Astrogeographical resonance coordinates for morphogenetic field level 3 (surrounding area) which describes the atmosphere and energetical topics of the surrounding area where the statue was built: the area around the construction site is situated in the combination of the two water signs Cancer and Scorpio. This combination of these two signs can be understood as describing important aspects of the Hindu deity Lord Shiva.
Indian astrologers often relate Shiva to the sign of Scorpio. There are a number of explanations why Shiva would resonate with this sign. First of all because it was Shiva who during the “Churning of the milk ocean” (= the milky way/galaxy) drank away all the poison which caused his head and neck to turn blue. Secondly because of his neglection of the caste system, social habits and expectations that Shiva stands for. This aspect makes Shiva a representative of the aspect of an outlaw and rebel. Thirdly because of his rulership over the world of demons. Scorpio through its relation with Aries would define the male aspect of the Shiva Lingam as one of Shiva`s main symbols. The Kailashnath Shiva statue is one of many examples for astrogeographic constellations, where Scorpio appears as the sign of the stonemasonry and blacksmith trades together with large sculptures.

The presence of emotional water sign Cancer the sign of rivers, springs, fertility, conception, the uterus, pregnancy, gender, emotional individuality & authenticity in addition to Scorpio is highly symptomatic for sites related to Shiva . From my experience in astrogeographical field study it can be definitely concluded that Cancer has the strongest astrological resonance with important sites related to Shiva. Shiva is often described through the polarity with the Sun god Vishnu who represents light. Therefore the Moon as the ruling planet of Cancer is the first planetary analogy of the spiritual qualities of Shiva. This explains why he is depicted with a crescent Moon on his head. According to my calculations Shiva´s home on Mount Kailash is located in Cancer too.
From the pile of hair on the crown chakra of Shiva`s head the source of the river Ganges flows down into the Nplains od North India. This is important here because Cancer is the astrological sign of water springs. The Baghirati source of river Ganges at Gaumukh, the confluence of the main tributaries at Devprayag and the holiest Hindu city Varanasi are located in the combination of Cancer with Scorpio.
