The Zodiacal Basis of Religion and Myth

The following YouTube clip is from the documentary Zeitgiest. Despite the ominous music this is an informative snipet in terms of understanding how the zodiac has influenced religion and myth through time immemorial. It discusses symbolism of previous astrological ages in a way that is helpful towards understanding the astrologically coded language of spiritual texts and myths. The narrator states as a fact that the age of Pisces continues from 0 AD to 2150 AD, meaning the Age of Aquarius doesn't dawn until some 140 years from now. I am inclined to believe that the Aquarian Age is well underway. Patrizia Norelli-Bachelet writes in The Gnostic Circle that the Aquarian Age began in 1926, the same year as Sri Aurobindo's Siddhi Day, when Krishna Consciousness 'descended' into him. After seeing the video, it is easier to comprehend that even the Buddhist prophecy of Maitreya -- in which the Buddha would 'return' after some 2,500 years and dissolve his own religion by a greater universal truth -- is a recognition of the coming of the Age of Aquarius the Friend. Mitra - the Sanskrit root of Maitreya, means Friend.
