The royal baby finally arrived Monday and, after months of speculation, Buckingham Palace confirmed it is a baby boy. While parents Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have yet to reveal their son’s name, a palace statement has revealed their baby was born at 5:26 a.m.
Based on this birth time, astrologer, writer and host of “Stars Like Us”Aliza Kelly was able to create the baby’s birth chart and explain to INSIDER what the Duke and Duchess of Essex’s son’s birth chart means. For those who don’t know, a birth chart, according to astrologers, is a snapshot of the sky at the time and location of one’s birth and is said to give insights about one’s personality.
According to Kelly, the specificity of the baby’s birth time is extremely important as the moon had, quite literally, just gone into Gemini.
“If he was born just 26 minutes earlier, the moon would have been in Taurus – which yields a completely different lunar energy,” Kelly said. “The baby’s moon in Gemini is quick, intelligent, and communication-driven. No doubt this royal bb has the potential to be an ‘influencer’ in the future.”
With a moon confirmed in Gemini, the baby’s rising and sun signs are both Taurus. An earth sign, people under the bull sign are often known for their appreciation of the finer things in life. They are also known for their unshakable loyalty.
“Being born right at dawn, the sun is creating a conjunction to the Ascendant (horizon line) through the 1st House. This is extremely important because the Sun in the 1st House definitely wants to be seen and appreciates visibility,” Kelly explained.
As a royal, it sounds like this baby is right on track to handle fame and fortune gracefully, just like his parents.
“Speaking of influence, the royal baby has Neptune in Pisces in the 11th House of distant relatives. This could make it difficult for him to differentiate ‘friend’ from ‘fan:’ a problem many individuals in the public eye encounter,” Kelly said.
Typically, Kelly said she avoids making too many predictions about a baby’s chart based on the number of ways life can play out, but she does say she will keep an eye on his Mars-Jupiter opposition.
“This hard aspect is exact at 23º in Gemini-Sagittarius in the 2nd House (personal finances) to 8th House (inherited finances) axis, so I’m thinking that the royal baby may find himself frustrated, perhaps even resentful, about what will inevitably be his extremely atypical reality,” Kelly said. “Further, with a stellium in the 12th House (the area of the chart linked the past lives), reinforces the fact that he was born into an extremely historic (and controversial) lineage.”
Kelly’s final observation of the newborn royal is of the placement of Saturn, the symbol of the patriarchy, at the top of his chart, which she said is associated with long-term legacy.
“Whether he likes it or not, this baby is royalty, and he has the chart to prove it,” she said. “And, for those expert astrologers curious about the role of Pluto and South Node at the top of the chart … well, only time will tell. But we definitely know this royal baby has the potential to shake s— up in a profound way!”
