Coach Vermeil is no stranger to Jupiter's benefits, for he was born with Jupiter strong in the sign of its rulership, Sagittarius, and in a harmonious trine aspect (120 degrees) to his Leo Ascendant.
He has succeeded in football at every level, as a player, high school and college coach, and lead the Philadelphia Eagles to the Super Bowl in 1980. However, his tenure with the Rams, since he was hired in January of 1997, has brought him little joy.
Jupiter changed all that this August, for as it advanced into the first degrees of the sign Taurus, it began to interact with (conjunct) Vermeil's natal Moon and Uranus.
Because Vermeil was born at the Full Moon (with the Moon opposite the Sun in the zodiac), Jupiter has also been opposing Vermeil's Sun in Scorpio, directly influencing these most personal parts of his chart.
Now Jupiter is backing up (in retrograde motion) out of Taurus and returning to the sign Aries. Vermeil's best days may have passed, but he has made the most of this time to get the Rams off to a very strong start.
