Before Senator Kamala Harris was campaigning to be the Democratic nominee in the 2020 U.S. presidential election, she was just a little baby who was born on October 20, 1964 at 9:28 p.m. in Oakland, California. In astrology, as you already know because you’re probably getting a rude push notification rn from Co-Star, it’s believed that the alignment of the planets at your exact time of birth shape your unique personality, so according to her birth information.
A birth chart—aka a map of the sky at the time and place of your official earth debut—can tell us tons about your beliefs, motivations, ambitions, loves, fears, you name it. So here’s what the planets have to say about the senator from California.
Your Sun sign symbolizes your external self, aka how you radiate your personality to the rest of the world. As a Libra Sun, Kamala is committed to justice, fairness, and equality. This zodiac sign is literally represented by the same scales you see in a courtroom, so it’s no surprise that Kamala pursued a career as a lawyer. And although Senator Harris prides herself on her ability to be balanced and objective and understand the perspectives of others, another critical piece of her astrological puzzle explains her relentless self-determination.
But First, Kamala’s Most Libra Sun Quote:
On the most Libra thing about her: “I am passionate, and really to the point of that it will bring me to a fight for fairness. It is one of the things that moves me the most, when things are unfair.”
Your Moon sign shapes your emotional world and subconscious. Kamala was born on the exact day of the Full Moon in Aries. Likewise, her Libra Sun stands in direct opposition to her fierce Aries Moon, revealing her fiery emotional inner-world. Aries is known to be impulsive, ambitious, and extremely competitive, so Kamala isn’t afraid to step into the ring and fight against all odds. In fact, she’s all about the challenge. Those born under a Full Moon are often compelled to bring opposites together, so based on these placements, Kamala’s life mission is to create unity by any means necessary.
Kamala’s Most Aries Moon Quote:
On her staying power in the presidential race despite financial obstacles and low polling numbers: “I know what is possible. I know, having been elected the first woman District Attorney of San Francisco and the first woman of color to be District Attorney of any county in a state of 40 million people. I know, having been elected Attorney General of California, running the second largest department of justice as the first woman and the first person of color of any gender. I know, having been elected to the United States Senate as only the second black woman in the history of the United States Senate, to be elected to that body, considered the most deliberative body in the world. I know that there will always be odds against it, but I never give up.”
At Kamala’s exact moment of birth, the sign of Gemini was emerging over the eastern horizon. In astrology, that placement is identified as her Rising sign (or Ascendant), which explains how you perceive the world. Gemini is a curious, quick-witted, and extremely expressive sign, so communication is extremely important to Kamala. Gemini is governed by the planet Mercury, so this makes her super susceptible to Mercury Retrograde blunders—she should proofread all her emails (and speeches!) when this planet goes backward.
Interestingly, President Donald Trump (who was also born during a Full Moon) has been activating her birth chart in a powerful way since the day she was born: Donald’s Sun at 22º Gemini is making an extremely close connection with her Rising sign (at 24º Gemini). This makes her candidacy feel karmic: She feels that her entire journey has led her to the opportunity to come face-to-face with (and, in her intent, beat) him.
Kamala’s Most Gemini Rising Quote:
On why she’s proposed less student loan forgiveness than other candidates: “I don’t believe Donald Trump’s kids should get loan forgiveness. I mean, that’s it. In a nutshell, that’s it. And by that, I mean that there should not be loan forgiveness for people who can afford to pay it.”
And now, an astrological prediction for Kamala:
On February 5, 2020, Jupiter (the planet of expansion), Saturn (the taskmaster), and Pluto (the transformer) will all be occupying her elusive Eighth House—the area of the chart that contains major secrets. During this time, Kamala’s past may come back to haunt her in a major way…and this date just so happens to coincide with the Iowa caucuses (I mean, there are no coincidences).
