The Royal Family Horoscope in 2016

Eclipses - when they strike the horoscopes of several members of the Royal Family at once - always show milestones for Her Majesty the Queen.

Eclipses – when they strike the horoscopes of several members of the Royal Family at once – always show milestones for Her Majesty the Queen. The Sun is always one half of an eclipse, and the Sun is ruled by Leo the lion, the traditional emblem of Queens and Kings. In its own right, the Sun is also a symbol of royalty in Europe – as you will see, any time you wish to visit Versailles.

Back on April 10th 2013 you read a prediction about a crossroads for the Royal Family:  “We have a partial lunar eclipse coming up on Thursday 25th April which falls at 5 Scorpio 46 and 5 Taurus 46. This triggers the astrological charts of Prince Charles, Her Majesty the Queen and Prince Phillip.”

The Succession to the Crown Act 2013 was given Royal Assent on exactly this day, 25th April 2013. It was an Act to make succession to the Crown not depend on gender – and  to make provision about Royal Marriages. It means a very different future for Prince George.


Why else did that April eclipse matter? Her Majesty Queen Beatrix of the Kingdom of the Netherlands abdicated on 30th April 2013  to make way for her eldest son, Prince Willem-Alexander and his wife Princess Máxima. 


We have a crucial eclipse for the British Royal Family on Thursday 18th August 2016. The Full Moon at 9.26am falls with the Sun at 25 Leo and Moon at 25 Aquarius. Shortly after this at 9.42am we have a penumbral lunar eclipse, with the Sun at 26 Leo and Moon at 26 Aquarius. What does an eclipse do? It covers things up. For the most important reasons, Her Majesty the Queen, Prince Charles, Camilla, Prince George (small though he is), Prince Phillip and Prince William will all be drawn into a cover-up job.

Eclipses tend to hide the truth from a country – only to be revealed later. We had one just before President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. It was a very famous eclipse, perhaps the most watched and widely reported in U.S. history. It also took place when Lee Harvey Oswald quit one job, to go to another – in Texas.


If you think about what an eclipse actually does – wholly or partly blotting out the light – you can see why nothing is ever clear or normal when one occurs. Eclipses are rare. They spell big events, if they hit your personal chart.

This eclipse falls at 26 Leo, the Royal sign. It follows a Full Moon just before, at 25 Leo. Which members of the Royal Family, past and present, have horoscope factors at 25 and 26?

Prince Charles – Vesta 25 Libra
Her Majesty the Queen – Midheaven 25 Scorpio, Immum Coeli 25 Taurus, Juno 26 Aquarius, Diana 25 Gemini, Minerva 26 Capricorn
Princess Diana – Ops 25 Libra, Moon 25 Aquarius, Juno 26 Pisces
Prince George – Aesculapius 26 Taurus
Camilla – Salacia 25 Sagittarius
Prince Phillip – North Node 25 Libra, South Node 25 Aries
Prince William – Neptune 25 Sagittarius, Chiron 25 Taurus, Venus 25 Taurus


The central figure in this eclipse is Her Majesty the Queen. The last eclipse we saw to directly affect the Royal Family involved the abdication of Queen Beatrix – and a change to the line of succession in London. This is about handing over the reins in what Queen Elizabeth is reputed to call ‘The Firm’ either when she decides to give up her responsibilities, or she passes on.

It is interesting that Princess Diana’s horoscope is triggered by this August 2016 eclipse – of course, she would have been Queen, had she survived. Note, too, the importance of the asteroid Diana in the Queen’s own horoscope. There is a big story here, but it takes place in a closed book which may never be opened. Another way to view it, might be a colouring-in book which is never filled in. Will the public ever be filled in about discussions and decisions taking place in August? (Near the time of the birthdays of The Queen Mother and Princess Anne)?


Even though an eclipse is always a c0ver-up job, when outer planets hit the same degree, we always have a major (public) story, too. The Sun and Moon create their strange dance together on 18th August at 25 and 26 degrees of Leo. What is really unusual about August is Jupiter also reaching 25 and 26 degrees of Virgo, one sign along. This happens on August 17th to 26th.

In 2017, the pattern is repeated when Saturn reaches 25 and 26 Sagittarius, followed by Uranus at 25 and 26 Aries. This occurs February 6th to March 6th 2017 (Saturn, the planet of difficult, heavy reality checks) and from April 24th to June 1st (Uranus, the planet of radical change and new beginnings).

This period also coincides with the Queen’s personal and also official birthdays. I really love this portrait of Prince George, because it shows so much determination on a very young face. He will need that determined approach to deal with what looks like a massive, momentous change in his own destiny.


You can see the personal horoscopes (natal charts) below. They show those clear, striking connections at 25 and 26 degrees by so many members of the core Royal Family. The one sign we see repeated in all the charts is Taurus.

Taurus the Bull is associated with bull markets and the famous bronze bull sculpture on Wall Street. We also link Taurus to gold bullion. This story, covered up in August – but wide open by 2017 – is about the Royal inheritance. The palaces. The tax position. The priceless treasures. And above all – the money.

All families have a right to privacy and the Royal Family must crave it more than any other. Nevertheless, this is one confidential or even classified episode, that will ultimately affect a very public story. I like astrology because it always tells us the questions we should be asking. With this pile-up in Taurus in the Royal charts, we should be asking questions about preserving British heritage and history – but also the rather loaded question of allowances and Her Majesty the Queen’s financial position and legacy.


Who is Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second? The horoscope, below, gives us a mixture of the public monarch and the real person.

THE QUEEN 600x330 - The Royal Family Horoscope in 2016

Exact patterns show us the most important stories in anybody’s life and times (yours too). When the numbers or degrees line up (allow one degree’s difference, at most) something out of the ordinary is occurring. These perfect, precise patterns  show the sacred geometry.

In Queen Elizabeth’s horoscope, we find The MC (Midheaven) at 25 Scorpio and the IC (Immum Coeli) at 25 Taurus. These two are the money signs. They describe property, finances, possessions and also charity. Saturn, the planet of burdens, learning experiences and tremendous responsibility is very close by at 24 Scorpio.

Minerva, the asteroid which shows female wisdom, is in Capricorn, the sign of ambition, at 26 degrees. Juno is at 26 Aquarius, the sign which rules groups of all kinds – from organisations like the Red Cross to the army. The asteroid Diana is at 25 Gemini, the sign of the writer. Does Her Majesty secretly keep a diary, as Queen Victoria once did?

This is an incredible chart for someone whose head is on the currency of so many countries. That Scorpio-Taurus IC and MC pins the whole pattern. The IC shows your family, your roots, your country, and where you come from – it shows every branch on the family tree which matters. The MC shows your career.

The surprising, interesting thing about this horoscope is the huge emotional and personal investment Queen Elizabeth has in her charities and groups. She basically ‘marries’ them. Juno rules commitment. In this sense she is not hugely different to Princess Diana, who also had a strong Aquarius signature in her chart and was drawn to so many good causes.

If it is true that ‘heavy lies the head that wears the crown’ then for our Queen, it has always been the money, the palaces, the objets d’art and – particularly – the question of tax and inheritance – which has burdened her. So says the horoscope, anyway. The most public illustration of this was the tussle over repair costs after the fire at Windsor.


Three outer planets all moving over that crucial 24, 25, 26 degree pattern suggest events moving quickly, perhaps over a few weeks, which permanently alter the way Her Majesty sees herself, as well as her family – and her responsibility for managing British heritage, which in true Taurean fashion is priceless. It can’t be bought or sold, or even cost-estimated. Some things go beyond that.

It all begins on that August 2016 eclipse, though, as history will record. Whenever we strike a question mark or a row of dots in a public story, there is usually an eclipse lurking behind it. This particular Sun-Moon pattern affects not only our Queen, but also key members of her family too.

Your Aquarius Side and Friendships to 2023

If you have a stellium in Aquarius (more than three factors in that zodiac sign) then your Eleventh House of friendships and groups is unusually packed. What happens to those friendships when Saturn, Jupiter and then Pluto all pass through Aquarius? Have friends been lost, or has the friendship changed? That’s typical of this long cycle.

Ghislaine, the Royals, Trump and Leo Eclipses

Astrology forecasts made before an historic chain of eclipses chimed with predictions of drama for the Royal Family, Bill Clinton, Donald Trump – and a strange twist of fate involving Lolita. Published so long ago that Ghislaine Maxwell and Jeffrey Epstein were still unknown to the public, they now suggest July-August 2021 is a time of reckoning. Meghan, Harry, Kate and William have also been drawn into the astrological timeline. How do the Leo eclipses pan out in 2021 and 2022?

  1. Dear Jessica,

    Will other taurus sign people be affected by this. Can you please tell me more about someone born on the 18th May 1964. This person is self employed and lately works has been very tough.

    Thank you for your answer.

    1. This is not about other Taurus people, but with that birthdate, this person was born with Uranus and Pluto in Virgo, the sign of work and Jupiter, the planet of luck, is now also in Virgo until September. Change, change, change is the key to this year. As Einstein viewed it, repetition of the same pattern leads to the same result. So why repeat?

  2. Hello Jessica,

    I share a birthday with the Queen 4/21..but of course not the same year, I was born in 1980. Needless to say, the past 7 years have been trying, and I’m putting that so very lightly. I divorced in 2009 and my life has not been the same since. I have been looking for love, only for it to be fleeting, sad, and lonely. Sometimes I feel like there is no hope for me to find love again, and to make my situation more dire, I have a huge case of baby fever.

    Do you see any hope in sight???

    Thank you.

    1. You’re a Sun Taurus person who has been through the toughest love cycle in 29 years. I am sure 2012-2015 was not your best time and it was not your fault. This year is your detox and clean-up. It’s your successful path through the dating hangover. Yes of course there is hope! Children will play a happy role in your life until September, one way or another. I am sure you do have baby fever, but try to open up to what comes. It may be a new godchild. It may be a teen project that draws you in. Looking further ahead when Jupiter goes into Scorpio in 2017 you enter your most promising cycle in 12 years for getting together with a person whose vast travel or educational background expands your mind, body and spirit and makes you feel as if you are finally with someone who can help you grow. Of course, you have to play your part and make this happen. Don’t sit on your hands until then, though. You have some experimenting to do this year.

  3. I love your blog.. very nice colors & theme.
    Did you make thhis ebsite yourself or did you hire someone to do it for you?
    Plz respond as I’m looking to create my own blog and ould like to
    know where u gott this from. kudos

  4. What about Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge? Is her chart triggered by this eclipse as well?

      1. Sorry Jessica, do you mean the Duchess is affected through being married to one heir and mother to another heir? I have not heard that term used when referring to astrological charts before.

        1. It’s just a figure of speech – the Fifth House in astrology is ruled by Leo, the sign of Kings and Queens who have heirs to the throne. People with big Leo/Fifth House focus in their chart tend to have ‘heirs’ literally or figuratively – so Leo Beatrix Potter’s ‘heirs’ are the children who inherit her Peter Rabbit books.

  5. Hi Jessica

    Firstly, and I’ll say it yet AGAIN, what a great resource your website is! Thanks. The stuff on the Firm, is fascinating. Also the stuff around doping. I’ve felt for a long time that the Olympics, or sport in general, has to either fully embrace the drug culture or be absolutely ruthless and, one strike, and you are out! So, yes we could see the Olympic Games name change to “Battle of the Steroid People” or something.

    So, two questions if you would be so kind:

    I have Sag Sun at 26 (conj Galactic Centre) and Sun sqr Mars 26 in Virgo to the degree.
    As this eclipse is in trine to my Sun. In the 0 degrees Aries chart that you use, Sun is in 9th, Mars is in 6th.
    Ops is at 24 of Leo in 5th house. Vertex at 22 Aquarius.
    Your observations would be welcome.

    Secondly, I cast an Oracle reading and got Chiron and the 12th house. Yes, i related to the maverickness of the centaur most DEFINITELY. Also, the perhaps “introversion” of the 12th. I work predominantly with dreams and psyche (Jungian framework) so this fits too
    Most definitely a loner and much more comfortable in own company than with others. (thats why i attend so few of the Astrology meetups!)
    Again, anything you may intuit or whatever.

    KIndest, John

    1. Thank you very much, John, I will pass that compliment onto my webmasters James and Justin. I am still bothered by the Olympics, as one always is, when the world is cheering and the public relations machine is whirring – but the astrology tells you, there has been a huge cover-up. Time will tell, as we are yet to go past the two ‘drug’ eclipses of September. I suspect there is far more to the saga of the US swimming team than we have been told. Okay – moving right along – you have the Sun at 26 Sagittarius in the Ninth House and Mars at 26 Virgo in the Sixth House, so now through October you gain through work, pure and simple. This may be paid work, unpaid work or study. It will involve travel, or travel in the mind. The conjunction from Jupiter and Mercury at 26 Virgo to Mars is exact but the pattern will unfold over time because Mercury is retrograde. Interesting about Chiron too. Dennis Elwell was the Chiron expert – I am fairly sure his original essay on Chiron is still online. In the Twelfth House, yes, you have a signature for Jungian thought.
