Rev. King told a number of his entourage that he knew he was being targeted and he was likely to be murdered.

Karakamsha 12-Mithunaya * visionary

generates a narrative which includes all varieties of understanding, including intuitive communications, prayer, fantasies and disembodied imagery.

In addition to the dissolving power of lagnesha Chandra-8 to somewhat lessen the material suffering of conditions of death (King was shot and died very quickly) he was also likely at peace with Chandra's intuitive prescient knowledge of his impending murder.
