The Zodiac at the Olympics

Disclaimer: with astrology, it is possible to decipher our behaviour or to get a glimpse of the future. This is a theory which cannot be systematically tested. On the other hand, one may wish to follow an easier path, which puts into practice the principles listed in astrology textbooks. In a way, this is precisely the type of practical exercises that we suggest in this Lifestyle column.

We recommend that you follow our advice with both a light and observing mind. Beyond entertainment, the aim is to understand how each of us behaves in various fields; thus, we can better define and fathom, by deduction, how we have developed our natal predispositions. In addition, why wouldn't we be able to guess the talent(s) which we could harness in the future, according to our astrological profile.

The following information is given for signs in their purest form. Depending on the case, it is advisable that you check your planetary dominant or the sign of your Ascendant, the position, quality and aspects of the significators of the area involved, and if applicable, the position of the planets associated with it. For instance, for family affairs, examine the 4th House and its ruler, as well the Moon; for romance, examine the 5th House and its ruler, as well as Venus, etc.

The large number of books we have read, and more particularly, the experience we have drawn from the study of thousands of charts, urge us to be cautious. However, we thought that it may be interesting to provide a few concrete indications, which will turn out to be accurate, quite often.

Spurred by a keen competitive spirit, you wait for the beginning of the Rio games with great impatience! You have concern for neither health nor pollution issues.

Nevertheless, you are irritated by the delays in the construction of certain infrastructures. Had you been in charge, it is obvious that the deadline would have been easily met. In any case, you are most unlikely to miss the opportunity to go there. You will enjoy the unique atmosphere, full of excitement, of this great sporting event.

You appreciate mainly events involving speed and requiring individual talents of course. Usain Bolt, for instance, fascinates you; you wholeheartedly hope that he will be in top shape. He may thus add a few lines to his impressive record. You also rejoice that professional boxers are allowed to participate for the first time.

Whereas the Rio rendezvous is getting nearer rapidly, you observe the growing turmoil with calm, and even with a bit of distrust. Owing to all the things heard about this big premiere in South America, and even more in a buzzing city like Rio, you express reservations. But since you are easy going, once the torch is lighted, you become engrossed in the Games.

Given your nature, martial arts are attractive: therefore, you will follow with interest judo, especially Teddy Riner, the awaited prodigy, and perhaps karate or taekwondo. Athletes who have self-control as well as physical and mental strength impress you.

The Olympics? All by yourself, you could replace the information services of the Organising Committee! You have already downloaded, quite some time ago, their applications, or programmed alerts in order to know everything.

In addition, you pay extreme attention to all the facets of these Olympics: social topics linked to the event, opening show, news about the athletes, the identity of each country's flag bearer, the number of participants, in brief, you could imagine a Trivial Pursuit on this theme.

More seriously, you enjoy above all collective sports blending cleverness and team spirit. You prefer ball games such as for example basketball of course, but also football and tennis. More surprisingly, ping pong or table tennis makes you laugh and sharpens your own reflexes. Because it is certain that, as far as speedy reaction is concerned, you yourself could almost to participate in the Games.

Cancer, Cancer rising, the Moon dominant, or strong 4th House

The Olympics for Cancer, Cancer rising, the Moon dominant, or strong 4th House

What you like in the Games is to watch winners overwhelmed by emotion while they religiously listen to their national anthem. Because, although you are not very versed in sporting events, you are moved by people's attachment to their homeland, whatever it may be.

You are interested in athletes who have had a special history and have overcome incredible challenges before asserting themselves. In some way, you see in them an encouraging example for yourself. Furthermore, you are thoroughly informed of the great moments which have marked the Games in the past. The idea of referring to the contests in Athens is very attractive, to say the least.

You remember the feats in Beijing, those of the Millennium in Sydney, and even in Atlanta or Barcelona. You shed a tear remembering Nadia Comaneci, the Romanian gymnast who scored the first perfect 10, or Carl Lewis and his 10 Olympic medals. Actually, like you, he was born with the Sun in Cancer.

Leo, Leo rising, the Sun dominant, or strong 5th House

The Olympics for Leo, Leo rising, the Sun dominant, or strong 5th House

Shine, shine, and shine again. Since there is nothing better in the Pantheon of sport than the Olympics Games, one might as well say that you are completely in. And you do not conceal your admiration for the half-gods that exceptional athletes are.

On the other hand, you are not interested in water polo or in modern pentathlon. You prefer to focus on the most popular games, this goes without saying. The 100 meter-finals, where you wait for Usain Bolt, the 4x100 meter relay, men and women. You will watch tennis to find out if the match crowns the eternal Roger Federer or maybe the tenacious Novak Djokovic.

Since you are quite fond of elitist leisure, you rejoice that golf is included in the programme of Rio. Finally, regardless of the type of sport, you are happy to watch the award of medals and laurel wreaths. Classic and classy.

Virgo, Virgo rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 6th House

The Olympics for Virgo, Virgo rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 6th House

It is high time to bring back order and discipline in these modern games, and you await Rio rendezvous with eagerness.

You are glad to see that the IOC has shown its toughness on doping. For too long, the control authorities have been terribly neglectful, in your opinion. Therefore, you are not going to cry over excluded federations, on the contrary! However, other issues cloud this 31st Olympiad. Rio does not seem to be a champion in terms of organisation, and you deplore the pollution of the pools of water. Several works pledged, such as the underground, will not be ready on time, and you expect some kind of Brazilian style chaos.

Regarding the events themselves, you are likely to pay close attention to "modest" sports such as long-distance running, rhythmic gymnastics, or fencing, which require precision. And you prefer unexpected winners to stars. Having said this, you are a fan of chronometers and of rigorous measures. Your help is expected in order to decide who the winner is by a hair's breadth.

Libra, Libra rising, Venus dominant, or strong 7th House

The Olympics for Libra, Libra rising, Venus dominant, or strong 7th House

Regarding the Olympics Games, for you, the motto assigned to Pierre de Coubertin – actually coming from Ethelbert Talbot, bishop of Pennsylvania – perfectly encapsulates your state of mind: "The most important thing is not winning but taking part".

You do so in your personal way, considering the event as a colourful parenthesis which may inspire style and values to you. You appreciate proud losers, the followers of Poulidor and all those who have class. With your expert eye, you assess the fashion victims that the stars of the stadium have become: with their last Nike, their personalised clothes designed in exclusive partnership with a brand, you have the feeling that you are attending a fashion week. It must be said that the cameras cater for all tastes, with close-ups on runners' painted fingernails or swimmers' tattoos. You approve all this, provided it is elegant.

As far as you are concerned, your predilection goes to team sports and to everything which, here again, contains strong aesthetic logics: beach-volley, diving, and artistic gymnastics of course!

Scorpio, Scorpio rising, Pluto dominant, or strong 8th House

The Olympics for Scorpio, Scorpio rising, Pluto dominant, or strong 8th House

Without trying to be nit picking (although you adore it) you think that the Rio Games do not look very promising, don't you? This is a little sentence that you are glad to add in any conversation, ready to put forward your points if necessary. The mosquito transmitting a virus, the doping which seems to plague many sports, the social and economic mess of Rio, whereas the Organising Committee strives to show only its best facets. One can rely on you for remembering the seamy sides.

Having said this, you enjoy competitions, especially if the winners get their revenge on fate or on other contenders. This is how you function, with passion, never forgetting anything.

Therefore, no one will not be astonished to learn that you are partial to combat sports, such as fencing or karate for example. It is also with a little touch of almost sadistic curiosity that you watch weightlifting or shot put. Actually, you are among the few zodiacal signs which accept quite well the sacrifices required to reach one's aim.

Sagittarius, Sagittarius rising, Jupiter dominant, or strong 9th House

The Olympics for Sagittarius, Sagittarius rising, Jupiter dominant, or strong 9th House

Open to the world, the Olympic ideal matches your mind frame, full of energy. You find the mix of populations attending the Games very fascinating. The Kenyans, who used to excel at the marathon, the Chinese at ping-pong, and The Jamaicans at sprint. You do not deny the traditions which crown magnificent champions.

But you do not disdain discoveries. This year, you were excited immediately by the fact that the competitions are taking place for the first time in South America, and too bad if everything is not perfect. At the opening ceremony, you follow with a keen eye the small delegations of the most unusual nations: Vanuatu, Samoa, the Comoros, Aruba, the Caiman Islands, Mongolia… the list is endless.

Endowed with a sporty nature, you adore being stimulated by the weirdest feats. In analogy with your sign, horse riding is enjoyable of course, as well as archery, the latter matching your tendency to aim far.

Capricorn, Capricorn rising, Saturn dominant, or strong 10th House

The Olympics for Capricorn, Capricorn rising, Saturn dominant, or strong 10th House

Without expressing it noisily (this is not your style), you appreciate the principle of the Olympic Games in the sense that this moment is the crowning of long and hard efforts. It is the reward of pure merit.

You are the first person who remembers that athletes must lead a rigorous Spartan life full of uncertainties. You appreciate above all those who must brave the elements: open-water swimmers, and marathoners of course. You are not too enthusiastic about the stars of football, golf, or tennis, who get a great deal of media attention, and who are too busy with their numerous sponsors.

You care for morality, and you are glad that the IOC claims to clean up, even though it boils down to big money matters too often. This is why you prefer Paralympics Games, because you are deeply impressed by the participants' courage. Far from flashes and cameras, they achieve real feats in an authentic ambiance.

Aquarius, Aquarius rising, Uranus dominant, or strong 11th House

The Olympics for Aquarius, Aquarius rising, Uranus dominant, or strong 11th House

If you were to be listened to, the formula would have been through a few upheavals. Not only in terms of participants but also regarding the general course of the competitions.

During this edition in Rio, you are most likely to be happy to learn that several elements match your wishes and bring in fresh air. This year the IOC has allowed certain sportsmen who underwent the migratory crisis to compete under the Olympic banner as "Olympic refugee athletes". This is good news, which restores some degree of justice and illustrates the Olympic ideal's humanistic values.

You are also interested in individual and original sports such as mountain and BMX bike. You impatiently wait to see other sports such as baseball or climbing, which may be included in the programme someday. In the meantime, the entertaining side of the Games are very attractive. Let the festivities start!

Pisces, Pisces rising, Neptune dominant, or strong 12th House

The Olympics for Pisces, Pisces rising, Neptune dominant, or strong 12th House

What you like most in the Games is the beginning with the Olympic Torch ceremony, symbol of friendship between peoples who have passed it on since the last Olympiad.

As for the rings, they also show the union and the respect of all nations and all continents, without discrimination. To these fundamental principles of universality and humanism, you say a big yes. You understand very well that such stakes go beyond the limits of sport and may directly affect the daily life of a large part of the Earth. Thus, sportsmen have become planetary models, ambassadors who inspire millions of people worldwide.

More concretely, competitions involving water interest you above all. You are very likely to wait with curiosity for the announced return of the phenomenon Michael Phelps in swimming. Sailing, rowing, or water polo are attractive also owing to the collective effort.
