On the 20th January 2017, when Trump is sworn in as president, it will be just past the glow of the Cancer full moon located in Trump’s 12th whole-sign house. This is a bad omen for the immediate pre-inauguration period as the 12th house is usually related to ‘self-made’ problems and looking backwards. While the Cancer full moon falls in his 12th house, the lunar month for his inauguration is Capricorn ruling his 6th house. This indicates that his main background focus in the whole of the lunar month of his inauguration is on his new staff and new appointees.
February 2017 is mainly associated with the Aquarius lunar month with the full moon in Leo, Trumps rising sign. This suggests he be will ready to plow ahead somewhat in February. With the whole lunar month ruling his 7th house, opposition will be very strong from whatever sources. Trump’s secondary progressed Moon is located in his 12th house, and will not shift to his 1st (whole sign) house until around June 2017. There are sure to be teething problems until June 2017 and he may make one or more significant blunders but he finally gets his full focus mid-year.
What will get Trump’s focus by mid-year? The major issue in 2017 is war and conflict, a dependable bedrock issue for any conservative politician and this will be a real test for Trump. Will he be attracted to the drums of war that will be beating very loudly very soon or will he keep focus upon construction?
The world is in the Libra sub-age (1970-2148), which contains 12 micro-ages, and the current micro-age is the Gemini micro-age (Dec 2014 – Nov 2029). This also contains 12 nano-ages of almost 15 months each. The world is currently in an Aries nano-age (Mar 2016 – June 2017) followed by the Aries nano-age overflow (June 2017 – Sep 2018) with the second half more powerful than the first half. Another way of examining this period is to examine the upper half of the whole Aries bell-curve (combining the Aries nano-age with the Aries nano-age decan overflow Mar 2016 to Sep 2018) which is the Aries quasi nano-age (Nov 2016 – Feb 2018).
This Aries nano-age definitely helped Trump in the presidential election as under Aries, people look to an alpha male leader who projects Herculean qualities to right all their wrongs. The rest of the Aries nano-age and overflow (Mar 2016 – Jun 2017 – Sep 2018) will also help Trump because Aries rules construction, so he has the Aries nano-age on his side for building his Mexican wall plus his infrastructure program in general.
If Aries was only limited to construction, all would be OK, but its primary association is war, conflict and violence. Expect Trump to be at loggerheads with anyone he can find both domestically and internationally because that is the nature of Aries. Logic indicates that his main domestic opposition will be the Congressional Republicans as the Democrats have no power. Trump may even field candidates to oppose Republicans in the mid-term elections due in 2018. This Aries period does not indicate harmony but brute force.
However, the major influence of this Aries nano-age and overflow, that peaks in mid-2017 and seriously came online in November 2016, is war. It is the same level of Aries that produced the previous two Iraq Wars. The Allied invasion of Iraq in March 2003 was the most significant military event associated with the previous Aries quasi nano-age (February 2003 – May 2004). This was also that period when bombings around the world were almost nightly news on the TV – including many suicide bombings.
Some of the more famous one’s include: a double suicide bombing at a Moscow rock concert; the Super Ferry bombing in the Philippines by the Abu Sayyaf guerrilla group; the bombs in four rush-hour trains in Madrid, killing 191 people and the beheading of an American civilian Nick Berg, in Iraq. Another example of the extended Aries influence included the Beslan School Hostage Crisis with at least 335 people killed.
Aries rules accidents so we need to include the disintegration of the Space Shuttle Columbia during re-entry over Texas in February 2003, killing all 7 astronauts on board. Aries is also associated with health and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) also appeared with 8,273 cases and 775 deaths.
Major construction feats are related to Aries and many major skyscrapers commenced or were completed including the Freedom Tower at Ground Zero in New York City, the Burj Khalifa skyscraper in Dubai, which became the tallest man-made structure in the world, at 829.8 m (2,722 ft). The world’s tallest bridge, the Millau Bridge over the River Tarn in the Massif Central Mountains, France was opened and the official opening of Taipei 101 skyscraper in Taiwan, standing at a height of 1,670 feet (509 metres) was the world’s tallest from 2004 until the 2010.
Jumping back another micro-age, to the Leo micro-age (1985-2000) its Aries nano-age and overflow (Dec 1988-Mar 1990-Jun 1991) arrived at an historic turning point with a wave of revolutions that swept through the Eastern European Bloc, starting in Poland and coming to a head with the opening of the Berlin Wall in late 1989. This was followed by the overthrow of the communist dictatorship in Romania, and ending in December 1991 with the dissolution of the Soviet Union.
However 1990 also began with a crisis that would lead to the Gulf War in 1991 following the Iraq invasion of Kuwait. The Gulf War (Aug 1990 – Feb 1991) took place in the second half of this Aries period. This strongly suggests that these Aries nano-ages and overflow are linked to greater than average wars or conflicts but localized nevertheless. Though a much higher probability exist for a major conflict in an Aries period, this does not mean it will occur in every Aries period.
If Trump focuses upon infrastructure construction he has the gods on his side because Aries is associated with construction. Also the major influence on the sub-age decan level, which defines the international geo-political situation in the world, is currently the Gemini quasi sub-age decan (2000 – 2059) and Gemini activates the 4th house of home for the USA, the Pisces-Aquarius Empire in the world. As Gemini gets stronger approaching its high point in 2029, expect the USA to return to its international introversion phase.
The gods are on Trump’s side when he is focusing upon America’s heartland, and they even approve of his Mexican wall – but if he goes to war or raises the temperature in any existing conflict, the gods will be extremely displeased. The gods specifically do not want the USA riding roughshod around the world for at least the next 75 years while Gemini is so strong! Why? Because Gemini activates the USA’s 4th house which automatically detracts from its 10th house of status – the USA entered the low status period in 1970 and this low status period picked up speed in 2000. It increased in speed yet again in December 2014 and will reach its crescendo in 2029. (For more details see When Will the USA Retreat from the World? published in 2010)
In the short term, by mid-2017 a Pisces nano-age decan and overflow (Jun 2017-Sep 18- Dec 2019) first appears and will be influential for 2 ½ years. The first half of this Pisces period overlaps the last half of the Aries period which is a fundamental astrological mechanism of the overflow effect in macro-astrology. Pisces is the main sign for the USA so it implies that the USA will be pumping along nicely in its revolutionary conservative way during this period, especially the second half. The economy should be bubbling and the old USA may temporarily appear like a momentary mirage. But first, Aries takes the attention while Pisces is growing in the background.
Aside from the Mexican wall and any infrastructure projects, 2017 will be a year of animosity, conflict and almost certainly at least one serious military conflict. It cannot be said if this conflict directly involves the USA or not, but this will be the focus of the year. I remember reading some years ago from one war researcher who stated, after researching a thousand years of war, that “all wars are based on lies”. In “The Art of War,” Sun Tzu said “All wars are based on deception.” Get ready for some good lies in 2017! Pisces prefers lies!
