It is very evident that Ukraine is going to go through a surgery where its appendix is going to be removed. Chart attached – data below for others

Date: August 24, 1991; Time: 5:46:00 pm; Time Zone: 3:00:00 (East of GMT); Place: 30 E 31′ 00″, 50 N 26′ 00″; Kijow, Ukraine

The time has been corrected due to the inputs from Constantin. Thanks to him I think we have a more accurate chart. The Rashi chakra does not change but the varga have been altered

Rahu-Ketu debilitated in Lagna-7H axis with Mars in 10H … not much hope in this matter as 12L Ketu and Mars are intent on doing the Pisacha thing at night. The division will happen at night time, after 7PM. Note that Ketu is in Gemini with the sound क (ka) as in क्रिमीया (krimīyā) Crimea. This is the organ that will be removed. Mars shows Russia.

Mercury is COMBUST indicating loss of lands and property for the sake of spiritual upliftment as 7H (relationship, RUSSIA) and 10H (ego, status) shall be destroyed
Jupiter is COMBUST indicating that the Lagna and 4th bhava shall undergo serious cleansing and spiritual growth

PROPERTY
Caturthamsa D4 Chart
4th Lord Mercury is in 6H … definite loss of property

Mercury (R) – PK 2 Le 17′ 47.86″ Magh 1 Le Ar
Jupiter – GK 2 Le 15′ 02.53″ Magh 1 Le Ar

A war is taking place in MAGHA Nakshatra of Leo. The Place where the war shall happen is 12H Scorpio, which is like an Island or Island state [Crimea] Lagnesha Jupiter seems to be defeated. Why? We are speaking on the four types of yuddha in London in April and will give details.

DASHA
Regular Vimshottari shows that the 16 Year cleansing (Combustion) phase of Jupiter has started from 21 Dec 2013. Thats a long way to go.

Lets pray for some peace in this region and some sort of an amicable settlement in the next 3 days when Moon in in Aries (although this is unlikely). Danger till 4 March.
When the Moon goes to Rohini on 7 March, Ukraine could feel the pain.
May Shiva bring peace on the world

Shyam Devani, a budding PJC Student adds…
Last year in your note titled “Chelyabinsk Meteor” you concluded with the following…
The navāṁśa has an exalted Ketu in Sagittarius lagna showing that this is definitely an indication from the heavens of a great spiritual change to come in the Christian nations. Russia is the unstated capital of the orthodox ancient Christian church which is so very different from the Protestant church. We have just also heard about the resignation of the Pope Benedict. What can all this mean? Jupiter and Mercury conjoining the Moon in the 5th house is indicative of the power of the “word of god” which in India would have been translated to mean the Bhagavat Gita. We wonder in what manner this “word of God” is going to change things in Russia or Europe to be more precise.
Given the above, thee are some interesting details worth sharing…
The first Christian ruler of Russia converted to Christianity in Crimea.
In the 10th Century, Vladimir Sviatoslavich the Great (often called the prince of Novgorod), great-grandson of Rurik (the traditional founder of the Russian state), had assembled a Varangian army and reconquered Novgorod from his brother Yaropolk. By 980 Vladimir had consolidated the Kievan realm from modern-day Ukraine to the Baltic Sea. In 988, having taken the town of Chersonesos in Crimea (presently part of Sevastopol) Vladimir converted to Christianity, got married and eventually proceeded to Christianize Russia. The place of Vladimir’s baptism is marked by St. Vladimir’s Cathedral.
It appears that Crimea has a little more to it than just a few Russian speaking people and a bit of manufacturing
Note: I am not an expert on Russian history.
Final observation for whatever it is worth: Crimea was given away by Khrushchev in 1954 when Saturn was in Libra…this is the second Saturn return.
This entry is part 1 of 4 in the series Ukraine

When we wrote about Crimea breaking from Ukraine, so many were alarmed but then this is only the beginning of a very long daśā (vedic period) of Jupiter which is involved in a battle with Mercury in the natal chart of Ukraine.

Nikita-KhrushchevTIMELet us say that for some reason whatever, Nikita Khrushchev had not had that whim about adding Crimea to Ukraine in the erstwhile USSR, then in 1991, Crimea would have been part of Russia. What is really happening is that the whim and fancy of some historical leaders, who sat and drew lines on maps and then advised Nikita Khrushchev to make that gift of land, is being reversed. It was a forgone conclusion that Crimea is going to be operated out of Ukraine and like any surgery, this one too is going to be a little painful. But you got to give credit to the ‘doctors’ who have performed this miraculous surgery without shedding any blood. It was excellent anesthesia – to say the least. What’s happening in the world feels like a slow dream with people saying and doing things they have to say to be politically correct. And that’s fine.

Phālguṇa Pūrṇimā: Holi

But this Sunday, 16 Mar, 2014 on Phālguṇa Pūrṇimā, when everyone in India celebrates the great festival of Holi playing colours with Kṛṣṇa, Crimea will become a part of Russia. Every Pūrṇimā indicates the spiritual power of a great guru. We have a list.

Pūrṇimā Sun Full Moon Guru’s Light
1 Vaiśākha Aries Viśākhā Buddha
2 Jyaiṣṭha Taurus Jyeṣṭha Yama Dharmarāja [Vaṭa Pūrṇimā]
3 Āsāḍha Gemini Āsāḍha Vyāsa, Mahāvira [Guru Pūrṇimā]
4 Śrāvaṇa Cancer Śrāvaṇa Viṣṇu [Rakṣa Bandana]
5 Bhādra Leo Bhadrapada Uma-Maheśvara [Madhu Pūrṇimā], Indra
6 Aśvina Virgo Aśvinī Kṛṣṇa rāsa [Śarad], Lakṣmī [Kojāgarī] or Kārtikeya [Kumāra]
7 Kārtika Libra Kṛttikā Guru Nanak, Tripura Sundarī
8 Mārgaśira Scorpio Mṛgāśiras Dattātreya
9 Pauṣa Sagittarius Puṣyā Durgā [Śākhāmbarī Pūrṇimā]
10 Magha Capricorn Magha Hari, Śrāddha Devī [Best day for donations]
11 Phālguṇa Aquarius Phālguṇī Kṛṣṇa (Holi Festival)
12 Chaitra Pisces Chitrā Hanuman, Śrī Chandra

It is very interesting to note that the great phālguṇa pūrṇimā having the power of Śrī Kṛṣṇa was chosen for the referendum in Crimea. The way I see it, people will be dancing in the streets and playing colours in Crimea on that day. Let us not forget that the Mercury-Jupiter exact conjunction shows the Bhagavat Gita, the spiritual power of the holy words of Śrī Kṛṣṇa.

EU Trigger

ukraine-divide We thought that the Berlin Wall was down and that the German people would live in peace, but looks like the rapid expansion of the European Union is being perceived by some in Europe as German expansion. Someone once said that “true freedom starts with economic freedom”. Hypothetically, if a nation becomes completely indebted to the EU and is in such a pathetic emasculated state where it has to beg for alms for survival, that too on a monthly basis, would it not be apt to say that it has lost its freedom? I don’t know – let the economists ponder this. But it is this fear that has triggered the present Crisis. This is indicated by the graha yuddha occurring in Leo, the ninth house of fortune and freedom. As such the Sun does rule wealth.

Mars is in Virgo: Mesa Rasi Kanyā aṁśa shows the logical perfectionist Germany but this can indicate other people as well. That is the trigger to the deadly piśāca bādhaka duryoga in the chart of Ukraine. It is like a ghost attack and you cannot see the enemy.

What Next?

The real problem is not about Crimea joining the Russian Federation in some form or another, but this is the beginning of the great graha yuddha of Jupiter and Mercury. Such a combination in the chart of Śrī Kṛṣṇa showed the Mahabharata war. It also showed the singing of the Bhagavat Gita just before the start of the Mahabharata. And now after all these years we have a similar situation in the chart of Ukraine. But unlike Kṛṣṇa the Moon is nowhere around and instead Mercury and Jupiter show the warring factions – Russia and Ukraine respectively, who are actually brothers – just like the Pāṇḍava and Kaurava.

The Future

This Crimea surgery from Ukraine is not the end of Ukraine’s problems. It will start a much bigger rumble inside in the years to come, starting with 2018 [Mercury antardaśā of Jupiter daśā] when some economic treaties [Mercury] will again trigger unrest. In the coming years there will be considerable social unrest in Ukraine. People will leave their homes and see so much suffering, death and disease. Does that mean another divide, the East-West language-culture divide, can split Ukraine into two parts? It can be prevented if the people realise that taking sides with foreign nations or groups is the trigger. All they have to do is talk to each other [Mercury] and stop taking sides as it causes fear in the minds of other Ukraine people.

The most peculiar feature of this entire period is that the leaders and people will not want to talk to each other [Mercury rules communication and speech]. And that can only increase the power of Rāhu leading to doubts, mistrust and division.

Everyone in western Europe seems alarmed at the news report on Sloviansk, a city in eastern Ukraine. India is just too busy with its elections, Maoist bombs and Modi’s wife to be bothered about whats happening in Europe. The whole attitude to Ukraine is ‘Let the people decide’. But that’s exactly the problem. Who are the people who have to decide for who? Just as we had warned in the previous article, the Europen Union move is going to be perceived in very negative light and the Ukraine government, instead of waiting to win the confidence and faith of the people, is perceived by at least those in the east, as weaklings who will become slaves for Germany, the EU champion.

News Report

apr12ukraine
Armed pro-Russians guard new checkpoint at Sloviansk entrance

On 12 Apr 2014, armed men dressed in camouflage clothing have seized a police station in eastern Ukraine. Police said the gang fired shots and used stun grenades to seize the offices in Sloviansk, near the Russian border. In fact armed men took over police stations and official buildings in three cities on Saturday – Sloviansk, Kramatorsk and Druzhkovka.

Ukraine Interior Minister Arsen Avakov called the gunmen “terrorists” and said special forces would repel the attack. He added “Pro-Russian protesters have taken over government buildings throughout eastern Ukraine…the unrest is being orchestrated from Moscow.”
Protesters in the eastern city of Donetsk, 130km (80 miles) from Sloviansk, have been occupying government buildings for days and demanding a referendum on becoming part of Russia.
A similar move prompted a Russian takeover of Ukraine’s Crimea region earlier this year. The US and EU have put sanctions on Russian and Crimean people they say were connected with the takeover.

BBC News  “Unconfirmed reports suggested official buildings had also been taken over in two other cities – Mariupol and Yenakievo.” In the regional capital, Donetsk, several public buildings have been occupied and Pro-Russian activists have blockaded the security services’ office in Luhansk.

Battle for Sloviansk

President Vladimir Putin in 2007The battle for Sloviansk started when the Moon transited the ‘graha yuddha’ sign Leo on 12 Apr, 2014. The government at Ukraine woke up from its slumber the next day when the Moon entered Virgo, showing the government in power. Mars conjoining the Moon showed the decision that was inevitable – retaliation against the local militia, who are mostly ethnic Russian and are supported by Russia. Todays reports are streaming in about one Ukrainian state security officer killed and five wounded on the government side in what interior minister Arsen Avakov called Sunday’s “anti-terrorist” operation adding that there were many casualties on the “separatist” side.
The transit of Mars in Virgo is going to continue til 14 July, 2014 and this transit over its natal position which is a Pisacha Badhaka is terrible for the people of Ukraine as Mars is the lord of the 5th house showing ‘people and population’. By nature Mars in digbala in the 10th house, as the 5th lord shows the people of Ukraine are heroic and very brave which simply means, they will dig in and fight. Thats not good news for the government at Kiev.

We want to join Russia. We would be very grateful if Russia helps us,” said a gunman in the centre of Slaviansk who gave his name as Alexander, wearing camouflage fatigues and a black balaclava mask. “We will stand until victory. Honestly, it’s not scary for me to die for freedom.”Thomas Grove of Reuters

If you read the previous article of this series “Crimea: The Beginning”, the name itself spelt out what is expected in the stars of Ukraine. What happened in Crimea was only a beginning and the map showed where this is heading.
While Luhansk can be called a “border-city”, all the others cannot be called cities at the border and show the systematic manner in which the ethnic divide of Ukraine is gradually undermining its unity.

We had categorically pointed out and warned that if the government moved towards the EU at this delicate juncture and that too without the confidence of the population, the situation would worsen. In fact that’s exactly what Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said “it was Ukraine’s Western-leaning government, viewed by the Kremlin as illegitimate, that was stoking the tensions”.

leadersThe BBC reported that marathon peace negotiations have resulted in a new ceasefire deal for eastern Ukraine in the Belarusian capital Minsk. The 16-hour talks went on through the night, between Russian President Vladimir Putin, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, French President Francois Hollande and German Chancellor Angela Merkel. We all know that a previous Minsk ceasefire deal collapsed within days of its signing on 5 Sep 2014 and there was heavy fighting just hours before this one as if telling the negotiators that “the ink in which this deal needs to be signed is human blood”. The Ukrainian army and pro-Russian rebels controlling a big swathe of Donetsk and Luhansk regions are busy bombarding each other continuously so long as missile supplies last.

First take a look at the official ground map issued by Ukraine National Security & Defence Council. It still shows Crimea as a part of Ukraine while the world knows that it is no longer a part and has become an independent country.
official_ukraine_reality_groundmap
Now the only thing to note is that the 12-point plan of September 2014 has been reduced to an 11-point plan of Feb-2015. That’s one point less in about six months besides it has to look different so that the world gets the temporary euphoria that some serious negotiations happened through the night between Angela Markel (Germany) and Vladimir Putin (Russia). Now don’t get me wrong here – everyone wants some peace and quiet, but nobody is addressing the main issue. Pro-Russian rebels have signed the peace agreement but the key issues remain to be settled, including the situation in Debaltseve. Therefore it is evident that this was a useless negotiation as the real negotiator, the United States, was missing from the table. Face the truth – if Europe was capable of finding peace within, then the world would not have seen two world wars. They tie themselves in all sorts of multi-diplomacy knots that finally squeezes them to get at each other’s throats.

And our jyotiṣa says that the days of the defeated-combusted Jupiter have not yet finished. Refer to the previous article. So why should there be any change?

Look at their eyes: Who will blink first - Russia vs. Ukraine
Who will blink first – Russia vs. Ukraine

European leaders have warned Russia that it could face additional sanctions if the agreement is not respected. German Chancellor Angela Merkel said the deal offered “a glimmer of hope”, but also warned that “it is very important that words are followed by actions” as if something inside her, like an inner voice, told her that nothing is going to happen.

Shortly after the deal President Obama said that they are considering to supply arms to Ukraine if the deal fails and Putin retorted that “it would be a serious mistake”. The world must be really stupid to actually believe that a deal of any kind was going to happen – or at least the media would have us believe so.

Jupiter daśā Jupiter antara and Venus pratyantara from 7 Jan 2015 to 16 May 2015 is a decidedly dangerous phase for Ukraine with both planets Jupiter and Venus being combusted in the Sun. Combustion means burning, deaths and disaster – and that is where all this is heading. We must give credit to President Obama who for all this time has withstood heavy pressure from the Republicans and others and has kept the US out of this European conflict. But there are ample signs that the pressure from within the Democratic Party may be tough to withstand. There is every likelihood of the US entering the conflict and if that happens this ‘Fire in Ukraine’ caused by the combustion of Jupiter will burn for the remaining part (15 years) of Jupiter daśā. Supplying arms is like throwing wood inside a burning fire with the hope that it will contain it!

Correct Chart

Based on the inputs of Constantin (see comments), we have a different time which changes the Navamsa Lagna to Libra thereby completely changing the destiny chart of the Nation. The previous time of 5:31 PM had Leo Lagna with the navamsa lagna being in the same sign as the battle ground sign of the Rashi chart – which meant that the battle was going to destroy the nation. However this time with the navamsa lagna in Libra shows that the battle ground sign ‘leo’ is in the badhaka rashi from navamsa lagna and will cause considerable damage but then Venus has the ‘fire-fighting power’ Venus is the natural fire-fighter of the zodiac and can fight the fires of Leo.
I would prefer a time of 5:57′ PM as that would give the pranapada lagna in trines to navamsa Moon.
ukraine5-57

Since Venus is now doing the fire-fighting job, its period from Nov 2014 to 2 Apr, 2015 is the only window of hope to bring forth peace in the region. Thereafter the Sun comes and it can blow hot again. It is imperative that the Ukranians realise that they can love both Germany and Russia … why hate, and that too your own brothers!
