It does however raise hopes that she will finally provide the playboy ruler with an heir to the throne. Only 'direct and legitimate' descendants born within marriage are allowed to rule the tiny Mediterranean tax-haven. Earlier this year a Monaco government source told Point de Vue magazine: Prince Albert of Monaco and his partner Charlene Wittstock announced their engagement today The Playboy prince has previously dated Brooke Shields left and Claudia Schiffer He has also battled persistent rumours he is gay.
Albert has a year-old daughter Jazmin Grace Grimaldi with Californian Tamara Rotolo. His fatherhood was only confirmed by DNA three years ago after a long legal battle. In , former Air France air hostess Nicole Coste, from Togo, proved that her son was Albert's. Both cases cost Albert millions and he is still supporting the mothers and children financially. Albert's parents Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier on their wedding day in April But the Grimaldi dynasty that has ruled for more than seven centuries is also familiar with tragedy and bad publicity: Kelly died in a car crash, and her children, Albert, Caroline and Stephanie, regularly made headlines for the wrong reasons.
More camera-shy than his photogenic siblings, Albert once said press intrusion was partly to blame for his prolonged bachelorhood. Additional secondary elements are: They are all posited on the Zodiac wheel consisting of twelve signs, from Aries to Pisces, and divided into twelve astrological houses. The first step is to evaluate the importance of each planet.
This is what we call identifying the dominant planets. This process obeys rules that depend on the astrologer's sensitivity and experience but it also has precise and steady bases: Finally, other criteria such as the rulership of the Ascendant and the Midheaven etc. These different criteria allow a planet to be highlighted and lead to useful conclusions when interpreting the chart.
The overall chart analysis begins with the observation of three sorts of planetary distributions in the chart: Eastern or Western hemisphere, Northern or Southern hemisphere, and quadrants North-eastern, North-western, South-eastern and South-western. These three distributions give a general tone in terms of introversion and extraversion, willpower, sociability, and behavioural predispositions.
Then, there are three additional distributions: There are three types of dominants: The novice thinks astrology means only "to be Aries" or sometimes, for example, "to be Aries Ascendant Virgo". It is actually far more complex. Although the Sun and the Ascendant alone may reveal a large part of the character - approximately a third or a half of your psychological signature, a person is neither "just the Sun" called the sign nor just "the first house" the Ascendant.
Thus, a particular planet's influence may be significantly increased; a particular sign or house may contain a group of planets that will bring nuances and sometimes weaken the role of the Ascendant, of the Sun sign etc. Lastly, there are two other criteria: They provide some additional informations. These general character traits must not be taken literally; they are, somehow, preparing for the chart reading.
They allow to understand the second part of the analysis, which is more detailed and precise. It focuses on every area of the personality and provides a synthesis of all the above-mentioned parameters according to sound hierarchical rules. Hemispheres and Quadrants for Albert II, Prince of Monaco The axis linking the 1st house's cuspide the Ascendant to the 7th house's cuspide - the Descendant - divides the zodiac into two bowls, a superior bowl, in the South, and an inferior bowl in the North.
Quoting an expression by the famous American astrologer Rudhyar, the Southern part and the Northern part correspond to two functions: Other concepts are also associated with this North and South distribution, such as introversion - Northern hemisphere - and extraversion - Southern hemisphere - being or appearances, inner life or external life, reflection or action, dreaming one's life or living one's dreams, the abstract or the concrete, backstage or limelight.
This is not about determination but about personal inclination: If this happens, however, it will not be due to their will, their taste or their deep nature.
