Canary Island eruption – rumbling on

The volcanic eruption on La Palma of the Canary Islands shows no sign of subsiding with further “intense” activity from a “much more aggressive” Cumbre Vieja volcano, opening up two new fissures, sending molten rock toward the sea. Hundreds of properties have been destroyed since September 19th and thousands had to flee their homes. Scientists estimate it has so far emitted 80m cubic metres of molten rock and a new area of solidified lava extends over more than 20ha (50 acres).

  The previous Lunar Eclipse in late May located to the Canaries has disruptive Uranus on the Midheaven, which makes sense of such an event, square Saturn on the Descendant; with the brutally destructive Pluto opposition Mars in place as well.

   There are two possible dates for the Canary Islands though they should be treated with caution – 4 September 1479 and 12 January 1503, both JC.

  The 1503 chart has the Solar Arc Jupiter opposition Pluto squaring the Sun now – which would describe a mega-powerful event.  And on a previous eruption, 24 June 1949, the Solar Arc Sun was square the Neptune – Neptune often being found around natural disasters which leave confusion in their wake.

  The 1479 chart was more precise about the 1949 eruption having tr Neptune square the Solar Arc Pluto. At the moment – or at least this year – tr Pluto is trine the Solar Arc Uranus Neptune.

  The two classic volcano/earthquake signatures are Pluto Neptune and Uranus Neptune.

  1. Hi Marjorie,

    I just discovered this post. Had I known you written about the Cumbre Vieja Volcano eruption back in October, I would’ve commented sooner.

    My late paternal grandmother was born and raised in the Canary Islands (she was from Tenerife) and she left (along with my late paternal grandfather who was born and raised in Malaga, Andalusia, Spain) in the late 1930s due to the Spanish Civil War.

    My grandmother always talked about how the islanders (including herself) were used to the constant threat of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions – it came with the territory. However, despite all of this, it’s still distressing to see volcanic ash and lava covering many trees and buildings in La Palma.

    I do hope all of this subsides soon.
