1860: Abraham Lincoln Gives Cooper Union Speech

Abraham Lincoln Purple Stamp Astrology Horoscopes Nick Dagan BestFifty-one year-old U.S. Republican presidential hopeful Abraham Lincoln addresses a large audience at New York City’s Cooper Union, securing northeastern support for his party’s nomination in May. He will win November’s election, despite the fact that his name will be excluded from the ballot in nine southern states.

Transiting Saturn in Leo is opposite Lincoln’s natal Sun in Aquarius, signifying the divisive response to his candidacy, leading to the secession movement following his election. Transiting Uranus in Gemini is opposite natal Saturn and Neptune in Sagittarius, reflecting the obscure midwestern lawyer’s connection with the country’s mounting crisis, and his growing notoriety on the national stage.
