Russian Planes Hit Syria World Point

Russian planes have been in the news a lot lately.

They’ve been flying over Syria, and have apparently been doing lots of damage, not only to insurgents on the ground, but also to Russia’s relations with the U.S. Those relations have gotten very icy indeed.

Putin Flexes His Muscles

At one level, it’s easy to see the presence of Russian planes in Syrian skies as just an example of Russian President Vladimir Putin showing off.

Putin is sending Russian Planes to Syria

Macho man Vladimir Putin’s health may be great – but what else should he be worrying about?

As I’ve noted previously here, Vladimir Putin definitely likes to flex his muscles. That’s true even when he’s got his shirt on. But there are other worries brewing here. Vladimir Putin has been telling the world that those Russian planes are hitting ISIS targets – and that may be true. According to some sources, there is some evidence of massive desertions in the ISIS ranks since the Russian bombing began.

A Master Chess Player

But as Jim Cummins has pointed out in the past, the Russian leaders is a master chess player. He’s always thinking several moves ahead in the game of geopolitics.

Turkey isn’t very happy with the situation – it says the Russian planes are violating its air space, so they’re in danger of being shot down. And according to the U.S. news media, those Russian planes are flying now solely in an effort to prop up the Bashar al-Assad regime in Syria. Whether or not they are hitting ISIS targets, Russian bombs are also falling on Syrian insurgents who want to get rid of Bashar al-Assad. These are the so-called “moderate extremist” forces that the U.S. supports. It’s a group that includes, oddly enough, some members of al-Quaida in Syria.

As is all too often the case, the dogged American determination to get rid of governments who don’t agree with us makes for strange bedfellows.

But What About The Timing?

As international tensions continue to escalate, it’s important to step back and get a broader perspective whenever possible.

That’s where the tools of astrology come in.

We can of course learn a lot from the timing of the events in Syria themselves, and from the natal horoscopes of the world leaders making news. But even without the presence of Russian planes in the skies of Syria, a quick glance at one of the current planetary phenomena is informative. It can tell us a lot about what may soon be playing out on the global stage.

Mercury has been retrograde since September 17.

Mercury retrograde periods always mark times when communications can get confused, plans may not work out as intended, and intentions can be grossly misunderstood. So at the very least it’s a time when the leaders of countries would be wise not to jump to conclusions.

An End To Mercury Retrograde

But the Mercury retrograde period will be coming to an end on Friday, October 9. And that’s when things are likely to get even more interesting.

The Mercury Direct Station, the time when Mercury finishes up its retrograde motion and starts moving forward again, is always a critical point the retrograde cycle. More often than not, it seems to intensify the confusion, incompletion, and miscommunication that have been in play during the previous three weeks, while the planet has been in apparent backward motion. So this coming weekend will be a time for extra caution.

But that’s not the end of the story.

World Point Activation

When Mercury goes direct on October 9, it will be at 0° Libra.

That initial degree of a cardinal sign is one of the extraordinarily powerful “World Points” in the zodiac – whenever they are activated by significant planetary events or alignments, it’s a signal that we can expect to see major events with global implications.

But what kinds of events?

On previous occasions we’ve discovered that if we want to gain insights into current situations, it can be useful to study those previous times when planetary stations took place at the zodiac degrees currently being activated.

According to the tables listed on page 270 of Mercury, Money and the Markets, there has only been one previous time since 1900 when Mercury made a station at 0° Libra.

That was on September 2, 1983.

Russian Planes and American Casualties

On that date, Mercury made a Retrograde Station instead of a Direct Station, but its alignment with the World Point definitely had a global impact – and Russian planes were involved.

On September 2, 1983, U.S. Representative Lawrence P. McDonald, a Democrat from Georgia with a reputation as the most conservative member of Congress at the time, was in a group of Americans who were among the 269 passengers and crew members aboard Korean Air Lines Flight 007, traveling from New York to Seoul, South Korea. That civilian airliner was shot down by a fighter plane from the U.S.S.R. near Sakhalin Island in the Sea of Japan.

There were no survivors.

Needless to say, this was a major international incident, instantly ratcheting up Cold War tensions to new heights.

U.S. President Ronald Reagan, calling the downing of the airliner “a horrifying act of violence,” cut short his California vacation and called an emergency meeting of the National Security Council in Washington.

Secretary of State George P. Schultz was visibly enraged when he responded to questions about the event at a news conference, declaring that “We can see no excuse for this appalling act.”

Accusations and counter-accusations started flying. It didn’t take long for all sorts of conspiracy theories to start surfacing – about former U.S. President Richard Nixon, about the CIA, and, of course, about Russian planes.

And it all happened when Mercury was stationary at 0° Libra.

So, with another Mercury station coming up at the same zodiac degree in just a few days, it makes sense to pay particular attention to global tensions now.

Especially since Russian planes are already in the news.

    Hello,

    Has anyone done a good job at rectifying Putin’s natal? I have seen a number of incongruous dates for his date of birth. I believe this was done deliberately by Putin himself when he was at the KGB.

    Have you or Jim done some work along these lines — and if not, would you ? Would you also offer such information to the Astrological community?

    Please discuss the issue of Rectification and the best methodology.

    Thanks,

    B.

      Thanks for your comments, B!

      Rectification of Putin’s horoscope would certainly be a worthwhile endeavor – with or without his background in clandestine work, it would likely prove useful as a forecasting tool.

      The basic process in horoscope rectification is to do an extensive study of important events in the life of an individual, and then use the timing of those events to fine-tune our understanding of the natal chart. If we can come up with a precise time for a birth chart that is definitively and consistently responsive to planetary transits, directions, and progressions when major events have taken place in the individual’s life, then we consider the rectification process a success.

      Inevitably, though, the work of rectification involves lots of trial-and-error and a massive amount of research and deep thinking. Even with the aid of astrological software, there’s still a laborious process of deduction involved. The bottom line is that chart rectification ultimately becomes a “labor of love” – there’s no way to compensate a skilled astrologer adequately for the huge effort required.

      That’s not to say that it shouldn’t be attempted, however, especially with the horoscope of a key player on the global stage like Putin. Maybe some of our readers here could give it a shot – if anyone wants to contribute to the effort, please say so and we can use this forum as a space for sharing the research, deductions, and hypotheses.

    Tim, what an excellent answer and presentation of research opportunity your students and others.
    Knowing how much effort and energy the rectification process involves, I truly wish success to any who would undertake the task.
