The Virgo Moon keeps the mood of the collective grounded, conscientious and willing to serve. This is an industrious Monday so pull up your sleeves and get right to work.
It’s also Martin Luther King Day in the U.S. honoring his birthday on Jan 15,1929. Remember that he had a dream which he followed and built upon and created lasting change and awareness. See his natal chart analysis below
The moon opposes Venus and Mars and trines Pluto during the day. This could be a productive think/tank day. Use your intuition and intellect in balance for the greatest results.
The moon will square Saturn in Sagittarius bringing a cold hard bitter taste of reality. Good for your digestion but otherwise hard to swallow. Difficulty with foreigners is a major issue.
The energies feel very tense as Mars in Pisces and Saturn in Sagittarius approach their exact square this week. This is a tough aspect. Tempers are drawn taught. It’s a passive-aggressive game too.
The moon will oppose Chiron as well as MARS CONJUNCT CHIRON in PISCES and many people are feeling depressed, low energy lethargic and hopeless. Addictions escapist urges and scapegoating energies are high. These aspects are difficult and draw on our deepest levels of compassion and faith. Pisces
Mars conjunct Pisces is a cosmic finger in our wounds. Yes, we are feeling vulnerable and hurt. Addictions, escapist urges and scapegoating energies are high. These aspects are difficult and draw on our deepest levels of compassion and faith. Pisces is the source the true God or goddess source. If you are feeling desperate then pray, cry for a vision, for help from the angels from source from the divine mother’s unconditional love. This is a healing crisis in the world.
Read about those who have triumphed over adversity. Who have walked through the fire and emerged unscathed though smelling of smoke and ashes. Like MLK.
Martin Luther King Astrology
Martin Luther King was an earthy hard working Capricorn with his SUN right on his M.H. born at noon. This indicates a person who will achieve worldly success and notoriety. With the Moon in PISCES -the dreamer, the religious idealist-conjunct Ceres, the nurturer and provider of Earth’s children. The Moon in Pisces is in the 11th house of organizers, freedom fighters, radical difference makers. Moon in Pisces indicates a martyr, someone who will sacrifice themselves for an ideal or dream and it is in square to Saturn in SAGITTARIUS, the sign of truth and justice, religion, education and freedom and is also square to MARS Retrograde in GEMINI. MLK was a gifted speechmaker, inspiring leader and a highly energized communicator and debator. Mars Retrograde made him a
Mars Retrograde in his 2nd house of values, made him a peaceful, non-violent warrior. His natal Mars was also Out-of-bounds when he was born, making him a very different kind of man, strategist, and orator. His message was for freedom of actions for all.
MLK also had Venus in Pisces, of course he had a dream, as Venus is opposite to Neptune in VIRGO at Zero degrees.His dreams needed to become practical real and available for all to use.
MLK’s Mercury in AQUARIUS in his 10th house of worldly fame indicates he was a man of higher consciousness, a rule-breaker, a revolutionary, freedom fighter. He always thought outside the box, jail or any limitation.
URANUS the planet which rules Aquarius is in ARIES in the 12th house
This is an unconscious driving force. MLK was a self- starting independent entrepreneurial man and the maker of his own revolution. He had a fiery radical inspired energy. He could ignite people to action.
With Jupiter in TAURUS conjunct his natal Chiron in his 12th house trine Neptune in Virgo
MLK was a stubborn, sensual, hard-working, determined leader. Through his own experience of being locked up in the 12th house, shut out of opportunities, being seen as inconsequential and being relegated to “the back of the bus” through segregation, this wound is what fueled his practical dreams. Jupiter in Taurus in the 12th indicates a martyr as does his PISCES Moon and Venus and Ceres. Jupiter squares his Natal SUN.
With his Natal Pluto in Cancer in his 3rd house opposite his SUN, MLK had incredible powers of persuasion and charisma.
MLK had incredible powers of persuasion, communication soul power and charisma. He could and did move a mountain because he cared so much. MLK was very close to his roots, his family and his Mother.
MLK’s North Node @ 28 degrees TAURUS conjunct to that fixed star ALGOL in his 1st house
Here’s what famed Fixed Star interpreter Diana Rosenberg has to say about ALGOL at 26+ degrees TAURUS. “You will not be able to ignore suffering and horror, or brush it aside… The Algol placement on a chart insists upon a confrontation and assimilation of these harsh aspects of human experience in this lifetime.….Algol, like other stars, confers tasks upon us which, if comprehended and accepted, offer great rewards of power and creativity. These stellar challenges are not to be feared, but understood and used in a positive manner.”
MLK identified as the earthy stubborn bull headed confronter of the darkness.
His SOUTH NODE in SCORPIO in his 7th house indicated that he was married to transformation, to deep emotional power struggles, to much change, death, reformation in his lifetime and in his death. MLK was obsessive about obtaining his goals. He was an intensely sexual man. In his later life, he was a fierce critic of the Vietnam War, and he has begun to preach an uncomfortable gospel that involved the radical redistribution of wealth a very Scorpionic topic.
We all know that he was assassinated in Memphis on April 4, 1968 which sparked many riots in the U.S.
Interesting how today 88 years after his birth. The planet Pluto is exactly opposite to where it was at his birth. The same issues of racial inequality and racism are rearing their heads again in the U.S. and in the world.
The planet Neptune is exactly conjunct to King’s Natal VENUS in PISCES with transiting Venus conjunct his Natal Moon. We are still dreaming about peace, equality, egalitarianism.
Saturn in Sagittarius is only 2 degrees away from King’s Natal Position, this would have been his 3rd Saturn return this year had he not been killed at only 39 years old. Where are we in regards to truth, honesty, education, justice, and freedom with our International countries? These topics are all going through major reshuffling right now.
Transiting CHIRON in Pisces is squaring MLK”s SATURN in SAGITTARIUS
This echoes the same aspect going on now in 2017. The wounds are still there, the dream of peace equality and respect for all life is being held up by Saturn, symbolizing the conservative, restrictive, racist, Patriarchal republican party politics of Donald Trump and an effect that is being felt in the world as well.
Uranus in Aries is squaring MLK’s Natal SUN
Uranus has made one complete revolution since his birth. How far have the ideals and dreams of MLK come? We carry the legacy, it is our karma to evolve.
MLK was a #19 Personality the SUN, the leader, the Source, the inspirer, the life-giving Light.
His hidden teacher number was 10- The Wheel of Fortune – he gambled, he expanded our world.
His root number is #1 THE MAGICIAN. The Magician’s ability is to communicate, to initiate, to invoke through the powers of intention. We are also under the influence of the number 1 Magician year. Use the current energies to monitor your thoughts and intentions to create the magic you wish to see in the world.
Don’t be down about the current energies.
The New moon will change all of this. The Chinese New Year of the fire Phoenix is upon us. The Phoenix is an immortal bird and birds represent souls. We will all rise collectively from our own immolation, from our own destruction, this is Scorpio energy. Jupiter will enter Scorpio in October 2017. We will live again through this destruction and become greater, not through our projections of our own sovereign powers onto any leaders but through owning our own power.
Mars will finish his swim through Pisces purifying waters and enter Aries, his own domicile on the new moon and a new cycle begins again.
Rest now, be patient. All will be well,
