January CeleBaby RoundUp Featuring Florence May King

Candice Accola King
Candice Accola King (The Vampire Diaries) welcomed her first child, Capricorn daughter Florence May, with her husband Joe on Friday, January 15, 2016.

Florence has the Sun, Mercury, and Pluto all in Capricorn, so she may tend to be serious-minded and thinks carefully about what she is going to say and how she wants to say it before she expresses her opinions and ideas. Also, Mercury is in retrograde motion in her chart, which means that when Florence was born, Mercury appeared to be moving backward in its orbit through the sky. 

Of course, the planets don't change directions. We view the sky and its heavenly bodies from earth and we're orbiting the sun just like the other planets are so sometimes it looks like we're overtaking another planet on the solar system freeway. That can give us the visual impression that the planet we overtake is actually moving backward, when in fact, we're passing it as we both travel in our own orbit "lanes" around the sun.

Mercury represents our mind and our voice - how we think and how we communicate - and the sign it's in can describe the style in which we do that. When Mercury (or any planet) is retrograde, it expresses its symbolism in a chart a little differently than usual. If can often seem like it takes more time to mentally process what one thinks or wants to say. This isn't due to lack of intelligence or any serious setbacks necessarily--it can often simply be that this person thinks things through longer. 

Florence's Mercury is in a square to the planet Uranus in the impulsive and straightforward sign of Aries, which is also her moon sign. This can change Mercury's tune a little bit since Uranus in Aries tends to bring sudden bursts of energy - so watch out! When Florence is ready to be heard, she'll shout it from the rooftops!

Mlle. Kiddie also congratulates these Hollywood parents who welcomed new family members in January:

    • Shannan Click and Jack Huston (Boardwalk Empire) welcomed their second child, a Capricorn son named Cypress Night Huston in mid-January.
    • Louis Tomlinson (One Direction) and Briana Jungwirth had their first baby, an Aquarius son named Freddie Reign, on January 21st.

    • Singer Michael Bublé and wife Luisana Lopilato welcomed their second baby, an Aquarius son named Elias, on January 22nd.
    • Tyra Banks and her boyfriend Erik Asla welcomed a baby via gestational surrogate, an Aquarius (or Capricorn!?) son named York. Tyra announced the birth on January 27th.

Since there is no birth time published for Florence, a noon chart has been used. However, an exact birth time must be known to calculate the houses and ascendant in a natal chart, so only planets in signs have been discussed.

Aquarius Signature Star Child: Rocco Cannavale

Rocco, son of Rose Byrne (Spy, Annie) and Bobby Cannavale (Ant-Man, Annie), is our Aquarius Signature Star Child!

Rocco will be strong and independent - especially intellectually. With Mercury in Capricorn conjunct Pluto, he'll have an intense conviction behind his ideas and opinions and a deep desire to know and understand complex but subtle truths, even at a young age. This Mercury-Pluto conjunction is also in a tense and tight square with Uranus, the rebel planet. He'll be able to stick to his guns and think for himself, but he may have a hard time being humble enough to learn from others' different perspective once he's made up his mind about something!

He may also be quite the scientist--his Mercury-Pluto in practical Capricorn will have him wanting to get to the bottom line of something by putting it to the test to see results and he could be well-suited for research of some kind when he grows up. If research doesn't intrigue him, investigation might. While he'll be as curious as the next person, it's really the drive to get answers and uncover secrets that will thrill him, with Mercury conjunct Pluto but also Mars and his Moon both in the penetrating sign of Scorpio. This planetary duo also points to intense emotions which he may have difficulty revealing or expressing easily. More on that from his Kiddiegram:

Moon in Scorpio:

     Rocco tends to brood, and he seems to really need to do this sometimes. Having a private place to retreat to - a place to think or dream or just be alone - would be very good for him. His introspective or quiet side should be respected, and his dark moods are likely to lift naturally, if he is allowed to let them be, without being encouraged to "snap out of it" or to be outgoing and cheerful when he does not feel that way. A gentle touch of humor can be helpful, though, when he is taking himself too seriously.
     Rocco is also quite adept at reading other people's feelings and sensing what is going on beneath the surface of a person or situation, and he can become rather confused or mistrustful when people are pretending - saying and acting one way when they feel something else entirely. You will find there is little you can hide from him, and honesty, even if it makes you uncomfortable, is the only thing which will earn his respect and trust.
Mars in Scorpio:

     Rocco is very strong-willed, in a rather quiet way. When he wants something, the intensity of his desire and determination is formidable. Though he will not seek out confrontation, he will fight fiercely if he sees no other way.
