You read it here first.
A high-tech version of dagnabit.
A new expletive for the New Age.
Must be the Age of Aquarius.
Indeed it must.
We’re either still in the dawning.
Or the thick of it.
The jury’s still out.
The pundits still pondering.
Astrologers still seeking signs from the stars.
It’s only a matter of a couple thousand years.
2,160 years to be exact.
Determining when that period starts is key.
Some say it’s already begun.
Moving in waves.
But far from cresting.
Others say it won’t begin until 2600 AD.
Or 3573 AD.
Make up your mind!
If that’s true, we’ll miss it altogether.
The Aquarian Age means the evolution of humanity.
And telltale signs are already here.
Fellowship of mankind.
Raised levels of consciousness.
Cause and effect.
What goes around, comes around.
Quicker to manifest.
Astronomers say not till 2597 AD.
Astrologers say it already began in 2012.
Let 2011 mark the Year of the Drouth.
The end of the Age of Pisces.
And the beginning of Aquarius (a water sign at that).
When we look up, some of us see stars.
Some see astronomical configurations.
Some see answers in the heavens.
No matter what Age, we’ll hopefully see more rain.
