The Birth Chart of Catherine, Princess of Wales

As heir to the throne of his father, King Charles the III, William is now the Prince of Wales, and his wife Catherine is the new Princess of Wales. As hard as it is to grasp it, that title no longer belongs to Diana, Queen of Hearts.

And like Diana, though in a much different way, Catherine seems destined to be the beating heart of what must become the people’s royalty – if the British Monarchy is to survive at all.

It has always been Williamthe man – for Catherine, a woman who wanted a home in the country, a fancy AGA range cooker, kids, dogs and gardens.  Her Venus in Aquarius tells us that she would follow her heart, whether it led to a cottage or a throne. Yet whatever William or Kate may have thought when they first met, Kate turned into Catherine, a wife who was also born to be a queen.

And if we are to be scrupulous in our astrological analysis, it must be noted that Kate’s Capricorn Sun would have noted with approval that a throne happened to come with this man…

We can see it all in Kate’s birth chart (equal house).  It starts with an Ascendant at 19 degrees of the royal sign of Leo, raised to new heights of authority with a Sun in Capricorn, topped off most tenderly with a Moon in Cancer.  Add to this her Venus and Mercury in Aquarius, and you  have that slightly unorthodox, not quite predictable lady of fashion, royal family photographer, modern, edgy interests, and a lady with her heart in tune with the masses of Britain and, somewhat reservedly, the people of the world.

Camilla Duchess of Cornwall * Diana, Karma and 12th House of Undoing

Camilla Parker-Bowles has always wanted to be – or has simply known she would be – Queen to Charles’s King.  The astrology of her birth chart can show us why.  It can also help us see it was more karma and destiny than it was malice or selfishness that brought Camilla and Charles together, leaving Diana to play her own special role in the British Monarchy.

Three Karmic Keys To Camilla’s Birth Chart

Ascendant/Rising Sign and Degree Overlap With Birth Chart of Prince Charles:

What stands out immediately in Camilla’s chart is that her Ascendant, known as the Rising Sign, is at almost 5 degrees of Leo, while Prince Charles’s Rising Sign is just over 5 degrees of Leo.  So when we place Camilla’s chart over that of Prince Charles (what we call an overlay), the two charts match up exactly in terms of Ascendants at 5 degrees of Leo, and subsequent 11 Houses, all beginning at 5 degrees (approximately) of the same signs. Each of their houses are ruled by the same house as that of the other, giving them almost identical outlooks on most areas of their lives.

This is likely not “coincidence” but karma, truly a match made in Heaven, or at least arising from other lifetimes.  When two people’s charts are matched at the Ascendant, they are, astrologically speaking, “joined at the hip.” There may be other vital connections (through angles) which reinforce or weaken this innate compatibility; however, it reveals that both Camilla and Charles share a Life Plan structure which will create similar, if not parallel lives.  It is not a surprise then, that their lives have merged into one Road.

The Birth Chart of Charles, Prince of Wales * William, Harry and the British Monarchy

Update:  On September 8, sometime between noon and probably 1:00 p.m., Queen Elizabeth II passed to the Other Side, and at that moment, her son became our new King Charles III. This gives his reign the vibration of Virgo, said to be alchemically linked with, part of, the Sign Scorpio under which Charles was born.

But before I post an analysis of the chart of ascension for the new Charles, as King, below we have the basic birth chart of Charles. The kingship will change him, without a doubt, but the building blocks of his lifetime are all here, in his birth chart.

His Sun Sign is in 22 degrees of Scorpio, Ascendant 5 degrees of Leo and Moon 0 degrees of Taurus.

The Sun, ruler of his Ascendant Leo (which marks off the beginning of his 1st House), rules his chart. As Leo is the Sign of Kingship, we can expect Charles to at some point, become king. And, as I note in my post on her chart, Camilla clearly has a remarkable connection to Charles, with both of their charts anchored in a 5-degree Leo Ascendant.  There is karma, most likely of a long and loving kind – and it is my psychic reading that loving Charles has, for Camilla, been in some lifetimes through being his mother.

As ruler of Leo, the Sun will rule this birth chart, though we know Prince Charles’s Sun is actually in Scorpio.  And, because his Sun is found in the 4th House it we can see his resonance to the sign of Cancer which is the Sign of the Fourth House in the archetypal, “natural” zodiac.  As a father, Charles can relate to William who is a Cancer, and might well have connected better with Diana, also a Cancer, had there been no prior – karmic – destiny with Camilla.

The 4th House rules home and family and this is where soul DNA in the birth chart can be very revealing.  Here are the physical, karmic, psychological and spiritual roots of family history going back many generations, so that we can trace here the spirit line of a family.  Here are the entertwined roots of karma, and here we can widen our vision to understand that there is much more going on in a life than what we see on the surface.

I focus initially on several “asteroid” points – Camilla, Harry, William, and London. As examples of the mystical fact of synchronicity within our cosmos I have found these points relevant in every chart in which I have used them.

Note:  As in all my astrology charts, I use the Equal House System, a very old approach to the division of the circle into 12 houses, each said to reveal key themes and issues within different areas of each lifetime.*

The first observation I’ll make here is that the placement of Camilla, William, Henry, California – where Prince Harry and wife Meghan now reside – and perhaps London itself, are quite striking.  Continue reading The Birth Chart of Charles, Prince of Wales * William, Harry and the British Monarchy

William Duke of Cambridge Birth Chart * Destiny or Freedom Calling?

Prince William sits with his father and the Royal Heir Prince of Charles in Parliament, under the Act of Regency on May 10, 2022.

The birth chart of Prince William, also known as the Duke of Cambridge, is intriguing and has a rather commanding presence. I say this because of several striking features which, given the present state of the British Monarchy, could swing into play in the near future.

A major question for me, as an observer of Royal Astrology, is whether or not William will actually sit on the British Throne, or if, in some way as yet unforeseen, he will find a different path, perhaps one of freedom, his true dream…

The future is murky here. William is presently second in line to the throne, but it is clear that the Queen, and much of England, would prefer William to be the next king, meaning that Williams’ father, Prince Charles, the present heir, would be passed over in the line of succession.

This has been the speculation in recent years, but what is emerging now, in 2022, may be another, quite different framework of succession, desired by the Queen herself and possibly already underway. Because under the Act of Regency, which is currently invoked to allow Prince Charles to act in his mother’s name for the official opening of Parliament, Prince Charles and Prince William, his son, were both present “acting for the Queen.”

This sets up the scenario whereby Charles accepts that a newly envisioned British Royalty will be strongest, and most likely to edure (certainly this is the Queen’s opinion) if it is somehow expanded in form to embrace Prince William (and I suspect Prince Harry) in a dual or even tripartite monarchy.

Such a new monarchy would, in a way, hearken back to the days when the British Empire was tripartite – with one part of the Crown in London, one in Cairo, Egypt, and one in Delhi, India.

Jupiter, King of the Gods, King of the planets, ruler of kingship on Earth.

Jupiter (which rules, among other things, Kingship) movied into Aries (New Beginnings) on the very day – May 10, 2022 – that Prince William joined his father Prince Charles, formal heir to the throne, in representing the Queen.  I find Prince William’s presence – apparently at the wish of the Queen – to be a signal that the Queen has found a way, symbolically at least, to pass the Crown to both Charles and William; if true, this would be a brilliant compromise, and may pave the way for more royal innovations.
