Astrology Meets March Madness: Pitino vs. Calipari

During the NCAA men’s basketball tournament every game is big, but one of the games coming up this week seems to loom larger than all the rest. That’s the matchup between the University of Louisville and the University of Kentucky. I took a look at the horoscopes of the two coaches, Rick Pitino and John Calipari, (partial horoscopes, of course, no time of birth) and was surprised to see that both were currently laboring through some pretty horrendous aspects.

I’ve listed the aspects below for those who are interested. The aspects basically indicate that both men are dealing with obstructions and frustrations. I know from news reports that Calipari has issues with a hip that needs to be replaced. I am not aware of any health problems for Pitino, but these aspects do indicate trouble involving physical ailments.

There are some “good” aspects too, and this is where it gets tricky. Which coach has enough positive aspects to override the negative ones on game day? I’m giving the edge to Calipari. I think the positive aspects in his chart indicate that he will get the breaks, and in a game between two teams that seem to be evenly matched, that could easily make the difference.

You can use these links to see partial horoscopes for Rick Pitino and John Calipari in Astrodatabank. This link will take you to an article that explains the aspects. Keep in mind that without a time of birth, astrologers can only see part of the information that is available in a horoscope.
