Virgo Full Moon March 16, 2014 conjoins Russia's Natal Ascendant 26Virgo11
by Jude Cowell
A Full Moon can be quite auspicious when it falls upon a natal planet or Angle and in the case of tomorrow's Full Moon @26Vir01, that would be the Ascendant of Russia's sovereignty horoscope (June 12, 1990; 9:45 am GMT, ASC 26Vir11; Campion's The Book of World Horoscopes.) Some kind of fulfillment of a project, a separation, or a culmination of a plan is indicated along with 'awareness in relationship' vibes attend Full Moons. And as you know, a referendum vote will be held tomorrow (March 16, 2014) to 'decide' if Crimea wants to hitch its star to Russia's wagon--either now or later, rather than unite with the European Union. That's a pretty sorry vote, if you ask me--a 'rock and a hard place' kind of deal for the people.
As the world sees, the 'project' involves troop movements and war for if we set tomorrow's Full Moon chart for Moscow, warrior Mars @26Lib06 Rx and North Node @28Lib37 are rising (ASC 12Lib33 which brings up America's natal Saturn @14Lib48. Can the US perform as a Saturnian barrier to events? We have been citing agreements signed by Russia concerning invasion of national sovereignty which Putin now ignores. And why not since everyone has noticed that the US didn't play by the rules when it invaded Iraq, for example. Hypocrisy much, Washington?)

Additionally, the November 3, 2013 Solar Eclipse @11Sco15, which is still in force, conjoined, triggered, or eclipsed the natal Venus (11Sco42) of Vladimir Putin. Venus relates to jealousy, envy, and revenge and with his natal Venus in vengeful, secretive Scorpio, something was bound to happen. Venus in Scorpio can tend to waste its energy through excessive passion and self-control often wavers or vacillates with this placement. Unfortunately, the diplomatic skills of Venus seem to be lacking on Putin's part in current circumstances with belligerence holding sway. Plus, the attraction principle of Venus attracts spying Scorpio types of activities, interests, and people to the side of this 'former' KGB agent.
Mr. Putin's natal Sun Libra-Moon Gemini blend (Air-Air) indicates that he may spread himself too thin to accomplish all his goals but perhaps it somewhat depends upon who aids him in his current take-over endeavors.
Now if you haven't, you may wish to view President Putin's natal horoscope by visiting astrodatabank set for October 7, 1952 at 9:30 am, St. Petersburg, Russian Federation. However, his birth data's accuracy is in question so the horoscope has a Rodden Rating of C.
Of interest concerning the March 16, 2014 Full Moon may be its Water-Earth Sun Pisces-Moon Virgo blend's Images for Integration: "Small events bring enormous consequences...A mosaic picture of the universe, each piece perfect in itself...Faith and reason shake hands." (Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Charles & Suzi Harvey.)
The reference to 'faith' and 'reason' reminds me of the November 3, 2013 Solar Eclipse with its Uranus (reason)/Neptune (faith) influences which also relate to the 'new world order', a massive global project we're watching develop under our noses in Russia, Ukraine, and Crimea with major US involvement--because all the little dictators want to be The Boss of the 'nwo'!
