I’m not a fan of trial by media and you would hope that everyone would treat each other with respect and come from a place of heart, but Prince Harry certainly has some powerful transits happening today with the transiting Moon – just prior to the eclipse – at 11′ directly conjunct his Descendent at 11’21 opposing his Ascendant. The powerful stellium of planets currently in Capricorn is almost all in his 1st mansion of self-identity, self-acceptance and personal identity. All that tension would be played out via the Moon – feelings and emotions, habitual patterns – in Cancer, ideally a place of nurture, sensitivity and belonging, but under stress a key area of pain, anger and avoidance relating to home and family. His Natal Moon conjunct Ceres and his IC is also very important, referencing his mother, in direct opposition with Saturn in Scorpio conjunct the MC, suggesting dynamic tension between parents.
It would be extremely difficult to so publicly lose a mother that he cherished and that would make any form of ending/transition more difficult. Although the media has focused on the current ending’s similarity with Edward and Mrs Simpson, his chart and current transits also reference the loss of his mother and the unconscious effect this would be having on his life.
The three Cancerian First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand assist with over-reacting to emotional or family situations; stress, strain and anxiety related to abandonment, childhood and the home environment.
No 10 Starry Hisbiscus – Tenderness
No 11 Chatham Island – Nurturing
No 12 Native Harebell – Tenacity
With anyone undergoing such pivotal changes in their 1st mansion of self-awareness and self-projection, you would also include flower essences to balance and bring into potential their Sun, Moon, Ascendant and North Node placements:
Sun : 22’57 Virgo – No 18 Purple Koromiko – Simplicity, transforming guilt and self-blame.
Moon: 21’20 Taurus – No 6 New Zealand Jasmine – Perseverance, transforming an exaggerated sense of duty, shouldering the burden of others.
Ascendant: 11’21 Capricorn – No 29 Mairehau – Achievement, transforming feelings of inadequacy, feeling trapped in one’s vocation.
North Node: 29’37 Taurus – No 6 New Zealand Jasmine – Perseverence, doubly emphasising the need to transform issues relating to self-worth and exhaustion into the positive counterparts of loyalty, determination and experiencing true happiness from within.
