My son Joe asked me to make a prediction for the upcoming fight between Floyd Mayweather, Jr. and Conor McGregor. I’m not one to follow boxing or UFC but I thought it would be a challenge and add some flexibility to my readings.
I decided not to do any research on either fighter before writing this, but Joe did tell me that Mayweather had retired from boxing in 2015 and that McGregor is not a boxer. I am using birth data and the fight date only for this analysis.
I am predicting that Mayweather will win. There are many reasons why that have to do with elements and timing, but you could sum it up by calling it good luck.
The day of the fight is Saturday August 26th, 2017. The fight is scheduled to begin around 9 pm Pacific Time in Las Vegas but Joe tells me they don’t usually start on time. Let’s assume the fight will begin between 8-10 pm which is the Fire Dog hour.
You can see above that there are two Roosters in the chart. Two Roosters together is called a self penalty. Because there are two Roosters in the day it will apply to every one of us on August 26th, regardless of what is in our own natal charts. The penalty has to do with attracting attention, strutting, crowing and cockiness. With the Monkey adding more Metal in the month, and the presence of the Dog in the hour, there is a lot of Metal. To McGregor Metal is his self element; to Mayweather it is his resource. There may be help from the Metal element for both fighters but I still don’t think it will be enough to help McGregor win.
The Earth Monkey month brings Mayweather’s 7 killings energy as this is what the Yang Earth is to the Yang Water. It’s a win at any cost sort of energy. But McGregor has this energy too. For him it is Fire and it is part of his nature. It is present in his natal chart in the Horse (day branch) and in the hour the fight will begin (see day chart above).
Floyd Mayweather, Jr.

Floyd Mayweather, Jr. is a Yang Water person.
The flow of ch’i in the chart is pretty smooth. He has a Fire flow which would mean he can make lots of money. That would also indicate he has many women in his life.
Two of the branches in the chart, Snake and Tiger, are called Stations. The Stations have to do with movement, staying in motion, and changing things up. The Stations, the many Water and Metal combinations in the chart, and the nature of Water itself makes for the type of fighter who seems to easily evade punches. He wins by slipping away. He waits for the right moment to throw his punches and win.
Ren and Ding combine in the chart to enhance his creativity but he’s already a tricky, calculating type of guy. If you think he is not smart you are about to be had.
The year pillar has to do with the physical body and shows Mayweather’s fighting style. He has a lot of different ideas. The Snake also combines with the Rooster (2017) which makes him more of a planner. He would see getting injured in order to succeed as a sort of failure.
Mayweather, Jr. entered his current fate of Earth Dog in 2013. The Earth Dog pillar is called a Fui Kong. McGregor has a Fui Kong pillar too (see below). This is the type of ch’i that would be required for a successful professional athlete. A person with one of these pillars can be an indestructible risk taker, capable of bouncing back from defeat and injury. It’s pretty handy to have this type of ch’i late in his career but it also means he is going to have to work hard.
The year 2018 is an Earth Dog, so it may be that we all have to show some endurance and take some risks next year.

Connor McGregor is a Yang Metal person. Metal is the sign of a fighter for sure.
There is an Earth flow to the chart. Earth is his resource but Earth cannot make Metal stronger. More Metal is what makes Metal stronger.
With the Dragon in his year, the Rooster should be helpful but on the day of the fight it may be a liability due to the Rooster self penalty. McGregor, as a Yang Metal person, will be more vulnerable to this energy than Mayweather, who is a Yang Water person. McGregor is susceptible to making some kind of mistake where he is distracted by something or showing off and takes a blow to the head. He may be talking a better game than he can deliver.
McGregor’s year pillar is Earth Dragon. This is a Fui Kong pillar and will reflect his fighting style because it’s in the year. The energy of Earth is like a piling up/piling on. He likes to grapple, wrestle, knock you down, land on top of you. He probably sees getting hurt as just a normal part of life. With the Earth Dragon in his natal chart and in the year position he is probably physically stronger than Mayweather. Obviously being younger is a plus too.
The power element for McGregor is Fire. If it was May or June or the Snake was present he would have a better chance of winning. Too bad summer is over.
