More on Ueshiba Osensei's Astrology
So let us move onto more of Ueshiba Osensei's birth chart, focusing on his fixed planets at birth. His Mercury and Venus were both in the sign of Capricorn. This means he was sobre, goal oriented, and had a pragmatic side. He was clear and rational. Disciplined in his thinking. He could get unemotional.
His Jupiter was along with his Mars in the sign of Leo. That means he was expansive. Had a big sense of things. Bold.
His Saturn was in the sign of Gemini. This means he was a very hard worker(cutting all those trees down in Hokkaido, organizing the fire brigade in Ayabe, farming and raising not only food for himself in Iwama during the war, but sending the surplus to feed the hungry in Tokyo). Very Serious about things. Studious and bookish(also highlighted by his moon in Gemini). An example of a planet transit is that Saturn every 29 years returns to it's original place on your birth chart. This usually signifies important events in one's life. At 29 Osensei left to help colonize Hokkaido.
His Uranus was in the sign of Virgo. This means he had an original approach to work and at the same time brought very practical ideas. He was obviously a good teacher. People with this in their chart are builders(creating a unique martial art), inventive, humane. Others with their Uranus in Virgo are Harry Truman and Albert Einstein. This can also mean erratic health problems, which did indeed plague Ueshiba Osensei.
His Neptune was in Taurus. He was very practical. It is interesting that this also confers a tendency to be stuck on money and possessions. Others with Neptune in Taurus are Albert Schweitzer, Isadora Duncan, and Herbert Hoover. Obviously he transcended this limitation as he was definitely not stuck on money and possessions.
His Pluto(planet of power) was also in the sign of Taurus. He was driven by the need to do and build things. Others with this planetary alignment: Hearst, Taft, Lenin, Adler, and Van Gogh.
The next blog will focus on what he had to overcome to fulfill his mission as Ueshiba of Aikido. I including a video done earlier at the Hongu grand shrine located in the Shingu area:
