Article Title: Win or Lose?: Two George Foreman Fights Seen Astrologically
Date Published: 8/1/1997
- by Stephanie  Clement
George Foreman made boxing history by reclaiming the heavyweight title at 45 years of age. The two charts examined here are for his victory over Michael Moorer on November 5, 1994, and his loss of the title on October 30, 1974 to Muhammad Ali. Both fights were knockouts.

After winning the championship from the previously undefeated Joe Frazier with a devastating knockout, Foreman was regarded as invincible. He was supremely confident when he met Muhammad Ali, expecting a usual early knock-out. Instead Ali frustrated him with the "roper-dope" strategy, taking many of Foreman's best punches on his arms while barely avoiding bombs to the head. Eventually foreman became fatigued and Ali set him up for the knockout.

Foreman could not accept the defeat and lost the will to fight. He later lost to Jimmy Ellis and declared an early retirement.

The Foreman persona changed. Often sullen and menacing before, he became an ordained minister and evolved a jovial and paternal exterior. But he could not forget the defeat in the ring that still smoldered within. Long after what should have been his prime, the overweight Foreman began a comeback that culminated in his surprising late K.O. of Michael Moorer. He thus became the oldest may (by five years) to win a professional boxing championship. A gift for self-promotion and showmanship has obscured the power and focus of this act of will.

Even after riches and respect were his, Foreman continued to fight until the championship was again his. At the weigh-in for the Moorer bout, Foreman was quoted as saying, "I might have to break the Sixth Commandment." A brutal man in a brutal sport, it is all the more remarkable that he accomplished the feat while being accepted as a lovable, self-effacing country preacher. Foreman proved himself as master of public relations, matched only by his nemesis Muhammad Ali in the history of the sport.

Using solar arc directions and transits, I have selected only a few pertinent aspects. The differences between the two fights are remarkable. In many cases I have borrowed the exact words from Ebertin's book, Combination of Stellar Influences. The contrast between the two events is found in the precise delineation of combinations, leaving no doubt about the efficacy of accurate interpretation of events.
