Katie Holmes was born on December 18, 1978. This makes her a Child of Jupiter with Jupiter in Leo. The strongest pairings in Astrology are between people born under the same Ruling Planet or between people whose Ruling Planets conjoin each other. Katie Holmes’ Ruling Planet Jupiter forms a nearly exact conjunction to Tom Cruise’s Moon in the zodiac sign of Leo – the sign of arts, fame, and entertainment. It’s a powerful conjunction made all the more powerful when you include Tom Cruise’s north node in Leo. So what happened? Why didn’t things work out? The Moon is the planet of hearth and home. Tom wanted a stay-at-home Mom for his children and probably for himself as well. Jupiter is the “anywhere but here” planet in Astrology. People born under this planet are famous for falling in love with long distances. They yearn for experiences that broaden their horizons and don’t diminish them. Children of Jupiter enjoy visiting exotic locales and immersing themselves in world politics, culture, and esoteric beliefs. Just ask Brad Pitt - who happens to share the exact same birthday as Katie Holmes. Brad Pitt was equally bored with the stay-at-home Hollywood Power couple scene that Jennifer Aniston was into and his abrupt departure from their marriage was also – like Katie Holmes’s – totally unexpected and from out of left field. Children of Jupiter need a higher purpose in life and this is what Angelina Jolie gave Brad Pitt by getting him involved with her humanitarian missions. She opened his world, raised his consciousness, and gave him a higher purpose in life. It’s why he fell madly in love with her. If you’re going to date or marry a Child of Jupiter then don’t fence them in. Explore your world – both physically and metaphysically – and they will always be right by your side.
