Palm Jumeira in Dubai is an artificial archipelago that stretches out as far as 5 km into the ocean. Construction of the Palm Jumeirah island began in June 2001 and the developers announced handover of the first residential units in 2006. By the end of 2009, 28 hotels were opened on the Crescent.

Astrogeographisc position of Palm Jumeirah for morphogenetic field level 2 which describes the energetical topics of the whole of the peninsula project and how it is embedded in Dubai City:  one coordinate lies in creative, innovative, holistic, futuristic, spiritual air sign Aquarius sign of the sky, heaven, paradise, abstraction, inspiration, inventions, innovations, self-finding, reconnection with the fuller potentials of humans and an indicator for the long an narrow stem and the shape of palm trees in general. Aquarius relates to the creation of an artificial island as an experiment dedicated at putting an ideal, innovative concept into reality. Long and narrow peninsulas are highly typical for Aquarius. Typical examples here are: Cape of Good HopeSaint Michaels Mount, Gibraltar (Aquarius-Taurus)Sidney Opera House (Aquarius-Aries), Península de La Magdalena (Aquarius-Sagittarius).

The 2nd resonance coordinate is located in dynamic male fire sign Aries sign of action, speed, mobilization, warfare, fighting.

The combination of Aquarius as indicator of new developments and ideas, changes, revolutions, with fire sign Aries stands for the urge for acting out and putting impulses into practice. It is known also as the sign combination of mutations.

There is a direct relation of the shape of palm trees with the sign of Aquarius in the way these trees have long and narrow trunks without branches and transport all their energies to the top of their bodies as if to concentrate on their highest aspect, potential, chakra and the connection with the sky (compare my blog about the B of the Bang statue).

The Atlantis Hotel on the tip of the peninsula

The Atlantis Hotel is located right at the top of the Palm Jumeirah island. so that the opening gate in the middle falls right on the divide between Sagittarius, (north) and  Capricorn (south) and the coordinade for the astrogeographical longitude in Libra  photo:  Atlantis The Palm, ccbysa4.0

Astrogeographic position the Atlantis Hotel for morphogenetic field level 3 which describes the atmosphere, energetical topics and the way the site is embedded in the surrounding area: Hotel Atlantis occupies the central position on the top of the palm tree. The gate in the middle of the hotel is located eight on the cardinal divide of the winter solstice at 0° Capricorn in such a way that the north half of the building is in Sagittarius and the south half in Capricorn. This cardinal degree marks the divide between two spheres so indicating the position of  a checkpoint at the gate to another world! The position of the gate is so exact here that it reminds of the precision site of the feng-shui architecture in Chinese and Japanese temples where the positions are determined through elaborate methods of geomancy and Feng Shui (compare: Fushima Inari Shrine in Kyoto). Spectacular examples of sculptures in the guardian position on the cardinal divide of the winter solstice are: Heaven`s Gate on the point of the winter solsticeThe Guardian Fountains on Place de la ConcordeGolden Gate Bridge and the entrance into Capricorn on its south endFushima-Inari-Taisha and the gate at 0° Capricorn

The entrance to the sacred passage at the Kyoto Fushima lies at 0° Capricorn and in Libra. While walking through the passage visitors simulate the passing of gates in order to sharpen their awarness for self-control    Inari Shrine  photo: Paul Vlaar license: ccbysa3.0

The precision of the location of the Hotel at the top and entrance to the Palm Jumeirah shows an intense strife for harmony. It may be concluded that quite some efforts have been made to find one at least theoretically auspicious position for the top of the island. Even more so because the measuring had to be made right into the open sea without any features of landscape to relate to.

The astrogeographical longitude coordinate lies in the last decade of service-orientated air sign Libra the sign of openness, love, angels, relationship, harmony, balance, beauty, symmetry, decoration, doors, gate, points of entry openings in buildings and rocks.

The chart for the opening ceremony of Palm Jumeirah

Astrological chart for the inauguration of the whole of the Palm Jumeirah Palm Island with a huge firework on 20 November 2008 calculated for 20:00

The opening ceremony of the peninsula was held on November, 20 2008 under an exact opposition of Saturn th planet of stability at 20°Virgo the sign of reason, careful planning and preparation to Uranus the astrological resonator of changes at 19°Pisces the sign of the ocean. This opposition directly points at the natural instability of the artificial island making the project seem like an experiment created for the exploration and experience of new technologies, inventions and concepts rather than the long-term lastingness, stability and profitability of the project.

During the inauguration of Palm Jumeirah the Moon at 8° Virgo was exactly conjunct the position during the inauguration of Burj Khalifa which was held 14 months later explaining both projects as part of
