Those Venus-ruled moon signs are everything.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s relationship has had its fair share of challenges. From falling in love in 2016 to stepping back from the royal family in 2020, it hasn’t been the simplest fairytale. Through it all, however, the couple has managed to support each other, keeping a united front again and again. It’s clear that the couple has something special — fortunately, Netflix’s Harry & Meghan, coming on Dec. 8, promises to share more details of their love story. But even without a docuseries, a closer look at Harry and Meghan’s astrological compatibility reveals why they work so well together.
Harry was born September 15, making him a Virgo, and Markle was born August 4, making her a Leo. Though these two signs aren’t the most compatible on the surface — earth and fire signs often don’t mix — the rest of Harry and Meghan’s birth charts give their pairing the stability it needs to flourish. The couple’s rising signs help them learn from each other, while their moon signs keep romance in the air.
Although Harry and Meghan’s zodiac signs aren’t the picture of astrological compatibility, it’s clear they’ve aced the challenges of long-term partnership. With two children and a charitable foundation, this couple is proof that the stars don’t determine everything — even if their Venus-ruled moon signs have given them an extra boost. Ahead, all the details on Harry and Meghan’s zodiac sign compatibility.
Meghan and Harry’s rising signs are polar opposites, but that might not be a bad thing. “Meghan's Cancer rising is the exact opposite of Harry's Capricorn rising, but in astrology, opposites are far more similar and complementary than dissimilar,” Jackson explains. “Meghan's Cancer rising seeks emotional security and comfort in everything she does, while Harry's Capricorn rising prioritizes structure, stability, and achievement.”
Their differences can actually help their romance — and family life — be more harmonious. “Commonly referred to as the mom and dad of the zodiac, Cancer and Capricorn create the perfect home archetype — Cancer risings create a home that's familiar, nurturing, and safe, while Capricorn risings are all about creating boundaries and upholding discipline,” Jackson explains. “Together, Harry and Meghan are able to establish a home where neither emotional support nor practicality is neglected, which can create the ultimate balance.”
Meghan and Harry’s moon signs are where things get really interesting and romantic. “Harry and Meghan both have Venus-ruled moon signs, which makes them both incredibly romance-oriented,” Jackson says. “Harry's Taurus moon seeks safety, comfort, and security in relationships, and is cautious to any sudden changes that may disrupt his solace, while Meghan's social, creative Libra moon aims to treat everyone she encounters as an equal, and is prepared to resolve conflict effortlessly.”
According to Jackson, both “prioritize pleasure, peace, and connection in all of their endeavors.” There won't be much fighting between these two. Even when there are disagreements, the couple will strive to be civil. “Sharing Venus-ruled moon signs, these two rarely engage in heated conflict or discourse, and likely approach challenges from the perspective of being on the same side, instead of as opponents,” Jackson adds.
