With so much of Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber breaking up to make up in the media I had to look at their synastry. When I told my Libra friend I was going to look at their astrology and remarked that I like the two of them together, she asked me why? And quickly added they are like Rihanna and Chris Brown Part Two! I enjoy a young love, here is the thing when you are young you can date someone just because; you don’t have to think about how the rest of your life is going to be, if you like his mother, if his friends like you, do you want children together, does he have a 401k and company stock options. When you are young you simply can date just because, he is cute, she is fun, you like the same music. I enjoy watching young love. Too bad they don’t realize that this is the easiest time in their entire lives it only gets harder with age
So let’s take a quick peek at this apparently on and off again duo.
The beautiful Selena Is a Cancer Sun with an Aries Moon; I have the same combination. We can be emotionally volatile. There is an inner struggle; the cancer sun says I need you, prone to possessiveness, neediness, let’s stay home and nest whereas the Aries moon in emotionally impulsive prone to what my coworkers dubs: The Novella Syndrome Ya know like the Spanish soap operas, yelling and storming out, I love you one minute and I can’t stand you the next. She is stronger then she looks, I would say she is actually the stronger of the pairing.
Justin is a Pisces Sun with a Libra moon. Pisces sun can benefit from a strong partner, look at Rihanna also a Pisces Sun she is attracted to the stronger and more dominant partner, Chris Brown. Pisces Suns are impressionable and can be easily led astray; they can get involved with some unscrupulous people. Guess that explains some of Justin’s recent behavior, hanging around the wrong crowd and I believe allowing less successful entertainers to take advantage of him. He has a Libra Moon he requires partnerships, he is happiest when involved with someone, he seeks cooperation and balance.
Selena and Justin’s Suns their identities are both water based, intuitive, psychic and YES emotional! There Moons however oppose each other her fiery Aries moon the sign of independence, newness and adventure opposes his Libra moon, need for cooperation, harmony and balance.
Not only are there moons in opposition so are there Mercury’s, this is certainly no meeting of the minds here. They may see one another’s point of view but they will never fully understand one another, oppositions in synastry aren’t as difficult as the squares in which one planet struggles for dominance over the other. With oppositions you can see one another but total understanding uh not so much. Add to this the fact they both have Mercury Retrograde in there natal charts. People with Mercury Retrograde in there natal charts often have difficulty expressing themselves, so here we have 2 people with Mercury in 2 opposing signs and they are retrograde. Justin has Mercury is innovative Aquarius, (the lungs are ruled by Mercury, Aquarius rules television and the internet so nice to see how he was discovered) Mercury in Aquarius is prone to thinking they know everything, they think they are smarter then everyone and well Selena has Mercury in Leo, she needs to grand stand and be the star of the show. Perhaps Justin doesn’t permit that because he is too busy being right.
Next up we have Venus the planet of love, how we seek love, express love and wish to enjoy love. Poor Justin has Venus in Pisces he is looking for the merging of souls, love that involves sacrifice, love that is dreamy and all encompassing whereas Selena has Venus in Leo; she is looking for love that is like the movies, dramatic love, passionate love. Leo is rather selfish and all about Leo, wherever Leo is in a chart that planet is prone to being self dominated.
Now let’s look at the aspects
Her Sun in Cancer Squares His moon in Libra; her identity threatens his emotional security and vice versa. They probably struggle to dominate one another.
Mars Square Mars; Mars is the God of War and rules our determination and our sex drive; Selena has Mars in Taurus slow, earthy but VERY stubborn when it comes to change and Justin has Mars in Aquarius; he is a lot more free sexually, has an innovative way of doing things. This indicates a war of the wills, he wants it is his way, she wants it her way and again they fight for dominance. Aquarius and Taurus both being fixed signs indicated they are both FIXED or stuck in their way of doing things.
May I add I’m sure the sex is great with all of this break up to make up and friction makes for some pretty amazing passion. Squares and oppositions= friction friction= passion
Selenas Moon in Aries also Squares Justin’s Uranus very tightly. This indicates instability. Uranus in synastry always indicates instability. Her sun also opposes his Uranus planet of rebellions this is also indicative of sudden break ups to make ups, the fight for dominance also shows with her Mars in Taurus opposing his Pluto in Scorpio. Is she running things or is he running things. Perhaps they are taking turns, something I’m sure she particularly doesn’t care for.
Some interesting House overlays
Each of their Suns fall in the others 8 house; 8th house rules obsessions, sex, the darker side of each other. They probably probe one another psychologically and are able to read one another. Add to this the fact that they are both water signs and naturally intuitive.
Her natal moon falls in his 5th house of love affairs and recreation, I personally like this placement they enjoy one another’s company; they probably dance when they are alone and listen to music. Moon does rules fluctuations so this placement obviously comes with ups and downs. Good luck to both of them may they enjoy it while it lasts.
A quick look at Selena and Justin’s Composite
I have been told you can have amazing synastry but it all comes down to the composite
On a nicer note they have Composite Sun in Taurus forming a sextile to the composite moon in Cancer; Sextiles give a general sense of ease and understanding. There is some debate as to whether the Signs are actually used in composite charts but in any event there is harmony between there wants and their needs. The composite moon also sextiles the composite Venus indicating they enjoy one another’s company; this is a nice aspect that can even indicate they are friends as well as lovers. Hmm and that is where it ends, this is not an easy love with Saturn Squaring Venus planet of love. This over time can indicate at its worst a cold love. You do not want Saturn the planet of restriction in square aspect on the planet of love especially in a composite chart. Also Uranus opposes the composite moon indicating feelings are unstable, on and off again. And may I have a drum roll please, composite Pluto opposes the couples Sun, Mercury and Venus shall I say power struggles galore. This relationship is about power, sex, transformation and destruction with three planets in the composite 8th house. The moon in the 10th is indicative of their emotions out front for the entire world to see. The 10th house rules reputation and honors and in a way how others see you. Mars planet of aggression is in the 7th house, lots of fighting here. And you never really want a 4th house Uranus. The 4th house is the deepest part of a chart; it also represents your home base and your family. You never want the instability of Uranus there. While this couple may at often times be blindly optimistic with Jupiter in the 1st house I am unable to give them my astrological blessing; but really this is what Hollywood couple legends are made of. xo
