The two magical island have several aspects in common: they are both dedicated to Archangel Michael the guardian between the realms of the mental (Sagittarius) and spiritual (Capricorn) spheres. Both islands are round and due to their location just a few hundred meters of the coast have had a strategical importance which led to the construction of strongholds on each of the two. And both are located in fire sign Sagittarius the sign of druid culture indicating their importance as sacred sites in the pre-Roman times of Celtic and megalithic culture.
Saint Michael`s Mount in Sagittarius with Aquarius
Astrogeographic position of Saint Michael’s Mount in Cornwall for morphogeneticvc field level 3 which describes the atmosphere, energetical situation and topics of the island itself: one coordinate falls in highly dynamic, mental fire sign Sagittarius the sign of the priest and druid castes, luxury, knowledge, initiation rites which is a clear indication that the site apart from it`s role as a strategically important stronghold has a natural important for shamanic rituals for ages. Sagittarius which is also present at the Stonehenge calendar building indicates the use of the site not only for observation purposes and studies but also for initiation rites, sacrifice and burning rituals such as cremation. Sagittarius as the sign of the bow of course also describes the potential of the small island as a watchtower and in case of war for a highly comfortable retreat for shooting at attacking enemies. Although Sagittarius is the sign of the priest caste it`s intense relation with warfare and worldly matters indicates a mixed and not an exclusive use for either one of the different purposes. And Sagittarius also stands for conic (shaft-like) as well as the round (bow-like) shape of the island. This particular aspect of the sign is also what relates it to the concentration on mental perception, observation, “encircling objects by thoughts” and the understanding of cyclic events as so to speak the “hardware of time”. For the relationship of places in Sagittarius with a conical shape compare the position of Shwedagon Pagoda in Sagittarius.
The second coordinate at Saint Michael`s Mount falls in creative, innovative, spiritual air sign Aquarius the sign of the sky, heaven, paradise, self-finding. abstraction, holistiv vision, self-liberation and an indicator for an energetically Aquarius` role as the “outpost of society” or site for the outcasts is reflected in the partly isolated topographical situation of small peninsulae like for example at Gibraltar (Aquarius-Taurus) or Sidney Opera House (Aquarius-Aries), Palm Jumeirah (Aquarius-Aries) and Península de La Magdalena (Aquarius-Sagittarius). In regard to spirituality Aquarius as the sign of self-finding stands for the use of Mount Saint Michael as a retreat for meditation and other practices for druids and monks. In regard to the four elements it stands for the reconnection with the air element, the open sky, the winds and outer space.
Mont Saint Michel in Sagittarius with Taurus
Mont Saint Michel is a small island about 1 km off the coast at the mouth of the Couesnon River in Normandy, France. The island is reported to have held strategic fortifications since the 8th century.
Astrogeographic position of Mont Saint-Michel for morphogeneticvc field level 3 which describes the atmosphere, energetical situation and topics of the island itself: : Mont Saint Michel is located in the last degrees of fire sign Sagittarius which just like in the case of Saint Michael´s Mount should serve as the indicator for the round and conic shape of the island. Highly dynamic, mental fire sign Sagittarius the sign of the priest and druid castes is a clear indication that the site apart from it`s role as a strategically important stronghold may have been used for shamanic rituals for ages. Sagittarius which is also present at the Stonhenge calendar building indicates the use of the site not only for observation purposes and studies but also for initiation rites, sacrifice and burning rituals such as cremation. Sagittarius as the sign of the bow of course also describes the potential of the small island as a watchtower and in case of war for a highly comfortable retreat for shooting at attacking enemies. Although Sagittarius is the sign of the priest caste it`s intense relation with warfare and worldly matters indicates a mixed and not an exclusive use for either one of the different purposes. And Sagittarius also stands for conic (shaft-like) as well as the round (bow-like) shape of the island. This particular aspect of the sign is also what relates it to the concentration on mental perception, observation, “encircling objects by thoughts” and the understanding of cyclic events as so to speak the “hardware of time”.
A closer look at Mont Saint Michel: the sequence that shows the bazar street starts at 1:16. It is very illustrative of the role of the Taurus aspect as the indicator for market,places, buisiness and food.
The second coordinate of Mont Saint Michel falls in solid, fixed and highly profitable earth sign Taurus the sign of market places, town centers, agriculture and food which explains the large potential of the site for commercial use. This aspect is strongly multiplied by the combination of Taurus with highly expansive Sagittarius. Therefore the abbey founded at Mont Saint Michel in the 8th century is not to be considered as a site of spiritual practice in the first place but as a site dedicated to conquering, possessing and defending the coastline here for the Franconian empire.
Saint Michael Leyline in Astrogeography
Compare: Glastonbury Abbey and Tor,
The definition of Ley- Lines was first introduced by amateur archaeologist Alfred Watkins in his books Early British Trackways and The Old Straight Track. For more information about leylines see the article on ancient-wisdom.co.uk or other pages like the Thomas Piketty Blog …… or videos:
Saint Michael Leyline explains the resonance between Saint Michael´s Mount and Saint Michael`s Church on Glastonbury Tor. But it is more than that: there are a number of extremely important and highly energetic places on this Leyline. I have calculated the astrogeographical positions of a number of places along Saint Michael Leyline to study their individual qualities and also get an idea about the underlying hidden patterns that relate the places with each other. The following list is calculated for morphogenetic field level 3 which describes how a place is embedded in the surrounding area. I had the choice of using either field level 4 which would describe the atmosphere of a site itself, but found the results for field level 3 more convincing. The fields for field level 3 are about 1,2 x 1,6 km wide.
As can be seen the three most frequent astrological signs among the coordinates of the sites along Saint Michael´s leyline are in highly dynamical, stimulative, male signs like the two fire signs Aries and Sagittarius and intensely electrical Aquarius. Glastonbury Tor having both coordinates in Aries the sign of action, speed, ignition, self-defense, warfare and knighthood has the intensest possible activating constellation here.
The female more receptive signs like Cancer, Taurus and Virgo are also present but are less frequent. Their role would be to stabilize and reconnect the flow of energy and the moving spirit of the living beings. Taurus as the sign of the earth has the role of grounding. Virgo as the sign of the protection spirits of plants and nature would be there to relate the the beings to nature. And Cancer the sign of emotional individuality had the role of relating living beings to their own interior energies, emotions and soul. Avebury and Stoke St Michael which are located in a constellation related to the earth and mother godesses seem to be the most important of these sites on Saint Michael`s leyline.
Pisces the sign of temples and the spiritual plane and Capricorn the sign of mountains, rocks and barriers only occur once. This could mean that places in this signs are either too relaxing (Pisces) for the flow of energies to continue or simply natural barriers and therefore not really typical parts of an intensely dynamic Leyline system.
The two mouths Carn le Boel and Hopton-on-Sea
A comparison of the atrogeography of the sites which connect Saint Michael´s leyline with the ocean reveals an interesting polarity of Carn le Boel on the south coast and Hopton-on-Sea on the east coast of England. Carn le Boel is located in the combination of dynamic fire sign Sagittarius the sign of travelling with air sign Libra the sign of doors and openings. The combination of a fire with an air sign stands for heat. At Hopton-on-Sea self-centered emotional water sign Cancer the sign of beaches, motherhood, fertility, pregnancy and springs meets with highly defensive, fortress-like, stable, fixed water sign Scorpio the sign of closed containers. This combination sort of suggests the energetical situation of a well or tank. Hopton-on-Sea is not a mouth or gate in the first place but a highly defensive, self protective site which stores and holds the energies that flow here through the leyline. In terms of electrical power therefore the Hopton-on-Sea would be considered as the negative and Carn le Boel as the positive pole.
