Birth data: November 19, 1976 at 1.43am CST 38N38; 90W12 (A) is from him.

His chart’s astrodyne report

The Sun in Jack Dorsey’s birth chart is in the third decanate of Scorpio so his I desire individuality is defined by intense emotions, a strong sex drive, vivid ideas and a sense of social importance that’s focused on superior effort and attainment.

The Sun has prominence status and is conjunction Mars – planet of initiative and energy – and he’ll reach his highest level of peak performance when he teams up with a loving partner who spurs him on to greater effort.  

The prominent Moon is in the third decanate of Libra so the special feature of his I balance mentality is his mental brilliance which comes with a caveat. 

He needs to resist a dangerous (Mars) temptation to use his mental cleverness to unfair advantage (or live a double life). Personal tragedy involving dishonesty or corruption (Pluto) can be avoided by living a straight-forward moral life.

Mercury is in the first decanate of Sagittarius and his I see mental activity and way of communicating is defined by devotion. Dorsey has a deep kinship with nature – a deeply religious nature (Jupiter is prominent) – and the ability to inspire others with his confidence (Sun) and faith (Jupiter). 

He should always rely on his own hunches, judgments and intuitions because acting on the other person’s advice and suggestions will lead to mistakes.

And with his ascendant in the third decanate of Virgo his I analyze personality is defined by renunciation and working on behalf of others.

Dorsey is naturally inclined to give up personal ambitions and aspirations for the sake of duty and to work for a noble, humanitarian cause.

Pluto – the planet of computer programmers, entrepreneurs, cooperation, coercion, crime, corruption and spirituality – dominates Dorsey’s chart.  

It’s in house 1 and he has an intense, persuasive personality and an obsessive-compulsive interest in his appearance and health. He’s very inclined to become personally involved with groups.

His prominent planet profile – Pluto, Sun, Jupiter, Mars and Moon – defines his chief talents and attributes. 

House 3 (mental work, ideas, creative thinking that designs computer programs and writing algorithms) dominates his chart.

It’s the worst house – the Sun-Mars-Mercury conjunction there is opposition Jupiter in house 9 – so his life story is defined by fortunate and unfortunate events involving his private thoughts, thinking and writing.

His story

Jack Dorsey became a computer programmer and Internet entrepreneur – the co-founder and CEO of Twitter and founder and CEO of Square, a mobile payments company.

He was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri and attended the Catholic Bishop DuBourg High School.  In 1995-97 he attended the University of Missouri before transferring to New York University. He dropped out in 1999. Whilst studying at NYU he came up with the idea that he developed as Twitter.

He then worked on dispatching as a programmer, moved to Oakland, California and in 2000 started his own company to dispatch couriers, taxis and emergency services from the Web.

At this time instant text messaging was an idea and Dorsey and Biz Stone decided that SMS text suited the status-message idea.  They built the prototype of Twitter in about 2 weeks. (Progressed Mercury – the planet of ideas – in Dorsey’s chart had moved to form a sextile (opportunity) aspect with birth chart Uranus – planet of original thinking.)

The Twitter Website business was registered in San Francisco on January 21, 2000 and Jack Dorsey posted the first tweet on March 21, 2006.

Twitter, the social networking service that allows users to send and read short 140-character messages called ‘tweets’, rapidly gained worldwide popularity.

In 2012 over 100 million users posted 340 million tweets per day. It hit its peak of 661 million tweets per day in August 2014, but by January 2016 the number had dropped to about 300 million.

On October 16, 2008 Dorsey stepped down as CEO of Twitter to become the company’s chairman of the board and 7 years later on October 5, 2015 he returned to the CEO position.

In September 2018, Dorsey testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee about meddling in the 2016 presidential election. Following his testimony the value of Twitter’s shares fell by 6%.

Former Twitter CEO Dick Costolo describes Dorsey as a calm, thoughtful leader and as of March 2019 his financial net worth was roughly $5.1 billion.

On August 30, 2019, Dorsey’s personal Twitter account was breached with the hacker (Pluto) posting and retweeting numerous racist tweets (Uranus).

The Verge – Vox Media’s technology news and media network – reported...

‘Friday afternoon, Jack Dorsey’s 4.2 million Twitter followers got an unpleasant surprise (Uranus). A group of vandals had gained access to the account, and used that access to blast out a stream of offensive messages (Mars) and plugs for their group’s discord channel. Within 15 minutes the account was back under control (Sun) and the group (Pluto) was banned from Discord, but the incident is a reminder of the serious vulnerabilities (Mars) in even the highest-profile accounts (Sun), and just how insecure (Saturn) phone-based authentication has become.’
