Bounds to when the ages began.

Post by James Strom » Sat Jan 26, 2013 7:28 am

While perusing the internet for information on when the zodiacal ages began I became frustated by a lack of any good information out there. The best I could get was that they last for about 2,150 years with sometime around 1 AD as the base year. Almost no information was available about when the Sun was in the various signs at the spring equinox. Thanks to Alberto Monteiro's Science Fiction Tools webpage and Patrick Moore's Astronomy Data Book I was able to calculate when these events happened.
Below is a table of when the stars of the various zodiacal signs are at 0 hours Right Ascension. The stars chosen are at the edges of the constellations and can therefore be used to determine the limits of when an age began or ended. The alpha star is also included. Note that many times the constellations overlap one another with Aries being completely enveloped by Pisces. Usually there is a lot of room for deciding when an age begins or ends. That is up to you.
0=1 BC,-1=2 BC, etc.
