A huge congratulations to Rihanna and Rakim (aka ASAP Rocky) who have recently revealed that they are expecting their first child together. As baby bump photos filter across the internet I thought it was high-time to look at Rihanna’s and Rakim’s birth chart to see what kind of celebrity parents they’re likely to be.
What can astrology tell us about the kind of mother Rihanna will be?
Rihanna really is a warrior princess of the celebrity world. She has her Moon and Venus closely conjoining her Aries Ascendant, meaning she’s not afraid of standing on her own two feet, or standing-up for what she believes to be right. The Moon and Venus are the two major feminine principles in our birth charts, they are receptive, nurturing and place emphasis on human connection. When these planets are in Aries in a females chart, the nature of the warrior spills out into their mothering style. Rhianna will be fiercely protective over her offspring, she will raise her child to be strong and to think for themselves. Parenting to Aries Moon Mamas has a bit of a ‘tough-love’ quality to it. They put their energy into raising children to be strong and resilient so that they will thrive when Mum is no longer around to have their back. Think a lioness with her cub here!
It’s definitely worth noting that Rhianna’s Aries Moon and Venus is in the 12th house (of Pisces) square Neptune (ruler of Pisces) and this will certainly factor into her parenting style. This placement heightens Rihanna’s creative, intuitive and psychic faculties considerably. Also, with Neptune on her MC she projects an alluring and hypnotic quality; I’ve not seen her live but I can imagine many people consider her mesmerising to watch. I find that people with this configuration are also incredibly ‘easy to identify with’. They have an innate ability to empathise and mirror people and so they’re able to connect with people on a very intimate level. They are very good at creating space for others so that they feel ‘seen’ and ‘heard’. As a mother this denotes intuition and compassion beyond measure. Rihanna will bond very deeply with her child and be very good at anticipating what her child needs. There’s no barriers with Neptune, Rihanna will live and breathe parenthood, every joy and every pain the child experiences will be internalised and felt deeply by the mother. An intense and powerful bond is likely to form.
What about A$AP Rocky’s birth chart – what kind of Dad will he be?
In sharp contrast to Rihanna’s warrior-mama approach, we have a Libran with Cancer Moon Dad to balance the energies. A$AP will be nurturing, a first class home-maker and natural diplomat. He is an extremely family-orientated man, who will take great pride in his partner and offspring, as emphasised by a warm and loving Leo Venus. A$AP has sufficient fire in his chart to give him the ‘umph’ that Rihanna would look for in a partner, but on the whole he will be conflict adverse and seek to provide a stable homelife that’s out of the public eye. It’s fascinating to watch Cancer Moon men when they have something to nurture and protect, they grow ten feet – it’s like they’ve found their calling. Rihanna might joke that he’s the ‘soft touch’ of the two but together they provide a wonderful balance of parental energies.
What challenges will Rihanna face in her role as mother?
As I said Neptune and the 12th house factor heavily in Rhianna’s chart and with her Moon and Venus featuring in this configuration her experience of relationships and nurturing are going to be influenced by this energy. The 12th house is concerned with that which is taken out of the public eye and which happens behind closed doors. Positively it has connotations with imagination and healing but negatively it denotes difficult experiences and ‘skeletons in the closet’. Similarly, whilst Neptune is spiritual and creative it is also the planet of escapism. With the square to Neptune from her Aries Moon and Venus it’s possible that Rihanna’s own early experience of being nurtured was impacted by drugs, alcohol or betrayal in some way. Rihanna likely faced difficulties in her childhood, but when these parts of the chart are activated via pregnancy it’s a spiritual opportunity to further process past events, to break the cycles and release karmic baggage. It may be challenging but this provides individual’s with an opportunity to ‘do it differently.’ So I think the biggest challenge Rhianna will encounter as a mother is facing ‘ghosts from the past.’
What do you think will be Rihanna’s top astro Mama quality?
Rihanna has so many beautiful mothering qualities. I love the feisty approach to parenting Aries Moon mothers have, they just do it their way and to hell with convention. I think that’s quite refreshing as our mothering styles are as individual as we are and it’s not a one type fits all. Aries mothers definitely pave the way in this regard.
Also, with the Pisces archetype so strong in her nurturing style, I think Rihanna is likely to build a really strong, almost psychic, connection with her children. She will have to find the right balance between compassion and tough-love but I think this enabler her to make her children feel nurtured but not molly-coddled. Transiting Neptune will also be conjunct her North Node when she gives birth, this denotes a strong spiritual connection whereby the child will help the mother move toward healing and truth.
