And Speaking of Child Proteges…

Nikola Tesla (July 10, 1856 – January 7, 1943)

Circa 1890

There has to be some method behind the timing of hints that I’m given. In this case, yesterday’s post about Champ Jaxon featured a randomized birth chart which fixed his North Node conjunct the Ascendant. Then I started working on Nikola Tesla‘s birth chart, which features a similar aspect.

So, is that the proof of the ‘child protege’? (This chart is a bit different than most of the ones featured on astrology websites: theirs are timed for 12 midnight, mine is half-an-hour before. If the 12 midnight time is used, that would equate to 23.5 hours earlier than mine, so everything will seem the same, except the Moon.)

Your relationship with your mother may be rather unstable. She may be very involved in her own interests, which prevent her from being as close to you as she would be otherwise. She may be an unconventional person, a real free spirit. The problem is that your feelings about her are mixed, both loving and unloving. You may secretly resent her. Probably you don’t feel that you can express this consciously, but it could come out when you are angry or upset. Certainly this will result in not wanting to form close relationships with other people, especially women. And the people you do choose as close friends are likely to be exciting and different from anyone you have known in the past. However, they may also be rather upsetting.

Tesla’s mother, Đuka Mandić (1822–1892), whose father was also an Eastern Orthodox Church priest, had a talent for making home craft tools and mechanical appliances and the ability to memorize Serbian epic poems. Đuka had never received a formal education. Tesla credited his eidetic memory and creative abilities to his mother’s genetics and influence.

Nikola Tesla’s last message to his mother: “All these years that I had spent in the service of mankind brought me nothing but insults and humiliation.”

Mars Inconjunct Neptune

With this aspect you must learn to stand up for yourself and demand your rights forthrightly and directly. Often you feel that you don’t have enough energy to assert yourself or that any such effort would be futile. Unfortunately, some people with this aspect learn to work behind the scenes or dishonestly. Others simply give up or take a defeatist attitude toward life.

Sometimes this aspect operates on the physical plane as well. You may have a generally low energy level and feel tired all the time but not able to sleep because of nervousness. You may actually need more sleep than others, and if so, you should try to get it. This aspect may also indicate that you tend to have allergies and infections.

(I guess this comes from being born in the middle of a thunderstorm…)
