ph: Dennis Jarvis, ccbysa2.0

Astrogeographical position of the City of Minsk for morphogenetic field level 1 which describes the international, supra-regional resonance of the capital of Belarus concerning its government, politics and the center of the national morphic field (nation): Minsk has one coordinate at 27°Leo the sign of centralism and major indicator for centralist rule and the 2nd coordinate at 1° Capricorn the sign of governments, Both resonance coordinates are particularly important resonators for centralist governments, kingdom, absolutism, autocracy and centralization of politics. The strong and direct parallel of the 27°Leo resonance coordinate of Minsk with exactly the same position of Washington could explain the intense threat felt by Moscow of a closer relationship of Minsk with Russias strongest geo-political opponent and enemy.

Another important historical capital for Belarus is the Lithuanian capital of Vilnius (Wilna) located some 160 km north-west of Minsk at 4°Sagittarius and 7°Leo. The long-time central capital Moscow is located at 2°Taurus and 12°Cancer.

Belarus Re-Establishment of Soviet Rule 1920

The Retreat of the German armies at the end of World War I allowed the Bolshevist Russian armies to re-enter into Belarus. As a result Belorussian forces constitute the Socialist Soviet Republic of Byelorussia on January 1 1919. This western winter offensive was not limited to Belarus as Soviet forces similarly moved into Lithuania to proclaim the Lithuanian Socialist Soviet Republic (LSSR) in Vilnius. These operations brought the Soviets into confrontation with the newly formed 2nd Polish Republic and the remains of German forces in East Prussia. By August 8 1919 Polish forces occupied Minsk. It took the Bolshevist forces over a year to reconquer Minsk in July 1920.

Alexander Lukashenko as the personification of Pluto over Minsk

Alexander Lukashenko
Alexander Lukashenko was born with Pluto and Mars over Minsk. This picture shows him after 27 years of presidency over Belarus
ph: belta.by, ccbysa3.0

Lukashenko supported the 1991 Soviet coup d’état attempt directed against Russian president Mikhail Gorbachev and against the dissolution of the USSR. Though opposed to the independence of Belarus from the USSR and from Russia Alexander Lukashenko has personally dominated Belarus as its first President ever since the creation of the office on 20 July 1994. This explains his role as a supporter of Russian political control over Belarus.

Alexander Lukashenko Birth Chart
Birth chart for Alexander Lukashenko calculated as a midnight chart for 31 August 1954 at 0:00. For the controversy on his birth date on 30 or 31 August and birth time see the Rodden Archive.
  • Lukashenko was born with Pluto as astrological indicator for the battle for power and dominance over social hierarchies and for control over foreign territory and for ideology at 25° Leo conjunct the highly centralist 27°Leo resonance coordinate of the capital, political center and government of Belarus.
  • This Pluto resonance describes the role and function of Lukashenko as an example of the traditional type of Soviet dictators except the fact that the Soviet Union does not exist anymore and is now replace by the Russian national state.
  • In Lukashenkos birth chart Mars at 2° Capricorn as the other one of the two most aggressive astrological planetary factors exactly conjunct the 1°Capricorn resonance coordinate of Minsk explains the full amount of royal and dictator-like appeal for dominance and control.
  • The combination of Pluto and Mars over Minsk appears as the representation of Lukashenkos success in his personal coup and rise to power and control over the nation, thus using the super-centralist, absolutist, authoritarian and royalist qualities described by the astrogeographical position of Minsk.

The first Lukashenko Presidency with Pluto square to Minsk

The first Presidential elections in Belarus held on 23 June 1994 with a second round on 10 July 1994 are widely considered as the only free elections ever held in Belarus until today. Lukashenko received 80.6% of the vote in the second round.

  • the position of Pluto the planet of the battle for power at 26°Scorpio exactly square the 27°Leo resonance coordinate of Minsk explains Lukashenkos rise to power as part of a development under intense pressure on the independence and political autonomy of Belarus.
  • The fact that Lukashenko installed his long time personal dominance and autocratic rule over the political situation of the nation under a square transit from Pluto is a strong explanation for the pressure exerted onto the new nation due to the the geo-strategical sphere of interest of its former colonial super power in Moscow.
  • Nevertheless the position of Jupiter (Zeus) the planet of victory at 5° Scorpio and in exact opposition to the 2°Taurus resonance coordinate of Moscow explains how much of a defeat and even a danger to its stability the formal independence of Belarus may have been felt by the Russian government in Moscow!!!

Astrogeographical Transits for Belarus in the 21 century

The 2020–2021 Belarusian protests are ongoing political demonstrations and protests against the government and presidency of Alexander Lukashenko who has served as president of Belarus ever since the first establishment of the office in 1994. The movement represents the largest anti-governmental protests in the short history of independence of Belarus. The demonstrations began in the lead-up to the 2020 presidential election in which Lukashenko sought his sixth term in office.

Belarus Protestes 2020/2021
Astrological chart for the planetary positions on 24 May 2020 the day of the first mass demonstrations in the Belarusian Protests of 2020/2021
  • The current protests against the attempt of a life-long rule of Alexander Lushenko over Belarus through the manipulation of elections may not appear to be successful soon. That may be seen as negative and sad – and an increasing number of people may seriously suffer through torture and other reprisals against democratic rights.
  • But the violence and dictatorship exerted by the caste of profiteers of the current regime could help the population develop an independent civil rights movement and democratic autonomy of opinion in the long run. This is also because in this particular case they can not rely on much support from the European Union and the USA.
  • the position of Saturn at 2°Aquarius in exact square to the 2°Taurus resonance coordinate of Moscow explains that the current movement could built up an intense challenge to the status quo in Moscow due to the probability that the civil rights movement in Belarus could infiltrate the public opinion in Russia.
  • the next planetary transits that indicate the outlook of political change Belarus are:
  • The opposition transit of Saturn to the 27°Leo resonance coordinate of Minsk that culminate in May/June 2022 and in February 2023.
  • the climax of the square transits of Uranus the planet of revolution and emancipation over 27°Taurus to the 27°Leo position of Minsk between June 2024 and May 2026.
