Druid chief says Christmas Star is feminist and ‘end of the world as we know it’
A druid chief says tomorrow's extremely rare " Christmas Star" will mark the end of male-dominated societies.
Wally Dean, 51, hailed the joining of Saturn and Jupiter on the Winter Solstice as the "end of the world as we know it".
NASA says the two planets will be at their closest for more than 400 years and look like a star at sunset.
The Chosen Chief of the Secular Druids said he will see in the new era with blessings for humanity at Stonehenge, which is sacred to his pagan religion.
He told the Daily Star: "It's seen by a lot of people as a changing of the times, as a end of an age.
"I'm planning on going up to Stonehenge, socially distancing myself on the the land adjacent to it.
"It's the age of Aquarius soon, I do believe it will bring a few more people, and especially because of the sunset, there.
"It marks the end of a era where we move into the period of Aquarius.
"The (current) age of Pisces… is more of a patriarchal system.
"I do believe that Aquarius is a more communicative and cooperative system.

"I never believed in the end of the world but I believe in the end of the world as we know it. We are going to have a change in our value systems.
"I do see a world where we will be a bit more sexually and internationally harmonious."
Glastonbury-based Wally has celebrated nearly every Winter Solstice at Stonehenge since he was seven-years-old.

He said: "They've shutdown all of the byways and footpaths but for us it's important. I don't think I'm putting anyone in danger by going up.
"I'm going there because there's over three thousand people in my druidic order.
"If the restrictions carry on through the next year I can see there being a couple of difficult points."
The joining of the two of the biggest planets in our solar system is known as the Great Conjunction.
The fact this will happen on the Winter Solstice – the shortest day of the year – has led astronomers to dub it the 'Christmas Star' due to its appearance over the festive season.
While the planets will be at their closest tomorrow, they are clearly visible in the night's sky now.
