are all alligations. If there was no emotional, intellectual and sexual
interaction between these two, the marriage could never have been
arranged, not even by the best of matchmakers.
This became all too evident on Saterday, February 2, 2002 when the
entire Dutch nation witnessed the love of these two young people.
let's take a look at the natal horoscopes of Prince Willem Alexander
and Maxima Zorreguieta, future queen of the Netherlands and let's
see how they interact.

is purposeful and has a positive attitude to life. He also has a good
intellect, although he may at times be too hasty and a little inaccurate
because he also can act at times on impulse. He is spontaneous and
can find a great deal of pleasure in life. Despite his haste at times
he has good insight when things get complicated and situations are
complex. And despite his critical attitude, at certain instances he
will act quickly and sometimes lightly. He has passion, his interst
is quickly arroused and he can react quickly and spontaneously.
is a romanticist who masters the situation. He is original and needs
his independence. Independence is very important for him. That is
also why he sees the needs of others and wants to improve the conditions
of other people. He is easily moved. His relation with dear ones and
friends is based on a deep, warm social feeling, based on what his
heart tells him. His positive social attitude makes him an attractive
and loved person. But since he is living in high cirkels, in seclusion
as it were, he is not able to always estimate the real need of the
very important aspect is that he should participate in some sort of
sport, be it individually or in a group. This will strengthen his
body and mind. This will add to his personal well being and that of
others. He needs to live in a harmonious surrounding otherwise his
scope looses its perspective and conflicts will occur. But in either
case: he will gradually grow to a higher consciousness which will
be demonstrated in his deeds.
easily makes up her mind when it comes to her choice of partner. She
loves her freedom. It is not surprising that it took quite some time
before she decided to choose. And she choose for Willem Alexander.
She presents herself as a person who is certain about herself and
her actions. When observing her one can easily detect that there is
also some uncertainty at times. Her positive presentation shows however
that she is selfcounscious and that she is an energitic person who
will act with zest if necessary. She has a positive attitude towards
life and shows a great responsibility and thus she will expect great
is intelligent and has a gift for languages. The ability of learning
foreign languages shows that she also is able to adept to varying
circomstances, changing surroundings and foreign customs. That does
not mean that she would just follow the directions given by others.
No, she will deep in her heart be a rebel who wants to decide her
own fate. Her choice for Willem Alexander is in accord with this.
Because it is not a common thing to marry royalty, her choice can
be considered as a rebellious act. Compromise is only possible if
she herself is willing to accept and adapt, she will not do it if
adapting is forced on her by others. Certainly, marrying Willem Alexander
is not an easy choice in all respects. But once committed she will
accept the challenge and go for it. That is her character, even if
we all may detect a slight sign of fear and uneasiness in her eyes.
But she will master difficult situations and try to avoid conflict.
challenge is the experiment which is attractive. That is also why
she likes art, especially the expressions of certain modern artists.
Although she likes the experiment and the technical aspect of it one
could expect that she likes to handle money and likes to invest. The
fact that she has the ability to save and to wait for the right moment,
she will be careful dealing with money.
her popularity rose fast, her real success will not be instant and
immediate, but will show after a longer period. She will however be
aware of the fact that what is achieved can be as volatile as a beautiful
and expensive perfume. Thus she will keep both feet on the ground
and be fully conscious of her choices.
Alexander & Maxima
right from the first meeting there must have been a strong attraction
between the two. Very strong. The relation will benefit from the exitement
brought about by a feeling of friendship and this was developing in
the eminent love they have for each other.
Sunday Amsterdam's main newspaper 'Het Parool' immediately came
out with a special edition which documented the wedding on the
is Willem Alexander who supplies the home. Maxima is the stimulating
force to improve this home, as far as their home in the Netherlands
is concerned. Though interesting is the astrological aspect that tells
us that Willem Alexander on his turn could easily go to South America
and adapt to Maxima's surrounding and inspire the home that she can
offer him. Their love is not bound to one specific place. This is
an important aspect in case Willem Alexander would loose the throne.
are able to communicate well about their personal feelings and about
the simple things of the organization of daily life. Maxima is as
strong an amourous force in this relationship as Willem Alexander
is. Both inspire each other and energize the relationship.
In general this astrological aspect has the danger that afer the initial
meeting the intensity can decrease and finally be completely absent.
Other factors counteract this and reinforce the energy between the
two, so it will be present all the time. Of importance is that the
love has the component of deep friendship mentioned earlier. They
should keep this openess towards each other intact and avoid hypocrisy
in situations which are brought about by others more than by themselves.
also are fully able to run the businesslike and representative aspects
of their family life which are brought about by their positions. They
will work together and are very cooperative in case of humanitarian
tasks. They do stimulate each others sense of responsibility. The
positive aspects of this relationship are very strong. If their views
on a specific issue differ, they will be able to discuss these in
order to find common ground instead of disturbing a delicate communicative
