Martin Luther King Jr.

Martin Luther King Jr.

As a fellow Capricorn, I was curious to see where Martin Luther King Jr.’s moon was in his natal chart.  Capricorn individuals are known as the father-figures of the zodiac, and King exemplified that role by essentially telling the world what was good for them (something I’ve been known to do on occasion).

King’s moon, of course, was in dreamy Pisces.  His “I Have a Dream” speech defined the civil rights era.  I often characterize the Pisces influence as being dithering and wishy-washy, but it can also be incredibly idealistic and visionary.  King’s sun also sat in the idealistic ninth house, close to his natal Mercury in Aquarius which was about a degree away from his midheaven.

I suppose that King’s Pisces moon softened his idealistic rhetoric.  Capricorns are prone to patronizing others with their lectures, whereas King made his mark by sharing his idealized dream with the world.
