Featured Chart: Elon Musk – Visionary and Explorer

Featured Chart: Elon Musk – Visionary and Explorer

by Alison Price

Featured Chart

This is another featured chart of inspirational people of our times. I have written a brief interpretation for Elon Musk and brought forward the important features of his chart.

Of course there are many smaller and minor details in this chart but as with all good astrology you need to stay on the high roads and leave the byways and back roads for another day.

On a side note, I love that he is from South Africa as you may know I spent the majority of my life there so it is close to my heart.

Chart Details

Birthdate June 28, 1971, Pretoria, Gauteng, RSA. Time unknown. As the birth time is not available I have cast the noon chart so the planets will only be twelve hours off the actual birth time.

You have to ignore the ascendant and the houses and we don’t have the correct time. However what is left is correct and so you can proceed to interpret this chart.


Elon has an air and water emphasis suggesting his ideas and emotions are closely linked. He will go with his gut feeling when making decisions. Once the ideas come to him the level of excitement generated will allow his internal compass to choose the path he should take by the reactions each idea evokes.

There is a lack of the fire element which means he has weak inspiration but as we shall see this is counterbalanced by the two fire planets, Mars and Jupiter, being so well engaged in his chart.

Because of the missing birth time we have no information on hemisphere or quadrant emphases. If you happen to have Elon’s birth time let me know and I’ll cast the exact chart.

The Sun in Cancer shows his deep feelings for his family and he sees the business as a family. He truly cares for his employees and will make himself available for them.

Venus oriental in the sign of Gemini the Twins indicates people speak well of him and they will give him the benefit of the doubt. They love his message. He has a warm manner that attracts his audience.

The crescent Moon phase is a sign of promise to come as his life develops. Thing will emerge in their own time.

The Virgo Moon brings an emotional component to detailed work and he has the knack of spotting minute flaws in plans, projects or people. With this attention to detail he does not mean to bring others down but he uses it as a way to make things better for all. The smallest feeling or nuance will influence him to reassess his team and with whom he surrounds himself.

There is an interesting mutual reception between the Moon in Virgo and Mercury in Cancer. This supportive relationship suggests the feeling in his voice will be a give away as the coolness of his demeanor is belied by the emotions as he talks and shares his ideas with others.

Using gesticulations and strong words to make people care and respond to his message is a tactic he employs to great effect. He can talk and people will want to be a part of it all.

Major Aspect Pattern

Cardinal T-square Uranus opposition Chiron square Mercury.

With Mercury as the focal planet it draws the weakness and the breakdowns of his ideas through to be mentally processed. He probably has an active mind carefully assesses all inputs before he speaks. He will probably be aware of or be challenged by his perceived mental and verbal agility. He is a man of few words until he becomes comfortable with you. We may never know the real Elon as he protects himself through layers of technology.

The good Saturn trine Pluto aspect harnesses the power of determination which will encourage Elon to succeed.

The Jupiter conjunct Neptune (both Pisces planets) shows his exploration and vision are brought together to make something big. This is the sign of a dreamer.

The Jupiter opposition Saturn (and note both of these planets are also contra-parallel) makes this a double whammy opposition. His dilemma is between his reach and his grasp. Can he strive towards massive journeys without compromising his core goals? This aspect will be the energy that keeps him awake at night.

His natal Saturn is opposition to Neptune and again contra-parallel once more reinforcing his controlled imagination. He will likely see things through colour and feel and see the internal art they possess. This shows a duality of confidence coupled with the fear of following his own rainbow.

Thor’s Hammer

The Mercury square Chiron and both sesquiquadrate Jupiter form the Thor’s Hammer major aspect pattern. This drives the chart and the man. He may hesitate to speak up but his actions will be his voice. He may feel his background is weak but in time he will be lauded as a pioneer and explorer extraordinaire. In his own mind he is still a young man who struggles to make idle chit chat.


Inherent creativity is shown by the quintiles in his chart.

The Quintile Arrow

This is the most likely major aspect pattern that spearheads his innovation and creative drive. Mars is conjunct the north node in Aquarius indicating unpredictable leadership. As the head of his tribe he keeps everyone on their toes.

But that’s not all.

Mercury and Pluto are quintile each other and both are bi-quintile Mars. This forms the rare quintile arrow and points to Mars as the resolution for all his creative energy. He is truly a pioneer in fact he probably has many projects and ventures in the pipeline. He can turn his ability to any of them. This makes him a man’s man and a no nonsense kind of guy.

Mars trine Venus shows he will relish a beautiful woman on his arm. If she can communicate on his level or not it will not matter. He is likely to have the met love of his life at a young age and she may have been, or still is, the girl next door. He will use his early connection to the fairer sex as a yardstick with which to measure other women against.

The Sun biquintiles Neptune which suggests his vast imagination and how being identified with “out of this world” things is a part of his life.

He is a dreamer with the drive to make innovation. We have not seen all he can do. The best is yet to come.

Featured Charts – Get Your Chart Featured

by Alison Price

Featured Charts

I have always been intrigued by history, science, art and creativity. I believe that most people possess inspirational creative talents but that they have been buried for so long because of the daily grind.

Recently I started to bring some of these people forward and feature their charts in my new section “Featured Charts” (catchy name, yes?) where I provide a high-level astrology interpretation of the chart.

The charts that are featured here are chosen for their owner’s good works,  inspiration and creativity (or to be honest because these people interest me).


Who Needs Their Chart Featured?

If you are worn down by work, financial or family demands it can rob you of your inherent spark. It is this spark that I wish to bring alive through reading charts for exactly that scenario.

To find your way back to living your authentic yet creative life. To find your spark.

At the end of the day creative people can look back and say. “I made this” whereas many people in other industries, and boring 9-5 jobs, simply shovel papers, people or money around without making anything.

Now I know all about having a day job or a “Survival job” (one which pays the rent), and trying to launch a creative life on the side. It is not easy.

Your Side Hustle

You may be working your day job but have a side hustle, or you could be of independent means, retired or a housewife and simply need to express yourself through a creative outlet.

All of these situations can be brought forward through a high-level astrology reading when your chart is featured in my Featured Charts section.

I usually work with artists, musicians, photographers, Tarot readers, singers, crafters, dancers, painters, designers, poets, writers, and astrologers. The list goes on.

But the common theme among the majority of my clients is:

  • They work by themselves.
  • They have many works in progress (#WIP’s).
  • They are solopreneurs.
  • They are not so good at the business of business.
  • They want time to do their craft and not be consumed by the boring administration.
  • They live and breathe their creations.
  • They are one man (or woman) shows.
  • They have a day job.

Does this sound like you?

Giving Back

I like reading charts for the good folks I have met in my life.

You only need the full-blown astrology reading if you are really interested in the ins and outs of your chart.

Most people can get away with a high-level interpretation and that is what I’m giving you in my Featured Charts series.

How to Get Your Chart Featured

Each month on YouTube one of my videos has details at the back on how to get you chart featured. You have to be a subscriber and comment on the right video for a chance to win.

One person will be chosen and their chart interpreted by me on YouTube in the following month. I’ll get right on that and have it up for you as soon as possible.

Featured Chart: Jack Conte – Inspired Creator

Featured Chart: Jack Conte – Inspired Creator

by Alison Price

Featured Chart

Now and then I like to cast the featured charts of people who are inspirations to us all. I look for those individuals who have made a difference in the lives of others by their ideas, creations and actions. This time I chose Jack Conte the inspiration and creative drive behind Patreon.

Chart Calculations

I have the birth details of July 13, 1984, San Francisco, California, USA. Because his birth time is unknown (to me) I’ve cast the midday chart.

The high noon time places the nativity halfway through the day and this means that no matter what his actual birth time was we are only a maximum of twelve hours out. Therefore most planets will be in the same positions in the signs.

The only question is the Moon’s sign. If he was born in the morning then the Moon was in Capricorn or if in the afternoon then the Moon was in Aquarius.

You have to ignore the ascendant and the house positions.

Brief Interpretation

If it is a Moon in Capricorn then he will be slightly reserved with his feelings and moods may linger longer than they need. This placement makes it hard to have felt loved in the early years. As an adult, he wants to provide a home environment where mutual respect is key.
With an Aquarius Moon, it brings a cool emotional attitude to life. He will be more inclined to text his feelings or recite poetry to his lady love. This placement suggests he likes many types of cuisine and will experiment in the kitchen and share his offerings with those close to him.
There are four planets in anaretic degrees. This means they are at 29 degrees of their signs. These are planets that are both subdued and yet paused awaiting their conscious revival by Jack himself. They are poised with their potential. As he grows older he can tap into these planets in a meaningful way.

The two artistic planets Venus and Neptune are both anaretic. They are in the quincunx aspect with each other and this suggests he continuously strives to discover the music he likes. It is as if he knows it’s inside himself but it takes time to tease it out and let it fully bloom. He will be constantly adjusting the type of beauty and atmosphere which his music evokes.

Inner Struggle

The Sun in Cancer shows he has vibrant emotional responses and this can create knee-jerk reactions to many events in his day. Time has to be taken to fully process the mood of the moment before his inspiration can shine.

The final dispositor of Jack’s chart is Mars in Scorpio and this provides him with controlled drive and the desire to challenge the status quo. He will likely compete with himself most of the time as things never seem to be exactly right. This suggests he redoes his efforts frequently until time itself pushes him to release the buried creative expression and give birth to his work.

He is a passionate warrior and will go into battle for things that touch his core. The biggest conflicts may be inside as he struggles to find his path and direction. This can be accomplished by constantly facing the issues close to his heart so he can help others in a meaningful way.

The conjunction of Mars with Saturn brings a steadfast discipline to finish the things he starts. The challenge here is that he may not like what it has become but he will continue to completion.

This man will get better as he gets older. The drive as a young man will slowly but steadily become reined into a special purpose as he grows older. In time he will move from being a generalist to become a specialist. This shift of focus will bring him more personal satisfaction than in the early years.

Art and Music

As the founder of Patreon for the patrons to the arts, the principle sits well with his Venus Neptune aspects and the signs in which both planets find themselves. To bring value to art will be a theme for Jack. At the same time he will continue to do his own musical work as he always considers himself an artist.

In days gone by he may have been a starving artist and the feeling of “want” will be the thing that propels him forward. This man will do more with a woman in his life than he can do alone. He is productive when his partner walks the path of life at his side, neither leading nor following, but as an equal.

His Venus in Cancer urges him to make music that soothes or makes the listener feel they belong in a world where many do not. Jack’s Neptune is stimulated to make the journey from amateur to professional musician. That he ever made any money from his songs is still unbelievable to him.

Energy Expression

Mars is trine the Sun and this give endless energy and a bright outlook to life. In his heart of hearts, he is up to the challenge. He will fight the good fight and be on the side of the angels.

Mars is square Mercury and this aspect shows the dichotomy between how he thinks and what he actually does. He can talk the talk and also walk the walk but the focus may be a troubling attribute. He will try hard to remain on track as the influences from other artists may be catalysts for a change of mind. Thoughts will benefit from being aired and groups like think-tanks will help him to get the energy for innovation out.

Mars and Saturn are the two bad boys of the zodiac and when they come together hard facts are faced and the result is a structure that sustains. Life will have its challenges for Jack and he may face many hurdles. Grit and determination to produce something of value will be the core drivers of his life.


There are several planetary configurations that will stimulate change for Jack in the next year or two.

In October the growth planet Jupiter will conjoin his natal Pluto and this will be reflected as an expansion at the core levels of his life. Opportunities to bring buried projects to conception will present themselves. Personal transformation will be the over-arching them towards the end of 2017.

The month of December promises to be full of activity and events and an opportunity to be published or launch an album will be an option. Jack will go into 2018 with more drive and confidence from his supporters than ever before.

The challenge will likely be in deciding what to do next as the chances for great things come to him. It will be decision time and plans made during the last month of the year will affect his future.

At the end of the year as Saturn meets his Neptune it triggers the quincunx to Venus and there could be a sadness as some parts of his life will be let go. He cannot do everything and it is best to focus on one or two projects whilst shelving others even though they may promise to be fun. He does not need to fear, as he can return to them later.

The early months of 2018 will be a period all about planning and establish solid foundations on which to stand as Jack builds his empire.




Note, if you happen to have the correct birth time please send me the info and I’ll cast the exact chart. 💛

What is Patreon?

Patreon is a place that showcases artists and creative people so that patrons (that’s you) may choose to support creative people (that’s me) through small, regular financial giving. Your patronage can be as modest as $1 a month.

Who I am

I am Alison Price a writer, astrologer and creative in Vancouver, Canada. I live sparingly with my family and maintain a low carbon footprint. I have no car, no cable TV and no pets. I care for a plant called Egbert and lots of books.

In my creative work I have a computer, phone and printer. I use software, paper and ink and I have internet and web hosting commitments. These things are my main expenses apart from a roof and food.

I share and grow my astrology knowledge at workshops and conferences where I usually teach but sometimes I just attend. I like to recharge my creative juices through spending time with inspired people.

My currency is astrological and new age knowledge.

My Creative Work

I am driven to provide basic astrology that everyone can use. I strive to give you enough information so you can bring the essence of astrology into your life without having to learn the detailed intricacies of chart work or in other words the nitty gritty.

My goal is to raise basic astrological knowledge of everyone through simple, but correct, information. This is the stuff you can confidently use and you know some already like your Sun sign.

I aim to take this knowledge out of the ivory towers of “Astrology only” people and make it available for those who seek understanding. If you support enlightenment then you can help everyone else on their journey.

Of course I am happy with high-level astrological theory, debate and questions but that only appeals to a select group.

Your Support

I ask for your support, through your patronage, so I can continue to develop and write about astrology for everyone. Please help me.

Thank You

Your contribution means so much to me. I appreciate each and every one of you. Thank you for considering to be my patron.



Create the Life You Want with the Art of Astrology

Create the Life You Want with the Art of Astrology

By Alison Price

Your Creativity

I believe that all women are creative. Each and every one of us has something to offer and it can be big or small.

I find that if you bring your talents forward and make time for interesting things it establishes a balance in your life between what has to be done and what you like doing. It is the action of creating that makes the process satisfying.

We all have responsibilities such as having to work for someone else, commuting, launching our kids into the world and maintaining a social life and meaningful personal relationship.

Daily you may face a to-do list and if you don’t do them who will? If you tap into your creativity it can mitigate many of the mundane details of life.

As Women Evolve

Many of the women I see in my astrology practice are in the forty- or fifty-something age group.

They have already brought up their children and made a home for their family. At this point in their lives they want something more. They ask me, “Is this all there is?” or words in the same vein.

After the efforts they have put out for years that are now not needed, they have a good look at their life. The kids have gone their partner now may, or may not, measure up and an uneasy feeling of dissatisfaction has crept in.

Other women relish their newfound freedom and seek ways to make the most of the next phase of life. Either way women want a new direction, purpose and meaning for their life.

Enter Astrology

This is where an astrology consultation can help. Astrology is the study of the influence that the stars and planets have on life on Earth. Thousands of years of analysis have shown that particular traits are inherent in each zodiac sign.

A professional astrologer can cast your unique birth chart and provide you with a life map for your journey.

Your natal chart is original and contains many combinations of planetary energies all flowing at the same time in different directions. It is the skill of the astrologer to sort through the themes shown in your chart and present a clear picture for you.

I look at all the planets including your Sun and Moon signs and find the message in your chart. It is different for each one of you. Some will call it your soul purpose, others your life path.

Whichever words you choose to use your birth chart shows all the potentials, urges and opportunities that you have and that need to be satisfied in this lifetime.

We cannot all be rocket scientists, and indeed it would be a very different world if we were, but every woman owes it to herself to be what they truly want and not have to bow to what society, or your mother-in-law, or anyone else, thinks you should be.

Reading for Mari

I had a client recently a woman we will call Mari. She came to me in mid-life for a reading. I think initially she was simply curious as she had never consulted an astrologer before. We exchanged pleasantries. I offered her tea and we settled down in a comfortable environment for her reading.

She started off by saying, “What can you see?” and I began discussing her chart and spoke of how I interpreted her chart and who I saw her as through reading her chart and the eyes of astrology.

I had never met her before and soon I was chatting about her motivations and how her nativity was suggesting a certain path. She stopped me then, and said, “I wanted to do that when I was a girl, but I had forgotten about it until you mentioned it.”

I asked her, “Do you still want to do it?”

She thought for a moment and said, “Well I did once but that was a long time ago, I’m a different person now, I have responsibilities.”


I shall break from the story here and tell you that this response is common. That what we wanted to do as children or young people has been shelved in favour of a life that is an existence but pays the rent.

Yes, I know providing a roof is important but to my mind having your dream come alive again is a most desirable state of affairs.

Astrology can help you focus on what is truly important in your life and, to be honest, it could simply be continuing down your present path. But for many women it is a way to re-ignite ideas or passions that have been left to wither on the vine.

Let Your Ideas Breathe

Going back to Mari’s situation. I urged her to consider changing what she was doing, not all at once as transformation can be daunting, but that she let the thoughts of following her long lost passion mull in her head for a while and give her ideas space to breathe.

Two months later I met with Mari again and we discussed how things were going for her. She told me she had signed up for a class to refresh her desired activity and would be starting in the New Year.

She also informed me that she has changed her attitude towards herself and her view of what she wanted her life to be.

Although this was still a work in progress the small changes she had made had improved her overall perspective and brightened her outlook.

Consider getting your chart featured. What are you waiting for?
