The Latest Accessory: Billionaire Boyfriends


Well let’s face it, billionaire boyfriends have never been out of style, but all of a sudden these elusive men are popping up on the celebrity-watch radar as they pair up with some of Hollywood’s most desirable ladies. Always a trail-blazer, gorgeous Virgo Salma Hayek was the first to make news with the announcement this winter that she was expecting a child with her new fiance, French business mogul Francois-Henri Pinault, a Gemini. Both Virgo and Gemini are ruled by the planet of communication, Mercury, and it is an intellectual spark that united these two. Salma’s moon sign is Aries, which gives her a fiesty, independant spirit and her fiance’s moon sign is either Pisces or Aries. If it is Aries, then they share the same emotional nature, which can be very helpful in a relationship, and if it is Pisces, this is also a stong connection, as it balances with Salma’s Virgo Sun, the opposite sign of Pisces. But it is Francois-Henri’s Pluto, planet of passion, conjunct Salma’s Sun that really bonds these two at the deepest level. They are expecting their baby, sure to be a little Leo, any day now.

This spring came the announcement that everyone’s favorite alcoholic T.V. mom, Kirsten Cohen from “The O.C.”, played in real life by Scorpio Kelly Rowan, had managed to find herself an even better catch than Sandy Cohen, Canadian billionaire David Thomson. According to Forbes, press-shy Thomson is the 10th richest man in the world. Not bad.

Then, after her May breakup with playboy Scorpio Owen Wilson, Aries Kate Hudson was seen vacationing in Paris in June with L.A. billionaire Scorpio Ron Burkle. In a very Scorpio way, both of these gentlemen have quite a reputation with the ladies. Kate also spends lots of time with another Scorpio, Matthew McConaughey, her frequent romantic comedy partner. This one smells like rebound to me, and in fact Kate is already rumored to be spending time with Capricorn comedian Dax Shepard, the star of her dictorial debut short film which is being shot now.

And most recently, Virgo Cameron Diaz, who has thrown herself voraciously into the dating pool since her January breakup with Justin Timberlake, was seen flirting and dining with English billionaire and fellow Virgo David de Rothschild. A look at the astrological connection between these two shows SERIOUS sparks. Not only are they both Virgo, and so thus have the same approach to the world, that of a grounded healer and helper, but depending on what time he was born, it looks as though David has the same moon sign as Cameron as well, Taurus. If this is the case, these two are truly kindred spirits as they embody similar energy and similar life path, to build a solid, stable life that is positive and constructive for themseves and others around them. Even if David’s moon is in Gemini rather than Taurus, this is not a deal breaker, as Cameron loves Air sign energy in her men, as can be seen by her history with Aquarius men, including Matt Dillon, Justin Timberlake and Kelly Slater. Both Cameron and David have Mercury, the ruling planet of Virgo, in Leo in a tight conjunction. This gives them their star quality, so to speak, and also means that together they have a lot to talk about. Though Cameron has been very vocal about her “commitment-phobia”, she seemed a bit down after the breakup with Justin and David could be just the person to cheer her up, and with his Jupiter conjunct her ascendant in Cancer, she can rest assured the she makes him feel wonderful as well.

And no article about the love affair between Hollywood starlets and uber-rich men would be complete without paying homage to the previous generation of high-gloss couples. In 1991, Hollywood royalty Jane Fonda, a Saggitarius, wed media-mogul and conservationist billionaire Ted Turner, a Scorpio. There is usually an insane amount of attraction between Sags and Scorpios, often with disasterous results. These two divorced in 2001. In 2006, Aries Ellen Barkin was divorced by her husband of six years, cosmetics billionaire Capricorn Ron Perelman. Aries are independent and free-spirited and Capricorns are serious and business-minded; relationships between these two signs are not reccomended. And last, but most certainly not least, there is the golden pairing of legendary beauty Scorpio Grace Kelly and her husband, Gemini Prince Rainier III of Monaco. These two remained happily married and the rest is fairy-tale history.

There does not necessarily seem to be a lot of rhyme or reason, astrologically speaking, in these pairings, though the signs of Scorpio, Aries, Gemini and Virgo have been popping up a lot. Scorpio is intense and private, which always bodes well where money is concerned. Aries are very spirited and playful, not status-hungry at all, which is a reason others, of all financial backgrounds are attracted to them. Geminis are creative and innovative, and whether or not they are born into their money, they have a knack for visionary investments. And Virgos are caring, prudent and rational, getting where they are through careful cultivation. The two richest men in the world, both self-made, are Bill Gates, a Scorpio, and Warren Buffett, a Virgo.
