|I am curious to know when the "age of Aquarius" begins.

The Age of Aquarius is Still Centuries Away

The vernal equinox will not  |       The Movement of Precession
truly enter Aquarius until   | |-7------6------5-|-4------3-------2|
about the year 2500.  This   | |Pis     |Ari     |     Tau|     Gem|
is clearly observable if we  | |--------|--------|--------|--------1
examine the sky today as to  | |Aqu     | Vernal Equinox  |     Can|
where the equinoctial points | |--------|    Positions    |--------|
are occurring, which is      | |Cap     |6500BCE to 1991CE|     Leo|
still clearly well within    | |--------|--------|--------|--------|
Virgo and Pisces.            | |Sag     |Sco     |     Lib|     Vir|
Similarly, the solstices are | |--------|--------|--------|--------|
still very clearly in        |    Positions of the Vernal Equinox
Sagittarius and Gemini, and  |
some distance from Scorpio   |   degree       nakshatr   date
and Taurus where they would  | 7 07d00mPisces U. Bhadr. 1991 CE
be in the Age of Aquarius.   | 6 00d00mAries  Ashwini    400 CE
Hence the claim of some      | 5 23d20mAries  Bharani   1280 BCE V 
Western thinkers that we are | 4 06d40mTaurus Krittik   2250 BCE E A
already in the Age of        | 3 00d00mGemini Mrigsheer 4000 BCE D G
Aquarius has no basis in the | 2 26d20mGemini Punarvasu 6000 BCE I E

that all positive changes in  - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
humanity must wait some centuries, but that the astrological changes
predicted through the shift into Aquarius cannot come into full force
until the equinox actually gets there.

NOTE: A Nakshatr is the 27th equal division of the sidereal zodiac.
