Christina Haack and Tarek El Moussa’s Marriage Was Doomed to Fail, Based on Their Zodiac Signs

Christina Haack and Tarek El Moussa built a family and an empire together. They share two children and created the hit HGTV show Flip or Flop, which ran for 10 seasons. They continued working on the reality series together amid their divorce, but ultimately went their separate ways both personally and professionally. Could astrology have predicted the end of Haack and El Moussa’s marriage, based on their zodiac signs? Here’s what the stars say about their relationship.

Christina Haack is a Cancer zodiac sign

Flip or Flop star Christina Haack was born on July 9, 1983, making her a Cancer zodiac sign. The date range for Cancer is from around June 21 to July 22, so the Christina on the Coast star is a full Cancer with no cusp influences from her neighboring signs. 

Each zodiac sign belongs to one of the four natural elements: earth, fire, air, or water. Cancer is ruled by the water element, and water signs are typically very sensitive, emotional, and compassionate. As a Cancer, Haack probably feels her emotions very deeply, and she likely falls fast and hard in love. These traits were evident in the HGTV star’s whirlwind romance with her ex-husband Ant Anstead, whom she married the same year her divorce from Tarek El Moussa was finalized, and her recent marriage to real estate agent Joshua Hall after less than a year of dating. 

The zodiac sign Cancer is represented by the crab, and just like their spirit animal, Cancer people would carry their homes on their backs with them at all times if they could. It’s no wonder that Haack is such a successful interior designer – her star sign loves creating comfy, beautiful spaces and turning a house into a home. 

Cancer is also known as “the Mother” of the zodiac. Haack frequently posts about her love for her three children on social media, and she has mentioned in several interviews that her kids are her first priority.

Tarek El Moussa is a Leo zodiac sign

Christina Haack’s ex-husband Tarek El Moussa was born on Aug. 21, 1981, making him a Leo. Since the cutoff dates for being a Leo range from about July 23 to Aug. 22, El Moussa is close to being a Virgo, so he may possess some personality traits of his neighboring zodiac sign. 

Leo is a fire sign, and fire and water signs can either clash or balance each other. As a water sign, Haack could either soothe fiery El Moussa, or make him feel so constricted that it smothers his flames completely. Fire signs tend to be reckless and headstrong, and sensitivity isn’t their strong point. El Moussa could be particularly insensitive due to influences from the brutally honest zodiac sign Virgo. It’s easy to see how arguments and hurt feelings could arise in this relationship dynamic. 

Leo is a fixed sign, and fixed signs are stubborn and strong-willed. Cancer is a cardinal sign, meaning Haack likely enjoys being a leader and being in control. When a cardinal sign and a fixed sign butt heads, it can quickly become an ugly battle for power. 

Finally, Cancer and Leo and neighboring signs, which typically don’t make the best romantic match. They could be great friends or business partners, which Haack and El Moussa have proven through their HGTV empire and co-parenting their two children, but romance is better left off the table.

Christina Haack and Tarek El Moussa continued working together after their divorce

Astrology might have predicted Tarek El Moussa and Christina Haack’s divorce based on their zodiac signs, but the former couple has done an impressive job of putting on a united front at work and for their kids. 

They were together for years before launching their popular HGTV show Flip or Flop in 2013. The former couple got married in 2009 and had two children, 11-year-old daughter Taylor and 6-year-old son Brayden. Their reality house-flipping show ran for 10 seasons, including after Haack and El Moussa divorced in 2018. 

In July 2021, TMZ reported an alarming incident on the Flip or Flop set. El Moussa reportedly went on a verbal tirade comparing his ex to his new partner, Selling Sunset star Heather Rae Young, and said the Netflix star was “hotter and richer” than Haack.

Recently, Haack and El Moussa seem to support each other and co-parent peacefully. In April 2020, Haack told People that the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic helped the exes get on the same page.

“Tarek and I split four years ago. That’s a long time,” Haack explained. “When there are tough times like these, all of a sudden we’re totally a unified front and talk and email multiple times a day.”

The final episode of Flip or Flop aired in March 2022, and the former couple have since gone their separate ways professionally. Haack is filming and co-producing Christina on the Coast and Christina in the Country while El Moussa is filming Flipping 101.
