Nano-Age & Nano-Age Decanates

The purpose of this Demystifying the Aquarian Age blog is to present the truth of the astrological ages, including the Age of Aquarius, to the general public and interested astrologers alike. I therefore try to keep the technical aspects associated with the astrological ages to a minimum.  However I have another WordPress blog with a different focus.  The At the Cutting Edge of the Aquarian Age blog is focussed upon the smallest divisions of the astrological ages and how these small divisions correlate to events as they unfold in the world.  For example, the world is moving into the serious part of a Scorpio nano-age decan (May – September 2014), and I discuss economic issues associated with this small five month period in The Scorpio Nano-Age Decan & Economic Influences in 2014.

 What is a nano-age?  An age is approximately 2,150 years in length.  Each age has 12 sub-ages of approximately 179 years each.  Each sub-age has 12 micro-ages of slightly under 15 years each.  My research into these sub-divisions have provided a wealth of correlated historical events that are readily and easily associated with these sub-divisions of the ages. Recently I have been able to further divide the almost 15 years micro-ages into 12 nano-ages of approximately 15 months each.  All ages and sub-divisions also include their respective decanates (decans).  Therefore each nano-age has three nano-age decans.

Unlike traditional horoscopic and mundane astrology, all ages and age sub-divisions behave like waves due to the retrograde nature of the effects of precession of the equinoxes.  When the world entered the Age of Aquarius, it entered the sign of Aquarius from the Pisces side or ‘end’ of Aquarius.  At this point, Pisces is far stronger than Aquarius, and it takes half an age (almost) 1,100 years before Aquarius becomes strong enough to stop standing in the shadow of Pisces.  Here is an extract from The Dawning:

In the same way that each zodiacal sign has decans, each astrological age also has age decans. If the average age is 2,150 years long, each age decan averages 720 years. If we examine the decans of the zodiacal signs Pisces and Aquarius in order, the three decans of Pisces are Pisces, Cancer, and Scorpio, and the three decans of Aquarius are Aquarius, Gemini, and Libra. But the decans of these two signs cannot simply be applied to the ages in the same way as they are applied to zodiacal signs. Age decans cannot be arranged the same way as they occur within the zodiacal signs due to the retrograde nature of the ages. Normally Pisces follows Aquarius as Pisces is the twelfth sign and Aquarius is the eleventh sign. Due to the nature of the precession of the equinoxes, the zodiacal constellations move in the opposite direction to the daily and annual movement of the ecliptic. If the usual order of the three decans of Pisces is Pisces, Cancer, and Scorpio, when applied to the ages these must be reversed. Therefore the correct chronological order of the age decans encountered in the Pisces age is Scorpio, Cancer, and Pisces, followed by Libra, Gemini, and Aquarius age decans belonging to the Aquarian age. The reversal of age subperiods such as the decan example is termed the geometric application of subperiods.[1] The geometric application of subperiods is not common. Though some astrologers do use them, the greater majority do not. However, on both theoretical grounds and empirical evidence, the subperiods of ages are always retrograde.

Applying the geometric application of decans to the Pisces age, it will therefore commence with the Scorpio age decan, then move to the Cancer age decan, and finish with the Pisces age decan. Very simply, this means that Pisces is stronger at the last third of the Pisces age as it has the assistance of the Pisces age decan. This situation is replicated in all the astrological ages. As a result, all ages are stronger at their ends compared to their beginnings. Consequently, at the end of the Pisces age in 1433 CE, Pisces had built up an allegorical tsunami, and it was not simply going to disappear in the following year (i.e.,1434 CE). The age decans support ages being stronger at their end and contributes to the overflow effect. The influence of the Pisces age will continue well into the Aquarian age but not vice versa. There is no reason for the influence of the Aquarian age to occur before its appointed time.

Therefore each age or any sub-division whatsoever builds up its strength in its period (proper), then disperses like a tsunami over the following period (while the following period is building its strength).  The crossover point is found at the midway mark.  Therefore hallway through the current Aquarian age, the energy of Aquarius has built up to such a strength, that it now equals the (falling) strength of the overflow from the Pisces age.

Applying the overflow effect to 15 month nano-ages and five month nano-age decans produces quasi-nano ages and quasi nano-age decans that show the peak period of influence for the zodiacal sign in question.  In May the world should (or could) move into a five month Scorpio nano-age.  The indeterminacy with the cusp of nano-age decans (and all periods) occurs because though precession occurs at the rate of one degree retrograde every 72 years, it is not linear and behaves as if it goes two steps back and one step forward for an average on one step back.  Each year, there are two to three period of one to three months each where instead of precession moving in its overall retrograde direction, it actually goes forward instead.  This creates havoc in trying to calculate when exactly each five month quasi nano-age decan starts and  end due to the concertina effect of the precessional movement.

I have recently posted at The Cutting Edge of the Aquarian Age a post: Ukraine & the Pisces Nano-Age Decan & Overflow – if you are interested in following the small five month nano-age decans and fifteen month nano-ages, I would recommend you either note the other blog and join it so as to get updated whenever I post a new blog.


[1] The geometric application of age decans to ages has a sound basis. Aquarius is assigned 300 to 330 degrees of the ecliptic. The Libra decan of Aquarius is assigned the last ten degrees of Aquarius (i.e., 320–330 degrees). The last degree encountered in the Pisces age is 330 degrees, and with the retrograde movement of the ages, it then moves to 329 degrees, 50 minutes and 59 seconds at the beginning of the Aquarian age. This is the Libra age decan as the Libra decan of Aquarius is 320–330 degrees. Basic theory indicates that the subperiods of ages must also travel “backward” as do their parent ages
