The “Age of the Spring Equinox in Aquarius”

The “Age of the Spring Equinox in Aquarius” – when will it begin?  The simple answer is: when the position of the spring equinox moves from Pisces into Aquarius between 2150 and 2200 AD. The rest is mystification about the meaning of the sign of Aquarius.

And the esoteric industries have been commercializing the topic of the spring equinox in Aquarius as an “Age of Aquarius” over a 100 years or so.

Of course the “Age of Aquarius” will not begin when the Moon is in the 7th house which happens everyday..That was just refering to that euphorical moment when the curtains are lifted and the stage is set for the musical show to begin. And no – the conjunction of Jupiter with Mars – called the lucky moment für starting a war or attacking your neighbour – has nothing to do with that. Just imagine the hype about the rise of humanity into the 5th Dimension in 2012 while the title of that dimension was copied from a 60ies band that made the song popular…..- the Age of Aquarius hype was exchanged for the band name. 🙂 . But yes my 6 planets in Aquarius used to be gebauchpinselt….

I`m proposing to use the chart for the Grand Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn on 21 Dec 2159 which will initialize the series of great conjunctions in water signs and effectively represent a water mutation as a useful initial chart for the “Age of the Spring Equinox in Aquarius”.

Every new Great Conjunctions falls in a trine to the position of it`s preceding conjunctions. Great Conjunctions – Conjunctions of Jupiter with Saturn occur in the signs of the same element during average periods of 180 years. The first conjunction that takes place in a new element is called a mutation.

This method of divsions and interpretation of periods in history goes back to the great persian astrologer Abu Maʿshar.

The last such event was on 31.12.1980, 21:23 UT when the great conjunction occured in air sign Libra showing an air mutation at the time of beginning of the “the digital age” which will last until the water mutation of the year 2159.

For more exact data esp. about the revision of older data e.g. about the role of the Earth Mutation of 1802 (not 1842 !!!) through new calculations by Astrodienst and other details compare Rüdiger Plantiko`s fine article and data given on the mutational great conjunctions of the last 1200 years.

A useful chart for the period at the beginning of the “Age of the spring equinox in Aquarius”

I`m not saying the “Age of the Spring Equinox in Aquarius” will begin on that day. What I`m saying is that this chart falls into the period (2150 -.2200) in which the spring equinox for 30° signs – which we use in astrology – is about to shift from 0°Pisces onto 29°Aquarius . And the method of the mutational great conjunctions is a sublime method for measuring out the 12 subdivisional phases within a 2150 years period needed by the spring equinox to move through one sign.

If you look at the chart you will find that Scorpio the sign of the defense system is the main topic – as the conjunction will fall in that sign. The Sun at 28°Sagittarius will be right between the position of the Galactic Center and the degree of the Winter Solstice.
