Selena Gomez: the modern-day Queen of Hollywood.
As one of the most influential pop stars and creatives in the entire world, the massively successful actress, singer, producer and entrepreneur has carved out a place entirely her own. Catapulted to stardom as a Disney prodigy and princess, she has been casting spells on the world ever since—now with over 200 million fans on Instagram and one of the most followed people on the planet!
Yet, battling intense relationships in the public eye, as well as physical and mental health scares, Gomez, 29, has proven that one can stand atop the world and find the strength to maintain their integrity, sanity and success without being torn down like so many pop princesses that have come before. Having publicly faced lupus, bipolar disorder and a kidney transplant, Gomez has championed for herself, her fans and her beliefs no matter what the cosmos have thrown at her.
For her, it seems as if she has no boundaries to her creativity and self-expression, launching the majorly successful Rare Beauty line, rocking glamour and fashion on the world’s stage, and using deeply meaningful tattoos to capture the journey that she has been upon. Recently, she has further ventured into television with her hit series ‘Only Murders in the Building’ and ‘Selena + Chef.’
So what has given her the fascinating journey she’s experienced thus far? Are her relationships ‘cursed’ as she has previously said? What lies ahead and was she compatible with exes Justin Bieber, Orlando Bloom, the Weeknd, or potential crush Chris Evans? Join me as we take a dive into her cosmos because I’m a pop culture astrologer and I can see it all.
Selena Gomez’s birth chart shows that her heart wants what it wants
Selena Gomez was born on July 22, 1992. This makes her a sensitive Cancer Sun with a fiery Aries Moon. Her birth time has not been confirmed with me directly and is in question online, so we’ll focus exclusively on what we do know is entirely accurate in her astrology. When it comes to elemental energy, Gomez is significantly composed of Fire and Earth. This shows that she is immensely passionate and can channel her energy in practical and constructive ways when she sets her mind toward a goal. I love how creative her chart reveals she is, especially with her Mercury and Venus in charismatic Leo. Gomez can also be quite impulsive, leading with her heart, diving headfirst into her desires and not thinking twice.
When it comes to key themes that arise within her chart, many of her planetary alignments show how rebellious she can be underneath it all, eager to follow her spirit and soar to great extremes. Her Sun, ruling her life force, dances with her Mars, ruling her drive, bringing her tremendous energy, stamina and strength. When she gets going, she can go and go and go! She is overwhelmingly confident—that is, if her heart isn’t broken, which I’ll get to in a bit. Her Sun also clashes with her Moon, ruling her emotional inner life, bringing her great strength to follow her own will—but this can at times lead her to feel like she is pulled in two directions: between her mind and her instincts. Her Jupiter, which rules expansion, links to her Uranus, ruling freedom, meaning that she is often optimistic and possesses fantastic levels of originality.
However, she does not like to be controlled or told what to do, as she always sees the best in a situation and person, often led by the higher ideals of what she believes. Her Uranus is also united with her Neptune, which rules imagination, bringing her a strong attunement to spirituality and people on a core level. This can even grant her levels of psychic ability, able to see beyond the physical into the past, present and future. This is further emphasized by how her Jupiter sweetly amplifies her Neptune, as well. She is certainly mystical and possesses high levels of perception and awareness. TBH: she and I would be like two peas in a pod!
Is Selena Gomez astrologically compatible with Justin Bieber, Orlando Bloom, the Weeknd, or Chris Evans?
Next up: Selena Gomez’s relationships! Let’s be upfront, when you’re one of the most famous people in the entire world, a total romantic and growing up in the public eye, of course there is going to be some difficulty finding “the one.” While she has gone on the record to joke that all of her exes think she’s crazy, there’s actually a reason she’s faced some trauma around relationships in her life—and yes, it’s astrological.
Chiron, the asteroid known as the Wounded Healer, is quite prominent in her chart—and significantly activates sensitive points that have to deal with relationships. Venus, the planet of love and intimacy, is united with Chiron in her birth chart exactly. This is extremely intense and can bring someone very painful experiences around union, relationships, emotional attachments and love. These difficulties exist to fuel her to rise up and help the world around her. Her Mercury, ruling her mind, is also united with Chiron, showing painful wounding as a child from her peers and can bring her vivid and painful memories until she can find a way of being less emotionally attached to them in order to release them and communicate how one can heal to others (which, TBH, she’s been doing in her music quite well).
Then her Venus clashes with Saturn, the planet of life lessons and hardship, showing further blockages in interpersonal relationships and then a deep sense of bitterness and rejection that she may feel around love when it breaks. She certainly craves deep commitment, but then at times may express jealousy or codependence which than sabotages the rapport. Saturn also clashes with her Chiron, further emphasizing this theme. Last, her Mars fights with Pluto, bringing anger and power struggles whenever she feels insecure or lonely. This karmically teaches her to embrace forgiveness on the deepest of levels. Now, to be upfront, this may sound like a lot of baggage and may make someone feel they’ll “forever be alone.” But that is not the case, ultimately.

Gomez is being given a crash course in human relationships and because the universe loves her so much it is giving her the inspiration, insight and power to change the world for the better and help those in need that do not have a voice. This is a cosmic masterpiece—and that masterpiece is her life. Of course you all want to know about her previous relationships, so here’s the deets. As for a breakdown on her star-crossed chemistry with Justin Bieber and the karmic entanglement with Hailey Baldwin, 25, read my full breakdown here. The rapport between Bieber and Gomez was immensely deep—and yes, very connected—but it was also meant to transform them. Justin Bieber, 28, is a Pisces Sun with a Scorpio Moon.
I also previously wrote about a potential fling between Chris Evans and Selena Gomez here, and TBH: this would be such a fun connection if the two ever gave it a shot (and come on, they are like so outrageously hot and sweet, I’d stan that). Chris Evans, 40, is a Gemini Sun with a Scorpio Moon. Two others I’d like to highlight are Orlando Bloom, who is now partnered up with one of my favs Katy Perry, and the Weeknd. Orlando Bloom, 45, is Capricorn Sun with a Scorpio Moon. The Weekend, 32, was born February 16, 1990. This makes him an Aquarius Sun with a Scorpio Moon. Do we see a theme here? Gomez loves her men with a deeply passionate, possessive, sexual and all-or-nothing Scorpio Moon. And hey, that’s okay—she craves intensity!
TBH: the connection between Gomez and Bloom is off the charts, with tons of cosmic energy that clearly brought them to each other time and again. This relationship was definitely tremendously passionate. As for her and the Weeknd, this rapport is also incredibly strong with energy levels at a top peak. When looking at these four men, I’d say in order of most to least compatible, though, I’d give Bloom first place, then the Weeknd, then Bieber and *womp womp* then the ever-dashing Evans.
What are predictions for Selena Gomez?
So what lies ahead for Selena Gomez? Let’s first start with her career and prominence. Jupiter, the planet of miracles, is dancing at the crown of her solar chart in 2022 and 2023, lifting her further into the heights of fame, success and glory. Her popularity will further grow in 2023 and 2024, as well as her financial wealth. Hell to the yes! I do think she will further push back into television and film and use music as a fun little excuse to shake things up when she’s feeling the burst of creativity. I also think there’s going to be a greater focus for her on giving back and doing her best to raise awareness about issues important to her, especially mental health.
And then what about her relationships? Will she ever fall in love again? She’s been facing a tough time in recent years, especially from 2017 onward, as Saturn and Pluto have been putting distance in her intimate life and forcing her to choose carefully. Luckily, the planets are shifting so while she is still dipping her toes into the water of love, she will likely find that she’s able to soon work through some of her traumas and truly be vulnerable again. Since Gomez is a creature of passion (same!), she will also feel swept up in the intensity of powerful eclipses—which represent destiny and fate—in her personal life in 2022 and 2023.
This shows that it is quite likely she will get back into dating and—wait for it—yes, fall in love! This connection is likely to be a soulmate connection. However, whether or not it lasts forever will be up to her and him, but the best part about it is that it could fulfill her on such a deep level that it changes her life forever. I’m so happy for her. She really does deserve all the light that the universe has to offer. Oh—and best news of all—the worst is certainly behind her. You heard it here first.
