I appreciate and love my supporters, and honestly, it’s probably because I’m from the United States that the majority of my audience and support comes from America. It’s rare to see another country win in that area, so when it happens, I’m compelled to recognize it.
Let me start by saying thank you to the Romanian people.
Much love and gratitude sent your way, and to show my appreciation, I decided to do something special in this post.
Right now, today, Romania is a member state of the European Union, but for a while after World War II, Romania was a socialist republic and a member of the Warsaw Pact. Romania finally broke free ending 42 years of communist rule in their country during the Romanian Revolution, which took place in 1989 from December 16th to December 25th. Right in the midst of the Christmas Holiday!
The history of Romania is quite interesting and their culture is rich.
I decided to do two general readings for Romania. The first was something personal where I shuffle and pick a card from a traditional deck of 52 playing cards. I can give an interpretation and reading based on the card.
The second thing is a short astrological analysis of the chart for December 16, 1989, at 9:00 AM in the city of Timisoara, the date and place where their revolution began.
Now, if a card happens to fall out of the deck while I’m shuffling it for a reading, that’s the card I go with immediately. I just started the shuffle and Romania’s card fell out. It happened to be an Ace of Hearts, and it’s an interesting card in itself, but I just said “wow” to myself after sending you guys love and appreciation. Here I am sending love and the Ace of Hearts falls out of the deck!
As coincidental as that seems, it wasn’t, and after taking a brief look at the Astrological Chart, it all made sense.
Once again, thank you ASTRO DOT COM! Your charts are my favorite!
It’s hard to look at this chart without your attention going right to the five planets in conjunction in the 1st House. It’s very powerful and rare alignment. The 1st House is the house of self, it’s a personal house, and it has everything to do with the way you see yourself and the way others see you.
Capricorn is the sign on the ascendant, and Capricorn rules the 10th House, an area that represents public image. With an overload of planets coming together in a 1st house occupied by Capricorn, there’s a ton of energy working towards changing and transforming the self (The Romanian People). The timing couldn’t be any better either with Capricorn rising.
As a country, Romania was concerned with themselves (their view of themselves and the view the rest of the world had of them).
Moving up the chart’s left side, we see the sun in Sagittarius in the 12th House. The 12th House is known as the house of secrets, and it does have a reputation for being a territory that’s negative, but that’s because this is the place where the limitations placed on our lives are defined. This is the place where Romania’s limitations as a country are defined. The energy here manifests into disappointments, accidents, trouble, and self-defeat. The 12th house is the House of Karma as it would contain the rewards and punishments for the deeds committed.
For a country about to begin a revolution, this an interesting placement for the Sun. The Sun is the only giver in astrology. The Sun is the force that sustains all life and grants will. God was on Romania’s side for sure as the Sun in Sagittarius would give Romania the energy necessary for conquering those 12th House issues. Sagittarius is mutable fire, that’s a centaur (the archer, half man and half horse) charged with emotional adaptability. That’s what’s required for war, emotional fire that’s not overwhelming to the point that you set yourself ablaze. It’s a controlled rage that shows the people are doing what’s necessary and what they have to do.
Mars in the 11th House: Mars is vitality, it’s aggression, and in the 11th House it’s granting Romania the power to reach for the future of their choice. The 11th House is about hopes and wishes and friendship. Whenever a country goes to war, I’m sure the security of the future their nation is factored into their decision, and with Mars in the 11th House, that’s exactly what this shows.
I promised myself I would keep this short, so I’ll look at one last placement, which ties into the story about the Ace of Hearts.
Before I did the astrological reading I shuffled the deck, and as fate would have it, the Ace of Hearts fell out.
The Ace of Hearts represents relationships and love. In the wild world of Metasymbology, the Ace of Hearts symbolizes the desire to obtain what’s desired most, and that’s LOVE. The birthday associated with this card is December 30th (Capricorn)! Now, are you starting to understand why I referred to the falling out of this specific card as fate? The war lasted from December 16th to December 25th, and this card represents December 30th. If we put it all together, “it’s a desire to obtain love when it’s all said and done.”
Was Romania a nation longing to love itself and to be loved by the rest of the world?
Well, a lot of people associate Chiron with Virgo, but because Chiron is a centaur, it’s directly associated with Sagittarius in my book.
If you look at the right side of the chart you’ll see a symbol that looks like a little key, that’s Chiron. Chiron represents our deepest core wound. It represents an affliction that we either carried into this life from a previous one, or something that happened to us when we were really young. Unless properly healed, Chiron’s wound will last a life time.
If we consider Romania as a country, we see a nation of people bearing the wound represented by Chiron’s placement in Cancer.
As a nation wounded before war, Chiron’s placement tells us the people of Romania felt abandoned, un-loveable, full of unresolved grief, and suicidal ideation.
Under communist rule, this was the suffering endured by Romanians. Abandoned, un-loveable, and without a future.
Assuming Romanians were cured of this core wound after the war, a healed nation would feel a secure sense of home, nurturing, and self-love from the deepest levels.
So, looking back to the beginning where this reading started with the conjunction in Capricorn in the 1st House, the bigger picture should be in HD now. Capricorn is an earth sign, the earth is our home planet, and earth signs are about the senses.
When sensations (earth signs) are involved, flexibility is said to be the path to happiness, and that’s exactly what we got from mutable Sagittarius powered by the Sun. No one wants to go to war, but sometimes it’s necessary- flexibility!
Sagittarius powered by the Sun gave Romania what they needed to conquer those 12th House issues, which thanks to Chiron, we now know were being caused by a sense of not feeling home, a sense of not being able to love themselves, and a sense of feeling abandoned. This was about the change and transformation of the 1st House, the self-Romania’s view of themselves and how the world saw them, this was about securing a better and brighter future with hopes and wishes (Mars in the 11th), and this was about curing the wound-the suffering endured by the Romanian people brought on by 42 years of communist rule.
You tell me. Was the Ace of Hearts a fate card or what?!?!
And the answer is yes. Romania was a nation longing to love itself and to be loved by the rest of the world. Chiron showed us that.
Once again, Romania, thank you for checking in. I hope you enjoyed the reading.
