The New Children

The Astrology of the Indigo and Crystal Children

In recent years there have been unprecedented numbers of multi-gifted souls incarnating with above average intelligence, social awareness, consciousness, psychic abilities, acute sensitivity and independent and innovative thinking. Their eyes are large, clear and shining with light. Words of wisdom, knowledge and insight way beyond their years flow easily from their lips. They are a delight and a joy to their more conscious Pluto in Leo grandparents! Perhaps they live in your family.

These children have become known as Indigo, Crystal, Rainbow or Star Children. Some say they are the Fifth Seed Race who carry the qualities of brain and DNA evolution to take humanity forward into the New Age.

For those unable to see these children for who they are, they are weird, strange, odd, scary, uncontrollable, rebellious, hyperactive, angry, moody and generally difficult to handle. This lack of recognition and understand to these sensitive children is deeply painful and many withdraw into their multi-dimensional worlds.

Human evolution and generational patterns are reflected in the movement of the slower moving outer planets: Uranus, Neptune and Pluto These are the ‘cosmic’ or consciousness planets and their passage through the last few signs of the zodiac (Sagittarius through to Pisces can be called the Universal Signs) has activated tremendous shifts in individual and collective consciousness.

In the mid 70’s, many children incarnated with heightened intelligence and awareness and the color indigo predominant in their auras.

From around 1995, another group began to appear: the Crystal or Rainbow Children. They show clear rainbow colors swirling through their auras and chakras – they are quite literally lit up.

Not every child born during these times are highly gifted and conscious, but remarkably large numbers of them are, and it seems that more and more of them are incarnating ever year. Their timing is impeccable!

Outer Planetary Phases

I have sub-grouped these planetary shifts into general periods, although there is some overlapping.

1. 1971 to 1983
Pluto entered Libra
Neptune entered Sagittarius.
Uranus was in Libra through to Sagittarius.

2. 1983 to 1995
Pluto entered Scorpio 1983
Neptune entered Capricorn 1983
Uranus in Capricorn from 1988 to 1995
Saturn in Capricorn 1989 and 1990
* In 1993, Uranus and Neptune formed an exact conjunction at 18-19 degrees of Capricorn. This conjunction occurs only every 170 years and is particularly significant at this time as we approach the end of the Mayan Calendar and move into the Age of Aquarius.

3. 1995 to 2003
Pluto entered Sagittarius 1995
Uranus moved into Aquarius 1995. It was a dramatic shift of energy!
Neptune moved into Aquarius 1998.
Children born 1998 to 2003 have both Uranus and Neptune in the sign of Aquarius.

4. 2003 to 2012
Uranus entered Pisces 2003
Neptune still in Aquarius
Pluto enters Capricorn in 2008
In 2011, Uranus leaves Pisces for Aries and 2011-2012 Neptune enters is own sign, Pisces.

It’s important to highlight the significance of Uranus and Neptune coming together in a conjunction in 1993 and both traveling through their own and each other’s signs from 1995 through to 2012 and beyond. If we allow an orb of 8 degrees for the conjunction, this Uranus/Neptune process began around 1989.

Why are Uranus and Neptune important with the New Children?

Uranus will always be strong in the charts of anyone who shows a high degree of intelligence, consciousness, individuality and independence of thought. They are the innovators and are, quite simply, wired differently. Their brains and nervous systems are evolved to receive higher vibrations, messages, light and consciousness. They are different. Children with apparent ADD, ADHD, autism, behavioral disorders etc also have prominent Uranus aspects in their charts.

When Neptune is strong in the chart of an older, more conscious soul, it gives heightened sensitivity, a sense of the oneness of life, higher empathy and loving compassion and often remarkable musical and artistic gifts. A Neptunian problem for these children is our cultures readiness to prescribe them drugs such as Ritalin to calm down their excited system and make them more manageable, when perhaps what they really need is an entirely different form of education and support from more conscious adults to honour their brilliance that flows through their highly charged brains and nervous systems. Doping them is not the answer and as usual, in years to come, the negative effects of this practice will be well-known.

Space doesn’t allow me to go into detail about the qualities, abilities, challenges and potential of these children, but there are many books and web sites available that explore. See my Contact Page for the web site of Eileen Brauer.

In general, the earlier Indigos tend to be more serious, responsible and often withdrawn and they struggle with deep feelings of alienation and frustration. They will come into their own when Pluto makes his long passage through Capricorn in 2008 through to 2025 and passes over their natal Uranus and Neptune placements.

The younger group born since 1995 carry the heightened energy of Pluto in Sagittarius and Uranus in Aquarius. Those born from 1998 have Neptune in Aquarius, and those born after 2003 have Uranus in Pisces plus Neptune in Aquarius. These are the Crystal Children and as a group are generally happy, open, loving and highly gifted. Some refer to them as the Star Children and it does seem indeed as if they may have come from other galaxies.

My personal view is that since the powerful and radical Uranus/Pluto conjunction of the mid Sixties, many souls of the Pluto in Leo generation came into young adulthood and like bees to the honey flocked to the East, called by a mysterious and karmic link to their guru and spiritual path. There was a dramatic, unprecedented and rapid rise in interest in personal transformation, spiritual growth, consciousness and the search for Truth. Who Am I? is the burning question of this group and many of this generation are the more conscious parents and grandparents of the New Children born since the late Seventies.

Significant numbers are awakened and now sharing the light with others through satsang, music, teaching, deeksha, group processes, healing and others forms of energetic transfer. Numbers of these souls have died consciously in the past decade or two and reincarnated as the New Children, their spiritual evolution having continued in the higher realms between incarnations.

The Age of Aquarius is apon us. Aquarius = consciousness, light, social revolution, technology, science, and an innate sense of the brother and sisterhood of all life. Before we are fully immersed in the New Golden Age to come, we are passing through a passage of chaos and intense crisis as the old order struggles to maintain control and comes to terms with gripping realities such as economic shifting sands, fuel shortages, environmental disasters, climate change, earth upheavals, poverty, human rights abuses. The New Children and their children carry the activated DNA, consciousness, intelligence, scope of vision and depth of wisdom to lead us forward. Are we listening to them?

Uranus and Neptune in the Horoscope:

These planets are immensely powerful and as gateways to dimensions of reality beyond the outer reaches of our solar system, reflect the ongoing evolution of humanity, both individually and collectively. Their discovery in recent times has catapulted human-kind into an unprecedented phase of growth and drama on a world scale.

Those children and youth born with either or both of these planets in strong aspect to the Sun and/or Moon, or the Nodes or Angles carry a powerful potential to offer their deep wisdom, common sense and knowing when they come into adulthood and take positions of leadership in the world. Of course these kinds of planetary patterns also bring their own challenges, not the least of which is for these expanded souls to adjust to life in a dense third-dimensional physical form. In fact significant numbers have had personal tragedy or are trapped inside broken and disabled bodies, and yet their intelligence, light, joy and love shine through for all to see.

I have examined the charts of many of these children and find a number of common astrological themes:

1. Uranus and or Neptune in strong aspect to Sun and/or Moon, the Angles and/or the Nodes. Those who are particularly brilliant and gifted seem to have strong contacts with the Nodes, indicating the development of higher consciousness in prior lifetimes and other dimensions.

2. There is often a marked focus of personal planets with at least one outer planet in one sign, indicating a strength and focus in that area of life. Some babies born in the past couple of years are showing stelliums in Aquarius and Pisces, activated by Uranus and Neptune in those 2 signs.

3. Mars is very often in an air sign and/or in strong aspect to Mercury, stimulating and energizing the mental body and urging them to speak out.

4. Leo and Aquarius are usually prominent in the chart. These 2 signs can indicate gifted intelligence and talents, being independent and different. They also carry the light.

Bindi Irwin. Born July 1998. Bindi’s dad was definitely an Indigo/Rainbow soul and her chart has all the indicators. Neptune at 0 Aquarius is exactly opposite her Sun at 1 Leo and Uranus at 11 Aquarius is opposite her Moon at 12 Leo. Neptune semi-sextiles the South Node and sextiles Jupiter at 28 Pisces which is on her Ascendant at 1 Aries. With Uranus and Neptune so strongly opposing the Lights, she has suffered a great loss in her young life, but shows the powerful consciousness, clarity, confidence and purpose of a Crystal Child. And she has been blessed with conscious parents who haven’t held her back.

Akiane. Spiritual artist, poet and prodigy. Born July 1994. Akiane was born on the conjunction of Uranus and Neptune in Capricorn forming a strong opposition to her Sun and Moon in Cancer in the first house. Uranus and Neptune sextiles the Pluto/South Node conjunction. Mars is in Gemini and Saturn conjuncts the Ascendant in Pisces, trine her Sun and Moon.

"I was with God again, and He told me to pray continually. He showed me, where He lived. I was climbing transparent stairs; underneath I saw gushing waterfalls, and as I was approaching Him, His body was pure and intense light. What impressed me the most was His hands -- they were gigantic! I saw no bones, or veins, no skin or blood, but maps and events. Then He told me to memorize thousands upon thousands of wisdom words on a scroll that did not look like paper, but more like intense light. And in a few seconds I got somehow filled up. From now on I will get up early to paint. I hope one day I'd be able to paint what I was shown." - Akiane.

Young Child born March 2002. A very sensitive, psychic and loving child. She remembers much about her past lives and her prior connections with her mother. She is a sensitive Pisces with a conjunction of Neptune, Uranus and Mercury in Aquarius. Uranus and Mercury sextile the South Node/Pluto conjunction in Sagittarius.

Baby Girl born to spiritually enlightened parents, August 2005. She has Uranus in Pisces in the 10th, opposite the Sun in Virgo on the IC, Neptune in Aquarius in the 9th opposite Saturn, Black Moon and Mercury in Leo in the 3rd. Jupiter conjuncts the South Node and trines Neptune.

I am available for astrological consultations with Indigo teenagers and adults and with the parents of the younger Crystal Children
