We have been witnessing an extraordinary example of Aquarian ideological awakening: I am going to write something about Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
Astrodatabank reports his chart as follows:
The entire world is looking at the unprecedented actions of Russia, which has suddenly brought our time back to the 1940s, or at least it feels like that. In fact, the unbelievable amount of political and military pressure which has been generated all over Europe by their premeditated invasion of Ukraine has suddenly brought the entire continent into a very dark place. The risk of further escalations is huge, and a domino effect is what all countries seem to be avoiding at this time, thankfully. In the midst of such climate, we find the central figure of a former comedian, Volodymyr Zelenskyy. As I always say, political figures are simply human manifestations of deeper archetypal dynamics, representing the larger collective scenario. Different political figures are generally representations of the very same opposing archetypes which generate all kinds of social battles in history. In this article we will be looking at the fundamental archetypal images awakened by this person, leaving behind all sorts of political and ideological controversies which are not a primary concern for our astrological analysis of the current large-scale social dynamics.
Zelenskyy has Gemini rising, which makes him a socially interactive individual. Jupiter in the first House seems to suggest strong idealism as well. His chart shows a prominent Sun-Venus superior conjunction (Venus is direct) at 5 Aquarius in the 9th House. The conjunction opposes Mars in early Leo. The opposition is transformed into a Fixed T-Square by Chiron in early Taurus in the 11th House. This particular configuration shows us a fighting spirit, an intensely ideological life path, along which he strives to find integration and connect with his own community. The 9th House placement of Sun and Venus symbolizes the international impact his actions and words are currently having, now that his Solar Arc Descendant has reached the same degrees of Aquarius. We can add the Moon-Uranus square to this whole picture, an aspect which symbolizes his constant search for inner security. With the Moon angular at the IC, we find a strong indication of his innate connection with the deepest wounds of his own territory, a land he seems to be ready to fight for. Zelenskyy has a clearly Aquarian chart, and it is likely that this figure has emerged into global awareness for a specific reason at this time.
Let’s not forget that the transit of Saturn through Aquarius has been addressing all sorts of humanitarian issues since early 2021, when heavy censorship was enacted overseas. At the same time, the long dichotomy between the enactment of COVID restrictions and the establishment of greater freedom has characterized the headlines throughout the Saturn-Uranus waning square. Now that Venus and Mars get ready to move synchronously into Aquarius, the world is preparing itself for another uprising of Aquarian energy. The Venus-Mars transit over the degree in which Jupiter and Saturn met each other in December 2020 suggests the arrival of a massive wave of humanitarian awareness. Incredibly enough, so many nations have expressed solidarity to Zelenskyy over the last few days, obviously angering Russia even more. This is a clear manifestation of the Aquarian energy I am writing about in this article, and it prepares us for an important new chapter, which will start by the time Pluto reaches this sign. When Pluto enters Aquarius, we will flash back to the late 1700s, the last time it was there. It will not be a surprise if dictatorships will be overthrown, with massive revolutionary movements developing worldwide. The act of unseating despotism will be everybody’s concern over the years to come. Also, in November 2020 I published “The Eurozone Under Stress”, where I specified that the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction in Aquarius would soon trigger huge changes for the European Union. Definitely, a new chapter for the union will start between now and next year’s arrival of Pluto into Aquarius.
What is most striking is that Saturn is about to enter Zelenskyy’s 10th House. The timing of this transit depends on the accuracy of the reported time of birth. He is currently feeling a huge pressure from all sides, with Russia’s presence so close to him, but also the global attention directed unanimously towards his nation. Natal Saturn appears in Leo in the 4th House, an indication of his creative connection with the homeland. This placement addresses an ancestral lineage filled with regimented and difficult dynamics. His Jewish family, the Holocaust affecting some of his ancestors, his early relocation to foreign lands, as well as his grandfather serving in the Red Army are well represented in this planetary placement. Saturn is currently moving towards the second opposition to its natal place, which will occur within months. This may represent an important turning point for him and his country.
Nobody knows what the outcome of this war will be. It has arrived so suddenly, accompanied by a Venus-Mars-Pluto triple conjunction which falls upon the area of the zodiac in which Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto met one another in 2020. The seat of the recent crisis is in late Capricorn, the genesis of a historic wave of social contraction which has destabilized the entire world. As I wrote in “Mars – Pluto and the Pandemic“, the coming Mars-Pluto synod is likely to turn the page, bringing new issues to the forefront. It seems evident that the USA will be a prominent actor in the future developments which relate to this particular cycle, because the USA Pluto return coincides with the onset of this new 2-year Mars-Pluto cycle. In line with Andre’ Barbault’s famous studies, the coming Sun-Jupiter conjunction and Piscean New Moon of early March are already bringing a major opportunity for peace talks, with a possible ceasefire. I wrote about this possibility in a recent article called “Russia attacks Ukraine“. Whether this conjunction will be a definitive solution is not easy to determine. I guess we should just keep in mind that it will form a semi-square with Venus, Mars and Pluto in Capricorn, therefore it will not be entirely harmonious. It is quite likely that the compassionate side of the coming New Moon will make an impact on the current situation, bringing the world’s attention more intensely towards the humanitarian disaster which is currently unfolding.
