The Magical 1960's
and the Neptune in Libra Generation(1942-1956)

Flower Power: the daisy as a symbol of peace and love and beauty

A Dedication

Something magical occured between 1962 and 1972 which profoundly changed the youth culture in our society. Spawned by the war in Vietnam, the Rock & Roll revolution, and disenchantment with the "system" in general, a counter-war or counter-political rallying occurred among the world's youth, particularly in the West, where such movements are more tolerated. It all came to a crescendo in the lowly village of Bethel, New York, on August 15-17, 1969 where almost half a million people came together in a music/peace/love fest, featuring such rock icons as Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix. A similar event occurred in London's Hyde Park 40 days earlier featuring the Rolling Stones, and others were to follow that same year.

Despite the drugs and the sex, Woodstock's basic message or intent was Peace, Love, and Harmony. Concerts such as Woodstock and the 60's revolution in general asked the basic question "Why can't the world live in peace?" and sent a clear message to the "establishment" or ruling powers that war was not the answer. Unfortunately, this commendable defiance against the status quo did not have the necessary follow-through to succeed and was soon quelled or dissipated. Harsh reality set in and most of the "babyboomers" or flower power children of the 1960's soon settled into the "establishment" or "system" with regular jobs and lives.

The spirit of the 60's, however, lives on. What went wrong? Why didn't it unfold as intended? For one thing, the 60's culture of Neptune in Libra was over-idealistic and lacked the essential knowledge and discipline to overcome both their own and everyone else's shortcomings or weaknesses. The desire for peace is fine, but unless you have the wisdom and knowledge and discipline to maintain it, it will not happen. Also, the powers that be are not interested in peace, and eventually did everything they could to squash the movement. Those who did possess the knowledge and discipline were few, and most were unwilling to expose or sacrifice themselves, so they remained in the background as the driving force. Among these were some of the elite who may have instigated the entire revolution in the first place. This core or elite may in turn have been influenced or guided by the spiritual heiarchy of this planet.

Notable events leading up to the youth revolution were: the end of World War II in 1945, the birth of "Israel" in 1948. The supposed Agarthean dethronement of the "King of the World(Sanat "Satan" Kumara)" also in 1948, the beginning of the so-called space age in 1957, the scientific and technological boom, the nuclear threat, Rock and Roll, the hippie movement and the drug culture, the Aquarian stellium of Feb.1962, and the Uranus/Pluto conjunction of the mid 1960's. These and more led to the anti-war anti-establishment movements of the60's and early 70's

Also, what better generation for the elite and secret societies to manipulate than the Neptune in Libra generation(1942/43-1955/56) who were then in their teens and twenties and who were poets and peace seekers at heart. This generation also had Pluto in Leo which was concerned with the exploitation of love and creativity and entertainment in all its forms.

Another generation is now pursuing the dreams of the flower power generation. These are the sons and daughters of that generation, particularly those who have the planetary configuration of Neptune in Sagittarius and Pluto in Libra(1972-1984). These people are now in their thirties and forties. They are travelers who wish to see no borders or frontiers and have an all-or-nothing attitude when it comes to peace and relationships. These people will die for peace if necessary, and if anyone can bring about a global peace, it is they. Like their parents, however, they are idealists and highly impractical and need our help if they are to succeed in bringing about their dream of a utopia on planet Earth. They will face enormous challenges, as will all of us, and it is hoped this site and its contents will be of help to them.

The significance of the 60's youth rebellion is that it was a direct BAROMETER of our SICK society; a society that puts materialism and selfishness ahead of everything else. The young people saw through this or who were unable to put up with it, dropped out of society and became the hippie culture. Unfortunately, they did not have a real remedy for the ills of society, and so they failed. Today's youth are just as troubled, only they show it in different ways, and today's society is just as sick today, if not more so, than it was in the sixties. Unable to find any real answers to the basic questions of life, young people turn to sex and drugs and drinking and smoking for solace and become just as bad as their predecessors.

If any generation is ever to bring ultimate and lasting peace worldwide it will be at the cost of leaning the truth about ourselves: that we are a lost and drugged and enslaved humanity who needs to be rehabilitated to its wonderful and original divine state. This means learning some horrible truths, as well as some wonderful and incredible possibilities which many of our world leaders know but are unwilling(or unable) to tell us. More importantly, rather than relying on our leaders, we should be learning how to master our own human nature so that we can become true leaders ourselves. War begins inside of us with our own lusts and desires. Conquer these lusts and desires and then you can go on to conquer (peacefully) the rest of the world. The chaos we see in the outer world is a direct reflection of the chaos in most people's inner lives, and until we find that peace and truth within ourselves it is unlikely we will find it without.
