Watch How This Engaged Couple's Relationship Compares To An Astrology Reading

From Myspace to being engaged, this couple will compare the real versus the reading.

Love & Relationships

This week’s episode of xoNecole's web series The Real vs. The Reading features Diamonde and Sydney. The couple met on Myspace and are now engaged after dating for six years. Diamonde is a Leo and Sydney is a Libra, which makes them a fun, social couple, and their fire and air elements mean they work well together. However, astrologist and spiritual coach Dani Simone focused more on the couple’s rising signs in her reading.

Diamonde shared what drew her to Sydney. “When we first got together for real, I was all over the place,” she said. “I was moving around a lot, I was trying to pursue my dream.” She added that emotionally, she was a wreck and Sydney was there for her. “I wanted to settle down with you because you just kept me grounded. I was all over the place and I needed an anchor and I feel like she was my anchor.” Sydney agreed that their different personalities balanced each other out.

Dani, who is from xoNecole’s Tarot Reading Lives, collected the birthdays, birth times, birthplaces, and relationship duration of the seven couples featured in season one of the series to curate her readings. Her readings covered romance, challenges, and intimacy.

So, let’s get into it. Diamonde is a Capricorn rising and Sydney is a Scorpio rising. Their rising signs indicate that they both have a way with words, which can be a good and a bad thing. One thing Dani suggested in her reading is that their arguments can lead to them saying hurtful things to each other. In their reaction to the reading, the couple confirmed that they both tend to battle it out with their words in arguments and Diamonde even admitted, “We gotta work on that.”

Watch Diamonde and Sydney's full relationship reading and how "the real" compares to "the reading" in the video below:

Your October 2022 Horoscopes Are All About Finding Flow & Alignment

October is a month of balance. With some energy moving direct and some energy moving retrograde, there is a middle ground to find this month between what is unfolding and what you are letting go. The month begins with Mercury officially moving out of retrograde and going direct in Virgo. Mercury this month is cleaning house and sprucing things up after the somewhat tyrant energy it’s brought over the past few weeks. Now that Mercury is direct, there is less interruption when it comes to daily flow and plans, and this is a good month to start setting things into motion.

The Myth Of The Sex Drive & How Libido Changes From Your 20s, 30s, 40s & 50s

No one prepared me for how horny I would be in my late 30s. All the elders in my life prepared me for random chin hairs, weight gain, and menopause but no one said a mumbling word about my sex drive. Something happens the closer you get to forty. I went from wanting sex here and there to wanting it all the damn time. Is there a support group for this? I can’t be the only one who has the sex drive of the Energizer Bunny. Upon my research to figure out why I felt like a cat in heat, I discovered several theories surrounding women and our sex drives–including one that says the concept of having a sex drive is a myth altogether.
