Using astrology for predictions is a practice that has been around for years – centuries in fact. There are many tools that psychics use to look into the future, astrology being just one them. Can astrology offer you something the other skills and practices cannot? Many people think it does as it offers a unique snapshot for that one person; rarely are two people astrology charts identical.
What is involved in using astrology for predictions?
The planets are not still; stars come and go, the universe lives and breathes, ebbing and flowing and these paths, or transits as they are known, affect us. Some will challenge us in our lives, some transits force us into states of change, as well bringing great joy and sorrow. Visit the website Astropro to know more about astrology and planet position.
Tonight, the Cats face Ole Miss and the most talked about player on the planet right now, Marshall Henderson. Henderson has a checkered past and a…colorful attitude on and off the court. Let’s get to know a little more about the man you’ll be screaming at tonight:
MARSHALL “Mathers” HENDERSON
Birthdate: September 19, 1990
Birthplace: Hurst, TX
Height, weight: 6’2″, 175 lbs.
Astrological Sign: Virgo
Virgo’s symbol is the virgin, which is completely appropriate for Henderson. By nature, Virgos are compassionate and caring, with a secret desire to love and be loved in return. Maybe that’s what Marshall is looking for during these late night trips to the bars?
Utah (2009 – 2010): Henderson started 30 of 31 games, averaged 11.8 points per game and made 65 of 194 three-pointers. He was given All-Mountain West Honorable Mention honors.
Texas Tech (2010 – 2011): Sat out due to transfer. Committed to Pat Knight only to have him fired and replaced with…Billy Gillispie. Shortly thereafter, was arrested a forgery charge, which was eventually dropped (see “Criminal History”). Nevertheless, that was the end of his time in Lubbock.
South Plains Junior College (2011 – 2012): Henderson spent last season at South Plains JC, where his team went undefeated. He averaged 19.6 points per game and won the JUCO National POY award and a JUCO National Title.
Ole Miss (2012 – present): Henderson is currently averaging 19.2 ppg, which leads the SEC. He’s shooting 35.7% from three-point range, and with 207 threes attempted this year, he’s not afraid to jack them up. He is averaging 3.9 threes a game, which also leads the SEC, so brace yourself.
July 13, 2011: Arrested on forgery charges in Forth Worth, Texas
Many in the media have said that Henderson was arrested on felony drug charges while at Texas Tech. That’s technically not true. In 2009 as a high school senior, Henderson used $800 of counterfeit money to buy 59 grams of marijuana in two separate transactions. He was charged with forgery and put on probation, which he violated when he transferred from Utah to Texas Tech. As a result, he spent 25 days in jail and seven weekends of work release last spring.
— Threes, how Henderson likes his baskets and his women. As we said earlier, the most dangerous part about Henderson may not be how many threes he makes, but how many he attempts. Right now, he’s averaging 11 attempts a game, which means that he’ll more than likely prove John Calipari right tonight and attempt 13.
— Henderson has absolutely no fear. He will jack up a three or drive the lane without abandon. As we’ve learned with Archie Goodwin, that can either be awesome or awful. For Henderson, it’s mostly the former.
— Strong communication skills. Marshall isn’t afraid to express himself, either verbally or physically.
— Jersey modeling. What better way to get your team’s name noticed than having it popped in your face?
— Bridging generations. Opposing fans young, old, male, female, black, white all find a reason to either love or hate Marshall. Mostly hate.

Don’t worry, you’re not the only one who’s drawn comparisons between Henderson and Marshall Mathers, aka Eminem. Henderson embraces the comparisons, and often tweets Eminem lyrics:

Coaches on Marshall:
Tennessee coach Cuonzo Martin: “He’s one of those guys I would have liked to play with ’cause I did a little trash talking myself.”
Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy: “He’s talking to himself more than anybody else. For the people who aren’t around him, that might look a little unusual. But we’re used to it. I mean, I used to talk to myself when I played. Actually, I still do talk to myself–usually about Marshall’s shot selection. That makes me mutter under my breath.”
Steve Green, Henderson’s coach at South Plains Junior College: “He’s like the craziest fan at the game. If he was allowed to, he would probably paint his face and come out and play. And anybody that says anything to him, he’d have something to say back. He’ll jaw with you. He’s no different than the guy sitting in the stands rooting hard for his team who has paid his money to come to the game and have a good time.”
Marshall on Marshall:
“Everyone has a little white dude that can shoot 3s.”
“That’s not really me reacting. That’s like my heart and soul coming out of me. All the work I put in to finally be successful on a great team.”
“I don’t like layups. In fact, I hate two pointers.”
Need more reason to hate (or love to hate) Henderson? He’s a Duke fan.
