Disneyland Opens (July 17, 1955)
This was a dream that Walt Disney had for years. And for those of us who were alive at the time, this became our dream, too.
On this day in 1955: Disneyland opens in Anaheim, California.
Meet Walt Disney
This is considered an excellent timing, based on a birth certificate. I won’t argue with that. Walt Disney was a complicated man: everyone said so.
Mercury Inconjunct Midheaven
It is very important that you develop your mind and your powers of thought, so that you can use them to attain whatever objectives you set for yourself. However, before you can accomplish this, you may have to solve certain problems. You may feel that there is a tension between your natural spontaneous views and what is taught by your parents and other adults. Even though their teachings seem perfectly reasonable, you want to think matters through for yourself. But while you are young, you may not be able to accept your own ideas as valid if they contradict what you have been taught. Yet you cannot simply suppress your own ways of thinking. If you try, you will create tension and probably create a gap between what you are trying to do and what you say. When you are older you may express this tension by making indiscreet remarks that totally get in the way of your objectives.
Venus Inconjunct Neptune
This aspect means that your attitudes about love and affection are very idealistic, as will become clearer later in life. Also it can be a sign of creative artistic ability if there are other indications of creativity in your chart. And, of course, you must begin the appropriate training while you are young.
Jupiter Inconjunct Pluto
You have a great deal of creative power, and the major challenge of your life will be learning how to handle it. First of all, you must realize that you will get the most out of life if you direct your energies toward helping the people around you and those you love. You will want to change many conditions in the world, which is fine as long as your reasons are not purely selfish ones.
You may have a natural talent for dominating others, but don’t fall in love with this talent and be motivated by it. You can be effective at influencing people only if you use your power to help others and yourself achieve desirable goals together. You must be an agent for betterment at all times, and even so you must listen to others’ ideas about betterment to be sure that you aren’t just seeking power in a more roundabout manner.
The Opening Day wasn’t Intended for the Public
Originally, I set this opening for 12 noon, local time, but then looked at the image above and realized that it may have been 1 pm instead. The Neptune conjunct Libra Ascendant seems to be appropriate.
Counterfeiting of the first day tickets was probably not the best start for this enterprise, but it is what it is. Only seeing the combined charts can we understand how it was for Disney.
The ‘event’ Ascendant is very close to Disney’s 2nd House cusp. This is his ‘money-maker’. And check out the ‘event’ South Node is conjunct Disney’s Midheaven. Has he done this before? Hmm.
