Fergie and Josh Duhamel finally announce separation after eight years of marriage. The couple share a four year old son named Axl. PEOPLE released Josh and Fergie's joint public statement:
“With absolute love and respect we decided to separate as a couple earlier this year,” the couple said in a joint statement. “To give our family the best opportunity to adjust, we wanted to keep this a private matter before sharing it with the public. We are and will always be united in our support of each other and our family.”
Let's get right down to their astrological compatibility to try and make sense of it all.
Fergie - March 27, 1975 - ARIES
Josh Duhamel - November 14, 1972 - SCORPIO
A Scorpio and Aries are both very stubborn and adamant about getting their own way. So, obviously disagreements and arguments are inevitable with this zodiac match-up. Astromatcha.com has the details:
Disagreements over how to run their daily lives will lead to anger for both couples. The Aries woman has a fiery, volatile temper and will regularly throw some spectacular tantrums. She is, however, over it almost as soon as it has begun and won’t hold a grudge. Not so her Scorpio man. His temper is less overt – he will seethe with fury in the background, plotting revenge. And he never forgets, and only rarely forgives. The longer this relationship goes on, the more ammunition the Scorpio man will be storing up – and his Aries woman is likely to be unaware of his growing resentments. For the Scorpio man and Aries woman, compatibility flounders because of the Scorpio man’s inability to move on from a row.
For their unique compatibility strengths and weaknesses, I compiled their astrological compatibility chart (using astrowin.org linked in my Do Your Chart page). Their chart has an extremely low compatibility score for similar reasons as detailed in the compatibility description above. The GOOD was that they enjoy the same past times and even have a strong psychic tie, suggesting they may be soul mates. Side note, it's so strange that a couple can be spiritually connected yet face so many compatibility challenges. I see this quite often in Hollywood! Let's take a look at a very revealing negative aspect in their chart that may explain their separation:
Fergie's Mercury squares Josh's Mercury - According to Lois Rodden, "With MERCURY square MERCURY you'll often find that people initially will be somewhat wary of each other. MERCURY is spontaneously friendly. MERCURY makes quick connections with people. When MERCURY is square someone else's MERCURY, there may be some reticence to involve yourself with them too quickly. There is an initial obstacle or incompatibility that stands between you. That difference may be an attitude or circumstances. Change in understanding is needed for the breakthrough to communication. However, once that breakthrough is made, a bond is built that is mutually stimulating. However, unless both the people make that effort, they will regard each other with a degree of wary formality." It's like you somehow have to work your way into the relationship. MERCURY square MERCURY relationships can be some of the finest relationships you can have, people who have a deep bond of enduring friendship. The relation can include problems, but the give-and-take leads to growth of understanding. When this aspect occurs between people, you find that the people think entirely different; they express their thoughts totally differently. Often times you'll find that the two people constantly interrupt each other. This aspect is a stimulating aspect, but it's MERCURY stimulating MERCURY to talk. You may find yourselves repeatedly cutting each other off. This aspect can cause misunderstanding and serious differences of opinion. There is much criticism of each other. Your respective interests go in different directions with not much intellectual inspiration or encouragement between the two of you. This is a difficult aspect to work with in marriage, for it does not promote companionship. Discussions end in an impasse, neither one of you being able to understand or appreciate the ideas and judgments of the other. It often causes confusion of minds in reaction to each other and can lead to arguments, misunderstanding or just no understanding, and atmospheric tension in close associations. If your MERCURIES are in fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio or Aquarius), stubbornness is added which precludes compromise.
