Turkey, its Astrology factors by Tara Greene

July 15 Turkey has had an attempted coup fail. Up to the moment news state that the Turkish people stormed the streets and bravely stopped the coup. Over 1,500 military were arrested and that democratically elected President Erdogan reasserted he was in control of the government. He has accused Fethullah Gulen for insighting the coup. The Turkish government just lost a trial in the U.S. to shut down Gulen who lives in Pennsylvania.

The traditional rivalry in Turkish society has been between secularists (including those in the army) who look to the modern state’s founder, Kemal Atatürk, who transformed Turkish society from perceiving itself as a Muslim part of a vast Empire into a modern, democratic, and secular nation-state.  Erdogan’s AKP party states it upholds democracy but is more Islamist leaning. It is very important to Europe and the West that Turkey remains Democratic as it is the gateway to the East/Asia as it has been since it was Constantinople thousands of years ago.

Lets look at whats going on  in Turkey’s astrology chart

Turkey, political Astrology Tara Greene

Turkey October 29 1923, 8:30 pm Ankara Turkey

What leaps out at me first is that SATURN at 10 degrees Sagittarius, still Retrograde, in the sign of the military, laws, foreigners, religion, philosophy, justice, honesty is squaring Turkey’s NORTH and South NODES. Saturn will turn DIRECT at 9+ degrees of SAGITTARIUS making an exact square on August 12/13. This is a karmic turning point in Turkey’s  evolution. These Nodes are evolutionary or regressive turning points.

CARDINAL CROSS planets – URANUS and PLUTO

Turkey is under a rare and powerful PLUTO opposition in its 7th house of “bedfellows” which has been going on intensely since 2012. Pluto is Retrograding back to 14+ degrees CAPRICORN on September 26 where it stations Direct opposite Turkey’s natal PLUTO at 12 degrees CANCER. 12 degrees Cancer is conjunct to the FIXED STAR SIRIUS, and the U.S. Natal Sun, and there is always a basic sense of connection to the West as was established by the countries founder ATATURK.This is a fight to live or die  for Turkey.  There is a natural Grand Water Trine in Turkeys natal chart between Pluto in the 1st house  in Cancer to VENUS in SCORPIO in the 5th to Uranus and South Node and the Mid Heaven in Pisces and the countries events are always highly emotional and based around religion, power, drugs,repression, rebellion and values.

PLUTO is also squaring natal Chiron at 18 degrees Aries in the 10th house of worldly position. This energy will continue to apply indicating feelings of vulnerability much wounding and unrest over the next year and all through 2017. I pray for this country which I visited years ago and felt so at home in. My grandfather who was Romanian spoke Turkish.

URANUS and ERIS the discordant planet who started the Trojan War are opposing Turkeys Mercury in LIBRA in its 5th house exactly at 24 degrees. This calls for revolutionary creative negotiations between the opposing sides. Good luck with that! URANUS and ERIS also inconjunct natal JUPITER in SCORPIO exactly now. Eris moves incredibly slow, Eris has been within a 5 degree inconjunct aspect to Jupiter since May of 1999.

MUTABLE CROSS PLANETS- JUPITER SATURN NEPTUNE

The transiting NORTH NODE has just crossed TURKEY’s M.C. or world fame position since June. JUPITER has also just crossed the I.C., 4th house cusp and roots of Turkey, at 16+ degrees of VIRGO. This is its sense of home, security nourishment and safety. It is literally the land. Jupiter expands whatever it touches. In Virgo this is  a budget tightening time. There has been sanctions placed on Turkey from Russia since the beginning of 2016 over its controversial shooting down of a Russian Su-24 bomber on the Syria-Turkey border in November 2015.

SATURN by transit in SAGITTARIUS will square natal URANUS conjunct to Turkey’s MC. at 13+ degrees PISCES in mid-October, exact on October 27.

This is Turkey’s personal “catalytic upheaval. Revolution is definitely in the air. This is the “should I stay or should I go?” big transit. Saturn in Sagittarius is martial law and Uranus in Pisces indicates underground terrorists attacks, by gas attacks, viral warfare, bombing and inside jobs. It will not be easy and Saturn in Sagittarius represents International involvement.

SATURN will exactly square the M.C. World fame position/homeland security I.C. axis exactly November 18 @ 16+ degrees SAGITTARIUS.  These symbolize tough dates and clashes with destiny. Saturn limits freedom of religious, legal and educational matters also International Trade and travel. SATURN In SAGITTARIUS can also be positive as the courts want transparency honesty, truth and justice.

NEPTUNE the planet of spirituality, dissolutions, lies, gurus, religion, institutions, addictions, oil, tear gas and secret enemies is also Retrograde currently on the SOUTH NODE of Turkey in its natal 9th house close to its M.C. The 9th house position governs the affairs of  religion, philosophy, education, foreigners, travel, honesty and inspiration. The South Node  indicates its past, the countries history, its all inclusive, secular outlook.

Neptune will RETROGRADE back to exactly touch the Nodal Karmic Axis  on OCTOBER 10 2016. This indicates a confusion, a fog a dissolution, a coming apart, a  review of its past in religion and foreign relations. Neptune crossed this point moving Direct on March 6, 2016 and will cross it again moving Direct on December 30/31st.

MARS turned RETROGRADE and is still simmering away in SCORPIO,opposite to ALGOL, Medusa’s head, fixed star of death and destsurction bringing up all kinds of unconscious power-hungry movers and shakers as this is another birth, death, transformation, resurrection time. MARS is sitting right on Turkey’s Natal JUPITER at 24+ degrees and also squaring natal Neptune at 20 degrees Leo. There are various military factions vying for leadership against the Erdogan. Expansion of military might.

Up to the minute reporting on July 16 says that Umit Dundar, has been appointed acting chief of military staff. 104 coup plotters have been killed, according to Reuters plus 90 people dead including 47 civilians,a further 1154 people have been wounded.

TURKEY’s MOON is at 29 degrees GEMINI which indicates an intellectual, youthful, curious, open mindedness. Yet Turkey is split, it has a dual nature. It may always experience this opposition within itself or secular/Islam. The Moon is in the 12th house governed by the powers of deep unconscious emotions, spirituality, hidden enemies, psychic powers, the oil, dissolution, compassion, dreamers, martyrdom.  The famed poet Rumi was born in Anatolia Turkey in 1207, over 800 years ago.

Interesting that the Turkish men came out in thousands and stormed the military on the bridges and lay down in front of tanks and overran police stations to contain soldiers in the coup. The PEOPLE are energetic, active, make their voices known. This is good.

ECLIPSES activating Turkey’s chart

The Solar ECLIPSE of March 20 2015 @ 29 degrees PISCES was exactly square to TURKEY’S moon at 29 degrees PISCES. The Moon is always the people and they are awake. That eclipse also fell on Turkey’s natal ERIS at 29 PISCES in its 20th house. This also release the chaos, ego-driven delusions, and war tendencies.

The more recent SOLAR ECLIPSE March 8 2016 @ 18+ degrees Pisces fell on the MC/IC axis activating unrest.

The March 23 16 lunar eclipse @ 3  degrees LIBRA activated Turkey’s Natal MARS, its military, its anger and defenses in its 4th house its roots foundations.

The September 1st 2016 Solar Eclipse @ 9+ degrees VIRGO falls smack dab on Turkeys’ North Node in its 3rd house of communications and its neighbours. Their is trouble with Kurds and the Syrian border and Russia. . This highlights major changes and transformations in Turkeys highest goals and directions.

The Sept 16 Lunar eclipse falls at 24+ Pisces squaring the Moon, the people and stirring up the 12th house Unconscious, energies.

My Prayers go out to the Turkish people and for a democratic peace in Turkey.

Russian roulette ruble rubble, 2015 Astrology predictions

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?

Russia finances Astrology Tara Greene

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. 

Russia economy Astrology Tara Greene

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 astrology chart CHINA astrology Tara Greene

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

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.

TURKEY              Turkey astrology Tara Greene

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.
