It's difficult to experience Shani Sade for regular mortals, but imagine what it's like to endure so much negative energy in front of the entire world? Brad Pitt's encounter with Shani Sade and Saturn Return is detailed below.
In early 2016, right around the time Brad was shooting a movie with a sexy costar, it was the beginning of a few whispers around Hollywood that something wasn't quite right between Brad and his wife Angelina. The previous year, the couple had wrapped a grueling movie in which they starred together - and the mood was dour.
Perhaps filming By the Sea with his wife, where it was told by locals that they often didn't speak between takes, was the precursor that set a litany of difficult moments in motion for the next year. There was trouble in paradise but why?
Some of the issues involved included cheating allegations in 2016, excessive drinking, and an infamous plane incident involving their eldest child, Maddox. The end of 2016 would mark a long, dramatic ending that was only beginning.
September 14, 2016 The Plane Incident
Analyzing the transit chart for this day reveals that something was clearly wrong between Brad and Angelina - and the tension was building.
If you've ever traveled during Mercury Retrograde (an astrological no-no), you'd know it's the first part of the story that influences the family the most, and that's exactly what the Pitts were doing - traveling from Nice, France. Brad's Uranus (the plane in which the family is traveling) is squaring the Moon (drinking) as well as Venus (wife).
There are numerous other squares on that day that would influence one of the most infamous breakups in the history of Hollywood soon after. Angelina would end up filing for divorce during that same retrograde (another no-no), and it would put forth a tumultuous and protracted battle for custody and alimony. If they had just stayed in Nice that month and taken French lessons. But that was not to be. The reason? Saturn was starting it's approach to Brad's natal moon and almost conjunct his Ascendant. It would only get worse for Brad in the forthcoming months. He had no choice.
It's Official, Brad: You're In Shani Sade
As Brad's transiting Saturn crossed his Ascendant and approached his natal moon, it was reported that he became somewhat of recluse, staying at his pal's residence and learning a very meditative, yet solitary, new hobby: ceramics. There's no doubt the weight of a shocking split, severely limited child visitation, the loss of his home and familiar surroundings, loneliness, sadness and the overall humiliation of being investigated by federal agents (after that plane ride) in front of a public audience was too much to bear. He began to look older - and probably felt older.
This is the result of Shani Sade as 2 highly incompatible planets merge and change a person's life.
