Today’s Oracle takes us to the Taurus weekly for March 26, 1999.
One of the world’s most prominent Taurans is a journalist and political prisoner on Pennsylvania’s death row named Mumia Abu-Jamal (born April 24). For some people, Jamal is seen as a “controversial” figure because he was convicted of killing a cop (in a ridiculous sham trial), but to me, he embodies a karmic struggle of the first magnitude for our culture: are blacks and whites treated equally? Is our justice system remotely fair? Is it sane to murder people as punishment for alleged (or proven) murder? In my mind, it makes sense that a Taurus would be the one to take this struggle on his shoulders, but I’m not sure why. Novelist Alice Walker called Jamal, “A rare and courageous voice speaking from a place we fear to know.” Till your fast-approaching birthday, I suggest you consider to what extent the same is true for you.
The Saturn-Pluto conjunction is upon us: it is exact on Jan. 12. While this event will happen two or three times in the lives of most people, this particular event is a moment of convergence and reckoning for the world and for us as individuals.
