What’s a Little Mercury Retrograde Between Friends?

Charles III Coronation (May 6, 2023)

My friend David Lowe asked if I had drawn up the chart for Charles III’s coronation. At the time, I said, no and promised to do it closer to the event. Then I went and drew it up anyway, just because I was curious, too. To be honest, there wasn’t anything there to specifically worry about, as far as I could see.

Because of a recent MSM post about a UK astrologer’s ‘concerns’ I thought I would revisit the chart and look for myself. The problems that she saw was that the announcement happened during a Mercury Retrograde and the event would take place during a Mercury Retrograde. Furthermore, she predicted trouble because the event will happen during a full Moon. Really? These aspects happen all the time and we learn to live through them with very little interruption to ‘normal’ life. But could this one event be different?

Venus Inconjunct Pluto

With this aspect you must learn a great deal about the kinds of friends you want and the kinds of experiences you will have through other people. Even while you are still young, you may meet persons who are quite difficult to get along with, but who seem to be impossible to get away from, even when you want to. You may be fascinated by such persons, or circumstances may force you to stay with them. These people do have a definite role to play in your life, but it may not always be a pleasant one. They will teach you something about life or about yourself.

This aspect may also mean that you are very possessive and demanding of your loved ones. You may not want to accept the fact that your friends can love other people besides yourself. Let your friends be themselves when they are with you, and try not to be too demanding of their time. Love for friends and relatives should be given freely, not used as a way to control them. If you do that, you will lose their love.

Saturn Inconjunct Ascendant

With this aspect you probably have a rather serious attitude toward life and other people. It may be quite difficult for you to simply go out and have a good time. You want to be serious and to spend all your time performing significant tasks. This attitude may have developed because you were discouraged from enjoying yourself when you were younger. You may have been made to feel that only work is important, that play serves no useful purpose.

You may find it rather difficult to express yourself to other people. This is an expression of your lack of self-confidence, which will change if you get positive emotional support from the people around you.

(Is Prince Philip in the background somehow?)

This is Charles’ Destiny

Most people misunderstand how astrology works. It’s a cyclical image presented in the birth chart as a ‘slice of time’. When aspects meet in two charts, something significant is at work. I believe this date was chosen because it links Charles’ natal North and South Nodes with the ‘event’ ones (almost perfectly).

The other “surprise” is how the ‘event’ Ascendant is just about 1° from his natal Ascendant. Furthermore, the ‘event’ Moon is conjunct his natal Sun, and his natal Moon is halfway between the ‘event’ North Node and Jupiter. Even Charles’ Uranus is conjunct the ‘event’ Venus, which in turn is opposite his natal Jupiter (the crown). None of this should be a surprise, though. The Royals have always used astrologers to guide their ceremonial steps: see John Dee and Elizabeth I.

So, David, this event will be alright on the day, despite what the doom-and-gloomers say. Bless.

    Many thanks for this Christopher. It makes for intriguing reading. I believe you’re on the right track calling into question his father’s involvement in King Charles’ formative years. The Duke of Edinburgh appeared to be a very strict (militarily influenced) and sometimes ‘distant’ dad. I have first hand experience of the lasting damage that can do! There are also questions, I believe, over the King’s late mother’s parenting during his childhood?

    On a broadly similar note, today we’ve witnessed the departure of PM Liz Truss, and the ‘coronation’ of Rishi Sunak as British Prime Minister, without a single public vote being cast. Apparently, while all this was going-on this morning, the UK was in the track of a partial solar eclipse until around noon. What, if any, are the astrological implications of this?

      A solar eclipse, as most people know and understand, happens when the Moon and the Sun align in the sky. It is significant as this also is known as a new Moon which means a new beginning. The prospects for Rishi Sunak are good as the new Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. But, as always, time will tell. *fingers crossed*
