Kazakhstan December 16, 1991 14:00 GMT Alma-Ata, Kazakhstan; ASC 29Cap45; MC-IC 12:41 Aries-Libra (critical degrees); Sun 24Sag01 in 5th h; Moon 19Ari51 10th h; unaspected Pluto 21Sco35 5th h (foreign control); Prenatal Solar Eclipse (July 11, 1991) 11 South 18Can58.
11 South themes: old ideas/methods fail, new systems needed to deal with events; any blocks could be violently or tragically removed (Brady). Set up specifically for money laundering ventures and other financial crimes, was it?
Last 11 South Eclipse: July 22, 2009 29Can26--conjunct Kazakhstan's natal Ascendant.
See the BBC Timeline of Kazakhstan history which includes four events in 2009 (check out the French action).
Is it curious that two descriptive asteroids are angular in the Kazakhstan independence chart? They are Nemesis Rx rising @29Cancer and Panacea at the critical-degreed Midheaven. Banking Jupiter (also plays The Politician) is in the 2nd house of Money and Values and traveling with asteroid Cupido which contains several archetypes within, any of which may apply: The Family (religious, criminal, or other type of large organization), Corporatism, the Criminal Underworld. Actually, the word 'mafia' comes to mind.
Interesting that all the transiting planets now in Saturn-ruled Capricorn are snugged within the chart's 6th house with the national North Node 9Cap57, Uranus 12Cap47, and Neptune 15Cap39, the 'Enlightenment Planets' shown as they were lining up for their three Great Conjunction/s in 1993 @18Capricorn: smug or strong-armed paternalism...POLITICAL POWER..."The Union Jack Flies from a British Destroyer." And with transit Pluto @18Capricorn off and on these days, the trio forms the stark midpoint picture: 'the big picture commands a certain course of action, very little option to do otherwise' (Noel Tyl).
And on this towering financial topic we then look to the upcoming Solar Eclipse due on August 11, 2018 @19Leo in the 2 New North Saros Series, the themes of which mimic the meaning of Tarot card #16, The Tower which collapses in a cloud of dust. Perhaps 2 New North eclipse energies refer to the global economic system on course for demolition and rebuilding in The Dragon's image, and/or, on another level, to Donald Trump's much touted, now weakened 'empire' of gilt and illusion. After all, some Trump buildings have been taking 'TRUMP' off their facades for a while now in vain attempts to hide past links to the man. And personally, I don't blame them. Do you?
