Suggestion: I'd like to see VC do an article with a detailed lyrical analysis of this 5th Dimension song. I have been unable to find one online.

I wanted to read an article by someone who is more knowledgeable about this stuff than I am. I've yet to find one online.

If you mean the astrology in the first couple of lines..
Its BS.
Means nothing.
70s astrological buzzwords.

Then what do you think it means?
I think it's obviously an occult song. No question about that in my mind, but I'd like to read something by someone more knowledgeable than me on this that would go into a more detailed analysis.

The line when the moon is in the seventh house...
That happens regularly. every day. And you have to decide which house system to use

the line jupiter aligns with mars.
What sort of alignment? conjunct? square? trine? opposition?

They cycle through all these every couple of years.

Too many dates fulfil the conditions.

Yes I am an astrologer.
That is my detailed analysis.

So basically, they just took a lot of actual astrological stuff, threw it together in a rhythm and rhyme scheme that sounded pleasant but was devoid of most factual basis, recoded and pressed that bad boy then called it macaroni? Sounds like it would fit right in w/today's "top hits" lol

Except that the 5th Dimension had an overload of actual talent.

The song is what it is.
It has meaning, it is saying something.
As a song I have always rather liked it.

However, the astrology mentioned in it is not really specific and could be applied to many dates.

The houses are very dependant on time and place.

In april this year Jupiter and mars were close. somewhere around the middle of the month the moon joined them, in the 7th house (equal house system) for a couple of hours
I have been looking for a specific day when they were all in aquarius, but they seem to be too spread out for that.

If you wanted to pick a day, midday GMT 15th April 2020 is close. but it spreads out too much into capricorn.

If you just want what it says in the song, moon in the 7th house, and jupiter and mars in some unspecified alignment, then it happens quite a lot.

If you choose something more specific, that is not in the song (mars, jupiter and the moon, all in the 7th house, all in aquarius, all conjunt) then 15th april came close, but not really close enough.

Actually, I was hoping for an article about this song on The Vigilant Citizen. I'm more interested in reading about the song from a Christian point of view.

Astrology is a map of the heavens.
An astrological chart is the same wether its drawn up by a christian, an athiest, or an occultist.

The planets move the same regardless of what is believed.

I'm not concerned with a map. The Vigilant Citizen calls out occultism from a biblical point of view, which is what I'm interested in.

Oh, ok. I thought you were interested in the astronomical lines in the song.
All the rest is mostly a mish mash of touchy feely new age stuff.

If VC were to do an article, it would be nice if he did one on the whole of Hair, how it references early christianity, and how this ties into whats happening today with the rise of satanism as a religion.

That would be very interesting.

Yes, I'd be interested in a VC article about Hair too. I recently read a book called:
Out of India: A True Story about the New Age Movement by Caryl Matrisciana .

The author was raised in India and at the beginning of the book she talks about going to see "Hair". While she was there she realized how much "Hair" reminded her of the Hinduism of her native India. I also read about "Hair" in a book called
The Marxist Minstrels: A Handbook on Communist Subversion of Music.
