Natal planets of Twitter’s first tweet

On March 21, 2006 at 9:50 pm pst in San Francisco, Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey posted this message: “just setting up my twttr” and one of the most influential social networking sites began with 24 characters. ‘Twas the first tweet of many 140-characters-or-less messages to be tweeted out to inform the Universe of…well, whatever.

Here is a list of the planets on March 21, 2006 at 9:50 pm pst (which uses over 140 characters but it can’t be helped):

Sun 1Ari27 (one day past Spring Equinox 2006, aka, the Aries Ingress when the Sun reaches 00Ari00:00, the Aries Point of reward, fame, prominence and recognition on the world stage–was some founder reading Astrology charts in order to elect the timing for Twitter’s success?);

Moon (the public) 24Sag31, ruled by broadcasting Jupiter, planet of fortunate breaks and lucky wins;

Mercury 13Pis43–Mercury, planet of Communications in creative Pisces (also ruled by Jupiter and co-ruled by vast Neptune of the Unconscious)–Pisces is the sign of The Collective;

Venus 15AQ00 with Aquarius also associated with The Collective via Humanity–attractive yet distant;

Mars 17Gem04, planet of action, energy, initiative, and motivation and ruler of the Aries Point; Gemini, sign of Communications and ruled by speedy Mercury with wings on his helmet and ankles facilitating instant communications, ideas, and the news; Twitter acts (Mars) as a chatty Gemini;

Jupiter 18Sco23—Scorpio, ruled by forceful Mars and Pluto and sign of Big Business, Corporatism, and intensity; an indicator of gaining plenty of high-level financial investment–Jupiter shows how one relates to others so Twitter relates as a Scorpio;

Saturn 4Leo33–Leo, sign of creativity, entertainment, and leadership, and Saturn, planet of authority, systems, boundaries and restriction (140 characters only!);

Uranus 11Pis53, quirky planet of Technology and whatever is the newest thing or invention; Pisces again (see conjunctions, below); Uranus’ sign describes how one behaves so Twitter behaves as a Pisces…evasively? compassionately? well, constant Tweeting can be used as negative escapism!;

Neptune 18AQ50, planet of creativity, The Masses, and the Media, and as noted above; Aquarius, pouring out its gifts to the world;

Pluto 26Sag44–Sagittarius, The Seeker archetype, ruled by Jupiter; Pluto, the primal motivator and planet of
invisible control and great wealth hidden in secret places (also, the saboteur).

As you see, there are three important conjunctions on the First-Tweet list and contain much energy for creative enterprises:

Moon-Pluto (a pair associated with publicity), Mercury-Uranus (a primary signature for technological communications such as computers and other devices, plus it acts as a marker for intellectual genius and denotes power–Pluto–to the People–Moon), and Venus-Neptune, an artistic combo denoting dreamers, visionaries, mystics, and illusionists–and of being attractive (Venus) to The Masses (Neptune.)

All of these potentials are well supported by Twitter’s Sun Ari-Moon Sag blend, a fire-fire combination of energies that can sense the potential opportunity in every situation and inspire others with its persuasive passion.

With Sun Ari-Moon Sag, Twitter has shown what is obviously an entrepreneurial spirit but with a definite philosophical flair, a competitive nature, and an optimistic attitude. Here is Twitter’s philosophy, or Mission Statement with Mercury-Uranus, Moon-Pluto, and Venus-Neptune vibes in attendance:

“To instantly connect people everywhere to what is most meaningful to them.”

And so it does!

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel are essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
