THE NEW ROYAL BABY: CHARTING THE ANCESTRAL SYNCHRONY AND BENIFICENT ANCESTRY OF KATE AND WILLIAM’S BABY SON. © Copyright to Hilary Bond PhD. All rights reserved.
The accurate and verifiable data for many family histories seems to dry up about the 1600s, even when we may consult our gene pools through science. Most birthdates were not kept and many baptism dates were kept in family bibles, rather than keeping actual birth dates. This is not so in royal families. We find that royal historians have kept records of not only accurate birth dates, but also birth times. I love family history and looking at the patterns that come up with aspects, signs and planets. Facial similarities also fascinate me and behaviour patterns. This love of patterns no doubt comes from my Venus conjunct Athena, and a North node in Virgo. Oh, let’s not forget an emphasis on Capricorn and Cancer for a love of family history. So the birth of the well-loved and eagerly- awaited royal baby Cambridge is a fascinating study. Let’s have a look, will we.
ARMED WITH HIS HOROSCOPE WE LOOK WITH ENTHUSIAM AT THE NEW BABY’s CHART.
Kate and William’s new royal baby was born on the 22nd July, 2013 at 4.24 pm. Australian astrologer Bernadette Brady had amassed some royal statistics some years before which suggested many British monarch’ s Sun and Moon predominated in the degrees between 28 to 2 degrees. With this in mind I looked at various birth times for the coming Cambridge baby’s chart. I did expect him to be born on the 22nd, but at 6:16 rather than 4:24pm. Fate and royal genes were to decree that this long expected wee soul was to be born with a 29 degree 58 minute Cancer Sun, just like his father Prince William; his grandma Princess Diana; his grandad Michael Middleton and some very powerful monarchs who were ancestors: Edward I, and James I. Henry VIII was also a Cancerian, but he is not a direct ancestor.
The royal Baby’s Ascendant is 27 Scorpio; his MC is 20 Virgo. He has his Sun, Mercury, Mars and Jupiter in the 8th house in Cancer. The Sun is 29’ 58’; Mercury is 13; Mars 6 and Jupiter 5 Cancer. His North Node is 5 Scorpio in his 12th house . The Baby’s Moon is 28 Capricorn in the 2nd and his Pluto is also in the 2nd at 10 degrees. Neptune and Chiron are both in his third house at 5 and 13 respectively. His Uranus is in the 4th house in Aries at 12 degrees and his Venus is up in the 9th house in Virgo.
WHAT DO I SEE?
First I’ll look at daddy William’s relationship (or synastry) with his son. We must remember that William’s mother Diana was a wonderful mother. She not only did fun things with Harry and William like take them to fun parks, but she taught them compassion and how to reach out to people in trouble: people in war torn countries; people with missing limbs; terrible illnesses; poverty stricken people. So it is obvious without even comparing William’s chart, with his beloved son, that this is what he and his brother Harry will do with this new boy.
What do we see first? William’s Uranus and Neptune are in his new son’s first house. To me this means William will be a father who will bring self-reflectivity (Uranus) and an interest in spirituality (Neptune) to his son. William will seem glamorous (Neptune) and unpredictable (Uranus) to his son. William will bring creativity and higher awareness (Uranus) to his son. They will probably go flying and be interested in technology (Uranus) and go sailing (Neptune) and meet with people who are disadvantaged (Neptune.)
What jumps out though to me is the connections in the baby’s 8th house. First of all the 8th house is about the support one receives from other people: financial, moral, spiritual and physical, so this is a lucky boy. The 8th house also indicates legacies, trusts, wills, taxation, insurance matters as well as secrets and sexual matters. Spiritual and physical regeneration, psychological rebirth and death are also covered by this house and will be interests of William and Kate’s son. It is also a house of surgery and along with the 6th house will reveal illness. Cancer planets indicate stomach focus.
The 8th house according to astrologer Erin Sullivan is the house of ancestors. It is the house of one’s “ancestral legacy” says Erin in her book on The Astrology of Family Dynamics on page 187. She suggests it is where we find the inheritance we have been left by our ancestors, but this inheritance has stringent rules. This codicil along with the royal baby’s Saturn in the 11th house suggest that the group (clan and his friends) baby Cambridge belongs to is the royal British family that stretches back through Europe over 1300 years. Princess Diana called them “the firm.” So these people will relatives and ancestors will protect him as long as he sticks to the system. Here baby Cambridge as he grows older will be the pontifex Maximus (as Erin Sullivan calls it) between his ancestors and himself. In the Catholic religion, the Pope is the pontifex and the Pharaohs of Egypt had a similar role. So he will be very special. Looked at along with his Neptune conjunct Chiron in his 3rd house in Pisces we almost see the rainbow bridge which White Buffalo Calf Woman uses to connect the heart and spirit to the Divine.
With all the love this baby has created worldwide it is obvious that this rainbow bridge has begun. In the 3rd this signifies a strong ability to use his intuition, so this wee soul will no doubt be whole brained, rather than right or left-brained. Again with Neptune and Chiron in the third he has an ability to bridge interdimensional realms. Chiron is interdimensional and has the ability to come to the aid of those who are overcome with distress and emotions and be grounded by Chiron. To me Chiron’s mythology and his relationship with Neptune in ancient times suggest this. Baby Cambridge’s Mercury trine Chiron and Jupiter conjunct Mars trine Neptune also suggest an interest in the paranormal and photography as well. He probably will also love dance, ballet and skiing, surfing, fishing and water sports. His Jupiter in Cancer suggests an amazing ability in cooking, entertaining and great compassion. There is a sense of great serenity with these aspects. So as William’s Sun and Moon in early Cancer conjunct his son’s Jupiter, Mars and Mercury. If his son does follow William into the armed forces it will most likely be in the navy like his great-great Prince Phillip and his great-great-great –great grandfather George V (grandfather of the Queen); both of whom were in the navy.
I would like to continue here with baby Cambridge’s gifts from his ancestors. Mercury in the 8th suggests a gift for translating ancestral knowledge into a work of art. The “family history here is rich in mystery and the search for ancestral roots will be [fun and] productive”, says Erin Sullivan (p. 192). Because Mercury here in the house of Scorpio and Pluto is the psychopomp baby Cambridge will have a gift for putting any ghosts to rest. That certainly indicates Diana, but also maybe the “princes in the tower” (Edward VI and his brother Richard) as this is also a house of research. I am reminded here of Oscar Wilde’s story of the Canterville ghost, which I cried in. Please read it. It is about the innocence of a child with a pure heart breaking a curse that will not allow a family ghost to rest.
Mars in the 8th suggests a warrior who needs to focus his warrior energy and not let it turn into undirected anger. If this wee baby has siblings it would good to work on diffusing any sibling rivalry and resultant jealousy. When we see Mars in the 8th house of ancestors we know that he comes from a family of warrior’s. William’s ancestor William the Conqueror who took the English crown in 1066 at the Battle of Hastings was from Normandy. If we look at the word derivation of the word Normandy, this indicates the Norsemen or Vikings took this area of France as their own. So wee baby Cambridge has Viking ancestry and we know so many of his ancestors were warriors. His father William, grandad Charles, great grandad Phillip; great-great-grandad George V, as well as his ancestors Henry VII, Henry V; Edward III, Edward I and Henry II were all warrior kings or princes (Phillip and Charles.) So a career in the armed forces is on the cards.
This royal baby also has his Jupiter in his 8th house: what an intense stellium, all in Cancer and with a Scorpio ascendant! I suspect the wee son of William and Kate will not be a person to cross, as with Pluto and Mrs ruling his ascendant, and his Sun’s ruler in Capricorn he holds great power and respect. But, to return to Jupiter, this boy will have a fascination with why people do things and why cultures develop the way they do. Here he has much in common with his grandad Charles. So this royal baby will be a natural psychologist and cultural anthropologist. Like William and Diana he will have a natural enthusiasm to provide compassion for people who are crossing the threshold to death. I have no doubt his prayers, compassion and natural psychopomp abilities will help them.
For the time being this is enough, as I really wanted to make a small splash with a quick look William and Kate’s baby’s destiny. I am sure you will join me sending blessings for the good health and happiness to this new baby, his parents and ancestors. I will be writing more on baby Cambridge’s ancestry and his synastry with his family, but at the moment I have so much on my plate. I apologise for not looking more at Cancer, but will look at this in my next article. I am sure you will all realise that Cancer people love families, are sensitive and need privacy. Nor have I analysed the grand trine in water. My next article will look at the new baby with his grandad Michael Middleton. What a fortunate baby this is to have so much love on tap.
I wish all who read my work joy and positive abundance in your life,
