comprehensive verification of his birth time (called

2014- 2015 Uranus is 180 degrees to Putin's Sun between May 2014 and
February 2015. The Sun rules his 10th house of career. Upsets with
others are likely, and there is the possibility of external
events (other people or world events) enforcing a career change on him.
Pluto will be 90 degrees to Putin's Sun throughout 2015. Pluto (the
most powerful planet in the Zodiac) may enforce (the 90 degree aspect)
a change in Putin's career (ruled by the Sun) in 2015. Saturn is 180
degrees from Putin's Moon between January and October 2015. He will be
forced to come to terms with the emotionally inevitable and
unavoidable, in order to free himself from emotional isolation.
Depression will overwhelm him. He could have problems with
his blood (eg high blood pressure, anaemia). Saturn is 45
degrees to his Sun between December 2014 and July-August (very strong)
2015. Greater problems than usual, health problems, family problems and
a lack of initiative are indicated. Then Neptune comes 135 degrees to
Putin's Neptune between March 2015 and January 2016. Self
deception, making wrong decisions, acting prematurely and
feeling like he is having a nervous breakdown will enter Putin's life.
Extreme pressure on Putin is building from mid December 2014

2012. It is a time of complete exhaustion for him, where he feels burnt
out and where health problems and the feeling that he is "living in a
cemetery" are themes dominating his life. In this time close friends,
relatives or pets may well get seriously ill and die. In the first
eight months of 2011, Neptune was 135 degrees and
Saturn was 45º to Putin's Sun. This suggests a time of a

serious depression or other illnesses mainfesting by mid 2012. Putin
will be aware of people around him laughing behind his back at his
behaviour. The Neptune Moon combination suggests a time where
Putin is unable to see reality clearly at all. He will struggle
against instability and weakness, and most likely health

sanity may be seriously tested in this time.

health problems (of course nothing of his life is made public). Putin

politician. There are rumours he has stolen up to $40 billion from the
Russian people. Putin has a Scorpio

his life is to be expected. Perhaps there
will be an assassination attempt on Putin or will he be involved in a
