Horoscopes Joe Biden and J.F. Kennedy and USA’s Saturn in Libra in the 10th house

On October 16th, I copied and pasted a number of posts on the US election that I had published on my Liz Hathway Astrologer page on Facebook. Below are a further two posts on next week’s election. The first was posted on FB – the second is a spin off from my weekly vlog.

Posted on FB on 19 October, 12.06: Comparing the horoscopes of J.F. Kennedy and Joe Biden

My reply to a comment on one of my previous posts served to remind me of an interesting similarity in the horoscopes of Joe Biden and John Fitzgerald Kennedy. JFK was the first Catholic President of the United States. JFK – like Joe Biden has Neptune in the 10th house. As a child, the idea of being able to ‘confess’ really attracted me. This might have been linked to a movie I had seen, where Spencer Tracy played the part of a priest who took a murderer’s confession but couldn’t talk to the police. Anyway, there is no disputing the redemptive and therapeutic dimension of Neptunian confession. Later, I was more fascinated by the magical aspect of Catholicism, in particular with transubstantiation. Both redemption and magic have an association with Neptune. Another point of interest though, is the fact that JFK was elected/ inaugurated under a Jupiter/Saturn conjunction in Capricorn. Biden – if I am right and he wins this election – will be inaugurated close to the Jupiter/Saturn conjunction in Aquarius.

The importance of Venus in Libra

In my weekly look at the week ahead on YouTube this week, I discussed the importance to next week’s Presidential Election of  the Venus ingress into her sign of rulership Libra. In the Sibly horoscope of the US – the only horoscope for the United States I have ever worked with – Venus rules the midheaven and Saturn exalted in Libra is in the 10th house. To my mind, an exalted planet has an exaggerated sense of its own importance – it is puffed up in some way. Saturn in Libra – governs law, balance of power, discourse in public life, important partnerships, a need to uphold a high reputation. In her book ‘Soul Sick Nation’ Jessica Murray mentions the term ‘the Big Daddy of the world’ when discussing  US Saturn in the 10th, she also relates it to the US need to be a role model, to uphold an ideal of success attained through hard work, ‘the righteous world cop’ and the desire to stand for something (see Soul Sick Nation, pages 54-67). In my vlog, I used the term ‘aesthetics’ for Venus in Libra, because this position really is connected to an appreciation of beauty, harmony and fair play, what Venus in Libra rejects, is the uncouth, the raucous, the brutish, the unpleasant. Venus is also connected to victory – and around the US midheaven she is passionate in her desire for a more harmonious atmosphere in the public arena, a desire for a more polite, cleaner and altogether more civilized way of getting things done. The American people are very proud of their nation and judging by the exceptionally high turn out thus far, I interpret Venus crossing the midheaven as a genuine desire within the collective for a return to civilized, decent form of leadership. I think the American people will reject Donald Trump and his polarizing, ill mannered, ‘bull at a gate’ approach to running the country. All things considered, I think Biden will win this election comfortably – since of the two – he is clearly the more able to reflect US exalted Libra in the 10th.
