Hello and welcome. This is Captain Aquarius, coming to you on September 30, 2017 with an announcement about Aquarian Airlines flight 105, headed for Moscow at the Full Moon on October 5.
We’ll also look at the birth chart and astral maps of the world leader whose birthday is eleven days after the Full Moon, and who now increasingly emerges as perhaps the most impactful geopolitical strategist of our time.
September 30 is important because this is the annual date when American politicians have to find a way to agree on how much money they are going to borrow from the Federal Reserve so the American government can keep operating for another year.
They hate doing this so much that this year President Donald Trump cut through all the chicken games by offering top Democrats a deal without clearing it first with the shocked, flabbergasted leaders of his own party. The legislators agreed to raise the US national debt ceiling to 19 trillion dollars. Welcome to the Chaos Hour in the American reality TV of 2017.
The debt ceiling is fiction. It is an imaginary number that is designed to reassure the people of the country that someone is actually minding the store and is making an effort to ensure that the national debt is somehow under control. The reality, as you know, is that the debt will never be repaid, because the whole point of the debt-based financial system created by the Khazarian bankers is to ensure that the debt will grow until the banking cartel owns everything from Park Place to Pluto.
The debt ceiling, and the idea that the debt can be repaid, are as substantial and real as the Tooth Fairy, Santa Claus and the pearly gates through which devout religious believers imagine that they are going to enter the kingdom of heaven and play harps of gold forever and ever.
How much is $19 trillion dollars? Think of it this way. Total up the number of days that have passed from the year One until now. Multiply two thousand and seventeen years by three hundred and sixty five days, you get some 731,000 days. If you divide $19 trillion by 731,000, then what you get is $26 million dollars for every day since Jesus was born.
You’ve no doubt heard the famous statement that there are two ways to enslave a nation: by the sword, and through debt. The man who said this was not John Adams, the second president of the United States, but John G. Adams. He is all but forgotten now, but in 1953, he was the famous military counsel who defended his fellow officers from charges by Senator Joseph McCarthy that the senior officer corps of the United States Army was infested by communists.
John G. Adams gave his warning about debt in the year the CIA overthrew the democratically elected government of Mohamed Mossadegh in Iran and installed the Shah, eight years before Dwight D. Eisenhower warned his country about the danger of the military industrial complex, and ten years before John F. Kennedy was assassinated for issuing an executive order that the Federal Reserve be abolished, and the National bank of the United States be reestablished as a public governmental agency. The reckoning for all of it is at hand.
Make no mistake about it. We are nearing the time when the entire structure of financial chicanery is about to disintegrate. One sure sign of it was the recent statement by Jamie Dimon, CEO of J. P. Morgan Chase, the largest of the big four American banks, that Bitcoin and other virtual currencies are a “fraud.” The extreme irony of this, that an arch-fraudster and criminal should accuse anyone else of fraud, has been noticed here and there. What will soon be more noticed is what Mr. Dimon’s desperate attack really says: that the banksters and the rest of the corporatist archons are losing it, and must now try everything to shore up for a little longer the illusion that they are still in control.
How is all of this – the fall of the baking cartel and the empowerment of broad-based creative community — reflected in the Full Moon chart that we see here? It is cast for Moscow, Russia on October 5 at 9:40 pm.
Aries Full Moon of 2017: Oct. 5 at 9:40 pm in Moscow, Russia
The major leverage of change begins in the top center of the chart, where the Moon in the sign of Aries, the hunter, the initiator and impetuous attacker, is opposite to the Libra Sun conjunct Mercury at the bottom of the chart. At the left, the Ascendant at 10° of the sign of Cancer is in a 90° square to the two great lights, and at the right side of the chart in the seventh house, the planet Pluto is in a loose opposition to the Ascendant and 90° “squares” to the Moon and Sun. This means that these four points on the chart constitute a Grand Cross of four 90° angles, and thus propel overdue change.
Notice also that to the left of the Aries Moon in the eleventh House is the planet Uranus, the bringer of change, the revolutionary, the magician and trickster, creator of surprising and magical effects. He is in opposition to Jupiter, the money, the bank, and the established institutions of wealth and power, in Libra. The opposition between these two, which we noted in our Sept. 20 Black Moon video, and which was exact on Sept. 28, two days before the latest debt ceiling trick, is still potent, although it is gradually dissolving as Jupiter moves forward in his orbit. This fading opposition reflects the recent financial conflict, shadowboxing and foolishness by politicians and financial powers.
Another important element in the chart also involves the volatile and surprising Uranus, in the Grand Trine that we have been watching for months. Uranus in the eleventh house, in Aries, is at roughly 120° from the Moon’s North Node in the third house in the sign of Leo, and Saturn in the sign of Sagittarius in the sixth house. The alliance of these three, particularly the trine between the Moon’s Node and Saturn, offers us way to cooperate and communicate for purposes of being co-creative in a spirit of synarchy, that is, shared power among equals rather than the powerlessness of people squirming under an oppressive hierarchy.
Please take a look at Saturn, who is gradually moving forward in his orbit into a tighter 90° square with Chiron the Wounded Healer, who looks like the letter K in the 10th house of the chart. That’s why we can anticipate that the reckoning for current mistakes, denials and evasions is likely to be coming not right away, but around November 6th. More about this when we look at next month’s powerful Full Moon in Scorpio.
Lastly for this chart, we look at the position of Pluto at 16° of Capricorn. We are going to take this current planet position and apply it to the chart of Vladimir Putin, the president of Russia, who will turn 65 this month. Putin is being attacked and hated by so many vicious and corrupt people, who blame him for their every mistake and crime, that it is time now to look more closely at the birth chart and astrocartography maps of this very important geopolitical figure.
Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin was born on October 16, 1952 at 9:30 PM in what was then still Leningrad, and had not yet reverted to being St. Petersburg, Russia. We begin this look at his chart in the 11th house of friends, community, social activity and social activism, including among other things the way that we network and publicize ourselves through social media and other ways of broadcasting images and ideas.
Vladimir Putin: Oct. 16, 1952 at 9:30 am UZT in St. Petersburg, Russia
Putin has a brilliant combination of his Libra Sun, Neptune and Saturn all in a close triple conjunction here, meaning that he has a serious, businesslike demeanor that is lightened by flashes of humor – both of these traits are Saturnian — and is very likely to be a master of creating fantasy images of himself and images as well of the power and majesty of this country.
Like the famous Princess Diana, another person who had a powerful Neptune position in her chart, and created dazzling images of herself as an ideal object of fantasy and beauty, Putin too is a genius in manipulating media more brilliantly than anyone since Napoleon Bonaparte, who had himself painted heroically on horseback, but lived centuries before another memester would be Photoshopped into riding sharks, eagles, dinosaurs and unicorns.
Notice also that Saturn, at 18° of Libra in the 11th house, is in a tight 90° square with Uranus, the revolutionary and bringer of change who is in the ninth house of institutions of authority and power. This means that Putin will very likely be a figure similar to Peter the Great, to whom he is often compared as one who wants to bring about widespread changes faster than others want to accept them.
But unlike Peter, who attempted to create change at a pace that stupefied his backward country, Putin is attempting to do the same thing on a global scale and is meeting fierce, predictable resistance.
In the first house of the chart, Venus in Scorpio is in a very tight 120° trine with the Moon in the 10th house of his profession, and of the way in which we are known in the world. It will not surprise us, then, to see Putin presenting himself in images that are sexy and exciting. He can’t miss, really. His Ascendant is in Scorpio, the discreet if not furtive sign of espionage and codes, so that like Louis XIV, another artist of opacity, Putin excels at concealing himself while getting others to expose themselves, and plays the sexual magnetism card to maximum effect.
Note also the position of the North Moon’s Node, the horseshoe-shaped symbol at 19° of the revolutionary sign of Aquarius in the third house of communications. This Moon’s Node, the gathering and strengthening force in group relationships, is in a 120° trine with Putin’s triple solar conjunction in Libra, so he uses the state-of-the-art medium of Russia TV to present himself as an agent of beneficial change, fighting to free his country and his allies from financial strangulation by the Khazarian banking cartel. Where do those pinstriped felons appear in his chart? In the predictable place, where Jupiter in the money sign of Taurus, in his 7th house, opposes his Venus, which places the banksters in the uncomfortable position of trying in vain to seduce a man who can outseduce anybody.
Now for the nuance of timing that makes 2017 through 2020 the climactic make-or-break years for Putin and those who are for or against him. Do you remember the current position on Pluto at 16° of the sign of Capricorn that we looked at a little while ago in the Full Moon chart? Well, take that planet and place him now in the same spot, just inside the third house of Putin’s birth chart at 16° of Capricorn, and notice the tremendous planet relationships that will form next year, when Pluto gets to 18° of Capricorn.
Count ‘em. Pluto will come into an exact 180° opposition with Uranus, the bringer of change in the 9th house, an exact and very empowering 120° trine with Jupiter in his 7th house, and a 90° square with Saturn in Libra in his 11th house. All three combinations are coming at the same time through all of 2018, because Pluto moves very slowly in his 248-year orbit, and his transits last long and work deep.
As Pluto keeps moving ahead slowly in 2019 and 2020, you can see how many aspects of death and regeneration, most of them very favorable to him, Pluto will form with planets in the 21° and 22° positions of their respective signs. Does all of this mean we can expect to see Putin facing formidable challenges and overcoming them with increasing success in the years to come? You can bet your dacha on it.
Right now, in October of 2017 we are in the 75th anniversary of the famous battle of Stalingrad in what the Russians call the Great Patriotic War. The siege and countersiege of Stalingrad lasted from August 1942 to January 1943, when what was left of the German 6th Army was marched off to Siberia after the Russians had achieved the astonishing success of capturing an entire German army, and achieving what is now recognized as the turning point of World War II.
2017 and 2018 are the 75th anniversary of these heroic events. Is it likely that Putin is going to play these months for maximum publicity effect? The answer is clear in both his chart and his astrocartography maps. We’ll look at only a couple of them here, excerpted from my book Maps of Power, which shows why Putin’s maps are uncannily accurate for not only Russia, but for the Middle East, China, the centers of power in the USA, and Western Europe.
Vladimir Putin: North Russia
In this map of northern Russia, we see within range of Putin’s birthplace in St. Petersburg a dark red Pluto line that spells ambition and an appetite for big risks, and is a perfect match for his early career as a spook in the KGB. Even closer to St. Petersburg is a green line of Mercury the communicator, defining along with the Pluto line Putin’s position as a man who reveals everything that is entertaining while concealing what is vital.
Stronger in its effect is the royal blue Jupiter line of governmental power east of Moscow, running in close parallel to the powder blue Venus line that embodies Putin’s attractive force as a manifestor of his own heroic myth. Also relevant here is the gray Moon line farther east, the Goddess line aiming upward to the Soul. One thing that makes Putin’s position very strong and believable among his own people is that he doesn’t just fake love of country for photo shoots. He means it, as a man of sincere patriotism and religious faith.
It is fascinating to see where these advantageous blue lines go when we see Putin’s map of southern Russia.
Vladimir Putin: South Russia and Turkey
They both go through western Turkey, his Jupiter line very close to Istanbul, so Putin will likely have an easier time with the Turks than any Russian ruler ever. His Venus line runs west and within range of the city that is now called Volgograd, but was once Stalingrad. Can we expect vivid patriotic spectacle in and about this place next month and through January? You bet.
For more on this, and what we hope will be an entertaining way to cover it, you can tune in to the monthly astrology class that Michael Morris and I will teach in Pisac, Peru right on the night of the Full Moon: Thursday Oct. 5 at 5:00 pm in Peru time, which is equal to US central time.
