The Age of Pisces and the Age of Aquarius: What They Are and When They Begin
The Astrological Ages are created by the movement of the Vernal Equinox and the Autumnal Equinox in retrograde motion through the fixed stars and constellations. We learn what the Vernal and Autumnal Equinoxes are and that the tropical zodiac is based on them. We also learn about the sidereal zodiac, which, like the tropical zodiac consists of 12 signs of 30 degrees each but is based on the fixed stars rather than the Vernal Equinox and the Tropical zodiac. The movement of the Vernal and Autumnal Equinoxes retrograde through the constellations is caused by the slow wobble of the Earth and is known as the precession of the equinoxes. The equinoxes (and therefore the tropical zodiac) move through the constellations at a rate of about 1 degree per 72 years, which is equal to about 2,160 years for 30 degrees, and almost 26,000 years for the entire circle of 360 degrees. The sidereal zodiac sign that the Vernal Equinox is in determines the Astrological Age. Because the exact position of the sidereal zodiac is not agreed upon, different authorities give different dates for the start of the astrological ages. According to most astrologers the Age of Pisces began roughly between about the year 1 and the year 400. The Age of Aquarius will occur some time within about 100 years from now to several hundred years from now according to most astrologers. We also consider some of the major historical themes for the past 2,000 years and how they appear to reflect the Pisces and Virgo themes that we expect from the concept of Astrological Ages. We discuss a few different possibilities for why there appears to be a correspondence between the Age of Pisces and major historical themes of the past 2,000 years. We also consider what likely themes for the Age of Aquarius are if the theory of Astrological Ages is valid.

Predicting Accidents with Midpoints
A demonstration of how a tendency to accidents can be predicted using midpoint theory. The deaths of Princess Diana and John Lennon are used to demonstrate the ideas. More research is needed to verify that the formula works, but anecdotal evidence thus far is impressive.
