Chart data is February 24, 2022 at 6.00am MSK (55N45; 37E35 – Moscow)
Internet sources give ‘just before 6.00am Moscow time’ (3.00am GMT) as the time Putin announces an attack on Donbas and calls on Ukraine’s military to lay down its arms. He warns other countries that any attempt to interfere with the Russian action would lead to ‘consequences they have never seen’. At 3.46am GMT (5.46am Ukraine time) explosions are heard in Mariupol, eastern Ukraine.
A chart for the time of Putin’s announcement reveals what the universe thinks and how the war will unfold from Russia’s perspective.
Mars (war) dominates the chart from house 1. It’s semisquare (friction) Sun (world leaders), semisquare and parallel Moon (the everyday people), conjunction Venus (women), sextile Neptune (oil), conjunction Pluto (division) and conjunction ascendant (the Russian people).
House 1 (the people and their welfare) dominates with 8 planets there.
Mars and Pluto are the cusp rulers of house 10 (Putin and business). Moon – the cusp ruler of house 7 (the international community) – is in house 10. Moon is square Sun – planet of world leaders – the intercepted ruler of house 7 in house 1.
The international community – via sanctions – will inflict heavy damage on Putin and Russian business and harm the welfare of the Russian people. Many Russians are at odds with their leader’s actions. Putin will suffer big reputational damage.
Venus in house 1 – the intercepted ruler of house 8 (death) – is conjunction Mars; and Mercury in house 1 – the ruler of house 8 (sanctions) – is square Uranus – planet of unexpected developments – in house 3 (Russia’s neighbors).
Many Russians will be killed in the fighting and radical moves by Russia’s European neighbors will hurt Putin and the Russian people.
Mars and Pluto in house 1 are the cusp ruler of house 9 (the public airwaves) and Russia is engaging in a massive misinformation campaign and cyberwarfare.
