The second Invictus Games for paralympic armed service personnel and veterans has opened in Florida. It was created in 2014 by Prince Harry, inspired by the US Warrior Games, and now looks set to be an international annual fixture, with the next one in 2017 in Canada. Invictus means undefeated/unconquered.
The first was opened in London at 8pm 10 September 2014, with a special message from Michelle Obama who has taken a keen interest in military families.
This opening chart puts an influential Pluto in the 10th square Moon Uranus Ascendant in feisty, go-ahead Aries opposition Mercury North Node and Descendant. There’s a Sun Venus in Virgo, in the 6th house of health, trine Pluto. And adventurous performing 5th house Jupiter in Leo trine Uranus Moon Asc; and a military and formidably determined Saturn Mars in Scorpio, which is a military astro-signature.
Over the first games tr Saturn was conjunct Prince Harry’s Midheaven making him more serious about his career responsibilities; with his Solar Arc MC conjunct his Mars in Sagittarius so sparking his sporting enthusiasm. Tr Pluto was conjunct his Ascendant and his Solar Arc Uranus – so all a hugely significant turning point for him and his image.
What was serendipitous as well the Opening MC was conjunct his 12th house Jupiter (conjunct Neptune) which will give him an understanding of others’ suffering and a desire to help.
