MASTER MIND

He was born on June 23 1912 at 2.15 am in Warrington Crescent, Maida Vale, London. A blue plaque marks the birthplace. It says Alan Turing 1912 – 1954. Codebreaker and pioneer of computer science was born here. He was a man who would change the world, and arguably do more to save Great Britain from defeat during WWII than any other individual.

Genius is a rare commodity. It shows the ability to think outside the square. Originality is astrologically linked to Uranus, the planet often dubbed the Great Awakener. The brilliance of Einstein may be connected to a prominent Uranus as his focal planet, situated in the astrological house of the mind in his birth horoscope. Uranus was also alone and placed at the very top of Alan Turing’s birth chart.

Individuals born with planets exactly on angles, tend to exhibit the quality of these planets powerfully in their lives. Two potent examples of this are Edward Snowden and Bob Dylan, born with Mercury the messenger rising and setting respectively, in the information sign of Gemini, which it rules. Dylan wrote and delivered message songs. Snowden revealed the most important message of all regarding global communication.

BORN TO DIFFERENCE

But it wasn’t only Uranus on one angle that played a pivotal role in Turing’s chart. He had fortunate Jupiter on another – it was setting at his birth. The condition of two planets on separate angles - rising, setting or culminating - is known under the ancient Greek term of ‘paranatellonta’, generally shortened to paran. A paran is one of the most powerful indicators in delineating a horoscope.

The guru planet Jupiter and the originality of Uranus incites an unquenchable thirst for knowledge. It is the signature of technological breakthroughs and scientific invention. Alan Turing was born with the planetary gift for science and invention. His Uranus was also nicely angled, via an opportunistic trine to logical Saturn, a planet statistically linked to research scientists, and those capable of carrying out painstaking mental work.

An early clue to Turing’s obsession occurred on his first day at Sherborne high school, aged thirteen. It was during the 1926 General Strike in England. Undeterred, Turing rode his bicycle 97 kilometers to ensure he started on time. Throughout his life he would maintain his bike riding and fitness, often running marathon distances as well.

His school demeanor however did not adhere him to teachers, as his interest was science rather than a classical education. He gained first class honors in mathematics from Cambridge. As a teenager he understood the laws of Einstein before having fully read them.

BIRTH OF THE MODERN COMPUTER

By 1935/36 Turing’s progressed Sun had reached a conjunction with Neptune, the planet of invisible connections. Neptune is prominent in horoscopes of the development of the modern Internet and World Wide Web, along with computing. By now Turing’s Ascendant had also progressed to the union of his expressive Sun and deep thinking Pluto, bringing him to scientific prominence.

On May 28 1936 Turing submitted a groundbreaking paper ‘On Computable Numbers’. This thesis laid the platform for the modern computer. He went on to receive his PhD from Princeton University in the June of 1938 with his status bearing Midheaven trine the approval planet of Venus.

By 1938 Turing was also studying cryptology and in the September of the same year started working for British intelligence as a code breaker. It was his brilliance in this field, especially during WWII, that would prove so vital to Great Britain’s defense.

BREAKING THE ENIGMA

Polish scientists had deciphered the early German ‘Enigma’ codes and shared this breakthrough with the British. But as the codes changed and became increasingly complicated it was left to people like Turing, at the coalface of Britain’s secret “Ultra’ program to stay one step ahead.

He laid the blueprint for sophisticated codebreaking computers. This work was said to have shortened WWII by two years. In the words of wartime leader Winston Churchill, "It was thanks to Ultra that we won the war.”

Turing’s papers on deciphering the German Enigma code were top secret, so much so that they were not released until April of 2012. After the war, he continued his experimental work with artificial intelligence and further investigated the Fibonacci number sequence in the formation of plant species.

Despite Turing’s colossal contribution to the security of his homeland and the new field of computers, it was a break in of his own home that led to his demise. On January 23 1952 Turing’s house was burgled by a 19-year-old unemployed man named Alan Murray.

THE PRICE OF DIFFERENCE

During the police investigation Turing admitted to previously having had prior sexual relations with Murray. At this time Turing’s progressed Venus had come to join Mars, often the signature of a relationship. Both were convicted under the Criminal Law Amendment Act of 1885. Turing, rather than trying to defend himself, was openly truthful about his sexual orientation.

While Murray was given a conditional discharge, Turing was found guilty and offered a year’s prison, or hormonal treatment for his ‘condition’. He took the latter and was rendered impotent. Turing’s security clearance was removed and cryptography work ceased. He was also barred from entering the USA. The man who had helped save Britain was now considered a security risk.

THE POISONED APPLE

On June 8 1954 Turing’s cleaner discovered him dead at his home. The official verdict was cyanide poisoning through eating a poisoned apple. Stories circulated of Turing’s fascination with the tale of Snow White and the wicked witch who dips an apple into poison. An inquest returned a finding of suicide.

The Apple story is so attached to Turing’s death that Steven Jobs was even questioned as to whether it inspired him to name his own computer firm Apple, in honor of Turing. Jobs claimed it was pure coincidence.

The astrological indications around Turing’s death (the feeling Moon in hard aspect to Saturn and itself) support his feelings of isolation, even though stories abound that he handled it all with grace and just got on with his work. People don’t suicide because they are happy. But with Jupiter passing over his Sun and Saturn also in trine, Turing may have seen suicide as a final ‘release’.

CYCLE OF JUSTICE

It’s been 60 years since Jupiter, the planet associated with justice, formed a trine back to judgmental Saturn in lethal Scorpio, as they did on the day back in 1954 when Alan Turing died. But in late 2013 they returned to the same formation and in the same signs. It was the heavenly time for justice to be reviewed.

On Christmas Eve 2013, following the urging of prominent scientists, thousands of petitioned signatures and public pressure, Alan Turing was granted a formal pardon from Queen Elizabeth. The man most Britons rate as one of the most important of all was finally cleared.

Alan Turing was only 41 when he took his life. He was at his mid-life Uranus opposition point. Uranus, the planet of uniqueness, eccentricity, genius and difference. It played a starring role in his uniquely gifted life.

Taurus or Taurus Rising: A week where a little effort goes a long way, especially midweek. From the 22nd Mercury and Jupiter, your two financial rulers, unite in an encouraging angle to your sign. It can bring added advantages associated with your assets and financial dealings, especially for Taureans born late in the sign, around May 18. A good time to look at pooling resources, as others may come on board to complement your plans. Time to make your pitch with the universal attraction pulling harder in your direction. To look at your own personal chart, organise a Skype and/or personal consultation with Ed Tamplin. Click here for details. Top

Gemini or Gemini Rising: Serious Saturn is bringing a determined practicality to your relationships. They either cut it or get the cut. It doesn’t have to be a dog eat dog world out there, but you’re not taking chances. This is about reliability, and honoring the promise. And it’s not all bad either as even rivals provide added incentive for you now. The combination of Mars and Saturn is bringing important decisions involving those around you. Doubly so, if your birthday falls late May. To look at your own personal chart, organise a Skype and or personal consultation with Ed Tamplin. Click here for details. Top

Cancer or Cancer Rising: From the 22nd brainchild Mercury meets expansive Jupiter and Venus will join this fortuitous combination by this time next week. This puts an extremely positive spin on all correspondence, writings and legal affairs. For Cancers born late in the sign, the last week of August can synch with a reunion or important catch up with loved ones. It’s also a productive time to sort through any contracts – everything from phone plans to energy agreements or website hosting and design.

Leo or Leo Rising: During August you have had mercenary Mercury, valuable Venus and optimistic Jupiter all in your house of wealth. Before you ask – then where is it – think about your life values for a moment. That’s normally what you surround yourself with. They naturally differ according to the individual. But chances are you’re currently discovering just where – and who - your true supports are. Moneywise, purchases and investments made very recently or in the coming week can also factor importantly in your future.

Virgo or Virgo Rising: You’re entering one of the most promising times of the year. The combination of connective Mercury, your sign ruler, with Jupiter, your partnership ruler, is putting a positive spin on partnerships. It can also deliver benefits through legal dealings, travel or educational matters. The resourceful Sun moving into Virgo by the 23rd is bringing you out of the shadows and providing an energy pick up. It’s all systems go and even moreso for birthdays around September 19.

Libra or Libra Rising: ‘There is a pleasure in these pathless woods, there is a rapture on the lonely shore, there is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea and music in its roar’. How well you might relate to the pensive words of the poet Lord Byron. Take some time to commune with the greater universe this week. Allow your mind to reflectively wander. Enough to let go of the immediate pressing moment. You are about to experience something on a higher level but only if you clear the clutter first.

Scorpio or Scorpio Rising: You learnt long ago that there was no such thing as a free lunch. Now you’re more concerned about the price of it. Well –it’s the price of everything really. No wonder we feel like hamsters on the wheel. Right now that combination of impulsive Mars with reality brick Saturn will make a credit card look like a life sentence. It can also be the incentive to better money management. But meanwhile some friends may be shouting the lunch this week.

Sagittarius or Sagittarius Rising: When explosive Mars meets resistant Saturn it can be like putting a cannonball through a wall. But that’s probably not the smartest tactic. The wisest way to harness this combination is in a well-structured attack. The motivation of Mars combined with the realistic patience of Saturn is providing added endurance. Don’t expect instant results but you should be able to shift some stubborn situations and get some real progress happening here.

Capricorn or Capricorn Rising: If there’s one message you’ve been getting constantly, it’s that you might have the best angling gear and know the best fishing spot, but it’s always a fruitless exercise when you pick the wrong moment. Life is like great comedy – all in the timing. So get set! Midweek could find you getting a few takers on your line. There can also be a first time feel about something here. Don’t let that put you off. Opportunity and experience don’t always dance together. You’ll learn by the doing. Look at your own future prospects astrologically for the years ahead, organize a phone or personal consultation with Ed Tamplin Click here for details. Top

Aquarius or Aquarius Rising: When planets spotlight the traditional house of death in your solar chart you don’t have to dress in black. They’re just hinting, usually in a none to subtle way, that the jig is up on something. It’s time to try a different tack before burnout. And this is also your legacy zone, where all your good karma and earnest efforts may come to roost. The catch is you have to surrender something to claim the benefit. There is a trade-off involved, but the rewards are surely worth the sacrifice. To look at your own future prospects astrologically for 2016 -2016, organise a phone or personal consultation with Ed. Click here for details. Top

Pisces or Pisces Rising: Throughout August, your relationship ruler, Mercury, has been moving through your partnership house. It’s gradually opening new lines of communication and putting you right into the loop. This week conversational Mercury joins opportune Jupiter. It may be bringing some alliances out of the woodwork, or providing fresh connections with expansive ideas. The Sun also spotlights your house of partners from the 23rd. At times you may feel like a switchboard on overdrive. Appointments, advisors and alliances now take on an added significance.
