It was still very cold and dark over much of the planet as we entered into the 2,150-year timeline of the Age of Leo. This timeline brought with it the energies to begin growing our collective ego and the courage to come out of the cave and begin coming together in groups. It also brought with it the sun. Our planet goes through natural cycles of climate change as the planet cools and warms, creating ice ages and greenhouse type ages. Unaffected by human behavior, these cycles can run billions of years to hundreds of thousands of years as natural climate changes on Earth. Around 10,000 BC, the planet was undergoing a change in its climate where we began to shift to a warming cycle. A cycle that we are still experiencing today. Although, human behavior has caused climate change to accelerate, which is an effect of time speeding up as a result of the third dimension collapsing.
However, in 10,000 BC, we had gone through the integration phase of the Age of Leo and the sun was now shining on our planet in full force. As a result, the climate began to shift, the temperatures in the northern latitudes began to rise and the glaciers began to melt. As the sun of Leo began to rise and warm the planet, life began to spring up in fertile areas and humans also began to rise. It was during this time that we were birthed into the world much like the many fertile areas of Gaia were beginning to birth new life. Again, we see that the collective consciousness of the entire planet is affected by these energies and so all realities will manifest and mirror the attributes of the Ages in some way. We also know that the birth we are referring to is the fall into time and separation as a separate self. It was during the embodiment phase of the Age of Leo that humans began to gather, and the very early stages of human cultures began to emerge. During this time, we see evidence of seasonal villages, communities and temple/burial sites. In modern day Turkey, one of the oldest sites discovered called, Gobekli Tepe, was used by hunter gathers as a temple and burial site. It is one of the first places on Earth where evidence of humans gathering for worship or burial purposes has ever been recorded.
The famous city of Jericho had begun forming in a more village like capacity around 9,500 BC. Towards the end of the Age of Leo, humans were beginning to gather in villages across the world and the very early stages of agriculture using stone tools were beginning to form. We were introduced to the cycle of life, the seasons and time through developing our understanding of agriculture and fertility. The collective would also begin experiencing catastrophic flooding near the end of the Age that would continue well into the Age of Cancer and Gemini. These floods eventually made their way into our Creation stories and myths.
We were emerging from the Age of Leo with the understanding that in greater numbers or groups we could live together and share in resources to create a better life experience. We were shifting from the hunter gather lifestyle to living in seasonal type villages that followed herds and cultivated wild plants. The idea of creating a settled life was seeded in our consciousness and The Age of Cancer would completely transform our understanding of agriculture and usher in the concept of settling down to create a domestic life.
