314: Aalok Varkhandkar on Einstein

with 2 comments

In Vedic astrology planets are often found in different states of strengths and weaknesses. Some planets are in friendly houses, some in enemy houses, some in houses where they are most powerful or exalted, and some are in houses where they are least powerful or debilitated.

A debilitated planet is a cause of worry in Vedic Astrology and is given special attention by an astrologer. Albert Einstein, the famous physicist, also had a debilitated planet in his horoscope and it was none other than Mercury, his ascendant lord.

Mercury in Vedic Astrology rules a great number of things but primarily intellect, education, teaching, learning, science, philosophy, mathematics. A debilitated Mercury should have deprived Einstein of having to do anything with these domains in life, but it is well known that he was the fortunate with regard to all these matters, and is considered the greatest scientist of all time.

Moreover, in Einstein’s chart, shown below, Mercury is the lord of the first house, which governs fame, as well as the lord of the fourth house, which rules knowledge and education, but Einstein became famous just because of his education and knowledge.

314: Erin Sullivan on Einstein

with one comment

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.

Born: 14 March 1879, 11:30 am in Ulm, Germany
Died: 15 April 1966, 1:15 am, in Princeton, NJ USA

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.
