The Phrase Finder
From Shakespeare's Antony and Cleopatra.
Never; he will not:
Age cannot wither her, nor custom stale
Her infinite variety: other women cloy
The appetites they feed: but she makes hungry
Where most she satisfies; for vilest things
Become themselves in her: that the holy priests
Bless her when she is riggish.

Dream Dictionary
To dream of age, portends failures in any kind of undertaking.

To dream of your own age, indicates that perversity of opinion will bring down upon you the indignation of relatives.

For a young woman to dream of being accused of being older than she is, denotes that she will fall into bad companionship, and her denial of stated things will be brought to scorn. To see herself looking aged, intimates possible sickness, or unsatisfactory ventures. If it is her lover she sees aged, she will be in danger of losing him.

Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary
Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary (1869) , by Roswell D. Hitchcock. About
Aeon(s) (Latin) Aion (Greek) [from aion time] An age, a period of time; used alone, equivalent to the word logos, but the usual meaning includes a spiritual being considered as an emanation from the divine essence and also a period of time which is brought about by the existence of this spiritual being.
In the Gnostic systems it signified the various creative powers issuing from the demiurgic Logos, and varying in degree from the most spiritual or ethereal planes to the most gross. Valentinus held that a perfect aion called Propator, equivalent to the First Logos, existed before bythos or the spatial deep (equivalent to the Second Logos). Blavatsky explains that it is "Aion, who springs as a Ray from Ain-Soph (who does not create), and Aion, who creates, or through whom, rather, everything is created, or evolves" (SD 1:349). This twofold use of a word to denote a period of time and a deific power, also appears in Manu, and in the names of the Biblical patriarchs and the periods assigned to their respective lifetimes. {See FSO 194-5 for more detail}
The adjective aeonios occurs frequently in the New Testament, where it is mistranslated as eternal or everlasting.
Yuga (Sanskrit) Age; an age of the world, of which there are four -- satya yuga, treta yuga, dvapara yuga, and kali yuga -- which proceed in succession during the manvantaric cycle. Each yuga is preceded by a period called in the Puranas, sandhya (twilight, transition period, dawn) and followed by another period of like duration often called sandhyansa (a portion of twilight). Each of these transition periods is one-tenth of its yuga. The group of four yugas is first computed by the divine years or years of the gods -- each such year being equal to 360 years of mortal men. Thus we have, in divine years:
1. Krita or Satya Yuga . . 4,000 Sandhya . . . . . . . . 400 Sandhyansa . . . . . . 400 4,800 or 1,728,000 mortal years
2. Treta Yuga . . . . . . . 3,000 Sandhya . . . . . . . . 300 Sandhyansa . . . . . . . 300 3,600 or 1,296,000 mortal years
3. Dvapara Yuga . . . . . . 2,000 Sandhya . . . . . . . . 200 Sandhyansa . . . . . . . 200 2,400 or 864,000 mortal years
4. Kali yuga . . . . . . . 1,000 Sandhya . . . . . . . . 100 Sandhyansa . . . . . . 100 1,200 or 432,000 mortal years
Total: 12,000 a Mahayuga or 4,320,000 mortal years
