Anyone who saw the 1997 US masters golf tournament at Augusta couldn't fail to be touched by the sheer
talent, the cool competitiveness and sporting attitude of Tiger Woods. To have broken so many records
at the age of 21 will take some living down. It's hard to see where he can go from here.
Sporting Angels or Devils
From the astrological point of view, Pluto in Sagittarius has revolutionised many sports: [soccer, baseball,
rugby, horse-racing...]. The lives of sports men (in particular) has gained powerful media coverage:
the OJ Simpson embroglio, Micheal Jordan (who flies like an angel (or eagle?) in Space Jam)
& Michael Johnson (200 metres world record),
English soccer bribery scandals, Will Carling and
the Princess of Wales.... for better and for worse. Now the supposedly sedate, suburban, white, middle-class
world of golf* is being turned upside down by a young man of mixed Afro-American, native American
and Thai origins. [Self styled as a Cablinasian and why not?]
Some astrologers will argue that this change is accounted for by the 'social levelling factor'
created by Uranus in Aquarius. And this might be true, but the arena of sports is more of a
Sagittarian place than an Aquarian one. Changes in our consciousness are occurring through behaviour
in sport. Sports people have become the key players in influencing how we play the game of life
and even down to how we dress.
Back to Tiger... He is part of this evolutionary change and this is supported by the position of
his Moon and Neptune in Sagittarius. As his Neptune is being activated by sign, he is starting to
capture the world's imagination. But like anyone with a bit of Sag. he has his message to pass on to us.
