When it comes to “breaking the internet,” a hot new couple has us seeing stars: Tom Holland and Zendaya. (Can we affectionately start calling them “Tendaya” yet?)
After the trailer for “Spider-Man: No Way Home” smashed an all-time viewership record — with an astonishing 355.5 million global views in its first 24 hours last month — the world was predicting that these two powerhouse celebrities weren’t just hooking up on-camera — but also off-camera, as well!
But what’s really going on? What is Holland and Zendaya’s zodiac compatibility?
While their relationship seemingly started as friendship and has evolved into romance — most recently marked by 25-year-old Tom’s sweet birthday tribute to his also 25-year-old love — the two are now starting to pack on the PDA. (“My MJ, have the happiest of birthdays. Gimme a call when [you’re] up xxx,” he wrote in his virtual birthday kiss. That’s a lot of x’s, if I do say so myself.)
Could these two really be the perfect lovers they seem to be?
Well, good thing I’m a pop-culture astrologer because now we can dish out all of the exclusive astrolo-tea.
The basics: Who are they?
So, in case you’ve been living under a rock and don’t know much about our duo, here’s the scoop.
Tom Holland is an English actor, born on June 1, 1996, in London, England. He is, of course, most widely known as everyone’s friendly neighborhood Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. (I am such a huge fan. What a time to be alive!)
Zendaya Coleman is an American actress, singer and model, born on Sept. 1, 1996, in Oakland, California. She rose to fame through her television work on Disney Channel and, more recently, in the HBO hit “Euphoria.” Meanwhile, on the big screen, her feature film career has included roles in “The Greatest Showman” and two prior Spider-Man franchise flicks, “Spider-Man: Homecoming” and “Spider-Man: Far From Home.”
Sun sign analysis
Right off the bat, we know that Tom and Zendaya certainly have a lot in common just from their sun signs. Tom is a Gemini, while Zendaya is a Virgo.
Wait a sec.
Those two zodiac signs are very different elements in astrology, with Gemini being a free-spirited air sign and Virgo being a calculated earth sign. However, as far as their modalities, they both are known as mutable signs, which are good at being flexible, adaptable and open to shifts — more so than the other zodiac signs.
So we can see that Tom and Zendaya are both somewhat “go with the flow and see where it takes you” kind of people once you really get to know them. They understand that relationships evolve, which makes total sense as far as why their budding love affair has been, uh, years in the making.
The last thing to note about their sun signs is that both Gemini and Virgo are ruled by Mercury: the planet of logic, the mind, and communication. That makes them big on connection and shows that their needs are often parallel.
It just makes ‘spider sense’ to be a power couple!
When it comes to Tom and Zendaya’s astrological compatibility, there are a lot of factors to look at. Obviously, the more info we have — such as a celeb’s birth time/date/place — the more nuanced we can go into the depth of their love connection. While we don’t have Tom’s exact time of birth, we can still see a lot from Zendaya’s perspective of the sky because her birth time is listed online. Zendaya is an Aquarius rising with a Taurus moon, while Tom’s ascendant sign is unknown, but he has a Sagittarius moon.
Utilizing the art of synastry, which compares two people’s birth charts to assess the strengths and challenges in their rapport, we can see that many of Tom’s planets fall within Zendaya’s sector of fame, prominence and achievement — known as the “10th house” or “midheaven”) — thus showing that he helps her to exert and step into her power publicly.
With his moon sign here, he provides an emotional bond that allows her to trust their connection, but also — as we so clearly can see in the PDA uptick — puts their relationship on display. They admire each other greatly, and that was what allowed them to entertain the idea of building something more. His Pluto sign, which represents power and dominance, also energizes her midheaven, revealing that they are attracted to one another’s public standing and know that they can work well as a team to dominate, build wealth and transform each other’s careers for the better.
And with many of Tom’s planets also in her third house of communication — namely his Mars, the planet of passion, and Mercury, the planet of the mind — this shows that they share interests and have a constructive and exciting way of connecting.
And travel? Their love blossoms when they’re busy on the road, for sure.
But is it true love?
To be very upfront, the majority of their astrological compatibility shows a strategic and friendly rapport. But, YES: Their stars do show that once they both logically felt it made “sense,” their hearts likely opened and bloomed.
Their planets of passion, chemistry and romance are also linked in an extremely magical way, showing a real development of attraction. Tom’s Mars (think of it as the stereotypical male, active force) links in a harmonious angle called a sextile to Zendaya’s Venus (think of it as the stereotypical, passive force) — which means the sparks, especially behind closed doors, will fly.
The key to that, however, is that Tom needs to “feel like a man,” while Zendaya enjoys the pursuit of his affections.
And that very light and affectionate synergy has seemingly transcended from screen — to reality.
