You might not be one of the lucky few who got invites to Harry and Meghan’s wedding, but that doesn’t mean you can’t partake in the activity of the people: speculation! Linda Joyce, an astrologer and life coach, breaks down what we can glean about Harry and Meghan’s compatibility based on their astrological signs.
1. Meghan was born for the spotlight.
Joyce explains that since she’s a Leo, Meghan is more than capable of being the center of attention. Leos love to shine and have an innate ability to handle attention and publicity — super important if you’re a famous actress about to marry into the royal family.
Joyce adds that Leo is also a royal sign: “They are very good at presenting their strengths to the world and hiding the rest. Perfect for a public life.”
Of course, being a Sun sign isn’t everything. Joyce also adds that Meghan has Cancer rising, which is notable since there is a preponderance of Cancer in the English Royal family: Princess Diana was a Cancer, Prince William is a Cancer (sun and moon in Cancer), and Kate Middleton has her moon in Cancer.
Meghan also has four out of 10 planets in Libra. Libras are naturals at presenting themselves perfectly to the world. Not only are they used to having their appearances emphasized, but they can also handle the demands and pressures of having to conform, says Joyce.
2. They needed to find themselves before they could find each other.
It really is all about perfect timing. Joyce says that a big part of Harry and Meghan’s happiness with each other is because they were both ready for a relationship when they met. Fighting to find her identity (which is what Leos are all about) made Meghan strong and confident. Since Virgo is the house of service, once Harry found his purpose, perhaps through advancing his mother’s charities and starting his own, he was able to truly grow up and become ready for a relationship.
3. Their sex life is probably amazing…
Joyce says that since Meghan’s Sun falls into Harry’s 8th house of sex and transformation, this means Meghan has and will continue to transform Harry’s life in many ways, and their sex life is supposedly “fabulous.”
4. …As is their communication.
Joyce says that because Meghan’s Venus (or planet of love) is in Virgo, it’s in conjunction with Harry’s Sun sign. And apparently that’s a very good thing! “That’s an immediate connection, a love connection, a feeling of being understood,” says Joyce.
5. It was probably love at first sight.
Meghan’s rising sign is Cancer and her house of relationships is ruled by Capricorn (Harry’s Ascendant). As Joyce puts it, this is the textbook definition of a perfect connection and they likely understood each other right away.
Joyce explains that if someone has a planet that falls on your ascendant sign, you have an instant connection. However, this doesn’t mean all people born on August 4th (Meghan’s birthday) should be with people born on September 15th (Harry’s birthday) — “In their case it’s the [entire] chart that made [their connection] happen, not just their Sun sign.” Joyce says.
6. Meghan and Harry will spend much of their marriage giving back.
Joyce explains that the rising sign of Meghan and Harry’s wedding day is one degree of Virgo (there’s 30 degrees in each sign), which indicates that their marriage will certainly be service-oriented. “This is a union of love and of service. They will impact the world and stir things up. There is no way they will stay in the box.” Joyce says. Considering both Meghan and Harry were very involved in charities even before meeting each other, this makes sense.
7. They’ll probably have kids soon.
Joyce suggests that the two will start a family very soon, perhaps by the end of 2019. And yes, their kids will be as dedicated to humanitarian efforts as their parents. “They will have strong, powerful children who will also strive to make a difference in the world.”
