Rappers Nicki Minaj and Nas reportedly began dating June 2017 and ended their romance several weeks ago due to the difficulties of a long distance relationship. They both managed to keep details of their relationship fairly quiet, so let's see if astrology reveals other possible factors that could have caused the demise of their relationship.
Nicki Minaj - December 8, 1982 - SAGITTARIUS
Nas - September 14, 1973 - VIRGO
Generally speaking, Virgo is stable and on the lookout for the ONE. Sagittarius is a free-spirit that finds it difficult to settle down with anyONE for too long. However, they are intrigued by these differences. And, fortunately for them, they are both flexible and open-minded enough to talk through any conflicts these differences may cause. Another celebrity couple example is Beyonce (Virgo) and Jay Z (Sagittarius).
Going deeper, I took a look inside Nicki and Nas's astrological comaptibility chart (compiled using astrowin.org's link on my Do Your Chart page). A compatibility chart looks at more than just each person's sign. It takes into account the positions of all the planets during the time each person was born. Unfortunately, Nicki and Nas's compatibility score was a negative number which indicates an extremely challenging relationship. Other celebrity couples with negative scores include Tamar Braxton and Vincent Herbert, Rihanna and Chris Brown, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie,...you get the picture, right?
Nicki and Nas's astrological compatibility chart had a lot of aspects that suggested they inspired each other and stimulated each other's ambition and artistic expression. However, the following is a revealing negative aspect taken from their chart that may explain some more of their issues...
Nas's Mercury squares Nicki'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 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.
Ironically, this aspect in their chart contradicts the general description of a Virgo and Sagittarius relationship that I included at the beginning of this article. That's why it's always a good idea to do a compatibility chart in order to get a more accurate description that's specific to your relationship.
