Rumours that Joe Biden has been sidelining his VP Kamala Harris, with both their poll ratings plummeting south, have been stoked by her inner circle and denied by the White House. Her side complain she’s been handed politically-fraught issues with little support while her critics point to her missteps and dysfunctions within her own office.
Their relationship chart is not ideal with a suspicious, doubt-ridden and cool composite Saturn opposition Venus Neptune which squares onto a no-compromise Uranus. At a pinch it could be useful for a joint reforming platform but more likely points to an instability in the relationship, with two strong individuals who want to walk their own path. There’s also a tough, stuck-together-by-circumstances Saturn Moon trine Pluto – which is admittedly sextile Jupiter which will offset some of the bleaker feel.
Tr Pluto has been trailing confusion around this year with a square to the composite Neptune which ends later this month. But tr Neptune is in an enthusiasm-denting and undermining square to the Jupiter from April 2022 onwards, on and off till late 2023. It could turn inwards to dissolve the foundations of their connection, or could be an indication as a pair that they are floundering and not making progress.
Even before then the tr Saturn square tr Uranus is battering the composite Sun Mercury with late this month to mid January looking especially separated, chilly and jolted; and again in March 2022. If it was a marriage it might well split.
President and VP don’t necessarily have to get on but this pair are particularly not well matched with her short-tempered and hard-edged Mars in Leo opposition Saturn in Aquarius squaring Biden’s Sun and other Scorpio planets; with her evasive Neptune conjunct his Mercury and Mars. Her Saturn is also conjunct his South Node which won’t bring out his best side. And Indeed Biden’s South Node is conjunct her Midheaven which wouldn’t suggest a supportive link.
On her personal chart she was always going to face a tough two years from early 2022 with tr Pluto moving through her trapped 8th house square her Libra Sun and her Aries Moon. She also has her Progressed Moon moving through her 12th from three months back until August 2023 which is inward-looking, a time of endings and can be downbeat. All in all she looks log-jammed and not content.
Technically he cannot fire her since she was elected but he could pressure/humiliate her into resigning and is free to say she won’t be his running mate in 2024. There was another suggestion that he could nominate her for the Supreme Court but how sound that is I’ve no idea.
