We explore the life and times of the super-genius Nicola Tesla, and take a quick glance at his horoscope as well.

His early life

Nicola Tesla was born in the little village of Smiljan, Croatia, just outside Gospic, on July 10, 1856. His father was an orthodox priest. As a very young boy Nikola would see things no one else could: flashes of light that interfered with his vision; when a word was spoken he would see objects so clearly that he had trouble distinguishing between the imagined and the real; in later years he would build a machine in his mind, run it to see where it was flawed, and make the repairs and adjustments necessary to get it to run right - all before construction even began. He could picture a finished product without adjustmernts, drawings, models or experiments. His imagination boundless, he created such innovations as a low-friction finless waterwheel andf a motor driven by June Bugs.

Education, early career

Tesla wanted to bercome an engineer, and he enrolled at the Technical University at Graz, Austria, and the University of Prague. Trying to cram two years of study into one, studying nineteen hours a day and sleeping only two, he suffered a severe nervous breakdown. During the malady he saw many phenomena. His vision and hearing intensified beyond any normal human capacity. The intensity of these visions increased with time, and he could sense objects in the dark the same way as bats. His sensitivity was so acute that words would morph into images. According to astro.com..."flashes of light that he had seen as a kid now filled the air around him with tongues of living flame. Their intensity, instead of diminishing, increased with time and seemingly attained a maximum when he was about twenty-five. His responses were so keenly tuned that a word would become an image that he could feel and taste. It was during this time that he had one of his most famous ideas, that of the rotating magnetic field and alternating current induction motor."

Career

Tesla began his career working as a technical engineer with the Central Telegraph Office in Budapest, Hungary in 1881. and he went to work the following year in Paris for the Continental Edison Company. After work hours during 1883 he constructed his first induction motor. Tesla had a photographic memory and memorized every book he ever read.

In 1884 Nikola Tesla emigrated to America, arriving with but four cents in his pocket. He found employment immediately with Thomas Edison, but the two soon became rivals - Edison being an advocate of the vastly inferior DC power transmission system. For the rest of his life, Tesla would have great difficulty securing funding for his inventions because most financiers were in Edison's corner. He and Edison went their separate ways within a year, but during that time Tesla was commissioned with the design of the AC generators installed at Niagra Falls, New York. In May, 1885 George Westinghouse purchased the patents to his induction motor, his polyphase system of alternating-current dynamos, transformers and motors and made this the basis of the Westinghouse power system which still underlies the modern electrical power system today. When George Westinghouse found that he could not afford to pay Tesla his due of twelve million dollars, Tesla tore up the contract because he wanted the American people to have the benefit of financially attainable electricity. Paradoxically, Tesla made his first million before he was forty. He was handsome, charming and elegant, cutting a fine figure in New Yoerk's high society. He was New York's most talked-about and eligible bachelor, the "catch" of New York society, but he remained a bachelor - a virgin in fact - all of his life, unmarried and a misanthrope.

Later career

In 1886 Tesla formed his own company, Tesla Electric Light and Manufacturing, but his initial investors disagreed with his choice of alternating current and soon withdrew their funding and relieved him of his duties. Now broke, Tesla worked as a laborer for two years to raise enough capital for his next venture.. In 1887, he constructed the first brushless alternating current induction motor, which he demonstrated to the American Insitute of Electrical Engineers, in 1888. That same year he developed the principles of his Tesla Coil, and began working at Westinghouse Electric & Manufacturing Company's Pittsburgh labs.

Tesla demonstrated wireless energy transmission as early as 1891, and the Tesla effect is a term for an application of this type of electrical conduction - movement of energy through matter and space, not just the production opf volatge across a conductor (wikipedia).

The end

NikolaTesla was nominated for the Nobel Prize on many occasions, but he never received a single one. Tesla died January 7th, 1943, from heart thrombosis. All his pallbearers were Nobel Prize winners. Eleanor Roosevelt sent condolences.

Soon after his death, all of Tesla's papers were impounded by the United States' Alien Property Custodian Office. His papers had been declared top secret, and all of his personal effects were sequestered on the advice of presidential advisors. It is reported that eighty trunks containing plans for his experiments were confiscated, along with 75 crates, and the Navy spent two days microfilming every page. His work is now sealed permanently somewhere in the bowels of the FBI building in Washington, D. C., having been ordered there by J. Edgar Hoover. Had this not been done, we might be living today with free energy. There is no telling the wonderful secrets, whicjh if unlocked, could make all of our lives so much easier on this planet.

Tesla's horoscope

With Uranus, the planet of genius, invention and innovation, residing exactly on the cusp of his first house or ascendant, Nikola Tesla was truly one-of-a-kind. The world will certainly never see his likes again.

His Sun-Venus conjunction in the third house of the conscious mind reveals his love (Venus) of knowledge (third house), and the square from this conjunction to the Moon-Mars conjunction in the intellectual sign Libra in the hard-working sixth house shows his deep psychological need (Moon), as well as the enormous amount of energy (Mars) he had at his disposal to pursue knowledge.

The close trine between his Sun in the water sign Cancer and Neptune in its own sign Pisces shows his intense psychic sensitivity and the unfettered flow of his wild imagination. This is what allowed him to 'see' his ideas take concrete form in his mind's vision.

This hoproscope fairly reeks of Tesla's distrust of and contempt for women, which is seen in the Sun-Venus conjunction's square to the Moon-Mars conjunction. Women (Moon and Venus) are despised (Mars).

Nikola Tesla's Jupiter and Pluto in the twelfth house allowed him to see into the transcendent realms (twelfth house) and easily bring what he observed there into his conscious mind. Pluto, of course, takes everything it touches to extremes, so Tesla was able to 'tune into' the riches of his own imaginal self with consummate ease.

What a darn interesting read and of course a very interesting man. I watched a show about a month ago on electricity and those involved with the founding of it all through the centuries. They never really touched that much on Telsa and now I know why, the gubmint has locked all of his work in a vault, figures. A very fascinating read my friend. Of course it is well written, I expect no less from you. As always, thank you for sharing.:)

He sure was a gifted human being comparable to Albert Einstein. The big question is, why did the US government confiscated his scientific writings after he died. Surely a big loss to the world.
