he beginning of a new year can be a time inspiring change in our lives. We don’t know what the year holds for us, but we hold in our hearts the hope for new opportunities to move us forward. It is said that it is darkest before the dawn and 2o2o is just such a moment. We all have the amazing fortune to be not only witnessing but experiencing a historically pivotal time of spiritual and social transition.
For the World-2020 is the year where the Age of Pisces ends and the Age of Aquarius begins. We all know in life, beginnings and endings are never black and white. Ingrained world views and systems of belief cannot be changed overnight and thusly been quite apparent in the political, racial, social, environmental, civil, religious and spiritual upheavals taking place worldwide, especially in the last 50 years. Never has the world been so divided on every level.
The Age of Pisces values money, power, technology, and control; hence the destruction of our planet in the name of greed and the almighty dollar, oppressive social structures, over consumerism and demonization of anything or anyone directly connected to the Gods, the Old Ways, the Divine Source. As Sandra Weaver said, ” Throughout most of Pisces though this spiritual side is for the most part seen as the truth hidden behind the five senses. Spirituality was seen in relation to the world, not through an innate knowing of divinity“.
The Age of Aquarius values love, compassion and integrity of self which kicks off a time of healing our planet, our society and ourselves through humanitarian efforts. It is a time that brings us back to our ancestral roots and strengthens the need to participate in our local communities. Just as Pisces started out with the strengths of the sign, growth peaked and then became consumed in cycles perpetuated by its weaknesses; something that needs to be safeguarded against with the Aquarian traits if we are to be successful in healing our planet, society and ourselves.
While It can be very difficult to be a spiritual person in society with its currently held beliefs, the Age of Aquarius has the potential of ushering in a more spirit-centered/connected existence. This is now the time of embracing daily spiritual practices revering a higher power/intelligence and using our pagan understanding of our interconnectedness to the cosmos and natural systems that impact and inform our spiritual and earthly realities (which science is finally recognizing to be a truth). The question for the year and even possibly the decade is “Who am I going to be?” “How am I going to show up?” during this time of great change and transition.
It appears as if 2o2o is going to be a year of opportunity in reforming ourselves and aligning ourselves with more profound spiritual wisdom. For us, at Rosethorn Manor we have opted to focus our magical workings on maintaining the balance necessary in times of tumultuous change while weaving in the unique requirements of each individual.
How do you plan to ‘bring it’ for 2o2o?
