Albert Einstein was born 14th March 1879 at 11 30 am in Ulm, Germany. As would imagine with someone who has been the greatest scientist of all time, he must have a strong:
1. 8th house/Scorpio - (research oriented)
2. 12th house/Pisces - (deep thinker)
3. 6th house/ Virgo – (good with numbers)
4. 11th house/ Aquarius – (A bit of a revolutionary)
Let's have a look at his birth chart and find out:
Birth chart of Albert Einstein
Not only does he have Moon in the sign of Scorpio (research) but also in the 6th house, which deals with numbers. And what is even more interesting is that his Moon has no other planets 42 degrees on either side. His mind (Moon) was free from the influence of any other planet and it’s no surprise he was able to think of things outside the realm of imagination. He had a strong urge to isolate himself, “I think he had a contract with his wife that she said would leave him alone when requested” – crazy! Anyhow it’s great that he kept himself busy with work or else people with a lonely Moon are prone to depression.
"I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious" - he said
He has Sun (leadership), Saturn (discipline), Mercury (Intelligence), and Venus (Creativity) all stacked together in the house of career (10th house). And they are placed in the 12th sign Pisces, which is ruled by Jupiter (knowledge). So let’s just break it down. Venus loves the sign of Pisces so he must be quite creative, I googled his creative talents and guess what even before he was 11, he was a brilliant Violin player. Now Saturn in the house of career almost guarantees zero boundaries between his personal & professional life. These people are working around the clock. And it is the Sun (leadership) & Mercury (intelligence) conjunction that has shaped his career as a mathematician.
"Pure mathematics is, in its way, the poetry of logical ideas" - he said
The hunger for knowledge is all thanks to the position of Jupiter in the 9th house, which is not only the house of higher learning but also the original house of Jupiter. And it is placed in the sign of Aquarius, which is the most unconventional sign. People with a strong Aquarius always look at things differently and never follow the crowd. The whole Jupiter, 9th house (higher learning), and Aquarius combination is pointing at someone who was not only hungry for knowledge but also a bit of revolutionary.
"It's not that I'm so smart, it's just that I stay with problems longer." - he said
I think it all started when he fled Germany to the US in 1933. A few years later, a fellow scientist convinced him of the dangers of Nazi Germany developing an atomic bomb. He wrote a letter to President Roosevelt in 1939 to convince him to develop an atomic bomb before the Germans do. As luck would have it, by the time the US developed the bomb the Germans had already surrendered and the bomb meant to deter Germany fell on Japan. Even though he never actively worked on the atomic bomb, his role was instrumental in developing it. His letter not only changed the course of World War 2 but the World today.
.......as I’ve mentioned, many times that anything dramatic that people do they do it in the time period of Rahu. His letter to President Roosevelt on 2nd August 1939 coincides exactly with the beginning of the time of the period of Rahu.
