…and Ari Onassis said: “Battista, Battista, I’ve come to marry your wife.”
This post is dedicated to a great love story between 2 of the most famous Greeks on the planet: Maria Callas and Aristotle Onassis. There will be magic, blood, love, fire and of course, drama. My kind of story!
Maria Callas was born on the 2nd of December and that makes her a full crazy Sagittarius, the sign that we celebrate all month on myLittleAstrology. She was of a Greek origin and born in New York and had a grand voice. It is said that she was one of the most renowned and influential opera singers of the 20th century. As a child, she was clumsy and unpopular, but she was able to make extra money out of her lovely voice. She had a sad childhood that ended up in her parents deteriorating marriage and divorce. As a student she proved to be fanatical, uncompromising and dedicated to her studies heart and soul. Her progress was phenomenal. She studied five or six hours a day with no effort. In a very short time, she became La Divina.
Aristotle Socrates Onassis was born on the 20th of January and that makes him a Capricorn, a sign of ambition, career and extreme wealth and power, exactly the way he was. The son of a Greek merchant in the Turkish port of Smyrna, he made his fortune importing tobacco to Argentina and having a shipping business in New York.
She was 35 years old and she had been married to the elderly Battista Meneghini for ten years now. He was 51 and he wanted to have Maria from the first moment he saw her. He pursued her relentlessly. Maria started receiving huge bunch of red roses with good wishes in Greek, signed Aristotle Onassis.
Two years later, in the Mediterranean, Onassis seduced Maria on the yacht Christina, despite being married at the time to Tina Livanos (who, like Callas’s husband, was on the yacht at the moment).At one time, Ari went to Maria’s house and said “Battista, Battista, I’ve come to marry your wife.” The lovers divorced their spouses and embarked on a tempestuous affair that lasted until Onassis’s death, but Maria and Aristotle never married. When Onassis was dying, he took his last gift from Maria, a red Hermès blanket, to the hospital with him. He died alone. Maria Callas died, heartbroken, 2 years later.
Compatibility between Sagittarius and Capricorn? Well, by all means no! Sagittarius and Capricorn are true and exact opposites: Sagittarius is easy going, always jumps headfirst into new things, and is typically impatient and a little crazy. Capricorn is detail-oriented and ambitious, and is always looking toward the next project or the next big business of his.
The good thing? They can learn a lot from each other: Sagittarius can show Capricorn adventure and can offer a glimpse of the freedom; Capricorn teaches Sagittarius to pay attention to details, uncovers the knowledge that the little things are important. Sagittarius is a Fire Sign and Capricorn is an Earth Sign. Sagittarius initiates projects after a philosophical evaluation, while Capricorn takes more practical, factual approach and starts a business. Sagittarius is not a very good leader, but when Sagittarius has a good idea he just wants to contribute to it. Sagittarius enjoys doing their part in the job. Capricorn, on the other hand, comes up with the ideas and assigns roles to others. He is the leader and sees where this good idea is going in about 10 years from now. So, they go well together as there is no conflict in their roles.
Sagittarius and Capricorn are very different, but with great effort, they can have a happy life together.
