5TH DIMENSION


Age Of Aquarius Lyrics

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
This is the dawning of the age
Of a Aquarius, the age of Aquarius
Aquarius, Aquarius
Harmony and understanding
Sympathy and trust abounding
No more falsehoods or derisions
Golden living dreams of visions
Mystic crystal revelation
And the minds true liberation
Aquarius, Aquarius
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
This is the dawning of the age
Of a Aquarius, the age of Aquarius
Aquarius, Aquarius

The Earth has a second orthogonal rotational axis and completes one rotation every 25,800 years. The Earth is rotating forward relative to the 'fixed' stars. However, from the Earth, the stars appear to 'retreat' - this is also known as the 'Precession of the Equinoxes'. Viewed from the Earth, the stars retreat 360 degrees in 25,800 years. Therefore, as viewed from the Earth, the Sun retreats by one Sign of the Zodiac every 2,150 years. This is an '"Age". At the time that the 5th Dimension wrote this song we were still in the "Age of Pisces"; however, we were very close to the "Age of Aquarius". Therefore, the line "the dawning of the Age of Aquarius" was astrologically accurate. We are just now entering the "Age of Aquarius". Numerous ancient metaphysical or spiritual traditions do predict the "Age of Aquarius" to be a time period when we transit to a time of higher consciousness, revelation, more understanding, harmony, peace and love. So this part of the song is surprisingly accurate. However, the Moon is in the 7th house (Libra) 2.38 days every lunar month (29.53 days); and Jupiter is in conjunction (within 10 degrees) with Mars about every 2.5 years. So these verses either don't mean much or happen much more frequently if one makes these 'astrological' associations.

This was a great song in the late '60's and was included in the Play 'Hair'. It was played at the end when they allowed people from the audience to go up on the stage and dance with the actors..great

How can this happen if the mayan calender is correct? Come on people, They are just planets and stars and will not change the fact that people are selfish and will continue down a path of degradation.
