Coleen Rooney vs Rebekah Vardy

The Battle of the WAGs

Staying with the theme of football, this week, there was an escalation in the dispute between Coleen Rooney and Rebekah Vardy on Wednesday, when the latter began a court action suing Coleen for defamation of character.  The two wives of high profile footballers were formerly good friends, until Coleen revealed last October that her investigations showed that Rebekah had leaked stories about her to the press.  Rebekah was pregnant at the time, and went into a deep depression, having her baby in December, resurfacing in February to speak about that.  The matter might have ended there…

Coleen Rooney

Coleen has her Sun in Aries, making her both a warrior and an initiator.  Her Sun trines Saturn, making her capable of controlled action, at the same time as her Aries impulsiveness. She has  her Moon square Venus, suggesting disputes with women, although we do not know how close this square is because we do not have her birth time.  Her Moon (females) also squares Pluto and the Nodal Axis, so there are multiple difficulties with females according to her birth chart.  With Mercury square Uranus, she is also not afraid of controversy.  Though her Venus (the other female planet) is opposite Pluto, it also trines her Mars and Neptune and conjoins her North Node, and this describes her love of fashion.  Her Mars sextiles Pluto and trines her North Node, reinforcing the Warrior Archetype, and giving her a huge powerhouse of energy.  Jupiter trine Pluto gives her a love of power, and Pluto conjunct the South Node points to difficult past lives.


In October 2019 Coleen alleged that Rebekah had been using information from her Instagram account to feed stories to a newspaper.  On suspecting that this was happening, she narrowed down an investigation by only feeding false stories to Rebekah Vardy’s account over a period of time.  This proved to her that she had caught the suspect, and she made this public on twitter.  The act earned her the nickname Wagatha Christie.  Rebekah Vardy was horrified, and claimed that someone else must have used or hacked her account.  At the time of the reveal, Coleen’s transits showed: Mars square her natal Mars and ruling planet – Action!  Jupiter square her Mercury – taking a risk; Saturn square her Sun, sadness and depression; and Uranus trine her natal Neptune, in the throes of a complicated matter.

Wayne Rooney

Top scoring footballer Wayne Rooney has Sun in Scorpio and was born in the same year group as Coleen, and they met at school at the age of 12.  They married in 2008 and have four boys. Their synastry shows his Sun opposite her Venus (which Jung showed in his research to be a common aspect between married couples); his Sun is conjunct her South Node (destined for each other); his Venus sextile her Saturn (they have stuck together despite his infidelities). But there are also three good trines involving Neptune and Venus.  Like Coleen, he has Pluto conjunct his South Node.

Rebekah Vardy

With 5 (half) of her 10 planets in Air, Rebekah Vardy can overthink things.  She has the Sun in late Aquarius, and like Coleen it is trine Saturn.  But at the same time her Sun squares Uranus, so normally she is independent and can be rebellious, but also has a controlled streak (the trine to Saturn). Her Mercury squares Jupiter, so that can mean scattered thinking.  But Mercury is also sextile exactly with Uranus (her ruling planet), adding mental ingenuity.   Like Coleen, disputes with women show up in her chart, but for her it is the other female planet Venus, which holds the difficulties, with three squares creating struggle.  Venus is also conjunct the South Node in Capricorn, showing past lives connected with the Arts, and in this lifetime she has earned a living through modelling.  Mars conjunct Saturn gives the capacity for deliberate action, and is situated in Libra, the sign of  close relationships (the marriage with Jamie Vardy being her third marriage).  She may have anger issues, with Mars loosely conjunct Pluto, but these may also stem from a difficult childhood, having been abused by her step-father.  Saturn conjunct Pluto in Libra  may show a latent tendency to depression, together with Saturn and Pluto squaring her Nodal Axis, difficult karma.  Her North Node sextiles Chiron, and maybe when this has all settled down, she may train in the healing arts.

Her transits in October showed: Mars trine her natal Mercury, some confrontation in communication; Chiron sextile her natal Mercury, a conundrum presented to her; Jupiter sextile her natal Mars, high energy; and Chiron trine her natal Uranus, an unexpected twist.  The main difficulty would probably show up if we had her birth time and Ascendant, as a planet on her angles, for instance.

Jamie Vardy

Jamie Vardy, with Mars in Aries, is a speedy player, and one of the heroes of Leicester City’s 2015 cup win, and he notably stayed with Leicester after their victory.  He has the Sun in Capricorn, and the Moon in Gemini.  He met Rebekah in 2014, and they married in 2016.  Leicester had won the Premier League on 2nd May 2016, and Jamie’s transits at the time were: Saturn trine his North Node, Saturn Return within one degree, and Saturn opposite his Chiron, so a reaching of maturity in many ways for him.  The Synastry for the couple includes his Pluto on her Jupiter, so they have the potential to be a power couple.  After she married Jamie, Rebekah took part in “I’m A Celebrity” and was third to be evicted from the jungle. Mars was trine her natal Sun, sextile her natal Neptune, and conjunct  her natal Pluto (she was putting herself out there…).

Court Case

Following the fall-out in October, Rebekah gave birth to baby Olivia in December, and also went through a difficult period of depression, being hospitalized three times.  She experienced a great deal of trolling on social media, and even death threats.  In February, she gave interviews about how the events had affected her.  At that time, Saturn squared her natal Pluto, a heavy number, Uranus squared her natal Mercury, a great deal of nervous anxiety, and Neptune was sextile her natal Chiron (taking steps towards her own recovery).

The culmination of her ruminations came this week, with the news that she is suing Coleen for defamation of character, with possible legal costs of £500,000 on both sides: veritably Hermes handbags at dawn.  Coleen’s legal team greeted the news with disappointment, stating that the “time and money could be put to better use”.  Coleen has offered to meet Rebekah in person.  The court case would mean that Coleen would be able to present her evidence in Court: she had saved and screenshotted all the original stories.

The Synastry between the two women shows: their Jupiters are exactly trine (they were best friends, and maybe there can be a win-win outcome).  Rebekah’s Saturn is sextile Coleen’s Uranus, which is a tense but strong connection.

Rebekah had originally tweeted: “I liked you a lot Coleen and I’m so upset that you have chosen to do this, especially when I’m heavily pregnant. I’m disgusted that I’m even having to deny this.”

Their transits this week, with Rebekah taking a counter-initiative:  Jupiter is on Rebekah’s Venus, a favourable upturn in her self-esteem (Coleen is overall a more popular figure, and has generally received more support); Uranus is opposite Rebekah Jupiter, taking a risk; Neptune trine Rebekah North Node (she will have consulted her inner guidance), and Pluto on Rebekah Venus exact to the day (24th June), counting on her power, and acting on her pain.  For Coleen: Saturn is square Coleen’s Venus, a disappointment; Saturn square Coleen’s Nodal Axis, a source of karmic sorrow, but also Uranus sextile Coleen’s Jupiter, meaning it could prove advantageous to her.  There is a possibility they may reach an agreement, avoiding the necessity of a messy case.

The principle karma here is between Coleen and Rebekah, but is there any karma between the husbands?  There is a little tension, but they also have their Mercuries exactly sextile (a good working relationship) and Wayne Rooney’s Uranus trines Jamie Vardy’s North Node, which points to some surprise karma between them.

So here is a mystery, and I confess that I do not know where the truth lies, but I do know there are two unhappy women, and wish them both the best in resolving their problem.


Mars entered Aries at 1.45 a.m. today in the U.K., and is set to stay in his own sign the whole of the rest of this year.  Note that Jamie Vardy has Mars in Aries, making him a speedy player, so there is a sense that life will be speeding up.  There will be an emphasis on energy and initiative, and possibly an increase on football on our screens!  You may already be feeling this influx of energy.

Together with that ingress today, we have a sextile between Mars and Saturn, which will enable us to channel the energy constructively, and feel our way with the new energy.  If you feel that you have a handle on it, take notes (because at other times during the six-month period, you may be more at sea energetically).  There is a song lyric that comes to mind, having seen an old clip of Moloko performing at Glastonbury yesterday:

“Give up yourself unto the moment
The time is now
Give up yourself unto the moment
Let’s make this moment last”

It may not perfectly fit your experience, but it is very Aries energy.  Mars sextile Saturn is a useful aspect on a practical level, and you may feel you have achieved something by the end of the day.  It helps to stabilize and firm up any plans, foundations or active projects you are currently undertaking.

On Tuesday (30th) we revisit the groundbreaking conjunction of Jupiter and Pluto which we encountered in early April, and it occurs in the same position, 24 degrees Capricorn.  You might want to consult your diary at this point.  I wrote at the time:

“This conjunction would bring out extremes, e.g. of behaviour.  It mainly relates to power, and the expansion of ambitions.”

But I also see it as a symbol of hope. It presented itself to us this year at the beginning of the lockdown, when the coronavirus graph was climbing at an alarming rate.  At this time, we are waiting with bated breath to see if recent casual congregations, especially on beaches, are going to have an effect on the graphs, which had been plateauing.  There are spikes around the country, and the government are considering locking down a district in Leicester.  Jupiter with Pluto constitutes an explosion of energy, enthusiasm and power, which can be used for the good, but needs to be controlled.

The next aspect that day, Sun square Chiron, may throw up a problem, and health issues may be to the fore: look after yourselves that day, for if you don’t look after yourself you can’t look after anyone else!  The problem may literally be how to control the explosion of energy created by Jupiter with Pluto.  What needs healing will be uncovered, and the answer may lie in the problem, or deep in the soul.  Time for self-mastery.

Helpfully, the third aspect of the day, occurring late in the evening, is Mercury sextile Uranus, providing answers on the mental plane.  This encourages us to use all the new technology for our communications, and brings new ideas, heightening intuition and telepathy.  Answers to questions early in the day may suddenly flash into our minds.  There may be spectacular surprises.  With Mercury retrograde, you will still need to go carefully.

The new month, starting Wednesday 1st July, brings a crisp conjunction between the Sun and Mercury (at 9 degrees Cancer), and again mentally you may see things clearly. You can apply your mind according to where the House this conjunction falls in your chart, and if you don’t know which that is, then apply it to home and family affairs, emotions and women.

In order to support this and add a sparkle of ingenuity and inventiveness, Uranus sextiles the Sun also in the morning, so your efforts to get your writing, communication and documentation in order may be assisted with some telepathy and higher consciousness, or liaising with a constructive group.

Then there is another possible glitch during the day, with Mercury squaring Chiron, similar to the Sun square Chiron of the previous day, but more exacting mentally in terms of the need for problem-solving or attentiveness to health.  The answer lies in the question, therein lies a clue.

Just before midnight, Saturn re-enters Capricorn, retrograding from Aquarius.  This will set a more cautious tone, e.g. we may hear of further spikes, both geographically in connection with the virus, and in the daily graphs (which seem to have disappeared from our screens since the daily briefings stopped).  There is something in our own lives which we may have left undone, or need to do more properly, some loose ends to tie and firm up.  Saturn will go back to Aquarius in December, when we experience an exciting fresh start when it conjoins Jupiter at 0 degrees of that sign.  Something to look forward to…

But in the meantime, it may be back to the grindstone, and back to reality.  With such places as restaurants due to re-open on Saturday 4th, make that revived business work, it will be hard work, but it is doable.  Hopefully it is part of the plan for humanity, and part of your own individual karmic mission.

The week in bullet points:

  • Today – new energy and constructiveness
  • Tuesday – groundbreaking; problems; solutions
  • Wednesday – crystal clear thought; originality and inventiveness; glitches; getting back to important issues which remain
