Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding on May 19, 2018 will take place during two retrogrades and a significant planetary movement. Venus, the “planet of love,” is set to move into Cancer, the zodiac sign that represents family and home.

Janet Booth, an astrologist from Connecticut, told Bustle that Venus’ movement into Cancer would be a significant astrological merger, particularly for couples who wish to focus on family. Booth helps engaged couples choose a date for their weddings.

It looks like the universe conspires for the royal wedding. Tarot.com states that the potential for greater intimacy is created when Venus and Cancer get together. It also brings out connections and appreciation for family.

But the planetary movement is not the only thing happening along with the royal wedding. Saturn and Pluto will both be in retrograde, which means the planets’ orbits intersect with Earth's.

Weeks before the royal wedding, Saturn goes in to retrograde on April 17. Pluto's begins on April 22. The two planets will stay in retrograde until September. This does not look to be a bad thing, though. Booth said they probably won’t pose much of a problem since these are not personal planets.

AstroTwins stated that Saturn in retrograde is a time to rethink career paths and goals. It looks like Markle has started doing just that. US television series “Suits,” in which she was known for her character as Rachel, will continue without her. There were reports that she would be retiring from acting so she could focus on her duties as part of the royal family.

Booth said it appears May 19 is actually the best day for Prince Harry and his bride-to-be to get married. She also looked into the pair’s birth charts and found that they are a genuine, compatible match as far as the placement of their signs is concerned.

"The Sun in Taurus promises stability and lots of hugs and physical affection, the moon in Cancer is warm and caring, very family-oriented, but possibly influenced by moods," Booth told Bustle. In addition, the choice of wedding date stimulates parts of the couple’s charts related to having kids, so May 19 is said to be a decent date if Harry and Markle want to have their own children.
