'Age of Aquarius'

May 16, 2019 8:32am CST
The Age of Aquarius 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 These are some of lyrics of the popular song, "The Age of Aquarius". The 5th Dimension, an American popular music vocal group, sings "The Age of Aquarius" in 1969. This group of singers was originally called themselves as "Champagne Soul". in late 1965 and the following year called themselves as "the 5th Dimension". I remember this when I wrote the topic about the moon. I couldn't understand its lyrics, "when the moon is in the seventh house, and Jupiter aligns with Mars." I found it later that it's an astrological belief. The "Age of Aquarius" is referred to age of love, light and humanity. I don't have the strong grip of that idea, but what I know it's the popular song in 60s during our high school days. We do love singing it group. Any reaction to this especially those who are in their 60s?

Yes, but some of the original had already left the group. You can find them in YouTube to listen to their songs.

@amadeo That's the nature of every band or group of singers. They may be disbanded or one of them goes solo.
