Dawning Of Aquarius



Dawning Of Aquarius 1948 by Aunty Millie Mace:
Jain’s Super-Aquarian Date 4-2-1962.

Astrologers and some Astronomers are excited for a rare planetary event where the two stellar bodies of Saturn and Jupiter, will conjunct and appear as one body of Light. This will happen at 0 degrees Aquarius, in a few days time on the 21st December, 2020. Normally the Saturn/Jupiter alignment happens every 20 years, but in this case, the occulting, meaning the 2 become 1 from our eyesight, has not happened since the C12th medieval times, so it is being hailed as a special event. In the Southern Hemisphere, this is our Summer Solstice, the day with most Light throughout the whole year, worthy of celebration, though in the Northern Hemisphere, this is their Winter Solstice, the day with the least amount of Light. The Solstice peaks at 9:00pm and precedes another prophesized event at 10.30 pm, when Saturn and Jupiter align precisely, foretold by our Original People, represented by Aunt Millie Mace of Uluru, the giant Red Rock Centre of Australia (aka Ayer’s Rock) who claims her people had known about this date of 21-12-20 for many decades. She is asking everyone who supports her ancestral vision, to not gather at the heart of Australia, as they want their privacy to do their own secret ceremonial business, but to connect with the Mother Earth and Father Sky in their own backyard or local area, insisting that we all take our shoes off and feel the ground beneath us, or hug a tree or dip into the ocean or your favourite water-hole.

Auntie Minnie Mace is a storehouse of information both Aboriginal and Egyptian. She knows the secret and origin of the Egyptian hieroglyphs recorded in the Kariong Caves, near Gosford, north of Sydney.
She began by explaining the meaning and significance of the Chinese Ying/Yang symbol. Over twenty thousand years ago, an Egyptian named Shu travelled to China to teach the Chinese about the Yings and the Yangs, the positive and negative aspects of the Universe. (nb: Shu, relates also to the Chinese/Tibetan Magic Square of 3×3 aka “Lo-Shu”, that is the centre of their cosmology/calendar). The Ying Yang symbol, one side black and the other side white, represents a 26,000-year Universal cycle, with each side representing a separate 13,000-year cycle. The dark side is the Universe breathing out; the white side is the Universe breathing in. This 26,000 Universal Cycle is spoken about in many cultures/religions throughout the world. (In Sacred Geometry, this 26,000 year cycle is really the 25,920 year cycle Precession of the Equinoxes).

Auntie Minnie says that in 1948, we moved into the Age of Aquarius. Since that time, the Universe has been in “shunting” mode. On December 21st, 2020, she says the Universe will move out of shunt mode and will begin to breathe in, as we move into the new 13,000-year cycle.
She believes it’s critical that on December 21st, we all focus on sending our Love, Enlightenment and goodwill towards Uluru, because that energy will ripple out into the Harmonic Grid that encircles the Planet. The women ofUluru have been practising for this event for generations, doing the Corroboree to send the energy down into Mother Earth to help her out of this shunting mode she’s been in, so that the Universe can start coming back towards us. So, when we face Uluru at 9.02pm on December 21st, to send all our Love towards the Rock, we should also focus on seeing the Universe coming towards us.
Auntie Minnie explains the Harmonic Grid thus:

The Eternal Mother is the Moon. The Eternal Father is the Sun.
The electromagnetic waves between the Sun and the Moon filter down and for the Harmonic Grid around the Planet. We’re all connected to that Harmonic Grid through ‘The Silver Cord’ and if there’s a breakdown in the aggregation of atoms that make up our spirit in this body, the Harmonic Grid breaks down. We need a balance between the human and the spiritual aspects of our being to keep things in order.

Auntie Minnie believes that Australia will lead the world into the new Millennium.
“All the cultures of the world have been transplanted here, which was allowed by the Aboriginal Father Spirit Baiame. He allowed the strangers to come to our shores because they brought the English language. Before that we had 600 dialects, and we couldn’t talk to each other for so long. The English language has united us. We need to break down the barriers and share with each other.”

Regarding Auntie Minnie’s 1948 conjecture, to conclude, Jain supports and believes in this prophesy, but offers the rare insight in another more striking date that is the best candidate for the Dawning of Aquarius:
on the 4th and 5th February 1962, 7 planets aligned in Aquarius, all 6 planets closest to the sun and then the moon joined to mark another date that was prophesized by the world famous psychic at the time Jeane Dixon, regarding the 2nd Coming of Christ. In her vision, she saw a pyramid glinting and out of it stepped Akhenaton 1V unite with his beautiful wife Nefertiti who carried in her arms a child whose eyes were full of wisdom and knowledge. Then they walked back into the past leaving the child with a peasant couple who lived by the banks of the Nile.
Jeane Dixon’s vision has Egyptian overtones, and this aligns with Aunt Millie’s prophesy regarding connection with the 7 Hathors (Egyptian cow-earred Goddess of Sound and Frequency). This is the same as the 7 Sisters of the Pleiades constellation, considered to be our Central Sun, that is, our Solar System revolves around another Sun called Alcyone, in Arabic, this means The Centre.
I believe that this Prophesy is a warning for us to stay connected to Nature and Living Systems, as we progress towards a more technological and robotic environment, symbolized by Uranus, the ruler of Aquarius which rules the Space Age.

In 1977 I personally met a Super-Aquarian in Sydney who taught me Astrology and how to hand-draw or caste natal charts; his name was Mark Wattman, a 15 year old boy with 7 planets or stellium in the Aquarian Air signs, he was highly intuitive and all-knowing. We studied together under his astrology teacher Robert Connell who was secretly trying to muster or gather all these gifted children with ulterior motives in the darker realms of magic and ritual!
Whilst having a tea-party at my friend’s house Kim Quirk in the Bondi Junction, her mother a well-known psychic saw 2 crosses in the tea-leaves of our emptied cups and she warned us about this man Robert Connell, to run and protect ourselves. Thus began an innocent journey of meeting other Super-Aquarians, a type of Indiana Jones saga that empowered me with multi-experiences and how to read energy and how to seal my auric field.
Fast-tracking, by 1983, I was living in the Blue Mountains, and promoted the Makaratta or confluence or gathering of these Super-Aquarians, a festival that lead to my first near-death experience in 1984, whilst in the process of releasing ancient mathematical codes. This account will become its own book.
In some other articles, I can share with you more info about Super-Aquarians:
– Astronomers for 3 years prior to this date were all excited about this coming date of 4-2-1962 as it would be a rare total solar eclipse or new moon, permitting direct photography of the face of the sun, to be taken from a high mountain in New Guinea. I have collected many newspapers from the Sydney Morning Herald etc and micro-fiche files from libraries and recorded them in my 36 year old manuscripts.
– Ringo Starr joined the Beatles at this time, and the fame of the Beatles snowballed. (Interestingly, John Lennon’s life was governed by the alignment or conjunction of the Jupiter and Saturn which occurs every 20 years. John was born in 1940, then 20 years later he hit fame in 1960, then 20 years later in 1980 he was shot 5 times in NY).
– Another famous British comedian, Eddie Izzard was born on the 7th February, 1962, and to fully understand the Aquarian mind or sense of humour, you need to watch his antics on stage, absolute brilliance of wit and Genius Mind.
– On Feb 22nd, Pope John XX111 changed the course of Vatican history by releasing a rare Apostolic Decree or Reform, which basically allowed sermons and hymns and texts to be read by the masses in English, and not in the limiting use of Latin language.
– On Feb 24

th the USA satellite, the “Echo” made possible the first transmission of Television and Phone communications.

– In Tibetan Astrology, they consider that your Conception time is more important than your Birth time! If this be the case, Reenah Sun, who manages my Facebook and Instagram Pages, was conceived close to this date.

The Cosmic Story:

The Saturn/Jupiter Conjunction of December 21, 2020

By: Cathy Pagano


Jupiter – Saturn – Moon

On Monday, December 21, 2020 – the Winter Solstice in the northern hemisphere – two planets will come together to form a single star in the sky and we get to see it for the first time in 800 years, when they came together in 1226 at 2* Aquarius, the sign of the Collective mindset.

Every 20 years these two big planets come together to start a new cycle of collective experience, but rarely do we get to see them in the sky. If you’ve been paying attention to them, you’ll know that throughout the summer and fall, they’ve been high in the sky but slowly descending into the west. Now if your skies are clear, you can see them just after sunset in the west. In fact, December 16th you probably saw them quite close to the crescent Moon.

The two planets are Jupiter and Saturn and as you can see below, they could be seen in the daytime sky. These two planets, along with Pluto, have been traveling through the sign of Capricorn for the past year or so, highlighting the need for new collective structures and possibilities as Pluto’s energy of death and rebirth continues to take its toll on our world. This Covid year of 2020 has seen these three planets begin 3 new cycles that will help us restructure our social institutions in the coming years.

2020 has been a heavy, hard time for the whole world, echoed in the heavens by these three planets in the serious, patriarchal sign of Capricorn. But their new cycles will bring an end to patriarchy and a more balanced harmony between the masculine and feminine energies of life. Capricorn can also be imagined as a council of Grandmothers and Grandfathers. The Wise Elders.

We’re about to enter a new phase of human evolution. And the energies will be lighter and more easily handled. There are better days ahead.

Both Saturn (December16) and Jupiter (December 19) will be leaving Capricorn behind and entering Aquarius, where they will meet up on Winter Solstice, December 21st at 1* Aquarius. This is the beginning of a new 200 year cycle in Air signs for these two social planets.

This Grand Conjunction will occur on December 21, 2020 at 9:21am Alaska time, 10:21am PST, 1:21pm EST and 6:21pm GMT.

Besides the Saturn/Jupiter conjunction, we have a Sun/Mercury conjunction at 1-2* Capricorn, bringing the collective Mind online with our goals. The Pisces Moon is conjunct Neptune, inspiring big dreams. Uranus in Taurus is conjunct Black Moon Lilith, awakening us to our most natural, earthy feminine soul needs. Mars is joining Eris, his sister warrioress, making sure that the New Masculine is aligned with the heart. And Venus is waking us up to the truth of Love – that Love is the answer to our most basic desires for community, security and partnership.

But back to the main event. We call Saturn (contraction, concrete reality, responsibility, structure) and Jupiter (expansion, exploration, good luck, benevolence) the social planets because they shape our social paradigm, our outer, shared life in society. These two planets meet every 20 years so we’re at the very tail end of the conjunction of 2000.


For the past 200 years, these planets have come together in earth signs, signaling our concern and preoccupation with the material world. As is fitting for the very end of a cycle, we’re seeing how this attitude toward life is no longer sustainable. We’re seeing the breakdown of an old paradigm that needs to die.


Before the 1800s, these two giants met up in water and then fire signs for 200 years each. So the last time they joined together in air signs was from about 1220 to 1420 CE – the end of the Middle Ages and the beginning of the Renaissance. That’s the energy we’re heading into now.

On Winter Solstice, December 21, 2020 these planets, Jupiter and Saturn, will come within a 16’ arc to each other at 0*29’ Aquarius, the entry point into Aquarius, and perhaps the fertilizing of the Age of Aquarius. These two planets will be so close they might appear as one star.

The Grand Conjunction, beginning a new cycle in a new element, was understood to be an ending and a new beginning by early astrologers. But it is just the beginning. There will be about 6 more conjunctions in Aquarius before it moves on to another air sign.

Before cycles end, there is always a brief moment when the new cycle appears and then it reverts back to the old cycle. We saw that in 1980-81 when Saturn and Jupiter came together in Libra – an air sign. And then in 2000, the cycle reverted back to earth with a conjunction in Taurus. What did we get out of that Libra/ relationship cycle? Well, for one thing, gender differences came out of the closet and new forms of relationship are now part of our society.

Also, it brought us computers and the world wide web – new forms of communication—air signs.

So this Grand Conjunction in Air will be concerned with new forms of communication, ideas, ideals, as well as communities and new technologies. But we have to bring those ideas down to earth and that’s what the upcoming Saturn square Uranus will do. Uranus, the ruler of Aquarius along with Saturn, will challenge us to bring our ideas down to earth/Taurus.

The Sabian symbol for Saturn and Jupiter at 1* Aquarius is: A cubical white temple in the desertThis is a symbol of grounded, deep, experiential mysticism. It is a place of spiritual power which has persisted through millennia. Where things look most dead, that is where we find the spiritual heart of matter. The desert is a place of purification and transformation. This cube grounds in Spirit to Matter.

In sacred geometry, Archangel Metatron, the angel of life oversees the flow of energy in a mystical cube known as Metatron’s Cube, which contains all of the geometric shapes in God’s creation and represents the patterns that make up everything God has made.”

As astrologer Divine Harmony states, these two planets are the Great Teachers – Saturn as the Gatekeeper at the Door/The Life Initiator and Jupiter as the Guru/ Spiritual Guide.

Now that they come together in Aquarius, the sign of collective consciousnessCosmic Mind, telepathy, groups, tribes and communities, technology, of Cosmic Law and Archetypal patterns (Carl Jung said that the Age of Aquarius would be the outpouring of the Archetypal nature of reality), there will be a shift in humanity’s consciousness. Maybe it will also be the Age when we reconnect with our galactic family. But first we have to reconnect to Nature’s Mind, which is our mission for the next few years as Jupiter and Saturn square Uranus, Nature’s cosmic mind, in Taurus.

Instead of falling into duality with these two teachers, we can alchemize their energies by holding the tension of opposites until a new, third transcendent way appears. We have to be able to live in paradox, in a sense of this is truth and also that is true. Maybe if we do this right, the deep divisions between people can be healed, because basically, most people want the same things. We’ve been manipulated and divided by the powers that rule our world so we don’t turn to them and hold them accountable.

One way we hold these opposite energies together is to see spirit (Jupiter) in matter (Saturn). If we start talking to Nature, Nature will start talking back to us. Perhaps then we’ll learn how to heal our world. (Have you seen the documentary Fantastic Fungi?– this is one way we can learn from the natural world.)

But right now, we are still in the chaos of a changing world. It is the silence between our in-breath and out-breath. Now we just need to stay in awe of the beauty of the cosmos and its workings. We, like the Magi in the Christ story, need to follow the star and find the Divine Child within.

People are comparing this conjunction to the Christmas star of Bethlehem. Johannes Kepler, astronomer and astrologer, thought that the Star of Bethlehem was probably a conjunction of Jupiter, Mars and Saturn. I can’t say if that’s true, but I do have an experience of seeing an amazing conjunction of planets on Christmas morning 1970 at about 4 am.

Venus, Jupiter and Mars came together to form such a bright star that there was starlight on the water (my in-laws live on Narragansett Bay). Later, the balsamic Moon in Scorpio rose to join them. It was indescribable and back then, no immediate camera to take a picture. But it lives in my heart and brings me joy.

It heals our hearts when we remember that Nature is alive with magic and beauty.

With this Grand Conjunction in Air, we’re going to be asked to discover how we use our Mind – the great decider. It holds the power to create with our intention. This next year is about discovering what we think, how we think and what habits of thought work against us.

It’s also a time when we need our Artists to bring in the new vision. I’ve been talking about Bards and artists for decades now, wondering why these change agents weren’t as important as they were in the 60s-70s. Music especially is an art of the Air element. We need air to hear the sound of music. Music goes right to the heart of things – that’s why the ancients always talked about ‘the music of the spheres’.

Hopefully, all the arts will be making a comeback, for we are heading into a new Renaissance, which was so focused on the arts as change-agents. Artists can visualize details with great precision and that’s what you need if you want to go into the quantum field and manifest something. So that attention to detail, feeling and visualization is what we need to concentrate on now as we bring in a new paradigm.

Earth’s magnetic field is changing, and so is our own personal field. It’s time to upgrade our consciousness. We are shifting from the old to the new. The old unravels rapidly now, destabilizing the old order. We need the total deconstruction of the old structures and energies so that a new vision and a new way of being begins to manifest and take hold.

Our frequencies are going to manifest more fully – so magnify your values – live them and shine them out as your light. It might even begin to repair the Earth’s magnetic field. And if we maintain a higher frequency ourselves, we’ll connect to those people on our vibrational level.

This Grand Conjunction holds the blueprint of society for the next 20 years. So we are at a seed time. Look at the house in your natal chart where this conjunction is happening for you and know that if you make an intention now, you have time to manifest it in the next 20 years.

Just one more bit of hope for our future. Looking at America’s birth chart, which shows us the energies that birthed the American Revolution and our country, we can progress that chart just like a personal birth chart. Using the July 4, 1776 chart that astrologer Caroline Casey thinks we should work with, one that sets the time at 2:25pm, something amazing turns up.

Progressed 4th of July chart

In a country’s chart, the Moon symbolizes ‘the people’. And in the US progressed chart, the progressed Moon was at 29* Capricorn conjunct Pluto for the past few months. Americans have been through a real death of our belief in our government, as we watch the president and half the people and their representatives refuse to abide by the rules of ‘the changing of the guard’. The end of Capricorn finds us at the end of empire – we are no longer a shining example for the world. We have let ourselves be brought low and now we’re experiencing a death. A death of our ideals as Americans but also a death of the corporate culture of capitalism. But rebirth follows soon after.

Now comes the good part. By Winter Solstice, December 21, 2020, America’s progressed Moon will also be at 1* Aquarius right where this Grand Conjunction is taking place. Perhaps it is a cosmic promise that we will all be looking at and moving toward the future in a more positive way.

Consciousness changes the story. Are you ready to co-create a new story?

It’s time to Evolve.

Warm blessings for this magical Solstice.


St Francis of Assisi explains the creative process this way: “The woman who works with her hands is a laborer; the woman who works with her hands and her head is a craftswoman; the woman who works with her hands, and her heart is an artist.”

May the artist within each of us rise up and create!

And We’re back (part 2).

So, RIHHA is gone, I’m being patient about what lies ahead for me, and people keep reaching out.

I got a few phone calls from folks that wanted to keep the group going. I knew that I was willing to help in some capacity however taking the group over was not in my thought process. And, I guess it never went anywhere cause I never heard any more about it.

After a few months I started thinking about the entity. It kept creeping into my thought process. Was the domain renewed ? Was the Entity renewed ? Was it protected at the State House ? What was to become of the Rhode Island Holistic Healing Association ? I reached out to Susanne Dillon.

We decided to meet and have coffee. My concern was that after 14 years if someone was interested in maintaining the group, we needed to at least keep the entity current with the State. I had taken the bait and the hook was set,… I just didn’t know it yet. All I knew was that I, like many others, just wanted to keep RIHHA going.

So that’s what we did. After doing the research, the running around, the filing with the State, the Fed, and any one else who cared….. the Rhode Island Healing Association was able to breathe again.

Now the work begins. First the website, then the meetings to schedule, the structure, the membership, a new board,….. So much to do !!!


And We are back !!!

After 14 years of service to the Rhode Island Holistic Healing Community, RIHHA is Back, and UP and Running !

It all began in 2003, when two friends Susanne Dillon and Linda Carney thought it would be nice to have a setting of “like-minded” holistic healers to share their experiences gathered from healing sessions, meditations, and energy healings. That inspiration is what created the Rhode Island Holistic Healing Association (RIHHA) in 2004 which has grown into an astonishing community of healers of all kinds that network and share their modalities as well as business ideas.

Linda has since moved out of RI, leaving Susanne as the sole leader of RIHHA.  Under her tutelage, Susanne developed the RI Holistic Healing Awareness Day four years ago to broaden the public’s view on holistic healing modalities and alternative health products.

The 2014 Awareness Day was held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Warwick RI on Sunday October 19. The Grand Ballroom of the Crowne Plaza has been reserved for Sunday, October 18 for the 2015 RIHHA Awareness Day. Concurrent with the rise of interest in alternative healing, the event and the organization membership keeps expanding. Holistic Healing modalities currently represented at RIHHA include: energy healing, shamanic drum healing, Reiki, massage, color therapy, sound healing, aromatherapy, acupuncture, nutrition for wellness, life coaching and much more.

And then in early 2017, we all received this,….


Thursday, January 19, 2017, was RIHHA’s LAST meeting.  We feel 2017 is a year of new beginnings and we are all moving into new, exciting and unique directions. We plan to keep in touch and look forward to sharing our new endeavors as they come to fruition. We hope you keep in touch with us, too!

We want to ‘Thank You’ from the bottom of our hearts for all the support you have given our organization over the last thirteen years. Our lives have definitely been enriched by our time spent together, as we hope our group enriched you as well.

I am happy to share a link to an online activity created by a super group of ‘Holistic Healers’ – one of the coaches is an amazing member of RIHHA – Jim Standish! The group has created 30 fantastic YouTube videos for people to watch for FREE.   I encourage you to register and check them out.

May you all be blessed with continued success in your “holistic healing” undertakings.

Peace & Joy,


Ok,… so I really appreciated the support (says Jim),… now what ? It was RIHHA that gave me the opportunity and support to share my knowledge with other folks, where do I hang my hat now ?

The search was on. I looked at and visited many of the local groups and meetings that supported Holistic Healing and Values. I visited other groups, joined a few “on line” groups, and still did not feel as comfortable as I did in RIHHA. So I just sat with it knowing that if I was patient and listened,… the answer would come. However as we all know the universe answers in sometimes unpredictable ways. Then I visit the RIHHA website and there is only one page standing,…. the page with the note from Susanne and a link to the 30 Day Body, Mind, Spirit Challenge that I did with Peter Schenk. How embarrassing I thought. I had never done anything like that before and the knowledge of “me” being “out there” on You Tube was,… uncomfortable. And yet there I was and here it is (

Little did I know this was only the beginning.
