Meghan Markle is the girl of the day. Let’s see what gems we can mine from the chart. No ones secrets are safe when one understands Astrology. Astrology is a unique and wonderful science. One has to really want to understand Astrology because it does not reveal itself easily. However, to those of us who love Astrology, the painstaking learning process is well worth it! Onto Meghan Markle.
Meghan Markle–What Makes Her Tick?
1. Third House Stellium
One’s stellium defines one, to a large extent. It gives vital information about one’s drives, passions and that to which one is attracted. For the third house stellium, it is all about telling us what she thinks——sharing her voice. I saw some earlier footage of Meghan on U Tube. She wrote to a company who had an add for dish soap, I think. Meghan said that the ad should not indicate that women were the sole sex for dish washing. The company actually changed their ad to include people, not just women. She was very young at the time. It is interesting that she was expressing her voice at an early age. However, this would be classic for a 3rd House stellium. You wonder how difficult it will be for her in the royal family, in which one must blend in in order to survive, literally. However, to sun it up, Meghan will express herself.
2. Planets Making Up the 3rd House Stellium—The Moon, Saturn and Jupiter
Meghan has a close stellium of Jupiter, the Moon and Saturn in the 3rd house. When we have a stellium with very different planets, such as this, one must carefully dissect the stellium. The planets here represent very different forces in the personality and energy body of Meghan. The Moon is her deepest heart and her deepest and most intimate emotions. Saturn is her internal monitor of whether or not she is measuring up. Jupiter is grace, ease, good fortune and good luck.
Saturn and Jupiter are opposing forces, so this makes the stellium conflicted, such as if one wore a hot pick blouse and bright orange shoes. I would sum this up by saying that Jupiter will propel her to express her voice/her thoughts. Jupiter will give her good fortune for doing this. However, Saturn will make for self doubt. Did she say too much? Did she act too brash? Was she too aggressive? Was she too shy?
These thoughts, likely, follow her attempts to speak her truth. However, her heart will not let her stop because her Moon will propel her to share her heart, even if it kills her. That is how I interpret this stellium in the 3rd. Of course, other aspects to these planets will modify the picture, but first we must break down the chart to it’s simplest components.
3. Cancer Mars in the 12th House Squaring Her Stellium
Fortunately for Meghan, the Mars is not a very close square. If it were, there would be tremendous conflict in her self expression. However, it is close enough to matter and to be a factor. I will explain. Cancer Mars in the 12th House is a suppressed and even voiceless Mars. It is very hard for Meghan to be assertive. I can tell you this from her chart. Her public actions do not reveal who she really is. Her chart does! This goes for everyone.
For Meghan, we can take all that I said in Number 2 on this list and add great hardship in expressing herself. I think it takes everything in her to stand up. This is, likely, one of her greatest conflicts. She MUST express herself in order to be true to her heart. However, it is not without a lot of doubt and self criticism. It is not easy for her to put “herself out there”. Think of the struggle of someone who is not a natural musician or singer. That person must overcome many odds in order to do his craft.The same goes for Meghan in expressing herself.
4. One planet in earth–a Singelton.
The planet is Venus and the sign is Virgo. I find that Singletons seem to try to prove that they are adept at their Singleton planet. She may feel that she has to prove she is loving. She may have to prove she has excellent taste. Venus is the planet of both love and taste, which includes how one dresses, speaks etc
5. One Personal Planet in Water and a Water Ascendant
Meghan may appear to be more emotional than she really is. She may be surprised that people VIEW her as very emotional. People see one’s Ascendant, but it is not really a deep part of the native. It is more of an external manifestation of the person. I am a Libra Ascendant. I love beautiful flowers and beautiful artwork in my house.I am very diplomatic and can work conflict out very well and rather easily. However, this does not really tell you about my deep nature and personality. My deep nature is my Cancer Moon–very loyal and deeply emotional. My deep nature is my Gemini Sun, kind of a flake. Well, one has to put together the whole chart to find the whole person, but my point in writing this is that the Ascendant does not go deep.
