Gandanta points are transitions between water and fire signs in Vedic astrology. These are 29 degrees Pisces to 0 degrees Aries, 29 degrees Scorpio to 0 degrees Sagittarius, and 29 degrees Cancer to 0 degrees Leo. These points are associated with a lack of boundaries, specifically the boundary from the earthly to spiritual realm. By this approach, Stephen gives the reader information about the prophecies that have already happened, the beginning of Kali-yuga (the last age-the age of quarrel), the changes during this age, the special age of enlightenment (the Golden Age) in Kali-yuga, the next incarnation of God, and the destruction of the world. From December 21, 2020 the Age of Aquarius(Golden Age) started and the Age of Pisces came to end. According to Age of Aquarius, the first some years will be a deep transformation phase. It means our soul and body will go through certain transformation and the old characteristics of human soul will be purified. THE BEGINNING OF THE BIG RELIGIONS +/- 300 BC - 1900 AD???? (This is the big debate) The Age of Pisces has been dominated largely by religion, Christianity in particular, with its peculiar mixture of persecution and spiritual salvation. The vernal point is the location of the sun in the sidereal zodiac on the day of the spring.


NOTE: Calendar dates given in this article are given as an example, and not meant to be depended on to be accurate, as these dates are very controversial and are hotly debated by thousands of scholars every day.

The Ecliptic

The Ecliptic is the Great Circle that describes the apparent path of theSun around the Earth (but which is really the orbit of the Earth around theSun. The Ecliptic extends approximately 8-9° of arc above and below(North and South of) the actual path of the Earth/Sun. The other planetsin the solar system are always visible within this band of sky. The longitudinal(East-West) position of celestial bodies (i.e. planets, asteroids, etc.)is measured along the ecliptic.

Signs. The Signs are units of measurement each equal to 30 degrees ofarc along the ecliptic.

Vernal Point. The point measured along the ecliptic which represents theapparent position of the Sun at the moment of the Vernal (Spring) Equinox.At the moment of the Spring Equinox, the Sun is directly overhead at mid-dayalong the Tropic of Cancer.

The Earth doesn't so much 'shift' on its axis as it 'wobbles' The Earth'saxis is tilted at an angle of approximately 23.5° to the plane of theecliptic. This tilt is what produces the seasonal variations. The Earth isalso not a perfect sphere; it bulges in the middle near the Equator. Thisunequal distribution of mass causes the Earth to 'wobble' around its rotationalaxis like a gyroscope. What this means is that the Earth's axis makes itsown rotation, with the North and South Poles slowly describing a circle aroundthe ecliptic pole (which is the pole exactly perpendicular to the plane ofthe ecliptic; the North and South poles, remember are tilted 23.5 degreesaway from this plane). How slowly? Well, a complete cycle takes about 25,800years. (26,920) The precession can also be seen in terms of the 'North Star'.Currently the North Pole of the Earth is aligned with the fixed star Polaris.This was not the case 3,000 years ago; and by the year 14,000 A.D., the NorthStar will be Vega, not Polaris.

This rotation of the Earth's axis occurs at something like 1° every71.5 years (See RainDream) (about 5 seconds of arc per year). The 'wobble' and theprecession of the equinoxes were known to the Ancient Egyptians, althoughthe first official 'discovery' of it was made by an Ancient Greek astronomer,Hipparchus, who was born sometime around 190 B.C. It was noted because theSun was in a slightly earlier position at the time of the Spring Equinoxeach year (as measured against the fixed stars). Because the movement slipsbackwards through the zodiac, it is called precession (as opposed to aforward-movement which would be called progression).

Now 1° every 71.5 years doesn't sound like too much, but it certainlyadds up over 2,000 years or so, and this is where we get into the differentZodiac systems.

NOTE: The dream I had of the rain starting which would be 71 inches refersto the Age of Aquarius where I was putting up a tube to hold and measurethis rain, as Aquarius is the 'Water Bearer' sign.


The ecliptic is a circle, and the thing about a circle is that it doesn'thave a beginning or an end. if you want to be able to measure something alonga circle, you have to establish some sort of a reference point. The Zodiacas we know it today was first used by the Ancient Greeks over 2,000 yearsago. Their year began with the Spring Equinox, and so it made sense to pickthat point ­ that is, the point in the sky where the Sun appeared tobe at the time of the Spring Equinox, as the reference point, and then dividethe ecliptic into 12 equal segments from there. At the time, the Spring Equinoxoccurred when the Sun was in the band of the ecliptic that also includedpart of the Constellation of Aries. The first 30 degree division of the eclipticwas named 'Aries', and the remaining 11 segments were likewise named afterthe well-known and easily-recognized constellations that roughly correspondedin sequence. The Greeks never used the actual constellations to measure thepositions of the planets, however, because the constellations did not dividethe ecliptic into equal segments.

Each Great Age is associated with a major evolutionary and culturaladvancement of the species.

The AGE of GEMINI was about sharing Ideas. GEMINI the AIR Sign is relatedto thinking and has as a keyword Intellect. To share something with someoneelse a Language of some kind is needed.

The beginning of written [China, India and Mesopotamia], symbolic [Sumeria,Egypt and the Americas] and spoken language [Chinese and Hebrew].

Most of us know very little about this period of history, 7 to 10 thousandyears ago. In part because our intelligent Western Scientists refuse to givethe ancient Chinese, Indian [American and Sub-Continent] and Mesopotamiancivilizations credit for their advanced development. Also some Western ReligiousFundamentalists say planet Earth is only 5500 years old.


5900 years ago a Chinese Military Commander named Shen Loam in chargeof that Empires Western frontier wrote in his military log. Grateful forhis station assignment he made it his duty to the Emperor to personally testevery known edible plant for it's food, non-food, medicinal and non-medicinalvalue. There are over 25,000 edible plants on Earth. The written documentationof all these tests were his gift to the Emperor for the Honor of being elevatedto Supreme Commander. The Chinese language is still basically the same asit was then, so it is fairly easy for current day Chinese to read these pricelessdocuments.


Petroglyphs different from the kind found in Egypt are quite numerousalong the banks of the Colorado River in Arizona, California and Nevada.30 miles south of Las Vegas, Nevada, one petroglyph site follows a creekbed all the way to the Colorado River. NOBODY knows what these particularpetroglyphs say. All the people that created these symbols and all theirancestors or those who could translate them are now dead.

The Paiute and Shoshone tribes who inhabit this land today do not havea clue as to what the symbols mean. Archeologists and Anthropologists datethese Petroglyphs at between 5000-7000 BC.

There are numerous other examples of symbolic language around the planetdating from the 7000 to 9000 year old era, do you know of one?

It was the third age, or the Age of Gemini 6,000 to 8,000 years ago, whensome people on the Earth believe Adam and Eve lived. Gemini is also knownas the twins or Adam and Eve in the ancient Zodiacs.




+/- 4700 BC- 2500 BC

The AGE of TAURUS is about the control of EARTH. EARTH in the form theking's land. EARTH 'holds' WATER.

In the Age of Taurus, agriculture was discovered, and for the first time,towns, villages, and cities were formed because humans no longer needed tohunt and gather for their food and so were not required to be so nomadic.

The 'AGE' of TAURUS is probably best characterized by the Great Pyramidof Egypt. Plus there are many other huge structures from that period thatstill exist in Egypt and the Valley of the Nile. All these giant buildingswere monuments to the Pharaoh's [kings or queens] or GODS of that ancientEgyptian Civilization.

Most Egyptian Pyramids have great ASTROLOGICAL as well Astronomicalsignificance. The Pyramids also have major GEOMETRIC and MATHEMATICAL importance.These incredible EGYPTIAN remains are some of today's most popular touristattractions.

The age of the Great Walled cities; Babylon and Sumeria are also includedin the 'AGE' of TAURUS, the age of Homelands. With a huge wall around acity-state it was virtually impregnable. People couldn't get out either.

The AGE of TAURUS is also when the Chinese Empire began. These peoplewere an organized civilization since even before that time.




+/- 2500 BC - 300 BC

The AGE of ARIES was about expansion of the Empire. Aries is A FIRESign, Fire radiates outward. It seems very natural then when individualswith ARIES SUN SIGNS tend to be the adventurers.

The AGE of ARIES is the age of the expanding Ancient Empires; Chinese,Persian, Greek and then Roman. Each of these civilizations sought to alwaysbring more land and territory under their control. These Empires did so byconquering the indigenous peoples of the lands as they expanded outward.

Each one of these civilizations had as it's leader, one central figure[Emperor or Precept] in a far-off capital. The power structure of each ofthese Empires was administered by a large dedicated military.

Scholars are reluctant to use country names such as China prior tothe 2nd century BCE, because these terms are modern names, not those usedby the civilizations that were in existence at that time.

MOSES is thought by many in Western Society to have ushered in the Ageof Aries.

Vedic Astrology End Of Beginning Of Age Of Enlightenment Period

The Age of Pisces has been dominated largely by religion, Christianityin particular, with its peculiar mixture of persecution and spiritualsalvation.

The vernal point is the location of the sun in the sidereal zodiac onthe day of the spring equinox. Our present tropical calender and zodiac placesthis as 1 degree Aries, when in fact, due to the precession, every 72 yearsit is 1 degree backwards in the zodiac. As of February 10, 1983, the longitudeof the vernal point was exactly 5 1/2 degrees Pisces in the sidereal zodiac.For this reason, we live in the ASTRONOMICAL AGE of Pisces.

The AGE of PISCES is related to WATER, NEPTUNE and the subconscious mind.All human bodies are roughly 90% sea water, we each, must also take in newwater daily. These are two very important similarities between all Homo Sapiens.'We' are all connected in several other ways too!

The AGE of PISCES is/was a period when 'evil' or the 'dark side' of theHuman Mind controlled civilization. FEAR has been humanity's primary motivationto act, for over two thousands years. Unreasonable FEAR.

That is why wise Ancient's hid as much valuable information as possible,to preserve it. They knew society was going into a long term decline andmuch of the important stuff would be destroyed or misinterpreted, intentionallyand unintentionally. Human being's ego's make them make many mistakes wheninterpreting the past but nobody's around to refute that opinion.Convenient.

The beginning of AGE of PISCES should be dated from the Birth of Buddha.Buddha came from an angel. That was several hundred years before Jesus Christwas born from a virgin. The AGE of PISCES is best characterized by the abovetwo guys, their spiritual philosophy's and another profit named Mohammed.3 great religions have come upon Earth during the AGE of PISCES, Buddhism,Christianity and Islam.

Christianity has come to dominate the planet during the AGE of PISCESbecause of it's inherent violence. Along with it's hypocrisy and GREED.Christian's shouldn't be to worried about remaining in power because theMoslems are only following the examples set by the ruling Christians. NOT!.

The WORLD has been at WAR since the beginning of the PISCES AGE. Duringthis period the huge Chinese Empire became fragmented from internal bickeringand from outside intruders.

Many very cruel things were also done to human beings by their fellowHumans[?] during this period. Examples:

Adolph Hitler [Germany], Joseph Stalin [Russia], Pol Pot [Cambodia], RadovanKaradzic [Bosnia], genocide in AFRICA and the infamous Spanish Inquisitionhave killed hundreds of millions of people.




The precession of the equinoxes has to do with more than just the twodifferent zodiac systems. As the equinoxes precess, they relate to the GreatAges of Man. These Ages mark different periods where significant evolutionarychanges occurred. The Ages are defined by the Sidereal Sign that is the currentlocation of the Vernal Point. Currently, the Spring Equinox (0° of Ariesin the Tropical Zodiac) occurs at about 7° of the Sidereal Sign of Piscesand we will be in the Sign of Pisces until the Spring Equinox precesses intothe Sidereal Sign of Aquarius, which will mark the beginning of the Age ofAquarius. (Even agreeing on this definition of the 'Ages' there is much disputeas to the actual year that the 'Age of Aquarius' will begin.

The general thoughts about the Age of Aquarius are that it will mark aperiod of enlightenment and freedom.

Precession of the Vernal Equinox.

When Moses threw out the golden calf, he knew it was the end of the TaurusAge or the fourth age in our present great year. He instructed his followersto get rid of the bull, put lambs' blood on the doors, and place Rams' hornsin the temples. By looking at the Master Calendar, the Mazzaroth, or theZodiac in the heavens, anyone could see that it was the dawning of the Ageof Aries the ram or lamb. It was the start of the fifth age in our currentgreat year

Our Current Position in the Great Year

(Cross takes 25,920 years to make one turnthrough the twelve ages)


Our astrological birth signs no longer coincide with the sun's locationin the constellations of the Zodiac because of precession. Even the Tropicof Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn are now the Tropic of Taurus and theTropic of Scorpio when we observe the sun on the solstices? Our astrologersand map makers neglected to update our present position in the cosmos forover 2,000 years. We are not the astrological birth signs the newspapersand a majority of the astrologers proclaim we are!

The North star (pole star) also changes with the precession of the equinoxes.The North star was Thuban (Alpha Draconis) when the Great Pyramid was constructedto align with true North. The descending passage of the Great Pyramid pointsto Thuban, the most accurately aligned pole star of all the North stars inthe 25,800 (26920) -year cycle of our Earth.


Comprehend that the word sphinx means to bind or close a circle tightly,and that the Great Sphinx binds Virgo and Leo in the Zodiac on the ceilingof the Portico — at Esna's Khnum Temple. The Great Sphinx marks the'Happy New Year' of our present Platonic year, and Leo was the first agein this great year. Listen when the Vatican informs us every Christmas Eve,when it reads the ancient Calens (calendar) from Rome, that it was the sixthage or the Piscean Age when Jesus, the fisherman, was born 2,000 years ago.Even the ancient Persians called Polaris the 'turning point star' 5,000 yearsbefore it became our current pole star between the sixth and seventh ages.

At one time in history, the Vernal Equinox used to indicate New Year'sDay in our annual calendar until Julius Caesar moved it to January 1 in 45BC. The names of our months still reflect March as the first month of theyear. In Latin, Septem is seven, Octo is eight, Novem is nine, and Decemis ten. This is why the name of an age is determined by where the sun ison the Vernal Equinox. The megalithic monuments like Stonehenge, ChichenItza, and Casa Grande are all trying to find the Vernal Equinox or the firstday of spring in the Northern Hemisphere.

The ancients refer to the coupled-ages of Pisces and Aquarius in the greatyear as the time for the FisherMan or Merman to return from the sea. Theold legends say that he will teach the people how to heal and govern themselves.(See dream of theFisherman)

Our scientists inform us that, in the great year, we are dawning intothe Age of Aquarius and leaving the Piscean Age. When someone says, its thedawning of the Age of Aquarius, that is no different then someone saying,it is the beginning of the month of July. Only, ages are around 2,150 (2160)years long, while months are made up of approximately 30 days.

Every culture had their own personal system to begin the new year andall nations, except for the Essenes, used a lunar calender consisting of13 months and between 354 and 364 days. Enter Julius Caesar. With the helpof an initiate named Sosigenes, the first calender reformed occurred. Takingthe year 47 BC, at which time our January 1st would have fallen on October13, he inserted two new months of 33 and 34 days between November and December.Then, he added an intercalary period of 23 days near February for a totallength of 445 days. Macrobius called this long year, the last year of confusion.Beginning the next year, he started a new year of 365 days with a leap yearevery fourth year of 366 days. Had he asked, or maybe Sosigenes told him,but he could not wait, the Ancient Wisdom would have told him to begin thenew year at a new moon on an equinox or solstice.

Julius did get one-half of it right. In 45 BC, the new moon occurred 7days after the December 24th solstice, so he made December to have 30 days,and began the new year 7 days later on what he called the calends of January.Of course, it would have been better to have waited until a new moon coincidedwith the winter solstice, but that is how the new year begins on January1st. Caesar harmonized the seasons with the calender, so that winter wasagain under the signs of Capricorn and Aquarius, except for the precessionwhich no one then would have noticed.

Now the Julian year had 12 months, to which he assigned 30 days to evenmonths and 31 days to odd months, with the exception of February, which had29 days. Not to be outdone by his father, for whom the month of July wasnamed, Augustus later renamed August and stole one day from February to givehimself a 31 day immortal honor. Since the Julian calendar is 11 minutesand 14 seconds longer than the tropical year of the seasons, by 1583 theyear was about 10 days behind the seasons (one day in 128 years). Pope GregoryXIII introduced a reform to delete a leap year every century mark exceptthe fourth.

The second change occurred at that famous Council of Nicea held in 325AD by Constantine the Great. Then the good church fathers decreed that themonths be forever fixed, so that on whatever day the vernal equinox occurred,it would arbitrarily be called March 21st and the remainder of the year toadjust accordingly. Since then, instead of the equinoctial point moving steadilythru one month to another to reflect the precession, the first day of springand Aries is fixed and the months move slowly away backwards.

With the calender now adjusted for a fixed tropical year, we can lookat the remainder of the great cycle upon which all occult time is reckoned.The actual rate of precession is equal to 1 degree every 72 years or accordingto Newcomb in 1925, 50.2610' per year. Therefore, at this precessional rate,the sun travels westward thru an entire sidereal zodiac house (30 degreesX 72) every 2,160 years.

The Numbers of the Platonic Year

Since ancient times, the natural constant of the movements of the pointof sunrise, the intersection between equator and eclipse at equinox and solsticein one year was 50 '. In the equation:

1° = 60 '

60 ' = 3600 '

3600 / 50 = 72 (a)

a = 1 earth year

a = 50 '

72 earth years amount to one degree of the Zodiac. One Platonic day lasts72 earth years. One Platonic month covers a period of 30 Platonic days, or2160 earth years. Twelve Platonic months give the Platonic year, which lasts360 x 72 = 25920 earth years. This system, already used in Chaldaeic astronomy,orientates itself by the numbers 6 and 12, out of which 72 is the product.Each Platonic month was related to one starsign, or Zodiac sign. The lengthof each of the twelve starsigns are different - they are not evenly spacedat 30-degrees each around the 360-degrees of the ecliptic path in the sky.Therefore, the real duration of time in each starsign is not usually equalto a Platonic month. Guenther Wachsmuth listed the duration times in atable:







45 (x 72 =)


13800 to 10500 BC





10500 to 7900 BC





7900 to 6500 BC

(NOTE: I am showing this chart as an example, not that I agree with hisfinal numbers as to what years the Ages begin and end)

Only the duration of Scorpio is identical with the length of the Platonicmonth. Seurig and Baumann came across such numbers again and again in theirresearch into the constructions of the ancient builders.

The World of Numbers of thePlanets

Prehistoric constructors obviously had a knowledge of the planets thathad been passed down to them from even more ancient times (see Otto Apelt'sTranslation of Plato's Timaeus, Leipzig 1919). With their help,the three-dimensional relationships were explained, while the Zodiac servedto show the course of time. The basis was the supposed agreement ofthe musical seven-step scale and the 'seven' of the then-known planets, includingthe sun and moon. From this interval, the equation 2 x 3 x 8 x 8 =384 was determined. Surprisingly, the distance between moon and Earthis 384,000 kilometers; the 384 in a relationship of 1 : 1000. By usingthe Tetractys, the holy four-count of the Pythagorans, the multiple of itis seen in this pyramid:

2 3
4 9
8 27

The multiple of the ratio of the moon could then be used for the otherplanets. Apelt's work reveals this table:






























































There are 'problems' with figures in this table, such as the figures givenfor Venus, Mercury, and the sun, but Seurig and Baumann say it is not relevantto their investigations. The numbers were used as ratios in prehistoricastronomy, similar to the numbers of the Zodiac.

Now we have to deviate from the material presented from other places andinsert various dreams and writings which point to the fact that we are alreadyin the transition between Pisces to Aquarius.

A few days ago, I found a great connection in the quatrains ofNostradamus. It is inCentury 4, Quatrains 28-33.


When Venus will be covered by the sun,
under the splendour will be a hidden form
Mercury will have exposed them to the fire,
by a rumour of war will be affronted.


The hidden sun eclipsed by Mercury
will be placed only second in the heavens.
Hermes will be made the food of Vulcan
the sun will be seen pure, shining and golden.


More than eleven times the Moon will not want the Sun
both raised and lessened in degree.
Put so low that one will sew little gold;
after famine and plague the secret will be discovered.


The moon, in the middle of the night over the high mountain
the young wise man alone with his brain has seen it
Invited by his disciples to become immortal
his eyes to the south, his hands on his breast, his body in the fire.


In those times and place that meat gives way to fish
the common law will be made in opposition
The old order will hold strong, then removed from the scene
then all things common among friends put far behind


Jupiter joined more to Venus than to the Moon
appearing in a white fullness.
Venus hidden under the whiteness of Neptune
struck by Mars by the engraved wand.

This concerns the theories of alchemists about the sun (sulfur), the moon(salt), and Mercury (quicksilver). The glyphs on the corners of the triangleof Barbury Castle Crop Circle which appeared in 1991 are said to parallelthese alchemical signs.

Their work involved the attempt to transmuting elements, such as leadinto gold, and finding a substance that gave eternal life. This became centeredon cinnabar, the Hell Fire Stone, which is the ore of mercury, sulfuricsulfide.

I believe it is symbolic of reaching the Trinity level of the Christ-Self,and eternal life.

The Age of Aquarius ..The New Age, refers to the Second Coming of Christwhich occurs when one works to attain the Christ-Self Consciousness.

Another symbol of the New Age .. Aquarius - is the story of King Arthurreturning which refers to the Second coming of the Christ. This is connectedto the Grand Cross in the Sky when we have theTotal Solar Eclipse on Aug.11, 1999 which occurs at 11:11 a.m. in Cornwall, England. Morelinks about this and the King Arthur story are here:King Arthur and the HolyGrail

Nostradamus also said in C10, Q74 - 'Theyear of the great seventh number accomplished, it will appear at the timeof the games of slaughter, not far from the age of the great millennium,when the dead will come out of their graves.' (this seems to be a metaphorabout the death/rebirth of changing, transforming).

There were six steps on the ratchet/Mercury spiral of Barbury Castle CropCircle. The angle from the center of the triangle to the southwest cornerwas at 120 degrees. From that point to the center of the ratchet, it was108 degrees, a mythical/Gematrian number. 120 is a tetrahedral point. 120x 108 = 12,960, six raised to the fourth power times ten, and half the precessionnumber. Divided by the six arcs, it is 2,160, six to the third times ten,and the number of years in one Zodiac Age.

There was an additional clue in the date the pattern appeared, July 17,1991. Read Genesis 8:4, where the Ark landed on the 17th day of the 7th month.Blavatsky tells how the Patriarchs represent Zodiac signs. For example, Judahis Leo. In Genesis 49:9, he is called a lion's welp, and he stoops down likea lion and lioness. (i. e., like a Sphinx). Noah is Pisces. These are strongclues that our Age is coming to an end, and Aquarius is near. (if not alreadybegun). The Sphinx may well represent the same thing, that is, the Ages fromLeo through Pisces, and the beginning of Aquarius.

About six months after I realized the number connection in Barbury CastleCrop Circle, a man at work told me a dream. He was in an airliner drivenon a highway by a water treatment plant operator named, Andy. There was adetour because of construction. Then, he was with his boss, an engineer,and a woman. They were planning to install a new transformer at the watertreatment plant, under a grill. The woman whispered something into the engineer'sear.

This is a form of the Trinity, I have found a number of times in dreams.It is the Triple Male Trinity with the combined consorts as the single feminineDeity, or First Power. Together, the make the Perfect Four. The (real life)boss's name in this dream translates to 'the guardian of knowledge).

I asked if the dreamer knew which highway he was on. He said, yes, itwas the highway that runs from Oakdale (California, about 20 miles from hishome), toward Yosemite. That section of highway is where highways 120 and108 RUN TOGETHER!

I had another dream in which I was helping disabled people to repair theirlamps (the light of Second Coming of Christ) and the parts place was on 108thSt.

Recently I had a dream in which the Old Woman (the Yuga in power) wasgoing to be deposed and they wanted me to become the new goddess along withthe Old Woman's two daughters. The Triple goddess is representativeof the consorts of the Triple Male which is also the Trinity. I havehad numerous dreams about the Triple goddesses and the Triple males withinthe last year. (1997-1998)

Another dream was one of the Old Woman who brought in her young grandchildand turned her over to me before she fell over dead and the little childwas asked to name all the animals like Adam had in the Garden of Eden. Another sign that a New Age was coming in.

At the same time, I and many other people have had numerousWATER DREAMS in whichthe water was either being spilled, or roaring up on shore of the ocean anda recent one in which I had to measure the rain which was beginning to fallin a fine mist but would ultimately accumulate to 71 inches. I had to quicklyput up the tube that would measure that rain before it got any heavier.

This all leads me to believe the the transition has already begun of thetransformation from the Age of Pisces to the Age of Aquarius. One cansee this from the numerous web sites about the New Consciousness which peopleare attaining and of the Awakening that is occurring all over the globe.Dreams which show theawakening of people arenumerous as well.

With the coming of the Age of Aquarius, we will see a transition fromthe patriarchal institutions and religions to those which are run by the'feminine principle' and influence which teach that free thinking, creativity,intuition, are foremost, and that the education and nurturing of the childrenand the enhancement of the quality of life for all people will be uppermoston the agenda.

The sign of Aquarius is two parallel lines of waves, Themeaning of this sign is 'the dissolution of forms,' it does not representwater as one might expect. Aquarius is an air sign, and is the 'waterbearer'. The forms that may be dissolving under the influence of thepatriarchal systems of government, church, and family. The waves thatare dissolving them are the figurative waters of the Holy Spirit, the Spiritof Truth. This truth is on the airwaves, the waves of mass communicationand the free press, which have made our globe, the Earth, into a village.The artificial barriers of nation, race, and creed, are breaking down, allowingindividuals to see themselves as one flesh with all creation. The space flightsof recent decades have enabled us to see 'from a distance' our whole planetas it really is with no fences, no barriers, no walls, no lines of demarcationbetween one or the other.

Our entire history has been steeped in Astrology from as far back as wecan go in written language. The studies have been couched in symbolism overthe years so that it could be practiced in safety outside of the patriarchalreligions which attempted to wipe out everything that didn't conform to theirpower and authority.

In the Middle Ages during the time of Pisces which symbol was of two fishesgoing in opposite directions, the study of alchemy was not primarily thesearch for a metallurgic formula to turn lead into gold, but refer to thetransmutation of a natural person into a spiritual person. The Gospel tenetsare of service and sacrifice. The transformed person is often equated withwisdom, and the sacred form of holiness/wholeness.

With the coming of Aquarius, we will find that the institutions of theword will be reunited with the feminine counterpart which has been missingand this reunion results in the blessings of joy, and fertility of the unionbetween the two, which will spread to family and community. The woundednessof the past will be healed and transformed.


About Vedic Prophecies

By Bhaktitirtha Swami

Several years ago I got a very desperate call from one of the directors ofthe NBC Television Network program on 'Prophecies.' They requestedinformation on our Vedic tradition for their program. They were particularlyinterested in millennium prophecies. I explained to the director the differencebetween assorted types of psychics and clairvoyance in contrast to one who isconnected with a transcendental heritage that is endowed with various siddhis(mystic powers), which includes prophecy. I explained further that allprophecies are somewhat secondary to the Vedic prophecies. The Vedasare the oldest scriptures in the world dealing with such subject matter. Theyare reliable and authentic because several of the prophecies in the Vedasare given to humanity by God or by his specially empowered, fully realizedambassadors. Not only do these ambassadors perceive past, present, and future,but they are distinctly enlivened in making or arranging for the future.Uniquely, I explained, the Vedas are not limited to this universe orplanet. Given that many future events are happening or have happened already onother planets and will later manifest on this planet, it is very easy for suchevents to be accurately explained or described by the Vedas and by bonafide followers of the Vedic tradition. I sent them a volume of the Srimad-Bhagavatam(Bhagavat Purana) on predictions, written by the great teacher HisDivine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada. Although authentic, itdid not address sufficiently the millennium concerns in the way they desired.Furthermore, I could understand they needed more preparation to appreciateproperly this gem I had sent them.

As I look back at this encounter, my regret is that I did not have thiswonderful little book by my colleague, Stephen Knapp, to give them. Stephen hasdone a great service by painstakingly putting together such important propheciesfrom the Vedic tradition so that those who are familiar, as well as the novice,will reflect on world prophecy from the most sacred and authentic scripturesknown to humankind. The Vedas give predictions that extend throughoutall planets and all traditions.

According to Indian philosophy, there are 10 pramanas (differentways of knowing truth). They are:

1. Arsa--a statement of an authoritative sage or Demigod.

2. Upamana--comparison (something like something else).

3. Arthapatti--presumption due to some other known fact.

4. Abhava--absence (perceiving the object's absence).

5. Sambhava--inclusion (a larger quantity includes a smaller).

6. Arthya--tradition.

7. Cesta--gesture or symbols (someone making a 'V' sign ormudra gesture).

8. Pratyaksa--direct perception.

9. Anumana--inference (based on generalized experience derived byreason or deduction).

10. Shabda--sound (revealed knowledge).

The last three are the only ones accepted by transcendental scholars and holymen like Jiva Goswami and Madhavacarya. Number ten, shabda pramana,revealed knowledge of the Vedas from superhuman sources, is the supremesuperior method. In one of my books, Spiritual Warrior: Uncovering SpiritualTruths in Psychic Phenomena, I sometimes rely on anumana, which isinferior to shabda. In The Vedic Prophecies: A New Look into theFuture, the author relies almost exclusively on shabda pramana forelucidating prophecy. What a wonderful offering! By this approach, Stephen givesthe reader information about the prophecies that have already happened, thebeginning of Kali-yuga (the last age--the age of quarrel), the changes duringthis age, the special age of enlightenment (the Golden Age) in Kali-yuga, thenext incarnation of God, and the destruction of the world. After such an intensepresentation, he refreshes us by taking the reader on a tour of many holy placesin India, as many of the great prophecies are connected with these holy placesand the saints associated with them. Even the author's explanation of theFederal Reserve System helps the reader to get a clearer understanding of howsome of the evil effects of Kali-yuga are already fully operational.

Let us investigate a few millennium concerns in this Kali-yuga. Nostradamusproclaimed that in July, 1999 a great King of Terror would come from the sky.Edgar Cayce proclaimed that Japan would slide into the Pacific Ocean,earthquakes would destroy California, coastal areas would flood, and New Landswould appear. It is predicted by psychics affiliated with Buddhism that Buddhismwill last for only 2,500 years. Buddhism has been in existence for 2,500 years.Also, it has been predicted that Tibetan Buddhism will end some time after thethirteenth Dalai Lama has been dethroned. He has been dethroned. Psychicpyramidologists report that the turns and measurement of the Great Pyramid atGizeh predicts the end of present civilization in 2001. The decline is said tohave started in 1965. The Aztecs and Hopis predict the coming of a New Agewithin the next decade. Islam proclaims it will last until man sets foot on themoon. (Have we or have we not gone to the moon?) Jeanne Dixon and RuthMontgomery predict a world holocaust in 1999, a Pole shift, etc. Gordon-MichaelScallion predicts serious earth changes and a new era for humankind in the nextseveral years. At Fatima, the predictions proclaim holocaust, earth changes, andthe dawning of a new era in the near future. From the Bible in Revelations, manythings are described about the destruction of civilization.

The author presents from the Bhavishya Purana, the oldest scriptureon predictions and most reliable in the world, that a great global tribulationand disaster will begin in May, 2000 A.D. It is the same Purana thataccurately predicted the coming of Jesus, Mohammed, Buddha, etc. Also,information is given from the Brahma-vaivarta Purana where Krishnatells Ganga Devi that there will be a Golden Age within the Kali-yuga that willstart 5,000 years after the beginning of the age of Kali-yuga. It will last for10,000 years, i.e., 15,000 years into the age of Kali the full force of Kaliwill manifest. We are considered to be in the first phase of this Golden Age,for Lord Krishna departed 5,000 years ago. Therefore, millennium predictionscoincide with Krishna's message.

Stephen does not leave us with the dismal effects of this age, but heexplains how to get free of the influences of Kali-yuga, how spiritual awarenesswill spread around the world, and, most important, how a new species of humanitywill evolve.

I quote the author in Chapter Five:

'There will be a higher and progressive energy shift, as predicted bythe Vedic scriptures, and it is already in progress. In this cycle, theplanetary changes, whether they appear to be good or severe, will be a cleansingprocess to help bring in the needed progress and new species of humanity, atleast while the Golden Age within Kali-yuga continues.

'What this means is that we are at a decisive period. There will be atransformed world. It will be attained by force, through an apocalypse, orthrough cooperation by a planetary awakening.'

If you are particularly interested in doing your part to bring about thisGolden Age, then I am sure you will value this book as much as I do.
