At 2:49 AM on Monday (Memorial Day) 29 May 2017 Tiger Woods was arrested in Jupiter Florida for an alleged DUI, which he blamed on prescription medications.  Here is his natal chart surrounded by the transits for the incident.

What is striking about this chart is that the transiting Mars/Saturn opposition is exact at the time of the arrest and conjoins his MC/IC axis.  In the natal chart Mars rules his 3rd house of local transport and his 8th house.  In the transit chart Mars rules the Ascendant and also the 8th house of the transit chart.  Also at the time of the arrest, transiting Moon closely squares transiting Uranus which conjoins the natal 8th house Placidus cusp.

If we look at his Zodiacal Releasing from Spirit for this date, we see the following:

On Level 1, Woods is in a long-term Scorpio/Mars period, which highlights the natal 3rd house (local travel) and Mars, which occupies his Whole Sign 10th house of public reputation.

On Level 2, Woods is in an extended Leo/Sun period, which activates his natal 12th house (undoing, sorrow, confinement) and his natal Sun in the 9th house of long-distance travel.

On Level 3, Woods is in a Scorpio/Mars period (May 21 – June 27, 2017), which emphasizes his natal 3rd house (local travel) and Mars which occupies his natal 10th by Whole Sign houses and by transit.

On Level 4, Woods is in a Capricorn/Saturn period (May 27 – June 1, 2017), which activates the transiting Saturn/Mars opposition in effect at the time of the arrest (with Mars being activated on Levels 1 and 3.  Natally, Saturn occupies his 12th house of undoing.  In addition, his natal Sun (ruler of the natal 12th) is activated on Level 4 by its location in Capricorn, and his natal Mercury (rulers of transport and of his 10th house of public reputation) lies in Capricorn.

Here is Woods’ Whole Sign natal chart, which makes these relationships clearer:

    Saturn squaring his Asc and he has Saturn applying to conjunct his Moon again- a big Saturn transit year. You don’t get away with much during those times. Saturn Moon – he’s probably been a little depressed too – hence the drugs or the drinking.
