StarGazer by Magi Helena, Certified Magi Astrologer
Third Quarter 2007


Dear Friends,





 

    
     Summer is here and nature is bursting with life.
......One of the most interesting examples of applied astrology is found in the principles of Biodynamic agriculture, discovered by Rudolf Steiner, the father of Anthroposophy. Biodynamics is organic gardening to the 10th power and goes beyond just using natural fertilization and pest control methods. Bioydynamic agriculture principles seek to create the conditions necessary to ground maximum life energy into plants (which maximizes nutrition and flavor) to assist in healing the Earth.

    Among other techniques, biodynamic gardeners use a sidereal astrological calendar to determine correct planting days for Fruit, Leaf, Flower, or Root plants. I am not yet fully biodynamic in my own garden, but just using the biodynamic calendar, "energy gardening" theories + organic methods seems to yield amazing results in the abundance, life force, flavor and beauty of the plants. Additionally, doing my best to work with the devas and nature spirits in co-creation of the garden has yielded daily experiences of intense love and unexpected miracles!

    I encourage your questions..... : )

    "I had a bad experience with an astrologer last year. What are some red flags I could watch out for in the future?"
    First of all, though every person who acts as a personal consultant of any kind should have learned through formal training and professional experience how delicate a matter this can be, many have not. Stepping into the shoes of mentor/guide/counselor to someone else entails a huge responsibility. (As a client, it's important to realize that even those counselors who are mindful of this aren't always perfect.) From reading your entire story however, it seems that you were in the hands of someone who was not interested in conducting himself in a professional manner or creating a value-for-value exchange with you.

    Some red flags from your story, and other red flags to watch out for in general:

    Look for a professional tone in the counselor's website and correspondence.

    Look for a clear and standardized rate schedule.

    A counselor who will take your money knowing in advance your one central question, and then not answer it in an hour's time is not one to give more money to. (Some questions cannot be answered by an astrologer, but when an unanswerable question is known in advance, you must be told this in advance.)

    A counselor who claims he/she has the power to change your life/fate/bring a lost love to you is suspect.

    Any counselor who claims you are "cursed" and must pay the counselor to remove the curse is suspect.

    A counselor's aim should always be to empower you. A counselor can "be there" for you during difficult times without encouraging dependency.

    A counseling professional should not discourse at length about his sex life.

    ***Use your intuition. If something feels wrong, it probably is. Intuition is a skill that we are all born but that greatly improves with practice.

    Since we counselors are human, we will inevitably make some mistakes and won't connect perfectly with every single client. If a client wants to wait for a perfect counselor he/she will wait in vain, since just being incarnate here means any given person is imperfect. Still, you have a right to expect a counselor who conducts himself/herself honorably and professionally and gives his/her best to you during your session.

    *BTW, the astrologer described by the questioner above was NOT a Magi Astrologer.

     
    Magi Days Third Quarter 2007
    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.  The single simplest and most powerful way anyone can use astrology is to avoid universally bad days for new initiatives.  


    July 4-6 Fairly good days with the Sun aspected by Chiron or Jupiter or both.

    July 11 Could be good for initiating certain types of new business, or for lasting associations

    July 12- 22 The Saturn-Jupiter midpoint square Earth in helio, followed by Saturn quincunx Earth, makes these days to avoid for any important new beginnings

    July 31- Aug. 2- Jupiter trine Sun makes these generally favorable days for new initiatives

    Aug. 10- 13 The Saturn-Chiron midpoint square Sun or Earth makes these very poor days for starting anything new

    Aug. 17- 18 While good for both passionate and money-making new ventures, anything started now could ultimately become a burden

    Aug. 19- 23 Saturn is conjunct Sun, opposite Earth, and/or parallel Sun. Definitely not the days for new beginnings.

    Sept. 11- 12 Could be good days for business initiatives if your own transits agree

    Sept. 17- 25 Yikes! Saturn/Jupiter or Saturn quincunx Earth, and/or Saturn/Chiron parallel then contraparallel Sun... don't start anything or meet anyone new... and...

    Sept. 21 begins a universal Saturn/Chiron contraparallel applying through Oct. 15. This will not be a good time for any new beginnings so avoid or postpone these when you can. More on this in next quarter's StarGazer.

    Quarterly Predictions for each Zodiac Sign for July - September 2007
     
         

    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:  An early focus on domestic matters will shift to a need to feel yourself in the limelight for a good part of this quarter. Then, some hard work and dedication will be called for to wrap up the quarter. By all means let yourself have some fun and give vent to the creative urges coursing through you. Even factoring in plenty of time for lighthearted amusements, you will still be working hard to keep the cash flow coming in. Financial partnerships could continue to be highly profitable as long as you find ways in advance to sidestep potential disputes. Whether you are single or in a committed relationship, romance is highlighted.

    Taurus- Apr 21- May 21:  Hearth and home will matter a great deal to you throughout the quarter. Expect overall positive experiences there, though you will also have some substantial domestic responsibilities. By later in the quarter, you'll be ready to let down your hair and have some fun. Long-term relationships should offer considerable shelter and peace. Avoid giving the appearance of having a chip on your shoulder out in the world- you could be a bit too contentious now. Try as you might, work and career matters may be hard to solidify or get a fix on- by next quarter, expect this to improve.

    Gemini- May 22- Jun 21:  Money matters are quite a focus for you as we kick off the third quarter. Later, you enter an exceptionally communicative phase, even for you. For the most part, you'll know just what sweet words to say, but you could also pop out with things better left unsaid. Your work ethic is strong, and you are very oriented toward service, loyalty, and doing your best. At some point depending on your chart, you will be entering a phase of change in your career- exciting at times, and possibly unsettling at other times. Use this time of change when it starts to its fullest to move your career in desirable directions. By fall, you'll be thinking of nesting in with loved ones.

    Cancer- Jun 22- Jul 23:  You are drawn to innovative ways of looking at the world and to travel and teachers who can open up new vistas for you- the more novel and outside your previous experiences, the better. Friendships may be confrontational now- be patient with proven friends as things will return to a more peaceful way of being with a little time. By mid-quarter, finances will occupy much of your attention. Expect good luck in general, though an economic pinch or two could occur. Domestic matters may be baffling in some way- seek the truth within yourself and from others. If you are single, a very high-quality new person could enter your life. Long-term relationships should be in a loving phase.

    Leo- Jul 24- Aug 23: Strive for clarity in all communications now. You are very visible to others now and for the most part, your sterling character and exceptional charm are what is seen. Continue to avoid any appearance of pomposity or a hunger for control. You are pouring much energy into your career, and could conceivably give so much that you feel somewhat used. Strike a balance and avoid playing the martyr. Committed relationships should find romance revived, single Leos might find dates that create too drama for your taste. A partner's finances could be all over the map for a while, though sudden windfalls are also a possibility.

    Virgo- Aug 24- Sep 23:  At some point this quarter, you will enter a month-long phase of the desire for quiet and some space for yourself. Whatever kind of retreat time you are able to orchestrate will be very soothing and very important to your peace of mind. Travel may not be the best idea, as disruptions or disputes could be possible. This is also a time to follow all the rules of the road and elsewhere to avoid a confrontation with authority. New financial arrangements may not be all they appear to be, so don't involve yourself with anything that isn't solid gold. Meeting a potential future mate is possible for single Virgos. Settled Virgos are probably experiencing significant changes in their relationships and around the house.

    Libra- Sep 24- Oct 23:  This is a time when affiliations in the world mean much to you. Friendships, group associations and working toward the betterment of others are all spotlighted. By late in the quarter, you'll be ready for some rest and time off. Cash flow should be strong, though you could find that despite your generosity, someone feels like they deserve more from you. Your home is important to you and you should feel safe and loved. A highly magnetic aura surrounds you now, and could find yourself attracting others without effort. Single Librans will certainly be making romantic plans, and may find them fulfilled. Do your best to curb restlessness and be sure to fulfill your daily responsibilities.

    Scorpio- Oct 24- Nov 22:  Career will likely be your major focus for much of the quarter. Expect major rewards to come your way, but don't expect these rewards to come without significant effort. A genial and very likeable aura continues to surround you and you are more approachable than usual. Eating carefully can help moderate possible weight gain as Jupiter transits your first house for some time. Long-term relationships need lots of activity to channel disputatious energy, and be sure to sidestep pointless wrangling. Overall, though, the domestic scene should be peaceful- make a plan to get something done there. Single Scorps may meet unusual dates.

    Sagittarius- Nov 23- Dec 22:  Learning and travel can be highly rewarding, though may not be as easy to implement as you would like. Legal matters may end favorably, though not without a hitch or two. Try to work smart, not just furiously and be sure to get some quiet time with familiar friends as an antidote. New friends who cross your path could be highly intriguing but may not make the grade over time. On a basic level, the way you live is in a process of change. Be proactive with this and weed out the old both internally and externally. By all means don't try to cling to anything outmoded.

    Capricorn- Dec 23- Jan 20: Financial matters are highlighted, particularly financial partnerships and common assets. General agreement and profitability is likely, though your partner may hold more control than you might like. In your career, you must keep everything crystal clear and avoid any gray areas or self-delusion. New friends have an excellent chance of being "keepers." Single Caps will likely stay very busy in the social whirl, though may encounter overly assertive types. Someone met while dating could become a business associate. Deep transformations continue within your subconscious mind.

    Aquarius- Jan 21- Feb 19:  Serious relationships are a major focus for much of the quarter, whether you have one, want one, or are avoiding one. Overall this part of your life should be favorable, but the whole topic could feel burdensome at times. New philosophies should be adopted slowly if at all now as you could easily find them to be disappointing in the near future. Your career is in a lucky phase and your dedication inspires others. Even so, cash flow could be uneven, though a wonderful windfall is just as likely as an unexpected loss. If missiles are flying at home, duck, and don't lob any yourself.

    Pisces- Feb 20- Mar 20: Though the quarter may start out playfully, your focus changes to hard work at some point and little will escape your thorough approach. Thankfully, you'll find ways to make even the daily grind pleasurable and satisfying for much of the quarter. Assert yourself conversationally with care as you could seem overly argumentative. Don't sign on to any new financial partnerships now as you are unlikely to have the full story. You want to be uniquely yourself and to experiment with new looks regardless of the opinions of others. Quiet time alone will allow your creativity the greatest room to manifest itself.
     

    Discussion


    The Freedom in Being Wrong

    How much time and energy do we spend trying to BE RIGHT? How much stress does needing to BE RIGHT cause and how many arguments (how many wars)? What if we were comfortable being wrong?

    Ahhh... the human desire to BE RIGHT. We all want to BE RIGHT. What a wonderful feeling..... Righteous. Certain. Powerful. Unfortunately, the pursuit of BEING RIGHT can have a number of negative consequences:

    BEING RIGHT allows us to feel righteous. Righteousness is divisive, judgmental, hierarchal, and the exact opposite of compassion.

    BEING RIGHT can drive a wedge in relationships- especially if both parties need to BE RIGHT. Endless arguments are the result. Dr. Toni Grant once said, "You can be right, or you can be loved."

    BEING RIGHT locks us in to our existing viewpoint and shuts out new awareness and insights. We are stuck and can't learn anything and therefore can't evolve. We can't stand it that anyone else could BE RIGHT and that we could BE WRONG. Our mind is closed.

    BEING RIGHT can do great harm to relationships and it can do great harm to nations.

    So why do we so avoid being wrong? This is a society that wants to BE RIGHT and shames anyone who is in the wrong. Whether the shaming originates from parents, siblings, schoolmates, etc. there is often an open season on anyone in the wrong. We learn early to BE RIGHT- to defend our position no matter what, even if we have to lie.

    This is all a little ironic considering that we are all imperfect and we all make mistakes every day. It is draining and anxiety-producing to spend our time pretending to ourselves and others that we are ALWAYS RIGHT.

    Still, it takes practice to learn to be comfortable being wrong. There's a habitual resistance to being wrong that is hard to avoid. Often there can actually be a sinking feeling of impending shame when we fear we're wrong.

    However, we can learn to move past this and just allow the being wrong when it happens. Of course, we also need to be interacting with people who won't try to shame us when we're wrong. And the freedom that comes when we can just embrace our humanity and be wrong is amazing-- whew! No more defending. No more pointless un-resolvable arguments. No more fear of being found out.

    We can also learn to let others be wrong. Why in the world would we expect other people to never be wrong, never make mistakes?

    Imagine a world where I can be wrong, you can be wrong, anyone can be wrong- without shame. A world where voters could be wrong, leaders could be wrong, and endless misery isn't perpetuated in a futile attempt to BE RIGHT.

    What would it be like if we could all admit our mistakes and actually re-calculate our assessments and actions? What would it be like if the need to BE RIGHT didn't doom so many futures? What would it be like if we could just embrace each other in all our humanity and simply strive to do our best?
