Two significant changes to the world’s financial climate arrive in August 2015 (plus or minus approximately one month). Firstly, the Taurus nano-age (December 2014 – March 2016) entered its quasi-nano age section – which in essence meant that it shifted from first gear to second gear (see the Age of Aquarius for Dummies). Secondly the Virgo nano-age decan (May – October 2015), the first decan of the Taurus nano-age, entered its quasi nano-age section also equivalent to its second gear. I believe that there is clear evidence for the first of these two changes and very possibly the second change has also made an impact. Virgo always negatively affects the USA because the number one sign for the USA is Pisces. The massive stock market crash in the USA in mid August 2015 is a classic example of macro-astrology in action.
However, in this post, I will only address the Taurus quasi nano-age (Aug 2015 – Nov 2016. In my previous post, The Recession of 2015?, I stated, in reference to the arrival of the Taurus nano-age (Dec 2014 – Mar 2016):
In the middle of January 2015, without any warning, Switzerland lifted its cap on its currency’s value to the Euro, and temporarily, all hell broke loose in the foreign exchange markets with the Euro dropping in value as much as 30%.”
“We can expect some serious defaults and difficult financial issues in the remainder of the current Taurus period and Greece is already heading down this path…. “
“Currencies will come under pressure, interest rates become volatile and banks will be in the spotlight for positive and negative reasons.
Now that Taurus has increased its tempo with its second gear stage in August 2015, the financial issues that are always intrinsically associated with Taurus, will become more obvious, but Taurus has not yet entered its most intense period (Mar 2016 – Jun 2017).
The classic event associated with the current increase in Taurus was the devaluation of the Chinese currency in mid-August 2015, down 4.4% against the USD. This will disadvantage US companies and therefore the US economy. The Dow Jones Industrial Average had its worst fall in mid-August 2015 since 2011 and oil prices have plunged. Emerging market currencies from Indonesia to Brazil reeled as investors feared central banks around the world could rush to weaken their own currencies in response. Many currencies around the world have become vulnerable following the devaluation of the yuan.
While the sudden and step dive in many currencies, commodity prices and share market indexes has been extraordinary, it must be taken into account, that this is a preview or just an installment of what is to come. The arrival of Taurus’ third gear around March 2016 suggests far greater currency and financial turmoil ahead. Much closer to hand is the arrival of the third gear of the Virgo nano-age decan in October 2015 when the USA faces its biggest peril in the current economic turmoil. The current scenario is therefore just the opening act, setting the stage for the next two acts. The Swiss currency devaluation of January 2015 was just a preview to August 2105. Put a reminder for March 2016 for the apex of the current Taurus nano-age and overflow.
These nano-ages and nano-age decans must be placed in context as they are not wild cards acting randomly. They sit in context with larger periods, and research indicates the larger period of note is always the five years quasi micro-age decans. The world is currently in the Cancer quasi micro-age decan (July 2012 – June 2017). The two key areas of the world that have Cancer as their prime sign are China and the Middle East – plus all countries bordering the Mediterranean (the ‘middle’ sea). Therefore China and Greece are the two key economic precipitators in the period (July 2012 – June 2017).
Referring back to The Recession of 2015?, I now realise that I over complicated that post, introducing more elements than are necessary. The basic picture provided by the 15 month nano-ages and five nano-age decans in context with the ruling five year quasi micro-age decan provides all the relevant and contextual detail.
Coming soon, an updated analysis of the Virgo nano-age decan (May – October 2015).
 The astrological ages and sub-periods are based on the astronomical phenomenon of precession of the equinoxes whereby there is a slow movement of the fixed stars averaging one degree every 72 years. However this is not perfectly smooth or linear, and on the month to month level, the movement is not only erratic, the retrograde motion of precession can temporarily reverse and go forward (through the zodiac).
