Exploring the magic of Sedona can be an absolutely wonderful journey and spiritual experience. I want to recommend reading the following report which I felt gives a great introduction to an authentic attitude for such a trip: ISIS ROCK Crown Chakra hike by Eileen Nauman
The Sedona Vortex System in astrogeography
The nervous system of any landscape has different aspects of energetical layers, grids and energy centers, chakras and or vortexes of subtle energy. My systemical astrological measurement of the morphogenetic surface field grid structures attempts to explore and recapitulate how single places are embedded in the overal field system, how they relate to the larger planetary grid system and which particular archetypal energetical stimulation affects them on a genotypic structural level.
The Sedona Vortex System is a fascinating and exceptionally beautiful case for such field study. Like at any other place in the world the energetical phenomena in the landscape around Sedona are subject to a variety of opinions, evaluations, mystifications and individual experience. The systemic astrogeographical field study has the potential for delivering a comparative overview over the meaning of the different approaches here. Vortexes are energetical springs. They have various different functions for the land and supply energy and information to living beings. The astrogeographical positions they are located in show which position they take in the interaction and relatedness of the single places in the surface field of our planet. In my Astrogeographical World Map I treat the 12 astrological signs as genotype structural elements on which material manifestations organize as their phenotype counterparts.
Here is the list of 7 major vortex sites in the Sedona area:
Bell Rock – a portal to the spiritual world
Astrogeographic position of Bell Rock for morphogenetic field level 3 which describes how the whole of the 450 m diameter rock formation is embedded in the land: the astrogeographical longitude coordinate lies in air sign Libra sign of gates, openness, love, relationships, peace, harmony, balance, beauty and angels. The astrogeographical latitude coordinate of the center of the rock lies exactly on the divide between the two spiritual signs Aquarius and Pisces. The north half of Bell Rock falls in creative, innovative air sign Aquarius the sign of the sky, heaven, paradise, self-finding, flying and reconnection with the spiritual plane and our fuller potentials stands for a place of connection between earth and sky. Mystic, spiritual water sign Pisces on the south half represents the sign of the unconscious, the dream world, the spiritual plane itself, imagination, mystification, fairy tales on the south half is the perfect and most frequent indicator for temples.
Cathedral Rock – heart chakra and majesty in two fire signs
Astrogeographic position of Cathedral Rock for morphogenetic field level 3 which describes how the rock formation is embedded in the land: the astrogeographical longitude coordinate lies in highly energetic, magnetic fire sign Leo sign of the sun, light, power stations, the heart chakra, sexuality emotional self-expression and self-centeredness, physiotherapy and lightwork. The astrogeographical latitude falls in dynamical, mental fire sign Sagittarius the sign of searching, aiming, watching, observatories, shamanism, initiation, philosophy, thinking, circles, cremation, lava, cleansing fires and sites of ritual fire sacrifice.

Boynton Canyon Vortex – connecting earth and sky
Astrogeographic position of the Boynton Canyon Vortex area for morphogenetic field level 3 which describes how the site is embedded in the land: the astrogeographical latitude coordinate lies in creative, innovative air sign Aquarius the sign of the sky, heaven, paradise, self-finding, flying and reconnection with the spiritual plane and our fuller potentials stands for a place of connection between earth and sky. The latitude coordinate lies in solid, fixed earth sign Taurus sign of mother earth, growing roots, market places, agriculture, food, possession of land and financial gains.
The Chapel of the Holy Cross
The roman-catholic Chapel of the Holy Cross in Sedona was completed in 1956.
Astrogeographic position of the Chapel of the Holy Cross for morphogenetic field level 4 which describes the atmosphere, function and energetical topics of the chapel itself: one coordinate lies in emotional water sign Cancer the sign of crabs, the uterus, caves, the moon, motherhood, pregnancy, fertility and emotional individuality & authenticity in modern art and architecture. Cancer is the perfect indicator for the shelter from the bright sunlight provided by the chapel as well as the way the church is safely built into the sheltering rock as a place of meditation. The 2nd coordinate lies in highly energetic, magnetic fire sign Leo sign of the sun, light, power stations, the heart chakra, sexuality emotional self-expression and self-centeredness, physiotherapy and lightwork. The two emotional signs reflect a site of emotional self-reflection and temple of fertility.
Astrogeographic position of the Chapel of the Holy Cross area for morphogenetic field level 3 which describes how the vortex site is embedded in the land: the astrogeographical longitude coordinate lies in air sign Libra sign of gates, openness, love, relationships, peace, harmony, balance, beauty and angels. The astrogeographical latitude coordinate lies in highly alert, self-defensive water sign Scorpio sign of fortresses, bunkers, caves, the underworld, sculpting, imaging and an important resonator for native american nomad culture.
The Sedona Chakra System
Here are the astrogeographical positions of the proposed chakra system at Sedona on the map below.
The astrogeographical position of the highest chakra falls in the combination of practical, materialistic air sign Gemini the sign of signposts, symbols, information, pathways, bridges, belief in technology, practical magic and an indicator for US american culture. The 2nd coordinate lies in highly alert, defensive, mental water sign Scorpio sign of imaging, sculpting, copying, nomadic cultures, competition in gender related hierarchy and the most important astrological indicator for native american tribal culture. These topics related to the highest chakra explain the unconscious purposes that guided the choice of this particular site for the crown of the landscape system. This indicates that technology and symbolism are taken as the gods of the land. A reflex that is highly symptomatic of the topics of selling cars and stuff or in the esoteric seminar industries stands for selling information and education.
The proposed area for the base chakra has a direct resonance with the constellation of the area selected for the crown chakra: Scorpio the topic of competition in hierarchy is also present at the base chakra. The second coordinate here is in Sagittarius the opposite sign of Gemini and as such also a somewhat direct resonance with the crown topics. Mental fire sign Sagittarius stands for the purpose of thinking, mental understanding, aiming, shooting, shamanism, initiation, preaching, ornamentation and the strife for luxury and success. Psychologically the combination of Scorpio with Sagittarius stands for the self-image and fame of heroes and dominant representatives of socially accepted role behavior.
The visualization of the Sedona Vortexes in the Chakra system map is from the metanoia website. The geometrical ornamentation of a perfect chakra system appears nice but just like any naive painting should be taken as an inspiration rather than a precise systemical approach. The problem with this kind of lifestyle esoteric industry is that it is attempting to overwrite the more authentic and honest approaches to the understanding not only of the landscape but also of our own personal spiritual perceptions, experiences and along with that our identities. A useful comparison of the effect of such visualizations can be understood through examination of the term “sacred geometry”. If the geometry is the sacred the spiritual relevance of the sacred is overwritten by the calculated triggering effect of the excitement about the geometrical patterns. Thus the term in itself creates an unsacred vision of the sacred by replacing it through geometry. And it is even symptomatic that the lifestyle esoteric industrialists of all things use unsacred geometry for creating high gloss images of the sacred..
