The astrogeographical position of Ankara
The foundation of settlements at todays Ankara goes back to Hittite and Phrygian eras. In 278 BC, the city, along with the rest of central Anatolia, was occupied by a Celtic group, the Galatians, who were the first to make Ankara one of their main tribal centers, the headquarters of the Tectosages tribe.

The 2nd coordinate is located 2° of highly centralist, royal fire sign Leo the sign of the super-centralist mega states, absolutism, kings and king-presidents, sun, light, heart, self-esteem, power stations, gold, magnificence, profile neurosis and an indicator for the appeal to the rule of the central government over federal issues.
A list of capitals that have a Leo resonance explains the appeal to hegemony, super centralism, absolutism, profile neurosis and global dominance that the Leo resonance of capitals stands for.
- Washington (27°), New Delhi (26°), Beijing (3°) and Jakarta as the topmost populated and top super centralist nations on the planet apart from Moscow of course.
- Jakarta (22° and 28°Leo) together with Riyadh the only capital with both resonance coordinates in Leo as the 4th most populated nation on the planet.
- Riyadh (7° and 21°Leo) with both resonance coordinates in Leo. The seat of government of Saudi-Arabia seed itself as the political capital of a self-designed supreme of all religions

- an exact square of Ankara with the 2°Leo resonance coordinate of Moscow that reflects the long history of territorial competition, confrontations geo-strategical tension between the two neighbor countries. Moscow had been under the traumatic Tartar Yoke for 240 years while Russia has conquered and dominated the territories of Turkic Peoples all across Northern Asia ever since.
- at the same time it is located in exact square to the 2°Taurus resonance coordinate of New Delhi a natural ally (because conjunct) of Moscow which explains the relationship between Turkey and India as of a natural geo-strategical controversy and tension.
- the 2°Leo resonance coordinate of Ankara is exactly conjunct the 3°Leo resonance coordinate of Beijing making the Chinese and Turkish nations appear as natural allies – but only as much as that is possible between two nations both of which strife for dominance through Leo the sign of the superiority of one side over others.

The Turkish Republic of Kemal Atatürk
On October 29, 1923, the National Assembly declared Turkey to be a republic and Mustafa Kemal Atatürk was elected as its first president. The caliphate was abolished on March 3, 1924, and all members of the Ottoman dynasty were expelled from Turkey. A full republican constitution was adopted on April 20, 1924. The constitution retained Islam as the official state religion until in April 1928 also this clause was removed, and Turkey became a fully secular republic.
- The date of the foundation of the first Turkish Republic saw the Sun as the sign ruler of Leo and of the 2°Leo astrogeographical coordinate of Ankara at 5° Scorpio in a square and challenging aspect to the capital.
- This constellation stood for the challenge to the old royalist, aristocratic, ottoman system in Turkey by the new Turkish military government under Mustafa Kemal Atatürk which led to the abolition of the Ottoman Caliphate on 3 March 1924 with Saturn the planet of stabilization of government institutions at 2°Scorpio exactly square to Ankara.

Erdogan`s rise to power shortly after the Uranus ingress in Pisces
- Erdogan`s success is clearly to be seen in resonance with the Pisces coordinate of Ankara and particularly with the transit of Uranus over Ankara. Not only was he born and made Minister President with the Sun in Pisces – the inauguration also came only one day after Uranus` ingress in Pisces and straight into conjunction with the 3°Pisces coordinate of the Turkish capital, bringing the full blow of pseudo-religious populism and overthrow of the Kemalist Democracy into the country`s parliament and government institutions. Erdogan has ever since been able to do his work of suppression of civil rights and democratic institutions and replace them by an authoritarian government.
- The North Node as indicator of the final aim of his first government was at 2° Gemini and in exact square to the capital marking his aim to change the country`s political system but act through the use of the democratic institutions in his favor.
Development after 2015
The transit of Saturn over 3° Sagittarius in a square to the 3° Pisces astrogeographical position of Ankara in February and October 2015 was used by the turkish President Erdogan for further attacks on the turkish democracy, constitution and the political and national inheritance of Kemal Atatürk.
At the same time the turkish government got under intense pressure through the terrorist attacks by the Islamic State – a terrorist organisation developed in Iraq and Syria with the help of the American, Turkish and Saudi-Arabian governments with intention to destabilize Iraq and Syria.
For a deeper investigation of the impact of the Ankara positions in turkish history there is a long line of events before and during the Erdogan era to be recalled. The shootdown of a Russian Jet over Syrian territory by a Turkish Airforce Fighter on 24 November 2016 during the Sun, Mercury, Saturn conjunction between 2° and 6° Sagittarius in a square to Ankara is one of them. This attack on friendly Russia – a major business partner was apparently simply done for Erdogan´s propaganda purposes but did cause an eight-months ice-age between the two countries. The fact that this attack was carried out during Saturn´s square to Ankara is an indication that the pressure on the turkish capital, independent parliament, democratic constitution and national inheritance of the Atatürk political system is actually carried out through the country`s president himself..
Current and future transits of the outer planets in relation to Ankara after the 2016 Coup d`Etat
The 2011 Neptune ingress into Pisces and onto the astrogeographical position of the turkish government in Ankara strongly destabilized the democratic institutions of the Kemalist system. But it did at the same time strengthen Erdogan´s control over the whole country.. Born with the Sun at 6°Pisces and conjunct the 3°Pisces astrogeographical position of Ankara Erdogan seems to represent the Pisces qualities of of the turkish capital. This is also shown by the fact that he first came to power immediately after Uranus`s transit into Pisces and in conjunction with the 3°Pisces astrogeographical position of Ankara.
The ingress of Neptune as the sign ruler into Pisces in March 2011 brought im a victory in the elections of 12 June 2011. On 29 August 2014 Erdogan was even made President of Turkey with Neptune transiting in exact conjunction with the Sun position in his birth chart..
The Uranus ingress into Taurus im May 2018 and into a square to Ankara`s 3°Leo position
Erdogan had come to power one day after Uranus` ingress into Pisces and into conunction with Ankara. Now that Uranus has ingressed into Taurus activating a square to the 3°Leo position of the turkish capital Erdogan faces what could become the biggest crisis of his rulership over Turkey since 2003. A recent example for the intensity of Uranus` transit in a square to capitalsand governements is the example of the Brexit vote of 2016 during Uranus` transit in exact square to the british government in London.
The Trump announcement that the USA will impose new custom duties on steel and alumium imports from turkey on 10 August caused a strong and immediate devaluation of the Turkish currency Lira. Another heavy blow for the turkish economy after the near termination of EU tourism through the effects turkish pressure on EU citizens travelling in Turkey since 2016. Erdogan answered that with heavy threats against the american government.
The climax of Uranus`square to Ankara will be effective from may 2018 until July 2020.
The 1980 and the 2016 Coup d`Ètat`s in Turkey compared
Let´s get back to the Coup d`Ètat in Turkey on 12 September 1980 when the turkish military served as a protector of the untity of the country by taking over power for a period of 3 years.
During the Coup d`Etat in Turkey Venus the planet of occupation of resources, wealth, territory and central markets at 5° Leo was conjunct the astrogeographical position of Ankara. This constellation describes very well a coup in favor of the stabilization of the current situation and from the center of society rather than one dedicated to overturning government institutions and economical basis of society. It therefore symbolyzes the strongly stabilizing and lasting effects of the changes brought about during the short period of military rule.
The Coup d`Etat of 15/16 July 2016 was apparently a fake organized to justify the final steps in the suppression and at least partial abolition of the democratic institutions and the independence of justice. In a stunning parallel to the September 1980 Coup Venus the planet of markets, income, food, possession of territory was again conjunct the 2!Leo resonance coordinate of Ankara pointing at a Coup organized from Ankara and in favor of the territorial and economical centralism and economical stability. This time Venus was accompanied by Mercury the planet of intelligence and indicator of cleverly planned action in favor of the central government.
Just like in the case of the 1980 Coup d`Etat these transits clearly show a coup carried out by the ruling groups in Ankara and in favor of the stability of the central government with the only difference that this time it was not the military that took over control to safeguard the democratic institutions and Kemalist political system but the central government itself that took over control over the military in oder to abolish the secular Kemalist republic and establish the full hegemony of the corrupt Erdogan clans.
The absence of of planetary transits of tension in relation to Ankara is a hint at the improbability of a Coup dedicated at the destabilization of the state or government. There is no trait for that and actually quite the opposite was the case: the position of the Moon moving in exact trine to the 2°Leo coordinate of Ankara an in Sagittarius the sign of expansion points at events well directed at the expansion of the current ruling government.
Jupiter at 19° Virgo was on the same zodiac degree as on the day of the previous Coup d`Etat in Turkey of 12 September 1980 as well as of the Reichstag Fire on 27 February 1933 in Berlin an almost archetypal example for how a fake assault was used for destroying democracy to create a bloody dictatorship.
The Reichstags Fire was an arson attack by the german Nazi Party on the german parliament building done to create an alibi for suspending civil rights and make way for Hitler`s fatal dictatorship over Germany.
The Nine Eleven attack on the WTC Twin Towers in New York which was used as an alibi for corrupting the democratic system in the USA, creating a line of wars, destabilizing a number of countries in the Middle East and Africa and creating free space and enough hate for founding large groups of terrorist organisations saw the Sun at 19° Virgo in the same position too..
