Prince William is the second in line to the throne and has been showing signs of good character on his part as prince. With his grandmother Elizabeth II’s guidance as Queen and his mother Princess Diana’s influence, he shows all the formulations of being a well-rounded individual and leader. Aside from how he was raised, his Zodiac and birth charts show how Prince William will excel as king and truly “change the world.”

There are three basic parts to one’s zodiac: the sun sign (more commonly known as star sign), the moon sign, and rising sign (otherwise known as the ascendant sign). The sun sign dictates how your personality and character run, while the moon sign tells you how the inner workings of your mind process emotions and feelings. The rising sign shows how you present yourself to the world, kind of a “first impression” that you give off.

Prince William has both the sun and moon signs of Cancer, pointing to a strong characterization and habits known to that particular astrological sign. Those of the Cancer sign are very intuitive, caring and resilient, which clearly shows in the case of the prince. He is also of Sagittarius rising, pointing to a cheerful and witty disposition, as well as a thirst for adventure and learning.

Being in touch with his feelings, Prince William is capable of great compassion and gentleness. This shows in his current philanthropy works and proves more goodwill in his role for the future. A lust for knowledge and adventure points toward new beginnings, and as a king, working toward a brighter and better future is the goal. This shows more innovation in the future and learning from the mistakes of the past.

A look at the prince’s birth charts also points to taking some risks in dealings and also a strong sense of action from the prince. Pointing to strong characteristics as a leader, his signs show big plans for the future and a tenacity to see them fulfilled. With the influence of the Queen’s strong will and his mother’s compassion, the rule of the future king looks to be positive and filled with change.

“This kind of soft energy that emotionally William [has] is very beautiful,” says Leslie McGuirk, astrologer and author of The Power of Mercury. “He’s going to be a great spiritual leader. When he becomes king, he’s going to change the world.”
