The shark tank as a symbol for Las Vegas
Astrogeographic position for morphogenetic field level 1 which describes how the City of Las Vegas is embedded in the morphogenetic field of the USA: the astrogeographical coordinates of Las Vegas are 0°-3° Scorpio and 27°-30° Pisces.

The shark trank slide as an “emanation” of the combination of Scorpio with Gemini
Astrogeographic position for morphogenetic field level 4 which describes the atmosphere, energetical situation and topics of the hotel itself: the Golden Nugget has one coordinate in highly defensive, solid, fixed water sign Scorpio sign of containers, tanks, closed up spaces, visualization, sculpting and the astrological indicator for sharks. Sharks are related to Scorpio because of their intense stimulation through the smell of blood, the strength of their teeth and their symbolism as indicators for trauma in the experience gained from astrological practice and the psychoanalysis of dreams. The symbolism of the shark tank therefore is an expression of the role of the construction site in the local morphogenetical field.
Apart from that Scorpio in its role as the sign of the property and territory dominated by others is also the classical astrological resonator for dependence, foreign control, addiction and the things or partners we do not or can not possess. In the light of the insight that the “Golden Nugget” is located in Scorpio we have to assume that the hotel`s name refers to this aspect of the stimulation exerted by gold.
Gold is an astrological resonator of fire sign Leo the sign of the Sun, light, life, sexuality and emotional self-expression. Scorpio represents an archetype which stands for a square and aspect of tension with Leo`s archetypal symbols the heart, sexuality, gold and blood. More than any other sign Scorpio appears to be intensely challeged by the stimulations exerted through Leo. The Sabian Symbol for 6° Scorpio: “a gold rush” idescribes the intense stimulation effected by the visualization of gold in Scorpio. The 700 year old 5.5 tons Golden Buddha at Wat Traimit, Bangkok located in Scorpio with Leo is a perfect example for this topic.
The second coordinate lies in movable, functionalistic air sign Gemini sign of signposts, appeal through technological innovation, road crossings, communication, roads, connections, pathways and bridges. Gemini is the sign of pubercy, playfulness, gaming and the most important astrological indicator for gambling. And what makes the Golden Nugget so intensely symbolic of US american culture is also the fact that Gemini represents its first and most important astrological resonating sign.
The shark tank slide is a perfect symbol for the combination of the topics of Gemini with Scorpio.
