December 2019 witnessed the arrival of the Libra micro-age decan (Dec 2019 – Nov 2024), and it is now making itself felt in Australia – and some would say with a vengeance, as Libra rules justice and women amongst other archetypes. Historical research shows that when Libra is strong, that there is a greater than average focus upon women, for better or worse, and a push for justice.
The female focus is not always positive, as the examination of previous similar Libra periods, since the arrival of the Age of Aquarius in the 15th century, indicates that the level of persecution against females reached new heights – especially in the early centuries of the Age of Aquarius when many governments passed laws against witches who were usually just mature intelligent women. This mainly occurred under the dark auspices of the Capricorn sub-age and overflow (1433 – 1612 – 1791) when Satan allegorically took control or highly influenced many institutions including religions. In the following centuries, the obstruction of women shifted from witches to preventing females from being able to vote, and a whole host of laws persecuting women such as the criminalization of abortion, lack of property rights, and so on. Even in ‘modern’ Australia, women are prejudiced in their income level compared to men doing the same job not to mention the glass ceiling.
Of course, the environment for females has also seen exponential improvement since the arrival of the first age-decan in the Age of Aquarius – the Libra age-decan (1433 – 2149), more so in western nations and less so in less developed nations. But what most astrologers do not know is that we are approaching the business end of the Libra age-decan (1433 – 2149) further emphasized by the final sub-age – which is of the same zodiacal sign. Currently the world is in the Libra sub-age (1970 – 2149), and this combined with the Libra age-decan indicates the heat is being turned up for all Libra archetypes. Furthermore, the current Libra micro-age decan is the first appearance of a Libra micro-age decan in the current Libra sub-age, and this Libra micro-age decan can be called the baptism of the Libra sub-age (but not the baptism of the massive Libra age-decan). Baptisms get the ball rolling – or moving in a new direction!
Since February 2021, the Australian government commenced getting overwhelmed by charges of sexual assault by female government staffers, commencing with claims by Brittany Higgins that:
“she was raped by a colleague in the offices of the defence minister in 2019 just before the election and that she felt she was told a police report would affect her future employment as a staffer.”
A string of claims have subsequently come to light including against Christian Porter, a federal cabinet minister who is alleged he viciously raped a fellow student when he was 17 and she was 16. Due to the woman recently committing suicide, any alleged offense cannot easily or readily be taken before a law court due to her death. The alleged cover up of sexual assaults has revealed the injustice applied to women who find themselves embroiled in issues of sexual assault by their ‘superiors’. It seems that every few days, another woman comes forward with more accusations of sexual assault against them involving the Australian government.
The 2021 Australian of the year and sexual assault survivor Grace Tame recently stated:
‘we are on the precipice of a revolution’
…. and the astrology agrees with her. Her address to the (Australian) National Press Club covered a number of issues including:
“The upshot of allowing predators a voice but not survivors encourages the criminal behaviour.”
Grace was fairly scathing of the Australian (federal) government’s handling of the recent sexual assault allegations.
It appears that the new generation of younger Australian women or not ‘behaving’ and instead creating a commotion against sexual assault. This does coincide with the current Libra micro-age decan (Dec 2019 – Nov 2024) which is the latest vertebrae to appear in the backbone of the massive Libra age-decan and overflow (1413 – 2149 – 2865). In thousands of years’ time, the current millennium will probably be known as the Millennium of Women!
Independent of sexual assault, Libra promotes justice and female equality, and the case of Kathleen Folbigg, who has been in prison for 17 years following the death of four of her babies, again raises the issue of injustice applied to females. Leading scientific experts are now arguing that all four of her children had rare genetic conditions that could explain their deaths. This case possibly harks back to the imprisonment of Lindy Chamberlain following the death of her baby by a dingo – this was clearly nothing else other than a modern witch persecution.
Australian sex discrimination commissioner Kate Jenkins, appointed to lead a review into parliament’s workplace culture, believes Australia is at a “turning point” on sexual harassment and assault. “I’ve never seen any moment like this,” she said.

Libra will not affect every country or region equally, as it depends upon the specific astrological signature. In Australia’s case, it appears that Sagittarius, Capricorn and Aries are in Australia’s astrological signature, and despite Libra being opposite in nature to Aries, there is a good case to include Libra at some place on Australia’s totem pole. This is supported by the fact that Abel Tasman virtually discovered Australia (for Europeans) in an earlier Libra period:
“The discovery of Tasmania (an island south of the Australian mainland) and New Zealand in 1642 by Abel Tasman (1603 – 1659) followed by the charting of northern and western Australia (New Holland) two years later suggests a Libra connection to Australia and New Zealand especially as these voyages occurred at the pinnacle of this Libra period.”See: Libra micro-age and overflow (April 1627 – May 1642 – April 1657)
For most people outside of Australia, the above sexual assault issue is something they either are unaware of, or perhaps have heard some brief news in the media, one way or another. This begs the question, how many other countries or regions are experiencing Libra’s lash but unknown internationally? We don’t usually think that Libra has a hard side, but many ancient cultures oftentimes associated Venus, the ruler of Libra, with war or conflict. It would be interesting to learn all the areas internationally where Libra is currently making its mark? The election of Kamala Harris as the first female vice president in the USA is part of Libra’s machinations – and the BIG question is – will she become president? The Black Lives Matter is certainly another example of Libra making its presence felt. Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, has increasingly been demonized.
Currently, the world is in the weakest quarter of the Libra micro-age decan and overflow (Dec 2019 – Nov 2024 – Nov 2029) and the temperature should be significantly turned up around 2024 – 2027 when Libra is in its most powerful quarter. There are many unanswered questions about what we should expect in the rest of the current Libra period – but the one thing is certain, Libra archetypes will be promoted. One of the most interesting aspects of the zodiacal signs is they can reinvent and produce new twists on established archetypes. We have to look for any new twists to Libra. For example, Libra is guilty of the obesity epidemic that has only really appeared in the world since the arrival of the Libra sub-age in 1970. It is possible that the relative inaction of the majority of countries around the world in their handling of the COVID-19 pandemic can be attributed to Libra – the sign of inaction!
Virtually no one alive today has experienced the current level of Libra that arrived in December 2019, as the last Libra period of similar strength occurred from December 1910 to October 1920 – a stressful period known for the First World War and Spanish Flu.

Not only does the Libra micro-age decan (Dec 2019 – Nov 2024) promote issues associated with females, but even the timing of this confrontation between the changing expectations of young Australian women and the Australian government can be determined by further sub-divisions of the Libra micro-age decan. The Libra MAD is one third of the Gemini micro-age (Dec 2014 – Nov 2029) which also contains 12 nano-ages (approx. 15 months each). The nano-age in effect for February and March 2021 is the Capricorn nano-age (Dec 2019 – Mar 2021).
Each nano-age also has three nano-age decans, and the period October 2020 to March 2021 is within the Capricorn nano-age decan (Oct 2020 – Mar 2021) thus further promoting the influence of Capricorn – a key sign for governments. Governments are usually downstream from society which means they are usually more conservative than the average person, and conservatism is ruled by Capricorn.
Drilling down even further, each 15 month nano-age has 12 five week pica ages, and the Capricorn pica age covers most of the months of February and March 2021. Thus Capricorn has reached its penultimate force at the same time as the sexual assault issue hit the Australian government. Combining Capricorn with Libra provides the astrological smoking gun for this situation.
