Joe Biden is back. A remarkable turnaround to a sagging campaign has struck it rich on Super Tuesday, narrowing the democratic field down to two – himself and Sanders.
Tr Jupiter is trine his Midheaven exactly now, birth time being accurate, for an uplift; and is also sextile his Sun/Mars midpoint and about to sextile his Mercury. Those are mildish influences and it says a good deal for his stamina that he has managed to overcome the tr Neptune opposition his Mars/Jupiter midpoint which picked up late February; and returns on and off into 2021 which tends not to bring success.
His fortunes are mixed in the near future – or at least his state of mind is – with tr Saturn conjunct his Solar Arc Mars and both square his Moon from early April to mid June, which might coincide with a stamina or health slump as well as an irritable mood. He is 77 and the pace on any campaign is punishing, this one especially. Tr Saturn squares his Jupiter/Pluto midpoint at the same time which tends to dent enthusiasm, bringing difficulties and separations.
Late March through April he’ll be gloomy with tr Neptune square his Moon/Pluto; with upsets and irritability also in April.
Tr Uranus picks up the square to his Pluto in May, repeating on and off into 2021. This can go either way, bringing huge upheavals for good or for ill. It may not immediately be obvious since his Pluto is anchored into his intense, super-determined Mars in Scorpio.
September to late October tr Saturn opposes his Jupiter which may bring financial shortages or a confidence dip. From late August to late December tr Pluto squares his Mars/Neptune midpoint which is generally not an indication of plans working out. Though, just to be tricky, tr Jupiter joins in over the election which will help lift the luck a touch. October to late January he’s also got a re-run of tr Neptune opposition his Mars/Jupiter midpoint which Ebertin describes as feelings of inferiority, plans without hope, delayed or difficult birth.
His Solar Return for November 2020 puts an upfront Sun in the 1st; with an exceptionally busy Pluto, Jupiter, Noon, Saturn in the 3rd – it doesn’t look super-successful but won’t be a quiet retirement.
The above influences are all about his personal reaction to the swings and roundabouts of the next few months and may not always mirror the results.
Jill Biden, his wife, born 3 June 1951 in New Jersey, is a teacher – a second marriage for both since his first wife and infant daughter died in a car crash and she was divorced. He had two other boys from his first marriage and he and Jill have a daughter.
Jill is an upfront and assertive Sun Mars in Gemini sitting on one leg of a talented Half Grand Sextile from a Jupiter in pro-active Aries opposition Neptune, sextile Pluto and Sun Mars – a go-getter and lucky as well as ambitious.
It’s an odd relationship with her strong Fire/Air temperament and his intensely emotional Sun, Venus, Mercury, Mars in Scorpio. She does have Venus in Cancer conjunct his Jupiter which will help but they are chalk and cheese. And her Sun Mars, maybe Gemini Moon, sits in his 7th conjunct his Saturn Uranus so it won’t all be sweetness and light.
Their relationship chart has a marked Jupiter which will help to smooth rough edges and bring enthusiasm – it squares the composite Sun and trines Neptune, sextile Saturn, which will bring some balance. The needs-space composite Venus square Uranus has probably been surmountable because of their respectively active careers.
She’s looking especially cheered up come late May into June and even more so in July to late September with tr Uranus conjunct her Mars/Jupiter and then Sun/Jupiter midpoints, repeating over the election. But whether that’s because he’s winning or she’s released from the rigours of campaigning as he retires isn’t clear.
