“Forever” is a long time, but in the eyes of Kourtney Kardashian and Blink-182’s Travis Barker, it appears to have just begun.
When it comes to one of the hottest couples of 2021, it’s clear that they’re here to show the world — and each other — just how magical their love story is. If their sizzling PDA, bizarre IG Stories (a vial of blood, a new tattoo) and Instagram emoji-love language weren’t enough, on Oct. 17, 2021, 45-year-old Barker got down on one knee in front of a slew of cameras filming her Hulu reality show, surrounded by thousands of roses at a Santa Barbara beach, to officially ask Kardashian to take his hand. (And, let’s be real, to become a staple in the Kardashian empire.)
But here’s the astrolo-tea: Kardashian, 42, has a habit of attracting karmic lovers.
And as Scott Disick, Kardashian’s 38-year-old ex and baby-daddy, proceeds to inevitably have a mini-breakdown about the engagement (at least according to one insider), fans are left wondering just how badly he’ll react.
So who is Kardashian more compatible with? Good thing I’m a pop culture astrologer because I know all the secrets.
Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker are star-crossed
First off, when looking at astrological compatibility, I always assess the Big 3 placements.
Kourtney Kardashian was born on April 18, 1979. From her birth chart, we can see that she is an Aries sun, Capricorn moon and Pisces ascendant. (For all of the astro-newbies out there, I’ll break it all down in a sec.)
Travis Barker was born on Nov. 14, 1975. From his birth chart, we can see that he is a Scorpio sun, Aries soon and Cancer ascendant.
When it comes to their sun sign compatibility (a k a intrinsic personality), both of them burn hot, crave passion and aren’t afraid of a bit of drama. They both have intense personalities and an all-or-nothing mentality. Also, with their ascendants (think: the mask they wear) both being water signs, they naturally flow and blend together in a sensitive and intuitive way. Kardashian is a bit more dreamy and romantic, but that allows Barker to feel safe to love and open up his heart.
Another awesome factor is that Barker’s moon sign is Aries — the same zodiac sign the sun is in in Kardashian’s birth chart. They feel united in how they can relate to one another on both physical and emotional frequencies. Swoon!
Diving deeper, I see that Barker’s natal sun is linked to Kardashian’s natal Venus — meaning they make each other feel great and they have a strong friendship as a foundation, based on common interests and a mutual pursuit of sensual enjoyment. They can build a permanent bond easily — and, best of all, they are receptive to each other.
But it isn’t all smooches and cuddles for these two: There’s actually hella chemistry that most people would die for. The way the planets link shows that their physical attraction is magnetic, and they’re action-packed and ravenously sexually oriented. There is a strong ability to transform one another through positive experiences and, yes, mind-blowing orgasms.
Woof! No wonder they’re seeing stars!
Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick: Meant to meet, but not to last
Next up: Let us call newly single Scott Disick up before me to the astro-stand!
Disick was born on May 26, 1983. He is a Gemini sun with a Sagittarius moon. This means that he was born on a full moon — and TBH, is just one of the reasons he tends to be larger than life (and, uh, go a bit wild).
When comparing his stars to Kardashian’s, we can definitely see the rapport between them. Kardashian is an Aries, which is a fire sign, while Disick is a Gemini, which is an air sign. Typically, this combination of elements goes extremely well together because, without oxygen, a flame cannot burn.
When it’s good, it’s really great — and their energy can be mutually supportive. But too much wind will extinguish a candle, whereas too much fire can create an explosion. That could be seen many times throughout the couple’s on-again, off-again situationship. The best part about the rapport between Kardashian and Disick is that, at the base of it all, they are friends and can support each other.
Sure, I even see why — and how — their whirlwind love story had plenty of passion and intensity, but also why it was riddled with instability in the end. Uranus, the planet of chaos and unpredictability, is highly active in both of their charts. This always shows a relationship that ends up having a very unusual quality or setup to it and even creates a sense of rebellion.
When it’s sweet, they feel happy to take risks and embrace the eccentricity, but when it’s toxic — well, it’s not good for anyone.
On even further analysis of their connection, I do see why mystics and shamans have stated that Kardashian and Disick are soulmates. But we have many soulmates in a lifetime — we don’t just have “the one.” That’s a common misconception, and I’m setting the record straight (you’re welcome). Saturn, the planet of karma and life lessons, is clashing in their birth charts — revealing that when it was bad, there was a tendency to feel criticized by one another and always opposed. Pluto, the planet of domination and rebirth, is also in a challenging position for them — revealing a tendency to fall into obsession, possession and depression when things aren’t working out how one wants. And, sadly, it’s Disick’s natal Pluto that’s clashing with Kardashian’s sun, meaning that he is the one that is more prone to, uh, these darker traits than she is. Sorry, bro: It just wasn’t meant to be forever.
Our final verdict
When it comes to love, I do always say that even the most challenging relationships or astrological connections can work — through a great deal of effort, energy and communication. And honestly, even the easiest rapports need maintenance too.
While I do think both Barker and Disick are soulmate connections to Kardashian, I believe that Disick is the one that is more karmic in nature, perhaps even a past-life relationship, that prepared Kardashian for the experiences and relationships to come. You can’t compare each connection to say which is more important or meaningful, because they both play a special role in her life — in the past, the present and the future.
Congratulations to the newly engaged couple!
