An Astrological Guide to Prosperity in the Aquarian Age

Prosperity in the Aquarian Age

We are currently in the beginning years of the long anticipated Age of Aquarius, which has also been referred to as the Golden Age of Enlightenment for Humanity. In astrological terms, the new Aquarian Age is a 2000+ year period of enlightenment and prosperity here on Earth.

During the first years of the Aquarian Age, an increase in the frequency of consciousness will occur worldwide. This frequency increase will continue until humanity is stabilized in a higher dimension. Some refer to this higher frequency as the 5th dimension, or 5D.

In this article I’m inspired to share my astrological perspective of the current shifts that we’re going through and how they’re directly related to our transition to prosperity in the new age. To understand the emphasis on prosperity we can look to Uranus. Uranus, as the ruler of the Aquarius, is one of the main driving forces of the transition to the Aquarian Age. Since Uranus is currently moving through Taurus, one of the first shifts humanity will experience is toward a more sustainable global financial system.

An astrological perspective offers a more clear understanding of the significance of the Aquarian Age and how it is related to prosperity. This article will cover three significant issues: When the Aquarian Age began; where we currently are in the process; and how to prosper during the global transition.

The Significance of the Zodiac Ages

Precessional CycleEach zodiac sign holds a unique energy that has been correlated to a longer frame of reference within the zodiac cycle. This longer zodiac cycle is a 2160-year period that holds a general archetypal theme related to that sign.

Because of a predictable wobble in the earth’s axis, the orientation of the zodiac constellations in our sky changes over time. This is why approximately every 2,000 years our orientation to the sky moves into a new zodiac sign and we experience the birth of a new energetic age.

Since ancient times, the traditional marker of this effect has been to observe the constellation stars that rise at the vernal (spring) equinox. As the diagram shows, the precession cycle is moving the vernal equinox sunrise location of the constellation stars in a reverse direction through the zodiac.

Currently at sunrise on spring equinox we’re moving from the constellation of Pisces into Aquarius. This is the precessional marker that indicates we are moving from the age of Pisces into the age of Aquarius.

2012: The Aquarian Age is Born

The exact beginning of the Aquarian Age has been debated by astrologers for some time. The majority of the evidence is mapped to several astrological events that began in 2012 and have all converged since then in a remarkable manner. These events include: the ending of the Mayan calendar, the Dec 20, 2012 initiation of the Aquarian Age, the historic Capricorn conjunctions, and Pluto entering Aquarius.

December 2012 – The End of the Mayan Calendar

By most calculations, 2012 marked the conclusion of the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar, also referred to as the Mayan calendar. A New Age interpretation held that the year 2012 marked the start of a period during which Earth and its inhabitants would undergo a positive physical and spiritual transformation.

Various astronomical alignments and numerological formulae were proposed for this date. For many people following the Mayan calendar, the winter solstice on December 21, 2012 marked the official beginning of the new era called the Aquarian Age.

Astrology ChartDecember 20th, 2012 – A Key Astrological Alignment

The astrological alignment on Dec 20, 2012 is an important milestone indicating the official beginning of the Aquarian Age. The alignment on this date has several significant markers, including the Sun at 30° Sagittarius and the Moon in an exact conjunction with Uranus at 5° Aries.

Both of these Sabian archetypes suggest that the Sun and Moon were in perfect alignment to activate the energies that could initiate the beginning of the Aquarian Age. This alignment occurred only hours before the Winter Solstice of 2012.

ARCHETYPE: Supreme universal values that have been working as a precursor within the community of Light, give way to a new era humanity and the golden age of enlightenment.
COMMENTARY: This is the manifestation of spiritual ideals that become manifested in the physical realm. When the individual is ready to live life as a being of Light, a new era opens up with the promise of a new capacity to embody what was previously only an ideal. As consciousness expands to the point of divine integration, the frequency of Light expands throughout the collective and a new era of enlightenment is born.

ARCHETYPE: The capacity to ascend to a new dimension.
COMMENTARY: The concept of “to fly or elevate” beyond traditional points of reference is symbolized as one’s capacity to reach for, and attain, a higher dimension of consciousness. When desire is fulfilled at the highest level it allows the individual to become more than what was previously thought possible. A new dimension of consciousness within the collective can lead to a new dimension of reality or even a new era.

Both of the these potent archetypes indicate the coming of a new era in which a golden age of enlightenment is born.

The First Decade 2012 - 2022

Throughout the first decade of the shift to the Aquarian Age we have witnessed a dramatic increase in planetary frequencies. This continual increase has been astrologically verified through our ongoing investigation of the lunar cycles since 2012.

With these increased frequencies we have also witnessed a world-wide resistance to these expansions in consciousness, especially from the Capricorn structures that hold power and authority. As we come to the end of the first decade we can objectively see a world in which there is less freedom, less opportunity, and more restrictions.

During this time of increased restrictions we have observed a consistent and continual dismantling of the old social structures and systems. This includes dramatic changes in our health systems, financial and economy restructuring, energy restructuring, worldwide censorship, and the consolidation of power and authority.

In astrological terms, this huge transformation of society is due to Pluto’s transit through the final degrees of Capricorn, with a dramatic increase in 2020 during the historic Capricorn conjunctions.

The Historic Capricorn Conjunctions of 2020

A significant aspect of the shift to the Aquarian Age began in January of 2020 with a series of conjunctions in Capricorn involving Pluto, Saturn and Jupiter. These conjunctions triggered a last ditch attempt for the control of the planet. While these powerful planets were transiting the final degrees of Capricorn, the shadow aspects of the conjunctions enabled a global power-grab. It is no accident that these historic conjunctions coincided with the beginning of the pandemic.

At that time, the historic conjunctions propelled the necessary dismantling that we are still experiencing today. Pluto in Capricorn continues to have a dramatic outcome, forcing the personal impacts of control systems on each of us. The effects of Pluto have been to accelerate the impacts of control, thereby hastening this historic transition into our next era. (These historic conjunctions were written about extensively in the Lunar Journal publications during 2020.)

Pluto Enters Aquarius in March 2023

Pluto will enter Aquarius for the first time on March 23 of 2023. Until that time Pluto will continue to transit the final degrees of Capricorn. We will undoubtedly witness the continuing collapse of the Capricornian structures that are unable to hold the higher frequencies of the Aquarian Age.

Once Pluto enters Aquarius, we can expect to see an acceleration of the old systems crumbling, as the remnants of the old systems of power and control continue to dismantle. This will coincide with the initiation of new systems, including political and financial systems that are designed to better serve humanity as a whole.

Where We are in the Global Transition

During the current period of intensity and change, astrological principles can help us understand how to align with the positive energies behind all of the changes in our world.

During this time of global transition, Saturn (in Aquarius) and Uranus (in Taurus) are working together. The current square between these two planets indicates a necessary realignment of values world-wide. As Uranus is increasing the frequency within all Saturnian structures, this frequency increase is shaking loose anything that isn’t compatible with the higher-frequency consciousness of the Aquarian Age.

The job of Uranus is to creatively change the internal structure of everything to be able to hold a higher frequency. If a Saturn structure isn’t able to hold or adapt to the new frequencies, then it crumbles. In our current global situation this could be applied to many, many types of Saturnian structures, including our current systems of government, as well as the world financial system and our beliefs around money and prosperity.

We live in an exciting era of world history. The Aquarian Age is moving ahead at full speed, regardless of who’s ready and who’s not. It’s prudent to recognize that the dismantling and restructuring of our financial institutions is a necessary step in this global realignment to the new era.

As we move into the Aquarian age all of the world’s financial institutions will need to be restructured in order to create the necessary alignment with principles of sovereignty (Uranus) for all of humanity. During this time of transition it will be important to find practical ways (Taurus) to protect our wealth.

The Astrology of Precious Metals in the Aquarian Age

The current astrology trends suggest that a world-wide financial readjustment is about to take place. An important indicator of the coming changes involves Uranus (ruler of the Aquarian Age) in Taurus.

Taurus represents that which has true value. In terms of currency, this is why Taurus represents money that’s connected to physical assets like gold or silver. As Uranus continues to transit Taurus we will see precious metals play a huge role in all new financial systems. Our recent lunar eclipse conjunction with Uranus on Nov 8th, 2022 was further indication that the timing for moving into precious metals is now.

There are several astrological factors at play. Capricorn and Saturn rule our current financial systems and structures, while Aquarius rules the new technological advancements in the world’s financial system. Uranus rules the higher frequency of precious metals (gold, silver, and platinum) and Taurus rules value. With Uranus transiting Taurus, it’s only a matter of time before precious metals become more scarce due to a predictable spike in value.

With the Aquarian Age taking root in our everyday life, you can expect both Uranus and Pluto to have a huge impact on the new financial systems that are currently being built behind the scenes and outside the purview of the public.

With Uranus in Taurus, the collapse of our Saturnian financial systems (Saturn in Aquarius) is a natural process of the Aquarian Age. The new financial systems that are currently in the final stages of development will include gold and silver as tangible assets backing the new system. In the meantime, gold and silver will prove to be a viable medium to hold and protect our wealth during the coming phase of transition.

Prosperity During the Aquarian Age Transition

The golden age of Aquarius has been seen as a new age of prosperity for the entire world. It’s important to emphasize that we’re talking here about new Aquarian systems based on humanitarian values for all, and not a totalitarian ‘new world order’. In order for a new era of enlightenment and prosperity to emerge, the old systems that are holding humanity back need to completely collapse.

Our current money supply is built on a fiat monetary system, meaning that our money isn’t backed by any physical assets like gold or silver. Our current trend of inflation has been created by design to collapse the current money system which is unsustainable. This must occur in order for a new and better financial system to emerge.

The data from current economic trends clearly demonstrates how rapidly our physical financial systems are collapsing. This information isn’t readily available in the U.S. A resource that I personally use for tracking ongoing global financial trends is an aggregate website of current financial articles:

From an astrological point of view we are firmly in the transition zone that’s rapidly moving toward a new financial system. To support this shift both Uranus and Aquarius contain elements of revolutionary and radical or unexpected development within their archetypes. Wealth in the early stages of the Aquarian Age transition will come from understanding the Taurian value of precious metals.

Protecting Your Wealth During the Global Shift

I’m incredibly inspired about our transition into the golden age of Aquarius. On a personal level it’s very rewarding to have the opportunity to work with individuals during this time, as each of us makes the necessary adjustments and realizes the practical implications of our current transition.

In speaking with clients over the past year it’s become clear to me that the information about the immanent changes in our financial system isn’t readily available. Most of us aren’t prepared for the personal impacts this transition will have.

As a result of following these trends for several years, in combination with my understanding of astrology, I have come to the conclusion that the best solution to stability during this time is to protect our wealth with precious metals.

I am not a financial expert, but I do have a clear astrological picture of what’s occurring in the financial world, and this topic is a favorite hobby of mine. I’ve been following these trends for several years. I’m inspired about the ways in which precious metals can create a stable and viable means of support for each of us during the coming period of transition.

If you’re interested in what I’m doing and why, I have created a website that shares more about the importance of precious metals in the Aquarian Age. For those of you who are interested in finding out more on this topic, please visit

I wish you well during these times of change. I look forward to hearing from you and answering any questions you may have.
