People of the sixties were proud to proclaim the dawning of the Age of Aquarius and already there are indications of what it might bring. Aquarius is an Air sign and this makes invention, communication and originality some of the major themes of the New Age. As well as television, radio and telephones, computers and satellite communications are Aquarius forms of technology.
Age of Aquarius – New Ideas and Beliefs
People of the 21st Century will be more versatile and open-minded. There will be revolutions as old ideas and beliefs are overthrown. Scientific experimentation will veer more towards health and environmental issues and less towards instruments of destruction. Nations will get together to discuss how to share and distribute the Earth’s available resources more fairly.
Age of Aquarius Predictions – Tomorrow’s World
This is a time of transition; a time of revolution and social change. There will be the need to bridge the gap between man and the natural world i.e. man must get back to nature. The New Age will see humans reassessing their lives according to a new set of ideals. Nations need to get together to develop co-operative partnerships in order to make long-term benefits to the environment a priority. Qualities such as courage, imagination, vision and concern will play a vital role in establishing the structure of tomorrow’s world.
New Science in the Age of Aquarius
More efficient and economical systems of mass transportation will be developed but will science have all the answers? As it is realised that science, too, has its limits, there will be a growth of interest in non-scientific fields such as religion, astrology and mind power. Major reforms will take place within old-style religions. In order to survive, the Church, too, will adapt to meet the changing needs of its followers. Astrology is one of the oldest of the sciences and 21st Century science will become less technological, placing more confidence in astrology, philosophy and creativity. It could even be that our journeys into space will one day reveal to us that stargazing has a true scientific basis after all.
The Robotic Age in the Dawning of the Age of Aquarius
The ultimate humanoid robot has been the dream of science-fiction writers for a long time but could this particular fantasy soon become reality? With so much emphasis on the signs Sagittarius and Aquarius, the main themes are brotherhood and technology. It is possible therefore, that the 21st Century marks the start of an exciting new Robotic Age. Not only will scientists be constructing mobile, artificially intelligent robots but these robots will be able to learn for themselves and teach each other too.
The Sexual Revolution and the Age of Aquarius
Attitudes towards sex are more permissive today than ever before. Freedom and liberation may well be Aquarian words but riotous orgies won’t be the scene of the 21st Century. Sex will always be the best thing in life that’s free. It’s not, however, a purely physical experience. The New Age will increase man’s desire to explore the erotic landscape of sexual love. Many Indian tribes already use sex as a means of achieving higher states of consciousness. These are the types of ideas which will catch on in the West when people will be more inclined to stick with the one partner through life and to master love from within and not without their relationships!
Peace for the Planet in the Age of Aquarius?
Will it all be ‘Harmony and understanding’ like the words in the song? It’s a rosy hope for something that won’t happen overnight. It will probably take several generations before man achieves universal co-operation. The human race will never be at its best as long as there is discrimination based on gender, race or religion. Man will take a big step forward when prejudice and discrimination become a thing of the past. – All this is possible when the main objective during this New Age will be for humans to get together to work for the good of the planet and all creatures dwelling on earth; and to find the path that leads to perfect peace.
