END OF THE AFFAIR: IS ELON MUSK’S DALLIANCE WITH CRYPTO OVER?

As a follow-up to my astrological analysis of the Bitcoin chart and its prospects during the 2020-21 bull market cycle, I have created a new video on my Astro-Insights Blog in which I do a deep dive into the astrology of the Space X billionaire’s tweet which sent Bitcoin prices crashing, along with a fresh look at what I believe to be Elon Musk’s correct natal chart. He has never stated his birth time publicly, so astrologers have had to guess his birth time, but as you will see, a few things that happened during this period that have confirmed for me that he has Capricorn rising, and not Aquarius. More details in the vide.o

However, after I had finished filming, I realized that I had not pressed the ‘record’ button on the section in which I analyse the positions of the planets at the time of his tweet about Bitcoin in relation to this new chart to see if it can tell us something more about his mindset and intentions when he sent it (the chart could not be read as a horary due to strictures so I had to read it as a mundane event).

So I thought I would use this post to give a quick summary of my thoughts.

  • Mars in Cancer is in his 6th house, right on his natal Sun-Mercury conjunction, which confirms to me that Musk is Mars in the Tweet Chart. Having Mars transit over your Mercury can make you shoot from the hip and make impulsive statements or decisions that you may later come to regret. Did he act hastily in doing a U-turn on Bitcoin? Or was he in on a Wyckoff Distribution set-up? And given that Mars is squaring his natal Chiron in the 4th house, was it motivated by beliefs or events that occurred during in his childhood, possibly involving an old wound concerning family/roots? (I am thinking here of his statement on Saturday Night Live about having Asbergers)
  • The Sun and Black Moon Lilith are in his 5th house of children, gambling/speculation and brief love affairs. Given his tweet back in January (screen grab below) at the height of Bitcoin euphoria, of what many believe to be him getting FOMO and wanting a piece of the Bitcoin action, is he in denial about the fact that for him, Bitcoin was just a brief fling?
  • With the Gemini stellium conjunct his natal Saturn (and if I am right, his chart ruler), is it possible that he was using ‘double-speak’ (Mercury in the sign of the Twins) to signal that he may want to create his own cryptocurrency? This skit from his Saturday Night Live Appearance certainly suggests so.
  • Or is the Moon’s fresh separation from Venus, as it applies to Mercury, a signal that Musk’s tweet is all about PR and damage limitation? Here I refer you to Kevin O’Leary’s recent interview on Yahoo Finance in which he discusses the growing concern amongst institutional investors over the provenance of their Bitcoin and a possible scandal brewing around so-called ‘bloodcoin’. (And could this be the reason for Pluto in the 3rd house of the Tweet chart?)
  • Pluto in Capricorn (transiting through what I believe is his first house) which is trining his natal Pluto, BML + Midheaven in the 9th house of beliefs, certainly suggests that he wants to maintain personal control over the narrative, but is being secretive about his true motivations. As ruler of the 11th house (groups, collective efforts, social media), he appears to be sincere in his beliefs with regards to the environment (his idealistic natal Jupiter-Neptune conjunction is what makes me think so). However, given the transit of Pluto through his first house, it could also be because he wants to use crowd psychology to convince people that his version of ‘dogecoin’ really SHOULD be the next currency of earth. Here, I refer you to his outfit, which one commentator described as ‘dictator-chic’. what The word, ‘plutocrat’ is not associated with dictators and oligarchs for nothing!
Musk used the same meme twice on his Twitter feed, both in December 2020 and January 2021, perhaps to signal that he and Tesla has bought Bitcoin. ‘Sea shanties’ is no doubt a rather salty reference to Michael Saylor, who helped to convince Musk to invest in BTC
  • However, with Saturn transiting his second house of money, and fast approaching its second square to Uranus (in his 4th), ruler of his 2nd house, he seems reluctant to put his money where his mouth is and sell his personal stake in Bitcoin. Perhaps because he wants to leave it to his children, or may have plans to use it to purchase a home or help a family member out financially?
  • Transiting Jupiter, also in his 2nd house, is square to his natal Saturn (5th). As the ruler of his natal 12th house, it suggests money secrets – again hinting the he has some ulterior motive involving financial gain that he is not disclosing in his official Twitter statement. Many in the space think it has something to do with him wanting to develop his own cryptocoin – the ‘currency of earth’ as he keeps saying. Is it Dogecoin? Or something completely new? Have a listen to my analysis of the Dogecoin chart (end of the video) to find out my view on the prospects of this altcoin, considered by many to be the underdog of the crypto world…
