How do two icons make a marriage last for more than 20 years? Astrology has plenty to teach us about it! Find out the story the stars tell, about how The Fresh Prince Will Smith himself and The Red Table’s Jada Pinkett Smith have made their love last.
Will Smith has historically been not only one of the coolest guys on the silver screen as well as the television screen, but at certain times in his career he has been one of the highest paid actors in Hollywood.
This is a guy who knows what he wants because in the 90s, while married to another woman, he concluded that Jada Pinkett Smith was the one for him.
For years, Will and Jada have been subject to rumors of unusual marital practices and divorce. This has never phased the couple who have been together for over two decades.
As a relationship astrologer, I can see why these two have held strong for such a long time despite criticism of their love.
With Will’s sweet and charming Libra Sun and Jada’s no-nonsense Virgo nature, Will is okay with going out of his way to make sure Jada’s specific needs are met.
To better understand what is going on in the relationship of Will and Jada, we need to first delve into the elements within both parties’ charts.
Overview of Will Smith’s Birth Chart
After only a quick glance at Will’s chart I can tell you that this is a man who is just simply built to be charming and sociable.
Will has a magnetic personality that comes across in both his on-screen ventures as well as in his music career. Considering he has been in at least 54 movies; it makes sense that he has had to utilize this natural wit to make it so far in the industry.
Born on September 25, 1968, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Will Smith is a silver tongued Libra Sun, a talkative Gemini Rising, and a deeply feeling Scorpio Moon.
In astrology, Libra is the seventh sign and it governs relationships and partnerships as well as bringing people together.
As a Libra Sun (the Sun sign represents your willpower and purpose, Will Smith has an outgoing and peaceful temperament. He just is a naturally likeable guy who effortlessly brings people together.
The Sun placed in Will’s fifth house of leisure, romance, and children represents a man who is not only a fun partner to have, but also a great dad. This also explains his penchant for acting since the 5th house rules dramatic displays and theater.
Because Venus, the planet of love and beauty, is the planetary ruler of his Sun sign, Will likes to create beautiful and lasting relationships with others. This is the placement of a guy who wants to assume the best of everyone around him.
Having a Venus ruled planet in the 5th house is a wonderful placement because it accentuates all of Will’s positive and gregarious qualities.
The 5th house also rules the creation of music and this is makes sense, when one considers that Will Smith has been making music for nearly 30 years now.
When it comes to relationships, I’ve found that Libra Suns are all in when it comes to their partnerships. Instead of getting a wandering eye, his Libra Sun with his Scorpio Moon make him a dedicated and protective partner.
Because the 5th house deals with children, it is no surprise to me that Will has taken the children that he has with Jada with him in front of the cameras and that both of his children have lucrative music careers as well.
But when you look at Will’s chart, his Libra Sun is not the only way to see his overall nature. Will’s Gemini Rising speaks to the lens that the world sees him through and adds a flavor to everything else in his chart.
Geminis, the Zodiac’s messengers, embody the nature of quick and efficient Mercury. The planet of communication and wordplay lends itself to Will’s energetic and buzzy exterior.
When it comes to Will Smith’s birth chart, I believe his Gemini rising makes him a connector between people and a collector of information.
In relationships, his intellectual nature (Gemini Rising) will gravitate towards partners who fulfill his need for intellectual stimulation and great conversation.
However, with Will’s water Moon (emotional nature) in passionate Scorpio, he may struggle with showing his darker feelings to the outside world. Instead of talking too much about his emotions he would rather channel his passions into his work.
At the same time, Venus in Libra (the way he loves) makes him a prince charming type to those he partners with.
When Venus, the planet of romance, in a connected air sign like Libra, his one-on-one partnerships are likely the best place for him to show true love to others.
I have found that individuals with Venus in Libra are better people overall when they are in a long term committed relationship, because this is where their love nature shines the brightest.
With Venus placed in his fifth house of fun and leisure, falling in love with someone who themselves is a creator, as well as someone who can have a lot of fun with him, is a big time goal for Will.
Overview of Jada Pinkett Smith’s Birth Chart
When I first glanced at Jada Pinkett Smith’s birth chart, it became obvious why Will Smith pursued her the way that he did, to make her his wife and the mother of his children.
Jada is multitalented and a beautiful woman, but she also is very meticulous and intelligent as evidenced by her many avenues of expression for herself.
I can tell that she is a wonderful and brainy woman who appears to be a great match for Will in many ways.
Born on September 18, 1971, in Baltimore, Maryland, Jada Pinkett Smith is a detail-oriented Virgo Sun and also a Virgo Moon.
In astrology, Virgo is the sixth sign in the Zodiac. It is represented by mutable earth, meaning it desires solid and practical changes rather than remaining fixed in one direction.
As a Virgo Sun, this indicates that Jada has an interest in improving the environment around her, in consistent routines, word play, intellectual pursuits, and she is likely proper and conventional.
Ruled by Mercury, Jada is characterized by using her mind to make sense of the world over any emotional nature. She looks to improve everything she touches and this is the gift that Will is likely experiencing.
In addition, due to her earthy, practical nature, I’ve found that Virgo women appear to embody perfection to those around them even if they feel there is room for improvement in themselves.
The ruler of her Sun and Moon is Mercury and this makes her a very cerebral person. And her mercury is also in Virgo! Talk about specializing in one area, Jada.
Being ruled by Mercury, this would indicate that words and word play are important to her. This makes a lot of sense, because not only does Jada run the popular podcast The Red Table, she also has a singing career that has flown under the radar.
And with Jada’s Moon resting in the mutable earth sign of Virgo, this indicates that her emotional nature is practical and has much to do with improvement. For example, Jada may not get as emotional about sad movies as she gets about not feeling like she is doing well enough in life.
In astrology, Virgo is the sign that offers itself to be of service to those around it. It wants very much to be of assistance to those around it.
With Jada’s Moon and Sun urging her to learn and really engage her mind with fleshed out concepts, she will gravitate towards someone who would be stimulating to this part of her.
She wants someone who will be able to engage with her mentally while being a similarly helpful person to those around them.
With Jada’s Venus (what she loves) and Mars (how she loves) both in air signs, Libra and Aquarius, Jada would be an intellectual lover and a mind connection is important for her to connect properly.
When their Venus, the planet of love, in a friendly air sign like Libra, I’ve found that women gravitate towards partners who are loyal and friendly. They gravitate towards the innovative nature and the lovely partnering qualities that Libra brings to the table.
At the same time, with Mars in Aquarius, this shows that she is comfortable with some healthy distance in the relationship and that if her partner had to go away to work, she would likely be okay with this for a while.
When Mars, the planet of action, is in Aquarius, the sign of community, this can mean that a lot of her drive and passion is activated when she is around quirky and individualistic people with a unique aura.
Having a key planet in Libra and another in Aquarius leads me to believe that Jada enjoys that which is beautiful and also that which is sociable.
Overview of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith’s Relationship
The media has become so desperate to find dirt on these two that they actually came up with fabrications saying that Will and Jada were getting divorced on multiple occasions. Will and Jada have always fired back, saying that they are not and will not get divorced. In fact, Will has gone on the record saying that he has no plans to ever leave Jada and that she could never do anything bad enough to make him consider it.
As mentioned before, Will is a Libra Sun and Jada is a Virgo Sun. Despite the fact that they are neighboring signs, which don’t necessarily get along every time, these signs are contra-antiscia which essentially means, they are able to ‘see’ one another.
Not all neighboring signs get along so well, but their signs get along better than most for that reason.
A closer inspection into both charts shows that even outside of their acceptable Sun sign compatibility, they get along very well for other reasons found in the chart.
For example, their Moon signs have a sextile relationship with one another, meaning that there is a certain amount of mutual understanding between these two people.
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith’s Sun Sign Compatibility
You wouldn’t necessarily think Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith would be a positive match for one another due to their neighboring Sun signs.
Because Libra (Will) is an air sign and Virgo (Jada) is an Earth sign, their personalities naturally challenge one another in some ways.
As a Libra Sun, Will values partnership, loving relationships, and sociability. He is most comfortable in a relationship that allows him to show his full spectrum of love and caring for his partner.
Jada is a Virgo Sun which indicates that she is pragmatic, practical, and helpful, and she values a partner that allows her to take life seriously when it is called for.
In their relationship, Will is the more relaxed and easy-going one, and so it’s important that he understand that to Jada life simply demands more from her at times.
Virgo is a perfectionistic sign and so I could see Jada believing that she could use improvement in any area in her own life and Will would counter this by saying she is always perfect the way she is.
I also believe that Will feels good when he is with Jada, because she offers stability and structure when Will needs to come back down to Earth, and having a solid place to return to would be a great comfort to him.
I can actually see where the air quality of Will can stimulate Jada’s excitement and where Jada’s earthy Virgo qualities find understanding in Will. Will actually has four less core planets in Virgo which would give him a leg up in understanding Jada’s thought process.
If I could give Will and Jada advice based on their Sun signs, I would advise them to stay respectful of the differences between them because these differences are what make them strong.
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith’s Moon Sign Compatibility
In relationships, the Moon signs are how the couple connects on a deeper emotional level. A couple with good moon sign compatibility tends to be secure.
As Scorpio (Will) and Virgo (Jada) Moons, these two have a really nice flow between them emotionally.
What I love about this match is that although Will has other factors that make him come off as worry-free, his Scorpio Moon indicates that there is something within him that either now, or in the past, has caused him pain and he likely has residual issues.
The lovely part is that Jada’s Virgo Moon can look upon this pain and acknowledge the depth of how Will may be hurting and still be able to offer him support and assistance.
Will’s Moon is in Scorpio which is ruled by the Eighth house of the Zodiac. This is a house of the resources of others and it is also a house of secrets and an emotional nature. He feels most at home when he is experiencing intense emotional connection.
Jada’s Virgo Moon causes her to have a practical emotional nature, and she likely feels most at home when she is being useful and getting small tasks out of the way. This is the Moon sign of the ‘putterer’ and so you can be sure that Jada is always finding a new way to stay busy.
Jada feels most like herself when she is working on something, whether that is the house, a project, or a relationship.
When you bring the Scorpio Moon and Virgo Moon together, you have two people who can really get to the bottom of major issues and this leads to creation of a brand new, beautiful thing that has risen from the ashes.
These two have an appreciation for the hard parts of life together. They recognize that as nice as it would be for things to be perfect, they aren’t. As a result, these two can face anything that comes at them because they have no illusions regarding life’s ease or difficulty.
As two of the Zodiac’s deep divers in emotional realms, Will likely has a deep need to go down into his own emotional depths with Jada by his side. And it is Jada who will remind him that there are things to do back up on the surface so they can’t stay for long here, and that is exactly what Will needs.
Overall, I believe Will and Jada’s Moon signs are the glue that keeps them holding on for decades. They recognize that life just isn’t perfect but together they can make it as perfect as possible.
I would give this pair a 9 out of 10 in general astrological compatibility.
My advice to Will and Jada is to respect how the other needs to grow and change and to say to one another that even if they do change, they will still be there at the end of the day ready to embrace the other.
Learn how to balance the seriousness and fun in life because living exclusively in either realm is a way to end the relationship.
Always recognize the beauty in the flaws of the other.
