Who WAS she, and HOW had she accomplished such a feat? And why had other amazing women the world over (including gorgeous movie stars and royalty) failed?
If we look first at John's chart, some things become clear...

Since I'm a Vedic astrologer, I'm using the calculations of Vedic astrology here (which differ from those of Western astrology by almost an entire sign).
John's chart had MANY women in it... and so did his life.
He had a girlfriend throughout highschool, a college sweetheart he dated for six years, a five year relationship with actress Daryl Hannah, and interludes in between with others such as Brooke Shields, Madonna, and Sarah Jessica Parker.
So he was a man always with a woman...
This can be seen by the Moon being in his seventh house - the house of partnership.
The Moon shows where we put our emotional focus, and indicates "many." When the Moon is in the part of the chart indicating partnership in a man's chart, it means he'll prefer being in relationships. But it also means he'll have many...
John has the classic "late bloomer in love" chart, which is why he didn't marry until his mid-thirties, even though he knew great love before.
This is because he has the planet Venus (which indicates the wife) in the same sign as the planet Saturn (a combo that delays marriage) and the house of partnership both aspected and ruled by the planet Saturn - making it best that he be at least thirty-five before he fully commit himself.
(I write about late bloomers in love in my ebook, "Love Is In The Stars" as it's so common and explains why so many early marriages fail, and so many great people don't marry until late. To learn more about this phenomenon that affects over half the population and more on the importance of timing in love, check out the book.)
Some interesting side notes about John's chart - his rising sign was Leo, the natural sign of royalty and rulership, known for attracting a great deal of attention and being loaded with charisma and authority.
As I explain in my audio program, "Signs of Compatibility," the rising sign has a big impact on how others see you - ESPECIALLY your rising constellation, or SUB-SIGN.
(In Vedic astrology we look to twenty-seven smaller signs, called constellations or sub-signs, within the signs of the zodiac that give WAY more juicy
detail and specificity...)
John's rising constellation is called, "Magha" which means "the mighty one."

Magha people have EXTRA power and magnetic attraction over others. And it's not only associated with royalty, it's symbolized by a king's throne room...
