A week is a long time in newsland. Putting together the Astrolutely newsbite I was struggling to find anything upbeat to comment on. There was the “disappearance” in plain sight of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi and the increasingly desperate Brexit situation, which reached yet another new low, and then, “Eureka!” Thank goodness for the Duchess of Sussex.

On Monday, Buckingham Palace announced the royal couple were expecting their first baby in the spring. The news broke just as the couple landed on Australian soil in preparation for their sixteen-day tour of Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand.


The Duke and Duchess of Sussex

Of course, the usual questions immediately came to mind. When will the baby be born and will it be a little girl or boy?

Wearing my Sherlock Holmes deerstalker I believe the baby will be born in April. Given that the announcements of a forthcoming royal birth appear once the first trimester is over that brings us to an expected due date of mid-to-late April. Thus, the Sussexes will be welcoming an Aries or Taurus into the fold.

All families share patterns — think of a family as an astrological gene pool from which certain degree areas and aspects predominate. The strongest shared feature between Meghan and Harry is a Moon-Saturn hard aspect — Moon opposition Saturn in Harry’s case and Moon conjunct Saturn for Meghan — so our search should involve looking for a Moon-Saturn connection in mid-to-late April or the Moon in Capricorn. Which brings us to the 17th April (Moon in Libra square Saturn in Capricorn and the Sun in Aries) and the 24th April (Sun Taurus and Moon in Capricorn conjunct Saturn). I slightly favour the 24th April, which is the day after Prince Louis Arthur was born. A Sun Taurus will make a little more sense and during the last couple of weeks of April the Sun will be conjunct Uranus, which chimes with the strong Uranus theme in the couple’s astrological story.

As for whether it will be a girl or a boy, astrology can give us no answer, but there is an old wives’ tale that if the female is the stronger partner boys will predominate and if the male, girls are more likely. And I think we can probably all agree that Meghan is the stronger of the two so we could be looking at a new little prince.

But please don’t shoot your astrologer if a Pisces baby girl arrives in March. The universe knows…

On Tuesday, the Sun enters Scorpio where it will remain for the next thirty days. Which reminds me of one of the questions that comes up time and time again: why do horoscope columns often differ in their dates for the signs of the zodiac?The date each sign comes in varies year on year due to the continual movement of the earth around the sun and the sun’s apparent movement against the background of the constellations.

It’s not a static thing. Each year the zodiac cycle begins with the sun’s arrival at 0 degrees of Aries – the vernal point, the spring equinox: sometimes it gets there on the 20th and sometimes on the 21st, although in 1796 it entered Aries on the 19th of March. Which is why the sun’s entry into the eleven remaining sign varies year on year.This year, if a baby is born before 12:24 pm GMT on the 23rd it’s going to be a Libra, and thereafter a Scorpio.

But whichever the sun sign, with Mercury, Venus and Jupiter in Scorpio this little girl or boy is going to have many of the qualities of this intense and redoubtable water sign.

Cooking Under The Stars

An excerpt from Woman&Home magazine...

Penny Thornton learned how to cook at around the same time she was taking astrology classes. Back in the late 1970s, her then-husband was a sous-chef at London's Dorchester Hotel. Then in the mid-90s, Penny, who was living in the US, had a ten-minute daily slot on the Food Network, combining astrology and food.

As Penny explains, "The relationship between astrology and food is based on the ancient belief that all things in the universe are connected. Animals, birds, fish and plants were all 'ruled' by a planet or sign."

Penny's new book, The Zodiac Cooks, embraces her two passions. It's an amusing and informative gastronomic romp through the zodiac alongside delicious recipes. So read on to find out whether you really are suited to spelt...
