Camel Flu (MERS)

The spread of the Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) is slowly gaining traction, especially in South Korea since the end of May 2015.  Thailand has also just announced its first case.  This is a classic example of the sub-periods of the astrological ages in action.  In my recent 9/11 Astrological Anniversary WordPress post of 30 May 2015  I stated:

The Virgo nano-age decan and overflow, especially in its overflow period (October 2015 – March 2016), is likely to see…….  A minor public health threat could raise its head.

At the local level, the key influences in the world are currently:

  • Cancer quasi micro-age decan (July 2012 – June 2017)
  • Cancer quasi nano-age (May 2014 – August 2015)
  • Capricorn quasi nano-age (March 2015 – August 2015)
  • Virgo nano-age decan and overflow (May 2015 – March 2016)

Furthermore, since December 2014 the world has entered the Gemini micro-age (Dec 2014 – Nov 2029).  For those readers unfamiliar with the above sub-periods of the astrological ages, please refer to The Age of Aquarius for Dummies.

The following is a graphic portrayal of the above sub-periods in play:

MERS Sub-periods 1506

All the above periods, including the new Gemini micro-age, are strongly implicated in MERS – and even more specifically to South Korea.  Firstly, the key factor is Cancer, as the world is at the peak of the Cancer micro-age and overflow bell curve (2000-2014-2029).  Not only is the world in this Cancer micro-age and overflow, it is also in the smaller 15 month Cancer quasi nano-age (May 2014 – August 2015).  Cancer always rules the middle of anything, and is the key sign for the Middle East.   MERS is also called camel flu, and camels originate from the Middle East.  Therefore the Middle East is a key contextual focal point in the world due to its association with Cancer.

The Capricorn quasi nano-age decan (March 2015 – August 2015) is mildly implicated as Capricorn is the specific zodiacal sign that rules camels.[i]  The Virgo nano-age decan and overflow (May 2015 – March 2016) is strongly implicated as Virgo is always associated with public health issues.  To be fair with camels, it appears the virus originated in bats, and camels have only transmitted the disease.

Though MERS has been around since May 2013, it only accelerated in April 2014 and became an international newsworthy item since late May 2015, exactly aligned to the arrival of the Virgo nano-age decan and overflow (May 2015 – March 2016).


The first case of a South Korean being infected was in May 2015, and 19 South Koreans have died as of 17 June 2015.[iii]   This suggests that MERS may be an issue in South Korea at least until around March 2016.

The new Gemini micro-age (Dec 2014 – Nov 2029) is also implicated as firstly, Gemini rules lung diseases, and MERS is a viral respiratory infection.  Secondly, though I do not know the astrological signature for South Korea, anecdotal research suggests Gemini is a key sign for all of Korea (North and South).  Gemini, the Twins, indicates duality, and any split country is high on the list for an association with Gemini.

All the astrological ingredients are currently in place for MERS. The above indicates how predictions can be made using combination of sub-periods.  Normally, such an outbreak of MERS should have a limited life associated with the Virgo nano-age decan and overflow  (May 2015 – March 2016), but this situation is clouded not only by the Gemini micro-age (2014 – 2029) but also by the much larger Gemini sub-age decan and overflow (1970 – 2029 – 2059) which is already in its more powerful Gemini quasi sub-age decan (2000 – 2059).  Gemini rules lung diseases and as such, we are entering a period of increased incidences of lung diseases.  Some will be due to the resurgence of TB, others will be due to pollution and in addition there will besome lung diseases due to the normal spread of diseases such as MERS.  MERS may just be a short term problem (5 to 10 months) associated with the Virgo nano-age decan and overflow  (May 2015 – March 2016), but if it picks up on the larger Gemini sub-age decan it could become entrenched as a long term chronic health issue.
