Today’s Oracle takes us to the Taurus weekly for March 26, 1999.
One of the world’s most prominent Taureans 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.” I suggest you consider to what extent the same is true for you.
