Age of Pisces
Age of Aries
Sympathy and trust abounding.
No more falsehoods or derision,
Golden living, dreams of vision.
Mystic crystal revelations,
And the mind's true liberation.
When the moon is in the southern half,
And Jupiter aligned with Mars.
Then peace will guide the planet,
And love will steer the stars.
This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius!
Age of Aquarius!
Aquarius! Aquarius! Aquarius! Aquarius!"

"As we know
from ancient Egyptian history, there are
symptoms of psychic changes that always appear at the end of one
Platonic month and at the beginning of another. They are, it
seems, changes in the constellation of the psychic dominants, of
the archetypes or "Gods" as they used to be called, which bring
about, or accompany, long-lasting transformations of the

"Increasing numbers of people in the west, it seems, are
prepared to be less dogmatic and more open-minded and accept
beliefs from a variety of traditions without too much concern
about their consistency. Reincarnation, for example, is a
non-Christian belief held by an estimated 25 percent of Western
Europeans, many of whom who would also appear to believe in the
resurrection of Jesus and other Christian tenets about the
afterlife. The New Age movement, which draws on insights from
many traditions, is perhaps the best example of this eclectic

One of his premises is that C.G. Jung, the great
pioneer of the unconscious and collective psyche is the main
popularizer of the concept of the Age of Aquarius. Like
many orthodox historical viewpoints, he rejects the view that
the 30 degree zodiacal precessions are part of our legacy and
particularly pregnant in the zeitgeist of the 21st century
"The mystical theme of the Space Age is this:
the world as we know it, is coming to an end. The world
as the center of the universe, the world divided from the
heavens, the world bound by horizons in which love is reserved
for members of the in-group: that is the world that is passing
away. Apocalypse does not point to a fiery Armageddon but to the
fact that our ignorance and our complacency are coming to an
end. Our divided, schizophrenic world view, with no mythology
adequate to coordinate our conscious and unconscious __that is
what is coming to an end. The exclusivism of there being only
one way in which we can be saved, the idea that there is a
single religious group that is in sole possession of the
truth__that is the world as know it that must pass away. What is
kingdom? It lies in our realization of the ubiquity of the
divine presence in our neighbors, in our enemies, in all of us."

Chapter IV, The Sign of the Fishes
northerly, or easterly fish, which the spring-point entered at
about the beginning of our era83,
is joined to the southerly, or westerly, fish by the so-called
commissure. This consists of a band of faint stars forming the
middle sector of the constellation, and the spring-point
gradually moved along its southern edge. The point where the
ecliptic intersects with the meridian at the tail of the second
fish coincides roughly with the sixteenth century, the time of
the Reformation, which as we know is so extraordinarily
important for the history of Western symbols. Since then the
spring-point has entered the southern edge of the fish, and will
enter Aquarius in the course of the third millennium84.
Astrologically interpreted, the designation of Christ as one of
the fishes identified him with the first fish, the vertical
one. Christ is followed by the Antichrist at the end of time.
The beginning of the enantiodromia would fall, logically, midway
between the two fishes. We have seen that this is so. The time
of the Renaissance begins in the immediate vicinity of the
second fish, and with it comes the spirit which culminates in
the modern age85.
The meridian of the star "O" in the commissure passed through
the spring-point in A.D. 11 and that of the star "a 113" in 146
BC. Calculated on the basis of C. H. F. Peters and E. B. Knobel,

I do not
imagine that in my reflections on the meaning of man and his
myth I have uttered a final truth, but I think that this is what
can be said at the end of our aeon of the Fishes, and perhaps
must be said in view of the coming aeon of Aquarius (the Water
Bearer), who has a human figure and is next to the sign of the
Fishes. This is a coniunctio oppositorum composed of two fishes
Since the delimitation of the constellations is known to be
somewhat arbitrary, this date is very indefinite. It refers to
the actual constellation of fixed stars, not to the zodion
noeton, i.e. the zodiac divided into sectors of 30ş each.
Astrologically, the beginning of the next aeon, according to the
starting point you select falls between AD 2000 and AD 2200.
Starting from the star "O" and assuming a Platonic month of 2
143 years, one would arrive at AD 2154 for the beginning of the
Aquarian Age, and at AD 1997 if you start at star "a 113." The
latter date agrees with the longitude of the stars in Ptolemy's
Almagest, p. 199, n. 1.
Modern astrological speculation likewise associates the Fishes
with Christ: "The fishes... the inhabitants of the waters, are
firstly an emblem of those whose life being hid with Christ in
God, come out of the waters of judgment without being destroyed
[and illusion to fishes that were not drowned in the deluge! C.
G. J.] and shall find their true sphere where life abounds and
death is not: where, forever surrounding with living water and
drinking from it's fountain they 'shall not perish, but have
everlasting life.' ... Those who shall dwell for ever in the
living water are one with Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the
Living One." (E. M. Smith, The Zodia,, pp. 280f, London,
1906.)C G Jung 1951 AD [for the German-language
Version], Aion [published in the Collected Works 9, Part
II] Chapter IV, The Sign of the Fishes: including the footnotes

have known for decades that the 13-baktun cycle of the Mayan
‘Long Count’ system of timekeeping was set to end precisely on a
winter solstice, and that this system was put in place some 2300
years ago. This amazing fact -- that ancient Mesoamerican
skywatchers were able to pinpoint a winter solstice far off into
the future -- has not been dealt with by Mayanists. And why did
they choose the year 2012? One immediately
