Watch This Couple Of 14 Years Compare Their Relationship Compatibility To Astrology

In episode two of xoNecole’s new YouTube series, The Real vs. The Reading, astrologist and spiritual coach Dani Simone chats with married couple, Ernest and Dayna Bolden. Like in the previous episode, Dani gives a reading and the couple reveals whether or not the reading matches their habits.


Seven couples in total were interviewed separately to be featured in season one of the YouTube series with a variety of relationship stages such as married, engaged, and dating.

Dani collected the happy couples’ birthdays, birth times, birthplaces, and relationship duration to curate her readings based on each individual's birth chart. The readings are separated into three categories: romance, challenges, and intimacy, and at the end, the couples confirm or deny if the reading was accurate as "the real."

Both Dayna and Ernest admitted that they weren’t followers of astrology, but were intrigued to learn more about it for themselves and each other.

Dayna is a lifestyle influencer who met her husband Ernest on MySpace 14 years ago. “I remember one day in my dorm room I was really bored and I researched 6ft tall, dark skin, athletic and he popped up,” Dayna said about how they met. She sent him a friend request on the social media site and the rest was history. They have been married for nine years and share two children.

But what makes them a good match? Both of them are air signs with Dayna’s sun sign in Aquarius and Ernest’s sun sign in Gemini, which means they both like to nurture their social lives, their intellect and are open to learning more about each other.

However, there are some differences. According to Dayna, Ernest expresses himself very well and Ernest concurred by referring to himself as a “poetic lover,” which Dani confirmed in her readings. Dani also suggested that Dayna was a hothead due to her Mars being placed in Sagittarius. Ernest agreed by saying that the influencer would go “0 to 100 real quick,” but they have since worked through that.

When it came to intimacy, Dani’s reading suggested that the couple loved vacations and staycations to keep things spicy. Ernest also agreed by revealing that although they get it “on and poppin’” at home, it was something different about vacation sex.

All in all, the couple unanimously agreed that Dani’s readings were accurate.

“I learned a lot about myself. I learned a lot about you (to Dayna). I learned some stuff that I was unsure about, but this was assurance like alright you ain’t trippin' that’s just the way things are,” Ernest said.

With a YouTube channel that boasts millions of views from her hair and skincare tutorials, beauty influencer Candice Jones knows what it takes to look great on the outside. But when it came to her mental wellbeing, Jones started feeling a disconnect. “Because a lot of the things that I was seeing on social media like: take a bath, pour you some wine,” Jones tells xoNecole about her initial attempts at self-care. “I was doing all of those aesthetic things, but it wasn't making me feel better.”
