Richard Feynman and Declination Aspects

Scientists are celebrating the anniversary of Richard Feynman's birth on May 11, 1918. Feynman was a CalTech physicist who was famous for curiosity and asking questions. Scientists may celebrate the memory of Feynman's magical abilities, but they are completely in the dark about the source of those abilities. Astrologers who use declinations can see that Feynman was born when Saturn, Neptune, and Pluto were all in parallel to each other at 19 degrees North of the celestial equator. The hard-nosed investigative reporter Mike Wallace of 60 Minutes had abilities similar to Feynman and he shared the same outer planet declination aspects, being born just two days earlier, on May 9, 1918.

listing of planetary declinations for Richard Feynman

Science News writes about Feynman, "It was not curiosity alone that made Feynman a legend. His approach to physics and life incorporated a willful disdain for authority. He regularly disregarded bureaucratic rules, ignored expert opinion and was willing to fearlessly criticize the most eminent of other scientists." These qualities can be found in other people who had the same declination aspects as Feynman, as synthesized in the following interpretations by Halloran.

Neptune parallel Pluto (Orb: 0° 05')
