Meghan Markle was born as Rachel Meghan Markle on Tuesday 4th August 1981 at 4:46am in Canoga Park, California, USA. Interestingly, she was born on the 81st birthday of Prince Harry's great grandmother, and just six days after his parents' wedding.
As a Sun sign Leo, Meghan will be at ease associating with royalty as she is confident and dignified in social situations. She has a desire to prove her strengths and abilites. The Sun is situated in sector one of her natal chart bringing natural qualities of leadership and tremendous enthusiasm. She will be very eager to leave her mark on history. The Sun in conjunction with Mercury indicates that she is an independent thinker who forms her own opinions. The Sun in a trine aspect to the Midheaven shows that Meghan has a positive outlook on life, with a powerful urge to be recognised. This planetary influence tends to bring great success.
With her natal Moon in Libra, Meghan will have a powerful need to be in a partnership. Without someone to share her life with, she will feel incomplete - but safe and secure when in a strong relationship. Charming and attractive, she will win hearts with her gentle and refined ways. Harmony, peace, and sharing is very important to her. However, this Moon position can bring a tendency to see flaws in relationships, and although diplomatic with everyone else, winning an argument with those closest to her will be paramount.
The natal Moon in sector three shows that Meghan is very responsive, communicative, and curious. She may have a talent for imitating others and learning languages. She will often make decisions for emotional or personal reasons, and her feelings could influence her thoughts. Comfortable talking about personal issues and sharing confidences, she will enable others to express their own innermost thoughts. Meghan has good psychological insight.
Meghan's natal Moon is part of a planetary configuration called a Stellium. This occurs when three or more planets are in conjunction with each other. The Moon is in conjunction with Jupiter and Saturn, bringing generosity and a warm heart. Sometimes quite opinionated, she has a strong sense of right and wrong, and feeling very passionate about justice and equality, she is keen to help others. She has an innate understanding of human nature and the world around her, and she would make an excellent teacher. This planetary influence indicates a strong attachment to the past, to history, and to cultures of the world.
Meghan is very sensitive despite her cool exterior. Some hardship or adversity will not be a problem for her, as she will feel invigorated when she's required to overcome challenges, and she is more able than most to keep calm when under pressure. Hardworking and reliable, Meghan could become a loyal and dutiful addition to the monarchy.
With her Ascendant in the sign of Cancer, Meghan will have very strong instincts. She will come across as a caring person and very approachable. With the sign of Capricorn on the Descendant, she will be looking for structure and security in her partner and their relationship. Strength, as well as financial and emotional stability in a partner will be very important to her, and she will be more than willing to give up her personal freedom in order to get it.
Meghan's natal Mercury in Leo indicates strong-minded opinions which may be expressed with great authority. She is probably very good at communicating with children and young people. With Mercury in a sextile aspect to Jupiter, she has a thirst for knowledge and information. She will have many constructive and creative ideas.
Natal Venus in the sign of Virgo shows that Meghan's standards may be too high in relationships. Her most compatible and successful partnerships will evolve through a practical approach to love based on shared work and mental compatibility. Situated in sector two of her chart, Venus may bring a tendency for indulgent and expensive habits, as well as powerful emotions which could lead to possessiveness.
With her natal Mars in Cancer, Meghan's actions may be motivated by deeply felt emotions. Repressed anger could be a problem for her and when confrontations arise she might experience a lack of self-control. Mars in sector 12 of her chart could bring a feeling of vulnerability, perhaps with self-destructive thoughts. People with Mars situated in this area of the chart often experience regular nightmares.
Meghan's natal Mars is in a square aspect to her Moon, Jupiter, Saturn stellium, as well as her Midheaven. Open, direct, strong-willed, and ambitious, she has tremendous courage and a fighting spirit. She is good at making decisions, but sometimes her actions may be too hasty. Meghan has powerful determination and she loves a challenge, but might be prone to conflicts and disputes.
Natal Uranus is in sector five of the chart and in a trine aspect to Meghan's Ascendant. This shows that she thrives on changing circumstances and loves anything out of the ordinary. She has a heightened need to express her individuality and tends to look for constant excitement. Championing radical causes is something she is - or will become - keen on doing. She has an urge to be seen as different or unconventional. She could have a problem with authority figures and will stubbornly refuse to take advice.
