The Age of Aquarius is Nothing Nefarious
I’ve heard remarks about how household endeavors (caretaking, gardening, landscaping etc) can put you in touch with the efforts of your past selves. I’m fond of this idea, and see in both myself and in my friends an affinity for activities that could easily have ancient roots. How can I apply this sensitivity to my more modern technological endeavors? Certainly, a 12th century incarnation had no interest in Facebook, or the iPhone/Android dilemma, but there must be a common thread. Connections, calculation, memory tools, and the pursuit of better tools are endeavors as old as human history. How can I search for a technological connection with my distant past?
Your question brings up an excellent point –it is fairly easy for the luddites of the world to identify with their past selves. It may even feel natural for them to sit at the loom, invoking fairies and gnawing on a giant turkey drumstick , as some historical reenactors are fond of doing. But how can a modern 21st century soul wholly dependent on technology get in touch with their past life?
First of all, our current social networking practices are more ancient than we think. Facebook and LinkedIn are little more than the guilds and clubs of the past that proliferated based on family origin, trade and mercantilism. Other online pursuits – pointless games, gossip, pornography and gambling all your money away – were also just as common then as they are now.
The cyber world is divided primarily into “Forums” and “Tools” and of course apps fall under the latter category. The main purpose of an app is to track activities that we don’t have time for in real life – consulting experts on the best pork sandwich within 5 miles, counting our push-ups, consulting astrologers and so on. The reason that we need all these tools, of course, is because the conveyer belt of modern life is moving at such speed and the amount of information to process is so great, we simply cannot do it alone and keep up.
But this escape into technology is no substitute for more tactile pursuits, and often our past-lives will continue to resonate in our personal auras – I see it all the time in my readings. The Google Earth nerd was an antique map maker, the obsessive OK Cupid lurker was the village matchmaker, and that annoying person on Facebook with all the apps was the village idiot. Let us not forget the jester caught in medieval stocks with tomatoes on his face – he is our ancestor’s version of Funny or Die.
I recommend a past life reading to help put your current technological pursuits into the greater historical context of human psychology. The most important thing here is getting to the root of how technology does service or disservice to your personal needs. Much of our technological dabbling is little more than pushing paper or chit chat, but what are you really trying to achieve in life and how do you think technology can aid your spirit quest?
I propose you challenge yourself to take everything you enjoy that’s hi-tech or online and try doing it without advanced technology for one week. Your subconscious will be stirred by this movement away from abstraction and may reward you with richer dreaming patterns and hypnotic visions. From here you can begin to learn more about your past lives.
PSYCHIC VISION: As I write this my brain is immediately flooded by a psychic premonition- a new smartphone app called “Aquarius” in which you type your 3 favorite things to do online and it quickly calculates your most recent past life with staggering accuracy. “1. Fox news updates 2. HotOrNot.com 3. World of Warcraft” BOOM: Teenage Confederate war veteran with phantom limb.
So you see, technology can also aid us in our understanding of our past lives, but only so much as we are not blinded by the distractions that it presents.
The technological frontier has close astrological ties with the Age of Aquarius, which will begin in the coming centuries as we leave the current cycle Age of Pisces. It will be the start of a profound shift where humans will use technology as a vehicle to heal, uplift and catapult the world into a new era of possibility. But it can be worrisome to many of us who fear that cyber technology will replace humans. Japan has taken the lead in replacing humans with robots by entrusting them to do everything from take care of their growing elderly population to invoking parental instincts via the Toddler Robot. As a hypnotist and intuitive, even I wonder if robots will eventually replace my timeless role. I have woken up in night sweats on multiple occasions after dreaming of having my palm read by a psychic robot with the face of Christopher Walken. It still gives me the shivers.
Resident Heated Forest Astrologer Lakota Rose states “I recommend taking a closer look at Big Daddy Uranus, the ruling planet of Aquarius, for insight into the Age of Aquarius as it relates to technology. Uranus portends massive change or mutation, and often the invention of new and revolutionary ideas, concepts, and discoveries. Technological advances fall neatly under the rulership of Uranus, as does an Aquarian’s natural affinity with all things Alien.”
In other words, we shouldn’t just be thinking about robots taking our jobs but aliens too. Technology will leave no stone unturned in it’s colonization of Earth. And yet there is no reason to fear- our innocence will keep us enveloped in the white light of the Creator’s favor. Technology is not the mystic’s enemy – it is a tool to use to our advantage in our astral journeys. We will welcome the robots and aliens into our tribe, because it will be the dawn of a new era. Our connection to humanity’s past will not be lost – while we will claim small evolutionary victories, we’ll forever remain a bunch of monkeys.
As the Age of Pisces comes to close, we will see a decline in the values associated with this sign – primarily blind faith and a love of false prophets. The last 2,000 years have been a clueless Gaia-bashing free for all filled with warm fuzzy mystical pudding and accented by the occasional Dervish hair-fling for extra sass. That is to say – totally irrational.
The Age of Aquarius, however, will be cut and dry. Hard as a diamond and powered by clean energy on a completely cohesive rational plane. That ought to please the technocrats.
