Smile Chess and Astrology

Get as in-depth as you want. This is just about associating the pieces with likely Signs.

Leo/King
Aquarius/Queen
Rooks/Taurus
Knights/Sagittarius
Bishops/Scorpio
Pawns/Pisces (which, if able to cross the entire board unobtrusively enough, can win back any piece that's already been taken.)
Also, looking at the Charts of great players like Bobby Fischer and Garry Kasparov.

Re: Chess and Astrology

The knight suits Cancer because of the direction that piece moves.

I quite love the Pisces one since illusion can be used to take over the enemy.

I thought this was about CHEESE and astrology. A subject I could really sink my teeth into.

On second thought, pawns COULD be Virgo. Doing their humble jobs, regardless of the risks, and then pulling a fast one when no one's looking.

Bobby Fischer, whom many consider the greatest Chess player ever, had Mars less than 1 degree above his Desc, and Venus on his M.C. in Aries. Mars directly opposing his Ascendant means he was actually seeking victory over himself. He was directly focused on the war-like game, not on his opponent.
