Exciting News For Uranus

I was surprised by a reader's comment in The Guardian yesterday that the Age of Pisces was drawing to an end. I had no idea it had even started and, as a Piscean, I do think someone should have told me.
I'd assumed we were in the Age of Aquarius because it's 30 years since young men with long hair waved their willies around on the London stage singing "this is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius." I now discover that the Age of Aquarius won't fully be with us until 2,654, so the cast of Hair were a tad premature in getting their tackle out.

In practice it's more complicated than that. Well. it would be wouldn't it? This is astrology we're talking about. It seems the different Ages overlap, particularly in the influence they exert over our lives.

The influence of the Age of Pisces causes us to show love, compassion and generosity towards our fellow man. That would explain why this blog, written by a Piscean, is dripping with the milk of human kindness - unless you happen to be a Christian, a Conservative, a homophobe, a racist, a Republican, an astrologer or Germaine Greer.

The Age of Aquarius is rational, secular and technological. Apparently, it's already brought us the internet, voice mail, microwaves and space exploration. There's just one small problem with this. Mumbo-jumbo, including astrology, has never been more popular. And religious extremists are posing an increasing threat to liberal democracy. But maybe that's just the final climactic struggle between the forces of Pisces and Aquarius. Remember that this cosmic clash runs for another 650 years by which time, according to my source, everybody will have the same advantages and the same purchasing power. How very New Labour.

You should also be aware that the Age of Aquarius is strongly associated with Uranus.
I'm not saying a word.

How does it work when the Age of Whatever overlaps with the Year of the Dragon, Rat, Mole, etc.? I've always been puzzled about this.

Thanks for all the milk of human kindness. I'm lactose intolerant myself, but this way of delivering it seems to go down fairly well. I'm not saying a word, either.

I'm as puzzled as you. If you start Googling on the subject you'll be even more baffled. I found that in some cases astrology was overlaid with Christianity. I guess it's like making a cocktail or bowl of punch - you just throw in anything that takes your fancy and don't worry too much about the effect on your brain or Uranus.
