There is a Partial Three Harmony Water Combination in Zuckerberg’s birth chart. His Monkey Day Branch combines with his Rat Year Branch to form Water. The Three Harmony Combination can occur if it is separated by one Branch. However, his Snake Month Branch is competing to combine with the Monkey Day Branch. The Snake and Monkey form a Six Harmony Combination, but the Three Harmony Combination always takes precedence over the Six Harmony Combination. The Snake occupies the position associated with the mother, so Zuckerberg may have a complex relationship with his mother as the Month Branch is disrupting the Three Harmony Combination between the Monkey Day Branch and Rat Year Branch.

There is also a Stem Combination between the Yang Wood Year Stem and the Yin Earth Month Stem. This suggests that the father (represented by the Month Stem) did not spend much time with Zuckerberg when he was growing up. In spite of the other interactions within the birth chart, the most prominent element in his chart is Water. As Zuckerberg is a Yang Earth Day Master, Water represents his Wealth. He has a Follow the Wealth (Water) chart.

In the Yin Metal Luck Cycle (age 17 to 21), Zuckerberg entered Harvard to study psychology and computer science in 2002 (Yang Water Horse year). His favourable element Water was present that year and his second favourable element Metal was present in the Luck Cycle. In 2003 (Yin Water Sheep year), Zuckerberg decided to drop out in his second year to launch his project, a social network, which he initially called Thefacebook. His negative elements Fire and Earth were present that year. Thefacebook was launched in February 2004 (Yang Wood Monkey year). The Monkey that year combined with the Monkey and Rat Branches present in Zuckerberg’s birth chart to reinforce his favourable element Water. During the year, Zuckerberg, Dustin Moskovitz and Eduardo Saverin formed Limited Liability Company (LLC) and moved the headquarters from Harvard to Palo Alto, California.

In 2005 (Yin Wood Rooster year), Facebook’s network had spread throughout the USA and included universities in the United Kingdom, Mexico, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand. The Rooster that year formed a Partial Three Harmony Metal Combination with Zuckerberg’s Snake Month Branch. His second favourable element Metal is produced. By combining with the Rooster that year, the Snake is no longer an obstacle to the Monkey and Rat Partial Three Harmony Combination. Everything was able to flow smoothly.

The Sheep Luck Cycle (age 22 to 26) was problematic for Zuckerberg on certain fronts. His negative elements Fire and Earth were present in the Luck Cycle. He had to deal with lawsuits during this period. One suit was mounted from Cameron Winklevoss, Tyler Winklevoss and Divya Narendra, who accused Zuckerberg of intentionally misleading them. They believed that Zuckerberg was going to help them with constructing their social network Harvard Connection but he had used their ideas to build a competing network. The lawsuit was settled in 2008 (Yang Earth Rat year). The Rat that year combined with the Monkey and Rat in Zuckerberg’s birth chart to form more Water, his favourable element. This helped bring about a resolution to the lawsuit.
In 2009 (Yin Earth Ox year), Facebook announced that it had turned cash flow positive for the first time. For a Yang Earth Day Master like Zuckerberg, the Special Stars are the Rat and Ox. The Ox that year worked in conjunction with Zuckerberg’s Rat Year Branch to bring him success.
The Yang Water Luck Cycle (age 27 to 31) contained Zuckerberg’s favourable element Water. In 2012 (Yang Water Dragon year), Facebook had the third largest Initial Public Offering (IPO) in US history when it listed as a public company. It raised $16 billion US dollars. The Dragon that year combined with the Monkey and Rat in Zuckerberg’s birth chart to form the Full Three Harmony Water Combination. His favourable element Water was strengthened. On a personal note, he married Priscilla Chan that same year. The Dragon year also combined with the Monkey in his House of Spouse. In 2015 (Yin Wood Sheep year), Zuckerberg announced that they were expecting a baby girl. The Children element for a woman is the element she produces, i.e. the Output element. The wife for a man is represented by the Wealth element, i.e. the element that he controls. The Wealth element produces the Power element, so the Children element for men is the Power element. For Zuckerberg, the Power element is Wood. Wood is present in 2015 in the Year Stem and also hidden as a Yin Wood Branch in the Sheep.
The subsequent Luck Cycles all contain Zuckerberg’s favourable elements Water, Metal and Wood: Monkey (age 32 to 36), Yin Water (age 37 to 41), Rooster (age 42 to 46) and Yang Wood (age 47 to 51).
