For many a year now, I have studied astrology, ages and their astrological associations, renaissances, and religious epochs...

First renaissances,

Renaissances happen every sixty years and have happened rather frequently in recent years...

1480's - The Italian Renaissance
1540's - The Age of Exploration
1600's - The English Renaissance
1660's - The Scientific Revolution
1720's - The Age of Enlightenment
1780's - The American Revolution
1840's - Transcendentalist Movement
1900's - Fin de Siecle (End of Cycle)
1960's - The Psychedelic Sixties
2020's - The Awakening <---The next decade...
2080's - The Diaspora

Now on to the ages and their zodiacs...

-Leo: 10,990-8,823 BC - Old Stone Age/Ice Age
-Cancer: 8,823-6,656 BC - New Stone Age (Farming)
-Gemini: 6,656-4,489 BC - Copper Age (City Building)
-Taurus: 4,489-2,322 BC - Bronze Age/Golden Age (Cattle)
-Aries: 2,322-155 BC - Iron Age/Age of Heroes (Classical)
-Pisces: 155 BC-2012 AD - Roman/Christian Era (Dark Ages 450-1450)
-Aquarius: 2012-4179 AD - Space Age: Galactic Diaspora

A new age is dawning...

While I do not believe the doom and gloom stories about the end of the earth on December 21st, 2012...one things is certain...A new age is coming. I find it curious that the Mayan and Chinese calendars end in 2012. The Mayan calendar in particular completes its 13 Bak'tun cycles and the age we live in now will end. In 2012 we will enter the Age of Aquarius. Now, the hippies of the 1960's believed that they were living in that age. With the Age of Aquarius about to begin and a coming global "Awakening" or renaissance in the 2020's I'm beginning to wonder...could this transition into a new age spark a new way of life similar to what happened with the hippies? Will we see an explosion of music, arts, and culture? Time will tell but for now be prepared...

The Age of Aquarius is coming...

nice change but with consequences

True the world is not going to end but mother earth is going to revolt. She's been used and abused for too long now. Notice the increase in earthquakes lately? The weather is changing and mother earth is starting to warn us that she's had enough. Yes there is a change coming but it isn't just going to be sociologically. It's also going to be geographically too.

All along ...

Throughout history cycles of bad weather has been with us. It's just media blitz. Just like the myth of global warming. Maybe we'll get lucky and something will go right, like the discovery of a perpetual power source. Remember the pet rock? Everyone could have a magnetic pet moon rock.

2012 predictions

What is or may be in store for earth and it's inhabitants is not known by humankind, which should be incentive to cleanup ones house and lifestyle to be prepared for whatever may be in God's plan.

I was born in 1979 and always felt I missed the greatest period of transformation of society. The ability to revolt from main stream American greed and go back to the basics is romantically enticing. I don't fit well into modern day society because I have a hard time seeing pain and suffering. The 60's and 70's had meaning in which I have always related. I see the meaning in modern day music (some of it) but " classic rock" tickles my brain and senses in a way like no other. I also have thought the end of the world is concieved wrongly. World as we knew it will end and love and kindness will conquer the open minded. I have been waiting for this since I was in pampers. No longer will I be the "hippie" or the "tree hugger" but just another brother or sister. Your post inspires me. Thank u. Maybe if enough of us believe it then it will be true. As the baby boomers get older I fear I will be left on this planet alone with only my kids and I barefoot listening to music written and performed with passion- real passion. I hope and prey the hippies raised their kids with history embedded in their hearts. I cant keep up with the Jones's. I CAN'T STAND THE JONSE'S!! May we all rise above the corporate grips of hypnosis and remember Mc Donald's and Nike were someones dream for MONEY. NOT WORLD CHANGE OR THE LOVE OF HUMANITY. may we all get our heads out of our a$$ and take the knife out of our brother's back.
