Everybody's horoscope is instructive and
edifying, and you can find something in everyone's horoscope that will
broaden your astrological knowledge. However, the most edifying
horoscopes belong to great men, to those who used the planet energy in
their horoscope by reaching a peak, and in that way achieved certain
success for which they stood out from the crowd (multitude) and left a
trace in the endless (?) history of mankind.
One of such horoscopes belongs to a great
legend of athletics, Carl Lewis
(1 July 1961, 7:47, CST+6, 86W48,
By interpreting his horoscope we shall see
why he was a sportsman, why he was the best sprinter, and why he was
also the long jump jumper, and why he had a very bad start for a
sprinter in a 100-meter race (he was usually the last of all the runners
starting from the start line), but that he speeded up tremendously at
halfway of the running track and in that way won many races.
A sport is symbolized in astrology by the
ardent signs and analogous houses: Aries (the first house), Leo (the
fifth house) and Sagittarius (the ninth house). Carl Lewis was born in
Cancer sign with Leo Ascendant. His Ascendant occurs at 17°. of Leo,
being analogous to Leo sign (12+5), so that Carl Lewis has a strong
effect of Leo sign in his character – sport, to be the best. Three
planets (Uranus, Mars and Pluto) and the North Node in the first house
(analogous to Aries) tell about his fighting spirit; the conjunction of
Mars and Pluto in the first house (physical body) tell us about the
stamina, sturdiness and strength of his body. All this squares an
extremely strong Mars, in its natural 1st house, to 1°. of Virgo (the
first degree has all the characteristics of the first Aries sign). In
addition to all that, Mars (to be diligent) in Virgo (to be industrious,
fulfill one's obligations) tells us that he will fulfill his obligations
diligently at very tiring training sessions.
Furthermore, the fifth house (sport) begins
in Sagittarius (sport, records), and Jupiter, the ruler of that house,
occurs at 5°. (the degree of Leo – sport) of Aquarius in the 6th house
(job), and his job (the 6th house) was sport (Jupiter at 5°, the ruler
of the 5th house – sport). Also, the Sun, the ruler of his Ascendant
(the things we do first, the things we firstly decide for), occurs at
9°. of Cancer, and that degree is analogous to the 9th Sagittarius sign
– sport, records.
Also, the Moon, the ruler of his Sun,
occurs at 21°. of Aquarius, and that degree is also analogous to
Sagittarius sign – sport.
Therefore, we have many astrological elements indicating that Carl Lewis
was a sportsman.
Before we have a look why he was a
top-class sprinter, let's see why he was a long jump jumper too.
The long jump, as the branch of athletics, is certainly ruled by
Sagittarius sign and the ruler Jupiter, for, what would designate longer
and farther in astrology than Sagittarius sign and Jupiter. The Sun, the
ruler of the Ascendant, occurs at 9°., which is analogous to the 9th
Sagittarius sign; the Moon, the ruler of the Sun, occurs at 21°. which
is also analogous to Sagittarius sign; his 5th house (sport) begins in
Sagittarius, therefore, all this indicates that Carl Lewis was a long
jump jumper as well. And why was he a sprinter too (100-meter and
200-meter, 400-meter relay)? A high speed is symbolized in astrology by
Aquarius and the ruler Uranus.
In the horoscope of Carl Lewis, the Moon,
the ruler of the Sun, occurs in Aquarius; the ruler of the 5th house
(sport), Jupiter, also occurs in Aquarius, and what is the most
important, Uranus, the ruler of Aquarius, occurs at the very Ascendant!
Therefore, we have several astrological indicators once again,
indicating that Carl Lewis was a sprinter too.
Why did he have a very bad start? He was
usually the last starting from the start line on the running track. The
Ascendant (the first step, in his case, the start of the race) tells us
about that, as well as the ruler of the Ascendant.
The Sun, the ruler of his Ascendant (start)
occurs in Cancer, which, together with Capricorn, represent the slowest
signs of the Zodiac, therefore, his start from the line was very slow,
what is a great shortcoming for a top-class sprinter.
THE EFFECT OF THE 23rd DEGREE
However, somewhere at 40 meters of the
track he began speeding up as a rocket. Why? You are going to say:
»Well, he has Uranus (rocket, speed) at the Ascendant«. You will be
certainly right, but not completely. Let's see his Uranus. It occurred
in Leo, therefore, in the sign of its fall, what would mean that Carl
Lewis wasn't so fast. However, (my theory on the degrees becomes
completely evident here); his Uranus occurred at 23°., which, together
with 11°. of each sign has all the characteristics of the fastest sign,
Aquarius. Consequently, besides having a »weak« Uranus in Leo, 23°.
(Aquarius) enabled him to run, in the second part of the 100-meter race,
as the real Uranus (rocket) and win the races. In addition to all that,
the North Node (gains, victories) is in conjunction with the powerful
Regulus (the winner, to be the best)!
Well, let someone say that astrology isn't an exact science ....
THE INFLUENCE OF AQUARIUS DEGREES
Our Nikola Tesla
(10 July 1856, 00:56:47 AM, CET-1, 15E17,
and the American Thomas Edison (11 February 1847, 23:33,
LMT+00, 82W37, 41N18) are the two remarkable scientists –
inventors, who made an outstanding contribution to the field
of electric power and electrical
Naturally, in the horoscope of both of
them there is a powerful Uranus (electricity, ingeniousness,
inventions). Tesla’s Uranus is placed in Taurus at the 23rd degree, i.e.
the degree conveying all the symbolic of Aquarius (electricity,
inventions), at the very Ascendant. Edison has Uranus at Aquarius degree
– at the 11th degree of Aries.
For those who have noticed that Tesla’s
birth chart shown in this book does not coincide with the others found
in numerous books or on the Internet astro sites, I will explain why my
rectification of his birth chart with the Ascendant at the 24th degree
of Taurus is correct. Mentioning Nikola Tesla’s name always brings to
mind his photography in an iron cage with him sitting peacefully reading
a book while numerous lightings flash around him. His image is
represented by his Ascendant which is at the 24th degree of Taurus with
the symbolic of Pisces (a prison, a cage). Thus, he was sitting in a
cage; Uranus (thunder, lightning) is at the very Ascendant and,
therefore, lightning could be seen; Venus, the ruler of the Ascendant,
is in the 3rd house - he was reading (the 3rd house) a book (the 3rd
house)… The author of this book has Mercury, the ruler of the Ascendant,
in Aquarius (astrology, astrologer) at the 23rd degree (Aquarius degree
