I have to do a quick sports post and roll 10/28 into it as well. I usually have a good nose for really great sports moments. It must be Jupiter in Sag in my first, trining Uranus in Leo in my 9th. I can usually spot the right time to go out and experience a game, usually at a bar or pub and catch the vibe. Tonight was the latest moment like that.
I could hear the world series game in the background from my radio downstairs while I worked. I had a sense it was going to be a good one, so I hoofed it over to the Up and Under, the local (and probably only one for miles around) rugby pub. There, I witnessed the epic game six between the Cardinals and the Rangers. The Rangers were leading the series three games to two. They needed one win to take the World Series crown back to Arlington. The Cards were playing at home. The lead changed eight times and went eleven innings. It wasn’t a perfect game, but like two heavyweights, slugging it out deep into the night, just when each team delivered what looked like a crushing blow, the other team would rally and tie or take the lead. It was relentless and it would have been over and done if it wasn’t for St. Louis native, David Freese. Freese just became thee poster boy for astrology in sports.
First of all, hats off to a his last name; “Freese.” Tonight the kid had ice water in his veins. With two outs in the bottom of the ninth, St. Louis down by two runs, their season hanging by a thread, with a 3-2 count, Freese cracked a stone-cold-rope to right field, over the head on awkwardly retreating Nelson Cruz, driving in Albert Pujols and Lance Berkman to tie the game with a triple.
Two innings later, thanks to Bergman’s own heroics in the bottom of the tenth to tie the game, yet again, Freese stepped in against pitcher, Mike Lowe. Lowe was one of the Rangers last available relievers. Freese wasted no time and drove another 3-2 pitch just slightly down in the strike zone into the deepest part of the park. Game over. Local kid lives out his wildest dream.
Freese was born on 4/28/83, which of course makes him a Taurus. His Sun at 7 degrees is conjunct transiting Jupiter at 5 degrees. Jupiter/Sun is a spectacular conjunction to have on the game’s biggest stage. But it doesn’t end there. Nope. Freese has a Scorpio Moon, likely around 20 degrees, which would have made his natal Moon conjunct transiting Moon, Mercury and Venus, all in Scorpio. These late degrees were not opposing his natal Sun, however they did oppose his natal Mars and Mercury, also in Taurus. Freese is blessed with a Sun/Mars Taurus conjunction which endows him with some serious kinetic powers and a great deal of strength. That drive to center is not hit by someone with moderate power. The Scorpio conjunctions with his Moon seems to have offset any of the oppositions. He also has Jupiter in Sag conjunct Uranus in Sag with a one degree orb. That’s all about reflexes, timing and pure good fortune in the moment. Transiting Uranus in Aries was trining both Jupiter and Uranus. Whoa! Electric! Dude is on fire. He was already named M.V.P. of the NLCS and if the Cards can close it out tomorrow night, there’s a good chance he’ll be the World Series M.V.P. as well. Heady times for someone who nearly walked away from baseball just two years ago.
10/28/11 is the end of the Mayan calendar in the long coun for this Tzolkin. It is 13 Ahau; “The Cosmic Christ.” The keynote for 13 Ahau is, “I endure in order to enlighten.” This is an auspicious day. Well over a year ago, I interviewed Carl Johan Calleman and we talked about this very day. He believes that this is the true end of the Mayan calendar, since on 12/21/12, the calendar does not end in 13 Ahau, but rather 4 Ahau. 13 is a much more organic end and the controversial timekeeper claims to have had this confirmed by Mayan elders in the Yucatan. What will happen? Will we all ascend together, just as in a dream I once had? Will we all have our life review simultaneously and learn who, where and how we’ve hurt others, feel their pain and disappointment, be forgiven and be reborn? Will we wake up feeling more like our true selves than ever before? We will all have the same dream with the same winning lottery numbers for every lotto on Earth and magically redistribute the wealth over night? I don’t know, but pay attention or you might miss some pertinent detail to the unfoldment of the great mystery before your very eyes.
