The astrology of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

photo from FlickrPrince Harry and Meghan Markle are set to marry on May 19, 2018 and the royal watchers are abuzz with gossip.  Will it last?  Is she a gold digger?  What about the racists?  Meanwhile Germaine Greer has predicted that Meghan will “bolt” from the marriage, and an assortment of psychics are predicting that the wedding will be postponed, that it won’t happen, that that it won’t last, that they will have three children, etc. etc.

Astrology can give us a window into a relationship and provide hints as to compatibility and durability.  What it cannot do, however, is predict whether two people will stay together.  I have seen couples with perfectly harmonious charts split up because there’s not enough tension to hold the relationship together.  And I have seen couples with very little compatibility who have long-term successful marriages.

All that aside, let’s take a look at Meghan and Harry to see how they are connected and where their difficulties might arise.  You can catch up on Harry’s chart analysis here, and Meghan’s here.

Meghan and Harry’s astrology as individuals

Meghan and Harry are an example of two very different people uniting in a common purpose.  With his Sun Sign in Virgo in a harmonious trine to his Taurus Moon and Capricorn rising (all Earth signs), Harry is at his core an extremely grounded and practical individual.  However, his freewheeling Mars (drive and desires) conjunct Uranus (radical departure from the norm) in Sagittarius, the sign of freedom and adventure adds a radical side to his personality which defies the kind of structure which the earthy element creates.  In the earlier article about Harry quoted above I wrote:

The conflict between this […]

The astrology of Meghan Markle

Embed from Getty Images
This is Part I of a two-part series on Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.  Disclosure: As a long time fan of the Suits TV show (Seasons 1-5, it lost me after Season 6) and a follower of Meghan’s Tig blog until its recent demise,  I am fully on Team Meghan.  While I’ve tried to be as impartial as possible in this profile, I am definitely prejudiced by my admiration for her and am tickled that a mixed-race American is going to marry Prince Harry, forever transforming the British monarchy and symbolizing a sea change in the traditions of royalty. 

In case you have been cloistered away from the news, and who could blame you, Prince Harry and American actress Meghan Markle are engaged and will be married in May 2018.  I profiled Prince Harry in the summer of 2017 (catch up here)  after he opened up to the world about his psychological issues – this article is about Meghan and I will follow up with an astro analysis of their relationship.

Meghan was born with the Sun in Leo: sign of the actor, the entertainer – with a generous heart and a craving for attention. It must be said that Leo IS the sign of royalty – represented by the King of the Lions, most individuals with a strong Leo signature in their charts have a need to feel special and acclaimed.

Her Libra Moon signifies a craving for partnership and a need for personal harmony, but her Moon is impinged by both Saturn (isolation, loneliness, achievement) and […]

Astrology of Steve Bannon

Steve Bannon astrology“He was born angry, he was born fighting. This is just who the guy has always been.” (Devil’s Bargain by Joshua Green)

Steve Bannon is in the news again.  After failing in his attempt to use the Trump presidency to take down the GOP establishment, he has now turned against Donald Trump in a new book, resulting in a firestorm of fury from the White House.  Since Bannon rose to fame in 2012 as the director of Breitbart News, his rage has been directed at immigrants and immigration, Islam and Muslims, Hillary Clinton, to name only a few.  His incendiary philosophies led a Breitbart colleague to comment, ““If there’s an explosion or a fire somewhere, Steve’s probably nearby with some matches.”  An ex-employee called Bannon “a seriously sinister figure.”

Bannon is the kind of character that makes me want to look into his astrological chart to see why he behaves as he does – what motivates him.  Unfortunately there is not a known birth time for Bannon so we are missing some key pieces of information, but there is enough here for us to sink our teeth into.

Steve Bannon was born with the Sun in Sagittarius, the sign of ideology, religion, philosophy and expansive thought and goals.  His Sun makes no (major) aspect to any other planet, suggesting that he tends to operate as a loner and may have had difficulty fitting in, even as a child.  His Leo Moon (emotional needs) craves attention and validation from others, but it is locked in a death match with Pluto, planet of obsession, death and power.  This dynamic suggests a challenging home life in […]

Harvey Weinstein – the astrology of sex and power

Flickr

How appropriate that Harvey Weinstein, arguably the most powerful mogul in Hollywood today and perhaps in Hollywood history, was terminated from his leadership position at the Weinstein Company just as Jupiter (leadership) goes into Scorpio (sex and power).

Weinstein is notorious among Hollywood circles for his boorish behavior and sexual harassment allegations that span over decades.  Over the past few days actresses who declined his advances have come forward to tell their Weinstein stories, and presumably there are many more who did not fight in order to save their careers.

The astrology chart of Harvey Weinstein (born March 19, 1952 in Queens NY, time unknown) shows his Sun at 29 degrees Pisces – the very last degree of sensitive and Pisces, bleeding into assertive and dominant Aries.  The 29th degree is sometimes called the “anaretic” degree and is considered a critical placement that shows a significant lesson to be learned. In medieval astrology the “anareta” was a planet of destruction and considered to be dangerous.  While modern astrology doesn’t take these significators literally, the 29th degree indicates a completion of some kind of karma and needs to be taken seriously.

The transition from Pisces to Aries involves the lesson of incorporating the assertive leadership of Aries into the compassion and sensitivity of Pisces, but in some cases one sign will react against the other which is what we see in Weinstein’s behavior. The Sun makes no aspects to any other planets (a “singleton”) suggesting an individual who stands alone and finds it difficult to combine one’s energies with others.  (Brad Pitt is another famous Singleton Sun individual.)

Weinstein has Mars (sexuality and drive) in its own […]

The astrology of Shia LaBoeuf’s perpetual troubles

Shia LaBoeuf astrologyShia LaBoeuf has been an acclaimed actor since he won his first award at age 15.  His career as a performer began as a stand-up comedian at the age of 10.  But his long history of troubles with the law began before then when he was arrested for shoplifting at the age of 9.  He was arrested again at the age of 11 for stealing.  As an adult, despite his success in films and great respect from film credits, he continued to indicate a lack of impulse control and ability to manage his rage:

  • In 2005 LaBoeuf was arrested for threatening his neighbor with a knife and driving into his car.
  • In 2007 he was arrested for refusing to leave a Walgreen’s when asked by security.
  • In 2008 he was involved in a car crash and arrested for drunk driving although he was later exonerated for the crash.
  • In 2014 he was arrested for disorderly conduct and trespassing at Studio 54 in New York City after which he began treatment for alcohol addiction.
  • However, in 2015 he was arrested in Texas for public intoxication.
  • In January 2017 he was arrested for misdemeanor assault at a protest rally against Donald Trump although these charges were later dismissed.
  • And finally, on July 8 2017 he was arrested again for public intoxication and disorderly conduct in Savannah Georgia, threatening to kill the policeman who arrested him.

LaBoeuf has the Sun in Gemini, the shapeshifter sign that hungers for experience and easily moves in and out of different roles in life.  His Moon is in Leo, the sign which craves attention and validation from […]
