     Ask the Magi
      "....this question is really bothering me. In
my progressed chart I have Juno trine Saturn - Life Shattering Mistake. It will be like this for about five years. Does this mean that I shouldn't have an affair e.g. cheat on anyone or be the 'other woman', or does it mean that all my love interests are doomed?"
Hi Dear,

    First of all, the stars indicate possibilities, or even likelihoods, (for the unaware) but they do not force anything on us. God has given us FREE WILL to choose our own path. DO NOT WORRY, but do be alert and careful. Juno and Saturn cycles can both indicate poor judgment.

   This does not mean that all your love interests are doomed, just be prudent. You should also be aware that this cycle can have implications for ALL life situations, not just romantic situations. Poor judgment can trip us up in any part of life, if we let it mislead us.

    In any case, I would not advise cheating or being the other woman regardless of a person's transits or progressions. I have counseled people for many years and have seen very few cases of love triangles that don't end in heartbreak for all concerned.

   Remember that there is always more than one progression or transit operating in anyone's life at a given time. You might have good and protective cycles which help to offset this one. You may also have challenging cycles which exacerbate this one. Always factor in ALL cycles at work at a given time.

    Also consider WHEN a cycle is peaking to ascertain its relative strength. A progression peaking in five years is not terribly strong yet. Look to the tightest orbs and and nearest peaks to determine which progressions have the most influence. A progression will develop more strength inside a 3-year time orb, but will be strongest (most noticeable and most influential) near its peak.

    Here is what you can do to protect yourself, and this is good advice for all people during bad judgment cycles.

  • Stick to the tried and true- don't do anything unusual or untested
  • Stick to the safest course- don't take risks or go out on a limb
  • Stick to common sense- if an idea is generally considered to be a bad idea, don't do it
  • Get "reality checks" from trusted, wise friends- see what they think
  • LISTEN TO AND TAKE the good advice you get, don't ignore it

    Bad judgment cycles incline us to delude ourselves. They incline us toward temptations that wouldn't ordinarily tempt us. They incline us toward making mistakes, sometimes BIG mistakes. Bad cycles can make us think a new idea or insight is more true and right than what we've always thought. Beware of any new insights that arrive during bad cycles- especially if they fly in the face of common wisdom- they are very unlikely to be in your best interest.

    One of the worst things about bad cycles is that they can remove our "safety net." A risk that we might get away with during good transits (if we even wanted to take the risk during good cycles) will almost inevitably blow up in our faces during bad cycles. We just don't have the same margin for error during bad cycles.

    Forewarned is forearmed. If we know we are or will be having challenging cycles, we can be extra-careful and prevent bad situations from developing. Also, most people can hunker down and weather any bad cycle if they know when it will be over. You can decide to make good, sensible and careful choices, despite your current stars. Nothing is doomed or fated.

Good stars follow bad stars. Be patient. Pray for Right Guidance. Have faith in yourself and in the Universe. This too shall pass.

Many Blessings and Good Luck!

     Patterns in the Sky October - December 2009  
            Patterns in the Sky describes major planetary patterns in the sky for this quarter. These are NOT intended to be a general list of "Best and Worst Days."  The Magi Society publishes general "Best and Worst Days" for each month. For the current month, go to and click on the "Best and Worst Astrological Days" link at the top center of the page. Members of the Magi Society can see an additional month ahead- one of the benefits of Magi Society membership.       
      Remember that the individual effects of any pattern will be improved by, or worsened by, your personal transits. The last 2-3 days listed in each date range (the peak of the cycle) 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  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. It's not fun to dwell on difficult cycles, but forewarned is forearmed- this can give you a huge advantage long-term.

Main cycles for the Fourth Quarter:

Jupiter-Chiron-Neptune triple Cinderella conjunction
     The triple conjunction of Jupiter-Chiron-Neptune in helio remains within orb as we begin the 4th quarter, though Jupiter is already racing ahead of Neptune and Chiron, and helio being helio, it won't return. In geo, the "Cinderella 3" are all again within orb December 1 - 29.

Sedna cycles end this quarter!
    As touched on in the last few issues of StarGazer, Magi Society research has concluded that the trans-dimensional squares from the planet Sedna to Neptune since 2004 and Chiron since 2008 set the stage for and pulled the trigger on the worldwide financial meltdown. Sedna symbolizes corruption and destruction- it is in fact far worse than Saturn. The good news is that these squares are nearly over, with the last geocentric pass ending this quarter.

    October 18 marks the beginning of the end of Sedna's squares, as Neptune in geo finally moves beyond Sedna's grasp. The Chiron/Sedna square ends November 17. At last, these long, slow, highly destructive cycles will be over!

    The Jupiter/Sedna square in geo is fairly brief and has not been part of the Sedna cycles these last few years, but is applying November 10 through December 2. The Jupiter/Sedna square is of some concern- unlike Saturn which is mastered by Jupiter, Magi research to date inclines us to believe that Sedna can use Jupiter to boost its negativity.

    Much damage has been done during these long and difficult cycles. Realistically, global financial healing won't be instantaneous, but with the stellar factors removed, the healing can begin. THINK POSITIVELY- things can begin to move in the right directions as these cycles pass.

    General advice is to avoid new meetings and new initiatives at least 3 days before and after the peak days of the stressful cycles mentioned above.

     Zodiac Sign Predictions for October - December 2009  
              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 19:
Friendship can be tremendously rewarding this quarter. Opportunities exist for companionship and play, and you also have the ability to gain great satisfaction from helping others as long as you maintain the spirit of altruism. If you focus on the drudgery aspect, tasks will seem especially onerous. Ongoing relationships can be delightful, and long-term plans may transpire. This could be the time to make peace with a former enemy. Avoid domestic quibbling. Deep new learning or insights are possible.

Taurus- Apr 20- May 20:
Even the most routine tasks can be a joy now if you approach them correctly. All work and no play may be the order of the day now, but the advances you are gaining make it all worthwhile. Your spirit of teamwork, your creative ideas and your boundless optimism all contribute to your successes. A bit of caution is still wise with new friends. A focus on a long-term relationship may also come into play for a month or so this quarter. Try not to sweat the small stuff at home.

Gemini- May 21- Jun 21:
Your career continues to be somewhat baffling, though sudden gains are as likely as sudden problems. If you are confused, delay major action until you achieve clarity. New ideas and philosophies can be quite illuminating now, and you could also be an inspiring teacher to others in some capacity. Your creativity is running strongly and you'll find much satisfaction in some kind of musical or artistic pursuit. Long-term partnerships may be in a tug-of-war phase between exhilarating but intense change and feeling safe but stuck.

Cancer- Jun 22- Jul 22:
This can be an extremely enjoyable quarter, with opportunities for fun and creativity. One of these may also lead to a business opportunity, so keep your eyes open. Teamwork in almost any financial area could be highly profitable, as long as you do your due diligence. Be somewhat wary of new philosophies or ideas now- though they could be appealing, you may not be able to discriminate between wisdom and folly for the time. Continue to monitor communications to keep them balanced.

Leo- Jul 23- Aug 22:
This continues to be a time when ongoing relationships are under lucky stars. Deepening commitment, or just plain good times can be expected. Some focus on your home is also likely. Extreme care should be used in any financial partnerships- agreements could be fraught with problems or even duplicity, and power struggles are a strong possibility. If your are feeling inner frustration, vigorous exercise can help you release it constructively.

Virgo- Aug 23- Sep 22:
You have much to give now and serving others can bring much satisfaction and joy. Tread cautiously with friends, as small disagreements could blow up into large ones. A certain amount of uncertainty and restlessness in relationships is a possibility- this is not indicative of any actual problems though, so just ride it out without doing anything foolish. Things will become clearer fairly soon. Try not to be too authoritarian now. Finances are favored.

Libra- Sep 23- Oct 22:
Your are quite charming now, but may have an agenda which is not entirely invisible to others- keep your motives clean. Your patience for routines and minutiae is limited now, so use enough self-discipline to handle the essentials, and postpone what you can. You have much energy to put toward your career, but be careful not to roll right over timid souls or stir up trouble. This is an extremely inspired time for creative or artistic Librans; single Librans just might meet the one they've been waiting for. That subtle lead weight in your psyche will lighten up eventually.

Scorpio- Oct 23- Nov 21:
This could be a stressful time to travel, so it's fortunate that your home life continues to be so favored. If you've been feeling somewhat invisible, that should resolve itself this quarter- you may even feel more exposed than you would like. Friendships continue to be strained in some way. Financial matters remain important and should be on a long upswing resulting from positive changes. Career alliances can be beneficial now. Avoid illusionary wild-goose chases, and if single watch out for new flames who seem too good to be true.

Sagittarius- Nov 23- Dec 21:
The domestic scene is still changing but could seem muddy or confusing for a time. Friendships are favored and can be a wonderful release. A friend could also bring a business opportunity. In career, don't be a steamroller- the key now is patience and a light touch. Harness your current talent for saying (or writing) just what someone wants to hear. It's OK if you need to remain in the background temporarily- you will emerge into the spotlight soon. Financial disputes are a possibility if someone is dissatisfied in some way.

Capricorn- Dec 22- Jan 20: 
You still have the Midas touch, and that doesn't mean everything you touch turns into a muffler. : ) Coupled with financial luck is copious and winning charm in your career- wow! You could, however, be something of a grump or somewhat temperamental in a committed relationship- try to be reasonable. You could also find things coming out of your mouth that you had NO INTENTION of saying, so think before you speak. Your sense of humor, though should be in great form as long as it doesn't get offensive. Enjoy your friends and try to get some relaxation.

Aquarius- Jan 21- Feb 18:
You are still shining and sparkling with your pied-piper entourage following you anywhere. This is a great time to sell yourself and your ideas. BUT--- beware of uncharted financial waters and new money schemes- keep your plans on the straight and narrow or you could be reined-in hard. Career focus is likely to be important now, and travel could be very pleasant. So could taking a class to learn something you've always wanted to know. Don't let boring routines frustrate you- use your bountiful energy to get things done without thinking too much, then move on to something more fun.

Pisces- Feb 19- Mar 20:
People may not know what to make of you now- you are not interested in conformity and don't fit neatly into any pigeonhole. Intense career drive may limit relationships to some degree. If you have children, staying very busy and active should forestall bickering. Try to go somewhere or learn something new. This continues to be a time when the inner world is exceptionally beautiful and satisfying- make sure to give yourself time alone to reap this harvest.
