Third Quarter 2006

Dear Friends,

    For students of Magi Astrology, I have recently posted a new lesson: Romantic Super-Linkages in Magi Astrology

     As of 7/10, the Saturn-Chiron clash is officially gone, even for natalizations. (The clash ceased to apply on 6/21.) We won't see another universal Heartbreak Clash until late April, 2007.  Hooray!

   A reminder on dates quoted in StarGazer- dates are quoted for the US. If you are in a part of the world in a far different time zone, calculate your dates accordingly earlier or later as appropriate.

  • Ask the Magi
      "Magi astrology has started to fascinate me and I am trying to find out more information about it. Is the Saturn Chiron heartbreak clash only relevant when transiting Saturn makes an aspect to natal Chiron, or does it also work the other way round?"

        We only feel a heartbreak clash transit in the moment when transiting Saturn is in a clash aspect with natal Chiron. However, it is still important to avoid any significant new beginnings during a Chiron clash transit to natal Saturn. Anything begun during this cycle would have a Saturn-Chiron heartbreak clash in the comparison chart between the date and your chart. Since the linkages and clashes between you and your new beginning represent in essence the harvest, or what you can get from a situation, heartbreak clashes are to be avoided.

         In a natalization, it doesn't matter whether it is the date or the person who contributes the Saturn to the heartbreak clash- it still becomes a heartbreak situation. This difference between interpreting the experiences a transit brings, and creating a natalization chart, is true of any pair of planets.

    Magi Days- Third Quarter 2006
     Using the principles of four-dimensional Magi Astrology, these are noteworthy days- either positive or negative. Be aware that these are general predictions, and may be improved by, or worsened by, your personal transits. Yes, there are lots of negative days and few fabulous ones. This is normal. There's a reason why there aren't an overwhelming number of truly spectacular successes in love or business. Every business isn't a Microsoft or a G.E.; every  

    relationship isn't a fairytale. This is just the way it is and makes sense if you think about it. As if have said before, the single simplest and most powerful way anyone can use astrology is to avoid universally bad days for new initiatives- so these days are pointed out, not to be a doomsayer, but to help everyone keep their lives moving in positive directions.

    7/2-7/3 are Heartbreak days with the Saturn-Chiron midpoint on Sun- don't start anything new.

    7/4-7/8 Are also days to avoid for new beginnings due to Saturn quincunx Earth in helio.

    7/9-7/11 Are much nicer, with the Sun under the influences of Neptune and Venus.

    7/12-7/16 Flirtation, verbal seduction, and plans for amour are definitely a "hot" topic, but meeting a soulmate is unlikely.

    7/27-7/29 Favor love, and possibly could be good days for meeting someone new if you are having Cinderella transits.

    7/31-8/10 are days to lay low if possible and avoid new initiatives due to Saturn-Sun, Saturn-Earth, and Saturn/Chiron-Sun and Earth aspects. 8/5- 8/9 also have a Saturn-Sun eclipse AND a Saturn-Earth clash.

    8/14-8/17 Are potentially good days for new beginnings in love or business if your transits favor these things.

    9/6-9/10 Are days to avoid for starting new things, due to a Saturn-Earth clash.

    9/15- 9/21 are Heartbreak days and also have other yucky midpoints- don't start anything new.

    9/24-9/25 are days with a Nuclear Clash eclipse of Saturn-Jupiter to Sun, 9/26-9/29 the Nuclear Clash becomes trans-dimensional with Saturn-Jupiter opposite Earth. Avoid these day too for anything important.

    Predictions for each Zodiac Sign for July - September 2006

    Quarterly predictions for each Zodiac Sign for July - September 2006: Birthdate ranges shown may vary by a day or so either way. Be aware that these are general predictions, and that a detailed analysis of your personal transits and progressions will always show much more pinpoint accuracy. As in all predictive columns, this is written based on the Solar House system. If you know your Ascendant (Rising Sign) read that section as well as your birth sign. I attempt to write these predictions for all degrees of each sign, however, your own Sun and Ascendant may be anything from 0-30 of a sign. If these predictions seem way off, your Sun or Ascendant may be at the extreme beginning or end of your sign. In that case, check out the predictions for the sign immediately before or after yours and you may find a closer match. (If you are a Pisces, check out Aquarius and Aries, for example.)

    Aries- Mar 21- Apr 20:  Long-term relationships continue to be protected for a least of portion of the third quarter. Duties and responsibilities get lots of your attention and energy, but losing patience with them is a real possibility. Good communication at home helps to mend any fences needing repair. A beautification project may be in process. There is a lot of focus on dating for single Rams, but experiences may be uneven. All Arians are in the spotlight much of this quarter.

    Taurus- Apr 21- May 21:  The career roller-coaster that you've been on for some time should begin the stabilize by year-end. Your domestic scene gets a lot of your attention, though not always for positive reasons. Though real friendship and support is there for you, the possibility for confusion or even deception is present, and the whole home situation can feel very cumbersome. You remain patient and devoted in the service you give others, at least for a time. Committed relationships begin to sail into sheltered waters soon; dating Bulls will be very active.

    Gemini- May 22- Jun 21:  Finances should pick up a bit if they haven't already done so. Communications are a minefield- you could come across as repressive, judgmental, overly aggressive, downright deceptive, or the most charming, likeable person around. Take great care to speak and write with clarity, and correct any misunderstandings as soon as you detect them. Ongoing relationships continue to serve as a catalyst for your personal evolution if you let them. If you resist inner change, they'll just seem unstable and draining. Despite all this, plans could be taking shape. Single Twins could hit the dating jackpot.

    Cancer- Jun 22- Jul 23:  You are charming and well-accepted this quarter, and you're looking your best. Financial situations require great care- the potential for success is certainly there, but so is the potential for lean times, angry misunderstandings, or being deceived. Business partnerships may become unstable. Use your ability to plan to think through needed changes in your daily life and implement them. Domestically, peace and plenty should continue for the time. Committed relationships remain strong, and relationships moving in that direction may solidify.

    Leo- Jul 24- Aug 23:  Though usually so congenial, you could become a party-pooper, demanding, or aggressive this quarter. You may have to work to stay in everyone's good graces. Committed partnerships should actually be mellow, and the tendency toward upheaval should be on its way out. For single Lions, dating can be exciting, but could also be overwhelming or draining. You continue to be devoted to your responsibilities, but it's important not to over-commit or overdo. Private creative efforts will be rewarding, and retreat time will be a great pleasure.

    Virgo- Aug 24- Sep 23:  Unexpressed anger won't stay hidden for long, so it's definitely better to find constructive ways to release it. Financially, things should be continuing on a positive tack. Relationships may continue to surprise you, and much of what you are accustomed to counting on could be in a state of flux for now. Use this energy to make positive changes; don't let it drive you into making negative ones. Sidestep any tendency toward self-criticism or holding yourself to impossible standards. If you're feeling somewhat invisible, go ahead and enjoy the lack of scrutiny- you'll be back out in front soon.

    Libra- Sep 24- Oct 23:  Single Librans are apt to be Pollyannas, and you may only see what you want to see. In any case, dating will continue to be full of surprises. Friendships are really mixed- they are an important focus and can be wonderful, but can also be restrictive, adversarial, or confusing. Career-wise, you should be enjoying yourself. Don't bludgeon anyone with your words- speak softy if you want to be heard. Your kindness continues to be visible, and you continue to feel devoted in your home life. Make use of your creative inspirations now.

    Scorpio- Oct 24- Nov 22:  Travel and learning new things are especially rewarding this quarter. Career is all over the map- you'll be mostly focused and working hard, but do take care in your choice of allies, and do stay in your own integrity no matter what. Your home life should stabilize in the foreseeable future, and a period of tranquility should be on its way. Money situations continue to be somewhat demanding and may require a lot of attention. Friendships could prove contentious for a while.

    Sagittarius- Nov 23- Dec 22:  You are focused on new horizons, but new knowledge and experiences look like they will come with some kind of price tag. Vigorous pursuit of your career goals is possible, but don't stir up any hornet's nests or make any enemies- avoid mowing down people around you with the force of your personality. Your home may be going through growing pains. Friends are supportive, and your partner's income should be nicely flowing. You are generous now and want to use your resources to help others.

    Capricorn- Dec 23- Jan 20:  Financial matters may be troublesome enough to warrant a great deal of your attention- use the utmost care in any monetary dealings now. Your career should be stable and sheltered, so that is the good news. Your kindness and caring are right out front and might even make some people try to take advantage of your goodwill. Long-term relationships will have a period of sweetness and romance. Plans are brewing, and will move into the forefront soon. Avoid encounters with the law.

    Aquarius- Jan 21- Feb 19:  Daily routines take on a pleasing rhythm and you'll find creative solutions when necessary. Relationships can be challenging as things may seem unclear and/or very, very weighty. These themes will pass in time, so patience is the key. Your career is moving into a phase of solid growth and development, and things should run generally smoothly in that arena. You still may be surprising those around you with the personal changes you are making. Financial disputes are a possibility so do what you can to sidestep any potential pitfalls.

    Pisces- Feb 20- Mar 20: This quarter could feel like it's all work, but never fear, you will definitely be able to find time and energy to play and be creative. Problems which crop up in your daily life may seem to take their own sweet time to be solved- part of the problem may be difficulty in putting your finger on exactly what the problem really is. Committed relationships may go through a period of friction- be patient and know that it's just a cycle and isn't indicative of the relationship as a whole. You may feel that change is brewing somewhere just beneath the surface.


    Jupiter & Saturn Transits and Life Choices

        Though transits from all planets impact us to some degree, transits from the slower-moving planets impact us most. A Venus or Mars transit might be felt for a few days or a week, but outer-planet transits can last a year or more.

         Jupiter transits and Saturn transits can be the most polarized, and can lead to beliefs, actions, and choices which will profoundly affect our future lives. Understanding the nature of each type of transit can help us know when to act, when to wait, when to recalculate our attitudes, and when to reserve judgment.

         Jupiter transits represent times when we are inclined naturally toward the "high road"- when our inner promptings steer us toward universal love, kindness, justice, compassion and equality. Saturn transits, in stark contrast, represent times when we are most apt to take the "low road," falling into negative thought patterns and destructive actions.

         One way to look at Jupiter transits is that they are times when we can hear the Angels, that we are open at these times to Angelic or Higher Guidance. We could say that the Angels lead us into choosing the positive because their mission is to lead us all to the Light of God. But whether we consider our wisdom during Jupiter times as coming from an enlightened outer source, or just as constructive inner intuition, nevertheless, we are inclined during Jupiter cycles toward the direction of the greatest good for ourselves and all concerned.

         During Saturn transits, we are inclined very differently. Some believe that at these times we are receiving "lower" guidance- that there are external energies at the opposite pole from the Angels which lead us to choose negatively and feed on the chaos and misery that result. Or, we can simply believe that our own intuition is somehow leading us in directions which in the long run turn out to be negative. Ironically, when we are under the influence of Saturn cycles, we are convinced that we are RIGHT! We think we see clearly, perhaps for the first time. We do about-faces and walk away from what is actually best for us, and the things which are worst for us become irresistible. We become bound and determined to do just what will ultimately do the most damage.

         One of the saddest things about Saturn cycles is that they disrupt our spiritual support system. It is as if we can't find God precisely when we need God the most. We lose faith in ourselves and in the Universe. This is understandable, since Saturn cycles block our ability to hear the Angels. During these times, we can feel bereft, alone, deserted by God, and even angry with God.

         Because of all this, Magi Astrology urges us to carefully consider our transits and progressions, and the general energies of the day, when any major decision is before us. Jupiter cycles incline us to choose things which are good for us- the choices we make turn out well- they are constructive and positive when viewed in retrospect. Saturn cycles incline us to choose things which are bad for us- these are the choices which we come to regret- things which turn out badly, or even disastrously.

         Each major choice we make is crucial. The choice we make at each fork in our road leads to our future, and determines which forks and which choices we will be presented with from then on. Cumulatively, each choice sets up an energy wave, and the more positive the wave of energy we are riding, the more likely we are to make positive choices again in the future. This helps to explain why some people seem to succeed time and time again, while others seem to spiral downward and downward.

         Beyond setting up our own futures, each choice we make also impacts the people around us, and on a broader, quantum scale, the entire Universe. Universally, the more that positive waves are set into motion, the higher the energy and the faster the evolution of all.

         The best way to insure positive outcomes is to make the most of the wisdom that comes to us during Jupiter transits- write it down, act on it, initiate and natalize new beginnings. During Saturn cycles, it is best to sit tight, make no decisions, make no judgments, make no changes of importance, avoid meeting anyone or starting anything new, and re-think the ideas we had during the Saturn time after the Saturn cycle is past. When the tide is carrying us toward joy, love and prosperity, we paddle. When the tide is against us, we wait. It's a Universal rhythm, and we can use Magi Astrology to become attuned with it.
