Meet the King of Karma: Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Find clues in the birth chart of this compassionate Capricorn

It's time to celebrate the Karma King! Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. combined masterful skills as a speaker and leader with a heartfelt compassion, crossing racial lines to make him one of the most important American leaders of the 20th Century. 

So what goes into the astrological makeup of such a great man? Dr. King was a Capricorn, born January 15, 1929 at noon in Atlanta, Georgia. His Sun sign, associated with ambition, organization and practicality, is concerned with achieving results rather than simply making statements. It's also notable if you follow Numerology that King has a Number 1 Life Path, which is indicative of pushing forward, taking action and turning dreams into reality -- and as we all now, King had a dream!

Dr. King was known for his compassion and belief in non-violence. That compassion was not just limited to the African-Americans he led, but for all human beings. This sensitivity to suffering of any kind is characteristic of the sign Pisces, in which Dr. King had two planets. Both the Moon and Venus, Astrology's most sensitive players, were in this Water sign, the last of the zodiac.

As the final chapter in the astrological story, Pisces represents the coming together of all thoughts, feelings and individuals. It is the collective sea in which all life exists, which is why compassion is one of this sign's key components. The Age of Pisces began about 2000 years ago when the fisherman of Galilee gave rise to Christianity in the form of a faith of forgiveness and empathy. Dr. King tapped into this spirit in his social and political work, including the sacrifice and eventual martyrdom that was common to the early church founders.

The boundless sensitivity of Dr. King's Moon in Pisces, though, was buttressed by a supportive 120-degree trine from powerful Pluto. This added punch to his chart and potency to his personality. The "can do" attitude of his Capricorn Sun, combined with this emotionally efficient aspect, enabled him to transform American society. The Pisces way, naturally, is all-inclusive, seeking to join black and white, rich and poor, rather than dividing races and classes to pit them against one another.

All of this, though, would have had little effect without Dr. King's strong will and persistence. These qualities, common to Capricorn, were reinforced by a 180-degree opposition between Mars and Saturn in his chart. Mars, the planet of action, is also a warrior, a pioneer that gets things done. Saturn, Capricorn's key or ruling planet, represents cold, hard reality. Dr. King was able to marshal these forces against considerable external resistance. He maintained discipline in the face of insults, attacks and FBI harassment.

Still, aggressive Mars' opposition to Saturn in Dr. King's 8th House of Death and Rebirth also played out in his assassination. It's not common for this fate to befall those with this pattern in their birth charts, but Dr. King was far from a common man. He combined commitment with compassion to set a new standard for leadership that contributed to the world's Karma on a scale that, in the opinion of many, has yet to be matched.

Planets As Teachers: Uranus

By Jeff Jawer

Uranus takes us beyond the bounds of the known. It was the first planet discovered by telescope and doubled the size of the solar system in one night. It came into consciousness between the American and French Revolutions, breaking down the rule of royalty and giving birth to democracy. The late 18th century was also a time of invention as the dawn of the steam age began the process of replacing humans and animal labor with machines. Today Uranus still represents breakthroughs that produce freedom but which also shock us with surprises and uncertainty.
