On September 10, 1960, at 8 p.m. in Los Angeles, the Chargers kicked off for the first time as a professional football team. Planets were aligned at that exact time and place, creating a birth chart offering some clues into the team’s future. Astrologically speaking, a birth chart represents a snapshot of the sky at the time and place in which a person—or, for the purposes of this exercise, a fledgling football franchise—is born, conveying fundamental truths about their character. The Chargers’ sun was in Virgo, making them hard-working and self-sacrificing if sometimes bogged down by details. Their rising sign was Aries, making them appear energetic, if sometimes impulsive or hasty to others. Their Mars, the planet of aggression, was in Gemini, meaning they had a tendency to assert themselves, sometimes without deep focus or forethought.
