Bill Gates is American business magnate, philanthropist, investor, computer programmer, and inventor. He will celebrate his 60th Birthday on 28th October 2015..
Bill Gates was born William Henry Gates III on October 28, 1955, in Seattle, Washington (US).
As per his Vedic Astrology based Horoscope he was born under the Punarvasu constellation (Nakshatra) in the Gemini sign.
The Gemini sign is governed by Mercury and the PunarvasuNakshatra is governed by Jupiter.
Being born under this auspicious constellation he is blessed with good imagination, wisdom and a balanced as well as a broad mind.
Interest and Excellence in Computer Science …
The planets Venus, Mercury and the Moon are mainly responsible for his interest and achievements in the field of Computer science.
In his birth chart Venus is the most auspicious planet and it is very well posited in its own sign of Libra in the 5th house of intellect.
Mercury is his ascendant lord hence very auspicious and it is exalted in the 4th house. His natal Moon is well placed in the sign of Jupiter in his house of profession.
Stars behind his Generosity …
The planet Venus signifies luxuries, abundance of wealth and all worldly comforts. Venus may indulge one in material pleasures and sensual pursuits but its negative activities are curbed if it is under influence of Saturn.
In Bill Gate’s birth chart Saturn and Venus are closely conjunct in the 5th house.
Saturn in general tends to free one from material bonds of selfishness by qualities of sacrifice and care for others. In his chart Saturn is sitting very close (degree wise) to Venus and both are under the Suns magnificence. Here let me point out that since Saturn is exalted it cancels the debilitation of the 3rd lord Sun.
In the year 2000 during the main period (Mahadasha) of Venus he and his wife founded the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and gave over $28 billion to charities focused on scientific research and international development.
So it is mainly because of his luck lord viz. Saturn’s positive influence over Venus that Bill Gates is not only one of the wealthiest men in the world he is also one of the most giving.
