From Pisces to Aquarius: The precession of the equinoxes
Share International editor Benjamin Creme has told many thousands who have attended his public lectures that the ‘New’ or ‘Aquarian’ Age is not an astrological prognostication, or even a religious concept, but an astronomical fact. In the following article, scientist Rick Roark explains the astronomical basis for this assertion.
Every space scientist will agree that, as the earth undergoes its various cycles of rotation, orbit and precession, these cycles simultaneously define the time of the day, of the year, and of the age, respectively. They will further agree that, by virtue of the present position of the earth’s precession with the sun to the distant constellations of the Zodiac, the earth-sun system is now in a transition period, moving from the Age of Pisces into the Age of Aquarius.....
...Because the ecliptic plane is defined by the unchanging pattern of earth’s orbit, it is considered fixed in space. However, the equatorial plane is always in motion as it follows the earth in its orbital journey about the sun. Therefore, the planar-line is in rhythmic motion in the ecliptic plane, sweeping out a slowly-pulsating, directed pattern in our solar system. This directed pulsation of the planar-line is a correlation of three cyclic activities: the pulse or rhythm of the elliptical orbit of the earth, the activity of earth’s rotation, and the activity of earth’s precession.
The planar-line is found to be currently aligned toward the region of space between the constellations of Pisces and Aquarius. The direction of the planar-line is independent of the earth’s rotation and orbit, so that the alignment direction to the Zodiac is relatively constant day after day, month after month, and year after year. The direction of alignment is entirely dependent upon the precession of the earth — that is, the wobble of its axis. As earth undergoes precession, the planar-line slowly moves its alignment through the houses of the Zodiac.
As a matter of scientific interest (but beyond the scope of this article), the particular spatial pattern created by the rhythmic pulsation of the planar-line is a teardrop shape not unlike the receiving pattern of a modern radio frequency antenna used throughout the modern world to receive unidirectional electromagnetic radio transmissions. When the receiving pattern of an antenna is positioned in a particular direction, it becomes tuned to the high-frequency transmissions arriving from that particular direction of alignment.
In the esoteric sense, the earth-sun system can be said to be an antenna for cosmic energetic activity streaming from the region of space occupied by the zodiacal constellation which dominates the particular planetary age.
