What you need to do is download Stellarium.
Ages are counted by how long the sun rises in a constellation on the spring equinox. For the last 2000 years or so, the background to the sun on march
20/21 is for now Pisces.
All signs do not have the same amount of space. For example, each year the sun only rises in Scorpio for 8 days. But if you look at a tropical zodiac
(the most common one used and as well it is out of date) it will show scorpio covering a time more then 8 days due to the fact the tropical zodiac
breaks up the signs into equal segments. Why brake them in equal segments if the sun does not really rise in a certain sign in equal segments?
So first, we need to look at a sidereal zodiac or solar zodiac. They show us the true place of the sun today and what sign the sun truly rises in. The
monthly signs of the zodiac move one way...the signs to show the ages moves the other way.
If you look at stellarium, you can fast forward and watch the sun over time seem to move through Pisces and into Aquarius if you are watching it in
the time frame of march 20 for every year. The age of Aquarius is at least a couple hundred years off...and even then, we are in a cusp between the
two signs for another couple hundred years. So actually, we are looking at another 400 years or so till we can say we are completely in the age of
Aquarius and not in the age of Pisces at all.
Here is a thread I started a few weeks ago on this topic.
For those of you that think you are an Aquarius....you need to ask yourself if you truly are. The sidereal zodiac might show you that the sun realy
didnt rise in sign you think it did, or the sign that the tropical zodiac tells you that you did.
Its best to use astronomy to see what sign you were born in instead of astrology. Astrology follows what signs were behind the sun thousands of years
ago. This changes over time, the sun ( or signs) move 1 degree ever 72 years. There are many Taurus people that are really Aquarians. Some are true
sings...they are the same sign in both zodiacs. My mother is a true Tarus, in the tropical and sidereal. I am Virgo in Tropical and Leo in Sidereal.
The sun really rose in Leo on my birth.
Hope this helps!
