Just as we receive news about Russia’s agreement with Belarus to set up a joint task-force, an interesting picture emerges. Belarus obtained its independence on August 25th 1991 (Nick Campion, The Book of World Horoscopes), with Mars at 25 degrees of Virgo. This puts the planet in between the American chart’s Gemini and Russian chart’s Sagittarius Mars placements. The current Mars – Neptune square which, as I wrote in Mars contra-parallel Stationary Pluto, is likely to infuriate this conflict even more, will trigger all these charts. Also, Belarus’ progressed Mars has reached 16 degrees of Libra. The current Full Moon, which brings with it a destabilizing warring tone, falls in opposition to that. With Jupiter conjunct the Ascendant, there may be a sense of ‘duty’ and self-aggrandisement, possibly boosted by the idea of a ‘supportive’ Russia which can eventually lead Belarus into this conflict.
These are extremely unstable days, and they can irreversibly affect global security if no diplomacy is exercised.
