This Saturday could be very significant

hair-musicalApparently this Saturday the moon is in the seventh house, and Jupiter is aligned with Mars.

Remember that old song from “Hair”?

When the moon is in the seventh house

And Jupiter aligns with Mars

Then Peace will guide the planet

And Love will steer the stars

This is the dawning of the age of Aquarius………..

For those familiar with astrology, here is a note I received, followed by a comment from Druid astrologer Sarah Fuhro, and the chart she has drawn up. Tomorrow is the 21st anniversary of the re-formation of the Order of Bards Ovates & Druids, which was founded in 1964.

Dear friend,
In mid February a rare astrological concentration brings together a number of planets together with the North Node – denoting higher purpose – in Aquarius that energizes and inspires the possibility for transcendental breakthrough in some perhaps seemingly intransigent situations.
We measure our global sense of both space (latitude and longitude) and time (universal time – UT or GMT) from the prime meridian located at Greenwich, England. So we can perceive the collective influence of this momentous astrological event by looking at the alignment from this globally centered perspective. When we do something extraordinary and exquisite emerges. At dawn on 14th February the day dedicated to St Valentine, the patron saint of Love, the Moon in Libra enters the seventh house of relationships. And Jupiter and Mars are aligned in Aquarius in the twelfth house of spiritual transformation.
Forty years ago, the intuitive words of a song called Aquarius [from The Musical Hair quoted above], brought the dawning of the new age into our collective awareness. At dawn on 14th February the Cosmos actually embodies this perfect alignment to support our collective manifestation of love and peace and dawning of the Age of Aquarius.
The Aquarian chart of 14th February 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 schismsthat have separated us for so long. Neptune emphasizes collective humanitarian movements and the co-creation of social justice. And the presence of the radiant Sun enlightens the entire alignment.
Mercury also in the twelfth house but just beyond the cusp in Capricorn, allies with transformational Pluto to communicate and anchor the Shift throughout our global structures and institutions. The Moon in Libra in the seventh house emphasizes harmonious real relationships. Venus in Aries in the first house energizes and empowers dynamic co-creativity.
And whilst Saturn the great task master in opposition to Uranus the unexpected awakener is suggesting an ongoing confrontation as the dregs of the unsustainable old paradigm reluctantly give way to the untested hope of the new, their placements in Virgo and Pisces brings practical altruism and visionary inspiration to the transition.
At 7.25am on 14th February and for the 18 minutes of the alignment, I invite you, in the universal heart, to add your own intention for
love and peace and to co-create the dawning of the Age of Aquarius to that of the Cosmos. In whatever way feels appropriate for you, you may choose to align with7.25am (UT) or 7.25am local time energizing a wave of intention that will surge around the Earth.
Please feel free to circulate the Aquarian chart and its cosmic invitation to birth the Age of Aquarius.
With love, joy and gratitude in the universal heart,
Jude

Our Druid astrologer Sarah, gives us an extra 25 minutes in bed tomorrow morning and adds a chart I’ve pasted in below. Sarah writes: ‘This is a wonderful chart, but I think the time should be adjusted to 7:50 am. That would give us a firm 7th house Moon.   And it would mean the co rulers of Aquarius who are in opposition at this time would be right on the Asc/Dec line. Also Venus would be in the first house. Since there is no final word on when the Age of Aquarius begins, let’s start it on Valentine’s Day at 7:50 am  2009.  It’s a nice anniversary for the Order as well!”

  1. Hippy 😉

  2. I know have a certain song buzzing round my head. Ta, Philip 😉 😀

  3. “Now you may find it inconceivable or at the very least a bit unlikely that the relative position of the planets and the stars could have a special deep significance or meaning that exclusively applies to only you, but let me give you my assurance that these forecasts and predictions are all based on solid, scientific, documented evidence, so you would have to be some kind of moron not to realize that every single one of them is absolutely true.

    Cheers, and a very happy anniversary to the Order!

  4. ALL WE NEED IS LOVE
    LOVE IS ALL WE NEED

  5. Just as a different opinion about this astrological event:

  6. I love that song! But I didn’t know where it came from! You learn something everyday – Happy Anniversary! XX

  7. Hi Endovelicon – just read the blog you referred to. Whoops! Not being an astrologer this bears out the way I have decided to relate to astrology, which is whenever I hear anything positive in astro-speak I think ‘Wonderful! May it be so!’ When I hear something negative I think ‘Oh this astrology – we don’t even know if it works’ and I take it with a pinch of the sceptic’s salt. A sort of win/win approach, which I know evades the real issue of critically evaluating any astro-diagnosis, but in the absence of time to delve deeply into it seems to be the best approach, which positively engages the two powerful (almost magical) psychological processes of the placebo effect and the mechanism of denial!

  8. Oops! Missed it – still snoozingzzzZZZ I’m ashamed to admit. I have that song buzzing in my head now too – thanks! (I can actually hear Laurie whistling it in the bathroom!! Aarrgh! What have you done?!). Incidently, Laurie always used to think the lyrics were…’when Jupiter collides with Mars’! Which might have a slightly more catastrophic affect than the original intention.

    Happy Anniversary OBOD!! :0)

  9. To a great extent, I’m with Mike Rock – There’s always more than one way to read any chart. But I’m definitely wth Sarah’s preference for the later time. Trying to squash the Moon into the 7th house at dawn at Greenwich takes a fair sleight-of-hand:-)
