As we made our way into the Age of Aries, the Taurian energies would still be present for another thousand years. The group consciousness energies of Taurus would allow the construction of the architectural marvels that we find from the Old Kingdom of Ancient Egypt. This was the Age of the Pyramids that would begin around 2600 BC and last through around 2400 BC when many pyramids were built in Egypt including the Great Pyramid of Giza and the Great Sphinx. These pyramids not only act as burial chambers to bring pharaohs closer to Heaven in the afterlife, the Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx are also aligned with the stars and solstices to harness the power of the sun.

In the once standing Sphinx Temple, laid out on an East to West axis, twenty four pillars are found, each representing one hour in the sun’s daily circuit. During the equinoxes, the sun appears to sink into the shoulder of the Sphinx, and beyond the Sphinx, into the south side of the pyramid of Khafre on the horizon. This symbolizes the pharaoh presenting offerings to the sun god in the temple during the spring and fall, both the most important planting and harvesting times in agriculture. During the summer solstice the sun sets mid-way between the silhouette of the pyramids of Khafre and Khufu his father. The architects that designed the temple, pyramid, and Sphinx, designed them in alignment with these solar events.

Because we were still working together within group consciousness, these monuments could be built exponentially fast using the combined forces of manpower and the ingenuity of our advancing knowledge of how the Heavens moved. The Age of Pyramids and the megalithic time pieces around the world were mostly erected while Taurian energies were present. Man had little to distract himself and thus was still very connected to the Heavens through observation and myths that explained them and their purpose. Towards the embodiment point of the Age of Aries, our collective consciousness began to shift from a group consciousness that allowed such marvels to be built into a more individualized consciousness and patriarchal regard to power and life.

As our collective ego began to strengthen, we began to look more towards ourselves as Gods and rulers and less towards the Heavens. The masculine hero archetype was born, and the warrior of individualization was breaking free of the feminine energy of Taurus into the masculine energy of Aries that brought self-discovery through trials of courage and battle as part of our collective ego development. Near Sumer and the Near East, city states began to war for control of each other. In the sixteenth century, chariot riding groups from the plains of Central Asia swept through Western Asia and Northeast Africa. In Egypt the warring RAMesside dynasty was beginning to flourish, who would expand the empire and fight the Hittites for control of Egypt. During the dynasty of eleven different pharaohs, the Temple of Karnak would be completed which contains an avenue of sphinxes with curly-horned ram’s heads, another physical manifestation of the Age of Aries whose symbol is the ram. The sphinxes at Karnak represent the sun god, Amun-Re and between their paws is a figure of Rameses II, who won a famous battle against the Hittites in 1274 BC. In the Yellow River basin of China, civilization would be locked in a series of warfare from dynasty to dynasty until around 222 BC when it united and became an empire. We had entered the realm of warfare and divided social structure and the downfall of ancient civilization.

In addition to the warring found during this time, we also find civilizations that remained peaceful and were able to create rules and spiritual texts that to this day speak truth. This is part of the balancing of the hologram or collective realities that must be maintained. Babylon was among the great states of the time that did not partake in battle. Mainly due to it being known as the intellectual and spiritual capital of the time. In 1755 BC, The code of Hammurabi, was written in Babylon as a basis for civil, family, criminal and property law. Hammurabi claimed to be granted his rule by the God’s to prevent the strong from oppressing the weak. Near the India/Pakistan border, The Indus Valley Civilization was also flourishing during this time, and we see the beginning of the Ancient Vedas that would begin coming into written form by 1500 BC. The word Veda means wisdom and these Vedas are the oldest written text on Universal Wisdom. Many in the Indus Valley and other places on the globe called themselves, Arians, during this time. Here we see the true meaning of the Arian race to be those that lived and brought wisdom to the collective during the Age of Aries. Eventually, Babylon would fall and the Indus Valley Civilization would be driven from their home due to climate change which dried their main river. The Old Testament of the Bible was put into written form around 1200 BC, during the time when laws and rules were becoming necessary in our collective ego development.

The end of the Age of Aries also brought with it, separation of classes, illiterate peasants and craftsmen, where knowledge of writing and education were reserved for a tiny minority and the military elite of fighting men. It was a time of incredible change in human behavior and our way of viewing our reality. The watery feminine energies of the Age of Pisces would be a much needed breathe of fresh air to help cool off the temperament of the soldier and warrior complex that had begun to dominate our collective consciousness. For the first time, star seeds would incarnate on Earth to bring with them much needed wisdom to assist humanity in moving past the warring soldier to begin to see reality through the heart of the justice as we continued our evolution through the Seven Ages of Man.
