 21!

  3. Oops, linked in Capricorn under Aquarius, cosmic mixup

  6. I'm making progress...this was a fun one having lived thru the "Age of Hair" and all the talk of how that generation was going to the dogs... no values, no modesty and no work ethics...I think that has been proven to be not true. Thank you for an interesting lesson.
