Catherine Zeta Jones & Michael Douglas - too much pressure

  She was born on 25 Sep 1969 2.40pm Swansea, Wales, UK and he was born on 25 September 1944 10.30 am New Brunswick, New Jersey, USA.

 

 

   The relationship chart has an affectionate and mutually morale boosting composite Sun Venus Jupiter Mercury conjunction in the 10th. The slight downside of the 10th house emphasis is that successful careers were all important as were keeping up appearances and putting on a splashy show. So they went for an extravaganza wedding, had seven or more houses and needed the glitzy red carpet life to feel good. 

   There was also a composite Moon opposition Uranus so both needed space which with their lifestyle they would get. But there was also a Pluto square Saturn and square Mars - so over time resentments would creep in and power struggles erupt.

   She is radiantly beautiful but does she ever have a tough chart? A Libra Sun conjunct Pluto on one side and Uranus on the other square Mars in Capricorn; with an Earth Grand Trine of Mars trine Saturn in Taurus trine Venus in Virgo. And a Pisces Moon opposition Pluto square Mars as well. There's a volcano of anger in there as well as driving determination to accumulate possessions. She’s materialistic and prone to blowing fuses at home. 

  He's a Sun Neptune in Libra so charming but rather slippery, tricky to pin down, quite emotionally cool with a Capricorn Moon opposition Saturn in Cancer square Sun Neptune. 

   The wedding chart, 18 Nov 2000 7.30pm New York was odd. A close 5th house Sun opposition Saturn suggests too much work ahead; plus a one-upmanship Jupiter opposition Pluto; and an irritable-at-home 4th house Mars trine Neptune Uranus trine Jupiter in an Air Grand Trine hinting at the need to keep emotions at arm's length; plus an insensitive Venus square Mars. Again great for show with the 5th house Sun and as long as everything was running smoothly with all that Air. But not good at nitty gritty everyday emotional problem solving. 

   That wedding chart is being pressured by tr Pluto square the Mars exactly now and tr Uranus in opposition through this year. 

   Their relationship chart indicates there were major stresses from about 2007 onwards as the Saturn in Virgo opposition Uranus square Pluto running tugged away at that glitzy 10th house composite Mercury Jupiter Venus Sun. So their multiple problems did take their toll.

   Neither have easy Moon aspects - she Moon Pluto Mars and he Moon Saturn Neptune - so domestic life was never going to be that harmonious even without major challenges from outside. 

  It will be a shame if it splits but the damage may already have been done since she looked as if she shut off some time back and he looks in the mood for a decision about separation later this year.
