Posted by extempjunk Mars in the fifth house is supposed to be a big placement for athletes. Especially if Mars in Aries (exalted).
Really? I have Mars in Capricorn (exalted) in the 5th house, but am not competitive enough to be particularly athletic. Then again, my natal Mars is retrograde, which is supposed to make me hate competition. I do like to push myself to the limit when I exercise, though. I like to do cardio to the point where I'm in immense pain and can't breathe. lol
Capricorn, huh? I'm betting you'd be a fab long-distance runner or endurance-sport athlete
Posted by Happy Scorpio I'm a huge sports nut, so I got curious and started looking up some Famous Pro Athletes and their Birthdays to see which sign they were. After searching through most of the famous/well-known athletes of the past and present, I came to the conclusion that the sign that has the Greatest Pro Athletes was Aquarius
Check out this list of Athletes who were Born under the sign "Aquarius"...
Michael Jordan Babe Ruth Hank Aaron Jackie Robinson Jim Brown Wayne Gretzky Bill Russell Hakeem Olajuwon Lawrence Taylor Jack Nicklaus Mark Spitz Greg Louganis Randy Moss Steve Nash Oscar De La Hoya
So you've got the Greatest Basketball, Baseball, Hockey (and arguably Football) Player of All-Time under Aquarius. That's insane.
I noticed that Capricorn also had some Great Athletes (most of who are still actively playing today), such as...
Muhammad Ali Tiger Woods Lebron James Dwyane Wade Joe Frazier George Foreman Eli Manning
Hmm, what is it though about Aquarius that makes them so damn good at Sports?
Oscar de la hoya was not a "great" boxer he lost all his big fights.
Aquarius shines in team sports but in individual sports is very poor. Kimbo slice, Oscar de la hoya, Victor Ortiz. Many of the famous " quitters" in boxing are aquarians. That is because aquarius is in detriment placed in the sun.
Lebron james lacks killer instinct, he has mars in pisces and that seriously affects him adversely.
Muhammed Ali would " nap" in fights and not push the envelope ( mars in taurus)
Michael Jordon has his MArs in Leo so that made up for much of his Aquarius, as well as a fire moon.
Best for pure athleticism is a Mars in Capricorn, Mars in Aries, Mars in Sagittarius, Mars Leo. Moon in water or fire.
Best for guile, craftiness, good hands, composure under pressure, Mars in the air signs and Mars Virgo. moon in air sign.
regardless of his mars placement, Lebron is still the best player in the NBA right now..im not even a lebron fan but even i will admit that much..plus i think that his mars in pisces is the reason why he's also good with assists as well as scoring and rebounding..he's not a complete ball hog like kobe
