Kate Middleton was born during a Total Lunar Eclipse

Kate Middleton, Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge was born on 9th January 1982 during a Total Lunar eclipse and it has proved lucky for her so far…


Kate Middleton was born as Catherine Elizabeth Middleton on January 9, 1982, during a total lunar eclipse, in Reading, Berkshire, England.


In her birth chart the Sun with Ketu and the Moon with the other lunar node viz. Rahu indicates her birth during an eclipse.

The Rahu/Ketu axis formed over the 1st and the 7th houses proved lucky for her as Rahu and Ketu are exalted.

For her Mars is Troublesome

In 2002 during the sub-sub-period of Mars in the sub-period of Venus in the main period of Saturn (Sa/Ve/Ma) Prince William romantically fell in love with her. Kate did not respond to William’s advances at that time since she already had a boyfriend. This was caused due to malefic Mars as it owns the 6th house of difficulties.

Mercury as the Ascendant Lord Proved Lucky

Later in 2003, during the sub-sub-period of Mercury in the sub-period of Venus in the main period of Saturn (Sa/Ve/Me) after her boyfriend parted, Middleton and the prince fell into a natural romance, and began dating. The sub-sub-period of Mercury proved lucky as it is her ascendant lord.

Jupiter as the 7th Lord got her Married

During the sub-period of the 7th lord Jupiter in the main period of Saturn, on November 16, 2010, Middleton and Prince William announced their engagement.

They got married at Westminster Abbey on April 29, 2011 during the same sub-period of Jupiter.

In her birth chart Jupiter as the 7th lord is placed in the 5th house of love affairs. So it indicates marriage through love affair.

Mars again Plays Naughty

Middleton made headlines in September 2012, when photos of her sunbathing topless in southern France were published by a French magazine. This happened during the Sub-sub-period of Mars in the sub-period of Jupiter in the Main period of Saturn (Sa/Ju/Ma).

So for her Mars being the 6th lord and conjunct its enemy Saturn always causes troubles for her.

Overall she has been very lucky in spite of her birth during an eclipse.
