That can be concluded from the astrogeographical resonance degrees of the egyptian City of Amarna which was used by Pharao Akhenaten in his attempt to establish a monotheist sun religion by abolishing the older egyptian pantheon.

The Church of the Holy Sepulchre also called the Church of the Resurrection is located in the Christian Quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem. For field level 3 it lies in the same morphogenetic field as the Temple Mount wich falls in Pisces with Taurus. According to traditions dating back to at least the fourth century, it contains the two holiest sites in Christianity: the site where Jesus of Nazareth was crucified at a place known as “Calvary” or “Golgotha” and the empty tomb where he is said to have been buried and from where he resurrected after 3 days.
The authenticity of the site as the true Golgotha and tomb of Christ may be improbable. But the site has functioned as a center of pilgrimage and a symbolic site of christian inheritance for as long as 17 hundred years.
The Church of the Holy Sepulchre is located right next to the Muristan a complex of streets and shops which was the location of the first hospital of the Knights Hospitallier. When rebuilding the City of Jerusalem in 130 AD Emperor Hadrian built a large temple to the goddess Venus on the site which later became the place of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.

The position in Cancer is valid for the supposed site of the tomb as well as for the site of the crucifixion to the east of the Sepulchre Church. With all its potential for melancholy and sadness Cancer so resonates with the topics of pain from the torture, murder and death of Jesus here.
The coordinate for the astrological latitude lies right in the very center of earth sign Taurus the sign of the earth, grounding, growing roots, market places, local energetical centers and of profitability. Taurus is the major indicator for the position of ancient town centers and places of the foundation of cities. In regard to the function of the site as an extremely important pilgrimage place Taurus stands for its attractiveness and the profits made through the pilgrims. The astrogeographical position in Taurus strongly resonates with the Temple of Venus built here by Emperor Hadrian after 130 AD.
