Prince Andrew, Duke of York (February 19, 1960)
It’s a given fact: royalty have always thought they were above the law, especially when one is the favourite son of a reigning monarch. And who would the jury of his peers be, more Peers of the Realm? Even the jurisdiction issue is unsettled: the crimes were committed outside of the United Kingdom. How is anyone going to enforce legal judgements on Prince Andrew? What a mess…
Now, before I start, let me remind you, the reader, that a Venus/Mars conjunction in the birth chart is an indication of a love/hate relationship with the opposite sex. And the placement of this conjunction in Andrew’s birth chart says that this came into play when he was between 17 and 18 years of age. In other words, his first love was complicated. That’s probably why the British tabloid press nicknamed him “Randy Andy”. You can draw your own conclusions about his marriage to Sarah Ferguson.

Work very hard to develop an objective awareness of what you are doing and where you are going. You will need this understanding to guide your emotions, which might otherwise lead you astray and make it difficult for you to focus on your goals. Even though you won’t have to choose a career or a purpose in life for many years, you can learn now to have good perception, which will make it easier to choose later on. Learn to see others’ points of view, even if you cannot accept them. Learn to make logical decisions, and do not let passing moods color your attitudes about yourself and your life too much.

You mind moves quickly from topic to topic, often without pausing long enough for you to understand what you have learned. And if there is a lot of excitement or activity around you, your mind may race so fast to keep up with it all that you work yourself into a state of nervous frenzy. Under these circumstances it is almost impossible for you to concentrate or do any useful mental work.
(This implies that, yes, he does ‘sweat’.)
I rest my case, m’lord.
This post was prompted by an MSM headline that Susan read on New Year’s Day that suggested Andrew would be stripped of his royal titles. Then the headline disappeared, only to be confirmed yesterday by a statement from Buckingham Palace. Obviously he will now face this prosecution as a private individual.
