Even before they met, Russell Wilson knew he was probably going to end up with Ciara. And while that’s cute and all, turns out their marriage was written in the stars all along.

“It’s no wonder he was attracted to her from the beginning,” says intuitive astrologer Rachel Lang. His initial feelings for Ciara are reflected in Venus’ location—the planet Lang says determines what and who we’re romantically drawn to. “For Russell, with his Venus in Scorpio, just a few degrees away from Ciara’s Sun, it’s passion, depth, and loyalty” that he’s after, she explains. Some way somehow, Russell knew he’d find that in Ciara.

See, Venus’ placement as it relates to the location of Pluto means Russell’s all about establishing close attachments, says Lang. “He doesn’t want anything shallow or surface. He wants someone who will go all in with him, be willing to be vulnerable, and remain loyal through the rough times.” Which, if you’ve caught even one of the couple’s public appearances, you’ll have seen every one of those qualities shine through. It’s like they can’t help but gush about each other. And even when their exes try and start drama, Ciara and Russell's focus on each other and their family never wavers.

It’s no wonder fans have been rooting for Ciara and Russell since the beginning. With astrological compatibility like this, it’s damn near impossible not to. They're practically dripping with cosmic destiny. Want proof? Ahead, every astrological detail that’s determined this couple’s "goals" status.

The placement of their sun signs makes Ciara and Russell friends first.

"Russell’s Sun is in Sagittarius, and Ciara’s Sun is in Scorpio," Lang says. "When two sun signs are adjacent, this can be an indicator of friendship that can work well in a relationship for helping them stick together."

As a result, Ciara and Russell don't have to deal with some of the same day-to-day tensions that other couples whose signs sit opposite each other might. Their relationship makes room for curiosity about the other and an ease when it comes to seeing things from the other's perspective, says Lang. Most of all, though, this means Ciara and Russell "know how to have fun together, like when they hit the [virtual] red carpet for the ESPYs in their bathrobes" or make TikToks as a family.

Because he's a Sagittarius, Russell has a tendency to lean into his free-spirited side, drift off, and do his own thing—something which challenges Ciara's Scorpio trust. But Lang says Russell's Leo Moon which makes him "extremely loyal" assures her every time.

Jupiter's the reason for their similar life goals.

Ciara is Russell's biggest fan and that's all thanks to Jupiter. The planet—which rules luck and expansion, says Lang—is perfectly located relative to Russell's Sun. "She knows how to support him to be the best he can be and shine brighter in the world." This makes the two more generous with each other and the first to lift the other up when their working toward a new goal. It also helps that they've got a "common vision" for the future, Lang explains. "They aren't afraid of putting the combined effort to make their dreams come true.

Remember Russell's strong sense of loyalty? Well that's the very thing that boosts Ciara's sense of purpose. That protective side she brings out of him makes her confident that Russell's success is never only about him—it's about their entire family, says Lang.

Having Mars in totally different positions in their charts actually sparks passion...

...Even when they argue. "Ciara and Russell handle conflict differently," says Lang. "With her Mars [the planet that rules passion] in Virgo, Ciara is likely to analyze concerns before she confronts Russell with them. She may go to logic when they have an argument, whereas he's more inclined to vent his frustrations, and then let them go." This is not to say Russell and Ciara won't hear each other out when they disagree, it means they have different perceptions of when the argument is over. As in, Ciara might circle back to discussions Russell thinks have been settled.

It's not all about spats though. This passion also fosters Ciara and Russell's attraction to each other and their ability to have all that fun together. Even when things get heated, they resolve it, move on, and let loose.
