Leo and Scorpio – the Christo Redentor Statue in Rio
The statue of Christ the Redeemer (Christo Redentor) statue was constructed on a mountain named Corvocado overviewing the city of Rio de Janeiro. The 30 m tall sculpture built of reinforced concrete rests on an 8 meter pedestal witch gives room to a chapel for 150 people. Its head and hands were designed and made by the French sculptor Paul Landowski in his studio near Paris.
Astrogeographic position of the Christ the redeemer statue for morphogenetic field level 3 which describes the atmosphere and energetical topics of the sculpture itself: the construction site has one coordinate in highly energetical. magnetic, self-centered, royal fire sign Leo the sign of the sun, light, self-esteem and most important astrological resonator of french culture. The 2nd coordinate lies in highly alert, defensive water sign Scorpio the sign of sculpting, imaging, visualization, steel, metalworking, the underworld, giants and indicator for the large colossal shape of the statue. The same constellation in which the Statue of Liberty in New York was constructed. In astrological typology Leo as well as Scorpio are defined as “fixed” signs, which means that they stands for relative durability and physical largeness. As in the case of Mount Rushmore Memorial the subjectivistic fire sign Leo may be an explanation for the motivation for such an ambitious and grand scale type object of art. The presence of the sign of Leo may even be seen as a condition for the sculptured image to gain a certain liveliness, and be – at least to some extent – convincing to an observer.
The statue of Christo Redentor is one of numerous examples for astrogeographical constellations where Scorpio appears as the sign of the stonemasonry and blacksmith trades together with large or even colossus-like sculptures.
The Christo Redentor statue was unveiled on October 12, 1931 when the astrogeographical positions of the construction site were occupied by the Moon and Mars in Scorpio and Jupiter in Leo.
A lightning stroke the famous Christo Redentor Statue in Rio de Janeiro damaging its right thumb on January, 16, 2014.
The statue is located at about 3° of the water sign Scorpio and 2 ° of the fire sign Leo. I calculated the astrological chart for 20:00 p.m. as I couldn`t find out the exact time.
Planets in transit of the statue`s position:
The North Node of the Moon was in exact transit of Christo Redentor`s position at 3° Scorpio and in square to the position at 2° Leo.
What does it mean:
Mars the astrological indicator for thumbs was challenged by an intense square with Venus the planet of physical and sexual attraction. This suggests that the event is to be seen as a manifestation of last week`s intense tension between the male and female elements.
The meaning of the transit of the Moon`s North Node over Christo Redentor`s position indicates that the tension between the male and female aspects was to be released through the expressing or at least taking into consideration of personal, subjective, individualistic, authentical emotions.
