Comedian Volodymyr Zelensky who won 70% of the vote in the recent Ukraine presidential election, despite having no previous experience, has been sworn in. He campaigned strongly against official corruption and said ending the conflict with Russian-backed rebels in the east since Moscow annexed Ukraine’s Crimea peninsula in 2014 would be his top priority. Russian state TV said no Russian official had been invited to the inauguration. Zelensky said Ukrainians must “become Swiss in our ability to live happily with each other, despite any differences” and for dialogue with Russia to start there must be a return of all Ukrainian prisoners.”
He was born 25 January 1978 at 2pm Krivoj Rog, Ukraine and is a charming, maverick Sun Venus in Aquarius in a fiery opposition to Mars in Leo. His intense Mercury in Capricorn in the 8th squares Pluto and sextiles Uranus so he’ll be forceful in getting his points across. He has confident Jupiter in communicative Gemini in his 1st house sextile Saturn in Leo.
His life is certainly changing dramatically this year with tr Uranus square his Sun Venus from June onwards, having been square his Mars earlier this year. But it’ll be head down and fairly discouraging at points as well.
His relationship with Putin will be an uphill struggle with tr Pluto trine the composite Saturn till late 2020. And that’s mirrored in the Ukraine/Russia 1991 relationship chart with tr Pluto square the composite Sun also through till late 2020 bringing challenges and pressures; with heightened tensions and eruptions mid this December to mid February 2020.
It’s a bold experiment with the Swearing In chart having a ‘new direction’ 10th house Uranus conjunct Venus; plus a tough-minded Sun Mercury trine Saturn Pluto. It’ll take considerable stamina to make progress.
The Ukraine chart isn’t as jittered as it was over the Russian annexation of the Crimea when tr Pluto was conjunct the Uranus Neptune in Capricorn on the Ukraine Ascendant with tr Uranus in square. But tr Saturn is wading its way down these planets this year which will make it a sobering phase. 2021/2022 will see a sharp change of direction as tr Uranus starts to oppose the Ukraine midheaven and then Pluto; with a panicky tr Neptune opposing the Ukraine Mars – so it’ll be a winding road ahead.
