The 2nd Tallest Building in the World: Tokyo Sky Tree Tower
The Tokyo Sky Tree broadcast and communication tower is 634 metres high and the second largest building in the world next to Burj Chalifa in Dubai. It was officially opened to the public on 22 May 2012. The construction site is located in the constellation of the earth sign Taurus with the air sign Gemini. This is valid for the astrogeographic radius level 3 which describes how the place is embedded in the surrounding area.
As in the case of Burj Chalifa Taurus stands for the stability of the place itself and indicates the motif of growing roots here. This could help the buildings to be energetically and socially grounded and as the sign of the market places Taurus could stimulate financial profits here. The tower has two platforms with restaurants for visitors – one at a height of 350 m and one at 450 m. Taurus clearly is the most important sign for the position of the tallest buidings in the world. The three tallest buildings have one astrogeographical coordinate for radius level 3 in Taurus and among the Top 11 seven have one position in this sign (see table below).
Gemini as the sign of communication may be symptomatic of the purpose of broadcasting radio and tv from here. The previous broadcasting facility had no longer been able to fully cover the region because of the great amount of tall buildings in Tokyo.
On the day of the official opening all the personal planets except Mars were lined up in the corresponding signs of the site. This coincidence documents the precision of the astrogeographical calculation and could mean that the building is of great interest or significance to the citizens. Its opening took place 1 year after the Fukushima Earthquake Incident. Construction of a building of such a height in an earthquake related region is highly symbolic here as a reply to the traumatic experience of the Fukushima incident.
