Today is the celebration of the life and achievements of Dr. Martin Luther King. He was born with Sun in Capricorn and Moon in Pisces, just like we are experiencing today. He combined compassion (Pisces) with hard work (Capricorn in the 10th house); the desire to lead (Sun in 10th) with the desire to follow in the footsteps of those whose lives especially benefited the poor and dispossessed (Moon and Venus in Pisces). Pluto trine the Moon, transformation from within. Note also Chiron (the wounded healer) is conjunct Jupiter, strong in it's own house and his soaring oratory surely benefited from this combination. Mars opposition Saturn can be seen in action with his determination to stand up to bullies, and squaring the Moon we can see how deeply frightened he must have been for his family.
