Eight Gold Medals for Michael Phelps

I took a little drive today to pick up our cat and I heard the deejay on the radio say, “Maybe there’s something to this numerology business, because the Olympics started at 8:08 p.m. on 8-8-08, and now Michael Phelps has won eight gold medals.”

An interesting thought. I was going to rush home and work up an analysis on the U.S. swimmer who is being hailed as “the greatest Olympian of all time,” but Claire Courts at AstroRevolution has beaten me to the punch.

Claire is French so perhaps she can have an unbiased view of Phelps, who is a Cancer, the same sign as the U.S. Cancer rules the mother and an AP story I was just reading said that the Olympian’s relationship with his father is strained, but that many women, including his mom, have cheered him on over the years.
