In my pursuit to find something entertaining and different to write about, I happened about this idea. I’m going to list the names of the more recent Grand Victors and Grand Victrixs’ as taken from the German Shepherd Dog Club of America’s website to see when they were born and help me write about today’s subject. A few of the names are missing here because they didn’t list the month or date of birth of the dogs. Then also the last couple of years there is no listing for the newest winners. Let’s see which signs produced the dogs and bitches with the top honors.

FIRE – (9) – (6) Grand Victors, (3) Grand Victrix
WATER – (7) – (6) Grand Victors, (1) Grand Victrix
EARTH – (5) – (1) Grand Victors, (4) Grand Victrix
AIR – (9) – (2) Grand Victors, (7) Grand Victrix

So the most signs that produced the most winners for the top honors at recent Nationals have been those signs under the element of “Fire” and “Air.”

The breakdowns of the winning signs are:

Pisces: males – 3, bitches: 1
Sagittarius: males: 4, bitches: 2
Aries: males – 1, bitches – 1
Leo: males – 1, bitches – 0
Cancer: males – 3 males, bitches 0
Libra: males -1, bitches – 3
Taurus: males 1, bitches – 2
Aquarius: males 1, bitches – 3
Gemini: males 0, bitches – 1
Virgo: males 9, bitches – 1
Capricorn: males – 0, bitches – 1

The top sign for a further Grand Victor to be born under then is Sagittarius. The top for a Grand Victrix is either Libra or Aquarius.

So what does all of this prove? If you are leaning more towards having yourself a Grand Victor, then make sure your litters are born to be "Fire" or "Water" signs as those signs seemed to be the most dominate for the top winning males. If on the other hand you would prefer a Grand Victrix time your litters to be born under “Air” signs as more top winning bitches were born under that sign.

So there you have it. Time your litters correctly and you just might produce yourself the next Grand Victor/Victrix. With the National Specialty right around the corner, lets’ see which zodiac sign will have the most influence over the winners this year!

From the book: ALL AROUND THE ZODIAC: This book provides a revealing new look at the astrological signs, from Aries to Pisces. Gain a deeper understanding of how each sign motivates you to grow and evolve in consciousness. How does Aries work with Pisces? What does Gemini share in common with Scorpio? All Around the Zodiac is the only book on the market to explore these sign combinations to such a degree.
Not a Sun-sign guide, but a thorough look at the twelve signs themselves, this book is broken into three parts. Part 1 defines the signs, part 2 analyzes the expression of sixty-six pairs of signs, and part 3 designates the expression of the planets and houses in the signs.

My rating: Planning your litters according to the stars: (1 - 4).....depending upon how much you believe in the astrological signs!
