On the Threshold of Aquarius

If you have been following this blog you may be slightly confused by a statement suggesting that we are on the threshold of Aquarius when the Aquarian age arrived many centuries ago.  However since the arrival of the Aquarian age in 1433 AD, no period stronger than a 15 year Aquarius micro-age[1] has been encountered.  The last Aquarius micro-age was 1910-1925 with its overflow extending until 1940, and its momentum extending until 1945.  Therefore anyone born after the 2nd World War, which includes all Baby Boomers, has never encountered, nor experienced, a serious period of Aquarius.  The most that has been experienced are small 15 month Aquarius nano-ages.[2]   The last Aquarius nano-age was from around January 2005 until April 2006 with its overflow period extending until July 2007.

Though relatively minor, some Aquarius associated events (i.e. democracy and fascism,[3] people power, progressive politicians, flight, IT technology etc.) that occurred in the recent 2005 to 2007 Aquarius nano-age and overflow include:

  • The first free Parliamentary elections in Iraq since 1958
  • Saudi Arabia held its first ever municipal elections (for male citizens only)
  • Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak asked Parliament to amend the constitution to allow multi-candidate presidential elections
  • Tabaré Vázquez was sworn in as the first President of Uruguay from a leftist party
  • 800,000 people gathered for an opposition rally in Beirut, a month after the death of former Prime Minister Rafic Hariri. It is the largest rally in Lebanon’s history.
  • The Tulip Revolution in Kyrgyzstan reached its climax with the overthrow of president Askar Akayev
  • The Taiwanese government called on 1 million Taiwanese to demonstrate in opposition to the Anti-Secession Law of the People’s Republic of China. Between 200,000 and 300,000 attend the walk.
  • The Airbus A380 made its first flight
  • Kuwaiti women were re-granted the right to vote
  • Violent anti-G8 demonstrations occurred in Gleneagles, Scotland
  • The 2005 French riots began after two young immigrants die while hiding from the police
  • 2006 – The UN voted overwhelmingly to establish the UN Human Rights Council
  • Twitter (the popular social-networking service) was founded
  • A scramjet jet engine, designed to fly at 7 times the speed of sound, was successfully tested
  • Montenegro declared independence after a 2006 referendum
  • The International Astronomical Union redefined ‘planet’, demoting Pluto to the status of ‘dwarf planet’
  • The Royal Thai Army staged a coup d’état removing the democratically elected Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra from power.
  • The former Soviet republic of South Ossetia held a referendum on independence from Georgia
  • Al Jazeera English was launched
  • The military seized power in Fiji against a democratically elected prime minister
  • Steve Jobs, announced the first generation iPhone
  • The President of Ukraine dissolved parliament, following defections that increased the majority of his opponents.
  • Ethnic Russians rioted in Estonia, about moving a Soviet World War II memorial – two of the worst nights of rioting in Estonian history.
  • Live Earth Concerts were held throughout nine major cities around the world. [4] [5] [6]

Each of the above newsworthy items[7] has a strong association with Aquarius but the whole period was under the sway of a Pisces micro-age overflow (2005-2010) and so this little Aquarius nano-age period is limited in what it can do.  However, from around December 2014, this is no longer the case as the world has moved from a Cancer micro-age (2000-December 2014) to a Gemini micro-age (Dec 2014 – Nov 2029).  Dividing this new Gemini period into its three decans finds the first micro-age decan encountered is the Aquarius micro-age decan (December 2014-December 2019) and its overflow the following five years with its most powerful time the Aquarius quasi micro-age decan (Jun 2016 – Jun 2022).  Even though the Aquarius micro-age decan commencing around December 2014 is at its absolute weakest strength, we should relatively quickly find one or more examples of Aquarius (and Gemini) flexing their new-found muscles.  Relatively quickly means the next 24 months.

Established archetypes associated with Aquarius include: sudden or unexpected developments; electricity; eccentricity; dictators and tyrants (reactionary politicians), all freedom–loving archetypes such as all forms of independence, freedom and equality, new teachings, liberty and fraternity, and a more secular, free thinking liberal view of the world (the modern liberal democratic political system), humanitarianism, ideals, reformers, non–profit and altruistic organizations, socialism, revolutions and revolutionaries, radicals, rebels, and extremists, plus civic responsibility, schizophrenics and mental diseases, fringe dwellers, different or abnormal behavior, astrology, astronomy, explorers and anything exciting or bizarre. Anything new including modernity, fresh developments especially in the scientific, mechanical and electrical fields, concepts and views of the future, the avant–garde, unique developments, and science fiction (with Pisces). Finally Aquarius does everything quickly, like a bolt of lightning or with unprecedented speed.

Russia and possibly Germany appear to benefit under Aquarius.  Russia’s eccentric and erratic nature is its link to Aquarius plus the Russians spearheaded the anti-establishment worldwide communist revolution in the early 20th century. Germany’s link to Aquarius is from its technical exceptionalism, historical associations with totalitarian leaders and its avant garde currently manifesting as pro-green and pro-environment.  Naturally the Green Party anywhere has strong Aquarius credentials.  Aquarius is the second strongest sign in the signature for the USA but sublimated by Pisces, its strongest sign.  The USA rose to its status of the leading world power under the Pisces sub-age and overflow (1851-1910-1970) resulting in a distorted or stressed relationship between the USA and Aquarius, because though the USA ostensibly promotes Aquarian freedom and democracy, it really promotes free trade for its (Pisces) corporations and democratic jingoism to mask the reality that everything is set up for business and the wealthy.  A focus upon Aquarius is therefore stressful for the USA (the Great Depression occurred in the last Aquarius micro-age overflow) and the USA has always had trouble with people power and left wing politics. Aquarius is associated with world government[8] which therefore includes anything associated with the UN, G8, G20 etc.

Not only should we experience Aquarius and Gemini making a greater impact in the world, we should also see examples of their opposite signs (Leo and Sagittarius) in retreat or being subjugated.  One minor example of this in the previous nano-age and overflow period was the regal (Leo) marriage of Price Charles to Camilla Parker Bowles at a mere civil ceremony in April 2005 with the general public still pining for their idol, Princess Diana.  Therefore Leo (and Sagittarius) archetypes are under threat in the coming period.  Other Leo archetypes include the United Kingdom, Paris (and France), gold, heat, mainstream societal values, all forms of amusements, games, bright colors (South America), stained glass, bees and the color yellow. Moses is also closely associated with Leo indicating a connection to Judaism and thus we can expect much conflict in Israel, and the Occupied Territories over the coming decade.[9]  The Jews do not resonate well with Aquarius.  Aquarius is the traditional ruler of the Arabs.

The end of the Gemini micro-age in 2029 marks the end of the 59 year Gemini sub-age decan (1970-2029) and the beginning of the major Aquarius sub-age decan and overflow (2029-2089-2148).  Though the current Aquarius micro-age decan and overflow under investigation is not on the same scale nor included within the approaching major Aquarius sub-age decan and overflow, research on previous sub-age decans indicates that the current Aquarius micro-age decan and overflow (2014-2019-2024) is a preview of the coming Aquarius maelstrom and some seeds developed in the Aquarius micro-age decan period will flourish in the coming Aquarius sub-age decan.  On the economic front, the new Aquarius sub-age decan and overflow should put an end to the excessive share (stock) values generated by the long term bull market that commenced in the Leo micro-age (1985-2000) though the real punch is unlikely to be experienced until around 2021 at the apex of the Aquarius micro-age decan and overflow bell-curve.

In addition to the arrival of the Aquarius micro-age decan, between December 2014 and 2029 a very special event takes place that has not occurred since 5122 BC.  Until 5122 BC (in the Gemini age), the world was the closest in temperament to the society still being shaped by mankind in today’s Aquarian age in the 21st century.  From around December 2014, for the first time in over 7,000 years the world will be passing through an age, sub-age and micro-age that all aligned with Water and Air – with no Fire or Earth in sight.  This occurrence will occur nine times in the Aquarian age, with the first three occurring between 2014 and 2148.  What can be expected in the period 2014 to 2029 – the first of nine such periods in the Aquarian age?  We can expect great instability, but also progress – one way or another.  Though doom and gloom pundits may predict a 3rd World War I don’t think this is a possibility as astrologically the world is turning away from war. Climate change is the real issue!   (Details can be found at A Celebration 7,000 Years in the Making )

While the Aquarius micro-age decan is on our doorstep (as of December 2014), the major player on the micro-age decan and micro-age level remains Cancer as the Cancer micro-age (2000 – Dec 2014) is at its apex and entering its most powerful quarter in its overflow period lasting until around June 2022.  For more details on the role of Cancer in the world today, see Cancer – the New Paradigm for the World

As breaking news identifies developments of an Aquarian nature, I will add them to the end of this post or as comments on this post.

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.
