I wrote this article on the 10th May 2019 and have updated it below. I accurately predicted Meghan’s response to life as a royal.
The most remarkable thing about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Astrology Compatibility Analysis is that their Ascendants are broadly opposite one another in Capricorn and Cancer respectively. Harry’s Midpoint between the Sun and the Moon is virtually exactly conjunct Meghan’s Ascendant (very auspicious) and his Ascendant is directly opposite her Natal Mars, good for sexual attraction. Her Midpoint between the Sun and Moon sits on Harry’s Part of Fortune and also Mercury, both in Virgo. So you can see the simpatico!
Meghan’s Sun, Mercury & Mars are in Prince Harry’s 7th House
Meghan’s Sun, Mercury & Mars are in Prince Harry’s 7th House, the area associated with relationships. To have these key planetary influencers in this area, suggests an almost karmic link between them and plenty of communication flowing back and forth and lots of physical attraction too. Furthermore her Ascendant and North Node are also very helpfully located in this area too.
Meghan’s Venus and Jupiter are in Prince Harry’s 8th House
Meghan’s Venus (representing romantic love) and Jupiter (representing fortune and growth) and interesting also the planet of structure Saturn are all in Prince Harry’s 8th House, the sector connected with deep connections and sexuality.
All this suggests a very natural rapport in terms of what she gets from him in her Horoscope, but how does this all work from Prince Harry’s side of things? Well, his Sun is in her 3rd House (great for everyday communication) and his Mars in her 5th House (superb for physical attraction). But then it gets earthier and watery, with the benefits to Meghan more homely and linked to security.
Key Planetary Aspects
The standout one that leapt out for me (Ascendant and Midpoint apart) was that her Venus is conjunct his Pluto, both in Libra and 4 degrees apart. Her Venus is in her 4th House, home, family, emotions, his Pluto in his 9th House, which suggests adventurism and perhaps why he enjoyed the army so much. I do feel the status he enjoys is a very big attraction for her however but power struggles are also possible under this aspect.
The physical attraction between them in very obvious in their joint charts with her Sun forging fine links to his Venus and Mars, however there are some real challenges too, not least her Saturn squaring his Sun, and her Mercury square his Pluto which can lead to big struggles or sense of restrictions. Also her Neptune squares his Sun (he also has this aspect himself with Neptune in the very sensitive 12th House), creating a potential sense of unreality. Some may argue this is an issue with them as both of them have Neptune afflicted (hers is Quincunx Chiron in the 11th House) but these influences do likely support their compassionate roles and interests.
There are also lots of contacts which suggest a need for freedom, which the role they will have to endure alongside their relationship may ultimately prove to be quite challenging for Meghan, more likely because he has been born into the mindset of service. Whilst her humantitarism may be strong, she has a very cool Moon conjunct Saturn in Libra at the heart of her personal chart, which could see over time, a sense of aloneness even isolation be possible and perhaps even, dare I say it boredom.
Update 13th January 2020…
The remarkable thing about current developments is that Meghan Markle’s Ascendant and Prince Harry’s Sun/Moon Midpoint are both directly opposite the profound gathering of planets in Capricorn, the rare stellium which can create huge potential for change, but not necessarily in a particularly easy or even pleasant way for all concerned. For Meghan, having Saturn and Pluto directly on her Descendant can definitely point towards a complete ending of a relationship. However, equally, the Royal Family have survived many past turbulence’s and the chances are they will adapt to this crisis but whether to use Meghan’s phrase they will all thrive from the changes discussed, remain to be seen.
For Harry, with Saturn and Pluto, both transiting his 1st House of personal identity, this story is not at an end for sure. The last four years have probably been really tough for him at deeply personal level, simply because Saturn has been transiting his 12th House and has in 2019 Squared his Natal Venus, hard for any person giving it’s more psychological complexion and also Saturn’s restrictive and sometimes brutal impact. Even when it was passing through his 11th House, it passed over his Natal Mars, which is no easy transit and may have lead to the reduction in his social circle, and that has been much talked about.
Pleasingly for Harry, his tender Moon in the 4th House, in Taurus, is in direct and helpful Trine with the moving Saturn and Pluto, which hopefully will bring about a restructuring he and his family are happier with.
However Meghan Markle’s Progressed chart is less positive insofar of P. Pluto Squaring the Transiting Pluto, which will also square her Progressed Venus for the next 2 years. Also Transiting Saturn passes over these positions, before moving through her 7th House of relationships opposing her Natal North Node, Sun, Mercury and Pallas and her Progressed and Directed Mars throughout 2021. These oppositions will be repeated by Pluto with a very critical transit on her nodal axis from the 24th March to 10th June 2023 and also the 21st January 2024 followed by the opposition to her Sun in early May 2029. My prediction is that will likely be the time the relationships will have ended. If they DO survive all these astrological pressures, they may then thrive, but even as soon as this year Saturn conjunct’s her South Node in the 7th House, from March 22nd this year, and also as the year comes to a close, scrutiny is likely to increase not decrease from these changes.
The other striking thing about Meghan’s Natal Horoscope is that her 12th House Mars in Cancer (in Fall) squares her Moon/Saturn Conjunct in the 3rd House. This is quite obviously a very tough influence, and can make her prone to strident and pointed mistrust (clashes with siblings and media for sure) and almost serial politics in relationships despite some very compassionate other planetary influences.
Harry also has Moon opposite Midheaven, which points towards a dislocation at times between his worldly role and emotional needs, compounded further more by Saturn on the Midheaven. Heavy karmic stuff. His Mars Square Sun also points to very quick and sometimes dramatic decisions, and a need for movement and variety or plenty of action. No wonder if the poor guy finds all the ceremonial stuff so dull.
Meghan’s Progressed Sun will also be opposed for the next couple of years by Neptune, which can dissolve as well as enchant with mystique, so her energy is likely set to dip during this time, and life can become more challenging with her sense of identity under pressure.
His Progressed Sun will also be squared by Saturn and Pluto and in the case of Pluto for the next near to three years, and this is in his sector of relating and open enemies the 7th House. Currently his Progressed Ascendant is opposite his Progressed Moon, which will of course change quite quickly but in exactly one year’s time Harry’s Progressed Moon will conjunct his Natal Sun in the 8th House. Therefore this too could be a critical point in their tie.
So the couple, in conclusion, are going to have to fight ferociously hard for this tie to thrive as Meghan wishes. I wish them well, and good luck, I feel they will need it!
