Dakota Access Pipeline Project & Sacred Stone Camp in Astrogeography. Astrology, Politics and Places:
The “Birth Chart” for the Dakota Access Pipeline Project
“The Dakota Access Pipeline or Bakken pipeline is a 1,134-mile-long (1,825 km) underground oil pipeline project due for delivery on January 1, 2017. The $3.7 billion project became public in July 2014, and informational hearings for landowners took place between August 2014 and January 2015. Dakota Access submitted its plan to the Iowa Utilities Board (IUB) on October 29, 2014, and applied for a permit in January 2015.” (source: wiki article)
The horoscope for the day of the submission of the project to the Iowa Utilites Board in Des Moines may not represent the only plausible birth chart for the Dakota Access Pipeline. But it gives reliable data for its timeline. This can be seen from the chart itself: at 12:00 noon Pluto the indicator for closed up containers, metal working, welding, poison, the underground, fracking and indicator for artificially created not natural objects was exactly conjunct the ascendant and ruler of not only the Sun and Venus at midheaven in his own sign Scorpio but also of Saturn the ruler uf the AC in Capricorn. As the significator for the pipeline project Pluto (at 11° Capricorn) was in exact square to Uranus (at 13° Aries) the ruler of Aquarius sign of the sky, heaven and paradise and indicator for the reconnection with the fuller potentials of human nature, capacity and spiritual identity. As the planetary ruler of the underworld, alchemy, poison, lack of oxygen Pluto is not only the clearest analogy to any pipeline project but of course also the “natural” ruler of fracking. Uranus as the ruler of Aquarius is the planet of oxygen, open air, creativity, innovation, self-liberation, self-finding, abstraction, integral perspectives, alternative culture & technologies and of renewable ressources.
The square position between Uranus in Aries the sign of waking up, ignition, the warrior castes and new beginnings and Pluto in Capricorn the sign of the ruling classes reflects the fact that the Dakota Access Pipeline Protests are part of the battle between the forces of exploitation and destruction of natural ressources (Pluto) and the desire to liberate human potentials for innovation from being supressed by belief systems created to justify the domination of the ruling classes over society (Uranus square to Pluto). It has to be understood that the fracking industry and the exploitation of the last ressources of mineral oil on our planet by fracking is currently the main obstacle to the technical development and employment of renewable energies.
Dakota Access Pipeline Project
The North Dakota Oil Boom began in 2006 with the exploitation of the Parshall Oil Field producing from the Bakken Formation and Three Forks Formation near the town of Parshall, in Mountrail County, North Dakota.
Astrogeographic position of Parshall for morphogentic field level 1 which describes the supraregional meaning of the initial place of exploitation and triggering factor for the Dakota Access pipeline project: the astrogeographical coordinates are 4° in earth sign Virgo aspected though exact opposition of Neptune at 5°Pisces and 19° in earth sign Capricorn occupied by the Moon at 19°Capricorn in the DAPP sudmission chart. The intensity of the resonance between the astrogeographic position and the DAPP submission chart makes it quite clear that the chart can be used as a valid birth chart for the pipeline project.
The Dakota Access Pipeline will begin in the Bakken oil fields in Northwest North Dakota and will travel in a more or less straight line south-east, through South Dakota and Iowa, and end at the oil tank farm near Patoka, Illinois.
The Bakken Formation was first descibed by J.W. Nordquist in 1953 and named after Henry Bakken a farmer in Tioga, North Dakota.
Astrogeographic position of Tioga, North Dakota the place where the name of the Bakken Oil Field originated for morphogenetical field level 1 which defines the supraregional meaning of the discovery: The town is located at 24° of fire sign Leo sign of the Sun, petroeum as stored sunlight and power stations and 8° of easrth sign Capricorn sign of rocks.
Astrogeographic position of Patoka, Illinois where the Dakota Access Pipeline is supposed to end for morphogenetic field level 1 which defines the supraregional meaning of the town: the coordinate for the astrogeographical latitude lies exactly on the divide between fire sign Leo (30°) sign of the sun, light, petroleum as stored sunlight and power stations and earth sign Virgo (0°) sign of reason. The coordinate for the astrogeographical longitude lies at 10° of air sign Aquarius. The stunning exactitude of the position of the latitude on a divide between Leo the sign of subjective desire and gold rush and Virgo sign of reason, storing and utilization of ressources is a fascinating detail documenting how humans unconsciously select places that support the plans they make.
Sacred Stone Camp
“On April 1, 2016, an elder member of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe and her grandchildren established the Sacred Stone Camp to protest the Dakota Access Pipeline, which directly threatens the only water supply for the Standing Rock Reservation. Founded by LaDonna Bravebull Allard, the camp is on her private land, and is a center for cultural preservation and spiritual resistance to the Dakota Access Pipeline. Protests at the pipeline site in North Dakota began in the spring of 2016 and drew indigenous people from throughout North America as well as many other supporters, creating the largest gathering of Native Tribes in the past 100 years of American History. A number of planned arrests occurred when people locked themselves to heavy machinery in civil disobedience. Criticism has been directed at the social media website Facebook for assisting the local authorities in censoring the protesters.” (from the wiki article)
Astrogeographic position of Sacred Stone Camp 3 km north of Cannonball North Dakota for morphogentic field level 1 which describes the supraregional meaning of the protest camp and the protest movement as a whole: one coordinate lies at 22° of earth sign Virgo and the other at 26° of air sign Aquarius.
Sacred Stone Camp was opened with a Mercury-Uranus conjunction near 20° the degree of warrior kingdom in Aries the sign of warfare in a square to Pluto indicator for the Dakota Access Pipeline Project (see chart and interpetation above), for exploiting underground ressources, for fracking in general and through its position near the center of Capricorn the indicator for the encrusted hierarchies, habitual perceptions and racism that dominate the country, society and legislation.
Resonance of the astrogeographic positions of the Camp site with the planetary transits on 1 April 2016: Rahu the North node at 21° of earth sign Virgo the sign of the protection of nature, plants and spiritual entities of nature and of conservatition, mummification and the protection of the relation with the ancestor lines was exactly on the position of the camp site indicating that the protest is an extremely important attempt to heal the overall morphogenetic field ranging from Western Canada across the whole of the Midwest of the USA down to the Northern parts of of Utah, Colorado, Kansas and Missouri.
Chiron the ruler of Virgo at 22° Pisces was conjunct Venus the planet of profits and conquering & possessing territory and Ketu the South Node and indicator for the uncleared karmic issues of the racism of White Americans during the destruction of Native American culture were in exact opposition to the Sacred Stone camp grounds near Cannonball, ND.
Another fascinating astrological aspect is the position of Jupiter on 15° right in the very center of self-protective earth sign Virgo the sign of the protection of nature, plants and spiritual entities of nature and of conservatition, mummification and the protection of the connection with the ancestor lines.
