The Debate: Sept. 12, 2019 (Part Two)DonkeySymbol

In my last entry I discussed the transiting aspects impacting the horoscopes of Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Pete Buttigieg, Beto O’Rourke and Amy Klobuchar on the night of the next Democratic debate. (Click here to see that article.) Now I’m going to look at the horoscope for the five Democratic candidates for whom we have a time of birth and a complete horoscope. Click on the candidates name to see his or her horoscope.


Joe Biden – In part one of this series I pointed out that Mars, Neptune and Jupiter will be forming a T-sqaure at the time of the debate. Biden is going to be feeling some of that T-square energy. Mars and Neptune are near (within a couple of degrees) his M.C., I.C angle and Jupiter is in the middle of his First House. I think that, over the long haul, the Neptune side of this T-square is going to be an impediment for Biden, but Thursday night  the Jupiter side will predominate and that should help him. Also, at the time of the debate, the Sun will be conjunct Biden’s Midheaven. As the front-runner, Biden is going to definitely be the star of the show but, since the Sun is trine Pluto at that time, he’s going to have to be a star on the defensive end of the court.


Cory Booker – Cory Booker comes into this debate with a lot of good things going on in his horoscope. Transiting Mercury and Venus are conjunct his natal Jupiter while transiting Jupiter is crossing his natal Mars. Booker is going to be showing a lot of Jupiterian swagger and he probably thinks that he has a strategy for every eventuality that might come up in the debate. However, the big aspect for him on Thursday will be the conjunction of transiting Uranus to his natal Sun and, when Uranus is in the picture, plans tend to fall apart before your eyes. Booker might still have a stellar night, but he’s going to have to make adjustment on the fly and this is not typically a strength for Sun sign Taurus people.


Julian Castro – Castro is probably feeling frustrated as he enters this debate. He performed fairly well in the first two debates. He spoke with authority and intelligence, and yet, his poll numbers are still on life-support. His problem is the transit of Pluto across his Descendant, an aspect that often places a person in situations in which they seem overwhelmed by forces they can’t control. Right now Pluto is moving retrograde away from Castro’s Descendant and he might catch a glimpse of light at the end of the tunnel, but it’s a long, long tunnel and by the time Castro get to the end of it, the election will be over.


Kamala Harris – After the first Democratic debate Kamala Harris enjoyed a surge, but since then her campaign has been slipping in the wrong direction. I’m not seeing much help for Harris in this next debate. The big T-square will be active in her chart but the natal planet it will be impacting is Pluto. This indicates that she is going to be on the defensive most of the night. As a former prosecutor, this is an unfamiliar role for Harris and I expect her to stumble. She might be better off giving her combative Aries Moon a rest for a night and relying on her “can’t-we-all-get-along” Libra Sun.


Andrew Yang – While Harris’ numbers have been wilting during the past few weeks, Yang’s campaign has been surging. He’s gone from that crazy guy who wants to give everyone free money to a candidate whose intellectual grasp of the issues has to be respected. This is not surprising. He’s in the midst of an important Saturn Cycle aspect. Transiting Saturn is opposite his natal Saturn. Yang legitimately feels that he is at a turning point in his life and he’s acting accordingly. The T-square on Thursday will be hit close to his natal Jupiter. Yang is going to enter the debate with the same kind of Jupiterian confidence and swagger that I predicted for Cory Booker. The difference is that Yang is going to be better able to direct and benefit that confidence. It should be a good night for him.
