Kobe Bryant is as controversial as he is talented at basketball. This time his wife Vanessa is putting him in the news, as she halts signing the divorce papers due to another shot at reconciliation. After 10 years of marriage, and a very high-profile divorce, is this relationship salvageable?
Kobe is a Virgo and Vanessa is a Taurus -- two Earth signs, which means they don’t reach decisions quickly or want to change readily. Hence, this current shot at making it work at the zero hour. Luckily, the stars are on their side right now as Venus (love) and Saturn (karma) are in retrograde. This can help them go over all the facts with a fine-tooth comb and sort it out, as retrogrades denote a time to re-edit projects, relationships, etc. However, these planets are retrograding in Gemini and Libra respectively, Air elements, so it doesn’t bode so well for the earthy duo. For Vanessa, this is probably her last chance to clear up residual emotions, as this Venus period hits her Twelfth House. For Kobe, Venus is in his status house, so for him it is about trying to salvage his reputation more than anything. Divorce is likely imminent when Venus and Saturn go direct at the end of the month.
