The rise of Yugoslavia c.1918

The first iteration of Yugoslavia was after World War I when it was created from several southern Balkan Republics.   This was done on December 1, 1918 in Belgrade, Serbia. Its chart gives it a 03 Pisces rising in the twelfth house, highlighting how much of the country was tied to tradition but also like the Hyperion symbol of an “ultra light aircraft” trying to transcend its history in an experimental creation of a “nation state.”

It did not work as the major t-square in its chart shows because Saturn in the sixth is opposing Uranus in the twelfth & highlights that the populace did not like being forced into a plastic creation by outside powers – the point focus of the Moon at 15 Scorpio (an investigative reporter in hot pursuit of news”  on the creative eighth house cusp.



Creative is a good word for how Yugoslavia was made, cobbling various republics from the fallen Turkish Ottoman Empire excluding only Albania by a concord from the Allied powers (the Part of Fortune at 07 Aquarius) but not getting any input from the populace itself.  Instead the PoF opposite Neptune in the fifth at 10 Leo, like a flickering tv monitor, the treatise relied on what they thought was a reasonable ignoring the signal to noise ratio in their victory jubilation.

It was short lived success, primarily because the See-saw that runs this amalgamated country, could not agree on whether a totalitarian king would run it or a (Jupiter 14 Cancer, keyword Hope)  as they desired, a bunch of motley autonomous republics.  The various provinces had nothing in common:  Serbia was Eastern Orthodox, Bosnia Moslem thanks to the Turkish importation pogroms, Slovenia, Croatia and Montenegro basically Roman Catholic, hence the preponderance of planets in the religious ninth house.50496-004-C97672B1.jpg

Originally the politics ran along the population lines:  Serbia had the most people and it was given the most power.  The Slovenes and Croats disagreed and so from 1919 the boundaries and names of the country changed and King Peter I who was put in power,  ruled like the Ottomans before him with an iron fist.  He died shortly afterward in 1921 at the grand age of seventy-seven, but his son Alexander I was no better.

Finally fed up with the tyrant, he was assassinated in Paris France on October 9, 1934 by Bulgarian Vlado Chernozemski of the Internal Macedonia revolutionary Organisation, and his eleven year old son Peter  II ascended the throne. A Regency Council was established because the king was underage of ascension, led by his father’s cousin, Prince Paul, and the Kingdom of the Serbs, Croats and Slovenes was officially changed to Yugoslavia.

After World War things changed again, as the  apex of the yod at the eleventh house creates a fifth house (offspring)  midpoint and the country was re-established as Yugoslavia by one of it’s own native sons:  Josip Broz of Kumrovec, who had been a World War I hero and hailed from a small village near Zagreb, Croatia rose up and took control.    Saturn, intercepted in the sixth house of duty, and conjunct the fixed Star Regulus  with the symbol of “dynamite factory, ” never saw it coming.
