RUSSIAN INVADES UKRAINE

Just before dawn on February 24, 2022, the Russian Federation led by President Vladimir Putin launched a full scale invasion on the sovereign country of Ukraine which inherently came with a nuclear threat of World War III.

The invasion immediately became a sensational news story of interest around the world. Protests against the war broke out in Russia and across the globe….

A mass wave of refugees fled Ukraine into Poland, Romania, Hungary, and beyond. Many expressed admiration or respect for Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy who was offered a chance to flee to safety but resolutely remained in Ukraine to fight with civilians to defend their country and their land.

The E.U., the U.K, the U.S., Canada, and Allies enforced sanctions on Vladimir Putin and oligarchs before sending troops to NATO countries neighboring Ukraine as well as ammunition in support. President Zelenskyy continued to request support from European allies as well as acceptance into NATO.

Global gas and oil prices and a European pipeline were affected, as well as financial market volatility.

What do the planets reveal?

The invasion began during a Last Quarter Sagittarius Moon, one of the most critical Moon positions squaring the Sun octile a triple conjunction in a Capricorn Stellium including Mars conjunct Vesta and Capricorn Rising. That is a lot of audacious, ambitious Fire energy just after the Sun joined Jupiter and Neptune (unbridled ambition) in Pisces. Jupiter was octile Pluto and Mercury was in a hard square to Uranus, which can trigger pressurized explosive energy which built up over time.

The Capricorn conjunction may indicate a rare type of powerful bravado of political alliances that is characteristic of remarkable strength that can endure for long periods of time under great pressure. However, it can also be associated with karmic consequences or a violent end. Also, the Pisces planets may indicate more of a delusional zeal with an excessive amount of explosive energy, but with no real structure or container – or end game.

There was an extraordinary amount of sextiles and octiles which, along with the intensified Sun square Moon and trigger happy Mercury square Uranus, equates to passive aggressive conflict which can be more powerful or intense than an external opposition aspect which was strangely missing.

The Pisces bunch may also relate to the outpouring of heartbreak and compassion toward people suffering in the Russia Ukraine conflict, especially persons who are associated with innocence such as young, confused Russian soldiers or Ukrainian civilians throwing molotov cocktails at a nuclear superpower or trying to push back Russian tanks with their bare hands as an attempt to defend their smaller country.

Venus was also in close conjunction with Mars and Vesta in Capricorn indicating intense conflict over political or state control of land. And Pluto, the planet of intensity, hidden power, or immense hidden wealth of an elite or government officials… wasn’t too far away in an octile to Jupiter.

Uranus, the planet of shock or unexpected events was also triggered by a square to Mercury. In fact, the invasion caught many by surprise.

The critical turning point of the Sagittarius Moon along with Jupiter in Pisces may be associated with explosive fire in the air, rockets, and missiles… (which may not have precision target aim until the Moon in Aquarius Feb 27.)

The Capricorn Stellium may be associated with geopolitical events, heavy machinery, violent assault, war and political conflict that is focused on material resources such as land. It may also indicate a collapse of an old sociopolitical structure (with the intention to establish a new order, possibly a new world order) along with a possible unexpected dethroning of a head of state around March 17-22. A powerful country or government may lose a conflict with an alliance that turns out to be unexpectedly more powerful or able to rally global support sometime around April 12. An upset victory may be ahead.

War propaganda, media disinformation, fake news stories that manipulate emotions, or hidden transfers of wealth may powerfully change the tide of public opinion or official decisions in a lasting or historical way.

The Pisces planets may symbolize chemicals, air pollution, nuclear pollution, fire in the sky, ocean, oil, gas, or inflation.

Mercury in Aquarius square Uranus in Taurus may give details about failed negotiations, communications technology, drone technology, cyber attacks, mobility of people (refugees), machinery, vehicles, air vehicles, or firefights on the ground.

Saturn in Aquarius octile Pallas in Aries may relate to a battle strategy that breaks the rules without concern for consequences or, war crimes.

Plenty of major planetary Square and Octile aspects involving empowered planets in conjunction occurred while the Sun and Jupiter were softened and unable (unwilling?) to deter conflict. Or, the excessive fiery aspect may indicate global alliances or the public may have even participated in instigating or fueling an invasion…. Pisces can be an invasive sign when hosting the powerful Sun and ambitious, zealous Jupiter with a conflict Moon in Sagittarius.

Either way, these aspects may explain why the start of the invasion occurred at this Cosmic point in history.

Russia Ukraine Conflict Predictions

Tensions between Russia and Ukraine may occur through October 2023, although intensity of the war may occur through or up until March 22, April 4 or 5, or June 17, 2022. (See details below.)

Ultimately, some type of success is likely and will end in celebration, but it may come through excruciating challenges, a prolonged stalemate, or a humbled surrender.

3 stelliums (powerful events) occur on an international level or come into global focus through the first two weeks of Pisces Season 2022 (Last week of Feb and first week of March.)

There may be 2 – 3 different international events occurring simultaneously, but all involve government control, global and local judicial rulings, issues of war crimes, control of land or property, material supply chain issues, issues of social equality, as well as strong, immovable courage and emotional triggers of compassion.

This powerful period in global events may be marked by shocking news or traumatic news images as well as…

fires, explosions, immense pressure or tension, government overreach, irrational and ambitious geopolitical expansion, intensified military operations, war propaganda, war crimes, raging fury, terrorist acts, suicide, mass violence, protests, chemicals, gas, fuel, downed aircraft, vehicular violence, air pollution, food and supply shortages, extreme inflation or deflation, extraordinary courage, deep heart felt empathy, alliances of compassion, charity, censorship, redacted or blocked communications, cyber attacks, and cybersecurity. Sanctions may fail.

With Saturn in Aquarius, negotiations or paperwork required by alliances may be excruciatingly slow with plenty of reality checks along the way; but success is likely if dedication can be sustained over the long term.

February 27

The Sun octile the Capricorn Stellium, and the near Dark Moon in Aquarius transited a series of hard aspects including a square to Uranus. Volatile tension that may be at a breaking point.

Edit: Vladimir Putin put nuclear deterrents on high alert, threatening the use of nuclear weapons against Ukraine in response to NATO sanctions and threats.

March 1

Conflict on all fronts between geopolitical alliances may heat up through March 6, or there may be the beginning of a collapse in global power or an official structure.

Negotiations may be slow or stall March 1 – 6, while strategic planning takes place behind the scenes.

March 2

The Sun and New Moon Pisces Stellium octile the Capricorn conjunctions may indicate a blockage or stalling in military operations. But intense conflict continues or heavy strategic organization is occurring behind the scenes for an upcoming operation.

Edit [March 2, 2022]: “The US believes a 40-mile-long Russian military convoy outside of Kyiv is ‘stalled,’ a senior US defense official told reporters Wednesday. ‘They are not moving at any rate that would lead one to believe they’ve solved their problems. So we would characterize it as stalled.

Edit [March 5, 2022]: “‘We also have indications that the Ukrainians have struck the convoy elsewhere and on vehicles,’ Pentagon spokesman John Kirby says. ‘We do believe the actions of the Ukrainians have stalled that convoy, certainly slowed it down, stopped it in some places.'” “But he says the Russian military convoy has also been slowed because of its own challenges, like running out of gas and food for soldiers. ‘So they’ve also been plagued by their own missteps and stumbles,’ Kirby adds.”

Watch for war propaganda that uses emotional manipulation.

Mercury conjunct Saturn may indicate Jupiter and Capricorn ambitious or irrational geopolitical expansions may come with a verbal or online reality check. Mobility may be blocked. Uranus square Juno may correlate with blockages in communications technology or censorship. However, willpower and reserved control eventually leads to success.

Edit [March 2, 2022]: “In a rare emergency session, the UN General Assembly has approved a non-binding resolution condemning Russia for the invasion of Ukraine and demanding an immediate withdrawal.”

Edit [March 5, 2022]: “Ukraine Govt Won’t Let Civilians Leave Country Amid War”

Downed or blocked air or ground vehicles may lead to delusional ambition or some type of heavy or immense, powerful explosion.

Edit [March 4, 2022]: “‘We also have indications that the Ukrainians have struck the convoy elsewhere and on vehicles,’ Pentagon spokesman John Kirby says. ‘We do believe the actions of the Ukrainians have stalled that convoy, certainly slowed it down, stopped it in some places.'”

March 3

The Capricorn Stellium is at 27° which is the success degree, although success only occurs after long hard work that has enough integrity, self-control, and genuine passion to sustain it long term through relentless challenges.

The Pisces stellium is still octile the Capricorn stellium indicating increasing or deepening tensions and violent conflict. Uranus square Juno may indicate negotiations will not support progress, although new awareness or an unexpected event may occur.

The Capricorn conjunctions octile and sextile the Pisces Sun and Moon may indicate immense hidden power of an elite may block material resources, creating stress, but sanctions may fail.

Compassion drives slow, steady hard work to support the vulnerable, which has tremendous power. Travel plans or mobility are in favor although actions may be blocked or tension may be high.

Edit [March 3]: “A second round of Russia-Ukraine talks have ended in Belarus, with both sides agreeing on humanitarian corridors for civilians.” “US-Russia militaries create communication line.” Edit [March 4]: “Civilian evacuations in Ukrainian city of Mariupol are postponed as official says Russia is still shelling, despite agreed pause.” “Ukraine Alleges Evacuation Of Civilians Delayed Due To Russia’s Violation Of The Ceasefire”

March 4

The Sun and Jupiter conjunction at 14° during an Aries Moon: Negotiations are paramount as any aggression may increase tensions dramatically and lead to horrific suffering or structural damage. However, Mars in a Capricorn stellium at 27° and an Aries Moon indicates actions may be swift and effective, especially if related to an emergency rescue effort.

Edit [March 5]: “Zelenskyy to NATO: ‘All the people who die from this day forward will also die because of you, because of your weakness, because of your lack of unity,’ Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said in a nighttime address.”

Edit [March 4]: “Russian army is firing from all sides upon Zaporizhzhia NPP, the largest nuclear power plant in Europe. Fire has already broke out. If it blows up, it will be 10 times larger than Chernobyl! Russians must IMMEDIATELY cease the fire, allow firefighters, establish a security zone!” — Dmytro Kuleba#Ukraine tells IAEA that fire at site of #Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant has not affected ‘essential’ equipment, plant personnel taking mitigatory actions.” “On March 4, Russia seized Europe’s largest nuclear plant after fighting sparked a fire….” “Management at the nuclear power plant seized by Russia is working ‘at gunpoint,’ the company says, as energy watchdog warns of ‘fragile’ situation.”

March 5

The Sun conjunct Jupiter March 5 during an Aries Moon may involve an explosion, fire, or a gas, chemical, or nuclear event during a Sun Jupiter conjunction in Pisces. An oil resource may be involved, or Naval forces.

Edit [March 5]: “Russian forces have now seized two Ukrainian nuclear power plants and are advancing toward a third, Ukraine’s president said during a call with U.S. senators Saturday.”

“Airbnb users are booking stays with hosts in Ukraine to help send donations to those hit by the war in Ukraine.”

Venus and Mars octile Sun and Jupiter; Mercury octile Pallas: Material supplies, material needs, combat artillery may be blocked, vehicles and a battle strategy may be stalled or blocked, all of which increases tension. Hope may be deflating.

Edit [March 5]: “Doctors Without Borders says the humanitarian situation in Mariupol is currently ‘catastrophic.’ The population has problems with access to drinking water. In addition, the city is running out of food, there is no electricity and energy supply.”

Edit [March 5]: “It’s been three days since Pentagon first called the long Russian military convoy outside Ukraine’s capital ‘stalled.’ Many now wondering where the Russian soldiers are. U.S. officials think ‘something must be wrong.”

Edit [March 5] “Republican Senators Marco Rubio & Steve Daines tweeted photos of their zoom mtg with #Zelensky. ALL on the zoom call were told to keep quiet about the meeting.”

March 6

March 6 may witness a change in conflict as an exact Mars Venus conjunction (octile Jupiter) shifts from Capricorn to Aquarius. For example, a ground war may focus on the sky, space satellite, or the internet or new technology such as drones. Or, the weaponization of finances and trade [sanctions] may become more prominent.

There may be a powerful desire for a new regime change.

Bicycle Volunteers Deliver Essentials To The Vulnerable In Ukrainian City Of Mykolaiv

After weeks of bombardment and delays, progress is being made in efforts to evacuate civilians from the port city of Mariupol, the Ukrainian president’s office said on Friday. Nearly 500 civilians have been rescued in a United Nations-led operation, said Andriy Yermak, who heads the office of President Volodymyr Zelenskyy. He announced the figures in a post on Telegram, adding that Kyiv will “do everything to save all its civilians and military” stuck in the heavily damaged city that is almost completely under the control of Russian forces. The UN is set to send in a new convoy later on Friday in an effort to rescue hundreds more civilians who remain trapped in the city’s Azovstal steel plant. Despite Russia’s announcement of a three-day daytime ceasefire, fighting reportedly has continued at the complex. The UK Defense Ministry confirmed that Russian forces are carrying out a ground assault on the Azovstal steel plant in Mariupol, despite claims from Moscow that it only seeks to seal off the plant. In an update posted on Twitter, the UK Defense Ministry said the efforts to seize the plant “come at a personnel, equipment and munitions cost to Russia.” The ministry added that the push to capture Azovstal is a likely bid by Russian President Vladimir Putin “to have a symbolic success in Ukraine” linked to the upcoming May 9 Victory Day commemorations. On Thursday evening, the Ukrainian government said Russian forces had infiltrated the site and were shelling the site. Moscow denied that its troops were storming the plant. Ukrainian forces and hundreds of civilians are still holed up in the plant, which has faced heavy shelling for weeks. A new UN convoy is set to evacuate more civilians from the besieged plant later on Friday. — DW News

Assault from unexpected source overthrows “many carefully designed plans” [La Volasfera by Sepharial]

An evil plan is foiled or dangerous trap avoided but forever enemies. Cyberwarfare, censorship, propaganda, transportation, roads, bridges in conflict. Long-lasting isolation or separation between family, friends, alliances, cultures. Contentious relationships. Memories. Change your thinking. Self-inflicted harm. An isolated bully with a short temper. Envy, conceit, slander, character assassination.

DECEPTIVE KINDNESS

Much flattery or kind words, very few actual friends. Hidden motives, things you can’t see, ‘in the dark,’ eye problems for some. Sacrifice, generosity, or virtue used for manipulation purposes. Avoid people on a mission from God. Gullibility and trusting wrong people results in disappointment, loss, suffering. Giving too much leads to poverty. Deceit, abandonment.

A DEEP WOUND

Repressed violence unleashed without regard to consequences. Sudden or unexpected attack. Fires, heat, water incident. A hated person prone to combat rather than negotiations. Arrogant self-righteousness or superiority complex, spiritual or political ideologies useless in the real world, ambitious or greedy authoritarian. Anarchy, violence, extremism, manipulation as a cover for lack of excellence. Anxiety, self-doubt, envy, manipulation, never satisfied.

Taking up arms to face violence.

Deep internalized pain, past trauma, distress, ILLNESS, emergency room nurse, first responders, buried bodies. Confiscation of assets, imprisonment, betrayal, loss of “friends.” A violent death or suicide possible. Death and rebirth. Metamorphosis. With loss, something new begins.

Emotional security, food security, material support from powerful alliances, harmony between groups. Satisfaction of hard work achieved, joy in completing tasks, peace at home. Choose mercy and diplomacy without sacrificing justice or personal standards. Sink or swim.

UNCONVENTIONAL INSIGHT

Success may come through DESTRUCTION rather than “peace.”

Conflict in communications, media, education, logistics, exchange, trade, or transportation. Real control is confidence to relax control. A powerful new start leads to fortune but requires extraordinary faith, an unconventional career, extreme patience, self-control. Joy in humble, mundane tasks, sticking to a budget. Must remain dedicated to a noble alliance or diplomatic negotiations. Shifts or inventions in wheat, gold, or metal. Many roads, sidetracked by desires, missed opportunity.

Edit [May 17, 2022] “Russian parliament will consider a ban on exchanging Azov POWs for captured Russian soldiers, Russian state-controlled RIA Novosti reported. On May 26, the Russian Supreme Court will consider recognizing the Azov regiment as a terrorist organization.” — @KyivIndependent

Edit [May 17, 2022] “The operation to rescue UA military from Azovstal will continue until their full return home from uncontrolled territory. Ukraine was forced to exchange wounded UA servicemen in Mariupol for Russian POWs, as there was no other way to save them.” — Maliar (Deputy Defense Minister)

Edit [May 17, 2022] “The Azovstal defenders pinned Russian forces in Mariupol until Ukraine won in Kharkiv. Encirclement of Kyiv’s troops in Donbas is now highly unlikely. Their contribution to the county’s freedom is immense. Their sacrifice should be celebrated as heroic. It will become historic.” — @MaxRTucker

This powerful energy in alliances can be used for different purposes. It’s vital to keep your head clear and avoid conflict, if possible.
