The Astrology of Orlando Cruz is revealing. He became the world’s first openly gay professional boxer in early October. Fittingly, for a Cancer Sun, he came out at the behest of his mother, who said it would make him happier. (Cancer males can be more enmeshed with their mother’s than some).
AND how cool is this? He was cheered when he came out for his first fight after coming out, and he won.
The crowd cheered Cruz when he entered the ring, and the Puerto Rican boxer told the media after the fight that he was grateful for the support.
“I was very happy that they respect me,” he said. “That’s what I want – them to see me as a boxer, as an athlete and as a man in every sense of the word.”
It’s also fascinating that he made his official “I am gay” announcement the day that Pluto was opposing his Cancerian Sun.
This guy is, remember, not a dancer, not an actor but a young man functioning in a fiercely macho world. It is a big deal. Pluto-Sun transits are like Forced Phoenixing: you have to be yourself, speed-ditching all the aspects of your life that feel like a lie.
Sure you lose some people and things over it, but you regain access to Source Vibe. Cruz has natal Mars trine Pluto so Plutonic regeneration would feel more comfortable to him than congealing in a lie. And he has Saturn square Sun for Anti-Fragility and stamina.
