Current Newsletter- Third Quarter 2008


StarGazer by Magi Helena, Certified Magi Astrologer
Third Quarter 2008

Dear Friends,

Happy Summertime!

New in this issue:

In this issue of StarGazer, I am debuting a new newsletter section: Patterns in the SkyThis section will discuss significant patterns of planets which unfold each quarter, as well as the influences these patterns are likely to exert. This section will replace the old Magi Days. (Though the parameters between StarGazer Magi Days and the Best & Worst Days published by the Magi Society were different, the variation seemed to create endless confusion for readers....) To check Best & Worst Days for each month published by the Magi Society, click here and then click on "Best and Worst Astrological Days" at the top center of the page. Below, read about the Third Quarter's Patterns in the Sky.

  • Ask the Magi
    "My boyfriend and I have 3 Romantic Super-Linkages and few clashes between our charts but our relationship has been very difficult. Why?"

    In relationship analysis, several factors must be assessed to come up with a clear picture of the relationship and its potential.

    1. Analysis of the CAC (combined alignment chart or synastry chart) between the two people. Here would be seen the nature of the couple's interactions. Soulmate linkages (romantic super-linkages), sexual linkages, captivations, friendship and loyalty linkages, mental affinity, ease or difficulty in communication, and significant clashes would all be noted and assessed.

    2. Analysis of the natal charts of each partner. Each person has their own unique strengths and challenges which they bring into a relationship. Individual needs for freedom, emotional intimacy, mental stimulation, sexual stimulation, lack of dissension, etc. all vary enormously. Additionally, each partner also brings issues from the past which may or may not have percolated into awareness and begun to be healed. Also, each partner's Soul Mission must be factored in.

    3. Analysis of the couple's meeting date and wedding date if applicable. These dates have a large influence on the way each partner perceives the relationship and the experiences they have together. These charts can also be progressed to reveal cycles within the relationship.

    If your relationship is more difficult than would be indicated in the CAC, the answers are likely found in the individual natal charts and/or in the meeting chart. In relationships, we can only be who we are now, and we can only deal with who our partner actually is now. A CAC indicates the nature of the interaction between two people, but if we are dealing with a very troubled or wounded person, their issues cannot help but color our experience of being with them. Likewise, a very poor meeting date will negatively affect our perceptions of the relationship and the things which are likely to happen to the couple.

    One more factor to consider is the age of the partners. Very young people may simply not yet have the maturity on board to handle a relationship responsibly, or be ready to make a commitment.

    A thorough analysis of all these factors would reveal the areas of difficulty in your relationship, and whether or not the difficulties are likely to be temporary or permanent.

    Patterns in the Sky- Third Quarter 2008
       Patterns in the Sky
    replaces the old Magi Days section beginning with this edition of StarGazer.
    Please be aware that the individual effects of Patterns in the Sky will be improved by, or worsened by, your personal transits. The last 2-3 days listed in each date range will be the dates when the pattern is strongest. In the case of difficult cycles, actions which are unavoidable should be taken
    as early in the cycle as possible, as the cycle's negative effects are most detrimental at the cycle's peak. With positive cycles, actions should be taken as close to the peak of the cycle as possible to maximize the cycle's positive influence. The single simplest and most powerful way anyone can use astrology is to avoid universally bad days for new initiatives. I hope you enjoy this new section!

    July 17- 31 An applying Mystic Triangle of Vesta, Ceres and the Saturn-Jupiter Midpoint in helio bespeaks a need to postpone building new business alliances.

    August 10-28 brings a Universal Heartbreak Transit as geocentric Saturn is in an applying contraparallel to Chiron. This is not a good time to initiate anything new in business or pleasure, including meeting new people.

    August 14-16 An applying Grand Cross of Mars, Jupiter, Ceres and Vesta in helio could create grossly inflated goals or expectations. Err strongly on the side of caution and moderation.

    September 14-20 An applying T-Square of Chiron, Pallas, and the Saturn-Jupiter midpoint could lead plans made with family or loved ones to go horribly awry. Avoid making plans now or participating in complex arrangements if possible.

    September 18- October 8 Saturn is applying by quincunx to Chiron, creating another Universal Heartbreak cycle. Avoid this time for new meetings or important new beginnings.

    Quarterly Predictions for each Zodiac Sign for July - September 2008

    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: This could be an excellent time to work on financial planning for the future. Friendships should be especially rewarding, and new friends made now may become lasting allies. Strong desires to enjoy life could be limited in some way this quarter, but do your best to exercise both play and creativity when possible. See if you can harness your high energy for tasks at this time toward working "smart" enough to buy yourself some time off. Summer travel should be possible, and you will likely find that the new vistas explored will eventually lead to inner transformations.

    Taurus- Apr 21- May 21:  You may need to "step up" in some way on the home front- your strength and solidity could make all the difference for someone you care for. Joint ventures could bring lots of profit now, though you are always urged to be prudent and exercise due diligence before investing. Sexy times could be ahead this quarter for both committed and single Taureans, though Bulls in long-term relationships may find some lack of clarity too. In your career, don't base decisions on wishful thinking or give excessively of yourself to the point of burnout. Enjoy new and unexpected acquaintances.

    Gemini- May 22- Jun 21:  The emphasis early this quarter will be on income and you should have a fairly easy time of bringing home the bacon, especially if you stay very disciplined and avoid wasting time on dubious tasks. As the quarter progresses communications become highlighted- and you may need to expend extra effort to keep interchanges flowing smoothly. If your domestic scene gets a bit contentious, try to avoid fanning any flames. Hard work around the home will help defuse any tension. Serious relationships are a boon, though they will still need to continue their evolutionary process.

    Cancer- Jun 22- Jul 23:  Financial limitations may still concern you at the beginning of this quarter, but they should begin to ease up fairly soon. Despite this, you could still see a windfall or two, so keep your spirits up and your eyes open. Think before you speak now- your idea of a "funny" joke might seem far too cutting, or you might otherwise do unintended verbal damage. If single, you must force yourself to be realistic and even skeptical now. Soon, though, a wonderful relationship becomes a real possibility. Breathe life into stale routines by finding ways to streamline them or make them more productive in some way. Plans made with friends should be very satisfying.

    Leo- Jul 24- Aug 23:  At some point in the quarter you will emerge from a rather quiet and private phase into the glare of the spotlight. This much attention can be lots of fun, but bright light can also be unforgiving in the way it points up our shortcomings. Strive to keep things light and easy so you don't come across too overbearing or controlling. If you succeed in this, you'll no doubt be perceived as especially attractive and charming! Romance should be positive and enjoyable whether you are single or attached. You have the capacity to work hard now at money-making, and you are also equipped to make future career plans.

    Virgo- Aug 24- Sep 23:  Your energy should be abundant this quarter- Use it to accomplish great things rather than to permit it to degenerate into squabbling over minutiae. You have the capacity, if you channel yourself wisely, to move mountains with great love and devotion. Long-time relationships get a breath of fresh air and opportunities to re-create themselves in a more perfect form. Expect the occasional surprise and you'll be able to handle those that come up with aplomb. Strive to keep communications clear. Part of the summer may involve a respite of some kind- an opportunity to retreat and regroup. Let this be a welcome break in a busy life- you'll be out in the forefront soon enough.

    Libra- Sep 24- Oct 23:  Don't let yourself stew on a deep level- keep frustrations conscious so they can be processed constructively. In terms of output, you'll do better working outside the box and pioneering new strategies than doing things the same old way. Additionally, you'll then be better able to enjoy your daily tasks instead of considering them impossibly dull and constraining. A blessed time in your domestic environment is either here now or on its way soon- enjoy the relative quiet and peace. Take great care to avoid dubious financial schemes and even honest misunderstandings which could crop up now in the money arena. Be open to making necessary changes in your communication style.

    Scorpio- Oct 24- Nov 22:  Career focus is strong during this quarter, and you have both the passion and the determination to make strides. Whether resulting from this or independent of it, finances should be positive. Enjoy vigorous activities with friends, otherwise you may find yourself spending your time bickering with them. If you find humanity somewhat irritating, be patient and this will pass- don't consider your frustration sufficient justification for doing anything you wouldn't ordinarily do. Keep your words and behavior clear and free from mixed messages. You may be making romantic plans for the future.

    Sagittarius- Nov 23- Dec 22:  Expect the unexpected on the home front, these are simply not predictable times. At the least, you won't be bored. Authority of all kinds continues to be less than palatable- the more you can stay under the speed limit or "fly under the radar" the better. You are able to work both energetically and intelligently now and can plan your time super-efficiently. Poetic or musical expression is highlighted  if you incline in those directions. Try to get away a bit this summer if you can, but be patient if travel is not immediately on the horizon. Try not to be excessively dominant in groups- it's very easy to steamroll others now.

    Capricorn- Dec 23- Jan 20: These days your generosity and idealism are highlighted, with the result that you could be less cautious than usual in the financial sphere. Though you are likely to still be sufficiently pragmatic to avoid some pitfalls, there is a possibility of your good nature being taken advantage of, and some of your hard-earned money taken with it. Use care in any deals now. By all means travel now if you can- an activity-oriented trip with lots of physical exertion would suit your energies far better than quiet R & R. New acquaintances who appear now may or may not prove their worthiness in the long run.

    Aquarius- Jan 21- Feb 19:  Friendships continue their cycle of change- new friends may enter your life, old friendships may end or transform themselves. Whatever happens, this area of your life will likely act as a force for personal evolution as well as for your benefit in general. Committed romantic relationships will probably go through moments of sweetness and moments of limitation during this quarter. Keep your feet on the ground and your vision crystal clear in career as self-deception in this area is a possibility. Planning on the home front is a strong possibility. Financial matters are still likely to be less stable than you might wish.

    Pisces- Feb 20- Mar 20:  Existing partnerships find both tenderness and sex highlighted- if too much bickering is going on, more lovemaking should cure that. Your mind is working in a very detailed and disciplined way now- so be sure to put it to good use. It may be hard to perform your daily tasks without resentment or impediments now- an attitude adjustment may be called for, and this will make things much easier to handle. Your career should be moving in excellent directions. Conformity is just about last on your list now and you probably are enjoying being a bit shocking at times.


    Do You Believe in Astrology?

    Recently I came across an amazing quote in the book Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahansa Yogananda. In it, the young Yogananda says to his guru, Sri Yukteswar, "I don't believe in astrology." Sri Yukteswar's answer to his young disciple was stunning:

    "It is not a question of belief; the scientific attitude one should take on any subject is whether it is true. The law of gravitation worked as efficiently before Newton as after him. The cosmos would be fairly chaotic if its laws could not operate without the sanction of human belief.

    Charlatans have brought the ancient stellar science (of astrology) to its present disrepute. Astrology is too vast, both mathematically and philosophically, to be rightly grasped except by men [sic] of profound understanding. If ignoramuses misread the heavens, and see there a scrawl instead of a script, that is to be expected in this imperfect world. One should not dismiss the wisdom with the 'wise.'

    All parts of creation are linked together and interchange their influences..... Astrology is the study of man's response to planetary stimuli. The stars have no conscious benevolence or animosity; they merely send forth positive and negative radiations.* Of themselves, these do not help or harm humanity, but offer a lawful channel for the outward operation of cause-effect equilibriums that each man [sic] has set into motion in the past."

    Just like the young Yogananda, few intelligent people "believe" in something that they consider to be unproven, and much of the pop astrology put forth by various astrologers could easily be taken as proof that astrology doesn't work.  Even so, one cannot compare the work of the gifted masters in art or music with the results of a class of kindergarteners equipped with finger paints or sets of cymbals.

    Intelligent people are willing to discard preconceived notions and observe for themselves what works. The only way to do this is to pay attention to a particular school of astrology over a period of time- in essence to perform one's own longitudinal study- to discover astrological relevance and accuracy for oneself.

    I believe astrology works. I believe this because I have seen it work again and again over more that 30 years of observation. Still, I discourage "wholesale" belief or turning one's life over to any advisor. Astrological advice is simply one piece of all the data that needs to be considered in any situation. Let your astrologer be as any consultant-- factor in the advice, then take your Free Will-chosen action and note the results. In time, you will learn how heavily to "weight" the astrologer's advice based on its proven accuracy.

    I also believe that Magi Astrology can be given more weight than traditional astrology. I discovered Magi Astrology after 20 years of studying traditional astrology, and before I committed myself to a serious study of Magi Astrology I spent a year going back over 2 decades of saved data to see for myself if Magi Astrology really was more accurate. I concluded that Magi Astrology is a quantum leap above and beyond traditional astrology, and the rest is history....

    Magi Astrology is comprised of statistically proven principles. We could say that we have discovered pieces of the puzzle of the Cosmic Laws described above by Sri Yukteswar. As we continually expand upon our research, new pieces of the puzzle are discovered in the same way that all sciences are or should be continually expanding their knowledge base. Someday we at the Magi Society hope that we will have a complete understanding of these Cosmic Laws. In the meantime, the answers that are available within the current knowledge base of Magi Astrology do offer considerable understanding of "man's response to planetary stimuli," which can be applied to direct benefit in our personal, professional, and financial lives.

    *As a footnote to the quote from Sri Yukteswar above, I agree that while the planets themselves are without conscious benevolence or animosity, I deeply believe in the overall Benevolence of the Universe.
