Russian Patriarch Kirill was enthroned in Moscow on Sunday, 1st of February 2009, at 10am.
This is a good chart for the Russian Church and people: the exalted ruler of ascendent Mars is in 11th house of achievements, the Moon (the people) is in the ascendent (congregation loving Patriarch); two benefics (note exalted Venus) in 12th house promise protection. Ruler of 9th house (religion) is in 12th, but since the 12th is quite big in this chart, Jupiter is actually close to MC, which means that in directions MC will come to Jupiter (with Mercury and Mars on the way).
Retro Mercury rules 2nd and 3rd – I expect the Patriarch will soon deal with some financial and organization matters inside the church, but since his significator Mars is so strong accidentally and dignified, when Mercury turns direct and joins Mars, these will be resolved (not with ease, though). Note that Moon is coming to square Mars, which might signify tensions, too.
The loaded 12th house means dealing with hidden opponents, as well as performing sacred rituals and leading isolated monastic life.
It is a good chart for the Church and congregation.
