The last blog showed how the remarkable genius in Steve Jobs was predicted from his natal Mercury midpoints. Now we’ll take this a step further.

Genius is rare but even rarer is the talent and vision to expand that genius into everyday living. Steve did this with amazing ease, developing one device after another: the iPod, iPhone, and iPad appealed to people on every continent throughout the world.

Steve’s natal chart doesn’t provide many clues about how to expand his vision. His Venus is opposed Jupiter but the Sun doesn’t aspect either of them.

Traditional astrology would tell us that a Venus Jupiter opposition tends toward excessive indulgence or pleasure-seeking. The person may find it difficult to become motivated and struggle against inertia even in simple activities of daily living.

The encouraging interpretation describes a sociable person who expresses harmony with others compared to one who engages conflict and turmoil. These astrological readings give partial insights into the personality and character of Steve Jobs but the Cosmobiology midpoints reveal much more.

Turning to the 90-degree Cosmobiology wheel, we notice that his Sun midpoints the Jupiter /Venus combination with a very close orb. Now observe how this interpretation enhances the total view of Mr. Jobs.

The Sun represents self-expression, Jupiter opportunity, and Venus creativity — the explanation speaks for itself.

Venus/Jupiter represents an expansion or burst of creativity and love, and this is channeled through the Sun or self. The person is represented or known by others for their creative spirit. However, the ineffective result of the configuration is similar to the astrological opposition, that is, self-indulgence, negativity, and extravagance.

This midpoint allowed Mr. Jobs to put his unique ideas in place on a huge scale and his creative development culminated in a tremendous final achievement.

Shortly before his death, the company he co-founded — Apple computer, was worth more than any other firm, eclipsing Microsoft and even Exxon-Mobil and other giant oil conglomerates, on as Steve used to say ‘planet earth.’

Rest in peace Mr. Jobs.

Jupiter and Pluto. Few transits evoke a more meaningful reaction than this combination. The path of one’s life may turn abruptly and forever be changed.

Jupiter, the planet of wild expansion and outrageous abundance ignites the destiny creating Pluto of transformations. The result: a shocking new realization or opportunity for good fortune. This good fortune is not a fleeting event that quickly fades and is forgotten in the day, but a profound alteration that accelerates one’s growth — a release from the ordinary to the extraordinary.

Brad Pitt first experienced a Jupiter Pluto in 2004 when he began filming on the set of a comedic thriller called ‘Mr. and Mrs. Smith.’ Her name was Angelina Jolie.

What started as a Jupiter Pluto transit in early 2004 was coupled with an equally potent Jupiter Uranus transit as the filming finished.
Uranus, the planet of sudden development, furthered the fortunate changes that Jupiter Pluto had begun.

Their synastry would lead Brad to divorce his wife of five years and begin life over with a new family. Six children later Brad and Angelia are united more than ever.
