Obviously, none of us wants our marriage to be tragic or for our marriage to result in a heartbreak.
It used to be that astrology could not help us to prevent our marriage from failing. But the recent discoveries of the Magi Society are so promising that we are confident that you can now finally use astrology to protect your marriage from becoming tragic or ending in heartbreak.
We know this is a very bold claim we just made. But we believe we can back up our statement with convincing evidence.
Please read on and see if you agree with us.
First of all, we should define the key terminology we are using.
We regard a marriage as being tragic if at least one of the spouses dies a tragic and untimely death while they were married. An example of such a marriage would be that of John Kennedy, Jr. and Carolyn Bassette.
We regard a marriage as being a heartbreak if the spouses divorce and at least one of them suffers a gut-wrenching heartbreak. An example of a heartbreak marriage would be that of Princess Diana and Prince Charles. Although Diana died in a tragic and untimely manner, she was not married at the time so we would regard her marriage as a heartbreaking one, and her life as a tragic one.
The Magi Society's research has uncovered the astrological signs of tragic and heartbreak marriages; we have learned that the astrological warnings of a tragic marriage are different from those of a heartbreak marriage. On this website, we will be teaching the astrology of both of these types of marriages.
We will begin by teaching the astrology of tragic marriages because they are the worst kind - the reason is that when someone dies in a marriage, that person does not have another chance at happiness.
After completing research on over 60 thousand marriages, we have found that virtually all tragic marriages have a very similar type of Planetary Geometry, which we call HAZARDOUS PLANETARY GEOMETRY.
The PLANETARY GEOMETRY of a chart is any line (or lines), shape, or pattern that is formed when connecting lines are drawn between the planets that are in "meaningful" alignment at the time of the chart.
Hazardous Planetary Geometry is Planetary Geometry where there is a "dominance of Turbulent Angles made by Saturn."
IN A MARRIAGE CHART, TURBULENT ANGLES BY SATURN CAN CREATE HAZARDOUS PLANETARY GEOMETRY.
For thousands of years, and ever since the very birth of astrology, astrologers realized that Saturn was different from any of the other planets primarily because Saturn was associated with problems. For this reason, astrologers viewed Saturn as a MALEFIC.
Then beginning about 1925 and for the next 75 years or so, many astrologers tried to rewrite astrology by pretending that Saturn was not a malefic. Such astrologers are referred to as Saturn Revisionists.
The Saturn Revisionists tell us and try to convince us that transits made by Saturn are good because they think Saturn is the "teacher." They also claim that Saturn aspects are good and we should try to include them when selecting a day to do something important, like getting married.
The Saturn Revisionists are completely wrong about this.
In our third book, we explained that all aspects in the birth chart of a human being are gifts of special talents from God. This includes Saturn aspects.
BUT SATURN IS A PROBLEM EVERYWHERE ELSE.
For example, transits by Saturn are all bad, even the ones made at 120 degrees and zero degrees.
And all Saturn aspects that occur in a Marriage Chart are signs of problems.
Since there are so many angles and planets for Saturn to make an aspect, there is almost always a Saturn Aspect on any given day. But some Saturn Aspects are much worse than others for a marriage.
In a Marriage Chart, the worst Saturn Aspects are ones that Saturn makes to Chiron and the Sun. This is because in a Marriage Chart, the Sun represents the actual marriage itself, and because Chiron rules marriages.
If a marriage takes place on a day when Saturn makes a Turbulent Angle to both the Sun and Chiron, Saturn creates HAZARDOUS PLANETARY GEOMETRY and the marriage can be very troublesome.
Below is an example of one such marriage.
THE TRAGIC MARRIAGE OF ROBERT BLAKE AND BONNIE BAKLEY
When Bonnie Bakley married Robert Blake, Saturn was making a Turbulent Angle to the Sun and to Chiron!
Robert Blake (star of Baretta) married Bonnie Lee Bakley on November 19, 2000. Bonnie Bakley was shot dead on May 4, 2001, not even 6 months after the wedding, and her husband Robert Blake has been arrested and will stand trial for her killing. The tabloids tell us the police have several witnesses willing to testify that Robert Blake tried to hire them to kill Bonnie. Shot and killed by your own husband just six months after being married - talk about tragic!
Remember those three Magical Ingredients that are needed for a Magical Marriage? Bonnie had none of the three.
The chart below is Bonnie's Marriage Chart rendered in the form of a Magi Astrology Chart, which always includes the declinations.
In the above chart, we have drawn connecting lines between all of the planets that match degrees (make 30-degree angles to each other). The two important things to notice are that the Blake Marriage Chart has an opposition of Saturn to Sun and a contra-parallel of Saturn and Chiron (we drew in wide red lines connecting Saturn to the Sun and Chiron). These are very stressful alignments to have in a Marriage Chart because they both form Turbulent Saturn Aspects. We wish to repeat that they are especially tough in a Marriage Chart because Chiron is the ruler of marriages, and the Sun rules the marriage itself.
But if you find both of these aspects in the Marriage Chart of someone you know, please do not worry yourself sick over it. Even though these two Turbulent Saturn Aspects are really tough when they are both in the same Marriage Chart, they do not point to tragedy in and of themselves. Our research only tells us that having both of these Turbulent Saturn alignments in a Marriage Chart is a reliable astrological sign that the marriage has a higher than normal chance of failure, but not death of a spouse.
It seems that Turbulent Alignments by Saturn are more likely than any other alignments to plant a HAZARDOUS SEED into the marriage. Under some conditions, such seeds could give birth to something that ultimately destroys the marriage. For this reason, we view such alignments as being a HAZARDOUS SATURN-SEED.
WE REPEAT - BUT PLEASE DO NOT MISUNDERSTAND US! There are millions of marriages just in the US that took place during Hazardous Saturn-Seeds and no tragedy has or will befall those marriages. What made the Blake marriage so tragic was a combination of many astrological factors. Below is a CAC that clearly shows us one of the other astrological factors that gave us a clearer and stronger astrological sign that the marriage would not fulfill Bonnie's dreams. The black planets represent the position of the planets when Bonnie was born and the red planets represent the positions of the planets when she married Robert Blake.
Have you ever seen such a horrible CAC? Transiting Chiron was making a Turbulent Angle to her Sun on the day she married (it was opposed to her natal Sun). This means she was NOT in her Cinderella Time when she married Robert Blake. She did not marry her soulmate - no kidding.
Bonnie did not have a single Cinderella Transit when she married Robert Blake.
Even worse, Bonnie probably could not have possibly been married on a worse astrological day for her.
Please look at the Saturn opposition Sun the day she married and look at the horrible Turbulent Planetary Geometry formed by combining her natal planets. The Saturn-Sun opposition of the Marriage Chart formed a Double-Double-Double T-Square with Bonnie's natal Double T-Square of Saturn to Jupiter-Pluto conjunction to Mercury. (That is not a misprint - there is a Double-Double-Double T-Square in the CAC. And Saturn is the key planet because it occurs twice in this horrible Combined Planetary Geometry. How often do you see that?)
Transiting Mars and Venus were also forming Turbulent angles to Bonnie's natal Venus, which resulted in another T-Square.
Bonnie Bakley married on the worst possible day for her. We think this contributed to her being shot dead.
The Saturn-Sun opposition on the day Bonnie Bakley married Robert Blake was stressful but it was not the main astrological reason she was murdered. A more significant astrological reason was that the Saturn-Sun opposition was aligned at the worst possible angles to Bonnie's own natal planets.
[We wish to repeat again that if someone is married during a Saturn-Sun opposition and a Heartbreak Clash, they are not in and of themselves signs of big problems. What are more important are the transits and the Combined Planetary Geometry.]
Although the Saturn-Sun opposition and Heartbreak Clash are not in and of themselves horrible, our view is why take a chance? We should simply not marry when Saturn makes Turbulent Angles to important planets. The first step we must all take when we select a date for our wedding is to make absolutely certain that we do not marry on a day when there is HAZARDOUS PLANETARY GEOMETRY. Hazardous Planetary Geometry occurs whenever Saturn is aligned at a Turbulent Angle to the Sun, Jupiter, Neptune, Chiron and Pluto of any day. Saturn to Venus or Mercury are not good either but are not as stressful as the others.
[It is important to emphasize again that we are referring ONLY to Marriage Charts and we are absolutely not referring to any individual person's birth chart. As we explained in our third book, for the birth chart of any person, every aspect is a gift of a special talent, even the ones made by Saturn at a Turbulent Angle.]
Bonnie Bakley's marriage to Robert Blake did not have any of the three ingredients necessary for a Magical Marriage. She married him on a day with horrible Planetary Geometry and she was having horrible transits on that day. The only ingredient we did not discuss is whether they were in love and that is because we think there is no doubt they were not in love - you do not shoot and kill someone you love.
There are three ingredients for a Magical Marriage. Love is the essential ingredient for a Magical Marriage. But the marriage of Blake and Bakley help us see how crucial the other two ingredients are. Their tragic marriage is an example that teaches us that if we want to avoid being in a tragic marriage, we must marry on an ideal astrological day and marry when we have Cinderella Transits.
