You know how sometimes you have to let things fall apart entirely before you can start over? That has essentially been the energy of this pandemic-filled year, which is now drawing to a conclusion and ushering in the transformational Age of Aquarius as we leave behind the Age of Pisces. (Yes, the Age of Aquarius, which is referenced in the song “the dawning of the” from the musical Hair.) But what exactly is the Age of Aquarius?
Every 2,150 years, as the Earth rotates into a new zodiac sign around the spring equinox, an astrological “age” changes.
There is some disagreement over when the Age of Pisces comes to an end and the genuine Age of Aquarius begins, but given the significant transits that occurred in 2020, the general consensus is that we will enter at the start of 2021. Consider the fact that seven celestial bodies will enter Aquarius in February 2021, and Jupiter and Saturn will form the Great Conjunction on the approaching winter solstice (December 21, 2020). Let’s just say it’s been a wild journey during the Age of Pisces.
According to transformative astrologer Corina Crysler, “The Era of Pisces shaped many belief systems, but now it’s time to combine our practices into a way of life that keeps us linked, not divided, to construct a foundation that may move us into a new age.” “Pluto and Uranus did much of the heavy lifting this year, tearing down any constructions based on antiquated customs. Many of Saturn’s structures were made visible by Pluto for our individual development. However, a number of transits will nudge us in the direction of the Aquarian influence.
