Whether your heart is
beating for the first time or you are rediscovering an old feeling, the
question is always the same: “Is he the right one for me - the man of my
life?” And the mind flies up in romantic fantasies, whether he is a real
prince or just the boy next door.
However, we often come
to realize that all our love stories have similar features, sometimes the
persons we like look like each other, either physically or in their
personality. There is a sort of Freudian “compulsion to repeat” that,
believe it or not, makes us always fall in love with the same kind of
person, with those same unavoidable troubles and with the same positive
aspects that help us to forgive him/her the most bitter moments of our
relationship in a minute.
the ideal man is essentially indicated by the planet Mars. As Lisa
Morpurgo wrote in her book “The nature of Planets”:
most widespread and folkloristic image of Mars is connected to its seat
in Aries, where brute force appears as completely dissociated from the
reason (…) and supported by a triumphant solarity (…). Here, the image
of the homo non-sapiens is fully expressed, he who keeps governing the
world by frenziedly piling up more phallus-missiles than would suffice to
destroy the Earth five times.”
But this should not
induce one to think that the sign where we have Mars should correspond to
the birth sign of our twin soul. On the contrary, it more often indicates
that we will find partners of the opposite birth sign, which shows how
oppositions between his Sun sign and her Mars provide an extremely strong
basis for sex appeal.
Again, we may also find
a square between her Mars and his Sun, even though in this case the
relationship, while not being necessarily weaker, will involve more
But let’s have a look
at a few famous couples.
CRUISE & PENELOPE CRUZ
the failure of his previous marriage with Nicole Kidman, the tabloids have
extensively covered the new romance between the actor and the beautiful
actress Penelope Cruz, also lingering on a certain degree of rivalry
between the two women, and not only because they were fighting over
Penelope is a Taurus
with Mars in Cancer, conjunct Saturn. Her ideal man should be sweet,
sensitive, romantic, but also capable of being firm and reliable (conjunction
with Saturn). This is why we are not surprised by the fact that Penelope
was immediately attracted precisely by the Cancer Tom Cruise, who also has
Mercury in the fourth sign of the Zodiac. Moreover, the Great Trine formed
by Tom’s Sun with Neptune in Scorpio
and Jupiter in Pisces remarkably emphasizes the romantic and sweet
attitudes that Penelope enjoys very much.
And as far as Nicole
Kidman is concerned, her Mars is in Libra, a square sign to Tom’s solar
sign, Cancer, which indicates that, in spite of the strong tie that kept
them united for long years, their relationship was doomed to end in a
rather stormy manner, with the addition of nasty comments uttered uniquely
to hurt the former partner, like Kidman’s famous “Now I will be
wearing heel shoes again!” just to recall her ex-husband’s scarce
ANTONIO BANDERAS & MELANIE GRIFFITH
The love story between
Melanie and Antonio has been depicted as the magic encounter with prince
charming come true: a look was enough to have both madly falling in love
with each other up to the point of challenging their existing love
relationships, that had apparently been consolidated until that moment.
Melanie’s Mars is in
Leo, which is also her and Antonio’s birth sign, while her Mars conjunct
Pluto talks of a capacity for overwhelming passion. Melanie is able to tie
her man to herseělf with the necessary eclecticism that will make every
day spent together always exciting and different from the others. Together
with Pluto, her Mars is in the Fifth house, which cannot but reinforce the
leonine symbolism of her sign, while her Sun in the Fourth House
highlights that Melanie’s passion can be really fulfilled only by giving
a fine family to her man.
DEMI MOORE & ASHTON KUTCHER
Hollywood is in
fibrillation for the new affair just started between Demi and the actor
Ashton Kutcher, 15 years younger than her.
Scorpio Demi has a triple conjunction – Sun, Venus and Neptune - in her
birth sign, with a very romantic nature (Venus-Neptune conjunction) that,
sooner or later, has to come to terms with reality though, as happened to
her with her previous marriage with actor Bruce Willis. Demi’s Mars is
in Leo, thus making her particularly sensitive to the image of a strong,
passionate man, perhaps a bit “macho”, but certainly capable of being
a good father in a family.
Kutcher, in its turn, was born with a Sun-Venus-Moon conjunction in
Aquarius, which is the perfectly opposite sign to Demi’s Mars in Leo.
Just as usual for those with such a conjunction, Ashton is a charming but
very sensitive man, even though the square between the Sun and Uranus in
Scorpio casts a disquieting shadow on the possibility for him to keep
long-lasting relationships going, and rather reinforces the Aquarian
qualities of the actor who actually loves his own independence above all.
Looking at Demi’s
previous relationship with Willis, we can note once again that, in spite
of the actor’s birth Sun being in Pisces, Demi was attracted by a
decisively Aquarian personality, as Bruce has the Moon, Chiron, Venus and
Mercury in this sign!
