When planets Retrograde, we re-view, re-think and re-flect.
How interesting that A’s Manager Ken Macha was Re-hired Oct. 13, 2005. The New Moon eclipse of Oct. 3, 2005, aspected his sun in Libra, (born Sept. 29, 1950, Wilkinsburg, PA) and negotitations broke down shortly thereafter, on Oct. 5, as fiery Aries (March 29) GM Bily Beane was not in the spirit of compromise, as the eclipse aspected his chart by opposition.
They re-visited and re-thought, and now Macha is back at the helm.
Mars also rules surgery and its not recommeneded to have elective surgery when Mars is retrograde. Mars started retrograde motion Oct 2, 2005 and will be retorgrade till Dec 10, 2005, leaving its shadow point Feb 3, 2006.
Pitchers having already had surgery during this inauspicious cycle include A’s Rich Harden and Mets Braden Looper.
Approximately when pitchers report for spring training in mid- Febuary……….lets hope things to not have to be "Re-done".
As above, so below.
With two eclipses this month of October 2005 (Oct. 3 and Oct. 17) and Mars, the planet of energy, assertion and aggression, retrograde, expect the unexpected during October.
Playoff baseball and the World Series should continue to be full of controversy.
With Mars, the red planet in reverse, all things related to Mars-personal power, energy and drive, athletic competition, emotions, volatility, anger, accute conditions, leadership traits, and egocentric views are highlighted. When planets retrograde (think mercury retro for communication confusions) there are more likely to be misunderstandings and internalized expressions of that planetary energy.
Gear up for a powerful, transformational month with these planetary alignments.
As above, so below.
We have been waiting for this since the Age of Aquarius!
Jupiter is aligning with Mars, more specifically for baseball fans, Jupiter, the planet of good fortune, is aligning with Yankees pitcher Randy Johnson’s Mars, planet of energy, assertion and aggression. Timing is everything, as he should be strong for the playoff push.
This happens once every 12 years, ushering in a whole new cycle of personal and professional growth. Johnson’s astrology forecast is powerful through the month of October 2005. This is a cycle of optimism, great physical vitality and endurance. Self-confidence and will power is high, he’s more assertive than usual.
Game 3 is October 7, 2005 at 5:00 pm PT
BTW, Full Moon Lunar Eclipse aligns with his Mars on Oct. 17, 2005.
Looks like some possible challenges for Hudson for the NLDS playoffs, as Saturn (planet of limitation) makes a challenging aspect to his Mars (planet of energy, assertion and aggression)
Usually a cycle of low physical energy and frustration, as actions meet with resistance. Saturn rules the skeletal structure, so there may be some challenges there as well.
