Today, the Russian Ministry of Defense announced that the commander (Vice Admiral Viktor Kravchuk) and chief of staff (Rear Admiral Sergei Popov) of the Baltic Fleet were both fired for cause, as were several other unnamed senior officials at the fleet. This was the largest mass replacement of senior naval officials in the Russian Navy since the Soviet period.

The last solar eclipse of March 9 took place in tropical Pisces about which Dane Rudhyar wrote:
Pisces is an era of storms and of wholesale disintegration. But Piscean winds of destiny may impel men of vision and courage to discover many a "new world," as much as they do destroy or suffocate the many who stubbornly resist change. Pisces is an era of often sharp and violent repolarization. It is an era of purgation and cleansing.
At the Russian capital, Moscow the eclipse was anchored to a Uranus-Pluto-Zeus T-square that straddled the horizon. The sign Pisces rules the ocean and the TNP Zeus with its connection to guns and explosives is by association linked to the military so that the navy is implicated here. About the Uranus-Pluto square Bill Herbst writes.
People who are aware of at least some of the symbolic meanings of the Uranus-Pluto square need to understand that Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn are both double-sided. One isn’t “good” and the other “bad.” That’s far too simplistic. Each planet-sign pair has positive and negative meanings as judged by context and perspective. Uranus in Aries can mean standing up for individual freedom through the protection (and sometimes the reassertion) of personal rights against the draconian power of a collective — whether governmental, corporate, or social — that no longer considers the needs of individuals, which is the dark side of Pluto in Capricorn (rule by and for a privileged oligarchy). But the equations can work the other way, too. The power of the collective to force conformity against “outlaws” who harm society can be the cavalry riding to the rescue to defend the common good by preventing willful, insensitive, or even sociopathic depredations by individuals or companies whose actions harm everyone’s safety and well-being.
Martha Wescott provides the following delineation:
To be aware that prominent persons are under substantial pressure; to see abuses of power through misuse of office, position, laws and procedures; to hear of corruption in high places; to recognise humiliation through loss of position.
Progressing the eclipse chart to July 4, the date of the news brings the Uranus-Pluto-Zeus T-square to an alignment with the meridian, thereby triggering it.
