If you identified with these lyrics this message is for you. If you don’t recognize them, ask your mom or dad. This song, from the musical Hair made popular by the 5th Dimension in the late 60’s was the anthem of our generation. We were the new age. The boomers. The new generation that was going to change the world. With us, there would be peace love and understanding.
“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”
Life happened. Some remained on communes and followed an alternative lifestyle but most of us went into the workforce, had families, careers, established our own businesses. Now here we are at that point that previous generations stopped. Stopped striving, stopped trying, and some would say, stopped living. But not us, we are the new age. We are the boomers who changed the world by our mere numbers. Every decade we changed things from the Sputnik era of education to the economic force of the current economy and our impact on social security and Medicare. just by our sheer numbers we affected all areas of society.
