Underneath the Stars: Celebrity Astro-News
Jessica Simpson Has a Daughter
Welcome, Maxwell Drew Johnson, baby Taurus! Cancer Jessica Simpson gave birth to her daughter on May 1. That makes the baby a Taurus with a Virgo moon, an Earthy kid indeed. Maxwell also has a very lucky "grand trine" in Earth signs in her chart. The trine (three-way angle) is between ambitious Mars, lucky Jupiter and transformational Pluto. This kid could surpass her super-famous mom in her influence, and might even end up a political leader or global tycoon. Taurus kids tend to be loyal to their parents, so Simpson may have birthed someone who will take over the family empire later on. Luckily for Jessica, Taurus babies are also good sleepers, so we imagine (and hope!) little Maxwell is probably happily snoozing her first few days away.
Khloe Kardashian (Cancer) & Lamar Odom (Scorpio) Take a Break From Reality TV
Now here's an un-Kardashian move we're cheering for: Khloe and Lamar are taking a break from the reality-show cameras that have followed her family through every triumphant AND unceremonious moment of their televised lives. For two private Water signs, we imagine it must have been harder for them to have constant camera time than for Khloe's sisters Kim (a Libra) and Kourtney (an Aries). As a Scorpio, Lamar may have struggled most, as this sign can be downright paranoid about having their business broadcast to the world. We applaud them for putting their personal lives above fame, a rare move in today's reality-drenched world. Kudos!
Virgo LeAnn Rimes & Gemini Eddie Cibrian Renew Vows
On their one-year anniversary, LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian renewed their vows in a barefoot (her) and sandaled (him) trip down the aisle. A couple of weeks ago, I (Ophi) had the fun opportunity of doing a chart reading for LeAnn by phone. She was not only incredibly nice, she was also funny and sharp — and an astrology lover too. Cliché as it sounds, it was like talking to a cool, down-to-earth friend. While the couple have had their share of scandalous media coverage (they met while both were married), the reading revealed a strong soul-mate relationship. Both Rimes and Cibrian have their Moon in Capricorn, indicating that they have the same romantic needs and desires. They also have opposite north and south nodes (the destiny points in the chart), showing that they are here to help each other grow on a deep soul level. Virgo and Gemini are also both ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication. This would indicate that they're not only in love, but are also close friends who enjoy talking to each other. Happy anniversary!
