Abraham Lincoln was born 12th Feb 1809, 6 54 am at Hodgenville, Kentucky. So let’s jump right in and see what makes him the most loved president.
I think what differentiates him is that he fought for others, especially the ones who couldn't fight their own battle. It is all thanks to the position of Mars & Rahu in the sign of Libra. And not only are Mars & Rahu in Libra but also in the house of career (10th house).
Mars & Rahu are perhaps the most aggressive and passionate planets and together with Libra, they make a lethal combination. Because even though Libra is a peaceful sign; it has a strong sense of justice. Injustice or discrimination brought out the warrior in him. He fought to abolish slavery for the large part of his political career.
"Do you know he shares the Mars in Libra placement with Mahatama Gandhi? If you have this placement too then I am sure you are fighting somewhere for the rights of others"
His style of communication was quite grandiose, as per my research. He would take off on a tangent and start talking philosophy much to the frustration of others (I am basing it on several scenes from the movie, Lincoln). And the internet is full of quotes by Lincoln. All of this is a very very Jupiter thing and guess what he has Jupiter in the house of communication (3rd house). And it is sitting in the sign of Pisces, which is again ruled by Jupiter. Interestingly he also has Venus sitting close to Jupiter in the same house, so Venus would make his stories quite entertaining.
But Jupiter & Venus are not the best of friends and they look at things differently and so his communication could have been a bit confusing. Anyhow it goes without saying that he had a strong house of communication. Another interesting thing is that he has Sun & Mercury in the 2nd house, which represents throat or tone of voice. I could not find a live footage of him speaking, but I am sure his voice carried a lot of weight/authority especially with Sun in the 2nd house.
So he met Mary in 1840 and soon got engaged but later he broke the engagement for some reason. They reconciled and got married in late 1842. All of this happened during the time period of Rahu & Venus. Venus’ time period, in particular, is always an indication of marriage, especially in a man’s chart. But it is Rahu that loves drama.
Another interesting thing is the position of Ketu in the 4th house, which is the house of family life/home. So even though his marriage survived the test of time, he would have been a bit aloof or not very involved at home.
He is a Capricorn ascendant, which is perhaps the most disciplined sign of all. And he has Moon sitting in this house, which is a difficult position for the Moon (mind). Saturn rules the sign of Capricorn and Moon sitting in the neighborhood of Saturn always feel the burden of life. I read many reports of him going through cycles of depression. But he was able to overcome his difficulties/anxieties through discipline & self-control.
“Discipline is choosing between what you want now, and what you want most”
He was elected as the President in November 1860 while he was going through the time period of Jupiter and Rahu. The Jupiter & Rahu combination is an interesting time in anyone’s life. Jupiter, if well placed, brings fame & recognition and Rahu is the king of dramatic events. The Jupiter and Rahu combination reappeared in his life after 1831-33 and this time it took him to the presidency. Within a short span of holding office, he achieved a lot of things but his most notable achievement is abolishing slavery. It seems to me that he was sent to abolish slavery and soon after he achieved it, he was called back in 1865.
