We will study some of the Karmic motivations that impel him to do what he has done thus far and we can also guess at the relevance of these findings qua the fact that he has finally sought and been granted asylum by Russia.
Let us see some of the dominant features of his Vedic horoscope, the Lagna Chakra and the divisional charts/ Varga Chakra. As explained later in this article the various esoteric techniques of Vedic astrology afford direct insight into the multifarious matters indicated by the various divisions of the horoscope.
The Rāśi/ Rashi Chakra is extracted below for reference-
We can see immediately that Mercury/ Budha is in the Lagna and we are talking about a Systems Administrator here which is squarely in the domain of Mercury. Computers and communications from computers, data and files are all areas governed by this planet. Taurus/ Vṛṣabha/ Vrishabha Lagna rises and Mercury rules the 2nd House of wealth and community as well as the 5th of followers and the populace. Both the interests of the American people and his interest in their well-being have been stated to be motivation behind what he did.
What is most interesting is the Lagneśa/ Lagnesha/ lord of the Ascendant. This is Venus/ Śukra and is placed in the 3rd House of hobbies, communications, internet, World Wide Web, writing and the like. The sign here is Cancer/ Karkaṭa/ Karkata showing the motherland and Venus here shows a patriot and nationalist. But this is not where the story finishes.
Parivartana Yoga/ exchange is the strongest combinations between two planets. The Lagneśa/ Lagnesha is in Parivartana Yoga (read understanding and reversal of roles) with the enemy since the 3rd and 6th Houses are in exchange. The native himself works as the enemy since the 6th House is the place for enemies. Communications with the enemy by the self is what emerges and hence the allegations of compromising the American security and the working of the intelligence agencies.
In addition both the Lagneśa/ Lagnesha and the 3rd Lord Moon are cursed by association with malefics leading to Graha Śrāpas/ Shrapas/ Planetary Curses. Both Venus and Moon are assailed by the influences of Saturn and Rāhu/ Rahu and they are the lords of the 10th House. His future might be in jeopardy.
Rāhu/ Rahu is infact the significator of espionage and his employment with the CIA and the NSA is explained by the lordship of the 10th House by Rāhu. Rāhu/ Rahu is the Ātmakāraka (Atmakaraka) and this work is the mandate of the soul and is intended to bring him suffering. Rahu is joined the Sun and Mars and that is a conspicuous combination in the 2nd House.
The placement of Jupiter in the 7th House in the secretive sign of Scorpio, dispositing exalted Ketu in the 8th House (sending out sensitive intelligence) and its aspect on the Lagna also confirms the role of intelligence and espionage in his life.
The current events are almost entirely the results of Saturn and Rahu which can be seen from the Dashas operating. These are given below-

Nobody is really focussing on his beliefs or religious moorings and work profile but the entire focus is on his mind and 'what made him do it' and 'also what we should think about it'. These are the effects of Moon which is conjoined Saturn in the 6th House in Libra.
Readers will also appreciate that his natal Moon and the lord of the Mahādaśā/Mahadasha in the Vimśottarī Daśā/ Vimshottari Dasha scheme Saturn are being transited by both Saturn and Rahu and therefore he is in the throes of what we might call the white hot phase of the Sade-Sāti/ Sati.
From some other charts we can see that he has been born to repay this Karma to his people and community and it is here that we see that he is truly motivated to brings this into the open for his nation, community and people. We also see that he has been compelled by his Karma to do this and further that somewhere along the way a falling in ideals is possible. His birth has occurred for this purpose. But this is beyond the scope of this paper.
The work is judged from the Daśāmśa/ Dashamsha Chakra/ D-10 chart and this is given below-
When we look at horoscopes we evaluate them in great depth using principles which are not amenable to popular publication. We depth of examination accrues not only from examination of the Rāśi Cakra/ Rashi Chakra from the Lagna/ rising sign but also the sign occupied by the natal Moon in the radix which is called the Jaṅma Rāśi/ Janma Rashi, bit also from the Varga Chakras/divisional charts. These are focussed and specified universes in themselves each covering the minutiae of specific areas of life.
For instance the Navāmśa/ Navamsha will show the specifics related to the spouse and one's own inner personality traits, as too the things that happen due to divine intervention and certain controlling planets. The Daśāmśa/ Dashamsha Chakra/ D-10 will show the details relating to work, the Saptamsha of life as it obtains in connexion with children, the Chaturthāmśa/ Chaturthamsha with regard to the properties, the Dwādaśāmśa with regard to the parents and elders etc.
