Birth Chart Planets
Abraham worked in a general store in New Salem for a while and devoted his leisure time to studying. He volunteered for service to fight the Indians, but his service lasted only a few months. He ran for the legislature but lost. Then he bought a store with a partner, but the business went bankrupt. He became postmaster of New Salem in 1833 and studied law in his spare time. He was elected to the legislature in 1834, where 34 is for the division of the land. After serving eight years in the legislature, he moved to Springfield, Illinois to practice law with a partner. He was elected to Congress in 1846, and served one term.
The Kansas-Nebraska Act allowed settlers to decide if they would have slavery in their territories. Lincoln came out against this act, which had been produced mainly by Senator Stephen A. Douglas. Lincoln adopted the position that slavery was immoral and that the government should outlaw it. Although he never opposed slavery before, he became the eloquent spokesman for the Republican Party and the anti-slavery platform. In 1858 he was the opponent of Senator Douglas in the famous Lincoln-Douglas debates. Lincoln was nominated by the Republican Party for President in 1860 and easily won the election on an anti-slavery platform. After years of bitter disagreement, partisan bickering in Congress, and even riots over slavery, the southern states, who saw Lincoln as an abolitionist, considered his election the last straw. Before Lincoln's inauguration, the southern states led by South Carolina December 20, 1860 began seceding from the Union. In his inaugural address he rejected secession and threatened war, while blaming it on the South.
Attempts to reach compromise with the South failed. The negotiations did help to establish some facts for history. First, although slavery stoked the fires of dissent, it was not the cause of the war that followed. There were free states and slave states, and both were legal. Before the war began, Lincoln clearly stated that slavery was not the issue. According to Lincoln, the issue was preserving the Union, and according to the South, it was states rights. To put it more bluntly, the issue was the division of the land. Lincoln took the legalistic position to prohibit the division of the land, while the South took the lawless position that it was free to divide it.
The southern states seceded and formed a Confederate state, which was tantamount to a sovereign nation. When the southern states seceded, they took over the federal forts in their states. In South Carolina, the newly constructed Fort Sumter in Charleston harbor under the command of Major Robert Anderson was still occupied by Union forces.
When Lincoln announced to the Governor of South Carolina on April 6, 1861 that he was sending supplies, not weapons, to Fort Sumter, the Confederacy decided to seize the fort by force before the supply fleet arrived. Confederate Brigadier General P.G.T. Beauregard was ordered to take the fort. He attacked on April 12, 1861. The Union forces in one of the most strongly fortified forts in the world surrendered the next day with no loss of life on either side in spite of almost constant bombardment by Confederate artillery for 34 hours. Anderson was Beauregard's instructor at West Point. Anderson insisted on a 100 gun salute prior to returning to the North with the supply fleet. The salute was stopped at 50 when a premature discharge of a gun caused an explosion of a pile of cartridges. One soldier was killed and another died later. The Union soldiers were transported aboard the southern steamer Isabel to the Baltic, which carried them back north. Note, the name Isabel is the same as Jezebel.
On April 15, 1861, President Lincoln called for 75,000 militia, and the War Between the States began. President Lincoln supported exceptionally high tariffs (47%) (approved by President Buchanan) and instituted the national income tax in 1861 to finance an army for war with the South. To raise the money to pay Union troops, Lincoln sponsored the Legal Tender Act of 1862 and the US Government began printing its own money. That was the second shot heard round the world because the Europeans bankers controlled world finance, including much of the money in US banks. Printing his own money circumvented the world banking monopoly over money. But by the next year the US bankers slapped such high surcharges on the greenbacks that Lincoln was forced to agree to the National Banking Act of 1963 to get their support for printing and circulating additional greenbacks. The National Banking Act created National Banks, which were authorized to issue National Bank Notes (paper money).
The War Between the States, the bloodiest war in US history, raged for four years until General Lee surrendered at Appomattox Court House, Virginia on April 9, 1865. Five days later, President Lincoln was shot on Good Friday, April 14, 1865 at Ford's Theater. He was shot by an actor, John Wilkes Booth, at 10:15 PM. The shot to the back of Lincoln's head was mortal, and he died at 7:22 AM the next morning, April 15, 1865, at age 56 on the fourth anniversary of the day he started the War Between the States. Here the numbers mean: 7:22, cursing; 15, covering; 65, going down, and 56, soldiers dropping like dung in the open field. Lincoln died six days after the end of the war, where 6 is for a man stripped of his power facing sentencing before the throne of the conquering king.
Lincoln's death on the fourth anniversary of the War he started at 7:22 AM was the sign of a curse. He died because he started the war. He bowed to the influence of Satan and became the Evil King. Therefore, God sentenced him to death by the hand of Satan, the murderer. As a pawn of Satan, Lincoln became a tyrant who sought to destroy the South. It was Satan's idea to divide the land, and then to conquer. Neither Lincoln nor the Christian leaders of the South saw this. Like the man and the woman in the Garden, both sinned. However, the man, who was in the position of authority, was responsible. Similarly, Abraham Lincoln, as President, bore the responsibility for starting the War. Consequently, he died on the anniversary of the day he started the war. And, like the woman in the Garden, the South was also punished. It had been devastated by the War.
Lincoln's Birth Sign is Aquarius, the Water Bearer, which can be the sign of an antichrist. This does not mean that Lincoln was demon possessed and openly opposing the Gospel. Lincoln was a polarizing leader who was steeped in legalistic, moral degeneracy. He was the primary force in dividing the country. He represented the industrial and urban North in opposition to the agricultural and rural South. The North and South were divided between legalism and lawlessness. They had been at the breaking point for years, and Lincoln exacerbated the problem by staking out a moral claim as an abolitionist to look down his self-righteous nose at the South. The debate was in the realm of ethics because the laws of the South supported slavery, and even the US Supreme Court agreed. Lincoln had no legal basis for his abolitionist platform and initially had no strong feelings against slavery personally. However, to get votes and win elections, he contrived compelling moral arguments against a problem that did not exist in the North and was not rampant in the South. This all demonstrates what is termed antichrist to describe a person in moral degeneracy inciting snobbish outrage against those in the South who were viewed as immoral and lawless hypocrites.
Lincoln's Ascendant sign was Aquarius on the cusp of Capricornus. He was born at Sunrise. The Sun in Aquarius symbolizes an antichrist, as already discussed. Having the Sun on the Ascendant adds even greater significance to the sign in Lincoln's life. However, since Capricornus had just finished rising, its significance would also be significant. Capricornus, the Goat, is a symbol of the Gentiles and sin. Although Lincoln may have been a Christian, he certainly appeared to others as a Gentile unbeliever. His scriptural quotes may have furthered the moral argument, but he appeared to a discerning Christian to be spiritually dead and full of darkness. Further, the Moon was rising in Capricornus. Thus, his Moon sign symbolized a Gentile audience. However, the Moon phase was only two days short of the New Moon. The darkness of the Moon would lessen the power of its support, e.g. the support of the Gentiles and his Right Woman.
Midheaven was in Scorpius in conjunction with the Redeemer and God of the Covenants Planet. Since Scorpius symbolizes the evil one and Midheaven represents glory or fame, the two planets in Midheaven in Scorpius signify a famous power of the evil one. Now, Lincoln had a choice. He could have chosen God over Satan. But short of being submissive to God, growing to Spiritual Maturity, and resisting the devil, he was doomed to Satan's power.
The God of the Covenants Planet in Scorpius signifies a liar. Satan was a liar and the father of lies. There are many kinds of lying. Lincoln's own words, not unlike many politicians, do have some strong contradictions, which historians have conveniently ignored. For instance, here is what Lincoln said he believed about racial equality in the Lincoln-Douglas debates in Charleston, Illinois on September 18, 1858.
I am not now, nor ever have been, in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races - that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of making voters or jurors of Negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and the black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social or political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be a position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white man.3However, Lincoln's biggest lie was succumbing to the power of Satan to become an antichrist and an Evil King to split the nation. Lincoln's convincing rhetoric and polished oratory were neither honest nor truthful. In his Gettysburg Address, he quoted, "all men are created equal," but he did not believe that Blacks were equal with Whites. The lie is so smooth, slick, and crafty while couched in noble humility and scholarly prose that the even an objective listener would humbly bow in homage to the most despicable deceit and half-truth. Such is the style of Satan, the master of deceit, lies, and half-truths. Lincoln raised an army to attack the South after the Fort Sumter incident. Then he supported burning and destroying Southern crops and cities, which were of no military value. He even enjoyed listening to the gory details in daily reports.
The Redeemer Planet in Scorpius symbolizes Balaam and a lover of money. The love of money is the root of all evil, and Balaam was one of the most despised characters in the Bible because of his love of money, which drove him into Satan's camp to oppose Israel. Now, Lincoln's love of money would not be comparable to Balaam's in most people's eyes. However, Lincoln was heavily involved with money. He started the national income tax in 1861 to pay for the war. And when money ran out, he began printing greenback dollars in 1862. That act was quite brilliant. It was a declaration of independence from the financial slavery of Satan's power over world banking. The European bankers despised Lincoln and lent money to their governments to support the South. Bismarck remarked that the European bankers opposed Lincoln because his financial policies "would upset the capitalist domination of Europe over the world." This was tantamount to the beginning of a world war of finance.
The Mediator Planet in Libra signifies a mediator or lawyer. Lincoln was a lawyer.
In addition to the Sun, Lincoln had two other planets in Aquarius. They were the Savior Planet and the Last Adam. These planets within three degrees of each other could be considered in conjunction. The Savior Planet in Aquarius signifies a spokesman. Lincoln was the spokesman for the Republican Party and an accomplished communicator. He wrote about himself in his journals from the time he was in his teens, and he became a compelling orator. The Last Adam in Aquarius symbolizes reviving or saving. Lincoln's ambition, of course, was to save the Union.
There were also two planets in Pisces, the Fish. The Almighty God Planet in Pisces can represent the Monster Whale, a symbol of a giant, such as Baal. Baal was the driving force behind both Lincoln and the leaders of the South. Satan operating through the power of Baal, was trying to destroy the USA and prevent it from being a Client Nation to God. The Morning Star in Pisces is the sign of a High Priest. Jesus Christ is the High Priest of the Church. However, Lincoln's deep spiritual (not Christian) nature was like that of a High Priest representing the people to God. This coincides with the spiritual nature of Lincoln's Chart with all of the planets except two in the left hemisphere, which is the spiritual side.
The Ascendant sign was the Moon in Scorpius, the sign of the Synagogue of Satan, which is synonymous with the Prostitute of Babylon, or Jezebel. This is more irony. Lincoln represented the Evil King, but he died from a counterattack of Jezebel. He was shot by John Wilkes Booth, a Confederate sympathizer, just as the Moon reached the Ascendant. The Confederacy represented the Prostitute of Babylon. The War Between the States was not a war over slavery. It was a cultural war between legalism and lawlessness. The North represented legalism and the Evil King, and the South represented lawlessness and the Prostitute of Babylon. All of the animosity between the North and the South lined up behind legalism with its moral degeneracy and lawlessness with its immoral degeneracy. Slavery was immoral, although it was legal. Seceding was lawlessness, but trying to kill those who seceded was legalism. Neither side was right, but God appointed Abraham Lincoln and gave him the power to win. The Evil King wins over the Prostitute of Babylon.
The Ascendant symbolizing the Synagogue of Satan also reveals the underlying reason for the War. The nation lacked the blessing of the salt of the Earth of mature Christians. Jezebel had infiltrated the churches in both the North and the South. The churches of the South were segregated, which shows disregard for Church Age doctrine. Granted there were some exceptions, like Stonewall Jackson, who taught Black children in his Sunday School class.5 However, the sum total of Christians who had not succumbed to the power of Jezebel was not enough to preserve the nation. So, like a bad marriage, the woman walked out, and the man became angry. Satan infiltrated the North as the Evil King and the South as the Prostitute of Babylon. But God, who was a step ahead of everyone, gave the Evil King the power to subdue the Prostitute of Babylon, and thus preserve the Union.
The two Yods pointed at each other symbolize war. One Yod is pointed at the Moon in Scorpius, which symbolizes the attack against the Prostitute of Babylon, or Synagogue of Satan. The other Yod points to the Morning Star in Taurus, a sign of the mighty victor. Lincoln had just won the War Between the States five days before. However, the Morning Star was setting and the Moon was rising. Therefore, the glory of Lincoln's victory had faded and the evil of the Prostitute of Babylon, who inspired the lawlessness of John Wilkes Booth, was rising. Therefore, the mighty victor in war was murdered by a criminal in a time of peace. The murder was the work of Satan, the murderer from the beginning. And God allowed Satan to administer the final judgment to Abraham Lincoln.
The Mystic Rectangle balances two sets of oppositions. The first opposition was the Sun in Aries (leader's glory) and the God of the Covenants Planet in Libra (Justice). Lincoln was a leader with glory. He had just been re-elected President and had won the War. However, the Justice of God did not vindicate him, and Satan was allowed to execute him. The other opposition was the Mediator Planet in Gemini (Mediator of marriage disputes) and the Almighty God Planet in Sagittarius (conquering army). The disagreements that led to the War were like a marriage dispute. When mediation failed, war followed. The dispute was finally settled by the conquering army of the North.
