As a Toronto native, I can’t help notice this city’s Rapturous response to the Raptor’s winning the Eastern Conference Finals on May 25th.
This is a historic day as The Raptor’s are the first Canadian team to be in the modern NBA championship Playoffs and tonight May 30 is the first Championship game to be played outside of America. Toronto Raptors fans and Canadians are in a frenzy of anticipation.
Basketball is a Canadian sport. Invented by Canadian James Naismith in 1891 while he was teaching at a YMCA in Springfield Massachusetts. basketball is now one of the most popular sports in the world. See link below
Lets looks at the Raptor’s Birth chart born May 16, 1995 No birth time using Noon Toronto
The Raptor’s are an earthy, stubborn sensuous persistent TAURUS team. Ruled by VENUS, the planet of grace, socializing, money and luxury. Venus is at 29 degrees Aries which suits their Raptor’s name very well. 29 Aries is the critical warrior degree.
They have PLUTO the planet of Power, death and rebirth, transformation, big money. depth, sex, secrets, strategists, at the last degree of Scorpio which it rules in modern Astrology. This is a Hugely powerful enriching and willful placement. Once the Raptors hit their stride they have immense worldly power. They need to use their X-Ray vision ability to see right through their opponent’s strategies and act accordingly.
Pluto also squares MARS in VIRGO creating a T-square with their SUN. They have a lot of brain power, ability to work hard and be of service to the community. T
The MOON, which is the emotions moods and the people in an event chart is in sporty fiery truth-telling Sagittarius, and also sign of animals-dinosaurs too. I always felt that Toronto is the perfect Sagittarius city with its 125 different ethnic groups which the Raptors bring all the diversity together with.
MERCURY in GEMINI opposite the Moon
Mercury rules Gemini and communications are a huge forte for this team. This can also make them late to get into their stride as they don’t want to grow up. Deciding what they really want is an issue.
Mercury opposite the MOON indicates an emotional balance between the head and the feelings.
RAPTOR’S have a GRAND MUTABLE CROSS
Saturn in PISCES opposes Chiron in VIRGO square Moon Mercury is a tense aspect.
The Raptors have some karmic issues with playing the underdog. They are perfectionists and too self-critical. They donate a lot of money to charities, do a lot of community work and raise awareness for poor youths.
The Raps also have JUPITER in SAGITTARIUS @ 20 degrees in its home sign where it Rules. This is an excellent planet to have and the Raptors are having their best year in 12 under their Jupiter return right NOW with Jupiter Retrograde.
MARS at 26 LEO
Gives the Raptors a strong ROYAL aspect. Mars is conjunct to Fixed Star REGULUS the Heart of the Lion. They act entitled. They have will power and are a dramatically oriented team. Leo rules the heart and will power.
They have a Grand Fire trine of Moon Venus and Mars
This is positive active energy.
The team’s North Node is in Scorpio at 5 degrees
They need to evolve into going for power to be able to pick themselves up and emotionally transform any situation into a Phoenix rebirth. Scorpio is power, will, soul essence, psychology, research, strategy and wealth.
DRAKE the rapper and Mascor born in Toronto has his SUN and PLUTO conjunct the teams North Node. He is literally their guiding superstar. He brings the team and Toronto incredible wealth and notoriety. Drakes Jupiter squares the team’s, Mercury in Gemini and their Jupiter. He is their biggest cheerleader and media person literally.
URANS and NEPTUNE conjunct in Capricorn and Aquarius
The Raptors were born when Uranus planet of inventions, new technology, independence and team building entered its modern home sign. They are built on the mass communications and egalitarian ideas. On December 21, 2020 Jupiter and Saturn will have their Grand Conjunction at 0 Aquarius and this will boost the Raptor’s worldly status.
Neptune at 27 Capricorn indicates a desire to be philanthropic with their power and wealth as a business.
OPENING GAME OF NBA today May 30 ASTROLOGY
The Raptors are going up against the 2017 and 2018 Champs the Golden State Warriors who have won the last 4 out of 5 championships.
Moon is Void of Course which means outcomes are difficult to predict
Jupiter Return for Raps is on now this is very lucky even if Jupiter Retrograde
URANUS, the planet of Revolution, high energy, higher consciousness thinking, teamwork management and lightning fast moves is on the Raps SOUTH NODE. They will have to quickly change their past strategies if they are going to win. Since this is all new territory for them this also bodes well.
NEPTUNE in PISCES by transit is conjunct Saturn opposite CHIRON in VIRGO Square the MOON in SAGITTARIUS
This is the Wounded Healer aspect. If the team were a person I’d caution them about being too Gaga over a serious situation, addiction, debt repayment-Saturn; work and health- CHIRON in VIRGO. There may be some injuries they have to watch out for. Also They have to play scrupulously by the rules-Sagittarius. The Moon symbolizes the people. They may also have karmic enemies in the Golden State Warriors- that’s Saturn in Pisces. This also represents The Raptors tendency to choke or shoot themselves in the foot which is a very Canadian – “sorry,sorry” aspect.
PLUTO and SATURN in Capricorn plus South Node
Conjunct Neptune and sextiles Saturn in Pisces and quincunx or creating a Finger of God aspect to Mars in LEO. They have to be playing with all their hearts and will power.
I believe the Raptors have a very good chance of winning but they will have to play their hears and souls out.
