In 4713 BC, December 20th, the Sun was in Aquarius.
In 2005, December 20, the Sun is in Sagitarius instead of Aquarius
The Age of Aquarius is one of the twelve astrological ages. Each astrological age is approximately 2,150 years long, on average, but there are various methods that can make ages much longer and shorter depending upon the technique used. Unlike sun-sign astrology where the first sign is Aries, followed by Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces whereupon following Pisces the cycle returns back to Aries and through the zodiacal signs again, the astrological ages proceed in the opposite direction or order. Therefore the age before the Age of Aquarius is the Age of Pisces. Following the Age of Aquarius will be the Age of Capricorn, then the Age of Sagittarius and so on.

The astrological "ages" are determined by which zodiacal constellation the sun lies in at the Spring Equinox. Because of precession this constellation changes in an approximately 26,000 year cycle (sound familiar?). Because there are twelve zodiacal constellations, each "age" lasts about 2,200 years. Because of precession, birthdates and the sun signs related to them gradually change over time.
Enigma Publius: Ophiuchus is not a zodiacal constellation. Therefore it cannot be a sun sign.
BTW, astrology is bunk.

So you are talking about when the band of the milky way stars line up in the spot? If so, I think I understand what you mean.
I thought it was at the center when it was between sag and scorpio?
And can you explain why Ophiuchus isn't a sun sign? I've seen stuff that showed the sun went in the bottom part of it during certain times of the wobble, but not all the time.
