Chinese astrological portrait of Prince George

The baby Prince George was born in the year of Water Snake, the month of Earth Sheep, the day of Earth Ox, and the hour of Water Monkey. This makes him extremely sensitive and down to earth. His birth star, 5 Earth, makes him practical, hard working and conscious of his ancestry. He likes to be in control, and he is willful and determined.
Outstanding features of his birth chart include a knife blade. The knife blade shows Prince George to be unbending, and inclined to be independent, even obstinate. He resents advice or the opinions of others, may be a risk taker and thrill seeker, and can squander the family wealth. The period in his life when knife blade comes out most strongly is between age 15 and 25 in which time he may become intolerant of those under him, yet most productive if he takes up a creative interest. He also appears to be precocious.
Prince George's chart has what is called Amiable Deity. This makes him friendly to others, but independent and disinclined to work with others.
Another interesting feature of his birth chart is that it shows that he doesn't get the support of his parents that he wants, and that his relationships with his siblings or close relatives will tend to be distant.
The element count in the chart shows 3 Fire, 6 Earth, 3 Metal, 4 Water, and 1 Wood. Wood is weakest and Earth is strongest. Earth is extremely strong and shows an eventual tendency to digestive problems and to worrying. Because of the weakness of Wood, Prince George's vital element is Water. For him it presages a love that will become vital to his sense of well-being. Water vital means that the healthiest orientation for the prince is for him to sleep with his head to the north, and for him to wear dark blue. Water also runs into Prince George's mid 80s measuring the probable length of his years.
The prince's chart has no yang Wood. This means that while he thinks a lot, and is very capable of worrying a lot, he has trouble making up his mind.
The chart has two Tien Yi, or stars of Sky Medicine. Tien Yi is the luckiest of stars. She is a deity whom all demons fear. She resolves most predicaments and will give the prince assistance and favor wherever he goes.
The chart also has a Taiji Nobleman Star. The prince glows with vitality and is capable of vigorously carrying things through. He is wealthy and genuinely noble of character, and will probably cultivate an interest in divination, astrology, and religion.

The summer of 2013 in astrology

Summer solstice came on June 21 at 6:05 AM GMD. The Moon was at 27 degrees Scorpio, essentially void of course, but forming a wide square to Neptune at 5 degrees Pisces, and quincunx the Sun at 00 degrees Cancer saying that the summer quarter brings more confusion to the world's affairs that require adjustment.

The majority of planets at the solstice are in cardinal water, and we find a grand trine in water between the Sun, Saturn, and Neptune giving the world a feeling of tremendous emotional expansiveness. It also brings lots of water, as in flooding and rain. Cardinal water shows much popular activity, such as uprisings and protests which are to be expected across the world through the summer, and especially toward the later part of the season.

The solstice came two days before the full moon on June 23, showing the emotional current at the solstice running high. And, because it is the solstice about which we are talking whose affects last through the entire summer quarter, this emotional current will run high through the entire summer up into the Fall equinox in September. Flooding will also occur in storms that are bound to come toward that time. On the personal level the great activity of water this summer will make relationships a lot more active. Those that are false will be dissolved, and those that are true will become deeper and more pleasurable.

There are three new moons in the summer quarter, the first on July 8, the second on August 6, and the third on September 5. The new moons of August 6 and September 5 interact with the summer solstice chart significantly. The new moon of August 6 occurs exactly square the summer solstice north lunar node at 14 degrees Scorpio. This shows that in August economic challenges will increase in the world. The new moon of September 5 occurs square the summer solstice Mars; and Jupiter at that time will be exactly trine the summer solstice north node, showing increasing economic tension and popular outrage across the world.

Significant transits this summer include Jupiter entering Cancer, the sign of his exaltation, on June 26, allowing for even greater expansion of the emotional current in the world. Jupiter in Cancer can bring tremendous good fortune for those in tune with his vibrations, especially those who have natal Jupiter in a water sign (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces). When Jupiter is in opposition with Pluto in Capricorn and square Uranus in Aries in August there will be some violent repercussions in the world.

Saturn will turn direct at 4 degrees Scorpio at the new moon on July 8. This may very well time the death of a world figure, perhaps Mandela. And it will bring a turning point in the market. Saturn turns direct trine Jupiter at the new moon, bringing more upbeat developments in the market in July.
