#6. Using Star-based Astrology for a Marriage or a Death

So far we’ve seen the Star Report and Summary used to describe the Unconscious essence of Natal Planets in a person’s life chart.  In addition the Stars can clarify an event. 

At 6:01 pm on 4/4/68 in Memphis at the Lorraine Motel Dr. Martin Luther King was murdered.  It has been common knowledge among Astrological Star-watchers for thousands of years that the Star ALGOL is the Most evil star in heavens” (V.E. Robson).  So it comes as no surprise that ALGOL would be present as Dr. King was martyred.   

In fact it was Rising (coming over the eastern horizon) for the event’s Sun in the 9th House of acting for spiritual purposes at a distance from his home.  And ALGOL was at the Beginnings of this ominous event for him also Rising at this moment when the Moon was at the Nadir (known in Astrology as corresponding with the ending of one’s life)! 

The immediate meaning for his Moon is in Brady’s program, “Plagued by personal tragedies, one’s own, or other people’s.”  The meaning for the Sun with ALGOL is “Passion that can inspire or destroy.” Now obviously an astrologer (unless acting on psychic information) couldn’t have known to draw a chart for 6:01 pm for the future of that upcoming day in order to warn Dr. King.  I’m just giving an example of the intricacies of Star-based work; and that’s before tying it closely to the Planets! 

However, it could be used to understand details of a myriad of events in the past, or analyze the excellence of a moment in the future—like a marriage, a proposed merger, an operation, a presentation, etc. 

Notice that this could help a Dialogue to grasp the nature of the Unconscious Collective that required the death of this great spiritual man.
