The cast of Hair seemed to know the start date of the Age of Aquarius — "when the moon is in the seventh house and Jupiter aligns with Mars" — though astrologers have argued for centuries about when the sun would be lined up with the constellation of the water carrier and signal the start of an era of enlightenment. Even the constellation itself is surrounded by mystery and duality. "Aquarius" means "water carrier" in Latin, an air sign symbolized by a boy pouring water, a male figure associated with the spread of feminine wisdom into the world. Aquarius is about water. It's right there in the name.
