Evenings were the only moments away from war pressures, but whenever Eleanor was around, she pressed Franklin with unceasing demands. “Mother,” Anna curtly told her at one dinner, “can’t you see you are giving Father indigestion.” As Roosevelt aide Rexford Tugwell recalled, “Really serious talk at table was avoided if Roosevelt could manage it. Eleanor, so humorless and so weighed down with responsibility, made this difficult.”
“If I feel depressed,” Mrs. Roosevelt said, “I go to work.”
–Carl Sferrazza Anthony, First Ladies.
Eleanor Roosevelt was born in New York City, in the center of a Transcendental Midpoint-Field that extends from her Primary Saturn, which sets over the eastern seaboard, to her Secondary Uranus, which is positioned over the eastern U.S. in a vertical, Midheaven line that runs just west of New York State. This V-shaped Transcendental Field over the East Coast frames an area that played a primary role in her life: initially as the wife of Governor Roosevelt, of New York, and then as First Lady to President Roosevelt, in Washington, D.C.
One of the most “accomplished / and independent” (Primary Saturn / Secondary Uranus) of First Ladies, in 1933 she called the first press conference ever held by a president’s wife (Uranus rules “innovative action”). After F.D.R.’s death, she was a delegate to the U.N. Assembly; Chairman of the Commission on Human Rights; and U.S. representative at the General Assembly: positions all held within her Transcendental Midpoint-Field region, i.e., in the United Nations building, in New York. Again, these were “ground-breaking roles” (Uranus) for a woman of that period, especially since they represent positions of “serious social responsibility” (Saturn).
Eleanor was known throughout the world as a devoted “humanitarian” (equally underaspected Secondary Jupiter) and a proponent of ethical “ideals / that were well in advance of the times” (Secondary Jupiter-Uranus), such as women’s and minority issues; consumer welfare; civil rights; unemployment; housing rights; and the creation of youth movements. Her characterization as a “responsible, hardworking, / and philanthropic leader / of shockingly liberal causes and innovative, avant-garde values” is aptly reflected by the symbolism of her three Transcendentals: Saturn, Jupiter, and Uranus.
