Angelina Joli’s lawyer says she has she filed for divorce from Brad Pitt, adding that the “decision was made for the health of the family”, and seeking custody of the six children. They’ve been together since 2004 but only married in on 23 August 2014, when there was a harsh Mars Saturn in Scorpio inconjunct Uranus and on the focal point of a mini-Grand Trine to Mercury trine Pluto – so not a good augury for what was to follow. Anger, arguments and one side feeling ill-done to.
Neither have especially easy charts. She’s a Sun Gemini opposition Neptune, trine Pluto; with fairly horrific Pluto opposition Mars Moon Jupiter square Saturn in Cancer, a legacy from her angst-ridden childhood. He’s a Sun Sagittarius with a volatile Mars Mercury in Capricorn trine Uranus Pluto.
Her Sun is in his 7th and his Venus Moon in Capricorn is conjunct her Descendant from her 6th so it would fit for a while. His Sun is in her 5th so he’d bring a sparkle to her life, want her to be sociable and living the high life, and be child-oriented. But her Pluto is in his 10th so she’d tend to over control him and her Saturn falls in his 8th which isn’t good for intimacy.
Their relationship chart does hint at over-possessiveness with a composite Sun opposition Pluto. There is a passionately enthusiastic composite Venus trine Mars; and an adventurous Jupiter opposition Uranus which often occurs in spontaneous relationships that seemed a good idea at the time. Most damaging is a composite Mars square Neptune, so an ego-imbalance which is fatal in showbiz marriages since one’s success makes the other feel diminished, so not mutually supportive. It did get stretched to breaking point around 2009, but hung on as Plutonic relationships tend to. Tr Saturn is moving to square the composite Sun this December and square composite Pluto in 2017. This is quarter of a Saturn cycle on from 2009. Plus tr Uranus will oppose their composite Venus in 2017.
His Sun/Moon midpoint, usually an indicator of marriage splits, has been through the mill since 2012, but isn’t much affected at the moment; and her Sun/Moon won’t pick up major aspects until about 2021.
He’s moving into a lower profile, less successful phase of his life with tr Saturn sinking below his Ascendant now; and looks financially on edge. Plus he has tr Uranus square his Moon Venus in early 2017. Tr Uranus is moving into his 5th as well – all of which suggest a wish for more freedom, romantically and socially.
She’s been wading through thick treacle and fairly depressed also since about 2012 with the tr Pluto square tr Uranus hitting on her Mars and then Moon, when she had a double mastectomy and focussed on her humanitarian work. She’s got tr Pluto opposition her Saturn and square her Jupiter till late 2017, so very up and down.
The DM reports he is allegedly having an affair with French actress Marion Cotillard, 30 Sept 1975 4.50am Paris, but that doesn’t look a great mix with her Sun Pluto in Libra square his Mars Mercury and her Mars in Gemini opposition his Sun. That match looks good for work but explosive otherwise.
I wouldn’t be totally surprised if they danced backwards and forwards over the divorce and it took some years to finalise. Maybe that’s wrong but there’s nothing too startling showing up exactly at the moment.
