The Age of Aquarius and The Golden Age are two different events. They simply coincide.
Moving out of the Age of Pisces and into the Age of Aquarius is a physical, observable, astronomical event that will occur in the year 2050.
Moving out of the Dark Age and into The Golden Age is a spiritual event, the beginnings of which may be traced back to February 14, 1962. This transition is mentioned in the Bible: God gave Satan only a short time to tempt mankind. While thousands of years may be a short time in the Mind of God, the Dark Age has been a long, destructive path for Earth and her inhabitants. People have certainly been tempted, and we have all made choices. Soon there will be a separation of the wheat from the chaff.
Jesus, Nostradamas and Edgar Cayce (the foremost prophet of the 20th century) were able to foresee the time of transition that we are currently in. They did NOT foresee the end of the world! They saw that this time of turbulence would result in a Golden Age of the Return of the Angels. Native American Shaman found the same information in visual metaphors, which at the time, they were unable to understand. For example, the time of transition will occur when the Eagle lands on the Moon.
The Mayans viewed astrology as reading the Mind of God. While God's Gift to everyone is freewill choice, some events are literally written in stone. It is our choice as to how we will react.
Like modern-day astronomers / astrologers, the Mayan, Incan, Aztec and Egyptian astronomers / astrologers were able to plot the course of the planets into the future. The big difference being that our ancestors did not have the convenience of computers. Long ago, they foresaw the change from the Dark Age into the Golden Age coming about now because of powerful astrological signs, the most significant being December 21, 2012, when our Sun eclipses the Galactic Rift (the very center of our Galaxy). This conjunction happens once every 26,000 years, and is a forerunner of GREAT change.
There is a misconception that all 9 planets in our solar system will line up on December 21, 2012. This is not true.
The Mayan and Egyptian calendars were carved into large, stone circles. The Mayan calendar consists of a 13-day sacred calendar in the center, which was used by Shaman. Circling the sacred Calendar is a 365-day calendar. The great calendar of 2,000 years is the outer most calendar. This calendar designates the age the Earth is in. There are 12 ages, which correspond to the 12 astrological signs. We are currently in the Age of Pisces, which began in 1 AD. In 2060, we will enter the Age of Aquarius. (I personally feel that Neil Mann's interpretation of dates is accurate, as Jesus is The Avatar for the Piscean Age.)
Below are some interesting and powerful astrological events that the Mayans would have seen, and their consequences:
This same alignment occurred on February 14, 1962. The 1962 configuration of planets was aligned to the South Node, so, hope of The Age of Aquarius was a possibility. On the other hand, the 2009 configuration of planets was aligned to the North Node, signifying the beginning of the physical manifestation of the New Age. In addition, on February 14, 2009, other powerful planets aligned to support the embodiment of The Golden Age.
For example, in the New Era or Golden Age there will be a prevalence of scientific inventions and new forms of knowledge. New discoveries and new ways of thinking will clash with the radical right and radical left. The lost art of intuition will resurface; all secrets and hidden agendas will be made known.
Edgar Cayce predicted that people would be walking into the New Age with whole, healthy, youthful bodies. This is not meant to mean that people will live forever. Rather, they will live longer in healthy bodies. The February 14, 2009, alignment began to bring the physical body into alignment with the emotional and mental bodies. As we have witnessed, it is easier to see people's real agendas and who they really are. Things have already come up to the Light for us to look at. For example, members of congress on both sides of the aisle have engaged in insider trading for a very long time, yet, '60 Minutes' aired a segment on this on November 13, 2011.
Some other interesting astrological events:
On March 1, 2009, the planets again conspired to fulfill the prophecies. In particular, the conjunction of Jupiter and Uranus aspired a noticeable interest in policy and social change, which we are seeing now. When Jupiter and Uranus return to conjunct one another in June 2010, in zero degrees of Aries, this will begin for humanity a new cycle of 84 years. People will be thirsty for the establishment of new rules for communal property, the dedication to defend the rights of humanity and freedom of thought to establish a new planetary conscience. For example, in the Middle East people would rather die than be tethered.
The Aquarian chart of February 14, 2009, reveals an incredible concentration of cosmic influences blending with the energies of Aquarius in the twelfth house. Expansive Jupiter and energetic Mars are aligned with the higher purpose of the North Node. The presence of Chiron, the wounded healer, offers us the opportunity to heal the schisms that have separated us for so long. Neptune empasizes collective humanitarian movements and the co-creation of social justice, and the presence of the radiant Sun enlightens the entire alignment.
The 2011 Spring Equinox and March Full Moon were opportunities to bring to Earth Higher Spiritual energies. By 'coincidence' I taught a Shamanic class in England that weekend. The class and I participated in a ceremony to call the Lasa (Great Seraphim Angels, who stand in the 4 directions and maintain the balance of the 4 elements). They came to assist Tera Mai, and they are still with us.
From November 9 to November 18, 2011, a powerful astrological sign called a 'Cosmic Comet' appeared in the heavens for 9 days. Pluto in Capricorn was in trine with Mars in Virgo, and in trine with Jupiter in Taurus, and Mars and Jupiter were in sextile with the Midheaven in Cancer. This powerful configuration is rare and usually lasts for only a short time, because typically our Moon is involved. (This is because from our perspective on Earth, the Moon moves faster in the sky.) The Divine Presence of God will become more discernible on Earth.
