Father Sun, Mother Moon (Part Twelve)EinsteinImageyoung

In my book, “Father Sun, Mother Moon: Astrology’s Dynamic Duo”, I describe each of the 144 possible combinations of the twelve Sun Signs and the twelve Moon Signs. In this series of articles I am presenting examples of some of these combinations.


We’ve arrived at the last of the twelve Sun signs, Pisces, and the final installment of this series. Our example is Albert Einstein who had the Sun in Pisces and the Moon in Sagittarius.(Click here to see Einstein's horoscope.)


 Here’s what I say about the Sun in Pisces in “Father Sun, Mother Moon”,“What most often puts a Pisces person at the head of the pack is his or her creativity. Though they often excel in the arts, Pisces individuals can become stars in any field that requires imagination and thinking outside the box.”


Albert Einstein was certainly a man who thought “outside the box.” He took on the questions that dominated theoretical physics during his time and came up with solutions that totally changed the way we see reality. Many of his ideas still represent the cutting edge of scientific thought over a hundred years after he published them.


I also write,” these adaptable folks can be quite adept at turning a situation to their advantage.” Einstein had an unusual knack for getting the best possible results out of bad situations. After he finished college the young Einstein was forced to take a lowly job in the Swiss patent office. It was the kind of job that could have been mind numbing to some, but Einstein used the ample free time it afforded him to work on his theories on relativity.


Both Pisces and Sagittarius are Mutable signs and signs of the same quality (or mode) don’t get along. In this case, there’s always going to be a rift between the deep, emotional need of Pisces for companionship and support, and the need represented by the Moon in Sagittarius for independence and freedom. In the book I write, “Your Pisces soul longs for just the kind of close, emotional bonds that your Sagittarian Moon finds so confining.”


This conflict was particularly operative in Einstein’s relationship with his first wife, Mileva Maric. Einstein met and fell deeply in love with her while they were both students. He married Mileva despite the fact that circumstance made it necessary for the couple to conceal their union.  In “Father Sun, Mother Moon” I say of this combination, “you often act on impulse and you refuse to limit yourself to behavior that is safe or socially acceptable.”


However, when Mileva became pregnant, Einstein reaction was to send his wife to her home in Serbia where she endured ridicule and shame and gave birth to a daughter alone. Einstein corresponded with Mileva, but remained strangely disconnected from her trials. His attitude and the subsequent death of the child poisoned the marriage and it ended a few years later in an acrimonious divorce.
