Prince William: Astrological Chart [Inner Solar System]  



Definition: [Prince William Horoscope] Below you can see a standard astrological chart for William's birth and an outer solar system chart for the exact moment of William's birth.


Prince William's Standard Horoscope Chart. This geocentric chart uses the tropical zodiac and the Placidus house system.  As such it is the standard form of chart in Western astrology. It gives William as a Sun and Moon in Cancer, with Mercury in Gemini and Venus in Taurus. Sagittarius is the Rising Sign.


Prince William's Inner Solar System Chart at the time of his birth. [The Solar System viewed from above the Celestial North Pole. The Vernal Equinox is at the 12 o'clock position.] The rings on the chart are the paths of the planets around the Sun. The 'pie segments' of the chart show which constellation a planet is seen against as seen from Earth. The two inner planets, Mercury and Venus, are seen from Earth against the constellation Taurus. The Sun is on the cusp between Taurus and Gemini. The Moon is seen against the constellation of Gemini. Click on the chart above to see the Outer Solar System Chart. [Note: the orbits have been scaled slightly to separate out the planets. The positions of the planets in their orbits are accurate, as are their signs.]

Further Information: Why are the two charts so different? They show quite different planetary transits: for example 'Mercury is in Gemini', the Twins, in the astrological chart, but Mercury is seen against Taurus, the Bull, in the real solar system chart.

In answer if you look carefully at the positions on the outer planets on both charts you will see that they are the same, relative to each other. For example on the standard chart they read Sun, Mercury, Venus going clockwise and they also do so on the solar system chart. The difference between the two charts is not the planetary positions but the Zodiac Wheel against which they are measured.

The standard Western chart uses the Tropical Zodiac. This is a description of the heavens which assumes all the zodiac signs are of equal length and that their positions roughly correspond to the positions of the constellations about two thousand years ago, when the roots of modern astrology were established. The solar system chart is an accurate depiction of reality. In the Real Solar Zodiac the constellations are not of equal length and, because of the Movement of the Ages, do not correspond to the same positions as seen from Earth, relative to the Vernal Equinox, as they did two millennia ago. This can be seen in the two charts. In the standard chart the Sun is on the cusp between Gemini and Cancer. In the solar system chart the real position of the Sun against the constellations puts it on the cusp between Taurus and Gemini, a whole constellation away.

The Moon is difficult to show on a real solar system chart as it lies so close to the Earth. This is why it is in a separate box on the chart. It can be seen against the stars of Gemini, not Cancer as shown in the standard chart. The accuracy of the solar system chart can easily be checked by looking at the Star Charts of the sky at the moment of William's birth. See the Visible Sky Chart for the Moon's position.
