different sources have different start dates for the start of the Piscean Age
... i've read that 100 BCE was the start, ergo, it will be 2060 for the start
of the Aquarian Age.
but, the 2160 year 'Age' is a result of geometry, of dividing the heavens
into 12 parts of 30 degrees each.... a mathematical clean up of the rather
messy real world sky & constellations.
Not all the constellations are 30 degrees apart, so the length of each
constellation 'Age' varies, it was observed that the Age of Aquarius
depending on the benchmark start point actually began anywhere
between the late 1980s and 2001...with the rising of Aquarius on the
horizon to Aquarius at another position on the solstice making the difference of just 'when' the Aquarian Age actually began.
but in the long run, the whole precession does take 72 years for the sky to move 1 degree and therefore a whole precession takes
72 X 360 = 25,920 years (give or take...unlike the Maya calendar)
