Paul McCartney (June 18, 1942)
You’d think, seeing as I’m such a Beatles’ fan, that I would have looked at Paul McCartney‘s birth chart before now. It was my initial look at his second wife, Heather Mills, that raised the issue of similarity.
Could this be why they got together in the first place? However, Paul’s Yod is formed by Midheaven inconjuncts to Mars and Uranus, suggesting something entirely different from Heather’s double Yod.

This aspect can mean that you have mixed feelings about all authority figures, including your parents. You may feel that you have to violate the rules laid down by your parents in order to get your way. This is a significant problem, because if it continues into adulthood, you will have great difficulties with employers. Therefore it is very important that your parents teach you how to express your self-assertive drives without going against their teachings. Unfortunately it is impossible to state how that should be done, because the conflict between self-will, on one hand, and self-denial and work, on the other, is different for each person.

You need to express your thoughts and feelings, but you often upset the people around you with your words. You seem to enjoy creating a stir every time you say something, but this can get you into quite a bit of trouble with parents, teachers and other authority figures. The underlying principle of this aspect is the need to balance your individual self-expression and manner of communicating with your need to learn and grow under the guidance of older people.
Certainly you will discover your own routes to what you want in life. Now you need to be given the confidence and encouragement to look for those routes on your own with total freedom.
(Forming the Beatles with John Lennon may have done that for him…)
In reality Paul and Heather weren’t that ‘together’ as a married couple. This may account for their divorce: they each wanted the other to ‘mother’ them without invoking the father energy. That can happen sometimes.
All things must pass…
