After the fierce electoral battle and many unpleasant incidents post elections, Joe Biden has taken charge of the new US administration on the 20th of January last month. Interestingly the new Biden government has 20 Indian-Americans appointed or nominated to be part of the administration with 17 of them at key positions. This was bit surprising also as Indian prime minister Mr. Modi had openly supported Donald Trump by conducting huge rallies at Huston and Ahmadabad to organize Indian-American voters to vote for the Republican party. Joe Biden counter this move by making Kamal Harris her running mate for vice president. I had did an analysis of the horoscopes of Joe Biden, Kamala Harris and Donal Trump forecasting well in advance the humiliation of Trump after a election defeat. Now the oath taking horoscope of Joe Biden suggest that new US president may face some serious health issues or accidents preventing him to complete his tenure or incapacitating him sometimes in the year 2024.
Donald Trump’s horoscope have been discussed in detail earlier in November 2019 on this blog forecasting his humiliating defeat and he seems to be now going towards retirement only. You may see the above link for the analysis on Donald Trump’s chart.

The Socprio lagna horoscope of Joe Biden has a very strong Vargottam 5th lord Jupiter in the 9th house of luck. His 10th lord Sun is in the lagna in conjunction with 7th lord Venus is also very strong. They both get the aspects of Jupiter and Saturn showing his very long career into politics. Jupiter aspect the 10th house from his Moon and it also aspect the 10th lord from Janma lagna, which is Sun, showing untainted image of Mr. Biden. Moon is in the sign of Mars is getting the aspect of Mars is a Raja Yoga.
In the Scorpio lagna horoscope of Joe Biden Jupiter-Rahu period in Vimshottari is running from April 2020 September 2022. Jupiter is Vargottama and is strongly placed in the 9th house of luck. But Jupiter is retrograde and get the aspect of Saturn which is a functional malefic for Scorpio lagna. In Trimshamsha chart, which is not given here, Jupiter is in enemy sign Taurus and is again under aspect of Saturn. But the anter dasha lord Rahu is excellent in both Rashi and Navamsha which gave him the top position in his country. In Jupiter-Rahu-Saturn current from January 2021 to May 2021 Joe Biden is facing a tough challenge to pacify the political hostility within the country after the capitol hill violence, and also in matter of foreign relations with China there are immense challenges as we can see this astrologically in his sub period of Saturn which is in the 7th house under the aspect of 6th lord Mars.
Noticeable point here is that Saturn is retrograde and is placed in the 7th house which is a ‘Maraka’ house. Saturn maha dasha will start in September 2022 which will give him some illness in the following year or some accident which may make him incapacitated to discharge his constitutional duties as President in the last year of his term. As per the 25th Amendment to the US Constitution if the President of the USA is incapacitated to discharge his duties or dies then powers and duties of the President are transfer to the Vice President. So there is an astrological possibility that in end of 2023 or in 2024 for some period Kamala Harris may assume the responsibilities of US President temporarily. This we can see in his oath taking chart also which is given below.
Oath Taking Horoscope of Joe Bide
20 January 2021, 11:48 am at District of Colombia, Washington DC.
Longitude: 77 W 02’ and Latitude: 38 N 53’
As per the US constitution the president elects take oath on the 20th of January around 12 noon. Joe Biden has chosen time for his Swearing-in as 11:48 am which appears to be taken out under some astrological considerations. Had he taken oath at 12:00 noon then he would have got Aries lagna rising with Virgo Navamsha. But by taking 11:48 am he has got the 5th house rising in the Navamsha which is a fixed sign Leo. But will this little amendment in oath taking time help him to complete his tenure ? The Muhurta chart can not overpower the birth chart which hold the promise for future events to take place as per the running dasha and anter dashas. But yes a good Muhurta can be a little saving grace at times.
Tithi: Shukla Ashtami, Vaar- Wednesday, Nakshtra: Ashwani, Yoga: Sadhya , Karna: Vishti
At the time of Joe Biden Swearing-in all the planets, except nodes (Rahu and Ketu), are in 3 Rashi’s only which in Nabhas Yoga’s known as the ‘Shoola Yoga’. This planetary position indicate hostility from the enemies and lots of obstructions. The recently concluded US Presidential fight between Joe Biden and Donald Trump was full of vehemence and ugliness.
The following are the important feature of this oath taking chart of Joe Biden.
1. Moon is in Mesha (Aries) sign in Ashwani Nakshtra which is consider good for swearing-in. Aries being a movable sign will make Joe Biden ‘ the man of action’. He has already started overturning many important policy decisions of previous Trump administration.
2. The malefic planets Rahu and Ketu at the 2/8 axis of Joe Biden’s oath taking chart indicate financial crisis for the government which will become more deep due to ongoing corona virus pandemic.
3. In oath taking chart the 7th lord Venus is in the 9th house. Joe Biden has said to overturn many foreign policy decisions of Trump government like leaving Paris Climate Accord and aborting Iran Nuclear Deal.
4. The 10th house of the oath taking chart of Biden government has very strong planets in both Rashi and Navamsha. He has started earning praises after overthrowing Trump’s ‘travel ban’ policy which put restrictions on travellers from 13 countries, most of them being Muslim majority African nations. He is also taking major policy decisions to give relief to the illegal immigrants in the USA. He has also recently lifted the restrictions on H1B Visa which were imposed by his predecessor during COVID-19 pandemic.
5. Moon and Mars in the lagna of oath taking chart with make him very dynamic but self-centred in style of work. However the 5th lord Sun is in the 10th house along with 9th lord Jupiter is a very good yoga which gives a king (ruler) very good advisors.
6. Malefic in the langa, 2nd and 8th house are not good for the ruler’s health in oath taking chart. Adding to the miseries Mars and Saturn both aspect the 7th house of death or illness. In Navamsha lagna lord Sun goes into the 8th house along with 6th (accident) and 7th (Maraka house) lord Saturn. This is not a good yoga for the health and longevity of the ruler.

In the national horoscope of USA the Rahu-Jupiter period from 28 June 2021 to 21 November 2023 shows the recovery of economy and also much needed relief from corona virus pandemic. Jupiter is very strong 5th lord in the national horoscope of USA strongly placed in the 11th house from lagna and 5th from the Moon. The sub period of Jupiter will put US economy and foreign policy back on the track. But later the Rahu-Saturn period after November 2023 again shows some setback for the country in form of a tragic death or illness of its top leadership. Saturn as the 7th lord is in the 2nd house a ‘Maraka’ house. Moreover the country is in the grip of a ‘Sadhe-Sati’ and transiting Saturn would be over her Janma Nakshatra soon in year 2022.

In the Gemini lagna horoscope of Kamala Harris Rahu is very strong in the Janma lagna and Navamsha lagna. In Rahu-Mercury dasha in Vimshottari from July 2020 to January 2023 her political career will shine and she will become immensely popular as the Vice President of USA. I had earlier discuss her horoscope in detail in the article “Kamala Harris: the rising star of American Politics”
In her Gemini lagna chart the mutual aspect between 5th lord Venus and 9th lord Saturn in the birth chart is a very good Raja Yoga. Moon is in Aries in exchange with its sign lord Mars which is in Cancer is another good Raja Yoga as per the Chandra Yoga Adhyay of Brihat Parashra Hora Shatra. The aspect of Mars on the 5th house and 9th house is a good yoga for practice in law. The aspect of Jupiter on the 10th house from her natal Moon is good yoga for her popularity. She is under Rahu maha dasha which is strongly placed in the Janma lagna , Navamsha lagna and Dashamsha lagna. The depositor of Rahu is also well placed in there charts. She is in Rahu-Mercury-Venus dasha period from January 2021 to June 2021 which is very positive for her as Venus as the 5th lord is in mutual aspect with 9th lord Saturn. In Navamsha both Venus and Saturn are again in a good Raja Yoga. In year 2024 during her Rahu-Ketu or Rahu-Venus period she may even become the president of USA in some exceptional emergency situations. Her horoscope is so strong that she will be remember as one of the most popular women politician in the USA.
