NATO & Russia – battle lines being drawn

NATONato Russiaeu russiaus russia


NATO’s plans to deploy military units to Eastern Europe in numbers unmatched since the Cold War are pitched as a defensive measure to protect against further incursions by the Russians. The Russians, including former premier Gorbachev, say it is an offensive measure.

After Moscow’s seizure of Crimea in 2014 and military intervention in Ukraine there has been growing unease in NATO’s Baltic member countries, where the ranks of civilian volunteer militias has swelled, and the politicians and populations seem to consider war with Russia a real possibility. A US state department spokesman said: ‘“A Europe whole, free, and at peace rises or falls with Ukraine.” “Ukraine’s frontline for freedom is ours as well.”

Others see Europe’s security crises as part of a return to regional power struggles, as well as an anti-globalization movement, which has rejuvenated nationalism worldwide. “Everything is connected; basically what we are seeing is the collapse of the world order as we have known it since World War II, and we — politicians, intel and security agencies — still struggle to understand it.”

Lovely, something else to worry about.

The NATO chart, 24 Aug 1949 11.42am Washington, DC, does look edgy in Feb 2017 when tr Uranus squares the Mars in Cancer, which will be a shock leading to insecurity and perhaps hasty decisions. It’ll be considerably worse in 2018/19 with tr Pluto opposition Mars and Solar Arc Saturn square Pluto also in 2018. This September’s Virgo Solar Eclipse will conjunct the NATO Moon Saturn in Virgo bringing a time of weighty responsibilities, where the price for actions has to be paid.

The NATO/Russia 1917 relationship chart is panicky and suspicious with the Virgo Eclipse conjunct the composite Neptune for a few months ahead; but it really starts to agitate from Feb 2017 onwards, destabilising badly from April 2017 for eighteen months thereafter with tr Uranus square the composite Pluto and conjunct Uranus. Intensifying as tr Pluto hits on those planets and not really settling till after 2022/23.

The USA interface with Russia is in disarray through the next few years with tr Pluto square the composite Uranus Pluto till late 2017. Tr Saturn is in a separating square to the composite Sun Saturn this autumn; with an undermining tr Neptune to follow in 2017/18; and an edgy, explosive tr Uranus square Mars in 2018.

The EU/Russia relationship chart has much the same though involving different planets – a complete turnaround in diplomatic relations through 2015 continues till the end of this year; with serious confrontations come Jan 2017, worsening through to late 2018 with tr Pluto square Saturn Mars. As well as tr Saturn square tr Neptune in hard aspect to the composite Sun, which in Neptune’s case runs till early 2018.

The Ukraine chart, 24 Aug 1991 2.31pm Kiev, looks under assault at the moment with Solar Arc Sun conjunct Mars; nervy and strung-out this September; and on high-risk alert from early 2017 for two years; with 2021 looking very trapped, enraged and dominated by forces beyond their control. Their relationship with Russia is blocked at the moment, sagging badly in 2017; with a tussle for the upper hand ongoing; panicky and unstable right through 2018.

  1. larryc, you make some good points. It’s just a pity that most people prefer knee-jerk reactions to events rather than give them some considered thought. Or even ignore events altogether. Wisdom seems to be in short supply, but that’s nothing new.

  2. Marjorie, this entire, sprawling mess, egged on by juvenile attitudes and politicians who seem to be children in adult bodies, make me despair. You noted that an anti-globalisation element was contributing to the chaos. I recall that a few years ago you wrote that you thought that there was a chance of globalisation being “unpicked”. Maybe this is what you saw in whatever charts you were reading at that time. It’s just a pity that it seems to be being unpicked in such a dangerous way.
    Many thanks for your observations, awful though they are.

    • Chris – it’s been discussed that the next decade or so will look to be quite messy, irrelevant of attitudes and politicians. Yes, the mechanics of astrology are there, turning wheels – some folk are ground under the wheels, yet others can delay or avoid being ground up…to a point. Altho we have free will, some events are inevitable. People can blame it on bad luck, the punishments from GOD, global warming. Likewise for juvenille attitudes and childish politicians.

      • I sometimes wonder whether the astrological influence home in on whoever will pick up the mood of the moment best and raise them to prominence – not because they are best, just because they are the human manifestation of whatever – chaos, idiocy, catalysts for war, for positive change (some hope!). Cometh the hour, cometh the man (non-genderised)
