And the mind's true liberation.

"As we know from ancient Egyptian history, there are symptoms of psychic changes that always appear at the end of one Platonic month and at the beginning of another. They are, it seems, changes in the constellation of the psychic dominants, of the archetypes or "Gods" as they used to be called, which bring about, or accompany, long-lasting transformations of the collective psyche.

C G Jung 1959 AD: Flying Saucers, Introduction, pp xi - xii

"Many people are not leaving God for no God, as Eliot imagined, but for new ways of understanding God and new forms of religion to suit their contemporary situation. This often, but not always, entails a rejection of older forms of religion or notions of God. . . .

"Increasing numbers of people in the west, it seems, are prepared to be less dogmatic and more open-minded and accept beliefs from a variety of traditions without too much concern about their consistency. Reincarnation, for example, is a non-Christian belief held by an estimated 25 percent of Western Europeans, many of whom who would also appear to believe in the resurrection of Jesus and other Christian tenets about the afterlife. The New Age movement, which draws on insights from many traditions, is perhaps the best example of this eclectic approach.

SOURCE: Dr Shepherd Simpson, Astrological Historian who has compiled a fascinating and deeply researched if pointed view on the  Astrological Ages: The Age of Aries, The Age of Pisces and the Age of Aquarius, and the 2012 Maya date.
One of his premises is that C.G. Jung, the great pioneer of the unconscious and collective psyche is the main popularizer of the concept of the Age of Aquarius. Like many orthodox historical viewpoints, he rejects the view that the 30 degree zodiacal precessions are part of our legacy and particularly pregnant in the zeitgeist of the 21st century more

"The mystical theme of the Space Age is this:
the world as we know it, is coming to an end. The world as the center of the universe, the world divided from the heavens, the world bound by horizons in which love is reserved for members of the in-group: that is the world that is passing away. Apocalypse does not point to a fiery Armageddon but to the fact that our ignorance and our complacency are coming to an end. Our divided, schizophrenic world view, with no mythology adequate to coordinate our conscious and unconscious __that is what is coming to an end. The exclusivism of there being only one way in which we can be saved, the idea that there is a single religious group that is in sole possession of the truth__that is the world as know it that must

More on C.G. Jung & the precession of the equinoxes

 "If, as seems probable, the aeon of the fishes is ruled by the archetypal motif of the hostile brothers, then the approach of the next Platonic month, namely Aquarius, will constellate the problem of the union of the opposites. 

 It will then no longer be possible to write off evil as the mere privation of good; it's real existence will have to be recognized.  This problem can be solved neither by philosophy,  nor by economics, nor by politics, but only by the individual human being, via his experience of the living spirit...
C G Jung 1951 Chapter IV, The Sign of the Fishes

The northerly, or easterly fish, which the spring-point entered at about the beginning of our era83, is joined to the southerly, or westerly, fish by the so-called commissure.  This consists of a band of faint stars forming the middle sector of the constellation, and the spring-point gradually moved along its southern edge.  The point where the ecliptic intersects with the meridian at the tail of the second fish coincides roughly with the sixteenth century, the time of the Reformation, which as we know is so extraordinarily important for the history of Western symbols.  Since then the spring-point has entered the southern edge of the fish, and will enter Aquarius in the course of the third millennium84.   Astrologically interpreted, the designation of Christ as one of the fishes identified him with the first fish, the vertical one.  Christ is followed by the Antichrist at the end of time.  The beginning of the enantiodromia would fall, logically, midway between the two fishes.  We have seen that this is so.  The time of the Renaissance begins in the immediate vicinity of the second fish, and with it comes the spirit which culminates in the modern age85.

83 The meridian of the star "O" in the commissure passed through the spring-point in A.D. 11 and that of the star "a 113" in 146 BC.  Calculated on the basis of C. H. F. Peters and E. B. Knobel, Ptolemy's Catalogue of Stars: A Revision of the Almagest, Washington, 1915.
84 Since the delimitation of the constellations is known to be somewhat arbitrary, this date is very indefinite.  It refers to the actual constellation of fixed stars, not to the zodion noeton, i.e. the zodiac divided into sectors of 30ş each.  Astrologically, the beginning of the next aeon, according to the starting point you select falls between AD 2000 and AD 2200.  Starting from the star "O" and assuming a Platonic month of 2 143 years, one would arrive at AD 2154 for the beginning of the Aquarian Age, and at AD 1997 if you start at star "a 113."  The latter date agrees with the longitude of the stars in Ptolemy's Almagest, p. 199, n. 1.
85 Modern astrological speculation likewise associates the Fishes with Christ: "The fishes... the inhabitants of the waters, are firstly an emblem of those whose life being hid with Christ in God, come out of the waters of judgment without being destroyed [and illusion to fishes that were not drowned in the deluge! C. G. J.] and shall find their true sphere where life abounds and death is not: where, forever surrounding with living water and drinking from it's fountain they 'shall not perish, but have everlasting life.' ... Those who shall dwell for ever in the living water are one with Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Living One."  (E. M. Smith, The Zodia,, pp. 280f, London, 1906.)
C G Jung 1951 AD [for the German-language Version], Aion [published in the Collected Works 9, Part II] Chapter IV, The Sign of the Fishes: including the footnotes

I do not imagine that in my reflections on the meaning of man and his myth I have uttered a final truth, but I think that this is what can be said at the end of our aeon of the Fishes, and perhaps must be said in view of the coming aeon of Aquarius (the Water Bearer), who has a human figure and is next to the sign of the Fishes. This is a coniunctio oppositorum composed of two fishes in reverse.
The Water Bearer seems to represent the self. With a sovereign gesture he pours the contents of his jug into the mouth of Piscis Austrinus, 10 which symbolises a son, a still unconscious content.
C G Jung (and A Jaffe) 1961 AD [For German Language Version]: Memories Dreams Reflections, pp 312 - 313:

But if it had to perish twice,

End of the world prophecy books Listmania

by D R Hoyer

“Scholars have known for decades that the 13-baktun cycle of the Mayan ‘Long Count’ system of timekeeping was set to end precisely on a winter solstice, and that this system was put in place some 2300 years ago. This amazing fact -- that ancient Mesoamerican skywatchers were able to pinpoint a winter solstice far off into the future -- has not been dealt with by Mayanists. And why did they choose the year 2012?  One immediately gets the impression that there is a very strange mystery to be confronted here.”

Signs of Aquarius:
  • Paradigm shifts in the medical profession, from allopathic medicine to more holistic medicine.
  • We see more equality between men and women emerging.
  •  It's about space travel and computers. It's about things moving quickly and rapidly.
  • We are awakening our spiritual potential and our innate gifts as spiritual beings. This includes the awakening of clairvoyance, clairaudience, telepathy, and healing abilities.

Aquarius, the sign of Man, will take over. Perhaps somewhere in the early years of the 21st century. An important astrological event which is happening is the conjunction of winter solistice with the Galactic center, which according to vedic scholars lies at around 6 degrees of the sign, Sagittarius. The timing of the last Great Flood around 10,000 B.C coincided with conjunction of summer solstice with the Galactic center. The summer solstice is exactly opposite to the winter solstice
We are presently ending a century, a millennium, and now 180 degrees around the star clock of the procession of the equinoxes. That was the time of the great flood. That was the Age of Leo....Many ancient Star clocks depict the age of Leo The Flood happened somewhere in the beginning to the middle of Leo. There are many stories of the flood in different cultures around the world.
Precession of the Equinoxes illustrated
It takes 72 years for the precession to move 1 degree, 2,160 years for one Age, and 25,920 for the entire cycle to repeat. According to this cycle we are now at the opposite pole of the age Leo when the ice age or the last great cataclysm on earth occurred around 11,000 BC.  The most popular date used for the shif
t to the age of Aquarius is Winter Solstice 2012

Early on The worship of Mithras, the Invincible Sun god was practised all over the Roman Empire, including the British Isles.  One of Carnaval's greatest predecessor the Roman Saturnalia, a 7 day bacchanal celebrated the rebirth of the sun at the winter solistice December 23rd.

According to another version, since the binding point is below the ecliptic, and thus considered to represent being in the underworld, and that one of the figures (the one on the left) appears to escape, but the other (on the right) seems to head back toward the ecliptic, then, together with Cetus (another constellation in the Zodiac sign of Pisces), this may have formed the basis of the myth of the capture of Cerberus, one of The Twelve Labours of Herakles.
wiki/Maya_calendar The Maya believed that time was cyclical instead of the western conception of linear time. This

 means that they thought that time repeated itself, so therefore, if they knew the past they could predict the future.

The Age of Pisces during which Christianity appeared and spread out. The spread of the missionaries of a Universal-God, and  the imagery of the `Fisherman of Men, 'as well, are also strongly Piscean in that they each gather up their catches in their nets (churches.)  The fish was known to have been the secret sign used by the early Christians to identify each other. The Greek word Ichtus (=fish) was made up of the following phrase capitals (acrostic):Iesous Christos Theou Uios Soter (=Jesus Christ Son of God, the Saviour.)Buddha, who had five planets in the Sign Aries at Midheaven in his chart, ushered in a new individualistic belief yet belongs more to the following age of Pisces and its two great figures of Jesus and Mohamed. Buddha came from an angel. That was several hundred years before Jesus Christ was born from a virgin
The Piscean age started giving way with the advent of scientific thought during the Renaissance, but it still holds the majority of humanity in its grasp through the orthodox religions, blind patriotism, and growing financial inequality . Due to concentration on the lower energies of this sign especially in the last century, the world has virtually become a 'market' and 'money' its God. One can never be sure when exactly the energies of Aquarius, the sign of Man, will take over. My view is that this change would take place somewhere in the early years of the 21st century. . . .
"When did the archaic world come to an end?
There are many testimonials of the bewildering change. Plutarch, a true pagan, pondered about A.D. 60, why it was "that oracles had ceased to give answers." It is on this occasion that he told the tale of the voice that came from the sea, telling the pilot that
 "the Great Pan was dead."

"Recounting it on a previous occasion (above, chapter XX, p. 277), it was noted that the experts of the Emperor Tiberius decided that it must be Pan no. 3. Another world-age must be passing, together with the gods who belonged to it. For traditionalists it was indeed one more sign of the passing of the Age of Aries and the advent of the Age of Pisces. Historically, it is known as the advent of the Christian revolution, marked in so many ways by the sign of the Fish

"There were seven degrees of initiation, these degrees allowed the neophyte to proceed through the seven celestial bodies. Allowing the reversing of the human souls descend into the world at birth.

The initiations involved purifications and ordeals. 

Mithras and Mithraism By Payam Nabaraz
I’m a Pisces fish and the river runs through my soul

And I’ll be swimming until I can find those waters

That’s the one unbounded ocean of bliss

That’s flowing through your parents, sons and daughters

But still an easy thing for us to miss

The Age of Aries (c.2150 — 1 B.C.)
Bronze age in CentralAries Symbol  Europe. Arrival of Dorians in Greece. Rise of Classical Greece and Rome. Abraham’s sacrifice of Ram; Mosaic Judaism. Iron age. Life of Gautama Buddha.  It appears that Babylonians, Greeks, Persians and Egyptians all agreed on the name of the Ram for this constellation.
Dr Shepherd Simpson, Astrological Historian says: The Vernal Equinox Point could be seen against the constellation of Aries from about 1875 BC and left Aries to move into Pisces in about 100 BC, using modern constellation boundaries. The modern Aries-Pisces boundary seems to coincide quite well with the one that astrologers of the time used. Dr. Shepard believes it was the Greeks who defined the Great Ages but the evidence hereabouts points the Babylonians or Aryans of India during the Age of Taurus

African carving of Ram

" The trail leads us high up to where we get a breathless view of the astounding Ethiopian religion, which gives us the answer to many strange and incomprehensible traits in the Ethiopian of today. Next follows the chapter on the "Wonderful Ethiopians," who produced fadeless colors that have held their hues for thousands of years, who drilled through solid rock and were masters of many other lost arts ....

Wonderful Ethiopians of the Ancient Cushite Empire
by Drusilla Dunjee Houston (1876-1941) [copyright1926, no renewal] Houston believed the Cushite civilization to be the motherland of humanity. The Cushite civilization are the earliest known Black African civilization who occupied what is now the Sudan, with its capital at Meroe on the Nile. se . Reaching its peak between 1750 and 1500 B.C.E., and lasting until the fourth century C.E., the Cushite empire . At their high point, Cushites even conquered and ruled ancient Egypt from 750-650 B.C.E.

The Age of Aries informed the civilizations of the era. The Greek bring the Arian idea of individualism to full flower.
Daphne was a nymph who was turned into a laurel tree while attempting to escape the advances of the sun god Apollo.
 In the present time; Apollonian thinking has been contrasted by Nietzsche and other cultural scholars like Camille Paglia with its opposite, Dionysian. Dionysus is the Greek God of Carnaval who became Bacchus in the Roman empire. Drunkenness and Downloadmadness are Dionysian because they break down a man's individual character; all forms of enthusiasm and ecstasy are Dionysian, for in such states man gives up his individuality and submerges himself in a greater whole: music is the most Dionysian of the arts, since it appeals directly to man's instinctive, chaotic emotions and not to his formally reasoning mind.  
These thinkers make a convincing case that the story of Western culture is the push-pull battle between these two forces and the untamed roving eye. Apollo, always surrounded by a company of beautiful young men, appears as the god of light, movement, music, civilization, healing, order, structure, and beauty. Dionysus wanders through the mountains and the forests with his female companions, the raving, blood-crazed maenads. He is the god of religious ecstasy, of deep stillness, sexual frenzy, animal nature.
Mass media understands these forces and fans the flames for success and profit.

The Greeks worshipped Apollo, the god of the Sun. Sun finds its exaltation in the sign of Aries and thus its worship returned once again.

Sun worship returned among the Egyptians through the Pharaoh Amenhotep IV. Egyptian mythology - Wiki
Jews became the chosen ones for this Age with Moses laying down the guiding principles which are very much a mixture of the sign Aries and the Sign Libra, its polar opposite. The old testament is filled with warrior conquest and nomadic content for its religious history and symbolism but it most Arian concept is  the One-God Creator concept. Monotheistic Judaism won out over the golden cow through great spiritual personalities like Abraham (19th century B.C.) and Moses (13th century B.C.). The symbol of the ram (or the Passover lamb) appeared as an object of sacrifice instead of worship, as a reaction against the belief of the previous age. 

 Romans worshipped Mars along with Zeus, as the God of War. Since much of their civilization was based upon war, they had special regard for Mars above all the rest, which is the planetary ruler of Aries. It was the age of the military throughout the world.

Buddha, who had five planets in the Sign Aries at Midheaven in his chart, ushered in a new individualistic belief which did not need help of any Gods and Goddesses for attaining Nirvana, very much in keeping with Arian spirit.

Other great historical personalities heralding new beliefs include Zarathustra incarnated (7th  century ), Confucius and Lao-Tse (6th century), Socrates (5th century)  Aryan-Hinduism also shared the Aries symbolisms in their culture

The AGE of ARIES was about expansion of the Empire. Aries is A FIRE Sign, Fire radiates outward. It seems very natural then when individuals with ARIES SUN SIGNS tend to be the adventurers.

The AGE of ARIES is the age of the expanding Ancient Empires; Chinese, Persian, Greek and then Roman. Each of these civilizations sought to always bring more land and territory under their control. These Empires did so by conquering the indigenous peoples of the lands as they expanded outward.

Tribe of Israel worshipping golden calf

When Moses threw out the golden calf, he knew it was the end of the Taurus Age or the fourth age in our present great year. He instructed his followers to get rid of the bull, put lambs' blood on the doors, and place Rams' horns in the temples. By looking at the Master Calendar, the Mazzaroth, or the Zodiac in the heavens, anyone could see that it was the dawning of the Age of Aries the ram or lamb. It was the start of the fifth age in our current great year.
The Epic Story of Gilgamesh is informed by the slaying of the bull to make way for new age of Aries
Jason and the Argonauts who quests for the Golden Fleece is also considered a creation myth associated with the  age of Aries
His travels lead him to the island of Lemmos where he encounters a tribe of Amazons. This island likely inspired the influential story of the amazon Queen Califia who ruled the golden island called California.
