                                 The Birth of a New Consciousness and the Cycles of Time 

The book deals with the development of human consciousness and the God-image through myths, religions, and the precession of the equinoxes. We are at the threshold of a transitional period from the Age of Pisces (Fishes) to the Age of Aquarius (Water-Bearer). What is the role of humans in this New Age? What should we expect from this coming New Era? What are its symbols? What is the fate of human spirituality? What will be the new concepts of God and of religion? What will the new the God-image be? What will the role of organized religions be? When does the Water-Carrier Age start?

This book attempts to answer these questions based on well researched sources complemented and endorsed by cosmology, archeology, depth psychology, religion, Near East studies, and mythology, among other scientific disciplines. The author uses the term of Cosmosociology to clarify the epistemological terminology of the concepts “astrological ages” and “zodiacal ages” as well as the confusion created by some fundamentalist Protestant religious leaders and sensationalistic New Age writers, who have misinterpreted the signs of the transitional period as the end of the world. The truth is that there is no such thing as the end of the world, but the end of one world, the end of the Fishes’ Era, and the commencing of a new chapter in human history called the Water-Carrier (Aquarian) dispensation.

A correct understanding of the shift of cosmic ages is extremely important for humankind. This book empowers humans to be  prepared to confront the psychological upheavals that entails the shift of ages; it gives the reader an accurate perspective regarding the planetary transformations that are currently taking place, and offer hope and inspiration as we approach the Golden Age of Water-Carrier (Aquarius).
