Much has been said about the new age of Aquarius that will begin the 4th of February, 1962, between two and three in the afternoon. Some assume that the new age has already begun, but this assumption is false; the new era will begin on the 4th of February, 1962.
The seven ruling genii of the seven planets—the Moon, Mercury, the Sun, Mars, Jupiter, Venus, and Saturn—shall meet at a cosmic congress at the aforementioned hour. There will be an eclipse of the sun and moon at that hour, visible in some places of the Old World. This event will be a sort of congregation of celestial traffic in the constellation of Aquarius. Thus, the new era shall begin with that event. The concrete cosmic facts are what speak; the cosmic event of the 4th of February, 1962, is only repeated every two thousand, one hundred and sixty years, in a particular constellation, each time that a new era begins.
Thus, 1962 will be the first year of Aquarius. All the brothers of the Gnostic Movement should date their letters according to the new era. The cosmic event of 1962 will initiate many catastrophes in different parts of the world.
Planetary congress on February 4th, 1962 that occurred under the influence of the constellation of Aquarius, which marked the beginning of the new era.
The Age of Pisces
The age of Pisces that ends on the 4th of February, 1962, was the age of dogmatic Christianity struggling against atheist materialism. If we observe the sign of Pisces, we see two fish, duality, the struggle between two opposing ideologies: spiritualism and materialism in total battle, the church and the state at war, science and religion in conflict.
The fish that lives under the waters and is carried by the currents is instinctive and brutal, like the people of the Piscean age. The man of that era does not know how to handle nor transmute the waters of life, in other words, the seminal liquor.
The Age of Aquarius
The Aquarian age that will begin on the 4th of February, 1962, is the age of synthesis.
In the sign of Pisces, the human being does not know how to handle the seminal liquor, the waters of life. In the sign of Aquarius, a man appears with two pitchers of water, wisely combining the waters at will and with wisdom.
In the new Aquarian age, the human being will adopt the synthesis of all religions. This synthesis is Sexual Magic, and the Christ in substance.
In the Aquarian age, man will know how to transmute the seminal liquor.
In the Aquarian age, man will accomplish marvels in the fields of endocrinology, atomic physics, chemistry, astronomy, astrology, medicine, aviation, etc.
