What can we learn from the Muhammad Ali astrology? Plenty. His singular, meta-themed life is a brilliant study.
He was a Solar Capricorn with his Sun in Capricorn strengthened by being part of a Grand Earth Trine. The Sun trine to Uranus in Taurus and Neptune in Virgo.
A Big Earth Vibe like this often manifests as physical prowess, fantastic feats of athleticism and material grounding.
But see also the Leo Rising and the chutzpah it took to come out with some of his more brazen maxims. “I am the greatest – I said that before i even knew that I was.”
Muhammad Ali Astrology Factor One: A Grand Earth Trine
Ali had the Moon, Mercury, and Venus in Aquarius. The Moon conjunct Mercury in Aquarius is instinctively an activist. Dissent is second nature to the psyche, but it would have clashed with his more hierarchical and security appreciating Earth vibe.
He was Venus Retrograde and square Saturn. That part of the Muhammad Ali astrology reflects challenges in his relationships with women, both individually and on the collective scale.
Mars and Saturn aligned with the Midheaven are the classic indicator of enduring fame.
In the mid-1960s, he dropped his “slave name” and adopted a new religion. Then he became a conscientious objector against the Vietnam War, just as Uranus and Pluto were crossing his North Node.
