(25 January 2023) Will US President Joe Biden run once more in 2024? Up till just lately, it
was broadly assumed that the 80-year previous commander-in-chief would search a
second time period in subsequent yr’s election. Regardless of weak approval numbers
borne of overbearing governance and ongoing financial hardship, Biden was
usually anticipated to be the Democrat nominee for president in 2024.
However the controversy following the invention of a number of batches of
labeled paperwork in his non-public residence in Delaware has raised
questions on his electability. Even when this paperwork case could also be
seen as a minor case of unhealthy judgment, what appears totally different this time
round is that the mainstream media look like extra important of
Biden’s actions. After having fun with a reasonably straightforward experience from the left-leaning
MSM prior to now two years, the nearer scrutiny on this difficulty raises the
risk that Biden might not be a lock on the nomination. The
labeled paperwork scandal could be a trial balloon by which the
Democrats search alternate options to Biden for the 2024 election.
Sadly for Biden, his horoscope will come below renewed
stress from Saturn within the coming months. Readers will keep in mind that
for a lot of 2021 and 2022, Biden’s natal Mercury and Mars suffered below
the full-strength sq. facet from Saturn. Whereas the US succeeded in
placing the pandemic behind it early in his administration, the continuing
Saturn affliction in Biden’s chart mirrored the intractable political
divisions within the nation and the rising financial difficulties from
Now, Saturn (1 Aquarius) is forming yet one more prolonged sq.
facet to a minimum of three key factors in his chart — the Solar, Venus
and the Ascendant. The sq. facet from Saturn will first precisely hit
the Solar (4 Scorpio) on February 23, then hit Venus (5 Scorpio) on March
4, after which lastly hit the Ascendant (10 Scorpio) on April 16 or so,
assuming his time of beginning is right. Whereas these precise sq. facets
all lie within the close to future, we must always view Biden’s present issues in
mild of Saturn’s affliction since it’s already nicely inside efficient
vary to those planets. And the actually unhealthy information for Biden is that
Saturn is because of station retrograde in June and can thus come again and
virtually precisely sq. these planets within the fall once more. In
truth, these three factors is not going to be freed from the Saturn affliction till
To make issues even worse, Biden began his Saturn main dasha
interval in September 2022. As a rule, Saturn dasha durations are typically
harder than the previous Jupiter dasha durations (2006-2022) and
that’s seemingly the case for Biden as he was each Vice-President and
President whereas operating the Jupiter main dasha interval. The probability
of troubles and disappointment is much more seemingly for Biden since his
Saturn (16 Taurus) is intently troubled by the eighth home facet of Mars
(19 Scorpio) in his natal chart. The vast oppositions from the Solar and
Venus are considerably useful however don’t negate the affliction from Mars,
nor do they offset the pure malefic qualities of Saturn.
Curiously, this doc scandal emerged simply as Mars (15 Taurus)
stationed direct whereas conjunct his natal Saturn.
By way of his re-election bid, we must always pay particular consideration to
the situation of the Solar, his tenth home ruler of standing and profession.
When that’s troubled by Saturn, Biden is extra more likely to endure
setbacks associated to his standing. One attainable date to remember in
that respect is the upcoming Solar-Saturn conjunction by transit at 3
Scorpio on February 16. With Saturn only one diploma from its precise
sq. to the natal Solar, we might see more and more stress on Biden’s
management. It’s even attainable he might announce that won’t search the
nomination for 2024, though that announcement might additionally happen later
within the yr because the Ascendant comes below the rising affliction of
Saturn. April additionally seems to be particularly susceptible on this respect as Mars
transits his equal eighth home cusp (obstacles, scandals) whereas Rahu
conjoins his sixth home Moon symbolizing opponents. Even when Biden
doesn’t pull out of the 2024 race at the moment, different Democrats might
declare their intention to contest the nomination.
General, 2023 is shaping as much as be a really troublesome yr for President
Biden. With the heavy Saturn affect, it appears very attainable that he
is not going to search a second time period.
