Dear Brothers and Sisters
The year 2020 is coming to an end and has been a challenging year for everybody. For most of us the virus itself was not so challenging but all the restrictions on our usual life are nerve wrecking for just about anybody. Babaji has given us clear warnings many times in His 14 years walking amongst us and we knew that something big was coming down at a certain point and it would be easy and sweet. Instead of focussing on all the troubles in our life’s or around in the world let’s take a global view and see that an enormous change is taking place, a shift in consciousness that has not been seen in recorded times. We can speculate but we cannot really even understand what that is with our present reasoning and we are here in this period of time to be part of it. The beginning of a new time is happening now. Yes we have our daily problems of all sorts but is that not looking different in that Light ?
This shift is not coming from one day to the next but we do have a very important date coming up in a few days. Something any spiritual minded person should give attention to, celebrate and welcome this moment in time. People have been talking (and singing) about the dawning of the Age of Aquarius for decades now, and many astrologers believe that the monumental “great conjunction” talking place on December 21, 2020 is the cosmic event that’s officially heralding it in. On that date, the two largest planets in the solar system, Jupiter and Saturn (which are known as the greater benefic and greater malefic planets, respectively) will align in the sign of Aquarius for the first time in nearly 400 years. In case you are not interested in astrology I will not bother you with the specifics and leave some of that info at the end. However this is a big moment in time that we should commemorate!
It may be hard with everybody in different time zone’s around the world to to a simultaneous collective action. I am no expert also but I’d like to suggest we welcome this big moment each in our own way by taking some time for Puja, Havan and Japa. Many of us may not have access to Havan, perhaps for some around the world even puja is not so easy but no body has valid reasons not to do Japa and call the Divine presence on earth. Calling Divine presence, Divine harmony to our planet and to our beings is what needs to take place and as a devotee it is our joy and duty to do our part in whatever way we can like a soldier in the Lords army of Light. This really always and every day but there are particular moments in time where we have to make space to give this our full attention in calling the Divine into our midst to elevate humanity into a higher consciousness. The Lord will do it and we welcome Him on 21 December as much as you can !
Om Namah Shivaya

Some astrological explanations about this time for those of you interested ;
Age of Pisces spanned from approximately 0 to 2000
After 2000 years of wars and military development, a different approach was needed.
As the Age of Pisces emerged, humanity came to the understanding that the ego development (from the Age of Aries) was not enough; and that the ego must be channeled through something greater.
The Age of Pisces introduced the concepts of surrender, compassion, kindness, charity, empathy, and sacrifice.
The warrior-hero ideal of the Aries age evolved into the transcendent ideal of the saint. The Age of Pisces has been the age of great world religions: Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism.
As with any astrological age, the animal symbolism is strikingly literal. The symbol of Christians is the fish. Jesus’ disciples were fishermen.
At the heart of Jesus’ (and other religious leaders) teachings, was the idea that we should love each other because we are all ‘one’, and because to hate someone, meant to hate oneself.
Jesus initiated the age of Pisces with his sacrifice; it was through sacrifice that our “sins” were washed away. Pisces indeed is connected to the symbols of “sins” or “karmic baggage”, but also, with the opportunity to be released and redeemed from these through sacrifice and surrender.
The symbol of “Pisces” is two fish that swim in different directions, yet they are tied together by an umbilical cord. This image is a symbol for the “ego” and the “soul” that have different agendas, yet are part of the same ‘whole’.
The higher purpose of the Age of Pisces is understanding that separation is just an illusion and that we can become ‘whole again’ when we reconcile the Ego and the Soul, or the YIN and YANG parts of our psyche.
This process of reconciliation is not easy, but it’s only when we find our inner unity, that we will be able to step into the Age of Aquarius with awareness.
Age of Aquarius (2000-4000)
As long as the ego is separate from the soul, we won’t have freedom and progress (Aquarius’ higher manifestation), but instead will have division and will continue to attempt to use machines (weapons, robots, or the internet) to justify one side of the story – either “the ego” or “the soul”.
However, sooner or later, at the end of this ‘cosmic battle’, when we’ll reconcile the YING and the YANG, and we will eventually find a “new Renaissance” – or the triumph of Aquarius’ highest values: humanitarianism, knowledge, reason, innovation, and people who work towards a greater goal.
As we are shifting from the Age of Pisces into the Age of Aquarius, we will learn that each individual is important – not as an amorphous mass easy to maneuver (Age of Pisces).
Every single one of us is born for a reason, and we all can bring our own contribution to the development of society. Every single one of us can make the world a better place.
Aquarius is the opposite sign from Leo. Leo is what makes us unique. Leo is the creator, the leader. Aquarius takes Leo’s unique qualities to the “next level” putting them into a higher context.
“Me” is put into the use of “We” – so that we can create something much greater than the sum of individual efforts. But of course, to get to “We”, we need to acknowledge each person’s unique qualities.
In Greek mythology, Aquarius is Prometheus, the Titan God that stole fire from the Gods and gave it to humans. The fire is, of course, a symbol for the light of knowledge, but also, quite literally, Aquarius is a symbol for electricity and other types of renewable energy.
During this new Age, we can expect new types of energies to be discovered. Other likely developments are artificial intelligence, space travel, and connections with other forms of life.
Aquarius is the most global sign of the zodiac – it rules networks and communities based on a mutual vision. In the next 2000 years, there’s no more place for top-down, hierarchical cultures or extreme political doctrines.
Aquarius is a democratic, egalitarian sign; the types of top-down systems that have dominated our society in the last millennia will simply cease to work.
The Age of Aquarius will come with a completely different “operating system” – something we haven’t seen yet… at least in the last 26.000 years.
We have, of course, started to witness the influence of the Age of Aquarius already since the late 18th century, with the discovery of Uranus (Aquarius’ modern ruler) which also coincided with the discovery of electricity.
These Aquarian influences have since then intensified, especially in the last 50 years.
