When I started learning about Astrology and the "ages" I got pretty curious about how everything worked and what the consensus was about the coming age. I kept hearing about this being the Pisces Age and the ages are playing backwards (retrograde) as opposed to the actual horoscope signs i.e. in horoscopes Pisces comes AFTER Aquarius, but in the "ages" of existence (based on astrology) scenario it's Aquarius that we're coming UPON.
An age, from what I learned, is essentially a 2,500 year span (by one account) of time where human kind is supposed to experience an "age" much like growing kids. Aquarius is likened to us reaching our mature young adult years in this existence. It's an age of a "free mind", meaningful relationships, crystal science's all time high, and none of us can actually fathom it (but the song "The Age Of Aquarius" makes you think your already there, in a utopia from what the lyrics promise).

Oh BTW, Remember that motivation article I promissed you eons ago? I didn't forget, I've been hashing away at it but it's been turned into two different articles. One is about "The Physics Of Motivation" and the other "Freelance Writing - A Few Tips, Tricks, and Things To Watch Out For To Stay Motivated"... one is based on Motivation in general and goes deep into the coolness that is biological motivation, the other covers writer mentalities that maintain motivation (and others that dissolve it)... I made a major error tonight and accidentally deleted the wrong module taking with it a huge chunk of the article :( Luckily- I backed it up before messing with it but the formatting was lost so hopefully it will be ready this week or next...
Wow Thanks for the additional content for my readers- fascinating stuff isn't it? (I can't stop looping that extended version of the song (above) lol! Where is Settee Glastonbury? I've never heard of that place... (I'm off to bed will reply when I get up if necessary :) <---closing parenthesis with a smile
It's great to be reading this while sitting on a settee in Glastonbury. The Age of Aquarius has certainly been pre-empted by this town!
I love what you've written here and I can also add some cultural history. The astrological ages are linked to whatever zodical sign is rising during the vernal equinox. This is a slow process, taking thousands of years to switch to the next one.
It's been an important celestial marker for human beings over the millennia. For example, when it was the Age of Taurus, we saw bulls turning up in Egyptian architecture; the legend of the Minotaur gained popularity; and the God Mithras became important to the Persians (spreading later throughout the Roman Empire). When it was the Age of Leo, then we get lions turning up in great monuments like, for example, the sphinx.
We've been in the Age of Pisces for a while and what is the great symbol of one of the prominent religions? The fish of Christianity. These things are not coincidental. It's the great spiritual leaders harking to the celestial pointers. If you can 'own' what is rising on the vernal equinox, then you 'own' the spirituality of that age.
