Revealing Albert Einstein “Inner Theater Play” Using Astro-Tarology

Version française

We have been asked many times to show with an example how astro-tarology works. So here it is and with none other than Albert Einstein, the legendary genius of our time as the example. His outer life is well documented, but his inner life much less. This article has a triple purpose: (1) To bring a new lighting about Einstein life, (2) To introduce the Astro-Tarology method in a practical way and (3) To show how Astro-Tarology could work to reveal your true identity.

The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination.
Albert Einstein

“The Universal Mother and the Power of Imagination”


Act 1 – Prologue 1 – The Empty Theater


This is a theater in the round. Its stage is divided into 12 sceneries, each one being ruled by a corresponding occupant. Sceneries are numbered from 1 to 12 counter-clockwise starting with the warrior in red background as scenery number 1 to the left. Sceneries occupants will only show up when other actors are interacting with them. For now there are no actors or actresses. The stage is empty.

Act 1 – Prologue 2 – Einstein Natal Sky

Albert Einstein was born on March 14, 1879 at 11:30 in Ulm, Germany

Natal charts cannot be read and even less be interpreted by non-astrologers. This is where Astro-Tarology comes in. A natal chart´s glyphs, numbers, lines and circles will be replaced by Astro-Tarology cards (Symbolon deck). All cards are representing people in costumes from another time or space, very rich in symbols and archetypes. They will bring back remembrances of the past, whether repressed, hidden or simply forgotten. Cards are instantly readable by anybody without any previous technical knowledge and are reaching consciousness in the form of an inner theater play.

Act 1 – Scene 1 – Einstein Ascendant – His Existential Dialectic

The Ascendant is the projection of the Eastern horizon on the zodiac belt. It is the direction where the sun and all planets are rising from darkness to light. By analogy, the way we appeared to the world’s light at birth will mark our entire life. When he was born, Einstein Ascendant was in the sign of Cancer.

04-albert-ascendant-mandalaThe sign of Cancer (green glyph above) will now be replaced by the astro-tarologic card titled “The Mother”and placed on the horizontal line representing the horizon. The card shows (1) an universal mother (2) with a stellar diadem (3) holding a child (4) wearing a soft-colored flowery dress (5) and standing up in wavy water (6) on a starry night (7) where the full moon (8) is reflecting its light (9) on the water surface. (10) The golden child (11) presents a golden halo over his head and (12) holds a gold coin in his left hand.

The Curtain Opens – A Narrator Introduces Einstein Existential Dialectic

With the Cancer Ascendant, Einstein emotional experiences are all important and will dominate his life. A shy, sensitive and timid nature made him vulnerable to emotional pain. When he was born, Einstein’s head was so huge and misshapen that his mother thought he was deformed. During his early years he was almost autistic. He only started to speak when he was three and became fluent when he was nine. Later he will become dyslexic. These circumstances originated very likely from his unmet need to live in a happily nurturing family. Whether Einstein unfulfilled family expectations were real or perceived doesn’t make any difference. Because his inner child was suffering, he inhibited his feelings. He was scared by his feminine side and its inherent powerlessness.

Spending countless hours in his imaginary world was just a matter of survival reaction for the young Einstein. Later he will endow others with a sympathetic, idealistic and sensitive nature capable of much emotional warmth. His life was marked by a fertile imagination and fancy, and he will often live the past over again in his mind as well as anticipate the future. Einstein existential dialectic is marked by highly sensitive, emotional and imaginary experiences. This is the theme of Einstein inner theater play that will mark each day of his life.

Act 1 -Scene 2 – Enter the Leading Actor – Einstein Life Theme Manager

Who is the Leading Character?

Now the leading actor is entering the stage. The Ascendant ruler is the Moon. The astro-tarologic card representing the Moon is the same as the Ascendant.


While the Ascendant is represented by the card’s zodiac sign (Cancer), Einstein life theme manager is represented by the card’s planet (Moon). The “Mother” is feminine by nature. Einstein once said that if it wasn’t for his mustache, his face would look like a woman. The leading actor is an actress, she is playing the role of the Universal Mother.

The Mother is the most important archetype because it seems to contain all else. It is the motherly love and warmth which gives us our first identity in the world.
– Carl Jung

The Moon is the ruler of the zodiac sign of Cancer, its symbolism relates to the mother archetype. Like the ocean tidal waters, the Moon is feminine by nature and associated with fecundation, motherhood and childhood. As the young Einstein developed a poor relationship with his parents, he never experienced his mother as a good role model. Later, he will not act as a good “mother” himself. His deep repressed maternal love was then transcended as an universal mother in a broader humanist sense. Now that we know that Einstein leading character is the “Universal Mother”, we will explore where and how she operates in his inner life.

 Where Does the Leading Character Operate?


The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.
– Albert Einstein

The Servant

In Einstein birth sky, the Moon appears in scenery number 6 “Duties”, occupied by the “Servant” who will encourage the “Universal Mother” to be of service to others. He will always find support from others when attention to detail will be in high focus.


The “Universal Mother” and the “Servant” astro-tarologic cards will now combine in a new card that will replace them both. That card is titled “Caring”. Einstein inner child who wants attention is unable to find it in his family life. His practical mind will then direct his sympathy and caring feelings towards a humanistic service to the world.


How Does the Leading Character Operate?

523x523-albert-einstein-photoI believe in Spinoza’s God who reveals himself in the orderly harmony of what exists, not in a God who concerns himself with the fates and actions of human beings.
– Albert Einstein

The Preacher

In Einstein birth sky, the Moon was in the Sagittarius zodiac sign (“Ideology”), to which corresponds the astro-tarologic card of the “Preacher”. So the “Universal Mother” will express herself as a pantheist and non-denominational “Preacher”.

Religion, truth as well as the world of philosophy and ideas are of particular interest. As the Preacher delivers his high views to his followers, so will Einstein. He is the most quoted person of all time on the social networks. Freedom-lover, Einstein is nor particularly bound by relationships neither by a domestic life. He brings his wisdom to the world while living the opposite in his personal life. This paradox would last until he would eventually revisit his past and reconnect with his true identity.


The “Universal Mother” and the “Preacher” astro-tarologic cards will now combine into a new card that will replace them both. That card is titled “Mnemosyne”, the Greek Goddess of Memory. She will link Einstein day and the night as well as his conscious and the unconscious. So, Mnemosyne will be giving him a chance to remember who he really is.


Below is the astro-tarologic summary of Einstein leading actor character. He is the “Universal Mother” (who?) acting in the humanistic field of service (where?) and living his life differently than his own preaching (how?)


Act 1 – Scene 3 – Enter the Supporting Actor
Venus – Lead Actor Sidekick


A brave man, whose only fault was being a woman.
– Albert Einstein

Einstein’s Women

In Einstein birth sky, the Moon makes a trine (angle of 120 degrees) aspect with the planet Venus, the “Lover” who is now entering the stage. She is the “Universal Mother” supporting companion. So far Einstein is overwhelmed with feminine symbols: the Mother, the Servant, Mnemosyne and now the Lover. His early poor relation with his mother didn’t help his adult relationships with women. In fact, he was a ladies’ man and known for his countless infidelities with his two wives.

The trine aspect between the Moon and Venus is considered harmonious. Einstein will find easy to work with arts or whatever is beautiful and genial. He was a violin player. The “Universal Mother” and the “Lover” will get along. In fact, both wives were aware of his infidelities and were looking the other way. The trine aspect will be associated to the already familiar “Preacher”.


The “Preacher” and the the “Lover” astro-tarologic cards will now combine into a new card that will replace them both. That card is titled “Matter and Spirit”. Only after renouncing to material acquisitions, Einstein mind will explore spiritual and scientific new territories from which he will bring his genial theory of relativity.


“Matter and Spirit” is the perfect linking astro-tarologic card between Act 1 (Einstein and the feminine: matter) and Act 2 (Einstein and the masculine: spirit)

Note that each Astro-tarotogic card is very rich in symbols and deserves a particular deepening beyond the limited scope of this article.

Two Opinions About Einstein Personality

Nuclear physicist Robert Oppenheimer summarized his impression about Einstein.

Einstein was almost wholly without sophistication and wholly without worldliness … There was always with him a wonderful purity at once childlike and profoundly stubborn.
– Robert Oppenheimer

But none better than Charlie Chaplin would express Einstein Moon-Sun personality.

Einstein’s outward persona, calm and gentle, seemed to conceal a “highly emotional temperament,” from which came his “extraordinary intellectual energy”
– Charlie Chaplin
