Here in the UK, we seem to have a very relaxed attitude this time around to the wedding of William and Kate Middleton in a couple of weeks time. Maybe the current mood in the UK reflects the relationship of the happy couple to be? What do the stars have in store for them? Let’s take a look…
Although we only have a confirmed birth time for William and not Kate, luckily after looking at the potential time that Kate could have been born at on 9th January 1982, it does not make too much of a difference to the synastry and combined charts for them both.
Prince William is only 5 months younger than Kate so the compared charts for the two are very similar in respect of the outer planets. Looking at the faster moving planets from the Sun through to Saturn, the relationship between the two is rather lovely. William is a New Moon Cancerian, so very emotional and security conscious and his Sun and Moon are complemented nicely by Kate’s serious Capricorn Sun and her Moon also in Cancer. Emotionally they are in tune and when William does worry as Cancerians invariably do, then Kate will keep his feet on the ground. William has a very chatty, on the go Mercury in Gemini. He will always want to keep up with the latest news and his brain is very restless, flitting from one subject to the next. Kate’s Mercury in cool technical Aquarius is in trine aspect. Both Mercurys are in air signs, so this couple will forever be chatting, picking each other’s brains for ideas; with Kate’s Mars trine William’s Mercury there will plenty of lively debate between the two. In relationships, communication is key to long term success and William and Kate will never have problems in this side of things.
Kate’s Mercury and Venus sit together in Aquarius. Venus in Aquarius often conveys film star looks especially to women and Kate certainly has star quality fizzing out of her, a sort of cool unapproachable yet hugely kind and sympathetic appeal. Her Venus is in trine aspect to William’s Mars, the classic Venus/Mars combination of the star struck lovers. This is an easy going romantic love between them and they will be very comfortable in each other’s company. With Mars conjunct Mars with one degree of each other, they will push each other forward in their respective goals and projects. The only slight problem on the synastry chart is a “potential” square between Kate’s Moon and William’s Saturn. His duties will put a dampener on her emotional state. If Kate was born between around 10.00 and 14.00, then her Moon conjuncts William’s north node, a sort of fated connection – almost like that they were always meant to be together. All in all, the match between them is remarkably relaxed and easy going, and the mood of the British public can be seen in the relaxed vibe they send out.
Looking more long term, I move to the composite chart. Here the lack of a birth time does not affect the overall look of the chart radically – I have looked the the possibilities of Kate being born from early morning to late at night. Over time couples change, their priorities differ as they get older and the composite chart can show how any tensions may play themselves out over the course of the relationship. This composite chart is very interesting.
The thing I notice immediately is a powerful t-square between Sun Mercury opposite Mars squaring onto the Moon at the point of the t-square. The Sun Mercury reflects the synastry chart in that there will always be good communication between William and Kate and there is love and friendship with Sun Mercury in conjunction to Venus. The square to the Moon and more pointedly the opposition to Mars indicate plenty of energy that will drive on the relationship. The Sun Moon square can be tricky and troublesome and is often seen in the chart of people infatuated with each. The addition of Mars in the mix will mean that when there is a disagreement there will be a full on shouting match, however the resentment will not last. Mars is able to forgive and forget quite easily.
Composite Mars is conjunct Saturn which is at the best frustrating. It’s almost like when one is hot, the other is cold. When one wants to act, the other doesn’t. Kate and William over time may work at cross purposes to each other and this is something they will have to adjust to, giving each other enough space to compensate for their differing moods and desires. One other problem on the horizon is the quindecile between Pluto and Sun/Mercury. This indicates a power struggle behind the scenes. Remember one day William will be King, however the one with her feet firmly on the ground will be Kate. Capricorns by their very nature being ruled by Saturn like to have authority and to run things. Will serious Kate try to run things from behind the scenes? Taken to extremes, an opposition between Pluto and the Sun can lead to all out warfare if a relationship does break up. Now I am not saying that this will happen for sure, however the possibility of an intense power struggle over time does exist. Pluto widely conjuncts Jupiter which suggests growth. The longer they can stay together, the more they will benefit from the union, in understanding and wisdom. The composite chart also does show an electric attraction between the two with Venus in trine aspect to Uranus. This is the spark that brought them together, the moment when Kate walking down the catwalk at a fashion show caught William’s eye, and forever that attraction will remain between them.
All synastry and composite charts have good and bad points and the essence of a marriage is to adapt, to change and grow with your partner. What I can say is that there is great communication, attraction and love between them and if they can resist the temptation to step on each others shoes in their very public roles in the future, then this marriage to be has a very real chance of being a successful one.
When the marriage does take place and we have an official time, I will add to this post by looking at the marriage chart.
