The outgoing Year of the Dog has seen a lot when it comes to the matters of the heart. There were a few new romances that made the hopeless romantic giddy. But, sadly, the year also witnessed some seemingly compatible couples end their relationships.

StarStudio.ph interviewed feng shui expert Marites Allen to tell us why the stars broke up these celebrity couples. “On a positive note, some breakups have to happen for the better,” she points out.

To get a better view of their compatibility based on their Chinese zodiac, we provided Marites with the celebrity couples’ respective birthdays and then she made a chart forecast. The chart forecast shows three parts: Stem, Branch, and Hidden Stems.

The “stem” is what is seen externally, the “branch” is what’s inside the person, and the “hidden stems” have yet to be nourished by the person. The combination of the hour, day, month, and year also shows which of the five elements (water, fire, wood, earth, and metal) is/are stronger in each person.

Let’s look back on the couples who had broken up in 2018, and why they were fated to part ways based on their day, month, and year of birth. (Note: for efficiency purposes, we did not get the stars’ time of birth.)
