Here’s more evidence for the theory that people and places are in the news around the time of their birthday. After writing my post below on New Mexico losing the Tesla Motors sedan factory to California, I decided to run a natal chart for the pioneering electric car company.
Guess what? Tesla was born July 1, 2003 in San Carlos, Calif. (There are actually two towns named San Carlos in California. One is near San Diego and the other is outside of San Francisco. Tesla is based in the latter.)
Today is Tesla Motors’ fifth birthday. We don’t have a time of birth, so the chart has been set for noon. Here’s the link, courtesy of Astrodienst.
It’s noteworthy that Tesla, which is manufacturing a 100% electric sportscar, has an electrical Uranus/Mars conjunction in Pisces. It will be interesting to see what happens when Jupiter conjuncts the Uranus/Mars in late January, 2010. Maybe that’s when the first Teslas will hit the road.
The Sun in Cancer is conjunct Mercury and Saturn, which suggests this is a serious endeavor that will most likely encounter obstacles along the way. That doesn’t mean the company won’t be a success. Indeed, there has been considerable management turnover since the company was founded, but this isn’t unusual in a startup.
The July 2 New Moon at 11 degrees of Cancer symbolizes a new start for Tesla Motors. Maybe this has something to do with the tax breaks that California instituted last week for zero emission vehicle manufacturers such as Tesla Motors. (See “Tesla: California’s Gain is New Mexico’s Loss.”)
