I blogged on the subject back in March of this year. I have a pretty massive set of synastry scores vs. Ms. Kelly, according to Sirus 1.1. I wouldn't care to deny that either. It's not unusual for Virgos and Cancers to have a thing for each other. It happens every day. It is considered a 5 star match-up.
I have a strong hunch that this Esquire feature must be run by a 1966 Virgo born in close proximity to me. He just went and selected another water-clan female who I have fairly substantial scores with. This time it is the notorious, even infamous, Rihanna.
Rihanna is 23 year old woman born February 20th, 1988 in Saint Michael, Barbados. She is a Pisces female if there ever was one. For the record, my Synastry scores versus Rihanna are as follows:
1. Romantic and Sexual Attraction: 167
2. Similarity of Interests and Temperament: 171
3. Mutual Success and High Achievement: 25
4. Problem Solving, Communication, and Mutual Understanding: 113
5. Mutual Kindness, Friendliness, Pleasantness, and Peace: 46
6. Aggressiveness, Competition, Power, Success, or Violence: 163
7. Adventurousness, Surprises, Disturbances: 53
8. Shared Creativity, Imagination, and Inspiration: 128
As always, and for the record, any score above 150 is considered extremely strong.
Frankly the line-up of planets is more favorable than the scores indicate. It would be difficult for a test-blinded Astrologer to justify how low these scores are. Her Moon is in Aries, conjuncted with mine. Her Mars is located at 28 degrees Sagittarius, which forms a nearly perfect Trine with my Venus at 22 degrees Leo. My Mars is located at 5 degrees Leo, forming a near perfect Trine with her Venus at 13 degrees Aries. It is a criss-cross Mars-Venus Trine situation. Fire, fire, fire baby! The exception is the Sun sign, in which case we have an opposition, the most powerful angle for attraction.
It's hard to justify the score of 167. Am I disputing this score? In this case, the answer is no. I am comfortable with the verdict of 167. I wouldn't care to move it higher. I might want to move it lower, but that might be a dishonest move.
Frankly, those scores pale in comparison to Minka Kelly's. For the record, you can see those scores here. Rihanna's scores can't hold a candle to those of the theoretically perfect Pisces female born 3/12/1986.
To say that I am ambivalent about Rihanna would be the understatement of the century. I have spoken many times about the love-hate-love ambivalence astrological opposites experience toward one another. This is certainly one of those cases for me.
On the positive side, I have to admit that I love Rihanna's music. It is a guilty pleasure for a Heavy Metalist like me. I can't seem to make it through the day without listening to Rude Boy at least 10 times. This is probably my favorite song. That may be an understatement. I am steadily wearing out the CD in my car stereo. I am playing it to death. For the record here is that video:
On the negative side, you will never find a Pisces girl at her naughty, nasty, bad worst like this one is. Consider some quotation from the Esquire article declaring Rihanna the Sexist Woman Alive (2011).
She grabs her own radiant ass--she handles it, offers it--like it's a rump roast. She squats and spreads her legs, settles a hand between them, where it stays. Caresses her breasts. She masturbates a dancer with the help of cane. She pretends to go down on the keyboardist.This dude is not going to get high marks for his prose poetry, but he does capture the essence of the phenomenon. She is the next closest thing to a Porn Queen dancing at a strip joint. Like I said a moment ago: This is a Pisces woman at her naughty, nasty, bad worst.
Rihanna doesn't really dance... Altogether it amounts to choreographed oozing.
She picks a member of the audience to have simulated sex with. She guides the subject over to the platform in the middle of the stage. She commands the subject to lie back. She straddles the subject. She grinds. This part is not simulated.
... She is the indisputable champion of carnal pop. At this moment, in this room, she is the essence of Fuck.
As reserved, wholesome, conservative, and retrained as a Virgo woman is, that's how exhibitionist, dissolute, sensual and carnal a Pisces woman is going to be. It is a perfect Matter-Antimatter dichotomy.
Grant that this is a relatively extreme case, but it is hyperbole that makes a very fine point.
I still find it bizarre and offensive that we polar opposites attract one another as powerfully as we do, but I cannot deny that we do. Perhaps it is because we Virgos are not quite as wholesome as we pretend to be, and the Pisces are not quite the sensual party animals they pretend to be. Perhaps we are just trying to balance-out by combining our strengths. I don't know...
Ben Roethlisberger (a Pisces) was reportedly relieved to be busted by the Comish (who is himself a Pisces guy) because it relieved him of the obligation of being BIG BEN: The hardest drinking, rootenist-tootenist, most carnal bad-boy the world has ever known. He said he got caught up in an image he was never comfortable with, and this reputation forced him into things he was never comfortable with.
You have to wonder if Rihanna isn't in exactly the same spot Ben Roethisberger was at this point in her career. Perhaps she isn't quite the carnal monstrosity she pretends to be, but she is caught in a game of "Can you top this!"
Maybe not. Oh well, it was just a thought.
