Elon Musk appears to be teetering on the brink of, or is in the middle of, an epic meltdown. First he sent out on off-the-cuff and against-SEC-regulations tweet about taking Tesla private to get back at financiers who were shorting his company’s stock and then gave a tearful interview where he admitted working 120 hour weeks and surviving on ambien sleeping pills. He has multiple problems with a possible insider trading investigation, plunging shares and allegations that Tesla knowingly shipped cars with battery flaws. Never mind other peripheral idiocies.
He was born on 28 June 1971 in Pretoria, South Africa, five days before Julian Assange and has a Sun, Mercury in Cancer square Uranus in Libra – creative and uncompromising; with his Jupiter in money-magnet Scorpio in a high-finance conjunction to Neptune and more crucially in a wobbly opposition to Saturn, and a powerfully confident and successful sextile to Pluto, and an impulsive square to Mars in determined Aquarius. His Saturn is also trine Pluto and Uranus giving him a tough-edge as he pushes ahead with innovations. His Moon is in hard-working and worrying Virgo and his Venus in Gemini.
He’s been described as “an iconoclast not bound by normal rules and conventions; a dreamer and risk taker.” And like all geniuses, which he probably is, he lives near the edge.
His Jupiter Saturn opposition is on a see-saw between crazy optimism and deep pessimism, stoking up an acute reaction to failure. He also has a strongly aspected 7th harmonic (septiles) which is highly creative and can also go along with a fine mental balance.
He does have a car-crash Solar Arc Mars square his Sun around now; as well as a discouraging tr Saturn opposition his Sun and square his Uranus this year; plus a dashed-high-hopes tr Neptune opposition his Sun/Jupiter midpoint in 2018/2019. On top of that tr Uranus is opposition his Saturn/Pluto and Neptune/Pluto midpoints this year into early 2019 which are high-stress and crazy-making. 2019/2020 look not much better and it’ll be 2022 before he really gets his mojo back as tr Pluto sextiles his Jupiter and picks up his Jupiter/Pluto midpoint.
