This is fourth in a series of profiles of Democratic candidates running for president in 2020.  While I have made every effort to appear impartial, my personal bias may bleed through and for that I apologize in advance.  Other profiles can be found here: Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren.

Update: Kamala Harris dropped out of the presidential race in early December 2019. 

Like many others, I first noticed Kamala Harris during the Brett Kavanaugh hearings.  Her composure and eloquence impressed me, as did her ability to make a devastating point with steely precision such as when she asked Kavanaugh, regarding the abortion law question, if he knew of any laws “that the government has power to make over the male body[.]”

As of the date of this writing, Harris is #4 in most polls.  We are fortunate to have accurate birth information for Harris; a birth certificate was provided to the Mountain Astrologer magazine.  Her Sun is in late Libra, the sign of tact and diplomacy.  The Libra personality can be the consummate salesperson as there is an innate sense of what people are looking for and an ability to morph into the personality that will provide it.  This often makes them extremely likeable but depending on other factors, the need to be liked does not build the kind of resilience that is required for the presidency.

Fortunately for Harris, she was born under an Aries Full Moon, ruled by the fire of Mars.  The balance and interplay between the “iron fist in the velvet glove” of the Libra Sun with the fiery Aries Moon has been interesting to watch.  She […]

The astrology of Elizabeth Warren, presidential candidate 2020

Embed from Getty Images

Although this is a political post, I am attempting to keep it free from bias on my end.  Please do the same in the comments!  This is an astrological blog and here we look at the astrology behind the politics rather than the politics themselves.  There are plenty of other places for those discussions. 

Elizabeth Warren is currently polling at #4 in the long list of Democratic candidates for the presidency, and she is #3 in my series of profiles (actually, Harris is now polling at #3, we’ll look at Harris next).  See also Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders, profiled in these pages. 

Elizabeth Warren has a long academic history and was a debate champion in high school. Her childhood was apparently marked by economic deprivation, going to work at the age of 13 to help her family pay medical bills from her father’s illness. After graduating from law school she specialized in bankruptcy law and has a longtime interest in families who undergo bankruptcy due to economic hardship.

The astrological chart for Elizabeth Warren (born June 22, 1949 in Oklahoma, no birth time available) shows that she has the Sun in Cancer, the sign of emotional sensitivity and nurturing.  One thing I have noticed about Cancer Sun people is that they CARE – about everything.  Everyone’s suffering becomes particularly poignant and personal for people with a strong Cancerian element in their chart, and Warren also has Venus (relating) in Cancer which intensifies this even more.  That said, her Sun is very tightly conjunct Uranus, the planet of rebellion and change.  She is a visionary and has an eye for outmoded patterns and institutions which are no longer working, and a desire to create change to […]

Bernie Sanders in 2020 – the astrological perspective

Embed from Getty Images

A portion of this article was taken from my 2016 profile which you can read here in its entirety. 

When Bernie Sanders ran for president in 2016 he was an unlikely candidate.  In 2020, however, he is one of the most widely recognized of the 22 Democrats running in the 2020 presidential race.  A look at Bernie’s astrological chart tells us a great deal about his personality.

Bernie Sanders (September 8, 1941, Brooklyn NY, time unknown) was born with the Sun in Virgo, the sign of service and humility.  His Sun is conjunct the North lunar Node, the point that shows us the way towards our future destiny.  Sun/North Node people typically have a sense from childhood that they have a special mission to fulfill – a particular path to walk.  For Sanders, this mission is exacerbated by a strong square from Jupiter, the planet of confidence and expansion.  When Jupiter is square to the Sun there is a sense of righteousness and potentially, entitlement.  This combination denotes an individual who is certain of their destiny and their right to fulfill it.

We don’t know Sanders’ ascendant (rising sign) without a time of birth (there is conflicting and speculative information out there, but nothing reliable), but his Aries Moon shows his fiery and passionate nature, especially since is Moon aligns with Mars, the planet that energizes and motivates us, but which also adds an aggressive quality to the chart.  This is especially true because Mars is in Aries, its own sign, which essentially doubles the intensity of the assertive quality.

The Mars/Aries dynamic quality is out of sync with the humility of Virgo, and finding a way to balance those two forces has likely been one of the themes of Sanders’ life.  Sanders’ chart lacks […]

The astrology of Joe Biden’s last chance

Embed from Getty Images

This is the first in a series of profiles on the Democratic presidential candidates.  Disclaimer:  While I attempt to be as fair as possible, I do have opinions and they often leak through in this column.  Please take this into consideration when reading this article.

Joe Biden would like to be president.  His first attempt to run back in 1988 was sabotaged by accusations of plagiarism, and his second attempt in 2008 resulted in the election of Barack Obama with Biden achieving the position of Vice President.  Joe (to me he is just Joe, rather than Mr. Biden) was born with four planets in Scorpio which qualifies him as much as any other candidate, since more US presidents have had the Sun in Scorpio than any other astrological sign except for Aquarius, with which it is tied.  Scorpio is the sign that is concerned – ok, obsessed – with power and the wielding of it.

We have a birth time for Joe:  8:30 am, as sourced by astro.com and indicated “from memory” which is not very reliable.  However, that birth time gives us an ascendant or rising sign of Sagittarius which does make sense and reflects Joe’s down home folksiness which is not at all what you would expect from someone with four planets in Scorpio.  He may be easygoing, but make no mistake – he is a fighter, and he wants to win.  With his Moon in stable Taurus, he is stubborn and does not like to back down so he will not give up easily.  His Moon is challenged in a square to Pluto, creating even more intensity and the deprivation of his early […]
