MacKenzie Scott, novelist and former wife of Jeff Bezos, has donated more than $4 billion in four months this year. After her divorce she became the world’s 18th-richest person and this year has seen her fortune soar. She said on her blog “This pandemic has been a wrecking ball in the lives of Americans already struggling. Economic losses and health outcomes alike have been worse for women, for people of colour and for people living in poverty. Meanwhile, it has substantially increased the wealth of billionaires.” Her donations were focused on those “operating in communities facing high projected food insecurity, high measures of racial inequity, high local poverty rates, and low access to philanthropic capital.”
She was born 7 April 1970 at 6.20 am San Francisco, and has a 12th house Aries Sun and four Taurus planets just into her 1st house – Mercury, Venus, Moon and Saturn, all conjunct and opposition an optimistic, financially-minded Jupiter in Scorpio; and Mars is also in last decan Taurus. She certainly belies Taurus’s reputation for hanging on to material possessions. Though that may be partly to do with her Neptune in the 8th making her idealistic about money. Her Mars is in a determined trine to Pluto so she’s no pushover.
What’s interesting given Princess Charlene’s chart (below) is that tr Uranus was moving across MacKenzie’s Ascendant as she decided to divorce her husband and set herself on the road to freedom.
She’s in a high-profile, hard-working phase with tr Saturn moving through her upper quadrant for several years ahead.
