At 3:45 pm PDT, the Oakland Athletics twisted road to a new stadium passed a major check point as a vote by the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission declared that the Howard Terminal site does not need to be exclusive for port use. The 23-2 vote took place despite very challenging transits as Mars at 27 Aries was square the IC of the A’s chart and Pluto near 28 degrees Capricorn is conjunct the A’s IC. At the time of the vote, the Moon in Cancer was at 29 degrees Cancer, conjunct to the A’s Cancer MC.
The IC within a team chart is an indicator of stadiums. The A’s current uncomfortable stadium situation, as ownership threatens to move the team to Las Vegas, is a manifestation of the transit of Pluto conjunct the A’s IC. The MC in a team’s birthchart is an indicator of ownership, and today’s vote with the Moon conjunct the MC was a win for ownership. A square from Mars to the A’s MC-IC axis is a very challenging aspect, but Mars provided the energy to propel the project forward.
