This blog is about doping, Armstrong and the Tour de France. It is not the first time that I write about this subject (see the link below). There is a reason to write about this again. It is because of Lance Armstrong and because of Uranus-Pluto. Time for a big change of the Tour?I am supposed to be good at riding the bike, because of the fact that I was born in a country full of bikes. But I am not. I don't use my bike, unless it is beautiful weather without a breeze and in company of my husband who has to help me get over a dike (and even then I often simply have to step off and walk). I also don't like watching the Tour. In my eyes it is a superhuman effort and it is impossible to complete the Tour without using doping. It is a crazy challenge. But, some people think that it can be done with training, muscle power and the will to win. So be it. Maybe it can. One of the people who won, was Lance Armstrong.
CHART LANCE ARMSTRONG
Were we surprised that an average biker came back after cancer treatment and became the best of them all? The investigators were surprised and wanted to know more. The public considered him to be a hero and a living miracle. (We want to believe that miracles exist. We can, can't we?) That miracle and the idol are in the chart. It is in Jupiter conjunct Neptune, quintile Mars (trine Uranus).
Above is the chart of the day of his birth (time unknown) with today's transits and progressions.
Those are the tightest aspects of this chart. Visualize it!
Jupiter conjunct Neptune
Mars trine Uranus
The devoted public (Jupiter-Neptune) created (quintile) by a fast man (Mars-Uranus).
People enjoyed watching him win. But now...
HARD TIMES, TIME FOR HARD (SIDES OF) ASPECTS
In hard times the hard aspects in the chart sound louder. Now we see Mercury square Saturn (it takes time to give an answer...). And the bad side of Jupiter-Neptune becomes clear: you can cheat better with Jupiter-Neptune. It is pay back time (transit Pluto inconjunct Saturn) now that newspapers want the millions back that they payed him when they 'falsely' accused him. There is a lot of news, tension and controversy (transit Uranus inconjunct progressed Sun). And it is not the end, yet. Progressed Sun is getting closer to a quincunx with Saturn. That is one of the hardest aspects to deal with! It is about losing status and condition. It is about falling hard (a real fall or a fall from a pedestal). It is also about having to deal with the facts of life.
The natal chart with Sun conjunct, and Mars sesqui square Pluto tells us about a strong drive to win. And yes, that is why...When Lance Armstrong came back after cancer treatment, transit Jupiter was inconjunct his progressed Sun and that is what I call 'the negative positive' aspect. Jupiter is always there in the stories about doping and it might not be coincidence that Jupiter is the symbol of coaches and doctors, too. They 'helped' the men win and they never joined forces to make an end to the crazy demands. But it might be time for a change right now!
Chart TOUR DE FRANCE
Here is the chart of the very first Tour de France. I took 12:40 for starting time, just like in one of the later Tours de France. And see: the Uranus-Pluto square hits the Sun of the first Tour de France. This sun is in the 9th degree of Cancer. Both Uranus and Pluto (the duo of dramatic change) are in hard aspect with that degree. Early December will be the final opposition of transit Pluto and end of March 2013 you see transit Uranus square that degree. It is time for a revolutionary change! Starting with the "parcours"? Above is the picture (thanks Wikipedia!) of how they climb up Alpe d'Huez.
Watch Mars quintie Uranus in the Tour's chart! Mars-Uranus really belongs to the Tour.
