Johnny Depp's Engagement Confirmed… Will It Last?

This Hollywood couple is reportedly heading down the aisle—find out if their future is written in the stars

Johnny Depp appears to have officially confirmed his engagement to Amber Heard on Monday. When he was asked if the ring he sported signaled upcoming nuptials, the 50-year-old star of the new movie Transcendence replied, "The fact that I'm wearing a chick's ring on my finger is probably a dead giveaway. Not very subtle."

Rumors of the engagement between the former costars, who met filming 2011's The Rum Diaries, first surfaced in January. Known as the player of the zodiac, a Gemini like Johnny isn't typically very eager to be tied down by the ‘ole ball and chain. Remember that he stayed unmarried to his longtime partner French singer/actress Vanessa Paradis (a Capricorn), with whom he has two children, for nearly 15 years.

A Mutable sign, a Gemini like him is prone to quick changes of heart and indecision, often causing analysis paralysis. He has already been married once—to Lori Anne Allison (Virgo) from 1983 to 1985—and was engaged to actresses Jennifer Grey (Aries), Sherilyn Fenn (Aquarius) and Winona Ryder (Scorpio). In fact, he got a tattoo that read "Winona Forever” but later edited it to say "Wino Forever." Will he actually end up meeting Amber at the end of the aisle?

Given their aversion to being tied down, Geminis need influences that are grounding, not stifling. A steady, confident Taurus like Amber, though not classically compatible with Johnny's sign, could provide stability and a sense of security within the relationship. "With his moon in the earth sign of Capricorn, Gemini Johnny looks for the emotional stability of earth signs in his partners," says astrologer Aurora Tower. "His former partner, Vanessa, was a Capricorn and Amber is a practical Taurus. She will be able to fulfill his emotional need for grounding and consistency."

At the same time, an on-the-go, fiercely independent Gemini like Johnny may coax a stubborn Taurus like Amber out of her love of routine. But as Johnny flits from movie set to movie set and back and forth continents, will his wife-to-be end up feeling insecure and alone?

As is common with side-by-side zodiac matches, the differences might clash as much as they complement. A Gemini's fickle behavior might eventually be a turn-off for steady Taurus. Likewise, Johnny could feel too pinned down by his grounded partner at the end. The biggest key is open communication. A Taurus like Amber needs to ensure she communicates clearly; otherwise, in heated disagreements, a Gemini's verbal instigations may cause a Taurus to fume silently and then later erupt with fights often lasting for days. Johnny will also have to watch out if it appears he's flirting with a co-star because Taurus natives are known to have a powerful jealous streak and tend to be possessive of their partners. However, if the two signs give each other some leeway, the pair has the potential to find long-term romantic bliss.
