FROM RUSSIA: with love
Russia has two birth charts: One; when COMMUNISM was the rule of the day.
But the second birth chart: was erected in 1991 when Russia entered the DEMOCRATIC scene (if you can call it that), and the ERA OF COMMUNISM was finally dissolved.
Honestly, both charts (www.astrologyweekly.com/countries) are not that much different.
To understand this study, please refer to "CAN WE TRUST CHINA"? and look at the KEY of astrological houses.
What's interesting is that PUTIN, the elected leader of Russia today, has a birth chart very IDENTICAL to Russia's chart.
This SHOULD BE a good thing, no?
If he's good, he'll keep the country's BEST INTEREST at heart. Since his SOUL will RESONATE with that of the COUNTRY.
If not, he'll keep the country's BEST INTEREST as a secondary or even third priority. And allow CORRUPTION to run RAMPANT (as is the case now).
The ASCENDANT of the country falls in VIRGO at 14 DEGREES.
This explains (at least in the esoteric perspective of Astrology) why Russian People are quite meek, humbly quiet, hard working and "seemingly" cooperative, hopeful, and quietly and socially intelligent (as far as the politics of their own country is concerned)
A thirst for KNOWLEDGE, SIMPLE JOY, FAITH, seems to 'ooze' from the 'essence' of every Russian Citizen I meet (and to be CLEAR, we are talking about the Russian People in their own country-NOT THE ONES THAT ARE HERE, in the states).
I've held numerous interviews with the Russian Jewish Community ( in Brooklyn) to get an insight into the further sociology of its people-both here and abroad. I've interviewed non Jewish Russians as well, and quite interestingly, seem to emanate a certain "peacefulness" of CONVICTION that can be matched only by refugee German Jews (with similar sentiment about their own governments).
And, what's interesting is that Germany's chart has similar "signatures" . But we'll get to Germany later.
Another feature of the 14th DEGREE (which is a #5 vibration) also inspires CREATIVITY, ADAPTIVENESS, and BURNING OPTIMISM-but these "feeling states" resonate with the commoners (the regular country folk)
AT THE HIGHER END, of the social strata, this very same "vibration" manifests quite differently:
Imagine, if you will, seven dogs of different breeds, haven't been fed for days. The dogs, being of different breeds are nevertheless family (sure, it can happen).
Suddenly, a piece of stake is thrown at them.
One of the dogs survive the slaughter to get to that meat (which means, of course, that they killed each other off-to get to that meat, never mind sharing!)
THIS is the psychological STATE of the Russian new elite and "plutoaucracy."
Of course, it makes sense. You don't have anything, and then suddenly you are ALLOWED to have EVERYTHING-it can drive you CRAZY.
Corruption WILL ABOUND! (for sure)
But this, too, makes sense. You don't EVER want to go BACK to the misery of COMMUNIST POVERTY (so you'll do anything to stay "on top")
But we mustn't put Russia on the "hook" so to speak.
Every NATION on the PLANET has done this or reacted to this social paradigm.
It is part of the "human condition".
But given the fact that we are in a complex world, (and getting more complex by the minute) any foreign relations that we may have with DEVELOPING NATIONS (in which clearly Russia is one of them) has to be centered on POLITICAL EXPERIENCE.
Russia is NOW entering the GLOBAL SCENE (not that she hasn't been before, but this new REENTRY, is based on Russia's NEW POSITION as a CAPITALIST NATION ENGAGING IN FREE ENTERPRISE)
This is a NEW POLITICAL AND ECONOMIC DIRECTION for Russia. She's not SUFFICIENTLY EXPERIENCED to LEAD (not just yet).
Personal "demons" of GREED, CORRUPTION, and OPPRESSION are still "primal elements" in the psyche of the Russian people that has to be mastered and OVERCOME (and this WILL require TIME)
THE 14TH DEGREE, on that side of the social strata (of the plutocrats), will manifest as "THE OLD BOYS' CLUB" (You remember the "yuppies" of the 80's?)
This "community" of wealthy plutocrats will behave "worse" and even treat people with "unspeakable" cruelty and with a penchant of sadism.
Don't be surprised...
When you are suppressed, oppressed, and censored for HUNDREDS OF YEARS, that's going to have a "slinky" effect of "springing up" suddenly and "usurping" mental stability; causing people (because they have the money and power) to act sadistically.
if you are "twisted", more money will make you even MORE TWISTED AND /OR SADISTIC.
Every occupying thought will always be HOW TO ACQUIRE MORE, CHEAT THE OTHER GUY TO ACQUIRE MORE, AND HOW TO "SILENCE" OPPOSITION.
And of course, have as much fun as HUMANLY POSSIBLE-because, it might end overnight-like anything else-SO LET'S DO IT QUICK BEFORE WE GET CAUGHT!
THAT'S THE PSYCHOLOGY INVOLVED!
This degree carries TENDENCIES OF excess, debauchery , indolence, and finally, DARK MOODS OF DEPRESSIONS (before the fall).
Russia is a CAPRICORN COUNTRY, AND, LIKE CHINA, HAS SOME VERY POWERFUL SIGNATURES.
NEPTUNE IN THE FIFTH HOUSE AT 15 DEGREES 58 MINUTES OF ARC
URANUS IN THE FIFTH HOUSE AT 13 DEGREES 18 MINUTES OF ARC
THE NORTH NODE IN THE FIFTH HOUSE AT 9 DEGREES 49 MINUTES
THE SUN IN THE FIFTH HOUSE AT 3 DEGREES 4 MINUTES OF ARC.
All the planets are in Capricorn.
To have CAPRICORN in the FIFTH HOUSE of the SELF, is PROBLEMATIC (to say the least).
You see, Capricorn, like her sisters, Virgo and Taurus, is a MELANCHOLIC sign; SELF-DOUBTING, MISERLY, OLD (not just physically as the topography of the country, but also the psychology of its people will tend towards a 'gloomy' perspective on life as well).
THE MOON IS IN VIRGO AT 2 DEGREES ON THE ASCENDANT (or first house), creating a TRINE ASPECT with the FIFTH HOUSE STELLIUM.
The Russian People will FOLLOW SUIT WITH THE AGENDA OF ITS GOVERNMENT.
FOLLOWING ORDERS IS WHAT THE RUSSIAN PEOPLE KNOW HOW TO DO WELL (throughout its history).
But this doesn't mean the Russian people do not know any better-in fact, quite the opposite, they "play the game" (even thou they may FEEL DIFFERENTLY about the issue at hand).
Neptune at 15 degrees (according to occult philosophy) is the degree of the "devil". Neptune rules LIARS, ACTORS, DECEPTION, BETRAYAL, DISSOLUTION, OBSCURITY, NEBULOUSNESS, THE ASTRAL PLANE, THE SPIRITUAL PLANE, GHOSTS (from the past), PARAPSYCHOLOGY, MAGIC, THE BLACK ARTS, AND THE MYSTERIOUS, DIFFERENT DIMENSIONS OF SPACE-TIME (mathematically proven by string theorists), NATURAL GAS, OIL, ALL LIQUIDS, ALLOIDS, METALLOIDS
On the positive side, it rules HIGH CREATIVITY, HIGH IDEALISM, HIGH BEAUTY (more so than Venus!), ARTISTIC INSPIRATION, EXPRESSION, MUSIC, DANCE, AND HIGH ART (the kind that's worth millions if not billions of dollars!)
UNFORTUNATELY, because NEPTUNE is in its DEMONIC EXPRESSION (at '15' degrees), the NEGATIVE ASPECT will become more APPARENT than the positive qualities.
Russia's new ELITE must guard against being DECEIVED BY THEIR OWN DEVICES. And they must be careful not to DECEIVE OTHERS (otherwise they'll receive the same KARMA-inkind)
Uranus at 13 degrees (according to occult philosophy) is the degree of "death" (both physically and/or psychologically).
Uranus rules; EXTRATERRESTRIALS, SPACESHIPS, ALIENS, OUTERSPACE, STARS, ASTEROIDS, THE SPACE STATION (both 'manned' and 'unmanned', SATELITES, TECHNOLOGY, NUCLEAR WEAPONS, ROCKETS (and the ability to launch them), CHEMICAL WAR, BIOLOGICAL AGENTS, OIL REFINERIES, CHEMICAL PLANTS, PARTICLE ACCELERATORS, URANIUM, PLUTONIUM, REVOLUTION, REBELLION, "TAKE OVERS" (overthrow of governments), THE "GROUP CONSCIOUSNESS", GENIUS, PRODIGY, INSANITY, ACCIDENTS, "FREAK" GROWTHS, ECCENTRICITY, ELECTRICITY, LIGHTNINGS, THUNDERINGS, DANGEROUS WEATHER (like level 5 twisters), ALL METALS, PRECIOUS AND SEMI PRECIOUS STONES, COAL, "FRACKING" (the ground for oil), ALL RADICAL AND/OR SOCIALIST GROUPS, POLITICAL IDEOLOGY (extremists)
to mention just a few!
BECAUSE Uranus is in its DEMONIC EXPRESSION, at 13 degrees, the NEGATIVE ASPECTS will be more APPARENT than its positive qualities.
Death can come in SYMBOLIC WAYS, or quite LITERALLY .
HOWEVER, in respect to the SECURITY of the NATION, NO FURTHER DELINEATION WILL BE POSSIBLE.
THE NORTH NODE AT 9 DEGREES IN INDUSTRIOUS CAPRICORN SUGGESTS KARMIC LESSONS TO BE LEARNED CONCERNING, WEALTH, POWER, INFLUENCE, AND RESPECT.
THE SOCHI OLYMPICS COMES TO THE SCENE. ALREADY, THERE HAS BEEN ATTACKS AND TERRORIST ACTIVITY IN NEIGHBORING COUNTIES IN RUSSIA.
CONTROVERSY OVER HOMOSEXUALITY AND THE OLYMPICS HAS PUT RUSSIA ON THE GLOBAL STAGE-BUT NOT IN SUCH A GOOD LIGHT.
IN TWO TO THREE MONTH (not including retrograde periods) PLUTO WILL "HIT" THE 13TH DEGREE OF URANUS
pluto is associated with DEATH.
THE 13TH DEGREE IS ALSO ASSOCIATED WITH DEATH
AND THE FIFTH HOUSE IS THE HOUSE IN WHICH THE SOCHI OLYMPICS FALLS IN....
URANUS RULES "SUDDENNESS"
You read the above...need I say more???
vodka is being spilled on the streets as a demonstration of dissent
This is another MANIFESTATION OF PLUTO IN CAPRICORN IN THAT COUNTRY
February 17th, 2014:
The political unrest which resulted from a European Meeting with the central banks of Europe in late November and/or early December, resulted in BETRAYAL against the Ukraine's Citizenry; Europe's involvement with negotiations BEHIND THE SCENES to make the Ukraine a part of the Euro-exchange (for the BEST INTERESTS OF EUROPE) at the expense of the people's right to chose how to be governed, is what CAUSED the EVENT ON FEBRUARY 17TH, which made world wide attention.
Over one hundred people have been killed, police as well as private citizens are at war with each other. And, sniper activity from an unidentified group, is randomly committing acts of crimes very similar to war crimes.
The situation has escalated out of control, with now NEO NATZI groups coming if not already, emeshed into the scene.
AND, the "sharks" are circulating the new "political atmosphere" and "opportunity" for GROSS PROFITS to be made (betting against the market on the "sentiment" outcome of this upheaval; trust, there those who stand to "gain" from this conflict).
DARE I SAY, THAT THE CIA HAS BEEN "RUMORED" TO HAVE BEEN INVOLVED IN PRECIPITATING THESE EVENTS (but then again, it is not surprising, since this IS, as Americans, OUR PATTERN; as our own history clearly attests to).
AND! The media is making more of this than what it is, stating that Russian Troops have moved in and occupied the region, when, in all HONESTY; Russian Officials admit that their "presence" is routine and a naval base stationed in the region has always had Russian troops in its compounds.
"other forces" (politically speaking) are trying to sway public sentiment towards the precipitation of an ACTION AGAINST THE ELECTED INCUMBENT WHICH NOW HAS BEEN OVER THROWN BY THE "COUPE"; as News sources say.
A civil war is what's presently MANIFESTING in Crimea and the Ukraine, but it is NOT CLEAR WHO IS "DRIVING IT" FROM BEHIND THE SCENES; THE DIABOLICAL SCHEMES INVOLVING OTHER PROMINENT WORLD LEADERS (which have a "vested interest" in the unfolding of such politics)
WHAT DOES ASTROLOGY HAVE TO SAY...
Well, first, PLUTO AT 13 DEGREES CONJUNCTS (comes close to) the PLANET URANUS AT 13 DEGREES!\
Remember, URANUS rules REVOLUTIONS, UPRISINGS, CHAOS, AND FANATICAL GROUPS (like the Neo Natzi and such anti semitic groups)
