There is a Chinese proverb which says: “May you live in interesting times”.
I think that pretty well sums it up.
In a few days’ time, on the winter solstice, the precession of the equinoxes (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Axial_precession) comes back to zero after 25,772 years, the solar system will be aligned with the galactic center and the sun will move into Aquarius after having lingered in Pisces for 2.500 years (http://www.share-international.org/archives/Science-tech/sci_rrPisces2Aquarius.htm ). A lot of stuff to which we are fortunate to be witnesses. I remember that in the sixties we speculated about the image of the man pouring out the water over the earth (Aquarius). The idea was that the era of Pisces, which is the era of organized religion, was coming to an end, and true spirituality would be poured out over the human race.
