On the Cusp of the Age of Aquarius and Pisces
The Dawning of a New Age, and the Ending of the Old
We are currently on the cusp between the ages of Pisces and Aquarius. What is an Age? The Zodiac is divided into twelve unequal parts called constellations, or signs. Concerning Ages, we go backwards through the Zodiac. Currently, we are in the Age of Pisces, and we are going backwards towards the sign of Aquarius. It is hard to tell when one Age begins and another ends. It is easy to tell during the middle of an Age, because the spring sun will rise in a particular sign during the equinox. But if it is at the beginning or ending of an age, it is difficult to tell what sign the equinox sun is rising in.
Also, some of the sign constellations are larger than others. Thus, it is best to divide the ages into equal time amounts. As one full Precession of the Equinox is 25,920 years, each of the twelve signs is given 2160 years.
That means one Age is equal to 2160 years. This is celebrated in mythology, if you look and compare mythologies. The Bible portrays the end of Taurus and beginning of Aries with the story of Moses and the golden calf. Cows and bulls were worshipped around the time of the Age of Taurus. This is shown in Egyptian and Indian mythology. Jesus is represented by the fish symbol, and Jesus portrays the beginning of the Age of Pisces, the fish.
The Age of Aquarius is portrayed by a man pouring out water from a pitcher. What will this symbolism mean for the coming Age? Will it mean a new consciousness in the Age of Man? The Bible has a story about a man and a pitcher of water, in the story of Sodom and Gamora. Is this a tale of the coming Age of Aquarius?
There is no way to tell when the new age will start. All we can know is when we are near, and that time is now. We are exactly halfway in the Precession of the Equinoxes, give or take a few hundred years. Does this mean anything? Or is it all just mythology?
