At the present moment Johnny Depp and Amber Heard are in the darkest places of their entire lives. You didn’t need astrology to tell you that, but I will explain why.
Once in love, the ex-couple are now embroiled in an ugly trial as Depp’s defamation trial against his ex-wife has seemingly captivated the nation. A recent analysis from social media monitoring company NewsWhip shows Americans are more interested in the Depp v. Heard trial then they are in other current events such as news stories about inflation, abortion or the war in Ukraine.
I know a lot of people get off on seeing others reach a downfall and crash and burn, but I am not one of them. If you get off on this or that—be better. Get therapy. I fight for the good in myself, my relationships and in the integrity of humanity.
Sadly Depp, 58, and Heard, 36 suffered from an ill-fated attraction. One look at their birth charts and it’s easy to decipher that their lack of compatibility created this perfect storm.
Johnny Depp’s birth chart shows he’s drawn to wounded relationships
Johnny Depp was born on June 9, 1963. This makes him a feisty Gemini Sun with a meticulous Capricorn Moon. Johnny Depp is not inherently a bad human being. He does, however, have some tremendously chaotic alignments in his birth chart. In the future, I will do a breakdown about him—but for this particular article, I will highlight a few different things.

First up, Depp has his Sun, ruling his life force, clashing with Chiron, the asteroid known as the Wounded Healer. This means that karmically he was brought into this life to heal himself and others through painful realizations and relationships. He has a tremendously deep resource of compassion and can guide and heal others, but he’s drawn to trauma and perpetuating situations that began in his upbringing. His upbringing was likely chaotic and his understanding of the world is one of tragedy, so he believes only the greatest loves and relationships are dark, macabre and eccentric—but they also contain levels of passion so deep, they illuminate our fears and desires.
To make matters more volatile in his birth chart, he has his Mars united with Uranus and Pluto. He is brilliant, revolutionary and transformative—but also is driven by explosive levels of emotion, passion and intensity. He is immensely forceful and dominant, but also chaotic on a level of submission, than laughter and play until he becomes a tyrant. This all goes back to his sense of lacking any stability whatsoever in his sense of personal self-love. He is also potentially unpredictable. He is inherently undoing to himself because he has never known kindness within himself, so his transition from being a king to a martyr happens without him even being aware.

Amber Heard’s birth chart shows she demands to find the truth
Amber Heard was born on April 22, 1986. This makes her a strong Taurus Sun with a partnership-focused Libra Moon. Amber Heard has a ton of fire to her, but she’s also so strong that she believes she cannot be broken.
First off, the main theme that runs through her birth chart is that she can be prone to delusions—and she, like Depp, is drawn to relationships that are potentially karmic, destructive and transformative. Her Saturn, ruling life lessons, is in a sharp connection with her Chiron, the Wounded Healer, showing that she refuses to heal and consistently battles with authority and personal authority.
She, too, likely had an immensely difficult upbringing, especially around how emotions were exchanged and how to connect with trust and vulnerability. In her relationships Heard suppressed her emotions and made herself forget. Heard is a master of forgetting, remembering later on and then drumming of fantasies she thought happened because her past made her into a victim. She is a typhoon of fantasy, emotion and pain.
Unfortunately, just like Depp’s chart, matters get more challenging. Her Moon, ruling her emotions, links to Neptune, showing she has an enigmatic mystique to her—she is beyond imaginative and prone to deception of others and also self-deception. Her Mercury, which rules her eternal mind, clashes with Neptune, too, revealing that, yes, she’s artistic, but she’s also focused on over-glamorizing her thoughts, emotions and visions of the world.

Are Johnny Deep and Amber Heard astrologically compatible?
Were the planets involved in drawing them together? Yes, of course. Their attraction is very strong. But let’s be real: they’re shrouded in one of the most toxic public scandals in the press now. So no, hell no, they are not ultimately astrologically compatible. When peering into Depp and Heard’s rapport, the greatest things they have in common are a tremendous desire for sex and money. They are also karmic connections that repeatedly destroy each other. This rapport between them has happened in many past lives, except this one is much more famous because Depp’s curve led him to this.
To be honest, as for predictions of where things are headed, I refuse to go into details because of this situation’s toxicity, except for two things: Depp and Heard will get an immense amount of money and sex from this. It’s a part of their soul contracts. They both lose—and they both win.
