I recently finished watching Marriage Boot camp on WE http://www.wetv.com/shows/marriage-boot-camp , occasionally developing a narcoleptic fit while watching Rachel and Tyson. They seem dead inside she wanted to get married he was dragging his ass after 6 years of dating. Tyson was born under the sun sign of Gemini an air sign associated with Peter Pan and the eternal child. Rachel a lack luster Leo with Sun, Mercury and Jupiter all in the sign of the fixed lion. Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius) don’t like change they cling to what’s familiar. I kept thinking if that’s what love looks like…….PASS.
I was surprised to learn Rachel was a Leo; I have a strong admiration for Leo Ladies and gentleman and have never encountered one as dull. Some famous Leo ladies: Jennifer Lopez, Vivca A Foxx, Coco Chanel, Charlize Theron, Jackie Kennedy, and Halle Berry the list goes on and on.
I ran her and Tyson’s charts I don’t have either birth time so the houses ,overlays and the moon are off.
Rachel actually has a Leo Stellium with her Sun, Mercury and Jupiter all in Leo. (They married during her Jupiter return) I expected her Sun to be afflicted by Saturn considering her hmmm how shall I say this; less than enthusiastic disposition but it isn’t. I find people with planets gathered together in one house (she has 4 together) sometimes make for more conservative types with all that energy focused in one area. Rachel and Tyson also lack a variety of hard aspects. They say pressure makes diamonds ya know. Without hard aspects in the natal chart people can lead a rather straight line in life. Not many challenges, hard aspects (square and opposition) require work, overcoming difficulties, they don’t really have many.
Rachel has Venus planet of love and leisure in comfort seeking Cancer. Ya know the crab holds on tight and doesn’t let go. Venus in Cancer longs for the familiar and what is safe. Her Venus is unaspected and without any major aspects from outer planets a planet operates in purest form. Love of home, familiarity and comfort. Children and having a family are likely important to her. Her Mars (ruler of men the qualities women seek in a partner) is in Gemini Tyson’s sun sign. This can indicate she pursued him, wanted him, and went after him. The Mars of one person on the Sun or Moon in synastry can act as an agent of movement clearly she pushed him into marriage.
The reluctance to marry is immediately spotted in Tyson’s chart when I notice his Venus planet of love, what he seeks in women forms a tight square to Saturn planet of karma, hardship and responsibility. People with Venus in aspect to Saturn or Saturn in the 7th house take marriage seriously. Commitment can give them anxiety, they know marriage is work and enter commitments with a great level of apprehension. His love planet being in Gemini denotes despite taking relationships serious he needs variety in love and a mental connection with Mercury ruling movement and mental stimuli.
Without taking into consideration either of their moon signs I looked at their tightest synastry apsects. Just as independently in their natal charts they have limited hard aspects, combined they have very few hard aspects. Very few squares and oppositions as we can all see this lack of push and pull can make for a very dull relationship. The tightest hard aspect they had is Venus square Saturn. It is Rachel’s Saturn that squares his Venus. She is the mature one; she is here to teach him, that will forever be the role.
This aspect is binding I have said it a dozen times relationships whether they are exciting or ho hum boring cannot survive without Saturn aspects. Saturn rules the legality of marriage and the responsibility of partnership.
They do not have a predominance of one’s outer planets on another’s inner planets
No Neptune no romanticism and fantasy
No Uranus no electric wild ride
No Pluto no turmoil, no growth and upheaval.
It reinforced the quote for me
“you don’t attract what you want you attract what you are”-Dr Wayne Dyer
They independently do not have challenging aspects so I can’t imagine they would feel comfortable in a relationship that continuously challenges them
“Someone’s planet on your planets acts like a permanent transit”
The tightest nicest aspects they have:
Tyson Venus Sextiles Rachel’s sun I love this aspect; friendship, enjoy each other’s company, perhaps similar leisure activities
Tyson’s Mars (planet of sex) sextiles Rachel’s Venus (Feminine Principal) sextiles represent flowing, easy, harmonious energy so this indicates sexual compatibility
Tyson’s Jupiter in Leo Conjoins Rachel’s Sun and Mercury this is an expansive and forgiving quality so Tyson can bring good vibes and broaden Rachel’s Horizons; in her Survivor questioner she calls Tyson her inspiration…it doesn’t get any more Jupiter then that
