The “Candelabra of the Andes” (or: Viracochas`s Trident) is a prehistoric geoglyph near Paracas in Peru in the style of the famous Nazca-Lines. It is dated around 200 BCE. The geoglyph is 181 m tall and can be seen from 12 miles at sea which means that the geoglyph has been created for the orientation of passing by ships. It most likely represents the trident, a lightning rod of the creator deity Viracocha.


Astrogeographic position: one coordinate is located in the mental fire sign Sagittarius. Sagittarius is usually described to hold a bow and an arrow. It is the only one among the twelve signs of the zodiac that holds a weapon. Sagittarius is therefore to be considered as the indicator for Viracocha here. In astrology the trident could be interpreted to represent the weapon of the creator god Jupiter in it`s function as the classical astrological ruler of the sign of Pisces and of the realms of Poseidon and Neptune.

The 2nd coordinate of the site is located in the earth sign Virgo which would rather indicate that the “candelabra” represents a tree of life here than a weapon. Virgo is also the sign of harbours and of dry land. The constellation is valid for morphogenetic field level 3 which describes how the site is embedded in the surrounding area.
