This is the Dawning of the Age of Aquarius

When I was 12 years old [with the mind and looks of an 18 yr old], the flamboyantly beautiful rock opera, Hair, made the scene… and I could not get enough of it! An older, but still quite young herself, married neighbour loaned me her LP record.  I really did not want to give it back, but of course, in due time, I did.  It was energising and wild. Although I don’t believe I quite understood all the nuances of the lyrics – but a deal of the naughtier bits, I did – all I could see coming in the Age of Aquarius was a wilder, freer, and more youthful future. We, the children of love and peace, were going to set the world to rights. We see how that turned out for us now, here in our dotage.

Still, we are now in a new dawning of the Age of Aquarius in case you have not heard.  Many astrologers believe that the monumental “great conjunction” taking place on 21 December 2020 is the cosmic event that is officially heralding it in. On that date, the two largest planets in the solar system, Jupiter and Saturn [which are known as the greater benefice and greater malefic planets, respectively] will align in the sign of Aquarius for the first time in nearly 400 years. [And there was me believing I had already lived through the first coming of the Age of Aquarius at 12!] Both Jupiter and Saturn represent social issues in our lives and relate to authority and leadership, and they only form a conjunction aspect every couple decades — so when they do, it’s a big deal, which is why it’s known as a great conjunction. This is the standout cosmic event of the latter half of 2020, and it will catalyse some serious shifts.

Remember the date – 21 December 2020.  A British astrologer named Jessica Adams [@jessicaadams] predicted the very date when Coronavirus would take centre stage over a year before it happened.  She predicted a virus would take over the world on 10 January 2020 – which turned out to be when the first confirmed victim of Covid-19 died in Wuhan, China.  But, as things like this often do, it was swept aside by naysayers believing that no one could accurately predict the future.  Still, Ms Adams did just that… through astrology and because she is a psychic as well.

She also predicted Donald Trump’s downfall – the date? 1 October 2020 – the date he fell ill with Covid-19.  His luck has repeatedly run out since then and we here at the Covenstead are so incredibly happy that Mr Joe Biden and Mrs Kamala Harris are the President and Vice President elects for the US.  Long may they reign! Well… for a maximum of eight years, anyway. Well done, America!

Now, for future things to come.  Ms Adams says that Christmas will be fantastic.  Things will begin to change three days before Christmas.  “There will be Christmas and it will be a fantastic Christmas.  Things start to change about three days before Christmas Eve [remember the date I asked you to remember earlier?] – we see cycles we have not seen in decades – all about friendship and the group and global security,  Finally we get the Earth Coming together!”  Well! That is a turn up for the books! Enter the Age of Aquarius!

“In December of 2020, we are in for the beginning of a new age, [as] Saturn and Jupiter will be aligning in the sign of Aquarius,” astrologer Aaya Samadhi [@aayasamadhi on Twitter]. “This alignment is so significant because it means we’ll continue to have these two planets come together in air signs until 2059.” This alignment is in contrast to the intense Capricorn stellium that took place back in January [and kicked off the rise of global pandemic], during which Jupiter, Saturn, and several other significant points and planets were clustered together in rule-oriented Capricorn.

But the energy that these planets will express through an air sign like Aquarius differs greatly from the traditional and authoritative vibe they brought forth in Capricorn, which is the sign they resided in during the start of the year. “Air signs represent intellect and ideas, and Aquarius is the sign of innovation, technology, and revolution,” Samadhi says. While this alignment is inarguably going to be intense, the Aquarian focus on collective well-being, logical thought, and innovative growth feels like a breath of fresh air — and it could deliver some much-needed glimmers of hope for the future.

“This great conjunction will spark the beginning of many new advancements in technology, medicine, and ideas — and we’ll also see a spotlight on more humanitarian issues, since Aquarius is the sign of the humanitarian,” Samadhi says. “If you thought humanitarian issues came to the forefront in 2020, you can expect a lot more after the Saturn and Jupiter in Aquarius alignment this December.”

You can see the two astrologers are in remarkably close agreement – without having consulted one another to my knowledge.  It should give us all pause to give thanks to the Universe… and maybe a small celebration. 

I am not an astrologist; however, I am not without my psychic abilities and I reckon that is because of being in nearly constant contact with my dearly departed… many centuries full of them. I do not go round making my predictions public because I would scare the life out of many.  Still, many will be heartened by what I can tell you.  Without the astrological backing, I felt the shift coming before Mars moved out of retrograde recently.  I knew/felt great things were afoot.  I also knew that there would still be much strife to overcome but it would be overcome indeed. It was not mentioned when speaking of astrologist Jessica Adams, but she predicted no Covid-19 vaccine and that we would just need to learn to “live with it” like AIDS. I disagreed with her on this.  I knew we would… and happily we have two different drugs manufacturers, Phizer and Moderna, whom have vaccines in final trials with one being at least 90% effective and the latter being at least 94% effective.  Mind, it will take an abundance of time to get these made and distributed worldwide, but every journey begins with one small step.  It would not surprise me a bit if the small step came around the 21st of December. 

Also, by that time, with any kind of luck, the world awaits and hopes for Donald Trump’s concession to President elect Joe Biden’s win.  Then again, it could be more around the 2nd of January… leaving so little time for Mr Biden to collaborate [!] with Mr Trump on a range of issues, not least of which, Covid-19.

I do know and feel with all my heart and soul that people worldwide will have a much happier Christmas than one would have thought only months ago.  And, apart from the few here and there, sensible minds will prevail in combatting not only Coronavirus but also in coming back together better than before as nation after nation begins to realise that we are better together than apart. We shall probably never have 100% peace on earth; however, I believe we shall be closer to it now than in centuries past.  I also believe that most nations will become profoundly serious about combatting Climate Change… no more greenwashing. 

Another thing.  I wholeheartedly believe in the Universe as the giver of abundance and the lesson giver to those who get too far out of line.  When one rails at the Universe that they are being treated unfairly or that the Universe “always” treats them wrongly, it my considered opinion that the person kicking up the fuss has probably done enough wrong-headed things to make the Universe seek to teach them a lesson. This is not a punishment, which many seem to believe.  This is a time to think about the things you have done wrong and to “atone” by putting them right and moreoverly, to learn not to make the same mistakes again.  As the Universe sees you are actively and caringly correcting what you have done and most importantly, learning a lesson from it, you will see things becoming easier for you.  The Universe never puts upon you more than you can handle and whilst things may seem terrible for a bit, it is not the Universe’s fault… it is your own. I know this very well, being the recipient of the Universe’s lessons. Now, I thank the Universe for those… they have helped make me a better person.

That said, I believe it is up to us all to learn our lessons when it comes to Climate Change, racism, negativity about other’s religions, fascism, xenophobia, rudeness, sociopathic tendencies, and more.  I’m not painting everyone with the same brush.  Everyone of us has our “cross to bear” as my Nan would have said.  No naming and shaming here. I’m guilty, you’re guilty, we’re all guilty of something.  But we can mend this, and we must.  The Universe wants to give us more carrot, not stick.

It is truly the Dawning of the Age of Aquarius again. Join me in making it work x

“Harmony and understanding

Sympathy and trust abounding

No more falsehoods or derisions

Golden living dreams of visions

Mystic crystal revelation

And the mind’s true liberation



Whilst I [hopefully] still have your attention…. I would like to share my dear youngest daughter, Alexis, GoFundMe page.  I wrote it for her but it’s her page.  The story on the GoFundMe will reveal all but I will just say that I ask each of you to please just share her page on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram if you will be so kind. They have a minimal amount of time to receive enough donations to get through their plight… I wish I could do more for her myself, but sales do not add up to enough. I am not asking for you to donate – I know many of you are in the same fix or one worse. If you can donate, any amount will help, whether 5, 10, etc. But sharing everywhere possible would be the most help as someone, somewhere will see it who can afford to donate and this is all I ask. Many thanks.

Many thanks for reading and warmest blessings to all whom this way wander x
