Joe Biden and the Twelfth House SunBidenJoeImage

Joe Biden’s announcement that he was running for the Democratic nomination for president in 2020 was essentially a non-event. Biden has been the front-runner in the polls from the beginning and he has been behaving like a candidate for some time now. The fact that it was  non-event is evident in the astrology. Unlike many of our other contenders, Biden’s announcement coincided with no significant astrological indicators.

I’ve recently written twice about Joe Biden and his candidacy. (Click on “The Contenders: Joe Biden” and “Uncle Joe Gets Handsy” to see those articles.) What I want of focus on now that it is official the he might be president is the placement of the Sun in the Twelfth House in his natal horoscope. (Click on Joe Biden to see the chart.)

Among the presidents for whom we have birth times and complete horoscopes (and there are quite a few of them) three were born with the Sun in the Twelfth House. They are Ulysses S. Grant, Jimmy Carter and George W. Bush.

Seth Moulton Announces

So, another person has thrown his hat into the ring. And, boy, do we need a bigger ring. By my count, Seth Moulton is the 18th person to announce his candidacy for the 2020 Democratic nomination, 19th if you count Joe Biden who hasn’t announced but still leads in the polls. At this rate the debates alone will take us through 2021.

Moulton is one of the people that the experts were expecting to enter the race. (We still have four or five those shoes waiting to drop.) He’s an ambitious congressman from Massachusetts who brings extensive military experience (four tours in Iraq) and a centrist agenda to the table. He’s on record comparing Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler.

It is interesting that in Moulton’s announcement his wife appeared on camera comparing her husband to a “tank”, someone who just keeps on coming regardless of the obstacles placed in his way or criticism aimed at him. That’s also a good description of a Scorpio, and Moulton has a bunch of stuff in Scorpio. Along with his Sun, he has Uranus, Mercury, Venus and Mars placed there.

Tiger Woods Makes Like a CapricornWoodsTImage2

I’m not a player or fan of golf, so I wasn’t paying much attention when Tiger Woods won the Masters Tournament last week. However, I’ve written a couple of article on Woods over the years, charting the influence of the planets on the decline of his career, so I thought it only fair that I remark on his comeback. (Click on Tiger Woods to see his natal horoscope.)

The first time I wrote about Woods was in 2011. In that article (Click on "What's Next for Tiger Woods" to see the article) I discussed the events of Dec. 2009 when Woods’ infidelity to his wife was revealed to the world. Not surprisingly, in Dec. 2009 Uranus was on Woods’ Descendant and square his natal Moon. The Descendant is the cusp of the house of partnership and marriage while the Moon rules women.

Following the Moon: April 19, 2019

The main concern I had about the New Moon chart for April 5 (and it was a slight one) was the placement of the Sun and Moon in the Second House of finance square restrictive Saturn. It turns out that, though the stock market did dip during this two week period, it was not a significant plunge and the market has recently made up for most of that loss. (Click here to see the article for that New Moon chart and the horoscope.)

I also predicted that the conjunction of Mercury and Neptune in the First House of that chart would give us a period in which deceptive and unclear statements would dominate. Early in this cycle we had Attorney General William Barr hint that the F.B.I. or C.I.A. “spied” on the Trump campaign. This remark created a bit of a firestorm since there was no evidence to support such a suspicion and it plays perfectly into the narrative of the Trump people that his presidency is being victimized secret forces within the intelligence community.

More recently we had a tweet from the president that attempted to connect congresswoman Ilhan Omar with 9/11. The tweet caused a flurry of death threats directed at Omar. It also further confirmed two facts that were already well-established. The first is that Donald Trump is a bully, the second that, regardless of who wins the Democratic nomination, the Republicans are planning to run against Omar and A.O.C.
