War in Ukraine
Great, yes, I told Corey about that last year, but didn't know he was teaching a course on mundane, but glad that he is.
I've been working on this and following the news quite closely. While armed attacks took place before, what has been considered the official declaration of war and what has prompted the strongest actions in terms of diplomatic measures, sanctions, and exclusion from financial and cultural international networks (exclusion from SWIFT, downgrading of Russia's credit score, canceling of Gazprom, Germany increasing its NATO commitments to 2 %, Western countries committing more military funds and arms to help Ukraine, the EU considering a fast track to EU accession for Ukraine, etc.) is Putin's speech on February 24th, 2022.
This speech was preceded and succeeded by more aggressive military action (minutes before and after on the same day) than previously seen and was given from Moscow, Russia. The closest time I could find for the actual declaration in credible news sources is 5:45 AM Moscow time. Due to its significance at an international level, I have been using this time for an 8th bhava Prasna and would argue that at a mundane level this time is more significant than times of previous armed attacks in the conflict.
In most sources I've read, the declaration of war on February 24th also coincided with the actual invasion (as well as missile attacks and explosions across cities like Odessa, Dnipro, Mariupol and Kyiv). Whereas in January and prior to February 24th, Russia had started deploying troops close to the Ukranian border clearly planning the invasion, and several world leaders and international bodies such as the UN Security Council were attempting to deter Putin from an invasion, but no significant military action had been taken yet then.
Its not that one works better than the other, but you want to use both lunar and solar years for world events. Even for predicting the market you want to look at each lunar month and each solar month. The solar time, solar month and solar year, show the foundation of what is happening, the lunar month the reaction and in the world of humans, reaction is often the more telling effect.
Check this timeline from Aljazeera Network :
I'm working on finding out the exact time of Putins war deceleration. So far I have narrowed it to 5:40 - 5:45 A.M. Moscow time. Close to what @francesca-2 mentioned.
Please also note that on February 21 Ukrainian military opened Fire on Dontesk Republic militia against the Minsk Agreement. Dontesk militia has several hundred Russian participants which may even be unofficial Russian solders. These attacks where continuing and escalating when Russia attacked Ukraine. Even though Dontesk is part of Ukraine this is an unofficial war between Russia and Ukraine. Dose this have any Astrological Value in your research?
Can anyone who knows about mundane astrology comment on this predictions: predictions I haven't studied any mundane astrology, but it seems this is a good opportunity to learn something. Besides it could show merits of different zodiacs. I wonder if the predictions are worse or better in the tropical?
