Bernard Madoff Apr 29, 1938
Update Apr 24, 2009:
Details on Madoff’s business dealings and personality are now surfacing as his former right-hand man, Frank DiPascali, agrees to name names, and former employees bean-spill about Bernie’s odd behaviors which smack of unconscious Virgo/Pisces issues.
Seems the cleanliness freak, Mr. Madoff, is a seeker of the parallel and the perpendicular…in a word, the ‘perfectionism’ of the Virgo archtype. The only natal planet in either Virgo or Pisces in Madoff’s chart is Neptune 18Vig37 Rx, a degree triggered by the Solar Eclipse of Sept 11, 2007 in the 9 New South Series.
This Series is about bringing worries to the surface about loved ones, health, or issues that concern paperwork and/or communications that ‘come home to roost.’ (Brady’s ‘Predictive Astrology.’)
And roost they have for Mr. Madoff, his family, and colleagues as illusive, self-deceptive Neptune unveils Bernie’s secrets.
Original post begins here:
Checking out the planets for April 29, 1938, we see that the Moon began in Aries and entered Taurus around 9 am.
Born during a Balsamic phase, Mr. Madoff was a bit of a prophet which stood him well in his investment company…until the jig was up on Dec 12, 2008 when Madoff was arrested for securities fraud.
Balsamic personalities tend to find themselves coming upon the scene – whether it’s a job or project of some kind – when others have just left. This tendency is echoed by Madoff’s Pre-Natal Eclipse Series (12 North) which has a similar flavor:
opportunities to accept greater responsibilities come suddenly; new commitments arrive due to another’s being unable to carry on; events may be difficult but outcomes are good. (‘Brady’s Predictive Astrology.’)
Since Madoff founded his investment company in 1960, I have no idea how this may figure in his life, I’m just peeking at his natal planets.
The 12N Series last occurred Jan 4, 1992 (14Cap) and will next manifest Jan 15, 2010 (25Cap.)
So he has either Moon in Aries or in Taurus with his Taurean Sun…
Earth/Fire – Sun Tau-Moon Aries: forceful and determined; steadfastly ambitious; powerful and independent; strong desire to go for what you want; great panache; can be quarrelsome and ride roughshod over others.
Images for Integration:
‘A pirate’s chest full of gold is discovered, which adds to the empire of Genghis Khan…An orgy of love on a carpet of bluebells.’
Earth-Earth – Sun Tau-Moon Tau: love of nature; practical and supportive; seeks certainties; good business sense; natural couselor; dictatorial and possessive; unflappable; logical; kind; ability to call a spade a spade; stubbornness and intolerance.
Images for Integration:
‘A successful baker is surrounded by delighted children eating fresh bread rolls…A loving teacher resolves an angry dispute.’ (‘Sun Sign-Moon Sign’ Chas & Suzi Harvey.)
Well, the Sun Tau-Moon Aries word picture is tempting for its mention of chests of gold, yet Madoff’s family members joined him in working in the business, and one assumes he was their mentor, if not teacher.
Then there’s his 55-foot fishing boat moored in Palm Beach, Florida, named ‘Bull’ – so the double Taurus emphasis and the ‘bulls’ of Wall Street he ‘ran with’ might indicate the latter personality blend.
Guess I’ll go for Sun Taurus-Moon Taurus, a sign of greed at its worst, and lover of comfort and luxury.
