Encyclopedia > Age of Aquarius

The Age of Aquarius (starting around the 27th century) is one of the twelve astrological ages. According to different astrologers' calculations, probable approximated dates for entering the Age of Aquarius may be AD 2638 (Elsa M. Glover), AD 2654 (Max Heindel) or AD 2680 (Shepherd Simpson); yet all of them quite close to each other, taken into consideration that they are calculations about an event taking place six centuries from now. It is also understood by astrologers that this is not a mathematical division of time but a process, titled Orb of influence, by which one age initiates its influences, in a slowly increasing way, before the end of the previous age.

This age is regarded as an intermediary preparation toward the Christ in the etheric plane, the New Galilee: the "new heavens and a new earth" to come in a future not identified time.
