Princess Diana’s lover, Islamic art expert Oliver Hoare has died. He was the most passionate of her string of liaisons as her marriage cracked and she dreamed of running away to Italy with him. He was married with three children, luckily for him to a French wife more laid back about extra-marital flings than most, and he wouldn’t leave them. He was a friend of Prince Charles before and after the affair in that odd laissez-faire aristo way. It came to public notice after she and Hoare broke up when he reported obsessive numbers of nuisance silent phone calls which were traced back to Princess Diana.
Born 18 July 1945 (Times obit) he was a Sun, Saturn in Cancer with a Scorpio Moon. His Mars in Taurus was conjunct her 5th house Venus in Taurus so there would be a powerful attraction; and his Moon was conjunct her Neptune, trine her Sun Mercury and square her Jupiter so he would stir up her dreams and fantasies.
Their relationship chart had a frivolous, indulgent composite Jupiter opposition Venus with Jupiter square Pluto, so for a while it would feel empowering. But there was an insurmountable composite Neptune opposition Saturn square Sun Mars Uranus conjunction. Neptune Saturn can give rise to paranoia and Uranus Neptune can be fanatical. The tr Uranus Neptune in Capricorn was stirring up that T Square when they split in 1994 and she clearly went into meltdown. Tr Pluto would also be opposing her Venus which would stoke up the intensity of her feelings.
Prince Charles’ Scorpio Sun opposed her Venus which would give a frisson of attraction, but his Uranus fell in her 7th house of one-to-one relationships, so it was never going to work. Plus a dose of competitiveness from his Mars on her Ascendant; and the relationship chart had an exact composite Mars Neptune which leads to only-one-can-win-games. One succeeds, the other feels diminished, so the opposite of mutually supportive.
Will Carling, the rugby player – a lively Sun Sagittarius opposition Jupiter square Uranus Pluto – and Hasnat Khan, the heart surgeon – a Sun Venus in Aquarius with a Cancer/Leo Moon – who were also her lovers, both had Venus in Aquarius conjunct her Jupiter which would boost her confidence. Dodi Fayed would have offered her a home with his Aries Sun on her IC, but that wouldn’t have worked either.
She seemed destined not to find a committed partner who would suit her Gemini Descendant. Searching but never finding.
