Summary: We use the Bianchi-I spacetime to study the local dynamics of a magnetized self-gravitating Fermi gas. The set of Einstein-Maxwell field equations for this gas becomes a dynamical system in a 4D phase space. We consider a qualitative study and examine numeric solutions for the degenerate zero temperature case. All dynamic quantities exhibit similar qualitative behavior in the 3D sections of the phase space, with all trajectories reaching a stable attractor whenever the initial expansion scalar \(H_{0}\) is negative. If \(H_{0}\) is positive the trajectories end up in a curvature singularity that can be, depending on initial conditions, isotropic or anisotropic. In particular, if the initial magnetic field intensity is sufficiently large the collapsing singularity will always be anisotropic and pointing in the same direction of the field.
