The Next BIG Thing! (Condensed Version)

What is the next big thing that will greatly impact the world?  What is a big thing?  If we start with contemporary history, 9/11 was the first big thing of this century.  As a consequence, the USA with the help of allies quickly invaded Afghanistan, found an excuse to invade Iraq in 2003 and resurrected the defacto Christian versus Islam modern Crusade against the infidels – the end result has been as abysmal as the original Crusades about a thousand years earlier.  The next big thing to appear was the sub-prime mortgage crisis (2007 – 2010) in American real estate mortgages leading to the Global Recession (Global Financial Crisis).

Following or overlapping with the above, the Arab Spring (Dec 2010 – Sep 2014) commencing in Tunisia and soon spread to Libya, Egypt, Yemen, Syria, and Bahrain with unrest in Morocco, Iraq, Algeria, Iranian Khuzestan, Lebanon, Jordan, Kuwait, Oman, and Sudan.  Out of the Arab Spring, or following Arab Winter (which extended to 2019 at least), evolved the Islamic State (ISIS) and by 2014 ISIS was able to drive Iraqi troops out of key cities and it even captured Mosel which it held until 2017.

Next on the scene appeared populace leaders such as Donald Trump (USA), Narendra Modi (India), Andrés Manuel López Obrador, Matteo Salvini (Italy), Jair Bolsonaro (Brazil), Rodrigo Duterte (Philippines) and Boris Johnson (UK).  These populace leaders have usually polarized their societies and depending upon which political side you take, they will make their country great again or are throwbacks to a previous uglier time in the world.  Finally, to cap off these two decades was the COVID-19 pandemic creating the greatest disruption in the world since the Second World War. Based on precedent, there is every reason to believe that the world will continue to stumble from one upset or disaster to another as was the case with the first two decades of the 21st century, not to mention the last many thousands of years of disasters and turmoil that regularly visits our world.

The above provides a context for the extent of what the next big thing may be, but exactly what is next in line and when may it appear?  This may be answered by recognizing the hidden structure that strongly influences all of the above.  The hidden structure is the sub-periods of the current Age of Aquarius.  The most relevant sub-periods associated with the above are micro-ages and micro-age decans.  Each age of some 2150 years has 12 sub-ages of around 178 years, and these each have 12 micro-ages of slightly less than 15 years, and naturally any decan will be a third – or nearly five years.

Table 1 – the Cancer & Gemini micro-ages with their micro-age decans

The key common sign for the first three decades of the 21st century is Cancer due to the Cancer micro-age and overflow (Feb 2000 – Dec 2014 – Nov 2029) (see Table 1).  Under the sign Cancer there is a strong focus on Islamic nations as Islam is a Pisces-Cancer religion compared to its sibling Christianity which is a Pisces-Scorpio religion.  This helps explain the whole Islamic orientation of world politics since 9/11 commencing with the 9/11 attack on the USA, the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, the Arab Spring (and Winter) and fall of Afghanistan to the Taliban in 2021.  It also explains the spectacular rise of China in these same two decades as Cancer is the major sign for China.

The Cancer micro-age (Feb 2000 – Dec 2014) commenced with the Leo micro-age decan overflow (Feb 2000 – Jan 2005) but Aquarius is the second strongest sign in the astrological signature for the USA (age empire of the Pisces-Aquarius age).  Leo will ‘attack’ Aquarius, which played out with 9/11.  The Leo micro-age overflow is of the same timespan as the Pisces micro-age and the Pisces element focused upon the primary sign for the USA which it harnessed in its invasion of Iraq in 2003 and its success is attributable to the Pisces quasi micro-age decan (Nov 2003 – Jul 2007).  (quasi periods are not shown in Table 1 and are always based on the last half of a period combined with the first half of its overflow – see Age of Aquarius for Dummies ).

The earlier crash of 2000 is also worth mentioning as it was due to investors’ interest in internet related companies increased to a frenzied level following massive growth and adoption of the internet.  Under the Leo micro-age decan overflow (Feb 2000 – Jan 2005) Aquarius technology is under ‘attack’ due to Aquarius and Leo being opposite signs.  In April 2000 the Nasdaq Composite index fell 25% in just one week.

The sub-prime mortgage crisis (2007 – 2010) is associated with Cancer as homes are ruled by Cancer, and its appearance in 2007 basically coincided with the arrival of the Cancer quasi micro-age (Jul 2007 – Jun 2022).  The path to the Great Recession (2007 – 09) is readily associated with the Scorpio micro-age decan and overflow (Jul 2007 – Jul 2012 – Dec 2014), and though this recession was nominally only a few years, it dampened the economies of many countries for many more years.  This same Scorpio micro-age decan and overflow also provided the revolutionary impetus for the Arab Spring (Dec 2010 – late 2014) with Cancer also playing a dominant background influence.

Cancer is also the sign of populace leaders because Cancer is the sign of the common people and is opposite Capricorn – the sign of wisdom of the elders or wise people – something that populace leaders appear to lack.  Though elements of populace leaders appeared before the Cancer micro-age overflow such as Sarah Palin, it was not until the Cancer micro-age overflow commencing December 2014 that they became a worldwide phenomenon. For example Donald Trump won the US presidential elections in November 2015 and Rodrigo Duterte became president of the Philippines on 30 June 2016.

The nascent Aquarius element from the Aquarius micro-age decan (Dec 2014 – Dec 2019) also fed into these populace leaders (as it did in the 1920s and 30s under the Aquarius micro-age and overflow) as community, social and political norms are radicalized by Aquarius – Aquarius and Cancer are also both associated with mental instability and helps explain the rise of conspiracy babble around the world (that behaves like a virus)!

Finally, the COVID-19 pandemic came to international attention the very same month that the Aquarius micro-age decan (Dec 2014 – Dec 2019) entered its more powerful Aquarius micro-age decan overflow (Dec 2019 – Nov 2024).  Aquarius is the sign of disruption, and the greatest disruption that human society has withstood to date was under the Aquarius micro-age and overflow (1910 – 2025 – 1940) which saw the First World War, Spanish flu, Great Depression, communism and the beginning of the Second World War.

To gain a tighter understanding of what the next big thing may be, it is necessary to see what follows the Aquarius micro-age decan.  What ‘follows’ in macro-astrology is always an overlapping influence. Firstly, since December 2014, the world entered the Cancer micro-age overflow (Dec 2014 – Nov 2029) but in December 2014 also arrived the overlapping Gemini micro-age (Dec 2014 – Nov 2029) which commenced with the Aquarius micro-age decan and overflow (Dec 2014 – Dec 2019 – Nov 2024).  The next cab off the rank is the overlapping Libra micro-age decan and overflow (Dec 2019 – Nov 2024 – Nov 2029) and as usual, the second half is always the most powerful half.  It is Libra that provides the nexus for the next big thing with the emphasis on November 2024 to November 2029.

You may be in for a big surprise with Libra – I certainly was!  I have just completed extensive research on every Libra micro-age and Libra micro-age decan that has appeared in the world since the arrival of the Age of Aquarius in 1433.  A naïve expectation of a Libra micro-age decan is that it may focus upon art, women, justice, parties, alliances, parks and gardens and so on.  Well, I can confirm that all these are associated with nearly every Libra micro-age or micro-age decan, but the most notable and strongest element associated with these Libra periods is not only war and conflict, but war and conflict at the upper level of possibilities and that usually breaks new ground in its extent and destruction. 

Following are some abbreviated extracts from my research with the focus upon the details of war and conflict in previous Libra micro-ages or micro-age decans since the arrival of the Age of Aquarius:

Libra micro-age and overflow (March 1463 – March 1478 – March 1493)

  • Granada War (Reconquista) to expel Muslims from Spain.
  • Resolution of the War of the Roses in England (Libra can bring peace if war or conflict is already present)

Libra micro-age decan and overflow (December 1527 – December 1532 – November 1537)

  • The ‘divorce’ of England from the Roman Catholic Church over the issues of multiple (Libra) marriages by King Henry VIII. 
  • Beginning of the Protestant movement in earnest spearheaded by Martin Luther in Germany leading to a major religious-political schism in Europe.
  • Spain and Portugal were dividing the world in two in preparation for the invasion and subjugation of the New World
  • Austrian and Turks commenced a bitter 150 years of conflict.

Libra micro-age decan and overflow (August 1582 – August 1587 – July 1592)

  • Anglo-Spanish War (1585–1604) which included the famous Spanish Armada (1588) with 130 ships and 30,000 men when Catholic Spain attempted to invade Protestant England
  • The War of the Three Henrys (1587-89) was one of a series of French civil wars under the umbrella of the French Wars of Religion (1562 – 98).
  • Japanese invasion of Korea (1592 -1598) was really the beginning of a proxy war between Japan and China with Korea the stepping stone from Japan to China.

Libra micro-age and overflow (April 1627 – May 1642 – April 1657)

  • The British Civil Wars (1639 – 1653) included rebellions, civil wars and invasions which ended when the English parliamentarian army won followed by the execution of the king.

Libra micro-age decan & overflow (Jan 1692 – Jan 1697 – Dec 1701)

  • The Nine Years’ War (1688–1697) with the fiercest fighting in 1692-3.  It was a conflict between France and an opposing European coalition which included England, Spain and Portugal with theaters also in North America and India. This war is considered to be the first global war
  • The Nine Years’ War encompassed Ireland and Jacobite risings in Scotland (with some later elements of the Jacobite risings partly portrayed in the TV series Outlander), and North America between French and English settlers and their respective Indigenous allies. 
  • War of the Spanish Succession (1701–1714) due to unresolved issues of the Nine Years’ War with a focus on maintaining the (Libra) balance of power between different European countries.

Libra micro-age decan & overflow (Sep 1746 – Sep 1751 – Aug 1756)

  • Seven Years’ War (1756 – 1763) and some historians call it World War Zero as many considered it a world war harking back to the Nine Years’ War (1688–1697) of the previous Libra period. 
  • The Seven Years’ War in the North American theater was called the French and Indian War (1754 – 1763).

Libra micro-age and overflow (June 1791 – April 1806 – March 1821)

  • The French Revolution was already underway before this Libra period but the frenzy of beheadings was delayed until after the arrival of the deadly Scorpio sub-age in 1791 with Scorpio’s focus on death. 
  • Napoleonic Wars (1805 – 1815) and included the minor War of 1812 between the UK and the USA.  More French soldiers were casualties in the Napoleonic wars than in the First World War.

Libra micro-age decan and overflow (May 1856 – May 1861 – Apr 1866)

  • American Civil War (1861 – 65) with around 600,000 killed
  • Taiping Rebellion in China – the bloodiest civil war in world history with 30 to 50 million killed

Libra micro-age decan and overflow (Dec 1910 – Nov 1915 – Oct 1920)

  • First World War (1914 – 18) with around 22 million deaths, it was one of the largest wars and deadliest conflicts in history.

Each and every Libra micro-age or micro-age decan since the arrival of the Age of Aquarius has a focus on upper level major conflicts with ever increasing violence and destruction, and if the current Libra period  follows form, a major conflict is on our doorstep and most likely more extensive than any conflict experienced since the Second World War. The most likely timeframe is from December 2024 onward for almost five years in parallel with the Libra micro-age overflow but it could commence any time between now and December 2024.

Who will be the combatants in this new conflict?  The most likely scenario is the USA, its NATO allies and other Anglo-Saxon nations against China and Russia as these two blocs represents the current strongest international balance of power.  With the two main protagonists probably being the USA and China, a brief examination of both may provide relevant insights into their performance in such an international tussle associated with these small Libra periods. 


Libra is a major sign in China’s astrological signature as Libra is associated with the whole of the Far East.  In the Libra micro-age decan and overflow (Dec 1527 – Dec 1532 – Nov 1537) China experienced an enormous drought (1528 – 1530) in Henan province coupled with a gigantic swarm of locusts which deprived the region of harvests for the next two years, killing off half the people in some communities, due to starvation and cannibalism.  The following Libra micro-age decan and overflow (Aug 1582 – Jul 1592)  saw the first Japanese invasion of Korea in 1592 which was really the beginning of a proxy war between Japan and China with Korea the stepping stone from Japan to China.

China was also a major focus within the next Libra micro-age and overflow (Apr 1627 – May 1642 – Apr 1657) when in 1627 the Manchus took advantage of Korea’s war-weakened state and invaded in 1627 and 1637.    In 1641 a massive epidemic struck in northern and central China with some local areas and towns having 90% of the local populace wiped out, which may have contributed to the fall of the Ming Dynasty just three years later. In 1644 the invading Qing army captured Beijing marking the beginning of Manchu rule over China proper. 

China’s affinity to Libra was again on display in the Libra micro-age and overflow (Jun 1791 – Apr 1806 – Mar 1821)when in 1793, the isolationist Chinese government rebuffed an attempt by the British to sell their manufactured goods to China and install a British ambassador in the Chinese court.  Finally in the Libra micro-age decan and overflow (Dec 1910 – Nov 1915 – Oct 1920) commenced with the formation of the Republic of China in 1912 after a revolution which overthrew the Qing dynasty, ending 5,000 years of monarchy in China and 267 years of the Manchu dynasty. 

Obviously Libra is a sign of ferment for China and suggests that major calamities are often on its doorstep and often indicates dynastic/regime change.  If Cancer is the primary sign for China, Libra activated the lowly 4th house and detracts from its 10th house of government and authority.  If the approaching conflict deeply involves China, it does not portend a favorable result for China, unless a regime change turns out to be favorable?

The current Gemini sub-age decan and overflow (1970 – 2029 – 2059) is not favorable to China (especially in the second half) as Gemini sits at the 12th house position to China’s Cancer.  However, within this Gemini age-decan is the Cancer micro-age and overflow (2000 – 2014 – 2019) and we have seen China’s rise to the second strongest superpower in the world under this micro-age and overflow.  This rise is so potent, many pundits have claimed that China will become the number one superpower soon.  However, there are only a few more years of the Cancer micro-age overflow concluding in November 2029 with a waning influence over China for the following 10 years as it confronts the opposing Capricorn micro-age decan and overflow (Nov 2029 – Oct 2034 – Oct 2039).  This will not be a fortuitous period for the world, and specifically Cancer-orientated regions such as China, Russia, the Middle East and Islamic countries.


What is the astrological environment for the USA in the possible approaching major conflict?  The American Civil War demonstrated that the USA was and remains like conjoined twins, who can never get away from each other, and often detest each other.  This is again the reality in the USA when the rural voters throughout the USA voted for Trump, while urban areas voted Democrat.  The end of 2021 is equivalent to 1858 – only three years before the beginning of the American Civil War.  Does this mean that the USA is heading for another civil war?

A very good argument can be made that the USA is heading towards a period of even greater internal conflict than has been experienced over the last five years, but the world is no longer in the Pisces sub-age decan as was the case with the Civil War.  In place of Pisces, the world is currently under the influence of the Gemini sub-age decan and overflow (1970 – 2029 – 2088) but Gemini is not part of the astrological signature for the USA. 

The American Civil War also occurred at the highpoint of the Cancer sub-age decan and overflow (1791 – 1851 – 1910) and Cancer is opposite Capricorn, the third strongest sign in the USA’s astrological signature. The current Cancer micro-age and overflow (2000 – 2014 – 2029) will also provoke tensions in the USA but compared to the 18th century, this Cancer influence is very mild.

With Pisces the strongest sign for the USA, and Cancer opposed to Capricorn, the third strongest sign in the astrological signature, the current Gemini SAD&OF is not of the same league.  However, Gemini is probably detrimental to the USA on the world stage, as Gemini sits at the lowly 4th house position to Pisces which detracts from its 10th house authority, and shifts the focus to domestic over international issues – which was played out by Trump through avoiding new foreign wars or conflicts, and extracting US troops from ongoing international conflicts whenever possible.  President Biden has continued this trend with the withdrawal of American military from Afghanistan in 2021. 

We can certainly expect a period of greater lack of social and political cohesion in the USA, especially in the Libra MADOF (Nov 24 – Nov 29) with the situation deteriorating beforehand, but it should be nowhere near the level of stress that existed in the buildup and execution of the American Civil War.  If the major problem the USA is faced with is not civil war or vigorous internal dissent, how will it handle a major external conflict?

It cannot be overstressed that the USA is the age-empire of our time, and once an age-empire gets established, they don’t like to be kicked around, and they tend to have longevity – at least for the first half of the age, which means the USA should retain its international position until at least the midway point of the Age of Aquarius around 2507 AD.  In contrast, China has a far more resilient history for cultural longevity, but not for its ruling dynasties or regimes that come and go regularly (similar to the lunation cycle).  If China is the main protagonist in any approaching international military polarization, it will continue to exist afterwards, but it may be restructured – as has been the case for the previous thousands of years. 

The Libra age-decan and overflow (1433 – 2149 – 2865) does not suggest the eradication of opponents, as Libra is the sign of balance.  For most of the current millennia, a major polarization in the world is indicated, and this polarization will strengthen over the coming centuries.  This is in strong contrast to the last two ages at least.  This strongly suggests that China, for better or worse, will remain as the yin balance to American yang for most of this Millennium.  Therefore any approaching conflict may represent one of a number of international adjustments of this very long term geopolitical situation?

Each Libra period appears to outstrip the previous one in ferocity, and so if this is literally taken to be the case in the coming conflagration, the use of atomic weapons cannot be ignored as nations have historically used every means of weaponry available to defeat their enemies.  This is reinforced by the fact that the world remains in the most potent quarter (1970 – 2059) of the Scorpio sub-age and overflow (1791 – 1970 – 2148).  The risk level for atomic weapons remains very high until 2059 at least.  The only other viable possibility is that in place of open warfare, the world descends to all out cyber warfare, as Scorpio is a key driver for the internet (along with Gemini).

The Pisces age overflow and Pisces quasi-age provides the base environment for the world until around 2507.  This therefore promotes the possible precipitation for conflict could be the South China Sea as the oceans and islands are ruled by Pisces.  For the rest of the world, a bunch of islands and reefs recently occupied and claimed by China in the South China Sea may seem a ridiculous precipitation for an international conflict but not according to Daniel Yergin, author of The New Map:

“ China’s efforts to assert sovereignty in the South China Sea is perhaps the most volatile foreign policy issue in the world today.  Through its waters pass $US3.5 trillion of world trade — two-thirds of China’s maritime trade, and over 40 percent of Japan’s and 30 percent of total world trade. Eighty percent of China’s oil imports pass through it. Its waters are crucial for food security. It provides much of the seafood consumed both in China, the world’s largest consumer of fish, and Southeast Asia.

Those waters are also fraught with risk. ‘A single irresponsible action or instigation of conflict,’ warned Vietnam’s prime minister, ‘could well lead to the interruption of these huge trade flows, with unforeseeable consequences not only to regional economies but also to the entire world.’”

China’s main sign is Cancer, the sign of perimeters and thus borders, and China does not have a history of military engagements with countries not on its borders – unlike the Europeans and their offspring’s who historically have marauded everywhere possible.  But the South China Sea is on China’s borders, as is Taiwan, Tibet and India.  Any coming conflict with China is bound to be on its ‘edges’.

The astrology indicates that the next big thing should be war or some alternative style of major conflict – above and beyond what the world has experienced since the end of the Second World War, and I have provided some speculative scenarios of the combatants and details which may or may not be correct. The most likely alternative to this is the major existential crisis facing the world – Climate Change. 

The necessary international alliance required to tackle Climate Change is also more likely to take shape under the Libra micro-age decan and overflow (Dec 2019 – Nov 2024 – Nov 2029) with the second half (Nov 2024 – Nov 2029) the more likely timeframe. This may deteriorate into a bipolar approach to Climate Change with two intractable opposing sides, or it could be a success as Libra can bring peace or accord in a time of disagreement. A major conflict in parallel to a Climate Change accord is also a possibility.

There is one more hurdle between the world in 2021 and the approaching Libra highpoint around November 2024 and that is the replacement of the Cancer quasi micro-age (Jul 2007 – Jun 2022) with the Gemini quasi micro-age (Jun 2022 – Jan 2037) in June 2022. A quasi micro-age cusp is really a gear change, and the approaching cusp in June 2022 indicates a change down in gear for Cancer and a rise in gear for Gemini making their respective influences about equal.

Perhaps Greta Thunberg significantly increases her influence amongst students? Maybe the European Union struggles to retain all of its existing members as Gemini promotes fragmentation? Does an internet crash or incident become a major liability in some way? Will the internet be militarized? Cities may start to flex their influence at Climate Change talks? Or the extraction of vehicles from fossil fuels radically accelerates? China comes off the boil and starts showing early signs of political fracture? My first choice is the internet. Unfortunately the track record of the human race is that governments will use any newly developed or created technology for war – and so we may expereince some kind of militarization of the internet which is already showing this tendency.

We cannot expect astrology to provide a high definition video with stereoscopic audio of the future as its track record does not support this.  Much fanfare was made of the predictions of the COVID-19 pandemic by the French astrologer, the late Andre Barbault, but even in his predictions, he could not be definitive and he certainly did not get the major supporting detail correct. However, merely defining the outline of the next big thing is an achievement in itself if it comes to pass!

Science under Attack – An Astrological Analysis

The COVID-19 pandemic has stressed people and societies around the world, and under stress, organisms or societies will behave differently than normal.  In stressed humans, there is a tendency for the mind to divert from the rational side of the brain to the animal-emotive side promoting irrational responses. (see Gemini’s Role in our Modern World or Battle of the Brains)  Two very dominant social manifestations of this stress is the rejection of science and the rise of conspiracy theories to such an extent, social media is overflowing with conspiracy babble.  Where is this heading?

I cannot take any more of the hatred and division.

The ugliness, selfishness and pettiness of people who put their own selfish needs above those who need their help so they can feel safe in their community is such a hard pill to swallow.

Those in the community who have to fear for their well-being just from going out getting groceries or sending their immune compromised child to school, all the while worrying about their child’s safety and health- sad.

I am tired of the uneducated calling out professionals with such arrogance that it makes me ashamed to be human.

The friends who ditch you, because your beliefs are not the same and who mistake beliefs for science.

The lack of compassion, kindness and humility is at an all-time low.

What we are seeing now is the unravelling of society. It is based on a level of depravity never seen before, even by those who are supposedly our elected leaders, but who are anything but. is the only thing that matters- people are expendable.

It is becoming so evident where corruption lies- either follow the money trail or observe the massive egos of our leaders who fail to do what they signed up for- namely to be a wise guardian for all people.

Real leaders manage to bring those they are supposed to lead together and not divide them even further.

Real leaders exhibit wisdom and know when to support their flock and deal with others who are out of line effectively.

But most of all I am tired of of the arrogance and stupidity of people out there who do not know how stupid they are, making life incredibly difficult for those who are not.

It is beyond sad.

Elke Hutton Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare

The conspiracy babble and the rejection of science by a significant minority of even so-called advanced western countries is experiencing its heyday as Elke notes above.  The astrology underpinning the contemporary anti-science agenda is driven by the Cancer micro-age and overflow (Feb 2000 – Dec 2014 – Nov 2029) with Cancer peaking at the midway point.  The combination of a period and overflow can be broken up into four sections like the four parts of the lunation cycle.  The strongest part is the third part, and in this case covers the period (December 2014 to June 2022). It is in this timeframe that the influence of Cancer is at its peak. (see Age of Aquarius for Dummies )  It doesn’t disappear after June 2022, it merely subsides in intensity like the waning Moon but it will have its final last stand between May 2027 to November 2029 – especially the second half from August 2028 onward.

Cancer is opposite Capricorn – the sign of rationality and science (which does not imply that science has a monopoly on rationality otherwise they would not reject astrology due to their collective belief system).  In a Cancer period, science and scientists are in ‘detriment’ but this is not limited to scientists.  Anyone sprouting wisdom, rationality or logic will also be under attack.  For example, in September 2021 government prosecutors in Mexico were seeking arrest warrants for more than 30 scientists in an attempt at silencing them.

The National Council on Science and Technology (Conacyt) has described the reaction to the arrest warrant applications as “a concerted wave of disinformation,” which was spreading “terror” in the scientific community.

David Agren, Prosecutors in Mexico seeking arrest warrants for more than 30 scientists, Sat 25 Sep 2021

Another Cancer archetype is the common people – the average Joe Blow who is just getting on with their life the best way they know how.  Under Cancer, many average folk are going to be very influenced by other folk of their same ilk rather than rationalists and scientists.  This is highly compounded by social media, and the world has only really starting to come to grips with social media – or at least online activity since about 2000. Most things in this world have a positive and negative side and we are definitely experiencing the insidious side of social media this decade. 

In addition, Cancer is the most hypersensitive sign in the zodiac, and one manifestation of this hypersensitivity is fear.  People are afraid and afraid people will promote a storm in a teacup and perceive a negative flavor in unfolding events.  One classic manifestation of this was that a hugely significant percentage of American voters’ fear that their last presidential election was stolen from them.  People influenced by fear rarely respond to rationality – it’s the nature of our human mind.

The year 2000 was not only the beginning of the Cancer micro-age and overflow, but also stage two of the Gemini sub-age decan and overflow (1970 – 2029 – 2059) with stage two (2000 – 2029) preparing for the following more powerful stage three.  Nevertheless, stage two promotes Gemini and Gemini has always been associated with communication and thus associated with the internet.  Gemini is opposite Sagittarius, which means Gemini is at odds with Sagittarius, which is rather unfortunate in one respect as Sagittarius rules truth.  This is why Gemini has often been associated with petty thieves, used car salesmen and lawyers – none of which have shown an admiration or attraction to truth.  We don’t live in a time where truth has a strong reputation.  Social media bombards us with information but its integrity is always questionable.

When we combine anti-science Cancer with anti-truth Gemini, the recipe for the current anti-science period is forming, but another ingredient is involved – Aquarius.  The Gemini micro-age has three micro-age decans (see Table 1), and the first is the Aquarius micro-age (Dec 2014 – Dec 2019) with its overflow period extending to November 2024.   This also has a four stage structure, and the most potent phase is the third stage covering the period December 2019 to June 2022.  What Aquarius brings to the recipe is radicalization with people deserting the center and bolstering the fringes – and therefore promoting crazy leftists or looney right politics – that normally would not be given the time of the day in normal times. The last time fascism and communism where competing against each other and normality was under the Aquarius micro-age and overflow (1910 – 1925 – 1940).

Table 1 – the Gemini micro-age (and Cancer micro-age overflow) with its three miocro-age decans

However, Aquarius also brings another element, excitement, so no matter which fringe direction society is leaning, many people are going to be extremely excited about it.  While there are numerous examples from around the world, the classic was the election of Donald Trump as president of the USA, with his Make America Great Again (MAGA) and incredibly excited followers.  I remember coming across very excited astrologers online predicting the election of Donald Trump in the lead up to the 2016 US presidential elections – and while I had experienced right wing orientated astrologers previously, I had never encountered significant cells of such orientation in the astrological community before.  They were incredibly excited about extolling Trump’s vision for the future of the USA on the level of a religious revelation.

The Brexiteers were of much the same sentiment except they were highly excited about breaking ties with Europe and standing on their own two feet in another version of Make XXX Great Again with XXX in this case the UK.  I also experienced significant numbers of pro-Brexit British astrologers as they rallied around the flag with excitement in the air.  I remember talking to a taxi driver in Manchester asking him why he supported Brexit and his response was that the European Union was taking away their Britishness.  However, we had just been to Italy, Spain and France and I asked the taxi driver why they were not losing their Italianess, Spanishness and Frenchness?

When the influences of Cancer, Gemini and Aquarius are combined, the result is the world of 2021 with all three zodiacal signs peaking simultaneously for at least the length of the common timeframe: December 2019 – June 2022.  After June 2022, it can be expected that this combined influence will slowly wane.  The first to go will be the disruption and excitement of Aquarius, but it will hang on in a dwindling fashion until November 2024.

The world is currently like a roller coaster ride at a theme park – a wild ride invoking thrill, fear and excitement.  It is this environment that has produced the rejection of the existence of COVID-19, the rejection of mainstream vaccines, spread of anti-vaxxers, the embrace of snake-oil cures – the latest is ivermectin[1] and the acceptance of anyone on YouTube criticizing the mainstream approach to dealing with COVID.  Like populace politicians, they generally have a simple formula – anything they disagree with is fake.

However, the astrology indicates there can be no real alternative to the above scenario at this point of time.  The strongest zodiacal sign in the current first half of the Age of Aquarius is Pisces due to the same four stage structure explained above.  Though the Age of Aquarius commenced in 1433, this was also the beginning of the overlapping Pisces age overflow and overflow (715 BC – 1433AD – 3581 AD).  The third stage of the Pisces age and overflow covers the period 1433 to 2503 and for the whole of this period, Pisces is not only the dominant sign, its at its greatest strength in the 26,000 years cycle of the ages – while Aquarius is the emergent energy. 

Pisces is the sign of illusion, delusion and a bureaucratic mental structure towards life and politics where artificial rules and approaches are made to be followed such as capitalism, socialism, communism, Christianity, Islam, Buddhism and so on.  This structured mental-universe provides societies and individuals a security blanket, and humans attachment to their security blanket is so strong, that they will often go so far as to kill or punish those that disagree with their invented structure, or wage wars to uphold their structured artificial reality. Frightened people will gravitate to their favorite security blanket.

Someone who refutes COVID, discounts science and scientists, and embraces conspiracy babble for breakfast every day cannot help it – it is part of their reality and they firmly believe in their reality – and it can be treated as a social virus massaged by Pisces, Gemini, Cancer and Aquarius.  It’s unfair to expect people who are strongly influenced by the times we live in to reject their outlook on life because they cannot help doing so.  The fantasy of reality under the influence of Pisces can appear as real as a dream – until awoken!  Furthermore, it is not black and white with one side the only upholder of truth (and justice) and the other side the upholder of lies and deception.  Mainstream media cannot be trusted to a certain extent, and will fabricate facts to suit their purposes. The same naturally applies to politicians.

How will people wake up?  There is no evidence that people wake from their dream of reality by being attacked, criticized or persecuted other than perhaps the occasional individual here or there.  A person under attack will merely spurn the attacking person or opposing political view because they know they have integrity, and so when they are attacked, the attacker obviously has none.  It really is a no-win situation as there is no solution in the short term under Aquarius, Cancer and Gemini with the massive Pisces age overflow in the back ground. However there is another approach.

The world is also strongly under the influence of Scorpio.  The Scorpio sub-age and overflow (1791 – 1970 – 2149) has its four stage structure and the world is currently in the most potent third stage covering the period 1970 to 2059.  It is in this period that the world feels the maximum instability that Scorpio brings.  Scorpio is the zodiacal sign that states whatever is on the outside is unstable and vulnerable, and the only strength exists within (except for Scorpio archetypes like sex which has been reborn under the Scorpio sub-age and overflow).

Obviously with Scorpio in the mix, this does not help to bring stability or peace to the world – it promotes the opposite, which further promotes the fearsome nature of our current time on both sides of the political spectrum.[2]  One side considers the other side the harbinger of everything that is fake while the other side has to deal with the dissolution of rationality and facts in the political and social arguments.

It is the inner world that Scorpio promotes, and this is one of those rare times in history where the inner world can play a bigger role.  Of course, when discussing the inner world, it opens Pandora’s box and all manner of things can get lumped in together such as reincarnation, psychic experiences, religions and so on, but they are ruled by Pisces and so don’t apply in this situation.  Under Scorpio, people who can draw upon or have a steadfast inner core to their being and existence are not floundering in the squalls the world throws at them – be it an economic crisis, war, pandemic, conspiracy theories, corruption and so on.  The quest for inner strength or a robust inner reality is favored under Scorpio.

However, if the past is any guide, it does not stop there.  Numerous avatars over the ages have provided guidance and assistance to those seeking real inner peace – and these are commonly associated with Scorpio periods.  (I hope to research and blog about these previous avatars at some time in the future).  However, the world does not have a good track record in responding to this radical notion that real peace and ultimate reality is an inner experience. 

Also, while religions with their hundreds of millions of followers have and continue to make a big impact upon the world, their original guiding light was known by only an incredibly small number of people alive at the time.  This is the track record of avatars to date.  If an avatar was alive in the world today, very few people would even know about it.  This is also part of Scorpio, often represented by the iceberg, with only ten percent visible and 90% hidden beneath the water.  If you don’t pro-actively look, you are unlikely to find!

Each age has its benefits and challenges, and the challenge of our times seems to be how to maintain the inner strength to withstand the storm – or stormier times.  Personally, there is no time previously in the world that I would prefer to be alive other than now despite the nature of today’s world.  Traditionally in India, the world has been perceived as Māyā which suggests a “magic show, an illusion where things appear to be present but are not what they seem”.[3]  This is a relatively accurate description of the world today (yesterday and tomorrow?) and perhaps the internet should be renamed the māyānet?  A steadfast inner integrity would certainly help in coping with our deceptive world. 

A person tends to go towards whatever they focus upon so if someone applies themselves towards finding their inner strength, integrity, reality or peace it increases the likelihood it will be found.  Some searches may lead to a dead end, but life is about living and learning.  We must focus on many things in our lives, but special attention should be placed on the focus to find inner peace or reality – especially when the external world leaves a lot to be desired!

The Capricorn Nano-Age (December 2019 – March 2021)

The following table is derived from a spreadsheet I have developed for producing an ‘ephemeris’ for any age, sub-age, micro-age any even smaller periods.  All that is required to produce such an ephemeris is the start and end dates (in decimal format), and the parent sign (numerically).  In the following case, the parent sign is 10, as it is for the Capricorn nano-age – the 10th sign.

The Capricorn nano-age displaying its 12 pica ages, plus nano-age decans, overflow and quasi nano-age decans,

Because the above table is a nano-age, the twelve-fold division displayed in the Sign and O/F (overflow) columns display 1/12th of a nano-age which is a pica age. This ephemeris is only approximately accurate to the month.  For example, at the time of writing this post (January 2021), it is activating Sub-period 11 as somewhere in December 2020, the nano-age moved from Pisces to Aquarius.  However, the full Pisces pica age and overflow covers the period commencing somewhere in November 2020 and ending somewhere February 2021 as a pica age is about 5 weeks, and therefore a pica age and overflow is 2 x 5 – 10 weeks. 

Note: Whenever a pica age straddles three month, such as the Aquarius SP11 period above, it means it commenced very late in the first month (December 2020) and will conclude very early in the last month (February 2021)

As a speculative example of how these minute pica ages may manifest, the Aquarius pica age and overflow (Dec 20 – Mar 2021) most likely covered the attempted insurrection at the US capital on January 6th 2021 taking into account that the Aquarius micro-age decan (Dec 2014 – Dec 2019) made Trump the president of the USA.  Aquarius is a very disruptive sign, and Trump has been called the Great Disrupter.  Aquarius rules those periods where not only the unexpected occurs –  fringe ideas and extremists can take center stage.  This small Aquarius period will also cover the impeachment of Trump that will most likely occur in February 2021.

Furthermore, not all sub-periods are of the same strength, as this Aquarius pica age and overflow is the sting-in-the-tail of the Aquarius nano-age decan and overflow (Sep 18 – Dec 19 – Mar 21) and therefore behaves as a litmus test for the Aquarius nano-age and overflow which itself is part of the larger and more powerful Aquarius micro-age decan and overflow (Dec 14 – Dec 19 – Nov 24). This Aquarius micro-age decan and overflow is providing additional resonance with the whole Aquarius age (1433 – 3581), so this attempted insurrection in the USA by extremists Trump supporters is providing a benchmark for where the world finds itself within the Age of Aquarius. So while the Aquarius pica age measured in weeks is seemeingly insignificant, it conjures up much deeper Aquarius elements within the Age of Aquarius.

However, I do not place much emphasis on pica ages as they are the shortest and weakest sub-periods of the astrological ages I have discovered and worked with to date.  If I can find just one attributable event such as the attempted US insurrection I feel like I have accomplished something.  What provides firmer correlations to the unfolding events are the 5 month nano-age decans. 

Based on the above ephemeris, the Capricorn nano-age decan commenced in October 2020 followed by the even more powerful Capricorn quasi nano-age a few months later in December 2020.  This can readily be seen by the abject failure by what seems to be the majority of countries in the world to manage COVID-19, and Capricorn ‘punishes’ mismanagement.  The greatest pall over the world from COVID-19 has only recently arrived, and also associated by the new and more virulent strains of the virus.  It’s hard to see a successful conclusion to the worldwide vaccination process while Capricorn remains so strong?  However, the cavalry is on the way.

In this case, the cavalry will be the Sagittarius nano-age and overflow (Mar 21 – Jun 22 – Aug 23).  This appearance of Sagittarius marks the first positive and optimistic influence for some time, and suggests that by the end of this Sagittarius period in June 2022 (leading into the more powerful Sagittarius nano-age overflow), international travel and a somewhat buoyant world will reappear.  Combining this positive Sagittarius influence with the Aquarius micro-age decan overflow (Dec 19 – Nov 24) and the overlapping up and coming Libra micro-age decan (Dec 19 – Nov 24), the astrological recipe for a New Roaring Twenties is firmly in place.  Post COVID-19, people will want to celebrate as they did in the 1920s, where despite the devastation of the First World War and the Spanish flu, people partied hard the first chance they had!

The Roaring 20s occurred under the very last Aquarius period of note with the Aquarius quasi micro-age (1917 – 1932) representing the peak influence of the Aquarius micro-age and overflow (1910 -1925 – 1940).  The current Aquarius period is only one-third as strong and one-third as long, but nevertheless, we should expect a mini Roaring 20s, especially with party-going Libra in the mix.

Will COVID-19 Vaccines Work?

The commencement of mass immunization against COVID-19 has started, but will it work?  The astrology is interesting and while it is not an overly important issue, it does once again demonstrate how sub-periods of the Age of Aquarius operate.  COVID-19 appeared by December 2019, the very month a number of cusps for sub-periods occurred within the Age of Aquarius (see table 1 below). 

Table 1

December 2019 saw the end and thus peak of the Aquarius micro-age decan (Dec 2014 – Dec 2019) and the beginning of the more powerful Aquarius micro-age overflow (Dec 2019 – Nov 2024).  Aquarius brings sudden and unexpected events plus is the key sign for disruption in the zodiac.  Such examples of disruption, other than COVID-19, include the election of the Great Disrupter, Donald Trump in the USA and Brexit in the UK.  The disruption brought by the COVID-19 is the greatest disruption the world has experience since the mid-20th century (the last time an Aquarius sub-period of magnitude affected the world) and therefore the greatest disruption most people alive today have experienced in their lives.

All sub-periods smaller than a micro-age decan (except quasi periods) also had cusps in December 2019, and the most relevant for the purpose of vaccination against COVID-19 is the beginning of the Capricorn nano-age and overflow (Dec 2019 – Mar2021 – Jun 2022) (see table 2). 

Table 2

This Capricorn nano-age and overflow is strategically placed under the shadow of the much larger Cancer micro-age overflow (Dec 2014 – Nov 2029) (see table 3 below).  Cancer is a common sign in pandemics, as Cancer promotes perimeters, which allegorically insinuates it rules the immune system which is the outer defense for any organism. Certainly the sign Cancer factored strongly in all the three major pandemics the world has experienced to date (the three Bubonic plagues), and so its presence in the environment for of COVID-19 supports this connection between Cancer and immunity, or more correctly – lack of immunity.

Table 3

If Cancer is aligned to a weakened immune response by society to COVID-19, it could be construed that Capricorn will work in the other direction due to Capricorn being the opposite sign to Cancer?  However, this is not how it works.  The presence of Cancer places a focus upon immunity, but this focus can be positive or negative, whereas the opposition from Capricorn is always detrimental due to the negative nature of the opposition aspect. 

Also, Capricorn is better known for bringing problems, so will Capricorn bring problems for the COVID-19 vaccines, or benefits?  Furthermore, many problems associated with Capricorn are the result of lack of wisdom, which can manifest as cutting corners.  There is no doubt, that in the rush to get COVID-19 vaccines to market, the normal checks and preliminary testings’ have been short circuited or drastically reduced. 

Capricorn’s association with time also suggests that there is no guarantee over time that negative side-effects will not appear, as in place of years of testing and observation, there have only been months, so there is no indemnity against side effects that may mar the vaccination landscape over the longer term.  Capricorn does not like jumping into any situation quickly, or shoot first and ask questions later scenarios.  When these occur under Capricorn’s watch, a frowning saturnine god usually puts a spanner in the works.

Will Capricorn strengthened society’s backbone enabling society to fight off COVID-19, or will it all come unstuck?  Taking into account that up to 80% or more of the native inhabitants in the Americas died from illnesses brought to the continent by the invading Europeans[1] occurred under the first sub-age in the Age of Aquarius – the Capricorn sub-age decan and overflow (1433 – 1612 – 1791), this does not support a positive outcome for the COVID-19 pandemic due to the much smaller Capricorn nano-age and overflow.  The susceptibility of American natives to European diseases was because the indigenous population had no (Cancer) immune protection against diseases they previously had not encountered.

The term “vaccination” was coined in 1800.  Though there were some positive attempts to vaccinate against smallpox well before this,[2] it seems the modern vaccination revolution occurred under the Cancer sub-age decan and overflow (1791 – 1851 – 1925).  Therefore the appearance of Cancer periods can promote issues associated with immunity, ether negative or positive, or both, but Capricorn destabilizes Cancer and thus immune issues are undermined.

It is more likely that the current emerging Capricorn environment is counter-productive to Cancer vaccines, and with the Capricorn nano-age and overflow peaking in March 2021, we will not have long to find out?  The problems Capricorn brings in the coming period may merely relate to lack of enthusiasm by the general public to get immunized until they are sure everything is OK. 

The emergence of vaccines against Covid-19 has been hailed as gamechanger by experts, but polls have revealed the speed of their development and approval is a matter of concern for some people.”[3]

Nicola Davis, How has a Covid vaccine been developed so quickly?, The Guardian, Tue 8 Dec 2020

A certain percentage of the population must get immunized for the vaccine to work in any community.  Also, problematic issues have already shown up with some vaccines already, and it may take some time to work out these issues.

Many governments are managing COVID-19 at the lowest common denominator, meaning that they are grabbing at straws, and any straw will do.  The USA is the worst responder to COVID-19 in the world, and the UK has the same status in Europe.  Both these nations are at the lead of the international charge to vaccinate their populations due to their inabilities to effectively manage the pandemic.  This gross dysfunction is representative of the current lack of social cohesion in both countries, especially the USA, and countries need cohesion in the face of threats.  This dysfunction is promoting cutting corners.

It must be remembered, that under the influence of the Cancer micro-age overflow (Dec 2014 – Nov 2029), the world is at a low ebb for effective management, shrewdness and wisdom by governments, which is reflected in the rise of (Cancer) populous leaders and policies based on emotional responses and generally lack strategic value.  But populace leaders and policies make many voters happy – especially the (Cancer) common folk who have little understanding of economics or politics – but are cognizant enough to know they are being screwed, and will naturally attach themselves to anything or anyone who will seemingly solve their problems. 

The first significant positive boost for the post-COVID-19 world will not occur until the business half of the coming Sagittarius nano-age and overflow (Mar 2021 – Jun 2022 – Aug 2023) (see table 2 above) and so until around June 2022, or at least the arrival of the Sagittarius quasi nano-age (Oct 2021 – Jan 2023), the cold hand of Capricorn is the main player and will continue stirring the cauldron. While Capricorn is rarely the herald of good news, Sagittarius is brimming with good fortune, and even as early as March 2021, glimmers of optimism should appear.  If this good fortune does not arrive until sometime between October 2021 and June 2022, what is happening beforehand?  It’s hard to see a successful worldwide vaccination process occurring before this time?  The arrival of Sagittarius suggests the return to normal international travel that also insinuates that the COVID-19 crisis has come to an end.

The beginning of any age or sub-period is always the absolute weakest time for the zodiacal sign involved, however, a distinct step is made at beginnings, and these are usually noticeable.  For example both Brexit (June 2016) and the election of Donald Trump (November 2016) provided clear evidence of the rising fortunes of Aquarius, despite these two significant events occurring in the first and weakest quarter of the Aquarius micro-age decan and overflow (Dec 2014 – Dec 2019 – Nov 2024.  The election of Joe Biden in November 2020 also qualifies as indicative of the arrival of the new Libra micro-age decan and overflow (Dec 2019 – Nov 2024 – Nov 2029) espousing his new middle of the road policies and agenda.

Finally, the Aquarius micro-age decan and overflow (Dec 2014 – Dec 2019 – Nov 2024) remains firmly in place, and while disruptive Aquarius remains powerful, we should not expect normality to reappear quickly.  Fortunately, the Aquarius quasi micro-age decan (Jun 2017 – Jun 2022) indicates a reduction in the influence of Aquarius from around mid-2022, and taking into account the soon to appear Sagittarius nano-age and overflow (Mar 2021 – Jun 2022 – Aug 2023), which enters its business half in June 2022, the same month that the Aquarius quasi micro-age decan drops down a level.

Mid 2022 is looking to be the most reliable for some significant return to a less disruptive world – but even then, the world will not be out of the woods.  The final Aquarius sting-in-the tail of the Aquarius micro-age decan and overflow corresponds to the Aquarius nano-age decan (Jan – Nov 2024) of the Libra nano-age situated at the very end of the Aquarius micro-age decan and overflow (Dec 2014 – Dec 2019 – Nov 2024).  It could also represent the highpoint of a new Roaring 20s.

Despite problems and hindrances, any delays in getting the vaccines working properly should not be an extended issue, but until mid-2021, there are no guarantees!

COVID-19 & International Travel?

I have received queries from a number of people about how long the world will be inconvenienced by COVID-19 or when will international travel return to normal?  COVID-19 was recognized in December 2019 and December 2019 was a significant month in the sub-periods of the Age of Aquarius (1433 – 3574) as December 2019 saw the highpoint in of the Aquarius micro-age decan and overflow (Dec 14 – Dec 19 – Nov 24) deep within the Age of Aquarius (which internally is multi-layered like an onion).

Based on evidence from the Spanish flu epidemic (Mar 1918 – March 1920), it appears that COVID-19 has hitched a ride on the approximate 10 years Aquarius micro-age decan and overflow, and the second half (Dec – 19 – Nov 24) could easily propel COVID-19 to the midway point located at June 2022 based on how the Spanish flu progressed in its day.

June 2022 for the proposed end period of COVID-19 is supported by smaller periods within the Aquarius micro-age decan overflow (Dec 19 – Nov 24).  December also saw the beginning of the Capricorn nano-age and overflow (Dec 19 – Mar 21 – Jun 22) (see Table 1) and Capricorn brings bad news, depressions, restrictions and hardships – just to get a drift of the dark side of Capricorn.  Its most potent time for subduing the world will be July 2020 to Oct 2021.

Table 1 – The full Capricorn nano-age and overflow including the arrival of the overlapping Sagittarius nano-age

Following and overlapping with the Capricorn nano-age and overflow is the Sagittarius nano-age and overflow (Mar 21 – Jun 22 – Aug 23) (see Table 1 above) and Sagittarius is the sign that boosts optimism, good economic circumstances and international travel.  It will peak in June 2022 and the period June 2022 to January 2023 (see Table 2 below) will have Sagittarius pumping.  It can be safe to say that international travel will see its best period following COVID-19 in this period, and some noticeable signs of a pickup in the international economy and international travel should be percolating as early as October 2021, with another boost in January 2022 as international travel slowly pulls itself out of the doldrums leading to June 2022.

Table 2 – The Sagittarius nano-age decan and overflow correlates to international travel, especially in the second half commencing June 2022.

The main unknown in the above analysis is that December 2019 also saw within the Capricorn nano-age, the Virgo nano-age decan and overflow (Dec 19 – May 20 – Oct 20) and Virgo is the main sign for public health issues (see Table 3 below ).  The second half of this Virgo period (May 20 – Oct 20) is the strongest half, and this has clearly manifested as the number of daily cases of COVID-19 in the world since May 2020 has gone ballistic compared to the first half.

Table 3 – December 2019 introduced a new suite of sub-periods of the age of Aquarius that correlate to the COVID-19 pandemic

With the end of the Virgo nano-age decan and overflow in October 2020, this may mean the end of the epidemic?  It may, but may not, and this is the great uncertainty associated with COVID-19.  Is the subdued outlook from the Capricorn nano-age and overflow (Dec 19 – Mar 21 – Jun 22) just a continuation of the epidemic until mid-2022, or is it some other element, perhaps triggered by COVID-19 but not directly associated with a public health issue – such as economic turmoil or some other major international problem?

There is a chance that the COVID-19 epidemic gets stopped in its tracks before the end of 2020 – perhaps a vaccine is available?  However, while I am uncertain about what occurs between October 2020 and June 2022, it does not support normal international travel.  For the really keen international traveler, mark October 2021 to get ready to pounce on any travel opportunities.  Otherwise, plan your next international trip for the period of June 2022 to January 2023.  The good fortune associated with the Sagittarius may only last about 15 months before another time of instability arrives – but not necessarily associated with health.

Did August 1969 Change the World?

1969 occurred in the 20 year period assigned to “Age of Aquarius”, which in American urban mythology, spanned the two decades of the 1960s and 70s.  However, within these two decades, much fanfare is made about 1969.  Taking this one step further, in the July 2019 edition of NewStatesmanAmerica is the article: “1969: One month to change the world” where the author, David Hepworth, promotes the conjecture that August 1969 was the key month in 1969 with far reaching effects.

1969 is strongly associated with a key point within the Age of Aquarius.   Ages can be divided into 12 sub-ages, and in 1970, the Scorpio sub-age (1791 – 1970), not only came to its end, it also came to its strongest and most prominent point of power.  1970 saw the end of the Scorpio sub-age, and beginning of the Scorpio sub-age overflow (coinciding with the Libra sub-age), which is even more powerful in the manifestation of Scorpio archetypes, at least to the midway point of the Libra sub-age in 2059.  This is due to the Overflow Effect. [see The Age of Aquarius for Dummies for details on the Overflow Effect]

One major point of substantiation that Scorpio was peaking around 1970 is that since 1970, humans have never before so trash and degraded the world environment treating the whole world, including the oceans and atmosphere, as a garbage dump.  Scorpio is the sign of garbage.  Scorpio is also the sign of atoms and therefor nuclear bombs and energy.  The proliferation of both nuclear weapons and energy are further testaments to Scorpio at its peak.  Despite 1970 being situated at the exact peak of Scorpio, 1969 commonly stands out as a year of drama and change.  Also, with the cusp of the sub-ages in 1970, the expected switch from Scorpio to Libra was May 1970. So from sometime in May 1969 onward, it was in the last 12 months of the potent Scorpio sub-age.

According to Wikipedia, 1969 was:

“associated with the first manned landing on the Moon (Apollo 11), the creation of the internet, and the commencement of the LGBT Rights Movement.”[1] 

All three of the items are strongly associated with Scorpio.  Outer space is associated with Scorpio. LGBT is associated with sex, and thus Scorpio.  The internet’s association to Scorpio is a little more problematic for many astrologers, but this is an excellent example of how zodiacal archetypes constantly update themselves to evolving situations – after all, when zodiacal archetypes were first developed thousands of years ago, there was no internet.  However, the relationship between the internet and Scorpio arises due to the nature of the medium.  In the Taurus age (especially its overflow), Taurus manifested as pyramids, massive stone temples and henges – all very solid examples of fixed-earth Taurus.  Scorpio has the opposite quality to Taurus, it lacks solidity.  This describes the internet, a virtual cultural wraith or ghost that only appears as dots on a screen.  The internet is a reality – but a virtual reality.  This is its connection to Scorpio.

Not only was 1969 in the Scorpio sub-age (1791 – 1970), but in deeper wheels-within-wheels, the final micro-age at the end of the Scorpio sub-age was the Scorpio micro-age (1955 – 1970).  Table 1 displays the start dates for the 12 micro-ages within the Scorpio sub-age (1791 – 1970):

1791 Libra
1806 Virgo
1821 Leo
1836 Cancer
1851 Gemini
1866 Taurus
1881 Aries
1895 Pisces
1910 Aquarius
1925 Capricorn
1940 Sagittarius
1955 Scorpio

Table 1 – micro-ages of the Scorpio sub-age (1791 – 1970)

Drilling down further, Table 2 displays that February 1969 to May 1970 was the Scorpio nano-age, and so this Scorpio nano-age had punch way above a normal nano-age as it sits in the Scorpio shadows of the Scorpio micro-age and Scorpio sub-age (not to mention the Scorpio sub-age decan (1910 -1970).  A Scorpio event of this strength can only occur once every age (around every 2,000 years).  The last time was around 8BC.

Table 2 – nano-ages of the Scorpio micro-age

Scoprio was not the only notable zodiacal sign in 1969 as Sagittarius was experiencing a ‘homeopathic’ peak at the same time.  The Scorpio nano-age (February 1969 to May 1970) is also the same timeframe as the Sagittarius nano-age overflow, and this Sagittarius nano-age overflow was resonating with the Sagittarius micro-age overflow (1955 – 1970) which again was resonating with the massive Sagittarius sub-age overflow (1791 – 1970) that formed following the Sagittarius sub-age (1612 – 1791).  Therefore, Sagittarius was also at a highpoint, but not of the same magnitude as Scorpio.  The last time that Sagittarius was at the same magnitude as Scorpio was in 1969-70 was in the period 1790-91.  However, Sagittarius does make a modest appearance in 1969 and 1970 and it also possibly expands and broadcasts widely whatever is happening associated to the Scorpio pinnacle.

The following are some notable events (excluding August 1969) in the Scorpio nano-age (February 1969 to May 1970), which is the same time period as the Sagittarius nano-age age overflow, and can be also labelled the Sagittarius-Scorpio nano-age:

  • February 1969 – The Boeing 747 “jumbo jet” is flown for the first time (Sagittarius)
  • March 1969
    • the first Concorde test flight is conducted (Sagittarius)
    • Arrest warrants are issued by a Florida court for Jim Morrison on charges of indecent exposure during a Doors concert (Scorpio)
    • The novel The Godfather by Mario Puzo is first distributed to booksellers by the publisher (Scorpio underworld)
    • Operation Breakfast, the covert bombing of Cambodia by U.S. planes, begins (secretive Scorpio)
    • John Lennon and Yoko Ono are married, and proceed to their honeymoon “Bed-In” for peace in Amsterdam. (Scorpio)
  • April 1969
    • The Harvard University Administration Building is seized by close to 300 students, mostly members of the Students for a Democratic Society. (Sagittarius & Scorpio)
    • North Korea shoots down an aircraft over the Sea of Japan, killing all 31 on board (Scorpio)
  • May 1969
    • An American teenager dies in St. Louis, Missouri, of a baffling medical condition. In 1984 it will be identified as the earliest confirmed case of HIV/AIDS in North America. (Scorpio)
    • Midnight Cowboy, an X-rated, Oscar-winning John Schlesinger film, is released. (Scorpio)
  • June 1969 – The Stonewall riots in New York City mark the start of the modern gay rights movement in the U.S (Scorpio)
  • July 1969
    • Brian Jones, musician and founder of The Rolling Stones, drowns in his swimming pool at his home. (Scorpio death)
    • Edward M. Kennedy drives off a bridge on his way home from a party on Chappaquiddick Island, Massachusetts. Mary Jo Kopechne dies in the submerged car. (Scorpio death)
    • Apollo 11’s lunar module Eagle lands on the Moon’s surface. An estimated 500 million people worldwide, the largest television audience for a live broadcast at this time. (Scorpio space & eagles)
  • September 2019 – Lieutenant William Calley is charged with six counts of premeditated murder for the 1968 My Lai Massacre deaths of 109 Vietnamese civilians in My Lai, Vietnam. (Scorpio death)
  • October 1969
    • Hundreds of thousands of people take part in Moratorium to End the War in Vietnam demonstrations across the USA (Scorpio revolution)
    • Fourteen black athletes are kicked off the University of Wyoming football team for wearing black armbands into their coach’s office. (Scorpio revolution)
    • The first message is sent over ARPANET, the forerunner of the internet. (Scorpio internet)
  • November 1969
    • Cold War: A Soviet submarine collides with the American submarine in the Barents Sea. (Scorpio underwater)
    • Vietnam War: In Washington, D.C., 250,000–500,000 protesters stage a peaceful demonstration against the war, including a symbolic “March Against Death”. (Scorpio revolution & death)
    • Cold War: Negotiators from the Soviet Union and the USA meet to begin the SALT I negotiations aimed at limiting the number of strategic weapons on both sides . (Scorpio nuclear)
  • December 1969 – The Boeing 747 jumbo jet makes its first passenger flight from Seattle to New York City. (Sagittarius flight)
  • February 1970 – Black Sabbath’s eponymous debut album is released; often regarded as the first true heavy metal album. (Scorpio rock and roll)
  • March 1970 – A bomb being constructed by members of the Weathermen and meant to be planted at a military dance in New Jersey, explodes, killing three members of the organization. . (Scorpio death and underground organizations)
  • April 1970
    • An oxygen tank in the Apollo 13 spacecraft explodes, forcing the crew to abort the mission and return in four days. (Scorpio space and life threatening situations)
    • China’s first satellite is launched into orbit. (Scorpio space)
  • May 1970 – President Richard Nixon orders U.S. forces to cross into neutral Cambodia, threatening to widen the Vietnam War, sparking protests across the United States and leading to the Kent State shootings. (Scorpio death & revolution)

August 1969

According to David Hepworth, in this one month, the world supposedly dramatically changed with a succession of cultural shocks – highlighted by the moon landing, the murder of Sharon Tate and others by Manson and his followers, the Woodstock festival and the Beatles’ walk across the Abbey Road zebra crossing. ( See the full details by David Hepworth).  Many additional noteworthy events, at least in retrospect, also occurred in this month – including the first letters received from the Zodiac Killer in San Francisco – the Zodiac Killer has never been identified.  In Vedic astrology, the (Scorpio) 8th house is the house of astrology.

  • British Army troops began what would become an almost 38-year presence in Northern Ireland as more than 300 soldiers arrived at Derry to end three days of rioting called the “Battle of the Bogside”. “Operation Banner” would extend until 2007 with 2007 located in the next high-point for Scorpio after 1970 – the Scorpio micro-age decan (April 2005 – January 2010). Ireland is closely associated with Scorpio’s opposite sign – Taurus, and the Battle of Bogside was in reality an attempted revolution by the Catholic minority against the majority pro-British Protestants .
  • The first publicized revolt of American soldiers in the Vietnam War took place when “A” Company of the 196th Brigade of the Americal Division refused to obey the orders of the lieutenant who was commanding them – the lieutenant was reassigned the next day. ( Classic example of Scorpio revolution).
  • The withdrawal of 25,000 American troops from the Vietnam War, ordered by U.S. President Nixon in the first cutback of the U.S. commitment to Southeast Asia, was completed – marking the beginning of the end of the whole travesty of European invaders of Viet Nam.
  • The “poverty line” now in use by the United States government was first announced. Although the amount would be adjusted for inflation to reflect changes in the Consumer Price Index, the definition of the poverty level would remain unchanged for the next fifty years. (Scorpio rules poverty!)
  • The first hijacking, outside of the Western Hemisphere, took place when a TWA flight from Rome to Tel Aviv was commandeered by terrorist Leila Khaled and an accomplice who was a member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. They boarded the flight at Rome’s Fiumicino airport with carry-on luggage that included pistols and hand grenades, forced her way into the airplane’s cabin, and dropped the pin of one of the grenades at the pilot’s feet, and ordered him to fly the Boeing 707 to Damascus. After the plane landed, the 95 passengers and the 12 crew were allowed to evacuate. Khaled and Issawi then threw the grenades into the cockpit and destroyed the front section of the jet, which would later be repaired and returned to use by TWA.  (Terrorists are classic examples of a Scorpio archetype.)
  • The very first Interface Message Processor (IMP), a set of electronic switches designed to communicate from one computer to others on a network, was delivered to as the first part of the ARPANET computer network, predecessor to the Internet. This alone would highlight August 1969 as the most influential month of our times due to the massive and ongoing change in the world subsequent to this tiny development.  (Scorpio takes rulership over the internet as a medium, but emails and communication aspects of the internet remain with Gemini.)

The final issue, does August 1969 have any special astrological configuration making it stand out from the other months in the same Scorpio nano-age?  I could find nothing, and it is probably just a subjective analysis by David Hepworth.  However, it has been stated that the Woodstock festival of music ‘defined a generation’.  From the astrological perspective, Woodstock did not define a generation, it defined the next significant epoch of socio-political revolution in western society that will last centuries.  It will be even more evident in the second half of the 21st century.

How Libra has sent a Peace Message to the World

The Libra-Gemini Nano Age Decan (February – July 2019)

To put the Libra-Gemini nano age decan into context, it is necessary to drill down to it starting from the Age of Aquarius.  For anyone reading my work on macro-astrology, you will be aware that the issue of ages and their sub-periods are not similar to horoscopic or mundane astrology because of their retrograde motion.  If you have not experienced macro-astrology before, or do not understand how ages and their sub-periods work, you would be well advised to read Age of Aquarius for Dummies.

The Age of Aquarius is the exact same time-frame as the Pisces age overflow, and to facilitate the necessity of taking both signs into account, this time-frame can also be called the Pisces-Aquarius age (1433 AD – 3574 AD).  This also applies to all the sub-periods of the ages.  The dual nomenclature also differentiates the between the ‘overflow’ from the previous period (the entrenched influence) represented by the first sign of the pair, and the emergent sign, the second sign of the pair.

In simplistic terms, we are in the Age of Aquarius but Aquarius is the emergent influence, and therefore needs more time to fully develop before it reaches its full potential, but the Pisces influence is entrenched, as it has reach its peak power at the end of the Pisces age in 1433 AD, and is now overflowing onto the Age of Aquarius like a tsunami, and it is not so much the case that everyone better get out of its way, but rather it is the force to be reckoned with!

Using this dual nomenclature technique, the world is currently being influenced by the following periods in descending order of size and therefore long-term influence:

Pisces-Aquarius age (1433 – 3574)

Pisces-Libra age-decan (1433 – 2148)

Scorpio-Libra sub-age (1970 – 2148)

Scorpio-Gemini sub-age decan (1970 – 2129)

Cancer-Gemini micro-age (December 2014 – November 2029)

Cancer-Aquarius micro-age decan (December 2014 – December 2019)

Pisces-Aquarius nano-age (September 2018 – December 2019)

Libra-Gemini nano-age decan (February – July 2019)

Each of the above periods is making its influence directly felt in the world, but it is the entrenched Libra part of the last item on the list, the Libra-Gemini nano-age decan (February – July 2019), that is the relevant period for this article as it can precipitate much bigger and stronger periods into direct action due to resonance.

The first noticeable aspect of this very small and approximate 5 month Libra-Gemini period is that it resonates with the massive and highly influential Pisces-Libra age-decan (1433 – 2148) and Scorpio-Libra sub-age (1970 – 2148), but in both cases, Libra is the emergent sign, and therefore in its growth phase.  This means that our tiny Libra-Gemini nano-age decan (February – July 2019) is providing strong clues about where the world is heading as the world is heading towards a time highly influenced by Libra.  The world is not heading towards a Libra monopoly, but certainly in the immediate centuries ahead of us, Libra will be highly influential, and increasing in strength until 2148, at which time, it will go into its more powerful overflow mode for many centuries.

The presence of this very small but not ineffectual Libra-Gemini nano-age decan has already manifested – and this manifested in New Zealand when an Australian, supposedly driven by hate, burst into two mosques in Christchurch on 15th March 2019 killing 50 people, and injuring a further 50 people.  To simplify this as a hate crime is to misunderstand such people.  They are really driven or overcome by the inner reptile side of their brain that responds to basic territorial stress, and this reptile part of the brain exists in all of us – but some people cannot seem to keep it under control, like a vampire with a blood lust.  This is where the hard right and neo-fascist politicians garner their support, but it cannot be simply digressed down to black and white, as in reality, everything is a shade of grey. Such people truly think they are doing the right thing, and sympathetic supporters also feel that they are on the side of what is right and proper.

Everyone alive displays a mixture of their rational and reptile brain, and the situation of dealing with those more fixated upon their reptilian instincts requires far more sensitivity and consciousness by the more rational side of humanity than we currently witness in the media and online commentaries.  More on this topic can be found at Gemini’s Role in our Modern World (or Battle of the Brains)

This association of the Christchurch mosque attacks to ‘peaceful’ Libra may seem confusing but Libra rules opposition, and with this attack, we are seeing the manifestation of a small fringe group in many western societies that feel incumbent to strongly oppose the policies of the majority of people.  The reptile side of the brain does not respond to fairness or democracy, it is more attuned to attack when it feels threatened.  But the striking association to this attack was not the attack, but the response, led by New Zealand’s youthful Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.

Jacinda Adhern, prime minster of New Zealand 2018

The answer lies in our humanity,” Ardern said. “We each hold the power – in our words, in our actions, in our daily acts of kindness. Let that be the legacy of the 15th of March.[1]

This is the positive side of Libra in action, but the archetypal connection did not stop there.  Quickly following this tragedy, Jacinda Ardern vowed to rein in New Zealand gun laws to prevent military-styled semi-automatic weapons being available to the general public, and guns are unequivocally ruled by Aries.  With Aries in opposition to Libra, guns have now found that they are in the gunsights of the anti-gun lobby, widely supported in most western countries, and which can only grow in influence over the following centuries as Libra increases in strength and influence.

In another article If Jacinda Ardern was in No 10, imagine how different Brexit would be, leads us to another manifestation of another Libra archetype: indecision.  The British parliament cannot decide how to invoke Brexit.  This monumental Brexit disaster is supposedly to be instituted under the sign Libra, for an Aries nation which is often represented as a British bulldog ruled by Aries.

…. the phrase ‘British Bulldog spirit’, meaning unrelenting courage, had evolved during the 19th century, plucky Bulldogs soon became a regular fixture in World War I propaganda posters. But perhaps the most symbolism came when Winston Churchill became Prime Minister.[2]

Aries is strongly represented in the astrological signature for the UK (see The UK Astrological Signature ), and so it is rather unfortunate that the UK, having shot itself in the foot with the Brexit referendum, cannot seem to have the pluck to amputate the foot to ‘cure’ itself by actually leaving the UK.  Territoriality was the major force behind Brexit, and this again indicates the human reptile brain remain highly influential in world affairs, and especially in the UK in 2016.

So while Brexit is basically underscored by racism or at least territorialism, and Prime Minister May has sided with the arch conservatives in her own party over the general benefits to the wider UK, Ardhern in New Zealand did the opposite, bringing the nation together.

And lastly there is the personality of the leader. Ardern, even in the darkest of days, has managed to introduce a sense of optimism about the future despite the horror of the attacks. May seems to be able to render everything depressing. For her, there are no sunny uplands but just another spoonful of castor oil. We are not doing Brexit because it improves the country but just because we must.[3]

What both Jacinda Ardhern and Brexit have done is paint a mini picture of the future.  It does seem that the fruition of the Libra age-decan post 2148 will probably ultimately be viewed as a mini-golden age, but governments and society will be highly indecisive, and possibly miss opportunities.  There is no zodiacal sign that has only positive archetypes associated with it, and even though Libra is ruled by Venus, traditionally considered a major benefic, it will still have a downside, and one downside is sugar, ruled by Libra, and bringing a major obesity and diabetes epidemic to the world.  It is very possible that the indecisiveness of the governing bodies in the world to deal with the looming threat of climate change is also linked to Libra?

Another possible example of indecisiveness in this Libra period is the breakdown of the talks between North Korea and the USA in Hanoi in late February 2019, but no (Aries) rockets were subsequently fired by North Korea, and even President Trump appeared undeterred and basically positive of its ultimate outcome.  Also, the fall of the final territory of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), located in Al-Baghuz Fawqani, Syria, was liberated in late March 2019 theoretically bring more peaceful circumstances to the region.

I almost missed this connection that also occurred at the high-point of this Libra period –  the grounding of Boeings 737 MAX aircrafts in March 2019 after two crashes, Indonesia in October 2018 and Ethiopia March 2019.  This raises an interesting issue re astrological archetypes.  Traditionally, aircrafts are associated with Sagittarius and Aquarius, and my research of macro-astrology confirms this connection in a general sense, but macro-astrology also has a very different perspective on aircrafts.

From the perspective of macro-astrology, a rock for throwing, spear, arrow, gun, rocket, car and airplane are all projectiles – and projectiles are ruled by Aries.  In a Libra period, Aries is in detriment, and furthermore, this Libra nano-age decan exists within an Aquarius nano-age that places a focus upon aircrafts.  This exists in the Gemini micro-age (opposed to Sagittarius strongly associated with planes) and within the even larger Gemini sub-age decan. Most of the current astrological focus upon aircraft is either neutral or negative.

In this situation, we can see that there is stress and focus, but mainly stress, placed upon aircrafts.  This momentum of stress is going to significantly increase in the years, decades and centuries ahead, so much so, that I predict that another form of air travel, probably based on lighter-than-air dirigibles or some kind of hybrid, because of the heavy environmental cost of current air travel.  Most likely domestic air flights will virtually disappear altogether and be replaced by fast trains.  This massive change is incredibly strong from 2029 onward aligned with the Gemini sub-age decan overflow (2029 – 2088), an Air sign.

All these events at the high-point of the current small Libra influence are, nevertheless, major events in the world, and nearly everyone would be aware of them.  Little nano-age decans, that have an influence for less than a year, within an age that lasts over 2,000 years, still can make themselves heard above all the noise!

Even the balance between the New Zealand response to its mosque attacks and the indecisive of the UK parliament towards Brexit is indicative of the inherent balance that applies to Libra.  However, it is early days yet, so we may find a few more notable examples of Libra in play up to July 2019, but it does not end there!  The current Gemini micro-age (December 2014 – November 2029) has three micro-age decans, and one of them is the Libra micro-age decan and overflow (December 2019 – November 2024 – November 2029) with the second half (November 2024 – November 2029) where Libra will peak.  2019 therefore is a preview of the second half of next decade.

Aries is also strongly represented in the psyche of the USA, but despite this, it is highly probable that the first steps towards limiting military-styled weapons for civilians will make an appearance in the USA later next decade .  However, such is the antagonism within the USA towards Libra archetypes, the American Civil War coincided with the last close replica of the soon-to-arrive Libra micro-age decan overflow. In both cases, a Cancer micro-age overflow exists, and Capricorn is also strongly represented in the astrological signature for the USA. Unfortunately, we must expect that some Americans will fire their military-styles guns rather than hand them in!

There is a good astrological case that the USA was always intended to become the major representative of Libra in the world when viewed 1,000 years from now – but that American-Libra reality must wait until at least the middle of next century and beyond.  Perhaps Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is another foretaste for the future of the USA?  The astrology does support this conjecture. [See Females, Women and Feminists in the Age of Aquarius ]

The world is ever so slowly inching towards a Libra world, and despite negative association to the shady side of Libra, it is basically a pleasant sign.  All those dystopian, post-apocalyptical and technological-corporate-fascist science fiction movies have got it wrong – Libra does not like doom and gloom or hardship.  We may get a foretaste of a less gloomy world in only a few years’ time in the Libra micro-age decan overflow (November 2024 – November 2029)?  The world should see early signs of this shift to Libra starting December 2019!

A New Pisces Goddess – More Than a Diva in the Making?

When I talk about a goddess, I am not discussing a religious goddess of any type, but an astrological god, and an astrological god is really like the Greek and Roman gods and goddesses of mythology.  These include, Diana, Artemis, Hercules, Mars, Aphrodite and so on who actually represent many of the archetypes associated with specific planets and zodiacal signs – like an ancient text on astrological archetypes.

Around 2006 I began musing upon the fact that the world was passing through a Cancer micro-age (2000 – 2014) and that this had three micro-age decans: Pisces (Feb 2000 – Jan 2005); Scorpio (Jan 2005 –Jan 2010) and Cancer (Jan 2010 – Dec 2014).  Due to the overflow effect, each of these almost 5 year micro-age decans influence almost 10 years, as for example, the Pisces micro-age decan (2000 – 2005) overflows onto the years 2005 to 2010.  The overflow is even more powerful than the period proper, and the demarcation point between the two parts I call the peak time.  I was aware in 2006 that the world had just entered the Pisces micro-age decan overflow and that Pisces was ‘peaking’.  I had never before been able to examine a micro-age decan in ‘real’ time. [1]

I also knew what this meant due to the archetypes associated with Pisces.  Pisces always promotes music – just look at the music collection of anyone you know with Pisces rising or a Pisces Sun!  What was so intriguing with this Pisces micro-age decan and overflow is that I had already experienced one – the Pisces micro-age decan and overflow (1960 – 1965 – 1970) within the Scorpio micro-age (1955 – 1970) when I was a teenager.  There was no doubt that the Pisces period of my teenage years will remain famous even in 1,000 years’ time due to the quality of music produced –  in the same way that Shakespeare is still acclaimed as the world’s greatest poet many centuries after his death.

In 2006, I was psyching myself up for a new breed of musicians but I was also aware that this new Pisces period at the beginning of the 21st century was not going to be as strong as the 1960’s version for a number of reasons.  Firstly, the 1960’s Pisces period was at the tail end of a powerful Pisces sub-age decan overflow (1910 – 1970).  The appearance of Pisces at this strength will not be replicated for around 700 years from now, and even in 700 years’ time, Pisces will still not be as strong as it was in the 20th century.

Secondly, the 1960s Pisces period was part of the Scorpio micro-age (1955 – 1970) at the high point of the Scorpio sub-age (1791 – 1970), and Scorpio provided the hard rock, pulsating beat and raw edge associated with much of the music of the 1960s.  Scorpio is also deep and meaningful.  The new Pisces micro-age decan and overflow (2000 – 2005 – 2010) had virtually no Scorpio input in the first half, and only a moderate Scorpio input in the second half (2005 -10) from the first half of the Scorpio micro-age decan and overflow (2005-10-14).  So while I expected some boost in the world of music, I also did not expect a repeat of the 1960s.

I remember I was looking forward towards the new musical inspiration but nothing happened.  For many years I was puzzled.  However, in early 2018 the puzzle was revealed to me.  There had been a musical revival, especially in the period 2005 to 2010, but I was in the wrong age-group – I was no longer a teenager or even in my 20s!  This realization slowly came to me after I saw for the first time Taylor Swift on an Australian TV show in early 2018 performing We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.   I searched her out on YouTube and listened to some of her songs.

Taylor Swift Speak Now Tour 2011

Eventually I realized that Taylor Swift was representative of the musical revival I had expected in the period 2005 to 2010.  Her first album was released in 2006 at age 16.

Taylor Swift was released on October 24, 2006. Jon Caramanica of The New York Times described it as “a small masterpiece of pop-minded country, both wide-eyed and cynical, held together by Ms. Swift’s firm, pleading voice”. Taylor Swift peaked at number five on the Billboard 200 albums chart in the United States and spent 157 weeks on the ranking, marking the longest stay on the chart by any release in the country in the 2000s decade. As of August 2016 the album has sold over 7.75 million copies worldwide.” In the late 2000s, Taylor Swift became the first country artist to enjoy widespread mainstream popularity since the 1980s.[2]

There is no need to go into detail of all the awards, money and fame that Taylor Swift has attained, and most of the criticism I have heard about her musical style I write off as ageism and anti-Pisces bias.  I am sure if I was a teen in 2006,  I would have been affected by her music.  Taylor Swift attracts massive stadiums full of fans who know most of her songs word-for-word, and the audience is certainly not restricted to teenage girls.  My observation of Taylor Swift is that she is a highly dedicated, accomplished and consummate professional musician of the highest order.  Some people complain that she does not have a stunning voice like Joni Mitchell – neither did Bob Dylan.  (Joni Mitchell is an excellent example of a musician coming of age in the previous Pisces micro-age and overflow in the 1960s).

However, many people find Taylor vacuous, infantile and one person even stated that she was a “fame whore” (no offense intended).  What these people fail to realize is that they are all accurately describing various sides of Pisces. Pisces likes fame and glamour – it is not a deep and meaningful sign – its all glitz, smoke and mirrors.  We know all this because Pisces is opposite Virgo – the Virgin, representing purity and integrity.  Pisces does not represent purity, but the glamour or suggestion of purity, because Pisces prefers to deceive – which is why Pisces is also the sign of actors and espionage agents that use deception in their professions.  Taylor Swift is one of the new breed of Pisces goddesses, and even her photograph above accurately portrays this almost perfect image of the female form of Pisces.  Taylor may be the penultimate Pisces goddess from the 2000s, but she is not alone!

The big question is – how many other divas, stunning male musicians or bands did this Pisces period produce?  One thing is for certain – they have been anointed by Pisces to keep the passion for music burning brightly in the world, as this strength of Pisces will not be surpassed until the next Pisces micro-age and overflow (2059 – 73 – 88) – particularly the period 2073 to 2088.

Cher performing during Living Proof: The Farewell Tour in 2004 (France)

It is difficult to say which musicians or bands should be included, but the main requirement is that they experienced great success, especially in the years 2005 to 2010.  The only one that I personally picked up upon at the time was Cher’s Farewell Tour – but I have been aware of Cher since my teenage years.

I cannot remember deep and meaningful songs from a young Cher, also known appropriately as the Goddess of Pop.  Cher became famous in Sonny and Cher with the 1965’s “I Got You Babe” and her first successful single in the following year – “Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)”.   These are the types of songs Taylor Swift has been writing for over the last decade and more.  These early songs from Cher occurred at the exact same time within the 1960’s Pisces period compared to Taylor Swift in the recent Pisces period.

There is no doubt that the Pisces micro-age decan and overflow gave the world a real boost to music and Beyoncé is another example of a Pisces goddess associated with this recent Pisces period.  Definitely the following musicians can be included (with their Billboard rating included :

Rihanna (10) born 20 February 1988

Drake (21) born October 24, 1986

Bruno Mars (34) born October 8, 1985

Lady Gaga (67) (born March 28, 1986

I also consider Adele (born 5 May 1988) and Amy Winehouse (b.1983 – d.2011) as aptly associated with this Pisces musical period.  The following musicians and bands may also be included as the latest pro-active representatives of Pisces in the world of music, (and some suitable contenders may not be mentioned):

  • Eminem
  • The Eastside Boyz.
  • Backstreet Boys
  • The Pussycat Dolls (2003–10), the most successful girl group of the decade.
  • Artists such as Janet Jackson, Anastacia, Kylie Minogue, Mariah Carey, and Nelly Furtado experienced revived success.
  • Justin Timberlake shot to stardom with his debut solo album, Justified (2002).
  • In 2005, Cher ended her 3-year-long “Farewell Tour” which became the highest grossing female and solo tour at that time.
  • Madonna enjoyed success throughout the decade. Her albums Music (2000) and Confessions on a Dance Floor (2005) are among the best-selling of the decade.

    Beyoncé performing during The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour in 2013.

  • While predominantly focusing on R&B music during this time, Beyoncé also ventured into a pop sound with her third studio album I Am… Sasha Fierce in 2008, producing a number of top-ten singles. The album and it’s accompanying songs went on to win five Grammy Awards, helping Beyoncé set a record for the most Grammy Awards won by a female artist in one night.  Beyoncé was ranked the 4th Artist of the 2000s decade by Billboard, and was listed the most successful female artist of the 2000s, as well as the top radio artist of the 2000s.
  • Lady Gaga took the latter part of the decade by storm and revived the electronic influence of pop music that had not been prominent since 2000.
  • A number of new vocalists have achieved popularity with a mix of traditional jazz and pop/rock forms, such as Diana Krall, Norah Jones, Cassandra Wilson, Kurt Elling, and Jamie Cullum. Norah Jones and Diana Krall, due to their massive international success during the 2000s are considered the first and second most successful female jazz singers of the decade, respectively. Diana Krall has topped the Music Billboards multiple times in the year 2000.[3]

I am sure that the above list is incomplete.  My perspective is that this was a special decade for music – the best since the 1960s.

Taylor in the early 1970s

The real test for Taylor Swift and her ilk, will they stand the test of time?  In the case of Taylor Swift, appropriately named after James Taylor, I am sure that at a minimum she will evolve into a diva in the mold of Cher as she has all the right astrological credentials, as does Beyoncé and probably many other musical influences from the 2000’s.

Does generational astrology have a part to play with Taylor Swift?  She was born in a Virgo-Leo generation (April 1985 – September 1992).  This places her squarely in The Millennials or Generation Y, sometimes known as the Echo Boomers or New Boomers as they were the first generation to have strong similarity to the Baby Boomers.  Both sets of Boomers are associated with a Fire sign – the Baby Boomers with Sagittarius and the Echo Boomers with Leo.  In the United States, birth rates peaked in August 1990 when Leo was near its peak strength in this generation, mimicking the early population bulge due to the Baby Boomers.   Leo, like its ruler the Sun, likes to shine. Taylor Swift has certainly employed the Leo in her generational signature to the max. Her squeaky-clean image (to date), outside of relationships, is testament to the Virgo influence.  There is certainly more to come from Taylor as she is till in kindergarten of the Diva School.

If you are unaware of Taylor Swift’s brilliance and competence from a very early age, I would suggest you watch on YouTube:

CNN Spotlight: Taylor Swift (2014)

A horoscopic analysis of Taylor Swift is also now available.

Note: This post was appropriately produced at the peak of a smaller Pisces nano-age and overflow (June 2017 – September 2018 – December 2019).  A 15 month Pisces nano-age usually appears once approximately every 13 to 14 years


[1] I first successfully rectified the Age of Aquarius in 1987, but in 1987, I only correctly detected the century the Age of Aquarius arrived.  It was not until 2005 that I was able to get the rectification down to a ten year error margin. By the following year, I had correctly calculated the arrival year for the Age of Aquarius 1433, and since 2006, I have only made a minor modification that has not affected the arrival year of the Age of Aquarius.  This has been confirmed by applying pica ages that are technically only 5 weeks in length, and though pica ages are almost useless, they do have connotations with the financial markets.

Waiting for the Aries Sting-in-the-Tail

The recent strike in April 2018 against Syria by the USA, UK and France, due to the alleged use of chemical weapons by the Assad Syrian government against ‘rebel’ areas, is a bit part being played out by a small Aries period deep down within the Age of Aquarius – a stronger Aries period is yet to come.

The world is in the Libra sub-age (1970-2148), which contains 12 micro-ages, and the current micro-age is the Gemini micro-age (Dec 2014 – Nov 2029).  This also contains 12 nano-ages of almost 15 months each.  The world is currently in an Aries nano-age and overflow (Mar 2016 – Jun 2017 – Sep 2018) with the second half (June 2017 – Sep 2018) more powerful than the first half.

The major influence of this Aries nano-age and overflow is war, conflict or mishaps.  It is the same level of Aries that produced the previous two Iraq Wars.  The Allied invasion of Iraq in March 2003 was the most significant military event associated with the previous Aries quasi nano-age (February 2003 – May 2004). That was also that period when bombings around the world were almost nightly news on the TV – including many suicide bombings.

Whereas it is surprising (and encouraging) that no medium level warfare has occurred in this Aries period to date, but there has certainly been conflicts, excessive posturing, war of words and other war-like developments to a much greater extent than normal.

One example was the recent war of words between president Trump and North Korea a few months back when nuclear ballistic missiles were supposedly being aimed at the USA.  China and the USA have been at the brink of a trade war over tariffs and intellectual property.  Russia and the UK, supported by its allies, have been very aggressive towards each other following the attempted murder of two Russians living in the UK, with the culprit most likely Russia. Even Spain got into the action by forcibly overthrowing the regional government in Barcelona for having the temerity of holding a referendum to leave Spain.

Events associated with Aries include anything involving military forces or their weapons, especially missiles, bombs and rockets, major calamities such as hurricanes and earthquakes that create damage, the explosion of anything, any attack including cyberattacks, mass shootings, fires, collisions and crashes.  Sport, including major games, is also Aries.

Some more examples of a pumped up Aries include:

April 2016

  • In response to a suspected chemical weapons attack on a rebel-held town, the U.S. military launches 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at an air base in Syria. Russia describes the strikes as an “aggression“, adding they significantly damage U.S.–Russia ties.
  • The U.S. drops the world’s largest non-nuclear weapon, at an ISIL base in Afghanistan.

May 2016

  • Computers around the world are hit by a large-scale ransomware cyberattack, which goes on to affect at least 150 countries.
  • A terrorist bombing attack at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England kills 22 people and injures over 500.

June 2017

  • An Islamic terror attack on London Bridge, United Kingdom kills 8 and injures 48
  • Two terrorist attacks are simultaneously carried out by five terrorists belonging to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) against the Iranian Parliament building and the Mausoleum of Ruhollah Khomeini, both in Tehran, Iran, leaving 17 civilians dead and 43 wounded. It becomes the first ISIL attack in Iran.
  • A fire at Grenfell Tower in London kills 71 people.
  • Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) fire six surface-to-surface mid-range ballistic missiles from domestic bases targeting ISIL forces in response to the terrorist attacks in Tehran earlier that month.
  • The Great Mosque of al-Nuri in Mosul, Iraq, is destroyed by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.
  • A series of cyberattacks using the Petya malware begins, affecting organizations in Ukraine.

July 2017

  • Russia and China urge North Korea to halt its missile and nuclear programs after it successfully tested its first intercontinental ballistic missile

August 2017

  • The Unite the Right rally is held in Charlottesville, Virginia, by a variety of white nationalist and other far-right groups; a counter-protestor, is killed after being hit by a car.
  • The first observation of a collision of two neutron stars is hailed as a breakthrough in multi-messenger astronomy
  • A military operation targeting Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar “seems a textbook example of ethnic cleansing”, according to the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights.
  • Hurricane Harvey strikes the United States as a Category 4 hurricane, causing catastrophic damage to Houston. At least 108 deaths are recorded, and total damage reaches $US125 billion, making Harvey the costliest natural disaster in United States history.

September 2016

  • North Korea conducts its sixth and most powerful nuclear test.
  • The Caribbean and United States are struck by Hurricane Irma, a Category 5 hurricane that is the strongest hurricane ever recorded in the Atlantic basin outside the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico. The storm causes at least 146 deaths and $US64 billion in damage.
  • Just two weeks after Hurricane Irma struck the Caribbean, Hurricane Maria strikes similar areas, making landfall on Dominica as a Category 5 hurricane, and Puerto Rico as a Category 4 hurricane. Maria caused at least 112 deaths and damages estimated in excess of $US91 billion
  • Iraqi Kurdistan votes in a referendum to become an independent state, in defiance of Iraq; by October 15, the crisis escalates into a short-lived armed conflict over disputed territories.

October 2017

  • Fifty-eight people are killed and 851 injured when Stephen Paddock opens fire on a crowd in Las Vegas, surpassing the 2016 Orlando nightclub shooting as the deadliest mass shooting perpetrated by a lone gunman in U.S. history.
  • A massive blast caused by a truck bombing in Mogadishu, Somalia kills at least 512 people and injures 316 others.

November 2016

  • Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe is placed under house arrest, as the military take control of the country. He resigns six days later, after 37 years of rule.
  • A mosque attack in Sinai, Egypt kills 305 worshippers and leaves hundreds more wounded.

December 2017

  • Russia is banned from the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea by the International Olympic Committee, following an investigation into state-sponsored doping (the Pisces nano-age overflow is the same period as the Aries nano-age)
  • The Iraqi military announces that it has “fully liberated” all of Iraq’s territory from “ISIS terrorist gangs” and retaken full control of the Iraqi-Syrian border.[1]

January 2018

  • Turkey announces the beginning of a military offensive to capture a portion of northern Syria from Kurdish forces, amidst the ongoing Kurdish–Turkish conflict.

February 2018

  • SpaceX successfully conducts its maiden flight of its most powerful rocket to date, the Falcon Heavy, from LC39A at John F. Kennedy Space Center.
  • The 2018 Winter Olympics were held in South Korea.
  • A school shooting occurs at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, killing 17 people and injuring 17.
  • Iran Aseman Airlines Flight 3704 crashes in the Zagros Mountains, en route from Tehran to Yasuj. All 65 passengers and crew members perish.

March 2018

  • In over 800 cities internationally, people participate in student-led demonstrations against gun violence and mass shootings, calling for stronger gun control in the “March for Our Lives”.
  • At least 64 people die in a fire at a shopping and entertainment complex in the Russian city of Kemerovo.
  • At least 78 people die in a fire in the police headquarters of Valencia, Venezuela.

April 2017

  • The 2018 Commonwealth Games are held in Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia.
  • A semi-truck collides with a bus carrying the Humboldt Broncos ice hockey junior team in Saskatchewan, Canada, killing 15 and injuring 14 people.
  • At least 70 people are reported to have died, with hundreds suffering injuries, after a sarin chemical attack in Douma, the last rebel-held town in Syria’s Eastern Ghouta.[2]

Even if no actual major military conflict occurs, such as the last two Gulf wars in the last two Aries nano-ages and overflows, Aries engenders aggression and over-assertiveness, and this has certainly been the case since the arrival of the Aries nano-age in March 2016. Only in the last few weeks we were told about plans for rules of military engagement for war or conflict in space as if Star Wars is becoming an actual reality.

Scientists and lawyers aims to lay down the law for the military in space

However, the world is now faced with cyberwar as the evidence suggests that the Russians have used the internet to wage war on the USA by helping a candidate that they prefer to win the election.  It is also widely alleged that the Russians have also targeted a number of European countries to either destabilize them or promote Russian interests.  Mark Zuckerberg in his address to a Congressional committee on 10 April 2018, stated that Facebook was at war with Russian meddling and interference.

North Korea is a bigger cyber-attack threat than Russia, says expert

Where is all this leading?  In the short term, we can expect another period of heightened tensions associated with the sting-in-the-tail of the Aries nano-age overflow later in 2018.  The Aries nano-age overflow is the identical time-frame as the Pisces nano-age, and the Pisces nano-age has 12 pica ages (of approximately 5 weeks each).  All periods involved with the astrological ages, except those based on decans, can be divided into 12 sub-periods.

The above ephemeris provides the details the 12 pica ages of the Pisces nano-age (and Aries nano-age overflow) with the Aries sting-in-the-tail highlighted in red and commencing sometime in July, and concluding sometime in September 2018. This is the final most potent time for Aries in the approximate 30 months Aries nano-age and overflow.   We should expect the worse for this period, but fortunately, it has a very short shelf life with the Aries emphasis not only disappearing in September 2018, but also encountering its opposite sign of Libra as the first decan of the following Aquarius nano-age.

FaceBook & Cricket Scandals Point to Cancer!

The Cancer nano-age decan and overflow (November 2017 – April 2018 – September 2018) is starting to make a bigger splash.  The central period, defined as the Cancer quasi nano-age decan (February 2018 – July 2018), is the upper half of the bell curve for Cancer where it is mainly noticed.  The Cancer period is more potent than the average nano-age as it is resonating with the significant Cancer micro-age overflow (Dec 2014 – Nov 2029) and the Cancer micro-age decan overflow (Dec 2014 – Dec 2019).

Graphic Ephemeris

This Cancer period first came to my attention in late January 2018 when I published Timorous Cancer Makes a Splash.  The major new development is the revelation that 50 million Facebook profiles were harvested for Cambridge Analytica in major data breach.  Privacy is a Cancer concern.  This issue has the potential to be as strong as the #MeToo movement, as the #MeToo movement is strongly associated with the overlapping Scorpio nano-age decan and overflow (Jun 2017 – Nov 2017 – April 2018).

Christopher Wylie, Cambridge Analytica whistleblower

Of course, there is a lot more to Cancer than just privacy issues, and further details can be found at Cancer – the New Paradigm for the World

For Australians, and any cricket-following countries, this Cancer period has nailed Australians as first class cheats.  Australian sportspersons have a reputation of taking the moral high ground in any form of cheating in sport.  The attempt to sandpaper the cricket ball at a cricket match in South Africa was a farce as much as a fiasco.  This not only occurred in the current Cancer period, but also the more potent Aries nano-age overflow (Jun 2017 – Sep 2018).  With Aries the sign of sport, Cancer highlights the 4th house, which is an anti-status house (being opposite the 10th house of status).  Furthermore, Cancer stimulates the 8th house of vulnerability to Sagittarius – a key sign associated with Australia.

Another astrological component in this situation is the Pisces nano-age (Jun 2017 – Sep 2018), and Pisces not only deals with all forms of deceit and deception, especially from Pisces corporations such as Facebook and Cambridge Analytica, but Pisces sits in the 12th house to Aries sport.  The 12th hours usually detracts and is the natural house for Pisces.

I have no sympathy for anything to do with cricket as my memories of cricket at school was being forced to stand out under the hot Australian Sun in summertime.  Now while this may be appropriate for England, with their relatively mild summers, under the Sun in summertime Australia is like Hell.  However, Australians love their sport, even if only while watching it on TV, so this cheating scandal involving the number one cricket team in Australia has been the first news item for days.

Another interesting aspect of this sporting scandal is that the Libra full moon on 31 March is the main lunar influence for the full week before and after the exact full moon when the moon is more than 50% illuminated.  This covers the period 17 March to 8 April and suggests that the emotional response to this cheating scandal will remain alive a little longer.  Libra is opposite Aries sport and suggests that the lunation cycle is colluding with the small sub-periods of the astrological ages.  This is not the first instance that i have witnessed.
