Uncle Joe in the Hot Seat

Back in January I predicted that June 2021 would be a difficult time for the Joe Biden administration and, in a sense it was, with the Senate playing political football with his infrastructure bill. However, the first really significant stumble of his presidency came in the month of August with the disastrous withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan.

I have to admit that this caught me by surprise. I could attribute it all to Neptune crawling slowly retrograde toward Biden’s I.C. (Click here to see a horoscope for Joe Biden.) Also, we have transiting Pluto opposed to Biden’s natal Jupiter (in the Eighth House of inherited problems.) And, at least for the last couple of days, Mars has been transiting Biden’s Midheaven. This is often a passage that brings us more than our fair share of abuse. Still, I’m a bit mystified with how these transits worked out.

One possibility is that, despite all the furor and finger-pointing this is currently dominating the news, this seemingly disastrous event will not “stick” to Biden the way some political analysis say that it will. The fact is that most people in this country were in favor of our withdrawal of Afghanistan, When the dust settles, which I’m sure will take a while, relief that we are no longer fighting in Afghanistan will outweigh the ugliness that characterized our withdrawal.

Of course, there’s another way of looking at this event. Back when Biden was running for the nomination I pointed out that he had his Sun placed in the Twelfth House of imprisonment and hardship. Three other US Presidents have had this placement of the Sun in their horoscopes: Ulysses Grant, Jimmy Carter and George W. Bush. The presidencies of all these men were marred by scandal and foreign policy disasters.

One of the primary features of the Grant presidency was a major economic depressions and financial malfeasance that reached all the way up to his most trusted advisors. Jimmy Carter’s administration was effectively ended when Iranian radicals took American diplomats hostage. And, of course, George W. Bush was president during the 9/11 attack,He then ordered the disastrous invasion of Iraq and the beginning of the Afghan war that we are just now ending. All of these presidents took a lot of Twelfth House heat for what happened during their years in office. Apparently, its time for Joe Biden to get his share of the Twelfth House curse.
