Kamala Harris, the tough-on-crime former Attorney General of California now a senator, has been selected as Joe Biden’s running mate. Much has been made of her Indian-Jamaican background though she describes herself simply as ‘an American.’
She has a Libra Sun in her performing 5th house opposition an Aries Moon, so she’s vivacious and outgoing, likes an audience and with Mars in Leo in the 3rd opposition Saturn in her 9th won’t back away from a fight, indeed will stir up arguments. That latter is softened to a degree by being square Jupiter in Taurus which has a range of meanings from arrogant, overly indulgent to an enlightened social administrator.
What is standing her in good stead this year and next are two influences. One is the confident and success-attracting tr Pluto trine her focal point Jupiter around earlier this year and returning late this December to late January 2021 across the Inauguration and on and off through 2021.
The other is tr Uranus square her Sun/Jupiter midpoint which brings sudden success and good fortune and is exact now. It picked up early July running till late September and returns in the spring and again across the New Year into 2022.
Across the Inauguration as well she has her Progressed Moon conjunct her Progressed Jupiter and both trine her Venus in Virgo – all exact. That is minor enough but will give a warm glow.
On the less rapturous side she has a downbeat tr Saturn square her Sun and Moon November 14th to 26 but that can be extra hard work rather than a setback. Following that into early December she has a blocked tr Saturn square her Solar Arc Midheaven. She also has tr Pluto in opposition to a couple of her Mars midpoints from late August to late November which will be combative, argumentative and can be frustrating, infuriating and trapped, which again could be the rough and tumble of what will undoubtedly be a toxic campaign and maybe a delayed result.
Just after the Inauguration Jupiter moves into her 9th for a year of perhaps more extensive travel than usual.
She’s a marginally odd mix with Biden though there’s nothing to say the President and VP have to be BFFs. Her outspoken Mars opposition Saturn squares his Scorpio Sun, Mercury, Venus though that will be mellowed marginally by her Jupiter being in opposition to his Scorpio planets. And her Venus in Virgo is conjunct his Midheaven so she will bring charm and PR abilities to bear on his career.
Their relationship chart is not easy with a suspicious and doubting composite Saturn Opposition Neptune Venus square Uranus. If they can focus their co-operation on social reform and innovative projects they’ll do OK but otherwise it’ll be a rocky and at times muddled partnership. What will help to steady it and bring luck/success is Jupiter trine Venus Neptune sextile Pluto which will give them an aura of a power couple.
ADD ON: Kam v Trump
She’s likely to press all of Trump’s hot buttons given his misogyny and racism.
Her Saturn opposes his Mars for an aggravated interface with her Pluto square his Uranus (and Sun and Moon) so she won’t budge easy. What is intriguing – from an astrological point of view – is that her Jupiter is exactly conjunct his Midheaven which usually suggests the Jupiterian one will assist the career prospects of the Midheavener. There might be a sense in which she will try to teach Trump to acquire a sense of cultural responsibility and ethics in professional life. Hah. Interesting to see how it plays out.
What is clear from the relationship chart is there is visceral dislike and a fight-the-the-death power struggle with a volcano of bad feeling – from a composite Sun, Mars, Pluto, Venus conjunction opposition Moon.
His relationship chart with Joe Biden is nowhere near as toxic. There’s a differing-agenda, needs-space composite Sun square Uranus; and an only-one-can-win Mars Neptune – but it’s Kamala Harris that will set off his uncontrolled fuse.
