[with Astrology notes by Sy Scholfield]:
Rudolf Khametovich Nureyev (17 March 1938 – 6 January 1993) was a Russian Tatar dancer from the former Soviet Union, primarily known for his work in ballet. Nureyev's artistic skills explored expressive areas of the dance, providing a new role to the male ballet dancer who once served only as support to the women.
He defected to the West, despite KGB efforts to stop him. According to KGB archives studied by Peter Watson, Nikita Khrushchev personally signed an order to have Nureyev killed. [Pluto rising can indicate a death sentence].
Nureyev was born on a Trans-Siberian train near Irkutsk, Siberia, Soviet Union, while his mother Feride was travelling to Vladivostok, where his father Hamit, a Red Army political commissar, was stationed. [Jupiter in Aquarius on the 8th house cusp in quincunx with the Ascendant and leading a locomotive pattern suggests rocky if not outright dangerous beginnings, and indeed Nureyev was "shaken out of the womb" on a trans-Siberian train near Irkutsk.].
