Nike and Eclipse July 2, 2019

Nike Inc started out as Blue Ribbon Sports in 1964 when Phil Knight ran track and began selling shoes from Japan. He sold the athletic shoes from the trunk of his car.  His track coach was co-founder of the company.

In 1971 the company name was changed to Nike with the N Node of the natal chart  at 10 Cancer.

What is interesting to me is the eclipse yesterday was at 10 Cancer. There was the big ruckus of Nike planning to sell shoes with the alleged original US (“Betsy Ross) flag on the back. It never has been proven or disproven if Ross sewed that flag. Her grandson presented that story in 1870 and said he was told the story by a relative. His grandmother was deceased at the time.

Colin Kaepernick, a bi-racial has-been football player, was unhappy about the flag and has said he feels the American flag is racist. He is spokesperson for Nike. The company is not going to sell those shoes with the flags and recalled those orders shipped to stores.

A Solar Eclipse is when the Sun is hidden by the Moon. Looks like yesterday Nike’s big solar appeal to buys got eclipsed by emotions (the moon reps emotions in a chart).
