Aquarius with Pisces: The Ship on the Hill

Sun Cruise Resort & Yacht is a hotel in Jeongdongjin, South Korea designed as a cruise ship and built on a hill 50 m above sea level overlooking a beautiful beach. The ship house is 165 m long and 45 m tall.
Astrogeographic position for morphogenetic field level 4 which describes:the energetical situation, atmosphere and topics of the exact position of the hotel: the latitude coordinate lies in creative, innovative air sign Aquarius sign of the sky, heaven, paradise, flying, abstraction, provocation of habitual patterns of perception and the absurd, Bertholt Brecht´s allienation effect and going new unexplored ways. Though not the first natural indicator for motor ships Aquarius is also directly related to sailing and particularly to air and space ships. Thus Aquarius appears as the perfect indicator for the position of the ship on a hill high above the town and beach.
The longitude coordinate, valid for the full length of the ship house is located between mystic, spiritual water sign Pisces the sign of the ocean, imagination, dreaming, relaxing and holidays and highly energetic male fire sign Aries the sign of action, ignition, aggression, speed and sports. The sharp pointed ship-bow is a typical structural feature for Aries. A really fascinatingly typical example for this effect of places in Aries on the design of buildings particularly when combined with Aquarius is Sidney Opera House. The depiction of ships through architectural design at places located in Pisces is a frequent motif dealing with several symptomatic reflexes in Pisces as e.g. the fear of drowning, living on water, facing the uncontrollable, unknown, unsconscious symbilized by the oceans.
Sidney Opera House was built in the constellation of creative, innovative air sign Aquarius sign of inventions, mutations, self-finding and inspiration with dynamic, male fire sign Aries sign of igfnition, action, speed, strength, warfare, sports. This combination is valid for astrogeographical radius/field level 3, which shows how the construction site on a small peninsula is embedded in the surrounding area in the harbour of Sidney. This highly dynamic astrogeographical combination stands for mutation, innovation and attempts to materialize ideals and inspiration. It stands for starting something new and for the focus on direct action and revolution. In regard to the function as an opera house it indicates that experimental art and architecture have more importance here than the mere listening and reception of sound or music itself. In this sense the site does not indicate a concert hall in the sense of a place for listening or feeling the music in the first place but rather a site for inspiration. The constellation may rather support rythm and particularly the atmosphere of fire sign Aries could be to some extent in conflict with melody. No wonder that despite its name the building is a center for performances of all different kinds of arts. The building hosts 2 concert halls, 3 theatres and a couple of restaurants and bars. Before the beginning of construction work on the new opera house the construction site hosted a tram repair center.
The roof consists of white elements that can be seen as pieces of oyster (pointed form) or egg (white colour) like shells and possibly also a ship´s sails or even its nose. Because their form unlike shells or sails is pointed into the air in a curved way so that their shape is a bit bent and thus kind of overstyled, there could even be the association of beaks or claws. This male or as it is seen in feng shui agressive element of form where energy and awareness are concentrated towards the tips is to be considered as a typical feature of fire sign Aries. Among other aspects Aquarius stands for the prominent and „far out“ position of the site on the tip of a peninsula that reaches out into the harbour. The association of the shape of the building with sails or tents would have to be seen as related to air sign Aquarius the sign of the wind and most important astogeographical indicator of sails as well as of tents.
