While you may have credited luck and timing for bringing Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez together, turns out, their relationship was destined all along. In fact, J.Lo and A-Rod’s compatibility is astrological.
They’re both Leos born in New York in July. And according to Narayana Montúfar, senior astrologer at Astrology.com and Horoscope.com, when and where they were born determines the love they share for “being in the spotlight and in the entertainment industry.” What was that they said about opposites attracting again?
The strength of Jennifer and Alex’s relationship lies in their many similarities. They’re both elegant, generous, talented, and social at the core, Montúfar explains, which helps them overcome their differences and understand each other in ways no one else can…well, until now. Ahead, you’ll find every astrological detail that explains how J.Lo and A-Rod have maintained such a strong intimate connection in a relationship that’s center stage.
They don’t communicate the same way, but that’s helped their compatibility.
Leos, ruled by the Sun, like attention, so when they pair up “two questions are always bound to come up,” says Montúfar. First, who is more popular? And who gets to call the shots? After all, “no solar system has room for two Suns,” she adds.
Fortunately for J.Lo and A-Rod, butting heads isn’t something they’ll often deal with. “Mercury rules the way we communicate and in [J.Lo and A-Rod’s] case, their Mercury planets are in different signs,” Montúfar explains. Jennifer’s Mercury is in Leo which makes her a charming speaker—someone who commands a room.
Alex’s Mercury is in Cancer which makes him a sensitive listener who’s all about the heart-to-heart. And though they’re not ruled by the same Mercury, their planets are positioned closely enough to each other to complement one another. This allows them to be “inspired by each other’s ideas, and sometimes even finish each other’s sentences,” Montúfar says.
Their pleasure and romance rely on the deep bond they share.
J.Lo’s Venus is in Gemini and Alex’s is in Virgo meaning they “approach love and relationships as well as domestic life in a different manner,” says Montúfar. But the connection they have, not just as Leos, but also in the way they’ve conducted themselves even before they started dating, is what’s kept them together.
It’s a connection J.Lo’s described before: “I understand him in a way that I don’t think anyone else could, and he understands me in a way that no one else could ever,” she told Vanity Fair. “In his twenties, he came into big success with the biggest baseball contract [at the time]. I had a No. 1 movie and a No. 1 album and made history. We both had ups and downs and challenges in our thirties, and by our forties we’d both been through so much. And more importantly than anything, we had both done a lot of work on ourselves.”
Because they “probably spend hours discussing their work, their friends, and their plans” for which they have similar goals, says Montúfar, keeping the romance alive, despite the different ways they express their love, comes pretty easily to them.
They’re going to last.
J.Lo and A-Rod are both ready for the long-term with each other, which Montúfar knows because she took a look at the couple’s Sun-Saturn links which compares the way two people will commit to and interact with one another.
Jennifer needs someone who’s self-confident, driven, and who’s prepared to support her ventures and Alex is likely to feel a responsibility to Jennifer. He wants to be there for her and make her proud for as long as they’re together. These links make Montúfar confident that Jennifer and Alex “have what it takes to make a marriage last because they’ll be able to create life structures that work not only for one of them, but for both. Together, they will be able to grow their relationship in a careful, controlled way while still maintaining their careers and families as their focus,” she says.
