Facebook—the social media platform that changed the world, connected us on a more significant level than ever before in human history and has even has effected politics. Whether you love it or loathe it, the man behind it all is sure to be affecting the world and the future as we know it.
Mark Zuckerberg, now one of the wealthiest men on Earth, seeks to continue the evolution of technology and social media in our lives, betting on the metaverse to come. While the company formerly known as Facebook, now called Meta, has had its ups and downs, it is clear that Zuckerbeg’s claim to fame and infamy—as well as billions of dollars—is unlikely to change anytime soon.
When he’s not ruling his pocket of the world, the tycoon hits the waves, continues his conquest of Hawaii and builds his expansive real estate portfolio. So what made Zuckerberg the way that he is? Did the stars align to make him a genius—or did he just catch a lucky break that ended up becoming an endless snowball effect? What are predictions for his future, the metaverse and his billionaire status?
Join me as we dive into his stars because I’m a pop culture astrologer and I can see it all.
Mark Zuckerberg’s birth chart shows he was fought for success and power
Mark Zuckerberg was born on May 14, 1984. This makes him a hardworking TaurusSun with a passionate Scorpio Moon. His birth time has not been listed anywhere online (he probably made sure of that, TBH), so without it, we cannot calculate his Ascendant. Yet, don’t you worry, we can still learn a ton about the man underneath it all. The first thing I noticed is that Zuckerberg was born on a full moon. This is immensely telling, as it shows that in this lifetime he’s a “go big or go home” kind of guy. He thrives in the spotlight and pushes himself to experience intensities.
There’s no middle ground with him, he’s all or nothing. His energy propels him to persevere and stand in the limelight, refusing to let others stand before him. When it comes to elemental energy, he is significantly composed of Earth and Water, which reveals he’s deeply concerned with creating results and being led by his emotions. He’s certainly intuitive, but there’s a cunning side to how he utilizes his emotions, seeing beyond what people say or do and making instinctive assessments 24/7. And the thing is—most of the time he’s right.
When looking at key themes in his birth chart, not that this is a shocker but he is outrageously ambitious (duh). However, while he does have some aspects that show he was destined for fortune and success with luck and opportunities showering down upon him—most notably with his Jupiter, the planet of prosperity, linked perfectly to his Saturn, the planet of permanence—there’s so much of his chart that reveals he’s cunning, calculated and eternally seeking dominance.
Growing up wasn’t easy for him, as he likely felt rejected and struggled with acceptance from peers and at least one of his parents. This is seen with his Moon, ruling his soul and inner life, united with Saturn, which also relates to hardship. He has tremendously deep feelings, but has been forced to be rigid, demanding and extreme in his assertion in order to protect himself from being hurt or experiencing feelings of inferiority. Like I said, these wounds are deep and it propelled him to demand security and protection in a world where he is in control.

His Sun is opposite Mars, which brings him tremendous firepower to channel toward his goals and plans—but it also makes him immensely opinionated, quick tempered and impatient. He will stop at nothing to get what he wants when he sets his mind upon something—especially when he feels almighty because it was his idea. His Mercury, ruling his mind, clashes with Pluto, the planet of domination, which brings him a penetrating and sharp mind, with powers of insight and comprehension that are transformative. His communication abilities and desire to assert his vision are even further amplified because of this.
Now, while a lot of this can paint a picture of a man who is very extreme (and he is), I do want to bring to light that Zuckerberg also has many aspects in his chart that speak of him being genuinely good-natured, kind and popular. He does have a natural charm, with his Moon linked to Venus and Jupiter. He was meant to work with the public and does have a compassionate and kind heart with a natural tendency to attract luxury and beauty around him. He’s not necessarily the big bad haters of Facebook may make him out to be.
What are predictions for Mark Zuckerberg?
So what does astrology see for Mr. Zuckerberg? Lots of very significant changes, TBH. First and foremost, since the end of 2021 until the end of 2023, he is experiencing powerful eclipses in his Sun and Moon signs—which will rock his personal world. He is experiencing a very significant cycle around reinvention and rebirth, as he wants to show the world a new version of him—and his legacy. On one hand, he’s set to continue to grow—but because the eclipses also happen across the sky from him—he’s going to face some important learning curves around relationships.
His positive connections should grow, taking steps to the next level, but his competitors—and public adversaries—will also be quite fierce, especially in the second half of 2022. Another significant theme in 2022 and the first half of 2023 is around development of big, long-term projects. These will likely be announced once Jupiter enters Taurus after May 2023 into 2024. He will enjoy a rather successful launch, even if it takes him a few years—even as long as a decade—to see it reach its full potential. You heard it here first.
