After watching an Orlando Magic game recently. I wanted to see a little bit more of Dwight Howard, so I went through some videos of him on different websites. One thing that was being said consistently about him and the knock on him was he isn’t mean enough. So I was compelled to look at his natal chart because I assumed he was either a Mars Pisces, Mars Libra, Mars Taurus, or Mars Cancer.
So in looking at that chart , he does indeed have a Mars in Libra planetary station, only aspecting Pluto by wide orb (this aspect manifests in some of his belligerent behavior which also indicates that Mars is not completely dormant) , not sure of the house placement or if it aspects ascendant, determining his ascendant will take a little study. Point being though, his Mars energy is basically dormant as Libra is opposite of Aries (home of mars) in a Venus sign. He will have to actually “learn” that as it doesn’t come natural and life experience and other factors can in fact change that wiring in him. Also with his Sun conjuncting his Venus his will and ego (sun) is expressed in being friendly and sociable (Venus) . As opposed to combat, war, battle (Mars) or power, control, domination (Pluto).
Time will tell how this plays out.
