Princess Charlotte. Girl in Wonderland.

Double Venus ruled princess, Taurus Sun and the Libra Moon.  This is a girl who is rational, charming, devoted, harmony seeking, a realist with powerful magnetism and a lively social conscience.  And with that Cancer Rising there is an instinctive sensitivity, gentleness and tact in dealing with others. 

Sounds a bit like Duchess Kate, right?  Not quite.  Look a bit deeper under the hood and what you will find is a person who is drawn to complex undercurrents and subtle life matters with great depth and insight, and a need to use her inner vision, her inspirational energies.

Charlottes birth chart reminds me of the mythological creature Alice in Wonderland, and they share profound parallels.  Falling down the rabbit hole, finding themselves in a strange land and absorbing a wide gamut of impressions, encountering things that are awesome and fascinating as well as strange, obscure and disturbing.  It’s the realm of the psyche, the imaginal realm of the unconscious and by integrating this unconscious into consciousness the Mars/Neptune mp around the Meridian indicates she can use her inner vision, her inspirational energies as a creative fount for connection through social services or the arts. 

And so artistic, literary or communication abilities are strongly indicated in her chart as we have Venus and Mercury, the planets of love and art, communication and thinking, in strong connection to her Meridian, and remember the Meridian is the soul’s essence or point of individuality.

But there are blocks and complexities around emotional expression with Charlotte, and there are several indications that an evolution and transformation must take place and its roots are within her ancestry in a smothering matriarchal line.  Now the blocks that are showing up are within generations past.  Interestingly Kate surfaces as a figure of gentleness and grace as evidenced by the Pisces Meridian and the Neptune conjunction of the Meridian.  Kate can really be a great support to her daughter in this situation.  

The Saturn/Admetos around the Meridian is telling us she would like to be and do more but that she feels something is blocking.  The Uranus Pluto here tells us that there’s some fear around bringing her individuality to the fore, which if she expresses from this place of inner vision and deeper recesses that she’ll be controlled in some way, and so with this kind of fear she can get into power struggles with others. The Uranus/Pluto can make her changeable, moody and irritable and I’m certain Kate and William will experience this from time to time.

And so the planet Admetos in her chart gives us profound insight.  Admetos will tell us where the blocked energy lies as well as the potential to bring her energy into the depth.  Here we find the Moon/Ascendant midpoint structure which is the feminine influence in the early environment and more likely in Charlottes chart, the feminine influence “ancestrally” as we also have a strong twelfth house influence.  The Mars/Saturn midpoint, the Uranus/Kronos midpoint, and the Admetos all around this axis indicates an historic matriarchal line that involved too much control and intrusion into personal space and feelings as well as a too early experience of emotional independence.  Charlotte probably experiences some of these unconscious past memories as irritability, nebulous fears and an inability to achieve certain things, so she’ll need to take a look at these skeletons in her ancestral closet, to explore her unconscious, her Wonderland.  She’ll need to look around, take notes and integrate what she’s found in order to know what makes her tick. 

But remember all is not wonderful in Wonderland, her innate openness to “undercurrents in the atmosphere” can be glorious as well as frightening, particularly to a harmony and security seeking girl like Charlotte with her Libra Moon and a Cancer Ascendant.  And she may overcompensate for this by being super rational, as indicated by her Mercury-Saturn opposition on the Meridian.  But Wonderland will always press on within Charlotte, to be a bridge between the unconscious and the conscious, to find an undefinable and immeasurable kind of beauty that heals and fulfills, and to find the avenue that affirms her personal power and identity.    

Charlotte reminds me a bit of the soldier Queen, elected to carry and heal old wounds within the matriarchal line and thus the monarchy.  She has the potential to be a pivotal figure not only overturning the status quo, but by bringing her individuality to the fore.   Her penetrating insight, her creativity and her inner vision.

Taylor Swift....and the relationship thingy.

Taylor Swift...And the relationship thingy.

We’re going to take a look at the chart of Taylor Swift, not so much from the success that she has created in the creative realm, but in her relationship area.  Those very same structures in her chart work so well in career can be a bit messy in the area of personal relationship. 

When we go to the Meridian and immediately we see that Saturn/Neptune midpoint as well as the Saturn/Moon midpoint structures sitting on the side.  Now remember the Meridian in Uranian astrology not only is the represents the soul, the point of individuality, but it’s also career.  So when Neptune andSaturn and come together here we have the use of the non-concrete, the visceral, immense sensitivity, compassion and imagination of the Neptune, and the concrete reality, practicality and discipline of the Saturn.  This is what gives Taylor the power to create in tangible form the outpourings of her imagination.  Saturn/Neptune people, if the structure is there artistically, often become self-appointed messiahs in a sense for the collective.  She may speak of emotions that are unique to her but really are common to the masses.

So what’s the double edged sword in this picture?...that the Moon is involved.   The Moon is quite afflicted in Taylors chart and even though she has got it to work well in career, her chart indicates the moon enters troubled waters in the personal area.

Dialing in on the moon we immediately run into Neptune, so anything that points to the moon will involve Neptunian energy.  Neptune and the moon have a lot in common, they’re sensitive, imaginative, empathic, and compassionate, they’ve got a refined sense of feeling and are concerned with feeling connected.  These people long for connection, for reassurance that makes them very self-sacrificing, becoming what others need them to become.   Moon/Neptune understands others need for unconditional love and they need this kind of love in return. They often look to others to redeem or be redeemed on order to avoid having to face all of the harshness in the concrete world.   

So the sensitivity and merging of the water combined with the self-expressive creative fire in her chart, that Sun in Saggitarius, the Leo Ascendant and particularly the intensely desirous Scorpio Mars, the planet of determination, will power, active energy, and you’ve got a Fire/Water situation, someone who looks at people in terms of their potential and tries to fix them. Fire/Water works beautifully in the career area where we can intuit potential and make things happen.  The fire seeks expression but the water seeks the paradise realm of connection which is why she falls hard, fast and because there is so much expectation she ends up disillusioned, lonely and disappointed.  She’s not really seeing these men for who they are but rather projecting her own needs and longings onto them.   

In addition around the Moon area, we find a Jupiter/Saturn midpoint indicating there are problems around the area of faith, swings in temperament between unbounded optimism and deep pessimism.  There is a lack of trust that what she is looking for is really there for her, or rather, and more poignantly, on some level she really doesn’t believe it is there for her and so what we think we energetically recreate.  

So it’s really not the famous issue which she so often speaks of, but rather the issue is her feelings of lack of effectiveness and lack of confidence in this area.

Now let’s factor in that Saturnian energy with that Moon.  Whatever Saturn touches it craves but has a hard time reaching.  So here, the nurturance, deep emotional bonds, real feelings of security is amiss.  There’s a “trapped child” here who learned emotional self-sufficiency early. The kind of love that says I will love, protect and nurture you just because you breathe was in short supply, although her strong Neptunian energy around her moon probably kept her weaving fantasy and idealization around how it actually was, and kept her pining away in search of that emotional setup.  So the child develops extraordinary ways of getting their needs met by being ultra-responsible, dutiful and controlled.  Responding to others needs and never letting anyone down.  Moon/Saturn is usually quite vulnerable and scared of being hurt so they will always conform to elicit approval, conforming was the currency for love.  Moon/Saturn people often end up in a mothering position, like a Mother Hen, even playing mother to their own.  All of these combinations lend themselves to this caretaking or fix/change pattern in the personal area, trying to fill her own needs and longings for emotional security.

Her chart indicates in several places the need for major transformation in this area, so Sun/Moon - one of the most important midpoint structures for relationship in Uranian astrolology.  And bingo, not only do we find that whole structure with the Moon-Neptune/Saturn midpoint with the Meridian on the side, dialing us back into that adaptive fix-change/caretaking problem, but we find the planet Pluto here as well.  Pluto, the planet of death, rebirth and transformation is telling us that there needs to be profound transformation in this area of personal relationship , that old patterns from the past that no longer serve need to die.  And Hades is here on the side as well, the planet of death, decay, the underworld as well as early emotional primal wounding’s in the life.  The Hades here can mean a few things, on one hand is another confirmation of difficulty in the relationship area and someone who is terrified of the vulnerability here,

So let’s dial back to that Meridian once more and include our relationship mp Sun/Moon,  and wahlla the Sun-Moon/Hades witha 3-point picture with Pluto hooked right into the Meridian, confirming the issues around relationship but also that this is a soul issue something to be worked on this lifetime.  The fact that there is Plutonian energy around it means that the possibilities for transformation are there, but not before she has some real transformative experiences concerning relationship.  It will be a spiral and hopefully an upward one.
