I was doing increasingly well blogging Wimbledon until last year.  The top seeds seemed to fall away early on, and a new crop of tennis players came to the fore.  I indicated that I may not blog again, but here I am getting back on the horse.  I always learn from each wrong prediction…  As usual I will start with a handful of tennis players, and then look at others who emerge later.


Serena Williams

At the start of the French Open, Serena’s transits were lacklustre, even difficult.  She went out in an early round.  The end of Wimbledon looks very promising for her with Jupiter conjunct her North Node and trine her Uranus.  Perhaps she will avoid injury and last the course, triumphing once again.  The positioning of these transits is particularly good for doubles.

Li Na

I have not looked at Li Na’s chart before.  She is the first Asian to win a Grand Slam.  Her Sun sign is Pisces, which often shows outstanding talent.  She has Mercury square Jupiter, indicating a wide ranging mind, and a global traveller.  Her Venus squares Pluto which is extremely intense in relationships (her husband is her coach).  She does not have an easy chart altogether, and must have overcome many hurdles to reach her current status.  At the start of Wimbledon, Neptune transits her Sun, a confusing transit.  At the end the same transit is operational, being a long lasting influence, and additionally Jupiter opposes her Venus which could bring overoptimism.  The transits do not look very promising.  She could be a finalist, but I would expect her to remain No. 2 if so.

Simona  Halep

Here is another player I have not investigated before, though I did see her doing well in the French Open.  She is Romanian, and has Neptune conjunct her North Node natally.  This points to spiritual leadership potential, so she may have many followers who do not only follow her for her tennis playing.  She is Libran, one of the commonest Sun signs for tennis skill, because it involves a close monitoring of the person the other side of the net!  At the end of the French Open, Chiron was trine her Pluto, a supportive and profound transit.  This transit is still operative at the beginning of Wimbledon, so she should start well and continue throughout the tournament.  She may do at least as well as in the French Open.  She will also have the North Node sextile her Venus (ruling planet) at the end, so could be a finalist.

Agnieszka Radwanska

She has a bouncy, enthusiastic and energetic conjunction of Mars and Jupiter in her chart, which is useful in a sporting life.  But   Agnieszka has a natally depressive exact conjunction of Saturn and Neptune, and that conjunction is transited this year by Pluto, which is an enormous personal and psychological challenge.    Unless she is able to tackle it head on and overcome it, I imagine that it would take its toll on her in a tournament, with all she would need to process.  At the start of Wimbledon she also has Neptune conjunct her Venus (confusion in her personal life).  However the end of Wimbledon looks a little more upbeat, but this may be for social reasons.  The North Node trines her Mercury, and she may be thinking of taking up a teaching role.  Jupiter sextiles her Mars, so she will be super-energetic.  But Pluto will still be on her Saturn-Neptune.  In mid-July Jupiter will be sextile her Jupiter, so depending on where she is on or off the circuit, she could be very successful at that time.


Novak Djokovic

Novak Djokovic put up a brave fight against Rafael Nadal in the French Open, with the crowd largely supporting Nadal.  At that time he had some scintillating transits, and I would have expected him to do well, but crucially Saturn was squaring his Ascendant, which may have been the deciding factor in losing the ultimate prize of that tournament.  At the start of Wimbledon, he has some of those scintillating aspects: Neptune sextile his Neptune (spiritual centredness) and Neptune trine his Pluto (a deep sense of truth), so he should be starting on good form.  By the end of Wombledon, only one of those prevails (Neptune trine Neptune) so it is possible that he may not make the final, but he will be philosophical at the end of the day.

Rafael Nadal

Nadal avoided all obstacles and outshone Novak Djokavich in the final of the French Open a few weeks ago.  At the time he had Jupiter trine his Jupiter (luck and success) but he did also have Uranus square his natal Venus, which could have caused an upset, or may be connected with his private life.  At the start of Wimbledon he has a Mercury return, so will be mentally focused.  At the end of Wimbledon he has Mars sextile his Uranus which is promising, but I would not predict a win on the basis of that alone.  However, he seems to have a good relationship with Uranus, which also supports him doing well.

Andy Murray

Sadly, Andy Murray only reached the semi-finals the French Open this year.  Being born a week apart from Djokovic, he had some of his good transits, plus a trine from the North Node to his Mars, which at least would have made him resolved at the start.  What made the difference was by the middle of the French Open Neptune from his 6th House was square to his Midheaven (Careerpoint) signaling confusion about his direction.  At the end of the French Open he had announced that he had a new coach Amelie Mouresmo, having parted amicably from Yvan Lendl in March.  Her chart shows her to be a strong and disciplined teacher (North Node conjunct Saturn).  That she is in a teacher role to him in this lifetime is clearly shown by an exact trine of his North Node (karma) to her Mercury (teacher/guide/coach).  The start of Wimbledon shows Neptune sextile his Neptune, which is spiritually sound.  At the end, Jupiter squares his Venus, Neptune still sextiles his Neptune, and the Sun sextiles his Ascendant – pleasant and sociable aspects, but not special enough for an outright win.  I may be missing something.

Roger Federer

Roger Federer has not done so well over the last year, which transits at the beginning of Wimbledon last year hinted at.  However, in his personal life he has gained another set of twins, (born on 6 May 2014) and so some of his energy may be a little diverted at this time. – certainly from their charts they look to claim some of his energy! Mars sextiles his Sun at the beginning of Wimbledon, so he will start out with plenty of energy and resolve.  At the end of Wimbledon there are a couple of minor personal congenial transits, but nothing indicating that this will be a special Wimbledon for him.

At this time and based on the above analysis, I would go for Novak Djokovic for the men’s title and Serena Williams for the ladies’ title.  But as the picture changes, and more players emerge, new information may throw up a different verdict.

I will be back in a few days with an update, reviewing other tennis players and emerging figures.
