Huw Edwards Horoscope

Huw Edwards Astrology Chart

Huw Edwards is a Welsh journalist who works for the BBC. As the presenter of their flagship news broadcast, the News at Ten, he is a household name in the UK and earns a six-figure salary. The Huw Edwards horoscope explains why he is famous and successful but also has tremendous inner tension that can have unexpected consequences.

Huw Edwards Horoscope

The Huw Edwards astrology chart is rated X because his time of birth is unknown. But from his Wikipedia page, he was born on August 18 1961 in Bridgend, Glamorgan, Wales.[1] The Huw Edwards astrology chart I have used below is for noon.

Much information is missing in this interpretation without using the Moon, Ascendant and Midheaven. The orbs for the aspects and fixed stars listed are the greatest possible over the 24 hours of August 18, 1961, in Bridgend, Wales. Some will be stronger, and some will be missing. But at least I can say Huw Edwards has all of these stars and aspects mentioned below in his chart.

The most striking feature in the Huw Edwards astrology chart is the stellium (conjunction of planets) of the Sun, Mercury, Uranus and North Node in late Leo. Mars trine Jupiter explains his success and fame, but I will focus on the stellium because it is so prominent and current transits are triggering it.

Sun conjunct Mercury (4°26′) gives an active and curious mind that seeks news and information. So it is perfect for a journalist and news presenter. It makes Huw Edwards a great communicator, enabling him to convey messages or concepts with flair. Others enjoy listening to and watching him talk because he uses gestures and facial expressions to help get the message across.

This aspect gives a talent for public speaking, with a chameleon-like ability to choose a particular persona depending on the situation. However, a tendency to become easily distracted when listening to others makes Huw a better talker than a listener. He may also have to contend with nervous ailments or an inability to relax.

Sun conjunct Uranus (1°17′) enhances Huw Edwards’ self-awareness and gives a unique self-expression style. It also causes sudden changes in life, erratic behavior and peculiar interests. It makes him a maverick who dislikes conforming to traditional or societal standards.

How this conjunction manifests varies greatly depending on other aspects and fixed star alignments. It can make people visionary, enlightening, revolutionary, shocking or crazy. This aspect is also associated with psychic ability, nervous anxiety and accidents.

Mercury conjunct Uranus (4°03′) makes Huw Edwards an eccentric genius and enhances his uniqueness. It gives an insatiable need for stimulation and excitement but also the potential for boredom once the fascination with something new has worn off.

This stellium of Sun, Mercury and Uranus gives an original and unorthodox nature with thoughts, ideas and behaviors that are unusual, futuristic or kinky. It should give an acute intuition and psychic ability but also an abrupt or impersonal nature with changeable points of view and a tendency to jump to conclusions. Impatience, nervous irritability, neurotic behavior and the risk of mental breakdowns are also possible.

The Heart of the Snake

As the image below shows, the stellium in the Huw Edwards horoscope sits within the Leo constellation. But more tightly aligns with the fixed star Alphard in the constellation Hydra, the Water Snake.

Although Mercury is conjunct fixed star Regulus, it is also close to Alphard (1°29′ to 3°26′). It would be within the 2°20′ orb of Alphard if Huw were born in the morning. Even if it is over the suggested maximum orb, the amplifying effect of the Sun and Uranus on this star would still make it relevant.

Fixed star Alphard conjunct Sun (1°57′), Uranus (0°40′) and North Node (0°28′): Alphard gives wisdom, musical and artistic appreciation, knowledge of human nature, strong passions, lack of self-control, immorality, revolting deeds, and sudden death by drowning, poison or asphyxiation.

Particularly matters connected with ‘poison’ are accentuated badly, e.g., blood poisoning, murder by poison, attempts of poisoning, poisoned hatred in women, gas poisoning, danger to life by the inappropriate use of drugs and overindulgence of good living. A ‘poisoning’ is also possible in a marriage relationship between a man and a woman. This is especially true in a male chart.

Alphard in the neck of the Water Snake is like Saturn and Venus (slovenly, very immoral, shameless, revolting, mean, sorrows in love.)

With Sun: Power and authority but suffering through own acts and from enemies, loss of position and honor, overcome by enemies.

With Mercury: Trouble through writings, unfavorable for marriage, suffering through a passionate attachment that entirely changes the course of the life.

With Uranus: Disgrace, especially through love affairs, evil habits, unbalanced mind, a tendency to great crime, bad for gain and marriage, downfall through love disappointment.

Constellation Hydra, the Female Water Snake, is said to give an emotional and passionate nature, threatened by great troubles, and to cause some interest in shipping.

Repression or Free Self-Expression

Sun quincunx Saturn (1°16′) creates an imbalance between free self-expression and a heavy sense of responsibility. Continually struggling to fulfill his needs without neglecting his obligations can lead to great inner tension. If the balance tips too far in one direction, a crisis involving Huw’s self-confidence, physical or mental health, career, or a significant relationship can develop.

Huw Edwards is generally self-reliant and reserved but can swing between sober maturity and reckless disregard. By placing too much emphasis on his own needs and desires, he tends to neglect himself in other ways. Being free to enjoy himself means something else has to suffer, including his career, partner, kids, or self-worth.

Huw may have numerous casual and serious relationships of varying lengths and intensity over his life, some of which may overlap. Alcoholism, drug addiction, and other destructive behaviors are possible. Low self-esteem and self-respect, and even self-loathing, are possible with mental illness and self-destructive behaviors. Huw Edwards has stated that he has had bouts of depression since 2002.[2]

Saturn quincunx Uranus (1°39′) increases the tension between freedom and restriction. Nervous tension from the Sun, Mercury, and Uranus stellium makes this aspect is more severe and may cause muscle spasms and other nervous conditions.

Huw may feel like he has to keep everything under tight control, afraid that if he relaxes and lets it go, everything will fall apart. Trying to repress feelings and desires for freedom would only escalate this nervous anxiety towards a tipping point that could be self-destructive or damaging to others in extreme cases.

Saturn conjunct fixed star Terebellum (0°51′) gives fortune but with regret and disgrace, cunning, a mercenary nature and repulsiveness. Terebellum on the rump of the Archer is like Venus and Saturn, so it also gives bad morals, perverted tastes, misfortune in love affairs, and seduction.


The stellium of the Sun, Mercury, Uranus and North Node gives Huw Edward a highly charged need to express himself unorthodoxly to gain excitement and stimulation. Fixed star Alphard intensifies his passions and suggests a lack of self-control and questionable morals.

The Sun and Uranus quincunx Saturn creates a continual buildup of inner tension as his need for free self-expression conflicts with a need for restraint.

Full self-expression could lead to disgrace. Complete repression could lead to a mental breakdown. Balancing his outward sober maturity with his inner peculiarities is a most challenging task and brings the risk of unexpected and upsetting consequences.
