On February 24, 2022, Putin authorized the invasion of Ukraine. Although the Russian president’s birth time is not known, and his date of birth is also in doubt, the fact remains that the man’s birth chart suits him like a glove but perplexes the astrologer who would have liked to advise the politician as to the relevance of going to war in this way. The two graphs below show the apparent course of the major planets according to a 90º grid and another of 120º. The first is generally perceived as describing more of the key moments of existence.
At the outbreak of hostilities, the most striking transits on Putin’s chart are :

Putin’s aggressiveness also seemed at its height with Mars having just passed through a biannual cycle on :

At a glance, the retrogradation of Saturn, thus walking around three times in front of natal Pluto, does not bode well for the success of the war enterprise. Despite trines to natal Sun and Saturn, transits of Saturn over Pluto usually indicate a depletion of resources or difficulty using them well. This is an important reality check. On the other hand, this Uranus in opposition to Venus indicates the man ready to change his life, divorce the world, and possibly spontaneously or proudly modify his alliances. Uranus moving during the year towards a conjunction with Jupiter : should we think of an exaggerated behaviour, a swelling of the self ?
In April 2023, Neptune will be in square with Mars (in sector VI), suggesting loss of energy, possibly health. The vital spark could be put to the test. This interpretation is no doubt coloured by my negative bias towards the dictator. Many astrologers have more subtly analyzed and contextualized this February event. However, we seem to agree that the game is far from won.
Besides, how was it going on Zelenskyy’s side ?

The politician faces his destiny, Saturn brushing the Midheaven and opposing the Moon, symbol par excellence of the homeland, ancestral roots. Mars also seemed ready for war in the vicinity of Pluto, which will… in April 2023… make a major opposition to native Mars. During this spring of 2023, Uranus will oppose its natal position as much as it will be in square with the Moon. As a general rule, we agree that the stars favour Zelenskyy, particularly because he has a younger, more open nature. However, the theme is not free from struggles.
The destinies of the two men, probably those of their respective countries and perhaps even that of the planet, seem to find dramatic resolutions in six months. Very clever, whoever knows how to make the celestial rhythm speak. After all, if everyone helps each other, heaven will also help us…
So let’s wish everyone well and that our weak prayers will be enough to light the torch of lasting peace.
