The Cancer Nano-Age Decan & Overflow (July to December 2014 to May 2016)

In late October 2014 the world is transitioning from the Scorpio quasi nano-age decan (May to October 2014) to the Cancer quasi nano-age decan (October 2014 to February 2015).  This transition is one of those rare events where both quasi nano age decans are more important than normal.  The Scorpio quasi nano-age decan is the sting in the tail of the Scorpio micro-age decan overflow (2010 to December 2014) and so has more power than normal.  The Cancer quasi nano-age decan (October 2014 to February 2015) is at the peak of Cancer due to the Cancer micro-age decan and overflow (2010-2014-2019) and the Cancer micro-age and overflow (2000-2014-2029) not to mention the Cancer nano-age decan and overflow (October 2013 – March 2016).  Cancer is paradoxically entering its peak time, as we don’t usually think of Cancer as being ‘strong’.   A sign may not be strong archetypally, but each sign is equivalent in strength, impact and duration when correlated to historical events and developments.

In this post however, I am not examining the whole Cancer micro-age and overflow (2000-2014-2029) but just the tiny Cancer nano-age decan & overflow (July to December 2014 to May 2016).  However though the Scorpio quasi nano-age decan (May to October 2014) theoretically is coming to an end, the Scorpio nano-age decan overflow (July to December 2014) continues to influence vents. One textbook example is the attack on the Canadian government by a recently radicalised Canadian Muslim in late October 2014.  Canada and Islam are both strongly associated with Cancer and terrorism is associated with Scorpio.

The home-grown Canadian terrorist attack highlights the facts that in this short but peak time assigned to Cancer, any country (or region) with Cancer located in their astrological signature are prime targets for events both positive and negative.  What countries are associated with Cancer?   I have not engaged in comprehensive research into the astrological signatures of countries, so I am basically limited to major countries.  The biggest country associated with Cancer is China while the Islamic religion is also strongly associated to Cancer.  Any remnants of the old Mother Goddess ‘religion’ will also be associated with Cancer.  The Vikings were a Cancer phenomenon so all the Scandinavian countries plus territories conquered by the Vikings have Cancer associations.  This includes Russia, the UK, Iceland and France.  Canada also appears related to Cancer as do the Yellow River in China, the Mediterranean Sea and the Middle East.  Some of Polynesia is associated with Cancer, especially New Zealand.  India and Mexico also seem to be associated with Cancer.  India has experienced phenomenal economic performance over the last 15 years while Mexico has repeatedly come into the news due to the excessive crime gangs (Scorpio) centered on the illegal drug trade. The USA is related to Cancer via Cancer’s opposite sign Capricorn – third down on the USA’s totem pole. Cancer is not a good sign for the USA.

Most of above countries have made a greater impact than normal since the beginning of the Cancer micro-age in 2000.  Issues related to Islam and the Middle East have been the focus of unbelievably expensive wars with limited results.  The 9/11 terrorist attack on the USA at the beginning of the Cancer micro-age spurred the USA into over a decade of military conflict in the Middle East to little avail. The USA’s Capricorn invokes the 7th house conflict mode in a Cancer period but being in the 7th house, it brings no strength to the USA but detracts from it.  Russia has recently achieved its greatest notoriety since the days of the former USSR by annexing Crimea and supporting ethic Russian insurgents in the Ukraine.

China has been transformed during the Cancer micro-age into a superpower that is on the brink of surpassing the economic strength of the USA. Most people extrapolate China’s economic development over the past 15 years into the indeterminate future, but while China is expected to do very well in the Cancer micro-age decan overflow to 2029, its trajectory past that point remains uncertain.  The recent hiatus in Hong Kong by democracy-leaning students is a minor aspect of Cancer, but what is certain, like the attack in Canada, we should expect further events associated with Cancer countries and regions – especially over the next five months.

Research from about one decade ago also suggests that the following are also associated with Cancer: canals, food and famine, mental diseases, migrations (including refugees, legal and illegal), milk, mining, the Moon, photography, protectionism (economics), ships, temperance, tsunamis, water, women and workers, the working class, the common people.  Public opinion call also be added into this mix, and the disease cancer).  Events associated with these topics should dominate in the coming 5 months and be highly influential for the following 15 years.  This short Cancer period should in general be good for economic conditions.

Due to the concentration of Cancer, especially in the Cancer quasi nano-age decan (October 2014 to February 2015), I will add specific notable events as they occur in this five month period at the end of this post.  This is the first time I have tracked the peak of a 15 year micro-age in real time and so it should be an enlightening experience!   If I am lucky, there will be an epiphany or two involved – astrologers live for epiphanies.

    Hello Mr. Mackinnell!

    I do follow this blog of yours with curiosity and try always to make a link between world events and influences that come from the different planets above us.
    Would you please explain the meaning of this sentence:”….This is the first time I have tracked the peak of a micro-age decan in real time and so it should be an enlightening experience! If I am lucky, there will be an epiphany or two involved – astrologers live for epiphanies…” Were you talking about an astrological or some kind of religious epiphany, or something inbetween? I’m waiting for a religious epiphany between september 2014-oktober 2015 and I was thinking about it when I read this article of yours.

    Best regards,

    Gert Gjoni-Hartel,

    • Hi Gert, there are two parts to the sentence. Firstly, I made an error in the statement “micro-age decan”, it should read “15 year micro-age” and I have corrected this already in the post. In 2000 when the Cancer micro-age arrived, I was unaware of this fact as my rectification was retarded (by at least 8 years). Now that my rectification is accurate down to a matter of months I know where all the cusps are located. So with the cusp of the Cancer and Gemini micro-ages occurring in (or around December 2014), I can follow this event in real time. This is the most major cusp to date I have been able to follow in real time. I did follow the arrival of the Cancer micro-age decan (2010-2014) in 2010 in real time as I had my overall rectification quiet tight by 2010 – my rectification has only changed by a matter of months since 2010 due to the discovery of 5 months nano-age decans a few years ago.

      Re the epiphanies, I was referring to astrological epiphanies. I have also had my fair share of ‘religious’ epiphanies in my life but they have nothing whatsoever to do with astrology. Astrology is ‘true’ but it is not the ‘Truth’. It is an overlooked fact by most astrologers that Scorpio is the sign of ‘inner Truth’ and that the world has been under the strong influence of the Scorpio sub-age overflow since 1970. It was no accident that the 1960s and 70s saw a mass of gurus, teachers, meditations etc appear on the scene. One of the reasons the world is so troubling for many people is the strength of Scorpio lies within while the weakness of Scorpio lies in the external world. We will not find reassurance, stability or tranquillity by following external world events at this time in history. I assume the religious epiphany you are waiting for has been indicated by some transits or other indicators in your personal horoscope? You can always try Words of Peace –

  2. President Obama’s executive actions on immigration has to be postponed due to an adverse ruling by a Texas judge. This occurred only one day before hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants were to begin applying for work permits and legal protection. This is the Capricorn nano-age decan in action, in opposition to the stronger and prevailing headwind from the Cancer micro-age and overflow (2000-2014-2029) with Capricorn opposite Cancer. Under Cancer, many more people look for a new homeland – usually due to dire circumstances of one sort or another of their country of birth or residence. While it may seem strange that a little 10 month Capricorn nano-age decan and overflow can usurp a 30 year period associated with Cancer, it can only do so for a short time, as Cancer will prevail ultimately over Capricorn. There will be temporary reversals of issues associated with Cancer, or some other opposition. Even the recent sentencing of the captain of the ill-fated Costa Concordia that capsized and sank off the coast of Italy on 13 January 2012, with the loss of 32 lives involves the Cancer-Capricorn opposition as Cancer rules boats.
