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.

Tragedy struck Prince William with his mother’s death and tragedy left him with the passing years and the discovery of love. Little did he realize that his future wife was born a Capricorn, six months his senior on Jan 9 1982 at Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading.

Perhaps it was her fashionable black dress that found his gaze, but what did the planets between Catherine Middleton, now known as the Duchess of Cambridge, and Prince William conspire to create? Let’s look at the royal romance from their midpoint astrology synastry aspects.

While the exact time of Kate’s birth is not known, we’ll focus on the slower moving, more potent planets. For this reason, her moon and Ascendant are not shown.

The most striking synastry midpoint is Kate’s Mercury-Jupiter-Venus that midpoints Will’s Mars-Uranus and his Venus-Saturn. This is a complicated set of midpoints so let’s take this one by one.

Her Mercury on his Mars-Uranus will bring logic to his (Mars) energy and sharpen his (Uranus) uniqueness. Next Jupiter midpoints the same two planets and expands his energy by creating teamwork or deepening a philosophy that is well suited to the expectations of royalty. The ineffective use of this midpoint is arrogance and intolerance. Last, Venus on his Mars-Uranus brings love, creativity and refinement to his energy and development.

The same combo to his Venus-Saturn a midpoint representing enduring love and disciplined creativity has a different result. Mercury brings a thinking approach to love and creativity while Jupiter bestows patience, duty, and philosophy to the union.

This is a very pleasant mix of aspects that should create a harmonious but lively marriage. A deeper philosophic connection with Jupiter is also a key that supports this foundation. We’ll know in time.
