To the casual observer, Putin's planned visits to Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, and Kyrgyzstan over the next two days might seem like routine pit stops. But there's much more to this story. Eurasia is now sitting in the geopolitical driver's seat, and Putin is seizing the moment to accelerate his vision for regional economic integration based on consensus and respect for national sovereignty.

Ever since it entered Libra back in September, Jupiter has been progressing into a T-square formation with Uranus and Pluto, with all three now positioned in cardinal signs. A T-square consists of two planets opposing one another, with each simultaneously squaring a third planet.
The Jupiter-Uranus-Pluto T-square is now building toward a crescendo as Mars begins to trigger the combination. It begins by first squaring Pluto (Feb.22) and then conjoining Uranus and opposing Jupiter (Feb.27). A chart for the Mars-Uranus conjunction today drawn for Moscow has the T-square placed very significantly on the meridian.
Jupiter in Libra advocates for fairness over domination, and gracefully negotiates win-win solutions for all parties concerned. These are some of Libra's finest qualities, and Jupiter's presence there beckons us to invest greater enthusiasm and broad-sweeping vision in such approaches, as a counterbalance to both impetuous one-sided action in the name of 'change' (Uranus in Aries) and covert authoritarian dealings which seek to strengthen and secure existing status-quos by any means necessary (Pluto in Capricorn).
Putin (DOB: Oct. 7, 1952) has a Sun-Saturn-Neptune conjunction in Libra over which Jupiter is currently transiting. It is, therefore, no surprise that his approach to Eurasian partnerships is being welcomed by all. In contrast, the various trade deals that the US has been promoting- TTIP, CETA, TISA and the like, are all shadowy unaccountable acronyms designed to enrich the few via extreme neoliberal capitalism under the guise of free trade. In May 2016, Wikileaks confirmed that TTIP amounted to “a huge transfer of power from people to big business.”
