When information broke this January that the objectively best-looking couple within the identified world — Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet — was parting methods, hearts sank and my very own non-public dream of being the unicorn in that ethereal threesome was dashed.
Bonet, 54, and Momoa, 42, introduced their separation through the latter’s Instagram account, revealing in a now-deleted submit, “The love between us carries on, evolving in methods it needs to be identified and lived. We free one another to be who we’re studying to develop into.”

Momoa claims to have fallen for Bonet at first sight, seeing her on his TV display screen as a kiddo and hatching a prepubescent plot to marry her. The celebs aligned when the 2 met in an LA jazz membership in 2004. Becoming for a Leo, who loves not solely his personal reflection however the alternative to see himself mirrored in one other, Momoa was bewitched when Bonet ordered a Guinness, his favourite beer, on their first date.
Leos are usually inclusive, affectionate and gregarious, prepared to share their world with the world at massive. As Bonet described Momoa in 2018, “What’s cool about Jason is that he’s an alpha male who stands for love and household … Jason embodies a uncommon type of masculinity at the present time – he’s a pacesetter; he’s beneficiant. Simply when it comes to charisma, physique, the precise use of energy, duty, work ethic, you’ll be able to go down the road.”
All that regal, paternal lions require in return is an exhausting quantity of validation and a good quantity of heavy placing.
Scorpios like Bonet — who, bless her bones, has no social media presence — are innately suspicious of outsiders and fiercely protecting of their intimate relationships. The disparate vitality between low-key Bonet and limelight-loving Leo Momoa is probably finest described by the person himself, who revealed in a 2019 Esquire interview, “She’s very, very non-public. I’m the other, like Come on in!” It’s maybe this distinction that finest encapsulates the modalities of their solar indicators and forecasts the fission that was to come back.
In astrology, the moon represents our emotional interiority. It reveals our type of want, protection techniques, survival instincts and the nourishment we did and didn’t obtain as youngsters. Bonet and Momoa’s moons sit reverse each other on the zodiac wheel, a polarity that means these two have been pulled collectively to be taught from, and in the end liberate, each other.

Because the adage and Paula Abdul music advise, opposites entice. The sentiment extends to the Taurus and Scorpio moon indicators of Bonet and Momoa, whose preliminary attraction to at least one one other was intense, with prime notes of fated. As Bonet detailed in a 2018 Internet-A-Porter interview, “I can’t say it was full-on from the second we noticed one another, however we’ve been collectively from the day that we met.”
Each Scorpio and Taurus are fastened indicators, indicating that the emotional nature of those two can border on obstinate but in addition deeply dedicated, a undeniable fact that explains the longevity of Bonet and Momoa’s union.
Following a 13-year courtship and the start of their two youngsters, Lola Iolani and Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha, Momoa and Bonet wed in a secret ceremony at their residence in Topanga Canyon in 2017.
Destiny and its fallout
The Scorpio/Taurus axis is the realm of belongings, reception and launch. Looking for and merging sources is a trademark of this moon mixture, and it serves to clarify how Momoa and Bonet appeared to so effortlessly and joyfully be part of forces. The couple devoted themselves to elevating their youngsters with out the intercession of tv and as wild as doable within the sprawling acreage of their shared Shangri-La. Momoa can also be famously shut with Bonet’s daughter, actress Zoë Kravitz. Kravitz calls him “papabear” and so they share matching tattoos: a Baudelaire quote extolling the advantage of drunkenness.
Maybe much more spectacular than this step-father/step-daughter dynamic is the truth that Momoa is full-bore bros with Bonet’s ex-husband, Lenny Kravitz. Past household ties and customary floor, Bonet and Momoa are frequent collaborators, starring collectively in 2014’s “Highway to Paloma,” a movie penned by Momoa.
Why, then, did they finish?
A Taurus moon-like Bonet finds contentment simply and thru easy pleasures and sensory indulgence; these folks actually crave the consistency of a secure relationship and the sensation of their naked toes on contemporary earth. As Bonet revealed in a current Interview journal dialog along with her buddy Marisa Tomei, “That’s the pursuit, isn’t it? Permitting for pleasure. I feel a lot of youth is pushed by ambition, however now it actually feels completely different.”
Alternatively, Momoa appears possessed by the very ambition Bonet is shifting away from. A struggling actor once they met, he’s now the star of the “Aquaman” franchise, a staple of the superstar circuit and a social media hype-man for manufacturers he loves and buddies he helps.
Momoa and his Scorpio moon wish to transfer and make strikes, obtain, problem and be modified on the world’s stage. Bonet and her bull moon wish to wander the pastures, develop greens, drink bone broth, domesticate a significant relationship with herself and chill past the Eye of Sauron that’s the mainstream media. Certainly, current stories recommend that Bonet’s reluctance to journey to Momoa’s movie units was partially in charge for his or her cut up, because the bodily distance reportedly gave approach to a widening emotional divide.
Now that the 2 have parted, it’s heartening to see them going their separate methods in the identical trend that they walked alongside one another — with reverence and a shared dedication to freedom.
