Years ago I posted a quotation from Origen (dated 240 AD!) in which this early church father mentioned a progression of ages connected with “the visible signs and the invisible signs”, meaning by visible signs the zodiacal constellations and by invisible signs what we now call the tropical signs (of common western astrology); interestingly Origen went on to say that the invisible signs were likely the ones that were operative inn the changing of ages; Origen is the very earliest source I have found specifically mentioning a changing of astrological ages, his writing on this @240AD being just 50 years afterPtolemy, and coming from the same city as Ptolemy (Alexandria, Egypt). My post of Origen’s full quote was on skyscript back in 2010.
(Note; Origen was co-founder of the catechetical school of early Christianity in Alexandria and presented Christianity with a decided neo-platonic/hermetic flavor; he and his teachings were later condemned by various church authorities and most of his books were consigned to the flames as being heretical)
Good reminder to check out the entire chart!
Eminem also has a nice stellium in Libra in H10 and the Aquarius Moon in H3.
Mines in H12, trine Uran in H4.
Why not the planets that rule the Age-signs? And, we receive that energy in our charts?
A chart itself is located on the Sun's path around the Earth.
Btw, is it possible that Moon Aquarians have difficulty expressing themselves through speaking and writing? I have the problem you mentioned.
If you mean the upward pointing triangle represents Fire, why specifically Aries?
The sidereal Age of forefront Taurus/background Gemini doesn't relate to Aries or Mars.
However, these tropical Ages (I've been avoiding talking about) do, since the culture of ancient Egypt developed during the direct motion Age of forefront Scorpio/background Libra. So, the Inanna/Ishtar version of Venus arose during the forefront tropical Age of Libra AND the forefront sidereal Age of Taurus. Osiris was the original version of Pluto, appropriate for an Age of Scorpio and Aries ruled by Mars fits in nicely as well.
I see the tropical Ages and sidereal Ages as working together, rather than one excluding the other. The FIXED nature of the Egyptian Pyramids works for both--after all, they've stood their ground for over 4 Millenia!
Haven't you read Adrian Gilbert's "Orion Mystery"? In it He says the same thing that Edgar Cayce said, [He never mentions Edgar Cayce however, and I don't know if He is even aware that Edgar even lived?] that the Great Pyramid and the Sphinx date back to about 12,500 B.C. He wrote that the Sphinx originally was originally in the likeness of a lion as that was the Age of Leo when it was built. The end off that age I must add. The three pyramids of Giza laid out to mirror the stars in Orion's Belt.
Assuming that Edgar Cayce was correct in stating that the Age of Aquarius began sometime in mid 1936, and that then the first Spring Equinox was in March of 1937, then the Kali Yuga being 8880 years in length, [by my own estimation, due to my own belief that a complete cycle of the Yugas lasts apprx. 26,640 years, or apprx. 108 orbits of Pluto around our Sun ] began about 6943 B.C., the Dwapar Yuga that preceded it then began at about 11,383 B.C., thus giving good explanation as to why, and when, the legendary Hall of Records was built along when the Sphinx and Great Pyramid were constructed as it was very near, the last millennium of the Satya Yuga at the time of their construction. The knowledge had to be preserved while it still was known and understood.
Age of Leo was Fixed-Fire. So, however you look at it, the pyramids are from a Fixed modality Age.

@astrorada The ancient hindus measured all this with tropical measurements so the mesha sanskranti was tropical. ALL the old astronomy books and even the puranas are very clear on this. THe Hindus lost the knowledge of precession. They currently follow that the sun moves north on jan 14 and have a huge celebration for it, its called the Makara Sankranti, the capricorn ingress, which according to ALL Hindu texts happens when the sun moves north. The problem is, the sun moves north on December 21st. In 1951 the Indian govt gathered together some astronomers to make a agreed upon calendar in India as different regions were making some different calculations and make it hard to keep unity in govt affairs. The astronomers agreed that sankranti's are correct with tropical and not sidereal and its written into indian law. However, erroneous tradition still prevails and they are using sidereal ingresses and so the average Indian still thinks the sun moves north on Jan 14th.
Thanks leomoon. I'm looking at the two types of Precessional Ages, tropical and sidereal, as concurrent on two different wavelengths.
Possibly, one is providing knowledge about the Unconscious, the other about the Subconscious.
Although both tropicalism and siderealism are both about what's affecting us through the Astral plane, for me, it's best to concentrate on one at a time, WITHOUT claiming the other is bogus just because it has different knowledge to impart.
This is a very Piscean viewpoint, many can't comprehend. Notice the 2 fish, swimming in different directions, yet "yoked" together (the meaning of "yoga").
My tropical Sun is at 28 degrees Pisces trine Jupiter at 28 degrees Scorpio. Those remain in Pisces and Scorpio in sidereal astrology as well. They just shift from near the end to near the beginning.
