London to Wait For Royal Baby News
Many have heard the story:
Kate Middleton, ’a commoner’, was elevated
to elite status during the romantic, fairytale narrative of being swept
up to marry a Prince of the land. Prince William was young, fresh, and
modern, a far cry from his father’s generation and the dark shadow of
his mother’s death.
This popularity came at a time when the approval
of royalty was at a dangerous low.
The role of an elite royalty class - symbols of
inherited privilege, and the royals’ own personal finances - largely funded
by taxpayers, was being closely examined and questions were being raised
about their usefulness in a modern western democracy.
Not unlike the drama surrounding the Royal Wedding in 2011 pairing Kate
Middleton and Prince William, this newly born baby has drawn the attention
of well-wishers, royal followers, simple gawkers, and irritated naysayers
Most importantly, however, the wedding and baby
has manifested popularity for the Royals as not seen since before the death
Princess of Wales.
As always, surrounding the birth of a royal, there are symbols, ceremonies
and rituals involved.
Son During Moon
The baby boy child was reportedly born via natural birth 22 July 2013, the
day of a supermoon (a
This month’s full moon falls one day
after July’s lunar perigee, which is the moon’s closest point to Earth
for this monthly orbit. Astronomers will call this full moon a perigee
full moon, but everyone else will call it a supermoon.
This is an interesting 'concurrence' as the
baby’s father, Prince William, was born on the summer solstice (June 21st,
1982), and the baby’s mother, Kate, was born during a total lunar eclipse
the same year (January 9, 1982), and are sometimes referred to as the
’Solstice King and his Lunar Queen’.
For those of you wondering if the
marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton is fated, defying all odds
- it’s true!
The remarkable birth of Prince William on a
Solar Eclipse - meeting of the Sun and the Moon - on the Summer Solstice
has dazzled many astrologers for years, as this reflects the “Solstice
King” of the old myths of the UK.
When studying the chart of Kate, lo and
behold, she was born on the Lunar Eclipse just after the Winter Solstice
in the same year as Wills!
As many of you who know the basics of astrology are aware, the Sun is
the “King” and the Moon is his sacred feminine counterpart. For those of
us north of the equator, the Winter Solstice is the darkest day of the
year and feminine in nature. The Summer Solstice is the longest day of
the year and masculine in nature.
Eclipses are considered to be the
windows or gateways through which we communicate with all
that is beyond time and space.
Astrologers have pointed out that the end of
July is hosting a rare alignment:
Monday, July 29 features an incredibly
rare aspect known as a
It’s essentially a six-pointed star, or hexagram, comprised of seven
planets that form harmonious angles (trines and sextiles) to each other.
This synergistic seven are all in “feminine” (earth or water) signs,
emphasizing stability, gentleness, love and harmony.
Many astrologers view this as the moment our
culture will take a step toward embracing “feminine” principles.
More rituals and traditions were observed, as reported by
The baby will officially be known as HRH
Prince (name) of Cambridge.
The Queen, other senior members of the Royal family and the Middleton
family had already been informed when the announcement was made.
In line with royal tradition, the Duke and Duchess have not yet revealed
the baby’s name. The Duke of Cambridge was not named for a week after
his birth, partly because his parents reportedly disagreed over names.
Celebratory gun salutes will now be fired by the King’s Troop Royal
Horse Artillery in Green Park (41 rounds) and the Honorable Artillery
Company at the Tower of London (62 rounds).
Baby Cambridge will make his public debut when the Duchess of Cambridge
leaves hospital and stands on the same spot where Diana, Princess of
Wales was first photographed holding Prince William 31 years ago.
No date has yet been set for when the baby will be christened, but it is
likely to be some time in the autumn, when the Royal family return from
their summer break
The Duke of Cambridge, for example, was christened six weeks after his
birth, in the Music Room of Buckingham Palace, using water drawn from
the River Jordan in the Holy Land, in keeping with a tradition dating
back to the Crusades.
Another royal tradition is for babies to wear a lace and satin
christening robe made in 1841 and worn by all of Queen Victoria’s
children and every generation of royal babies since, including Prince
with husband Prince Charles, 1982.
There have been many
echoes between Kate and Diana. Presenting the baby in a polka-dot frock is
Are these things
arranged or happenstance?
As of writing, the baby’s name has not been released, but these symbolic and
important call signs are never made without precise planning and
The name of a royal child isn’t a random
selection, but almost always a purposeful and deliberate repetition of
ancestors, who themselves maintained positions of power and rulership.
The names can invoke gods, celestial bodies,
desires for certain fates, and more.
Whether or not these associations are aspects of
real power or not, in many cases
elite believe them to be, and it’s wise to recognize that
belief, for their actions and decisions may affect the world around us.
In the end, you can follow the Royals and all their ups and downs or turn a
blind eye to any aspect of their existence, but know that a royal baby means
the monarchy endures whether people like it or not.
