Russia Bombs Belgorod, Russia (April 20, 2023)
That Shakespearian quote is usually never understood by modern audiences. But what happened in Belgorod, Russia is a perfect example of it.
Hoist on your own petard is an expression that means to be hurt or victimized by your own scheme or device. It comes from Shakespeare’s Hamlet, where a petard was a small explosive that could sometimes blow up the engineer who set it. The expression can also apply to words or actions that backfire on you.Wikipedia
(Notice that there are modern variations of the phrase.)
Well, it turns out that there was more than one bomb that was dropped on the Russian city. Why this happened is not completely understood, nor is it clear why Russia would even admit to this event.
At any rate, this ‘small’ incident is a reminder that the whole conflict with Ukraine could be considered the same. If they hadn’t invaded their neighbour, none of this would have happened.
Just for interest sake, I’ve charted the bomb detonation: there are two inconjuncts, totally reliant on a correct timing. I checked the timing and it would appear that Moscow Time is not Daylight Savings.
Sun Inconjunct Ascendant
You may find that no matter how hard you try to show others who you really are, they misunderstand you somehow. This is because the angular relationship between your rising sign and Sun sign indicates that your internal energies are quite different from the energies that you show to the world. You are not intentionally dishonest with the world, you simply present a confusing complex of energies.
Jupiter Inconjunct Midheaven
The problem with this aspect is to find a balance between, on the one hand, expressing yourself creatively, perhaps artistically, and having a good time and, on the other hand, getting ahead in life, learning the ways of the world and finding an acceptable role in society. You know you will have to make sacrifices in order to accomplish anything of value.
Christopher … I think I’m right in saying this is not Russia’s first ‘blue on blue’ incident. I’m reminded also of another Shakespeare quote … comedy of errors.
