Israel versus USA (or the Conflict of the Two Goats)

In “On the Threshold of Aquarius” published on January 4, 2015 I provided an outline of the current 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).  This will be the most potent period of Aquarius experienced by Baby Boomers and younger generations.  Many issues were discussed but the one I am commenting about here is where I stated:

“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.  The Jews do not resonate well with Aquarius.  Aquarius is the traditional ruler of the Arabs.”

The problems for Israel in this Aquarius period are not limited to the perennial conflicts with Palestinians and antagonistic Middle Eastern countries.  The Wall Street Journal[i] recently reported that following the electoral win of Netanyahu’s bloc of hard right political parties, Israel risks losing the cover provided to Israel by the USA in the United Nations due to Netanyahu’s late electoral strategy of publicly opposing a separate Palestinian state, at odds with the UN and USA’s positions on a two state solution.  Basically the hard right of Israel is in opposition to the Democratic Party in the USA, but Obama is a Democratic president, and so Israel has politically attacked America, its greatest protector.  This is like cutting the branch you are sitting on. This does not bode well for Israel.

For those readers not familiar with periods used in macro-astrology, you may find your understanding significantly increases if you first read Age of Aquarius for Dummies.  The beginning of the Aquarius micro-age decan (December 2014-December 2019) commences with a Capricorn nano-age decan (Dec 2014 – May 2015) followed by the Capricorn nano-age decan overflow (May – Oct 2015) with the peak of this small Capricorn bell-curve (Mar to August 2015) which technically is called the Capricorn quasi nano-age.[ii]  Capricorn favors conservatives.  It certainly has favored the conservative bloc in Israel in the March 2015 election, and is also temporarily favoring the conservative Republicans in the USA who now control Congress.  Capricorn is the third most influential sign in the USA, and Capricorn is almost certainly associated with Judaism[iii] and thus Israel.  Therefore we can expect the USA and Israel to start behaving like head butting goats as one tries for supremacy over the other.  It is extremely doubtful that Israel will win in this conflict.

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.

This Time Last Age

Very few people realize that sitting here in the modern world in 2008 that we exist within the Age of Aquarius, the sub-age of Libra (there are twelve sub-ages in every age), and eight years within the Cancer micro-age (there are twelve micro-ages in every sub-age – think of wheels within wheels within wheels). If we go back to the last age, the Pisces age, and also search for its sub-age of Libra, and eight years within its Cancer micro-age – we arrive at the year 27 AD.  What was happening around 27 AD?

From the top down this was only three years before the execution of the Christian Messiah – Jesus Christ.  But this must be put into perspective.  The death of Jesus at the time had no impact upon the world outside of his family, very small band of followers and agitated opponents in Jerusalem – an unimportant distant outpost in the Roman Empire.  Think of some local in modern Croatia, Bulgaria or Outer Mongolia being killed by a small mob of angry townsfolk – it would not even appear as a blip on the radar screen of modern media.

Therefore if ages regurgitated events along a similar timescale as previous ages, anyone in the world today fulfilling the role of Jesus would be unknown, out of the public eye, and their death would go as unnoticed as did the death of Jesus in the year 30.  Nevertheless at the time of Jesus’ death, akin to our year 2011, a very specific astrological signature was present.  This signature is based on the signs Scorpio and Pisces.

Since the late 1960s, Scorpio has been the key sign within the Age of Aquarius, and will remain in this powerful position until midway through the next century when Libra takes over.  Whenever a smaller Scorpio period arrives within this major Scorpio period the results are magnified.  At the same period in the last age, the most powerful time for Scorpio was 29 – 34 AD while in this age a similar status exists from 2010 to 2015.

How is Scorpio related to Jesus?  Most astrologers relate the sign Pisces to Christianity and Jesus due to the symbol of fish used by early Christians and various analogies to fish in the stories, parables and life of Jesus.  However very little in astrology is the preserve of only one zodiacal sign despite the confidence trick played onto the general public by sun-sign astrological columns in newspapers and magazines.  Scorpio takes rulership of death, rebirth, regeneration and inner experiences.  All these Scorpio trademarks are closely associated with Jesus.  Jesus and Christianity at the early stage was an amalgam of Pisces and Scorpio.

The critical issue at the death of Jesus from a predictive astrological context is the conflict and discord that was created in this small Jewish settlement by the new Christian/Jewish cult.  One of the key signs associated with Jews is the sign Taurus.  Coincidentally the signs Taurus and Scorpio are opposite.  What this means for Jews is that a Scorpio period created dissension within and without.  Enemies are at their throats (i.e. the Roman Empire) and dissension exists within with new cults (i.e. Christianity among others).

Taking a leaf out of the Scorpio period 29 – 34 AD the same stress and pressures should be expected by Jews and Israel in the period 2010 to 2015 (even 2009).  Jewish interests around the world and Israel in particular can expect to have to deal with the enemy without, and possibly dissension within.  The last time Israel encountered a powerful Scorpio time was from 1962 to 1978 – the peak of Scorpio power from the end of the Scorpio sub-age.  During this time Israel had to deal with the 1967 Six-Day War, the 1972 Munich Olympic Games hostages and deaths, and the 1973 Yom Kippur War amongst a medley of attacks by the PLO and related groups.  Another potent Scorpio time is on the way for Israel.

Will Israel attack Iran, or will Iran attack Israel?  Will Hamas deal a mighty blow against Israel or will Israel drive Hamas out of Gaza?  The details are uncertain, but what is sure from the astrological age’s standpoint, the aggressor is not favored (see Will There be Peace in the Age of Aquarius?).  Alternatively or additionally it is possible that the hawks and doves within Israel may be at odds with each other and that internal dissension is the order of the day.

Another interesting development occurred in Rome in the former Scorpio period when in the year 33 the Roman Emperor Tiberius founded a credit bank offering interest-free loans to offset a severe financial crisis. Real estate values plummeted, and interest rates increased leading to a crisis of confidence severely affecting the upper classes and wealthy.  Many wealthy Roman families were ruined by this credit crunch.  Sounds familiar?

The year 33 is akin to our 2014.  Scorpio is rarely a good sign for banks, money, wealth and the wealthy as they are ruled by Taurus – Scorpio’s opposite sign.

The recent sub-prime and banking crisis originating in the USA may be the preview for a more serious banking and financial crises that may hit between 2010 and 2015.  The Roman experience supports this.

One final note on this time last age.  The current Cancer micro-age affects 2000 – 2019 while the former Cancer micro-age one age ago affected the years 19 to 49 AD.  This period covered the Roman Emperors Tiberius (reign 14-37) and Caligula (reign 37-41).  Tiberius was depressed, reserved and “the gloomiest of men”.   Caligula was considered an insane tyrant who was cruel, extravagant and sexually perverse.  The next insane Roman emperor was Nero but he came later.  The relationship between these mentally troubled Roman emperors and Cancer is that Cancer is one of the key signs that indicate insanity, lunacy and depression.

It is extremely possible and probable that in our modern Cancer period covering 2000 – 2019 that some significant world leader or leaders will also be insane or severely depressed.  Time magazine recently reported that huge numbers of US soldiers in Iraq are being given anti-depressants – the seeds of Cancer are being sown!  This reflects the massive number of people in Western societies taking anti-depressants.    Certainly there has been a spate of shootings by mentally troubled people in recent times.  However the world has not even arrived at the strong point for Cancer yet.

The likelihood of adverse mental health issues affecting the world today is far greater than in the last age because Aquarius is another sign that indicates mental problems.  Aquarius plus Cancer equals a double whammy.  The worst time in the period 2000 -29 for mental health issues to negatively affect the world is the period 2015 – 20 but the tempo is quickening every year from 2007 to 2015.  Hopefully one of these depressed or mentally deranged people will not have their finger on the big button.  The mad Roman Emperors could murder and create havoc but they did not have access to atomic weapons that can create so much misery.
