Mike Trout Struts His Stuff

Mike Trout, the center fielder for the Los Angeles Angels, had a great day in the ball park on Tuesday.

The Angels were facing off against the Dodgers in Dodger Stadium.

When Mike Trout came to bat, he did what he is becoming increasingly famous for. He hit a home run.

It was the eleventh homer he had blasted in the last 13 games he’s played in. I guess you could say he’s on a roll.

I could say more about that – but Yogi Berra said it better.

But this home run was a little special.

When Mike Trout connected with the ball, he hammered it 454 feet into the loge level above left field in Dodger Stadium.

That’s the kind of shot that happens only about twice a year in that ball park. It was quite a feat.

Mike Trout Also Has An Amazing Arm

But the big game for Mike Trout didn’t stop there.

After fielding a ball deep in center field, he let loose a perfect 98.6 mph throw with laser accuracy to home plate.

That missile traveled 261 feet to bring an abrupt end to Max Muncy’s trip around the bases.

Muncy was charging in from third base when Trout’s stupendous throw cut him off at the plate.

More Than Just Muscle

What’s interesting about Trout is not just his physical prowess.

That’s substantial, to be sure.

His horoscope shows that he’s an individual capable of high-powered mental focus.

That clearly pays off in his athlete performance. When the mind and the body come together, amazing things can happen.

His mental power also serves him well in his ability to make connections and get good deals.

Like the contract he signed a couple of months ago for $432 million.

It was the largest contract ever signed in the history of sports (so far at least).

Now that’s really knowing how to find the money in your horoscope!

Here’s a quick video that reviews some of the horoscope highlights I’m talking about. If you’re a sports fan, pay attention!

Chicago Cubs Winning Astrology

I have to admit that I’m not particularly obsessed with the Chicago Cubs.

The fact is, I’m not a huge baseball fan, but I always enjoy watching a game wherever I have an opportunity.

Typically I get involved late in the season, and by the time the playoff games are underway and we’re leading up to the World Series, I’m thoroughly engaged.

So Patty and I took time out last night to watch the Chicago Cubs clinch the National League pennant.

They beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-0 in a game that featured a lot more drama than the lop-sided final score might suggest. (“The Dodgers are from Los Angeles?” Patty asked. “Where did they used to be before that?”)

And when the game was over, I of course wanted to take a look at the planetary alignments. Here’s what I found:

As the game came to a conclusion, Neptune was prominent near the Midheaven. The Sun had just moved into Scorpio during the course of the game, and was thus disposited by Mars and Pluto, the co-rulers of Scorpio, which were in a conjunction in the seventh house of open adversaries. It’s also worth noting the transneptunian factor Hades conjoining the Ascendant and square Jupiter, highlighting the 6 – 9 degree area of the cardinal signs.

History-Making Sports

It was a pretty dramatic lineup to say the least, and very fitting for such an historic occasion. After all, the win by the Chicago Cubs marked the first time in 71 years that the team had captured a National League title to get a trip to the World Series.

The Chicago Cubs made quite a splash back in 1945, the last time the team had won the pennant. Here’s the spread from the Chicago Tribune on September 30, 1945, the day after the Chicago Cubs had won the title by beating the Pittsburgh Pirates 5-4 in the first game of a double header in Pittsburgh:

The Chicago Cubs got a big headline with their win at the end of September 1945.

 

It was quite a celebration in 1945. At that time it had been 7 years since the Chicago Cubs had taken the league title, and that 7 years had seemed like a long dry spell.

Nobody imagined then that the next drought for the Chicago Cubs would last ten times as long!

It’s interesting to note that the winning game for the Chicago Cubs on September 29, 1945 took 2 hours and 36 minutes to play. That was exactly the same duration as the winning game on October 22, 2016, which also took 2 hours and 36 minutes to play.

But a look at the horoscope for the end of the game in 1945 is even more intriguing:

The overall distribution of the planets in this chart is strikingly different than the winning chart in 2016. But nevertheless there are some noteworthy parallels.

Neptune had a position of prominence in the chart, since it was conjunct the Sun at the time. The Midheaven was in Scorpio, with its planetary ruler Pluto in the seventh house of open competitors. And thanks to an impressive stellium in Libra, this chart also has a strong emphasis on the 6 – 9 degree area in the cardinal signs of the zodiac.

On To The World Series

Without or without these astrological perspectives, Chicago Cubs fans clearly have a lot to celebrate.

But whether that celebration can extend into the upcoming World Series remains to be seen. After all, after the the Chicago Cubs won the pennant in 1945 they went down to defeat in that year’s World Series against Detroit.

But with any luck this year’s World Series should at least give us some interesting horoscopes to look at!
