What Is the Age of Aquarius?

“The Age of Aquarius” is a phrase that many people may be familiar with, either through astrology or pop culture. It’s even the subject of a famous song. However, the Age of Aquarius is a real phenomenon. In fact, it’s one of twelve “astrological ages” that the world moves through on a massive scale, thought to bring change from the stars.

What Are the Astrological Ages?

The astrological ages are connected to the precession of the equinoxes, which occur when the sun at the Vernal Equinox moves from one constellation to another. Every time this happens, the world moves out of the previous astrological age and into a new one. The precise length of each astrological age varies, but they generally last about 2,150 years, with it taking roughly 26,000 years to cycle through all 12 signs.

Due to the large scale of the different astrological ages, there are no clearly defined boundaries or dates for the transitions between them. Rather, the astrological ages are understood by long-term trends and gradual changes to the placements of the stars.

The Age of Aquarius in Astrology

Since about 1 CE, the world has been in the Age of Pisces. It was preceded by the Age of Aries. Aquarius is next in the cycle, and — by many accounts — already arriving as the world moves into the cusp between these two astrological ages.

When Does the Age of Aquarius Begin?

The actual start date of the Age of Aquarius is unknown. Some astrologers think it may not begin for hundreds of years, but many others actually believe that it’s already here. Astrologer Susan Miller, for instance, feels that this age of enlightenment began on October 4, 1957.

Regardless of whether the Age of Aquarius has started or is simply drawing closer, its influence is already making itself known. It can be seen in greater global connectedness, technological advancements, fairness, hope, equality, and innovation in every field. Expanded consciousness, increased environmental protections, and improved mindfulness can also be expected as the Age of Aquarius begins.

What Does the Age of Aquarius Mean for the World?

In traditional astrology, Aquarius is said to be ruled by Saturn and Uranus, though some astrologers maintain that it is ruled strictly by Uranus. Uranus can bring sudden, unexpected surprises, creating needed upheaval. Meanwhile, Saturn is a builder and can work in tandem with Uranus to make life better. These forces will ultimately affect all the world.

In the Age of Aquarius, expect those qualities to come to the forefront. For example, cruelty may become less concentrated as people get in touch with their humanity. Computers will become more powerful and helpful on both a personal and societal level. Likewise, communications will expand and bring the world together, making teamwork and collaboration more valuable than ever. Things that were once thought impossible could become physical reality. People will get more in touch with their intuition. In the Age of Aquarius’ best form, there will eventually be a greater sense of inclusion and equality across the entire world.

You may also see other Aquarian traits manifesting in the world — and yourself. These might include:

  • Loyalty
  • Protectiveness of the underdog
  • Rebelliousness
  • Fierce independence
  • Stubbornness
  • Innovation
  • Humanitarianism
  • Fairness
  • Creativity
  • A Focus on the Future
  • Wisdom

As the Age of Pisces gently recedes and the Age of Aquarius intensifies, the world will continue benefiting from the lessons learned and gifts given by Pisces. The Age of Pisces saw religion, faith, belief, empathy, compassion, deep spirituality, and even mysticism come to the forefront (among many other effects). These influences will remain, especially during this gray area between the astrological ages.

Making the Most of the Age of Aquarius

In astrology, Aquarius is known as “the Water Bearer.” Its associated element is air, and it rules the eleventh house of the zodiac. This is the house of hopes, dreams, and friendship, as well as large group collaborations and humanitarian pursuits. In Tarot, Aquarius is represented by the Star card from the Major Arcana.

Pluto has recently entered Aquarius, where it will remain until 2043. This transit brings a promise of transformation and positive change, so consider what you’d like to improve in your life and pursue it.

If you look for Aquarius in your birth chart, you can gain a better sense of how the Age of Aquarius may benefit you on an individual and spiritual level, as well as how those placements will affect your current life. To receive a personalized breakdown, check in with a professional psychic.

The Age of Aquarius, much like the receding Age of Pisces, brings innumerable gifts and opens up an abundance of possibilities to everyone. Embrace the energy of the water bearer, and get ready for a spiritually powerful astrological era.
