but not divorced, Bruce Willis and Demi Moore are giving personal definition
to love and relationships.
Willis, perennial bachelor, met and married Demi Moore in 1987. Their
marriage, which began with a kitschy unconventional union (they were,
after all, married in Las Vegas by Little Richard), soon evolved into a
rocky, resource-driven, Hollywood version of mom, pop and the kids.
two years after the couple’s announced separation, Bruce says he doesn’t
believe in the general success of long-term fidelity or monogamy. But
the couple’s millions of dollars in joint real estate holdings have
yet to be distributed, and there is still only speculation about an eventual
Bruce travels the world with a new love, takes risks and stretches himself
with new roles in the movies and on TV, Demi stretches herself in another
direction. Once the highest paid female star in Hollywood, Demi is now
semi-retired from filmmaking and a stay-at-home mom, with a new love
of her own.
look at their individual horoscopes reveals that marital bliss might
be difficult, and perhaps undesirable for either to sustain over time.
Both Bruce and Demi have Venus (love) square (challenging) Mars (sexual
desire). When love and sexual desire clash within an individual’s psyche,
the person has a dilemma and seems to need complex and difficult
relationships in which to work it out.
do you love-em and leave-em while hanging on to all you have?
Bruce Willis, born March 19, 1955, in Idar-Oberstein, Germany, has Venus
(how he forms relationships and expresses affection) in the social,
idealistic and individualistic sign of Aquarius. Free and unconventional
with his affections, Bruce is flirtatious, experimental and loves an
active social life. He may appear to be the cool dude with a take-it-or-leave-it
attitude, but Bruce’s relationship needs are not quite so simple.
has Mars (the way he openly asserts himself and expresses his desires)
in Taurus, the possessive, pragmatic sign of material abundance. To
say that Bruce is possessive and will hang on to all he has accumulated,
including Demi, could be an understatement. This cool dude comes with
a lot of baggage.
separated from his wife (Venus in Aquarius) with resources and loved
ones intact (Mars in Taurus), Bruce has seemingly found a way to have
his cake and eat it, too.
do you play light-hearted romantic games and still experience the depths
and passions of love?
Moore’s style of relating is not quite so cut and dried as Bruce’s.
Born November 11, 1962, in Roswell, New Mexico, her Venus (exactly conjunct
Bruce’s horoscope) is in the sultry, secretive, seductive sign of Scorpio.
Demi values the passionate depths and extremes of an emotional bond.
Love, rather than being social, is a deeply private, intimate and emotional
experience for her. Obsessive and possessive when in love, Demi is reluctant
to trust, and prefers seclusion to the active social life favored by
like Bruce, Demi’s relationships become even more complex with the addition
of Mars. Her Mars in Leo, the deeply private Demi also has a drive
to attract special attention. Openly flamboyant, her natural inclination
is to fascinate and draw romantic overtures from others.
is now involved in an affair with her martial arts instructor. An extramarital
affair is a romantic game that by its very nature is not social. Affairs
are passionate, private and carried on in seclusion. The situation seems
to have progressed to favor Demi’s dilemma.
this affair may spark some melodrama in a parting that seemed a little
too cool, calm and controlled. The normally placid Bruce (Mars in Taurus)
may be stirred into action if he senses the affair is serious enough
to spur Demi into the long-delayed divorce.
It Forever or Is It for Uranus?
early 1999, almost a year after their separation, the media began to
reveal movement in the sleepy, amiable separation. As transiting Uranus
(planet of rebellion) formed a square aspect to Mars in both horoscopes,
Bruce’s relationship with Maria Bravo was revealed. And as Uranus made
a conjunction to his Venus in Aquarius, Demi’s affair with her young
martial arts instructor became known. It seems the amiable separation
could be getting just a little too crowded.
Uranus, like an unpredictable tornado, changes the landscape. It can
pick you up in one place and set you down in another, but it is just
as likely to lift you high into the air, shake
you up and then put you down exactly where you began. Like any good
storm, it also clears the atmosphere.
to hear a lot more about Bruce and Demi during the remainder of this
year, as transiting Uranus continues to aspect Venus in the horoscopes
of both. Next year, as the storm dies down, you can be sure Bruce and
Demi will have redefined their relationship in significant ways.
with Uranus, it is always best to expect the unexpected.
Willis has Saturn at 20 degrees Scorpio, exactly conjunct Demi Moore’s
Venus in Scorpio. One person’s Saturn
blending with the personal planets of another’s horoscope can be very
important. When that planet is Venus, it fosters loyalty and dependency.
In a marriage this contact can fuse the couple together for better or
worse, enabling the marriage to withstand the tests of time.
