Connecting the Dots of this Pivotal WWII Moment

Battle of Stalingrad (August 23, 1942 – February 2, 1943)

The Battle of Stalingrad (23 August 1942 – 2 February 1943) was a major battle on the Eastern Front of World War II where Nazi Germany and its allies unsuccessfully fought the Soviet Union for control of the city of Stalingrad (later renamed to Volgograd) in Southern Russia. The battle was marked by fierce close-quarters combat and direct assaults on civilians in air raids, with the battle being the epitome of urban warfare. The Battle of Stalingrad was the deadliest battle to take place during the Second World War and is one of the bloodiest battles in the history of warfare, with an estimated 2 million total casualties. Today, the Battle of Stalingrad is universally regarded as the turning point in the European Theatre of war, as it forced the Oberkommando der Wehrmacht (German High Command) to withdraw considerable military forces from other areas in occupied Europe to replace German losses on the Eastern Front. The victory at Stalingrad energized the Red Army and shifted the balance of power in the favour of the Soviets.


I’ve written about this event before, here. The timing of the opening reign of bombardment is not exactly known, so I have set the clock for noon, to see what the energies were for the day.

As it happens there is only one inconjunct, between Uranus and the Ascendant. Isn’t it strange that the Soviets named one of their counter-offensives, Operation Uranus?

Uranus Inconjunct Ascendant

Your need to be free and do what you want is often in conflict with what others require of you and even with what you feel you ought to do. Sometimes this conflict can cause considerable physical and emotional tension. The task you face is to organize your life in a disciplined way that will enable you to satisfy your need for freedom through your everyday activities. One way to accomplish this is by figuring out your own methods for doing your work. Or you may choose to do the most interesting and exciting tasks, which are often the most difficult, so that others shy away from them.

The End of the Battle

The only time that was noted in the Wikipedia post was 4:00 am on the day the battle ended. But that only stated that someone from the German ranks went to the Soviets to negotiate a surrender. So I randomized the time, instead, and got a huge surprise.

There’s a triple! Yod pointing at the Moon, Mars and the Midheaven. Close enough for jazz, eh? And then I remembered my post about X marking the spot. A solar eclipse happened only three days later, triggering the Angel point @ 15° Aquarius, So it seems that Hitler and the Nazis forgot to check for significant astrological signs in the heavens.

(And, it seems that Putin has made a similar mistake in deciding to fight a ‘special military operation’ in Ukraine. He may meet the same surprising result.)

Looks familiar…
