The celebrity break-up trend continues: After nine years together, actress Rachel Weisz and writer-director Darren Aronofsky (who were engaged for five years and have a four-year-old son, Henry) have gone their separate ways. No doubt all these splits during Scorpio’s reign is no surprise, as it is the sign of sex, passion, death and transformation. Big changes are going to happen with this much intensity is in the air. So, how did that astrological impact affect Rachel and Darren?
Both are born with aspects currently aggravated by Scorpio. Rachel has a Venus in Aquarius, the planet of love, which squares Scorpio. Meanwhile, Darren, an Aquarius, has his mid-heaven under fire and is likely shifting his priorities. Chances are this is an end to a long period of struggles, questions and confusion and also their perfect time to reveal the news, as astrologically the solutions for their differences have hit a wall. Compatibility-wise, their elements were not in sync, and odds are they have had power struggles all along, with Darren likely being the more dominant one to set the pace of their relationship. Most likely, Rachel called this end, as she likely was over trying to get him onto her page or at least a higher slot on his priority list.
