MLK Assassinated during LBJ's Jupiter Return

April 4, 2018: upon the occasion of the 50th anniversary of Dr. King's death, here is a bi-wheel of two horoscopes. Center is a chart set for April 4, 1968 9:06 pm ET White House (timed via historical record) when President Johnson ('LBJ') addressed the nation on TV upon the evening of the Martin Luther King assassination. Outer is the natal horoscope of LBJ (August 27, 1908 6:20 am CST Johnson City, Texas) which shows his natal Jupiter @26Leo34 in process of a three-fer Jupiter Return and topping the Midheaven, the Goal Point, at the moment of his address to the nation. As you know, expansive Jupiter returns to natal degree approximately every 12 years and tends to bring rewards (see note in green, lower right).

Also added is the Carelli Degree for the Ascendant (the address itself): '16Scorpio' (Carelli does not round up) = "A knight of the Holy Grail" which suggests secret society involvement and those of a Venus worshiping persuasion. As you see on April 4, 1968, transit Venus in sacrificial Pisces was leading all the planets in a ruthless Locomotive pattern. LBJ's natal Uranus Rx @13Cap12 was his first planet to rise as he spoke tat night and was leader of his own Locomotive pattern--and opposed US natal Sun and goddess star Sirius (The Scorcher).

Both horoscopes--the 1968 address and LBJ's birth chart--occurred during Jupiter Hours and if you can read my notes penned on the charts you can see the dates of LBJ's Saturn Return 1967/1968 (another three-fer) and his Jupiter Return dates ranging from 1967 to 1968. Other chart notes are penned on as well and I hope you can read them. Violent measures and shocks (1968 Mars-Pluto = US natal Sun, the leader) are part of this picture but today I shall not expand upon such tragic themes committed against Dr. King, his family and associates, and against the American people other than to point you toward LBJ's 1968 address planets as transits to his natal horoscope.

The Prenatal Eclipse of the MLK Assassination

The tragic and cruel Assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr on April 4, 1968 at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee 'killed the man but not The Dream'. Here is a link to his I Have a Dream speech delivered on August 28, 1963 during the March on Washington For Jobs and Freedom--for Civil and Economic Rights of African-Americans. Obviously, the power elite of DC and elsewhere did not appreciate Dr. King's rising popularity and that of his causes which threatened their leadership and promised to elevate opposition to the Vietnam War and combine it with the Civil Rights Movement.

Resident of the Oval Office in April 1968 (until Nixon was elected) was Lyndon Baines Johnson who some assert was behind the JFK assassination and if so, LBJ would have had no compunction about ordering the death of MLK (and RFK), would he? Now as an American, I loathe mentioning such possibilities but there it is. Besides, most everyone knows that Lyndon Johnson was a ruthless politician who vehemently hated the Kennedys. And of course, Robert Kennedy was also shot in 1968 on June 5th, and died the next day. Related video: History is proving that LBJ killed Kennedy.

6 North: the Prenatal Solar Eclipse of the MLK and RFK Assassinations

As you know, 'cosmic blinks'--eclipses--are known as 'wild cards' of the Universe for they tend to express erratic and disruptive Uranian energies in table-turning, change-of-direction ways. The operative Solar Eclipse which manifested on March 28, 1968 @8Aries can be credited with these murderous political crimes via eclipse themes which may not seem particularly ruthless until we consider the real world events that took place under 6 North's background influence, plus, the political vibes of the era which, then as now, do not include the sharing of power and control. And in 1968, the last vibes of the rebellious, daring Uranus-Pluto conjunction/s of the mid-1960s remained in force though waning. Also Uranus-Pluto is the 'collapse of the old order, construction of the new' pair of generational planets (Ebertin) and 'success at any cost' implications included the removal of all obstacles to that success. We may also wish to note that the 1968 eclipse @8Aries conjoined and thus triggered the natal Sun-Mars midpoint of Dr. King while opposing his difficult Saturn-Pluto midpoint in Libra. Sun-Mars = vitality, vigor, activity; Saturn-Pluto = cruelty and violence.

Themes of 6 North: relationship to authority figures, the need to take control and responsibility, accepting commitments due to another person's illness or unreliability (Brady). So if we extend themes of 'illness' and 'unreliability' to matters of death and the need to 'take control' of the US (or, remove control from Reverend King and a potential President Robert Kennedy) someone chose to give the American people the assassinations of MLK and RFK.

A Solar Eclipse in the 6 North Saros Series last manifested on April 19, 2004 @30Aries and will next occur on April 30, 2022 @10Taurus. The initial 6 North eclipse perfected on May 15, 850 (OS) @27Tau55. The only Great Conjunction to perfect in 2022 is between the bubbly duo of speculation and schemes Jupiter and Neptune on April 12, 2022 @23Pis59--Pisces, the sign ruled by boundary-breaking Jupiter and co-ruled by nebulous, undermining, eroding Neptune. Which reminds me--in April 1968, transit Neptune conjoined US natal Pluto in Capricorn, a planetary timer of erosion of power and the rise of a public figure with a religious message.

Now if you wish a view, here's the MLK Assassination Horoscope of April 4, 1968 6:08 pm CST Memphis, TN which I posted to SO'W along with a few chart details upon the occasion of the 45th anniversary of his death in 2013. Please note that a source I used back then gave '6:08 pm' but today's sources give '6:01 pm' though the planets remain in the same houses either way. And as you'll see, transit Chiron (the wound, the wounded healer; the priest or reverend) was at the Aries Point (00:25) which, 50 years hence, will again be the case for the Centaur 3 times upcoming on April 17, 2018, September 25, 2018, and February 18, 2019.

You may also wish to to see Dr. King's natal horoscope (January 15, 1929 12:00 pm cst Atlanta, Georgia RR: A) and his natal Chiron in Taurus, sign of the neck and the location of the bullet that cruelly pierced him.

Horoscope: Martin Luther King Jr Assassination

That Balcony in Memphis as Mountain Tops Fall

by Jude Cowell

April 4, 2013: with today the 45th anniversary of the assassination of Civil Rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, here's a horoscope of the gunfire at 6:08 pm CST Memphis, TN, on April 4, 1968. Please click to enlarge the chart image and read a few basic astro-notes I've scribbled messily about.

Note: current online sources give a time of '6:01 pm' but the horoscope you see here is from my files of several years ago. 7 minutes difference would change the midpoints at ASC and MC, of course, but I'll simply provide this timeline link and you may do what you wish with the discrepancy. Cusps change by one or two degrees but planets remain in the houses as you see here.

Moon out-of-bounds (OOBs) denotes faulty emotional connections; Hour of Mercury = killed for the rhetorical skills of his inspiring speeches, and for his mercurial plans to unite the Civil Rights and Workers' Rights movements with the Anti-War movement against the Vietnam War. Ascendant 12Lib46 brings up US natal Saturn 14Lib48 (the US government's responsibility?), plus, Dr. king's natal 6th house of Service, Work, and Military. Opposite is his natal 12th cusp of Karma, Self-Undoing, Hospitals, Secret Deals, and Politics which has Aries Point of Recognition on it @00Ari25--where wounding Chiron sat on April 4, 1968 at 6:08 pm CST, Memphis.

More Chiron activity is noted since Mars, the shooter, @5Tau53 in the 7th house of Open enemies, conjoins Dr. King's natal 12th house Chiron @5Tau25, which was stationary (highlighted) at his birth. Natal Chiron can, of course, in its mentor-guru role, relate closely to preaching and teaching, and in Taurus, indicates a crisis over the preservation of values, and to physical body concerns (such as murder, in this case.)

You see the karmic Sun-Saturn conjunction setting in the chart (at Descendant) and considering other chart factors along with his natal horoscope, Dr. King's growing authority and his popularity made him a major threat to the powers behind the throne which guide America's Oval Office. Same goes for Robert F. Kennedy who was assassinated under many of the same planetary signatures but in this chart, Dr. King's Part of Fatality is conjoined by the Sun (leadership) and karmic Saturn, planet of loss and stoppages.

And there's the explosive Uranus-Pluto near-conjunction (exact in 1965--1966 in the range of 16--18 Virgo which includes the critical-crisis degree of 17 Virgo) in the secretive 12th house, but the reason I mention it today is its hit to US natal Neptune @22Vir25 which formed a midpoint picture:

Assassination Uranus-Pluto = US n Neptune: uncertainty; insecurity; peculiar nervousness when excited (Tyl.)

Penned on the chart is a transiting midpoint picture which seems apt for any assassination--Neptune-MC = Pluto (wealthy Mr. Underworld, the assassination orderer): criminal offenses.

Dr. King's first natal planet to rise in the chart is his 8th house Saturn @25Sag21; his opposing 2nd house Mars @21Gem53 Rx conjoins America's natal Mars (July 4, 1776 5:10 pm LMT Philadelphia) which supports the idea that dealing with his natural authority (Saturn) and his Civil Rights activism was top of the assassins' menu. And I suspect that FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover didn't approve of Dr. King or of his motivation for his progressive activities (Mars and Mars.)

Chart-ruler Venus rules Dr. King's natal Ascendant, too (13Tau48 with NN 28Tau38 in 1st house) and vengeful Venus makes three applying Ptolemaic (major) aspects in the assassination horoscope:

1. Venus trine Neptune (0A57) indicating potentials for the expression of charades by masters of disguise, spiritual activities, charitable events, glamorous images, and/or illusions of all kinds.

2. Venus inconjunct Jupiter (1A04) signifies those who have over-expectations of others (like, trusting the wrong person or being 'sold out'?) and victimization in relationships. And since both Venus and Jupiter are money planets, financial problems or inconsistencies are possibly being described here.

3. Venus opposite Uranus (1A12) shows separation issues in relationships, possible extravagance and/or erratic behavior with finances, prejudice in the environment (Ya think?), and values clashing against those of a different background and/or generation.

The one-degree of application relates to one hour--he was pronounced dead about an hour later at 7:05 pm.

Also rising is the Jupiter-Neptune midpoint = ASC: speculation; sharing great hopes with others (Ebertin); an emotionally rationalized agenda (for Dr. King, or for the enemies who had him killed.)

Additionally, two midpoint pictures affect the Moon (the public; King's physical body) so let's add their potentials: Saturn-Pluto = Moon: renunciation; feelings trampled in relationship; giving up giving; frigid emotions; the tragic destiny of a woman. Plus, Sun-Pluto = Moon: attempts to project power and persuasion; brutal suppression of feelings (Tyl; Ebertin.)

Sun in Mars-Ruled Aries, Moon Exalted in Cancer

Since my blogging time is brief these days, let's close with some info on the King assassination's steamy Fire-Water blend of Sun Aries-Moon Cancer which were of influence on that day:

Volatile, clannish, devoted, with a mix of independent-dependent, this combo of energies denotes a daring adventurer who can say the right thing at the right time ('apples of gold in pictures of silver'?) Creative and inspirational, Aries-Cancer indicates a charismatic leader who easily catches the imagination of audiences with a dramatic flair.

There is, however, a moodiness that can undermine projects and an oversensitivity that leads to emotional defensiveness; motivating people is a talent and makes space for expressions of convictions about 'what is good for humanity'.

"Images for Integration: The Salvation Army...A lightening storm at sea gives way to a peaceful, radiant dawn...A child in a fit of petulant fury runs away from home." (Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Charles & Suzi Harvey.)


Chart Note: Around the horoscope you may spy Dr. King's natal planets penned in--that's his natal Pluto (power, manipulation, wealth, transformation, death) near the top (Goal Point = MC) of the chart along with America's natal Sun (the president), Jupiter, and Venus in self-protective Cancer; transiting Moon conjoins US n Venus; Dr. King's natal Sun @25Cap08, is in the 4th house of Endings, and conjoins US natal Pluto @27Cap33 Rx, planet of assassination; two Stars of Egypt, Sirius (the mundane becoming sacred) and Canopus (the great navigator and pathfinder) are also on display at MC.

Now I've never believed the FBI surveillance reports about Dr. King's extracurricular romances though it may be true, for here we find glamorous Lilith at IC and preaching Jupiter Rx in Leo, the sign of romance. Be that as it may, it's obvious that the leadership plans of Dr. King, RFK, and others of their era were not on America's future path intended by the powers behind the throne, and if they'd been allowed to live and lead, things would probably be very different in our nation now.

43 years ago: MLK Jr Assassination Horoscope Apr 4, 1968

To mark the 43rd anniversary today of the powers-behind-the-throne assassination of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr, here's a handy link to last year's remembrance which contains an image of the assassination chart of April 4, 1968.

Do you know the US government has never actually held a fully informed investigation of the politically motivated crime? Perhaps someone knew the culprits' names already.

If you're unfamiliar with or don't remember Dr. King's brilliant Beyond Vietnam speech delivered in New York exactly one year before his murder, it is highly recommended by this blogger.

In the speech, it's sad how current King's 1968 themes are for America circa 2011 and his prophetic words have unfortunately come to pass as the death-dealing US war machine rolls on under President Barack Obama's guiding hand which so recently sank America into the mire and misery of a third war.

Don't know about you, but I think the elite's perpetual war economy is working only for the war profiteers who engineer them and for the mercenaries and contractors they hire to do the dirty work.


Let's Not Fool Ourselves

To paraphrase Thom Hartmann, "There's no such thing as a safe level of radiation." But as part of a plan to kill off the weak, elderly, and infirm (and permanently scar the DNA of future generations), radiation is a very useful tool for a power elite so eager to march us into 2012. Mr. Hartmann has correctly called the massive amounts of radiation leaking into the sea around Japan, "ecocide."

And I'm still waiting to read the names of the earthquake-defying scoundrels who designed and built Japan's nuclear power plant on top of two fault lines. Wonder who first said, "I know - let's build them here!

SCADs: 9/11, Iran-Contra, Watergate, MLK assassination, etc

SCADs are 'State Crimes Against Democracy' and tend to be called 'conspiracy theories' by those in power who wish their backdoor dealings and collaborations to remain secret along with their culpability.

9/11, Iran-Contra, Watergate, various assassinations...the list of SCADs and suspected SCADs gets longer all the time and goes back to LBJ's and McNamara's Vietnam and before.

And you know what they say when you have thorny problems to root out: you must first identify demons in order to fight and vanquish them.

Most Americans in same boat floating on Jupiter/Neptune

"We may have all come on different ships, but we're in the same boat now."

Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Yes, I put 'most' Americans in the post title due to the top one-percenters who were never in the boat in the first place; in fact, the power elite consider themselves above the common boat and floating on that yacht you spy in the distance...

Here's a previous post concerning April 4, 1968 and the assassination of Dr. King. If you click to enlarge the chart for that day on a Memphis balcony, you see rising the midpoint of Jupiter/Neptune, a pair whose Great Conjunctions have occurred all through 2009 (culminating in their third and last conjunction on December 21, conj US natal Moon, the people.)

This reluctant astrologer has scolded the pair's demonstrable speculation/inflationary money/grand schemes/instability/wastefulness vibes all year as our financial system and health care debate for reforms have ground on.

Yet in the assassination chart of Dr. King, is that all there is to Jupiter/Neptune who may also represent a spiritual (Neptune) teacher and preacher (Jupiter)?

Perhaps Jupiter/Neptune's connection to religious fervor and expansion of spirituality was a theme on the horizon as Dr. King's popularity and leadership were being felt by the masses (Neptune) toward expansion (Jupiter) of anti-Vietnam war protests joining with Civil Rights protests to more strongly make the people's voice heard in Washington where control of 'the helm' is so jealously guarded against the people's of-by-for myth, gossip that was started by the founding fathers.

Politicians wouldn't want our of-by-for functions taking over the ship's course for then their secret lack of power without us would be fully revealed.

In part, *Michael Munkasey gives the Jupiter/Neptune combo as 'visions of how to effect totally different directions to life, generosity with the attention disadvantaged people receive (city garbage workers - jc), and studies concerning drugs, alcohol, or rehabilitation. These motifs are also concerned with how dreams influence society.'

As you know, Dr. King had a dream.

And as you may know, several of the older families in the US - still in leadership positions - are known for making their fortunes through drug smuggling and
, also a major cash cow for the CIA. This includes the period of 'helming' under Reagan and Bush (though Reagan idolaters conveniently forget.)

Yes, someone at America's helm in 1968 felt threatened enough to take divisive and subversive actions which were publicly demonstrated in Memphis on yet another dark day in our nation...and it was mourning in America once again.
