Ascendant and the 1st house
Looking at Bill Gates’s Natal Chart, firstly we can see his ascendant in Cancer shows he is receptive to the needs of others and has a natural desire to care for or protect others. Family and domestic matters are important to him, along with this home and family. Negatively, at times, he may be susceptible to changeable moods, irritability and/or petulance.
With Uranus in his first house, the natal chart tells us Bill Gates is an original personality who has the ability to make an immediate impression upon others. He is independent and delights in being different. He most likely needs a lot of change and variety to remain stimulated.
