#28 Prince Alfred, son of Victoria and Albert of England

Prince Alfred was born in Windsor Castle on August 6, 1844 at 7:50 am. His biographical data is here; a pleasant but unimpressive man. His son is #29, Prince Alfred of Edinburgh (Alfred Alexander William Ernest Albert) and his daughter Princess Marie Alexandra Victoria, born on 29 October 1875, is #646 as Queen of Roumania.

His chart shows a preponderance of sextiles and an absence of planets in common signs, exemplifying a savoir faire that others found pleasing, but it was his determination by retrogradation in the southern hemisphere that helped attract socially better mates for his children.

Cammille Adams the Astrologer

Cammille Adams, aka THE GRANDE DAME of Maryland astrology and was the Founding Member of the Annapolis Chapter of the National Council for Geocosmic Research. (NGCR). The first meeting was held on March 8, 1992 at 1:04PM at her home in Bowie, Maryland with 10 members.

There is no record of what town she was born in England, just the county, so we picked Oxford. We rectified her, probably erroneously, based on what little information we could find in her obit by astrologer and current president of the Annapolis chapter, Lynn Koiner on the Astrology Memorial site founded by the late Donna Cunningham and what else we could find. This gave us 23 Libra, “a woman in pastel colours carrying a heavy load,” whose keyword is Reticence.

Her Midheaven of 30 Cancer gets the SS of a “meeting of the literary society,” that is dead to rites to her eleventh house cusp for inaugural Annapolis meeting held in her home.

Mrs. Adams met her first husband during World War II when she was a firefighter, 24 Libra partile her Ascendant, has the SS of a “third wing on the left side of a butterfly” highlighting her potential. They relocated to the States after the War. There is no mention of her second or succeeding husbands. She reposed on May 11, 2011 in Bowie, Maryland.
