Marcus Rashford, the Manchester United footballer, fought valiantly for poor kids needing free school meals over the holidays and forced Boris Johnson into a sharp U-turn. He’s been praised for refusing to give in and making his arguments stick.
He was born 31 October 1997 in Manchester with a single-parent mother and several siblings and had a childhood where food was not in plentiful supply. He’s a New Moon in Scorpio conjunct Chiron with Mercury also in forceful Scorpio; plus a forced-to-be-self-reliant Saturn in Aries and a passionately enthusiastic Mars Venus in sporting Sagittarius.
Tr Uranus is opposing his Sun and Chiron (maybe Moon) through this year so turning his life upside down; though there will be pressures with his Solar Arc Saturn opposition his Sun.
An astro-parallel is Colin Kaepernick, who started the US football reaction against police brutality by kneeling during the national anthem in 2016. It caused outrage and cost him his career in the three seasons following. He subsequently sued NFL. He was born 3 November 1987 and has his Sun and Pluto conjunct in Scorpio, which like Rashford, is being upended by tr Uranus in opposition now and for the next year. So quite a turnaround as the Black Lives Matter movement gains mainstream support and he receives belated praise. Kaepernick also has his Venus in Scorpio; and Saturn Uranus in Sagittarius trine Jupiter in Aries.
Raheem Sterling, another Manchester United, has also been vocal in the sporting response to BLM, with players kneeling before the opening match of the Premier League’s return. Born 8 December 1994 in Jamaica, he’s a Sun Mercury in Sagittarius with a stupendously confident, influential and super-determined Jupiter Pluto in Scorpio square Mars in Leo; with Venus also in Scorpio. A force of nature.
Scorpio rules when it comes to making protests that matter.
