Madonna and A-Rod—Did They or Didn’t They?

Let’s take a closer look…

Alex Rodriguez Madonna

Madonna was born on August 16, 1958 in Bay City, Michigan. No time available.

Alex Rodriguez (A-Rod) was born on July 27, 1975 in New York, New York. No time available.

For those of you who have been living under a rock, Madonna is about to turn 50, still a major pop icon and salaciously crude in her live stage performance-push-the-limits blond bombshell married to Brit Guy Ritchie. A-Rod is Alex Rodriguez Yankee third base super star-the highest paid athlete in any sport-he makes $26 Million a year and whose wife Cynthia filed for divorce two days ago. Now let’s see what the stars have to say about ‘deal or no deal’ ‘did they or did they not’ have an affair to remember or to regret?

These two super stars are very interesting because they are both Leos-sexy, sassy, actors and kids at heart-where romance is everything to them-keep it hot and keep it coming. Oh, and by the way, throw in a tablespoon or two of narcissism-it’s all about them no matter what the price they might have to pay and who they might hurt just being self-centered Leos-and you have the makings of tabloid fodder about a lurid affair mixed with sect in the big city (Kabbalah) that won’t stop.

What is fascinating about the duo is that Madonna’s Venus is at 00 degree of Leo and A-Rod’s Sun Sign is at 03 degrees of Leo-it wouldn’t take an intuitive astrologer to know that Venus and the Sun, from one chart to the other, means Love, Love, Love-maybe! A-Rod’s Venus is at 10 degrees of Virgo-he is hard to please, critical and picky with his love life and lovers-and guess who has her Moon at 10 degrees of Virgo? Madonna herself! No matter what else you look at in chart comparisons, these two have come back from the dead to hoochie koochie, twirl on the dance floor, moon and spoon over the Kabbalah’s Zohar.

Say what you will-I haven’t peeked through their keyhole but there is enough here to suspect that if the link is past life and Jewish Mysticism these two may have caused a life-after-life scandal. Of the two of them, Madonna thinks she’s a bigger piece of stuff than does Alex Rodriguez-he has Jupiter in Pisces, Saturn/Moon conjunct in Cancer and the North Node in Scorpio-he has a heightened sensitivity and very live and well feminine shadow side.

My verdict, ladies and gentlemen of the jury, is that under the shadow of the Solar Eclipse New Moon at 9 degrees of Leo this coming August 2, these two castaways from a past life came back on center stage in one another’s life to mirror to all of us how hard it is to live life in the public eye, and, to be true to the psychology of the whole deal, how narcissism and selfishness can get one into a lot of hot water. My gut instinct is that this is all about Kabbalah and all that it promises (in the name of full disclosure I have studied Kabbalah with a Rabbi and I bit, hook, line and sinker-but I don’t wear the red string or drink the water and I stayed true to my faith, Vedanta!) and that the two of the will divorce their partners-but with egos as big as these two have-they may sit together at Passover and scan the Zohar together and be best past-life buds, but lovers, nada-no!

That’s all folk! Now let’s play the waiting game and see how Shakespeare’s admonition, ‘all the world’s a stage…’ plays out with Madonna and A-Rod.

He is AUTHOR OF Clearing for the Millennium, �Signs and Wonders-Understanding the language of God and You're Not Who You Think You Are-A Breakthrough Guide to Discover your Authentic Self will be published by Atria Books, a division of Simon & Schuster in December of this year.

A member of the National Association of Transpersonal Psychology and the American Federation of Astrologers, Gaulden founded the Sedona Intensive, a personal growth and empowerment program, to help clients retrieve their authentic selves and tap into their inner power.

Gaulden coined the term astroanalysis-a combination of Jungian psychology and astrology-to describe how he helps free clients from compulsions, addictions, and unresolved issues, which keep them from living a life of peace and joy.

Albert saw things others didn't and heard what they couldn't from the age of two. When he was five he asked his mother why she seemed more like his dad and his dad more like the mother. As a pre-schooler he was tuned into the rich world of intuition and past lives even though he had no one to shepherd him through these recollections and recalls. At Birmingham-Southern he click connected with the unique psychological work and world of Swiss psychoanalyst, Dr. Carl Jung and his take on the shadow self. Gaulden believes that all-seeing and all-knowing is born within a child and it is the false and mundane world that erases his memory of what is really true. The integration of the divided self, putting one back together through a conscious fusion with his or her shadow is the underpinning of his work in the Sedona Intensive.

Albert studied with renowned astrology Byrd Knapp, Darrell Harris and Katharine de Jersey, as well as took Awareness Classes with Lee Jones at the Spiritualist Church in Los Angeles in the 70's, and attended the Corrado Academy of Perception in 1978 which led to his meeting actor John Travolta using the tools of manifestation learned at the Academy, and selling John El Adobe de Tajiguas, a 35-acre estate that abutted Ronald Reagan's ranch near Gaviota Beach in Southern California.

Gaulden worked in 1986 with international-best selling author of The Celestine Prophecy, James Redfield in Albert's innovative and one-of-a-kind personal empowerment program, the Sedona Intensive, which he founded in 1982. Albert was hired to use his gifts as an astro-intuitive to help cast Redfield's movie of The Celestine Prophecy.

Gaulden travels the world to teach and speak and finds Egypt particularly one of the most intriguing countries in the world. In December he will be returning with a tour group of clients and friends to the Land of the Nile and Pharaohs and the Great Pyramid of Cheops, the Sphinx and other ancient digs and monuments in Upper and Lower Egypt.

His clients include sports figures, actors, royalty, Wall Street executives, men and women and young people from all walks of life who are eager to face those defects of character that keep them from being who they really are. He rigorously maintains the anonymity of his clients.

Additionally, Gaulden is a motivational speaker on such popular themes as "Mr. Right is Usually Mr. Wrong-Falling in Love With Make-Believe", "Take Your Power Back", "The Power of a Great Idea", the Death of Terror and the Rebirth of Bliss, �"Why Relationships Don't Work but How They Can" and many other provocative topics.
