By now most people are sick of all the media coverage the Tiger Woods sex scandal has received over the last couple months, since his infamous car crash on November 27th. With the shocking news of his multiple extra-marital affairs surfacing over the subsequent weeks, his 'clean cut' image took a meteoric dive to a depth that is rarely seen with a public figure. It was certainly one of the biggest news stories of 2009, if not the decade. It's no wonder he's not been seen publicly since.
According to the astrodatabank website Tiger Woods's birth time is 10:50 pm giving him Virgo ascendant. It is said to come from "birth certificate in hand," which gives it the highest rating of AA in Rodden's birth time rating system. However, this gives his ascendant less than 1 degrees, which brings to question whether he could actually be Leo ascendant. We talked about this in an earlier article by Marc Boney titled, Tiger Woods: Leo or Virgo Ascendant? These recent scandalous events took place during his Sun-Venus dasha making it very clear that he indeed has Virgo ascendant. First see his chart:

With Virgo ascendant the dasha lord Sun is in the 4th house, aspected by the 8th lord Mars. The 8th house is a house of secrecy, sexuality, and scandals. We talked about this in the last article, Bill Clinton and Shodashottari Dasha, by K.N. Rao. Mars is a planet of lust and becomes doubly so when it rules the 8th house. Notice that the Sun also goes to the 8th house in the navamsha chart conjunct Mars and Venus. Whenever Mars and Venus combine it intensifies sexual passion. The Sun dasha alone brings in this element of sexual lust. The Sun dasha began in June 2004, which is as far back as the earliest claims of infidelity by Tiger's mistresses go.
Tiger Woods's Navamsha Chart
When his Venus sub dasha began in June 2009, it put him in both a mahadasha and antardasha of a planet aspected by the 8th lord Mars. However, Venus is not only aspected by Mars, they exchange signs forming a parivartana yoga, which intensifies their connection and the quality of sexual passion they represent. Venus's placement in the 8th sign of Scorpio, a notorious house of secrecy corresponding to the 8th house, and conjunct a debilitated Moon further increases the qualities of Scorpio and secret love affairs. The claims that Tiger is a sex addict certainly makes sense when you add all this up, and consider that Venus combines with the Sun, and Mars in the 8th house in the navamsha. It's in Sun-Venus that the sex scandal surfaced. This is all abundantly clear with Virgo ascendant and the 8th lord, Mars, aspecting both the Sun and Venus, and combining with them both in the navamsha.
The transit of Saturn into Virgo in early September also confirms Tiger's Virgo lagna. Here's the chart of the transits on November 27, 2009.
Transits on November 27, 2009
When Saturn transits over the lagna it can be a time of personal reflection, evaluation, and re-organization. Saturn makes us look at the hardest lessons that we've been avoiding and learn to take responsibility for our actions. I like to call Saturn the 'great denial buster.' With Saturn transiting his lagna it aspects his 7th house, and 7th lord, Jupiter. It also aspects the karaka of the 7th house, Venus, his sub dasha lord. It's clear that it's time for him to look at his marriage and his extra-marital activity. This is also a huge personal change because it's his lagna, his self and identity. His image is going through a major revision. Incidentally, during this time the double transit of Jupiter and Saturn was in the 1st house further emphasizing his need to focus on himself.
Lastly, to further confirm the Virgo lagna, it was during the Sun-Venus-Rahu dasha, that he had his minor car accident. Notice how Rahu was transiting his 4th house of vehicles at the time. His Rahu sub dasha lasted until December 16, 2009, and it was in early December that his wife, Elin Nordegren, reportedly moved out of their home. This upheaval to their domestic life is also indicated by the Rahu pratyantar dasha and Rahu's transit through the 4th house.
