When Is Joe Biden’s Birthday?

Joe Biden’s birthday is November 20.

Joe Biden’s Sun Sign Is In Powerful Scorpio

•The Sun represents the essence of your personality, your main character energy•

President Joe Biden’s astrological sign is Scorpio. He was born on November 20, 1942 in Scranton, Pennsylvania.

Of all the zodiac signs, Scorpio might just be the most misunderstood. Sure, they can be seemingly mysterious and deeply private, preferring to hold their cards close to their chest; however, there’s more to Scorpio than meets the superficial eye. Scorpio is a water sign, meaning that there’s an inherent sensitivity and vulnerability to the scorpion (despite the shield of their Ray-Ban Aviators). 

Scorpio rules death, transformation and rebirth. It is the ultimate story of the Phoenix rising from the ashes. As a Scorpio Sun, President Biden is familiar with the darker events of life, especially with its placement in the twelfth house of “loss” and “troubles.”

With a Scorpio Sun in the spiritual twelfth house, Biden is familiar with tragedy; mortality becomes the ultimate spiritual teacher/guru. In turn, Biden helps lead the collective in their processing of grief given his own challenge navigating some very public losses involving his first wife and two of his children.

Joe Biden’s Natal Chart Has An Intense Scorpio Stellium

•A stellium is when three or more planets are in the same zodiac sign or house in a birth chart•

Not only is Joe Biden a Scorpio Sun, he also has Venus, Mars, and Mercury in the regenerative water sign, making him very Scorpionic in nature.

Mars is the traditional ruler of Scorpio, a particularly empowered placement for President Biden. Mars describes our motivations and ambitions, it shows us where our drive is. With a Mars in Scorpio, Biden has a fixed disposition. He is incredibly determined and ambitious. It makes sense that he’s been in the political game for most of his life, having been sworn in as one of the youngest U.S. Senators at 29, to the oldest serving President in U.S. history.

Venus can describe one’s values and style, while Mercury is associated with communication and intellect. Having both these planets in Scorpio, it’s no surprise Biden has historically been known to be a master negotiator with an uncanny ability to size up the opposition. A key tenant of President Biden’s platform when running for his first term was his ability to negotiate across the aisle. Scorpios are most comfortable out of the spotlight and behind closed doors, after all. 

Joe Biden’s Moon Is In Safe and Stable Taurus

•Your moon sign governs the “inner you” and influences your emotions•

Balancing the Scorpionic intensity in President Biden’s birth chart is his Taurus moon, a grounding and peaceful placement that helps him methodically move out of some deep emotional valleys. 

The moon happens to feel right at home in Taurus, giving Biden a particularly strong emotional foundation that helps make others around him feel safe and stable. Taurus moons can be thought of as steady Eddies of the zodiac, incredibly dependable and loyal, which happens to be a trait commonly shared with the rest of his Scorpio placements as well. 

However, all this stability and loyalty may make for some stubbornness, which can have President Biden getting his hooves stuck in a rut or a situation from time to time, especially as his Taurus Moon is located in the fifth house of self-expression.

On a lighter note, comfort food takes on a whole new dimension with a Taurus Moon. It’s no secret that Biden likes to indulge in an ice cream cone, giving the President a joyful disposition during his time in office (no comment on the timing and appropriateness of those indulgent moments, however).

Joe Biden’s Rising Sign Is Gregarious Sagittarius

•Your rising sign, or ascendant, is the first impression you make. Like a filter, it “tints” your Sun sign•

Joe Biden is a Sagittarius Rising. Sagittarius is symbolized by the Archer, an arrow that points towards the endless sky, promising adventure, optimism and a thirst for experience. Sagittarius risings are known for their warm and generous spirit. Never long without a smile on their face, Sagittarius risings can inspire the most pessimistic.

While details may not be a Sagittarius rising fortĂ©, you can always count on them for a joke to diffuse some tension as part of the process! Humor is a trusted weapon of Biden, especially his brand of self-deprecation amidst some intense public scrutiny about his age. Is laughter the best defense? Time will certainly tell. 

Of course, as a Sagittarius rising, Biden may sometimes take some comedic jumps that leap a little too far. Sagittarius risings are known for occasionally putting their foot in their mouth with a sweeping generalization (or two).

Joe Biden’s Chart Ruler Is Jupiter, In A “Taboo” Placement

•Jupiter in your birth chart reveals where you’re adventurous and willing to take risks•

As a Sagittarius Rising, Joe Biden’s chart ruler happens to be his Jupiter in Cancer.

Jupiter is the planet of confidence, faith and guidance, and Cancer is the zodiac sign traditionally linked to womanhood and family; the idea of creating nurturing and safe spaces rings rather loudly in his chart. His Jupiter in Cancer happens to be located in the eighth house of empowerment, a “dark” house indicative of “taboo” subject matter meant to hide behind closed doors.

One of the major driving forces of Biden’s career has been his writing and championing of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) as a U.S. Senator, a landmark legislation that first passed in 1994. The Act remains a key cornerstone of Biden’s public service career and has evolved over time to combat campus sexual assault as well as sexual reforms in the military around gender-based violence. 

Love Astrology of Joe Biden: “Ride or Die” Relationships

•Venus and Mars are the love planets in astrology. In your birth chart, Venus represents seduction and romance while Mars represents lust, motivation and erotic instincts.

Because Biden has his Mars and Venus both in Scorpio, it gives him a very “ride-or-die” disposition to his relationships. Mars and Venus coming together promise no shortage of drama and excitement (they are the planets of war and love after all!). 

And yet, in the sign of Scorpio, that drama serves a well-intended purpose, offering Biden countless opportunities to dive deeper into their emotional bonds and connection with chosen partners. President Biden credits First Lady Jill Biden with giving him back his life after the death of his first wife, introducing a new vision of family that helped him feel whole again. With Mars and Venus in Scorpio, relationships are more than just partnerships to Biden, they ultimately serve as healing vessels that help the other regenerate.

Scorpio is, of course, tenacious, determined to pursue a soul connection at all costs (how romantic!). Despite being together for over four decades, Biden had to actually propose to Jill FIVE times before she finally said yes (because she was hesitant about having a public life). In true Scorpionic fashion, their wedding was an intimate affair, exchanging vows in the UN chapel.

Joe Biden’s South Node Is In Underdog Aquarius

•Astrologers use the nodes of the moon (found opposite each other in your birth chart) to determine where your destiny lies (North node) and what you were in past lifetimes (South node).

Biden has his South Node (past-life karma) in Aquarius and his North Node (destiny) in Leo. With a South Node in Aquarius, Biden is innately predisposed to the underdog mentality and could find himself ostracized by the party/community he surrounds himself with. 

Biden’s North Node in Leo ultimately serves as the “cure” to his karma. Located in the ninth house of foreign affairs and personal beliefs, Biden is here to roar loudly and stand in his convictions, taking in various pieces of the puzzle as he forms his own brand of truth or policy (the ninth house is also associated with the law).

The ninth house is traditionally associated with Sagittarius energy, themes of truth, upbringing and worldview, doubling down on his Sagittarius Rising self. Biden is here to ultimately be a wise truth-teller, passionate about his convictions. Playing across the aisle, while comfortable to his Aquarian community-oriented ways and fear of being ostracized, might ultimately have him stuck in a low vibration if he’s not sure where he stands.
