If you study enough charts, then the correlation becomes more obvious. Have a look at the birthcharts of famous inventors, they all have a strong Aquarian emphasis in their charts, like for instance saturn in aquarius, or mercury conjunct uranus. The change from the age of Pisces to the age of Aquarius doesn't happen in one day, just as your sun sign progressing into the next sign doesn't happen in a day, it's a more gradual shift. The text book descriptions of Aquarius were written by people who have put a lot of time and energy into deciphering the Aquarius influence, and I find that the large majority are very good. Maybe with time the descriptions will be modified a little, but we have to remember that the background influences of other generational planets flavour the present expression of Aquarian/uranian energy somewhat, so yes, it is difficult to discriminate between the various planetary energies.
I'm not sure, but I think the attribution of electricity and technology to Aquarius had a lot to do with the assumption that Uranus is the proper ruler of Aquarius. I think those things were attributed to Uranus before Aquarius. If that is the case, then it raises an interesting question. What if we argue that Saturn is the proper ruler of Aquarius? What attributions would it get in the light of modern advancements then?
Also, just my two cents, I think the thing we're all waiting on will come at the end of Aquarius and beginning of Capricorn. From my perspective, the entire age of Aquarius will function as a build-up to the events that will shake the world to its foundation.
