them on their feet. The guys wonder at his skill. The women swoon, wanting
a chance encounter with the shortstop. What is all this about Derek Jeter?
no mistake. Jeter’s good. He has soft hands, a strong arm, a good
eye, a powerful bat and looks that leave them dropping like flies.
If you’re a Yankee fan, the pinstripes on Jeter’s tailored uniform
mesmerize you. Personally I like David Cone, Roger Clemens and Scott
Brosius, but all I hear from Yankee fans is Jeter, Jeter, Jeter.
Jeter (born June 26, 1974, Pequannock, New Jersey) is not your run-of-the-mill
Cancer. The strong, solid Saturn, planet of integrity, consistency,
discipline and hard work, lines up with Jeter’s Sun in Cancer. This
makes Jeter an icon to the Bronx fans and blue-collar workers, and
poster boy to many, young and old. Saturn and the Sun join forces
with a retrograde Mercury in Cancer. This backward-moving planet inspires
him to speak with care and consideration. What an interview he gives.
He’s nice to fans. And how many times has he won good guy awards?
the above alignments do not solve the mystery. There’s more to the
man. In Jeter’s chart, Pluto, the planet of personal power, magnetism
and irresistible charisma, embraces the source of emotions, the Moon,
by direct contact. With Pluto and the Moon in cahoots, his sex appeal
comes at you like the base surge of a nuclear blast. Strong vibes
and a fast smile—woo-hoo, that’s something to write home about! Astrologically
it’s a joke that his favorite song (according to one fan’s website)
is “Hypnotize.” That’s what he does. No matter where he goes or what
he does, and regardless of the kind of year he had (and last was very
good, no mistaking that) he’ll draw a crowd. Truth is, he could be
a peanut vendor and draw a crowd.
also stands staunchly at a right angle to the Sun-Saturn-Mercury collection
of planetary baseball cards. The Pluto-to-Moon madness sends surges
of power to his basic ego, work ethic and sometimes withdrawn communication
(the Sun-Saturn-Mercury conjunction). This means Jeter is not entirely
easy to read. Be assured, what he gives you on the surface more than
likely does not reflect what’s cooking down below.
Derek, how did you feel about being struck by the pitch the at-bat
following your grand slam?” someone asked.
he replied, “he (the pitcher) was frustrated and we were beating them
badly. So I guess maybe the ball slipped.”
translates through Pluto’s undercurrent dialogue to, “he does that
again, it better not be in New York,” but he’d never say it. He’s
too nice a guy.
apparently has some sort of trade agreement with Con Edison or whatever
the utility is in the Bronx. He puts electricity in the air. This
comes from two planets standing on opposite sides of the circle of
space in his chart. These are the electrifying Uranus, which renders
unexpected and so-to-speak “out of left field” twists of fate. Uranus
stands guard opposite the master healer, Chiron. This angle is associated
with healing by astrologers. Is Jeter a healer? You bet he is.
makes people feel good. He represents the faith one needs in never
giving up and always trying hard, and shows what can be done if you
set strong intentions and adhere to all your goals. Baseball, of which
he is part, instills faith. Former Yankee hero Yogi Berra once said,
“It ain’t over til it’s over.” Jeter’s ability supports Berra’s claim.
If you always maintain faith in your ability and realize that baseball
is a game of inches and timing and even the slightest variation can
bring about your next win, you press on. Skill inspires that belief
in all of us. Grace, like that of Jeter doing his two step ballet
while turning a double play, reminds us of moving through life with
someone’s gonna turn the tables and put a spell on Jeter. And when that
happens, watch. Jeter’ll get caught looking. But you gotta admit, like
his average work day, he’s a good catch.
