Elon Musk, 50: the man, the mystery, the visionary and … Twitter drama queen.
In recent years, his name has begun to appear everywhere, as he’s focused on using his influence to make people worldwide angsty as hell that they’re unlikely to own even a fraction of the titan’s whopping $222 billion, making him the world’s richest man ahead of Jeff Bezos, 57.
Musk is the founder, CEO and CTO of SpaceX; co-founder, CEO and product architect of Tesla Motors; chairman of SolarCity, co-chairman of OpenAI; co-founder of Zip2; and co-founder of PayPal. His ambitions in the space race are high — eager to colonize life on Mars — as well as potentially launch a new university and donate $6 billion to battle world hunger.
If that weren’t enough to boast about, the cryptocurrency named after his dog has surged 2,400%. It appears that everything the mogul touches ends up turning to gold.
But what in Musk’s birth chart makes him King Midas? Let’s find out!
Elon Musk’s birth chart
Elon Musk was born on June 28, 1971. That means that he is a focused Cancer Sun with an analytical Virgo Moon. Also, by looking at his chart, we see that his Sun and Moon are in a blessed angle of harmony, meaning that life patterns happen easily for him and he can quite fluidly balance his mind, heart and desires.
As a Cancer Sun, he is intuitive, compassionate and very adept at reading people and situations authentically. Cancers are a Cardinal Water sign, meaning that they have no problem asserting themselves and taking the lead — especially when they’re emotionally invested in the result. This makes them solid leaders and able to rally people behind them.
His Virgo Moon is so obvious, too, because those with this placement are extremely good at seeing the minutia of situations to read between the lines and then intuitively begin to develop a very clear method to improve plans going forward. Virgo energy is that of a manager, who can comprehend the overall vision while always understanding how to get from A to Z.
In that regard, he is highly intellectual and likely a perfectionist — which on one hand can make him more critical of himself and others, but is also a testament to his tremendous success. His ability to delegate is so advanced — to a level I have not seen in someone’s birth chart before.
Elon Musk was born for great success
Astrology is an art form that has many uses — so, of course, I can look at someone’s natal chart and make predictions regarding their lifelong cycles and aspects of their personality. In one regard, the birth chart is like a blueprint and map regarding how one can activate their strengths and reach ultimate fulfillment.
Musk’s main theme throughout his planetary alignments favors major success, wealth and fortune, giving him the ability to persevere despite challenges and become more ambitious with each single victory. His outer planets — which usually tie to our impact on society and larger themes in life — above and beyond speak about his greater destiny.
First, his Jupiter, the planet of luck and fortune, links with Pluto, the planet of major wealth and corporations. Then his Jupiter is in a very powerful alignment with Saturn, which rules authority and strength. This reveals that his ascent has taken time but, due to his focus on education, discipline and upholding a high standard for himself and his work, he was destined for long-lasting success and security. Jupiter is united with Neptune, the planet of visionary ideas and fantasy, bringing him above-average amounts of good luck and a humanitarian approach to life.
Last, his Pluto links with both Neptune and Saturn in a beautiful rapport, too. This shows that he has a far-reaching vision for the evolution of humanity and is deeply motivated to aid in this next great leap forward. Professional success, great wealth and mighty authority were easy for him to step into, and once he began to realize his intrinsic ability to rule — he never looked back. Even just one of these planetary aspects is profound, but with all of them present, it is clear to see that the stars have favored him specifically.
Elon Musk has important choices ahead as he builds his legacy
When it comes to his destined path in the coming years, we will see a great deal of growth and success for Musk from 2022 onward for many decades, as a powerhouse planet such as Jupiter, Saturn or Pluto will be hovering within his solar sector of expansion and growth. This tends to mean someone’s weight in the media increases, and also their ability to move in vast new directions in the pursuit of new horizons. He has so much energy on his side.
Also, an event called the Great Conjunction took place on Dec. 21, 2020, and officially ushered in the “Age of Aquarius.” This has been approaching for decades but was firmly cemented at that time to last for the next several hundred years. During this time, space travel, technology and astrology will grow in power. We will experience a visionary period around all of these areas — which is why Musk’s exponential success in 2021 has been great but is likely to truly flourish in the decades ahead.
When it comes to his personal life, Musk has an extensive dating history. However, due to electric eclipses that take place in 2022 and 2023, he’s likely to fall in love with someone new or find that his children demand more attention from him. When it comes to settling down or potential marriage, he does have opportunities for that, but most potently these will get super serious from 2027 until 2029.
The sky — or space, really — is his only limit.
