Astrological compatibility: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West
N.B: when this article has been written, we thought that the time of birth which has been sent to us by email for Kanye West was reliable. In May 2015, we have found that it was not. So the issues regarding the astrological houses of Kanye West in this article must not be read.
On the one hand, here is Kim Kardashian, a star who masters the art of staging her life and of turning her most trivial actions into gold. On the other hand, Kanye West, a rapper, but also a songwriter, somewhat a designer, who is, above all, known for his categorical opinions. Good news, the pair which fuels all the tabloids is getting married in May 2014. Only the people living on a different planet can avoid hearing about it!
From an astrological point of view, are Kim Kardashian and Kanye West compatible? The answer is relatively positive, especially considering several resemblances in their charts which imply similar ways to approach life. But with a few reservations. Firstly, we note that between this Libra and this Gemini, communication is utterly important. It is the characteristic of Air signs, amplified by Jupiter for both of them, which gives them their burning obsession with celebrity. Moreover, Kanye West's tight Sun-Jupiter conjunction falls in Kim Kardashian's 7th House, the House describing the other one, the partner or the spouse. This is telling about the influence this Gemini exerts on Kim, which seems a good omen for their marriage.

However, this aspect may also have a downside in the long run, because in addition to the opposition of Kanye's Neptune, it forms a square with Kim's Venus in Virgo, who may feel that the partner's authority is inappropriate. Should the planets want to tell us that love is blind, they would not do otherwise! Therefore, beware of the illusions of various power which have already pervaded their couple...
There is also a square sent by Kanye's Moon to Kim's Ascendant. This may provoke a gap between their spontaneous reactions in a few unexpected situations. Kanye may also feel disoriented by Kim's Sagittarian exuberance.
Among several common traits, it is worth mentioning the Moon in Pisces. Although there is no superimposition, this feature heralds understanding and psychic bond. They understand one another better through emotions than through words, and they probably feel the need for intimacy or for symbiosis. We may find this analysis odd, given the way they reveal everything in public. But we must not forget that Pisces is a sign which tends towards universality. In other words, Kim and Kanye feel almost compelled to share their happiness with the masses, in some sort of infinite communion.
However, when it comes to holding intellectual dialogues, or to discuss any business, the energies are trickier, though stimulating. Indeed, Kanye's Mercury in Taurus is opposed to that of Kim, and more precisely, to Uranus in Scorpio. There may be small and quite quick conflicts when the chemistry does not work any more!
To conclude, Kim Kardashian is a genuine woman who conceals very well her Fire energy, almost masculine with Mars in the 12th House, still conjunct the Ascendant in Sagittarius. This sends us to the Jupiter dominant, ideally posited on the Midheaven; and bringing about the acknowledged and prosaic ambition which will never abandon her. Finally, pragmatic Venus in Virgo indicates that art, love, and business can blend together happily.
Kanye West is an extrovert Gemini with an extremely big ego. His artistic facets seem stronger than those of his wife-to-be. But since we are talking about love, it is necessary to emphasise those features, as far as he is concerned. Because to him, sexuality and sensuality are much more important than to most people: his tight Venus-Mars conjunction in Taurus suggests huge mundane needs. No wonder that he yields to the song of his mediatised mermaid, who pays so much attention to her curves and her femininity. Besides, her Venus in Virgo – another Earth sign – is highly compatible, even though there is no aspect with Kanye West's conjunction in Taurus. Therefore, one of the main links of this couple seems to be physical attraction.
In a nutshell, Kim and Kanye can rely on assets which, from an astrological viewpoint, are as obvious as the image they project of themselves onto the media. Nonetheless, the tricky issues to be watched are probably related to the reasons which had drawn them to one another: the risks stemming from a rather vacillating behaviour instead of a mature and rational interaction. The large number of planets they both have in Mutable mode (Gemini-Virgo-Sagittarius-Pisces) may cause instability in the long term. Tough transits concerning those mutable signs, particularly to their Moons in Pisces, ought to be dealt with with caution.
