Astrology of the 2020 Elections: Elizabeth Warren

Part 11 of a really long series

By Kaitlyn MauraPublished 3 years ago 14 min read


In 2016, I saw that the astrological community was very divided on who was going to win the presidential elections, but I noticed that these astrologers had one thing in common: their predictions were driven more by bias than astrology. Hilary Clinton supporters were predicting her win, while Trump supporters predicted his win. Not once did I see a Democrat predict Trump's victory nor did a Republican predict Clinton's. For someone actually wanting to study astrology, it was very disappointing.

This election, I want to see predictions based not on bias or personal opinion, but on actual astrology. This election, I'm going to give my own take on 2019's election. It's not that I don't have any biases—I obviously do—but when it comes down to it, I'm not really for any politician, so my predictions are not based on who I want to win (there are definitely some candidates I hate less than others), but who I think is going to win. As I'm writing this, I'm still not sure—it might even be Trump (I hope not)! It depends on the birth charts, transits, progressions and return charts of everybody running. My source for presidential candidates is ballotpedia.org, and while I must confess there are a few names I haven't heard of before, I included them in an effort to be fair.

I was originally going to write one big long article about the election, but because the article got to be too long, WAY TOO LONG, I decided to separate it into parts. I'm going to analyze the charts of each candidate in alphabetical order by last name. If there's someone I'm missing, please feel free to let me know. Since Mike Bloomberg entered the campaign late, this article has been a departure from my original plan regarding alphabetical order.

Click the underlined links to view parts one, two, three, four, and five, where I analyze the charts of Michael Bennet, Joe Biden, Cory Booker, Steve Bullock, Pete Buttigieg, Julian Castro (who has since, along with Cory Booker, dropped out of the race), Tulsi Gabbard, Amy Klobuchar, Bernie Sanders, and Michael Bloomberg.

The Natal Chart of Elizabeth Warren

Elizabeth Warren is a former schoolteacher and academic, the current senator of Massachusetts, and 2020 presidential candidate. To learn more about her plans for presidency, click here.

According to her natal chart, Elizabeth Warren is an interesting mix between "traditional" and progressive.

Cancer and Taurus women are stereotyped as "traditional," not in a politically conservative sense, but both signs are associated with domesticity and traditional femininity (ruled by the Moon and Venus respectively). A Cancer Sun and Taurus Moon usually indicates a very nurturing and comfort-loving personality. They are also known to crave security, both material and emotional. Cancers especially are stereotyped as introverts and homebodies, women who love to stay home and cook. Of course, this stereotype is not necessarily true. Cancer is a cardinal sign, signifying someone who takes action and initiates things. Her Cancer Sun does, however, give her a certain kind of sensitivity. Elizabeth Warren is likely a very emotional person. She may have a strong sense of intuition as well. Her politics likely stem from a desire to "take care" of those less fortunate than herself, yet she is likely to be very self-protective as well. As the sign of the crab, Cancers are known for having a strong outer shell. This self-protectiveness, and fear of getting hurt, may cause her to lie at times. Meanwhile, the Moon is exalted in Taurus and likely gives her a strong emotional resolve that helps her to persevere no matter how difficult things may get. Because Taurus is an Earth sign rooted in the physical world of the five senses, she likely favors practical and tangible outcomes over pure idealism.

Elizabeth Warren's Cancer Sun is located in her natal 9th house, giving her a lot for academics and potentially travel as well. This likely gives her a strong love for learning and teaching. The 9th house is associated with law as well; so it's no wonder she got her start as a special education teacher (again, it's that Cancer quality of caring for others) before becoming a law professor. Her Sun is also conjunct Uranus by only 1 degree. This is where her "progressiveness" comes from. With the Sun conjunct Uranus, she is likely to be a bit of a rebel as well as an eccentric. She likely requires a lot of personal freedom to feel comfortable, and probably can't stand to be put in a box; she questions tradition, only following the rules that make sense to her and standing up against those that don't.

With Moon in the 8th house square Pluto in the 10th, it's possible she experienced trauma early in her life, especially at the hands of parents and caregivers. This aspect often indicates an obsessive, compulsive emotional life and a fear of abandonment and rejection. People with Moon square Pluto in their natal chart can be smothering, emotionally manipulative, as well as self-sabotaging, with tons of defense mechanisms that do more harm than good, such as leaving people before they can leave them. The stubbornness of her Taurus Moon is increased, as emotional matters may feel like a matter of life or death.

It's worth mentioning that Elizabeth Warren also has a lot of Air in her chart, increasing her love of freedom, social skills and intellectual pursuit. Jupiter in Aquarius likely gives her a very progressive outlook and philosophy on life, especially in regards to issues of home and family (4th house). Meanwhile, Mars and Mercury are conjunct in Gemini. She may get bored easily, preferring to study many different topics and subjects, and taking on many different jobs and careers throughout her life, rather than just one. She may know a lot about a lot of different things. A Gemini Mercury indicates a person who LOVES to talk, about anything and everything, to just about everyone, while the conjunction to Mars likely makes her blunt, straightforward and even a bit brisk, in communication style. She may appear aggressive, confrontational or defensive at times, when expressing her ideas, but the trine to Neptune in Libra helps temper that somewhat, giving her communication an empathetic flavor. She likely knows how to adapt what she says to fit the needs and expectations of each person she talks to.

Arguably the most important Air placement would be her Ascendant in Libra. This helps her to see all sides of a situation, and make well-thought out decisions that benefit everyone. It potentially benefits her politically as well, as she knows how to compromise with people, and negotiate with people who are on the other side of the fence politically. Elizabeth Warren is also well known for her ability to listen to the people she claims to speak for and learn from them, adapting and changing her views as need be. This can be likely be attributed to her Libra Rising, as can her love of debate and her skills as a lawyer.

It also needs to be said that her Ascendant's ruler (otherwise known as her chart ruler), Venus, is conjunct the Midheaven, giving her a very likable public persona. She comes across as charming and agreeable and she's likely to be quite popular. Venus's square to Neptune, however, may cause her to be too idealistic at times, especially in regards to her personal relationships, but being conjunct the Midheaven, people are likely to idealize her as well. Her followers and fans may put her up on a pedestal, in a way that overlooks her flaws. This aspect can also indicate someone who tries to be everything to everyone.

Elizabeth Warren's Transits

These are Elizabeth Warren's transits for February 3rd, the first day of the primaries.

With transiting Jupiter in Capricorn square her Ascendant/Descendant axis as well as her IC/MC axis, her Neptune in Libra and her Venus in Cancer, Elizabeth Warren has very high hopes for success but these hopes may be unwarranted. Overoptimism could potentially be her downfall.

However, not all hope is lost. Neptune closely applying to a trine with her Venus/Midheaven conjunction shows that idealism could potentially help her, as well.

The transiting Sun in Aquarius trine her natal Mercury-Mars conjunction in Gemini may also give her some strength and vitality, particularly in regards to communication issues.

The most worrying aspect, however, is the Saturn-Pluto conjunction on her IC, opposite her Midheaven. This creates serious problems for her career. Blockages and restrictions, as well as major competition and potential sabotage.

But if she wins, would she beat Trump?

Transiting Venus in Libra trine her natal Mercury and Mars in Gemini gives her a sense of strength and an amicability to the way she communicates. She is assertive without being alienating. She knows how to stand up for herself and her ideas while still maintaining a tone of civility against her opponent.

Meanwhile, transiting Neptune exactly sextile her Moon gives her a positive kind of sensitivity, a heightened intuition, a strong psychic sense and a powerful sense of idealism that keeps her in tact no matter what.

Pluto and Jupiter are still very closely opposite her Midheaven and Venus and square her Ascendant/Descendant axis. Jupiter might cause her to be overoptimistic about her campaign in a way that only hurts her in the end, as she fails to account for potential problems. With Pluto conjunct the IC and opposite the Midheaven, her past (IC) may be exposed (Pluto) in a way that harms her public image (Midheaven).

Elizabeth Warren's Progressions

Elizabeth Warren's current progressions show a very steady and practical approach to the ideology and belief systems behind her campaign. Her progressed Sun is very closely conjunct Saturn, the planet ruling over the material world, in the pragmatic sign of Virgo. Her progressed Sun-Saturn conjunction is located in the 9th house, which rules over travel and higher education, as well as religion and other forms of ideology (such as political ideology). Rather than being guided by stubborn ideals, she is aware of the limitations of what a president can actually do, and what is considered 'electable,' and likely has a very realistic plan for achieving her goals.

With her progressed Sun-Saturn conjunction making a sextile to Uranus in the 7th, she is not afraid to be herself. She has a healthy sense of self-esteem and isn't afraid of others thinking she's 'weird.'

The cluster of the planets in the 10th house place a huge focus on her political career. Venus conjunct Neptune placed here in Libra show a very idealistic public persona. Other people might idealize her. They might put her on a pedestal of some kind. Mercury is also placed here; making her come across as intelligent and communicative. Her mind is very focused on career matters.

However, Mercury is making a T-square to Uranus in the 7th (this square is exact at 4 degrees) and the Moon in the 1st house at the 1st degree of Capricorn. This shows that her instincts and emotions (which are career driven, and motivated by her own self-interested) are at odds with her logical mind (which are also career-motivated, but more concerned with the public interest - even if it's only because she wants to appear humanitarian, it's still an internal conflict). The square to Uranus shows controversy related to these issues. Like accepting Super PAC money after promising not to, disappointing many of her supporters.

Sagittarius Rising shows that she displays a very idealistic, optimistic, opinionated, freedom-loving, and potentially self-righteous personality to the public. The Ascendant is trine the North Node in the 4th house at 17 degrees Aries, suggesting this is part of her destiny/spiritual evolution. The sextile to Venus and Neptune in the 10th house suggests that despite (or even because of) the potential blunt or self-righteous attitude she might display, she comes across as so likable to the point of being idealized, and may herself be motivated by strong and positive high ideals of fairness, justice and truth.

The last thing I want to mention is the opposition between her progressed Mars in the 8th house and Jupiter in the 2nd. This shows an increase in aggressive, although in the sign of Cancer, where Mars is debilitated, this might possibly manifest as passive aggressiveness.

Elizabeth Warren's Return Charts

Elizabeth Warren announced her campaign on February 9th, 2019. This Solar Return from 2018 will give us some clues as to how the start of her campaign went.

With a Leo Rising, Elizabeth Warren likely found herself being the center of attention between June 2018 and 2019. Confident and strong-willed. With the North Node closely conjunct the Ascendant, this may have been part of her destiny, and there very likely may have been some spiritual development involved. Venus in the 1st house shows a pleasantness in her interaction with others. She came off as popular, attractive and amicable. Certainly, she was popular enough for her campaign to last our until Super Tuesday.

Venus is exactly opposite Mars in the 7th house, however, (which if not directly affecting her love life) likely saw some vacillating back and forth between popularity and agreeableness and aggressiveness in her interaction with those she considered to be political enemies or the other democratic candidates. With Venus conjunct the North Node and Mars conjunct the South Node, it was likely part of her destiny to move away from that aggressiveness I mentioned and move towards being cooperative. With both these planets and the Nodes making a grand cross square to Jupiter in the 4th house Scorpio and a wide square to Uranus in the 10th house Taurus, her campaign may have likely been controversial (Uranus) and both her agreeableness and her aggressiveness may have reached extreme proportions (Jupiter expands everything it aspects).

The Sun in the 11th house indicates a very social year. I associate this house both with friends and with social organizations; i.e. humanitarian aid and politics. The Sun making an exact sextile Uranus in the 10th shows an embracing of policies considered "radical" or "revolutionary" (i.e. medicare for all) while the opposition to Saturn in the 6th house shows some serious limits to her campaign, and may have been somewhat of a damper on her self-esteem.

I'm not sure what to make of Moon in the 4th house exactly, but as 4th house is the house of family and also associated with roots, the past, etc. I suppose her past may have influenced her campaign. There may have been a very nostalgic and emotional drive behind her run for presidency. Memories of her family may have been the motivator behind it, or her current family members may have pushed her on. The Moon square Pluto shows family conflicts and power struggles.

Mercury opposite Pluto shows power struggles in her communication with others. Mercury in the 12th shows that this may have been subconscious; she may not have been aware of the passive aggressiveness and ill intent behind some of her communication.

The grand water trine between Mercury, Jupiter, and Neptune, is very positive and shows a campaign based on genuine empathy and compassion for other people.

With the Sun in the 9th making an exact trine to the Moon in the 5th, Elizabeth Warren is very comfortable with herself. This is a very good aspect to have, showing strong self-esteem and an optimistic attitude about life. The Sun in the 9th indicates a year of travel and learning, studying. The 9th house is also about belief systems such as political ideology, while the Moon in the 5th is an indicator of fun and creativity. With both planets making a sextile to Uranus in the 7th, she feels comfortable enough with herself to stand out from the crowd. She is not afraid to be different or "controversial."

With a Libra Ascendant, life may feel a bit like a balancing act this year, and the oppositions echo that sentiment.

The close opposition between Venus in the 9th and Jupiter in the 3rd points to a balancing act between her desire to stand up for what she believes in at all costs (and keeping her supporters happy by doing so) and making the logical (and ethical) choice to drop out and back the candidate with the most support. With both these planets making a t-square to Neptune in the 6th, there is a very romantic and idealistic attitude about her campaign which may wind up being her downfall.

Mars and Mercury conjunct the North Node in the 10th house show a very aggressively communicative public persona, but the opposition from the Saturn and Pluto conjunction in the 4th house places limits on this; power struggles and competition; people trying to sabotage her and send her back home.


The multiple squares, oppositions, and aspects to Uranus, show is that rather than uniting the Democratic Party, her constant vacillating back and forth between high ideals that appeal to progressives and “practical” decisions that appeal to moderates only serves to alienate and anger both sides. While she does have a strong band of die hard supporters who idealize her to the point of overlooking any flaw, it is not enough for her to win. The Saturn-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn is opposite her Midheaven, creating major problems for her career.
