Putin and Ramaphosa – born 1952


Interestingly both leaders were born in 1952. Putin on 7 October and Ramaphosa on 17 November.


Saturn conjunct Neptune square Uranus.

Saturn conjunct Neptune sextile Pluto.


Saturn is exalted in Libra and this emphasises the desire to be in control from a point of view of knowing what is right. Saturn conjunct Neptune speaks about an idealist. Dreaming of a better society. It also speaks about the possibility of being delusional, dreams not in touch with reality. This conjunction speaks about being disillusioned with the system at particular stages in life.


Saturn/Neptune sextile Pluto – desire for power and control especially with Pluto in Leo.

Saturn/Neptune square Uranus – desire to break the system with revolution and create an ideal society.


The years 1992, 1993 and 1994 (Uranus and Neptune transits) were significant for both these individuals in terms of their desire to create changes in society. And we know what happened to SA at that time. 2016/2017/2018/2019 (Uranus and Pluto transits) were equally significant and once again indicated a time of personal and societal change. Pluto speaks about destruction and decay and the need to discard outdated ideals from past. Uranus wants a significant change integrating innovation and technology. We can see what has happened to SA in this time. The dream did not materialise quite as anticipated and something new needs to be created – for self and society.
