Robotics and the Aquarian Age

age of aquariusNo one really knows exactly when the Age of Aquarius begins.  The Great Year, the period during which the sun rotates back through the twelve zodiacal signs at the Equinoxes, is about 26,000 years which makes each zodiac age about 2150 years but when you’re talking about numbers this big there is significant room for error.

During the 1960s the Broadway play Hair pushed the idea of the Age of Aquarius into the mainstream as some sort of golden age of love and understanding but if you know anything about Aquarius you’ll know it’s not exactly that simple.  Aquarius has nothing to do with flower power. Aquarius is an air sign – it’s domain is the realm of reason and detachment, not love and peace.  Aquarius has two rulers: its traditional ruler is Saturn which can be cold and goal-driven.  Its modern ruler, Uranus, is the disrupter – under Uranus fairness and equality becomes more important than individual relationships or needs.  Aquarius governs technology, astrology, science and revolution.

While signs of the Age of Aquarius have been on the rise (computer technology, an increase in awareness of LGBT issues, revolutionary fervor throughout the world) it has really ramped up since Uranus has been in Aries, the sign of individual expression and motivation.

The growing field of robotics is an indicator of how close we are getting to the Aquarian Age.  Take a look at Sophia, the new humanoid robot from Hanson Labs:

A “chatbot” from Microsoft called Tay flamed out in Twitter wars in less than a day as exposure to the deadly Twitter environment led to .

The reality of technology in general, and robotics in particular, replacing jobs is now upon us, although Mercedes Benz recently announced they are .

Along with increased intelligence in robots comes the danger that trained robots could take over the rule of humanity in an effort to create an Aquarian universal  standard fairness and equality.  Science fiction is often just prediction in disguise.

    Excellent analysis. The Age of Aquarius has become an urban legend ever since the theatrical production of Hair proclaimed “This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius ….” Most newspapers and comments on blogs clearly relate the dawning of the Age of Aquarius to the 1960’s and 70’s when Hair first appeared. Many people are so disappointed with the direction the world has taken since those inspiring times (for some) of the 60’s and 70’s to the point where the sentiment has become `where is the goddamned Age of Aquarius anyway?’ Some journalists even state that the Age of Aquarius was a 20 year phenomenon applying only the 1960s and 70s.

    While people are ready to accept an Aquarian age commencing in the 60’s and 70’s as a fait accompli, rarely does anyone check the sources of such claims about the Aquarian age. The song’s lyrics contain the following:

    When the moon is in the Seventh House
    and Jupiter aligns with Mars
    Then peace will guide the planets
    And love will steer the stars

    While it is certainly melodious, from an astrological perspective it is absolute nonsense. The position of the moon in the seventh house, eleventh house or any house has no relationship in any way with the Age of Aquarius. Jupiter aligns with Mars (i.e. a conjunction) every couple of years or so and this has no relationship to the Age of Aquarius either. There is no reason why the Aquarius song should maintain astrological integrity due to poetic license. However this poetic license has continued unabated in the general public’s perception of this urban legend.

    The lyrics to a song, like poetry, can engage in poetic license. Poetic license has definitely occurred in the song Aquarius because once the lyrics of the song are categorized by zodiacal archetypes, only 10% is directed towards Aquarius while over half is directed to Pisces. So why is a song that is directed at the Age of Aquarius full of Pisces metaphors?

    The poetic license associated with the Age of Aquarius is so strong that probably in excess of 90% of everything ever stated about the Age of Aquarius is poetic license. In other words, if a concept about the Aquarian age sounds good – it must be true! This approach has not only been maintained by the general public, but also by most astrologers.
