May 14 is Rob Gronkowski’s birthday.
I don’t know that much about American football, but I know who Rob Gronkowski is. I’m not surprised to discover that he’s a Taurus because who else but a Taurus would be nicknamed “Gronk”?
I pulled up his natal chart to see if there was anything that jumped out at me. It wasn’t much of a surprise to see that he has a “heavy” horoscope with the sun in Taurus, the moon in Virgo, and Saturn, Uranus and Neptune in Capricorn. His natal Mars is in Cancer and his natal Pluto is in Scorpio.
However, the three planets that are not in earth or water signs are all in the same sign. Gronk has Mercury, Venus and Jupiter in Gemini.
It’s a very interesting chart because of where many of the planets are located. Mercury, Saturn and Pluto are in the signs over which they rule, Mars is in the sign which is considered to be its fall, and Jupiter is in its detriment. It’s not unusual to see a chart with a couple of planets in dignity, detriment, exaltation or fall, but five is a lot. Without putting them into the houses, though, I can’t really do that much “interpretation” of this fascinating chart.
I can say that a big guy like Gronk (with such a seemingly heavy chart) is a lot more mentally agile than I would have expected. I suppose that’s one of the reasons why he is considered to be one of the greatest tight ends in NFL history. He’s fast on his feet because he has terrific reaction time: Mercury in Gemini endows him with that quality. I have the opposite placement — Mercury in Sagittarius — and I have terrible reaction time, especially when something is hurtling toward me.
It’ll be interesting to see what happens in his life now that he has retired at the ripe old age of thirty years old. He’s just experienced his first Saturn return, and now him and all the kids of his generation are going to be feeling the effects of Jupiter dancing over top of their three Capricorn natal planets throughout 2020. For many of them, the mixed messages the universe will be sending them over the next year are going to be hard to handle.
I wish them luck. They’re going to need it.
