We started the week off with some major celebs squashing some of Perez Hilton’s most beloved beefs: while Katy Perry quite literally extended (and sent) an olive branch to Taylor Swift, and we also had Cardi B and Nicki Minaj, the Queens of Rap, face-to-face at the Met Gala. The start of this week kicked off with the Sun in Taurus opposing Jupiter in Scorpio. A few things to note: These are both fixed signs—aka stubborn-ass energies. So, why’d the stars make a truce?
Jupiter is the planet of extravagance, indulgence, abundance, and overall posi-vibes. It’s taking a tour through secretive and transformative Scorpio until November 2018. This combo can bring depth, release, and breakthroughs. Nicki Minaj herself is an outspoken Sagittarius, whose ruling planet is Jupiter. A strong opposition to the Sun in thoughtful and practical Taurus could have paved a path to open and constructive dialogue between the two beauties.
As for KP and Tay Tay? Katy Perry is a Scorpio stellium (holy sex), she’s got a lot of influence from the mysterious water sign in her chart, and that combined with Jupiter’s positive influence could have urged her to make a move to clear the air. Why was Taylor so receptive after releasing diss track after diss track? She’s got a bit of Capricorn in her chart: This grounded energy and her Mercury in Capricorn, which rules her style of communication, could have urged her to make amends while the Sun is in Taurus.
While we all are craving that Cardi B/Nicki Minaj mashup and want to believe that there will be some long-lasting effects from these makeups, it’s likely that under this opposition the grass will appear greener than it really is. Sure, they might have apologized, but did they really mean it?
