Jurgen Klopp has startled football fans in announcing he is retiring as Liverpool FC manager after eight and a half years in charge, having won every top-level competition available to him. He says he has run out of energy. Though Manchester City FC manager Pep Guardiola thinks he will be back with another team after he recharges his batteries.
Klopp, 16 June 1967 7.28 am Stuttgart, Germany, has a friendly 11th house Gemini Sun inconjunct Neptune and square Uranus Pluto in Virgo. He has a self-reliant, well-organised, good-executive-material Saturn in Aries conjunct his Midheaven in a disciplined opposition to Mars square Mercury in Cancer, which will make him direct in his comments though maybe behind the scenes. On the surface, he has an upbeat and amiable Jupiter Venus in Leo on his Ascendant.
He has been drooping under tr Neptune square his Sun through 2022/23 which could well have sapped his energy and motivation. His Progressed Moon has been going through his 4th since early 2022 which is usually a time to hunker down at home, be introspective and take a chance to reflect on what comes next. From early 202 as well tr Saturn moved into his 8th house which can feel under-supported and a time when others were relying on his resilience so it can feel draining. He was on a nodal return as well through 2022/23.
Nothing too drastic pointing to a significant career change but a cumulative build up of various factors. He looks upbeat through this summer with two Jupiter midpoints fired up and they run into early 2025 though he will be fairly disoriented as well into 2025. 2026/27 look to be discouraging years but with tr Saturn heading upwards in his chart I can’t imagine him retiring altogether.
Liverpool FC 3 June 1892 is also a Gemini with Neptune Pluto as well as the Sun there square Saturn in Virgo. It is showing signs of an upheaval and disruption this year and next with tr Pluto square the Uranus and sadness from tr Saturn square the Neptune, Pluto, Sun. The SA Pluto Neptune oppose their Jupiter in 2025 which I couldn’t even begin to interpret but probably not good news.
