Senator Kamala Harris of California trails Veep Biden, perennial candidate Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts. Instead of being up at the top, as would be expected from someone who has been in the forefront of former President Obama’s wishlist, she is often tied with South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg in the polls.
Her politics are inline with President Barack Obama. She supports single-payer health-care, federal descheduling of marijuana , municipal protection for undocumented immigrants (sanctuary cities), the DREAM Act, opposition to gun laws and support of transgender rights and net neutrality. Recently in lieu of the Black Lives Matter and antiFa riots on the West Coast, she has come out supporting both organizations and their demand for fiscal reparations
As this is the largest Democratic presidential field in modern history, the rule of thumb is he strongest fundraiser wins, but right now no one is betting cash on the a candidate. Instead they are waiting for the big fight aka the Democratic debates,before taking sides.
In the meantime….Senator Harris was born on October 20 1964 in Oakland, California to two immigrant parents. Her mother is from Tamil India (and a doctor of medicine) while her father hails from Kingston, Jamaica. They divorced when she was seven years old and her mother moved Kamala and her sister Maya, also an attorney, to Montreal Canada. She returned to the United States for college. [fmn] Suprisingly, she does not mention this in her autobiography which I read but glosses over her Canadian years. [/fmn]
She attended Howard University, Washington D.C. (formerly the all-Negro school the Howard Normal and Theological School for the Education of Teachers and Preachers, but now a secular institution). After that, she attended University of California, Hastings College of the Law in San Francisco.
In the 1990s, she worked in the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office and the City Attorney of San Francisco’s office. There she met Willie Brown, speaker of California’s State Assembly also appointed Harris to the state’s Unemployment Insurance Appeals Board, a lucrative position worth a further $97,088 a year, according to the Los Angeles Times in 1994. From there Brown went to the mayorship from 1996 through 2004 was succeeded by Gavin Newsom.
In 2004, she was elected District Attorney of San Francisco, thanks again to Brown, before making the big jump in 2016 to replace Sen. Barbara Boxer as California’s junior senator.
When Harris announced her failed presidential bid in January 2019 he penned a column for the San Francisco Chronicle entitled: “Sure, I dated Kamala Harris, So what?”
I’ve been peppered with calls from the national media about my ‘relationship’ with Kamala Harris, particularly since it became obvious that she was going to run for president. Most of them, I have not returned. …Yes, we dated. It was more than 20 years ago. And yes, I may have influenced her career by appointing her to two state commissions when I was Assembly speaker.
He continued: “And I certainly helped with her first race for district attorney in San Francisco. I have also helped the careers of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Gov. Gavin Newsom, Sen. Dianne Feinstein and a host of other politicians… The difference is that Harris is the only one who, after I helped her, sent word that I would be indicted if I ‘so much as jaywalked’ while she was D.A. That’s politics for ya,” he added.Former State Assembly Speaker and Frisco Mayor, Willie Brown in the Chronicle.
She married fellow California attorney Douglas Emhoff, also age 55 born a week before her on the opposite side of the country in Brooklyn, New York, after meeting him on a blind date. They were married by her sister Maya West, who is also her campaign chair. They have no children. Last year the couple made 1.8 million dollars.
Senator Harris is another wheelbarrow with Saturn and Moon handle. So far everyone we have done has had the same setup. Saturn alone in the western hemisphere and Sun in the east, it seems we will have to keep looking for others to see why.
The wheelbarrow lacks a grand trine to unify it, so the luminary supports their dreams, hers on the twelfth house cusp of government, while Saturn, in the ninth house of legislature, anchors them to someone (typically a much older person) they identify with that makes those dream real. As Kamala and her father have been long estranged, that would seem to be Willie Brown himself, and that makes sense as Willie, President Obama and Kamala Harris have a similar political outlook.
Her chart is also marked by a fixed grand cross — see Saturn at 28.26 Aquarius opposite Mars in the 3rd house at Leo 21.16. This aspect creates a problem with male authority, highlighted when her father, Donald, when he came out lambasting her for fabricating their past in Jamaica as slaves when they were actually plantation managers over slaves.
The next wing of the grand cross is from Jupiter 24.00 Taurus in the 12th to Neptune 16.50 Scorpio in the 6th that makes her extremely sympathetic to the plight of racial and immigration prejudice, both her parents are immigrants, which makes her a strange pick as Vice President as she cannot be President, as one parent must be born in the United States. Thus if Biden wins, and something unforetold happens, it would be Speaker of the House and not Kamala Harris could be the next president. This scenario did with the Agnew resignation, Gerald R. Ford, moved up to the Vice Presidency, and when Richard Nixon resigned, Ford became president.
The grand cross influences Sen. Harris he circumstances these planets reside– the rights of the oppressed being mute, (3rd), get meaningful jobs (6th), incarceration either in their body or jail (12th and semisextile her ascendant) how the law and society treat them (9th). These are also the major themes of her presidential bid.

her previous incarnation was spent in various philosophical and mystical pursuits. She had a lot of freedom and independence then and is now her cause for social justice in this.Dr. Mohan Koparkar, Lunar Nodes, self published by Mohan Enterprises c. 1977
