This morning here in San Francisco, a New Age dawned, at least for me it did, and I want to invite you all to join me in marking the end of an age together. For the first time since 1962, we have six planets all in the same part of the sky that astrologers call Aquarius. It is a part of the sky famous for its chilled-out winter perspective on things, it’s air sign progressive clarity and its eccentric authenticity.
We are at the yearly Aquarius New Moon, and the end of the lunar Aquarian year. It is the peak of winter, and the time when you first dare to dream of spring. It is not just the Moon and the Sun in the sign of Aquarius, however, it is Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, and Saturn as well. All of the visible planets besides Mars are within one small slice of the sky, all within 16 degrees of each other, and it represents an extremely rare opportunity for meditation and intention setting.
