The world has watched in astonishment as Volodymyr Zelensky has led Ukraine in its stand against the formidable Russian invasion. I’ve heard more than one person ask how this former comedian and actor has the internal resources to rise to this occasion. That intriguing question led me to take a quick peek at his birth chart to see what evolutionary astrology might have to say about him. As it turns out, quite a lot, actually.
Evolutionary astrology begins with the premise that we all have lived many lifetimes and we evolve spiritually through the many lessons we encounter along the way. To understand the themes associated with anyone’s past lives, we must look to the south node in the birth chart. Zelensky’s south node is in Aries (11th House). Let’s begin there because it reveals much about what his soul has been through.
Aries is associated with war. This is an adrenaline driven energy. Raw energy is available, and confrontations are likely. Suffice to say, Zelensky has known war, at least on some level. It is very possible that he experienced first-hand, the violence of the battlefield and that this has been a recurring pattern for him. However, it may not be the only context for the use of the mars’ energy. There can also be situations which involve challenges or do-or-die scenarios which involve an individual challenging themselves in hazardous situations. These are things that get that adrenaline pumping. Think mountain climbing, car racing, high stakes gamboling, and even political contests. Regardless of which of these happened, astrologer Steven Forrest has written of the Aries’ south node individual, “There are, inborn in this soul, the reflexes of a warrior.” So as the world keeps asking about that Ukrainian comedian, perhaps they are missing precisely who Volodymyr Zelensky really is on a soul level. That comedian mask hides the warrior and he’s done the warrior-thing for lifetimes…
The 11th House placement also gives us further insight into Zelensky’s past lives. This house is associated with fellowship and the groups we belong to because we share a common interest. Zelensky had past lives where his sense of individuality was overtaken by the interests of the group. There were collective social forces that did not allow him to fully express himself. Because of the connection to Venus in his chart, this was probably more about him going along with the prevailing belief system and playing by conventional societal rules. Nevertheless, Zelensky has a history of being caught up in broad historical currents which occurred in previous homelands. He identifies with the collective and has a pattern of sacrificing his inner self for the sake of the group.
I hope all this makes you smile a little more when next you hear something about that Ukrainian comedian!
