About Steve Jobs

Steve jobs was a popular entrepreneur, inventor, and co-founder and CEO of Apple Inc. His creativity revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing. He developed a line of products that had larger cultural ramifications: the iMac, iTunes, Apple Stores, the iPod, the iTunes Store, the iPhone, the App Store, and the iPad.

For the present topic of interest, let me primarily focus on analyzing some of the unique astrological combinations in his horoscope.

Steve Jobs birth details and horoscope

Birth details: Born on 24th February 1955, 7.15 PM(LMT), San Francisco, USA.

For those who are unfamiliar, let me quickly explain how to read this chart in Vedic style. The “Asc” in the chart (South Indian style chart) is the ascendant sign which should be considered the first house for this chart. Now count clockwise from “Asc” to find the planetary placement. The “Asc” represents the 1st house, Saturn occupies the 3rd house, Venus and Rahu occupies 5th house, Mercury occupies 6th house, Sun occupies 7th house, Moon occupies 8th house, Mars occupies 9th house, Jupiter & Ketu occupies the 11th house.

In Vedic astrology, there is also a concept called Chandra Lagna, meaning considering Moon as the ascendant sign. In this chart, if we consider Moon as the ascendant Sign, then Moon occupies the 1st house, Mars occupies the 2nd house, Jupiter & Ketu occupies 4th house, the Saturn occupies the 8th house, the Venus & Rahu occupies the 10th house, Mercury occupies the 11th house, the Sun occupies the 12th house.

Where the unique creativity comes from

In astrology, Venus is the artistic planet and the 5th house rules creativity. Venus being the 10th lord (which rules profession) occupying the 5th house, powerfully aspected by Jupiter and Saturn, made Steve Jobs very artistic in nature. Venus’ conjunction with Rahu in 5th house made him create breakthrough electronic gadgets. Venus rules the entertainment field, so the strong Venus in Jobs’ horoscope is seen in his involvement in Pixar Animation Studios and producing several animation movies.

Why he created creative communication devices

The third house rules communication. Third lord Venus is very strong and the third house is occupied by exalted Saturn. Also from Chandra Lagna, the third lord Venus occupies the 10th house with a powerful aspect from Saturn and Jupiter. Notice the deposition of Mercury (planet for communication) in the 11th house from Chandra Lagna.

Some Important Events

School period: Though 4th lord Mars is well placed, Mercury occupying the 6th house with Papakartari Yoga (a planet or house that is hemmed between two malefics). During Mercury dasa, Jobs was suspended from school a few times and he had a tough time adapting to the traditional classroom setting.

Pre-apple: During Ketu dasa (1976-1983) Jobs had a tough time maintaining his relationships and he traveled to India in the search of meaning. He lived a simple life during this period and become a practitioner of Zen Buddhism.

Apple Period: Venus dasa (1983-2003) was the most precious period for Jobs. Most of his creativity came out during this period. At Apple’s annual shareholders meeting on January 24, 1984, an emotional Jobs introduced the Macintosh to a wildly enthusiastic audience. Sun is a natural enemy for Venus, during Sun sub-period he was asked to quit Apple and started NeXT Inc. During his Saturn sub period, Apple announced it was buying NeXT and he again became CEO of Apple.

Important Raja Yogas

The Jupiter and Moon Kendra to each other creating powerful Gajakesari Yoga, the Venus (natural benefic) and the planet of creativity occupying 10th house from Moon creates powerful Amala Yoga. The natural benefic Venus and Mercury occupying the 6th house and 7th house respectively creates partial Lagnadhi yoga.

His Tragic Ending

In October 2003, Jobs was diagnosed with cancer and in mid-2004, he announced to his employees that he had a cancerous tumor in his pancreas. On January 14, 2009, Jobs wrote in an internal Apple memo that in the previous week he had “learned that my health-related issues are more complex than I originally thought”. He announced a six-month leave of absence until the end of June 2009, to allow him to better focus on his health.

Coming to astrological part, mark the powerful aspect of the sign Cancer by top-rated malefic planets Mars and Saturn (Mars and Saturn are natural Roha Karaha and Roha Bhavathipathi respectively) and the lord of Cancer moon placed in 8th house with Papakartari Yoga gives the clue for this life-threatening disease. Sun being the ascendant lord, the aspecting ascendant made him go through liver transplant successfully. However, during Moon dasa (2009-2019) his journey came to end because of the Moon occupying the 8th house and being severely afflicted by Papakartari Yoga.


The astrological combinations in Steve Jobs horoscope is an epitome for a highly creative person. Venus powerfully placed in 5th house and 5th lord well placed in 11th house aspecting 5th house, with the 9th lord Mars occupying its own house and powerfully aspected by exalted Saturn. In addition to this Powerful Gajakesari Yoga, Amala Yoga and partial Lagnadhi Yoga made him famous artistic creator.
