Everyone says relationships are all about building trust, but for Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry, it was an immediate sense of trust that brought the two together. No assembly required. Their connection was destined, according to intuitive astrologer Rachel Lang.
“Orlando’s Scorpio Moon is in conjunction with Katy’s Sun,” explains Lang. “The Moon in astrology represents our emotions, family, and home. This is arguably one of the most significant points of compatibility we see in astrology because it suggests that they feel at home with one another, can easily relate with one another, and share a deep heart-centered connection.” According to their birth charts, it’s likely Katy possesses the qualities Orlando loves most in his family members, allowing him to immediately open up to her.
Now, if that wasn’t enough, turns out Katy’s moon is also in Scorpio. “The way [Katy and Orlando] respond to emotions is similar, and that way is deep,” says Lang. “They aren’t likely to skim the surface. Someone with a Scorpio Moon feels the whole spectrum of emotions, even if they have a difficult time showing their vulnerabilities or letting anyone see their emotions.” This connection is the reason Katy and Orlando just get each other.
But that’s not the only astrological factor that’s kept these two together—and kept them returning to each other after their breakups. The planets rule numerous aspects of this relationship. Ahead, exactly how astrology has determined the passion Katy and Orlando feel for each other, how they communicate, and even the challenges they face.
Mars, Jupiter, and Venus keep the romance going.
“Both Katy and Orlando have Mars, the planet of passion and sexuality, conjunct in Capricorn. This is strong indicator of sexual chemistry and compatibility,” Lang explains. Orlando and Katy keep each other energized and stimulated. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that Katy’s Mars and Jupiter form a favorable sextile aspect with Orlando’s Venus either, because that brings physical attraction into the mix.
And because Katy’s Jupiter is located near Orlando’s Mars, the couple gets that added layer of excitement tacked onto their passion.
Beyond affection, these planets also factor into family life. “Because Orlando’s Mars favorably aspects Katy’s Moon, and because there’s so much influence of the Moon, parenthood and family life will be a major focus for these two,” Lang says, which is especially true now since the two have just welcomed their daughter, Daisy.
Mercury rules how well Katy and Orlando communicate.
“Communication is strongly represented for these two as well, and they’re likely to brainstorm ideas or have dynamic conversations about a variety of subjects,” says Lang. “There’s a creative spark present with Orlando’s Uranus in Scorpio in conjunction with Katy’s Mercury, and Katy’s Jupiter in Capricorn in conjunction with Orlando’s Mercury. They never lack conversation topics.”
The one sticky spot is determined by Orlando’s bluntness. It can make him seem insensitive at times when he doesn’t mean to be. A lot of it has to do with the fact that he’s an Aquarius rising. It means he needs space and freedom to be really happy which might come off as standoffish.
They can thank Saturn for their challenges and how they get through them.

Sure, Saturn is how astrologers like Lang scopes out the challenges in relationships, but it’s also the “glue that sticks couples together,” she explains.
Because Orlando’s Saturn interacts with Katy’s career house cusp, it affects her ascendant, her Mercury, and her Moon. Translation: They work well together. But “at the same time, Katy might feel that Orlando wants to be in charge,” Lang says. “It’s important for him not to be too fixed in his opinion or too stubborn when making joint decisions.”
And for Katy, now that she and Orlando have added one more to their family, she might feel like she can’t focus as much on her career, but it’s all about striking a balance, says Lang, “so she doesn’t feel limited or held back.”
