Tom Brady – Born to be a quarterback

Tom Brady

If you could ever want to find an Astrological chart that screams quarterback, then Tom Brady has it all. Later today in Minnesota, Tom Brady goes to try and win an unprecedented 6th Superbowl ring. It will be his 8th appearance in the NFL's show piece game, four times before he has been the game's most valuable player. He is without doubt the best there has ever been, and who would bet against him winning another championship on Super Sunday? I wouldn't.

Sergio Garcia finally wins The Masters


Sergio trophy 2

Massive huge congratulations to Sergio Garcia, the Spanish golfer who until last night was forever the bridesmaid and never the bride. Seventy four major championships he had played and never once a winner until with a throat curdling scream of utter delight he won the one they all want to win, the Masters at Augusta.

Muhammad Ali – A look back at the horoscope of the greatest heavyweight boxer of all time.


Last night the news came in that one of the most iconic sports personalities ever had passed away. Muhammad Ali had the most amazing life, from growing up from poor roots in Kentucky, to conquering the world in the boxing ring with skill and grace, in standing up for his chosen religion & dealing with a degenerative and incapacitating illness. Muhammad Ali remains one of the most awe inspiring people in sport and a name that will live on through the ages. Looking at his astrology chart, I want to try and dig a little deeper to try to explain why he was “simply the greatest”.

Tennis US Open Men's Final 2014 - Who is gonna win, Marin Cilic or Kei Nishikori?


Cilic 1

I has a look at Kei Nishikori yesterday and today I look at the potential fortunes of Marin Cilic, the conqueror or Roger Federer in the 2nd semi final. He is a Libran, born 28 Sept 1988 in Medjugorie, Bosnia (no birth time). Anyone born in that part of the world had a tough upbringing in the 90's with war raging all around in the 90's and his chart is quite a challenging one. Despite all this, he has the battled through to make it to the pinnacle of the Men’s tennis circuit, and for that he deserves great credit.

Kei Nishikori - Taking the tennis world by storm


What a result. The Japanese tennis player Kei Nishikori this afternoon amazingly beat world number 1 Novak Djokovic in four incredible sets at the US Open to become Japan's first ever men's grand slam finalist. Kei has been steadily improving but this is certainly his breakthrough moment and it will delight a nation that has never had a male tennis player of any note.

Mark Cavendish crashes out of "Le Tour"


The "Manx Missile" Mark Cavendish has been ruled out of the rest of the "Tour De France" after severely dislocating his shoulder in a high speed crash in the sprint for the line in stage one of the three week race. This is very disappointing for British cycling fans in Yorkshire where the race started who were hoping to see Mark win and thus take the lead and pick up the famed yellow jersey for the first time. Unfortunately he now has to retire from the race before it's even begun.

World Cup Astrology - Luis Suarez - A time bomb waiting to go off...

luis suarez

Yesterday saw an appalling incident as brilliant but unpredictable Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez bit one of his Italian opponents. He has form doing this kind of behaviour as he has twice before been banned from football for biting, first when he played for Dutch club Ajax and more recently for his current employers Liverpool FC.

Michael Schumacher critical after skiing accident.


Yesterday, the former multi times world Formula 1 racing champion suffered a very serious accident while skiing at the French Alpine resort of Meribel. It appears that he fell and hit his head on a rock, suffering head injuries and was transported by helicopter to Grenoble where he went immediate surgery to relieve pressure and swelling on his brain. He remains in a critical situation at the time of writing in an intensive care ward, the doctors monitoring his situation “hour by hour”.

Floyd Mayweather Jnr – A man of grace and brutality.


In the world of boxing at this moment in time, the pound of pound best fighter on the planet just has to be Floyd Mayweather Jnr. He is unbeaten, and at 36 is still almost impossible to hit. This weekend in Las Vegas he stands to earn an incredible $41.5 million dollars for his fight against Saul Alvarez. If it goes the full 12 rounds he will still be earning more than $1 million a minute. Floyd is an incredible character with some incredible habits but he knows the bottom line is winning and so despite some strange and outlandish behaviour, come fight night, the ultimate professional will step into the ring.

Andy Murray wins the Wimbledon single’s title.


Very well done to Andy Murray (click to see his natal chart) who became the first British winner of Wimbledon, wiping out 77 years of impatient waiting for another champion from Britain; the last British man to win the men’s title was Fred Perry who won in 1936. Andy beat Novak Djokovic in straight sets yesterday afternoon on a sun drenched and very warm centre court in South West London. I suspected he would finally win the “holy grail” this year and I went so far as to say so on the back of my post about him last year. So what aspects were active for him to be successful this time around?

Oscar Pistorius – Arrested for shooting his girlfriend and charged with murder.

Oscar Pistorius

This morning in a suburb of Johannesburg, Oscar Pistorius, known in sport as the “Bladerunner” because of his iconic prosthetic metal running blades allegedly shot his model girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp. As I understand it, the shooting could have been a tragic accident with Oscar possibly mistaking her for an intruder entering his home in the middle of the night, although the South African police admitted that there had been some “violent domestic incidents” at his home before. The astrology that I am about to explain suggests there may be more to this incident than meets the eye. South Africans do have a rather paranoid attitude when it comes to protecting their properties, and it may be that worry and insecurity played a part in this dreadful incident too. Oscar is currently being held on murder charges by South African police and will attend a court hearing at 14.00 hrs today.

David Beckham – One last move in a glittering soccer career

david beckham

Here around Europe it is football transfer deadline day, the last chance clubs have of signing up new talent for their clubs before the end of the season. David Beckham has signed on the dotted line for French super club Paris St Germain, so he will be off with his kids and Victoria to Paris for a final swansong. Think about it, he hasn’t done bad for an East London lad, has he? From Manchester United, probably the most famous club in the world to Real Madrid, to Milan to play for AC, Los Angeles and the Galaxy, playing and being captain for England of course and now to Paris to finish off an incredible career. Add in being an ambassador for the London Olympics, fashion icon, model, and through it all he has kept his image clean cut and I have never heard him say a bad word about anyone. How does he do it and what is he like? Lets have a quick look at his horoscope.

Tony Greig - Former England cricket captain and TV commentator dies from heart attack.


Tony Greig, the very opinionated former England cricket captain and TV commentator for Channel 9 sports in Australia passed away suddenly from a heart attack ,aged 66. Tony was born in South Africa to Scottish parents and so this qualified him to play cricket for England. He was a huge man standing at 6ft 6 inches tall, an all rounder and he played cricket with his heart on his sleeve. I will never forget a TV interview when as captain before a series against the West Indies and their ferocious famed fast bowling attack in the late 70’s, he claimed that England would make the West Indies players “grovel”. Needless to say, the West Indies never forgot those insulting words and they trounced the English team in the following test matches. His commentating style was direct yet so knowledgeable and in the world of cricket he will be greatly missed.

Ellie Simmonds – The astrology of the golden girl of Paralympics London 2012

Ellie Simmonds

I don’t whether the same joie de vivre is being felt around the rest of the world in reaction to the Paralympic Games, but here in the UK, the feeling I get is just as exciting and maybe more so at the incredible athletic achievements which all these wonderful athletes attain. Talking in British terms, by far the most high profile of these competitors at the Games is the swimmer, Ellie Simmonds. Tonight she is going for a 3rd gold medal at these wonderful games, and when I looked at her amazing chart I just had to do a post on her.

England cricket captain Andrew Strauss retires.

Andrew Strauss

Andrew Strauss is retiring from all forms of cricket relinquishing his position as England cricket captain. His reign has been hugely successful with two back to back wins in the Ashes series over Australia and his captaincy saw England rise to the number one team in the world. Lately however, England has been on a losing streak and internal battles with England’s star batsman Kevin Pietersen seem to have created serious discontent in the England camp.

Lance Armstrong – Are his past actions catching up with him?

Lance Armstrong

Lance Armstrong is back in the news as he surprisingly dropped his opposition to drug charges aimed at him through the US anti doping agency, the USADA. I say surprisingly, but it was not a surprise to me. If the charges are upheld, he may be banned from the sport of cycling and his 7 Tour de France titles may be stripped away from him, however this decision by Armstrong is a “clever” move as he will no longer be publically questioned over his actions, yet  his continued protestations of innocence will throw doubt over any ban imposed. Seven years after his last victory, a rich man who is thankful for even being alive after suffering testicular cancer, Lance I think is prepared to leave the memories of those 7 yellow jersey wins in the world’s toughest race as a testament to his sporting greatness.

Bradley Wiggins – An Englishman winning the admiration of the French public.


I love the Tour de France. Three weeks of hell on a bicycle as around 200 supreme athletes race up impossibly steep roads, bash their bodies over cobbles and complete a lung busting circle around France of around 3000 km. These guys are brave, risking their lives as they hurtle down mountains, and totally mad for putting themselves through the pain barrier, all to achieve eventual glory on the grand boulevards of Paris. At the moment, the leader of the race and likely winner is an Englishman, Bradley Wiggins. For a Frenchman, the idea of an “Anglais” in the yellow jersey and winning their race for the first time must be a galling experience (sorry for the pun), however Bradley has, after a lot of scepticism, started to win over the doubters.

Usain Bolt – Coming to London under a cloud of uncertainty.


With the Olympic Games very much in our thoughts here in the UK, I thought it time to have a look at the biggest star due to fly to London to compete, the phenomenal sprinter and current 100m champion Usain Bolt. It is interesting that recently he has not been his normal unbeatable self, and lost to his compatriot Yohan Blake twice recently. Looking at his stars, one can see why he has not been on form and he arrives in London under a cloud of uncertainty.

Roger Federer – The “Fed Express” keeps on delivering.

roger federer

Roger Federer this year is competing in his 14th Wimbledon championship and as I write has got through to the second week yet again despite a close call against Julien Benneteau who pushed him to 5 sets in his 3rd round match. Roger is bidding to win a 7th Wimbledon crown, a record that would probably remain unsurpassed for many a years to come. Maybe his best days are now behind him as younger players such as Novak Djokovic can outlast him in a fitness sense, however if there is probably still no-one out there who entertains and plays the game with such grace and panache.
