What is Joe Biden’s zodiac sign? What about Kamala Harris’? And more importantly, what do the stars say – do their signs get along? Today, 20 November, is US president-elect Joe Biden’s birthday. He turns 78, making him the oldest ever President of the United States.

Joe Biden zodiac sign revealed

Joseph Robinette Biden Jr., aka Joe Biden, turns 78 today, 20 November. This means that, according to popular wisdom, Biden’s star sign is Scorpio. 

However, since NASA dropped a bombshell 13th star sign into the mix, this complicates things. Or does it?

Yes, in case you have been living under a large rock for about the last four years it is now well understood that there are, in fact, 13 constellations. 

Lucky number 13 goes by the name of Ophiuchus, and straddles the celestial equator. Most representations depict Ophiuchus as a man grasping a snake.

According to the new regime, Ophiuchus cuts into Scorpio’s time, and moves the remaining constellations by a week or two, one way or the other.

How does this affect Joe Biden’s horoscope?

Well, it does and it doesn’t. Since astrology and astronomy are very different fields, and the Babylonians actually knew about Ophiuchus all along, the traditional zodiac signs basically remain the same. 

They have been “wrong” – as in, astronomically inaccurate – for just about as long as they have existed, while the “right” astronomical periods have always incorporated Ophiuchus. 

So, if you’re still with me, Joe Biden’s zodiac sign is still Scorpio.

But what does this mean for the future of the United States?

Do Joe Biden’s and Kamala Harris’ zodiac signs get along?

Fortune or fate: Scorpio’s lucky colour is electric blue. Looking good so far – the Democratic Party flies a blue flag.

But that’s not all. Scorpio’s lucky letter, according to today’s horoscope in Hindustan Times, is A. How many A’s are there in Kamala Harris? Lots! Coincidence? Maybe.

Other takes on the issue are more attuned to astrological jargon:

All this good fortune begs the question of whether or not Biden and Harris’s professional relationship is in the stars’ favour. Let’s dig a little deeper.

What is Kamala’s zodiac sign?

Kamala Harris’s birthday is on 20 October, making her a Libra. Libra’s lucky colour is, apparently, royal blue – which again seems too good to be true. 

The combination of Libra and Scorpio is, according to the ultimate source of astrology information, an “intense pairing in every way.”

Astrology-zodiac-signs.com gives the pair a 45% personal compatibility rating. This may not seem very high, but it gets worse. Citing as evidence the fact that “if Scorpio cannot trust someone, it is Libra”, Biden and Harris’ zodiac signs score just 1% on trust compatibility.

What does this mean for the upcoming presidency?

According to fashion magazine Elle, Biden needs to be careful – but perhaps not for the aforementioned reasons:

Watch your words, Scorpio! You could regret an incendiary rant under today’s cautionary skies, as the emotional moon in your foundational fourth house squares outspoken Mercury in your sign. Though you may be tempted to blurt out the first thing that comes to mind, think about the effect your words could have on the other party. Will your impassioned tirade escalate this situation? If the answer is “yes,” then bite your tongue. If you’re afraid that you’ll be unable to keep your cool around a triggering person, then steer clear. Take up this discussion tomorrow when you’re in a more level-headed mood.

Whether you believe in the horoscope or simply peruse it from time to time for fun, make of this what you will – just don’t take it as a political prediction. Neither we, or the stars, can make those accurately.
