Mount St. Helens Erupts (May 18, 1980 @ 7:32 am PDT)
There are some memories that you never forget. This one happened 40 years ago.
We were living in Vancouver, BC at the time. At about 7:30 that Sunday morning we all were awakened by a series of booms. No one knew what had happened. Until we saw the news later in the day. An earthquake under Mount St. Helens had precipitated a volcano.
Before we knew it, everything was covered with a layer of ash.
I had always intended to look at the ‘event’ chart for this volcano. Why? To see what may have astrologically caused it. These days I use inconjuncts as pointers to any hidden ‘hands’. And there is one involving Neptune and the Moon, which we have seen before.
Moon Inconjunct Neptune
This aspect indicates that you are very sensitive and that you pick up feelings from the people around you very easily. The danger is that some of these feelings will be difficult to cope with: they may make you afraid of the world and reluctant to go out into it, as you must do when you are older.As a result, you prefer to be alone with your thoughts and let your fancies wander wherever they want to go. When you are older, this may help you use your imagination very creatively, but it won’t help you work out your everyday problems. You must learn that you are worth as much as anyone else, for you may tend to withdraw when someone acts aggressive[ly]. But the adults who help you learn these lessons must be gentle and understanding. Otherwise you will shrink back into yourself. Above all, you must not be made to feel incompetent or inadequate, or you will think of yourself as a loser all your life.
You may be asking yourself: what has this got to do with a volcano? Well, my first answer would be “Nothing…” The important point is what it may have done to humanity, especially young children, such as my youngest daughter, who would have been 10 weeks old when this event happened. The secondary thing is: could this be proof that the ancient gods are related to the planets?
Neptune pertains to feeling, desire, emotion, imagination, aesthetics, intuition, the psychic faculties or extra-sensory perceptions. When thwarted it becomes psycho-neurotic, theatric, and susceptible to flattery, the power of suggestion, and appearances. On the merest whim it will break a bargain or go back on its word. It exhibits a high regard for uniformity yet often succeeds in enterprises that require more than the average measure of mental effort. Neptune is deemed a higher octave of Venus.
Neptune is also considered the modern ruler of Pisces.
The chart, shown above, seems to hinge on the Neptune energy.
