For Tom Brady, his marriage to the end zone is a good thing.
In a windswept confessional-style Instagram video, the iconic footballer, who boasts a jaw-dropping jawline, an elderly female fan base and a legendary career, announced his retirement yet again.
The decision is the latest in a line of dramatic changes for the pigskin Leo Pope. In October 2022, Brady and Cancer wife Gisele Bündchen announced their divorce after 13 years together.
Rumors of the end swirled as early as 2K22 when the Brazilian babe left Brady in Tampa to decamp at the couple’s Costa Rican compound after an “epic fight.” Various accounts blamed the hiatus and subsequent breakup on Brady’s decision to retire from football and end family life. Bündchen was later seen lawyering up and spiritually cleaning her SUV.
Hell hath no fury like a dual water sign scorned, folks.
Both Brady and Bündchen, who married in 2009 and share three children together, have released public statements asking for privacy as they navigate their new separation, expressing their gratitude for each other. And commitment to co-parenting has been expressed.
As different as night and day
In astrology, the Sun is the ultimate sign of the self and the Bradys and Bundchens are in the not so compatible signs of Leo and Cancer. To illustrate just how different Brady’s and Bundchen’s sun signs are, consider that Leo is ruled by the Sun and Cancer by the Moon, quite literally night and day.
Leo wants to shine/show off and Cancer wants to nestle/retreat which can make a mutually beneficial home life a challenge. Did the stars always spell divorce for this golden couple? Read on to know more.
Tom Brady, who turns 45 on August 3, has a Leo Sun and an Aries Moon, making him a double fire and all athlete. Leo needs to shine and Aries needs to work, meaning Brady’s career choice is a perfect fit. Still, the lesson for Leos is to find the love and attention they need and want in close circles rather than in wider fields. An Aries Moon is the sign of someone who has spent many, many lives at war and is born into an age to lay down their weapons and take up a cause that requires their energy but they Doesn’t compromise his life, maybe Brady will learn a lesson. As a result of its division, the heart
The star quarterback, who has a net worth of $250 million, announced his retirement from football in February 2022 and 40 days later with the news that he had signed to play with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Why? For a player of Brady’s stature, there’s a real fear that if he can’t go to war ie play ball and watch the world, he’ll cease to exist, suggesting that guts and glory. Safety and marital comfort are more important.
Due to the fixed, fiery nature of his Sun and the primordial energy of his elemental Moon, Brady knows what he wants and will defend it assertively, boldly, and fiercely, even when compromised. Fun times.
As astrologer Alice Sparkly Kate astutely notes with Brady’s Sun/Moon combination, “You expect not just love and loyalty, but adoration all the time. It’s not that you believe you necessarily have to.” Better than others but don’t see why you should submit to the desires of your heart for others when they have the freedom to do what they want. A major conflict in your life is total obedience to satisfy the desires of the self. and the tension between the need for social acceptance.

Double the water
Born July 20, 1980, Bündchen has a Cancer-based dual with her Sun and her Moon in fixed-tide Scorpio, a combination that rules an interdependent relationship, a solid home, and both. Recommends. As Bündchen revealed in “Vanity Fair” in 2009, “My idea of it is that you have a partner who has your back. When I’m weak, you can be strong. When I’m strong. If so, you can be vulnerable. That’s what marriage is, I believe. When you love someone, you want to grow with them, share with them, the same values, the same feelings about things, a Like wanting to share beliefs. It seems that the deviation of these shared norms was at the heart of the couple’s split.
The determined quality of Bündchen’s Moon and the empathetic voice of her Sun indicate a person who is willing to go to great lengths to maintain their relationships and support their partner. But make no mistake, he is no martyr, no pushover. Bündchen takes the promises as an oath and she clearly sees the role she has played and the sacrifices she has made. As she told Elle magazine, “I’ve done my share, which is. [to] Be there for [Tom]. I moved to Boston, and I focused on creating a cocoon and a loving environment for my kids to grow up and support him and his dreams there… At this point in my life, I think That I have done a good job. On it.” It seems that Bündchen is at peace with who she is as a wife, mother and support system, perhaps playing that role without revenge ending a game for her and Brady. It’s too much.
Curtains or Compromise?
Brady and Bündchen are a couple who have navigated unpleasant emotional seasons throughout their relationship. Just months after they started dating, Brady’s ex Bridget Monaghan revealed she was pregnant with his child, giving birth to son Jake later that year. In keeping with her sun sign’s motherly aspect, Bündchen sees Jack as her own child and frames Brady’s handling of her motherhood as a testament to her strength and perseverance. That grace under kerfuffle energy has echoed in Brady and Bündchen’s coupling style until now.
In addition to Jack, the couple are parents to son Benjamin and daughter Vivian. Being the dual water mom that she is, Bündchen insisted on a water birth at home for both of them. In one of the most detailed Cancer Sun/Scorpio Moon births I’ve ever seen, Bündchen said of the experience, “I felt that Kali, the Hindu goddess of time, creation, destruction and power, was invincible. Feeling overwhelmed. I can chew rocks in half! I can split mountains in two! I can split oceans! When a child is born, a mother takes a step back. A part of her. Dies. It was also the death of self, ego, putting myself and my needs first.
Bündchen’s birth chart, particularly her Sun and Moon, supports her intense and sacrificial view of motherhood while Brady favors individualism and going one’s own way at all costs. Bündchen’s Scorpio Moon influence indicates a powerful and persuasive person who exploits emotions, values commitment and keeps a careful track of broken promises and perceived betrayals.
In that sense, it’s easy to understand Bündchen’s anger at Brady’s decision to forgo retirement in an effort to play the game. For him, pain is multi-point; As a maternal Cancer, she is concerned about the well-being of her body and mind, obviously, “Obviously, I have my concerns—it’s a very violent game, and I have children and I want to They will be more present.” It seems that in the end, Brady’s ambitions proved important to Bündchen’s needs.
Moons of Mars
Interestingly, both Bündchen and Brady’s Moon signs are ruled by Mars. In astrology the Moon represents our emotional introversion and attachment style while the energy of Mars is willful, belligerent and dead on desire. This suggests that for Bündchen and Brady, getting their needs met is an intense, and very uncompromising, pursuit. A pair of Mars Moons in a relationship is associated with intense emotions, primal hair-pulling, soul-dissolving sex, explosive fights and a serious ability to transform in and through their partnership.
After finalizing their divorce, it seems like the two of them have finally surrendered and come to terms with their differences, which gives me hope for their next chapter. While they’ve called it up to the couple, I believe the space will allow them to accept and celebrate each other as separate selves, a facility that will allow them to succeed as co-parents. It will help to be. Divorce may also serve to equally redistribute some of the child care responsibilities that Bündchen appears to be handling.
The end zone
In Brady and Bündchen, you have two very strong, very resilient people with very different approaches to life, love, parenting, and partnership. We hope that in their amicable decision to divorce, and Brady’s recent choice to retire, each is on the path to personal improvement and ultimate happiness.
