Elon Reeve Musk is a business magnate and investor. He is the founder, CEO and chief engineer of SpaceX; angel investor, CEO and product architect of Tesla, Inc.; founder of The Boring Company; co-founder of Neuralink and Open AI; president of the Musk Foundation; and owner and CEO of Twitter, Inc. With an estimated net worth of around $181 billion as of November 18, 2022, Musk is the wealthiest person in the world, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index and Forbes’s real-time billionaires list.

As per various websites on the internet, he was born on June 28, 1971 in Pretoria, South Africa. While his birth time is not available in public record. I have taken a bold attempt to guess his birth time based on data available in the public domain. Time can be taken around 12:07 noon. Birth chart based on this (assumed) birth time.

Chart 225

This chart has very powerful raja yogas and dhan yogas sufficient enough to make him the Wealthiest Person on planet.

Panchang Analysis

Chart 226

The natives born on Shashthi tithi love to steal the spotlight, and resist giving others their chance therein. We know Elon likes to be in the limelight and he is very active on social media. He has over 100 million followers on Twitter as of June 2022 Winning is more important to him. He wants to take big initiatives and wants to lead, rule, govern. He is very ambitious and he wants to do things to “change the world”

With the Shashthi tithi, he gets Aries and Leo signs as Dadgha rashis. Aries is the personality of a native, it is known that he has a rather eccentric nature. After acquiring Twitter, he fired a lot of top executives causing much pain and grief. Leo is the natural sign for children, unfortunately his first biological child died when he was just 10 weeks old.

Chart 227

He was born on Monday which is ruled by Moon. Moon is a planet of emotions, he was given to emotions. Moon is in the 12th house which made him reserved and introverted during his childhood days.

Chart 228

He is born during Siddhi yoga, which means he is here to achieve. Yogi planet Mars is exalted hence his achievements will be higher. Siddhi means success. No doubt he is successful in many ways. Natives born in Siddhi yoga are skilled and accomplished in multiple areas in life. Elon is a business magnate with companies in Social Media (Twitter), Car manufacturing (Tesla), Space travel (SpaceX), Artificial Intelligence (Open AI) and several others.

Chart 229

Kaulav means born in a noble family. These people feel they belong to the aristocracy and will try to be at the top of their profession. They are adventurous, good, free thinking, popular, well spoken and sensual. 

Chart 230

Purva Phalguni nakshatra is ruled by Venus. Ruling deity is Bhaga who rules over all types of conjugal bliss, contracts, commitments, etc. P Phalguni indicates creative arts, he studied arts and can be considered creative. Indicates a healthy body but impulsive mind which leads to regrettable actions.

“Natives with key planets in Purva Phalguni will always have issues with eyes like eye sight may be weak, eye infection, night blindness, color blindness, native’s eye glasses are often broken/lost etc. This is on a physical plane. On a mental plane, it would indicate such natives would be blinded mentally in some way or another. They may have an illusion regarding something, they may trust someone blindly, even in light of facts they are not able to see things clearly etc. This is especially true in case of affliction.”

  • From Author’s book “Predicting through Nakshatra Part 2”, Technique 8 (Nakshatra study 86) Purva Phalguni & Blindness

“During the show, Musk noted that because of Asperger’s, he would not make eye contact with his cast. People with Asperger’s are often known to have difficulty with social interaction but have normal or above normal intelligence.” (Reference #1)

Chart 231

(Note: Planets close to Mrityubhag degrees are marked in circle)

Asperger’s Syndrome

Musk has a medical condition called as Asperger’s syndrome. “Asperger’s Syndrome, a form of Autism Spectrum Disorder, is a developmental disorder. Young people with Asperger’s Syndrome have a difficult time relating to others socially and their behavior and thinking patterns can be rigid and repetitive.” (see reference #2)

For this condition to exist in a native, his/her Mercury has to be afflicted as mercury related to mental abilities. In the chart of Elon Musk, his Mercury is in its own sign but conjunct with the Sun and in paap-katari yoga with Ketu and Saturn on its either side. Also note that 5H has exalted Mars and Rahu. Both can be considered as natural and functional malefic in his chart. But note that Mars is Yogi and exalted which gave him extraordinary intelligence. He received scholarship during his college days at Queen’s university and was given admission into University of Pennsylvania.
