Putin’s chart is contested by many. Nevertheless, it seems quite interesting that the reported time (astro.com) gives us an MC at 21 Leo, with Pluto angular. He might really be going through a destabilising square of Uranus to his natal MC-Pluto-South Node conjunction.
Prigozhin’s natal Mars and Uranus act strongly on Putin’s Meridian axis. No wonder why, during Prigozhin’s Uranus waning square phase (62 years of age) the long connection between him and Putin suddenly crumbles (I haven’t found Prigozhin’s birth time, so I’m using a noon chart with no angles here). The current Mars-Uranus square, whose seed was the conjunction of July-August 2022, is currently awakening strong rebellious energies. I have written in the past that Putin’s chart is going through a Progressed New Moon conjunct his natal Mars. At the same time, his Progressed Moon is at a maximum in Declination, a fact which generally coincides with major turning points in life.
Let’s keep in mind that, as I wrote in previous articles and posts, Russia is heading towards another major rebirth, as the current Saturn-Neptune cycle comes to an end. For decades, astrologer André Barbault wrote a lot about that.
However, we should consider that every rebirth entails struggle and crisis, and it can be colossal when it involves a whole nation.
Also, the recent Mars-Pluto opposition represented the ‘culmination’ and possible turning point for the Ukrainian war. Zelenskyy’s chart has its Meridian axis across 20 degrees of Fixed Leo/Aquarius. This adds one more layer of importance to the major activation of pivotal charts which the current Mars-Uranus waxing square is triggering. The aspect is still applying, and this is a major astrological shakeup.
With Uranus, the results are always uncertain, and the development of circumstances is quite erratic. Nevertheless, when this planets acts strongly on mundane affairs, power struggles and insurrectionism are part of the picture. Several news agencies have been echoing Prigozhin’s s statement about the ‘start of a Russian civil war’. The big question is: if Prigozhin’s attempted coup ever succeeds, what kind of Russia will emerge from such a dangerous military takeover?
