Astrological compatibility: Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale
Gwen Stefani is an American singer, author, composer, and fashion designer. She started in 1987 as the singer of the band No Doubt, developed her career as a soloist in 2004, then went back with No Doubt in 2008. She married the musician, singer and grunge guitar player Gavin Rossdale, with whom she has two sons, born in 2006 and in 2008. Gavin Rossdale has been a member of the Bush band and sold 15 million albums. Then he continued his career with various bands and composed several film soundtracks, including that of Terminator 3, "Rise of the Machines". He is also an actor. In 2009, Gwen and Gavin's Google popularity hits are respectively 1,2 million and 200,000 per month.
Their compatibility estimates (Gavin Rossdale's time of birth is unknown) are averagely good, and warrant a relationship that will last as long as they want it to. Indeed, it is only with ratings below 30% that one may reasonably question the longevity of a love story. However, Gwen and Gavin's communication rating is weak. The aspects responsible for it are the square from Gavin's Jupiter to Gwen's Descendant, on the relation axis, and Gwen's Mercury-Uranus conjunction. In addition, there are two other tense aspects indirectly involved: Gwen's Jupiter square Gavin's Moon, and their Venus-Saturn in mutual hard aspects.
In plain English, this means that what Gavin says may be out of step with Gwen's approach of communication, which she deems smooth and natural. On the other hand, Gwen's behaviour may come across as immoderate or sententious, which hurts Gavin's sensitivity. With Venus and Saturn in square and in opposition, there may be periods of time when affection fades away and gives place to indifference, whenever these interaspects are activated by transits or by progressions. Usually, Saturn-Venus hard aspects do not cause a break, but make the relationship last painfully, until the situation becomes irremediably damaged, and the couple splits.
However, the couple's synastry has several assets: the opposition of their complementary Moons is all the more auspicious that its is strengthened by Gavin's Jupiter in conjunction with Gwen's Moon, even though at the same time, the square of Gwen's Jupiter may tone down this positive energy. Gavin's Venus-Mars conjunction on Gwen's Ascendant indicates affective and physical closeness. In addition, Gwen's Mars sextile Gavin's Sun is a booster.
Although the overall diagnosis is a mixed one, the couple have every possibility to experience a happy relationship, if they decide to overcome these potential hurdles.
