If your world feels out of balance at this time, you may find the answer in the quote attributed to Hermes Trismegistus: “As above, so below….” Whatever happens to us on Earth reflects the Divine plan of evolution working through the energies of the planets.
Right now, the energies are extremely intense as the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter and Saturn are all in the sign of Aquarius, forming what’s called in astrology – a stellium (a configuration of three or more planets in the same sign of the zodiac). All of this Aquarian energy is influencing the lives of everyone on Earth, especially from February 1 until February 18. The peak day is at the time of the New Moon on February 11 at 2:05 p.m. EST. This high-octane powerful and intense energy in the powerful sign of Aquarius is calling us to awaken to greater humanitarianism, a desire for Oneness, social justice, an expansion of consciousness, a quest for Truth rather than theory, and an integration of science and spirituality.
All of these planets in Aquarius form a square (a 90-degree angle that brings tense energy with one of two ruling planets of Aquarius – Uranus in the sign of Taurus). Uranus brings revelation as well as revolution. This indicates Earth changes, buried secrets coming to light, as well as possible violence and a desire to tear down the status quo. Fortunately, the influence of the second planetary ruler of Aquarius, Saturn, referred to as the planet of Karma and upholder of tradition, is particularly strong. It is reminding us that our actions, our thoughts, our intentions all have consequences.
This potent configuration is like a cosmic reminder that we can no longer continue as we have been and now is the time for us to move away from our infancy as a race and grow into conscious adults.
What does this mean for us; what can we expect and what should we do?
While the planets incline they do not compel. Since we have freewill, the choice of how we use these influences – by realizing more fully our divine potential or by continuing in our petty, selfish ways - is up to each and every one of us. There is a time for everything, and this is time to strive for spiritual goals. It is time to understand ourselves and others. It is a time to determine to make a positive difference. It is a time of giving through service to others, healing and prayer.
If we choose to do this, we are then using the potent energies of the planets to assist us and each other in our growth and evolution. It is as if God is pointing out to us the way forward through the influence of Its fantastic planetary emissaries.
Almost Sixty Years Ago - The Age of Aquarius Begins and the World Changes
Almost sixty years ago, on February 4/5, 1962, a similar stellium of seven planets took place in the sign of Aquarius during the time of a total solar eclipse. In 1962, the intensification of energy of this line-up of planets resulted in worldwide changes of social and spiritual consciousness. This was the beginning of a counter-culture: a new spirituality, transformative love. On the negative side, we saw free sex, drugs, a blurring of identity, confusion over boundaries.
The planetary configuration on February 11, 2021 is akin to humanity being given a second chance to uphold the positive attributes of the new spirituality of this Age, embodied by organizations such as The Aetherius Society.
In 1962, the stellium was reported in the news and celebrated among astrologers. However, it was the 1967 musical, Hair, with its opening song, Aquarius, with the line "This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius", that brought the Aquarian age concept to the attention of audiences worldwide. While the astrology wasn’t accurate, the words resonated with many people yearning to find a better way of living in keeping with the concepts of this song: “Harmony and understanding, Sympathy and trust abounding, No more falsehoods or derisions”.
However, the real significance of the 1962 configuration was taking place behind or one might say above the scenes. These actions by Masters and Ascended Masters from The Spiritual Hierarchy of Earth together with Interplanetary Intelligences known as Cosmic Masters who have been assisting humanity for many thousands of years, were absolutely astounding. This was reported in The Aetherius Society’s journal, Cosmic Voice # 26, July-August, 1962.
This Cosmic Voice included many messages, known as transmissions, received through the yogic mediumship of Dr. George King.
Our Actions Now During the time leading up to and after the most potent day of the planetary stellium on February 11, The Aetherius Society is using this intensification of planetary energies in the most potent way – by increasing our Spiritual actions and Services of global prayer and healing.
We invite you all to join us in our online and live-streamed Services at this time, so that you too can be a part of this change – leading us out of darkness into light. Let us remember that, in this Age of science – the Aquarian Age - it is our Love that is the most essential energy of all.
