Leonardo da Vinci was an amazing Italian Renaissance polymath: painter, sculptor, architect, musician, scientist, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist, and writer. and that is just scratching the surface…
He conceptualized a helicopter, a tank, concentrated solar power, a calculator, the double hull and outlined a rudimentary theory of plate tectonics, and drew one of the first scientific drawings of a fetus in utero. (wiki)
Taurus Sun with Toro Venus in applying trine to Neptune in Libra at MC, genius creative expression ! Sagittarius rising – expressive and expansive – Jupiter is in Pisces 3rd of learning conjunct Moon.
Aquarius Mars trine Saturn exalted in Libra 10th: Leonardo was an idea machine – invent, conceptualize, research, sketch, design and build futuristic machinery.
The illustration below seemed appropriate for the Uranus, Pluto, Venus T-square.
Freaky drawing of coffin contraption with gyroscope ! ?
Dunno, is weird and fascinating whatever it is.
Eighth house Pluto and Uranus – highly observant – he learned anatomy in detail through dissecting cadavers (Venus quintile Pluto). He drew detailed bone studies, and the pregnancy drawing you see above, as well as detailed drawings of architecture, water devices, animals, faces of rage, deformities, and machines of his own design.
Saturn in 10 wants to know how everything works, Neptune at MC absorbs the world like a sponge. Neptune and Saturn in 10 are both opposite Aries Mercury in 4. Mercury trines Leo Pluto – he certainly changed the world through creative expression.
Curiously, most of Leonardo’s writings are in mirror-image cursive, perhaps it was easier because he was left-handed, or maybe it was for reasons of secrecy, perhaps both, no one knows.
As you can see, his drawings and sketches were extremely detailed and highly researched – Virgo precision at MC and Aries Mercury in trine to Pluto in Leo.
The animation above delineates the sacred geometry of the golden rectangle, which is more easily seen in colored portions below.
Da Vinci and others (including the architect Palladio) helped to revive this knowledge of sacred geometry and its application after the so-called “Dark Ages.”
Apart from the monks in Ireland, most of the older knowledge was preserved by Arabic culture that translated older Greek and Roman works into Arabic. These works were retranslated back into Latin and other European languages by scholars working in cross-cultural universities in renaissance Spain.
You can see above the geometry da Vinci applied to sketching human faces. Obviously mirror image writing and building with polarities (Uranus sextile Venus in 6th) appealed with Mars in Aquarius in trine to Saturn in the tenth of achievement.
This mathematical precision (sacred geometry) is applied to Mona Lisa below, I am sure there is another for the Last Supper floating around as well. I will look, pop into comments.
Which brings me to the point of this post.
Mercury is numbers, counting, perceptions.
Saturn is mathematics.
(traditional ruler of the fixed sign Aquarius)
is form and matter – the building blocks – earth plane..
Uranus is the higher octave of numbers, counting and perceptions.
Uranus is spirals.
The geometric electrical energy grid that connects all life on earth.
Which leads me to believe Uranus rules sacred geometry as well as Saturn.
Thoughts . . .?
A fun morph.
Leonardo is asteroid 3000.
Da Vinci has it exact conjunct North Node in Capricorn.
Consider Leonardo your renaissance point !
Currently Leonardo is at 10 Cancer.
Dark Moon in Cancer is at 10 degrees as I write this !
Interesting it is dovetailing into the renaissance T- Square Action, yes ?
Venus will soon follow to conjunct – she is at 6 Cancer.
Just in case I haven’t pitched you enough science yet…
If you want some
to chew on awhile – here’s a porterhouse steak, pack a blade – it’s a biggie !
