The Aquarian Age Has Dawned

Below is Whisper #22 from my latest book, 48 WHISPERS, which is a collection of photographs and personal meditations created across a decade of travel to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation and the surrounding northern plains. 

“The world did not become round only at the point when it was acceptable to say it was round.” —Jan Fox

In 1633 Galileo Galilei was ordered to stand trial by the Catholic Church for believing that the Earth revolved around the sun. The Church maintained that humans sat at the center of the universe. To argue otherwise was heresy. Galileo was convicted, forbidden to teach, and relegated to house arrest. Centuries earlier Pythagoras first hypothesized that the Earth was round, but it would take nearly one thousand years for this wisdom to become commonly accepted. Both stories exemplify a defining characteristic of the Piscean Age (0 BC–AD 2000). The “truth” has often been carefully scripted and centrally defined.

But today we are living on the cusp of a new era. The Piscean epoch featured a centralized model of leadership in which people were governed through a web of deception and dogma. Conversely, the Aquarian Age now upon us is about the primacy of self and the innate capacity of the human spirit to determine one’s truth and one’s course. The symbol of this age is the water bearer—the water, a metaphor for knowledge that is being poured out and dispersed for all to use.

The Internet is a manifestation of this new template for shared power. So, too, is localized energy production, such as solar and wind power. In the Aquarian Age every individual is destined to become their own source of truth and light.
