Determination and athletic ability are symbolized by the archetype of Mars the warrior. He is the motivating force through which we feel compelled to act – nothing can stop him. This trait is perfectly represented in the achievements of endurance swimmer Diana Nyad.
Recently the 64 year old Nyad successfully achieved her lifelong goal of swimming from Cuba to Florida. What an amazing achievement and what a fantastic example of the strength and physical fitness possible at the age of 64!
Michel Gauqelin set out many years ago to disprove the validity of astrology only to become one of its greatest proponents. His work proved that Mars was very prominent in the chart of athletes and this is certainly the case in Nyad’s natal chart.
This journey has always been about reaching your own other shore no matter what it is, and that dream continues ~ Diana Nyad
Nyad first attempted this treacherous swim at 38 years old. She then tried twice in 2011, and again last year. But this year she did it and the planets were behind her! At the time her progressed Mars was on top of her natal sun in the determined sign of Leo no less. This gave her the sheer strength and stamina to succeed.
The transiting Sun on that memorable day was also on top her natal Saturn, indicating prominence and achievement through nothing other than hard work. The transiting Moon was also right on top of her natal Moon at 2pm Eastern Time as she arrived in Key West, shooting to fame right at the mid-heaven of her chart (the point of recognition and career).
Neptune (ruler of the ocean) was progressed onto her chart’s part of fortune and the transiting mid-heaven (public attention) was right on top of her solid and determined Mercury (intellect) in the hard working sign of Virgo!
Everything really is described and predicted by the planets.
After her triumph Nyad said, “I have got three messages: One is we should never ever give up. Two is you never are too old to chase your dreams. Three is it looks like a solitary sport, but it’s a team.”
