Eras are still long periods of time in relation to the ever- changing flow of history. During the Pisces Phase, race riots, student riots, and prison riots all indicate. Compatibility Mercury Retrograde occurred during the election and, as you leading candidates for the United States presidential election. , Mercury went retrograde in Aries, but went direct in Pisces on April 4. . Start by selecting your Star Sign: Aries. Taurus. Gemini. Cancer. Leo. I wanted to write an astrology article on Republican Primary race for long time, but in the Republican Primary race and the Presidential elections. Since Romney's ascendant lies in the beginning of the Taurus sign at 10 degrees 34 minutes, so the 12th house cusp stays in Pisces at 23 degrees 28 minutes, the 8th.
Even warfare has been revolutionised. InHenry Shrapnel invented the exploding artillery shell that replaced the solid cannonball. InAlfred Nobel invented dynamite, a much more explosive material than black powder. With the increase in mechanisation, war began to change dramatically after the turn of the century. Inthe Japanese attacked Russian forces at Port Arthur in southern Manchuria, launching the largest war ever fought to that date.
This was the first war to employ armoured battleships, self-propelled torpedoes, rapid-firing artillery, modern machine guns, and land mines. Ten years later, World War I, 'the war to end all wars', broke out in Europe. Tanks and aircraft, as well as toxic chemical weapons such as mustard gas, were added to the arsenal. A mere three decades later, World War II introduced even more revolutionary weapons to the list, including rockets and the atom bomb.
Industrialisation has revolutionised family structure. Inthe Boston Manufacturing Company began hiring young farm girls as workers. Other companies found that they could cut costs if they hired women and children, replacing men as the breadwinners in family life. At the same time, children began to learn trades other than those of their fathers.
In an increasingly industrial and technological workplace, knowledge was changing rapidly. Traditional knowledge held by parents and elders became increasingly less important. The value of parental wisdom was replaced by the new knowledge of science, as well as the news and stories transmitted through the new media of radio and television.
Inthe gas lamp was invented, revolutionising the work cycle of the modern man and woman. This invention allowed industry to work their employees for longer hours, and eventually to keep production going well into the night.
This change has thrown the natural circadian cycle out of balance. We no longer work according to the rising and setting of the sun. We now live in a revolutionary new and artificial environment. Food has undergone a radical revolution.
InNicholas Appert opened the world's first cannery, or vacuum-bottling factory, near Paris. Food processing would totally revolutionise the new food industry. InEngland's Donkin-Hall factory created the first foods to be sold in tins.
Inpasteurisation was introduced in order to kill any harmful bacteria present in food to be bottled or canned. As the industry began to grow, chemists in the 20th century created artificial flavours, chemical preservatives, free-flowing agents, and artificial colours to help create more tasty and convenient products.
Aquarius rules genius and science. Advances in science have fuelled industry and technology during this era. The natural philosophers of the previous era, including Sir Isaac Newton, gave way to the pure scientist in this era.
These theories have radically revolutionised the way science looks at the universe we live in. We now know that we live in an expanding universe of uncounted galaxies, speeding quasars, and deadly black holes, where a particle of matter is simply trapped energy. We may also live in a universe containing more than ten dimensions. Aquarius rules global communications and world culture. Napoleon structurally united all of Europe and reorganised European countries to conform to the organisational ideals of the French Revolution.
He consolidated all of the old and confusingly disparate political patterns that had come into being throughout Europe into more manageable patterns. These nations then went on to create wholly new states with a feeling of belonging to a fresh European cohesiveness of identity that would lead to a unification of the world that was previously unknown.
Europe opened China and Japan to a burgeoning new level of world trade. With the invention of the steam engine, international and even global transportation soon became a reality. The telegraph began the push toward forming today's global communications network.
Astrological Ages as an Accurate and Effective Model of History
An international money economy was developed to support international projects, along with the creation of multinational corporations. Utopian ideals, brotherhood, equality, and progressiveness are all traits of Aquarius. The focus on individual civil rights within government in the previous era culminated in the American Revolution in and the French Revolution in The political ideals of a basic right to the pursuit of happiness, liberty, equality, and brotherhood were born.
America became the utopian ideal for much of the rest of the world, with idealistic images such as America's streets being paved with gold. The new ultimate dictatorship of this era, Communism, was created by Karl Marx, based on the utopian ideal of workers' communes, all toiling in the spirit of equality and brotherhood for the greater good of all. The Cold War during the last decades of this era was a clash of ideals between the utopian promise of capitalism of the West and that of utopian Communism in Russia.
The Aquarian ideals of equality have spread to cover a wide range of people and of all life in this era. Beginning with 'Fanny' Wright inwomen have fought for and gained a degree of equality to men in almost every area of life in the West. The Equal Rights Amendment was gaining ground until the end of this era, when the energy changed and it was then finally stalled.
Slavery was abolished and Blacks have at last legally been granted equal rights in this country, as have other minorities. The rights of the mentally and physically handicapped are protected by law, as are the rights of the poor and unemployed. Even the rights of prisoners are now protected by law.
These rights have also been extended to domestic pets, through organisations such as the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, and even to protected wildlife within national forests and state parks.
The Environmental Protection Agency was established to further protect entire ecosystems, including plant life. One of the most personally promising of Aquarian gifts is that of immortality. Immortality implies not only the lengthening of the average lifespan but also a reduction in the mortality rate of children, allowing more people to survive into adulthood and beyond.
Already, in this era, great strides have been made towards that goal. Since the beginning of the 19th century, there has been a very dramatic drop in the mortality rate that has spurred a powerful increase in population growth. In in Europe alone, there were million people. Bythere were million. That same year worldwide, there were 1. Today that number is over 6. Over this same period, the average life span of an individual has dramatically increased to almost double that of previous periods.
The average lifespan today for both genders is in the upper 70s, with many living well beyond that. The population growth of these last two centuries has been one of the most important themes of this modern era, for it is linked to almost every other theme. It fuelled the unprecedented rise in huge metropolitan cities and urban living. It created huge consumer markets, making the Industrial Revolution profitable. Socially, it created fertile grounds for strife and armed revolution, as people competed to attain a decent standard of living.
Increasing numbers of governmental social institutions were created in order to handle this increasing unrest. Eras are still long periods of time in relation to the ever- changing flow of history. Looking closer at the Aquarius Era, from tothe phases reveal yet another level of historical complexity. In addition, the current phases since reveal that we have entered a potentially destructive period in our history.
Phases Phases are each 15 years long and move forward through the zodiac. Let's examine those that made up the history known as the twentieth century, and specifically tothe high point of the Aquarius Era.
Scorpio Phase of the Aquarius Era to Death, rebirth, and suffering mark this period, as well as delving deep into the hidden nature of our world and the human psyche. This was the intellectual beginning of the twentieth century and the high point of the Aquarius Era.
Cubism, Dadaism, and abstract art all indicate the death of classical or traditional artistic ideals and the birth of modern art. Freud's psychology planted the seeds of a new type of mental belief system, delving deep into the subconscious that marked the death of traditional religious answers to life.
Quantum physics and relativity theory supplanted classical Newtonian physics and revealed deep and powerful secrets about our universe. World War I was the first war fought on a global scale with the devastating power of modern mechanised weapons such as tanks and airplanes. The Spanish 'Flu pandemic killed over twice as many people as the war, and did it in only six months. It was the largest pandemic since the Black Death in the Scorpio Era, and killed over 21 million people.
This served to destroy the lingering reliance on religion over questions of good versus evil and allowed humanity to embrace the new more secular and modern vision of our world.
Sagittarius Phase of the Aquarius Era to Vision, exuberance, expansion, mass media, competitive sports, and publishing. This phase marks a period of exuberance and cultural expansion, much like the larger renaissances of the Sagittarius Eras. This was the period of the Roaring Twenties and is also known as the Negro Renaissance that heralded the birth of jazz. It was also a period of great 20th-century writers, such as Steinbeck and Hemingway.
Babe Ruth fostered a period of expanded interest in sports. Technological advances such as radio and television greatly expanded knowledge and learning, and helped promote the creation of a world cultural vision.
The Great Depression, caused by an exuberant over- investing by the public without understanding the laws of investment, created a top-heavy market that crashed in a very large and expansive way. Capricorn Phase of the Aquarius Era to Government, civic responsibility, and tradition. This period was one of adherence to traditional moral and civic values following the exuberance of the Roaring Twenties in Sagittarius.
It was also a time of big government: Franklin Roosevelt was the most despotic of all US presidents. World War II was fought on the home front as civic responsibility touched all levels of society. Material drives allowed citizens, including children, to help the war effort. Women in huge numbers went to work in factories to help supply the troops. After the war, which was fought over Germany's quest for more land Cancer opposite to Capricorngovernments in Europe and America created cradle-to-grave social welfare systems designed to take care of citizens as they grew older.
Aquarius Phase of the Aquarius Era to Science, genius, utopias. This was an intensified period of science and technology. The nuclear age, the space age, and major advances in electronics and computers, revolutionised the modern world. The Cold War between the Soviets and the West was fought in an intellectual manner Mercury is exalted in the air sign Aquarius over ideology. The ideology of this post-war period supported the rapid expansion of a world culture sensibility as both sides sought to create a unified world culture based on the worldwide distribution the ideas of the West and Communism.
The fight was between a Communistic utopian ideal and a capitalistic and democratic utopian ideal. During this time, school curricula changed towards a heavy science focus, as the West wrestled with Communism for scientific superiority. This was a period of intense social breakdown. Historically this period needs to be understood in relation to the connecting Pisces Era that runs from to This is all part of a continuous period. During the Pisces Phase, race riots, student riots, and prison riots all indicate the disintegration of social values and the need for reform at all levels.
Toxic industrial pollution and radioactive pollution became powerful news stories during this period, threatening to speed life and humanity towards extinction. Extinction rates reached a level a thousand times above normal. Welfare began a rapid rise that pushed many cities to the brink of bankruptcy.
Internal violence and crime increased, dramatically overwhelming the resources of law enforcement and our prison system. Revolutionary terrorism plagued America and Europe, with the SLA and the Weather Underground terrorising the American landscape, while Islamic and other terrorist groups attacked Europe.
Death squads were active in South and Central America. Depression and suicide increased dramatically to epidemic levels. Even the environment responded to this energy.
There has been a steady and dramatic increase in volcanic and earthquake activity since the seventies. Ozone depletion and global warming were first noticed and warnings by environmental groups were largely ignored. With this last phase of the Aquarius Era of the Age of Pisces, the modern world began to dissolve. We then entered into the Pisces Era in and our world has continued to fall apart.
Interestingly enough, Pisces rules dissolution and the Virgo opposite rules disintegration and extinction. We are now in times of disintegrating social and ecological systems.
This period corresponds to end-time prophesies that are surfacing today in many cultures, ranging from Christian prophesy to Native American prophesy. By strict definition, this is not the end of the world. Rather it is the end of one period and the beginning of a new period, much like a clock with the minute and hour hands moving past the The Pisces-Virgo axis in the zodiac marks just such a time.
That this axis exists within the zodiac gives support to the religious prophesies concerning an end- time. There can be a historical basis to these ideas. Pisces rules dissolution, Virgo rules disintegration and extinction.
Pisces also rules prophecy and the fulfilment of prophecy. Pisces Era activity during this time, within the Age of Pisces, creates a double Pisces bath, an end-period of breakdown and chaos. It is a continuation of disruptive trends begun in the previous Pisces Phase, to Some researchers now say that we stand at the threshold of a sixth big, all- encompassing, mass extinction of life on earth.
Global warming is now recognised as a serious threat to life. This corresponds with religious prophecy from various cultures around the world and with contemporary Native American prophecy, which says that we are now in or on the verge of a major end of the present world scenario.
Now, let's examine the first two phases of this present Pisces Era. Much of the violence of the previous phase continued into this phase, including the internal terrorism and the rising crime rate that had afflicted most communities throughout the seventies. Social violence rose to new levels. Inner city gangs like the Bloods and the Crips now armed themselves with automatic weapons and became what might be called criminal armies.
Murder became a rite of passage for initiation into these gangs. Drive-by shootings and other forms of senseless violence entered the American social landscape. Girl gangs soon became as violent as male gangs. Children also began to turn to violence at increasingly earlier ages.
There were shocking news reports from this time of very young kids killing their parents or other, even younger children, often just to see what it felt like. By the middle of the s, there were some ten million violent crimes committed in America every year. This was a four-to-five-fold per capita increase in reported violent crimes over the level of the early sixties. America had now become the most violent civilised nation ever recorded in the history of the world.
Ina coup in El Salvador led to a period of intense internal violence. The government as well as civilian and semi-private groups began creating death squads that were directed against their own people in order to quash any and all dissent, or the possibility of any kind of reform.
West Africa erupted in a devastating explosion of violence in the nation of Liberia. International terrorism expanded dramatically during this phase, and airline hijackings became a regular news event. Terrorism became a major weapon of fanatic groups worldwide in their fight to promote their own agendas. Islamic groups led the way in both numbers and frequency of terrorist attacks.
Groups like Islamic Jihad, Hizballah, and the Palestinian Liberation Organisation were in the forefront of this violence. Taurus Phase, Pisces Era, Age of Pisces to Beginning aroundthere was a noticeable drop in violent crimes.
Bythat trend became more noticeable as the Taurean energy of peace took hold, and the trend has continued.
In addition, the number and intensity of terrorist attacks around the world softened noticeably during this phase. Sincethe major historical focus has turned away from violence and towards the economy.
In lateMexico devalued the peso. This move was an economically sound move designed to allow the peso to float and settle at the point of its real value. The value of the peso went down, and continued to go down. Mexico almost went bankrupt as a result, and the US was forced to step in and offer assistance.
At around the same time, the New York Stock Market took off like a rocket, soaring from 2, points to over 11, in only a year.
The stock market had never grown astronomically like this before.
Although the market is still up, the stock market has become very volatile, often changing by several hundred points in a single day. As a result, stocks have remained highly over-valued, which threatens to destabilise the world economy. Following the near bankruptcy of Mexico, wealthy Orange County in Southern California declared that they themselves were also on the verge of bankruptcy. Then inthe economic focus of this period hit home. It threatened to bankrupt every country it hit.
It even threatened to send Japan, the world's second strongest economy, into bankruptcy. Rampant consumerism has created a huge credit bubble that, if it bursts, could bring down every economy in the world. Bankruptcies have increased dramatically since and have reached a serious enough level that credit card companies have tried to back legislation that would exempt credit card debt from bankruptcy protection.
This phase brought with it the creation, inof a major new currency, the Euro, as Europe sought to unify the various currencies and economic markets of the European Common Market into a single market with a universal European currency.
According to some conspiracy theorists, this attack was instigated as an excuse to invade the Near East in order to head off an economic crisis for the US. Many of the oil- producing countries were thinking about shifting from the US dollar to the Euro as the economic foundation for international economic interaction. These theories suggest that this would have severely affected the US economy, and that the US felt it had to invade Afghanistan, Iraq, and hopefully, Iran in order to gain control of these regions.
Finally, the present sub-prime mortgage crisis is threatening to take down world economies. Already there are fears of a crash and possibly another depression. Sub-prime loans were made to those homebuyers who would not ordinarily qualify for loans. On one hand, this phase brought an increase in the tendency to want to gratify our desires immediately.
During the same period, beginning as early assub-prime loans began to increase dramatically. Inforeclosures accelerated, leading to a world-wide financial crisis in and This crisis has brought down major established financial institutions, including the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers and the buyout of Merrill Lynch by Bank of America.
It is now severely affecting economies around the world, from Europe to Asia. The fallout from the current financial crisis could lead to mass movements of people seeking stability or prosperity in their lives. Gemini periods in the past have traditionally supported mass movements of people, and this period should be no different, even without the crisis worsening.
During these times, the Germanic invasions, between andeventually brought down the mighty Roman Empire, and before that the Indo-European invasions, between BC and BC, brought havoc to the Mediterranean nations and the Indus civilisation in India.
Because this Gemini time will take place within the dissolving energy of the Pisces Era within the Age of Pisces, these movements will have the potential for creating social and political disruption that can overwhelm the cohesiveness of local and national communities. Cultural as well as ideological differences will be thrust against each other, creating potential arguments and divisions within groups and communities.
Local and national politics will become more partisan and divisive as people choose ideological sides and passionately fight for them, while being unwilling to compromise.
The present separation of Church and state may become more politically charged, with fundamental ideals aligning themselves against secular liberal ideals. The war on terror could escalate to become a more ideologically charged battle, polarising various predominant camps of thought such as fundamentalist Islam against fundamentalist Judeo-Christian religions and modern Western secular liberal thinking.
This tendency for division and argument could include our economic situation. There could be a greater tendency for an internal social division as the gap between rich and poor widens.
The present economic crisis could speed up the already growing rift between rich and poor, creating further division within our culture. It will also potentially change our present focus on consumerism, altering the ways that we look at our economy. The positive side of this phase, if we can access that potential, is the possibility of collecting and integrating all the various ideologies that divide our world into a new and more inclusive paradigm that can help lead us into the Age of Aquarius.
There will be an increase of new ideas that may create arguments and divisiveness when set against traditional ideas. Science will be confronted with an ideological need to include some sense of intelligent design into its purely secular ideas based on the current concept of chance and accidental evolution. These ideas can also advance our knowledge if we choose to keep an open mind.
New ideas can bring new life to old dogmatic ways of thinking. Summary In summary, this model of history adequately shows that astrological ages actually do work very accurately, and on a complex scale. Since BC, the five ages from Cancer to Pisces reveal a highly accurate and in-depth connection between astrological cycles and history. Within each age there exists a powerful cycle of astrological eras, which allow for the growth and evolution of humanity and history on a smaller scale.
These eras reveal amazing parallels, with the recurring renaissance classical high point being the most astounding of them. On an even smaller scale, the phases reveal an astrological evolution for each era.
The beauty of these cycles, especially the smaller eras and phases, is that they give us a deeper understanding of history and therefore of human interaction. They embrace and give insight into the complex times that we currently live in, and they allow us the potential actually to prophesy, to a certain degree, historical trends and possible approaches to what lies ahead.

When they meet the right Taurus partner, they can be intrigued and relieved by their nature, for what they see is actually what they get. Because of the emotional nature of the sign of Pisces and their deep sense of purpose, Taurus will feel loved to the point of getting lost in the sexuality of their partner.

They will both pay very little attention to their own pleasure because of all those feelings guiding them. This is almost always a giving relationship where both partners are equally satisfied when it comes to sex.
The beauty of their contact is in the fact that when together, they both lose their need to hide and let their emotions grow with ease. The sign of Pisces is a sign of mutable quality, and they can unexpectedly change, without a clear reason.
If this happens, Taurus will know that the trust is lost, however their relationship seemed just a couple of minutes ago. Basically, when Pisces partner gets bored, they start to think of excuses and lies, before they even realize that their relationship is over. It is up to Taurus to understand the flakiness of their partner. When they do, they can either accept the situation and fight for love, or end the relationship and move on.
Both of these signs are not very talkative and Pisces even lead Mercury to its fall. This is why they really need to form a strong emotional bond and listen to each other through very little words. Unfortunately, they can get lost in the world of Pisces and really lose that grip they have on reality. At first, this will be like a drug, an addiction, something they have been waiting for their entire life. The most important thing for Taurus in a relationship with Pisces is to stand their ground and hold on to their common sense, practicality and their usual need to live in reality.
With Pisces exalting Venus, the ruler of Taurus, this is not only love but adoration. If this feeling goes on, they could stay in a beautiful relationship for a very long time.
