NATAL CHART

1) What planetary configurations make Mark Zuckerberg such a tremendous phenomenon?

Important astrological observations: 
  • Mark is born with Leo Ascendant and the lord of Ascendant,  the Sun, is posited with Rahu in the 10th House of profession, prestige and success. There are three things to be noted here: 1) The Sign of Leo rising, 2)  Sun, as the Ascendant Lord being placed in the 10th House, 3) Rahu also placed in the 10th House and that too in its Sign of exaltation. The Leo is a Sign which stands for all thinsg royal and majestic! The Leo Ascendant natives are people who can naturally and efficiently wield immense power and also possess the abilities to rise to great heights in life. The Sun being placed in the 10th House blesses him with great name, fame, honour and prestige.  Additionally, the placement of Rahu in the 10th House, and that too in its Sign of exaltation blesses Mark with the ability to rise to dizzying heights and as it is placed in conjunction with the Sun, we can say that the power of the Sun is getting magnified and thus he will enjoy great relations with people in authority and power. Though this combination of the Sun and Rahu have blessed him with greatness, it has even caused a lot of problems for him in the initial phases. His path to success was though quick, was not an easy one and was marked with great struggle. 
  • There is a combination of the Lords of the 3rd House, 10th House – Venus and 2nd House and 11th House Lord – Mercury in the 9th House. There is an exchange of Houses between Venus and Mars. Mars is placed in the 3rd House along with the Moon and Saturn. Moreover, Mercury and Venus are in mutual aspect with the Moon, the exalted Saturn and Mars. These inter-relations between the Lords of the important Houses play a very important role in making him a prominent name in the world of Information and Technology, Computers, Internet and Social Networking. 
  • The strong planetary combinations bless him with great business acumen, and all these  factors show that he is having the inherent technique to perform with full strength, concentration and confidence. The planets in the 9th House get the positive aspect from his Natal swagruhi  Jupiter posited in  the 5th House of performance and this may be one of the key main reasons of his proficiency in handling such a giant company as Facebook. The conjunction of the Moon, Mars and Saturn in the 3rd House of skills and abilities, along with all these factors shows that he possesses the inherent skills and techniques to perform with full strength, concentration and confidence to take the right decisions without becoming emotional, and has given him success as planned and desired. Mars is the  Yogakaraka and also the Atmakaraka planet in his Chart and this acted excellently in his favour and has also given him the courage to take quick decisions.  This has rewarded him with the path breaking progress. The exalted This also gave him great competitive spirit. 
  • Exalted Rahu and Ketu further act as boons for him and give him a great understanding of the various intricacies of his work and field, as they are situated in the axis related to profession and career.

2) How will the year ahead be for him?

Important Astrological Observations :- 
  • Transiting Jupiter will be aspecting his Natal Venus and Mercury and also his Natal Jupiter, till 11th August, 2016 in his Natal Chart. 
  • Transiting Saturn will be aspecting his Natal Sun and Rahu in the 10th House in his Horoscope till January 2017.
  • He will be under the influence of major period of Mercury and sub period of Ketu till 28th August, 2016. Then the sub period of Venus will begin.
Astrological Predictions :-
  • The transit of Jupiter will be much favorable to him which will give him the power to progress tremendously and he will also be blessed with novel and creative ideas to be able to introduce innovative strategies for Facebook. He will aggressively work on new strategies and expansion plans. The influence of sub period of Ketu will help make his path easy and successful for the business growth even on the financial front. The year ahead may reward him with progress on various levels and this will encourage him to keep coming up with new concepts and features. Based on the Chart of Mark, Ganesha deduces that there are lot of innovative features that may get launched on Facebook in the upcoming year. But, the delaying influence of Saturn in the year ahead may generate the feeling of dissatisfaction within Mark. On some occassions, he may feel that things are not working out as per his plans. But on the whole, the year ahead looks very promising for him. 
3) Are there any challenges there in store for him? 

Important astrological observations :- 
  • Transiting Saturn will be aspecting his Natal Sun and Rahu in the 10th House  in the Natal chart till January, 2017.
Astrological predictions :-
  • As mentioned earlier, Ganesha feels that the only area of concern is the transit of Saturn through the 4th House in Zuckerberg's Chart. It will be aspecting the Natal Sun and Rahu and also Mark's Ascendant. It may be possible that Mark may not prefer much limelight till January 2017 and would prefer to work behind the scenes. He will have to be careful of his image and there are chances of some controversies cropping up. Due to the sub-period of Ketu, there will be some possibilities of lack of internal drive on some occasions. Employee level issues may also crop up and thus Zuckerberg will have to be pay great attention in this area. As the sub-period of Venus will follow after this, there will be accelerated progress.
