Beyoncé & JAY-Z's Astrological Compatibility Is Unusual, But Here's Why It Works

Beyoncé and JAY-Z should be president and first gentleman. Now that I've gotten that out of the way, I'd like to take a dive into their astrological charts, because there is no couple I can think of that holds more mysterious charisma than these two. Beyoncé and JAY-Z's astrological compatibility has always had me scratching my head, because Bey is a Virgo, and Jay's a Sagittarius. This is not your traditionally compatible couple by astrological standards, so I want to know exactly what makes these two work. They've definitely been through a lot together (I mean, we've all seen Lemonade from start to finish at least six times, right?), so what exactly is the glue that keeps these two together, other than love? I'm talking about the COSMIC glue, you know, like the aspects between his Venus sign and her Mars sign, or the compatibility between their moon signs. Really scientific stuff, you get it.

These two are honestly one of my favorite celeb couples, and I'm happy to get the chance to write about them, because in spite of everything they've been through and in spite of anything astrology or the public has to say about their bond, they really put the work in to make it work. And at the end of the day, that's what determines a relationships' success.

Virgo is a mutable earth sign, meaning they're practical, flexible, reserved and grounded in all their dealings. Sagittarius is a mutable fire sign, meaning they are also flexible, but that they're expressive, outgoing and energetic in their lives. While the two aren't a traditionally compatible couple, they have the capacity to make it work because of their mutable energy. They're both able to accommodate one another's differences in the way they operate, not to mention Virgo helps to ground Sagittarius in their never ending quest to explore, and Sagittarius helps Virgo not to limit their thinking to just practical concerns.

Moon Signs: Scorpio and Libra

Bey has her moon sign in Scorpio, and Jay has his moon sign in Libra. Scorpio comes directly after Libra in the zodiac, which indicates that these two have some powerful karmic lessons to learn from one another on an emotional level. Whenever two signs live right next to one another in the zodiac, it shows that there are lessons in this lifetime that weren't learned in the last one, and that feeling of destiny is sometimes enough to keep two signs together that wouldn't ordinarily fit.

Not to mention, Libra is about partnership, and Scorpio is about merging, and learning to trust others. The lesson in this relationship is that no matter what, these two will accept one another in spite of any flaws they may have, and learn how to compromise and forgive one another whenever necessary.

Rising Signs: Virgo and Libra

Bey's rising sign is in Libra (aligning it with JAY-Z's moon sign) and JAY's rising sign is in Virgo, aligning it with Bey's sun sign. You get all that? Basically what this means is the Beyoncé will continue to grow more and more into the qualities that JAY-Z has within him. A more natural understanding of one another will grow between them, although with one partner's rising sign being Libra, and the other's moon sign being Libra, their connection has always been marked by charm.

The only thing to look out for is that this combination can lead to an avoidance of conflict, which can become problematic as things being left unsaid can block intimacy. But it seems their music is taking care of that. Over time however, their moon sign synastry will encourage them to work through their avoidance of conflict for the sake of the relationship. Overall, it will be their willingness to be open and honest about their fears, concerns and worries that will allow this relationship to flourish and withstand the test of time.
