The current ‘meltdown’ of stock markets is a preview for the next nano-age. The world has just entered an Aquarius nano-age (Sep 2018 – Dec 2019), and this Aquarius nano-age will be followed by a Capricorn nano-age (Dec 2019 – Mar 2021). Capricorn rarely brings good news to the economy or stock markets as it is known as a dour and depressed sign that brings problems.
There is a strange quirk in macro-astrology due to the system employed for determining sub-periods of the ages based on dwadasamsa (dwads) whereby, each new period begins with a sub-period, that is the same as the following period. For example, the 15 month Aquarius nano-age commences with a 5 week Capricorn pica age straddling September to November 2018, and the world is currently in the middle of this very small period deep within the Age of Aquarius. [See The Age of Aquarius for Dummies for details on sub-periods). The next nano-age is a Capricorn nano-age making the current Capricorn pica age a preview to the coming Capricorn nano-age.
These pica ages, that are technically only 5 weeks long, overflow onto the following pica age making a total effective period of 10 weeks – but it is the middle 5 weeks where most of the action occurs, and based on my macro-astrology ephemeris, this is where we currently sit (October 2018). A pica age is incredibly small and “fuzzy” due to a number of reasons, but it is in the relatively volatile stock markets that they appear the clearest.
The current stock market turmoil is the strongest since February 2018
The February 2018 plunge was associated with a Virgo pica age and overflow (Dec 2017 – Mar 2018), and Virgo is also usually bad news for the markets because Virgo brings a dose of reality – rarely a positive sentiment for the (Pisces) bubble-driven markets. The deepest low for the year on 23 March 2017 also occurred within this Virgo pica age overflow. The other largest dip in 2018 straddled the last 3 weeks of June aligned to the Gemini pica age overflow (May – July 2018). Gemini is also historically negative for the markets as Gemini opposes positive Sagittarius expansion.
However, despite the negativity associated with the current slump, this should be relatively short term as it is just aligned to a pica age. Sitting above this Capricorn pica age is the Pisces nano-age overflow (Sep 2018 – Dec 2019) and this provides the astrological environment for a mini-market bubble (see my previous post).
The following is my nano-age ephemeris for the current Aquarius nano-age (and more powerful Pisces nano-age overflow). The highlighted cells indicate the most difficult signs/periods for the stock market:
The current market fall should be placed in context. Examining the following graph for the previous two years, shows that the current correction is just shifting the markets back from hyper-bubble mode, back to the standard bubble mode of the markets with the normal over-correction.
The big economic question based on nano-ages, can the incoming Aquarius nano-age override the Pisces nano-age overflow that both ‘rule’ the period September 2018 to December 2019? Aquarius does have a reputation for sudden and unexpected developments, and the arrival of the more significant Aquarius micro-age decan (Dec 2014 – Dec 2019) has already seen the inauguration of the most eccentric president for the USA to date, and coinciding with the growth of far right politicians and neo-fascists around the world, with fascism ruled by Aquarius. This has all occurred prior to the arrival of the more powerful Aquarius micro-age decan overflow (Dec 2019 – Nov 2024), but Aquarius is always the odd sign, and it can be in a rush, compared to other signs.
Aquarius is detrimental to the markets as it opposes Leo – one of the strongest pro-economic signs. The current Aquarius nano-age does sits within the very powerful Aquarius micro-age decan and overflow (Dec 2014 – Nov 2024), and it will certainly make a mark upon the world’s economy with the arrival of the Aquarius nano-age overflow (Dec 2019 – Mar 2021). Can it override the mini-bubble usually associated with Pisces, in this case, the Pisces nano-age overflow (Sep 2018 – Dec 2019)? Once the current hiatus subsides, the Pisces mini-bubble should still have life, and should still have an impact until the end of 2019.
