Why dealings with Moscow are potentially explosive for President Biden
Astro*Carto*Graphy® Analysis for Joe Biden by Robert Currey, Cert.A*C*G Int.
Moscow - confrontational and potentially explosive
On 9th November 2021, I posted"I plan to comment on Biden's ACG Map over time, but for now, here is a quick overview:
* Russia - very confrontational and potentially explosive if not handled carefully. "
March 2022 - Four months after I wrote this prediction, we are starting to see the impact of President Joe Biden's Mars setting and his (more distant) Moon rising line over Moscow.
Washington - Moscow: a History of Rivalry and Adversity
Recent US Presidents with Mars lines on Moscow, John F Kennedy and Richard Nixon had highly confrontational relations with the USSR. Kennedy confronted Premier of the Soviet Union, Khrushchev in the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962 and Nixon threatened Soviet President, Brezhnev with nuclear weapons in 1973.

An intensely personal and hostile clash of leaders
President Biden has a challenging Mars in Scorpio square to Pluto in his birth chart. While this can give great strength in adversity, it can take confrontations to an extreme and even self-destructive level. With Mars setting in Moscow, hostility was always likely to arise given the US/Russian history of adversity. With the addition of the Moon (which is in a wide opposition to Mars), this clash is personal in many ways.
So far, Biden has denounced Putin in the strongest terms: a “war criminal”, a “butcher” and a “thug”. When he broke convention by declaring that “this man cannot remain in power” he went off-script and appeared to be impulsive. All of this is typical of Mars and with the added emotion from the Moon.
As I write, the planet Uranus in Taurus is transiting opposite Biden’s Mars (peak 26 April 2022) so he is more volatile and more easily provoked by unexpected external events. This transit shows up as the Uranus Rising line moving over Moscow on his current Cyclo*Carto*Graphy Map.
The peak date of the Uranus/Mars transit was Saturday 26th April 2022 - the same day that Biden delivered his controversial comments on Putin in Warsaw.
The danger is peaking & there are ways for compromise
Now the good news is that Uranus is moving away from this dangerous aspect – never to return this close in his lifetime. Also, Biden’s best placed planet Neptune forms a line through Ukraine. Maybe, following his initial confrontational role, Biden can find a way to use his humanitarian qualities and compassion to bring about peace for the Ukrainian people. (There's too much to write about Biden and Neptune in Ukraine to fit in here - so expect another article).
And, yes these are dangerous and volatile times, but we all have choices. Kennedy resolved the Cuban Missile Crisis and by the time, Nixon resigned in 1974, he had restored good relations with Brezhenev and retained agreements with the USSR limiting the risk of nuclear war in place.
