314: Erin Sullivan on Einstein
Albert Einstein’s horoscope has some classic scientist signatures! Visionary and sensitive Pisces is frequently in the mathematical/astronomical science if it is well contained, as is Einstein’s Sun in Pisces. For instance, Mercury (mind) is with Saturn (discipline, control and research) in pioneering Aries – he has the capacity apply his visions to practical outcomes and after a difficult early life, found discipline and gained authority in his science.

Pisces is attuned to intangibles – to signs, symbols, portents, mysterious visions; and potentially, the capacity to render the invisible into working systems – such as energy, wavelengths, harmonics, spectra, music, atomic particles, metaphysical experiences, and so on.
Einstein believed himself to be a vessel of a divine principle. His Pisces Sun in a creative sextile to Pluto indicates that his mind was an agent on behalf of the “unseen”, and a resource of great wealth. Someone once said to him, “You are a genius, all your ideas are brilliant!” To which Einstein replied, “No, I just have lots of ideas, some of which have been brilliant.” It was this combined capacity for complex thinking and high intuition that distinguished him as an ingenious innovator.
