Astrologist Kimberly Dewhirst breaks down Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's zodiac signs, how the couple are (and aren't!) compatible, and the astrological significance of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's May 19, 2018 wedding date.
Prince Harry's Astrological Background
Born: September 15, 1984 at 4.20 p.m. Paddington, London
With his sun and Mercury in practical Virgo, moon in stable Taurus, with a capable Capricorn rising sign, Harry is incredibly earthy. He was born when the moon was in the same position in the sky as his mother, Diana’s, Venus sign (just 3º apart), impressing an important connection with his roots along with strong ties to home. The position of Saturn in his horoscope suggests he feels the weight of his reputation in the world—and its considerable power.

His warm, excitable nature comes courtesy of spirited Jupiter and planets in Sagittarius—including Mars. These are ideal for his military career, however he’s quite the spontaneous type, and not always fully considerate of the impression he makes! Yet, with Venus in sociable, diplomatic, and charming Libra he gracefully makes up for his errors.
Meghan Markle's Astrological Background
Born: August 4, (same birth date as the Queen Mother), 1981 at 4.46 a.m. Canoga Park, California
With her sun, Mercury and her destiny driven north node shining brightly in Leo, the Royal Family is a suitable setting for Meghan, equivocal to her successful career on camera. The TV star was born with compassionate Cancer rising, coloring her immediate response to the world with a sensitive shyness and great empathy. This ascendant sign also reflects the character traits of Cancerian Princess Diana, Harry’s late mother.
Sweet Libra is a dominant constellation in Meghan’s personal horoscope, with her birth chart ruler (the moon) in the sign of the scales, and is firmly established in the home and nesting zone. Protective, loyal, with the potential to be wildly assertive, Mars is positioned in an understated yet discreet area of the chart, essential for keeping private matters well hidden. In contrast to Harry’s grounded personal placements, Venus is the only planet found in an earth sign: Virgo.

The protective, nurturing zodiac sign Cancer, is a significant hallmark, as it is Diana’s sun sign, William’s sun and moon sign, Catherine Duchess of Cambridge’s moon sign, and Camilla (the prince’s step mother), Duchess of Cornwall’s sun, moon and Mercury sign. It’s also Meghan’s rising sign, and thus making her fully in the spotlight—or moonlight.

Astrological Advice for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle
To succeed, the couple should enjoy the beautiful side of life, and retreat regularly in private (which they've done quite well so, with the announcement of a private family celebration after the baby is born). With the pair’s Venusian moon signs (Taurus and Libra), the couple will be at home in gorgeous surrounds, so they should set up house in one of the more comfortable castles or perhaps a country manor like Highgrove, which Diana adored.
What does your birth chart say about you?
With planets in service-oriented Virgo, the pair will be eager to take on dutiful roles. Both diplomatic, charming and at ease together in the spotlight thanks to their blend of Libra and Leo, Meghan can make the most of her Cancer rising by working for causes connected to children and mothers, while Harry has stepped up his responsibility thanks to Saturn crossing his ascendant at the end of last year.
