Vladimir Putin has been the leader of Russia since 1999. So he is one of the longest-serving current world leaders. He has had a long time to consolidate his power by enriching allies and silencing enemies. As seen by the Russian invasion of Ukraine on February 28, 2022, he wields this power ruthlessly. This interpretation of the Vladimir Putin horoscope shows why he is so powerful and ruthless.
Vladimir Putin Horoscope
Vladimir Putin was born on October 7, 1952, in Saint Petersburg, Russia. His time of birth was given by the webmaster of the President Vladimir V. Putin website:
Mr. Putin was born early in the morning, at 9:30 a.m. Moscow Time, in downtown St Petersburg.
Astro Databank lists this time of birth as DD (not reliable) due to other conflicting sources. But I like this time because of the Midheaven degree (very time-dependent). As you will see below, it perfectly explains his incredible power and ruthlessness.
Vladimir Putin’s Sun is conjunct fixed star Algorab (1°08′). It gives destructiveness, malevolence, fiendishness, repulsiveness and lying, and is connected with scavenging. Delays and restraint are indicated to come about by fiascoes, losses, wrong handling of matters, and enmity in general.
Algorab is in Constellation Corvus the Crow. It gives craftiness, greediness, ingenuity, patience, vengefulness, passion, selfishness, lying, aggressiveness, and material instincts, and sometimes causes its natives to become agitators.
Midheaven and Pluto
Midheaven conjunct fixed star Ras Elased Australis (1°09′): Bad name, rise by trade followed by disgrace and ruin.
Ras Elased Australis has been called “He who rends.” It gives a bold, bombastic, cruel, heartless, brutish, and destructive nature, but artistic appreciation and power of expression. This star gives the quality of looking carefully at a situation before forging ahead into it.
Pluto conjunct Midheaven (1°31′) often leads to a position of influence and renown. There is no better aspect to explain Putin’s ruthless quest for power and ruthless use of power. It explains why he has gone to extreme lengths to reach the top and leave his mark on the world.
Pluto culminating in the Vladimir Putin horoscope makes him overbearing, bossy, and obsessive. He may have used threats, intimidation, bribery, or guilt-tripping to gain fame and riches. Putin has a strong sense of purpose in life and pursues his goals with ceaseless determination. He is extremely resourceful with a great ability to adapt or evolve in response to changing circumstances.
Mercury and Neptune
Fixed star Spica conjunct Mercury (0°00′) and Neptune (2°00′): Spica is the most fortunate star used in astrology. It gives success, renown, riches, honors, fame, a sweet disposition, love of art and science, unscrupulousness, unfruitfulness, and injustice to innocence. It also gives androgynous, spiritual, and religious qualities, with above-average psychic awareness.
Mercury conjunct Spica: Neat, tidy, clever, ingenious, favor of clergy and people in authority, gain through investment, responsible position.
Neptune conjunct Spica: Well-born, comfortable surroundings, always sufficiently well off, associated with companies, gain through legacies, favorable for domestic matters, somewhat fast and extravagant, does not live to old age.
Fixed star Arcturus conjunct Mercury (0°23′) and Neptune (2°23′): Arcturus gives riches, honors, high renown, self-determination, and prosperity by navigation and voyages.
This star has a reputation for achieving justice through power. It, therefore, makes the native belligerent and quarrelsome. An enterprising spirit is the rule here. Lasting success is promised if further good aspects are present (yes, trine Midheaven and Pluto)
With Mercury: Sober, industrious, popular, inclined to be religious, somewhat extravagant but well-off, help through friends, holds a position of trust in large company or corporation, or receives promotion under direction, favorable for health and domestic affairs.
With Neptune: Ingenious, business instincts, changeable, and loss through this means, mediumistic and rather negative, associated with societies as an official, loss, and misfortune in middle age which hastens death, favorable for friendship, partnership, marriage and success, greatly dependent upon the advice of marriage partner.
Mercury conjunct Neptune (2°00′) makes Putin extremely sensitive and probably psychic, especially as the fixed stars mentioned above give psychic ability. He probably sees, hears, or notices with other senses, things which most others do not.
The sextile to Pluto culminating has turned his intuitive abilities into valuable talents to increase his power and influence. This would have been especially useful in his work in the secret service but also in politics. It has given him the ability to stay one step ahead of the competition. He not only perceives a great amount, but can also project much verbal and nonverbal information, plus psychic energy.
Mercury sextile Pluto (0°27′) makes Putin a deep thinker on serious subjects. His mind has a probing nature that allows his powerful intuition to uncover the truth about a matter. This psychic ability combines with excellent planning and organizational abilities to make him the perfect spy, politician, and leader.
His style of communication is persuasive and intense, but with a mysterious type of attractiveness. This aspect gives strong opinions that can be extreme or controversial. It is excellent for a propagandist and a liar.
Neptune sextile Pluto (1°33′) makes Putin unafraid to challenge the accepted way of thinking and doing things. He can tap into the collective subconscious and can gauge the prevailing thoughts of those around him and society in general. This is greatly enhanced by the psychic abilities from the fixed stars and Mercury conjunct Neptune, sextile Pluto.
Mercury sextile Midheaven (1°57′) gives intelligence and curiosity as well as mental, musical, or sporting ability. This aspect brings assistance and guidance from important and influential people. It also gives excellent communication and improvisational skills, and good coordination and dexterity with his mind and his hands.
This aspect in the Vladimir Putin horoscope helps explain his talent for languages, negotiation, propaganda, and politics. It helps him present well in public, use the media to his advantage, and generate respect and a good reputation. It means he has a message to share and it helps him share it effectively and convincingly.
Neptune sextile Midheaven (0°02′) usually gives a gentle and uncombative disposition and an unambitious appearance. But not when Pluto is conjunct Midheaven. In Putin’s case, it has given him aspirations to make a difference in his career. It is helping him achieve his dreams and ideals through his career. But this aspect does subject Putin to more than the average amount of satire and scandal.
A strong intuition gives Putin an inner feeling of confidence that things will work out well. Just as he shares a special spiritual bond with his family members, he feels a spiritual connection to work colleagues, the Russian public, and perhaps even all of humanity. He also has the ability to connect to the ordinary person on the street.
Mars trine Pluto (3°48′) gives a strong will and determination to succeed. It makes Putin courageous and confident, with a powerful charisma and sexual appeal. He can be a very intense person who will fight for social causes and may have prophetic or occult talents.
Vladimir Putin has a strong ego and want’s to be noticed by leaving a mark on the world. He can easily gain the cooperation and help of others because of his leadership qualities. Sex appeal is part of his general attractiveness which makes him a good leader. Importantly, Mars trine Pluto means Vladimir Putin can sustain a prolonged attack until the enemy is totally defeated.
Mars trine Midheaven (5°18′) adds yet more enthusiasm, bravery and self-confidence. He knows who he is and where he is going, and works incredibly hard to succeed. Putin passionately defends his family and Russia with militant inspiration. This aspect focuses his aggression on his leadership of Russia. So starting wars is an ultimate manifestation of this aspect.
Mars trine Midheaven also helps explain his sense of adventure and sex symbols status among Russians. It means he promotes himself with contagious energy and expressive flair. This aspect suits a career in the military, sport, business, and politics. When Putin takes the lead, others will follow.
Jupiter square Pluto (2°58′) gives a tremendous drive to succeed through any obstacle. Putin’s determination to succeed is backed by a strong self-belief and a belief that he is destined to do something special.
Single-mindedness does lead to success, power, and influence but often at a cost. Success often comes with a troubled personal life and a string of broken relationships. Other challenges may involve extreme beliefs, overconfidence, overestimation of resources, criminality, violence, and legal troubles. The economic sanction on Russia and Putin personally is an example of this.
Jupiter square Midheaven (1°27′) gives a wide variety of interests like philosophy, social and cultural issues, religion and spirituality, morality, and ethics. It also gives great enthusiasm which has helped him succeed but it makes him hard to work with.
He can also exaggerate and become obsessive or too extreme. This can lead to arrogance, excessive pride, unpredictable and erratic behavior, addictions, and dramatic life. A lack of moral standards results in controversy and legal problems, especially in business dealings but also in personal relationships.
Putin can go through periods of great success and then suffer big setbacks. He has a highly competitive streak and can make extraordinary comebacks. However, this competitive spirit and a tendency toward taking things too far can lead to extreme rivalries, yet more controversy, and a tendency to overestimate his abilities and resources.
The following transits to the Vladimir Putin horoscope are corrected for precession (0°59′ added to natal positions).
Jan 27, 2022 – Saturn trine Sun (1 of 1) from Jan 17 to Feb 03 brought steady progress and big achievements due to extra patience, determination, and a strong sense of duty. It made Putin balanced and focused, and not distracted from his goals and plans.
Feb 25, 2022 – Saturn trine Saturn (1 of 1) from Feb 16 to Mar 06 coincided with Putin’s invasion of Ukraine. He was focused on increasing stability and security. He had greater control over his destiny and he understand what he was doing in the big picture. He was putting to use the knowledge he had gained through years of experience. For Putin, this was a time of achievement, recognition, respect, and more responsibility.
Mar 08, 2022 – Saturn conjunct North Node (1 of 3) from Feb 26 to Mar 17 has made Putin believe he is on the right path. He believes he is taking responsibility for his country in terms of its history and its future. He probably believes he is doing the right thing to honor the memory of his ancestors, especially his relatives who died in WWII.
Mar 18, 2022 – Saturn square Jupiter (1 of 3) from Mar 08 to 28 brings adversity, criticism, restriction, and limiting circumstances. The options for getting out of trouble are diminishing. Structures or long-held beliefs may break down leaving Putin feeling uncertain and unsure about the future. Previous overestimations and overconfidence will prove costly now. Financial hardship and lack of resources are possible. Events may force him to reassess previously held strong beliefs.
Mar 27, 2022 – Uranus opposite Venus (3 of 3) from Mar 04 to Apr 15 usually signals a change or unexpected events in love relationships. But unexpected change and tension can also apply to his finances and values. This could relate to the financial sanctions being imposed. It also makes Putin more likely to take risks that he normally would be too wary of.
Apr 02, 2022 – Saturn trine Neptune (1 of 3) from Mar 22 to Apr 13 brings more optimism, self-confidence, and determination to turn his dreams into reality. But this transit coincides with Saturn opposite Midheaven. So it also gives Putin a realistic understanding of the implications of any recent setbacks.
Apr 02, 2022 – Saturn opposite Midheaven (1 of 3) from Mar 22 to Apr 14 represents changing conditions and the beginning of a significant new phase of life. This transit may hold Putin back from his ambitions. Saturn may be delaying his progress. He probably needs more preparation work and needs to make sure he has the necessary resources and skills to advance and succeed. He needs to focus more energy and take more responsibility closer to home
Apr 21, 2022 – Saturn opposite Pluto (1 of 3) from Apr 08 to May 09 is a serious and demanding time of life. Financial pressure may force Putine to economize or downsize. His ability to make his own choices may be restricted by heavy responsibilities, rules, laws, or institutions and authorities.
Years of hard work may be at stake as powerful outside forces limit his options. This is a test of personal self-mastery. Time is running out to make up for past mistakes. His karmic credit is being tallied and fate will determine the outcome. Abuse of power, controlling or manipulative behavior, violence, or cruelty over recent years would be a reason to feel guilty and also fearful. This transit may manifest enemies, defeats, and losses.
Apr 28, 2022 – Saturn trine Mercury (1 of 3) and:
July 12, 2022 – Saturn Rx trine Mercury (2 of 3) from Apr 13 to July 28 gives a serious frame of mind with good concentration and attention to detail. It is time for making important decisions, and for serious discussions, negotiations, and business dealings. Increased patience and concentration will help Putin devise the best way forward. With common sense and an eye toward practical results, he should listen to his advisors to plan and strategize.
July 20, 2022 – Saturn Rx opposite Pluto (2 of 3) from July 01 to Aug 03
Aug 11, 2022 – Saturn Rx opposite Midheaven (2 of 3) from July 27 to Aug 24
Aug 11, 2022 – Saturn Rx trine Neptune (2 of 3) from July 28 to Aug 24
Aug 30, 2022 – Saturn Rx square Jupiter (2 of 3) from Aug 16 to Sept 15
Sept 17, 2022 – Saturn Rx conjunct North Node (2 of 3) and:
Nov 26, 2022 – Saturn conjunct North Node (3 of 3) from Sep 01 to Dec 11
Dec 13, 2022 – Saturn square Jupiter (3 of 3) from Nov 28 to Dec 24
Dec 29, 2022 – Saturn trine Neptune (3 of 3) from Dec 17 t0 Jan 07
Dec 29, 2022 – Saturn opposite Midheaven (3 of 3) from Dec 18 to Jan 08
Jan 13, 2023 – Saturn opposite Pluto (3 of 3) from Jan 03 to 21
Jan 17, 2023 – Saturn trine Mercury (1 of 3) from Jan 07 to 25
Vladimir Putin Horoscope Summary
Vladimir Putin has Sun conjunct fixed star Algorab which makes him aggressive, greedy, destructive, malevolent, fiendish, repulsive, and an agitator and liar. Pluto conjunct Midheaven gives him immense power and influence. But on a cruel and destructive fixed star, it also makes him a ruthless dictator.
His Mercury Neptune conjunction makes him very intuitive and other areas of his chart point to psychic ability. But Mercury and Neptune on fixed star Arcturus also give a reputation for achieving justice through power, and it makes him belligerent and quarrelsome.
2022 started with encouraging transits to the Vladimir Putin horoscope. These climaxed with transiting Saturn trine Saturn on February 25, 2022, only one day after he invaded Ukraine. But that is now in the past.
Thankfully for the rest of us, he is in for a world of misery for the rest of the year. Starting in mid-March 2022, he has transiting Saturn square Jupiter, opposite Midheaven, and opposite Pluto. Payback time for his ruthless power play.
