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.

Scorpios’ Parting Shots – the Scorpio nano-age decan and overflow (February to December 2014)

As long as the Earth spins through space world events never seem to stop, and we have experienced since mid-2014 a number of events that are troubling to many people. To the unsuspecting, all these events appear to be random or even chaotic, but this is not the case – there is a pattern hiding behind it all – and the pattern has a lot to do with Scorpio with Cancer also chipping in.

ISIS (or ISIL) stormed out of its stronghold in Syria in June 2014 and has taken large swaths of territory in Iraqi and Syria, and currently is threatening a Kurdish city in eastern Syria on the border with Turkey.  Despite raising the ire of superpowers and many powerful nations, air strikes do not seem to stop them.  Their infamy is not so much from the territory they have conquered since mid-2014 but due to a number of beheadings of western hostages graphically transmitted on the internet.  They also demonstrated callous treatment of defeated Iraqi soldiers.  It is alleged that even al-Qaida finds them too extreme! I have encountered many people who are convinced that the appearance of ISIS is the possible beginning of the Third World War.

After seven weeks of fighting between Israel and Hamas in July and August, around 100 Palestinians and 71 Israelis were reportedly killed and many atrocities occurred.  This has settled back down to the ongoing stalemate that has existed for many years and is bound to flare up again.  Also in July Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was shot down over Ukraine either accidentally or on purpose by separatist rebels (with the backing of Russia).  This is another catastrophic blow to Malaysian Airlines following the loss of Flight 370 earlier in 2014.

In September the Scots voted “No” to Independence with a 55% to 45% majority, thus putting to bed for a generation (or a decade), calls for political independence from the UK.[1]

Ebola has reared its ugly head and like some modern-day plague, it has caused havoc in some western African countries with some possible cases of Ebola spreading to countries in the Developed World.  The epidemic began in Guinea in December 2013 then spread to Liberia and Sierra Leone with some cases in Senegal and Nigeria.  As of early October there have been over 8,000 suspected cases with almost half dying of the disease, though the real figures may be much higher.  In September 2014the World Health Organisation (WHO) stated,

“The Ebola epidemic ravaging parts of West Africa is the most severe acute public health emergency seen in modern times. Never before in recorded history has a biosafety level four pathogen infected so many people so quickly, over such a broad geographical area, for so long.” [2]

Will this spread out of control into a world-wide disaster?

Very recently Hong Kong students have been upsetting their Chinese overlords with their demands for the upholding of democracy and democratic standards in the former British colony of Hong Kong.  In response, the Chinese government has been clamping down on sympathisers within its borders and Hong Kong authorities are doing everything possible to curtail the unrest.

In “Echo of crisis in Europe gridlock”[3] it is claimed the economic malaise that has recently become obvious in Europe is an echo of the GFC with many European countries experiencing stalled economic recovery and the political system appears unable to do anything about it.

The above stories are just the pick of the crop, but do highlight the underlining associations with sub-periods of the precessional ages – but which sub-periods?  ISIS is an interesting conundrum as it could be linked to one of two periods – or even both.  The Cancer micro-age (previously noted as 2000 – 2015 but more accurately comes to a presumed end in December 2014) is the key sign associated with Islam and the Middle East.  The middle of anything is more often than not associated with Cancer.   As a graphic image, the 9/11 attack on the USA occurred just one year with the Cancer micro-age, and it is very possible that ISIS is standing sentinel at the other end.  If this assessment is correct, then the world can expect a far greater impact from Islamic extremism over the coming 15 to 20 years, especially until around 2022, but without the recent gore.

However, there is another possibility.  The middle decan of the Cancer micro-age is the Scorpio micro-age decan (2005-10), with its overflow period covering 2010 to December 2014.  Scorpio is strongly associated with terrorists, deaths (beheadings) and revolutionaries, so the appearance of ISIS during this Scorpio micro-age decan overflow may just be a parting shot and consequently a very short term phenomenon.  This is strengthened by the fact that there is always a sting in the tail of any overflow period, and this was the case for Scorpio in the period February to December 2014 with its most potent period the middle five months (approximately May to September 2014).[4]  ISIS certainly has gained world-wide attention in this Scorpio sting but will it just be a flash in the pan for a few months, or will it ride the powerful Cancer micro-age overflow commencing in December 2014 for many years to come?  I suspect that ISIS or something similar will ride the extremist Islamic tsunami for the next seven to 20 years, but not necessarily as bloodthirsty as Scorpio quickly retreats from the stage.

The seven weeks of fighting between Israel and Hamas in July and August 2014 is demonstrative of the potent peak of the receding Scorpio nano-age decan.  While this is not the end of this decades-long conflict, it suggests that this particular moment has passed and it will be repeated at the next possible opportunity.  December 2014 sees the beginning of the 15 years Gemini micro-age and the first micro-age decan within the Gemini micro-age is an Aquarian micro-age decan.  The Aquarius micro-age decan and overflow (December 2014 – 2019 – 2024) will have its peak approximately from 2017 to 2022.  All hell can be expected to be unleashed by Hamas and/or its allies against Israel during this time frame but Israel can be expected to withstand this particular onslaught.  The last time Aquarius was powerful (the Aquarius micro-age overflow 1925-40 saw the beginning of the decimation of European Jews during the Holocaust. The sign Aquarius is historically unfavourable to Jews and Israel, very possibly due to the fact that Leo and Taurus are strongly placed in the astrological signature for Jews and Israel, and Leo is opposite Aquarius (while Scorpio is opposite Taurus).

The seven weeks of fighting between Israel and Hamas in mid-2014 stimulated the Scorpio opposite Israel’s Taurus. The coming Aquarius micro-age decan and overflow is also contained with the Gemini micro-age (2014-2029) but Gemini is opposite Sagittarius, the key signs at the time of Abraham, the Jewish patriarch, around 4,000 years ago placing Sagittarius also in the astrological signature of Israel and the Jewish religion.  The Aquarius micro-age decan and overflow (December 2014 – 2019 – 2024) will provide a glimpse into the future of Israel as the end of the 21st century is a mighty Aquarius hotspot surrounding the peak in the middle of the Aquarius sub-age decan and overflow (2029-2089-2148).  The years 2059 to 2018 are fraught with extreme danger for Israel.  The world will be a very different place at the end of the 21st century.

I have written a whole blog post on Ebola[5] and the reader can get all the details there.  Ebola has a similarity to AIDS inasmuch it has also been present for many decades with various outbreaks between 1976 and 2014.  Therefore, similar to AIDS, Ebola can be linked with the fortunes of the Scorpio sub-age overflow (1970-2148).  The 2014 Ebola epidemic is certainly stimulated by the Scorpio sting in the tail, a clear parting shot from Scorpio.  To be a really major epidemic like the Black Death of the 14th century or the Spanish flu of 1918, Pisces needs to be strongly involved.  This is not the case with the 2014 Ebola outbreak and so it will not turn into an apocalyptic epidemic, but it may follow in the footsteps of the AIDS/HIV epidemic.

Scorpio, like Aquarius, is a revolutionary sign, and the current Scorpio micro-age decan and overflow (2005-14) has shown how the youthful revolutionary spirit of the 1960s and 70s has now spread to non-western nations. The Arab Uprising in many Middle Eastern countries was a grassroots attempt to bring their governments under the control of the people.  Are the Hong Kong students demonstrations related to the same heightened Scorpio influence that also inflamed the Middle East and Hamas?  Yes and no because the world has moved on to the business end of Cancer.  Not only are we in the Cancer micro-age until December 2014, but also the Cancer micro-age decan (2010-December 2014) and the Cancer nano-age (2013-14).  Cancer is the key sign for China, and so China should come under the spotlight, one way or another.  Certainly in the Cancer micro-age decan (2000 – December 2014) China has moved mountains.  According to the International Monetary Fund, China’s annual average GDP growth between 2001 and 2010 was 10.5% and between 2007 and 2011, its growth rate was equivalent to all of the G7 countries’ growth combined.[6] Based on the 15 years Cancer micro-age overflow commencing December 2014, China should go into orbit, but not with some developing deep seated issues.  The Aquarian micro-age decan and overflow (December 2014 – 2019 – 2024), which will have its peak approximately from 2017 to 2022 is antagonistic to Cancer.  We can expect increased revolutionary elements within China and increased fascist (authoritarian) responses by the Chinese government both revolutionaries and fascists are under the rulership of Aquarius.

The time of real change in China is more likely to be associated with the Gemini micro-age overflow commencing in 2029 which is also the beginning of the large Gemini sub-age decan overflow.  Gemini undermines Cancer China.[7]  The last major Gemini period was the Gemini sub-age and overflow (713-894-1073 AD) which saw the An Shi Rebellion in 755 in the north of China. Though this rebellion was militarily over by  763 it greatly weakened the central leadership of China, and a devolution of power commenced.  The centralized Chinese government basically disintegrated in 907.[8] Regardless if the final disintegration was the result of the rebellion or not, this Gemini sub-age and overflow did not boost China.  The middle of the 21st century indicates an allegorical repeat of the former Gemini sub-age and overflow.

The shooting down of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 over Ukraine is a classic Scorpio hotspot event.  This is based not only on the deaths of the passenger and crew but the fact that it was the result of the action or careless action of pro-Russian insurgents cements its Scorpio association. The media circus surrounding every aspect of this shot down flight indicates its prominence as a major event in 2014.  Cancer is favourable to Russia, and also Aquarius, so whatever is coming up for Russia, it does not indicate a problematic time.  From a third party viewpoint, Russia has just succeeded in bringing the Crimea back into Russia’s orbit, and the same appears to be happening with Eastern Ukraine with large pockets of ethnic Russian inhabitants.  Scorpio is also associated with tyrants, and now President Putin of Russia has become the world’s most high profile ‘tyrant’ (but certainly nowhere near the tyrannical realms of Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot etc.)

Scotland is another country that has Cancer strongly placed in its astrological signature.  Cancer is the sign of home and security, and the Scots chose this security over political independence, but the vote was relatively close indicating a divided general public.  The Scorpio hotspot does not antagonise Cancer and the UK is not an authoritarian and undemocratic country like China so there was in fact, little for the Scots to rebel against – except another Scorpio archetype, social security.  As part of the UK, the Scots enjoy a top level social security system which may have been affected negatively if they hand to stand on their own two feet as a separate nation. Taurus may also be in the signature for the Scots and in a Scorpio period, anything associated with Taurus will tend to be divided or experience lack of unity, and any lasting promotion of Scotland as a separate state is unlikely.

Before the 2014 Scorpio hotspot I was also promoting a minor return or memory of the GFC.  This has occurred and as I write, all manner of minor economic doom, reduced growth forecasts, stock market falls and deflationary economies have been weighing down the financial world.  While this is expected to come to an end soon, after only a few months respite, another short term economic gloomy period is due in early 2015 due to the coming Capricorn nano-age decan and overflow (December 2014 to October 2015) with its most influential time associated with the Capricorn quasi nano-age decan (February to June 2015) – more to come in a later post.

In recent weeks the Roman Catholic Church has mooted a change of direction in its stance on gays, gay marriage and sex before marriage.  Though not condoning these activities they are also suggesting that they will not persecute or rebuff such people.  This is a major turnaround on issues related to (Scorpio) sex – exactly on cue for the Scorpio hotspot!

Anything to do with nuclear energy is ruled by Scorpio.  The majority of the world’s nuclear power stations were constructed or commenced in the previous Scorpio micro-age and overflow (1955-70-85) with only a small number commissioned after 1985 but over the last ten years of the smaller Scorpio micro-age decan and overflow (2005-10-December 2014) a resurgence of nuclear reactor construction has occurred despite to shortcomings of nuclear power demonstrated by the Fukishima disaster.  Between 2005 and 2014, at least 85 nuclear reactors have commenced construction or commissioned with 37 reactors in China alone.[9]  Within the parting Scorpio hotspot the Japanese government has announced in September 2014 that it will reopen some of the nation’s nuclear reactors, after nearly a year without nuclear energy while some older plants will be permanently closed.[10]

All the above parting shots from Scorpio are associated with a five month Scorpio nano-age decan and five month overflow sitting in the last nano-age at the end of both the Scorpio micro-age decan overflow (2010- December 14) and the Cancer micro-age (2000-December 2014).  The major Scorpio developments during this little Scorpio hotspot are clearly obvious because of resonance.  The little Scorpio hotspot is resonating with the larger Scorpio micro-age decan overflow (2010- December 14) which is resonating with the very powerful Scorpio sub-age overflow (1970-2148).  This makes the little Scorpio hotspot standout.

ISIS has virtually sprung out of nowhere and has already shown they are a force to be reckoned with. Ebola has behaved like Pandora ’s Box – it is unlikely Ebola can be stuffed back in so easily.  Hong Kong students have hoisted the flag of democracy against the most powerful autocratic nation in the world – a shot across the bows (or a mouse against an elephant).  This is a long term story that is playing out and China’s ever expanding future is not guaranteed. Similarly, the seven weeks of fighting between Israel and Hamas in mid-2014 shows the basic discord between Israel and Palestinians that will not go away.  This is still early days in the revolutionary Scorpio sub-age overflow (1970-2148) and like China, Israel’s future may not be as stable as it currently appears.  When Scorpio’s flag is lowered from the mast at the end of 2014, we will not see another Scorpio hotspot period similar to 2005-2014 until the next Scorpio micro-age and decan and overflow in (2059-2069).

Ukraine & the Pisces Nano-Age Decan & Overflow

Based on my ‘average’ ephemeris, the Pisces nano-age decan and overflow (the full bell curve) is in force commencing October 2013, peaking in February 2014 and ending its overflow period in July 2014. The Pisces quasi nano-age (i.e. the upper half of the bell curve) is January to April 2014. The Pisces nano-age decan is the first of three decans of the Cancer nano-age (October 2013 – December 2014).  This Cancer nano-age is the last nano-age of the Cancer micro-age (February 2000 – December 2014).  The world is entering the business-end of Cancer as it heads into its powerful overflow period.  Many events currently occurring in the world will blend with Cancer.

Already there is clear evidence that the Pisces nano-age decan has made its influence felt such as: the Obamacare crisis in US due to the debt crisis ceiling; J.P. Morgan Chase’s massive fine for deceptive trading; the London slavery scandal; Nigella Lawson accused of being a drug addict; disputed Chinese airspace over disputed islands; major oil spill/leak in China; worldwide economic mini-bubble; Pacific nuclear pollution following the Fukushima nuclear disaster;  the mysterious disappearance of Malaysian Flight 370 and very recently the South Korean ferry disaster.  [i]All these events include strong archetypal connection to Pisces.  However Pisces is only a minor nano-age decan, and so we should expect events predicated by Pisces to be more a flavoring.  The main medium-term game in town is undoubtedly Cancer.

Despite the little Pisces nano-age decan being at the very bottom of the totem pole of the astrological ages, it is intrinsically enhanced because it is also the sign at the very top.  Pisces is the major sign currently in the world as the world is in the Pisces-Aquarius Age (1433-3574) where Pisces is the dominant paradigm but Aquarius is the strongest emergent influence.  The dominance of Pisces is reflected inasmuch the world is currently in the Pisces quasi-age (352 – 2503 AD) where Pisces is the absolute leader.  Quasi periods reflect the strongest sign at any point of time representing the upper half of the bell curve.  Secondly, most of the 20th century was under the influence of the Pisces sub-age decan and overflow (1851-1910-1970) with the Pisces quasi sub-age decan (1881-1940) that included the First World War and the beginning of the Second World War.  This period was mostly likely Pisces’ swansong as it will take about another 26,000 for Pisces to be as strong in the world as it was in the 20th century.  This means that Pisces-ruled European wars of self-destruction belong to the past, not the foreseeable  future.

Pisces is not only the defining sign for the current epoch, but also the key sign for Europe and the USA (the key difference between the two is that Europe’s supporting sign is Aries while for the USA it is Aquarius).  Under Pisces, symbolically represented by two fish swimming in opposite directions, anything associated with Pisces usually display schisms or splits.  This first occurred soon after the arrival of the Pisces-Aquarius in 1433 AD when Europe split between Roman Catholics and Protestants. Pisces is the sign of belief systems (especially with incredibly intricate dogmas etc).  In the previous age under Aries, Rome, and other powers basically were rooted in military might and patriotism.  Since Pisces has taken over the baton, now it is belief systems that govern the world and people will actually die for their beliefs.  The first thing discovered with belief-systems is there is no need for any reality to be present, as belief-systems are usually predicated upon fantasies that their adherents claim to be absolutely true, mixed with a little bit of truth or reality.   One such fantasy is that capitalism is the supreme or ‘right’ economic model for the world.  If ever the world is governed by delusion and illusion (or maya), this is the time we live in.  The Indians call this the worst of all ages, the Age of Kali Yuga.

The 20th century Pisces hotspot manifested itself in Europe with the First World War, followed by another schism in the Second World War then finally by the Iron Curtain (Aries) splitting Europe longitudinally between capitalist democracies and communism (another belief-driven fantasy).  The USA appropriately  commenced its influential role in the Pisces sub-age decan and overflow (1851-1910-1970) with the American Civil War (1861-65) and by the conclusion of this Pisces period  was well and truly the Age Empire of our times.

The antecedents to our 2014 minor Pisces period sees its roots in the major Pisces sub-age decan and overflow (1851-1910-1970) where the geo-politics of the modern world was established.  This specifically applies to the unrest in the Ukraine which has reignited the former polarisation of Europe.  The innate tensions came to world’s attention in November 2013 when the Ukraine government rejected an economic association agreement with the European Union and instead turned to closer ties with Russia.  This commenced pro-European demonstrations supported by the majority of Ukraine’s population in its west.

In February 2014, very soon after the arrival of the more portent form of Pisces – the Pisces quasi nano-age (January to April 2014), the Russian-leaning president fled the scene and Ukraine appointed a European-leaning president after considerable civil unrest by the European-leaning population in the west.  The Russian-leaning eastern population commenced rejecting the authority of Ukraine’s central government and in March Crimea separated itself from Ukraine and was willingly annexed by Russia.  This irritated western powers and by the end of March Russia had been suspended from the G8 and the UN rejected Russian annexation of Crimea and the Crimean referendum that supported this annexation.  Further sanctions were put in place against Russia in April 2014 by the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE).[ii]

The association of the Ukraine crisis with the Pisces nano-age decan and overflow (October 2013 – February 2014 – July 2014) with the hottest action occurring in the Pisces quasi nano-age (January to April 2014) suggests that this issue will commence to sublimate itself into business-as-usual in the geo-political landscape by May, and that it ceases to be a real issue by around August 2014.

However, as mentioned earlier, these events are all occurring near the peak of the Cancer micro-age and overflow (2000-2015-2029).  All the countries invaded by the Vikings under the major Cancer age-decan overflow (713-1433 AD) have Cancer strongly placed in their respective astrological signatures.  The Vikings invaded the UK, Normandy (France) and Russia and were instrumental in the formation of the first Slavic governments in Russia in the 9th century.[iii]

Therefore Russia has the backing of Cancer, which is not only strongly located in its astrological signature, but also strategically opposite Capricorn which is strategically located in the astrological signature of the USA.  Considering that both the USA and Russia share the sign Aquarius, and both nations have a relationship with Pisces, it is the Cancer-Capricorn opposition that defines their inherent opposition to each other.  This can further be demonstrated by the fact that Cancer is the sign of the common people and the common people of Russia violently threw off their capitalist overlords in the early years of the 20th century and formed the seed of the Communist Bloc that became the defining geo-political reality for the mid-20th century.  On the other extreme, the USA is notably the most antagonistic to its common people in the Western World in relation to basic services such as health care and social security and is traditionally the major supporter of policies associated with the fundamentalist (Capricorn) Christian religion outlook in the Western World.

Based on this Capricorn-Cancer analysis  as a guide for relations between the USA and Russia, in the current period, Russia is holding the astrological cards as Cancer is in its 1st house for Russia, but 7th house of opposition and detraction for the USA.  It is extremely unlikely the western world will wrest Crimea from Russia regardless of whatever sanctions are put in place (Putin Place?) and that any headway the remaining eastern Ukrainians make in forging close ties with Russia before August 2014 will become cemented in Ukraine’s future political reality.

The only unanswered question here is the Scorpio quasi nano-age decan (May – Sep 2014) that must be passed through before Cancer becomes temporary absolute king of the castle.  Scorpio favors revolution and upheaval over continuity and stability.  It therefore favors the Russian-orientated areas of the former Ukraine because, though the initial revolutionary fervor came from the western European-orientated Ukrainians, this quickly passed to the eastern Russian-orientated population.   Under Cancer, Russia (and China) plus any other nations strongly aligned to Cancer (Scandinavia, lands on the Mediterranean, the Middle East, New Zealand etc.) will be astrologically favored – though this can mean an astrological focus either positive or negative.[iv]  In the same way that Pisces split Europe for most of the 20th century, the current little Pisces period is indicating the same but on a much smaller scale.  Whatever split becomes entrenched in the former Ukraine, it is unlikely to be much of an issue by the end of 2014.

[iv] Another aspect of Cancer is that it is the key sign associated with colonization.  Under the Cancer sub-age decan and overflow (1791-1851-1910) the majority of the world (except North and South America) was colonized, one way or another, by European or Western powers.  Cancer the crab has powerful pincers, whatever it gets its pincers on, it does not like to let go.  Any country strongly associated with Cancer will portray this aspect of Cancer.  China, Russia and France all display this side of Cancer.  Even the UK, with its Cancer heritage, formed the British Commonwealth for its former colonies to keep its position as the ‘mother country’.  Cancer Russia will not readily let go of its new prized possession in the same way China will not let go of Tibet and France its colonies around the world.

The Scorpio Nano-Age Decan & Economic Influences in 2014

The current five year Cancer quasi micro-age decan (2013 to 2017 inclusive) is basically favorable for the economy because Cancer is opposite Capricorn with the obvious negative associations of Capricorn being absent in Cancer.  However, within this overall favorable five year period, there will be ups and downs, and 2014 will probably be associated with a down.

The Cancer quasi micro-age decan (2013 to 2017 inclusive) is based on the Cancer micro-age decan (2010-15), of the Cancer micro-age (2000-15), but due to the wave-like nature of the ages and their sub-periods, the peak time associated with the Cancer micro-age decan (2010-15) is the Cancer quasi micro-age decan (2013-2017).  To fully appreciate ages and their sub-periods, it is absolutely necessary to comprehend the dual nature of the structure.  For example, the world is in the Age of Aquarius (1433-3574 AD) but remains in the Pisces quasi age (352 – 2503 AD) and so we remain in a world with Pisces the dominant paradigm but with Aquarius the dominant emerging influence until 2503 AD.

The Cancer quasi micro-age decan (2013-2017) is influenced by smaller periods within it.  Each micro-age (of approximately 15 years) has twelve nano-ages of approximately 15 months each, with each nano-age comprising three nano-age decans of approximately five months each.  These nano-age decans can still pull a punch with noticeable historical correlations.

In 2014, we are fast approaching a five months Scorpio quasi nano-age decan. However the punch associated with this is much greater compared to the average quasi nano-age decan due to resonance.  All these quasi periods sit above the core structure of the ages and their sub-periods including their respective decans.  The world is currently in the Cancer micro-age decan (2010-2015) but it is also influenced by the Scorpio micro-age decan (2005-10) which then overflows (in a bell curve fashion) into the Cancer micro-age decan (2010-15).  The relevance here is that the five months Scorpio quasi nano-age decan due in 2014 is at the right hand end of the bell curve of the Scorpio micro-age decan and overflow (2005-10-15).  This is the sting in the tail of Scorpio!

Taking into account that the Global Financial Crisis (GFC) closely tracked the Scorpio quasi micro-age decan (2007-12), I expect that the 2014 Scorpio tail sting will temporarily bring back the reality of the GFC but at a lessor scale and limited to about five months.  When is this little Scorpio period due in 2014?

This opens up another relatively unknown area of the astrological ages that few, if any astrologers will be aware of.  Many astrologers know that the precession of the equinoxes moves the Vernal Point (VP) retrograde in the sidereal zodiac one degree in 72 years, but few will have probably taken the trouble to examine the mathematics associated with precession.  The most relevant point to understand is that though precession is around the rate of one degree every 72 years, it is not linear.  Every year, there are two to three periods of approximately one to three months each whereby instead of the VP regressing, it actually moves in the other direction (i.e. forwards in the sidereal zodiac).  Precession works like three steps back followed by two steps forward and so on with an ‘average’ movement of one step back, but in a jerky eccentric fashion.  This is not much of a problem when dealing with ages of some 2,150 year each, but when dealing with five month nano-age decans, it creates chaos in trying to determine their cusps.  To demonstrate this on a macro-scale, I stated in my book on the astrological ages that the Age of Aquarius arrived in 1433 AD, or 1432 with the possibility of it arriving in 1431.  However, since learning the eccentric movement of precession, it appears that the world first entered the Age of Aquarius in 1432, and then returned to the Age of Pisces later in 1432 for a few months and only returning permanently to the Age of Aquarius in 1433.  The question that any astrologer should query here – does the world ‘work’ differently in those periods when precession is in its eccentric forward motion as opposed to its long term retrograde motion?

Due to the confusion associated with the eccentric nature of precession, I have adopted a linear ephemeris that averages all periods and discounts the three steps backwards and two steps forward reality.  In practise, it works well enough.  Based on this approach, the Scorpio nano-age decan and overflow due in 2014 should appear around March and last until December 2014 with the more potent Scorpio quasi nano-age decan running from May until September 2014.  But if it is a month or two out of phase, this is now understandable.  Historically, the five year Cancer quasi micro-age decans appear to be positive overall but display tidal swings.  In the previous Cancer quasi micro-age decan (1957-62) there was a 20% drop in the Dow Jones early in the period, followed by a 75% increase and ending with another 27% drop but with an overall rise for the five years of about 30%.  The Cancer quasi micro-age decan (1902-1907) also displayed a massive tidal swing but with the DJ also significantly higher at the end of its five year period.  The approaching Scorpio quasi micro-age decan (c.April – August 2014) is perfectly situated for one of these low tides.

Leo’s Farewell

A severe heatwave may have killed up to 760 people in England in the past nine days.  Temperatures in parts of the country reached as high as 32 degree Celsius on Thursday – the sixth consecutive day with daytime temperature of over 30 degrees Celsius marking Britain’s longest heatwave in seven years.  The estimated death toll for the first nine days of the heatwave at between 540 and 760 people in England alone but this number of heat-related deaths is expected to double.[1]

Everything in the above is related to Leo, and even the UK has a strong connection to Leo – a strong First World nation with a constitutional monarchy will have Leo significantly involved somewhere.  This English heatwave is a symptom of the current Leo nano-age (c.July 2012 – October 2013).  Whenever heatwaves are involved, Leo is usually the sign in attendance.  In an article Let the Good Times Roll posted on August 19 2012 I stated:

 “With the arrival of Leo, we can also expect rising temperatures as one aspect of the worldwide climate change due to pollution.”

Many readers may remember the heatwaves that struck mainly Europe in the early 2000’s – this was no accident as Leo was particularly strong at that time due to the Leo micro-age decan and overflow (1995 – 2005) within the much larger Leo micro-age and overflow (1985 – 2015).

Until 2015 the world remains influenced by this Leo micro-age overflow.  One of the quirks of the astrological ages (and all sub-periods that are not based on decans), is that towards the end of each sign’s overflow period, there is a resurgence of the sign when it passes over its own sub-period.  The Leo micro-age (1985-2000) commenced with a Cancer nano-age and concluded with a Leo nano-age when Leo is at full strength.  From this point of strength, Leo’s overflow coincides with the Cancer micro-age (2000-15).  The last nano-age in the Cancer micro-age is a Cancer nano-age, but the second last nano-age is a Leo nano-age.  This occurs with all ages and sub-periods in macro-astrology where the period is not based on a decan.

During the whole overflow process (2000-2015) Leo will slowly reduce in influence based on very firm logic.  The Leo micro-age decan and overflow (1995-2005) comes to an end in 2005, and the Leo quasi micro-age concludes c. 2007.  Each of these points represents a reduction in Leo influence.  In opposition to the drawn out and diminishing overflow effect, suddenly near the very end, Leo encounters the Leo nano-age and overflow and experiences a late revival or resurgence.

It was the same effect but on a larger scale that witnessed the pre-Renaissance revival in Italy towards the close of the Aries-Pisces age (732 BCE – 1433 AD) when it encountered the Aries sub-age and overflow (1072-1253-1433).  For the first time since the collapse of the Western Roman Empire, Italy experienced an urban revival and rediscovered much of the works of Ancient Roman and Greek authors which ultimately led to the cultural Renaissance.

The fact that we are seeing heatwave conditions in Europe is a classic symptom of Leo reasserting itself near the end of its overflow period.  These conditions have not been seen for seven years which takes us back to 2006, a year before Leo experienced a significant drop in influence with the end of the Leo quasi micro-age (c.1992-2007).  This suggests that more heatwave conditions should be expected in the Northern Hemisphere summer of 2014 and anywhere in the world until the end of 2014 or early 2015.  With Cancer approaching its own peak towards the end of its micro-age in 2015, we should expect significant water based events to predominate over heat-based events, at least up until the end of the Cancer quasi micro-age (2007-2022).

Sagittarius Nano-Age Decan 2002-03

This is the third part in a series of articles examining Sagittarius nano-age and nano-age decans since 2000.  The purpose of examining these Sagittarius nano-age and decans is to confirm earlier research into Sagittarius micro-ages and micro-age decans and applying the results of this research to the 2013 Sagittarius nano-age decan.  The key dates for the Sagittarius nano-age decan (August 2002 – June 2003) include:

  • Sagittarius nano-age decan: August 2002 – January 2003
  • Sagittarius nano-age decan overflow:  January 2003 – June 2003
  • Sagittarius quasi nano-age decan – November 2002 – March 2003

Previous research has found the following archetypes strongly associated with Sagittarius periods:  flight; economic booms, religion and philosophers, railways (long distanced) and foreign lands.

Economic Booms

In 2002 there was a sharp drop in stock prices across the United States, Canada, Asia, and Europe.  The downhill slide commenced in March 2002 in the Taurus nano-age (May 2001 – August 2002). Dramatic declines occurred in July and September 2002 leading to lows previously reached in 1997 and 1998.  1997 is five years before 2002 and is the size of a micro-age decan – in this case the Leo quasi micro-age decan.  Therefore the economic climate was at a low point when the current Sagittarius period arrived.  The market fall that commenced in 2002 was in reality a correction due to the economic stock market bubble of the period 1995 to 2000 (exactly aligned to the Leo micro-age decan).   The stock market low from this correction was on 9 October 2002, about two months inside the current Sagittarius period.

Dow Jones GFC

However the system I have been using for calibrating the nano-age decans has been based on assuming that precession is linear.  What most astrologers do not realize is that precession at the small scale is similar to ‘three steps forward and two steps backwards’.  In most years, there are two to three periods of one to three months each where precession is not a retrograde movement but a forward movement.  The following table indicates the approximate location of the 2002-3 Sagittarius nano-age decan and overflow (in bold).

Due to the concertina effect at the borders of the smaller periods such as the Sagittarius nano-age decan under investigation, the Sagittarius nano-age decan did not actually arrive until the 13th November 2002 – about one month after the stock market low of 9 October 2002.  From the low of 9 October 2002 until Jan 1 2003 the stock market increased by 14.48% – January 2003 was the peak month for the current Sagittarius period.[1]  Though it cannot be said that the current Sagittarius period experienced a uniform, upswing, it certainly performed very well considering the market low just before the current Sagittarius period commenced..

Flight

The following graph was included in Air Travel & the Sagittarius Nano-age Decan and Overflow (January 2013- October 2013) and clearly depicts the woes experienced by Boeing as it passed through all Sagittarius periods.  Every dip in the red line (portraying the delivery of Boeing 737 series aircraft) is linked to a Sagittarius period.  The 2002 and 2003 production fall aligns with the Sagittarius nano-age decan and overflow (Aug 2002 – June 2003). The production of the Airbus 320 series is not so volatile but it also experienced a production slowdown in 2002.

Airbus versus Boeing

  •   Airbus A320 family deliveries RED
  •   Boeing 737 series deliveries GREEN

The Space Shuttle Columbia disaster occurred in February 2003, when it disintegrated over Texas and Louisiana during re-entry into the Earth’s atmosphere, resulting in the death of all crew members. The Columbia commenced construction in 1975 which was probably aligned to the Sagittarius nano-age decan that was in force for most of the period from mid-May to mid-December 1975.  Columbia’s first flight occurred in April 1981 which is located in the Sagittarius decan of the Sagittarius nano-age (c.April 1980-July 1981). Space crafts are normally aligned with Scorpio and/or Aquarius but the Space Shuttles history indicates an association to Sagittarius and it appears that some spacecraft (perhaps in the form of an airplane)  may archetypally be included with airplanes.

Invasion of Iraq

It must be remembered that the current Sagittarius period is a decan (and overflow) of the Aries nano-age decan (August 2002 – November 2003) and Aries’ war association certainly took the limelight away from Sagittarius.  However the invasion of Iraq in March 2003 does have a Sagittarius connection.  Iraq is the location of ancient Sumer and Akkad – also commonly known as Mesopotamia – the age empire of the Gemini-Taurus age (5122 – 2916 BC) and so the sign Gemini should be permanently attached to the lands formerly known as Mesopotamia.  Sagittarius is opposite Gemini and Iraq was therefore caught in the crossfire of the current Sagittarius period with its innate Gemini signature.

Australia

Sagittarius is also part of the astrological signature for Australia, and Australians wore the brunt of the bombings of nightclubs in Bali in October 2002 when 202 people were killed.  Australia was also newsworthy in January 2003 when a severe fire storm (a fire hurricane) swept into the suburbs of Canberra (Australia’s national capitol) in January 2003.  In both instances involving Australia, the dominant element is Aries.

International Criminal Court

Law courts come under the umbrella of Sagittarius and the inception of the International Criminal Court (ICC) ticks two Sagittarian boxes – courts and international.  Though decreed by the UN in July 2002 (just before the current Sagittarius period), the first 18 judges were not sworn in until March 2003.[2] The US removed itself from the ICC and by May 2002, the Bush Administration “unsigned” the Rome Statute and threatened to use military force if U.S. nationals were held at The Hague.  The US continued to pressure many countries that signed the agreement not to surrender US citizens to the ICC[3] leaving the perception that US citizens are above the (international) law.

Venezuela

Venezuela may be associated with Gemini.[4]  Just prior to the current Sagittarius period, in April 2002, Chávez was briefly ousted from power following popular demonstrations by his opponents,but he was returned to power after two days as a result of popular demonstrations by his supporters and support from the military.However, within the current Sagittarius period, Chávez remained in power after an all-out national strike that lasted more than two months from December 2002 to February 2003, including a strike/lockout in the state oil company.[5] Obviously there was a lot of local dissent against Chavez’s leftist administration and in a Sagittarian period, any Gemini associated nation should be experiencing internal or external conflict.

Conclusion

Again this small Sagittarius nano-age decan demonstrated that it was able to express itself in the hostile environment of its parent – the Aries nano-age.  The stock market rebounded significantly from the low reached a month before Sagittarius arrived.  The production of Boeing’s 737 series aircraft and the Airbus A320 slowed under Sagittarius.  Gemini aligned Iraq was invaded and Sagittarius Australia suffered the Bali bombings and savage bush fires. Gemini aligned Venezuela experienced strong internal dissent.  This suggests that similar events should occur in the 2013 Sagittarius nano-age decan that is in place from December 2012 to August 2013.  There should be some kind of noteworthy flight incident.  Certainly the economic recovery post GFC appears to be in place.

Sagittarius Nano-Ages & Nano-Age Decans Part 2

The purpose of examining this Sagittarius nano-age and overflow (October 2008 – January 2010) is to confirm earlier research into Sagittarius micro-ages and micro-age decans.  This should provide some clarification on the current Sagittarius nano-age decan and overflow in 2013.  The key dates for the Sagittarius nano-age & overflow (July 2007 – January 2010) include:

  • Sagittarius nano-age: July 2007 – October 2008
  • Sagittarius nano-age overflow:  October 2008 – January 2010
  • Sagittarius quasi nano-age – March 2008 – May 2009

In part one, the focus was upon flight.  In this post, the balance of items generally associated with Sagittarian periods is examined.  These include: economic booms, religion and philosophers, railways (long distanced) and foreign lands.

Economic Booms

The most noticeable aspect of this Sagittarius nano-age is the peak of an economic boom or bubble.  The Dow Jones index peaked around October 2008 (as the following graph demonstrates) coinciding with the peak of the Sagittarius nano-age and overflow in October 2008.  The lowest point for the Dow Jones in the period 2000 to 2013 was late in the first quarter of 2009 (in the following Scorpio nano-age) but remaining in the Sagittarius nano-age overflow (October 2008 – January 2010).  Sagittarius is the sign of largesse.   On September 29 2008, the DOW lost 777 points, the biggest one-day point decline ever (see graph[1]).  So even in the contracting Scorpio environment, Sagittarius was still able to archetypally demonstrate its existence with the largest downward move ever experienced to that date.  However the key association to Sagittarius is the market peak around October 2008 in parallel to the peak of the current Sagittarius nano-age.

Before the economic calamity of the GFC struck the world, some examples of Sagittarius are evident.  In December 2007, the US presidential candidate, Ron Paul, set a record by fundraising over $6 million in one day, an event now known as a money-bomb.  The money-bomb may however be more related to the Pisces micro-age decan overflow (2005-10).

 Dow Jones GFC

Railways

In 2007 the second stage of the high speed rail link from London to the Channel Tunnel was opened to passengers.  Section 1 (a 74-km or 46 miles section) of the Channel Tunnel Rail Link was appropriately opened in September 2003 just past the end of the Sagittarius nano-age decan (Aug 2002 to July 2003).  Section 2 of the project opened in November 2007 and is a 39.4 km (24.5 mi) stretch of track from Ebbsfleet station in Kent to London with a maximum speed of 230 km per hour (143 mph).  In December 2009 in China, the Wuhan–Guangzhou Section (968-km or 601 miles) high-speed rail line was opened connecting Wuhan and Guangzhou. It was the world’s fastest train service until speeds were limited in 2011.  In January 2010, the last month of the Sagittarius nano-age and overflow under investigation, the Guangzhou North–Guangzhou South section was opened.  These sections form part of the final Beijing–Guangzhou–Shenzhen–Hong Kong High-Speed Railway.[2]

Religion

The following religious events of significance occurred:

  • October 2007 – The Vatican beatified 498 Spanish victims of religious persecution from before and during the Spanish Civil War.[13]
  • November 2007 – Rambhadracharya, a Hindu religious leader, released the first Braille version of the Bhagavad Gita.
  • January 2008 – Iran’s judiciary sentenced to prison 54 Bahá’í Faith followers for “anti-regime propaganda”.
  • August 2008 – A stampede at a Hindu temple in Himachal Pradesh, India, killed 162 people and injured another 400.
  • September 2008 – Churches are attacked in Mangalore and southern Karnataka, India, leading to Christian protests and strong police suppression.
  • September 2008 – A Jodhpur temple stampede in western India killed over 224 people, and injured 400.

Without an accurate list of beatifications and religious calamities, it is difficult to contextualise the above religious events to periods before and after.  The Braille version of the Bhagavad Gita stands out however. 

Miscellaneous

  • November 2007 – The Writers Guild of America goes on a strike that lasts until February 2008.  Gemini writers in 7th house (opposition) mode venting their anger.
  • June 2008 – After three decades as the Chairman of Microsoft Corporation, Bill Gates stepped down from daily duties to concentrate on (Sagittarius) philanthropy.  Gates was the wealthiest person in the world overall from 1995 to 2009—excluding 2008, when he was ranked third.  As one of the richest man in the world, this also links Gates to Sagittarius.
  • April 2009 – UNESCO launched The World Digital Library.  Libraries are generally linked to Gemini, but some source(s) link libraries to Jupiter – ruler of Sagittarius.   Gemini is more orientated towards fiction.
  • The deadliest bush fires in Australian history in the Australian state of Victoria left 173 people dead and more than 2000 homes destroyed.  Sagittarius is very strong in Australia’s astrological signature.
  • The Death of the King of Pop Michael Jackson in June 2009 brings worldwide outpourings of grief, he is the most successful entertainer of all time. His career began in 1964 as the lead singer and youngest member of The Jackson 5. His 1982 album Thriller remains the best-selling album of all time.  Sagittarius rules all things ‘big’.

Conclusion

The clearest indicator of Sagittarius in this period is the economic peak experienced by the Dow Jones Index around October 2008 at the midway point and peak of the Sagittarius nano-age and overflow (Jul 2007 – Oct 2008 – Jan 2010).  This verges on being awesome.  It is also significant that two sections of the Beijing–Guangzhou–Shenzhen–Hong Kong High-Speed Railway commenced operations in this Sagittarius period.  Bill Gates fulfils the role previously held by philosophers in this Sagittarius period.  This Sagittarius period sits under the shadow of the Scorpio quasi micro-age (2007-12) and so Scorpio will want to bring death and contraction to this Sagittarius period, and the death of Michael Jackson fulfills this.

This suggests that economic conditions should thrive under Sagittarius, especially in its own period (not necessarily in its overflow period).  Some issues related to railways, philanthropy and larger-than-life characters may also appear in these small Sagittarius periods.
