In that video around 9:15 Prince Harry says, "All the stars were aligned."
That quote made the headlines of BBC news.
God, what a world we live in Hey?? People are happy to brandish the phrase "the stars were aligned" when things are going well; but when things are going bad or just in normal life; they say astrology doesn't exist or how can you believe in such a religion.
Always want the good from the good. If only they opened their mind to this wonderful art.
Crowd surfers. Next we will here from mystic meg on the national radio about her trashy forecasts for the next year, where all earth signs will have a "difficult" year because Pluto is in Capricorn.
What do you think about the prince and his fiancée, Meg? "I think they have a lovely bond as they have one aspect between their Uranus and Pluto so they are on the same wavelength, this could be their year!! Next year they will have a ceremony to get married and then in November 2020 we will hear about their first child which could be spark them to life, as this will affect all cancers and Leo Suns for no good reason"
sven555 , you make a good point. Several, in fact. There are those 'fair-weather friends' of astrology. There's pop astrology. And then there's wannabe pop astrology. I can't tell which hurts the image of astrology the most. The planets speak, we all listen differently, that's all I s'pose. Listen differently or not at all.
Sometimes I hear people talk in near-astrological terms and it seems a shame that they're so close to seeing it - but won't. They refuse. Well, okay, let's continue to believe that astrology is only what the little tacky column in the newspaper tells you it is.
Don't the Royal family believe in astrology? I think they do. I know they were known for using things like homeopathy. Mum would talk about it.
I wonder if her official duties will start around the time that Pluto conjoins her descendant. I don't know if it will be far enough along by the wedding in the Spring, but I'm afraid to look, because if it is, it will be exactly square my Sun.
pufferfishy, I think the image of astrology is still outdated. Most people associate astrology with a lady sitting in a house, reading people's futures through a crystal ball; which is no way near what it really is. It is closer to being a science.
It would be nice to know that the royal family uses Astrology, anela ; at least it will gain some credibility. To be fair, it would be amusing if Prince Harry said "astrology predicted this" instead of "it was written in the stars"
Tr NN @ 10°-7° Leo that month, hitting her natal Leo stellium....
5 May, at noon the Taurus sun and Cap moon form a grand trine with her Venus, and the transiting ASC @ 16 Leo. But I think they usually set the wedding time before noon? I don't know. The noon chart has Uranus right on the MC.
12 May, sun's in Taurus conjunct his natal moon exactly. Transiting draconic Skuld-Atropos conjunct that sun, by the way, like a twist of fate. Transiting draco sun 12 Cap, conjunct Harry's ASC @ 11 Cap. Moon's in Aries that day. This seems like the most straightforward choice.
19 May, the sun will be transiting conjunct their 28° Taurus progressed composite ASC. Venus transiting exactly conjunct 29° Gemini pr comp NN.
Moon's in Cancer, draco moon's in Pisces to match Harry's natal draco placements:
23 Cancer, his draconic sun; 24 Cancer, her ASC 22 Cancer, transiting moon at 12 noon 21 Pisces, his draconic moon 14 Pisces, transiting draconic moon at 12 noon....and this echoes their engagement announcement with the moon in Pisces.
So that's an intriguing day, too. I think I prefer this one just for the thrill of the sun being on a cusp, and the exactness of the progressions, too.
26 May, moon's @ 28 Libra at noon...
MC @ 21 Taurus on his moon (and her pr MC)
Transiting Cap Mars conjunct her pr moon (29 Cap, on their composite MC) and the transiting draconic sun (27 Cap, conjunct Moira) Transiting draconic Mars @ 25 Virgo conjunct his sun
But the sun's moved out of their composite 1st house, and these degrees don't seem tight enough to matter, so I don't know.
I could waste much more time on this but I fear the date will be announced any moment, spoiling the fun.
Interesting! I assume the chart's saying her progressed Venus was conjunct his progressed sun when they got together (2016).
No matching data for when my husband and I got engaged, though his progressed sun (17 Virgo) was trine my natal sun (15 Cap), and my progressed Venus (4 Cap) was trine his natal Venus (6 Virgo).
Paul Westran, the author, made a research about progressed aspects and starting / ending of relationships (with 1300 relationships, which is a pretty good sample I think), and the interesting thing is that he was formerly working in statistics I think, at least he has some good knowledge of it, It was actually the book that restored my faith in astrology. lol Well he used an orb of 2 degrees, though he also observed that sometimes a relationship will happen with 2 degrees or with 1 degree or anything in between and he also mentioned he observed in frequent cases, that if people got together with a progressed aspect, applying at 1,5 degrees, the relationship often fell apart with the 1,5 degree separating, but that has not been a rule.
Nevertheless that was interesting.
I tend to pay more attention to the peak moments of progressions, however most astrologers would agree that they give a background theme, a development, a window of opportunity (as Westran calls it), and it seems that within that times lunations/ eclipses/ transits are really the triggers of that progression, even more reliably so than the exactness of the progression on its own, even though when the progression is within about 10-15 minutes applying/ seperating it seems to be the real hot phase.
But anyway the Sun-Venus-progression seems to be a textbook one, even though there are some couples that break the rule and fafour other aspects than the conjunction or trine as he has found statistically relevant.
I remember I also read there that often a Sun-Venus-square coincides with the impossibility of connection, and in some cases keeps people literally apart, and when it fades, the obstacle falls away, and people are free to connect.
I mention this cause my parents had a Sun-Venus-square in progression when they met, that just had started to separated. And I found it hilarious, that Lancelot and me had his pSun square my pVenus, that was separating by 1°20 the first time I ever saw him, though this was some years before we would eventually meet (which was actually a pretty drawn out process. lol)
When I saw him again on stage, and him me actually, but I refused to see him offstage (though I was being asked repeatedly that evening. lol), his pVenus had been only 10 minutes before exactly trine my natal Sun, while his pMoon was moving through Sag, and if I have his birthtime right actually fell onto my natal Sun-Mercury-conjunction.
Even with me seeing Jude Law that worked (so that window of opportunity, does not just go for actual relationships, but just opportunities of crossing paths, too). his pVenus was slowly starting to apply to conjunct my pSun (though technically it was a bit out of orb at 2°23, but his p Moon-Mercury was falling exactly onto my pMercury-Venus,
oh and funny enough transiting NN was just separating from a conjunction to my pSun and applying to conjunct his pVenus. Last time I saw him on stage this recent april was with his pVenus conjunct my pSun with 0°34 a (It has been a slow and longwinded travel for the Venus-Sun). What was more of a trigger was the fact that his pMoon was opposing my n Mars and conjunct my n DESC, and when I first saw him it was his pMoon falling exact on my pMercury-Venus-Avx and 2 degrees conjunct my n Moon.
So, windows of opportunity, even in the most random of cases. lol
the progression of your husband and you definitely fall into that range, too, and even stronger due to the DW. though usually the applying phase is more powerful.
Interestingly the first time P and me ever exchanged a look, my pSun was separating from a conjunction to his natal Venus, but by 2°04 already, so I guess we should have met 1-2 years earlier. lol
Well we did have a progression, but nothing typical (well we didn`t cross each others path for the next 2 years after that anyway).
my pMars was applying to a partile conjunction with his natal Moon-MC. Nothing too strong, and apparently not strong enough to keep us in contact. Though it is interesting that he was having pVenus on his pSN then, which fell onto my natal BML conjunct his natal Priapus (the true version).
We still don`t have a Sun-Venus-trine or anything. Howeer 2 years ago when we first met outside a stage performance (the meeting he organized for a group of people), my pVenus had just separated from the exact sextile to his natal Sun (0°08); which of course ALSO means it was separating from the quinkunx to his Saturn, I guess for all the bizarre vague lopsided awkward pattern between us in previous years, if I was going to look, I would probably find quite some quinkunxes in progressions, this lopsided of all aspects.
and it was applying to sextile his natal Moon-MC. Well sextiles are not the typical conventional relationship-markers, with statistic relevance, though it seems some couples actually had them. It does make sense though, as we did not really become a couple (well I guess him being married would have been a pretty strong obstacle anyway. lol) , but we did start to connect, and in a slow moving way, friendly, but not too close, which is a perfect description of the sextile I guess. The opportunity to connect, but you are not pushed together.
Actually we had it both ways, just the other aspect was a quintile, which seems to come up, too, occasionally. I find the description of these two aspects very fitting to us actually.
"P's natal Sun is Sextile Kerstin's progressed Venus — orb is 0.1 deg.
This connection is somewhat significant in relationship astrology it is a major significator of friendship and sociability and occurs very often in relationships. It is a temporary dynamic in your relationship and while it can last for an extended period of time, typically it lasts for five years.
It is very possible that you were drawn to each other after being friends or acquaintances for a while. The following couples shared this connection at the outset of their relationships: Princess Diana and Dodi al Fayed; Arnold Schwarzennegger and Maria Shriver, and Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne.
In astrology, the Sun represents the way that we negotiate and Venus represents the way that we compromise, the sextile aspect enables a friendly exchange of energy (or musical resonance) from one planet to another. The only downside in such a relationship is that, despite being called a "sex"tile, this aspect is not as immediately striking as some other types of Sun Venus connection. For this reason the Sun Venus sextile, in isolation, creates a pleasant reciprocal relationship that many people will appreciate. The only issue is that you may not notice each other or consider each other a candidate for a relationship.
Kerstin's natal Sun is Quintile Ps progressed Venus — orb is 1.8 deg.
There is something uniquely unusual about your relationship, but the feelings you have for each other are no different from any other couple. The quintile bestows a creativity which stirs the curiosity. You both find each other fascinating, for different, but very closely related reasons.
Attraction is what the Sun experiences and attracting is what Venus does. It can also be said that the Venus represents the control we all have to determine aesthetic taste, while the Sun represents a part of us that is projected and appreciated by Venus. While both astrological principles are different, they combine in such a way that their roles can be difficult to demarcate. When they connect by the quintile aspect, they tend to be poised in a dance of sublime complexity whose underlying principles are attraction and intrigue.
Whatever your talents and gifts, the quintile in relationships urges you to combine them so that you can utilize them together on the same project.
This is a temporary dynamic of your relationship, although it may occasionally last for a decade or more.
Other couples who shared this connection at the outset of their relationship include: Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward; Enrique Iglesias and Anna Kournikova, and Robert and Ethel Kennedy.
well we also had his pVenus moving into squaring my Neptune - yeah I know. lol The author also wrote something about "lack of definition", which honestly speaking is completely true. Well these have been fallen away now, his pVenus moved out of the square to my Neptune, or actually if using a 2 degree orb is on her way out there. lol
HOwever I found it interesting to note that for the two long lasting relationships P has had, at the beginning there was never a Sun-Venus-trine or conjunction. Though in the first case his pVenus was conjunct her n Jupiter, and in the second case his pVenus was sextile her pSun. And some more progressons of course, however I just found it interesting that these were not the usual suspects, so to speak.
the 19th may date got my interest, for selfish reasons. It is the day of Lancelot`s concert, where I am apparently expected to be present at the "Meet and greet" as well. lol while it is of course intriguing for the royals, I find it interesting as well for me.
"19 May, the sun will be transiting conjunct their 28° Taurus
so this means Tr Sun will be conjunct Lancelot`s pr Sun on 27 Taurus and possibly still affect our pr compospite Jupiter on 26 Taurus.
Transiting Draconic Moon in Pisces?
So at the time after the concert, tr Moon will be approximately at 27 Cancer, conjunct Lancelot`s n Jupiter. lol And opposing my Draco Pluto
Tr Draco Moon will be on 18 Pisces, approximately, falling right onto his natal SN on 17 Pisces, my n Juno on 17 Pisces, his n Ceres and my pr Jupiter on 18 Pisces. lol Well he promised we would get something to drink. Though maybe that was the day after that.
