Mark Zuckerberg

Well it's not Mark Zuckerberg's birthday today but it is the first birthday of his child and as he had pledged to donate 99% of his wealth to charitable causes, he's well deserving of the Growing Pains treatment.

Mark was born on 14 May 1984 (time unknown) in White Plains New York with Jupiter in hard-working Capricorn and Saturn in mysterious Scorpio. His Jupiter is ruled by Saturn in Scorpio and here's what I said in my book:

"These children work towards controlling their learning. They will have an idea of what they want to do from an early age and will be very sure what they need to do to reach their goals because they have researched it so well. Teachers typically find they are engaged in some sort of power struggle with these pupils. Parents usually encourage these children’s ambitions before realising they really don’t need encouragement to be ambitious."

Around the time of his Jupiter return, he began using computers and writing software but was more inclined to design games. As the writer Jose Antonio Vargas noted: "some kids played computer games. Mark created them." 

Mark studied--and received prizes for--Science (Maths, Astronomy and physics) in high school. He was known for his love of the classics and for reciting large parts of The Iliad and other epic poems. He can also read Latin, Hebrew and Ancient Greek. The astrology world needs this guy!!

Of course, it is for Facebook that we know and love him for, launched as Mars transited his natal Mercury and the nodes were on his Venus-Mars opposition--which seems apt for a website like Facebook. The site has been in and out of controversies since its early days at Harvard University and has been central to several lawsuits. Nonetheless, it made Mark a millionaire just in time for his second Jupiter return.

His new baby, a girl called Max, was born last night (announced at 21:08 BST,  according to Wikipedia) as the Sun transited his natal Uranus and Pluto transited his natal Jupiter. In his open letter to his daughter, he wrote:

"Your mother and I don't yet have the words to describe the hope you give us for the future. Your new life is full of promise, and we hope you will be happy and healthy so you can explore it fully. You've already given us a reason to reflect on the world we hope you live in.

Like all parents, we want you to grow up in a world better than ours today.

While headlines often focus on what's wrong, in many ways the world is getting better. Health is improving. Poverty is shrinking. Knowledge is growing. People are connecting. Technological progress in every field means your life should be dramatically better than ours today.

We will do our part to make this happen, not only because we love you, but also because we have a moral responsibility to all children in the next generation."

Such carefully chosen words to beautifully express those transits.

By the way, the new baby has Mars and Venus in Libra opposite Uranus in Aries (good luck with that one kids), the Moon in Leo,  a stellium in Sagittarius, Jupiter in Virgo and Saturn in Sagittarius.  And with the that tight Saturn-Neptune square and the best education money can buy, I have high hopes little Max just might lead the next generation into saving us from mass destruction.

Cheers Mark!

At some point in the near future, Mark just be interested in my research into astrology and education. So, here is my interview with Rod Suskin on the subject:

About the New Book

There are two wolves fighting inside of me, the old story goes, one wolf is good and the other is evil. “But Grandfather,” asked the child, “Which one wins?” The Grandfather answered, “The wolf I feed.”

We might like to think that being good is a natural instinct. In fact, doing the right thing takes a conscious decision. Every day, we are met with temptation to get ahead at the expense of someone else, to get away with something we know is wrong or to cut corners if we think no one is watching.

Following on from her powerful book on astrology and Education, “Growing Pains”, Alex Trenoweth explores the benefits of using “the bad guy” of the solar system: Saturn. Often avoided and seldom understood, if we understand our own Saturn then we can help others to understand theirs. Using case studies of  highly successful people contrasted with convicted serial killers, Trenoweth deftly demonstrates the dire consequences of feeding the wrong wolf.
