***ASTROLOGY OF A KREMLIN COUP?***
***ASTROLOGY OF A KREMLIN COUP?***
August 21st, 1996

Especially since Mikhail Gorbachev rose to power in Moscow during
the mid-1980's, political events in Russia have been coinciding with
significant astrological events. The implication of this is that
history is being intentionally shaped by Russia's ruling elite
according to the stars as part of some sort of multi-year plan. There
is reason to suspect that history is now being shaped toward a Kremlin
coup according to astrology. (For a broader examination of how recent
history has been shaped according to astrology, see my "Kremlin
Astrology" article at http://www.ucc.uconn.edu/~jpa94001/j33.html .)
This week marks the fifth anniversary of the failed August coup in
1991 that supposedly brought an end to Soviet Communism. Between
August 19th and August 22nd, 1991, a coup attempt by "hardliners"
against then Soviet Premiere Mikhail Gorbachev was staged in Moscow.
To the relief of the West, this coup apparently failed after which the
Communist Party supposedly voted itself out of power.
With this fifth anniversary of the failed August 1991 coup in
Moscow, there are again rumblings of political turmoil in the Kremlin.
Specifically, Boris Yeltsin's health is reportedly failing while a
major crisis is being orchestrated in the rebel Russian republic of
Chechnya. In the same way that Yeltsin disappeared for "nose surgery"
when Russia first ordered Russian troops to invade Chechnya, he is
again absent as Russian troops are apparently being ordered to
violently retake the Chechen capital city of Grozny from rebel forces.
Supposedly due to the lack of leadership from Yeltsin, Russian
generals in Chechnya are seemingly out-of-control and are reportedly
issuing their own directives without, or with forged, approval from
Russian President Boris Yeltsin. Consequently, Russia's newly
appointed hardline Security Chief, Alexander Lebed, is seemingly
making attempt to take control of the situation by going to Chechnya
to arrange a ceasefire and bring the Russian army to order. The
implication of all this is that Yeltsin is no longer able to govern
Russia and hardline forces, either Lebed or other elements of Russia's
military, are now taking over power in Moscow in response to the
newest Chechen crisis.
As overviewed in my other articles, what is being witnessed is,
for all intents and purposes, staged history. In order to see this,
one does not have to look to recent history so much as to the stars.
As can be seen below, recent political crises in Russia and key events
in the Chechen conflict have coincided time and time again with
significant astrological configurations:
1. *August 19th, 1991: Alignment of Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and
Jupiter in the zodiac sign of Leo.
A failed coup attempt by communist hardliners is staged in Moscow
which supposedly brings an end to the Communist Party and Soviet
2. *October 4th, 1993: Pluto conjunct moon squares (90-degree angle)
Saturn and trines (120-degree angle) Venus,
Uranus and Neptune.
Political chaos erupts in Moscow following Russian President Boris
Yeltsin's disbanding of the former-Soviet parliament.
3. *December 13th, 1993: Alignment of Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and
Mars in Sagitarrius.
Communists and Nationalists win the elections for a new Russian
parliament. Of particular surprise is the success of the "Liberal
Democratic Party (?!) led by Hitler-like nationalist Vladimir
4. *December 11th, 1994: Mars squares conjunction of Pluto & Jupiter.
Russia invades the breakaway republic of Chechnya.
5. *June 14th, 1995: Mars squares alignment of Mercury, Venus and
Similar to configuration on December 11th, 1994 when Russia
invaded Chechnya. This time, a large group of Chechen rebels attack
a town in southern Russia and take a few thousand Russians hostage at
a hospital. Hundreds are killed and the rebels eventually escaped.
6. *July 12th, 1995: Alignment of Sun, Moon, Neptune and Uranus
trines (120-degree angle) Mars and sextiles
(60-degree angle) Saturn and Pluto.
Russian President Boris Yeltsin reportedly suffers a heart attack.
7. *October 24th, 1995: Mars and Pluto conjunct total solar eclipse.
Russian President Boris Yetsin suffers a second heart attack.
8. *December 21st/22nd, 1995: 8-planet alignment of Sun, Moon,
Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter,
Neptune and Uranus in Capricorn on
the winter solstice.
Communists and nationalists reportedly win in the election of a
new Russian parliament. The political party associated with Boris
Yeltsin's government placed a weak third in the election thus
signalling the coming end to Western-style reform in Russia.
During this summer, key political events in Russia and military
events in Chechnya have again been coinciding with significant
astrological configurations. As can be seen, this time around the
astrological events specifically imply a negative fate for the current
*June 16th, 1996: 6-planet alignment of Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus,
Mars and Pluto near summer solstice.
Russian presidential elections take place with a virtual tie
between the Communist candidate and Boris Yeltsin. To insure victory
in the run-off election, Yeltsin appoints the third place candidate-
the hardline, former Russian general, Alexander Lebed- to be his new
*June 30th, 1996: A full "bluemoon" is opposed by Jupiter, the planet
of leaders, and squared by Saturn, the planet
The "fate" of the Russian "leader", Boris Yeltsin, becomes a
concern as the Russian president disappears from public view,
supposedly due to failing health, going into the run-off Russian
presidential election he reportedly wins on July 3rd.
*August 8th, 1996: Mars, the planet of war, opposes Jupiter and
squares Saturn, the planets of leadership and
Boris Yeltsin's fate becomes an even greater concern with his
August 9th inauguration. In his first public appearance since the
run-off election, the Russian President appears frail, ill and his
speech is slurred.
Meanwhile, just prior to the inauguration, Chechen rebels
reportedly storm the Chechen capital of Grozny and retake it from
occupying Russian military forces.
The developments this summer now appear to be coming to a head.
According to some reports, Russian President Boris Yeltsin is in a
heart clinic and may undergo surgery "in the coming hours".
Meanwhile, a deadline for midnight tonight (EST) (I think it is
midnight EST or it is at least close to then) has been set for Chechen
civilians to flee their capital city of Grozny before the Russian army
apparently plans a massive bombardment to annihilate occupying rebel
forces. In recent hours, Security Chief Alexander Lebed has
apparently brokered a ceasefire agreement with Chechen rebel leaders
to avert the "impending madness" Russian army commanders have
threatened to unleash. Even so, the latest news is a bombardment of
the city could take place in violation of Lebed's orders. All in all,
going into August 22nd and the fifth anniversary of the end of the
August 1991 coup attempt in Moscow that almost resulted in the return
to power by Russian hardliners, a new political crisis is developing
that could seemingly precipitate another coup attempt by hardline
Notably, such a coup attempt may be slated for tomorrow, or at
least some sort of crisis may be planned for tomorrow, given that at
midnight (EST), the same time as the ultimatum for Grozny, there is a
significant astrological configuration involving Pluto, the planet of
explosive transformation and nuclear energy. Specifically, Pluto and
the Moon will come into conjunction and square (90-degree angle) the
Sun (see astrolog chart below). As explained in previous articles,
such "squares" are supposed to have a negative implication. Notably,
at the current juncture, Mars and Venus are in conjunction and are
opposed by Jupiter which is squared by Saturn (as explained above, the
latter two planets symbolize the "fate of leaders"). All in all, the
astrological configuration going into tomorrow, which is the fifth
anniversary of the end of the August 1991 coup in Moscow, seems to
symbolize an explosive transformation concerning the fate of Russian
leadership. If Kremlin's ruling elite read the stars as such, then
this may be the history they are about to stage.

The fifth anniversary of the end of the hardline coup in August
1991 that supposedly brought an end to Soviet Communism.
A deadline has been set for this date by Russian army commanders
in Chechnya for civilians to flee Grozny before massive Russian
military force will reportedly be used to take back the Chechen
capital from rebels. Meanwhile, Yeltsin leaves Moscow amid rumors
that he is at a heart clinic where a decision is to be made about
surgery. A power struggle in the Kremlin is supposedly now underway
involving Alexander Lebed who is in Chechnya seeking to establish a
ceasefire before "madness" occurs.
-Military Ultimatium Against Grozny Is Lifted-
GROZNY, Russia (Aug 21, 1996 10:41 p.m. EDT) -- President Boris
Yeltsin's security chief declared Wednesday that he had won a reprieve
for the embattled people of Grozny, on the eve of a threatened all-out
military assault on the rebel capital.
Alexander Lebed, shuttling between rebel and military bases late into
the night, dismissed as a "bad joke" the ultimatum issued by Yeltsin's
army for civilians to evacuate Grozny by Thursday morning or face a
devastating aerial attack.
But it remained far from certain whether the retired general's
assertive moves -- and reports of an informal new truce agreed to by
separatist rebels -- would prevent the attack or preclude a new
offensive in the near future.
The Russian military, which unleashed a savage artillery assault on
the city Wednesday, often seems to be following its own orders in
Chechnya, and has ignored past commands by Yeltsin not to bomb Grozny.
There was no word from the military on Lebed's announcement that the
bombing was off.
Past cease-fire deals have failed, and the ailing president himself
has been silent on the 20-month-old war for weeks.
Putting his own authority on the line, Lebed flew to Chechnya in the
hours before the deadline and said after meeting with both sides that
he was personally withdrawing the army ultimatum.
Meeting with separatist leaders, Lebed said that the rebels had agreed
to an immediate cease-fire, which he said would head off the attack,
BBC Television reported.
Lebed then headed back to the Russian military command to ensure the
relative peace would hold. New talks were scheduled with the rebels
"No such bombardments will happen," the ITAR-Tass news agency quoted
him as saying after talking with rebel chief Zelimkhan Yandarbiyev and
his military commander Aslan Maskhadov in Noviye Atagi village south
"It's already clear to everyone, to my mind, that issuing an ultimatum
was a bad joke."
Maskhadov endorsed Lebed's mediation, according to ITAR-Tass.
Rebels were still determined to defeat Russia but "we're trying to all
we can to save face with one another," the news agency quoted the
rebel commander as saying.
The military attack Wednesday threatened civilians trying to escape
Hundreds of shells from heavy artillery slammed into the city center.
Salvos from multiple rocket launchers, bombs from jet fighters and
rockets from helicopter gunships combined for a ferocious bombardment
that could be heard 20 miles away.
The acting commander who issued the ultimatum Monday night, Gen.
Konstantin Pulikovsky, on Wednesday turned Russia's Chechnya operation
back over to Lt. Gen. Vyacheslav Tikhomirov, who had been on vacation.
But Tikhomirov's failure to lift the ultimatum stirred panic, anger
and worldwide calls for Moscow to call it off. President Clinton sent
Yeltsin a letter asking that the assault be averted.
Pulikovsky was publicly reprimanded Wednesday by Defense Minister Igor
Rodionov and criticized by Lebed, whom Yeltsin put in charge of ending
the war against Chechen independence.
"It's possible to take the city, of course," Lebed said on his arrival
in Chechnya. "Even Berlin was taken. But we spent tens of thousands of
people's lives, tens of thousands of citizens and soldiers. Do we
Lebed, who initiated new peace talks last week after separatists had
overrun the city on Aug. 6, has said air raids would only expand the
Anywhere from 50,000 to 200,000 civilians remained in Grozny, which
had a prewar population of 400,000.
Yeltsin has remained largely out of the picture for two months with
what the Kremlin calls fatigue and observers say is likely a
recurrence of heart problems. The Interfax news agency quoted a source
close to the president as saying he planned to be back in the Kremlin
on Thursday after a brief retreat at a lake resort northwest of
Hundreds of Russian soldiers have been killed and at least 1,000 have
been wounded in the rebel assault on Grozny. More than 30,000 people
have been killed since Moscow sent in troops in December 1994 to end
the southern republic's self-proclaimed independence.
