The Russian-Ukraine Crisis — USA Economic War against Russia

Reading Time : 6 minutes

In the previous post we discussed about the natal chart of Russia. We saw the very interesting relationship existing between Putin’s Pluto, the ascendant and descendant of Russia, and the Moon of Ukraine. We also pointed out the role of Saturn, as the transiting planet activating this set of relations.

In this article we are going to look at the chart of the United States as well as Biden’s chart. And interestingly enough, we are going to find again Saturn as the planet triggering the major transits that we can find in both charts, in regards to war.

The Russian-Ukraine Crisis — The Shadow of the Russian Government

Reading Time : 5 minutes

In the previous post we discussed about the natal chart of Ukraine. We tried to understand from an astrological perspective the struggle of this country to find its own identity, after the dissolution of the Soviet Union. We also particularly focused on the Moon, as the representative of the Ukrainian people.

In this article we are going to talk about the natal chart of Russia. We will try to understand what are the deep reasons dwelling in the Russian folk-soul that led to the current situation. And we are also going to highlight a very interesting relationship between Putin’s Pluto, the ascendant-descendant of Russia and the Moon of Ukraine.

Please note that there doesn’t seem to be a unique opinion among astrologers regarding the chart of the Russian Federation. This makes things even more difficult to grasp, so I invite you to take this article just as a possible astrological contribution on the matter. Again, I am not a geopolitical expert.

The Russian-Ukraine Crisis — Failure of an Individuation Process

Reading Time : 7 minutes

War is always a failure. We are all shocked about what’s happening in Ukraine those days. Our thoughts and prayers goes to the souls of the fallen and their families. May the spiritual world welcome them with love.

I am not a geopolitics expert. As an astrologer, what I can do to make a deeper sense out of what’s happening in Europe is to look—as always—at the sky. This article is meant to be a humble contribution in this sense.

As you can imagine, in order to understand what’s happening we need to look at the Natal Chart of Ukraine. By doing so, we’ll get to know a little bit better this country as a spiritual being. Understanding the potential of the chart, we’re going to be able to recognize how it’s been triggered these days, as well as in the recent past.

Corona Virus and the Saturn-Pluto Conjunction: the situation in India

Reading Time : 5 minutes

Previously, we’ve talked about the Saturn-Pluto Conjunction for China and Italy. In this article we are going to discuss about the same issue in regards to India. We are going to focus not only on Saturn, that rules three important points related to health issues, but also on Mercury. Being in the Tenth House, Mercury activates issues related to the rule of democratic law. Let’s check it out.

Corona Virus and the Saturn-Pluto Conjunction: the situation in Italy

Reading Time : 4 minutes

Previously, we’ve talked about the Saturn-Pluto Conjunction for China. In this article we are going to tackle the same issue in regards to Italy. We are also going to compare the two situations, specifically by looking at their Moon. In fact, we are going to find an interesting correlation between the two, as they are both going to be receiving similar transits.

Now, we all know at this point that this is a pandemic. So, does it make any sense to consider the situation just for a single nation? The short answer is yes. Even though this is a world wide issue, we don’t have to forget that the outbreak hit first—and more violently—some nations and not others. Italy has been the first and most involved among the European countries, so it definitely has a leading role in fighting the outbreak.

Corona Virus and the Saturn-Pluto Conjunction: the situation in China

Reading Time : 6 minutes

In this article we are going to talk about the Corona Virus from an astrological perspective. This is going to be a series of articles. So, in this first post we are going to talk mainly about the outbreak in China. We are going to be using astrocartography and transits to see whether we can find some clues about what’s going on—and hopefully—what’s next.

Generally speaking I think the whole situation is related to the Saturn-Pluto conjunction we had on January 12, 2020. This conjunction is about (Saturn) boundaries, fear, control, taking responsibility and (Pluto) death, rebirth, deep transformation, and confronting evil.

At the moment, all these significations are clearly triggered on a worldwide scale: all nations are strengthening boundaries. They’re trying to take control over what’s going on. They are inducing fear in the population that is clearly confronting death—and—fear of death.

So let’s jump right into it by looking at the astrocartography map for the Saturn-Pluto conjunction.

Astrocartography Map for the Saturn-Pluto Conjunction

The Saturn-Pluto conjunction occurred on January 12 2020, and it perfected at 11:59 AM (EST +5:00). Astrocartography is able to tell us in which parts of the world this conjunction perfected close to the angles—the most powerful spots in an astrological chart.

At first glance we can see that the conjunction was particularly powerful in the spots close to the colored lines. The red line (AS, ascendant), green line (MC, midheaven), yellow line (DS, descendant) and light blue line (IC, imum coeli).
