The Scorpio-Cancer Micro-Age Decan (2010-15)

Some incidents in recent weeks have again highlighted the strength of Scorpio associated events in the world.  Technically the world moved from the Scorpio quasi micro-age decan to the Cancer quasi micro-age decan around July 2012.  Quasi-ages have their uses – but the shift from the Scorpio quasi micro-age decan to the Cancer quasi micro-age decan in 2012 does not mean that Scorpios’ days are over.  To understand the true relationship of the transition from Scorpio to Cancer it is necessary to go back to basic principles.

The Cancer micro-age (2000-15) has three micro-age decans:

  1. Pisces micro-age decan (2000-05)
  2. Scorpio micro-age decan (2005-10)
  3. Cancer micro-age decan (2010-15)

Any reader familiar with macro-astrology will know that every period associated with the astrological ages can be effectively doubled due to the overflow effect where the energy of the period builds to a crescendo towards the end of its period – which then overflows like a tsunami onto the following period.  The overflow effect is significant with the astrological ages due to its retrograde nature.  Each zodiacal sign is traditionally strongest at its beginning (i.e. the first decan of each sign is the same as the sign whereas the other two decans are of the same element but different signs).  Due to the retrograde motion, the decans of each sign are also reversed so the high point of any period associated with the astrological ages is at its end.  This reality is definitely not the norm in traditional horoscopic astrology.

If we take the Scorpio micro-age decan (2005-10) it will overflow onto the Cancer micro-age decan (2010-15).  Therefore the full scope of the Scorpio micro-age decan and overflow is 2005 to 2015.  However all periods are not homogenous – each period has a similarity to the four quarters of the lunar cycle.  The quarters are found by combining the quasi-period with the period proper plus overflow period.  The quasi-period is always the last half of the period proper plus the first half of the overflow period.  Therefore the Scorpio quasi micro-age decan is 2007-12.

As an example, the four quarters of the Scorpio micro-age decan and overflow (2005-15) are:

  1. 2005-7 (this is the weakest quarter for Scorpio)
  2. 2007-10 (this is stronger than quarter 1)
  3. 2010-12 (this is stronger than quarter 2 and probably the strongest of all quarters)
  4. 2012-15 (things may begin to weaken off, but this quarter is most likely stronger than quarter 2 (possibly between quarter 2 and 3 in strength).

The Scorpio micro-age decan and overflow (2005-15) is at Stage 4 (2012-15) while Cancer is at Stage 2 – and thus we have the opportunity to observe their relative strengths.  Depending upon the stage and circumstance, we can use the actual period, quasi-period or overflow period that produces the above four stages.  However my original nomenclature system based on pair-signs remains relevant. 2010 to 2015 can also be viewed as the Scorpio-Cancer micro-age decan. In the Scorpio-Cancer micro-age decan we can expect significant Scorpio events and a growing number of Cancer events.  This has definitely occurred over the last few weeks.

The recent major Scorpio events include: the whistle-blower who reported to the world the existence and extent of the US government spy grid; the sudden public explosion in Turkey against its democratic but autocratic-leaning government; and the Canadian government minister telling the world to get real about the existence of UFOs. Each of these three international newsworthy items has strong Scorpio underpinnings.  Cancer is also represented but at a less obvious level which may be part of Cancer’s shy archetype.

SCORPIO

Spy-grid

The US web based spy-grid is classic Scorpio as everything to do with espionage and secret activities are a Scorpio archetype. Furthermore this has occurred in a Leo nano-age (Jul 2012 – Oct 2014) and either at the end or near the end of the Sagittarius nano-age decan (Dec 2012 – May 2013).  Leo is anti-Aquarius and thus anti-democratic.  Sagittarius is anti-Gemini or located at the 7th house position to Gemini.  This anti-Gemini nature associated with the Sagittarius nano-age decan is enhanced by the current Gemini sub-age decan (1970-2029) where all communication mediums are highly promoted.  This US spy-grid ticks a lot of boxes in 2013.  The whistle-blower is hiding out in Hong Kong (at the time of this article) and may seek refuge from the US government in (Cancer) China.  Even the whistle-blower is behaving like a crab.

Turkey

The widespread public demonstrations against the Turkish government is classic Scorpio and follows the pattern set by Libya, Egypt, Syria and so on but with two significant differences.  Firstly Turkey is already a democratic nation (supposedly) and this public ‘insurrection’ is much later than the other Middle Eastern uprisings.  In fact, the current Leo nano-age and overflow is a difficult period for insurrections in general – as has been recently experienced in Syria – where the rebels have commenced retreating from government forces and allied militias.  Leo periods always favour existing governments and leaders as Leo’s opposite sign Aquarius favors rebels.  Turkey however has Aquarius significantly placed in its astrological signature so in any Leo period, Leo activates its 7th house of opposition.  The opposition has come out onto the streets of cities in Turkey!  Any country with Aquarius in its signature will tend to be out of synch with its neighbors.

UFOs

In June 2013 Paul Hellyer, Canada’s former defence minister, provided testimony at the 2013 Citizen Disclosure Hearing in Washington DC of the existence of  ET’s and UFOs, and that governments have known about their existence for many years – and even familiar with multiple races of ETs.  From an astrological perspective it is irrelevant about the authenticity of this claims, UFOs and ETs have Scorpio at the very top of their astrological totem pole.

 Miscellaneous Scorpio

A number of other events strongly associated with Scorpio have occurred in 2013 to date.  In fact, when examining the topic ‘2013’ in Wikipedia[1] the great majority of items had strong Scorpio associations.  In the period January to May 2013 there were 14 events listed of which only three events had no simple connection to Scorpio.  Some of the Scorpio events include:

  • February – the first modern resignation of a pope in the (Scorpio) Roman Catholic Church
  • February – the most powerful meteor to strike Earth’s atmosphere in over a century over the Russian city of Chelyabinsk, injuring 1,491 people and damaging over 4,300 buildings
  • March – Jorge Mario Bergoglio is elected the 266th pope.  In a significant break with tradition (Taurus opposite Scorpio) he is the first Jesuit pope, the first pope from the Americas, and the first pope from the Southern Hemisphere.
  • March – The European Union agree to €10 billion (Scorpio) bailout for Cyprus. The deal precipitates a (Taurus) banking crisis in the island nation.
  • April – Two bombs exploded at the Boston Marathon (domestic terrorism – Scorpio)
  • April – An eight-story commercial building collapsed near the Bangladeshi capital of Dhaka, resulting 1,127 deaths and 2,500 injured. The accident is the world’s deadliest (Taurus) structural collapse and the third worst industrial disaster in history.
  • May – Oregon Health & Science University researchers report of the first creation of an human embryonic stem cells by cloning

In addition to the above, obtained from Wikipedia, in June 2013 the US Supreme Court ruled that naturally occurring human genes cannot be patented. Just because a gene can be isolated is not a reason it should be patented. South Africa went into its first death-watch on Nelson Mandala in June 2013.  Also later in 2013, the Megatons to Megawatts Program between the Russian Federation and the United States is expected to expire. The program that implemented the 1993 United States-Russia non-proliferation agreement to convert high-enriched uranium taken from dismantled Russian nuclear weapons into low-enriched-uranium for nuclear fuel.  Completion of the Megatons to Megawatts agreement may leave a gap in the supply of uranium fuel at a time when the global use of nuclear power is increasing.  Other sources of uranium supply will be necessary to meet current and future demand but the world has abundant uranium reserves.[2]

CANCER

One of the key archetypes associated with Cancer is ‘contained water’ which includes canals.  In mid-2013 Nicaragua announced its intention to construct a canal to rival the existing Panama Canal using (Cancer) Chinese funds.  The construction of both the Suez and Panama canals were associated with the powerful 59 years Cancer sub-age decan overflow (1851-1910) of the Scorpio sub-age (1791-1970).

A recent news item on TV caught my attention when it stated that the list of current shipping disasters is increasing.  Excluding people falling overboard and on-board rapes, a number of shipping disasters have occurred as Cancer grows in strength.  The sinking of the Costa Concordia in 2012 was a classic.  Two years earlier, at the very beginning of the Cancer micro-age decan, the Carnival Splendor, the little sister to Costa Concordia, was on a seven-day cruise to Mexico when its engine room caught fire in November 2010, causing passengers to cope with unflushed toilets, bags of vomit and only Spam to eat.  The company that owns both ships was formed in 1854 in a Cancer micro-age overflow (1851-66). One of Australia’s richest businessmen has announced plans to construct Titanic II at an estimated cost of $500 million and a completion date of 2016.  It is to be built in China and is to duplicate as much as possible the original Titanic.  Even in this (Cancer) story Scorpio ‘resurrection’ is included.

Angelina Jolie had a double mastectomy as a preventative measure when it was discovered that she had a gene mutation that results in high rates of breast cancer.  This is (Scorpio) genes combined with (Cancer) breasts and the (Cancer) disease – cancer.

The space program of the People’s Republic of China will attempt its first unmanned Moon landing possibly in late 2013.

European floods

In June 2013 widespread flooding inundated several parts of central Europe.  In Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the Czech Republic, rivers and lakes have flooded after extended periods of heavy rain.  The multi-billion dollar flood disaster has killed at least eighteen people in Central Europe after record flooding unprecedented since the Middle Ages hit major rivers in Austria, the Czech Republic, Germany, Poland and Slovakia over a two week period. The Danube River in Passau, Germany hit the highest level since 1501, and the Saale River in Halle, Germany was the highest in its 400-year period of record.  Prior to the late May rains, Austria had its seventh wettest spring in 150 years, which had resulted in the ground in the region becoming saturated, leading to greater runoff when the rains began.  This was not a ‘normal’ flood.[3]

Conclusion

The same items in the Wikipedia topic ‘2013’ that displayed 14 events with 11 easily aligned to Scorpio had seven of these items aligned to Cancer – many items were aligned jointly to Scorpio and Cancer reflecting the current Scorpio-Cancer micro-age decan.  It is expected that as the world approaches 2015 the Cancer items will proportionally increase. Both Scorpio and Cancer appear strong in 2013 and it is difficult to state explicitly which one may be stronger.

Water Woes Will Replace Global Warming

The astrology of the Aquarian age strongly supports the reality of progressive adverse affects upon earth from climate change at this section of the age.  However while the scientists claim the major problem is global warming, the astrology of the Aquarian age does not agree.  The astrology of the Aquarian age indicates that as the earth’s atmosphere is contaminated and polluted at an alarming rate over the foreseeable future, different symptoms will be expressed.  Global warming is just the first of many symptoms. 

 

At present the world is in the Aquarian age (c.1433 – 3574), but each age has 12 sub-ages of approximately 178 years each, and each of the 12 sub-ages has 12 micro-ages of approximately 15 years each.  The world is currently in transition from the Leo micro-age to Cancer micro-age.  Global warming arrived first as a contentious idea then as a more certifiable scientific fact under the influence of Leo.  This conforms to the fact that the sign Leo is ruled by the hot sun and is a Fire sign (along with Aries and Sagittarius) so it makes sense that in a Leo period, concerns and symptoms of global warming are paramount.  In this transition time as Leo wanes and Cancer waxes, the importance of global warming will also wane while the water woes in the world will grow.

Cancer is a Water sign (along with Scorpio and Pisces).  Cancer rules homes and real estate.  The current global financial crisis was precipitated by the sub-prime real estate fiasco where countless bonds based on almost worthless real estate lost most or all of their value sending banks, finance and insurance companies to the brink of collapse if not for government bailouts.  Cancer rules more than homes and real estate – many issues related to water are also ruled by Cancer.  Other key water items associated with Cancer are: water supply, dams, canals, and riparian corridors and shipping disasters.

 

In this transition time however Cancer is still growing in strength and will not come out in full glory sometime around 2012 or 2013 – but will have a strong impact until 2022, with a residual influence until about 2029.  The Cancer micro-age will divert the attention from global warming to water woes.  This is already occurring.  The 2005 flooding of New Orleans is a classic example of Cancer as when the levies broke, New Orleans was flooded.  On March 26 2009 a state of emergency was declared in Minnesota crippled by flooding in icy conditions at much the same time as a dam collapsed in Indonesia killing many thousands of people as villages were washed away.

 

Further evidence of widespread water problems can be found in all directions.  For example where I live in Queensland, Australia, the state government has recently constructed a sewerage recycling plant which basically purifies ‘toilet water’ and pours the purified water back into the dam that supplies the states capital city.  Other cities in Australia are building desalination plants to convert sea water to drinking water.  Australia’s major river system (equivalent to the Mississippi River in the USA) is in dire straights due to lack of water flowing in the river system – in many areas it is just a series of mud puddles. 

 

landzhou_07-2005China in 2009 announced drastic plans to cut water usage by its industry and agriculture by 60% by 2020 following its worst drought in 50 years.  This drought is compounded by the rivers that are so polluted the water cannot even be treated effectively (1).  China interestingly has more dams than any other country (China and dams are ruled by Cancer), and the recent earthquake in Sichuan that killed 70,000 people is also the location of the greatest concentration of dams in China.  Many of these dams were damaged.  Three decades ago a dam collapsed in China killing 80,000 people.  The frightening possibility is that as more dams are built in China, the likelihood some will collapse with significant deaths and damage will increase (2).

 

California declared a state of emergency in early 2009 as below average rainfall and snowfall has caused a major drought (3).  The United Nations has warned that by 2025 a third of the world may be scavenging for safe drinking water.  Places like Mexico City, Jakarta and Bangkok are depleting their non-renewable underground water sources at alarming rates.  Beijing’s aquifers now must go down an extra 40 feet to find water for the city.  Similar alarming situations are developing in India and Israel(4).

Some unresolved issues about the allocation of water between different countries may exacerbate political tensions as many rivers pass through or border multiple countries.  This is the case with the Nile in Egypt, Tigris and Euphrates rivers in Turkey, Syria and Iraq and the Colorado River in the Southwestern United States.  Five of the 10 fastest-growing U.S. states are on the Colorado River’s catchment and consequently only a trickle of water arrives in Mexico.  Other shared rivers include the Amur River between Russia and China, the African Niger River plus the Mekong in South-East Asia, and Indus and Ganges in Asia(5).

 

We are at very early days for Cancer and the water problems that will be associated with Cancer.  No matter how dire and detrimental any damage or problems caused by excess water or drought over the coming two decades will be, this will not be the final or greatest problematical symptom of climate change.  The sign that follows Cancer is Gemini, and it will be three times more powerful than Cancer. 

 

The fault with current predictions of climate change and global warming is that most scientists extrapolate current trends into the future in a straight line or following a fixed projection from the present data trends.  The earth is under great stress, and as more and more pollutants are injected into the finite atmosphere, many new symptoms will appear that were not originally factored into the equations.  The astrology says that climate change will first foist global warming onto the world, then move on to water problems from too much or too little water, then move onto the even more serious issue of the quality of the air we breathe.  It will not stop at air quality as it will keep moving – it may even lead to destructive global cooling in the last quarter of the 21st century.

 

However I am an optimistic pessimist, I am not a doom and gloom merchant.  There are some very positive sides to Cancer.  It will promote the role of women, reduce the impact of iconoclastic authoritarian figures that believe they have the right to tell other people how to act and behave, increase the sensitivity or diplomacy between nations and increase the joy of day-to-day life.  Every cloud has a silver lining!
