There has been much written about Bill and Melinda Gates’ divorce and how it is the result of the Earth penalty. In Bill’s BaZi chart it is partially formed by Xu and Wei. The annual earthly branch for 2021 Chou completes it.
I was interested to see whether we can see the signs of divorce in Melinda’s chart, but of course, for that her time of birth would need to be verified. Having tried all possible options, I have come to conclusion that most probably, she was born during Zi hour.
In ZWDS chart, her husband is represented by Tian Liang star, which is a symbol of the elder. This star is not just about what an old person represents as an archetype, but it is also about somebody who is associated with charity and resource distribution. It is about somebody who positions himself as an unquestionable authority over the large group of people. It seems, that Bill Gates fits the description.
The negative enhancer Ji is connecting the Spouse and Mental palaces in Melinda’s chart. This means that the way he is, or the way he acts, makes her stressed out. This interaction between the palaces is hard wired into her natal chart (this is not a decade or an annual influence, just to be clear), which means, that before divorcing him, she was stressed out for many years, and most probably, the final decision to separate was made back in 2018 Wu Xu.
Her Mental palace corresponds to Jia Xu.
She has got married in 1994, the year of Jia Xu, making the connection between the Mental and Spouse palaces active. Who knows, maybe the mental stress could be taken for love? It can definitely be taken for excitement, until it is no longer it is not longer exciting ..? All these years the negative enhancer would have been active, but it is only now when the Earth penalty has been formed the news about divorce came out.
From Melinda’s BaZi we can see that she is a fighter (in a nice way). Shen-Zi-Chen in the branches form the Water trinity, which is the Authority element for Bing DM. Her Output EG is favorable and prominent, making her a high achiever. She knows what she wants and she goes for it.
At the same time, we can see how the Spouse palace in her ZWDS chart sends out the Lu positive enhancer into her Career palace.
This is an indication that Bill is indeed supportive of Melinda’s role at the Foundation. This explains why they would continue working together while being separated as a couple.
