The 6th exact Uranus Pluto square of December 15 made headlines with Russian Ruble roulette as the currency collapsed against the U.S. dollar. Uranus symbolizes unexpected chaos, new cycles. Pluto symbolizes death, wealth, power. The Rouble has lost 25% of its value in the past three weeks and is now as low as it was in 1998, when Russia defaulted on its debt. Russian leaders and banks went into an emergency meeting and raised interest rates from 10 to 17%. World oil prices have slumped causing the recent crash, plus Russia is under tough sanctions from the U.S. Is Russia teetering on economic and political collapse?
U.S. Congress passed a bill which sets out legislation which authorizes – but does not legally require President Obama to provide lethal and non-lethal military aid to Ukraine, including anti-tank weapons, ammunition and troop-operated surveillance drones. Obama must decide whether to sign this bill or not.
Mr. Putin, who is the worlds richest man from oil and tyranny is in big trouble. With a Capital C that rhymes with Putin that stands for pain.
VLADIMI PUTIN IS A LIBRA born October 7, 1952 in St. Petersburg Russia at 9:30 am.
Vlad, like the VAMPIRE, has his NATAL SUN at 13 degrees of LIBRA conjunct SATURN at 17 degrees LIBRA. Yes- you guessed it. We know why Russia is having an economic meltdown with Putin at the helm now. This will continue into 2015 and 2016 when Pluto squares Putin’s Saturn.
Russia also claimed its right to send nuclear weapons into the Ukraine in a statement to show the world it will not back down from its “ownership” of the area. Russia cannot move its strategic nuclear forces around the country with out officially verifying this with the U.S. unless it wants to withdraw from the 2010 New START treaty.
There a number of different chart that Astrologers use for Russia. This is the most common one.
PLUTO, Lord of death, recycling, power, control, is conjunct Russia’s NEPTUNE the planet which rules OIL, natural gas, illusions, delusions, addictions. Neptune in the 11th house Retrograde at 13 degrees Capricorn also being squared by URANUS planet of revolutions, chaos, the unexpected and freedom in Russia’s large first house.
Russia’s Jupiter is at 15 degrees of CANCER which symbolizes the motherland, home, food, the people, expansion, education, optimism emotional security and safety. Russia has a big stomach and is a huge breadbasket for its people. It has just voted NOT to use GMO’s Monsanto seeds.
Jupiter’s Cancer is very close to major Fixed star Sirius also 2 degrees from the U.S. SUN at 13 degrees. Of course Jupiter is also being pounded by a Uranus square to homeland security and Pluto in Capricorn expanding its own sense of what it refers to as its “home lands.” Jupiter in the 5th house will force Russia to rely on its own creative resources.
Jupiter will transit Russia’s descendant where it intersects with all “others.” It will expand into other people’s lands even more around October 2015.
Saturn is now also exactly opposite Russians Natal Mercury at 29 degrees TAURUS -extremely stubborn thinkers and communicators which is conjunct to the famous PLEIADES or 7 weeping sister, 7 kumars, of astromythic fame. Be very careful what you say Mr. Putin. Saturn will again affect this sore spot in the summer of 2015.
NEPTUNE planet of dissolution will cross Russia’s Ascendant at 11 degrees PISCES in mid April – July 2016 and again in 2017. Saturn Lord of karma, death, will be at 20 degrees of Sagittarius opposite Russia’s sun in December 2016. so BYE BYE Russia as we have known it with in the next 2 years.
China and Russia just signed trade agreements, for Russia to export cheap oil to China.
On Dec 14, China’s Premiere Li Keqiang went to Kazakhstan to sign cooperation agreements with Prime Minister Massimov. China has already signed on to revive ancient Silk Trade Routes with a $40 billion infrastructure plan to link markets across Asia. China is Kazakhstan’s biggest trade partner since 2010, they share a 1,000 mile border. This has broad military implications as well.
China in now the wealthiest country in the world and will retain that crown for quite some time. Remember that the U.S. is in a Mars Retrograde phase in its progressed chart till the 2070’s.
China’s NEPTUNE at 14 degrees Libra is smack dab in the Grand Cardinal cross of 2014 and Neptune rules oil, illusion, delusion, oneness, completion, hidden enemies, karma, religion and spirituality. Libra rules DIPLOMACY, grace, karma, balance; equal relationships which China does NOT have. Hidden enemies is a key word in China as well to watch for.
China is having a KARMIC CARDINAL CROSS as Uranus Pluto and the Nodes of the Moon are conjoining its natal Nodes. China’s North Node at 16 degrees Aries symbolizes its highest spiritual growth in the 2nd house of Money, values, resources and innovation, new inspirational energy and leadership is being aspected now and especially in 2015 at the last square on March 16 2015. Yes China is once again the largest populated and economic force in the world.There may be a big shakeup coming in China in 2015 -2016.
Turkey has now become a future player in Russia’s oil dilema. Russia has surprisingly dropped a $45 billion south stream natural gas pipeline and is reaching out to Turkey to draw it in by building a Trans- Anatolian Pipeline running under the Black Sea to the Greek border, making Turkey an energy hub. But the two countries do not agree on Syria, the Crimea or Cypress. We shall see. This will be a hot bed for a while.
has Venus at 11 degrees of Cancer in its 4th house. So trying to keep its own values and resources safe and protected is a major issue. Turkey is a very ancient culture and stronghold. Turkey has Uranus at 8 degrees Aries in its 10th house of worldly status and an 8 degree Cancer Ascendant. With a 16 degree PISCES MID HEAVEN Turkey is very vulnerable and wounded by religious factions and being able to maintain its secular stance. Religion will be a major political and economic problem and force over the next year as Chiron transits that point. Jupiter will hit the IC or roots of Turkey in October 2015 which may cause a mass exodus from here or an invasion from another country.
Yes sometimes the transits do exactly synchronistically coincide. The crash of the markets in October 2008 was exactly only 8 days after Pluto entered Capricorn. Don’t say I didn’t warn you in advance.
