The World’s Oldest Indigo Child

I adore astrologer Robert Wilkinson, whom I think is about the best modern astrologers we have. I’m sure there are others out there who are also as skilled but he has an easy way of explaining what’s pertinent to the fans of his websites.
I’ve known for years that I have Moon, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, and my South Node in Aquarius. The only person I know of with as much Aquarius as I have is Maggie Shayne. Maybe M.R. Sellars.
I knew it was quite a line-up but I got a kick out of it when Wilkinson mentioned that I was born at one of the most exceptional times in the past few centuries. There are only so many times that the planets line up like that. And I do remember various fundamentalist Baptist preachers telling me as a child that when all the planets lined up, then it foretold the end of the world.
So just for fun…(and if my eyes could make out the tiny print on the ephemeris!)..let’s see how rare this really was.
Saturn was in Aquarius:
From 6 January 1959 to 4 March 1967
Jupiter was in Aquarius:
From 16 March 1961 to 26 March 1962
Mars was in Aquarius:
2 February 1962 to 13 March 1962
So only people born between 2 February 1962 and 13
March 1962 would have this line-up.
I went back through the ephemeris to see where these three planets last matched up…okay, so I was looking for someone with a similar astrological “birthday” and found that when Saturn was previously in Aquarius (1697 to 1700), Saturn left the sign about three months before Jupiter arrived. Before that, both were in Aquarius from 1 February 1404 to 12 February 1404, but March had already left Aquarius by then. I got back to the late 1100’s and gave in. Okay, yes, an unusual line-up and a very exceptional time to be born, more so than I’d thought.
The “true” visionary Aquarius? (Who is probably either in a Top Secret Government think tank or institutionalized somewhere): Born 5 February 1962 at 8 AM EST.
Venus was in Aquarius:
22 January 1962 to 15 February 1962
Mercury was in Aquarius:
8 January 1962 to 4 April 1962(retrograde part of that time)
Sun was in Aquarius:
21 January 1962 to 20 February 1962
Moon was in Aquarius:
4 February 1962 to 6 February 1962 (in Pisces on 6 February)
When you think about it, this really is quite a lineup! Did 1962 really usher in the Age of Aquarius? Maybe it’s why other people with this line-up tell me they feel they were born ahead of their times.
And why I often had so much trouble fitting in.
And why I often feel like the world’s oldest Indigo child.
