And one of my personal favorites of his quotes: "The important thing is not to stop questioning."
Born in Ulm, Germany on March 14, 1879 (NS = Gregorian calendar), Albert Einstein's birth registration indicates the time he entered the time/space continuum on Earth to be 11:30 am (-0:40) which SolarFire gives as 11Can38 rising, Mc 12Pis50, with 10th house Sun 23Pisc55, 6th house Moon 14Sag32, at an Hour of Mars 26Cap55 in 7th house (quarrels with partners; marriage disagreements for which he is well-known. Not a good husband, our Albert.)
The steamy Water-Fire blend of Sun Pisc-Moon Sag is indicative of one who is romantic, moody, volatile, and artistic. Steam sterilizes and purifies but can also scald! Water-Fire's shadow (unconscious side) describes one who cannot be objective in his views and uses an intensely urgent and passionate approach.
In fact, Einstein's Pre-Natal Eclipse Series, the one he was born into, is the 7 North, which Brady's Predictive Astrology gives as 'a very sensual family of eclipses; hidden passions may catch people off-guard and confront them with very deep passions which may have been hidden for many years.'
Yes, Albert was quite a ladies' man, wasn't he? Except to his wife who early on in his career shared his intellectual pursuits. But Sun Pis-Moon Sag doesn't like to be 'tied down' so I believe he resented marriage and the responsibility of children.
With his natal Saturn (the father) in its fall in Aries, his own papa may not have been much of a bargain either - little Albert had to depend on himself. Sad that he basically did the same to his own children.
FYI: a Solar Eclipse in the 7N Series last manifested at 19Ari06 on April 8, 2005; next occurrence will be on April 20, 2023 at '30Aries.'
Sun Pisc-Moon Sag is also noted for breadth of intellect, a far-ranging creative imagination, and deep self-confidence. Enthusiastic and ironically humorous, this blend can make everyone laugh and feel that a *bff has been found.
Here is an adventurer and restless seeker of truth (Sag) with a religious bent but not for organized religions (Pisces.) A strong social awareness is present, along with a streak of mysticism that can bring a reverential fervor to all endeavors.
Einstein's natal chart shows a Mercury/Saturn conjunction in early Aries, sign of the pioneer, which gives much structure and logic to the thought patterns as well as scientific and mathematical talents, fore-sightedness, and strong powers of visualization.
The **Images for Integration for this blend are:
A black woman priest in the confessional hears a tale of woe from a white converted scientist and they fall in love...Einstein's Theory of Relativity.
(The last word picture is for obvious reasons!)
Sun Pisc-Moon Sag is shared natally by some interesting folk: Rupert Murdoch, Copernicus, Jackie Gleason, Nijinsky, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Ishmael Reed, Victor Hugo, and...Billy Crystal!
And btw, in photos of #Einstein you've noticed his limpid Pisces eyes (Pisces Sun with watery Cancer ascending) which some might call bedroom eyes!
*bff = 'best friend forever'....but you knew that!
