Saint Germain’s Prophecy for the Aquarian Age
Saint Germain Sends His Messenger and the Seven Archangels
to South America to Inaugurate the Aquarian Age on Earth

Part 1

Welcome to the twenty-first century!

Welcome to the heart of Saint Germain!

And welcome to my heart!

Today I am going to tell you a story.

It’s a story about you, and it began a long time ago.

South America is a diverse, vital landmass–from the life-giving rain forests of the Amazon to the spacious pampas. The Andes are symbolic of this continent’s aspirations and spiritual potential. They form the world’s most extensive range of high mountains. Their pinnacles pierce the skies of Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru. They are studded with volcanoes that are part of the Ring of Fire.

Historians say that man first migrated to the Western Hemisphere from Asia and arrived in South America about 20,000 years ago. The native Indian cultures flourished here for thousands of years. Following the voyages of Columbus, the Spanish and Portuguese arrived, bringing slaves from Africa. And in modern times other Europeans have migrated to these shores.

If we scan a handful of snapshots of Latin American history, we see scenes from the great civilizations of the Incas, the Aztecs and the Mayans. We are astonished and perplexed by the “pre-historic airstrips” at Nazca and by the pyramids of Peru, as mysterious as those of ancient Egypt.

We gaze upon the ancient city of Cuzco, a mecca in the Andes, and the holy Incan sanctuary at Machu Picchu. We see the wars of liberation and the profiles of South American heroes–San Martín, Bolívar, Miranda–and the faces of many others whose toil and blood and sacrifice and creativity have built a civilization that may one day be the light of the world.

In the years since liberation from European control, South America has had a remarkable political history. Her people have experimented with many kinds of government–rule by strong-men, juntas and the military; governments on the Left and the Right; and the establishment of democratic republics.

South America has achieved much under difficult circumstances in a short time. She has thrown off her colonial past and abolished slavery. She has modernized and urbanized. And she has educated a large percentage of her people.

Today South America has difficult economic, political and social problems–from the maldistribution of wealth to failure to educate the poor. But some political scientists see the emergence of a new, distinctly South American democratic ideology. And the genius of Latin America that Bolívar spoke of so eloquently may evolve political structures that lead to a unique and vital culture of freedom.

Earth, a Crossroads in the Galaxy

But our search for who we are, where we came from and where we are going takes us into the distant past, beyond the reckoning of historians–back to the lost continents of Atlantis and Lemuria, back to the time when people from other worlds arrived on earth in spacecraft.

The records and artifacts of ancient Sumer, Egypt, India and even the Incan civilization bear witness to these visitors from distant planets. They arrived here with superior technology some 500,000 years ago. The aliens were not benevolent, and they manipulated the evolutions of earth. They practiced genetic engineering and taught men the arts of war.

They were followed here by people from Maldek, a planet that at one time was in our solar system but was destroyed by warring factions. All that remains of Maldek is the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. When the Maldekians began to incarnate on earth, they too brought an advanced science and a warlike nature.

The Mahabharata, an ancient Hindu text, talks about great battles, flying war chariots and advanced weapons of mass destruction. It all sounds like something out of George Lucas’s Star Wars. But it is a vision of the past, not the future.

Earth has become a crossroads in the galaxy.  She has many different evolutions–people who have their origins here, others who started out on other systems of worlds. Some are of the Light. Some have committed themselves to Darkness. Some are men, some are fallen angels who have taken embodiment, and some are angels of light. It is a complex tapestry.

Our Long-Awaited Role:
To Help Saint Germain Make Aquarius a Golden Age

Our story is more than a chronicle of the coming of aliens. There were great golden-age civilizations on Lemuria and Atlantis. Many of us were there. We were guided by Masters and advanced adepts. We knew and applied the laws of God, and we enjoyed a quality of life superior to what we have today.

Many of us have a soul memory of Lemuria and Atlantis. We have an inner awareness of past golden ages in which we played a part and we remember when, under the influence of the fallen angels, we betrayed our mentors.

This betrayal and the abuse of technology led to the sinking of Lemuria over 12,000 years ago. All that remains of that continent is the Ring of Fire, which traces the boundaries of the Pacific Ocean along the west coast of the Americas and the east coast of Asia. About a thousand years later Atlantis sank. The once great continents of Lemuria and Atlantis now lie beneath the oceans, their triumphs and their failures covered by the shifting sands of time.

Since then, the ages have rolled like cars on a great Ferris wheel. Civilizations have risen, flowered, declined and disappeared. And the people of Lemuria and Atlantis have reincarnated again and again, making good and bad karma along the way. And today many have gravitated to the Americas.

It is against this backdrop that you, the people of South America, are about to take your place on the stage of cosmic history.   Your role, our role is to help the Ascended Master Saint Germain make the Aquarian age a golden age. This is a role you and I have been waiting lifetimes to play.

I personally feel that I have been languishing here and there around the world, just waiting for Saint Germain to come into my life. Stop a moment and ask yourself:  “Where have I been for the last 10,000 years? Who am I? Where have I come from? And where am I going?”

That’s exactly what we’re here to find out. So let’s continue our voyage of self-discovery.

Our Goal As Pisces Closes: To Realize the Son of God Within

There are twelve astrological ages, each about 2,150 years long. They take their names from the signs of the zodiac. The entire cycle of twelve ages spans about 25,800 years.

New ages are related to the “precession of the equinoxes.” In astronomy this is the slow backward rotation of the earth around its polar axis. As the earth so rotates, the point of the spring equinox moves through the signs of the zodiac, denoting which age we are in.

No one knows exactly when each age begins or ends, but we do know that we are in the waning days of the age of Pisces. Because of the precession, we move through the ages in reverse order. Prior to the age of Pisces, we were in the age of Aries and before that the age of Taurus, and so on. In each age we are destined to assimilate an attribute of God and express the positive aspects of the sign.

The opening of these epochs is often accompanied by the birth of an avatar, or God-man, who embodies the spirit of the age that he inaugurates. The age of Pisces brought the awareness of God as the Son, revealed to us in the Universal Christ personified in Christ Jesus.

Jesus came to show us how to walk the path of our personal Christhood so that we could realize the Son of God within ourselves. Jesus is the sponsor of the age of Pisces and the example of what we could have, and should have, become. During this 2,150-year period, only the saints have achieved that goal!

Aquarius Will Be a Golden Age Only If You Make It Happen

The dawning age of Aquarius brings us the awareness of God as the Holy Spirit and as the Divine Mother. Aquarius can be an age of freedom, peace and enlightenment. It can be a time of technological progress combined with spiritual development. It can be a time when we break free from the past.

Chananda, Chief of the Indian Council of the Great White Brotherhood, stated in 1962:  “The Aquarian age is intended to be an age of absolute cooperation between God and the Ascended Masters, the Ascended Masters and man, and between  people everywhere. The symbol of Aquarius–a water bearer with balanced urns–reveals harmonious service and bountiful supply. This rhythmic spirit of cooperation must be the basis of every relationship, replacing outworn selfishness.” <1>

Some believe that Aquarius will be a golden age no matter what. But that thesis excludes free will, and free will is our divine birthright. The Ascended Master Lanto, who comes to the West from the Taoist tradition, recently said:  “It has been prophesied that a golden-age civilization shall once again rise in South America. But do not be superstitious. It will not happen unless you make it happen. It will not come to pass automatically.” <2>

There are many reasons for this, starting with karma. As the age of Aquarius begins, we can capitalize on the positive karma we have made in Pisces and prior ages, but we still have to deal with the negative karma of Pisces. In addition, we’re also dealing with the negative karma of the ages of Aries and Taurus and all the ages that came before, going back 25,800 years. The burden of history is upon us, and it is a heavy, heavy karmic burden.

Using Astrology to Predict Coming Challenges

Astrology shows that what has happened before can happen again, for astrology tells us when our positive and our negative karma will return to us. On the negative side of the ledger, the cycles of the next 12 years, the next 33 years and the next 200 years portend wars, plagues, political tyranny, economic turmoil, even the sinking of continents.

But this need not be.  Roger Bacon, the first modern scientist, said the purpose of studying astrology is to avoid its negative portents. Bacon believed that it was possible to avoid wars through the study of astrology. He said that if leaders of the Church had read the astrological warnings–such as the comet of 1264, which preceded the battles that broke out all over Europe–they might have averted the wars of their times. <3>

Saint Germain was embodied as Roger Bacon. He read the handwriting in the skies when he was Roger Bacon, and he reads it today. He brings a warning and a prophecy of the negative portents of Aquarius. He also comes to tell us that we have the power to change the future and to make the Aquarian age a golden age.
