Elon Musk’s first self-funded private spaceflight civilian mission to fly a six day trip to the Moon and (hopefully) back, scheduled tentatively for 2023, has had all eight crew member seats bought by Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa. He’s now in process of interviewing applicants. In future Musk hopes to add Mars to the destination list.
Maezawa, 22 November 1975, is a determined Sun Mercury in late Scorpio; with a pushily confident Jupiter in pro-active Aries opposition Pluto Venus; and Saturn in wannabe-important Leo. His Uranus is square Saturn and trine Mars so he will be keen on experimental projects and appreciate an adrenaline-rush. His background is art and online fashion retail and he is estimated to be worth $2 billion.
Quite what draws him to this lunar folly isn’t clear through his Mercury in Scorpio is on a degree that seems Moon-connected of which more anon. His astrology isn’t looking too crisp towards 2023 with his Pluto in a blocked conjunction to his Sun and tr Pluto inconjunct his Mars in 2023/24 which looks high-risk, logjammed and frustrated.
Musk, 28 June 1971, was born at the start of the decade after the first Moon landings which may have inspired him and his mad-genius inventor brain no doubt latched onto an exciting project. He’s certainly on all-systems go in 2022/23 with tr Pluto sextile his Jupiter and square his Jupiter/Pluto midpoint; though he’ll run into major setbacks and accidents in 2022 with tr Saturn square his Mars in Aquarius with frustrations running into 2023; and disappointments from tr Neptune opposition his Pluto in 2023/24 and insecurity as well as disruptions from tr Uranus square his Mars in 2023. But he appears to live his life at such a pitch of hyper-nerviness with so many strings to his bow it’s impossible to say which will be affected.
What is marginally intriguing astrologically speaking is that the first uncrewed landing on the Moon on 13 September 1959 and the first Apollo (Aldrin/Armstrong) landing 20 July 1969, have Jupiter and Neptune respectively at almost the same degree of late Scorpio – Musk has his Jupiter there as well (conjunct his Solar Arc Uranus this year). And it’s also where Maezawa’s Mercury in Scorpio sits.
Not sure if 25 or 26 degrees Scorpio have a great significance but is intriguing.
Thanks for intriguing input on this degree from

“Bearing within you something vast, wild and true. Your instincts given over to this seed. What can be, must be, impels sacrifice and renunciation. Being held in the grip of vast primordial forces. Taken over by depths that forge new worlds into being. Stunned into submission. Unconsciously obsessed with something that lives within you and cannot be forgotten, supercharged with energy, in tune with Earth’s cycles. Everything happening in a magnified and hypnotic atmosphere. The hidden worlds take charge, individuality is eclipsed and the surge of power dominates consciousness and life by its intensity and ruthless current right through the body, and there’s nothing to say about it.’
Jane: 25 Scorpio falls in the constellation Hercules, with Marsik at 25 Scorpio. Manilius said about “Hercules” in the 1st century AD: “….will inspire him with enthusiasm for risky callings, with danger the price, for which he will sell his talents: daring narrow steps on a path without thickness, he will plant firm feet on a horizontal tightrope; then, as he attempts an upward route to heaven, (on a sloping tightrope) he will all but lose his footing and, suspended in mid-air, he will keep a multitude in suspense upon himself” [Manilius, Astronomica, 1st century, AD, p.353.
