On Nov. 4, 2021, Giants catcher Buster Posey announced his retirement as the New Moon in Scorpio was exactly conjunct the Giants’ natal Moon. As the Moon rules catchers and fans, there could not be a more poetic astrological moment for an event that would greatly affect the Giants catcher and the Giants fans. Among the fans, Posey has been the most popular Giants for many years.
This Scorpio New Moon is directly opposed by Uranus at 13 degrees Taurus and squared by Saturn at 7 degrees Aquarius. Uranus is a disruptive force and often leads to drastic change and uprooting. Posey has been the anchor of the franchise for many years, both among the players and the fans, yet Uranus can behave like a hurricane and knock down any solid foundation or relationship. Uranus is also squared by Saturn at 7 degrees Aquarius. Saturn brought to consciousness the hard reality that even baseball players age. A favorite athlete such as Buster Posey must eventually retire.
This is Buster Posey’s birthchart cast for noon in San Francisco, although his place of birth is Leesburg, Ga and his time of birth is not known by me. His natal Pluto of 9 degrees Scorpio is conjunct the Giants Moon, indicating his deep soulful connection with the Giants franchise.
