It should be of interest to note that the ancient world saviour Hercules has already forecasted what could or hopefully will happen at the beginning of the Age of Aquarius as he traversed the zodiac in his twelve labours.
First of all, Hercules represented the soul and not the personality. His labours, however, represented the struggle between his lower nature, the personality, and his higher nature, the soul. For thousands of years the personality of Hercules, like us all, traversed the zodiac in a clockwise direction, e.g. from Aries to Taurus via Pisces. Eventually, however, Hercules the soul began to influence Hercules the personality more and more. A turning point began where the Hercules changed his direction and began to traverse the zodiac in an anti-clockwise direction, e.g. from Aries to Pisces via Taurus. Thus began his twelve labours and his journey on "the way" towards becoming a world server in Aquarius and a world saviour in the last sign of Pisces.
Hercules started his journey through the gates of Aries where he was instructed to capture the man-eating mares that ravaged the land. These horses had ran wild for centuries, creating havoc and devastation everywhere. Hercules needed to capture these mares and drive them through the next gate. Confident in his task Hercules called his very close friend to help, this was the one who walked in his footsteps and followed Hercules in his travels. Hercules quickly captured the mares but rather than running them through the gate himself he gave them to his friend and marched proudly in the lead. While Hercules was strong and confident his friend was not. The mares turned on him and attacked him. Grief stricken and sad, Hercules had to leave his friend on ground dying and once again he captured the horses and drove them through the gate.
The meaning of this myth sheds light on the same path that all of us must eventually traverse. The female horses that ravaged the land represent our unbridled thoughts and it's here, in the sign of Aries, the sign representing the head, that we must learn to control our thoughts, for if we don't then they will create devastation everywhere. Hercules' friend, the one who followed and mirrored his footsteps, represents the personality of Hercules. It is only when the personality and the soul work together can our thoughts truly be controlled. Without the influence of the soul the personality is weak.
So the first labour of Hercules was met with disaster. His closest friend was killed and he had to once again corral his thoughts and drive them forward in preparation for the next labour. Hercules met with other failures in his labours. In the labour of Gemini he had to find the golden apples of wisdom, where he met and assisted Atlas holding up the world. In the labour of Scorpio Hercules had to fight the nine headed Hydra, representing the physical, emotional and mental aspects of his personality. In the labour of Capricorn Hercules has to first save Prometheus, chained to a rock, and only then could he descend into Hades and fight Cerberus, the three headed dog. All these labours, from Aries to Capricorn prepared Hercules to first become a world server in the labour of Aquarius and then finally a world saviour in the labour of Pisces.
In the labour of Aquarius Hercules was instructed to clean out the stables of King Augeas, which had not been cleaned for a long time and were causing a terrible pestilence across the land. Hercules said that he could clean these stables in a single day but Augeas was skeptical that anyone could do this task, let alone in a single day, so he made a deal with Hercules that if he could clean these stables in a single day then he would give a one tenth of his cattle to him. He if couldn't then Hercules would have to turn his fortune over the king.
Hercules pondered on how to do this great task when he noticed two rivers running near the stables. With his great might Hercules diverted both of these rivers through stables, thus clearing away the filth and dung in a single day. Augeas was full of anger when heard this news, thinking that he had been tricked since it was the rivers and not Hercules that had performed the task. He ordered Hercules out of his kingdom. Hercules, however, happily returned to his Teacher and told Him of selfless deed, a deed that made him worthy of being called a world server.
The labour of Aquarius marks the keynote of the time we are living in right now. It's a time where pollution and skepticism is everywhere. And the pollution is not just the physical pollution we live with today, but its also the selfish emotional and mental corruption that dominates our world today. The two rivers represent the soul forces of love and wisdom. They are the two streams that pour out of the pitcher that Hercules carries in the sign of Aquarius. When the soul prevails in our lives then these forces of love and wisdom act as purifying waters in the world of the personality. Only when these forces begin to clear out the waste and obsession of materialism can we begin to live a simpler and more pure life.
Can these stables of our land be cleaned out in a single day? Time will tell, for an extraordinary may indeed happen very soon in our lives where the world will suddenly "wake up" and realize that our focus on the material world is killing us and that we must raise that focus to a higher level, a level where the "soul of man" becomes dominate over the personality. This would indeed be the beginning of a new earth and a new heaven.

Pisces is represented by TWO fish connected, not just one. The jesus fish is just pointing to the whole episode where he feeds more people than possible with a small amout of fish and bread, yet there was plenty for all. Pisces is not an individualist at all, it a sign known for morphing into its surroundings and being greatly affected as it's a pure water sign. Water is deffined by that which contains it.
“Someday, after mastering the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of love, and then, for a second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire.”
