Their astrological compatibility ratings are averagely good, with the communication rating higher than the other ratings. In their synastry, Seal's Sun-Uranus opposition is tightly connected with Heidi Klum's AS-DS axis, the relationship axis, and reveals strong closeness. The husband's Sun is often found on the wife's Descendant, or in her 7th house. This synastry shows instinctive originality (Uranus on the Ascendant), charm and ease of contact (Sun on the Descendant).
Furthermore, there are many soft aspects, often mutual, which strengthen their impact, such as the following pairs of planets or angles: Venus and MC, Venus and Sun, Venus and Moon, Mercury and Sun, Jupiter and Mars. Warmth and affection are salient features, as well as a good understanding of each other's needs. There is also a sextile between Mars (Heidi) and Venus (Seal), a guarantee of great sexual chemistry.
However, along with these assets, two types of forces challenge and undermine the couple's harmony. In both charts, there is a tense mutual aspect between Pluto and the partner's Moon. Pluto is the planet of instinct of domination, and the Moon, that of spontaneous emotions. The Pluto square Moon aspect shows that there is a potential danger of irritation, touchiness, and conflicts cropping up over trivialities. Indeed, squares are the most difficult aspect to deal with, since oppositions may be turned into complementarity. It is important to note that these mutual squares affect crucial houses, with Seals's Moon in the 5th house (house of love), and Heidi's 10th house (house of destiny and career).
In addition to these hard mutual aspects, Seal's Pluto squares Heidi's Sun. In her natal chart, she has a Sun-Moon conjunction. The Sun and Pluto share the particularity of being active and authoritarian forces. Therefore, the conflict between these two planets can be solved only if the owner of the Sun agrees to keep a low profile, which is not a natural thing for this planet. Since Pluto is an instinctive force, unconscious by nature, it is difficult to control it.
It seems obvious that these tense energies between Pluto, the Moon, and the Sun have destroyed their relationship after six or seven years, despite their numerous harmonious interaspects. The responsibility for the split – astrological responsibility, of course – is heavier on Seal's side than on Heidi's, owing to his outburst of anger or his Plutonian will to keep her under his thumb, even though hard mutual aspects between The Moon and Pluto are shared by both of them.
Let's look at the transits and directions affecting their themes during the second semester of 2011, just before they broke up: Heidi Klum's chart receives no tough transits. Only Neptune on the Descendant suggests indecisiveness or irrationality in the relationship, but this does not necessarily imply negative energies. The transit of Uranus to her Pluto is not significant, since it does not hit her personal planets. Astrologically speaking, it seems that, from Heidi's point of view, the split was already on the agenda before 2011, because nothing striking was active during this last semester before the official separation. As if Heidi had anticipated the change and seized the opportunity of their last quarrel.
In Seal's chart, the most important transit is a Moon-Uranus square, which started in April 2011 and lasted the whole year. Simultaneously, Neptune made a conjunction with his Sun in the 8th house, the Sun being in opposition with Uranus in the birth chart.
In the chart of males, Moon-Uranus squares often indicate a jolt or a break-up with the wife. Indeed, the Moon represents firstly the mother, then the wife, and lastly, the home. As for the transit of Neptune on the Sun in the 8th house, it points to a need for change as well as a mystical aspiration to transform oneself and to remodel one's intimate realm. In Seal's chart, the split with Heidi was very obvious and quick. Looking at the symbolic directions of that period, progressed Saturn squared the Moon, and concurrently, progressed Neptune was in conjunction with the Moon. This is therefore the confirmation that the target was the Moon, i.e. the wife.
