In Murray's case, it's the blessing of four planets in earthy, practical, meticulous Virgo that helped him hone his talents to a razor-sharp edge.
Murray had that covered at birth, however: He arrived with a conjunction of the Sun and Saturn, an astrological combination that amounts to automatic acceptance as the person in charge -- the honorary principal.
