It's not the end of the age, just the end of an era. Mankind has always went through some sort of change of one form or another.
Just prior to the Age of Aries is the Age of Taurus (4600 to 2400 B.C.E.). Taurus is very much a female sign, and implies an Age “ruled” by the Goddess. This was also the time when Alpha Draconis was being recognized as the pole star. This is noteworthy in that in most goddess cultures, the dragon is considered the defender of the feminine. This is also why Saint George allegedly slaying the dragon is but a metaphor for the patriarchy’s ascent over the prior matriarchal cultures -- described more fully in Astrology According to the Goddess and the goddess, Inanna’s Descent into Hades). However, because the Anunnaki is a male dominated, chauvinistic group, there is little likelihood that the Goddess’s authority went unchallenged. It is more likely that the day-to-day, routine bloodshed in war and otherwise was temporarily muted somewhat.
This would also imply that during the prior Age of Aries (roughly 2400 to 600 B.C.E.), the Age was “ruled” by Mars, the god of war. Aries is very much a male (macho) sign, and is likely to have been a time when the aggressive male energy dominated affairs. This might best be illustrated by the reign of Marduk in Babylon. Marduk is traditionally associated with Mars, and his reign, primarily from Babylon would have occurred after the fall of the Sumerian civilization circa 2000 B.C.E.. (Incidentally, the word “Cairo” in the ancient language of the time means “Mars”!)
The Age of Pisces is considered by some as the Age of Christianity, inasmuch as the 2160 years sometimes allotted also coincides reasonably with that religion’s tenure on Earth. But from a broader point of view, all the “Ages” are more likely tied to specific deities of ancient Sumerian notoriety.

I have personally seen a load of guillotines being delivered in montana back when I use to drive a rig. The times ahead of us are while at the same time exciting, are very dangerous and scary to say the very least!

Haha, nice, loved that game.
I do think humanity is in for a rough ride, but I also think we are about to go through, or already are going through a spiritual evolution.

You are kidding,right? There were times much worse then now, even in the last century. Not to mention all Human history. This is not unique in any way. Recall the black plague pandemics (when HALF of Europe's population died, for example). Mongols invasion when countries fell left and right and all kinds of doomsday stories circulated (maybe even about evil moneychangers too).
You are too quick to jump into doomsday conclusion. Wait at least untill 2012 .
Really - this is not the end. It is not even beginning of the end. Nor end of the beginning.
I'll give us a century more of same old easily.
