Politics in the United States are a bit chaotic at the moment. It’s common to find people amid disagreements over which side, if any, will be most beneficial for the country. Although political choices are always a matter of opinion, one thing is certain. Everyone could benefit from learning more about their chosen candidate.
You likely already know your candidate’s policies and positions, but have you ever wondered about their horoscope? Taking a look at their sun signs is a great way to gain insight. Today, we’re examining how astrological traits may affect the candidates and their roles in government.Read More »
President Donald Trump
Birthday: June 14, 1946
Is it surprising that one of the most controversial public figures of our time is a Gemini? Although they can be wonderful people, Geminis are sometimes hard for others to understand. They are fast-moving and flexible, and they have a powerful drive to express themselves. You won’t find many Geminis who don’t love conversation. Based on his lengthy speeches, we’re guessing the president is no exception.
The flexibility of a Gemini makes it easy for them to roll with the changes, which is likely one reason we never see Trump remain flustered for long. When something doesn’t work out, he usually pivots his focus onto something new. He also tends to adopt the ideas of those who surround him, which is another Gemini trait.
Vice President Mike Pence
Birthday: June 7, 1959
You might be thinking that Pence and Trump seem to have nothing in common, but this is likely an illusion. Not every Gemini displays their traits in the same manner. Pence might be softer spoken than the president, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t share many of the same qualities.
Like Trump, Pence also can easily adapt to changes happening around him. Perhaps this is why he meshes well with the president. Geminis tend to struggle with boredom. This is one reason they have so many interests. Luckily for Pence, he’s always busy working on things behind the scenes. He worked to rebuild the nation’s space program and helped with the staffing of the federal government.
Presidential Candidate Joe Biden
Birthday: November 20, 1942
It’s not surprising that Biden is a Scorpio given his long history in politics. Scorpios have a reputation for intensity and determination. Biden was a United States senator between 1973 and 2009 before becoming Vice President of the Obama administration. During his time as a senator, he went through many ups and downs, both in his career and his personal life. Not long after he won his seat in the Senate, his wife and daughter were tragically killed in a vehicular accident. More recently, he lost one of his remaining sons to cancer.
Scorpios have a great deal of strength and willpower. It’s easy to see these qualities in Joe Biden. They are motivated by the pursuit of prestige, so his long-term commitment to work in government makes sense.
Another interesting connection is the Scorpio’s tendency to be patient. Some signs want something, and they want it now. Scorpios are more strategic. They will wait for the right time to make their move. We can see this in the fact that Biden chose not to run against Donald Trump for president in 2016. He’d just lost his son to cancer and didn’t feel it was the right time. Now, four years later, he has decided to go for it. Scorpios tend to have great staying power, so if he wins, we’ll likely see him remain president for two terms.
Vice-presidential Candidate Kamala Harris
Birthday: October 20, 1964
Libra is the sign of balance and justice. Therefore, it should come at no surprise that Kamala Harris has a long history in the criminal justice system. Before she became a senator, she was District Attorney in San Francisco between 2004 and 2011. During that time, the conviction rate in the city went up 15 percent. She also worked to crack down on teenage prostitution.
However, much like Trump, Harris has also been widely criticized. Libras often believe in the pursuit of peace and justice at any cost. They seek harmony, but their idealism can result in decisions that others may not agree with. For example, in 2010, Harris supported a law that punished parents of truant schoolchildren. Many people disagreed with the law, and it was eventually reversed.
Since Libras love feeling like they’re making the world a better and more just place, it’s safe to assume Harris would be an active and motivated vice president. A Libra will always be willing to devote their to the pursuit of good works.
Astrology is complex. Along with the sun, the moon and other planetary bodies also effect an individual’s personality. This is why no two people are alike despite having the same sun sign. It’s interesting to see how well these candidates match with their sun signs alone. As for which of them will win, we will all have to wait and see.
