We live in the age of information, and right now, as the human species, we have never had such quick, easy and direct access to endless information right at our fingertips. We are currently living in a special time that has never been experienced before.
The cycle of procession lasts 25 800 years, and there are 12 constellations in the zodiac. Roughly every 2 150 years, the sun's position at the time of the vernal equinox moves in front of a new constellation. The age of Aquarius begins when the March equinox points moves out of the constellation Pisces and into the constellation of Aquarius. I remembered back in 2012; everyone was telling me we are shifting into the Age of Aquarius on 21 December 2012, and the world as we know it is going to end. Now I understand the panic back then, considering the Mayan prophecies and the 2012 movie that stirred a panic. What is important to note is that yes, the world as we know it will end, but that does not mean that the actual world will end itself. Others believe that the age of Aquarius occurred in the year 2000, while others have theories that had happened way earlier.
While we are on the edge of the age of Pisces and we begin to move into the age of Aquarius, we can notice the changes around us happening drastically over the last 50 years. Technology and science have boomed beyond what we have ever imagined it to be, and it will only be getting more advanced. Once we have moved entirely into the age of Aquarius, which we are unsure exactly when that will be, however soon, life as we know it will be completely taken over by technology, media, and information.
In December 2020, there was a great conjunction between Saturn and Jupiter in the sign of Aquarius, and this is quite a big deal. Many astrologers say this conjunction marks the official beginning of the Age of Aquarius. When will the age of Aquarius officially begin? The truth is we do not know. What we do know is that we are very close, and we are seriously starting to see the impacts of this manifesting through the changes in life as we know it happening around us.
How is this impacting us currently?
We are being bombarded with so much information now compared to how much information we had access to 20 years ago, and this influx of endless information is confusing us. We get told by others; this is the truth. We are told by the things we watch this is true, and to be honest, there is so much information going around now that I'm sure no one out there knows what the actual truth is. We live in a world that has become a dumpster fire of information. There are so many views and opinions out there that I'm pretty sure finding the truth is almost inaccessible, and no one out there knows what the actual truth is.
With the internet, anyone can create information that goes viral, and everyone will believe it. An example of this is the Avril Lavigne conspiracy theory. A blog was created with all kinds of information on how Avril Lavigne is dead, and she is currently being impersonated by someone else. The theory originated from a Brazilian online blog in 2005. The blog post, which is in Portuguese, details the conspiracy and its evidence. When the conspiracy gained speed on Twitter and other websites, supporters of the ideas failed to notice an important disclaimer. This blog was created to show how conspiracy theories can look true. This blog post and theory was created to show how easy it is to make up any information, and people will think this is true.
Millions believed in the Avril Lavigne conspiracy, but if they had just done their research, they would see the entire conspiracy itself was a hoax to prove people's gullibility. Everyone is driving themselves crazy trying to convince others that their truth is the ultimate truth, but no one even knows what the truth is at the end of the day. I have noticed a massive rise in all kinds of theories and conspiracies regarding almost everything, actually, and this is just another example of the Avril Lavigne conspiracy theory effect. As humans, the age of information is still new to us, and we still need to figure out how to exist within this age of constant access to overwhelming information and how to process and discern between what information is worth taking in and what information is leading us down the wrong path.
We still have a long way to go, and we are merely in the infancy stage of this new information age we exist in, and we have a lot to learn. There are so many different ideas and opinions and perceptions out there that who are we to say that our opinion and belief is the ultimate truth? I'm sure that we cannot even 100 percent prove most of the things we believe in, yet we fight for it. With the dawning of the age of Aquarius, there will be no such thing as the ultimate truth. We need to get that opinion out of our heads that life and everything can be defined by one notion. The sign of Aquarius, in essence, represents acceptance, compassion, and understanding when it comes to the different kinds of people that exist within this world, as well as acceptance of their ideas and beliefs and not taking their opinions and their beliefs personally. This concept is still new and challenging to many people; however, we are slowly but surely beginning to move in a direction where this will become the state of consciousness of people on earth. Right now, we can see all the things happening around us regarding humanity standing up for human rights, and an example of this is the global protests we experienced this year in 2020 against racism.
