Harry And Meghan Markle's Wedding
Love, Zodiac

They'll have a Taurus marriage.

Make your calendars: the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle is on May 19, 2018.

Choosing a date is one of the first parts of wedding planning. According to Vogue, the couple strayed from royal norms once again by planning their wedding for a weekend date rather than the traditional weekday, perhaps to avoid needing a bank holiday for British citizens.

If you’re a follower of astrology, you know very well that’s there’s more to a date than just numbers. Just as your birthday provides you with a zodiac sign that maps out your personality traits and goings on in your life, weddings have their own personal signs as well, which means yes — along with your zodiac compatibility with your future spouse, your marriage has its own horoscope.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Zodiac Compatibility

Meghan is a Leo, meaning she was built for the royal spotlight. This fire sign lives for being admired and has the passionate, generous personality to achieve it. Clearly, Meghan’s done just that!

Harry, on the other hand, was born under Virgo, an earth sign. Virgos are typically strong and practical — meaning Harry wouldn’t have chosen Meghan if it didn’t make perfect sense!

The Leo and Virgo zodiac signs couldn’t be any more different, but it’s a good thing! As they say, opposites attract. It’s likely Harry was drawn to Meghan’s vibrant personality as she is able to add a little oomph to his life (I mean, as much more oomph as an heir to the royal throne could need).

That’s not to say their marriage will be perfect — while Leo loves the spotlight, Virgo prefers taking the back seat whenever possible. However, Meghan’s impulsive approach to life will benefit from Harry’s practicality and vice versa.

Royal Wedding Date Marriage Horoscope

The May 19th date means Harry and Meghan’s marriage will lie under the Taurus zodiac sign. Ruled by Venus, the planet of love, this is great news (especially for their sex life)!

Taurus is logical, deliberate, and slow-moving. This gives Meghan and Harry’s marriage a strong foundation, one that can continue to be built upon as time goes on rather than one that eventually peters out. Even better, Taurus is also notorious for being indulgent, so you know they will continue to do everything they can for each other throughout their relationship.

Of course, the Taurus symbol is the stubborn bull. Harry and Meghan may find themselves on opposite sides of the spectrum at times, each one unwilling to change their minds, causing them to get stuck in ruts along the way. But even through these differences, the loyal Taurus marriage has a promising future.

Saturn in retrograde in Capricorn:

I know, I know. You hear “retrograde” and your first thought is probably, “uh oh!” However, unlike the sneaky Mercury retrogrades that lead to communication breakdowns, Saturn in retrograde in its home sign of Capricorn is actually a good thing.

Saturn is the planet of limitations and practicality. While that sounds like no fun at all, this planetary alignment gives Meghan and Harry the chance to manifest good karma throughout their relationship. During Saturn retrogrades, we’re often forced to take it slow and pay attention to the building blocks in relationships. Paired with the Taurus wedding date, Harry and Meghan’s marriage will have an incredibly strong foundation built on good judgment and true love.

Jupiter in retrograde in Scorpio:

Yes, another planet in retrograde. Good ol’ Jupiter, the planet of prosperity and good fortune, will be retrograde in Scorpio. So what does Jupiter in retrograde mean for Harry and Meghan?

When Jupiter is in retrograde, it might feel like things slow down, and for them, it undoubtedly will. A wedding is almost like the peak of a relationship (at least in the public eye), and what you’ve worked toward for the duration of your time together. From there, you’re together ‘til death do you part.

During Jupiter in retrograde, obstacles become apparent. However, this is a time of personal growth, once again giving the couple’s marriage a strong foundation to sit on as they become more intimately connected with both their own needs and their needs as a couple.

Venus in Gemini:

Venus is the planet of love. While in Gemini, we get more clarity about the things that make us truly happy. After the whirlwind of dating, engagement, and wedding planning, Harry and Meghan will find that their marriage will allow them to connect on a more intimate intellectual level. They won’t let their emotions run their marriage — instead, they’ll find that they can remain practical and think things through together.

Moon in Cancer:

Astrologer Lisa Schaim told Refinery29 that the moon is the “emotional backdrop” for your wedding day. On May 19, the moon will be in Cancer, the same sign that it rules, which Schaim called “generally reassuring” for marriages. Throughout their marriage, Harry and Meghan will be in tune with both their own emotions and each others’, and will always make each other and their family a priority.
