Background
This is part of many articles I have researched on the USA:    Horoscope of George W Bush;    USA Presidents who died in Office    USA horoscope,    USA and Middle East Wars

Four Presidents of the United States of America have been assassinated while in office: Abraham Lincoln; James Garfield; William McKinley and John F Kennedy. This research shows the transits and solar returns for both the U.S.A. horoscope and the horoscope of each president, which led to their deaths.

Based on my own intense astrology research, shown in USA horoscope,  I believe the USA horoscope, the time the USA was ‘born’ occurred at 2:12 am on 4 July 1776 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.
MC means midheaven; 10th house cusp. SR means solar return. IC means 4th house cusp.

Assassination of President Abraham Lincoln
President Lincoln was assassinated on 14 April 1865.
 
Lincoln's Transits 1865
1. Solar Eclipse (50 Taurus) opposition Lincoln’s Node & Uranus. Fated (Node) assassination (Uranus) triggered off by solar eclipse.
2. Saturn in Libra conjunct Lincoln’s Mars (Nov 1864, 6 May 1865). Saturn Mars, the ‘death axis’. Death (Mars Saturn).
An opposition of these planets killed President Garfield!
3. Neptune in Aries conjunct Lincoln’s Venus (Mar, Dec 1865). Assassin (Neptune) kills Lincoln (Venus rules 12th house of death).
4. Neptune in Aries 450 to Lincoln’s Sun (Apr 1865). Chaos (Neptune) to Lincoln’s life force (Sun).
5. Saturn in Libra square Lincoln’s Moon (stationary Jan-Feb, Oct 1865). A fatal (Saturn) attack (square) on Lincoln (Moon, a public figure).  
6. Saturn in Libra 1350 to Lincoln’s Pluto (late Mar, Sep 1865). Ruthless violence (Saturn Pluto). Pluto was 1350 from USA Saturn when President Garfield was assassinated!

 Lincoln's Solar Return 1865
1. SR Mars (9 Gemini) conjunct USA Ascendant & USA Uranus. Violent planet Mars attacking USA Ascendant & Uranus.
2. SR Chiron (13 Pisces) conjunct Lincoln’s Pluto (14 Pisces). Fated (Pluto) death (Chiron). Chiron is frequently associated with a death.

4. SR
Jupiter (10 Aries) conjunct Garfield’s Pluto. Jupiter Pluto is ‘win or lose a million’. He died and so lost all his assets to his heirs.
5. SR
Venus and SR Node (both 28 Sagittarius) conjunct Garfield’s IC (28 Sagittarius). Public (Node) assassination causing death (4th house rules one’s death). 
6. SR Saturn (23 Aries) (exact) square Garfield’s Neptune (23 Capricorn), in 4th house. Saturn Neptune is a severe emotional or health crisis. Severe (Saturn and square) life threat (Neptune in 4th house of one’s death).   

USA Horoscope 1881

Between July and September 1881, Mars, Neptune, Saturn, Jupiter, Chiron, Venus and Pluto were all in USA 12th house of mourning and death. Dark times indeed. A President had to die!

  USA Solar Return 1881
1. SR Ascendant (24 Virgo) conjunct USA Neptune (22 Virgo). USA (Ascendant) confused and bewildered (Neptune) by assassination (Neptune).
2. SR Moon
(12 Libra) conjunct USA Saturn (15 Libra). Mourning (Saturn Moon) in USA.
3. SR Node (17 Sagittarius) conjunct SR IC (23 Sagittarius). Significant (Node) death (4th house rules end of life).

5. SR MC

I suggest this is stunning evidence of the accuracy of the USA horoscope I am using.  

Assassination of President William McKinley
President McKinley was shot on 6 September 1901. He died on 14th September.

 
McKinley's Transits 1901 
1. Saturn
(stationary 10 Capricorn, mid-Aug to end Sept) conjunct McKinley’s 12th house cusp (8 Capricorn).
Serious (Saturn) health concerns (12th house). 
2. Solar Eclipse
(27 Taurus) (mid May 1901) conjunct McKinley’s IC (25 Taurus). Eclipse signalling the end of life (4th house).
3. Solar Eclipse (18 Scorpio) (mid Nov) conjunct McKinley’s Mars (18 Scorpio). Eclipse on Mars, the god of war and violence. 
The two eclipses combined show a ‘violent’-‘end of life’.
4. Saturn
(stationary 25 Aug-4 Oct) in Capricorn conjunct McKinley’s Node. Mourners attending a funeral (Saturn Node). When Lincoln was assassinated, the USA SR also showed Saturn conjunct Node!
5. Pluto (stationary Jul-Nov) in Gemini 1350 to McKinley’s Ascendant. Assassination (Pluto) of McKinley (Ascendant). 
6. Uranus (stationary Aug-mid Sept) in Gemini 1350 to McKinley’s Moon. Fear and anxiety (Uranus Moon). Threat (Uranus) to life (12th house Moon).  7. Mars (14 Sep) in Scorpio square Sun. Violent (Mars) threat (square) to McKinley’s life (Sun).

5. SR Ascendant
(18 Pisces) opposition USA NE (22 Virgo). Assassination (Neptune) staring McKinley in the face (Ascendant). The USA SR Ascendant was conjunct the USA Neptune when Garfield was assassinated! Clearly, Neptune is one of the planets which rule assassination.
6. SR Moon (7 Gemini) conjunct USA Ascendant (7 Gemini) and USA Uranus (9 Gemini). The USA public (Ascendant) in emotional (Moon) shock (Uranus).

9. SR Node
(28 Scorpio) conjunct McKinley MC (26 Scorpio). End (Node entering 10th house) of Presidency (MC). Lincoln and Garfield were both assassinated with the USA SR Node conjunct SR 4th house. Clearly the Node going through the 4/10 house cusp axis is potentially life threatening.
