Developed in the latter half of the 20th century and usually associated with the ‘hippy’ movement, what is known as the new age movement, religion or church relates to the new astrological Age of Aquarius. An astrological age lasts for approximately 2,150 years and runs in reverse or retrograde order from the usual sun sign astrology, therefore, what is sometimes known as the Aquarian Age follows the Age of Pisces.
