Pisces then Aquarius?

1 - which house are we currently in, Pieces or Aquarius?
2 - when does precession take us to the next transition (year)?
3 - what is the interval (in years and degrees)?

Hello northernman. Can you please explain more, the context of your question?

Some background?

Is this question from an astrology point of view or an astronomy point of view?

Are you asking for our co-ordinate location within the Milky Way Galaxy, or are you asking what is the dominant zodiacal constellation in the sky at your location at this time of year?

Baz.

Hey Baz,
Astronomy yes, I think... what I'm trying to figure out how to calculate "the dawning of the Age of Aquarius". So I can figure what year it will happen. My research says 2100.
Maybe there's some cosmology in there too.

G'day again Northernman.

I think it is actually astrology, not astronomy.

A quick WIKI search pulled this up.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Age_of_Aquarius

Mostly people into the science here, rather than the mythical. Personally I think astrology is nonsense, but each to their own with respect and I hope this helps mate.

Baz.

astrology is for the artsy fartsies
astronomy divides the sky into constellations or which 12 or 13 seem to attract the social sciences...
Wiki - ites don't know the answer to my question - thanks for the effort.
