Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, or Brangelina as the media likes to refer to them, are the ultimate celebrity couple and arguably one of the best-looking couples in showbiz. No surprise then that a possible wedding this summer 2012 is major news.
In the press recently, it stated that Angelina has turned to a Buddhist astrologer to predict a favourable date for the wedding. Not knowing quite what a Buddhist astrologer does, here’s my astrological low-down on the Brangelina brand and the dates that this astrologer would choose for their big day.
Angelina Jolie is a Gemini (b. June 4 1975) and Brad Pitt is a Sagittarius (b. Dec 18 1963), and the combination of their Sun signs is a classic case of opposites attract. I’ve called them Gemini lovers because Angelina’s Sun at 13:25 Gemini is conjunct Brad’s Descendant (relationship point) at 11:54 Gemini. This summer is Gemini’s summer with eclipses in Gemini/Sagittarius, Venus in Gemini and Jupiter in Gemini. So no wonder these two are hot gossip and raring to get married.
Angelina has her Sun in Gemini opposite Neptune, the planet of romance, glamour and film. Here’s the actress who plays out her fantasy life via her movie roles. This aspect can also create an unrealistic view of relationships, a tendency to idealise love and find true love elusive. Angelina’s been married twice before but her Neptune at 10:20 Sagittarius is conjunct Brad’s Ascendant at 11:54 Sagittarius, so perhaps this defines Brad as her ‘ideal’ man.
Brad Pitt is a double Sagittarius with both Sun and Ascendant in the sign of Sagittarius, the traveller & philosopher. This makes Brad’s ruling planet Jupiter and his Jupiter in Aries is a risk-taker, someone who has a strong vision for his personal life goals. Jupiter’s passionate about global concerns and in Aries suggests a pushy and driven personality, a man who likes to get what he wants.
However, Angelina Jolie has her ruling planet in Aries too, so she’s no pushover, but with a Cancer Ascendant her ruling planet is the Moon. Here’s her love of her family and with the Moon in Aries conjunct passionate Mars and expansive Jupiter, she’s one hot Momma who adores her global tribe.
Jupiter is closely conjunct the Midheaven, the pinnacle of her chart, so her family and her passion for world and charitable concerns are her vocation in life. Jupiter conjunct the Midheaven is a lucky symbol, attracting good fortune to her. Her softer side is shown by Venus at 28:09 Cancer closely conjunct her Ascendant at 28:54 Cancer and confirms her love (Venus) of her family (Cancer).
Brad fits beautifully the symbolism of Angelina’s partner planet. He may be a double Sagittarius but he has a stellium of planets in sensible, dignified Capricorn. Capricorn is the sign on Angelina’s Descendant so Saturn is her partner planet, the ruler of Capricorn, which is tucked away in her chart in the 12th house, again in Cancer.
This fits the older man (Brad is 12 years her senior), dignified and respectful, someone who appreciates privacy and lives for his family: they have six children, 3 adopted and 3 of their own. Note that Brad’s ruling planet Jupiter is in the 4th house so this reiterates their shared love of home and family.
With his Gemini Descendant, Brad’s partner planet is Mercury in Capricorn on the 2nd cusp and even though Angelina is stunningly beautiful, you get the impression that’s not important to her. She’s obviously intelligent and seems more interested in worldly concerns, such as humanitarian and political causes which fits the planet of communication Mercury in business-oriented Capricorn. Mercury on the 2nd cusp ruling money also suggests a partner who’s financially savvy.
The astrology shows that theirs is not only a loving relationship but a competitive and passionate relationship too. This is partly due to their ruling planets in Aries but in addition Angelina’s Mars at 10:42 Aries is almost exactly square Brad’s Mars at 10:02 Capricorn. This is bound to create conflict but is hot and sexy for sure.
So what about marriage and what dates will the Buddhist astrologer have suggested to Angelina if Brangelina are to marry this summer? Here are my suggested dates for their forthcoming nuptials including the relevant astrology:
Friday 13th July 2012 – Venus conjunct Brad’s Descendant; Moon Taurus
Monday 16th July 2012 – Venus conjunct Angelina’s Sun; Moon Gemini
Thursday 9th August 2012 – Venus trine Neptune; Moon Taurus
Saturday 11th August 2012 – Jupiter conjunct Brad’s Descendant; Moon Gemini
Tuesday 21st August 2012 – Jupiter conjunct Angelina’s Sun; Moon Libra
Saturday 25th August 2012 – Venus conjunct Angelina’s Saturn (partner planet); Moon Sagittarius
Wednesday 5th September 2012 – Venus return/Venus conjunct Angelina’s Ascendant; Moon Taurus
As you can see, the dates either involve Venus, planet of love, or Jupiter, planet of good fortune. Personally which date would I choose?:
1. Saturday 25th August
2. Saturday 11th August
3. Thursday 9th August.
