The Dawning of the Age of Aquarius

My local poli-blog, Horse's Ass, had an interesting post. Jon DeVore mentioned that according to one astrologer, at 7:25am on Feb. 14th, the Age of Aquarius will begin.

As you can see to my blog's left, I have included a short video snippet of the musical 'Hair' that features the song 'Age of Aquarius'. Needless to say, this song has been a favorite of mine for a long, long time.

I do prefer the Fifth Dimension version with a nice transition to 'Let the Sun Shine In' but the musical itself is the reason I love the song.

According to Wikipedia, this date and time is just when the astronomic events mentioned in the song occur, not necessarily when the actual age begins.

"When the Moon is in the Seventh House and Jupiter's aligned with Mars.
And Peace will guide the Planets, and Love will steer the Stars."

I'm not an astrologer so I can't claim any grand esoteric knowledge of this but everything needs a birthday so I'm giving the Age of Aquarius this one.

Any objections?

So Mote It Be,
David Aquarius
