on an unconscious and subconscious level, however, and the reserve of guilt and shame would grow steadily, making him feel increasingly unsafe.  is would prompt him to take random, inconstant, and very public action
with his Mars in Gemini in the Tenth House, and since those actions would always use force, they would make the situation worse, adding to his guilt, and increasing his subconscious need for someone to step in and hold him accountable.

Because Simpson’s Neptune conjoins Brown’s Moon, she was unable to see the lack of safety in the relationship, even when it became obvious to everyone else.
 e  rst documented assault occurred on January 1, 1989, four months after Brown gave birth to their second child. It’s quite possible that since Brown  rst became a mother, that her attention began to shift from Simpson
to her daughter. With the birth of the second child, her Saturn in Capricorn responsibilities may have kicked in. Whatever the circumstances,

probably Simpson’s success and

he couldn’t get other people to

Simpson’s lack of safety and validation reached a critical low in the relationship, and he reacted with physical violence
