Have you taken a peek at the Meghan Markle birth chart revelations? Those who study the cosmos are plenty curious about the Duchess of Sussex and the stars. 

Now that the long-awaited Harry and Meghan Netflix series has premiered, viewers have lots to unpack: the couple's decision to leave royal life behind, a look inside joint ventures with Netflix and Archwell productions and, of course, family life. 

Those tuning in for the first three episodes might've uncovered a few surprising revelations from Meghan & Harry—Prince Harry had an Instagram account?!—but the celestial-minded seem to think that everything has already been written in the Suits actor's astrological birth chart

So, what have the stars revealed? Let's dive in.

Meghan Markle Birth Chart findings + Meghan Markle star sign

Meghan was born on August 4, 1981 at 4:46am PT in Canoga Park, California, which means she is a Leo (a beloved fire sign) a Libra moon and a Cancer rising. 

As you're likely aware, a fire sign is spirited, upbeat and incredibly loving (which is a good thing if you're dating or married to one). The bad news? There tends to be a little bit of drama along the way for this member of the zodiac. 

"Fire signs not only spark passion but create a wildfire of frenzy," astrologer Liz Simmons (opens in new tab) previously told My Imperfect Life. 

Given that we get a sneak peek of Markle's struggles in the documentary, including her inability to fit in with the monarch, press intrusion and hateful commentary, the stars seem to be on point. 

"I just really want to get to the other side of all of this. I don’t know what to say anymore," we hear her say in between tears when deciding to step back from royal life.

With a Libra moon, Meghan also embodies notable traits of an air sign, including intelligence, charm and unfortunately, the tendency to overthink.

Prince Harry Birth Chart findings + Prince Harry star sign

Prince Harry was born on September 15, 1984 at 4:20pm GMT in Paddington, England, which makes him a Virgo, a reliable, loyal earth sign. He is a Capricorn rising with a moon sign in Taurus. 

According to astrologer Penny Thornton, who has worked with the late Princess Diana, she has a hard time separating today's Prince Harry from the little one she met many moons ago. (See what we did there?) She believes the fun-loving Harry didn't necessarily change, but rather his Capricornian and Saturnian influences put certain things into perspective and lead him towards becoming the serious, take-matters-into-your-own-hands man we know today.

"He is a person who has a purpose, and cares about the meaning of his life, and what he wants to do with it, she revealed to TODAY (opens in new tab)

Considering his philanthropic work and his desire to make mental health part of the conversation, we'd have to agree with what Thornton's uncovered in his chart. 

Are Prince Harry and Meghan Markle astrologically compatible? 

Here's the thing about astrological compatibility—anything can work, provided you're open to it.  

"If you're not willing to work with a sign, then maybe you have to figure out why. That probably says more about you and the shadow aspects of your own zodiac sign more so than [someone else's]," Simmons further revealed to My Imperfect Life.

That being said, some argue that the fire and earth signs, which semisextile, don't necessarily mesh well together. Others, however, believe their differences make their bond all the more strong. Our opinion? If you love each other and you're willing to make it work, it doesn't matter what's in your chart.

The first three episodes of Harry & Meghan are now available Netflix. The next episodes will drop on Thursday, December 15.
