Urban Meyer, new Ohio State University football coach, changes his mind a lot. Get used to it.
Meyer’s sun is in Cancer, moon probably in Leo. If the moon is in Leo, only it and Mercury are in a fire sign. Since Meyer is in sports, I’m going to assume moon in Leo.
Moon in Leo, by the way, loves attention. Sun is Cancer is needy (to an earth sign like me), so we have someone who needs attention and lots of it. If you don’t give him attention, he will do something emotionally immature to get it.
Heading OSU football is a truly wonderful way to have attention, full attention, from August to December (and the next year’s January) of every year.
How does Meyer get his attention fix during the summer?
Probably by putting on a tight swim suit and hanging out on the beach.
This is the second coach in the history of coaches in any sport anywhere where I extend an invitation to come over and watch football (or any sport). Only Meyer and his predecessor Jim Tressel have earned this honor.
OSU sure knows how to pick ‘em. Whoever is heading this committee is doing a fine, fine job.
Meyer has a mutable T-square with Pluto/Uranus in Virgo, Saturn in Pisces and Mars/Venus in Gemini.
There is also a loose fixed T-square with Jupiter (in Taurus) opposite Neptune (in Scorpio) loosely square Mercury and moon in Leo.
T-squares are tension. A T-square is three of four signs in a mode. When a transiting planet enters that fourth sign of the mode, a grand square results. Grand square time is a tough time when you have a T-square.
And then there’s sun in Cancer.
That sun in Cancer is alone, wandering trying to find a family, a group in which to belong.
The image I have is of a man looking for a comfortable chair. He has several chairs at home and decides none is a good fit. He decides to spend all of Sunday shopping. Because he’s a Cancer sun, he brings a family member, maybe his wife, maybe mom.
Meyer and companion go from store to store all day, sitting in chairs, testing comfort and driving the sales people crazy with questions.
At the end of the day, he still hasn’t purchased a chair.
Cancer likes comfort but Mars conjunct Venus in Gemini is seeking fun, interesting times and constant diversion.
Meyer probably hoards money (sun in Cancer) then spends it wildly (Venus/Mars in Gemini, moon in Leo) on a lavish party for friends.
Mars/Venus in Gemini changes its mind a lot. Take it to the same restaurant twice and it will wonder what else is out there.
Gemini always wants to see the options. He’s a cup, what do other cups look like?
Gemini is constantly changing and Cancer is just moody.
Meyer might have a daily personality like a restaurant has a daily soup. Regardless of personality, moon in Leo says it will be dramatic.
As for the outer planets, Pluto is currently transiting Capricorn, Uranus Aries and Neptune Pisces.
Pluto and Uranus are square and form, guess what, a T-square in Meyer’s chart.
I’m guessing with a mutable T-square, fixed T-square and transiting cardinal T-square, that Meyer has achieved a T-square balance where the friction of each is magically offset by the other frictions in house of cards tensegrity.
Or maybe he’s just going mad with irritation.
Neptune transiting Pisces is conjunct Meyer’s Saturn in Pisces. Yesterday an astrologer described Saturn in Pisces as a fear of chaos and general fear-based responses. With Neptune hovering, Meyer may be letting himself relax a bit. Or he will after Mars leaves Virgo at the end of the summer.
Meyer is probably having new-job anxiety which will subside somewhat when Mars enters Libra just in time for the next football season.
Jupiter in Taurus is a return position for Meyer so he’s having some nice financial gain right now, of course. He’s probably buying property as we blog.
Saturn in Libra shouldn’t be causing Meyer too much trouble as it leaves Libra. When it enters Scorpio in October, Meyer may be feeling some personal heat for personal dramatic episodes.
I think Meyer’s personality will add both drama and fun to a sport that should be both dramatic and fun. OSU football is about belonging to the excitement.
Urban understands both belonging and excitement. Meyer’s chart suggests there’s never a dull moment when he’s around.
