What some wise men, seers and other well known names have said about Astrology:
Benjamin Franklin wrote about astrology, saying: “Oh the wonderful knowledge to be found in the stars. Even the smallest things are written there..if you had but skill to read.”
JP Morgan, America’s first billionaire, said : “Millionaires don’t use astrology, billionaires do.”
Is Your Destiny Written in the Stars?
From an article:
If your destiny is written in the stars, your astrological natal, or birth, chart is the map of that destiny. Your birth chart outlines all of your potential, your goals, the gifts you came with or will develop in this life, and the lessons that you most desire to learn. That natal wheel, divided into twelve houses representing the twelve zodiac signs, displays all that makes each person unique and describes the pattern of each life. From the most spiritual or philosophical dimensions to the most practical of questions, the birth chart can illuminate all of your questions about yourself, your path, and your life choices.
Most people are familiar with Sun signs, or the zodiac sign that the Sun stands in on your birthday. The Sun sign represents how you see yourself and how your ego would like you to be seen in the world. It is a large part of the persona that others see when they meet you. You present yourself in a particular way, colored and influenced by your Sun sign. Your public persona is certainly shaped by the Sun sign, but there is much, much more to your story. The Sun sign is just the beginning.
The Sun, along with all of the other planets and the Moon, occupy a zodiac sign, and they also occupy a House in the birth chart. The birth chart is a wheel, 360 degrees, divided into twelve equal houses/signs of 30 degrees.
The birth chart is erected based on your exact birth time and location, because the degree and sign on the horizon at your birth determines all the houses and signs for your entire natal chart. The sign on the horizon at your birth, placed as the cusp of the 1st house in your chart, is called the “Rising sign.” The Rising sign is the missing piece of your personality paired with the Sun sign. It is the outward expression of the face you show the world. Just as the Sun sign reveals how you would most desire to be seen, the Rising sign reveals what others most likely see. Your public persona is a blending of the inner Sun sign and the outward Rising sign.
All the other planets and the Moon have signs and houses, and represent different areas of life, from how you communicate and your education, to your work/career, your health, and your relationships with others, including friendships, romantic relationships, and family. The location of each planet in its sign and house make up your natal chart, the complete and complex expression of your personality and your life’s goals and ambitions.
Many people come to astrology with questions about their life purpose and how best to make major decisions on their path through life. The natal chart is a beautiful place to start answering those questions. Every person is born with a unique destiny. Astrology is one way to give us detailed knowledge about our life’s plan, so we can take what we are born with and make our own destiny, thus fulfilling our higher purpose.
VW Ricardo C. Marquez, born August 28, 1960.
During the Testimonial Dinner hosted by MD NCRG at The Bellevue Hotel in honor of VW Ricardo C. Marquez, Kagitingan Lodge No. 286, as the new Police Director, Chief PNP, he said on his speech that maybe the stars had contribution to his destiny.
Pagkakaisa Lodge No. 282 Members with Chief PNP during the Testimonial Dinner at The Belleview Hotel.
This led me to become interested to search the auspicious stars and planets on his natal chart that considerably made him top over the other prospective officers. He bested two candidates more senior than him and a senior officer who has personal ties with the President as member of the PSG during the administration of the President’s mother. He has always been a top-of-mind contender for the PNP, but he wasn’t the lead, making him the last-minute lead contender before he was interviewed by the President.
However, DILG Mar Roxas, speaking to reporters, all praises for VW Ric Marquez.
He graduated salutatorian at the Tulay Elementary School in Maragondon, Cavite and was the valedictorian of his batch from the Bucal Barangay High School. He ranked #16 in his PMA class. For his graduate studies, VW Ric Marquez earned a Masters Degree in Management at the Philippine Christian Academy.
As read by VW John Llamas of his biographical sketch, he was born August 28, and from the internet of the birth year, It shows he’ll be retiring 2016 at the age of 56 which makes him born in the year 1960. From the Chinese astrology, he was born in the year of the Rat the same sign as Pres Pnoy.
Following is the birth chart of VW Ric Marquez generated from one of the western astrology sites.
Sun is in 04 Degrees Virgo.
Extremely careful and cautious by nature, you value neatness and order above all else. You rigorously practice very high standards of living and conduct and you demand the same of everyone with whom you come into contact. At times, you are so supercritical that you are merely nit-picky. You are very good at practical skills and quite handy with tools of all kinds. You are also greatly concerned with hygiene, cleanliness and personal health problems. Very likely your health is much better than you think it is — don’t worry so much! Extremely methodical and analytical, you are a perfectionist — this makes you the perfect person to carry out highly detailed, precise operations. But, at times, you pay so much attention to details that you lose sight of the larger issues.
Moon is in 13 Degrees Scorpio.
Your feelings are very intense, never superficial. You tend to be either very angry or very sad or completely and totally happy. Your moods are deep, extreme and not always completely understood by yourself or by those with whom you have to deal. Emotionally, you tend to prefer to live at the cutting edge of life, pushing your reactions to the ultimate extremes, even if the results are dangerous or upsetting. You are easily jealous and very suspicious — you require a great deal of emotional reassurance. A good detective, you are very curious about deep and mysterious things, especially human nature and motivations. Be careful not to be ruthless, tactless or too overly frank or you will meet with much resistance from others.
Mercury is in 02 Degrees Virgo.
Very thorough and efficient, you pay attention to the minor but important details of any project. You are a careful thinker who can learn complicated, intricate techniques. You are attracted to practical, useful skills and are probably good at working with your hands. You are very critical of yourself and others, sometimes too much so, and you get the reputation of being a nag or of being nit-picky. Your first reaction to any situation is to try to organize, classify and analyze everything!
Venus is in 23 Degrees Virgo.
You express your love and affection through selfless service to people or causes. You have a tendency to underestimate yourself and doubt your self-worth. This is very demeaning and should be avoided — learn to love yourself as well as you do others. Your standards of perfection are very high — you are attracted to relationships based on duty and responsibility. You are supercritical of yourself and others and, at times, prefer to be alone rather than deal with any imperfections in yourself or in those with whom you might relate.
Mars is in 16 Degrees Gemini.
Your energies get turned on quickly whenever anything interests you. But you have a very short attention span and it is difficult for you to complete tasks because something else more interesting always seems to be beckoning. You love to debate and argue, usually in a spirit of friendly disagreement. But watch out that you do not get too overly aggressive or antagonistic or others will be quick to take offense where none may have really been intended. You need to be in constant physical motion — sports or daily exercise is a must for you if you are to feel fit and healthy.
Jupiter is in 23 Degrees Sagittarius.
You have a very strong sense of ethics and morality. You are widely read and may also be widely traveled because you are sincerely interested in expanding your knowledge of the world about you. At times, you have an annoying tendency to be self-righteous and preachy about your belief system. You are usually quite idealistic and you demand the right to be able to explore the entire world of experiences yourself. Remember to grant others the similar right — be tolerant, not dogmatic.
Saturn is in 12 Degrees Capricorn.
Very serious-minded and mature, you have the ability to take on responsibilities and to carry out important duties. You can also be trusted to be extremely practical and thrifty. A good organizer, you are the ideal one to be counted on to take a clearly defined project through to its logical conclusion. An achiever, you pride yourself on your ability to focus your attention totally on some worthy goal and then attain it.
Uranus is in 22 Degrees Leo.
You, and your peers as well, demand complete and total freedom of self- expression. You want to make your mark in the world according to your own lights and will brook no interference from traditional authority figures, especially if they attempt to mold or shape you in any way. You are honest and forthright, but a bit offbeat and eccentric. The lack of self-discipline may hinder you from reaching your goals as quickly as you would like.
Neptune is in 06 Degrees Scorpio.
You, and your entire generation, are extremely interested in anything deep and mysterious. You will explore and idealize the benefits that can accrue from the study of the occult, healing and psychology. You are willing to experiment with substances like drugs in order to push your understanding of your inner being to the extreme.
Pluto is in 05 Degrees Virgo.
For your entire generation, this will be a time when profound changes in society’s attitude toward work, duty and responsibility will be initiated. Radical changes in attitudes toward personal health and general nutrition will be promulgated and gain wide acceptance and practice.
N. Node is in 15 Degrees Virgo.
You’re usually quite at ease in leaving leadership roles in the hands of others. You would rather tend to the thousand and one details that need to be accomplished to keep any group going. Although you’re very fussy and high-minded when it comes to choosing your associates, once your loyalty is given you can be trusted with many of the practical aspects of any project that is being undertaken. Usually quite unselfish, you will toil long hours in the service of any worthy cause that demands your attention. But be careful that your perfectionist tendencies don’t get in the way of making real progress. (In other words, don’t waste your time dusting clean shelves!)
VW Ric Marquez has 5 planets (stellum) in Virgo cusp namely Sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars, and the North Node:
Sun in Virgo
Virgo is the sixth sign of the zodiac, to be exact, and that’s the way Virgos like it: exacting. Those born under this sign are forever the butt of jokes for being so picky and critical (and they can be), but their ‘attention to detail’ is for a reason: to help others. Virgos, more than any other sign, were born to serve, and it gives them great joy. They are also tailor-made for the job, since they are industrious, methodical and efficient. The sense of duty borne by these folks is considerable, and it ensures that they will always work for the greater good.
Virgo is ruled by Mercury, and as portrayed in ancient Roman mythology, Mercury wasn’t one to sit still for long. This swift-footed god was a bundle of energy, both physically and mentally, and that pretty much sums up the Virgin’s makeup. A Virgo’s brain is in overdrive most of the time, which is why these folks get so much done. Those born under this sign are also able communicators and use their mental acuity to maximum advantage. All of this brainpower can make Virgos prone to skepticism, and can even lead to the kind of over-think that surely leads to overkill. Thankfully, though, Virgos are also a studious lot and can temper their worst impulses with a bit of careful analysis. Virgos enjoy studying a situation in great detail, whether it’s a work project or a friendship. Virgins are truly interested in understanding things. The bane of many Virgos is the perfectionism that can get in the way of their usual clear thinking. ‘I’m not a perfectionist; I’m discriminating!’ a Virgo would say, happy in the knowledge that their taste is unparalleled. Along those lines, Virgos are also neat and clean, save for the occasional sloppy Virgin (they do exist). Virgins are also reliable and practical and oh-so-useful to have around.
The Element associated with Virgo is Earth, and in keeping with that, most Virgos are grounded, salt-of-the-earth types. The flash and dash can go to others, since Virgos would much rather be humble and easy-going. That said, Virgins do enjoy material possessions and are (dare we say?) picky about what they bring into their lives. Some might even go as far as calling them self-centered, but it’s really more of a desire to surround themselves with what’s right — for them. This knack for discernment also serves Virgos well in business, where their decisions are usually dead-on. Those born under this sign are eminently sensible and use their critical eye well. While Virgos can be worrywarts, they do their best to temper these impulses. However, if this nervousness goes unchecked, it can lead to hypochondria, that ugly skeleton in the Virgo’s closet. For that reason, Virgos are extremely health conscious, to the point of being storehouses of information on diet and hygiene. Many Virgos even choose a health or medical career so they won’t miss a beat.
Working out is elemental for Virgo, if only so they know intellectually that they’re helping themselves physically. See, the benefits of exercise are far more important to Virgo than the process itself. That’s why Virgos are likely to time themselves on their runs and get in those 300 sit-ups every day. When it comes to the game of love, Virgos are able to loosen up somewhat and are devoted to their lovers, even if they can be a bit jealous. Since Virgo rules the intestines, worried Virgos need to be wary of bowel upsets. Soothing relief often comes in the way of earth tones, which is why Virgos like to be surrounded by shades of tan and a warm yellow.
The great strength of the Virgo-born is in their practicality, sharp mind and attention to detail. When merged with their willingness to serve, Virgos become essential helpmates. They can be picky — so what?
Mercury in Virgo
Mercury in Virgo people are rarely flashy in their communication style, but they do thoroughly appreciate it when others acknowledge their brainpower. These people love to keep track of all the details. They can be a little high-strung when things are not orderly or when things seem out of control, so they put a lot of energy into taking care of day-to-day, practical matters.
Mercury in Virgo men and women are generally adept at organizing, planning on a short-term scale, and doing errands. They pay their bills on time, enjoy learning the details of a trade, and generally don’t balk at secretarial tasks. They function best when they (or others) have laid out exactly what they have to do. They are generally prompt at responding to others (although a Leo Sun may be less so), and often are willing to lend a hand to others by doing research and leg work for them.
Generally, these people are considered rather useful in their work and as friends because they have a handle on the details of the things they do.
Although they are capable of learning a lot, they need orderly environments in which to learn and study, and organized study methods. They generally pick up a lot of facts and figures, and learn their own trade well, but have trouble truly absorbing the knowledge they collect on a deeper level. Although resourceful, Mercury in Virgo is not as strong at lateral thinking than, for example, water sign Mercuries.
If your Mercury is in Sagittarius or Gemini, you may find Mercury in Virgo difficult to communicate with. Although you two may share common interests, the way you deliver your message can be intensely different to the point of frustration. Learning to understand that your thought processes are different, and the way you present your ideas differ, but there is more common ground than you may know.
Mercury in Virgo natives may appear humble at times, but they get quite protective when it comes to handling day-to-day affairs. They can be very impatient with others, feel they do these things best, take on more work than they should, and then complain that they are doing all the dirty work.
Venus in Virgo
Venus in Virgo people are not the flirtatious sort. Instead, their appeal lies in their dedication, their willingness to work on the relationship, and to make the relationship work in real terms. Unlike Venus in Leo, they won’t try to impress you with grand gifts or promises. Their gifts are less showy, but perhaps far more generous — gifts of devotion and attention to details about you.
Venus in Virgo men and women quietly (and often slowly) make their way into your heart. They are quite sensitive in love — even insecure — and this reserved, loner-like quality is part of their appeal. They prefer to play it safe in their relationships, and they need to be confident that you like them before they make a move. They are great listeners and they make it a habit to observe and learn all of your ins and outs. Their love can be of the Kindergarten variety — they show they care by nagging or criticizing. Remember, though, that they are not trying to hurt you when they are pointing out the flaws in your thinking, plans, or even character. They truly are trying to help! Venus in Virgo is attracted to nondescript people who have largely gone unnoticed. Show-offs and know-it-alls turn them off.
Pleasing Venus in Virgo involves showing you appreciate them for all the little things they do — and they do a lot. The problem is, they do these things so quietly that you may not always notice or credit them for all these kind gestures. They do need some space (after all, they’re generally quite busy making everything work), so give it to them. Be genuine, not ostentatious. They are really not difficult to please after you have taken care of these basic needs. Avoid pushing your friends or family on them too fast — remember they are a little shy. They aim to please, and are easily intimidated by your experiences. Let them know how much you value them, and they will reward you with devotion and a charming willingness to talk things out.
Some Famous People with Venus in Virgo: J. C. Chasez (Mercury, Venus, and Mars in Virgo), Vin Diesel, Sarah Ferguson, John Lennon, Heather Locklear, Jennifer Lopez, Julia Roberts, Kevin Spacey (Venus and Mars in Virgo),
Mars in Virgo
These productive and busy people are goal-oriented, practical people. Although they can be a little scattered at times, simply because they are doing so many things at any give time, Mars in Virgo natives get things done–quite well! They have a knack for handling a wide variety of tasks at once, and a tendency to take on perhaps too much at the same time.
Most Mars in Virgo natives are not particularly aggressive by nature. Although they can be a little hard-nosed and critical at times, they rarely resort to pushing others around. Still, an annoyed Mars in Virgo native can be difficult to be around! Arouse their anger and they turn into complaining, over-critical nags. Generally, these natives don’t make themselves nuisances, so this stage is unlikely to last for very long. It is a sensitive position, however. It doesn’t take much to make these people nervous.
Mars in Virgo people are quite protective about their “system” for getting things done. Although rather humble in a general life sense, they can be quite particular about their methods–how they organize and accomplish their goals, mostly with work. Theirs is a nervous energy. Although they have some staying power, they can be restless and are not given to sticking with the same projects for too long.
These natives derive plenty of energy and life force from the things they do–their work, hobbies, and any kind of projects they take on. An idle Mars in Virgo native is a sorry sight, indeed. Fidgety, nervous, worried…all of these things are a sure sign that Mars in Virgo people have either too little to do, or far too much on their plates. There is a perfectionist at the heart of all people with this position. They’ll be the first to deny this, but it’s there! They worry when they are not producing anything, and they worry about whether what they’ve produced will measure up.
An earthy and sometimes nervous sexuality generally characterizes people with this position of Mars. In a sense, their performance in bed is similar to their work. These people want to be good at what they do. They will generally be open to experimentation, if only to feed their curiosity and to feel savvy. There’s often a shy and humble side to Mars in Virgo in any area that involves putting themselves out there and letting go (areas ruled by Mars). But experience and knowledge are important to these natives, and this drive generally wins over their natural reticence.
Some Famous People with Mars in Virgo: Ben Affleck, George Bush Jr., Nick Carter, J. C. Chasez (Mercury, Venus, and Mars in Virgo), Matt Damon, Johnny Depp, Cameron Diaz (Sun and Mars in Virgo), Gloria Estefan (Sun, Mercury, and Mars in Virgo), Elizabeth Hurley, Sarah Jessica Parker, Brooke Shields, Kevin Spacey (Venus and Mars in Virgo), Britney Spears.
North Node in Virgo
Moon in Scorpio
While others may find security and comfort in material things, Moon in Scorpio people seek out emotional intensity. No matter what, there is something very intense about Lunar Scorpios. They are diggers when it comes to the world of emotion–they can see beyond facades and cut right to the core of a person. This ability to “see” what isn’t obvious to the rest of the world can be intimidating to others or wildly attractive, depending on the audience.
Their deep-seated need for transformation and rebirth can manifest itself in the lives of Lunar Scorpios in different ways. Most have powerful, emotionally intense lives. Some feel like it is beyond their control — these natives seem to attract emotional upheaval, and their lives appear to consist of plenty of dramatic ups and downs. However, when accepted as an emotional need, rebirth and change doesn’t need to be so dramatic and overwhelming. In some way or the other, Moon in Scorpio natives seek out intense experiences. If their lives are regular in any way, there can be an unconscious need to test their own strength and stir up emotional excitement. Self-awareness and acceptance is probably the best way to handle this deep need for emotional drama.
Doing things halfway or having meaningless relationships simply doesn’t fulfill them. Lunar Scorpios want all or nothing.
Moon in Scorpio people often have a strong fear of betrayal. They seek out commitment, and feel the need for a partner to give up something for them. Some will put the people they love through a series of tests, and these are not always conscious. Their apparent suspicion can be trying for the people who love them. However, once committed, Moon in Scorpio people can be the most loyal and protective partners around.
Even the shy ones have enormous presence. Their lives are emotion-driven, yet many Moon in Scorpio natives spend a lot of time controlling and mastering their emotions. Their intuition is enormous, although it is sometimes self-serving.
Moon in Scorpio people radiate strength. Even in the absence of experience, they seem to “just know” things. It would be difficult to shock or scare away Lunar Scorpios in the face of emotional honesty and power. Some people instinctively want to lean on them, and other less brave folk run a little scared. Lunar Scorpios have exceptional “radar” that allows them to size up a situation–and a person–quickly and expertly. This ability to understand human motivation and nature can be too close for comfort for some, and enormously comforting for others.
Many Lunar Scorpios are intelligent and astute. Those that use their enormous powers for intimacy and honesty are the happiest, and they make the most interesting and rewarding friends and lovers.
Some Famous people with Moon in Scorpio: Ben Affleck, Lauren Bessette (Sun, Moon, and Mercury in Scorpio), Bjork, Shannen Doherty, Eminem, Whoopi Goldberg (Sun, Moon, and Mercury in Scorpio), Harry Hamlin (Sun, Moon, and Mercury in Scorpio), Elizabeth Hurley, Avril Lavigne, Alanis Morissette, David Schwimmer (Sun, Moon, and Venus in Scorpio), Steven Spielberg (Moon and Venus in Scorpio), Patrick Stewart
Saturn in Capricorn
If you have Saturn in Capricorn, you are ambitious, self-controlled and you have organizing ability. You can be a disciplined, patient, hard worker who eventually receives the deserved rewards. There is a tendency to take life very seriously and duty and responsibility are very important to you. You understand that time and suffering serve a purpose and that happiness is not the final goal of existence. You may find it difficult to divide your energies between work and play. You have the ability to translate abstract concepts into concrete terms. You may experience feelings of loneliness and inadequacy and that could be one reason why you tend to work so long and hard. On the negative side, prestige and social standing may be extremely important to you and you will be tempted to do whatever you have to in order to acquire them. Selfishness and a great love and desire for power can also be present.
Jupiter in Sagittarius
If you have Jupiter in Sagittarius, you are big-hearted, idealistic, loyal, generous, humane, broad- minded, philosophical and tolerant. There may be interest in religion, law, higher education or anything abstract. You may be prophetic and inspirational and you can inspire trust in other people. They are attracted to your sense of honor and integrity. You have a strong desire to help others and you have an ability to inspire them to help themselves. You may be in a position of power and prestige or work in the professions. You tend to be conservative because of a desire for people to like you. You must watch a tendency to justify yourself by rationalization.

Life Path in Numerology
August 28, 1960= 8+28+1960= 8+1+7=16= 7 life path number
In Numerology, 7 is the sacred number that symbolizes secret, analysis, understanding and lies in the evolution of the process. And on the 7th day God rested. Number 7 has the energy of deepening into oneself and distancing oneself from the world to go deep within. Numerology number 7 is a combination of spiritual and material (holy trinity 3 + human physical experience 4). Seven is the triumph of spirit over matter. Every seven years human body and soul is renewed.
People with life path number 7 could be in the conflict between vanity (every day life) and taking the higher path of purpose. Many people with life path 7 have strong intuition and are able to receive information from the higher level of consciousness through their dreams. For people with life path number 7 the direction should come from their own Spirit from their true self within and they should not give responsibility for their own life to others. They are the ones who have the ability to control their own life and destiny. One of the main goals in life for people with life path number 7 is to learn how to calm their mind and they can do it through digging deep in the self-discovery process. They often have bright mind and their life is often dedicated to the analysis of the surrounding world. People with life path 7 need to learn how to trust their own intuition until it reaches the level of higher wisdom. They have the urge to realize intangible energies and often do not give value to material things. Life path number 7 has to know how to be alone with their own self without feeling isolated or abandoned. They are very deep, have a big feeling of self-worth and elegance. It could be hard for people with life path number 7 to understand themselves sometimes, which makes it even harder for other people and that is why life path 7 could be labeled as a white crow by others. They often have their own criteria for making decisions and it could be considered weird by others. Life path 7 often feels uncomfortable in society. People with life path number 7 are not very talkative and they have a tendency to spend time alone (which they actually really need). They learn best when they are alone, studying through books or conducting research, which makes them not the best team-player.
Professional skills and qualities of people with life path number 7 are: great researchers, scientists, high level of intellect, good with computers, good investigators, analysis and deep knowledge. Entrepreneurship is not really a thing for a life path #7. The true value for them is knowledge and material comfort is not the highest priority for them. Life path 7 could choose the field of philosophy since they do like to learn and are very curious. They should work for themselves and if they are a part of a team, they should be allowed to work independently. People with life path number 7 do not like to impose their own will on others or dominate, that is why if they become a boss, they should create a system where every team member works independently. People with life path #7 could also be good teachers or mentors.
Relationships do not come easy for people with life path number 7 or to their partners. Life path 7 are capable of great worries, but they will never show it since they are very good in hiding their feelings. People with life path number 7 have a very high percentage of people who end up lonely. Even if they get married, it does not guarantee mutual understanding between partners. For life path number 7, the best partners are those who have the same vibration of numerology #7. Life path numbers 4 and 9 could work well together. Life paths 2 & 6 would try to please people with life path number 7 but it usually will not have any effect. People with life paths 3 & 5 could be difficult for life path #7 since number 7 needs isolation. Life paths 1 & 8 like power too much and will not be an easy union for a life path number 7.
Here are some famous people with the life path number 7:
Stephen Hawking, Muhammad Ali, Sir Winston Churchill, Diana, Princess of Wales, James Cameron, Mel Gibson, Al Pacino, Leonardo DiCaprio, Bruce Lee, Heath Ledger, Johnny Depp, Kristen Bell, Michael Douglas, Marilyn Monroe, Julia Roberts, Keira Knightley, Naomi Watts, Natalie Portman, Eric Clapton, Taylor Swift
