THE SYNASTRY & COMPOSITE OF KATE AND BABY GEORGE: MADONNA AND CHILD: © Copyright Hilary Bond PhD. All rights reserved. 27 July 2013
Prince William had the ideal mother who adored him and his brother Harry. It seems that his son George also will have the perfect mother. Kate‘s South Node sits on George’s Moon, which means they will be complete as a twosome and feel comfortable with one another. Her Saturn, the ruler of her Sun and Pluto are both in Libra in baby George’s 11th house of friends, so she will be his friend when he is lonely and her normality will ground him when being in the “royal club” is overwhelming. It just so happens that they form the apex of a T square between George’s Sun in 29 degrees Cancer and Moon at 28 Capricorn. Is this significant. What does it tell us? Let’s have a look at how their planetary and archetypal energies merge. I will analyse and celebrate the synastry chart first and then look at a composite chart of Kate and wee baby George next. We do not know Kate’s time of birth but we can look at the aspects.
BABY GEORGE AND HIS MOTHER IN SYNASTRY
1. THE PERFECT RELATIONSHIP.
Kate has her Moon on George’s Sun and his Sun in Cancer is on her Moon. This is tantamount to a perfect relationship…. And so they lived happily ever after.
No, that is not the end of the story of Kate and George. It is a lot more complex than that
My friend Rose asked me “What lessons will Kate teach her new baby?”
And what lessons will this baby teach Kate for that matter?
Well seeing her Sun and Moon are in the 8th and 2nd house and so are George’s everything comes back to the 2nd/8th house axis, even when you look at the final dispositors, which are Pluto in Capricorn in the 2nd and Mars in Cancer in the 8th and even they are in opposition. Wow.
2. BABY GEORGE’S STELLIUM
George has a stellium in his 8th house, even though his Sun in Cancer is not in conjunct with Mercury, Mars, and Jupiter in Cancer those planets are all in Cancer and what is more they are all intercepted. A stellium occurs when four planets or more fall in an astrological house. This configuration creates too much energy coming into the behaviours and activities of that house. The stellium generates obsessive energy. The person with the stellium becomes obsessively focused with the activities of that house, and we all know that the 8th house is already intense. So as George has four planets in the 8th house forty precent of his time will be taken up with things of a lunar-Scorpionic nature. For the reason that any obsession burns you up and burns you out, it is essential that George escapes the affairs of his 8th house by going to the opposite house. A stellium likes an opposition to it. The opposition makes the individual clearly aware that there is a choice whereas a stellium without an opposition can get trapped more easily in the congested house.
Does baby George have a choice? The eighth house is the house of his ancestors and his ancestors on his father’s side are royal and he is an heir to the throne. So he will be watched like a beetle under a magnifying glass. Lyn Koiner suggests that “The 8th House rules all things totally beyond our control and our attitude towards such affairs.” So are things out of control? Is he a butterfly with a pin in it on a corkboard?
No! He isn’t. In press releases from William it has been asked that the press stay away from Kate because the press hounded Diana to death. Kate can also retreat to her parents as she did during her pregnancy. Will Kate allow infringements of her privacy? And for that matter will George as he gets older. Capricorn Sun and Moon people are very private people. George has a Capricorn Moon and Kate a Capricorn Sun. They will expect respect from the general public. Kate has chosen to not have a nanny so as to bring George up as a normal child. Her parents bought Kate up as a normal child so she is from a function home and know how to raise “normal” children.
Kate’s Saturn 21 Libra and Pluto 26 Libra is both square baby George’s Sun in Cancer in the 8th house and his Moon in Capricorn in the 2nd house. This means she will provide a challenge (square) to him to be balanced (Libra) and have boundaries (Saturn) for all that water (emotion) and his cardinal (impulsive) Sun and moon in Capricorn and Cancer. Strongly Cardinal people (he has 5 planets in cardinal signs) are ambitious, enthusiastic, independent, and active and they often fail to finish what they start. Kate with her ruling planet (Saturn) in Libra will bring balance, harmony, boundaries, grounding, and companionship and teach co-operation to George as he will no doubt be headstrong. As all George’s 8th house stellium has the capacity to be quite intense and compulsive Kate will be able to balance that with her own power and ability to transform (Pluto in Libra) any negativity in George.
The 8th House stellium must be in control of one’s own resources and finances. If not, situations that seem totally beyond his/her control or upheavals seem to plague the life. Gaining control over the uncontrollable is important so that studies in the occult, life after death, medicine, holistic health, financial planning are good outlets. In handling large amounts of money, the individual should always be personally in charge. The healing talent of the 8th House is taking control, orchestrating the changes and repairs alone and then releasing it. George’s mother’s name of Middleton is indicative of balance and breathing out or releasing pent up emotion. And balance this baby needs because of the stellium George has; four planets in Cancer and four planets in the 8th house. How very intense and full on. A stellium is indicative of Arian behaviour and people with stelliums act like they are driving a racing car. People with stelliums have lots of energy and do nothing by half.
3. KATE & GEORGE’S YOD
Interestingly enough George’s Mars conjunct Jupiter in Cancer are the apex of a yod formed by his mother’s Uranus in his first house and her Mercury in Aquarius in his second house. This provides the air he doesn’t have. It balances the very intense, watery, family- oriented, sensitive energy (Jupiter-Mars in Cancer in the 8th) with a self-reflectiveness (Uranus in his first) and an ability to analyses his values and lightened up his confidence (Kate’s Mercury in George’s 2nd house. It is so synchronistic that Kate has five planets in air (Venus Mercury in Aquarius and Mars Pluto and Saturn in Libra) and George has no air planets, but Kate only has one planet- Jupiter, in water and George has
4. THE BALANCE OF THE SECOND HOUSE
As I said before the balance for George’s 8th house stellium is his second house and where Kate’s Sun activates George’s Capricorn Moon and Pluto. Everything in the 2nd house where his Moon and Ascendant ruler Pluto lies, points to values, financial affairs, possessions, investments, earning power, and gain or loss through one’s own efforts. It indicates inner talents and resources and need for fulfilment, your emotional feelings and self -worth. Because it’s a house of money it’s also a house of liberty. Kate will teach George all of this and so will her father, Michael Middleton, because the Middletons are self- made millionaires. The name Middleton is indicative of balance. And balance this baby needs because of the stellium George has; four planets in Cancer and four planets in the 8th house. How very intense and full on. A stellium is indicative of Arian behaviour and people with stelliums act like they are driving a racing car. People with stelliums have lots of energy and do nothing by half.
Kate’s Uranus is George’s first house is about teaching him self-reflectiveness seeing he has no air and his Saturn in the 11th house of friends (an air) house has Saturn in it. So this boy needs to learn the art of communication, analysis and cool logic, rather than emotional intensity, which is what he will have with so many water planets in his intense, watery, emotional 8th house. Liz Greene calls the 8th house the house of the Erinyes, ancient Greek goddesses who made people “driven.” The fact that both Kate and George have an opposition means that the lesson here is balance and poise and what a mother perfect to teach this child balance and poise because she is the archetype or epitome of poise. Look how she has blossomed since she met William.
A NEW KING ARTHUR: POSSIBILITIES
Although William and Kate have shown no public interest in pagan matters Charles is very interested in holistic health and organic agriculture and healthy ecology and so was Diana was interested in astrology and New Age matters. The Queen adheres to homeopathic medicine rather than allopathic medicine. Because Charles receives such a large income from the Duchy of Cornwall he receives no money for being a royal (on the civil list.) The money from his organic food grown on his farm goes to charity.
What I am about to suggest is more speculation about baby George’s role as a Saint George or new King Arthur as one who would give hope to the people of Britain where there are so many anti-monarchists and republicans.
What I write was actually part of a lesson to my introductory students. Uranus is the apex of a T square in which Pluto in the 2nd house in Capricorn and Mercury-Mars-Jupiter are part.
In George’s 8th house sit three planets in conjunction. MERCURY (communication) + MARS (Initiative, fighting spirit, life force,) + JUPITER (expansive, big, lots of) together means that George has the potential to have huge (JUPITER) fighting spirit (MARS) in the way he communicates (MERCURY) from his unconscious influence of his ancestors (8TH HOUSE) who create great feelings (CANCER) for his homeland (CANCER).
URANUS in George’s 4th house squares MERCURY + MARS+ JUPITER. This means that George’s ancestors are driving him to awaken (Uranus) the energy of the land and his roots (4th house) to rise and awaken (URANUS) rather than be depressed and miserable about the economy (Cancer) and become an economically sound (Cancer) nation and bring hope to his people. Cancer rules mass consciousness.
With PLUTO (in 2nd house in Capricorn) OPPOSITON (awareness) MARS conjunction MERCURY conjunction JUPITER, George has the awareness and ancestral abilities to become a self- made billionaire and financier (Pluto in 2nd in Capricorn) like his maternal grandparents. Because of his royal position he will inherit (8th house planets) much property and land especially in Cornwall, which is rich in mines (Pluto). George will be able to drive himself greatly to think (Mars conjunct Jupiter conjunct Mercury) of massive (Jupiter+ Pluto) schemes to enrich his homeland country (Cancer) of Britain (ruled by Cancer.) His economic and financial abilities (Pluto in Capricorn and Jupiter in Cancer, money will be huge issue in his life and if he uses them to teach men and women in the financial areas of the British government his country will rise again and he can help the poor and needy (Pluto sextiles Neptune conjunct Chiron in Pisces in his 3rd house) and Mars conjunct Mercury conjunct Jupiter in Cancer trine Neptune Chiron. Chiron always acts as a bridge and like Diana and his parents Wills and Kate he will be a beloved royal person (fixed star Regulus conjunct Venus in his chart is the most elevated planet in chart.) Therefore he will be a beloved bridge to the people in Britain.
With VENUS TRINE PLUTO he has the means to restore and transform the old (Pluto in Capricorn in Britain) economically and as Pluto in the 2nd house trines Virgo, he has the confidence. Thus on a micro level (Virgo) as well as macro (Jupiter) one may believe he can l restore not only hope, but self-confidence and economic glory so there is no longer inequality, hopeless ness and unhappiness among those who believe themselves to be forgotten and that life has treated them unfairly. Chiron is an indicator of unfairness and his North Node is in Scorpio (healing). His Mercury also indicates communication to the masses in Cancer.
Because Charles as a Grandfather will be such an inspiration (Charles’ Sun is in Scorpio and George’s North node and Ascendant are in Scorpio) Charles should be a great influence to George. Charles’ Chiron is on George’s ascendant and acts as a bridge to holistic ways of thinking. Charles’s Moon is in George’s 5th house of fun.
BABY GEORGE AND KATE: COMPOSITE CHART
With composite Sun in Libra this suggests that people will see Kate and baby George as a well matched pair, whose essence is balance, and equality.
The composite Moon in Aries suggest that this relationship will serve to pick you both up emotionally, but you do need to take a break from each other emotionally or you will burn out.
With composite Mercury in Libra there will be balance and fairness in this relationship with a meeting of minds. Your mission together will be as intellectual peacemakers, who will try to get all parties together to improve communication.
The composite Venus will be in Sagittarius which means a willingness to pursue your desires in an easy-going and friendly fashion and this allows you to get what you want without confrontation.
You have wide ranging goals and aspirations and you don’t like to get in each other’s way and with Mars in Sagittarius you will like to travel and have a great interest in ethics, honesty, the law and higher education and spirituality. .
Composite Jupiter in Aquarius means lots of friends. Because we don’t know Kate’s time of birth we have no house positions.
COMPOSITE ASPECTS: Now for aspects. With Sun conjunct Mercury your heads and hearts are in the same place. You always know what each other is talking about.
Your composite Moon will be conjunct Saturn which means you might bottle up feelings and this might occasionally kill spontaneity and love. This is a bit like driving at full speed with the breaks on here, because the Moon is in Aries, but conjunct Saturn. I suspect Kate will try to teach George restrain in his watery emotions.
There is also a Pluto conjunct Venus and Mars in Sagittarius and with Moon and Saturn in Aries that will mean five planets in fire. There will be lots of energy where Kate and George are. With this triple conjunction there will be lots of intense magnetism, love and affection and desire for happiness in your relationship. And there will be lots of plans to make it bigger and better. The only thing you that you both need to understand everything properly to commit and there will be a pleasant air of restrained desire here. If everyone had this talent to get the most out of the least then the world’s resources would be in better shape. It may seem in some ways that your relationship is too formal, but they don’t see behind the scenes. This will be a great business relationship because you will be able to stretch your money further than most and combined with the 2nd house emphasis in the synastry chart Kate will teach William a lot about business and money husbandry. You will together make the most of your life for very little effort.
With Sun opposite Moon this will be an intense relationship where neither takes each other lightly. The only problem here is that this relationship is so intense you may run out of steam occasionally, but if a positive view is always held you’ll be okay. But with William and probably Harry and the four grandparents and aunts and cousins this won’t be a problem, for with all George’s Cancer one of his key words will be family. There are a lot and they are all happy: Grandma Carole and Camilla; Grandad Charles and Michael and Auntie Eugenie, Beatrice and, Zara and Uncle Harry; all such happy chappies and I’m sure they’ll all be like clucky hens.
The Venus and Mars sextile the Jupiter in Aquarius so there will be lots of travelling with friends as well as education with friends. You will have lots of everything: love, good times and you will as a partnership take things to their potential.
Venus and Mars will also sextile Saturn. On the other hand to balance the excess of Jupiter there is also an attitude of common sense from Saturn and that less is better with money and resources. Indeed this Saturn balances the Sun conjunct Mercury square Neptune which can tend towards confusion, but there is always William to bring grounded strength.
There are four planets in air and five in fire so there will be lots of energetic communication. The composite chart is weak in earth, but it has a strong Saturn. Except for the Pisces South Node there is no water, which seems a sensible balance for George’s overabundance of watery, sensitive feelings. Neptune is in Virgo and the North Node is in Virgo but we have no idea what the ascendant would be. It all actually looks like a good balance synastry and composite wise.
George is another guise of Archangel Michael, because Michael and George are the same archetype- fiery protector and defender of the weak. Saint George is the patron saint of England. Kate’s chart perfectly fits the chart of England: the coronation chart of William the Conqueror and she is the perfect mother for a little English Prince in this age where the royals are kept under a magnifying glass. Perfection is what the public wants and there are continual cries of wasting public money. So this can be no coincidence that this baby has four planets in the house of other people’s resources. His mother and his father will obviously teach him austerity and the careful husbanding of resources. It is possible if George doesn’t grow up to be a photographer or psychologist that he could become a financier, tax agent or banker. These all fit the mould of Sun, Mercury, Jupiter Mars in the 8th, but my money is also on a sailor; a naval person, because there have been and are so many warriors in the family and the ruler- esoteric and exoteric ruler of his soul path- ascendant is Mars. Whilst Kate will watch over his Sun and Moon; his logic and intuition; his consciousness and burgeoning awareness William will be watching that his fieriness is channelled into sensible areas and what better area for George would be air –sea rescue like his Dad.
