Prince William was born on June 21, 1982 at 9:03 pm in London England. He is a 0° Cancer Sun born on the world axis. More importantly there was a solar eclipse that day at 29.47 of Gemini. Being born on a Solar Eclipse is a symbol of royalty. There is a sense of destiny about such a birth. A special kind of person is being incarnated and coming in on a new wave of energy. On Tuesday, November 16 the announcement was made of Prince William’s engagement to Kate Middleton. Interesting to note that Venus is stationing direct at 28° Libra, the sign of engagement and while Venus was retrograde mostly through Scorpio the engagement was kept secret and buried. This is noteworthy in itself but what is even more fascinating is the upcoming Lunar Eclipse on December 21, 2010 at 29.21 of Gemini. This is essentially the same degree of the Solar Eclipse on which he was born. The engagement is announced on the incoming energy of the lunar eclipse bringing to light the upcoming year and marriage plans. Lunar eclipses have a Libra feel to them since the Sun and Moon are 180° apart from each other. It will be a year of emotional fulfillment, fruition and an increased desire to relate as there is a need to integrate two facets of ourselves. Things come to light as opposed to solar eclipse symbolism of new beginnings and being a bit in the dark. He is fulfilling the promise, hope and destiny of his birth as a royal prince. The world axis symbolism ensures this will be played out on a public stage in a grand scale. I love astrology!
