   First Quarter 2010
    In This Issue



Happy New Year!

  Wishing you, your loved ones, and all beings a wonderful, joyous and abundant 2010!

  If you haven't already made New Year's resolutions, it's not too late. It helps to keep goals simple and attainable. You could resolve to do one or more things like the following that would make a difference- 
     1 thing you could do for yourself your relationship
      ...for your kids
      ...for your extended family work
      ...for a friend
      ...for the earth

Or, set goals by category:
     Physical goals, emotional goals, mental goals,
     spiritual goals, financial goals, green goals.

    Intention can be a powerful force, and this is a wonderful time to harness your intention to create more of what you want in 2010.

    2010 should continue the beginnings of economic recovery, though we may still see a few dips in confidence or in fact- see Patterns in the Sky below.

      "When looking at Tiger Woods chart, I don't find any of the tell-tale signs of a wanderer (the uranus pluto or mars or venus aspects) in either chart; any insights to this?"        

Tiger Woods & Elin Nordegren:
4 Heartbreak Clashes + 2 Nuclear Heartbreaks + 2 Nuclear Clashes & more spell disaster

    My apologies if you are tired of hearing about Tiger Woods, but there are extraordinary astrological lessons to be learned from an analysis of Tiger's and Elin's charts. There were many warnings of trouble to be seen in Tiger's natal chart, Tiger and Elin’s CAC, their wedding chart, each of their natal/wedding CAC’s, and Tiger's transits.

Tiger's Natal Chart:
     First of all, I find two sexual aspects here, including the "wanderer" aspect of Uranus trine Mars in helio. However, lots of men have sexual aspects without cheating on their mates, and Tiger did a lot more than just have one affair. Tiger has another sexual aspect which is much more likely to create trouble- a degraded sexual aspect in geo- a Mars-Juno square with the Saturn/Sedna midpoint conjunct Mars and square Juno. In Magi Astrology, degraded aspects are aspects in which an important Saturn midpoint forms an aspect to two other planets forming an aspect, and they have the ability to be especially toxic and destabilizing. Saturn rules bad judgment and deception among other things, and Sedna is the ruler of corruption, immorality, and emotionless sex. This aspect clearly helps to explain Tiger's seemingly-addictive sexual behavior.

Tiger and Elin's CAC:
    There are Romantic Super-Linkages in this CAC which indicate true love, but despite John Lennon's assertion, love is not all we need. Tiger and Elin's relationship is burdened with numerous significant clashes:

 * Tiger's geo Sat/Jup AND Sat/Chi midpoints are both quincunx Elin's Sun and square her Jupiter- a Heartbreak Clash, a Nuclear Heartbreak and a 2 Nuclear Clashes- no wonder a friend of Elin's said the marriage drove Elin crazy!

  * Tiger's geo Saturn is square Elin's Vesta and quincunx her Mercury- Vesta is a ruler of compatibility and Mercury rules communication- both are damaged here.

  * Elin's geo Sat/Chi midpoint is square Tiger's Jupiter- a Nuclear Heartbreak clash.

  * Elin's geo Saturn is opposite Tiger's Vesta- more undermining of compatibility.

  * Elin's geo Sat/Jup and Sat/Chi midpoints are contra-parallel Tiger's Vesta- it would seem that any attempts to get along just make things worse for this couple.

  * Elin's helio Saturn is quincunx Tiger's Vesta and opposite his Mercury- even more powerful incompatibility and inability to communicate.

  * Elin's helio Sat/Jup midpoint is square Tiger's Neptune-  a crazy-making joy-wrecker aspect and shatterer of dreams.

Tiger & Elin's Wedding Chart:
    Tiger and Elin married on a trans-dimensional Heartbreak day, with the Sat/Chi hearbreak midpoint square Chiron in both geo and helio. As a trans-dimensional aspect the Heartbreak is approximately quadrupled in power.

Tiger's Wedding CAC:
     In the CAC of Tiger's natal chart with his wedding chart, there are two Heartbreak clashes- Saturn square Chiron in geo, and Saturn contra-latitude Chiron in helio. The effect of these two clashes is more than doubled in power due to the repeated planets. Though Tiger is the person whose acting-out seems most destructive, he is still no doubt experiencing personal, professional, and financial heartbreak.

Elin's Wedding CAC:
    In this CAC, there are two Saturn-Neptune clashes: Saturn contra-parallel Neptune in geo, and Saturn quincunx Neptune in helio, which are again more than doubled in power, making her marriage joyless, cynicism-producing, and a heavy burden.

Tiger's Crash Transits:
    The day of the car crash, 11/27/2009, is also the day that the public exposure of Tiger's transgressions began. On this day, the transiting Sat/Chi Heartbreak midpoint and transiting Sat/Jup Nuclear midpoint were themselves conjunct and both in an applying conjunction to Tiger's Neptune in geo. The Sat/Chi to Neptune transit was also applying in helio, making it trans-dimensional and approximately quadrupling its power. These transits can ruthlessly crush dreams, impact health, and disrupt many sources of income.

    With Magi Astrology, all of these problems could have been foreseen. Tiger and Elin could have been counseled that a marriage between them was unlikely to be happy. If  they chose to marry anyway, a favorable wedding day could have helped their relationship be the best it could be rather than dealt it what appears to have been an astrological killing blow. Then, Tiger could have been counseled to be extra-careful rather than careless during these difficult transits.

    It is a very real tragedy that all this could have been prevented..... It's a tragedy that Tiger's shadow side has wreaked such destruction on his marriage and his career, a tragedy that Elin's marriage has brought her such heartbreak, and a tragedy that their young children must be surrounded with such profound discord and notoriety.

    I encourage everyone to find compassion for Tiger rather than judgment. Few of us can imagine the pressures that celebrities and their families face. Few of us realize the subconscious pain that causes AND results from such over-the-top acting-out. It's so quick and easy for the rich and famous to indulge in temptation rather than pursue the time- and energy-intensive path of facing personal problems and healing them. Hopefully, the result of all this will be that Tiger can get the help that he needs to learn to live in a more functional way, and Tiger, Elin and their children are able to rebuild their lives and find happiness and peace in the future.

     Patterns in the Sky January - March 2010  
            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 First Quarter:

Sedna cycles over in longitudes, continue a bit in declinations
    As I've mentioned 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. These squares are over(!) but a Sedna/Chiron contraparallel (as we saw in May and July of 2009) will peak this March 17. We'll have one more peak in the 4th quarter of 2010, and a last peak in the first quarter of 2011. As stated above, these peaks may indicate dips in the overall pattern of gradual economic recovery, though without the concurrent longitudinal squares, they should not be as damaging.

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

     Zodiac Sign Predictions for January - March 2010  
              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:
An emphasis on friendship and service to others continues into the first quarter. Mundane tasks may still be frustrating, and household fix-it projects could create more problems than they solve. Try not to nit-pick or squabble with family members. This may be a time when you are inclined toward more conformity than usual, but this won't last forever. You are exceptionally charming and magnetic now, but try to be as clear and upfront as possible as others could suspect you of a hidden agenda.

Taurus- Apr 20- May 20:
You can make great career strides at this time. Maximize this opportunity by working hard to achieve your dreams and consolidate gains. This could be a great time too to start a new job or ask for a raise. In fact, in the outer world it could be difficult to put one foot wrong- the only caveat would be to be sure to think before you speak and avoid cutting remarks. All this striving may make it difficult to relax and play, but the rewards should make any sacrifices worthwhile.

Gemini- May 21- Jun 21:
These are marvelous times for learning new things and opening your mind to new perceptions. Domestic partnerships are under some stress now, and you may feel both the need for change and completely stymied in your attempts to make needed changes, especially around the house. You are likely putting plenty of energy into producing income, but you may only see sporadic rewards. New friends may not be what they appear to be, so some caution is advisable.

Cancer- Jun 22- Jul 22:
Business or financial partnerships could be especially favored now, and your significant other could see an income spike. Take care not to be too pessimistic in giving advice to avoid raining on anyone's parade. Your high energy could be exhilarating, but avoid coming across as too impetuous or contentious. Your career may seem unclear or confusing in some way- be patient and clarity will come in time. New horizons await in some way.

Leo- Jul 23- Aug 22:
Many of the same themes for you continue from last quarter. This is not a time when working in tandem financially is advisable, and patience may be called for if income is limited in some way. Strive for healthy outlets for any resentments you may be holding inside. Committed relationships should continue to thrive and provide much joy. On the home front, you may be in the planning stages for something important.

Virgo- Aug 23- Sep 22:
Don't be afraid to give your all even to small efforts now. You have a way of making even routine tasks a joy and this sets a wonderful example for others. Shifts on the domestic scene appear to continue for the present- these could be many and small, or few and fairly significant. Relationships may also continue to be less predictable, which can be a breath of fresh air if you have the right attitude. Avoid petty squabbles with friends.

Libra- Sep 23- Oct 22:
Enjoy yourself now. This is a splendid time to laugh, play, create, and have fun. There's no need for guilt- it's your turn to partake of the lighter side of life. Do make sure to get the important stuff done though, your self-discipline is weaker than usual and you have little patience for dreary routine. Use your copious career energy to break new ground but set a cooperative rather than a challenging tone to sidestep distracting and useless struggles.

Scorpio- Oct 23- Nov 21:
Now is not the time to fight city hall, so go along and get along. Pleasant times should continue on the domestic scene, and a beautification project of some kind could be in the works. Be honest with yourself about daily tasks. Continue to build bridges and make connections in your career. Relationships with children could be surprising in some way. Impress others with your logic and ability to organize.

Sagittarius- Nov 23- Dec 21:
Communications of all kinds can be very successful as you continue to have a silver tongue and fingertips- it could also be a great time to sell your ideas. In your career, this could feel like a time for paying dues without immediate reward, but don't give up. Personally, not everyone may want to follow your evolutionary lead, so be prepared to live and let live. Make new friends while traveling or attending classes. Be cheerful and cooperative in money matters.

Capricorn- Dec 22- Jan 20: 
Some lack of clarity on the home front could baffle you for a while. Long-term relationships could be in a cycle of uncooperativeness- do your best to get along- this too shall pass. Finances are strongly favored now and this could also be a good time to team up with someone else in investments. Avoid confrontations with authority by following the rules enough not to be singled out. Relationships with siblings or neighbors could be full of surprises.

Aquarius- Jan 21- Feb 18:
Your popularity continues to soar, but ongoing friendships may be evolving or changing in some way. Economic risk of any kind is still to be avoided, along with financial partnerships if possible. Don't rule out an unexpected windfall, though. This could be an excellent time for career strategizing. You have little patience for serving others now so it's better not to volunteer. Keep all communications crystal clear. Friendship within a love relationship is favored.

Pisces- Feb 19- Mar 20:
Your personal growth and spiritual development is likely to be on the fast track now. Journaling could be a way to remember all your insights and revelations. Relationships could seem stuck or relatively unsatisfying, but this is temporary and will pass- be patient. Do not make any investments without doing double due diligence. Your career continues to evolve- let go of anything outmoded to make way for new doors to open. Help a friend in need.
