An Astrological Assessment of Bernie Sanders - Can He Become Our Next President?

Despite the corporate media's ignoring the Sanders campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination, Bernie Sanders has struck a nerve in the body politic, and Hillary Clinton has a real fight on her hands.

Bernie is surging

The latest polls show Bernie Sanders cutting into Hillary Clinton's once seemingly insurmountable lead, and that the corporate media will not be able to ignore his campaign for much longer.

Iowa and New Hampshire, the two early voting primary states


On the Republican side, their racist, xenophobic base has turned to establishment outsiders Donald Trump and Ted Cruz and given them the lead in Iowa and New Hampshire.

On the Democratic side, progressives, fed up with DINOS (Democrats in name only), look to Bernie Sanders as a breath of fresh air. He is neck and neck with Hillary Clinton in Iowa and holds a substantial lead in New Hampshire.

With Uranus squaring Pluto these days, the nomination races in both parties reflect a powerful (Pluto) collective yearning for radical change (Uranus).

The horoscope of Bernie Sanders

The ruling planet of an individual's horoscope is the planet which rules the ascendant or rising sign. Since Bernie Sanders' ascendant is Scorpio, his ruling planet is Pluto, situated in his ninth house in Leo. The ninth house reveals one's belief system, one's world view, and this placement shows that he holds his beliefs firmly (Leo) and passionately (Pluto). What's more, Pluto in his birth chart is the first planet that rises before the Sun; it is the "planet of oriental appearance." In any individual's horoscope, the planet of oriental appearance is highly emphasized. It could be said the it "brings the special message of the person into full view." Bernie's intensity (Pluto) in terms of communicating his beliefs (9th house) is nothing short of immense. His ethics and his integrity (9th house) are also beyond reproach.

People who know Bernie say that he is all business when he relates to you. He has no time for small talk, for frivolous conversation. He engages you (7th house) seriously (Saturn) about the issues that concern him. It's all he ever talks about. This is emphasized by the fact that Saturn is closely conjunct the seventh house cusp. Moreover, Saturn's conjunction with Uranus is the mark of an individual who constantly challenges the status quo, or business as usual.

The Moon-Mars conjunction is the mark of a fighter, and in Aries it signifies one who will fight for new (Aries) ideas and agendas. Bernie could be accurately described as a political pioneer (Aries).

The Sun in his tenth house conjunct the north node shows he was destined to lead a life in the public eye and rise to great prominence in his field. Moreover, eight of the ten planets residing above the horizon also calls him to a very public life. His Sun in Virgo marks him as a critic (Virgo) of the system or established order (tenth house). Neptune's placement in the tenth house marks him as a man who must bring his ideals (Neptune) into his career (tenth house) and always be true to those ideals.

Jupiter's placement in Gemini, sextile (60 degree aspect) to the Moon-Mars conjunction and trine (120 degree aspect) to Venus marks his ability to easily (Venus-Jupiter) communicate (Jupiter in Gemini) his ideas to the public (Venus in house eleven), and to have his ideas generally well received. In other words, he has a talent (Jupiter) for gaining the collective ear of the people.

Can he be elected president?

In the bi-wheel chart above, Bernie's horoscope is in the inner wheel, and the outer wheel shows the transits at the start of election day, when the polls open at midnight in Dixville Notch, New Hampshire.

The transits are remarkable, and they suggest that if Bernie is nominated he will win in a landslide. Virgo is rising in the election day horoscope, putting Bernie's Sun in that chart's first house. The Moon forms a trine to Bernie's eleventh house Venus and a trine to his Jupiter. Moreover, it makes a sextile to the Moon-Mars conjunction. All of these aspects are highly fortunate, showing good fortune (Jupiter), popularity (Venus) and acceptance (Moon)

Pluto forms an exact trine to his Sun that day, suggesting an expansion of his power, and Saturn forms an exact square to his Sun that day as well, revealing a turning point in his destiny and the taking on of a burdensome responsibility, which assuming the presidency would most assuredly be.

My take on all of this is that Bernie Sanders, in one of the greatest upsets in American political history, will be elected the next president of the United States.

Would it be hlpful to do a bi-chart for Mr Sanders and the USA? There definitely is something worth thinking about if he were to win: could this be the making of a new United States of America?

If Bernie wins the Republicans will pull out all the stops to obstruct everything he tries to do, just as they did with Obama. But there is a lot he can accomplish with the bully pulpit and by executive order.

No way in HE double hockey stick will Bernie Sanders ever be elected to the oval office. The gems themselves won't let them happen. If somehow H Clinton gets what she deserves which is jail time, then Obama will get Biden to replace her as the nomination for the dems. No way will Bernie Sanders ever step foot in the oval office as anything other than a guest. Beside Republicans will win the election this year anyway, so that because a mute point.

Do you have a similar chart for HRC and a link to it? It would be fascinating to see charts for both candidates at the Democratic convention in July also and for both against Trump;s chart in November......thanks!

Each of the zodiac signs possesses a distinct set of personality traits that are said to describe somebody under that sign.

Also, as you have said here, even our belief system is being depicted in our Astrology charts too.

It’s remarkable to me though that you can so strongly predict an outcome such as this, purely based on the reading of these charts.

To me, the numorosity of the enigmity (sorry Steve, I like to make up my own words, LOL) of the overall personality allows for it to be described in various ways, of which astrology is one such method. It can predict patterns for how that personality will work, but even so, these do not necessarily have to be followed, I feel.

Your personality is already painted onto your portrait for the coming incarnation, and it’s linked into how you will use your particular gift (or oppositely put, relate to your karma) this lifetime, and it matches this as best for you as it can. In this way too, your astrology can also point towards your particular spiritual gifts, whatever they are for you this life time too. And to read for you how your karma will play out for you too.

But to prophesise, predict an outcome such as this, to me that’s a big ask, for a system that is describing, or trying to describe, something much larger that itself, and which (this underlying something larger, i.e. perhaps this is God, or our soul) carries much more too under the surface of itself, on other planes of existence too, that which I think Astrology could fully describe fully.

"than which I think Astrology could fully describe fully."

This was a typo I think.

I meant of course that the infinite scope of possibilities for our personality to act out from makes the predicting of how this will play out complexly/mysteriously uncertain because of this.

It has always annoyed me with this site that we cannot easily correct typos like this in our comments to another post too.

Fellow Wikinut writer and astrolger par excellence Christopher Miller made a comment to me on Facebook that he would predict, not necessarily that Sanders wilol win, but that he will at the very least shake up the political process in a way that it will never be the same. His may turn out to be the more accurate prediction. I can only tell you that I have predicted every presidential election correctly since I began doing it in 1980, which is not to say I couldn't be incorrect this time.

That's a great track record Steve.

Bernie is old at 74, but he does carry the famous Sander's name. The colonel also did great things in his old age. His involved us licking our fingers though....some of us old timers still do that of course....

Let's hope you are right again!!!

I hope the Donald Trump chart nowhere near as optimistic. It was a spirited but reasonable debate tonight, bringing light as well as heat.

Steve: Fantastic analysis on Bernie Sanders. I love Bernie and agree with you that he can win the Presidency, especially since he has a powerful PLUTO trine Sun transit this year! But he does have a SATURN square Sun. How do you interpret that?Question: Do you think his astrology is strong enough to win the Democratic nomination in July? If so, why? Many thanks, Larry

Hi Larry, thanks for commenting. I interpret the Saturn square Sun transit to mean that he takes on a burdensome responsibility at that time, and that to me is another indication of his winning.

I failed to mention it in this article, but the fact that Bernie's Pluto conjuncts America's north node suggests that, win or lose, Bernie is a transformative figure in American history, pointing the country in a radical new path. Bernie's north node is exactly conjunct America's Neptune, suggesting that he raises a clarion call to the better angels of our nature, to the ideals America was founded upon.

I made a comment on her post about Bernie Sanders, couching it in the same way as I did above, and she responding saying that she wanted to know more, so I copied the link to your page (which caused a momentary hickup on Facebook) and then posted a copy of the comparison chart on my own Chris Miller page publicly. So, yes, Marianne Williamson can be said to read us...

Hi Steve, Also note, 2016 is a 8 personal year for Bernie in numerology (expansion of power), whereas for Hillary it a 9 (endings)

Now that's very interesting! It is so often the case that numerological and astrological indications coincide in a synchronous manner. Thanks for that comment Simon.

Hi,

I read the prediction you made in regards to Bernie Sanders getting the nomination and becoming the next president. I admit, as a STRONG Hillary Clinton supporter, your prediction is somewhat bitter sweet; I'm at least glad 2016 looks like another Democratic year. My mother is also an astrologer but she doesn't do political astrology because she finds that it's much too confusing and she also finds that peoples' personal bias tends to get in the way. That being said, since you see Bernie Sanders as the winner, do you see any possibility of Hillary Clinton being given a position in Bernie's cabinet? I'm asking because I'm a huge Hillary Clinton supporter and if she doesn't get the nomination, I would at least like to think she'll be part of the administration in some way. I'm still voting for Hillary Clinton in Florida' primary (which will be on March 15th). I appreciate any thoughts or analysis your can provide me. Thanks.

Chris, I frankly do not think Bernie would have Hillary in his cabinet. She hob nobs with Henry Kissinger and takes advice from him - Bernie thinks Kissinger is a war criminal.

Hi Steve, I think the SAturn square Sun transit will be felt by Bernie very soon - as I believe the orb for squares is quite wide. I interpret it to mean blockages and frustration (with the obvious massive systemic resistance he will face) Can he overcome it? I hope so.

Saturn squares reveal a tough row to hoe, but they also portend success as often as not. Astrologer Grant Lewi always maintained that Saturn squares to one's Sun by transit are very often a signal of success.

Hi Steve, I love your analysis of Bernie. I love him and pray that he can win the nomination from Hillary. It seems like his Saturn/sq/Sun is more of a block at this time than indicative of "taking on huge responsibility. Despite Hillary's huge delegate lead. Since the Dems have "proportional" splits...Can Bernie upset her enough to win the nomination? What do you think? And please tell me what is the astrology behind your answer.

I see him having a strong Uranus opp Venus from Apr 24-Jun 3 (exact: May 13). Could this be when Bernie surprises?

I do hope your right! As a democratic feminist mother with two masters degrees, I cannot vote for Hillary who I think is indeed a criminal. I am so shocked at how gullible and uninformed many people are in this country. Great prediction if it were to come through! Go Bernie!
