Have Wills and Kate Produced a Daredevil? (chart included)
by Milky Way Maid
Well! The heir to the throne that everyone has been waiting for finally arrived July 22, somewhat overdue. He was a BIG baby, weighing in at 8 pounds, 6 ounces. The official birth-time was given as 4:24 pm, London time, giving baby George a late Scorpio ascendant and a Full Moon chart.
First a note about his given names. He has been dubbed “George Alexander Louis” and will be called His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge.
The internet quickly picked up on the fact that these names coincidentally (?) honor the actors who played the major roles on the old Seinfeld TV series. That is, George Costanza, Jason Alexander, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus. Will this irreverence offend the Queen? Will the names affect the relationship between the young couple and the Queen?
I like to check first to see if any planets are on late degrees of any signs. Baby George has two, the Sun at 29 degrees of Cancer and the Moon at 28 degrees Capricorn. Late degrees of Cancer can signify a hefty inheritance, or carrying on a family business. Of course the family business in his case is the throne; this might be one signal that George might actually reign one day. [John F. Kennedy had Saturn in a late degree of Cancer, too; his “family business” was politics.] Late degrees of Capricorn helps one in the business world, especially in building up a large business. Maybe this will help him to promote British industry and trade. Interestingly, Princess Diana had Saturn at 27 degrees Capricorn; she was a great boost to the British fashion industry.
[CHART: Baby George in inner wheel. Daddy William in outer wheel.]
Then I like to check also to see if there are planets on critical degrees. [The critical degrees are 0, 13 and 26 of the cardinal signs; 8 and 22 degrees of the fixed signs, and 4 and 17 of the mutable signs.] George has three planets on critical degrees: Mercury at 13 degrees Cancer, Uranus at 12 degrees Aries, and Neptune at 5 degrees Pisces. While the placements of Uranus and Neptune affect many thousands of babies born that week, Mercury is interesting because it just went direct on July 20. I feel that Mercury is stronger due to the fact that it is almost hovering in one spot, even though it is actually moving forward now.
Mutual Reception-- George has Moon and Mars in mutual reception. Mars in Cancer (Mars is in its detriment in Cancer) is exalted in Capricorn; Moon in Capricorn (the Moon is in its fall in Capricorn) is ruler of Cancer. Both planets are weak by natal position, but are strengthened by the mutual reception. There are other and more subtle mutual receptions, created by planets being in a house that they also rule.
Grand Trine-- George has a Grand Trine in water signs, composed of the Jupiter-Mars conjunction in Cancer, Neptune in Pisces, and Saturn in Scorpio. He may be very emotional, yet his intuition could guide him to a deeper knowledge and deeper understanding of life and people. Much will depend on the guidance he receives from those around him.
T-squares-- George has a T-square composed of the Mars-Jupiter conjunction opposite Pluto in Capricorn, square Uranus in Aries. His Sun-Moon opposition is also squared by Saturn, tho it's a bit wide with a 5 degree orb. So there will be many challenges set before him, but I have to say that cardinal signs tend to enjoy a challenge. The drawback is that cardinal signs tend to rush in where fools fear to tread, before they have properly assessed the risk and developed a plan of attack. Let's hope that he is part of a team effort that will shore up his weaknesses.
I am very disturbed by George's chart. I feel that he will be much too rash and invite disaster due to the Mars-Jupiter-Mercury opposed to Pluto. These are in the eighth-second house axis which sometimes denotes a daredevil, someone who thinks he is invincible and immortal and dares the devil to take him. [Evel Knievel and Neil Armstrong have a Moon-Mars opposition across the second-eighth house axis; Armstrong's Mars is late in the first house.]
At any rate, Mars conjunct Jupiter is either a great athlete or a big gambler. With Pluto opposed, he is sure to lose the bet – eventually, anyway. Perhaps when Mars-Jupiter progress to an exact square to Uranus, he may run out of luck.
George does have a wonderful Full Moon opposition in his third and ninth houses, which can indicate intellectual curiosity and even brilliance. He will love to read, and may be a history nut. He may show an intuitive grasp of difficult principles. Where he may have inherited scholastic brilliance will be a mystery, because certainly the rest of the family is astonishingly poorly if expensively educated.
If you use planetary hours, George was born in a Saturn hour. I have not been tracking this kind of thing, so I have no idea of the significance of this factoid. I do know that Queen Elizabeth II has a prominent Saturn in her natal chart, representing the heavy responsibilities of the throne. Could this be another hint that he may one day wear the crown?
AMENDED TO ADD: The best part of his chart is the strong driver of the Sun-Saturn square (even though it is an out-of-sign square from late Cancer to early Scorpio). He will be driven to achieve something with his life and adopt challenges that few could tackle. People with a Sun-Saturn square just keep going in spite of the obstacles. He could really become a famous and accomplished person aside from the fact of being born into the royal family. This square is something that he shares with his father William. William has his Sun-Moon square both Jupiter and Saturn in Libra, and so far he is using it in his search-and-rescue career.
