Who is Joe Biden?
Joe Biden was born in 1942, on 20th November. His official website states that he comes from “humble beginnings” in Pennsylvania.
Biden, the eldest of four children, spent his early years in the city of Scranton, though he relocated with his family to Delaware at the age of 10. Delaware, his website says, is the “state Joe calls home.”
As a young adult, he saw the movements of Martin Luther King and John F. Kennedy, and says he was “swept up in their eloquence, their conviction, the sheer size of their improbable dreams.”
He gained a college education at the University of Delaware, studying history and political science. Later, he would go on to have three children – two sons named Robert and Joseph, and a daughter named Naomi.
His first introduction to political campaigning came as a member of the New Castle County Council. Aged only 29, he was elected to the US Senate.
Shortly after his election, the family was hit by tragedy. Biden’s wife and daughter were killed in a car accident, while his two sons were also left injured.
He remarried in 1977 in a ceremony in New York City. He later welcomed a daughter, named Ashley, with wife Jill.
During Obama’s eight-year presidential run, Biden was vice-president, a role that brought him global recognition. The two political figures are said to have formed a close friendship during their time in office.
Some of his key political statements are around the topics of healthcare, bipartisanship, and maintaining America’s role as a global leader.
Biden, a Democrat, has been heavily critical of Donald Trump, saying of the prospect of Trump gaining a second term in office, that he “cannot stand by and watch that happen.” He criticized Trump’s handling of the coronavirus global pandemic, publicly saying “You know the steps you’ve taken so far haven’t gotten the job done…Fix the shortage of PPE for our health care workers before you tee off another round of golf.”
Trump has hit back at Biden, saying that he is “Sleepy and very slow.”
What Does it Mean to be a Scorpio?
Those born between October 23rd and November 21st fall in the Scorpio zodiac sign, meaning Biden is a Scorpio.
Belief in the ability of the position of the planets and stars on our birthdate to influence or predict our personality traits is controversial, however, it appears that many are interested in their zodiac signs. In a 2005 survey, 25% of Americans said that they believed in astrology.
Scorpios are said to be brooding, complex characters. According to astrologists, Scorpios are romantically intense and like to know their partner in great detail.
They’re strategic and are, according to Cosmopolitan, “On point, focussed and ready to work their charms/strengths/advantages to get what they want.” Scorpios are also said to be curious and intrigued by mystery, as well as loyal and protective over those they love.
Another key Scorpio trait is persistence, a trait that Biden has certainly shown through his political career, having run for president multiple times.
Astrologists believe that Scorpios also tend to be career-driven, another trait that can be applied to the politician, who remains actively campaigning in his 70s.
Scorpios are said to get along well with those who have the zodiac signs of Cancer and Pisces, and in some cases, Aries.
