The Age of Aquarius: Woodstock Hippie era: The height of hedonism in the United States during the 1960s
In astrology, the ‘Age of Aquarius’ refers to a period (zodiac sign Aquarius) of increased harmony in the world. It is when self-pleasure thrives, religions fade, and science and spirituality unite—without the need for God.
This era was commonly known as the “hippie age,” a counterculture that rejected conservative mores.
In short, they were rebellious, and the song “Age of Aquarius” by the Fifth Dimension was its unofficial theme song.
When love is really all about drugs, sex, and more sex
In 1967, “The Summer of Love” was a social phenomenon that brought together about 100,000 young people in hippie fashion in Haight-Ashbury, San Francisco.
It was dubbed the “season of great music” and the zenith of the flower child (symbols of peace and love). They welcomed anyone and shared food, money, and their sexual partners.

Mandated “free sex”
The “Age of Aquarius” is an archaic sense of freedom. But in hindsight, it was really about doing drugs like LSD, marijuana, and “free sex” in the guise of mandated “Free Love.”
In 1994, “Woodstock 1969” was “recreated” in New York. The event commemorated the 25th anniversary of the festival. It was again organized in 1999.

Woodstock and the Burning Man Festivals
Today, “Burning Man” is the new Woodstock. A “judge-free zone” where you can be who you are and express it through love through gifting, music, spirit rituals, drugs, and “free sex.”
