Update 11th Sept 2012. The US Open final took place one day late between Djokovic & Murray, an absolute epic 5 set, 5 hour match.
Och well, the wee Scot squeaked it and bang goes my prediction. Do I mind? Not at all. I knew the final was going to be close and I’m so pleased for Andy Murray. His 1st Grand Slam win. Tough for Nole though.
I promised that I would post a prediction for the US Open after my success with Wimbledon (see post here).
As I have stated in previous posts, Jupiter is the success planet and has been in Gemini since 11th June 2012, so this is an interesting Grand Slam season for the top four mens’ tennis seeds.
Both Nadal and Djokovic are Sun Geminis and Federer and Murray both have their Midheaven (success) point in Gemini and so far this year, the four of them have shared out the glory. Djokovic beat Nadal in the Australia Open, Nadal beat Djokovic in the French Open, Federer beat Murray at Wimbledon and Murray beat Federer at the Olympics. How equal is that?
The US Open starts on 27th August 2012 and ends on 9th September 2012. Who will win? The astrology chart for the opening match is below and we know that Nadal is sadly out injured. I actually made my prediction some months ago and I have money on Djokovic to win the mens’ title. I also put a sneaky bet on Kim Clijsters (seeded 23) to be the surprise winner of the womens’ tournament.
These really are instinctual bets and my heart is not engaged as it was with Wimbledon but some of you did ask so here’s my reply. The key astrology is as follows:
Djokovic has an Ascendant of 16 Capricorn 04 and the Moon in the chart of the opening match falls at 17 Capricorn 35 picking Djokovic out as the key contender. Plus, Djokovic has his Mercury at 18 Gemini 12 and both Mercury/Gemini show prominently in tennis players’ charts due to the agility and dexterity necessary to be a top player.
Jupiter is close to this point (14/15 Gemini throughout the tournament), although you can’t forget that Jupiter in Gemini is also transiting the success sector of both Federer and Murray’s charts but moving further away from their actual Midheaven (success) point.
I just read a review by Boris Becker who believes there may be a surprise winner of the US Open mens’ competition. We shall see but my money’s on Djokovic to end the year as he started it with another Grand Slam win.
For those who are interested, Kim Clistjers birth data is: June 8th 1983, 2:17am CED, Bilzen, Belgium. She has a Sun/Mars conjunction at 15/16 Gemini close to where Jupiter is in the heavens during the tournament. Her Saturn is 28 Libra 10 conjunct the ASC of the tournament opening chart plus her Venus is at 1 Leo 47, slightly out of orb but close enough to the opening chart’s MC. It’s a wild card shout!
