Novak Djokovic Wins French Open, Completes Career Grand Slam

Novak Djokovic has reached the final at Roland Garros four times. In all four attempts, at some point in the match, he was viewed as the favorite. In 2012, it looked like he was on his way to victory in the rainy conditions, but when play was stopped he was unable to continue his dominant form in dryer conditions the next day. In 2014, it looked like he finally had Rafael Nadal‘s number after dominating the first set, but it didn’t last. Last year, Djokovic was a heavy favorite coming in, only to be blasted off the court by Stan Wawrinka.
So what does this mean, in the grand scheme of things? First of all, Djokovic finally has the weight of expectations and the lack of a French Open title off his chest. He is now the eighth man in history to win all four Grand Slams, and only the third (joining Don Budge and Roger Laver) to hold all four at once. The last time a man held all four Slams was 1969, when Rod Laver did it (for a second time in his career). That is rarefied air. It is something that neither Nadal or Roger Federer, often discussed as two of the greatest ever, were able to achieve. It took just over three hours, but Djokovic finally made his history today.

Novak Djokovic’s  birthchart is given by Astro-Databank with an accurate AA rating [1]. His current lunar return places  a Grand Cross on the angles.

The combination Jupiter-Neptune is linked to  ambitious or even unrealistic  projects that have little hope of realization (dreams?). Here Saturn squares Jupiter-Neptune forming a T. In  previous posts [2][3][4] [5]we have shown how this T-square can give rise to the realization of “dream” projects or the end of speculative “bubbles”.  For Novak Djokovic, it turned out to be the fulfillment of a dream.
