As Gweneth Paltrow hits the red carpet to promote her new movie, Iron Man 2, gossip columnists and movie-goers alike are curious about the status of her marriage to rocker Chris Martin. We get a reading from our celebrity relationship expert, numerologist and author of Does Your Love Life Add Up?, Max Coppa.
Chris and Gwyneth’s numerology shows that they have no idea how to build a relationship. The middle line (6-5-4) is missing in both of their numerology grids, so giving and receiving love is made more difficult. Couple this with the fact that they are both life lesson 11’s which represents independence and leadership, and this makes the game even more challenging. They both need a partner with a 6, 5 or 4 in their numbers to help balance them out. Chris is spoilt and something of a mummy’s boy, he is in a 7 cycle now so he will be argumentative and hard to deal with. On the other hand, Gwyneth is in a 22 / 4 cycle, so she is currently weighing up her options. It’s sad to say, but it appears this relationship has run out of steam. There were a lot of expectations but simply no follow through. Love doesn’t just happen, you have to work at it, especially if you don’t live in Hollywood where they make dreams come true.
For our happy hour gossip, we asked expert numerologist (and author of Does Your Love Life Add Up?) Max Coppa for his thoughts on another couple in the news: Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren. Here is his reading:
The big question on everyone’s mind is will Tiger cheat again? Unfortunately, the chances say that he will. He is a life lesson 1 and he needs to be number one. There are no 6’s in his birth date so showing and expressing love can be a problem for him. A missing 4 in his numbers show that his issues go deep and relate to his father. Tiger needs to be prepared to address and fix these deeper issues before he goes any further. Tiger and Elin’s numbers show a break-down in communication. She is a life lesson 2 so she is more likely to take him back and suffer in the process (no 6’s in her birth date). It is sad to see people get in to messes like this, especially when there is help out there for them. Tiger is a great sportsman and he will come back, but not without a few hiccups over the next 18 months. He will have to work harder at love than the PGA if he wants to make his relationship last the distance.

They say to love oneself then you can love others. Sandra is the classic example of this! Sandra knew from day one that Jesse James (just like the outlaw) was no good, but like a lot of people she thought with her heart not her head. Numerology gives us an unbiased look at ourselves and others, and if Sandra had worked out Jesse’s numbers before she married him then she would have seen everything she needed to know.
Jesse has no 6’s (love & balance) and too many 9’s in his birth date which makes him secretive and prone to telling lies. He was lying and cheating from day one and although Sandra won’t want to hear that now, it can help her to be more aware in the future. Sandra has a 2 and 6 in her numbers and a strong base line in her numerology grid (1-4-7 combination), which gives her truth and integrity with love and strong family values. Sandra tried to heal Jesse but I’m afraid to say that he is damaged goods. Sandra enters a 9 cycle in July 2010, so their relationship will end this year and she can start afresh. Sandra is a good person and was in her 8 cycle when she won her Academy Award. She deserves better!
Max Coppa‘s new guide Does Your Love Life Add Up? shares how to find a partner and fix your love life using numerology. This week, we looked to the book for answers to the celebrity love questions we’ve been wondering about.
- Is Megan Fox really as wild as she seems? Megan is a 9. Coppa predicts she lives up to her public image behind closed doors, where she likely plays out strange fantasies and experiments aplenty.
- Are Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner going to last? Lasting love is not in the numbers for this twosome. Garner, a 4, needs routine and structure, while Affleck, a 33, enjoys a partner who is more spontaneous and social.
- Is Robert Pattinson really playing the field? Robert’s numbers indicate that he is a devoted partner. As a six, he is a true romantic who is looking for a kind and loving mate, not a series of starlets.
Find out your number and who is and isn’t your perfect match. (All you need is your favorite celebrity’s birth date to figure out their number and find out their true romantic nature.) Does Your Love Life Add Up? ($13.95, paperback) can be purchased at: Amazon, Borders, BN.com, your local bookstore.
