Astrology and Places: Checkerboard Mesa and the combination of Scorpio with Gemini
Checkerboard Mesa is a gigantic Navajo Sandstone Rock in Zion Canyon National Park in Utah.
Astrogeographic position for field level 3 which explains how the mountain is embedded in the area: Checkerboard Mesa is located in solid, fixed water sign Scorpio the sign of sculpting, strongholds and indicator for the stout, fortresslike shape of the rock and the way it is facing the road at it`s feet. The 2nd astrogeographical coordinate of the site is in movable air sign Gemini sign of signposts, roads, road – crossings which explains the contrast of the fat, solid shape of the rock with the open space at the crossing of Zion Canyon with two smaller canyons overlooked by Checkerboard Mesa.
Angels` Landing In Scorpio with Gemini
Another famous and highly impressive rock in Zion´s National Park is “Angel´s Landing” known earlier as the Temple of Aeolus (wind god), It rises 454 m above thr ground from ground of the canyon. A trail cut into solid rock in 1926 leads to the top of Angels Landing and provides a spectacular view of Zion Canyon. The trail to Angels Landing is a very popular hike for visitors to the park.
Astrogeographic position for field level 4 which explains the atmosphere and energetical topics of the rock itself: is located in solid, fixed water sign Scorpio the sign of sculpting, strongholds, towers and indicator for the stout, fortresslike shape of the rock and the way it is towering over the canyon at it`s feet. The 2nd astrogeographical coordinate of the site is in movable air sign Gemini sign of signposts, roads, road – crossings, bridges and indicator for the landings place for angels here.
The association of the site with a temple of the wind god Aeolus relates to the correspondence of the wind god with air sign Gemini. It reminds me of the resonance of Gemini with Hanuman the son of wind god from Hindu mythology and the position of his tallest statue in Gemini.
