Now that the baby Prince has arrived, it's time to start exploring how he fits in with his extended royal family. The Prince shares some striking astrological connections with his paternal grandparents, Prince Charles and Diana, especially through the signs of Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, and Capricorn.
Virgo, King, and Country
The new Prince's Venus in Virgo links to England's country chart, which itself has lucky Jupiter in Virgo. The Prince will enhance the country's popularity, but he'll do so with steady guidance from his grandfather Charles, who has stable Saturn in Virgo.
The Saturn-Venus conjunction link between Charles and the new Prince is the perfect grandfather-grandson energy. In fact, it's quite possible that Charles will eventually provide dating advice for the young royal! Until then, the structure and security Charles offers will help keep the Prince safe and on-track. Indeed, Charles will be firm, but loving with his grandson. This placement also shows the financial support the Prince will receive through his inheritance from Charles.
Diana had Mars in Virgo, demonstrating that, although she's no longer with us, her memory and legacy will provide inspiration for the newest royal. The Prince will grow up hearing stories of his grandmother and how brave she was. This will help provide the little Prince with motivation in trying times.
The triple link between Saturn, Mars, and Venus in Virgo points to the strong energy between Charles, Diana, and the new Prince. Humble Virgo is all about service rather than catering to one's ego, so, like his paternal grandparents, the new Prince will keep a low profile while remaining productive behind the scenes.
Diana, Cancer, and Capricorn
There's been much talk of the royal Prince's Moon in Capricorn. This placement aligns with Diana's Saturn in Capricorn, and it's likely that Diana's family will play an important role in the baby's life. A Saturn-Moon aspect shows the continuance of tradition, and as the Prince grows, he may choose to champion one of Diana's charities or causes.
Adding further weight to the idea that the newest royal will somehow carry on Diana's lineage is the positive alignment between the new Prince's Cancer Mars and Jupiter and Diana's Cancer Sun and Mercury. Some of Diana's most important ideas and concepts may be developed and acted upon in new ways by the young Prince, as if he'll grow up prepared to gallantly adopt his grandmother's challenges as his own.
Charles, Scorpio, and Secrets
One of the most striking placements in the royal baby's chart is his Scorpio ascendant, which normally suggests a private -- or even secretive -- personality. While this may seem odd for one destined to live such a public life, it closely mirrors his grandfather Charles, who is a Scorpio and has Mercury in Scorpio. In fact, the baby will help raise Charles' profile, as the young Prince's ascendant is conjunct Charles' Scorpio Sun.
In addition, there's a karmic connection between Charles and the baby Prince, shown by a link between the Prince's Scorpio Saturn and Charles' Scorpio south node. The Prince's Saturn also aligns with Charles' Mercury in Scorpio, showing deep trust and loyalty between the two -- they'll certainly be able to keep a secret between one another!
The royal Prince activates important placements in both his grandparents' charts, and he'll certainly grow up to make his grandfather proud!
