I am not a sports guy – in fact, I do not get most of them! I find that I get bored relatively easy (my mind starts doing astrology charts or pondering metaphysics) and I tend to lose focus on the game. However, every four years the Olympics draw me in. I get excited and begin to find out which games are playing on what days and who the favorites are to win. It’s seriously an insane sight to behold and so unlike my natural nature.
On Saturday, the Sun will conjoin with Mercury Rx in the sign of Leo. Ordinarily, I would associated sporting events with the sign of Aries and its ruler Mars, but the Olympic coveted prize is a gold (Leo) medal and in many cases the reward is not millions of dollars (although some Athletes especially in America do get endorsement deals), yet the simply the achievement of competing for your country (loyalty and patriotism are two other Leonine words) and achieving an honor that is only achieved by the noble few.
While the Sun and Mercury are conjoined it is a great time for us to take initiative (just don’t start anything new until after Mercury goes direct), exchange ideas with others, self-examination, and a great time to plan the future. In many ways, the Sun in our horoscope reflects our destiny and our ability to go out into the world and create a separate and special individual who is appreciated and value for who they are and when you add this to Mercury’s need for knowledge, information, and our ability to understand life you can easily use this time to map out your future. What are your goals? What are your dreams? What are your ambitions?
As we move into the first few days of the Olympics, think about the amount of time that these athletes have trained; the vision they must have had to make the sacrifices necessary to achieve their goals and their ability to follow through to get the desired results. In many ways, we should all approach our lives as Olympic athletes and go for our personal gold. We can achieve anything; we just have to reach for the stars (and maybe listen to them) that guide us.
