The Age of Pisces

2 August 2016


As mentioned earlier in my 18 April 2016 “Wobbling Earth” blog, there is an astronomical cycle between our Earth and the Sun of 25,920 years. This cycle is known as the axial precession.

This cycle is divided in 12 astrological cycles of 2,160 years each. The start and end date of these cycles are not precisely known. Quite some people claim that the astrological Age of Pisces started with the birth of Jesus Christ. Others claim the start date of today’s Age was earlier (eg, picture) or even later.

The usual starting date of 1 AD for the Age of Pisces is no coincidence. The Age of Pisces is about the global rise of 2 monotheistic religions, being Christianity and Islam. Although Judaism and Zoroastrianism are much older monotheistic religions, they never gained so much global success.

The early Christians used the ichthys or ichthus symbol as a secret Christian symbol, known as the “sign of the fish” or the “Jesus fish”. The ichthys or ichthus, from the Greek ikhthýs (“fish“), is a symbol consisting of two intersecting arcs, the ends of the right side extending beyond the meeting point so as to resemble the profile of a fish (Wikipicture).

Carl Jung, the founder of analytical psychology, claims that the two fishes in the symbol of Pisces represent Christ and the Antichrist, eating each other’s tail. It just occurred to me that one could also argue that these two fish represent Christianity and Islam, both struggling for domination.

The transition from the Age of Aries towards the Age of Pisces created lots of change for mankind. I suppose awareness, consciousness, and individualism might be the key words to describe that change.

The Age of Aquarius (see my 18 April 2016 blog) is said to bring “a period of group consciousness”. And also a “purification of our inner and outer selves” and a “cleaning up of our planet”. This is however mirrored by “the appearance of dictators, self-expression, and the rising influence of the entertainment industry” (Wiki).

My March 2016 diagram (left) seems appropriate again. I suppose we are now in a period of chaotic change while leaving the Age of Pisces and moving towards the Age of Aquarius. This would indeed explain the feeling that has come over me lately (eg, Dark Side-2).

Change is in the air. You can feel it. Often things are easier to accept when you at least understand them. I can only hope this works the same for you.

It’s coming around again 

Change is in the air

It doesn’t always need a name

You don’t have to see it to know it’s there 

But you can feel it

You can feel it 

You can feel it (oh you can feel it) 

(Aaah) In the air 

Everything’s changing 

it happens all the time 

Don’t think too much about it 

It’ll leave you mystified 

‘Cause you can feel it 

You can feel it (oh you can feel it) 

You can feel it

You can feel it 

In the air 

In the air
