To the right is a chart for the start of the game. You can click on it for a larger image.
The game opens with Leo on the horizon making this a Sun ruled event. Mars in the heart of the Sun trine Saturn is a hot but slow burn. These are the guys who have gone the distance. Expect aggressive but paced play.
Commenting on a previous article, our friend nathan elderkin suggested when looking at a game chart, use the ascendant to represent the home team and the descendant for the visitor. I like this method, but will have to wait until future games to use it, because in the Super Bowl, both teams are visitors.
Talking to my dad on the phone, he suggested I look at it this way; The Packers are named for the Indian Packing Company which processed canned meat. Meat is associated with Taurus, that makes them Venus ruled. The Steelers are metal workers making them Mars ruled.
Under my Dad’s schema the Packers are under intense pressure. Venus is conjunct Pluto with hard aspects to Uranus,The Moon and Jupiter straddling the Aries point. I’ve heard there’s no such thing as a bad aspect to Jupiter But if you’ve ever seen a hard situation go from bad to super-ginormous-gargantuan-cataclysm then you understand the exaggerating power of Jupiter.
The Steelers are represented by that Mars cazimi which is either a magnificent fire or a terrible burn out depending on who you ask. I mentioned in my last article that Ben Roethlisberger is headed into his Saturn Return. His Mars is also conjunct Saturn reiterating the days theme. This just may be his big day in the Sun (or his date with karma.)
Who do you think will take home the coveted Lambardi trophy this year? The Packers or the Steelers?
