Man, poor Gwyneth Paltrow…
She’s probably the most beloved, hated woman in America.
Everything she does is either celebrated or trashed… never does she seem to garner a lukewarm response.
Last Spring Gwyneth was named People’s “World’s Most Beautiful Woman” the same week she was named by Star magazine as the “Most Hated Celebrity.”
What gives? And why would she divorce the talented, adorable front man of one of the greatest bands of our time (IMHO)?
(If they could agree to name their children “Apple” and “Moses” they should be able to get through anything, right?)
Are the rumors true? Is Gwyneth a cheater? Is Chris? Have they been merely “pretending” to be a couple for years, for the sake of the kids and careers? Or is marriage just “so hard” as Gwyneth has said many times over the years?
Let’s go to the astrological vault, shall we?
One look at Gwyneth’s chart, and it’s easy to see why she’s such a strong personality, leaving such a strong impression on people.
On the “good” side: According to the calculations of Vedic astrology (which differ from those of Western astrology by almost an entire sign), Gwyneth was born when almost every planet, including the Sun, Moon, and rising sign, was in a feminine sign.
This typically makes a woman extremely confident, attractive, and alluring… She’ll dress beautifully and take great care of herself, all things Gwyneth is known for.
Even better, her chart has the Moon in the sign of Taurus, the Moon’s very favorite sign, in a Vedic constellation called “Rohini” which means “Queen of the Constellations.”
Rohini is considered the favorite of the Moon’s 27 Vedic signs, and one of the best for marriage.
In fact, there’s a beautiful ancient myth that says the Moon was married to each of the twenty-seven signs, and spent one night a month visiting each “wife.” His favorite, though, was Rohini, because she was so beautiful, such a snappy dresser and skilled cook, a talented musician, hostess, and goddess of “the conjugal arts” (wink, wink). (All things Gwyneth is associated with…)
So, really, why would the Moon need any of his other wives at all? He didn’t… so he’d choose to stay with Rohini and reject his other wives. The other “brides” of the Moon became jealous and went to their “father” (one of the Gods) and he cast a spell on the Moon to become sick every month, but recover.
This is how ancient peoples explained the waxing and waning of the Moon every month… cute story, eh?
Now, as is the case with most myths, there’s an element of truth to it. People born with something significant (the Sun, Moon, or rising sign) placed in Rohini will experience the jealousy of others sharply.
