A Short Return to Glory (or Infamy) for the USA?

The developing momentum of the Pisces nano-age decan (June 2017 – September 2018) is continuing to pick up steam.  I have just added four more entries to my Pisces nano-age database:

  • California rings in new year with broad legalization of marijuana[1]
  • Jeff Sessions to crack down on legalized marijuana, ending Obama-era policy[2]
  • Blueprint to expand offshore drilling in the USA (for oil)
  • Oil tanker collides with another ship in the East China Sea
  • Trump signs bill to improve opioid screening technology[3]

Drugs and everything to do with oil are ruled by Pisces.  With the oil tanker collision and blaze, this is a classic example of the fusion of two nano-ages: the Aries nano-age overflow with the Pisces nano-age as the oil tanker experienced an (Aries) collision and has been burning out of control for days.

Though the following list is incomplete, these are all the older newsworthy events I have collected since the arrival of the Pisces nano-age in June 2017:

  • Oil prices are surging as a Saudi political purge sparks ‘runaway market’
  • Uber covered up massive hack that exposed data of 57m users and drivers
  • Croatian War Criminal Dies After Swallowing Poison in Court
  • Italy declares state of emergency after deadly gas explosion in Austria
  • Rupert Murdoch reshapes media empire with $66bn Disney deal
  • Apple apologises for slowing down older iPhones
  • Trump claims China ‘caught red handed’ transferring oil to North Korea
  • ‘It’s all fentanyl’: opioid crisis takes shape in Philadelphia as overdoses surge
  • Ongoing Bitcoin and pseudo-currency bubbles

The above include the following Pisces’ archetypes:

  • Deception
  • Poisons
  • Gas
  • Hollywood
  • Pseudo
  • Economic bubbles

If you examine the following graphic, the world is currently climbing towards the peak of the Pisces nano-age and overflow with the base of this Pisces influence stretching from June 2017 to December 2019 with the peak influence September to November 2018.  These small nano-ages represent 1/1728 of an age as there are 12 sub-ages in each astrological age, 12 micro-ages in each sub-age, and 12 nano-ages in each micro-age (see The Age of Aquarius for Dummies  for more details on the internal structure of ages).

Pisces nano-age and overflow including smaller and larger periods

While Pisces is developing in strength, the effects from the Aries nano-age overflow (June 2017 – September 2018) remains stronger (at this point of time), so we will have to endure until September 2018 the macho games of Donald Trump, China’s leader and other warmongers with the heightened possibility of a regional conflict (see Take Your Pick: War or Terrorism ).  China’s leader recently impassionedly expressed to Chinese soldiers that they should be ready to die for their country.  This is the type of political posturing and nonsense expected from an Aries period including the verbal warfare between Trump and North Korea’s leader.  We should feel very fortunate if all these aggressive tirades lead to nothing.

Another good example of this aggressive Aries posturing from the Trump adminsitration:

Arms control advocates have voiced alarm at the new proposal to make smaller, more “usable” nuclear weapons, arguing it makes a nuclear war more likely, especially in view of what they see as Donald Trump’s volatility and readiness to brandish the US arsenal in showdowns with the nation’s adversaries.[4]

Though Aries is currently dominant, Pisces is structurally stronger than Aries at this point in the 26,000 years cycle of ages, because while the world is currently passing through the Age of Aquarius, the influence from the Pisces age overflow (1433 – 3574) remains far more powerful – at least until the year 2503.  Our little Pisces nano-age is resonating with the supremely powerful Pisces age overflow so we should expect a little more from this Pisces period than we normally should expect from any random nano-age.

Pisces is the primary sign for the USA (see “Pisces America”) which is why I label the USA the age empire of our times similar to Ancient Rome, Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia in their respective ages.  This does not mean that age empires have some kind of God appointed role in the world as if they were superior, it usually means that an age empire has been fortunate enough to marshal the types of social, political and economic resources that best suits the time compared to other regions.

Pisces also is strongly associated with Europe, all the Pacific island nations, the oceans in general, Ireland, Mexico, Spain, Turkey and the Ukraine so we should expect some focus greater than normal on these regions in the current Pisces period.  Already the standoff between Catalonia and Spain is part of this Pisces mix – so don’t expect this issue to disappear in the short to medium term.  We may hear more about ocean level rise or other degradation of the oceans due to man-made pollution.

Because Pisces is the primary sign for the USA and Europe, there should be added focus on these two regions.  While Pisces may be the strongest sign for these two regions, their respective astrological signatures are very different, as the USA is a Pisces –Aquarius nation while Europe is a Pisces-Aries continent and furthermore, each sub-region and country within Europe are ruled by different signs.  For example, Southern and Eastern Europe is associated with Capricorn while northern and Western Europe by Virgo.  Individual countries have their own signature, and the UK is strongly associated with Leo and Taurus and France with Leo, Scorpio and Pisces.

The Taurus association to the UK explains its strong conservative edge (reluctance to change) with their anachronistic monarchy still their head of state – but not necessarily to the disadvantage of the UK.  Scorpio with France explains their strong sexual identity and also the historical enmity between France and the UK as Taurus is opposite in nature to Taurus.  Germany has a strong Aquarius and Scorpio association which again points to the historical conflicts with England (Scorpio opposite Taurus) and Germany’s Aquarius is opposite France’s and England’s Leo.  All three countries however can be identified with Virgo – the sign associated with north-eastern Europe.

North-eastern Europe may be in for some difficult times in this Pisces nano-age as Pisces is opposite Virgo in nature.  But this little Pisces period sits within the larger and more powerful Aquarius quasi micro-age decan (June 2017 – June 2022) and so this intrinsically favors Germany and opposes both France and the UK with their respective Leo’s in opposition to Aquarius. Germany should be relatively unscathed by the Aquarius quasi micro-age decan.

The deteriorating situation for Pisces Europe due to the Aquarius quasi micro-age decan can be seen with Brexit – with the UK virtually committing economic suicide though many commentators belive the outcome was based on racism promoting an anti-immigration stance (conservative Taurus wins again).  This situation is being driven by the even more powerful Cancer micro-age overflow (2014 – 2029), and Cancer always is associated with people looking for a new homeland (as Cancer is the sign of homes).  Cancer is also the sign of the Middle East where many immigrants are sourced.  Cancer also favors short term populace policies over long term policies based on wisdom with populace polices the equivalent to the general public’s emotional response to a situation.

France and England’s respective totemic Leo in opposition to the Aquarius quasi micro-age decan (and earlier arriving Aquarius micro-age decan) explains why both have had to weather the worst of the urban terrorism to date by disenchanted ISIS supporters.

There is a time fuse on this disenchantment by extremists Muslims (and on Islam in general) as Islam is strongly associated with Cancer.  Christianity is a Pisces-Scorpio religion while Islam is a Pisces-Cancer religion and both have a strong background Aries influence, though this is stronger in Christianity than Islam.  There is enough Aries associated with Christianity and Islam to keep them needlessly fighting for some time to come, but even this is very slowly on the wane due to the massive Libra age-decan and overflow (1433 – 2148 – 2863) but it will be the post 2148 world that will experience the greatest benefit from Libra.

The current Cancer influence commenced with the Cancer micro-age, and the 9/11 attack in September 2001 marked the real initiation of the Cancer micro-age and overflow (2000 – 2014 – 2029).  This Cancer momentum then flows over into the following period for about 5 years before it meets stiff resistance from the Capricorn micro-age decan and overflow (Nov 2029 – Oct 2034 – Oct 2039), especially around 2034 onwards.  Capricorn is the opposite sign to Cancer.  This means there is a timestamp on Cancer-orientated developments (Islam, volatile Middle East, immigrants and refugees and China).

Some may feel daunted by the prospect that the current anxiety in the world posed by extremist Muslims has another 16 years to run riot, but fortunately, this small Cancer mountain is now on the downhill slide.  Its most potent time has actually passed (Dec 2014 – Jun 2017), and the next significant drop in Cancer’s influence is December 2019 when the Cancer micro-age decan overflow concludes.  In June 2022, the Cancer quasi micro-age (Jul 2007 – Jun 2022) comes to an end indicating another demotion of Cancer.  In November 2029 is the final drop with the technical end of the Cancer micro-age overflow (Dec 2014 – Nov 2029), but the period August 2028 to November 2029 is the final flick of the dragon’s tail temporarily lifting the status of Cancer as a parting gesture.

Cancer’s influence will get replaced by Gemini, which is not only the incoming micro-age and overflow (2014 – 2029 – 2044), but also the beginning of the highpoint of the really powerful 119 years Gemini sub-age decan and overflow (1970 – 2029 – 2089) – see Gemini’s Role in our Modern World (or Battle of the Brains).

The approaching peak of the small Pisces nano-age and overflow (Sep 2018 – April 2019) will therefore be the peak time for an economic bubble and strong focus on the USA and Europe for better or worse.  This 1st house focus for the USA and Europe can bring both positive and negative qualities, as the 1st house is associated with the ‘health’ of any subject, and suggest that both Europe and the USA can get an allegorical cold or flu.  However, any ‘ill-health’ is unlikely to be the dominant theme, and both the USA and Europe should be temporarily appearing like they are again at the top of their game.  However, both may experience more extreme ravages from the adverse effects of climate change brought about by human-induced pollution.

It’s rather unfortunate for Europe and the USA that Pisces is associated with mirages. It will be unpleasant when this mirage dissolves like a dawn fog. Both regions should expect another hour-of-reckoning when the following Aquarius nano-age and overflow (Sep 2018 – Dec 2019 – Mar 2021) seriously comes online – especially the second half of this period.  Aquarius sits at the 12th house to Pisces – the sign of ‘self-undoing’.  Germany will probably weather this storm relatively well.

In conclusion, the current Pisces nano-age decan and overflow (Jun 2017 – Sep 2018 – Dec 2019) can be divided into four stages, and currently it is in stage 1 (Jun 17 – Feb 18), the weakest of all the stages (stage 3 is the strongest).  Stage 1 merely sets the table for the coming feast, but already my Pisces nano-age database is lighting up like neon lights in a restaurant district after sunset, so we should have an interesting Pisces roller coaster ride in 2018 and especially 2019.  Following the roller coaster ride of this small Pisces period should be highly illustrative about the role of nano-ages.

Nano-ages are not the smallest sub-periods of the astrological ages – I have identified two smaller periods: nano-age decans and pica ages but pica ages remain only semi-legible.  nano-age decans provide spectacular color to the nano-ages, and if you refer to the graphic above, you will notice that we are in the Scorpio nano-age decan and overflow of the Pisces nano-age.  This Scorpio nano-age decan is driving the me-to movement exposing the sexual predatory behavior of many males in Hollywood, the media and politicians.  See Weinstein’s Date With Fate for more details.
