Global Vegans Welcomes the Age of Aquarius and a Transformative Era for Veganism
By Tyler, Global Vegans
After what can only be described as a demanding and somewhat relentless year, it’s no surprise that so many people are clinging on to the hope that 2021 will bring stability and positive change.
Late December is often a time of reflection, but the unique nature of 2020 makes our transition into the new year even more significant than usual.
For much of this year, people have looked to the universe for guidance. Today, we can look specifically at the planets, as the 2020 Winter Solstice coincides with Saturn and Jupiter’s move into Aquarius. As Saturn and Jupiter conjunct for the first time in 20 years, the best in 800 years, we welcome the Age of Aquarius - a transformative era that will encourage us to focus on our spiritual and emotional wellbeing and open our minds to new possibilities. This astronomical event, known as a Great Conjunction, could shift our approach to social equality, including animal welfare, as we move away from traditional structures and adopt a more community-centric approach.
Moving into the Age of Aquarius won’t make an impact overnight. It will, however, guide us as we each adopt a higher level of consciousness and develop deeper connections with the universe. This era of change will not only question the way we care for ourselves, but also affect how we exist within our communities. Saturn and Jupiter will remain in the fixed air sign Aquarius for the majority of 2021, opening up new opportunities to reject the materialistic, conservative age we’ve been governed by and embrace a more progressive approach to society.
It’s impossible to visualise how the world might change over the next year without considering our treatment of animals. As Saturn - the planet of change - and Jupiter - the planet of hard work and activism - move away from the rigidity and oppressiveness of Capricorn into the more free-spirited Aquarius, we hope society will open its mind to the many benefits of Veganism. It will take work and dedication, but if we can use the next year to educate and expand our minds to the possibility of a more harmonious world, 2021 could be the year we see positive results.
As Vegans, we should use this to our advantage. As the new dawn encourages society to consider more progressive ways of living, we must offer a kinder and more compassionate alternative to the current system: an animal-free lifestyle. With Saturn and Jupiter under Aquarius, hard work will reap meaningful rewards - so let’s dedicate time and energy to the fight against animal exploitation.
By enlightening others, we can highlight the ethical issues that deserve our attention in 2021. Of course, this includes the liberation of animals from the inhumane systems that perpetuate and rely on intense suffering. This year has been about identifying the need for change, but the new year will be about making change happen with education and protest.
This need to connect and communicate will also see us develop a greater appreciation for community. Vegans across the globe should embrace this by supporting and promoting dedicated Vegan companies. It’s time to move away from the large corporations that take advantage of plant-based consumers and celebrate cruelty-free businesses that allow communities to thrive.
Moving into a new era may also encourage us to view our psychological wellbeing through a new lens. The events of 2020 - namely, the Covid-19 pandemic and its fallout - have demonstrated the importance of paying closer attention to both our mental and physiological health. The arrival of a new year and a new era is a sign of hope for many, and we should use this time to take a more holistic approach to our health and wellbeing. This means more than just using the ‘self-care’ buzzword; it means enacting real change to bring peace to ourselves and those around us. After an arduous 2020, we deserve it!
This period of education, growth and activism will benefit us all. The next year has the potential to be a transformative time for the Vegan movement in particular, as we leave behind stubborn, outdated perspectives and move further towards a fairer, more equal society. A greater appreciation for the communities we exist within will also help us leave behind some of the most challenging aspects of 2020, including the health anxiety and feelings of isolation spurred by the Covid-19 pandemic.
At Global Vegans, we’re excited to see what the Age of Aquarius brings. Here’s to a new year and a new era!
Advert; If the age of Aquarius resonates with you and/or you feel in the need for an emotional boost then please read on .... this is a product we believe in so we are paying it forward and helping a Vegan who is trying to help others......
Hope all is well with you all. As we (finally) begin to turn the page on 2020 we all could use some true, sustained happiness and to work on our personal growth and enlightenment.
To help guide us on that path, celebrity hypnotherapist and spiritual teacher Cynthia Morgan has the announced the debut of her new app, HappiSeek, on December 21st. Cynthia’s techniques have proven to be highly successful in transforming the lives of thousands, including many of Hollywood’s elite. She also runs Desert Reset, a 100% plant-based spiritual retreat located in beautiful Joshua Tree, California.
The HappiSeek app leads seekers through a series of ten “doors” which correspond to the ten characteristics of an enlightened person.
The confusion and fear caused by the pandemic has led to a huge rise in meditation and enlightenment apps. What sets HappiSeek apart from ones such as Calm or Headspace is that Cynthia’s hypnotherapy techniques guide each seeker on a personalized journey of self-discovery, greater enlightenment and, yes, sustained happiness.
The app’s debut on December 21st coincides with The Great Conjunction, a day where stargazers will be able to see Jupiter and Saturn appearing to merge and form a four-pointed star. Astrologists, spiritualists and mystics also believe this convergence ushers in a new era of enlightenment, one that fosters freedom, acceptance, medical and scientific progress and new advancements in connectivity through technology and spirituality.
Available for both iOS and Android, the app can be purchased for $29.99 per month for the first 12 months or $199.99 for a yearly subscription. There is a lifetime pricing offering of $399. Those who wish to experience the app can sign up for a free introductory hypnotherapy session.
