He was the bad boy turned good, and she was the good girl turned bad. Together, they were the cool couple that everyone was rooting for, yet over the holidays the couple announced their split.
Russell is a cheeky, witty Gemini, while Katy is a fiery, sassy Scorpio. Scorpios love control, intensity and focus while Geminis are all over the map. Geminis often cannot provide the grounding and sense of loyalty needed to get a Scorpio to fully trust them, while the Scorpio's need for order and tendency to anger can wear a Gemini down over time.
Katy and Russell's suns are inconjunct, which means they are housed in one of the signs next to their opposite sign. Did you ever know someone that you really thought was cool, and wanted to get to know better, but whenever you tried it was just difficult to connect, as if you were on a different wavelength – this often happens with inconjunct signs. Inconjuncts do not repel or cause problems, but it is very difficult to obtain that feeling of being on the same page, at the same time – the energies just don't gel. You can try to project love and understanding onto them, but the reality often doesn't add up.
The inconjunction is kind of a non-aspect aspect. The major aspects are the trine, conjunction, sextile, square and opposite. In couples charts, there is normally some kind of major connection between the suns that serves as the glue that holds the pair together. Trines and sextiles keep couples together through joy and shared interests, while squares cause personal growth through challenge. Opposites really do attract and create a nice balance, while conjunct suns may find the couple having too much in common to keep things interesting long-term.
