There is a good case astrologically for betting that Bitcoin and pseudo-currencies are in a trough with nowhere to go but up – relatively soon.  Bitcoin peaked mid-December 2017 – just while the world was passing through the Scorpio nano-age decan and overflow (Jun 17 – Nov 17 – Apr 18) with the most potent stage covering the period November 2017 to February 2018.  Another month or so should see the end of the bear market in pseudo-currencies as Scorpio comes off the boil.

One contributing reason pseudo-currencies have floundered is due to Scorpio.  Scorpio will always oppose Taurus, and anything associated with money or cash of any form will therefore be linked to Taurus and be opposed.  Scorpio in this instance is however a very small influence.  Historical correspondences indicate that a small nano-age decan (of 5 months) followed by the nano-age decan overflow (for another 5 months) is generally too weak to be a significant factor affecting the major markets such as the Dow Jones, but it may occasionally get a punch in.  We may have just witnessed this punch both in pseudo-currencies and the Dow Jones.

As the above graph indicates, the influence of Scorpio drastically reduces sometime in February 2018, and the remnant Scorpio influence finishes in April 2018.  I do not expect the remnant influence to be overly influential.  The small Scorpio influence is replaced by the Cancer quasi nano-age decan (Feb 18 – Jul 18), and while Cancer brings volatility, the influence upon markets is generally up, despite the volatility, because Cancer is opposite in nature to dour Capricorn.

What is really fascinating for my research is the possible involvement of a much smaller period than even a 5 month nano-age decan.  Each 15 month nano-age has three nano-age decans, but also nominally have 12 pica-ages of approximately 5 weeks each.  These pica ages are incredibly difficult to focus upon, and tend to go in and out of focus.  In the case of the Bitcoin crash and DJ tumble, it appears that a pica age has made an impact.

Another interesting aspect of the greatest fall of the Dow Jones Industrials Average occurred under the influence of a 10 week Virgo pica age and overflow (c.Dec 17 – Feb 18 – Mar 18) – the smallest division of the astrological ages that I have been able to detect.

Worries about the impact of a tightening job market on the prospects for inflation and a surge in bond yields sent investors fleeing equities on Friday, with the Dow Jones Industrials Average swooning almost 666 points, for its biggest daily percentage loss in 20 months.

Virgo is the sign of employment, and it was good news about the improvement of the US job market that sent investors fleeing as a good job market indicate a buoyant economy that leads to interest rate rises that subdue the equity markets.  This Virgo pica age sits within the Scorpio nano-age decan overflow (Nov 17 – Apr 18) with Scorpio the sign of debt and therefore interest rates.

The following table is an ephemeris (of sorts) for the current Pisces nano-age breaking it up into the 12 pica ages as well as the various forms of nano-age decans (i.e. nano-age decans, nano-age decan overflows and quasi nano-age ecans).  What is so relevant is that the period December 2017 to February 2018 is a Virgo pica age followed by a Virgo pica age overflow for the period February to March 2018.

The above pica age ephemeris (for the Pisces nano-age) can only be taken as approximate because at the level of pica ages, precession of the equinoxes’ retrograde motion is not linear, but highly erratic. Based on the formula for Rigorous Precession, which I use for measuring the rate of precession of the equinoxes, each 5 week pica age should be viewed like a rubber band – which in some cases is stretched twice as long as average, in other cases, squashed much shorter, and a pica age could arrive early or late, and depart early or late in a totally erratic way.  It is like the problem scientists have with quantum mechanics – the normal rules that we consider that underlay physical reality in our world do not apply at the quantum level.

Therefore when I view the pica age currently in force I see the Virgo pica age (Dec 2017 – Feb 2018) but this Virgo pica age could have started as early as November 2017 or as late as January 2018.  Also, it could end as early as January 2018 or as late as March.  Just to confuse the issue more, the Virgo pica age is followed by the more powerful Virgo pica age overflow (c.Feb – March 2018) with the same allowance for variations in the start and end of this period.  Circumstances suggest that we are already in the Virgo pica age overflow as it is about twice as strong as the Virgo pica age.  Either my rectification is out by a few weeks or we are seeing the effects of rubber boundaries.

Virgo is one of the preeminent bubble-busters of the zodiac. It was a Virgo micro-age that burst the bubble leading to the Great Depression commencing in October 29 1929. The 10 year Virgo micro-age decan and overflow (Oct 1925 – Sep 1930 – Sep 1935) was almost at its peak and also in a Virgo nano-age (Jul 1929 – Sep 1930) when the crash occurred.  All great crashes are a two act play – there is the bubble make and the bubble buster.  [For more details on the astrology of the Great Depression see The Dynamics of Economic Recessions in the Age of Aquarius ]

The Virgo period that burst the bubble leading to the Great Depression was 36 times more powerful than the current Virgo pica age that I am proposing has scalped the pseudo-currency markets and spoofed the Dow Jones. It may also be implicated in the fall of the US dollar?  The USD is probably another canary in the mine for the main indices.  Therefore, we are not looking at a significant or major market slump in February 2018, but perhaps 5 weeks or so of a gloomy or moody market.

Another reason why I am not expecting a market reversal of any great strength is that the current Virgo pica age is sitting within the Pisces nano-age (Jun 17 – Sep 18), and Pisces creates the best bubbles.  This bubble will play itself out for most of 2018 and into 2019.  It seems appropriate for our current little Pisces bubble that it is in the pica age of the opposite sign, Virgo, that some serious headwinds have been encountered.

It will probably be left for another bubble buster to burst our mini 2018-19 bubble, and the culprit will probably be the Capricorn nano-age (Dec 2019 – Apr 2021) – especially the high-point of its Virgo nano-age decan and overflow around May 2020.  Until around then, the DJ and other indices should mainly be looking at the clear blue sky.  Virgo, Capricorn, Gemini and Scorpio are all bubble busters.  It was the high-point of the Scorpio quasi micro-age decan (Jul 2007 – Jul 2012) that burst the bubble created by the Pisces quasi micro-age decan (Aug 2002 – Jul 2007).  Naturally, this all occurred in the Cancer micro-age (2000 – 2014) with the worthless sub-prime real estate bonds, and Cancer is the sign of real estate.

Bitcoin, pseudo-currencies and the USD are probably affected by the Scorpio nano-age decan more so than the main indices because Scorpio particularly targets Taurus archetypes associated with cash in all of its assorted forms and uses.  It may be more than coincidental that as Bitcoin collapsed, the DJ has shuddered, indicating that currently, Scorpio is at maximum influence affecting Bitcoin more than the Dow Jones.  The Virgo pica age provided that extra oomph to upset the markets.

Finally the role of the Aquarius quasi micro-age decan (Jun 2017 – June 2022) must be acknowledged as the 5 year quasi micro-age decans are the most relevant overall indicators of the world’s economic fortune at any point of time.  Aquarius is high energy, but inconsistent and favors extremes over the mainstream.  Any downturn, temporary or not, may get energized more so than normal due to the nature of Aquarius.  Even if this is the case, the overall sentiment for most of 2018 and 2019 is headlong into an unsustainable market bubble, and history has taught us that all bubbles are unsustainable – including the bubble we currently reside in as a result of the Industrial Revolution over two centuries ago.  We are approaching that bubble buster in earnest over the next few decades which will define most of this century.

The Canary in the Mine: for those readers not familiar with this aphorism, this cliché is derived from coal mines in previous centuries where noxious gases could kill unsuspecting underground miners because generally the gases had no odor.  Canaries were very sensitive to these noxious gases, so canaries in cages where placed at critical points in mine shafts, and if they fell over and died, the miners left the mine before they also died.
