Astrogeographical positions of the largest cities worldwide in 2014. Astrology and urban centzers: on the astrogeographical resonance degrees of the largest cities in 2014
The Astrogeographical positions of capitals: Rome, Washington, Ottawa, Moscow, Beijing, London, Paris, Madrid, Berlin, UNASUR, EU, Kiew, New Delhi, Kabul, Riyadh, Bagdad, Tehran, Pyongyang & Seoul, The Hague, lslamabad, Damascus, Jerusalem, Athens, Ankara, Brasilia, Canberra, Caracas, Mexico City, Tokyo, Wellington. United Nations, Vienna, Warsaw, Kairo
The table of the largest cities worldwide in 2014 and their astrogeographic positions is calculated for morphogenetic radius/field level 1 which describes the supraregional significance of the cities. Data source for data about the number of inhabitants, area and population density is from the english wikipedia article: “List of cities proper by population”.
Yesterday I published a short article on the list of the largest cities worldwide in the 1st century AD. Today I`m presenting a table of the astrogeographic positions of the largest urban agglomerations worldwide in 2014. For the start of a deeper astrological analysis of the data I`m recommending to take some time for comparison of the two.
The historical list provides some hints at the archetypal astrogeographic constellations for particular types of megacities which rare reflected by similar positions in the list for today.
The Delta Cities in between Aquarius and Pisces
First of all Alexandria and Shanghai two really outstanding examples for megacities in their time are both located in between air sign Aquarius sign of the water bearer and rainy season and the first degrees of water sign Pisces the sign of the sea. The sunken ancient cities of Canopus, Heracleion and Menouthis only a few km east of Alexandria are extremely typical for the position in Pisces which represents the home and territory of Poseidon or Neptune the god of the ocean whose home is underwater.
The part of the zodiac at the end of Aquarius and the start of Pisces is known for it`s role in floods and on a psychological, social and poolitical level for the quality of flooding rigid, outdated structures. Both places are important sea port towns located at the river deltas of two of the largest rivers on the planet: the river Nile the world`s longest river and Yangtze river as world`s number 3 by length. These delta areas are subject to the most intense floods every spring.
Virgo plus Scorpio – the “Athens Constellation”
Among the Top 30 of the largest megacities in 2014 Tokyo, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Dongguan are located in the most frequent combination of astrogeographic coordinates on the list which I call the “Athens Constellation”. It brings together self-protective emotional earth sign Virgo the sign of reason, health care, optimal use of ressources, harvesting, storing goods and strategic planning with the highly alert, defensive, mental water sign Scorpio the sign of fortresses, metal working and processing, sculpting, construction, industrial production, hierarchical structures, trade guilds and caste systems.
The ancient greek capital Athens is one of the most successful, influential and stable cities in human history. It`s role in the history of urban culture and for the development of the culture of citizenship, democracy, science, technology, philosophy and art is outstanding. Athens was the prototype for Rome and Alexandria. The combination of Athen`s coordinates` therefore has proved to be particularly useful for the functional aspects and organization needed for a metropolis. And this is also the focus which these two particular signs suggest: a focus on self-defense, industry and optimal use of ressources.
Leo the sign of the World Capital Cities and the role of Leo as the most frequent aspect for the Top 30 megacities in 2014
Fire sign Leo is the leading sign on the 2014 list with 11 cities in this astrogeographical coordinate although it played no role at all for the regions of megacities in the 1st century. This of course is a clear indication for intense changes of priorities over the last 2000 years. So what does Leo stand for in astrogeography?
First of all Leo as the sign of the Sun and also in it`s role as a fixed sign indicates a particularly stable, prominent and magnetic role of fields with this aspect in the morphogenetic environment. The Sun is the largest object and the centre of our solar system. This explains Leo`s highly energetical, magnetical and stimulating effect. In the human body Leo relates to the heart which is the central giver of stimulus for all physical processes. And as such Leo stands for the center of emotionality of individual perception, sexuality, desire and power. In politics Leo as the sign of monarchy stands for centralism, absolutism and the rule and dominance of the center over the parts.
Leo`s magnetism seems to attract people and stimulate being in groups and crowds of people. In astrogeographic field study this aspect of Leo as an indicator for places which not only attracts people but also supports them with vivid, living energies and stimulation can be observed on all the radius/size levels of morphogenetic fields.
Leo seems to be the indicator for the world capitals. Moscow, Beijing, New York and Washington the four politically most important cities on the planet are located in Leo. An astrological explanation why this effect of Leo is so outstanding can mostly be seen in the reflex of Leo to concentrate power in the hands of one of few individuals or since we are talking about places – in one place.
Cancer and Virgo leaders in 100 AD still on top after 2000 years!!!!
Cancer and Virgo were the leaders of the list of largest cities worldwide in the year 100 AD and still take places 2 and 3 2000 years later. Cancer`s role as the “mothersign of urbanization” can be explained through Cancer`s role as the sign of drinking water ressources, motherhood, pregnancy, fertility and also of feeling at home. Virgo`s potentials which make the sign so favourable, and supportive for the development of megacities lie in it`s role as the sign reason, of health care, optimal use of ressources, strategical planning and storing goods.
Gemini loosing importance
Air sign Gemini has lost its important role as a major indicator for the region of megacities. Which conclusion can be drawn from this development? As the sign of road crossings Gemini`s role might traditionally have been based on it`s role as a crucial place for the large trading routes and on the stimulation Gemini provides for intercultural communication and exchange and for the development of technology. As the Mediterranian Sea lost its role as the center of the world the traditional shipping routes that connected the coasts of the mediterranean sea have lost their importance. The harbour of Carthage which controled the center of the Mediterranean Sea and the Silk Route which connected East Asia with Europe (Peshawar in Gemini) have disappeared. Gemini is not the factor that supports the largest urban centers anymore.
Thailand´s capital Bangkok is the only megacity on the 2014 list of largest cities whose strategical role as a gate and bridge between continents is comparable to that of the ancient Gemini megacities.
