you’re in line to be King of England, it certainly doesn’t
hurt to have Leo, the royal sign, as your Ascendant. His
Sun-sign inclines to secrecy and the majority
of planets (eight to be exact) are on the bottom half of
the chart. This is someone who wants to keep his private life private.
But he is torn in two directions. Even if he weren’t the
Prince of Wales, that Moon in his 10th house puts him in the
public eye. And a Leo Ascendant does love attention, adulation
and admiration. His 7th
house (marriage) has Aquarius on the cusp (beginning) indicating
an independent and unconventional marriage partner, someone who
would not be likely to do what is “expected” of her.
Charles has six planets in angular houses (houses 1, 4,
7, and 10) and four in succedent houses (2, 5, 8, and 11, the
result houses). There are no planets in the cadent houses (3, 6,
9, and 12, the background houses). People with no cadent planets
either have to start from scratch, over and over, or they are
totally indifferent to their “background” and just take it
for granted. A Prince doesn’t have to start anything from
scratch. He’s a Prince. All that is taken care of for him. This leaves him
free to go with his main concern, which is shown by that
majority of planets in angular houses. He wants to stay in the
here and now, whatever happens to catch his fancy at the moment.
