We are aware that Russia is in deep trouble in terms of their finances and yesterday their currency Ruble took a beating against the dollar.
I will this time for a change analyse the Russia formation chart from western astrology and see how the event is explained in the chart.
Following is the foundation chart taken from the book of world horoscopes.
House Cusp Degree
1st 11 Ta 29′ 22.76″
2nd 11 Ge 25′ 33.38″
3rd 28 Ge 41′ 40.94″
4th 14 Cn 10′ 31.96″
5th 02 Le 36′ 49.95″
6th 03 Vi 01′ 31.50″
7th 11 Sc 29′ 22.76″
8th 11 Sg 25′ 33.38″
9th 28 Sg 41′ 40.94″
10th 14 Cp 10′ 31.96″
11th 02 Aq 36′ 49.95″
12th 03 Pi 01′ 31.50″
The above chart is chalet chart and tropical (i:e. Without ayanamsa) which is used in western astrology. We should first understand that 2nd house deals with finances, economic indices of all nature, wealth of the country, etc. So we need to first understand whether the country is prone to such setbacks. Here, the 2nd house does not have any planets and 2nd house lord is Mercury. Mercury is placed in the 10th house. The 10th house denotes government. This shows that there will be frequent government in managing the finances. Mercury is quincunx Neptune, opposition Pluto and semi-square Uranus. Further, the 2nd house cusp at 11 Gemini 25 is in exact square to Uranus. So the chart indicates trouble in finances.
Now, we need to identify the timing with respect to the transit of planets v/s the natal positions of planets and house cusps. We will take the transit positions as on December 16, 2014 to compare with the natal positions.
The transit Mercury just entered Capricorn and getting closer to conjunction. In transit, Jupiter the planet for finances and lord of 10th and 11th is in exact quincunx to Natal Mercury lord of 2nd house. Further, Jupiter is retrograde in transit adding fuel to fire. Transit North node (Rahu) is in square to natal Mercury. Transit Pluto in Capricorn is in exact quincunx to natal 2nd house cusp. Transit Neptune is in square to natal 2nd house cusp.
Though above study is a post mortem analysis, it gives you a very good insight into the connection of astrology with the country’s finances.
