Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick, one of Hollywood’s longest-lasting marriages of 26 years, are appearing on stage together is London in a Neil Simon play Plaza Suite. Reviews are generally good though focus on the stratospheric ticket price. She has had an award-strewn career with Sex and the City the highlight. Matthew Broderick has worked constantly on stage and in musicals as well as in movies.
What is intriguing about their connection is that both are Sun Venus in Aries. Traditional wisdom has it that while certain signs get on with themselves not all of them do. But Gunter Sachs in his study of birth charts found that many more pick their own sign for a partner than you would expect.
Sarah Jessica Parker 25 March 1965 9am Nelsonville, Ohio has her Sun Venus and Mercury in Aries in her friendly 11th house with a hard-working Saturn in her 10th (good for her TV production business) opposition Uranus, Mars, Pluto in Virgo in her 4/5th; trine an 8th house Capricorn Moon and an ever hopeful Jupiter in Taurus in her 12th opposition Neptune. She did have a fractured childhood though she speaks well of it and it is probably as well she picked a career that is constantly changing and exciting since she would not suit a sedate life. She was previously in a relationship with Robert Downey Jnr through his drug problem years.
Matthew Broderick, 21 March 1962, no time, New York, also has a Sun and Venus in Aries and a (probably) Libra Moon; with his Saturn and Jupiter in Aquarius falling in Jessica’s 10th house of career to help in her career. Though his Mars in Pisces conjunct her Saturn may not always be as idyllic as the press releases sound.
Their relationship chart has a composite affectionate Sun Venus in a sparky trine to Mars. With a fated yod of Pluto sextile Neptune inconjunct a successful, enthusiastic Jupiter. Plus a less helpful composite Mars square Pluto and Uranus – so there will be an undertow about who is in control.
The conventional wisdom has it that Scorpios get in with other Scorpios since they need the emotional intensity that only one of their own can provide. Aquarians get on with Aquarians for the opposite reason – they both appreciate space.
Leos together was always deemed a definite no-no since both will fight to grab all the attention. Not something that Jennifer Lopez appears to have grasped having hooked up with two Leos in a row – Alex Rodriguez and Ben Affleck.
