A lot has been written and said about the Dawning Age of Aquarius - the subject has been veritably vlogged to death! There's even been plenty of dispute about its true beginning. As I expressed in Openhand's Solstice Journal, it feels very clear to me that the great Saturn/Jupiter conjunct of this winter solstice did indeed mark the beginning of this New Age. It spoke to me through signs and synchronicity, not least the huge water bearing storm Bella, that swept through the UK on Boxing Day: we have moved from the age of Pisces and into that of the water-bearer Aquarius.
What can we intuit about the influence on planetary consciousness?
What does it tell us about how to prepare ourselves going forwards?
Heralding the New Age
Without a shadow of a doubt, 2020 has been a pivotal year, where the dust has not yet even settled on the earth shattering shifts. A shroud of darkness seeks to stretch itself across society. In the name of the bogus pandemic, people's fear has been preyed upon by a shadow consciousness to usher in a system of control in the guise of The 4th Industrial Revolution. The shadow state has just conducted an humungous charade, a game of smoke and mirrors, through which it has blinded many of the world's population. It's divided group against group with the majority policing each other about how we should and shouldn't act in the face of this "terrible disease" (which by all reliable statistics is no worse in impact than seasonal flu). This is not the kind of "Heralding of the New Age" we might have expected!
We must however deal only with the truth as we see it, and not some alternate time line we would rather wish or hope for. And let me quickly add, it is not someone else's truth to behold either, including mine. The first thing we can accurately say about the Dawning Age of Aquarius is that we're moving out of the age of global religion and secular leaders, into a time where each is encouraged to find their own inner guru. That is clearly one very positive shaft of light shining forth through all of this - the encouragement to personal sovereignty. So only take whatever resonates with you at a soul level. But do be open that another my hold some important keys to unlock new doorways of your own truth.
What else might we say about the Dawning Age of Aquarius?
Resolving Your Emotions Through the Baptism of Water
Curiously Aquarius is an air sign and yet symbolised by the water-bearer. When I completed my recent tour of the UK leading into the solstice (second stage yet to come), visting both high and low energy sites, synchronicity spoke of the power of water - of spilt water. Interestingly just after my tour concluded, Britain was battered by storm Bella. To me this is highly significant - we must pass through the plane of the emotions in order to reach the higher vibrations of air.
What does this mean specifically?
We might look at it in terms of the 5GATEWAYS, the five shifts of consciousness leading to human Enlightenment and Ascension into 5D. The first gateway is all about awakening to the soul and with that gaining greater personal sovereignty. The second gateway is about walking the path of the soul and finding realignment with the soul's purpose. It's characterised by the "baptism" - you're being baptised as a disciple of your own soul. And this happens through water, through the plane of emotions. By working through emotional ties into the old consciousness, you start to reach the higher plane of air - or mind.
Do not underestimate the importance of resolving your relationships in this great shift, for it is pivotal.
2020: A Clear Parting of the Waves
2020 has been a highly synchronistic year in terms of numerology. I clearly felt, and stated this time last year, that it would signify a parting of the waves. That was accurate. The shadow state is leading a large swathe of humanity into new high tech synthetic reality. There will be people in your immediate familiy who, through the mask and the vaxx, are willingly sleep walking into the controlled agenda. It's going to invite you to find your inner emotional boundaries like never before.

Remember the difference between empathy and sympathy. To empathise doesn't mean to carry the other's burden for them; it doesn't mean to jump into the flooding trench with them. As tough as this will be, it means forging the emotional strength and freedom of your own soul; aligning with your own higher soul's path. It's only by embodying the light and shining it forwards that you can really help anyone. AND, it is NOT your obligation to help EVERYONE, for not everyone is yet ready or willing to receive real enlightenment at this time.
So Aquarius invites you to forge your soul in the challenging plane of emotions. Break the jug. Let the water flow forth. Let it stir you up so it may cleanse you of attachment.
You'll start to embody more through the plane of mind. Yes, the plane of mind, for it is a higher vibration than the plane of the emotions. Let's not confuse conditioned left-brained rigid behaviourisms, which are physical vibrations, with the clarity of higher thought. The plane of the intellect can be clearly informed by your higher divinity when not clouded with emotional attachment. Now we're getting into the true meaning of the Aquarian Age as an air sign. In the 5GATEWAYS routemap this purification process leads to unification of higher and lower mind through Kundalini Activation. But kundalini can only truly activate once the lower physical and emotional vehicles have been cleansed and realigned.
Aquarius and The Higher Plane of Mind
This is where I feel to depart from the astrology. As with all the other ages, Aquarius will endure just over 2000 years. You don't have to wait that long! The invitation instead is to take the emphasis in which we enter this New Age in the context of the circumstances we find ourselves sailing through. These are highly charged times, pitting person against person, that will challenge family relationships to the core. As difficult as that will be, it's necessary to forge the soul and be able to establish firm emotional boundaries -
You are NOT the others keeper. Just as you wouldn't want another to walk your path for you, so you must lay down the burden of carrying the others karma that only they can process. Are you ready to be that emotional warrior? Can you empathically stand and reflect back the truth that you feel in your heart - can you stay true to that?
As 2020 signalled a parting of the waves, so 2021 will signify focus on the one pathway forwards that is yours and yours alone - one that leads into the 5th Density. For sure you'll have to nagivate the turbulent seas of the emotions. Don't let any "love n light" mantra delude you into thinking it will be easy. It won't. But if you're prepared to face the situations you'll encounter in honesty and truth, then you most definitely will find the pathway through them and it will be the making of you - the forging of soul through the plane of emotions such that you may embody the air sign of the New Age. That's the opportunity 2021 reveals when you strip back the charade of 2020. That's the parting of the waves.
As the New Era dawns it's time to prepare. It's time for focus. The meditation I shared in this Facebook LiveStream is designed to help by opening to the energy and embodying essential new aspects of beingness. See how it might help you...
