With the good news of the newest royal baby on everyone’s mind, baby fever is running rampant. But for astrologers, it means a little bit of extra homework if they want to find out as much as they can about Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s baby before it’s even born. What do we know so far? Not much, but royal die-hards are guessing that the new baby and the queen will have one thing in common: it’s likely that the next royal could arrive during Taurus season.

Queen Elizabeth II was born at 2:40 a.m. on April 21st, 1926. Markle announced her pregnancy over the weekend. Assuming that she waited about 12 weeks to tell everyone—the entire world included—it’s probable that the baby will arrive in the spring. The little one won’t be the only Taurus to enter the royal fray. Prince Louis was born in April of last year, so it looks like the royal family will be getting plenty bullish in 2019.

According to Hello, the queen’s a taurus through-and-through, with an insatiable desire to “consume information” with a “vacuum-cleaner mind; soaking up every subject.” That’s helpful whether the Taurus in question is a current head of state or one that’s in line to be one.

Anwar Hussein/WireImage/Getty notes that the queen has a “surprising” sense of humor that complements her “playful” side, a great temper to all of her determination and willpower. All of this doesn’t mean that the coming royal will be a mini version of Queen Elizabeth II. Astrologers look at more than just the sun sign; just because the stars seem to be aligning for the coming royal doesn’t mean that the sun will be in the same place or that the baby will have the same rising sign as Elizabeth. The moon and the planets all make an impact, too, according to astrologers.

There’s still plenty of time for stargazers to figure things out, but you can bet that as soon as the world knows exactly when Harry and Meghan’s baby arrives, the stars will have a lot to say.
