These little water bearers are about to bring some big change to the New Year.
While most of us rushed to see 2020 come to a close, something astrologically awesome happened just a few days before the New Year. December 21 marked the start of the Age of Aquarius, a time meant to be marked by a greater sense of kindness and peace on earth for all. Free daily horoscope. But what does it mean for babies born on or after December 21? Here are some fascinating facts about babies born during the Age of Aquarius.
Because the sun will reach, in 2021, the peak of an 11-years cycle, known as the maximum solar, different theoreticians rushed to speculate in this regard. It is a fact that when a maximum solar occurs, much more intense solar explosions take place than the previous ones, but this does not translate into total chaos or natural catastrophe.
At some point, you might have heard the song “The Age of Aquarius” by The 5th Dimension. But what actually is the Age of Aquarius, anyway? “We’ve been hearing of this ‘dawning of the Age of Aquarius’ since the 60’s popularized by the one-hit wonder of its namesake,” Sarah James Carter, an astrologer explains in an email to Romper. “But as a base case, the Age of Aquarius marker is largely debated in the astrology world and the true inception date is not entirely known.” Why? Well, a true age spans over two thousand years (the amount of time the earth spends in a particular zodiac sign), give or take. And according to Carter, the new cycle of Aquarius was marked on December 21 with the ‘Great Conjunction’ between Jupiter and Saturn meeting up in the sky at 0 degrees of Aquarius, signaling a start to a new era.
So now that you know why it’s called the Age of Aquarius, how will it affect babies born during this period? Read on to find out.
Every child has their own personality, but an Age of Aquarius kid might be extra energetic, explains Clarisse Monahan, an astrologer. “Every sign has a ruling planet and zany Uranus is the ruler of Aquarius,” she explains. Since Uranus’ axis is tilted 98 degrees (and thus pretty much makes the planet spin on its side, according to Space.com), you can expect your kiddo to be unconventional —in a completely good way. “Because this quirky Uranus energy will be aspecting children born during this age, their energy will be a little off kilter, but with it comes great innovation, too.”
Equality is a big deal for an Age of Aquarius baby. In fact, they are the ones who will question society and challenge social norms in an effort to make things free and fair for all. “Their super power is going to be their drive for fairness,” Monahan agrees. “Aquarius energy is extremely humanitarian, and it is the sign of the group effort versus individual, with ego taking a back seat.” And since Aquarius is on the Aquarius-Leo polarity (and therefore opposites), your baby is bound to be the kind of kid to bring about some much-needed societal change.
“Though we are technically in the Age of Aquarius for the foreseeable future, babies born from the 21st of December 2020 to the end of the 2021 are going to have extra intense Aquarian energy,” concludes Monahan. So expect that your Age of Aquarius baby will bring a lot of goodness to the world in the form of new innovation, a forward-thinking mentality, and an eager, can-do attitude. And like the famous 60s song says, they might be the ones to let the sunshine in once again.
The purpose of this document is to discuss the Age of Pisces and the Age of Aquarius in order to understand the influences of these two sidereal ages on our day-to-day lives.
To love oneself and others:
The Age of Aquarius invites us to elevate our souls through love of our fellow man and to take the scientific and technological means at hand to improve our comfort and well-being. Hence, Man shall fully achieve his role on Earth by asserting himself as the King of Creation, attaining self-fulfillment and self-control, and controlling nature.
From an astrological point of view, two values represented by two opposite signs (and two planetary positions) are the focus of the Age of Aquarius: the Sun in Leo and Uranus in Aquarius. The Sun in Leo invites us to take care of ourselves, love ourselves and fully develop all our talents. Uranus in Aquarius invites us to show altruism and love others.
These two values (self-love and love of others) are not irreconcilable. Actually, we are encouraged to enjoy a just part of the benefits and joys of life in tune with ourselves and others. A fair balance is to be reached between one’s aspirations and needs and those of others. In the centuries to come, such fair balance should easily lead us down the path to happiness.
In short, these two ages invite us to broaden our souls by showing love towards our fellow human beings and by taking the available scientific and technological means to improve our well-being and comfort. Therefore, Man will fully realize his role on earth by establishing himself as the King of Creation, by fulfilling himself, by being in control of himself and nature.
