Commitment-Phobic Men

Ever dated a guy who had the habit of always disappearing? Your texts go unanswered, your calls are ignored, leaving you wondering “What did I do?” As soon as you’ve given up on him, he suddenly calls you, acting like nothing is wrong. WTF?!


There are several astrological placements and aspects which relate to this kind of behavior. Let’s take a look at some…

Planets in Aquarius:


Aquarius is the natural ruler of the 11th house, and is ruled by the planet Uranus. The characteristics of Aquarius are: unpredictability, instability, and freedom-loving. As such, people with planets in Aquarius tend to display these characteristics towards their mates, especially if the Sun, Moon, and/or Venus is in Aquarius. Aquarian men need tons of space and freedom, and feel “trapped” if they feel tied down. This is why this sign is known for commitment-phobia. Aquarius is also the rebel, so anything “traditional” when it comes to relationships just won’t do. Indeed, non-traditional relationships, such as long-distance relationships, work best for these guys.


Aquarius men are often stuck in their own worlds. They are constantly thinking and processing information, so it’s easy for them to forget to call or write. Also, Aquarius men shun neediness and clingy-ness, so if their partner shows major signs of co-dependency, they will distance themselves from the relationship. Aquas are also very independent, and need space to do their own thing. In addition, Aquarius people tend to see everyone as equals; they’re just as likely to help a stranger as they are likely to help a long-time friend. Because of this, they are less likely to give anyone “special treatment.”  Finally, Aquas are known for their emotional detachment. They are often oblivious to the feelings of others, so he might find it difficult to understand that you have needs.


Aquarius men work best with partners who also have their own lives. If you’re in a relationship with an Aquarius person, don’t give up your life for him. Waiting by the phone for him to call, or nagging him constantly will get you nowhere in this relationship.


If an Aqua ignores you, ignore him back. Don’t be afraid to do this. You may think that by ignoring him, you’re pushing him away, but it’s actually quite the opposite: ignoring him will get his attention. There’s nothing more appealing to an Aqua man than an independent woman who has her own life and doesn’t necessarily need him.


Since Aquas are emotionally detached, gentle reminders to call you back or simply letting him know that you don’t appreciate his behavior can be beneficial. It’s important not to nag him about it; just gently express your feelings. Aquas don’t respond well to emotional scenes, so try to keep the conversation rational, as it will appeal to his intellect.


Prominent Uranus Aspects and Placements:

Prominent Uranus aspects include hard aspects to one’s Sun, Moon, Venus, Ascendant/Descendant axis, or Uranus in the fifth or seventh house.


People with prominent Uranus placements tend to have Aquarian traits, as Uranus is the ruler of Aquarius. People with prominent Uranus in their charts are independent, freedom-loving folk who hate to be tied down.


Like Aquarius folk, they have a tremendous need for space and independence, so relationships can be tricky for them. Relationships usually start and end quickly for Uranian people. They are attracted to the “newness” of relationships, which is hard to maintain in the long run. Their relationships are marked by an on-off energy; when their partners get too close, the Uranian person distances himself, but when the partner is nowhere to be found, the Uranian person gains interest again. Instability and unpredictability are the hallmarks of Uranian relationships. These people tend to also be attracted to non-traditional relationships (i.e. long-distance), and are attracted to non-traditional partners (i.e. people from different localities, backgrounds, cultures, etc.).


So, how do you deal with a Uranian man, when it comes to relationships? Again, having your own life and giving him plenty of space is key to making this work. People with prominent Uranus in their charts tend to do well with other Uranian people; they each give each other plenty of space and understand each other’s need for freedom.


Kim and Kanye Synastry

Check out my new and improved site for more celebrity astrology!


The world was shocked at the announcement that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are in a relationship. I, like many of my peers, dismissed the union as a publicity stunt. However, looking at their synastry, it seems there is more than meets the eye with this pair. Let’s take a look at their synastry…


Kanye’s Gemini Sun and Jupiter conjunct Kim’s Descendant. This, in itself, is one of the most powerful synastry aspects, and is often found in the synastry charts of married couples. Kanye encapsulates what Kim looks for in a mate. As a Sagittiarus Ascendant, Kim is attracted to men with Geminian qualities such as intellectual curiosity and a love of variety. Kanye’s Jupiter infuses her with optimism and prosperity through their union.


Kanye’s Neptune in Sagittarius conjuncts Kim’s Ascendant/Venus conjunction almost exactly. This is another great, and very strong, aspect. In Kanye, Kim sees her soul mate, and tends to overlook his flaws. Kim must take care that she is seeing Kanye for who he is, rather than what she believes him to be.


Kim’s Mars is conjunct Kanye’s Ascendant. In a woman’s chart, her Mars sign reveals what kind of man she is attracted to and what turns her on. With this combination, Kanye’s physical appearance encapsulates Kim’s idea of her “ideal man”.


Kanye’s Sun/Jupiter conjunction opposes Kim’s Venus/Neptune conjunction. Oppositions are powerful aspects in synastry, particularly when they fall along one of the person’s Ascendant/Descendant axis. Kanye’s Sun in opposition to Kim’s Venus is a binding aspect for both parties. Kim adores Kanye, and Kanye finds Kim beautiful and charming. They enjoy socializing and attending parties together.


Kim’s Neptune opposes Kanye’s Sun, so again, we see idealization, this time on the part of Kanye. Once again, Kanye must be careful he is seeing Kim for who she really is, rather than what he believes her to be.


Kanye’s Jupiter opposing Kim’s Venus is a benevolent aspect. Kim gives Kanye the benefit of the doubt and is easy to forgive, while Kanye spoils Kim with gifts and pleasures.


Kanye’s Saturn trines Kim’s Venus, which is a stabilizing aspect. They find it easy to settle into a committed relationship with each other. They are less inclined to feel burdened by this relationship; they feel comfortable in their commitment to each other. This sentiment is reinforced by Kim’s Saturn in trine aspect to Kanye’s Sun. These harmonious Saturn aspects promote longevity and responsibility to each other.


Kanye’s Saturn also conjuncts Kim’s Moon. Again, this is a very stabilizing, binding aspect. Thankfully, this conjunction is not afflicted by other planets. This is an indication of a serious relationship. On the down side, Kim may find Kanye a bit serious or harsh, and may be afraid to express her feelings out of fear of Kanye’s disapproval. Over time, this can lead to emotional distancing due to a feeling of being misunderstood by the Saturn person. Thankfully, these two have “lighter” aspects to even things out.


Kanye’s Venus and Mars oppose Kim’s Sun. This indicates a considerable physical and sexual attraction on Kanye’s part. Kim encapsulates what Kanye finds beautiful and sexy. Kanye’s Mars in opposition to Kim’s Sun can lead to heated conflicts. Kanye’s Venus and Mars are situated in Kim’s fifth house of love, romance, and children (!). Kanye stimulates Kim’s desire for fun and romance, as well as procreation.


Kim’s Venus falls in Kanye’s 4th house, which serves to stimulate Kanye’s love of home. Kanye loves spending time at home with Kim; with Kim, Kanye feels comfortable, nurtured, and cared for.


Another powerful aspect these two share is Kanye’s North Node conjunct Kim’s Sun, Pluto, Mercury, and Jupiter! Wow! The North Node represents “where we’re going” in this lifetime, while the South Node represents “where we’ve been”. With Kim, Kanye feels like he is “going somewhere”. Kanye feels a powerful pull towards Kim, which can be exciting, but scary, at the same time! Kim pulls Kanye out of his comfort zone. He grows a lot through this relationship, especially through the lens of personal growth (Sun), transformation and sex (Pluto), intellectual communication (Mercury), and beliefs (Jupiter). However, Kim’s North Node is unaspected (by conjunction or opposition) to Kanye’s planets, so it is Kanye that will benefit most from this union, in terms of his personal growth.


My prediction: Kim and Kanye have surprisingly wonderful synastry! They have many “soul mate” aspects, and I can see this relationship lasting a long time. Two problems: Kanye’s own chart features a Uranus-Venus opposition, which can indicate a fear of commitment and “settling down”. He is also a Gemini Sun, which adds to his need to “move around” and not be tied down. Indeed, Geminis tend to bore easily!


The second problem I see is the amount of *unilateral* nodal connections between Kanye’s North Node and Kim’s Libra Stellium. Depending on Kanye’s stage in life, he might not be ready to embrace his North Node at the present time. His North Node is in Libra, and his South Node is in Aries. His Aries South Node implies that he is preoccupied with himself and his independence. For Kanye, it is always about HIM. Perhaps Kim threatens his sense of independence by stimulating his desire for partnership. Kim might feel like she’s constantly “giving” in the relationship, which can be draining.


Interestingly enough, it looks like Kim and Kanye got together right when transiting Saturn was on his North Node, and on her Libra Stellium.


I think Saturn’s trek through Scorpio, beginning on October 5th, will be trying for the couple. Saturn will conjunct Kanye’s natal Uranus and oppose his Venus/Mars/Chiron stellium in Taurus near the end of the year, so he may feel the need to break free from Kim. Alternatively, the transit may “mute” these energies and compel him to settle down. Either way, Kim and Kanye are in for some changes, and soon!

Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis- What happened?

Check out my new and improved site for more celebrity astrology!


Earlier this year, we found out that Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis were splitsville. The reason? Apparently, Johnny was bored stiff and wanted his freedom. Other sources say he was having an affair. What do the stars say about their split?


Johnny and Vanessa had very interesting synastry. He’s a Gemini, and she’s a Capricorn. The fact that he was “bored” does not surprise me right off the bat. Geminis need to move around, communicate, and get bored at the drop of a hat. Geminis aren’t usually fond of long-term commitments for this reason. Capricorns, on the other hand, are very steady, stable people. Repetition and boredom do not bother them as much as other signs. Earth signs seek security in their relationships, while Geminis need intellectual stimulation and freedom.


Thankfully, Vanessa has tons of planets in Sagittarius, which would definitely smooth out Capricorn’s hard edges! Geminis and Sagittarians get along famously; their signs are opposite, but complementary.


So, how did this Capricorn get a freedom-loving Gemini to commit? Her Saturn is conjunct his Sun. Vanessa stabilized Johnny and stimulated his desire to settle down. She kept him grounded. At the same time, Johnny may have felt restricted by Vanessa. Perhaps he felt that she was overbearing or critical of him, which may have left him feeling discouraged and stifled. This would be especially difficult for a Gemini to handle. Regardless, Sun-Saturn connections in synastry are very common in the synastry charts of marriage partners.


Johnny’s Neptune is conjunct Vanessa’s Ascendant. To Johnny, Vanessa is his “dream girl”. He easily trusts and forgives Vanessa, and she does the same. This aspects lends itself to over-idealization of each other and glossing over each other’s faults.


Vanessa’s Sun is conjunct Johnny’s Vertex. In addition, her anti-vertex is conjunct his Vertex, and vice-versa! This indicates the union was fated. The Vertex is a calculated point, and is often referred to as the “second Descendant”. When someone’s Vertex is aspected in synastry, it indicates the two people were meant to come together for a purpose. Johnny’s Vertex is in his 5th house, so perhaps the couple was fated to have children together. Vanessa’s Vertex is in the 8th house, so she was meant to explore herself psychologically and sexually through their union.


Johnny’s Sun, Mercury and Venus are situated in Vanessa’s 7th house. This is an indicator of a strong mutual attraction between the two. Johnny is Vanessa’s idea of the perfect man, and Johnny finds Vanessa beautiful. Johnny stimulates Vanessa’s desire to settle down.


Vanessa’s Mars, Venus, Neptune, and Mercury are situated in Johnny’s 4th house. She stimulated Johnny’s desire to build a home and family together. In fact, this aspect indicates the couple spent a lot of time at home. They moved to a relatively remote area of France together, where they lived for many years. Vanessa’s Moon is located in Johnny’s 12th house, which may have been why they moved so far away to be with one another; perhaps Johnny wanted to keep her and the family “hidden”.


Johnny and Vanessa share a mutual Moon conjunct North Node aspect in synastry! Wow! They are naturally protective of one another. They each possess qualities the other needs to develop in order to grow. The bond was instant, and they both felt they were “going somewhere” with one another. North Node aspects can be tricky, though. Over time, the constant nurturing and giving in the relationship can become draining. I’ve read that when a synastry chart features North Node connections, but no South Node connections, the relationship is not meant to last. Instead, the relationship seeds are planted in this life, and the two will reunite in their next life to continue the relationship.


One of the most troubling aspects between Johnny and Vanessa involves the Planet Uranus. Johnny’s Uranus is conjunct his Mars in the first, indicating he is freedom-loving and independent, and may be prone to sudden, impulsive behaviors.  This conjunction squares Vanessa’s Venus/Neptune conjunction. Vanessa probably found Johnny very exciting, eccentric, and attractive, but at the same time, unstable, unpredictable, and inconstant. This aspect does not favor stability in a relationship. Johnny may have felt his individuality and independence were stifled by Vanessa, so the relationship may have made him feel trapped. This aspect is a classic divorce indicator in a couple’s synastry chart, and can certainly indicate infidelity.


So, there’s their synastry. Very powerful synastry, indeed. But why did Johnny end things this year, after over a decade of marriage?


Rumor has it, the couple has been having problems for years. Indeed, transiting Neptune was squaring Johnny’s Venus until last year. This transit often indicates disillusionment when it comes to how one perceives his or her relationship, as well as deceit. Also, Uranus has been opposing Johnny’s progressed Mars, which is a transit that stimulates a person’s desire for freedom, and may manifest through acting out or rebelling.


Neptune was transiting Johnny’s 7th house for the majority of the time they were married, which makes sense given the strong Neptunian aspects in their synastry chart. Around the time of the divorce, transiting Neptune was opposite Johnny’s natal Uranus in the first. During this time, the desire to make a change and to do something “out of character” is stimulated. This transit often indicates misunderstandings, feelings of uncertainty, and even deceit. Since this transit affected his 1st/7th house axis, the change came in the form of breaking up his relationship with Vanessa.


Around the time of their divorce, transiting Jupiter  in his 10th house was squaring his natal Uranus, which stimulated his desire for freedom even further. Jupiter “expanded” his need for freedom (Uranus), which played out in a very public way (10th house)


Moreover, transiting Saturn was squaring Johnny’s Venus all year. This is a classic break-up transit. During this transit, we take a long, hard look at our relationships and decide what’s working for us, and what is not. Johnny and Vanessa’s synastry featured plenty of Neptune, and Johnny has been experiencing Neptune in his love sector for quite some time. When Saturn came along, Johnny was shaken out of any disillusionment he was holding on to, and was forced to re-evaluate his relationship with Vanessa, and he ultimately decided to end things.

Fertility Transits

Check out my new and improved site for more  astrology!

Looking to get pregnant? Looking NOT to get pregnant? Find out which natal placements and transits increase your chances of conceiving!

Does fertility show in the natal chart?

Yes, it does!

The 5th house is generally considered the house of procreation and childbirth. If you have planets in your natal 5th house, fertility is favored. This is especially true if Venus, Jupiter and/or the Moon are in this house. Jupiter is the planet of abundance, so if you have this natal chart placement, you might have lots of children! Venus in the 5th indicates you will have children, and they will most likely be daughters. The Moon, the sign of the womb and the mother, indicates you have strong maternal instinct, and childrearing is favored.

The number of planets in your 5th house sometimes indicates how many children you will have. As I mentioned before, Venus in the 5th can represent daughters. The same goes for the Moon, and other feminine planets. Mars, and other masculine planets, in the 5th can indicate sons. The nature of the planet often indicates the qualities the children may possess. For example, if you have Venus and Pluto in your fifth, one of your children may have Libran or Taurus (Venus) placements, while the other may have Scorpio (Pluto) placements.

Some people believe that if Saturn is in your 5th house, you will not have children, or you are infertile. That is not necessarily true. Saturn may cause a delay in childbirth (i.e. you won’t have children until later in your life). Saturn in this house may indicate a fear of having children, as well. Either way, this aspect does not necessarily mean you’re not meant to have children.

If you have Cancer on the cusp of your 5th house, fertility is indicated. Cancer is the sign of the mother, as well as fertility, so having it on the cusp of your 5th house of children increases your fertility.

The ruler of your 5th is also important. Look for harmonious aspects from your 5th house ruler to your natal planets, especially Jupiter, Venus, or the Moon.

Finally, the asteroid Ceres is said to represent fertility. How is Ceres aspected and placed in your chart? Ceres in the fourth or the fifth is an excellent indication of fertility, as is Ceres in aspect to the Moon, Venus, or Jupiter.

Planets transiting your 5th house

Jupiter transiting your 5th house

The 5th house is the house of children and procreation, while Jupiter is the planet of expansion and good luck. Put these two together, and you’ve gone one fertile transit! Many women find they get pregnant during this time. If inner planets (such as the Sun, Moon, Venus or Mars) are transiting the fifth house at the same time, your chances for conceiving are greatly improved.

Saturn transiting your 5th house

Saturn symbolizes restriction, which indicates that women may have a more difficult time conceiving when Saturn is transiting the 5th house. On the other hand, Saturn represents increased responsibility, so giving birth can definitely be indicated with this placement! This transit can sometimes indicate a difficult childbirth. My mother gave birth to me when transiting Saturn and transiting Sun were conjunct her natal Sun in the 5th (yes, she had me on her birthday). I was born with a heart condition, which I didn’t recover from until I was about 3 years old.

Uranus transiting your 5th house

Uranus is the planet of unpredictability, so in the fifth house, this can sometimes indicate unplanned pregnancies. If you’re not looking to get pregnant, and you’re having this transit, take extra care to protect yourself! Conception is further indicated if transiting Uranus aspects your natal Moon and/or ruler of your 4th or 5th houses when it is transiting your fifth house.

Pluto transiting your 5th house

Pluto is the planet of transformation, as well as death and rebirth. When Pluto transits this house, conception can be indicated. In fact, during this time, you may become obsessed with the idea of having a child! Conception is further indicated if transiting Pluto aspects your natal Moon and/or ruler of your 4th or 5th houses when it is transiting your fifth house.

Transits to your 5th house Ruler

When your fifth house ruler is transited by a planet, especially Jupiter, your chances of conception increase. This is especially true if the ruler of your 5th house is in harmonious aspect with your Moon.

Transits to natal Ceres

As mentioned before, Ceres is the planet of fertility. When it is aspected by a transiting planet, your chances of conception increase. This is especially true if your natal Ceres is in aspect to your natal Moon, or is posited in your 4th or 5th houses, or is in the sign Cancer.

Astrology of the Vice-Presidential Debate

Check out my new and improved site for more political astrology!


This presidential election campaign has been fascinating to watch as an astrologer. After looking at the transits of all four candidates (Obama, Romney, Biden, and Ryan), it has become clear to me that this presidential race is a battle between Saturn and Neptune. Both Obama and Biden are experiencing heavy Saturn transits at this time, while Romney and Ryan are experiencing intense Neptune aspects at this time. Keeping this in mind, watching the news has become even more entertaining! Romney and Ryan are constantly being attacked for making dishonest claims and coming up short on details, while Obama has been slandered for his terrible performance in Wednesday’s debate, in which he appeared to be somber, uninterested, and dull. Both Romney and Ryan are experiencing Neptune square Ascendant transits, while Obama is experiencing a Saturn square Mercury transit. We have yet to see Biden in debate action, but Saturn will be transiting opposite his natal Moon at the time of the debate.


Here are some more details on Biden’s and Ryan’s transit for the day of the debate.


Joe Biden’s Transits for Oct. 11/2012


Mars will be conjunct Biden’s Sagittarius Ascendant. It is probably not very surprising to people that Joe has a Sag Ascendant. He is known for putting his foot in his mouth, which is a classic Sagittarian trait. With Mars conjunct this point, he will have to be extra careful about what he says and how he says it! Not to mention, Mars will be opposite his natal Uranus, which puts him at increased risk for making a blunder. This transit will also increase Biden’s aggressiveness and assertiveness, in regards to the way he presents himself.


Transiting Saturn will be exactly opposite Biden’s Moon in Taurus. This transit indicates a time in which your personal needs and your public responsibilities are at odds with one another. This is a time when you feel isolated from your loved ones, and increases your sense of loneliness. During this transit, the person generally feels burdened by external incidents. Hopefully, he will be able to use this energy to focus on his task and work hard to ensure he does a good job.


Transiting Venus will be square Biden’s Saturn, increasing his sense of loneliness, while at the same time, increasing his awareness of his responsibilities. Saturn transits can be helpful, as they help us focus and work hard. However, Saturn also makes us feel drained, unloved, underappreciated, and tends to do a number on our self-confidence. Hopefully Biden will embrace the positive aspects of this transit and will be able to pull through for his party.


Transits for Paul Ryan on Oct 11/2012


Incidentally, Paul Ryan also has his Ascendant in Sagittarius, at practically the same degree as Joe Biden! As such, Mars will also be transiting Ryan’s Ascendant! Again, his aggressiveness and assertiveness increase under this transit.


Like his running mate Mitt Romney, Ryan is experiencing several Neptune transits at the moment. In fact, transiting Neptune will be square his natal Neptune the day of the debate. This transit will be “set off” the day of the election with Transiting Mars conjunct his natal Neptune.


Neptune will also be square his natal Ascendant. Ironically enough, Romney has the same transit going on at this time! Romney’s Ascendant in Gemini is exactly opposite Ryan’s Ascendant in Sagittarius. This is a powerful link between the two. Interestingly enough, Romney’s Neptune square Ascendant was “set off” by transiting Sun conjunct his natal Neptune on the day of the last debate, and now Ryan’s Neptune square Ascendant transit is being set off by transiting Mars conjunct his Neptune/Ascendant conjunction on the day of his debate!


Anyway, transiting Neptune in square aspect to Ryan’s Ascendant/Neptune conjunction the day of the election will alter the way Ryan presents himself and his ideas. He may appear insincere and vague. This transit increases the likelihood of being deceptive or being deceived. A lack of clarity in the way one expresses themselves, as well as a tendency to bend the truth, tends to result from this transit.


It will be very interesting to see how this transit affects Ryan, especially since we saw how the Neptune square Ascendant transit affected Romney during the last debate. Given this transit, Biden should capitalize on any vague ideas or dishonesty Ryan may put forth during the debate, like Obama should have!


Transiting Mercury will be opposite Ryan’s Saturn the day of the debate. Traditionally, this transit is associated with communication challenges, including forgetting details, negative thinking, and getting criticism from others. Under this transit, we are likely to second-guess ourselves. On the plus side, this is a good day for serious, no-nonsense discussions. Also, Ryan’s Mercury is in Capricorn, so perhaps he will feel comfortable with the Saturn energy.


Transiting Sun will be square his natal Mercury. This transit affects our communication skills by making us eager to get our points across. Ryan will be mentally active, but may lack tact. Conflicts often ensue during this transit.
