  • Boris Nemtsov assassination

    The Russian opposition politician Boris Nemtsov was shot dead on Friday 27th February at 23.40 in Moscow. I wondered if is was possible to see who did it by casting a chart. The chart shows Venus in Aries in the 6th, with Mars in Aries just behind it.

     

    Boris Nemtsov is clearly represented by Venus, which is in exile in Aries about to conjoin Uranus. He planned to organize a protest march against the Russian intervention in Ukraine the following Sunday.

     

    The killer is obviously represented by Mars, which rules Aries. This indicates a professional killer who is not really personally invested in the killing. It is a contract killing because the last aspect Mars made was a trine to Saturn in Sagittarius.

     

    I was wondering if there was an astrological trail, which could lead to Putin. Well, Jupiter is the dispositor of Saturn in Sagittarius, which indicates that the person who arranged the contract was answering to Jupiter in Leo in the 10th house. That may show a powerful leader, but it is the MC ruler who is always the top leader, and that is the Sun.

     

    The sun is in Pisces conjoining Neptune; so don’t expect anything from Putin apart from a smokescreen. But here’s the thing: Jupiter and the Sun are in mutual reception. Traditionally this means they can swap places, and if you do that, then the Sun comes into Leo and exactly on the MC. Get it?

     

    I know – it is not going to stand up in a court of law. Putin did not do it, but it was done – ultimately – on his behalf. But you can expect the following story to come out: the assassination was organized by unknown forces in the opposition who were trying to discredit Putin and destabilize the country.
