Maria Sharapova, the Russian professional tennis player who has admitted to using a banned drug on, she says, medical advice, has seen her lucrative sponsorship deals fall away. Last year she earned a reputed $30 million.
Born 19 April 1987 in Nyagan, Russia, with two suggested birth times of 3am and 2pm, she’s a Sun Aries trine Saturn Uranus in Sagittarius and a Sag/Capricorn Moon. So fiery, disciplined, a go getter. She’s known as a powerful, aggressive and noisy player.
Her chart, otherwise, is riddled with quincunxes. A Yod of Mars in Gemini sextile Mercury (Jupiter) in Aries inconjunct Pluto – will give her a ruthlessly competitive, controlling streak though the strain caused by the inconjuncts means it will act erratically. Bil Tierney says of this Yod: “ If mismanaged, this powerful Yod could suggest inevitable changes which may de-elevate the individual to a more frustrating level of obscurity and isolation.”
She’s also got Mars inconjunct Neptune – so again a sense of strain, of never really fitting in.
Although she’ll get a minor lift soon from tr Uranus conjunct her Sun/Jupiter midpoint she’s got a less than pleasant two or three years ahead. Her Solar Arc Mars will oppose her Neptune in 2017 which will be panicky and undermining. Solar Arc Pluto opposes her Mars, triggering her Yod, in 2018. And that’s worse – trapped, enraged, powerless; with a jolting tr Uranus conjunct Sun then as well. She’ll stay bullish throughout, but doesn’t look good.
