"I own a
business and am really stymied about how to use Magi
Astrology. It seems like there is never a good day.
Business can't just come to a standstill. What do you
This is a common question that I hear and it is
easy to understand. Magi Astrology can greatly
increase business success, but lots of people get
tangled in knots when they try to figure out how to
apply it to day-to-day business.
The most important way to use Magi Astrology for business
success is to choose super-powerful days for important new
beginnings. This would include business incorporation, the
formation of LLC's, acquisitions, opening dates, release dates,
the opening of corporate bank accounts, the hiring of key
management personnel, crucial first meetings, signing key
The second most important way to boost your business with
Magi Astrology would be to avoid the very worst days for new
beginnings. This would include all the previous activities
mentioned, as well as first-time phone calls, any first meeting
if possible, employment dates, signing leases, and any other
These first two things are fairly easy to accomplish. You can
hire a Magi Astrologer to choose dates for rare and pivotal activities,
which must be super days in their own right, as well as super
days for you personally.
For worst dates to avoid, you can consult the
Magi Days section of this quarterly newsletter.
and you can also consult the
Society monthly best and worst days list.
Please note that days on the
two lists do not always match up. Not only do we use
slightly different parameters, but their list shows best and
worst days for 14 important activities every single month, and
their picks are RELATIVE to the other days in that month. The
Magi Days I publish are notable days one way or another, but I
don't try to choose a best day for everything every month. Draw
from both lists as feels right to you and ALWAYS factor in your
personal best and worst days based on your own transits.
For my corporate clients, I put together personalized
calendars of best and worst days for months in advance and they
use their calendars as a guideline- doing as much as possible on
the best days, as little as possible on the worst.
I encourage you to use Magi Astrology when you can- research
shows that it can boost a business into the stratosphere. At the
very least, use Magi Astrology to avoid the worst days for
important activities, and you can still reap important benefits
in your business.
Magi Days Fourth 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.
Oct. 10- 15 are days to avoid for any new
beginnings with the Saturn/Chiron contraparallel in geo
reaching its peak. A t-square in helio with Venus,
Neptune, the Sat/Chi midpoint and a major business
planet makes these days to especially avoid for
important business initiatives.
Oct. 18-19 Jupiter on the 18th and both
Jupiter and Pluto on the 19th trine Earth in helio make
these some of the better days in Oct.
Oct. 20-22 Sat/Jup and/or Sat/Chi midpoints to
Sun in geo and/or Earth in helio make these poor days
for any new meetings or enterprises.
Nov. 2-3 I don't care for the Saturn/Vesta/Venus
yod in helio and recommend avoiding new meetings.
Nov. 13-16 Disgusting trans-dimensional
t-squares with Sun or Earth, Juno, Sat/Chi, Neptune, and
a major business planet make these days to absolutely
avoid for anything important in business. Watch those
financial markets, too!
Nov. 20-21 Better days for business and
financial affairs during this lovely yod formed by Earth
and Venus with Jupiter & Pluto at the apex.
Dec. 5-7 Venus and Ceres have joined the fray
and those nasty t-squares from mid-November are now a
helio grand cross. DO NOT natalize in business or
finance- we could even see some financial instability
Dec. 14 Saturn "heads" north again in geo
bringing back the universal Saturn/Chiron contraparallel
in geo through 1/22/2008. This is again a time to avoid
when possible for for new beginnings.
Dec. 21 is fairly good for things that must be
done in Dec.- a triple Sun-Jupiter-Pluto conjunction
with Sun-Jupiter parallel makes an aspected Sun-Jupiter
eclipse which is great. However, Sat/Jup trine Earth and
Saturn contraparallel Chiron in geo aren't great, so
this day, though relatively good, still isn't all we'd

Predictions for each Zodiac Sign for October - December 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:
Routine matters are likely to give you more pleasure
and satisfaction than you might expect during the fourth
quarter. Much of your focus is outward, as you devote
your energies to advancement as well as friendships and
philanthropic pursuits. Travel could be interesting, and
you may find yourself changed by new experiences.
Despite all the hustle and bustle, take some time to
ponder the deeper mysteries of life. At some point
during the quarter, your home life may become stirred up
and less peaceful than usual. This may last a month or
two; patience and avoidance of unproductive spats will
get you through this temporary time.
Taurus- Apr 21- May 21: Vigorous
pursuit of legal tender will occupy you much of the rest
of 2007. This is all good as long as you sidestep any
monetary disputes that crop up. Later in the quarter,
use care in your choice of words as you could be
excessively inflammatory. Relationships will be a focus
of your attention whether you are committed or playing
the field. Either way, expect to be charmed but don't
nurture far-fetched illusions. You still may find that
your home life is fairly weighty- things should lighten
up by early 2008 if not sooner. Some long-awaited career
stabilization is on its way.
Expect partner's finances to be strong.
Gemini- May 22- Jun 21: Stick
to tried-and-true methodology to get things done right-
new innovations might not deliver the results that you
seek in actual practice. Temper any abrasive tendencies
early this quarter- soon you'll turn your copious
energies toward income generation. If you haven't
already done so, soon you'll be entering a phase of
career change which can breathe new life into the stale
corners of your outermost world- just don't expect
things to be predictable.
This should be a sweet and supportive time in long-term
relationships, though you will still see your
partnership in a state of ongoing evolution.
Cancer- Jun 22- Jul 23: Committed
Cancerians most likely are enjoying loving times with
their partner; single Crabs may want to keep their shell
close by and their skepticism intact as all that
glitters is definitely not gold this quarter. This is an
excellent time to renovate the basic tasks and routines
in your life. You have been craving change, and any
changes implemented now are likely to be very positive.
Financial innovations may not seem like a good idea-
avoid a tug-of-war over this issue if possible and be
highly realistic especially concerning the finances of
others. Any anger you've been suppressing may well come
out as the quarter progresses- be appropriate in your
expression of it.
Leo- Jul 24- Aug 23:
Any tendency you've had toward being stuffy or
over-controlling should fade during the fourth quarter.
Be prudent financially- don't squander assets that you
need for security. Dating Leos could meet a person of
real substance this quarter- especially during personal
Cinderella cycles. Leos in long-term partnerships may
enjoy both romance and excitement if they can let go of
preconceptions. If friendships are a little rocky, just
give people a little room and check a possible tendency
toward sharpness on your part. If your home life seems a
bit out-of-focus, time will handle it later this quarter
or early in 2008.
Virgo- Aug 24- Sep 23:
This should be a time of primary focus on home and
family, though you will likely be working fast and
furiously in your career too for at least the first part
of this quarter. Though your domestic life will likely
remain in an evolutionary period for some time, there
should be smooth enough sailing through the fourth
quarter that you can count this as a positive. Strive
for clear communication and full disclosure, as it would
be easy to be misunderstood or to seem deliberately
misleading. You will likely be especially attractive and
charming but avoid pomposity late in the year.
Time-tested methods are best when you want to get things
Libra- Sep 24- Oct 23:
As the quarter progresses, you may find yourself
quite busy at work despite the holiday season.
You are feeling both creative and playful and may be
able to use these energies successfully in a useful way.
Your communications now can be both helpful and
transformative to your audience.
Your home should still be under happy stars.
Whatever investments you are considering should
be held to the most stringent standards and every detail
should be fully investigated. Friends could be a bit
disappointing or at least time with them could be
curtailed; not many new friendships are likely to be
forthcoming this quarter.
Scorpio- Oct 24- Nov 22: Finances
are looking quite promising now- the only real caveat in
that area is the small possibility of a financial
dispute of some kind. Career rewards are still in the
offing and your continued efforts will eventually pay
big dividends. Although seemingly impossible, you are
even more magnetic than usual this quarter. People may
project onto you a great deal, so be sure they are not
reading more into things than they should. At home,
staying grounded is the key- the possibilities of an
over-idealistic attitude and/or sudden changes could
Sagittarius- Nov 23- Dec 22:
You could be quite the wheeler-dealer this
quarter, while still making many more friends than
Career cash flow should be favorable and your ability to
charm employers, clients and customers is strong. You
are both witty and creative now in your thoughts and
communications. Committed relationships could be in an
uneven stage lasting a couple of months- during this
time there is a tendency for real blow ups over trivia
that seem ridiculous in retrospect. Talking things out
with good friends will help. No matter what, in
the privacy of your own thoughts tell yourself the
truth- self-deception is a real possibility now.
Capricorn- Dec 23- Jan 20:
Monetary tugs-of-war are best avoided by careful
planning and clear agreements; even so, any new or
unusual ideas of yours will likely be met with
disinterest or disbelief. New horizons opened up by
either learning or travel will be quite enjoyable. Keep
things up-front with all friends, and scrutinize
potential new friends carefully. You continue to have a
gentle and caring persona that is quite appealing.
Privately or subconsciously, you may be making ambitious
plans. Avoid unimportant disputes with your beloved
later this quarter.
Aquarius- Jan 21- Feb 19:
Your current fanciful and unpredictable
outward persona is welcomed by some but may perplex or
unsettle others- especially your partner. Be patient
with those who just don't get it yet and give them time
to see the light. Career matters could be hard to
understand, or you could be misunderstood by others in
this sphere. Strive for clarity. Business and friendship
may mix with profitable results. Income from a partner
or from secondary sources could be pleasant. High energy
in the realm of creativity, play, and social events is
likely; avoid arguments with children.
Pisces- Feb 20- Mar 20:
Any lingering tensions at home should have dispersed, or
will do so soon, and committed partnerships should be
enjoying sweet times. New insights and "gurus" many not
stand the test of time and you could even end up quite
disillusioned. At times, grinding your way through daily
tasks is the only way. A certain subtle restlessness or
"unquiet" in the back of your mind may require conscious
efforts at centeredness to dispel. This could be a time
of major success for you career-wise- don't hold back
any efforts to take things over the top. Good times with
kindred spirits nourish the Soul.
Sisters and Rivals
Several times recently
I've observed a phenomenon which has often puzzled me in
the past- the way many women can be so intent on sizing
each other up. There seems to be an immediate and
intense need to categorize an unfamiliar woman- to place
her status-wise relative to the self. Watching the play
of thinking and emotions on someone's face as this
process is unfolding- and ultimately observing the final
verdict being reached- or the consternation which
develops if a verdict is difficult to reach- is a very
Women assess each other on
a variety of levels. Part of the area that I live in is
afflicted with creeping high affluence, and so the
sniffing process (dogs are so much more direct- this
really is very primal stuff) which I see there seems to
hinge on the observation of beauty, body, grooming,
youthfulness and the quality of "work" that has been
done, clothing and handbag, jewelry, car, home.
More widely, a woman's status
has been correlated to her career, her degrees, her
income, her husband, her children, her cooking, her
hospitality and creativity as a hostess, her
"godliness", her obedience, her virginity, her adherence
to the values of her community, her philanthropy, or the
spotlessness and sheen of her kitchen floor. No offense
intended, but between Hugh Hefner and Martha Stewart,
not too many women have strong enough internal resources
to feel good about themselves.
Paying more attention to
this whole phenomenon has led me to really ask myself:
Why are so many women threatened by each other? Why
have we been raised to see each other as rivals?
Historically, there has
perhaps been in most societies a survival need to
compete for resources, including the protection and food
provided by a good hunter. That was very real then. I
think we have to ask ourselves-- in this day and age, is
the maintaining of competitive mistrust really a
survival behavior for women now?
Holding oneself away from
meaningful contact with our sister humans is a
particular tragedy for women. To generalize, women seem
to have greater needs for close connection with others
than do many men. For the most part, only another woman
has the interest and patience to dissect "what he/she
said/did/didn't say/didn't do" and determine all
possible meanings and the best course of action.
Women, especially in
childbearing and child-rearing years, also need more
help, support and understanding. Most women raising
young children- especially those living far from their
own families- would practically kill for the network of
grannies, aunties, sisters, cousins, and older girls
that a tribal woman could draw upon for knowledge or
simply another set of loving hands. And no one can
really understand what an all-nighter with a vomiting
child can do to the next day's work performance like
Part of overturning the
old way of operating is making sure we are safe for our
sisters. This means no dirty looks, no cattiness, no
gossiping, no condescension or dismissiveness, no
picking each other apart, no making jokes at another's
expense. No flirting with someone else's date/partner.
None. Live the Golden Rule.
How we choose to raise our daughters
will be the major force in how this behavior carries
forward into the next generation. What we DO that they
observe will carry so much more weight than what we try
to "teach." It's one thing for this behavior to exist in
middle school and something else entirely for it to
continue into the adult world.
Of course, jockeying for
position is not confined just to women among Homo
Sapiens. Among many men, we can see the role that power,
money, university or club affiliations, fast cars/ big
trucks, big biceps, and big weaponry play in determining
status. Humanity always seems to set up hierarchies, and
the feeling of being superior to others fuels many
vastly tragic patterns, such as racism, nationalism, and
religious persecution, to name a few.
To spin this out a little
further... there are genetic ramifications to a species'
choice of values. When highest status is accorded to
warriors- the most competitiive- the
best players of the materialism game- we ultimately as a
species are breeding for ruthlessness and beauty- not
necessarily the traits that allow a species to
spiritually evolve. In some cultures, the highest value
was and is placed on being a scholar, a person of
sterling character, and/or an earth mother, but of
course, scholars, sterling characters, and earth mothers
have had disastrous encounters with warrior types
Perhaps there really is no
solution- or not an immediate one. But maybe, just
maybe, we can begin to turn the tide- to overturn the
hierarchy mentality little by little- to reclaim our
sisterhood. We can begin now to rekindle a sister spirit
among ourselves and reap the many benefits. It's really
not too hard: Look for commonality, not differences.
Most women (really most humans) have similar needs,
hopes and dreams. Don't compare yourself to others. Be
nice. Make a new friend. Smile at someone you've never
met. : )
