There is no great genius without some touch of madness — Aristotle
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.
