Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, Doing Her Capricorn Thing

It's Capricorn season, and that means we all get an opportunity to benefit from the unique and very determined energy this sign brings while the sun is in its house. Just for fun, let's look at the astrological chart of Kate Middleton, who was born on January 9, 1982. Happy birthday your grace!

Capricorns have a tendency to build things, including careers. They are hard working like nobody's business, and they find their joy in work and success. If you want something to be well run (be it a car or a business), ask a Capricorn! Capricorns also have a strong sense of tradition and honor for what has come before them. As it is the beginning of the year, you can use the energy of Capricorn to build whatever you're looking to create.

Kate Middleton has a Capricorn sun with a Cancer moon and Libra ascendant. She's a great example of her sun sign, and everything about these aspects of her birth chart can be seen in the choices she's made up till now. Saturn rules Capricorn. Saturn is the planet of rules, lessons, and authority. Capricorns are the authority in whatever field and life path they choose. Because Capricorns have a deep respect for family business, tradition, and doing things the old-fashioned way, Kate is a perfect wife for Prince William. For Kate, it is absolutely natural to step into generations of history. The Capricorn that she is accepts the duties of her role without needing individual attention or recognition. She knows that she is invested in something greater than her personality and will joyfully sacrifice for the common good.

Kate makes the role as Duchess of Cambridge look easy because she has Libra ascendant. The ascendant or rising sign determines how you are seen by the world. Kate presents herself as pleasant, charming, kind, and attractive. She has a classic beauty that feels timeless and appropriate for her position as duchess. Even though she's a young woman, her disposition is mature and stable. Kate very much presents as calm, collected, and royal.

Kate has a Cancer moon. Our moon sign is connected to our emotions and how we feel about absolutely everything. People with a Cancer moon are very sensitive because they've been dealt a "double dose" of emotions in many ways. This attribute also makes them sensitive to the feelings of others. And while their emotions are strong, they're gifted at tucking them away when the need arises, much like a crab hides out in its shell and goes unnoticed. Those with a Cancer moon feel a deep connection with their mothers and children, which means that Kate is profoundly tied into the energy and needs of her children and her role as their mom. As the wife of Prince William, Kate's Cancer moon will enhance her ability to nurture and bring warmth to those they host from around the world.

If you are ready to build structures, figuratively and literally, the Capricorn sun is the time to get started. It is solid, determined, and respectful, and it needs little reward for doing what it does best. For a Capricorn, the reward is the result of her diligence and hard work. Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge is perfect example of the benefits of being a Capricorn.

Other famous Capricorns: Michelle Obama, Mary J. Blige, LeBron James, Bradley Cooper, Jim Carrey, Diane Keaton.
