Triple Libran Will Smith, I just read, is going to be talking to Oprah about his use of the hallucinogen ayahuasca to help with his marriage woes and ‘opening up like never before‘ about his sense of ‘failing every woman I interact with.‘ Naturally he’s also plugging his new memoirs – Will – co-written with The Subtle Art Of Not Giving A Fuq author. If he wants the Oprah audience, he has to sign off on the ’emote’ clauses.
At first I thought it was a manifestation of the Mandela Effect, the phenom where mass amounts of people share the same – evidently false – memory. The classic example is the Berenstein Bears – apparently, the kid’s book bear family were the Berenstains. I don’t believe it but then again I thought Will Smith and his wife, Plutonic-Virgo Jada Pinkett-Smith, got divorced when Bruce and Demi did.
Maybe it’s just Deja-Vu? They’ve been flamboyantly hovering on the brink of divorce for decades. I remember watching an interview in the 90s – about three minutes after they were married – talking about the struggle, as well as the possibility of an open marriage. I checked and yes, it’s been their theme all century: they even made a dark comedy about a miserable marriage in 2004, starring themselves.
So you know what this is? It’s an Infinity Marriage: one of the rare couplings that can exist in a drama loop forever. The sort of snark -saturated incidents that would be the final irony in a standard relationship on the edge actually make an Infinity Marriage stronger.
They’re hell to be involved with because they draw others into their vortex with avid glee. They present as imminent escapees from their marital gulag or suave polyamorists, albeit a strange variety where arrangements are semi-open and truth is a fluctuating currency.
But no, despite initial appearances, faked futures and protestations of love, the ‘outsiders’ are bit players on the edge of the spotlight. They’re supposed to glide smoothly off stage, leaving the Infinity couple to monologue at one another in a pool of light. Naturally the entire effect is magnified when the duo is as celebrated, talented and wealthy as the Pinkett-Smiths.
Will Smith is a Libra – Sun, Mercury plus Venus – and his Sun trines a Gemini Ascendant. He’s also got Jupiter, Pluto, Uranus and the Sun in the 5th house – yes, he is a classic 5th house person.
He’s a Jupiter-Pluto guy and Jada has Jupiter-Neptune, in Sagittarius and rising. He has no Fire apart from Saturn in Aries: She IS his Fire. And she has NO Water. Zilch. You could surmise that Will, with his nifty Neptune-Moon conjunction in Scorpio, would be her Water and in a weird way he is but guess what?
Her Lilith is in Scorpio, conjunct his Moon-Neptune. So with this set-up, my hypothesis would be that to get the elemental Water quality she craves from him – emotional intimacy, space for her psyche – Jada would need to embody Lilith: the ‘harlot’ who cussed at God, left Adam and stalked out of the Garden of Eden. Well, actually, she flew and her villain origin story is complex but you get the idea.
Additionally her Mars is on his Midheaven and so she probably has quelled her dreams to help him – and the kids – to cultivate theirs. It’s been raised a few times and it’s a common enough wifely tale but publicity-wise, she can’t top her husband’s Peter Pan ascendant nor the sort of studio resources that would mobilize to protect his reputation. In a classic Lilith scenario, her affairs are looked on more harshly than those of her husband.
However, Pluto is about to trine her Sun-Pluto-Midheaven conjunction for the next few years – it’s an extremely potent portal of opportunity. If I was her astrologer, I’d say – more tactfully than this, obviously – that the Infinity Marriage may or may not be managable/desirable but could it also serve as a gigantic construct to prevent her from the responsibility of expressing her full Plutonic self and talents? She’s Jupiter Rising with Neptune – so of course her diversions are lurid and over the top. She has the means to seize space for herself and power up into a plutonic creative output bender.
They’re both Jupiter/Outer-Planet people: Astrologically, it’s easy to see why they rev one another up. Although I’d still like for Jada to turn up in one of Will’s psychedelic marriage-examining trance-trips as a three-eyed jaguar.
