Sunday 6:45 pm: Okay, I give up:
Alexander Litvinenko's natal sunrise chart is posted at Lim's Limericks because Mr A.Cat and Lim have generously allowed it to be posted on their blog which makes sense what with Mr. A.Cat's former status as an agent in service to our nation, so click Alexander Litvinenko's natal chart.
It's under post title, Lim helps out Stars Over Washington, in case you get lost. Wouldn't surprise me if you did (I'm lookin' at you, BLOGGER.)
But if the BLOGGER photo non-posting situation clears up here I'll improve this situation asap, otherwise, this is the only end-run I can come up with for now to solve the disembodied chart/text fiasco...at least you can have a gander at the chart with just one click!
Sunday 12.3.06: Well, this is annoying. After being under the weather the last few days, I'm almost recoup'd and wanting to post Alexander Litvinenko's natal sunrise chart along with Nov 1 transits added, but BLOGGER is having none of it.
Although I tried several times and BLOGGER seems to upload the image, there's no image there. So I'm publishing this anyway and will return later in the afternoon to (hopefully) add the image of the poor man's chart with his day-of-poisoning transits written in.
XXXX UPDATE March 24 2008: the links to this article and the next are no longer available oddly enough...even though U.K. supposedly widened their 'probe' of the ex-spy's heinous poisoning which brought U.K. investigators to the US, to interview former KGB officer Yuri Shvets in Virginia. Um-hmm.
Original post begins here:
Italian who dined with the former KGB spy may yet share his fate from The Scotsman. Click on the article's link, Alexander Litvinenko and you'll find several articles on this sad matter.
~~~>(March 24, 2008: perhaps you can search for these articles on the Litvinenko poisoning investigation - good luck because you may need it!)
Per request, I'm publishing Alexander Litvinenko's natal sunrise chart, birth time unknown, and have written in my usual chicken scratch around the outside the transits for Nov 1, 2006, day of his poisoning, Sun at Mc at "9Sco": "Dental work."
As mentioned in a recent post, we see transit Venus in Scorpio, sign of spies and betrayal, on the verge of forming her Return to Litvinenko and to Putin's natal Venus--for they share Venus in the 11-13 Scorpio range--part of the Via Combusta, the burning way (15 Libra--15Scorpio.)
This area of the zodiac was considered in ancient times to be esp unfortunate due to the large number of malignant stars in the first half of Scorpio, but because of precession, Via Combusta is seldom used in modern times. The usual exception would be with horary astrology--the answering of specific questions.
Concerning the natal chart of Litvinenko (AL) we see an out-of-bounds Mercury in Sagittarius, and an Oriental Neptune--the planet rising just before the Sun. This indicates a person who is able to be or seem whatever his surroundings need him to be...a cameleon, a handy trait to have when engaged in espionage.
AL's prenatal eclipse series is 19North, a series which began July 5, 1331.
From the brilliant Bernadette Brady in her invaluable book, Predictive Astrology, the Eagle and the Lark, Amazon.com), the 19N Series tends to bring realism; coming down to earth with a thud; becoming aware of an old situation and seeing it for what it really is; a good time for tackling the truth.
A Solar Eclipse last occurred in the Series Aug 22, 1998, so for the 6 months afterward, AL may have dealt with these experiences...and I believe he did which may be part of why they silenced him.
In fact, his disagreements and outspokenness against the Kremlin and the FSB began publicly in 1998. #
