Crimea - flashpoint for war?

Politicians and diplomats are murmuring dire words of warning over Russia’s grab for Crimea. Worst crisis of this century. Is it a repeat of Serbia 1914 which triggered World War 1? No.

 

Certainly relations between USA and Russia are in for a complete turnaround but the days of gunboat diplomacy between great imperial powers jostling for supremacy are gone. Europe is paralysed by its need for Russian gas; the UK by its need and greed for Russian oligarchs’ cash; and Obama is hardly a war mongerer. Options for the west are exceptionally limited and Putin knows it. Though even his Presidency is in for a swampy patch from later this month as tr Neptune squares Mars.

 

  World War 1 started on an approaching Saturn Pluto conjunction in Cancer, indeed Pluto was at 0 degrees Cancer so just entering that long run of emotionally devastating changes.

 World War 11 started with Pluto just into Leo square Saturn.

  Even the Crimean War when France and Britain declared war on Russia in 1854 there was a Saturn in Aquarius square Pluto in Taurus.

 

  Saturn Pluto is really the signature for major wars.  The next one turns up in 2019 with Saturn conjunct Pluto around 20 degrees Capricorn.

 

 The Uranus square Pluto around at the moment till mid decade is prone to revolutions and internal civil wars but not outright super-power versus super-power jousts.
