The sign of Aquarius depicted by the artist Johfra Bosschart

The division of world history into aeons. The main factor used in calculation is the movement of the vernal equinox through the zodiac in 25729 years (according to some sources 25771 years) - the so-called Platonic Year. According to this theory, the vernal equinox spends around 2000 years traversing one sign of the zodiac whose influence then defines that particular age. Many astrologers are of the opinion that we now find ourselves at the end of the Age of Pisces and on the cusp of the coming Age of Aquarius.

But opinions differ as to where and when each different sign and age begins. The estimates sometimes vary by hundreds of years. However, it is certainly the case that we should expect a fairly long transitional phase of several decades or longer.
