His chart’s astrodyne report
Volodymyr Zelensky is a Ukrainian screenwriter, actor, comedian and director who decided to become a politician and was elected Ukraine’s president on April 21, 2019.
Prior to his political career, he obtained a degree in law (but never practiced) and created a production company, Kvartal 95, which produced films, cartoons and TV comedy shows.
From 2015 to 2019 Zelensky played the role of Ukraine’s president in a television series called Servant of the People 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 was already one of the frontrunners in opinion polls. He won with 73% of the vote.
Now you may think that it’s all a bit zany but his birth chart is a tell-all explainer.
The Sun in his chart is in the first – originality – decanate of Aquarius and on November 11, 2017 progressed Sun moved to form a luck (trine) aspect with progressed Uranus – planet of sudden changes and amazing developments and cusp ruler of house 10 (his reputation and popularity).
This aspect, which ends on November 1, 2019, saw his originality and charisma (Uranus) sweep the viewing audience off their feet.
It seems that the Ukrainian people, exasperated with the political establishment were prepared to place their future in the hands of television comic turned politician.
Then, three months after winning the election, the inexperienced actor-president had an encounter with the world’s greatest deal maker, US president Donald Trump.
On July 25 they had a phone call (house 3) and on August 12 a whistleblower (Uranus) who is part of the US intelligence community filed a complaint about the call with Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson who deemed it credible and a matter of ‘urgent concern’.
Then on September 9 US lawmakers opened an investigation into the phone call and on September 24 the call launched a formal impeachment investigation into Donald Trump.
On September 25 the White House released a transcript of the phone call and on September 26 the complaint made by the whistleblower was released. And the little known actor-politician from Ukraine found himself at the center of a big, fast-moving political scandal involving the world’s most powerful leader.
Mars and that explosive phone call
In Zelensky’s chart Mars, the planet of strife, explosive developments and other catastrophes, is in house 3 (phone calls, documents and transcripts). It’s opposition birth chart Sun (his status and significance) in house 9 (ethical issues, trade, television, world-wide-web and social media).
But the Moon, planet of notoriety, also in house 3, is much stronger than Mars so it’s the chief ruler and it’s square (obstacle) disruptive Uranus and opposition birth chart Midheaven (his reputation and public standing).
House 3 with 10.30 discordynes is the worst house in his chart.
Volodymyr Zelensky’s chart progressed to July 25, 2019
On the day of the phone call – July 25, 2019 – progressed Mars at 25N02 was parallel birth chart Mars at 24 N 26 – and progressed Midheaven (his reputation) at 2 Aries 14 in house 11 was sesquisquare (agitation) birth chart Moon at 17 Leo 43 in house 3.
Progressed Sun (Donald Trump) at 17 Pisces 01 in house 10 (notoriety) was inconjunct birth chart Pluto – planet of crime, criminal activity, corruption, thugs, subtle pressure, harassment and drastic developments – at 16 Libra 41R in house 5 (risks and hazards) and inconjunct birth chart Moon in house 3.
And progressed Moon at 1 Pisces 52 in house 10 (publicity) was semisextile progressed Midheaven and sesquisquare birth chart Pluto stimulating the major Midheaven-Moon sesquisquare aspect and the major Sun-Pluto inconjunct aspect.
Zelensky’s transit progressed chart on July 25, 2019
The phone call event and its drastic (Pluto) consequences was timed by transit Midheaven at 17 Leo 21 in house 3 conjunction birth chart Moon, inconjunct progressed Sun in house 10 and sextile birth chart Pluto in house 5; and transit Sun at 2 Leo 07 in house 3 inconjunct progressed Moon in house 10 and trine progressed Midheaven in house 11.
You might think that Zelensky has had his life blown-up by a phone call and for him its aftermath must be head spinning.
Not only has he played a pivotal role in an impeachment investigation into Donald Trump he said things (Mercury) in their phone call that an article on the Reuter’s website described as a far-reaching ‘diplomatic car crash’.
Zelensky’s words (Mercury) are likely to irk US diplomats and France and Germany whom he criticized in the call. (Progressed Mercury – the planet of criticism – at the time of the call – at 25 Pisces 04 – was inconjunct progressed Saturn at 25 Leo 35R – planet of complaints, grumbles, worry, trouble and loss.)
Ukraine is at war (Mars) with pro-Russian separatist fighters and needs military aid (Mars) to fight the war and diplomatic help to get the stalled peace talks with Russia moving.
In many respects Ukraine is in a terrible – no-win – situation and things are not looking good for Ukraine’s novice President.
On January 27, 2019 progressed Sun in his chart moved to form an obstacle (square) aspect with birth chart Neptune at 17 Sagittarius 31 in house 6.
The aspect reaches peak power on January 27, 2020 and has attracted a very complicated (Neptune) situation with Trump and other world leaders that will undermine his power and authority (Sun).
Neptune creates confusion, stirs wild imaginings, devices schemes, tells lies, denies everything and is very toxic. And in 2020-21 progressed Sun is square progressed Neptune.
And, with progressed Sun and progressed Moon moving through house 10 (publicity) over the coming twelve months you’re going to hear a lot more about Volodymyr Zelensky.
Progressed Moon is sesquisquare progressed Mars from November 21, 2019 to January 1, 2020 and sesquisquare birth chart Mars from June 8 to July 30, 2020.
