Jupiter is the first dominant in Hasim Rahman Jr.’s astral chart. In the following paragraph, we shall indicate the significance of this fact:
In traditional astrology, Jupiter has always been considered as the Great Benefactor, the planet of luck and success such as personal fortune, social prominence, professional prestige, high political position. The Jupiterian bounty is peerless! In psychological terms, this planet has a much vaster significance. As the biggest planet in the solar system, it does preside over the process of personal expansion, interpreted to be fitting into society better and finding an appropriate match between one’s individual ambitions and the aspirations of the group.
This growth is accompanied by a feeling of self-confidence, which, in turn, buoys up an even greater externalization and expansion of the ego – hence the planet’s flattering reputation. But this snowball effect (Jupiter smiles and the world smiles with you), in which social skills magnify confidence and boldness reaps many rewards, betrays the negative side of Jupiter: extreme and excess.
Although grandeur was the characteristic of the “king of the gods,” errors of judgment, poor taste, and sometimes selfishness and pride are also likely to be part of the Jupiterian package. It is important to note that the extension of the ego may be a form of escape; it is tempting to hide behind one’s popularity and social success, which are fairly easy to obtain, rather than be really demanding with oneself. The Jupiterian has a tendency to amplify qualities out of compensation, to avoid seeing weaknesses and flaws. As a result, Hasim Rahman Jr. must be aware of the risk of over-identifying with your social mask, which would cause you to neglect your inner self and deep nature.
The sun is the second dominant in Hasim Rahman Jr.’s astral chart. In the following paragraph, we shall indicate the significance of this fact:
As the heart of the solar system and the gravitational center of the travels of the earth and the other planets, the sun is the primordial light, the source of all warmth and life. From the dawn of humanity, it has been worshipped. It has symbolized the absolute power kings and despots yearn for and emulate. The sun king, the nucleus of society, embodied a principle of cohesion and harmony. Various subordinates—aka planets—revolved around it. In terms of psychological symbolism, the sun corresponds to the center of an individual, the factor that rules your psyche. Its luminous aspects are usually associated with knowledge and consciousness. As a creator of life, it is related to the image of the mother and the influence of motherhood on an individual’s consciousness and ideals. As a result, the sun’s position in a birth chart always indicates the way in which an individual will relate to your goals and ideals, what your ambitions and aspirations might involve.
A person whose chart is strongly “solar” usually identifies very positively with motherhood. Rahman Jr.’s personality is friendly, energetic, and creative, with high ideals and a firm determination to accomplish them. He takes his own superiority and authority over others for granted, and he has a natural ability to command the attention and admiration of an audience. He is a born leader who enjoys being in the limelight and may behave somewhat theatrically or with dramatic exaggeration.
He has definite artistic leanings. The sense of his ideals is evident to him and may lead him to be somewhat self-focused. If ill-directed, his deep aspirations may lead to such faults as egotism, selfishness, or greediness for power.
Mercury is the third dominant in Hasim Rahman Jr.’s astral chart. This fact indicates that Hasim Rahman Jr. is a quick thinker who is able to communicate effectively. Hasim Rahman Jr. is also able to think on his feet and adapt to change easily.
According to Greek myth, Mercury (or Hermes, whose name derives etymologically from the piles of rocks which marked trails and guided travelers) was the messenger of the gods. He carried orders from Olympus to the mortals on Earth. The child of the illegitimate union of Zeus with Maia, Mercury was born “unknown to the immortal gods” and had to win his place among them by trickery, cleverness, and cunning. This is why he became the vagabond deity of travelers and wanderers.
He is the instinctive foe of the settled who see him as an outcast roaming on the outskirts of society: a pariah, a thief, and a swindler. As ruler of the sign of Gemini, the Twins, he symbolizes the brother—the alter-ego who teaches us as much as we teach him and is associated with adolescence, a period of intense intellectual discovery.
Mercury thus symbolizes lively, sparkling wit, mobility in any form, mental exchange, and interaction. As a result, a person strongly ruled by Mercury is quite likely to be clever and skillful.
If Mercury is “afflicted” in one’s chart, their intellectual velocity may sometimes become mere mental hyperactivity.
In any case, these skills are a great resource in the social realm. Hasim Rahman Jr. communicates easily and effectively, orally or in writing. His ability to unite and transmit would be a good resource in diplomatic or commercial endeavors.
The eighth house is an area of the sky which is especially important in Hasim Rahman Jr.’s theme, because it contains several planets, including the one which rules his rising sign. In the following paragraph, we shall explain the general meaning of this fact.
According to tradition, this house is associated with the sign of Scorpio, and thus the themes of death, metamorphosis, and sexuality. It is also related to birth and initiation, and, in more practical terms, inheritances, legacies, and debts. More specifically, the area is related to the idea of partnership resources. It raises such issues as the management of a collective heritage and the administration of assets acquired in association with another person, and the sharing out, psychologically and materially, of these resources in marriage and business partnerships.
As a result, three interdependent but fundamental factors inherent to initiating any mutually beneficial partnership are emphasized: trust, management, and responsibility. Obviously, a partnership devoid of trust is dangerous, if not impossible.
Only when true trust and mutual confidence are established can a cooperative activity yield profit. The next step is managing the profit (or loss) resulting from the cooperative enterprise: sharing it out equally between the partners, or re-investing it in view of making the enterprise more profitable. The responsibility of the manager (and any participant who is a co-manager) is obviously engaged, because it would be unethical for Rahman Jr. to keep any of the wealth generated by the group’s activities for their own personal benefit. They must also be responsible enough not to flee in case of difficulty.
Sexuality, which is an asset or resource of the couple, can be thought of according to the same dynamic. If sexual problems arise, if they are not due to physiological problems, they are always related either to a loss of mutual confidence, to mismanagement of the physical and psychological exchange, or to an insufficient sense of duty on the part of one of the partners.
Due to the significance of this area in Rahman Jr.’s astral chart, they may encounter one of these issues. It will be vital for them to become truly conscious of what is at stake in their partnerships. As a result, they will have to evaluate the wealth they acquire as a result of their relationships and measure the power conferred upon them by their participation in intimate, social, or professional relationships.
The second house is an area of the sky which is especially important in Hasim Rahman Jr.’s theme. In the following paragraph, we shall explain the general meaning of this fact.
