Human Rights Landmark Approaching

Human Rights Landmark Approaching

A major landmark in the struggle for human rights is approaching.

Early in the next decade, Pluto will not only trine its position at the time Abraham Lincoln issued the first Emancipation Proclamation, freeing Confederate slaves, but Pluto will also trine its position at the time of Martin Luther King's I Have a Dream speech. Both of these events are rightly and universally regarded as historic landmarks in the struggle for human rights.

Human Rights and Pluto's Trine

When Martin Luther Kind made his historic speech in 1963, Pluto was trining its position at the time of the first Emancipation Proclamation.

Now, we are talking about a grand trine. We are looking at a turning point greater than those marked by the Emancipation Proclamation and the I Have a Dream speech combined: the culmination of centuries of effort to establish human rights.

Most likely, during this trine, the principle of human rights will be reasserted with a breadth, a depth, a decisiveness and a firmness that few expected to see in their lifetimes.

The exploitation of disenfranchised groups will end, or diminish dramatically. Equal protection under the law and equal opportunity will become a reality for many more people.

While these observations relate most directly to US history, these upcoming events will doubtless be echoed by events around the globe.

Astrological and Historical Details

On September 22, 1862, Abraham Lincoln issued the first Emancipation Proclamation. This executive order freed the slaves in the Confederate States. Though limited in scope, this act was the first in a series that led to the abolition of slavery in the United States.

Pluto was at 11 degrees, 6 minutes Taurus at the time of the first Emancipation Proclamation.

On August 28, 1963, Martin Luther King gave his famous I Have a Dream speech from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC. This speech is universally regarded as a milestone and a defining moment in the modern struggle for human rights.

Pluto was at 11 degrees, 37 minutes Virgo, making an all but exact trine to its position at the time of the Lincoln's first Emancipation Proclamation.

A Grand Trine Approaching

From the beginning of 2013 thru the end of 2014, for a period of two years, Pluto will be at or very close to 11 degrees Capricorn. A grand trine between transiting Pluto and its location at the time OF these two great milestones in the struggle for human rights will be in effect for about two years.

Without extensive analysis I can’t say when this grand trine is likely to produce its most dramatic, memorable effects. Perhaps that will only be possible in retrospect.

But rest assured that history making progress in the struggle for human rights is in the offing.

The approach of this grand trine strongly suggests that the struggles for social, political and economic rights that we presently see will continue and intensify and soon result in events that will morally transform global civilization.

It also demonstrates that Pluto’s effects in the world are not simply political and economic, but moral and spiritual.
