Amazingly the United States, and Russia share water sign rising signs to begin their charts. The United States is a Scorpio, and Russia is a Cancer. The United Sates can be a peace maker, or a warmonger, but so can Russia because of the degree of the sign of Cancer.
On July 4, 2015 two Russian fighter jets were seen off the coast of Alaska at approximately 10:30 am EDT, and at 11:00 am EDT two more were intercepted off the coast of California. The question would probably be ” why were they off the American coast”.
Putin is a Libra Sun sign with his Moon in Gemini. Certainly with the present day planets he is asserting himself, and letting everyone know he is capable of doing what he wants. Putin wants to show his strength, and he wants respect from those he considers adversaries. Yes he can manipulate, behave as a dictator, and place himself in a position that appears untouchable. But there is one period that will cause him problems, but I am sure he is aware of it because he has an astrologer. I must admit his astrologer is quite good
I believe the flights along America’s coast are for show of strength and ability, but pay attention to Putin’s decisions as he should not be ignored.
