Twenty year-old aristocrat orphan Eleanor Roosevelt marries her fifth cousin once removed, Franklin Roosevelt. Her uncle, U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt, gives her away at the ceremony, which is reported on the front page of the New York Times the following day. Her new mother-in-law bought the newlyweds a house, three blocks away from her own.
Transiting Saturn in Aquarius is opposite Rooseveltâ€™s natal Jupiter in Leo, indicating a young womanâ€™s submission to the powerful personalities around her. Transiting Mercury in Aries is opposite natal Mercury in Libra, signifying a union of two opposite but complimentary personalities.
