AGE OF AQUARIUS

Expression derived from astrology to describe the new age of freedom in all areas of human life and of peace without war among men. The term is partly derived from the medieval belief that the conjunction of certain planets was the sign of a new era in human history. It is also associated with the claim among astrologers that the aquarian personality is warm and friendly, hence the Age of Aquarius (just dawned) is to be an epoch of universal brotherhood.
