Despite denials by Kate and William that they did not know the sex of their unborn baby, along the way, close friends appeared to be sending many signals that it was a girl. So many signals, in fact, that I started to believe that there was method in the couple’s madness and it was surely a boy. But no, at 8 34 on the morning of 2 May, a baby girl arrived.
At that precise moment in time the sign of Cancer was rising with beautiful Venus in Gemini a little above the horizon. The Moon in fair and balanced Libra is in perfect harmony with Venus. Based on these things alone, the new princess will be much loved and much admired. She will be a beauty – graceful, musical and charming. Utterly adorable from day one.
As we astrologers often see when we look at the charts of families, there are major connections and clear resonances. The princess’s rising degree (5 of Cancer) is William’s Moon, George’s Mars-Jupiter conjunction and since Kate also has her Moon in Cancer there is a close connection there too.
As far as the Grandparents go, it is Kate’s mother, Carole, who has the closest link – her Moon in Taurus is on the same degree as the princess’s Sun – and Grandpa Michael also has a powerful connection since his Sun in the early degrees of Cancer. While new baby Cambridge will be loved by both sets of grandparents it will be Kate’s with whom she feels the strongest bond. And, last but not least, there is an echo of her late Grandmother Diana in her chart, but it’s just a faint echo: this little girl will not walk in Diana’s shoes.
