Back in 2017 Rachel Lindsay was unmarried and looking for love. She tried out as a contestant for The Bachelor and became one of many attractive women who vied for the love of Bachelor, Nick Viall. Sadly she placed third, but it was announced that Lindsay was chosen to be a Bachelorette and would have her choice of dozens of attractive young men.
When her time came around it was announced to be the most “diverse cast in the Bachelor Nation franchise history. Presumably that meant contestants of various backgrounds, heights and widths. Rachel was “courted” and “wooed”. In the end she chose Bryan Abasolo.
“Rachel, Rachel, Rachel, Rachel.
When I first stepped put of that limo,
I knew I was in for the ride of my life.
When we first kissed, it was literally like
a chemistry bomb had just exploded
and I just knew that first night,
a hundred percent certainty in my heart
that we definitely could be something
special. You are everything I could ever
want in a woman, a wife, the mother of my
children. I’m completely head-over-heels,
totally, absolutely in love with you,
I just hope you feel the same”
– Bryan to Rachel
… This love has been so mature,
it’s tested me in ways that I couldn’t
have even imagined. And I always said
that I would know that the person that
I’m supposed to is someone that I could
never picture my life without. So right
here, in this moment standing with you,
I see my forever and I see my future.
Wait! And I just wanna tell you that
I love you and I’m in love with you,
and I can’t imagine spending my
life with anybody else!”
– Rachel to Bryan
The two of them became engaged, got married in a private ceremony,
and moved to Miami where Abasolo was a doctor of chiropractic medicine.
When Rachel was offered employment in the entertainment industry,
Abasolo closed down his medical practice, and moved to California .
#71 FRI AQU
#02 SUN TAU
Bryon Abasolo was born on Friday in the zodiac sign of Aquarius. Venus is his INNER RULER. Saturn and Uranus are his OUTER RULERS. He is an unconventional guy who thinks for himself and might be hesitant in showing his feelings until he is sure. You can count on him being truthful.
Rachel Lindsay was born on a Sunday in the zodiac sign of Taurus. The Sun is her INNER RULER and and Venus is her OUTER RULER. Together these two energies create a confident and strong-minded individual. She wants her life to be one of comfort, beauty and passion. Why not?
The best thing these two have going for them is Venus. He has Venus as his INNER RULER and Venus operates as her OUTER RULER. This is a great connection for affection and attraction. If Lindsey is willing to do what is OUTWARDLY necessary for their stability and Bryon is allowed to look out for their spiritual interests, it really doesn’t matter how or where they met. Still there are no guarantees in life, not even with astrology. “The stars incline: they do not bind.”
As Dayology goes these two lovers have one major problem. Their Sun Signs, Taurus and Aquarius are in square aspect on the zodiac wheel. Squares act in a rigid manner but overtime they can build up relationships. If a pair can work out their differences, a square can hold them together. Another problem is the difference in personal temperaments. Individuals with Taurus Suns are usually rather traditional while Aquarians are always unconventional.
UPDATE – 6/9/2020. In an ET Interview Rachel Lindsay reports that she and Bryan Abasolo have had some tough discussions, “People were not receptive to our relationship at the end of The Bachelorette. So, we’ve always had to develop a thick skin and figure out how to navigate this world as an interracial couple. We did that from the very beginning,” Lindsay is a black American. and Abasolo is Colombian. They want their future kids “to experience both cultures.” she revealed to ET. “They’ll be bilingual and they’ll understand both cultures.”
UPDATE – 1/24/2024. The news is that Bryon Abasolo filed for divorce from Rachel Lindsay, citing “irreconcilable differences.” Abasolo explained the decision on Instagram: “After more than 4 years of marriage, Rachel and I have made the difficult decision to part ways and start anew. My parents have been married forever and I’m a family man, but sometimes loving yourself and your partner means you must let go. I wanted you to hear it from the source before the blogs start making up their own reality. Please respect the spaces of our family and friends as we figure out our next steps.”
UPDATE -1/30/2024. In U.S. Magazine Bryon Abasolo stated “To be fair, we’ve been living together for almost 3 years here in LA. Not sure why people think we’ve been apart this entire time.” He explained the basis of their past decisions and why things may not have worked out for them as planned. “Yes, her career came first, but there were opportunities for her that were smart for her to take which could have not been offered later. It’s hard as it is for women of color to get big gigs which I’ve observed through watching Rachel’s efforts.”
