Robert Bruno`s Steel House is located in Cancer with Virgo 

The Steel House was built by sculptor and architect Robert Bruno over a period of 23 years out of steel and glass

Astrogeographic position for the “Steel House” for morphogenetic field level 4 which describes the atmosphere, energetical situation and topics of the construction site is itself:  the “Steel House” has one coordinate located in practical, functionalistic earth sign Virgo sign of reason, self-protection, strategical planning, optimal use of given ressources, seeking shelter, recycling, preservation and mummification, gardening, plants and parks and the relationship with spiritual entities of nature. Virgo so refers to the ideal of placing a house in the middle of nature far from any settlements. Virgo also relates to the topic of a self-made house whose construction took the architect years as  in the case of the Palais Ideal located in Virgo with Sagittarius. The second coordinate of the Steel House lies in emotional water sign Cancer the sign of crabs, feeling at home, emotional identity and independence, rivers and river beds (canyons). A really fascinating trait of the sign of Cancer is the way the house resembles a hermit crab (Pagurus bernhardus).

Using rusty steel for a material is a trait here of both signs: Virgo because of the  motif of using apparently recycled material and Cancer because of the priority of the personal, subjective ideal and the “cozy” atmosphere of individual and independent taste gained from that preference. The rusty colour may be associated with both signs Virgo´s bordeaux red (as at Jokhang Temple) and the pink/red colour of Cancer`s relationship with the mucuous membranes.

Kathski Pillar in Virgo with Cancer

The stunning parallels between the position of Kathski Pillar and the Steel House lie in the position on the side of a hill, overlooking a canyon but from a comparatively sheltered position below the top of the hill, in a hermit-like position away from any settlements and above a river bed (canyon).

The Katskhi pillar is a natural limestone monolith located at the village of Katskhi in western Georgian region of Imereti. The rock, with visible church ruins on a top surface measuring 150 m2, has been venerated by locals as the Pillar of Life and a symbol of the True Cross, and has become surrounded by legends.The ruins are the remains of an early medieval hermitage dating back to the 9th or 10th century.

The Sculptured or Sleeper House in Virgo with Aries

The Sleeper House (also Sculptured House, Starship House, Eyelid House) was built by architect Charles Deaton in 1965.  It is featured prominently in the 1973 Woody Allen sci-fi comedy Sleeper. The parallel with the Steel House lies in the astrogeographic position in Virgo and on the location on the side of a hill.
