His chart’s astrodyne report
His dominant planet-key decanate profile
The ascendant – his personality and personal affairs – and Midheaven – his public life, reputation and publicity – dominate his chart.
Dominant planet is Jupiter in house 1 (him). It’s the planet of goodwill, faith, optimism, patronage and wealth and he has a genial personality, sought a profession because he considers menial employment beneath his dignity and chafes under restraint. His best quality is benevolence.
Jupiter is parallel ascendant in the third decanate of Gemini.
Ursa Major – the decanate of reason – dominates his chart and Zelensky’s natural field of endeavor is the mental realm. He can achieve great things through his thinking but his heavy reliance on deductive reasoning can narrow his field of vision and encourage self-centeredness. He can avoid this misguided tendency by elevating his thoughts to a higher plane of endeavor and cultivating idealism and religion (Jupiter).
Ascendant and Jupiter in Ursa Major are harmonious so he’s inclined to express its best qualities – versatility and altruism.
The Sun – his power urge – in house 9 (public messaging via the virtual world of computers and devices) is in the first decanate of Aquarius.
Equuleus – the decanate of originality – bestows a remarkable knowledge of human nature and the ability to handle people and situations.
Zelensky is very inventive and progressive; naturally interested in education; gets excited about recent concepts, methods and techniques; and is inclined to follow his own ideas.
Sun – planet of politics – has below average power so his good opinion of himself (Jupiter) may have misjudged his political acumen. Sun is conjunction Venus – his social urge – and opposition (separation) Mars – planet of conflict in house 3 which in a global chart relates to neighbor countries – Russia.
Sun and Equuleus are discordant so he’s inclined to express their worst qualities – dictativeness and argumentation.
Moon (his mind) is in the second decanate of Leo.
Centaurus – the decanate of reformation – confers the ability to detect and recognize the faults and flaws in the world’s political and religious systems and the power to convince others of these faults, gain followers and set the wheels of social change and reformation in motion.
Zelensky has courage and conviction but if he gets his facts wrong his misleading claims and erroneous ideas will damage his reputation (Moon is opposition Midheaven).
Moon and Centaurus are discordant so he’s inclined to express their worst qualities – inconstancy, domination and sportiveness.
Mercury (his speech) is in the second decanate Capricorn.
Capricorn aligns his desire to speak with an I use attitude that’s patient, practical, subservient and diplomatic.
Delphinus – the decanate of martyrdom – gives him dauntless persistence, the capacity to work and toil to overcome setbacks, and the ability to make the most of his local environment. He’s capitalized on his personal circumstances and scaled the heights of success through relentless hard work.
Zelensky also has an exceptional talent for personal sacrifice and can suffer martyrdom because of his beliefs and objectives.
Mercury and Delphinus are discordant so he’s inclined to express their worst qualities – restlessness, deceitfulness and obstinacy.
His religious urge (Jupiter), intellectual urge (Mercury), universal welfare urge (Pluto) and domestic urge (Moon) spur him into action.
Pluto is prominent and high in harmony. It’s the planet of television, computers, groups, spiritual endeavor, cooperation and ruthless dictators.
Volodymyr Oleksandrovych Zelensky is the son of Oleksandr Zelensky, a professor and head of Department of Cybernetics and Computing Hardware at the Kryvyi Rih Institute of Economics and Rymma Zelenska an engineer.
He grew up in Kryvyi Rih a Russian-speaking region of Ukraine and prior to starting elementary school lived for four years in the Mongolian city of Erdenet, where his father worked. He later obtained a degree in law from the Kyiv National Economic University but never practiced instead pursuing a career in comedy creating the production company Kvartal 95, which produces films, cartoons, and TV shows.
In September 2003 he married Olena Kiyashko and they have a daughter, Oleksandra, born in July 2004 and a son, Kyrylo, born in January 2013.
From 2015 to 2019 Zelensky starred in an immensely popular television series called Servant of the People in which he played the role of Ukraine’s president and in March 2018 employees of Kvartal95 created a political party with the same name.
On December 31, 2018 Zelensky announced his candidacy for president by which time he had established himself as a popularist running on an anti-establishment, anti-corruption platform and was already one of the frontrunners in opinion polls.
He led a successful, almost entirely virtual campaign to unseat incumbent President Petro Poroshenko clearly winning the first and second round elections. He was elected president on April 21, 2019 with 73% of the vote and assumed office on May 20, 2019.
In a March 2019 interview Zelenskyy stated he went into politics to restore trust in politicians and that he wanted ‘to bring professional, decent people to power’ and ‘would really like to change the mood and timbre of the political establishment, as much as possible.’
In 2020-2021 he led his country through its covid-19 pandemic.
In January 2022 he initially distanced himself from warnings of an imminent war with Russia, while also calling for security guarantees and military support from NATO.
After Russia invaded on February 24, 2022 he declared martial law across Ukraine and general mobilization. The US is ready to evacuate Zelensky – Russia’s number I target.
