TOM BROKAW & RONALD REAGAN
TWO SIDES OF THE DIFFERENT AQUARIAN COIN
Word has been going around for a while now that we are approaching the “Age of Aquarius”, but what does that really mean? Neptune has just moved out of Aquarius into Pisces last Friday, February 3rd…this introduces a whole new connection to all things “Neptunian” ie. spirituality, music, dance, the healing arts, mysticism, religion, pharmaceuticals, hydraulics…anything that is dreamy, idealistic, and allows us access to other planes of consciousness will undergo a significant shift from the experimental, erratic, ingenious Aquarius, to Neptune’s true home of Pisces, the sign that has ‘been through it all’, and ends up at the very end…back home. The essence of Pisces is beautifully expressed by TS. Eliot’s famous lines: ‘We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time’. I think of Aquarius as that last step before reaching the final destination.
So, with this in mind, our current age of Pisces, moving into Aquarius, however long it takes, is akin to a spiritual backtracking. Perhaps we are missing something important and are getting another chance to learn that one single thing that could change everything for humanity. The theories are endless. What is for sure is at some point this Earth will have actually arrived into a new Aquarian Age, and it’s fun to ponder what this could mean for us now.
I normally don’t think of Tom Brokaw and Ronald Reagan as being similar, yet when I learned they shared the same Aquarian birthday of February 6th, my mind opened up to the possibility…that they are in fact, reflections of similar ideals, expressed in very different ways. Aquarius is the sign of change, for the sake of evolution, to ‘save’ humanity. They intrinsically feel themselves as part of a larger group, yet are driven to stand by their own beliefs at any cost. They truly are ‘for the people’, although their vision of what ‘the people’ need may be drastically different because their values are so infused with individual passion from their own personal experiences.
We all have a little Aquarius in us…that part that so passionately believes in something that we must share it…we must spread it across our friends, our community, our society, our nation, as if we were spreading our favorite jam across a slice of perfectly crisp dry toast… once the toast has been adorned with the jam, everything is perfectly edible and balanced, and we are free to enjoy.
Even though I’m not much of a news person, I personally am very fond of Tom Brokaw. There is something about him that strikes me as utterly genuine. I believe Reagan had a similar gift…people just ‘liked’ him, perhaps without even knowing why. This is the power of Aquarius. I believe Aquarians are automatically hard-wired into a unique, meaningful reality…it’s up to the rest of us to decide if we want to s ride with them, or find the Aquarius in our own selves, and dare to go a different way, a way that although may isolate us, will surely be our very own and can lead us to the home we all share as an evolving human species~
