I tried to save my Stellarium pages to show where the sun will rise in the years 2300, 2600, and 2800....but I cant get it to save the image for me. Could someone with Stellarium do this for me and posts the images

So what I am looking for, in short downrun....
Images of the space between Pisces and Aquarius, with the Sun in morning position (a ground view shot would be great), on the date of March 21st.....in this years time, 2300, and 2600. Any additional years in between those or even after the 2600 is also very welcome.
It would be so much easier for other readers to understand what is being said.

To show my ignorance, based on the song from the musical Hair, I thought we were already in the age of Aquarius. Something that doesn't make since to me is the fact that we are in the age of Pisces. Shouldn't we be in Capricorn if we are moving into to Aquarius? Why does it move backwards? I thought Pisces was the end.
Firstly that the astrological ages are linked to precession of the equinoxes. Secondly that due to the nature of the precession of the equinoxes, the progression of the ages proceeds in reverse direction through the zodiacal signs.
] Normally during the course of the astrological year, commencing around 21 March at the vernal equinox , the Sun moves through the zodiacal signs commencing with Aries, then Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and finally Pisces. After Pisces the Sun enters Aries and commences the cycle all over again. However, the astrological ages proceed in the reverse direction. Therefore after the Age of Pisces, the next age is the Age of Aquarius, followed by the Age of Capricorn, and so on.
Many astrologers find ages too erratic based on either the vernal point moving through the randomly sized zodiacal constellations or sidereal zodiac and instead round all astrological ages to exactly 2000 years each. In this approach the ages are usually neatly aligned so that the Aries age is found from 2000 BC to 1 AD, Pisces age 1 AD to 2000 AD, the Aquarian age 2000 AD - 4000 AD and so on. This approach is not consistent with the precession of the equinoxes. Based on precession of the equinoxes there is a one degree shift approximately every 72 years; therefore a 30 degree movement requires 2160 years to complete.
One issue with the variable length age method based on the zodiacal constellations is that many of these zodiacal constellations overlap. For example by 2700 the vernal point will have moved into the constellation of Aquarius, but due to the overlapping stars from the constellation of Pisces, the vernal point will also continue to point towards the constellation of Pisces. This overlap is a problem if this literal approach to the zodiacal constellations is adopted.
Robert Hand adds another point of view about cusps in that the stars of the constellation of Pisces overlap the stars of the constellation of Aquarius. Technically the vernal equinox enters the constellation of Aquarius in 2691 but does not leave the constellation of Pisces until 2817. Therefore between 2691 and 2817 the vernal equinox is pointing towards both the constellation of Pisces and the constellation of Aquarius. This approach has no effect upon those astrologers that utilize twelve equal sized ages based on the sidereal zodiac. Albert Amao Ph.D. states that the transition period between any two ages is based on one degrees either side of the point of intersection of two adjoining zodiacal constellations. As one degree is approximately 72 years, Amao has a transition period between ages of 144 years.
In graphical terms, the Earth behaves like a spinning top, and tops tend to wobble as they spin. The spin of the Earth is its daily (diurnal) rotation. The spinning Earth slowly wobbles over a period slightly less than 26,000 years. From our perspective on Earth, the stars are ever so slightly `moving' from west to east at the rate of one degree approximately every 72 years. One degree is about twice the diameter of the Sun or Moon as viewed from Earth. The easiest way to notice this slow movement of the stars is at any fixed time each year. The most common fixed time is at the vernal equinox around 21 March each year.
During the course of the year, the sun moves in a larger circle in sky. This circular motion of the sun is called the ecliptic. The term zodiac refers to the thin band in the sky on either side of the ecliptic. The zodiac is divided into twelve different signs.

You crossed my mind today and I wanted to share why with you. I dont offer anything as YOUR truth...but what I am seeing, may indeed be a sign for you.
Is it just happenstance, that you just found out that the sun rose in Gemini on your birth....and that you have discovered this, right as the Sun is moving into your true sign, of Gemini? Summer solstice was yesterday, while the Sun sits on the cups of 3 signs! Taurus, Orion, and Gemini.
This is the closest Orion ever is, to being a sign for the sun. During your time of becoming aware of the 'cosmic' energy pertaining to you....the Sun sits above the gate to Orion, and sits between Gemini, your true sing, and sits on Taurus....very possibly, showing a future leap for you right now. It could be, that through seeking this and your cosmic connection, is just what you need to not just take steps...but leaps, in this life.
Is it just a happenstance, that while you discovered and sought out the your cosmic connection...that Venus, the light bringer, sits in your Cancer, your 'old' sign?
I will leave the rest for you to ponder, I try to not say too much to others about what I see in their energy that awaits them, the opportunities that is there.
I can remind you though, when I discovered that Leo was my true sign, it was during the time of year that the Sun was entering Leo. Is this happenstance, for us both?
What I bring here to you today, is beyond horoscopes, its what I find in the true purpose of our connection with the cosmos. To me, its how the stars can speak to our spirit. I think the Universe is saying hi to you.
(Going now, already making too many suggestions)
My best to you

I don't know anything about Orion, maybe you can fill me in, but Taurus is special to me as I named my dog who passed away a few years ago, Taurus. I named him when i was only 13 and I think it was because, although he was the runt of the litter i felt his spirit was still strong, like a bull (Taurus). So my question to you is how do I seek this and find my cosmic connection, I feel I am ready to take gigantic leaps in whatever direction I am headed in, but I do not understand this astrology stuff well enough, could you help me by explaining this further? How do I find what direction in the cosmos is this area?
How did you find the part of the cosmos that related to you the best, did you just search? Did you have a general idea of where Leo was before hand?
Between the Lion Paws of the Sphinx at Giza, gazing eastwards, is a large stone that carries the inscription 'This is the Splendid Place of the First Time'. The First Time, or Zep Tepi, was a mysterious phrase the Egyptians used to allude to the beginning of time.
While standing between the paws of the Sphinx, Robert Bauval managed to determine the date of Zep Tepi. In Egyptian mythology the Phoenix, or Bennu Bird, is the symbol of the Sothic cycle of 1,460 years (which is the time it took the Egyptians' 365-day calendar to resynchronize with the beginning of the yearly cycle, marked by the heliacl rising of Sirius).
The synchronization of these two cycles, the yearly and the Sothic, took place in 11,451, 10,081, 7160,4241, and 2781 BC. Bauval noticed that these dates coincided with the commencement of some of the great building projects up and down the Nile.
Trying to figure out which of these cycles might have been the 'first' one, he was initially attracted by the idea that it might be 10,081 BC. Then Bauval worked out that on the earlier date of 11,451 BC, the Milky Way - which had immense significance in ancient cultures around the world as the 'river of souls' - was lying directly over the course of the Nile, so that they mirrored each other.
Moreover, it struck him that on this very early date of 11,451, the Sothic and yearly cycles coincided with a third cycle, the Great Year - the 25,920-year-long complete cycle of the Zodiac - in a most meaningful way. Because on that date the Lion-bodied Sphinx's eastwards gaze would have taken in the dawning of the Age of Leo.
The Sphinx embodies the four cardinal constellations of the Zodiac, the four corners of the cosmos - Leo, Taurus, Scorpio and Aquarius, the Four Elements that work together to make the material world. The Sphinx, according to the secret history, is a monument to the first time the Four Elements locked into place, with the result that matter finally became solid.
The Sphinx, therefore, has a very special place in history. It marks that point when, after wave upon wave of emanations from the cosmic mind, solid matter as we know it today was finally formed. The laws of physics as we know them today were only then set in motion, and from that point on the dates can be firmly fixed, because the great clock of the cosmos was finally set in its complex pattern of orbits.
If this late solidification of matter (when the spirit world and the physical world were finally completly seperated) were what actually happened, it would, of course, invalidate dating methods, such as Carbon-14, conventionally used to establish early chronologies. Modern science makes an assumption in its calculations that the ancients did not, namely that the natural laws have held true in all places and at all times.
So the Sphinx marks the end of the Age of Metamorphosis, the fixing of the biological forms we know today, as well as the fixing of the laws of nature. It also bars the way back.
According to esoteric doctrine, not only was matter precipitated out of mind a short while ago, but that it exists only for a breif interval. It will dissolve again in just over nine thousand years, when the sun rises again to meet the gaze of the Sphinx in the constellation of Leo.
In the teachings of the secret societies we live on a small island of matter in a vast ocean of ideas and imagination.
