Early this morning five planets aligned across the early morning sky: Mercury, Venus, Mars, Saturn and Jupiter. At the same time, the Zodiac slipped from Capricorn into Aquarius (January 20 to February 18).
All of this reminded me of opening lines to the the song “Age of Aquarius”from the musical Hair:
“When the moon is in the Seventh House
And Jupiter aligns with Mars
Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars
This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius
Age of Aquarius
( music/lyrics: Galt MacDermot, James Rado, Gerome Ragni)
The pop version from The Fifth Dimension was a family favorite, and this video version is a throwback to the late 1960s:
This little soundtrack for the early morning planet watching can continue through the month of February. For this length of Aquarius, the planets align at dawn.
