According to Sri Yukteswar, this Great Cycle has a duration of 24,000 years and corresponds to the twelve zodiac signs. Therefore, the influence of each zodiac sign lasts for about 2,000 years. Modern astrologers and astronomers believe that this Great Cycle has a duration of about 26,000 years. MCKS would take the opinion of Sri Yukteswar more seriously than that of the modern astrologers or astronomers, since he is a great yogi, a great sage and a great seer.
