Wedding Date for Prince William and Kate Middleton predicted by Astrology


HRH Prince William and Kate Middleton


To His Royal Highness Prince William Arthur Philip Louis of Wales, Royal Knight Companion of the Most Noble Order of the Garter, and Miss Kate Middleton.

Your Royal Highness, Madame,

Firstly, may I be the first astrologer, tarot reader, ceremonial magician and all-round expert on the occult to congratulate you both on the happy event of your engagement. I daresay you are giving much thought to the preparations for the big-day. It is in this connection that I, as a loyal subject and Facebook fan of your (William’s) Royal Grandmother, wish to lend my assistance – to wit: picking the best date for the Wedding.

It is possible to calculate the best time astrologically speaking for any given occasion – this is a particular discipline known as Electional Astrology. I have taken the liberty of speculating what criteria you may feel best conducive to a good Wedding:

  1. Love
  2. Longevity
  3. The beginning of a successful partnership
  4. General good fortune and happiness.

In astrological terms these are respectively represented by:

  1. Venus – for obvious reasons;
  2. Saturn (which although in one respect is the planet of death, conversely it is also the planet of long-life when well aspected);
  3. Mercury – which as the planet of communication also rules over new ventures and agreements;
  4. Miscellaneous other planets – e.g. Jupiter, Mars, Sun or Moon, so long as they are all well aspected (or at the very least, not badly aspected).

The rule of thumb in Electional Astrology is to have regard to the position of the Moon. Thus I would suggest a date to you which fulfills the following criteria:

  1. It is on the Day and in the hour of Venus (i.e. it should be on a Friday – the hour of Venus I will refer to later);
  2. It should be when the Moon is waxing – because a waxing moon is traditionally good for attracting new influences, i.e. attracting good fortune;
  3. The Moon should form favourable aspects primarily with Venus, and secondarily with Saturn, Mercury and other planets.

This actually narrows the number of dates available down in 2011 considerably. Obviously there are only 52 Fridays. 26 of these will be eliminated because they occur when the Moon is waning. Furthermore, I have eliminated all Fridays occurring between the end of January and the 13th June, because Saturn will be retrograde on those dates. Likewise, I have eliminated all Fridays which occur when Mercury is retrograde (it is always a bad idea to begin a new venture when Mercury is retrograde).

Of those that remain, most are unremarkable astrologically speaking – except one, which is the date I recommend for your wedding. It is:

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 7TH 2011, at 1.42pm

OK, I know the idea of an Autumn wedding is a bit unconventional but I beg to be indulged for one moment. The great thing about

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 7TH 2011, at 1.42pm

is that it fulfils all the relevant criteria – the Moon is trine Venus, trine Saturn, trine Mercury and trine the Sun. A win win win win situation! The business about 1.42pm is what I was referring to about planetary hours – 1.42 is the beginning of the midday Venus hour that Friday. You could also have held it at dawn the same day, but not only would that have involved getting up far too early, the Moon would still have been within the orb of a Mars opposition. However by holding it in the afternoon this situation is neatly avoided.


Friday October 7th 2011, 1.42pm - Alex Sumner's suggested date for the royal wedding.


In conclusion, I earnestly offer you this advice freely without any suggestion of a reward *cough* KCVO *cough*. My best wishes for the future to you both,

Your obedient servant,

Alex Sumner.

PS: Any commoners reading this might actually get the hint that the same day would also be a good day for their wedding as well – to share in the Royal couple’s good fortune, as it were.

  2. I’m so going to get you to work out my wedding date. 😉 I think that’s a perfect date for a wedding.

    I would say that in Chaldean numerology (the only one that is largely valid, though Vedic numerology is certainly valid for days) – the number 7 would be good for relations.

    The number 29 is a heavy karmic number associated with difficulties in love – and isn’t Diana’s pathetic marriage to Charles proof of that? One of my sisters married on the 29th, and she is still happy (after a period of suffering and tests)…so perhaps there is happiness allowable….

    If Saturn is trining Venus or the Sun….I would not recommend unless the orbs are well beyond 3 degrees. Reason is – Saturn and the Sun are not happy together, and Venus will find Saturn a bit of a dark spot. It adds stability and respectability, but no real joy unless you are a really dry sort of character (perhaps Kate is, being a Capricorn with a #8 birthday).

    While Venus in hard aspect to Saturn is a known disaster, even the soft trine aspects to Saturn may not yield much happiness in love. It’s perhaps a bit better in synastry – in between charts and assuming that the Venus person wants stability and loyalty more than irresponsible fun….

    Waxing moon is good – it means the marriage has growth and strenght in it, but early (within 3 days) is perhaps better.

    Hmmm, what do you think about September 3rd, 2011? I noticed that Sun trines Jupiter on that date and from what I’ve read of Magi Astrology that is one of the best times for starting new endeavours, businesses, marriages, etc.

    Also wondering if you could comment on these synastry combinations which appear very challenging in a relationship chart:

    Her Sun square his Mercury, Mars and quincunx his Saturn
    Her Venus square his Mercury, Mars and quincunx his Saturn
    Her Saturn square his Mercury, Mars and quincunx his Saturn

    Or the same as above read:

    His Mercury square her Sun, Venus and Saturn
    His Mars square her Sun, Venus and Saturn (but trine Uranus and Pluto)
    His Saturn quincunx her Sun, Venus and Saturn.

    There’s a real pattern here, but I’m curious to see what your interpretation would be of these elements.

    They are Aquarius (female), Libra (male) both with fire ascendents and his Jupiter conjunct her Sun, Venus, Mars and Saturn. Her Jupiter trine his Sun and Uranus.

    • I had not considered September 3rd 2011 because the Moon is in a not particularly brilliant position (when I learnt electional astrology I was told always look to the position of the Moon first). The Moon is Trine Mars… but it is square to both Mercury (the planet of Communication and successful contracts) and Neptune (the planet of Romance).

      Jupiter is in a good position. You did not mention that it also trines Venus that day as well, which itself is conjunct the Sun. The fact that Venus is well-placed is far more telling when it comes to marriages, I feel – Jupiter’s significance is more in general terms.

      So although your suggested date does have some good things to be said in its favour, because of the Moon thing I just feel that it’s not the most ideal. I have to admit I had not looked at the synastry, but thanks for bringing it to my attention.

    I am sharing this because I would be glad to know Alex’s opinion about my marriage which took place at 5A.M GMT on 7th Oct 2011 and it broke within a month. (Our decision to get married on that day has got nothing to do with this site)

    I got married on the same date with the love of my life. But within a month we got separated because of some silly verbal misunderstanding and finally ego clash. We never had ego problems before. We were best friends. I will not go back to him. And I know he won’t come. Not soon. Coincidentally, he is a political celebrity in our country!

    We broke up on 4th November. Not even a month from the date. I miss him. I miss ‘us’. Probably sounds funny or little too dramatic but I almost feel like I am counting my last days. I have nothing but hope and I hope one day he will return .. or may be not.
