Kate and William’s first born son was brought into the world at exactly 4.24pm yesterday afternoon which makes him a Cancerian, sharing a star sign with his father and grandmother the Princess Diana, however he narrowly missed being a Leo by half an hour.These star signs might be right next to each other in the zodiac but the personality traits exhibited by both star sign’s are very different due to the fact that Cancer is a water sign ruled by the Moon leading to more sensitive personality traits and Leo is a Fire sign ruled by the Sun leading to overly confident personality traits.
Astrology experts have been commenting on what this could mean for our new prince’s personality.
Deike Begg, an astrologer with The Association of Professional Astrologers International stated that the timings of the birth were crucial to determining the personality traits of the baby prince.
“This baby will share a lot of the parents’ personality traits. As a Cancer, the child will be very family oriented like its parents and sensitive. Cancers often appear strong on the outside but are very soft on the inside. But with a Capricorn moon it would also be aware of its responsibilities and dependable”.
There has also been a lot of speculation around the Full Moon being responsible for Kate going into labour as their has been an Old wives tale for many years that the full moon brings women into labour which has led to a theory that the moon’s gravitational pull effects the amniotic fluid in much the same way as it affects the water in the sea, rivers and even the water that’s otherwise found in our bodies.
As a woman’s body prepares for natural childbirth, the amniotic sac becomes distended so the point where it will easily burst if put under pressure. Under normal circumstances, the pressure of labor contractions bursts the sac. During a full moon, the pressure caused by the moon’s effect on the water inside the sac can cause the same things to happen, but without the accompanying contractions. It has been noted that maternity wards are busier on a full moon but their is little scientific proof.
