Charles Babbage (December 26, 1791 – October 18, 1871)
I must say, the book I’ve been mining for reincarnational links has been very informative, so far. But sometimes it feels like the connections are fantasy stories, especially this one, which features the “Father of Computers” Charles Babbage. (A similar dynamic links Elon Musk and Thomas Edison.)
Because birth times were in short supply in the 18th Century, I have randomized the time. As a result, I shouldn’t apply too much emphasis on Mars inconjunct the Ascendant. But the Moon/Mercury conjunction looks promising.
I’ve set the clock for 12 noon on Babbage’s date with death. The Moon/Ascendant conjunction may be something, or it may be nothing: both of them are inconjunct to Pluto. The other inconjunct features Venus and Neptune.
Would you believe that Ahtum Re connected Babbage to Steve Jobs?
Ahtun Re provided another reincarnation pairing which beautifully demonstrates how a soul can reincarnate to continue work initiated in an earlier lifetime. This past-life pairing involves Steve Jobs, one of the founders of Apple Computer, and Charles Babbage, the inventor of the difference engine and the analytical engine.Semkiw, Walter.

Steve Jobs (February 24, 1955 – October 5, 2011)
There’s a similarly posed effect to their portraits, but Babbage was at a more advanced age than Jobs.
That Yod pointing at the Midheaven formed from inconjuncts to Venus and Saturn is interesting. The degrees and minutes for those two planets are exactly the same. The Midheaven is only different by 9′.
Here is where astrology can be the ‘proof’ we need to see if this pairing is accurate or not.
Jobs’ North Node is conjunct Babbage’s ‘fatal’ Saturn and his natal Sun. Jobs’ Ascendant is 3° off Babbage’s ‘fatal’ Venus and 5° of his natal Mars. Babbage’s natal South Node is conjunct Jobs’ natal Moon. And Jobs’ Pluto is opposite Babbage’s natal Pluto. Jobs’ Part of Fortune is conjunct Babbage’s ‘fatal’ Sun/Midheaven conjunction (because of the noon time of death setting). Even Jobs’ Neptune is midway between Babbage’s natal Jupiter/Neptune conjunction in Libra. Finally, Jobs’ Venus is conjunct Babbage’s Moon/Mercury conjunction in Capricorn. Is that enough proof?
From the first computer pioneer to the last, the spirit directing these men has revolutionized our lives.
Compelling stuff Christopher!
