Friday the 13th
Olympics 2004 ::
On Friday, the
13th August 2004, the Olympic Games began, returning to the country
of Greece and city Athens, its initial birthplace after a gap of
108 years. The gap of 108 years when interpreted numerologically
corresponds to the number 9 meaning totality or completion. The
date 08-13-2004 also adds up to another 9. What a mere coincidence
and mind it there is the likelihood of a drastic action-packed scenario.
this year are held during the Mercury retrograde period. Therefore
the outcome of the Olympics in general and with the athletes in
particular will be totally unexpected and dramatic. During a Mercury
retrograde, the planet supposedly goes backwards in orbit and this
indicates the possibility or accidents, errors and doping news.
During the entire
course of this Olympics, Mars opposes Uranus. In sport, the Uranus-Mars
combination typically corresponds to upsets and record-breaking
feats. Mars stands for a fierce and rash temperamental fight which
is clearly needed for such sporty fight. But Uranus' overturning
ability might turn the tables on the expected medal-winners. The
Uranus-Mars opposition corresponds to a number of surprising upsets
and defeats. There is the probability that competitors from small
nations could upset the favored large nation teams and individuals
in most of the events.
On a 13th Friday?
world and a significant chunk of the world population suspect bad
things will happen whenever the 13th day of a month occurs on a
Friday. Like many human beliefs, the fear of Friday the 13th known
as "Paraskevidekatriaphobia" isn't exactly
grounded in scientific logic and neither has any astrological significance.
The fear of Friday the 13th stems from the fear of the number 13
and the fear of Fridays. Both fears have deep roots in the Western
culture and most notable among the Christian populace. Thirteen
is significant to Christians because it is the number of people
who were present at the Last Supper (Jesus and his 12 apostles).
Judas, the apostle who betrayed Jesus, was the 13th member of the
party to join.
The number 13
could also have been considered Pagan because there are 13 months
in the pagan lunar calendar. On a Friday, 13th July the Olympic
committee, assembled in Moscow and chose Beijing as the venue for
the 2008 Olympic Games. This announcement came just hours after
Jupiter, the most benefic planet in the solar system moved into
Cancer. This seems to be a good omen eclipsing the superstition
behind the number 13 and the day of Friday.
In the Roman
calendar, Friday was devoted to Venus, the goddess of love. Venus
represents the Olympic games and the athletes involved. Hence the
fear of a 13th Friday can be expelled.

symbol - the Olympic symbol is five interwined circles rereprsenting
the five continents of this universe of ours. These circles also
symbolize Venus the morning and evening star which traces a perfect

to Venus, the Greeks used the 8 year cycle to organize their Olympic
Games. The four-year schedule of the Olympics follow the Venus´s
half-cycle. The five pointed star of Venus became the official Olympic
seal but later the five points were exchanged for five intersecting
rings to reflect the spirit of inclusion and harmony within the
games and also the five continents.
- the history behind
The first Olympics
were held in 776 BC. Every four years thereafter, until their cancellation
by the Roman government in 393 AD, the Olympics were held in Greece.
1,593 years later in 1896 the Olympic Games were resumed. Winners
in the ancient games did not receive any gold or silver medals.
Instead they were presented with olive branches and praise by poets
and philosophers. Also poets, artists, historians, and orators along
with athletes, demonstrated their myriad skills they possessed.
The chart for
the first Olympics shows a retrograde Mars conjoining Uranus and
opposing Pluto, resulting in a fierce competition. The Olympics
were revived on the 6th April 1896 in Athens. This took place with
during a grand trine involving Venus exalted in Pisces, Jupiter
exalted in Cancer, and Uranus/Saturn in Scorpio. The position of
Venus in Pisces is very significant for Greece because it marked
the establishment of their kingdom in 1830.
