It’s incredible (and very likely) to think that the Royal Family employs their very own Astrological Advisor, guiding them through the most successful planetary alignments to live out their Royal engagements and events, and now, the Royal Wedding! If there is any day fit for a Prince to marry a Princess, it would be May 19th, 2018.
The Late Princess Diana, Prince Harry’s Mother, was a Cancerean sun sign. She embraced and embodied everything a Cancerean is, emotional, caring & nurturing, family orientated, charitable, humble, loyal to a fault, and incredibly resilient. It’s also very interesting that both Diana’s sons, Prince William and Prince Harry, chose women with strong Cancerean placements within their charts. First, Prince William married Kate Middelton, who has a Cancerearn moon, and now, Prince Harry is set to wed Meghan Markle, who has a Cancerean Ascendent (Rising Sun).
For Prince Harry and soon-to-be, Princess Meghan, Venus moving into Cancer is just another perfect omen to add to what should already be a perfect day to level up their commitment to one another.
May 19th, 2018, is considered to be the best day for Leos and Virgos to marry. Meghan Markle is a Leo, and Prince Harry is a Virgo. At first glance, one might not understand the attraction between a fiery Leo (Meghan) and an earthy smarty-pants Virgo (Harry). However, the real key in astrological compatibility is the ascendant or rising sign – not the Sun signs we’re used to reading about in our horoscopes.
Harry and Meghan were born under the influence of the opposite rising signs of Cancer (Meghan) and Capricorn (Harry). Opposites definitely do attract, especially in this case. Cancer (Meghan’s rising sign) is about security and nurturing, while Capricorn rising (Harry’s rising sun) brings structure and protection. These archetypal Mother (Cancer) and Father (Capricorn) dynamics are being played out here, even though they’re a totally progressive couple.
Although it’s said that neighbouring signs such as Leo and Virgo don’t have so much in common, there are other magnetic aspects in Harry and Meghan’s charts that have created this dynamic royal duo. A man’s Venus, shows what he finds attractive and also the kind of ‘Goddess’ energy he is searching for in a woman. Meghan’s Moon (her inner feminine) is in the sign of Libra, creating a super-sweet love connection.

Meghan’s Venus, and Prince Harry’s Sun are conjuct, which indicates a classic love connection. Meghan’s Pluto, and Prince Harry’s Venus, are conjuct, which is an aspect that indicates magnetic attraction between the two, which goes much deeper than the surface. There is a strong sense of intimacy and a sense of being transformed by love between Meghan and Prince Harry.
In fact, their Moon-Venus placement is one of the most delightful aspects two people can have in their shared chart – it brings the loveliest romantic flow. Meghan’s Venus (what she finds beautiful) is in the sign of Virgo, which means she would be drawn to a man of intelligence – which is why Virgo Harry is totally her ideal guy.
Another positive omen to this Royal Wedding, is that the Moon will be in Cancer, Diana’s sun sign, as they walk down the aisle. The Cancer Moon insures a spirit of warmth, nurturing, and adoration for Harry and Meghan. The special, secret ingredient here, is that Meghan might just remind Harry of his Cancer mom – in the best possible ways under this aspect. Cancer is the sign of motherhood, family and our full range of emotions. So expect major waterworks from everyone involved and everyone who gathers to watch the couple marry.
Lastly, weddings that take place in the zodiac sign of Taurus, will influence the marital bond to be very strong. A marriage in Taurus also promotes security, love and happiness, making this the last of a beautifully long list of positive omens for the royal wedding.
So what can this royal couple expect to discover about themselves in marriage?
Relationships always have their challenges – that’s what helps each individual to grow. And really, we’d be bored to tears if our partnerships were always flawless and challenge-free. Here’s where it gets complicated for Harry and Meghan, both of their Moons are ruled by Venus, creating a mutual desire for love and beauty, but the way they feel about security is quite different.
Meghan’s Libra Moon wants justice, equality, reciprocity, balance, and prefers to think (rather than feel) through emotional situations. There can also be some indecision with this lunar placement. She adores her network of friends and loves playing social butterfly.
Prince Harry, on the other hand, with his earthy, strong Taurus Moon, may crave more comfort, stability and routine. They can sometimes miss each other on the emotional level. Luckily Harry’s Venus in Libra can bridge this gap by playing up his social side, even though that might go against his otherwise introverted nature.
Opposition between Meghan’s Uranus and Prince Harry’s Moon, hints on an element of separation, living apart more often then a conventional marriage, and one partner wanting more freedom than the other.
Their charts suggest they may start having kids sooner, rather than later, adding to the Royal family and their global influence.
It looks like the Royal Family has considered the date of this wedding very carefully to best align with the cosmos to ensure this couple lasts a lifetime. They are the ones who are not only changing the hierarchy, but will change the world with their modern approach, classic love and loyalty, and their grounded healing hearts.
