Age of Aquarius Arrives

Dear Madame L,

I'm very disappointed in you. The Age of Aquarium officially arrived one week ago (Nov. 11, 2011), and you didn't even mention it.

Shame on you,

Old and Faithful Reader


Dear Old Faithful,

Madame L wonders how seriously you're really taking this, especially since you called it the "Age of Aquarium."

Madame L has tried to make clear that her interest in astrological nonsense is strictly as an amused observer. 

However, for you and other easily amused Dear Readers, Madame L has Googled "Age of Aquarius" and has found that a great many people appear to be taking this seriously, which just goes to show... nothing, probably.


“We are entering the Age of Aquarius on November 11, 2011. It will be a new time. The entire psyche is changing. You must purify the mind, body and soul to be real, innocent, and sattvic (pure). Elevate yourself to be angelic. This age which you will serve is an age of awareness and experience.” This online magazine goes on to promise: "As we get closer and closer to November 11, 2011, which marks the official arrival of the Age of Aquarius, the collective consciousness of our planet is being impacted with profound changes. Aquarian Times provides tools for you to handle these changes and to become guiding lights for others as they, too, meet the challenges of the Aquarian Age."

Madame L hopes you will also be edified by this video, in which a very spiritual person points out that we are all individual bits of water, yet all unified in the same large ocean; and that this is a "super cool time to be alive," among other things.


Watch the whole thing for fascinating tidbits about the attack on New York, spies on the Internet, and other such revelations. 

Also, be aware that Yogi Bhajan's own estimation of the arrival of the Age of Aquarius has varied; at one point he said it happened ten years ago.  

Whenever it arrived, Yogi Bhajan has this message for all of us: 

"This will be the age of experience, expertise, and expansion. Prosperity shall be the key factor, and the prosperity message is: Prosperity, prosperity, prosperity, is perpetual with people who prefer to be penetrating, prepared and purposeful." (Don't you love a man with alliteration? No?)

But then, since Madame L has amused herself out for now, feel free to make your own Google search, and please feel free to share your results with Madame L and your fellow Dear and Gentle (and Old and Faithful) Readers.

Best of luck,

Madame L
