A happily married man abruptly leaves his wife of five years for a woman he briefly met at work. He is quickly divorced and begins a new relationship. What happened?

Marriage is so fragile these days that you might dismiss this as a passing fling for a man just entering his forties. But six years later, he is now the proud father of six children and warmly fulfilled with his new partner.

While the tabloids may sporadically spread rumors of disenchantment between Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, the astrological planets tell a much different story. Brad and Angelina share 23 synastry midpoints between their charts while he only had 18 synastry midpoints in common with Jennifer Aniston. Sheer numbers are important, but the nature of their many midpoint connections tells us even more.

Angelina said in a recent interview that she sensed a profound emotional bond with Brad after they initially met. She didn’t have to say anything; their astrological midpoints reveal a sincere union.

The moon is the planet of emotions and deep attachments; Brad has an amazing ten Moon midpoints (and Venus since his Moon conjuncts Venus in his Cosmobiology and natal charts) to Angelina’s planets while she has five to his. Interestingly, he shares only five Moon-Venus synastry aspects with Aniston while she has none with him.

Let’s look at some of his vital Moon-Venus midpoints and read the interpretations below. You can see that Brad’s Moon-Venus combo brings much love, harmony, and balance to Angelina’s life. No one knows how long this union will last but these aspects offer a lasting opportunity.

Two Presidents distanced by nearly 150 years through three centuries, share striking similarities both in their personal history and in their astrological midpoints.
Abraham Lincoln was inaugurated the nation’s 16th president in 1860 while Barack Obama was sworn in to the nation’s highest office as the 44th president in 2008.

Both men were born of common means and made their way to the state of Illinois where they were elected to a single term in Congress before assuming the Presidency. They shared a love of words, strong powerful words that helped shape a nation in turmoil.

President Lincoln faced the ‘war of the states,’ while President Obama found a nation also deeply divided and in the greatest economic danger since the great depression.
Let’s look at key midpoints to their Mercury — revealing insights into each man’s thinking and communication skills.President Lincoln’s Mercury directly opposes Mars when seen in the 90 degree Cosmobiology wheel. His Mercury also intersects a Neptune-Pluto midpoint.

Mercury-Mars suggests a debater and this is especially striking considering the historical importance of the famous Lincoln-Douglass debates before the Civil War. Mars is also the planet of war and strife; combining this with Mercury and you will find a military strategist, a trait well-suited for commanding Northern states in the US Civil War. Similarly, Neptune-Pluto suggests great mental strength and a powerful understanding – this is emphasized when contacting Mercury. President Lincoln was a highly intellectual person renowned for his deep thinking.

Turning to President Obama whose Mercury is in Leo in his traditional astrology chart at 2′ 19" and Jupiter in Aquarius at 0′ 51", These are both fixed signs and fall in the same place on the 90 degree wheel forming a strong conjunction.

Mercury-Jupiter suggests a rational, calm, philisophic thinker. Many times this contact is found in attorneys, writers, and teachers. Jupiter’s expansion on Mercury is found early in President Obama’s career when he was elected Presidnet of the Harvard Law Review. This is a highly prestigious honor only afforded the brightest and best attorneys who graduate from Harvard.

Later, when elected President of the United States, the Jupiter expansion on his thinking is seen with his historic health care program that covers every citizen. He also faced an economic downturn second only to the Great Depression. Big thinking was required to keep the country afloat during this difficult time.

This Mercury-Jupiter conjunction is midpoint Saturn-Neptune. This provides endurance through Saturn as seen by the President’s follow through on the vision for the country and a philosophical humanitarian quality that describes his character.
