The Cosmic Signature of the Little King

So the 7th in line to the British throne was born today. Feisty fella by the looks of him.


I find it fascinating that his Sidereal chart contains an exalted Sun on the Ascendant, with an exalted Moon in the 2nd. This lad will have tremendous vitality, a very noble bearing, and natural instinct for leadership- all this not only because of the exalted rising Sun and exalted Moon, but also due to the Gaja Kesari Yoga formed by the Moon and Jupiter in opposite signs, and the very very tight and conspicuous opposition of Mars and Jupiter which would give a person tremendous courage and the confidence to attempt grand things. There is something of a crusader here. If inspired by a noble cause, he could do much good.

Pluto in fact connects to this Opposition in the Little King’s chart by being less than half a degree from exactly Quincunx and Semi-Sextile to Mars and Jupiter respectively. This implies that his innate zeal for crusading or ‘going big’ is tinged with a powerful sense of purpose. There’s great resolve and forcefulness in him. Around age 30, seen through the lens of Solar Arc Progressions, these three planets will all aspect each other and most likely awaken this forceful and resolute idealism. These three planets will regularly be simultaneously triggered by transits and progressions, but age 30 should be one of the more potent examples (add to that the fact that around that age Saturn returns and transits his 10th House).

This image of bold heroism we get from an exalted rising Sun, with Mars in Opposition to Jupiter, this idea that the Little King will be a ‘man of deeds’, as it were, seems supported by the fact that the Moon occupies the Nakshatra called Krittika, itself symbolized as a razor or flame. This Nakshatra is associated with the mythic hero Karttikeya, the general of the celestial army, giving this Nakshatra an association with ‘fame and larger-than-life endeavors and projects.’ *

I suspect that he will be a forthright speaker. Compare his chart to that of Martin Luther King: nearly the same degree on the Ascendant and Mars (the Sidereal Asc lord, also very close to the same degree in both charts) in the 2nd House of speech.


Mercury in Aries in the 1st House does nothing to tame this indication of fiery speech. In fact Mercury Conjunct Uranus in the 1st House in Sidereal Aries portrays a person with a quick and very active mind; bold, even defiant and provocative in his ideas and manner of communicating.

His Mercury in Aries is not far from Hitler’s Mercury- in Aries in any zodiac. Add to that Rahu in Gemini in the 3rd- this person’s going to express his ideas with enthusiasm and some flair I think. We’ll hear from him for sure.


Like Martin Luther King, again, he has Saturn as 10th lord in the 9th in Sagittarius in the Sidereal/Whole Sign chart. It will be interesting to see what role religion plays, if any, in his life. It looks like the royal scion is less likely than King to become a man of the cloth, having Jupiter, lord of the 9th located in the 8th (whereas MLK had Jupiter in the 1st), not to mention the religious heterdoxy that Ketu in the 9th in Sagittarius can describe. He will like science and logical thought, he’ll appreciate the practical application of knowledge.

Amoung his friends and associates will be found some not-so-royal elements, shown by Rahu in the 3rd House (and lord of the 3rd, Mercury, Conjunct Uranus), as well as Neptune in the 11th House (with Sidereal 11th lord Saturn Conjunct South Node and Pluto). Secrecy or some sense of loss in the realm of friendship or relationships is not improbable with Venus, lord of the 7th House located in the 12th House along with a fairly tight square of Venus and Saturn.

Oh well, all considered, what with Sun Trine Saturn in his chart, he seems to be a good lad who’ll eventually do his mum and his dad and his nanna proud.

God Save the Little King

  1. You Australians think differently than we Americans do. You are still in thrall to
    Britain, and we are not. We don’t believe in kings or royalty. Ugh! That baby is not a little king, and never will be. And I hope Prince Harry will never accede to the throne either. I think he acts out, passively-aggressively doing disgraceful things, trying to punish his father, Charles, for mistreating his mother, Diana.

    1. ‘Little King’ is really just a play on words referencing his astrological similarities to Martin Luther King, and of course, the fact that he does technically have some prospect of becoming a king, and it’s also a nod to his exalted rising Sun which speaks of his embodiment of the King archetype. But rest assured, this ‘Australian’ from down under here in South Africa is more curious than enthralled. I’m neither enamoured nor repulsed. Observing for example that his mum, Meghan, is in Jupiter dasha with transiting Jupiter in the 5th House, and observing that her Progressed Moon less than a quarter of a degree from exactly opposite her natal Sun, is plenty reward for this curiosity, even with such unsavory subjects.

      1. Well, I notice the current Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn, and I find it rather malefic. Think of what happened other times when Saturn and Pluto were conjunct. In Cancer, l914, the start of World War I. In Leo, l948, the fall of the Iron Curtain. In Virgo, l960’s, Vietnam War. In Libra, in the l970’s, ERA Amendment in the US that failed, and women’s rights movement, which raised the divorce rate. In Scorpio, in l980’s, AIDs virus. In Sagittarius, l990’s, trouble with Moslems, religious conflict, shootings in schools. Saturn conj. Pluto now, in Capricorn–trouble for heads of state. Trump has certainly had endless trouble. It should mean trouble for Britain, too, as England is a Capricorn country, if you use the Dec. 25, l066 crowning of William the Conqueror, as the birthdate for England. Anyway, this malefic conjunction could mean trouble for the new baby later on in life.
        Anyway, sorry, I thought you were Australian, not South African
