|Here is an odd, stormy, and passionate coupling of two very famous Mexican artists -Diego Rivera -a jovial and philandering Sagittarian Sun, and Frida Kahlo -an emotional and clinging Cancerian Sun. Both Suns find each other strange but fascinating, with the elements of fate and service figuring prominently in their long-term relationship. Kahlo's Leo rising nicely compliments Rivera's Sun as does Rivera's Virgo rising to Kahlo's Sun establishing a basic compatability. Their Moons are both in Taurus forming a strong emotional bond, and their Mercurys are both in fire signs so that their is a lively but compatible communicative rapport between the two. The Venus signs are in opposition indicating challenging but complementary likes and dislikes and the two Mars positions are conjunct in earth signs indicating a passionate, sensual, and lively sexual rapport as well the ability to work together productively in unison. Riveras's Mars makes a quincunx(inconjunct) aspect to Kahlo's Venus so that he finds her exciting and mysterious but her Mars semi-sextile his Venus is more buisness- oriented. The Jupiters are in square indicating different philosophies or visions but the Saturns are in trine indicating similar goals and attitudes toward responsibility. In the water signs there is a common interest in establishing creative or artistic careers(both Cancer and Pisces are associated with painting). Their Uranus positions are in square indicating occasional squabbles or disruptions and different attitudes towards friendship and humanitarian pursuits. Both Neptune's in water or earth give fertile imaginations and psyches which are excellent for painting, and both Plutos in Gemini link them both to an era of mass media and communication, where thoughts, words, ideas, and gestures have profound power. Both have newly discovered Eris in the artistic and impressionable sign of Pisces. For more on their union and work see here|
