The Age of Aquarius is an astrological term denoting either the current or upcoming astrological age , depending on the method of calculation. Astrologers maintain that an astrological age is a product of the earth's slow precessional rotation and lasts for 2,150 years, on average.

There are various methods of calculating the length of an astrological age. In sun-sign astrology , the first sign is Aries , followed by Taurus , Gemini , Cancer , Leo , Virgo , Libra , Scorpio , Sagittarius , Capricorn , Aquarius , and Pisces , whereupon the cycle returns to Aries and through the zodiacal signs again.
The Age of Aquarius
The trait of extraversion–introversion is a central dimension of human personality theories. The terms introversion and extraversion were first popularized by Carl Jung , [ 1 ] although both the popular understanding and psychological usage differ from his original intent. Extraversion tends to be manifested in outgoing, talkative, energetic behavior, whereas introversion is manifested in more reserved, quiet, shy behavior. [ 2 ] Virtually all comprehensive models of personality include these concepts in various forms. Examples include the Big Five model , Jung's analytical psychology , Hans Eysenck 's three-factor model , Raymond Cattell 's 16 personality factors , the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory , and the Myers Briggs Type Indicator . Extraversion and introversion are typically viewed as a single continuum . Thus, to be high on one it is necessary to be low on the other.
In Astrology , Fixed Signs are associated with stabilization, determination, depth and persistence. They are powerful and willfull in all they do, often achieving much more than the other two qualities. On the other hand, they are also inflexible, rigid, stubborn, opinionated and single-minded. These traits are often paired with the need to be considered "right": they will ruthlessly fight on behalf of their beliefs, regardless of any contrary beliefs.

Based on the story of Noah's Ark , this shows humans and a tiger doomed by the flood futilely attempting to save their children and cubs. A flood myth or deluge myth is a symbolic narrative in which a great flood is sent by a deity , or deities, to destroy civilization in an act of divine retribution . Parallels are often drawn between the flood waters of these myths and the primeval waters found in certain creation myths , as the flood waters are described as a measure for the cleansing of humanity, in preparation for rebirth. Most flood myths also contain a culture hero , who strives to ensure this rebirth. [ 1 ] The flood myth motif is widespread among many cultures as seen in the Mesopotamian flood stories, the Puranas , Deucalion in Greek mythology , the Genesis flood narrative , and in the lore of the K'iche' and Maya peoples of Central America , and the Muisca people in South America .
