After nearly nine years, a marriage sealed with a pinkyswear and a set of fraternal twins, Melissa Etheridge and Tammy Lynn Michaels are over. After the news broke, the mud was soon flying with Tammy Lynn crying out that she’d been blindsided. So, what went wrong?
When it comes to fiery passion, these two had it in spades. Between Melissa’s Moon, Venus, Mars and Uranus in fires signs and Tammy Lynn’s Sun, Moon, Venus and Neptune also in fire signs, there is major chemistry between them. However, with not enough balance, these combinations of fire can burn each other out. In addition, Melissa’s Mars (planet of aggression) in Leo and Tammy Lynn’s in Scorpio form a tense aspect that is known for ego clashing and power struggles; both aren’t prone to listen and both are stubborn. Added to that, both have Mercury (the communications planet) in water signs, making both of them given to holding back until too late, taking passive-aggressive tactics until emotions snowball out of control and, in this case, lead to divorce.
