When the Stars Align – January to March 2019
Part one of a four-part quarterly series about 2019 and the most important astrology alignments, or fated dates, of the year ahead. How will your sign gain? What about your personal birth chart, if you are a Premium Member?
What does it mean when people say, ‘The stars are aligned’? What they mean is – luck, good fortune and fate. Something bigger than them is at work. And it is on their side. Of course, stars don’t actually align. And the planets are always aligned.
One thing is certain, though. What people mean, when they say ‘the stars were aligned’ is astrological. Not astronomical!
In this feature, I’ll look at what Prince Harry meant, when he said the stars were aligned for his meeting with Meghan Markle. Later, I’ll line up the dates for 2019 and see what your star sign suggests with your former, current or potential partners. Will destiny line up for you?
Is it your year to fall in love again, or just fall in love? Will someone else fall for you a second time, or a first time? I’ll need your personal birth chart to give you your chances. First, though, let’s look at what an alignment actually is.
What is an Alignment in Astrology?
The Oxford English Dictionary tells us the word ‘align’ is French in origin and is over 400 years old. It comes from aligner and à ligne.
It means ‘to lie in a straight line’ which is a conjunction. It also means to ‘come together in agreement’ which means that the heavenly bodies must get on with each other.
If we’re talking about ‘stars aligned’ meaning fortunate, fated and so on – we’d be looking for Jupiter the planet of solutions, opportunity, growth and luck – in a conjunction with at least one other factor and hopefully more.
Harry and Meghan – The Stars Were Aligned!
Prince Harry says he and US actress girlfriend Meghan Markle fell in love “so incredibly quickly” and it seemed proof that the “stars were aligned.”
He was speaking to the BBC after the couple announced their engagement and plans to marry in spring 2018.
The couple told the BBC’s Mishal Husain they met on a blind date and neither had known much about each other.
Prince Harry said “beautiful” Ms Markle “just tripped and fell into my life.”
He believed Ms. Markle and his late mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, would have been “thick as thieves… best friends.”
So, Did the Stars Align in July 2016?
Meghan Markle, now the Duchess of Sussex, told Sam Kashner from Vanity Fair that she and Prince Harry met in July 2016. No date has ever been confirmed, but it’s interesting to go back and look at 2016 alignments that month. We don’t find Jupiter (luck) in a straight line with anything else – there is no conjunction.
What we do find, though, is Mercury in Leo, the sign which rules Kings and Queens, in alignment with Venus, the planet of relationships. This took place on Sunday July 17th and Monday July 18th, 2016. That’s pretty impressive.
Mercury and Venus moved together at 5, 6 and 7 degrees of Leo as if they were dancing. Line-dancing. In alignment.
There was another alignment too, that month. It took place on Thursday July 7th and saw the Sun at 15 Cancer and Moon at 15 Cancer. I’m sure you know Cancer is the sign of home and family.
There is more (much more) to be said about July 2016 and its heavily fated role in the lives of Meghan and Harry. I’ve written about her long-term horoscope here.

Another professor I know, qualified epidemiologist, told me that if the entire world shut airports and ports for a month, stayed at home - COVID-19 would run its course. Naturally. It cannot survive. It would be over. This accords with the astrology. Global challenge: do it.Read More
