The enwalled village of St. Catherine`s Monastery also called  “Sacred Monastery of the God-Trodden Mount Sinai” is located at the mouth of a canyon at the foot of Mount Sinai (2285 m) at 1548 m altitude.

The monastery was built by order of Emperor Justinian I (reigned 527-565), enclosing the Chapel of the Burning Bush (also known as “Saint Helen’s Chapel”) ordered to be built by Empress Consort Helena, mother of Constantine the Great, at the site where Moses is supposed to have seen the burning bush

Astrogeographic position for morphogenetic field level 3 which describes the atmosphere, energetical situation and topics of the site of the whole of the  enwalled village: the monastery lies in the combination of earth sign Taurus with air sign Aquarius.

Solid fixed, materialistic earth sign Taurus the sign of the earth, agriculture, grounding, growing roots, possession of land, food and market places meets with creative, innovative, spiritual air sign Aquarius the sign of the sky, heaven, paradise, self-finding, alternative culture, communism, fundamental changes, leaving the past behind and the quest for reconnection with the spiritual plane. This raises the image of the motif of a place where literally heaven and earth meet.

For the monks, who came to live here during the last 1500 years this constellation stands for a fundamental change in their lives. Taurus indicates a place of stability, grounding, working for food supply, agriculture and food production in general. Aquarius represents the remote and unique location of the site including the issues of self-discovery, self-liberation and spiritual quest. In combination with Taurus Aquarius emphasizes the ideal of a practical approach to establishing an alternative society or spiritual community.
