Celebrity break-ups, make-ups, marriages, and other matters of love of relationships have the public wondering exactly how compatible some of our favorite pairs might be. Just look to the daily headlines about Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck’s rekindled romance nearly 20 years after they first were an item. While we may not get an inside look at their relationship, we can take an educated guess about how they relate to each other thanks to astrology. The A-listers’ zodiac signs can give insight on their respective personalities, communication styles, intimacy, and even sex life.
To help us decode the astrological compatibility of nostalgic favorites like Bennifer as well as newer pairs like Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly, L’OFFICIEL consults Aliza Kelly, a professional astrologer and author of This is Your Destiny: Using Astrology to Manifest Your Best Life, out this fall. Well versed in how the celestial alignments affect individuals and relationships, the astrologer explains how it’s possible for seemingly opposite signs to attract, what it means when two people of the same sign connect, and more.
From a star-powered triple Leo love triangle to a “Drunk in Love” 20-year long match, Kelly shares how the stars align (or don’t) for five celebrity couples.
Jennifer Lopez (Leo) and Ben Affleck (Leo)
It's compelling that right after J.Lo split with her now ex fiancè Alex Rodriguez (a Leo), she rekindled the spark with her old flame, Ben Affleck who is also a Leo. The truth is that this Fire sign isn't just looking for a lover—Leo is looking for a co-ruler to reign. Perhaps Bennifer is interested in reimagining their kingdom, shifting the focus away from the yachts and six-carat diamonds that defined their relationship in the early aughts, to a partnership fueled by creativity, laughter, and youthful passion. One thing's for sure: It's only a matter of time before these two make things very public. —Aliza Kelly
Katy Perry (Scorpio) and Orlando Bloom (Capricorn)
While most signs can't handle Capricorn's relentless ambition, writing the mythological seagoat off as a stoic workaholic,Scorpio is actually attracted by Capricorn's hustle. In fact, it's likely that the bond between Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom is fueled by their mutual respect for each other's determination, resourcefulness, and professional intensity. Of course—not to get too pervy here—but a Scorpio-Capricorn partnership is also known to be extra spicy in the bedroom, so it's likely that this couple really shines behind closed doors. — Aliza Kelly
Chrissy Teigen (Sagittarius) and John Legend (Capricorn)
I’m obsessed with the bond between Chrissy Teigen and John Legend because each lover is, quite literally, the archetype of their respective sign. Teigen’s Saggitariu Sun is fiery and outspoken, while Legend’s Capricorn Sun epitomizes the cool, calm, and collected daddy that satiates our collective father issues (BTW—in astrology, Capricorn and its planetary ruler, Saturn, are associated with the paternal figure). While Sagittarius may never understand Capricorn's stoicism, the Sagittarius-Capricorn thrives when they celebrate and uplift each other's differences. We literally love to see it! —Aliza Kelly
Beyoncé (Virgo) and Jay-Z (Sagittarius)
On paper, these two couldn't be a less likely pair: practical Virgos love to label and organize, while wildfire Sagittarians despise anything that makes them feel contained. However, Virgo is ruled by Mercury (the planet of expressions and communication) and Sagittarius is governed by Jupiter (the celestial body associated with expansion and philosophy), so both of these zodiac signs share a deep appreciation for poetry, wordplay, and—perhaps most importantly—intellectualism. TL;DR: Beyoncé and Jay-Z are both absolute geniuses, and their relationship is built on matters of the mind. So, even considering all things Lemonade, they are still #couplegoals. —Aliza Kelly
Megan Fox (Taurus) and Machine Gun Kelly (Taurus)
Anecdotally, I've seen more successful Taurus-Taurus relationships than any other same-sign couple. Taurus is ruled by Venus, the planet of values and beauty, so when lovers share this zodiac sign, there's just something about their mutual appreciation for fine dining, luxurious baths, and sensual massage that make this pairing unbelievably magnetic. And, from what I've been able to observe from my plebeian POV, Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly's bond is romantic, playful, and fashionable AF. — Aliza Kelly
