Prediction of President Roosevelt’s Administration
We will now proceed to a careful
analysis of the horoscope for the moment Theodore Roosevelt placed
his hand upon the Bible, and subscribing to the constitutional oath,
became the twenty-sixth President of this glorious land.
By a singular and most remarkable
coincidence, the signs Capricorn and Aquarius were rising at the
moment Mr. Roosevelt  became
President (the reader will note that these two signs were rising
when McKinley was shot). Saturn is chief ruler, with Uranus co-ruler.
However, I will make most of my deductions from Saturn as he is
doubtless ruler. According to the rules of the ancient astrologers,
this signifies that many alterations, amendments, or changes in
the laws, customs, policies, treaties, religions, etc., of the land
shall occur. Our enemies shall be confounded and the matchless,
irresistible march of American supremacy will meet most wonderful
impetus. Vast political problems, the like of which we do not dream
of to-day, will present themselves for solution during his occupancy
of the White House. He will prove himself a most consummate statesman,
clever politician and wise ruler.
The “Sun,” which in astrology indicates
the President, and signifies “Shining from on high,” is in sextile
aspect with the meridian of the horoscope, and in trine with the
ascending degree; a very fortunate testimony. This denotes that
the President will be entirely successful in all matters of international
The sign on the meridian of the horoscope
is “Scorpio,” the most “martial” of all signs and as “Mars” rules
that sign, and is located therein, it denotes that he will live
and act his own personality and impress the Roosevelt idea of unceasing
activity and energetic aggression on all public affairs; no half-hearted,
halting, hesitating policy will find lodgment in the President’s
active brain. A world-wide policy of sturdy Americanism will be
developed. Its first evidence will be visible ere long.
In spite of popular clamor from some
parts of the country, the military and martial spirit will continue
to pervade the land, for, with Mars highest elevated, the “Hero
of San Juan” will have a tender regard for the disciples of the
“god of war.”
The position of Uranus in the eleventh
house is an ill omen as it denotes strange and remarkable political
changes. In congress there will be great liability of unusual opposition.
There will be many bitter disputes, and some unusual political expedients
will be resorted to. There are also some aspects denoting a remark-
 able recrudesence [sic]
of crime and outrages against the public peace and welfare; also
plots, schemes, intrigues and fulminations against the government
from unfriendly sources may be looked for. But Jupiter is in the
twelfth house and therefore acts as a sort of protection (astrologically)
for us against foes.
There are omens that a terrible calamity
will befall some school, eleemosynary or reformatory establishment
in which the general government has some direct interest; it may
be a training school of some sort. The same aspect also portends
the death of some very intimate friend, relative, or cabinet
official; probably the latter; this death will occur through “accident”
It is remarkable that the great conjunction
of Saturn and Jupiter, in November of this year, will occur in the
sign “Capricornus” which is the ascendant of this horoscope. This
denotes that a new epoch, so to speak, will be ushered in in 1902;
in these changes, the President will prove a remarkable figure,
for he will be very victorious in most things.
All classes may look forward to a
period of material prosperity for some years to come; still, I bid
speculators beware,—a crash is surely coming and securities will
certainly drop to rock bottom.
The Moon is singularly separating
from Saturn and Uranus, which seems to symbolize the great sorrow
the nation has just experienced; but she is now fortunately applying
to Venus which adds promise of prosperity to our people and also
denotes that the President will prove one of the most popular executives
we have ever had. His picturesque aggressiveness will strike a responsive
chord in the hearts of our people.
The President has declared that he
will carry out the policies of his predecessor; he will, but only
in so far as they do not conflict with his own theories of government;
then he will inject his own ideas into the policies he will pursue.
Those policies will meet the seconding acclaim of the people.
In the Prediction on McKinley occur
these words: 
“The President’s present cabinet
will not all serve their full term, for a radical change therein
I merely wish to re-affirm that prediction.
In so doing I wish to direct attention to the fact that Mr. Roosevelt
has asked them individually and collectively to remain with him
during his entire term. We shall see.
The Sun is the President’s general
significator and is free from affliction of Saturn, Uranus or Mars;
hence he need have no fear of deadly assault. Many rumors of plots
against him will be heralded, but in most cases they will probably
be hatched in the fertile brain of some fame-thirsting amateur detective.
In spite of the fact that the people
will be generally prosperous, a strong spirit or element of unrest
will come to the surface. Dissatisfaction will be rife, as indicated
by Mercury in evil aspect and applying to Saturn in the “house of
sorrow, discontent, etc.;” hence there will be a constant groping
and searching for some universal political panacea which will take
the form of many gatherings, meetings and discussions by political
and labor leaders.
A national contest anent some will,
legacy, treaty, agreement or some such affair will attract international
attention and cause grave comment. The Sun and Moon signify our
“foreign relationships” (governmental) and as they are both free
from strong malefic influence I do not apprehend any serious results
from certain matters of dispute with a foreign power which will
manifest themselves ere long. Still, Mars is very strong in this
horoscope and we shall witness a serious disagreement which may
cause the timid to quake, but have no fear; “Bellona’s call” will
not startle us, at least not during this term. The civil service
will be extended by the President but will meet bitter opposition
in congress and amongst his friends. Many of the old “stand-by”
politicians will fall into oblivion, for a new set of comparatively
young men will forge to the front and with more activity and aggressiveness,
hold the reins of government. Trusts and commercial combinations
will continue their uninterrupted march, for the present, but there
is a dark day  ahead; slowly
but surely the leaven of government ownership or regulation is working,
almost imperceptibly, but the day is not far distant.
When Congress assembles we shall be
treated to many remarkable surprises in the political policies of
our land, and some of the late President’s policies, which Mr. Roosevelt
solemnly declared he would continue, will meet “death in the house
of his friends.” The campaign of 1904 will reveal the beginning
of the end of the Democratic party as now constituted, and as the
Republican party arose, Phoenix like, from the ashes of the old
Whig party under the reconstructive influence of Uranus, the planet
which always signifies remarkable events of a revolutionary order,
so will the Democratic party date its final rehabilitation from
the crushing defeat which will be administered to it in the election
of Mr. Roosevelt in 1904, by an unprecedented majority.
After writing and dispatching the
foregoing prediction, I received a letter from a correspondent who
“Does not the death of McKinley annul
the balance of the prediction which may not, up to the present have
I answered, by no means! no more than
did the death of John Brown stay or change the course of abolition.
The “spirit” or “aura” of abolition was prevalent in the very “soul”
of America. The “spirit” or “aura” of Wm. McKinley’s administration
will be present during the continuation of the presidential term
ending March 4, 1905. The reader will note that the latter prediction
embraces many items not mentioned in the first horoscope. The “darkness”
or “shadow” in the first horoscope in which the assassination was
foreshadowed by the ominous ray of “Uranus” was dispelled in the
culmination of that dreadful event. Hence the trend of events will
continue along similar lines, though somewhat amplified by the indications
as signified in President Roosevelt’s horoscope above submitted.
