Astrology of Russia June 12, 1990
There are several possible natal charts for Russia, but the one I’m currently studying is set for June 12, 1990; 1:45 pm BADT. Moscow, Russia – 26Vir11 rising, Mc 24Gem45.
This birth date means that the Solar Eclipse of Feb 6, 2008 – the ‘Unmasking Eclipse’ from the 10 North Series – is the Pre-natal Eclipse Series for Putin’s Russia. Ah HAH! Has Putin’s unmasking as an anti-democratic leader really been a big old surprise for George Bush who never believes his first impressions are wrong? Pshaw, Mr. Infallible!
Russia’s chart shows North Node at 8AQ04 so the current August 1 Eclipse is conjunct South Node and relates to the ongoing aggressions in the Georgia-South Ossetia region as the Big bear falls back on past behaviors (SN) on behalf of future plans (NN) which worked in previous times but may not be best for current circumstances.
Russia signed an agreement today with Georgia but has so far made no move to pull out Russian troops who seem to be hanging about the place, sharing cigs probably.
Yet you will find no better articles on the Astrology of Russia than at Michael O’Reilly’s Neptune Cafe.
Topics include: The Astrology of Putin’s Russia, the planting of a titanium Russian flag at the North Pole (Aug 20, 2007 – oil and gas resources are underneath the ice), and other articles of note.
Drop by Neptune Cafe for a good read – though not as long as ‘War and Peace’ but it will keep you engrossed for a while and includes Russia’s 1990 natal chart with details…highly recommended!
You may also be interested in two previous posts from this reluctant astrologer, the first concerning the 1990 Eclipses which, due to the Saros Cycle of 18.6 years, are repeating in 2008:
(How almost prescient of me! I wasn’t thinking consciously about Russia when I wrote it);
and the original ‘Unmasking Eclipse’ post at ‘Stars Over Washington’ – my Political Astrology blog which has had something of a face-lift today (sort of an ‘unmasking’?!!) with more changes to come as I attempt to learn the strange new ways of Blogger…
Soon I’ll be posting the horoscope of the next Solar Eclipse for Jan 26, 2009 which must surely affect the presidential term of whichever personage inhabits the bowels of the White House by then as it speaks of ‘suddenly changing groups one mixes with’ – well I guess so!
The Jan 2009 Eclipse falls at 6AQ from the 11 North Series and is near enough to Russia’s natal NN to keep the Big Bear in the news and busy with its totalitarian and resource-grasping projects…this Eclipse conjuncts Russia’s natal Moon 5AQ29 (the people; publicity.)
6AQ is also conjunct US natal South Node so issues from our past come back to haunt as Neptune (oil; gas; drugs; the masses; the Unconscious; deception; illusions; spirituality; Islam) on 9/11/01 is triggered by the 11N Eclipse. Russia and America have a NN/SN ‘flip’ where we bring out either the best in one another or the worst…and lately it seems to be the worst.
And in the Leo/AQ polarity, too – aka the Will Axis (or Will Power Axis.)
Now as you know, the attacks of 9/11/01 were about as close as one can get to a Neptune Return for the establishment of the great religion of Islam because spiritual Neptune was at 6/7 AQ when Mohammed entered Mecca centuries ago and Islam was born.
Neptune is in the 4th House (Foundation of the matter) of 9/11’s WTC attack chart, yet Neptune also signifies oil and other natural resources. So a 4th-house Neptune may describe the oil industry’s oil-and-gas grab as a basis for the attacks, if you roll that way – but also the confusion surrounding the mysterious perpetrators and their shadowy backers.
So – lots of Eclipse influences in the atmosphere these days and it isn’t possible for me to keep up with all the info pinging around the interweb or in my brain. That’s one reason why I like to pass on links to you when something informative turns up like Neptune Cafe’s amazing feature on the Astrology of Putin’s Russia.
