Reconsidering Amy KlobucharKolbucharAmyImage

Every week we seem to have a different woman rumored to be the frontrunner for Biden’s running mate. One week it’s Kamala Harris. On another it’s Elizabeth Warren. On another it’s Amy Klobuchar. Back when Klobuchar dropped out of the presidential race, I had wondered if her sudden decision to fold came with a promise of greater things to come from the Biden campaign. I thought this because the aspects in Klobuchar chart at that time were so positive. Of course, that was several months ago and both the political and astrological climate has changed.

There is no doubt that Klobuchar has something to offer the Biden campaign. She’s relatively young, a moderate (like Joe Biden) and she’s the Senator from Minnesota. Democrats need to carry some of these midwestern states if they hope to win in November. On the negative side, there’s a lot pressure on Biden right now to choose woman of color as his VP and that Klobuchar is not.

Following the Moon: May 22, 2020

I think that we can all agree that the Neptunian lack of clarity that has been pervasive since pretty much the beginning of this crisis was not in any way alleviated during the past two weeks. This period featured a sharp disagreement between President Trump and Dr. Anthony Fauci about the long-term impact of the Coronavirus, questions about the reported number of deaths attributed to the virus and claims by the President’s son that it’s all a hoax perpetrated by evil Democrats. This is Neptune at its ambiguous, who-do-you-believe worst.

In my description of the Full Moon chart for May 7, I predicted this. (Click here to see the article and the chart.)  I also predicted that the general populous would, nonetheless, be feeling pretty positive. I think we saw this, as most of the nation began the slow process of reopening after two months of staying home. The prospect of returning to normal, as distant as it might be, had most of us feeling upbeat.

Another thing I saw in the May 7 Full Moon chart was the possibility of conflict involving our leadership. Fortunately, that did not manifest as a confrontation with Iran or North Korea, as I had feared. Instead, we had the President at war with science, as he announced that he was taking a drug that he has been touting as great breakthrough in the treatment of Covid 19 but that medical experts, including the CDC, claim has not proven to be effective and has several detrimental side effects.

GrishamM LujanImageWill Michelle Lujan Grisham be Biden's Running Mate?

Joe Biden has vowed to choose a woman as a running mate for the November election. Many people are pressing him to pick a woman of color, such as Stacy Abrams or Kamala Harris.   (Click on the names to see my articles on these women.) But there are also people who fear that the Democratic Party is losing support in the Latino community and they want Biden to pick a Latino running mate. Among the women who is being considered is the Governor of New Mexico, Michelle Lujan Grisham.

Politically, Grisham has much to recommend her. Before her election as Governor in 2018, she served in the U.S. House of Representatives, so she has experience at both the federal level and (as governor) in an executive position. As governor Grisham championed the repeal of New Mexico’s antiquated and unenforceable anti-abortion law. She was not successful, but she showed herself to be a fighter. On the negative side, Grisham lacks the nationwide name recognition or Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren or even Stacy Abrams.

Astrologically, we are once again limited by the fact that we don’t have a time of birth for Grisham. (Click on Michelle Lujan Grisham to see a partial horoscope done for noon on her date of birth.) What we can see even in this partial horoscope, however, reveals that Grisham really is a fighter. She has the Sun on the first degree of Scorpio conjunct Mars. This is for sure the horoscope of a warrior. Her Moon could be in either Cancer or Leo. It could also possibly be square her natal Sun and Mars, which would certainly increase the warrior signature, perhaps a little bit too much.

Will Elizabeth Warren be Biden’s VP?

Of all of last year’s contenders for the Democratic nomination for whom we did not have a time of birth (and there were a lot of them) the one that gave me the most trouble, astrologically, was Elizabeth Warren. I struggled to find aspects that explained the surge in her candidacy that we saw in late 2019. The same goes for her disappointing showing in the early primaries in 2020. Of course, without a time of birth, there is much about Warren’s chart that I cannot see and, apparently, it is the stuff I couldn’t see that was calling the shots in Warren’s life during that period.

However, I was right about one thing. This was with regard to her secondary progressed chart. In that chart Warren’s progressed Sun and Saturn are square her natal Mars and Mercury. I wrote back in January 2019 (click here to see that article and Warren’s chart) that this would severely limit her chances of winning the nomination. Secondary progressed aspect tend to function on a personal level, so I had expected a major dip in Warren’s energy level to sabotage her campaign. This did not happen. Instead, these aspects seem to have worked against her on a public level, in her inability to convince Democratic voters that she was the “one”.
