For those of you wondering if the marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton is fated, defying all odds – it’s true! The remarkable birth of Prince William on a Solar Eclipse – meeting of the Sun and the Moon – on the Summer Solstice has dazzled many astrologers for years, as this reflects the “Solstice King” of the old myths of the UK. When studying the chart of Kate, lo and behold, she was born on the Lunar Eclipse just after the Winter Solstice in the same year as Wills!
As many of you who know the basics of astrology are aware, the Sun is the “King” and the Moon is his sacred feminine counterpart. For those of us north of the equator, the Winter Solstice is the darkest day of the year and feminine in nature. The Summer Solstice is the longest day of the year and masculine in nature. Eclipses are considered to be the windows or gateways through which we communicate with all that is beyond time and space.
Clearly, there is “destiny” here! Those rude enough to call her “Waity, Katie” weren’t as aware as she… this strong Capricorn with her gentle moon in Cancer was not about to walk away from her destiny, or “wouldn’t fall off the mountain” might be more appropriate to a mythic “sea goat” Capricorn figure. Speaking of figures – thanks to the paparazzi’s tendency to publish bikini photos of the young lady – it is clear that she could have been a swimsuit model, but she was no common “commoner.”
The historical cycle of the eclipse Kate was born under is considered to be “1 South” in the Jansky-Brady* method that considers when the eclipse series began (1729 AD) and ends (2973 AD). This is a newer cycle, and it is all about new ideas. Princess/Queen Catherine (Kate) may feel compelled to bring in new ideas, not only regarding what is best for all, but certainly what is best for her husband.
In contrast, the historical cycle of the eclipse William was born under is considered to be “2 Old North” in the Jansky-Brady which began in 792 AD and ends in 2036 AD, likely within his lifetime. Prince William reflects the end of a cycle; in this case it would likely be the monarchy’s role as it has been in the past.
Just to add a little fun to this, my dear friend and famous cross-cultural mythologist-historian-astrologer, Dr. Dennis Harness, let me know that Vedic/Indian astrologers believe that Princess Diana was a reincarnation of an Indian princess at the time of the Raj when the British came to dominate the Indian people. This Princess vowed to bring down the English monarchy.
This is a very interesting, given that Diana gave birth to him on this day, and that Kate has the new ideas he needs for his legacy to survive in a form that could be acceptable to a former “Indian Princess” (Diana) looking to end the oppression of people in every sense.
Kate, who I understand wishes to be called Catherine now (more appropriate to a princess or queen), will likely be a phenomenon alongside her Solstice King. Might “bringing down the monarchy” be interpreted as the “People’s Princess” giving birth to a young man who marries a “commoner?” I doubt that is profound enough. However, if the Solstice King and his Queen reflect the chivalry of King Arthur (his ancient ancestry) along with the love of the people’s well-being as the foremost goal of the monarchy (as her Cancer Moon would wish), might their role become something much more appropriate to our times – true leadership figures representing fierce protection of all life and culture?
This beautiful couple has much to do with our ancient past and our amazing future. Let’s all look on in wonder as we watch the stars!
