Martin Luther King, Jr.
January 15, 1929 – April 4, 1968
Both MLK and RFK knew that it wasn’t enough to know the changes to be made, or the right time to initiate reform, but even more importantly, that the subtle archetypes must be with you - that is the grace of God, animating the collective, is necessary in order to achieve your goals.
A courageous new Negro
Montgomery marked the first flash of organized, sustained, mass action and nonviolent revolt against the Southern way of life. In Montgomery, there emerged courageous and collective challenge to and protest against the American order, which promised so much for all, while perpetuating indignities and brutalities on the oppressed minority.
Montgomery marked the psychological turning point for the American Negro in his struggle against segregation. The revolution birthed in Montgomery was unlike the isolated, futile, and violent slave revolts. It was also unlike the many sporadic incidents of revolt against segregation by individuals, resisting in their own way the forces of oppression pinning them down.. In Montgomery, all across the board, at one and the same time, the rank and file rose up and revolted, by refusing to ride the buses.
By walking instead, and by brilliant use of car pools and improvising, the boycotters sustained their revolt all the way to victory.
Also, Montgomery contributed a new weapon to the Negro revolution. This was the social tool of nonviolent resistance. It was a weapon first applied on the American scene and in a collective way in Montgomery. In that city too, it was honed well for future use. It was effective in that it had a way of disarming the opponent. It exposed his moral defenses. It weakened his morale, and at the same time it worked on his conscience. It also provided a method for Negroes to struggle to secure moral ends through moral means. Thus, it provided a creative force through which men could channel their discontent.
Ultimately, victory in Montgomery came with the United States Supreme Court’s decision; however, in the real sense, the victory had already come to the boycotters, who had proven to themselves, the community, and the world that Negroes could join in concert and sustain collective action against segregation, carrying it through until the desired objective was reached. In conclusion, then, Montgomery gave forth, for all the world to see, a courageous new Negro. He emerged, etched in sharpest relief, a person whom whites had to confront and even grudgingly respect, and one whom Negroes admired and, then, emulated. He had thrust off his stagnant passivity and deadening complacency, and emerged with a new sense of dignity and destiny. The Montgomery Negro had acquired a new sense of somebodiness and self-respect, and had a new determination to achieve freedom and human dignity no matter what the cost.

Naturally the question will be asked: How is man to find his Individual Star? The answer is simply stated, and is not difficult to understand by those who desire understanding. We must begin acting from within instead of ever following impulses from without, namely those produced by our physical senses and gross physical body.
We can say as a first approximation that the milieu whose rich and mobile homogeneity has revealed itself all around us as a condition and a consequence of the most Christian attitudes (such as right intention and resignation) is formed by the divine omnipresence. The immensity of God is the essential attribute which allows us to seize him everywhere, within us and around us.
Teilhard de Chardin, The Divine Milieu
Martin Luther King, Jr. had Jupiter 1° Taurus 11' in his Twelfth House of the Martyr, Sacrifice, and Hanged Man [Trump XII], traditionally the home of global consciousness, the universal poet, and the oceans of the world. The Twelfth House is the natural home of Pisces, the two fishes, and their planet ruler Neptune. The Sun appeared high in the sky when King was born, with a well placed Pisces Moon nearby.
Although I did not see King in person, the placement of both his lights suggests a high texture aura field with several well developed envelopes: some of clarity, opacity, and the dynamic blue of devotion. The blue I refer to often has an edge of rose. Sometimes there is also
blue violet combined with silver.

Reverend Al Sharpton, President and Founder of National Action Network, today expressed concerns over recent actions by Walgreens, noting the retailer’s widely-reported decision to end its relationship with Express Scripts will likely result in increased prescription costs for “the elderly, union members, Medicaid patients, the working poor and families of color.”

Blueberry Pie Filling:
4 cups (570 grams) fresh blueberries
1/2 cup (100 grams) granulated white sugar
2 tablespoons (20 grams) cornstarch (corn flour)
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon lemon zest
Make the Blueberry Filling:
In a small bowl mix together the sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice and zest. Place the blueberries in a large bowl. Add the sugar mixture to the blueberries and gently toss to combine. Pour the mixture into the prepared pie shell. Then, in a small bowl, whisk together the egg yolk and cream. Lightly brush the rim of the pastry shell with the egg wash. Starting at the outside edge of the pie, place the cut out pastry stars in a circular pattern on top of the blueberries, making sure the tips of the stars are touching. Once the top of the pie is completely covered with the pastry stars, brush the entire surface with the egg wash, making sure that it does not pool. Place the assembled pie back in the refrigerator to chill for about 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C) and place the oven rack in the lower third of the oven. Remove the chilled pie from the fridge and place on a larger baking pan, lined with parchment paper, to catch any spills. Bake the pie for about 20 minutes and then reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C). Continue to bake the pie for about 35-45 minutes or until the crust is a deep golden brown color and the juices are bubbling and thick. If the edges of the pie are browning too much during baking, cover with a foil ring.
Place the baked pie on a wire rack to cool for several hours. Serve at room temperature with softly whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. Store any leftovers for 2 - 3 days at room temperature.
1 large egg yolk
1 tablespoon cream
Garnish: Softly whipped cream or vanilla ice cream

President Obama - Gifts of Service on MLK Day
After the march to Montgomery, there was a delay at the airport and several thousand demonstrators waited more than five hours, crowding together on the seats, the floors, and the stairways of the terminal building. As I stood with them and saw white and Negro, nuns and priests, housemaids and shop workers brimming with vitality and enjoying a rare comradeship, I knew I was seeing a microcosm of the mankind of the future in that moment of luminous and genuine brotherhood.

Taylor Branch uses Martin Luther King, Jr. as a lens for viewing the many factions of the Civil Rights movement: Parting the Waters: America in the King Years, 1954–63 (New York: Simon and Schuster, 1988); Pillar of Fire: America in the King Years, 1963–65 (New York: Simon and Schuster, 1998); At Canaan’s Edge: America in the King Years, 1965–68 (New York: Simon and Schuster, 2006).
The Prince of Disks
King has his Jupiter in the part of the heavens aligned with The Prince of Disks.
The Prince of Disks represents the airy part of Earth, indicating the florescence and fructification of that element. He rules from the 21st degree of Aries to the 20th degree of Taurus.
The figure of this Prince is meditative. He is the element of Earth become intelligible. Clothed in light armour, his helmet is crowened with the head of a bull; and his chariot is drawn by an ox, this animal being peculiarly sacred to the Element of Earth. In his left hand he holds his disk, which is an orb resembling a globe, marked with mathematical symbols as if to imply the planning involved in agriculture. In his right hand he bears an orbed scepter surmounted by a cross, a symbol of the Great Work accomplished; for it is his function to bring forth from the material of the element that vegetation which is the sustenance of the Spirit itself.
The character denoted by this card is that of great energy brought to bear upon the most solid of practical matters. He is energetic and enduring, a capable manager, a steadfast and preserving worker. He is competent, ingenious, thoughtful, cautious, trustworthy, imperturbable; he constantly seeks new uses for common things, and adapts his circumstances to his purposes in a slow, steady, well-thought out plan. (Trump I The Juggler, Magus, and Craftsman, is probably best allocated to MLK, however significant links should be noted with three other Major Arcana:
Trump IX The Hermit, Trump XII The Martyr, and Trump 0/22 The Fool/Wise Man.)
He is lacking almost entirely in emotion. He is somewhat insensitive, and may appear dull, but he is not; it so appears because he makes no effort to understand ideas which are beyond his scope... if ill aspects appear, both the quality and quantity of his characteristics may appear to have become somewhat crystallized or open to influences incongruent with the situation. The reaction of others to him will depend almost entirely upon their own temperaments.
…The description is even happier than that given by the Qabalah, although in every way congruous with it. Practical considerations are never absent.
King's star chart holds on to two intense power trines: Jupiter trine Neptune exact, and an unusual trine between both business planets, Jupiter trine Saturn orb +5°49'.
King's Saturn 25° Sagittarius 21', in his Eighth House of mystery, karma associated with initiation, surrender, 'the new man', and the partner's property, is trine Jupiter by house and degree, but not by element. Jupiter in Taurus [earth] refers to personal property including the clay vessel and temple, deposited in the Twelfth House [natural home of his Pisces Moon] of the dream, colour layers of the dream vehicle, landscapes of the astrosome [dream world], and spiritual treasure. Jupiter, the planet that most represents the philosophic or religious urge, in the home of the great dream and spiritual poem, may have added some degree of inspiration to King's "I Have A Dream" speech.
Astrologers consider the whole of the muscular system of the human body as under the influence of the planet Mars, the bones under Saturn, and the blood and cell-life under Jupiter; but it is also true that all the planets affect the muscles and the bones and the blood in a general sense. Truth and beauty may be and are, Jupiterian aspects, but there are also Martian and Saturnine types of truth and beauty.

King had several important challenges with the Sun square Jupiter orb +5°59'.
BEACON OF HOPE
"Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand signed the Emancipation Proclamation. This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of Negro slaves who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of captivity."
-Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., I Have A Dream..."
J.R.R. Tolkien wrote the movement of unifying akasha energy into the mountain ranges in Middle Earth, suggesting a series of links similar to those of Early America's underground railroad.
Tolkien designed the full beacon system, still operating in the War of the Ring, with back history no older than the settlement of the Rohirrim in Calenardhon about 500 years before. When lit, the beacons moved akasha, the power of the mountain, across the top of the entire mountain range - energy surging up along the silver cord, running the spine from Malkuth to Kether. The connection ensured reanimation of the ancient oath between Cirion and Eorl to aid each other should the fires summon either of them. It should be noted many names/words that describe the mountains, waterways, and beacons refer to check points or divisions in both time and space simultaneously.
The name Halifirien meant Holy Mountain, and the mountain was regarded with reverence by the Rohirrim; but according to their traditions at the time of the War of the Ring that was because it was on its summit that Eorl the Young met Cirion, Steward of Gondor; and there when they had looked forth over the land they fixed the bounds of the realm of Eorl, and Eorl swore to Cirion the Oath of Eorl—"the unbroken oath"—of perpetual friendship and alliance with Gondor. see the
comments of Christopher Tolkien on this point.
Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial -
dedication October 16, 2011, Washington, D.C.
Dreams surely are difficult, confusing, and not everything in them is brought to pass for mankind. For fleeting dreams have two gates: one is fashioned of horn and one of ivory. Those which pass through that one of sawn ivory are deceptive, bringing tidings which come to nought, but those which issue from the one of polished horn bring true results when a mortal sees them.
-Homer, The Iliad
I had felt for a long time, that if I was ever told to get up so a white
person could sit, that I would refuse to do so.
~Rosa Parks recalling her refusal to give up her seat on the bus to a white man in segregated Montgomery, Alabama. She was promptly arrested. [December 1, 1955]
"The Rosa Parks statue will be a fitting tribute to the American hero inside the most visible symbol of the America democracy," said Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr. (D-Ill.) during a ceremony honoring the late civil rights pioneer.
U.S. Senate Approves Legislation To Open Door for Rosa Parks Statue in U.S. Capitol
Friday, October 19, 2007
Washington, DC – The U.S. Senate has approved a bill to allow the Joint Committee on the Library and the Architect of the Capitol to move forward in obtaining a statue of Rosa Parks to be placed in the U.S. Capitol, Senators Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and John Kerry (D-Mass.) today announced.
Senator Feinstein is chairman of the Joint Committee on the Library. Senator Kerry sponsored the original bill to build the statue, which was signed into law in 2005.
"In 2005, Congress voted to preserve the legacy of Rosa Parks by authorizing a statue of her to be placed in the U.S. Capitol’s Statuary Hall," said Senator Feinstein, chairman of the Joint Committee on the Library. "A statue of Rosa Parks would be a fitting tribute to the struggle for equal rights for all Americans. But two years later, the statue has not been obtained. It’s time to remove the hurdles, and ensure that Rosa Parks is honored as Congress intended."
"Everyone who visits the Capitol should know the story of Rosa Parks, and her courageous stand for civil rights. After her death, we passed legislation to honor her with a statue because we wanted the world to know the place Rosa Parks holds in our hearts, and in our history," Senator Kerry said. "This final legislative step will remove the last remaining roadblock to seeing her statue ends up right where it belongs in Statuary Hall."
Congress voted in 2005 to obtain a statue of Rosa Parks to be placed in the U.S. Capitol’s National Statuary Hall. The law designated Congress’ Joint Committee on the Library to obtain the statue. However, it was later determined that the Joint Committee does not have the technical ability or resources to enter into contracts or pay for the statue.
For two years, this hurdle has prevented Congress from obtaining the statue. And the law authorizing the statue is set to expire on December 1, 2007.
The legislation approved yesterday by the Senate designates the Architect of the Capitol as the agent of the Joint Committee, and extend the deadline by two more years. This change provides an avenue for the statue to be obtained by allowing the Architect of the Capitol to distribute funds on behalf of the Joint Committee on the Library.
The bill is co-sponsored by Senators Bob Bennett (R-Utah), Richard Durbin (D-Ill.), Carl Levin (D-Mich.), Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.), and Christopher Dodd (D-Conn.). The original legislation was introduced in the Senate by Senator Kerry, and in the House by Representative Jesse Jackson (D-IL).

Jesse Jackson on the reading of American history and misinterpretation of American history
Dec. 26, 2013, 10:46 AM EST
On Monday, Rev. Jackson, head of the Rainbow PUSH Coalition, demanded a meeting within 72 hours over the claim
someone asserted in a GQ interview that African-Americans were perfectly happy before Civil Rights.
Rosa Parks helped launch the movement when she refused to give up her seat to a white passenger on Dec. 1, 1955. Click Rosa for the article in full.
"These statements uttered by [white male who lives in the American southland] are more offensive than the bus driver in Montgomery, Alabama, more than 59 years ago," Jackson said in a statement. "At least the bus driver, who ordered Rosa Parks to surrender her seat to a white person, was following state law. [This fellow's] statements were uttered freely and openly without cover of the law, within a context of what he seemed to believe was 'white privilege.'"
A&E did not respond to a request for comment Thursday on whether it would meet with Jackson. Jackson also wants GLAAD and executives from Cracker Barrel to attend the meeting. The restaurant chain initially decided to pull [tv series] merchandise, but reversed itself after the fans of the show rose to defend the self-taught grinder who seems to know how to walk and chew gum at the same time. What goes on in the back room when all doors and windows are closed is anybody's guess.
Rita Dove on the Power of Poetry
February 17, 2012
Bill Moyers interviews former U.S. Poet Laureate Rita Dove, who this very week received the National Medal of Arts from President Obama. Dove served two terms as Poet Laureate, the youngest and the first African American to be named to that prestigious position. Through an intimate conversation and select readings, Moyers and Dove explore American history, language, culture, and ideas. They also talk about the responsibility – and controversy – that comes with editing a prestigious anthology, as Dove was recently tasked for The Penguin Anthology of 20th Century American Poetry.

GlobalGrind.com CEO Russell Simmons tells Keith how Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy inspired him to help organize Occupy the Dream, a new offshoot of the Occupy Wall Street movement. Dr. King started the Poor People’s Campaign in November 1967 with the goal of confronting Congress about what he saw as its “hostility to the poor” while lobbying for an Economic Bill of Rights. Simmons decries a prison-industrial complex and states, “All of what promotes inequality — economic inequality — is the money in Washington.” Simmons argues for a constitutional amendment to stop the flow of money in politics, saying, “We want the politicians to work for us, not [the lobbyists].”--
Occupy the Dream: Russell Simmons on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s legacy in action - Countdown with
Occupying Wall Street started out as a small gathering of young students on September 17, 2011, but quickly turned into a worldwide movement.
It's simple. The chants of "We are the 99 percent" have been bellowing on Wall Street for over a month. The 99 percent refers to the difference in wealth between the top 1 percent and the other citizens of the United States.
Their grievances are straightforward, end social and economic inequality, corporate greed, and the power and influence of corporations, particularly from the financial service sector...

Martin Luther King, Jr., and his Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) spearheaded the nonviolent protest movement, and everyday Americans from all walks of life got on the freedom bus and helped form the core of the movement. Outside advocacy groups such as the NAACP, and black Members of Congress, also played an important role.
