coming upon the notion of the transitional periods
of time, I was curious about the variety of speculation
concerning the pinpointing of the 'start of the
Aquarian Age'. this appears to differ based on
religious, astrological and astronomical interpretation,
depending upon how one divides up the sky, whether one
counts the New Age to start from some observable point
such as sunrise at the vernal equinox in the next sign
back (precession), or some other time posterior to this
(as in a conjunction or a triple-conjunction of Jupiter
and Saturn).

the range for this Aquarian start varied reporting dates
between early 19th century to the 2600s. most seemed
to agree that 2160 years make up the period of time
for each "Age", and that precession related to the 
wobble of Earth like a top, but where things divided
up after this seemed variable with a great number 
wanting some kind of additional marker (as is evident 
in many religious texts). the Jupiter/Saturn 
conjunction was of course popular because these
"wanderers" (planets) were of greatest duration in
periodicity, fairly regularly conjunct (20 years or 
so I think), and, yet have 'triple-conjunctions' in 
which retrograde motion interrupts the conjunction, 
as seen from Earth, reverses it, and, after the 
retrograde ends, repeats it. these are less common and 
less regular, and more highly regarded.

in researching all of this I came across the following
URLs which may be of interest to those who like to
read about archaeoastronomy with relation to ages
and astrology (in alphabetic order not sequenced by value):
