Entrepreneur Elon Musk, currently the richest person in the world, is super-Uranian so naturally, his reputation fluctuates quite radically. It swings between “rockets, Tesla, genius, loaded, Robert Downey Jr’s Iron Man was based on him” and “unhinged, exploitative lithium miner, not actually profitable, etc.”
Regardless of whether or not you’re a fan, Musk is undisputably a role model for success without traditional education and a brilliant case study of a Uranian. His Uranus in Libra squares his Cancerian Sun + Mercury, opposes his Midheaven, and trines his Mars + Node in Aquarius. He’s Gemini Rising so Mercury is his ruler btw, emphasizing the strength of the Uranian aspect.
Uranian People Are Genuinely Unpredictable
He has two of the core Uranus trait indicators: he is consistently a Grudge Flashpoint to at least one significant body of people and he is genuinely unpredictable – with just one exception. His love life.
Musk has Venus in gamine Gemini in the 12th house, the subliminal sector. If Venus signs and houses were love potions, this formula would be written in plasma-rendered Akkadian cuneiform – one part paranormal pin-up, one part neurodivergent nymph, and one part It Girl of the moment.
Space Tourism Fuqs Your Telomeres
The latter would not seem to fit with the privacy-craving 12th house Venusian Vibe but it actually does: He likes games, mystery and decoding things and his Mars in Aquarius is hot for distance.
Being officially together but they’re elsewhere is an aphrodisiac for his airy Mars-Venus trine. Sitting up late at night coding with one of the screens showing your It-Girly love interest arriving at a premiere IS Uranian intimacy. It’s also a very fresh billionaire power play to one-up your peers: luxury bunkers in Fiordland are so 2015 and space tourism fuqs your telomeres.
As you will see below, Elon’s partners to date have all been brilliant examples of the Venus in Gemini/the 12th house vibe.
Aside from their erotic currency/official sex appeal, they’ve been witty, mercurial, eccentric and controversial. They become incrementally younger as he ages – his first wife was born in 1972, a year after him and his most recent girlfriend is a 1990s model. The penchant for younger partners is very Venus in Gemini: even if age is immaterial, some would secretly prefer to indefinitely adopt a teenage ‘let’s just hang out’ style of dating.
Elon Musk Was Raised By An It-Girl
It is also classically patriarchal. See Leonardo DiCaprio, Mick Jagger and several hundred thousand other examples. Of course, when a female celebrity stays single or dates a guy even a couple of years younger, the situation is widely deemed dysfunctional or he is a ‘toy boy.’ When men do the same, it is, biological. Or if you’re in a pompous mood/typing with one hand: the biological imperative.
Having said all that, Elon Musk’s mother – the fascinating Maye Musk – is a Venus in Gemini woman – Venus conjunct Uranus. At 72, she is “euphorically single” and doesn’t like dating because it involves “having to listen to men drone on and on about themselves for hours.” So being raised by an individuated, ahead-of-trend single mother/model would give you a residual affinity with It Girls.
Anyway, Musk’s first wife Justine – his college girlfriend, the mother of most of his children and a Virgo – did not leave the marriage as a massive fan. She said he was part-playboy/part space-cowboy. AKA an 8th house Mars in Aquarius guy.
The author of paranormal thriller-romance novels for young adults, she also wrote a scorcher of a marriage expose called I Was A Starter Wife. Yes, he referred to her as that. Six weeks after they separated, Musk texted to say he was engaged to Talulah Riley, then best known for playing wayward schoolgirl Annabelle in the comedy St Trinians. She went on to more avant-garde roles in Westworld and Inception.
“I Was A Starter Wife”
A Libra, her Sun is conjunct Mercury and Musk’s Uranus: they got married twice. At the launch of her 2016 novel Acts of Love – a work of fiction about a beautiful Englishwoman who has a difficult relationship with a Silicon Valley entrepreneur – Riley said that she would not rule out a third attempt at being Mrs. Musk: “Marriage is a social construct but I believe in it.”
But unbeknown to her at the time, Musk was leveraging up in the It-Girl stakes. He was hooking up with Amber Heard – Hollywood-hot, a triple Taurus (Sun, Venus + Lilith), and Aquaman‘s Atlantean Queen. Dating a Marvel star would thrill anyone’s inner comic-book nerd, right?
But most appealingly to a Uranian guy – Amber had a high-drama storm of notoriety and legit controversy swirling around her. She was breaking up with Johnny Depp in what became one of the most lurid and acrimonious celebrity divorces on record and facing ‘animal smuggling’ charges in Australia over her pet dogs.
Amber Heard Outweirded Him
Another ex – Taurean photographer and artist Tasya Van Ree, stepped up to explain Amber’s arrest for domestic violence against her (homophobia, she said) and it transpired her and Amber had been secretly married. Despite a separation agreement and a judge finding that the bulk of Heard’s domestic violence allegations against Depp were proven, he sued her for defamation, and incidentally, that is still not settled – it’s back in court this April.
Elon Musk and Amber Heard broke up because of their “conflicting schedules” although there were tabloid allegations that Heard thought Musk was too controlling and that he’d bugged the Tesla he gave her. She has Uranus in Saggo trine her North Node and quincunx her Venus-Lilith. She may have outweirded him.
He said his heart was broken, she said they would always be close and then along came the musician/artist Grimes, an extremely Neptunian Piscean. Read on for more on that particular weirding.
Grimes has Neptune trine her Midheaven/Venus as well as the late millennial generation’s astro-signature: Saturn, Neptune and Uranus in Capricorn. With her ethereal (Scorpio Rising) appearance, pronounced creative process and penchant for surreal costuming, she embodies Musk’s 12th house Gemini Venus.
They met online, evidently connecting on Twitter over an arcane pun and building a rapport from there. He said he admired her “wild fae artistic creativity and hyper intense work ethic.” She was also his first foray into life with a woman who was not only significantly successful before him but had major artistic and commercial cred.
Interestingly, Grimes – known as ‘c’, the symbol for the speed of light, since 2018 – has zero Air and barely any Fire in her birth chart. She is all Earth and Water, mountain and ocean. She occupies a unique niche within the arts/celebrity sphere: partnering with tycoon like Musk was a swerve or, according to many of her fans, a terrifying lapse in judgment/fall from grace/satanic marriage, whatever.
“Wild, fae artistic creativity”
Nonetheless, they had a child together – her first – Musk’s seventh, a boy named X Ae A12. “Pregnancy,” she announced to a magazine in a refreshing departure from standard press protocol, “involves sacrificing your body and your freedom.”
The name, immediately pronounced illegal by Californian authorities, is a composite of X – the unknown quantity, the Elvish spelling of A.I. and the A-12 aircraft. He was born in early May 2020, with the major money signature of Jupiter conjunct Pluto in Capricorn, the same Aquarius Mars as his father and the Sun conjunct Mercury plus Uranus. His first finger painting will probably be a NFT or a hologram.
Grimes and Musk separated in late 2021 – schedules, still close etc – with little explanation but there were weird little Uranian smoke signals in the previous months: Grimes mother, a Crown court prosecutor, apparently spoke out vociferously against Musk’s men’s right Twitter tirade right after her daughter had given birth. Additionally, Grimes was hospitalized for a panic attack after Musk’s debut appearance on Saturday Night Live.
“Possessions are an attack vector”
He also publicly argued with her over the pronounciation of X Ae A12’s name, gave away all his stuff, saying he felt possessions were “kind of an attack vector” and was in more or less constant trouble with various authorities which, billionaire dad or not, would be stressful for a new mother trying to establish herself.
Her song – Player of Games – is apparently about him: “I’m in love with the greatest gamer, but he’ll always love the game more than me.” And later…”Sail away to the cold expanse of space, even love couldn’t keep you in your place.”
Her edgy creativity and ingenuity is more than a match for his but to a person with zero Air in their chart, his Aquarius Mars, Gemini Venus + Ascendant and Libra Uranus would be like a glacial gale. Yes, the lyrics are a play on Musk’s space enterprises but the ‘cold expanse of space’ would also be him, freezing over when he’s won the ‘game.’
The Elvish Spelling Of A.I.
Most recently, Musk has apparently taken up with an Australian actor called Natasha Bassett, best known for playing Britney Spears in Britney Ever After, an unauthorised biopic. Her next role is playing Elvis Presley’s high school girlfriend in the upcoming Baz Luhrmann Elvis biopic. She is a 1992/1994 Libra or a 1997 Capricorn – unbelievably, there are already different birth dates floating about the internet for her. Perhaps she or her representation have figured out that if you’re going to fudge your chronology, it’s best to begin early.
Referring to their “unbelievable chemistry,” Hollywood Life magazine explain that “shortly after his split from Grimes, Natasha started accompanying Elon on his jet while he was taking back and forth work trips to Austin, Texas.”
She may be weirdness in waiting or an epic enigma to tantalize the most jaded Gemini Venusian or perhaps Musk is on a different frequency this year: he has Saturn trine his Venus until 2023. Grimes was his Neptune-Venus square transit btw.
