Whether it is following all the updates on Prince Harry’s and Ms. Meghan Markle’s wedding, predicting the gender of the next royal baby, or reminiscing all the beautiful royal weddings, we all love the royals, don’t we? However, it is Princess Diana who has always been the absolute favorite for most people, including the media which still talks about her, the fashion designers who continue to marvel at her dresses, and the astrology lovers who love to analyze her birth chart. So for all those Diana fans, here is something more about her zodiac sign.

Who was Lady Diana?

For all those who do not know, Diana was the Princess of Wales, married to Prince Charles. She was born to the Viscount and Viscountess Althorp on the 1st of July 1961, and died untimely in a car crash in Paris on the 31st of August 1997. If alive today, she would have been celebrating her 57th birthday this year. Lady Diana shares her son, Prince William’s, zodiac sign, Cancer, and is perhaps one of the most famous Cancer women out there. There are a number of reasons why you, as a Cancer, can relate to her.


The Cancer sign is associated with tradition and heritage. By being born to an aristocratic English family with royal ancestry and then getting married to Prince Charles, Lady Diana, also known as The Honorable Diana Spencer, was well suited for this role. Conversely, being a Cancer also meant that she was someone who enjoyed simplicity, family and a more private life. This explains the difficulties the couple faced in their marriage later on. We understand that with Prince Harry getting married now, the chances for you to ever become a princess have almost been diminished. Nonetheless, as a Cancer sign you can still relate with Lady Diana, when you face same dilemma in your life: where you have to balance your private as well as a demanding career life all together.


Care and Compassion

Diana was a nursery teacher before she married Prince Charles, and later gave birth to two sons Prince William and Prince Harry. Her employment as well as her role as a mother is the perfect representation of a caring Cancer woman. With the moon in the Cancer sign, motherhood and the role of a caregiver is extremely important. Although, she died at the age of 36 when both her sons were quite young, her role as their mother is still admired more than her position as a Princess; old pictures of Lady Diana with William and Harry are an evidence of this.


Lady Diana is an embodiment of diverse positive things for different people. She may be the archetype of beauty for some, for others a role model for an independent women, and for most a source of utmost love and compassion. She is still remembered as the loving mother, rebellious ex-wife and a wonderful friend by everyone. In these different roles she played throughout her life, her personal characteristics as a Cancer woman did shine out.

Her personality can more aptly be described as being soft on the exterior, but tough inside. In the public sphere her feminine planets, namely Venus and the moon always predominated. This explains the huge amount of charitable work she did as well as the love and compassion she had in her heart for the world; this was definitely her motherly feelings as a Cancer woman in play. In contrast to this Diana was definitely had a more powerful or in other words a dominant personality which remained hidden in the background. With Uranus, Mars and Pluto all acting in conjunction she exercised independence in her private life. However, sometimes a mixture of both these paradoxical elements of her personality did show up in the public sphere, with her participation in sports or even when she start kick-boxing as a coping strategy after the breakdown of her marriage with Prince Charles.
