Frances Clynes – Neptune and the New Frontier

In the myths, Poseidon, although god of the sea, is hungry for land. When Neptune was discovered in 1846 it was exactly conjunct Saturn at 25˚Aquarius and conjunct the Moon in the US chart (Sibley). In the US, this was the beginning of the great Western migration as people sought a new home. In 1969, Neptune squared the US Moon and Poseidon once more claimed land when the American flag was raised on the Moon. This talk will look at the relationship between Neptune and the US chart up to the present day.
