Swansong for the Lightning Bolt


There will be a few tears in the London Athletics stadium on Saturday as legendary sprinter Usain ‘Lightning’ Bolt competes in his last individual race before he retires. Currently he is the fastest man in the world and reigning world and Olympic champion in the 100 and 200 metres and 4X100 metres relay. But he has been dogged recently by injury disrupting his training and age is slowing him down marginally so a win this week isn’t a certainty.

Born 21 August 1986, he has his Sun and Mercury in showy Leo, both trine Uranus; and his Uranus is in an adventurous, risk-taking square to Jupiter (Moon) in Pisces. So nothing shy and retiring about him. His Jupiter is sesquisquare Pluto (135 degrees) and his Jupiter/Pluto midpoint aspects his Sun and is exactly conjunct his Mars in Capricorn – so plenty of high-octane energy and confidence. His Pluto is square Mercury and conjunct his Sun/Mars midpoint – when he talks he gets his points across forcibly and his determination and competitiveness is second to none.

It’s not the easiest year for him with an uncertain his Solar Arc Saturn conjunct his Neptune; tr Uranus trine his Sun and the Leo Eclipse in a challenging conjunction to his Sun; and the Lunar Eclipse opposition his Mercury; plus tr Pluto conjunct his Solar Arc Uranus – so a life-changing time.

His future won’t be short of personal appearance work, sponsorship deals and the like though he’s expressed a wish to play football for Manchester United when he retires from the track. Athletics will miss him. He almost single-handedly transformed it into a top spectator sport.

  1. Thanks for this Marjorie

    He will be greatly missed on the track but he will still be very visible in Jamaica with the exciting projects and initiatives he will be a part of.

    Can I check what the orb is for when midpoints aspect personal planets?

    All the best J
