A Tapestry Blog of Astrology, Politics, and Social Concerns

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. 

Any ideas?

  1. Thanks, Jill.

    Yes, Moon is any sign describes the ‘reigning need’ yet the more factors we have, the fuller the picture, agreed…Sun-Moon blends give very basic insights into personality which are then colored by other factors, of course. As they would be.

    i consider Sun-Moon blends to be more informative than using only a Sun sign, and it’s useful info when birth time isn’t known (also when it is -> my own blend = Cap-Pisces and i can attest that it suits me to a T; many factors in my natal chart support the Cap-Pis combo.)

    Thanks, Donna, your comments are much appreciated…and your stellar intuition says to stay out of crowds being shoved so i assume you will not be in attendance in DC on Jan 20, 2009…good call – i’m with ya on that one!

    Wishing a Happy New Year to All! jude

  2. Hi again. on Madoff, your observations link up with my eyes and ears.
    This gent signals “I’ll get mine! The world owes me, and I’m smarter than those greedy folks I’ve set up.”

    That old phrase, “if it’s too good to be true, it probably is,” seems to be relevant.

    But, I’ll bet a lot of regular folks who have lost money in this last round of dips in the stock market aren’t going to feel bad for the rich folks who got scammed by Madoff.

    What I wonder about is all this talk about the government having to pay back the rich who have lost money due to him. Now that could start a revolution.

    I suspect that it is time for Americans to step aside from the battle of who did what to whom and start seeing their own reality as the creature of their own making. I’m going there. I’ll send back notes in a bottle on how it is in the land of my own making. I don’t want to go where the crowd is being shoved. But I do want to continue to read your words of wisdom.

    Happy New Year!
