We have received lots of emails asking why Michael Phelps is so successful.  This is just a quick note to answer that question.


Michael Phelps is by far the most successful Olympic athlete of the 2008 Beijing games,

and perhaps the best competitive swimmer ever.




The answers are always in the stars and you can always find the astrological answer by using the principles of Magi Astrology.


Michael Phelps is another good example of how perfectly Magi Astrology explains anything that is extraordinary.



Michael Phelps Was Born With Perfect Planetary Synchronizations

For Being a Great Competitive Swimmer


Michael Phelps is six foot five and has the perfect body for swimming.  But so do over 100 thousand other men. 


What gives Michael Phelps his greatest edge over any other swimmer are the special blessings he received from the stars when he was born.


Below are Phelps’ Magi Astrology Birth Charts, in both geocentric and Heliocentric dimensions.  The one on the left is geocentric so the one on the right is Heliocentric.  Click on either chart to enlarge it.


Geocentric and Heliocentric Magi Astrology Chart of Michael Phelps (click on image to enlarge on new page):




In our third book, Magi Astrology: The Key to Success in Love and Money, we revealed to the world the Magi Astrology concept of PLANETARY SYNCHRONIZATION.


Planetary Synchronization is the condition that occurs when at least three planets are in the same degree of any of the twelve signs. In Phelps’ geocentric chart, Mercury, Juno, Pluto and Neptune are all “synchronized” and therefore they form a Planetary Synchronization. 


In the same chart, Phelps’ Mars, Jupiter and Uranus are also “synchronized” and form another Planetary Synchronization.


In Phelps’ Heliocentric natal chart, he has a Planetary Synchronization of Jupiter, Chiron, Earth and Ceres.


Every Planetary Synchronization is a sign of a gift from God of a set of special skills and talents given at birth to everyone born during the time of the synchronization.  The more Planetary Synchronizations a birth chart has, the more gifted the person born with them. 


Every Planetary Synchronization forms a pattern, or geometric shape.  A long time ago, the Magi Society discovered that each pattern has a distinct set of meanings and that some patterns are more powerful than others. The Magi Society gave names to all of the important types of synchronized geometric patterns. For example, Phelps’ Heliocentric Planetary Synchronization of Jupiter, Chiron, Earth and Ceres form the Invincible Blue Fortress.





A Fortress is any rectangle where two sides are parallel.  An Invincible Fortress is a Fortress where one side is a trine.


Why is Phelps’ fortress “blue” and invincible? We will explain the significance of the blue to our members during our regularly held Certification Workshops.


But Phelps’ Fortress is invincible not just because one side is a trine but also due to the fact that Jupiter and Chiron are synchronized, and together, Jupiter and Chiron impart Magical potential, and in this case, a form of invincibility.  In other words, the meaning of a Planetary Synchronization depends on both its precise shape, and which planets create the synchronization. Jupiter and Chiron is a Cinderella combination.  In Phelps’ case, Jupiter and Chiron are in trine so they make his Fortress Synchronization as powerful as possible.


Phelps also has a Fortress in his geocentric chart. A Mighty Green Fortress composed of

Mercury, Juno, Pluto and Neptune.  So why is this Fortress “green” and mighty?  Once again, we will explain the significance of the green part to our members during our regularly held Certification Workshops, but the mighty is simple.


A Fortress is a “mighty fortress” when two of its sides form sextiles.  We have not discussed sextiles hardly at all in the past, but under certain conditions, sextiles are very powerful and this is one of them.  Phelps’ Mighty Fortress is also mighty because two financial planets, Pluto and Neptune, form the Fortress pattern.  Pluto is ruler of power, and therefore, it also rules might.


One other point about the Mighty Fortress:


Neptune and Mercury are part of Phelps’ Mighty Fortress.  Since Neptune rules water, and Mercury rules traveling, the Fortress gave Phelps special powers for traveling in water, or swimming.





A Spearhead is any triangle where two sides are equal in length.  By this definition, the yod and Grand Trine are spearheads, and so are some other types of triangles. 


Michael Phelps has a Spearhead comprised of Mars, Jupiter and Uranus.  It is a Super Spearhead because the combination of Jupiter and Uranus can make a Super Aspect (as explained in our first book, Astrology Really Works!). 


Mars makes the point in Phelps’ Spearhead. Mars rules the athlete so Michael’s Super Spearhead is really a Super Athlete Spearhead.





Whenever there are extraordinary talents, you will find extraordinary Planetary Synchronizations.  There are no exceptions to this Magi Astrology principle.


Of course natal aspects are still important. But they are not as significant as Planetary Synchronizations when it comes to what special capabilities a person was born with.


In Phelps’ case, we noted his most important natal aspects on the birth charts shown above.  The natal aspect that is most interesting is his Heliocentric Venus trine Pluto.


In our first book, we pointed out the Venus/Pluto trine, conjunction or parallel (enhancement aspect) is one of the most important ones for great professional athletes.  Every member of the starting lineup for the USA Dream Team basketball team was born with this aspect, including Michael Jordan and Charles Barkley.


A person born with Venus trine Pluto loves (Venus) to compete (Pluto).  Obviously, you cannot be a successful athlete if you do not love to compete. Those that love to compete never give up.


Phelps never gave up in any race – in that 100 meter butterfly Olympic final, he came from behind to win by a mere 1/100th of a second even though he had already set four world records in the Olympics before that race.





The above lesson helps you to understand matters you could not possibly understand without using the principles of Magi Astrology and you can accomplish all this without needing an exact time of birth.


Traditional Astrology could never help us understand any of this. Especially since Traditional Astrology is nearly a total prisoner of the need for an exact time of birth.  One huge problem Traditional Astrology has always been that we almost never know the exact time of birth.


On the other hand, one of the great beauties of Magi Astrology is that it gives us so much knowledge even though we do not have an exact time of birth – Magi Astrology is a “timeless” gift to us and we should always use it in our lives.





If you have been a fan of Traditional Astrology, you must have been totally frustrated many times because you could not obtain an accurate time of birth to use for your Traditional Astrology analysis.


But look at what you can now do with Magi Astrology without a time of birth!


Through the Magical Lens of Magi Astrology, we actually know more about Michael Phelps than we could ever know from Traditional Astrology.  And we did not need an exact time of birth – which is rarely accurate anyway. 


The times of birth on birth certificates are rarely accurate.  After all, the criteria used when doctors or nurses put birth times on birth certificates vary depending on who the doctor or nurse is.


There has never been a uniform definition for “time of birth” among doctors and nurses, most of whom hate astrology.  One nurse may use the time when a baby’s head is visible, another nurse may use the time when the umbilical chord is cut, and still another nurse may simply write down a time the baby is safely delivered and the nurse can leave the delivery room. Or a doctor may just put in a time from memory after he leaves the delivery room.


The exact time of birth found on birth certificates is NOT reliable! 


But Magi Astrology is reliable without exact times of birth.


The techniques and principles of Magi Astrology are revolutionizing astrology and giving all who use Magi Astrology an advantage over everyone else.

(By the way, the techniques Traditional Astrologers use to rectify a chart is a joke because no two Traditional Astrologers ever independently come up with the same rectified time – they are always different.  Test them out and see for yourself.)
